Spoiler: Disqualified (Modkilled)



RULES

1) All sitewide rules apply. Read them here
2) This is my color. No using it under any circumstances, and no impersonating or pretending to impersonate the mod.
3) Play to your faction's win condition, as long as you do not break any game or site rules in doing so.
4) You may not discuss this game anywhere outside the game thread unless explicitly permitted to do so in your role PM.
5) Directly quoting your role PM, QT or private communications with the mod is strictly forbidden. Loose paraphrasing is permitted.
6) I expect every player to be civil and to treat eachother with respect. Mafia is a heated game, but I'll interfere if anyone resorts to excessive insults, personal attacks, or bullying.
7) No weird forms of encryption. Crumbing is perfectly OK.

Voting/Lynching Mechanics

8) For your vote or unvote to be counted, it must either be in the form of Vote: Aeronaut or VOTE: Aeronaut. Nicknames/abbreviations are fine as long as I know who you're talking about.
9) A lynch will occur when a majority of the votes are cast for the same player. (E.G. if there are 9 people left in-game, 5 votes insures a lynch)
10) You may vote for "no lynch" if you wish. If >50% of the players in the game vote for no-lynch, the game will progress to night without a lynch.
11) If you are killed, you may make one tasteful "Bah" post, but it must 100% non revealing of any sort of game information, or anything of that sort. It must be a farewell only.
12) Twilight phase talking is allowed.

Activity and Deadlines

13) Each Day phase will last two weeks.
14) Deadlines will be extended for replacement situations and exceptional circumstances.
15) Night phases will last for 48 hours.
16) In order to be accepted, night actions must be PMd to the mod or posted in bold in scum QTs before the deadline is up. If a player does not select one, he or she will default to "no action."
17) Players will be prodded after forty-eight hours without posting. All prods will be announced in thread.
18) Players who do not respond to a prod within twenty-four hours or need to be prodded three times in a game will be force-replaced.
19) If you will be unable to post for over forty-eight hours, inform the mod by PM or in the thread of when you'll be V/LA. Assuming the V/LA period is of reasonable length, you will be exempt from prods during that time. All V/LA notifications will be made public by the mod.
20)Please keep the game active! If you're in like ten other games and are planning on lurking through this, just replace out.

Other

21) I reserve the right to add, remove, or modify rules at any point of the game if it becomes necessary.
22) Pretending to break the rules is just as bad as breaking them, and will be taken just as seriously.
23) If you feel like I've missed something, or you feel I need to take action about something, please let me know in-thread or by PM.

ooh!

2. i like the people at dominion forum but part of the fun of mafia is making character judgments about people you don't know
3. thus far, i have been mafia twice and town once. at this point, i was happy to get town just because of that, but i also like town more because knowing everything is boring
4. i like target-investigative roles, the example here being tracker

My answers

Newbies
2. What made you decide to give MS a try?

I started playing mafia offsite on a site that is not strictly for mafia. I heard about this site from there and started playing on here when the community started to die.

Everyone
3. Do you prefer to play town or mafia?

I prefer town. I enjoy the investigative aspects of the game and puzzle solving.

4. What is your favorite/least favorite roles?

Least favorite: Bodyguard/Innocent Child
Favorite: Vanilla townie. I enjoy being a VT as I don't have to explain any night actions, have to rely solely on my puzzle solving abilities, and don't have to worry about putting a power role upon being forced to claim.

also since RVS is over and other reasons (early game I don't like to give reasoning for most of my actuons because it helps develop my reads), i suggest not answering TB's RQS

I am the IC and you're free to ask me questions.
  • I won't lie to gain advantage over you (even if I did, an SE could easily call me out).
  • Don't expect me to be god. I won't be the town that will find scum in less than 10 pages nor the scum that will fool you all.
  • Some things I say are opinions, doesn't mean they're correct.
  • I am still a standard player. I'll play for my win condition.

RVS

Stands for Random Voting Stage.

You have few to no posts to analyse, so, unless you're scum, you have no information to solve the game. So you're free to make joke votes, random votes or some weird discussions. Though, try to push something out of it. This phase shouldn't last more than 2 real life days, otherwise there's something wrong going there.

L-# and Hammer

A lynch is reached as soon someone gets over half the votes.
L-# stands for # votes to reach that lynch. L-1 means that player is one vote away from getting lynched.
Hammer is the vote that seals the lynch.

The reason we don't lynch too early in the game is to gather more information. We have 2 weeks of discussion and by lynching too early, you deny information to the town and can possibly mislynch a town PR. You should always call L-1 (preferably in bold in a new line) when you put someone one vote away from being lynched. If you see that, don't put another vote on them before declaring intent, there are some exceptions though. Doing that before declaring intent isn't scummy, but anti-town, which might lead to you being policy lynched.

Players aliveVotes to lynchWhen to call L-1
954
854
743
643
532
432
321 (not really needed here)


MyLo/LyLo

This is the point of the game where town can't lynch another town (Mislynch and Lose) or they have to lynch scum (Lynch (scum) or Lose). It's worth being more cautious here as scum can coordinate a quickhammer on a wagon if someone misvotes, I recommend using FoS (Finger of Suspicion).

TIP: If you see a wagon at L-1 during this stage and you're town, you can say "not hammering" as scum would usually quickhammer a town wagon. If you're scum and you know there's no way you can lose during the night, you can just quickhammer.

When it's MyLo/LyLo:
6 players alive with no scum dead (MyLo)
5 players alive with no scum dead (LyLo)
4 players alive with one scum dead (MyLo)
3 players alive with one scum dead (LyLo)

When to claim

Sometimes claiming might not be ideal. If you're a PR, you'll most likely be nightkilled/roleblocked (if there's one) next night. If you're a VT, you'll help scum narrow down the list of PRs.

There are some situations where you should claim:
  • When you're at L-1 and someone declares intent.
  • When you got an incriminating result (or you feel you got).
  • When you feel there's no reason to not claim anymore.
  • When town agrees on a massclaim.

Some expressions we use

Wagon: When someone accumulates votes.
AI/NAI: Alignment Indicative/Non-Alignment Indicative.
Town/Scum tells: Something town/scum is more likely to do than scum/town.
Sheeping: Following someone's read.
AtE: Appeal to Emotion.
LyLo: Lynch or Lose. When town must lynch scum to not lose.
MyLo: Mislynch and Lose. When town can't lynch another town.
FoS: Finger of Suspicion.
Lurk: Avoid getting engaged in discussion.
Meta: How someone played other games.
L-#: Number of votes needed to lynch.
Hammer: Vote that seals the lynch.
Twilight: After the hammer vote, before the mod locks the thread and flips the lynchee.
VT: Vanilla Town
Doc: Doctor
JK: Jailkeeper
BP: Bulletproof
RB: Roleblocker

Most important:

Always announce when you're putting someone to L-1, if you're unsure, count the votes.

Don't hammer without a claim, unless the player is openly refusing to hammer and deadline is approaching or there are no more claims to be made (such two PRs dead). Please, have patience though, it could save a PR's life.

Try to be the most active possible. Post your thoughts, ask questions, or if you don't have anything to say, at least make us feel your presence.

If you feel you're not having fun/demotivated, you can still replace out. We won't be mad if you do, we will if we have to wait 3 or more days for you to flake out.

Also, this day lasts 14 real life days, but don't wait until the last minute.

One week of discussion is pretty enough to start coordinating a lynch.
