Rules

Stolen and modified from Plotinus, with permission.

important bit

  • 14-day day phase, 48 hour night phase
  • Majority lynches
  • 72 hours before prod, 24 hours before replacement
  • No Bah posts allowed
  • If a replacement is necessary (by request or not), once I post that I am searching for a replacement, the player being replaced should not post again until the game is over.
  • Don’t be a dick



  1. Follow all site rules.
  2. Mod colour - My mod colour is Burnt Orange; don't use it.
  3. Behaviour - Don’t be a dick. This is a heated game but below the belt attacks will not be tolerated. Attack the play not the player.
  4. Don't talk about ongoing games - You may not talk to each other about this game outside of threads I have created for this purpose. You may not talk about other ongoing games in this thread.
  5. If you have any questions, you may ask in thread or PM me.
  6. Tiny text is not allowed and is also of the devil, keep it 70+ please.
  7. Provable randomness - is against the rules. Saying that you rolled a dice is fine, using dice tags or random.org is not.
  8. Cryptography - is forbidden. Breadcrumbing is okay.
  9. Confirmation - You have about 48 hours to confirm your role and your alignment by PM. Game will start sooner if everyone confirms. Posting in a private topic counts as confirmation.
  10. Days - Days last about 14 days, generally rounded to the nearest half hour. Extensions may be granted if there are replacements.
  11. Activity - You must post at least once every 72 hours or I will Prod you. You then have 24 hours to post in the game thread or I will replace you. If you need to be absent for longer than this, you should declare V/LA in bold in the thread like this: [b]@Mod: I will be v/la until Thursday[/b].
  12. Prodging - A naked "prod dodge" does not reset the prod timer. To avoid being prodded/replaced for inactivity, include some game advancing content in your prodges, such as "got prodded; xxxx is still scum."
  13. Quoting - You may not quote (or copy paste) any private information into the thread, including your role PM and any mod communication.
  14. Voting - Votes must be in bold in the format VOTE: Drixx or Vote: Drixx. Strong preference for using vote tags instead of bold tags. Unvotes are nice but not required. If I think it’s a vote, it’s a vote, no tricks. Type [v]Drixx[/v] to vote and [uv]Drixx[/uv] to unvote.
  15. Lynching - Days end early when a simple majority of players (50% of living players + 1 rounded down) vote to lynch somebody. If a majority is not reached at deadline or if a majority of the players vote for no lynch, the day will end without a lynch. At evens, 50% is sufficient for no lynch.
  16. Twilight - Begins when a majority is reached and lasts until I lock the thread. You're still alive until I flip you so you can talk in any game threads you have access to until then, but no votes or unvotes will be counted.
  17. Night - Night lasts about 48 hours. Life happens.
  18. Action submissions - You may submit actions via PM (if town) or PT (if scum). If the actions are not submitted by the deadline then you do nothing. You can change your mind as many times as you like before the deadline. I will always use the last action submitted before the deadline.
  19. Reminders - If I don't hear from you about your night actions, I'll PM you 24 hours before the deadline. This doesn't count as a prod. If I still don't hear from you, you will take no action.
  20. Play to Win - and have fun!

Hi guys. We got a great bunch here. Y'all are in good hands for this game. Thor was my first IC and he's a very respected player as both alignments. This can seem intimidating at first but jump right in.

IC speech


tl:dr - this entire commentary block is all about introducing myself as the IC, blathering about my duties, and offering a basic idea of some of the strategy of the RVS. If this interests you, please read on (especially if this is your first time playing here) if not, feel free to skip.
Spoiler: IC Intro
===========================================================================================

Greetings,

I am Thor665 and I am the Inexperienced Challenged (IC) player of this group. 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. 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 amazing 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. 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.
3. It's a game - have fun.

We are now starting what is known as the RVS (random voting stage). We are in a low information period because scum already know who they are, and even have a rough idea of what power roles may or may not be in the game. It is now town's job to root them out. Because the start of the game leaves us with no information to start with generally the way to start is to begin voting and questioning other people to see if you can catch them doing something scummy (scummy actions being acts that a scum player is more likely to do then a town player).

Awesome! We're starting! Thor was quick to catch onto the seemingly random vote for Desmond_13 by Nahdia, so I think I'll go with that.

This is RVS stage. Thor isn't going to vote himself.

The question would be, if attempting to read into these votes is why did Nahdia and copper not vote Thor?

Wouldn't it be shadier to copy someone's vote? Titus, you voted first so my guess is that your vote was completely random. I bet Nahdia's vote was equally random (probably), but Thor copied Nahdia's vote, making it not as random-looking. This is my first game so I could be wrong, but that seems a bit shady if you ask me, as does Copper catching onto Thor's vote like that.

It's RVS. I have gotten a rock solid case out of RVS once in my career. So you are thinking Copper/Thor, push on it. See where it goes. Thor will reply soon.

I disagree, Percifrax. Forming early wagons is usually better than novel votes because it makes for better reactions.

That said, I didn't want to vote Thor. And my vote on Desmond was not entirely random.

Hmm you both have really good points there.

I've been thinking about what you said about Nahdia and Copper, Titus, and and I'm confused about one thing. Going by what Nahdia said about wagons, wouldn't it make sense for Copper to jump on the one that Thor started rather than yours (voting for Thor)?

Eh, you can't expect everyone to have the same thought process, even if they may be the same alignment. Also, I probably woulda unvoted if Desmond was suddenly put at L-1 >_>

If my vote on Desmond is "bad" that why is Copper's vote on Desmond not as bad?

Why is the vote Desomnd train (with three votes) better than the vote Thor train (two votes)?

In post 20, Charloux wrote:But seriously guys; Wagons are good and all, but i don't think we should bring people to L-1 in a newbies queue, accidents tend to happen and all.

So was your hammer intent a joke or no?
If you think wagons are good - why should wagons not go to L-1 in a newbie? Is it only because you think Newbies are likely to speed lynch someone for no reason, whereas other players don't? Because I have a lot of experience to suggest otherwise.

Also, if you don't think we should get him to L-1, what do you think we should do instead? You offered no alternatives.

I can't see this as anything more than a joke?
And i don't like L-1 in newbies because there MIGHT be a bigger idiot than me who would lynch by accident.

Okay, what do you suggest we do otherwise?
I mean, at some stage obviously you support a big wagon - what's the timeline, and what do we do in the meantime?

No one had asked for a claim, and I'll admit I find this one a bit premature.
That said - other than claiming, what do you think of how the day has gone so far?
