Rules


1. This is a game. Have fun. Play to win but please don’t make personal attacks or use derogatory language. Just play your part and help to make the game fun for everyone!

2. All votes must be bolded or use vote tags, e.g. Vote: Huntress or VOTE: Huntress, and should be on a new line. Unvotes are not required.

3. A simple majority is required to lynch and when this has been reached any further votes/unvotes will be ignored. If deadline is passed before this happens there will be no lynch.

4. After I have announced a lynch or night-kill the dead player must stop posting in the thread and I will give them a link to the Dead Thread.

5. Days will last a maximum of two weeks (unless extensions are necessary), and nights will last 48 hours (or 72 if night commences on a Friday or Saturday). Any night action sent after the posted deadline will be ignored.

6. I will be prodding anyone who does not post for more than 50 hours without having given prior notification, and will be giving them 24 hours to acknowledge the prod by posting in the thread (or by PM if the thread is locked). If anyone doesn't acknowledge or needs prodding too often I will look for a replacement. Night will not end until any required replacements have been found.

7. If you know you are going to be unavailable to read the thread for a period of more than 48 hours, or are regularly absent at weekends, please indicate that in thread (and not just in your signature). If it is likely to be a long absence I may have to consider replacement.


8. Do not talk about this game outside of the thread unless your role PM permits it, and then only in the PT I have provided (which will be made public when the game is over).

9. Do not quote from any mod communication or PT. You may paraphrase them if you wish, but if you are not sure your wording will be acceptable then you are welcome to check with me first.

10. Please do not use invisible or very small text or encryptions, or use external documents. Please do not edit your posts if you have that ability. I will be posting in green so please don't use that either (although I'll make an exception for VCAs etc.). Also, please ensure that any colours you use show up clearly in both the MafSilver and MafBlack themes.

11. Any requests/points addressed to me in the thread (including problems with vote counts) should be bolded. If you have any complaints/problems with this game, or questions about your role, please send me a PM rather than posting them in the thread.

I reserve the right to add to or modify these rules if necessary.

Newbie Setup
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. The possible combinations are listed below.

Row 1: Mafia Goon x 2, Town Jailkeeper, Vanilla Townie x 6
Row 2: Mafia Roleblocker, Mafia Goon, Town Cop, Town Doctor, Vanilla Townie x 5
Row 3: Mafia Goon x 2, Town 1-shot Bulletproof, Town Tracker, Vanilla Townie x 5
Column A: Mafia Roleblocker, Mafia Goon, Town Jailkeeper, Town 1-shot Bulletproof, Vanilla Townie x 5
Column B: Mafia Goon x 2, Town Cop, Vanilla Townie x 6
Column C: Mafia Goon x 2, Town Doctor, Town Tracker, Vanilla Townie x 5

This game uses the Natural Action Resolution system for determining Night action effects. Roleblocker actions will take precedence over Jailkeeper actions should that apply. The 1-shot Bulletproof is a passive ability that cannot be roleblocked.

Hi Everyone! I'll be you're IC (Inexperienced-Challenged) player for this game. That means that I'm in charge of teaching you the basics of playing mafia, as well as being an actual player in the game. As an IC, I WILL NOT lie to you about game theory, how to play, common tells and the like. I know you'll have a lot of questions, so don't hesitate to ask me! :P

An important thing to note; I will write in this color when I'm talking about IC stuff, theory, answering a question, etc. Think of it as: You can believe anything I say in this color to be 100% true, because I am bound by those rules as an IC.

I'm excited to be playing with you all :D

Once the game ends, I'll post a game review for each newbie who played, so you can see all the things I thought you did well or that you could improve on. Obviously, you're pretty new to the site, so don't be afraid to make mistakes; we're all here to learn.


the basicsIn the next few sections, I'll cover some basic stuff.

Spoiler: How to Play
Your Job
Play to your win condition; this means the conditions that must be met in order for your faction to win the game, as specified in your role PM. (E.g. A Vanilla Townie's Wincon would be to eliminate all threats to the town. If you have questions about your role or your Wincon, don't hesitate to PM the Mod!)

As Town, your job is to erradicate all members of the scumteam. As scum, your job is to kill enough town members to outnumber them or nothing can prevent that from happening. If you get a Power Role (Cop, Doctor, Roleblocker), make sure you use it to your full advantage.

Voting

During the day, it is your job to vote for the player you wish to be lynched. Use vote tags like so:

Code: Select all
[vote]Aeronaut[/vote]


That will show up as VOTE: Aeronaut

You can unvote and revote as often as you'd like, it isn't final until a majority is reached. Remember, your vote is your best asset! It's what gives the your faction power. Use your vote to get reactions, vote for who you want lynched, etc. Don't be afraid to place your vote, as it can be changed at any time until a majority is reached.

Always try to have good reasoning behind your votes, your actions, etc. Information is necessary for every win condition, and it's people will be more likely to follow your lead if your argument makes some sort of sense.

Also, remember that you win with your faction even if you are dead. What this means: Imagine you are town, and are mislynched Day 1. You will still technically win if town lynches all of the remaining scum, so keep that in mind.

Spoiler: Some Terms and Abbreviations
Common Terms

Here's a quick non-perfect list of terms you may seen thrown around:

IC: Inexperience-Challenged player (that's me!)
SE: Semi-experienced challenged player. These are players with a good amount of experience on the site.
Scum: General term for non-town alignments, in the case of this game, the mafia players
L-#: The number of votes before a player is lynched. (Example, "Aeronaut is at L-4" means I am 4 votes away from being lynched)
LYLO: Lynch (correctly) or lose. This means that if a lynch on town occurs, the mafia immediately wins because they'll have at least 50% of the numbers.
BP: Bulletproof, a role that can get shot by the mafia once and not die.
Doc: Doctor, a role that can attempt to protect people from nightkills.
JK: Jailkeeper, a role that both protects and blocks its target.
Scummy: An adjective for any action (or player) more likely to come from or be mafia than town.
Meta: A player's past style of playing from completed games as a given role as compared to their current play.
PR: Power Role, any role that is not vanilla town or mafia goon.
OMGUS: (Oh my god you suck) is where a player essentially votes a player for voting them first. Considered not good play.
NK: Night Kill. The mafia's kill they get to use once a night.
PT: Private Topic: The hidden secret forum where the mafia may talk at night and pregame.
Crumb: A hidden message that can be revealed as needed or will be found after your death hinting on what you do with a power role, or that you are that role.
Claim: An outright claim of your role. Please note you may NOT post your role PM, you can only paraphrase it. DO NOT DO THIS UNTIL IT IS COMPLETELY NECESSARY.
CC: Counter Claim. This is when someone claims a role that makes a previous role claim false, exposing the previous player as lying.
Hammer: The vote that brings somebody from L-1 to lynched. IT'S IMPORTANT TO DECLARE INTENT TO HAMMER BEFORE DOING IT!
Mislynch: When town mistakenly lynches a player who was town.

Let me know if I missed anything!

Helpful Links

Also, here are some links that may also help you out.

Remember, the Wiki is your friend!

Spoiler: Common Etiquette (A MUST READ)
Etiquette

1. What the Mod says, goes. Period. If you have a problem with the way the game is run, take it up with the list moderator.

2. Stay Active! Games with a lot of inactive players are slow and boring and nobody likes that. Posting 1-2 times a day is great.

3. Don't start pointless arguments or personal wars; name calling and vulgarity isn't helpful to anybody, not even scum. Just don't do it, it makes game unplayable.

4. NEVER Self-hammer, Give up your teammates as scum, talk about ongoing games, or do anything to unfairly influence the game on purpose.

5. Finally, always remember that it's a game. People are going to get mad. The game of Mafia is not always a polite one; there will be heated exchanges and toxic situations. It's always important to remember that this is still just a game; we're all still just trying to win. Having said that, being as polite as possible makes for much more enjoyable games, but more importantly, will give you more charisma and influence within the town!



This is going to be a fun game hopefully, and don't forget, if you have a question, ASK AWAY! Try to make it pretty visible to me in case I missed it.
