Game Rules


Game Mechanics
1.) Votes must be bolded or contained within vote tags and in a form similar to Vote: Playername/VOTE: Playername. If I do not see your vote, it will not count. Unvotes are nice but not required unless you wish to be voting for no one. In this case you should post Unvote: Playername/UNVOTE: Playername.
2.) Unless it is explicitly stated in your role PM that you can do so, do not talk about this game outside of the game thread.
3.) Lynches require a majority of votes (50% of the active players +1). If a 50% + 1 majority is not reached by deadline the game will progress to night with no lynch. You may also Vote: No Lynch if you wish to have no lynch for the day. This also requires a 50% + 1 majority.
4.) Votes should be readable and understandable in their intent. You may use player nicknames/abbreviations/etc. as long as they are unambiguous. Trying to fool other players and the mod with your vote will result in a modkill.
5.) If a lynch occurs, the game enters twilight and players may continue to talk in thread until it is locked and a lynch scene is posted. No votes/unvotes will count in twilight.
6.) Players with night actions may submit them to the moderator via Private Message. If you do not wish to submit an action, please let the moderator know by PMing "No action" during the night phase. If you need to be V/LA during the night phase, you may submit your action early to be carried out during night.
7.) This game starts in Day Phase so that every player is allowed to play at least one game day.
8.) Communication, if your role allows it, is allowed via the details specified in your role PM until the game begins.
9.) Vote counts will be posted daily at a minimum (probably more often if activity warrants).
10.) Dead players cannot talk. Once you are killed/lynched. Do not post in thread. Not even a "bah!" post.

Deadlines/Activity
11.) Deadlines for each game day will be 2 weeks. Deadline extensions are given only in extreme circumstances.
12.) Treat this game as a commitment. If you are going to be away for over 72 hours, please post V/LA and your date range of limited access in thread and/or send the moderator a PM. You may also use the User Control Panel to indicate V/LA.
13.) Players must post every 72 hours (unless they have noted V/LA) or they will be prodded. Three (3) total prods during the game will result in a replacement. This is a minimum, you should strive to post every 24-48 hours
14.) If a player fails to pick up their prod within 48 hours they will be replaced. The player may rejoin the game only if a replacement has not been found when they respond to the moderator.
15.) Each night will last approximately 72 hours, during which time all night actions must be submitted via PM.

General
16.) All Mafia Scum Rules apply in this game. Please read and obey them.
17.) Have fun and be respectful to your fellow players. Personal attacks and excessive rudeness will not be tolerated and may result in a modkill without any warning.
18.) Do not quote anything from the moderator that is said outside of this thread (including role PMs) or pretend to quote anything from the moderator. Paraphrasing is allowed but if you are questioning your paraphrase, run it by the moderator via PM first.
19.) If the moderator makes a mistake, please address your grievance in bold in thread or in PM. Please point out vote count errors in thread only.
20.) Do not edit posts. Do not use invisible text. Do not use small text.
21.) Do not use cryptography.
22.) Dark Blue is the moderator's color. Do not use it.
23.) The moderator reserves the right to add/change/delete rules. If this occurs, a notice will be posted in thread.
24.) If a role PM or other game rule is misunderstood by the player or a rule is not made completely clear, the moderator reserves the right to correct the rule or PM based on its intent. The moderator guarantees that changes or corrections of these nature will be considered for overall fairness and game balance.
25.) Most importantly, play to win. Gamethrowing will not be tolerated.

Matrix6This Newbie game uses Matrix6 (as designed by Cogito Ergo Sum):

ABC
1Town JailkeeperVanilla TownieMafia Goon
2Mafia RoleblockerTown CopTown Doctor
3Town 1-shot
Bulletproof
Mafia GoonTown Tracker


Each Newbie Game will be given a setup that incorporates either one row or one column. The remaining six roles will be filled in by mafia goons and vanilla townies appropriately, to create a 2-mafia and 7-town setup. For example Row 1 (1 jailkeeper, 1 vanilla townie, 1 mafia goon) would add an additional 5 vanilla townies and 1 mafia goon, for a total setup of 1 jailkeeper, 6 vanilla townies, and 2 mafia goons.

This Newbie game uses the Natural Action Resolution system for determining Night action effects. Roleblocker actions will take precedence over Jailkeeper actions should that apply.

Spoiler: Sample Role PMs

good morning everyone (even you goodmorning!)

i'm one of your three se players in this game. don't be afraid to ask me a question, but seeing as a good number of the newbies in this game have played here before, there's 2 other se players, and we have a great ic, i think things are gonna generally be alright.

for the record this is my preferred posting style and unless i'm on my phone you'll have to deal with this. I can also type like this Or Like This If You Want BUT I'M PRETTY SURE THESE ARE LESS ENJOYABLE.

normally games start with a random voting stage, where people vote "randomly" in order to get the game rolling. for example,

VOTE: goodmorning

while that vote is part of our rvs/"random" voting, it's actually not random because i chose to specifically vote the ic player after also naming her specifically in my first line! there's always a reason for an action.

also last part since i want to start this game differently- a "random" set of questions that everyone should answer:

1) are you town or scum
2) do you wish you were the other alignment?

Hello all, I am your lovely IC. I am expected to help you learn to play the game, particularly in the context of this forum. Towards the pursuit of that goal, I will answer all your theory questions truthfully.

That's right, I will not lie to you about theory.

Now, you may be thinking "no fair, she's got more experience, clearly she will pwn newbs". That's only somewhat true. Some newbies have played many a game of Mafia elsewhere. Besides this, experience counts against me as well: you all are able to look up my past games and see how I've played in them. I can't because most of you don't have any. So it's a fairly even split.

Some helpful Wiki pages:
Quick Guide to Mafia
Quick Guide to Mafiascum
A Beginner's Guide to Being Awesome At Mafia

And some terms:
Glossary
Commonly Used Abbreviations

I also want to get this out now so as not to interrupt gameplay later:

The code for a big spoiler is this:

Some mods are fine with spoilering of REALLY BIG WALLS O' TEXT. Some are not. If in doubt, ask.

Hey guys. Second SE checking in. You can take a look at my wiki page for an idea of my experience. I, like the IC and other SEs, will not lie to you about theory questions. That said, many questions are answerable only with opinions, so take even our replies with a grain of salt.

I'll be using this color (#800000) as me SE text, which you may assume is outside my in-game persona.

In post 5, Marquis wrote:1) are you town or scum
2) do you wish you were the other alignment?


1) Town
2) No

These questions are not good RVS questions.

Marquis: Let's say you're a VT (Vanilla Townie) and a player has just soft claimed (That is, said they have a role, but didn't say which one.) a power role. Assume this is one of the first posts in the game. What is your reaction?

Voting Darkcrimson because I've played with him before and I want an early read on him.

VOTE: Darkcrimson

DC: You're about to be lynched with a wagon on you that you're sure has two scum. How do you respond if you're VT? What about if you're a PR?

To explain, those two questions can both be answered with a single word each. There's no real reaction that can be judged. Yes or no questions don't really push the game state, which should be the goal of asking questions. A lot of mafia players (myself included) want to get the game out of RVS and into a content-generating phase of the game as soon as possible.

Fair enough. Say that someone else tries to push a scumread on the player who claimed PR. They criticize it as rolefishing and confusing the town. What do you think of that player?

Alright, so you're completely seriously claiming a PR during RVS. What are your reasons? Do you expect to catch scum with it?
