Ain't no rest for the wicked,
Money don't grow on trees,
I got bills to pay,
I got mouths to feed,
Ain't nothing in this world for free.

I know I can't slow down,
I can't hold back,
Though you know I wish I could,
Oh no there ain't no rest for the wicked,
Till we close our eyes for good.

Rules:

General Rules

  • <1>My rule is Law, I settle debates. If you reject my rules then it shall result in a Modkill. Though I am awesome, I still make mistakes. Please do not hesitate to notify me when you think I have made a mistake.
  • <2>Darkred is my color so don't use it. Using it will be seen as impersonating the mod, which is a punishable offense.
  • <3>If you have private communication with me, the mod. It has to be secret. I allow paraphrasing for Roleclaiming. If you don't know if your allowed to tell what was said then ask me first. Assume it is bad to do so before my answer.
  • <4>Time does not affect anything in this game unless it is a game mechanic. The use of Timestamps as a reason against someone is prohibited.
  • <5>You are NOT allowed to talk outside the thread with any other player unless specified in your role pm. This is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. I have seen people been banned from queues for breaking this exact rule. Don't get banned.
  • <6>Don't post the links to quicktopics that are used unless I give you permission. If you do, you will be modkilled.
  • <7>Claiming to be scum is prohibited. If you are scum, you are not allowed to claim your partners name. If you do, you will be modkilled.
  • <8>Don't use small, invisible, or encrypted text. If I can't read it, its unacceptable.
  • <9>If you find loopholes in any of the rules and use them it is considered not good sportsmanship and is punishable. This doesn't apply to game mechanics of course. If you find a loophole that seems important please do not hesitate to notify me immediately.
  • <10>Personal grudges are NOT acceptable. Period.
  • <11>Swearing a lot isn't tolerated by me. If you are angry. Take a quick breather, take a walk, but don't let loose in thread. Once or twice is alright, get the point across, I'd prefer if you didn't but a lot of people swear naturally. But overuse is not allowed. I hope you would know what the limit is.
  • <12>HAVE FUN!!!! This is a game.
  • <13>Modkills will be enforced, don't think I'm a coward. If you do something that is a modkill offense, It will be done in a way that hurts your faction. You will be changed to a nuetral surviver. And automatically lose. But don't constantly worry about breaking the rules, I understand if you accidentally do something you shouldn't.

Posting, Voting, Deadline and Death
  • <1>Deadlines are a fixed 3 weeks. If there is a replacement I might allow an extensions. Extensions will not be longer than 1 week. Period.
  • <2>If you are going to be on vacation or unavailable for some time please inform me in thread or through a PM.

  • <4>If you do not post in 72 hours you shall be prodded.
  • <5>If you do not respond to the prod in another 24 hours. You shall be replaced.
  • <6>If you get 3 prods, you shall be replaced automatically. I will be lax with this if you start posting efficiently after third prod.
  • <7>Votes must be bolded or will not be counted, if you make the mistake of voting without bolding I will inform you that your vote was not counted in thread.(Ex. VOTE: Playername) This should be made easier by the new vote and unvote tags.
  • <8>Unvotes are not required but appreciated. Please Unvote before voting again.(ex. UNVOTE: Playername)
  • <9>Abbreviations are acceptable as long as I can clearly tell who you mean.
  • <10>Lynches will happen when a Majority is reached. Majority is half of available votes plus one rounded down.
  • <11>If players so choose, you can vote for No lynch. Normal Majority is required for a No Lynch to pass.
  • <12>If at deadline there is no Majority, a No Lynch will occur. If there is a tie at deadline, a No Lynch will occur.
  • <13>Once there is a Majority, votes cannot be taken back. The decision is final.
  • <14>As soon as I have posted the scene of your death. You are no longer allowed to post in thread. I will allow 'Bah' posts as long as they are completely content less, and you are only allowed one.


Just have fun, follow the rules, play to your win condition, and you won't have any problems!

2of4 SetupThe 2of4 setup is a Semi-Open, wherein the actual game setup is randomly chosen as detailed below:

  • 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Role Cop, 5 Vanilla Townies, Sane Cop, Doctor.
  • 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Role Cop, 5 Vanilla Townies, Sane Cop, Jailkeeper.
  • 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Role Cop, 5 Vanilla Townies, Doctor, Jailkeeper.
  • 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Role Cop, 6 Vanilla Townies, Sane Cop.
  • 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Role Cop, 6 Vanilla Townies, Jailkeeper.
  • 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Role Cop, 6 Vanilla Townies, Doctor.

Note: If the Mafia Goon is lynched, then the surviving Mafia Role Cop is still able to submit both his factional kill and his Role Cop ability in the same night.

These are the Role PMs that have potentially been sent to the players:

Mafia-Aligned players:

Mod wrote:Mafia

name (a Mafia RoleCop) and name (a Mafia Goon) are part of the local Mafia crime family. Since your plot to quietly overtake the town has failed, you will attempt take it by force by eliminating the others until you outnumber the populace.

  • During the day, try to blend in with the normal Townies and attempt to get someone lynched.
  • During the NIGHT cycle ONLY, you may talk with your fellow Mafia (via QuickTopic, linked below) and choose another player in the town to kill that night.
  • One of you must send the moderator a PM with your choice of who to kill and who is performing the kill before the Night deadline.
  • The Mafia RoleCop has the ability to investigate another player and learn their specific role (Townie, Cop, Doc, or Jailkeeper).
  • One of you must send the moderator a PM with your choice of player that you want to investigate (usually along with the kill) before the Night deadline.
  • If the Mafia RoleCop is blocked by a Town Jailkeeper then the RoleCop will receive a PM stating “No Result”.
  • You may communicate privately via QuickTopic with your fellow Mafia up until the game thread is opened (this is called Night 0). Once the game begins, all outside communication must cease until the night cycle.
  • Please do not communicate with each other outside of the QT.
  • You win when the number of Mafia equals or exceeds the number of remaining Town players, whether you survive to the end or not.

Please Confirm by sending me a PM saying /confirm and your Role Name.

  • If the jailed player attempts to use a Night action (Investigate, Protect, or Kill), their action will not resolve.
  • If the jailed player is the target of a Kill that action will not resolve. Any other actions (Investigate or Protect) will resolve.
  • Neither you nor your target will be made aware of whether your own action was successful.

Woah! It's never a good idea to vote for people that can't defend. That's normally something that only scum would do to make the game move in their favour. I'm guilty because I didn't look at the list carefully, and you two did as well.

It's really early in the game and your first times, so I'm going to chalk it up to your first game on this site, but please, even though it is the RVS stage, think about how your post can influence the game. (I made a ton of bad moves on the first day during my first game. Nobody was courteous enough to explain it to me at the beginning so I'm telling you two this. )

Yeah, I mean random votes are fine right now. I just really didn't want a situation where a bunch of new people quickly hammer a guy in less than a few hours. I've seen it happen, its a scary thing.

@ak8: You've seen that happen? Really? Seems like we were a long way from that at this stage...Id definitely find that scary but I would think that'd be 1 in a 1,000,000.

How I always do mah random votes:
Original Roll String: 1d9
1 9-Sided Dice: (6) = 6

After a P-Edit: 3rd person on the playerlist is...VOTE: NovaDragon! We have our winner!

It wasn't a Day 1 thing. It was a Day 2 thing. It was a bit different though because someone fakeclaimed cop and threw out a random name and 3 people jumped on his target without thinking. It was still very shocking. You can look it up if you're interested. I don't recall the number but it's the last Newbie game that I was in.

Also, Dayum Maestro, do I win the Spanish Lottery? Also, is there a built-in die system? Because that would be cool... but I guess I could just interwebs for something like that too

Using a dice system is a bad idea, it minimizes discussion and prevents people from making revealing slip ups. Those kinds of mistakes help town, strange I know, this system therefore hurts town. If it was a useful methodology we'd all just roll numbers until someone had the adequate number of votes and move to day two, unfortunately we'd then be in an information-less bubble in day two too.
