ruleset1. Site rules.
Please follow site-wide rules at all times and DO NOT reference ongoing games at any time. Ongoing games are any games other than this one that have not been declared over by the game's moderator.

2. Integrity.
Receiving outside help to play this game (e.g., asking someone what their read on a player is, including yourself) or attempting to communicate with someone in this game privately constitute cheating and are strictly prohibited. Playing against your win condition is forbidden.

3. Private/public game content. Do not create public content related to this game in any online location other than the game thread. You may create private online content related to this game, e.g., Google documents, but do not make this content public. Images and gifs are not included in this.

4. Attitude and behavior.
Please try to help keep the game atmosphere friendly and enjoyable for everyone. Abusive or toxic behavior is not welcome and will not be tolerated. Please be civil and respectful to everyone, including yourself.

5. Provable randomness and cryptography.
Using tools such as random.org, dice tags, cryptography or text < size 75 in your posts is against the spirit of the game. Please do not do this.

6. Paraphrase only.
Don't quote or fake quote from any form of ongoing game-related communication (including private topics and moderator PMs) in the game thread. Explicitly paraphrase.

7. Impersonation.
My mod color is DeepSkyBlue. Don't use that color or pretend to be me.

8. Activity.
You will receive a prod after 48 hours of inactivity and will be replaced 24 hours following that if the prod is not picked up. I will seek a replacement for your slot upon your third prod. Prodging (content-less posts) will not reset your prod timer.

9. V/LA and replacement.
If you need to go V/LA or need your slot to be replaced, please inform me privately. Do not discuss player replacement during the game.

10. Game phases.
Day phases last 14 days, Night phases last 2 days. The thread will be locked during the Night phase.

11. Voting.
Valid lynch votes must follow either of the following formats: VOTE: nancy or Vote: nancy, using vote or bold tags, respectively. Please avoid using nicknames when voting; if I don't understand a vote, it will not be valid.

12. Lynching.
Lynches are achieved via simple majority vote (50% of players alive + 1, rounded down). If there is no majority at deadline, No Lynch occurs. No Lynch is a valid lynch vote. Once majority is reached, the Day phase ends and the thread will be locked; players may continue to post as long as the game thread is not locked.

13. Nights actions.
Night actions must be sent in to me via PM or via the Mafia PT before deadline or No Action will be taken.

14. Moderator influence.
The moderator is an impartial facilitator; anything I say or do will not be alignment indicative and I will not favor any player of either alignment over another.

15. Moderator discretion.
Anything included and not included in this ruleset will be taken care of at my discretion. Please be very careful and don't try to get away with anything. If you have questions or concerns about the game, please contact me via PM.

newbie setup info2d3 (as designed by Cabd):

ABC
MafiaMafia RoleblockerMafia RolecopMafia Goon
Row 1Town Cop and Town NeapolitanTown Cop and Town TrackerTown Cop and Vanilla Townie
Row 2Town Jailkeeper and Town DoctorTown Jailkeeper and Town TrackerTown Jailkeeper and Vanilla Townie
Row 3Town Cop and Town DoctorTown Neapolitan and Town DoctorTown Tracker and Town Doctor

Each Newbie Game will be given a setup that incorporates one mafia role from the top of a column, and then two town roles from a row below the selected mafia role. The remaining six roles will be filled in by one mafia goons and five 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. Mafia Roleblocker action takes precedence over a Town Jailkeeper action should that apply.

Mafia have access to their Private Topic at all times.

All role PMs have been sent. This game is now in the pre-game confirmation phase.

All players have 72 hours to confirm, according to this countdown timer: (expired on 2018-02-08 18:49:26).

The game will begin when I have received 8/9 confirmations or when the timer expires, whichever happens first.

Please take care to read the ruleset during this time.

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.

I highly recommend reading Fonzie's Guide to Early Game Survival for Newbies. Good for not-so-new players too!

We usually 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.

If you want to refer to other games that's fine as long as they are over. Never talk about other ongoing games.

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!

Strikes me as sheepy and scummy. But this is RVS, so it's probably NAI.
p-edit: and the above() is OMGUS. Seems scummy and defensive.
p-p-edit: no reason for your vote on RC, and this also strikes me as scummy and kind of pointless.

Okay, you now have a vote with a reason, but your reasoning is "the stuff that comes out of you butt."
You are either really aggressive town, town that is not taking this game seriously, or scum.
I'm willing to bet on scum.

Okay then

I claim tracker

If you are a doctor, you are on me no matter what.
If you are a jailkeeper, I want you to flip two coins night 1. If both are heads, you go elsewhere. Else, protect me night one and once I know of your existence I'll figure something out.

Any other PRs go elsewhere.

no one else is to claim. only I benefit from claiming here.

James, your trichotomy is strange. How is saying I'm going to omgus aggressive? Omgus is pretty common in RVS. How am I not taking the game seriously? Why does scum say they're going to omgus over town?

Why do you only benefit from claiming here? Also, I'm pretty sure I know your role now. If you want to know why, 'Ferno and I are buds. That's all you should need to know.

We have three questions rolled into one here, so I'm going to answer each seperately.
a) It's not the OMGUS post specifically, but OMGUS paired with post #11. Even saying that it seemed to be hostile seemed to come off to me as really hot and smoky and angry. But it doesn't strike me as town to say "My first post was going to be..."
b) That's not the reason you don't seem to be taking the game seriously. That would be post #13, which seems pointless and like a joke post, as does your OMGUS vote. (BTW, that was a reaction test on my part. If you hadn't said anything I probably wouldn't have thought you were scum because we were in RVS.) It also feels like more fluff.
c) See, that's what I find odd. Why would ANYONE say they're going to OMGUS? That seems odd no matter your alignment. What makes it scummy-feeling is the fact that it's been paired with two super defensive, super-lashy posts AFTER you hit l-3. IT feels to me like you're trying to fight off a wagon.
I'm not basing my vote on your OMGUS votes, but on the material that came with them.

Oh, and he's L-2, guys, so let's slow down this wagon a bit. No reason to be lynching less than 24 hours after the game starts.
