Rules


General
  1. The are, as always, in effect. Please look over them if you are unfamiliar.
  2. I am the Mod and what I say goes. I reserve the right to change the rules or modkill/force-replace players as I see fit.
  3. That being said, I'm not perfect. If I've messed up or you have any problems or questions, feel free to PM me.
  4. Preface all in-thread messages to the mod with @Mod.
  5. Punishment for breaking any of the following rules is on a case-by-case basis and is therefore not fixed. Don't test me.
  6. This is a game. Play to win, and don't ruin it for others.

Posting and Voting
  1. I hereby reserve the colours #504020 and #60A010 for mod use. Don't use them.
  2. Do not use invisible, encrypted, or ridiculously small text. Everything posted in the game thread should be public.
  3. All votes must be written in bold or use the VOTE: Player tag. Unvotes are helpful, but not necessary.
  4. Votes may not be contained inside quote, code, area, or spoiler tags.
  5. A lynch is reached when a majority of all players (half plus one) are voting for the same target.
  6. If a majority is not reached by the deadline, a No Lynch will occur.

Activity and Deadlines
  1. Failure to post within 48 hours without advance notice will result in a prod.
  2. You have 24 hours to respond to a prod, lest you be replaced. Regardless, four prods will result in a force-replacement.
  3. If your role gives you access to a Private Topic, you may request that your partner be poked. This will not count as an official prod.
  4. Please give notice of extended leave in-thread or via PM.
  5. Each Day Phase will last two weeks (14 days) and Night Phase will last 48 hours. Extensions may be given in case of replacements.
  6. A missed Night Action will result in a No Action.

SetupThis game uses the setup Matrix6.

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

Each Newbie Game is randomly assigned 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.

The Natural Action Resolution system will be used for determining Night action effects. Roleblocker actions will take precedence over Jailkeeper actions should that apply.

Does the opening post remind anyone else of the movie Oblivion?

That movie was good. Not quite 'so good', but still pretty good.

Anyways, to the game at hand.

VOTE: BlueBloodedToffee

My strategy is a simple one, but I'm not ready to share it yet. Also, I like where GGG is going with this. I am currently willing to change my vote pending discussion.

So Slick adds another vote to bbt before he even comes online to notice he has been voted for once.

Okay KittenLicks, you have placed me in a position where I must confess my strategy. I voted for bluebloodedtoffee because they:

1. Have not spoken up yet in this session (suspect, but, your right, not too suspect given how early in the game it is).
2. It's the lowest in alphabetical order.

Besides, given that GGG already threw-down, it made sense. I'm most concerned about moving out those in this little town that aren't active participants in democracy. Don't trust 'em! If bluebloodedtoffee speaks up, I'll change my vote as soon as I'm next online, and I'm good to my word.

I admire your noted strategy KittenLicks, but is it the best one?

Also, incidentally, does our town have a name? Do we propose one?

Not highly scummy, no. My logic is as follows:
1) I have to vote for someone.
2)SlickDillinger is marginally more scummy than everyone else in my eyes, due to starting an RVS wagon immediately like that when the game has barely started and suggesting some vague strategy that they cannot share.
3)Vote.

I would still consider my vote fairly random.

Quick terminology note: Does 'wagon' mean 2 or more votes (as opposed to a single vote)? That is what I took the meaning as in this post.

1) We must be a couple hours into the game, that is true of most people.
2) Perfectly valid. :)

I think it would be fun to have a name. :D I can't think of one off the top of my head, however.

Intro to who and what I am as your IC for this game. Recommended for Newbies to read.

Spoiler: Intro IC Post
Hello to all,

I am BlueBloodedToffee (BBT) and I am the Inexperienced Challenged (IC) player in this game. What this means is first and foremost - I am here to play this game with you in a way that will show you what it is like to play on Mafiascum.net and hopefully set an example for you to follow. I am here to win and should be treated as such.

My goals and the rules governing my actions are covered in this handy article: Being a good IC

That article is part of our MafiaWiki System. I highly recommend this system as a good way to get your feet wet and to find out what a lot of the common abbreviations mean.

There is a lot of play strategy discussed in there too. A lot of players consider that advice almost all outdated now. I don't recommend trying to run verbatim with anything there, but a lot of the basic advice is very good to at least be aware of as it can help you avoid blatant pitfalls as you become familiar with the game play here.

Now, as an IC I am here as a resource for you to ask questions of concerning game theory. I WILL NOT lie about game theory answers and will answer them to the best of my ability. I will also offer you the following quick pieces of advice;

1. Don't self-vote. (There are really no points during a Newbie setup where this is a good idea, please avoid it however logical you may think it is)
2. It's generally considered bad town play to simply hammer (place the final vote on somebody to cause their lynch) somebody without 'stating intent to hammer' first. This gives the person under threat of being lynched time to claim, if he so chooses, and make their final post(s).
3. This site frowns on lying if you are a vanilla town role. I strongly advise against lying if you have this role as usually it will only hurt town in the end.
4. It's a game - have fun.


With that out of the way

Do you find RVS wagons particularly useful for information?

Are you suggesting that everyone should 'randomly' vote for somebody else as long as they don't have a vote on them? Because I'm not sure that's random.

In post 11, KittenLicks wrote:Quick terminology note: Does 'wagon' mean 2 or more votes (as opposed to a single vote)?

A wagon can be made of a single vote.

Is there a reason you're abstaining from RVS?

So, you've changed your mind now? You don't want to wait and are happy to place a vote?

Why the change of heart?

Yup! Been doing a little research and such, and realised that there's really no difference if I vote now or later considering I can change my vote whenever.

This seems a little scummy this early. It appears you are trying to avoid making a decision for yourself and waiting to place your vote when you can just follow the crowd. How much mafia have you played off of this site.
