Rules
Rules shamelessly stolen from various moderators.

Spoiler: General Rules
1. All site rules apply here.
2. You may not quote private Moderator-supplied information (real or otherwise) of any kind
3. There is to be NO personal communication outside of the forum postings unless your role PM specifically allows it. If someone contacts you outside the game, report it to me IMMEDIATELY
4. This game will start with a Day phase
5. No ciphers, encryption, extremely small text, or other similar tactics.
6. If you have the ability to edit, refrain from doing so.
7. It's your responsibility to read and understand all of the rules.

Spoiler: Activity
1. Aim for one post every 48 hours at a minimum.
2. After 48 hours of no activity, I will prod the inactive player
3. A prodded player has 24 hours to respond to my prod with a substantive post in game, after which time a replacement search will begin. I abhore prodging.
4. A player who has been prodded 3 times will be subject to replacement with no further notice
5. If you plan on being inactive for more than 48 hours, PM the Mod to notify you plan on being V/LA.
6. If you plan to have regularly scheduled V/LA period (e.g. the weekend) please PM the mod to notify

Spoiler: Deadlines
1. Days will last 14 days
2. Nights will last 48 hours
3. Extensions may be given out in extreme circumstances, and is up to the discretion of the Mod
4. If you have a role with a Night action, your action is due to the Mod by the posted deadline. If no action is received by the posted deadline, you may forfeit your action(s). Players with a Night action may submit a "No Action" PM to indicate to the Mod you do not wish to perform your action.

Spoiler: Player Rules/Voting
1. A simple majority of all living players must agree on one person (via voting) for a Lynch to occur (simple majority = ½ # of living players +1, rounded down). If no one has a simple majority of votes at deadline a No Lynch will occur.
2. Votes should be bolded or they may not be counted (e.g. Vote: Player). I much prefer Vote Tags. Please use them.
3. Unvotes should be bolded or they may not be counted (e.g. Unvote: Player or Unvote). Unvotes are helpful, but not required. I will love you if you use them.
4. You may Vote: No Lynch - a simple majority (as described above) of No Lynch votes will result in a No Lynch and a move to the Night phase.
5. Votes/Unvotes should be placed on a line all by themselves to make them easier for everyone to see. Do this.
6. Votes in quotes, spoiler tags or otherwise hidden will also not be counted.
7. Votes that misspell or have other minor errors will be counted as normal as long as I understand what you are getting at.
8. Once a player has reached a simple majority of votes no further unvoting will change their fate. Tough.
9. When a player is lynched the game enters twilight until the Mod posts a death scene; all players may continue to post.
10. If you are killed (either via lynch or night kill) you may no longer post except for one brief “Bah!”-type post that contains that must contain a cute image of a Penguin.

Spoiler: Misc Rules
1. This is my color. I don't like to share, so don't use it.
2. I'm perfect, but there may be an appearance of a mistake on occasion. This is intentional. Please PM me privately to address. I will correct any of these intentional mistakes where possible, but there may be situations that I cannot. Sorry. Be at peace knowing those were intentional as well.
3. Bold all requests to the Mod so that I don't intentionally miss them.
4. Rule violations will be dealt with based upon severity - up to a Modkill - at the sole discretion of the Mod
5. Any situation not specifically covered in the above Rules is subject to Mod discretion and will be handled as the Mod sees fit to address. Live with it.

important setup informationNewbie 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.

All Newbie games use 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.


basic game and site functionality
  1. Using the "code" tag will let you show something in code to demonstrate, see below
  2. Voting is done by using the vote tags:
    Code: Select all
    [vote]PenguinPower[/vote]
    gets you VOTE: PenguinPower
  3. Unvoting is done by using the unvote tags:
    Code: Select all
    [unvote]PenguinPower[/unvote]
    gets you UNVOTE: PenguinPower, or you can simply vote someone else
  4. As a reminder, Discussion of Ongoing Mafia Games is Not Allowed. This includes discussion ongoing games here or this game elsewhere.
  5. It is generally recommended to choose an avatar. This is a courtesy to fellow players, so that they can more easily differentiate you from other players when reading the thread. You can do this by going to User Control Panel, then Profile, then "Edit Avatar", and you can upload a picture or gif that will go along with your user name when you post.
  6. If you have any questions about basic rules, or the newbie setup, feel free to ask them in thread or PM me directly.
  7. Good Luck!

Hi everyone! I am the Inexperience-Challenged (IC) player in this game. Basically it means that if at any time you have any questions (not related to your role) about game mechanics, mafia theory or about anything that is happening in the game, feel free to ask and I will answer them to the best of my ability. Some things I may have to give a partial answer for because of the game being ongoing. If that happens I will let you know and will make a note to come back to it after the game is over. If you have any questions related to your role then please send a PM to the mod as these should not be asked in game.

I guarantee that I will not lie about theory and practice regardless of my alignment, and my alignment is randomized along with everyone else's so I could be either town or mafia.

A few useful links:
Glossary
Commonly Used Abbreviations
Newbie Guide
A Beginner's Guide to Being Awesome At Mafia
Fonzie's Guide to Early Game Survival for Newbies

Usually, once the game has officially begun, we start the game with the Random Voting Stage (RVS), where we vote for randomish reasons. The purpose of this is to immediately get people talking about things and to help get the game moving. Not everyone votes in their first post as you'll see when playing or reading more games. I sometimes do and sometimes don't. RVS tends to go on for a page or so until someone finds something worth following up.

Some people prefer to start with a Random Question Stage (RQS) instead, where they ask everyone to reply to a set of questions which may or may not appear relevant to the game. The danger of this is that players may inadvertantly say something which gives a clue to their role. (And be wary because some questioners may actually be fishing for this!)

Vote, but don't quicklynch! If your vote puts someone at L-1 (only one more vote needed to lynch), then say so. The next person who wants to vote that person should declare intent to hammer and ask for a claim before making the final vote. We don't have a fixed-length Day phase here so the Day ends as soon as a majority, in this case five votes, is reached. The deadline is only there to stop the day going on too long.

I'll add more stuff as we go along but the best way to learn is from experience so jump in, keep active (try for at least one post a day), and have fun!

I'm at L-2.

@Huntress-- You had a choice of putting the third vote on either Selynee or me. Why'd you go with the more experienced player?

What'd you get that impression from, the fact that he says he's new? Or the fact that his account has existed for about 10 days...?
