Newbie Ruleset (stealthily lifted from Nobody Special)

Game Rules (Modified from Nobody Special, who modified them from Zorblag, who modified them from Vel-Rahn Koon):

General Gameplay and Etiquette:
1. You may not quote private Moderator-supplied information (either real or fabricated) of any kind. Paraphrasing (for role claims, etc.) is acceptable.
2. There is to be NO personal communication outside of the forum postings unless your role PM specifically allows it. Mafia members may communicate at night and during the confirmation stage.
3. If you have a role with a Night action your choices are due to me by the posted deadline. If I do not receive your choice via PM by the posted deadline you will forfeit your actions. In case of multiple submissions, the last valid one before the deadline will be used.
4. Roles with Night actions will not be able to submit an action on Night 0 (i.e. during the confirmation stage).
5. Any player with a Night action may instead submit a “No Action” PM to let the Mod know that you do not want to perform your expected action that Night phase.
6. As a general rule you should aim for one post every 48 hours, minimum, to keep the game moving.

Voting, Deadlines, and Player Death:
1. A simple majority (rounded up) of all living members must agree on one person for a lynch to occur prior to deadline.
2. Once you have reached a simple majority no further unvoting will change someone’s fate. Further votes will also be ignored.
3. Once a player is lynched the game enters twilight until I post a death scene; all players including the one who was lynched may continue to post during twilight.
4. Please submit votes as: Vote: PlayerName. Votes will NOT be counted if they are not bold! Obvious abbreviations or nicknames will be counted so long as they are unambiguous.
5. Please submit vote revocations as either Unvote: PlayerName or Unvote. Unvotes are not necessary before changing votes.
6. You may Vote: No Lynch - a simple majority of these vote types are required to send the game to Night phase without a lynch.
7. This game will have 3 week deadlines. If a player or No Lynch does not have a simple majority at deadline, no lynch will occur, and the game will go into night.
8. Ignore Rule 7.
9. Once you are killed (either via lynch or night kill) you may no longer post. This means that you do not even get a “Bah” post. The dead in this game are silent.
10. This game will have 3 week deadlines.
11. A majority of players voting for "No Lynch" are required for no lynch to occur.
12. If a majority lynch does not occur prior to deadline, then the player with the most votes will be lynched at deadline. In the case of ties, newest votes will be removed until a single player has the most votes.

Miscellaneous/Mechanics:
1. Bold, blue text is reserved for the Mod. No invisible/small text is allowed, nor is cryptography.
2. If you have an issue/problem with the game, please PM the Mod privately. Do not post issues/complaints in the game thread.
3. The Mod may make mistakes - please point out any mistakes gently. Mistakes will be corrected where possible, but sometimes mistakes are made that cannot be reversed. These will stand as final to be commiserated over after the game.
4. Please bold all requests to the Mod so that they don’t get missed.
5. Prods of missing players will be issued automatically after 72 hours of no activity or upon request after 48 hours of no activity. A prodded player has 48 hours to respond or risks replacement. A player who has been prodded 3 times is subject to replacement without further notice.
6. Rule violations will be dealt with according to their severity, up to and including a Modkill.
7. If you anticipate being unavailable for more than a 48-hour period please post a notice to that effect in the thread. Treat this game as a commitment. Be considerate – don’t leave us hanging.


The Golden Rule:

Please remember that this is a game and your main objective is to have fun! Be considerate of each other, don’t get personal, and enjoy the game.

What are the differences between frogs and toads?

They know, but do we?

You the frogs must find and eject the toads.

Hi, everyone.

And . . .

VOTE: Seratin

. . . because 'Seratin' starts with 's,' and so does 'scum,' so Seratin must be scum.

TS, yo! Fancy seeing you here!

Oh, and /confirm.

To get the pleasantries out of the way, I'm Voidedmafia, your friendly neighborhood SE (Semi-Experienced) player for this game. This means I have at least two finished games under my belt on this site (though I do have far more than two, of course!). Nothin' overly special, but I've picked up a couple things that I can pass on if TS ever forgets *wink wink nudge nudge*

Just a reminder, though: Please keep the first line in my sig in mind when addressing me! 9 hour workweeks, while cash-heavy, don't exactly give me good MS time to use, so don't be overly alarmed if I don't reply right away.

With that done...*cocks shotgun* it's time to get down to business.

Anyways, Glad to meet you all. Most of you I won't be familiar playing with (with the exception of VM from some horrible game in which I distinctly remember him lynching me D1. Let's hope that doesn't happen again.) but I'm very happy to meet you all. The memories of my first newbie game, 1050, still echo fresh in my head and I'm here to help you have as fun a game as I did in my first newbie game ¦D

Since this is my first time as IC since last June (well I'm in another ongoing newbie game as IC but that isn't finished) I'll be trying to follow this here guide. You don’t really need to read that, but it’s a good idea if you want to know what to expect from me this game. I will be treating this like a normal game, for the most part, except I’ll try to explain myself more than I usually would so you can at least see my thought process.

Myself and the SEs will be glad to take any questions from you about mafia at any time. There is no such thing as a dumb question. There is nothing more useless than an unasked question so go ahead ^^

Think of the IC as a teacher if you'd like. Like a teacher at school. There's always one really Awesomesauce teacher who you'd be so pleased to find out you had and all your friends would envy you because of it. Well that's me Well all ICs are teachers in that sense who are here to help you learn mafia and enjoy the game. It's up to you to make this IC game my favourite over the other group of newbies I'm with atm though :wink:

Anyways
The wiki is an interesting resource. It can be outdated in parts since the mafia metagame (how people play the game as town and mafia) is constantly changing but the effect of that isn't too great. However this is always a good read even if you just skim a little.

Overall you get out of mafia games what you put into them. Try to be active as it helps the town out greatly and you'll enjoy yourself far more by being active too (posting at least once every one or two days is ideal).
Playing to your win condition is key. The most important rule is to have fun though I think though :D

I strongly recommend that players get an avatar (little picture on their posts) if they haven't already done so. It isn't compulsory, but it helps us to remember you and associate you with your posts.

GL everyone

yeah, I didn't expect it either. I wrongfully assumed I'd be taken off of the IC queue when I rep'd into your game.
Oh well. I'm here to stay now if you'll all have me ('◠‿◠)

I feel old when I don't get the internet references anymore :<

Fun Questions to one and all
1) Have you played mafia before (on MS, another site, IRC etc.)?
2) How often can we expect to hear from you (At least once per day is a good baseline) and what timezone are you?

That'll do for now methinks~

Funny you should mention it, because that's actually a very old (relatively speaking) internet reference.

Q1) Yes I have played mafia on this site and other sites.
Q2) It depends on what work throws at me. It could be once a day or more. I could get yanked away for a few days, but I make sure to post and say if that's the case.

I'm EST.

It wasn't a perfect scumgame at all... Unless the perfect scumgame relies on some VI town to go and hammer the cop before he can even claim on page 5 >_>

He did two quickhammers in a row, btw. A perfect scumgame is a perfect scumgame (in that no scum died at all), but believe me I take no pride in that one at all.

In response to Twistedspoon's questions:

1. The only hands-on mafia experience I have is from playing a few in-person games when I was a kid.

2. I'm aiming for once a day, maybe more if the conversation is lively enough to warrant more contributions. There are a couple weekends I'll have to be V/LA, but nothing longer than 3-4 days, and I'll give advance warning. I'm on Pacific Daylight Time.

Hello all!
Do not fear for LD is here!
This is my second game on MS! My first one was Newbie 1,221 and it was increadibly fun but its not over yet so I cannot talk about it. I am currently also participating in Newbie 1,235.
I also have quite some experiance with the Starcraft 2 mafia custom game and it is one of the reasons for me to seek a site like this out. Those games are very quick paced and people lynch in the blink of an eye. Atleast here you have the time to think, make good cases and actually use your brains!

Im from Holland and am thus in the European time zone. I will be online a lot and will therefore post a lot, also I have a tendancy to keep my tabs open so youl probably see me looking at the site a lot of times.

VOTE: asher1611 for puking rainbows but noy giving us any gold!

Here is to a great game!
