Need-to-Know
  • Day One = 10 days.
  • Subsequent Days = 7 days.
  • 36 hour prod timers.


Game Overview - Some rules were adopted from Plotinus, mhsmith0, MathDino, and yessiree. Thanks!

  • This game is conditioned as a full reveal. Upon a player's removal, a player's role and alignment are released to the public.

  • The game will end when a game-ending faction has achieved its win condition. A game-ending faction is any faction whose wincon cannot win with any other wincon i.e. town, mafia, serial killer, jester, etc.

  • Flavor is for fun and is not indicative of players, alignments, roles, abilities, game mechanics, or anything else related to the game.

  • Scum may talk during all phases of the game in their shared private topic.

  • I will not answer game clarification questions in misleading ways. (i.e. I will not tell you that an ability is passive when it is actually active.)

  • I will not intentionally lie to you if you have a question concerning your role or the mechanics of the game. I may answer vaguely, i.e. “No comment” or “I cannot answer that at this time,” for instance.

  • In general: if a question would break the game or implicate another player's role, there is little chance that I will answer it.

Conduct:

  • Try to not take things personally. You should expect debates to potentially become heated.

  • Bear the following in mind: Some will lie, and others will be deceived. It is all in the spirit of the game. That said, personal attacks or the implication of personal attacks are strictly off-limits and may result in a Locked thread and/or a Mod Kill depending on the severity of the insult.

  • I have the final say. Respect my judgement. I reserve the right to adjust and or change the rules as I see fit. I will always tell players about a change in the rules as these changes happen in order to ensure the prevention of game breaking incidents from occurring.

  • Pretending to break a rule is equal to actually breaking a rule and may get a player Mod-Killed depending on the nature of the infraction.

  • This is my color. Don't use it. (#80BFFF)

Post Content:

  • Respect and obey the MafiaScum Code of Conduct. All site wide rules apply. Play to win, please with respect, and try not to ruin the game for other players.

  • Do not talk about this game anywhere else unless I have specified it is permitted such as in a private topic. This includes PM-ing other players.

  • No invisible, cryptographic, or deliberate obfuscation of text.

  • No talking after death.

  • No editing or deleting your posts.

  • No discussion of ongoing games.

  • Paraphrasing is acceptable.

Activity:

  • Players who have failed to confirm their role PM within 48 hours after role PMs have been distributed will be auto-replaced.

  • After 36 hours of inactivity, players will be prodded to ensure that they are still interested in playing the game and continue to participate. After the prod, players will have 24 hours to respond with game related material or be replaced.

  • Players can request other players be prodded within reason and at the mod's discretion. These will be unofficial prods and will not count towards the three prod limit, but the prodded player will be expected to post game-advancing content within roughly 24 hours of being unofficially prodded. Failure to post game-advancing content within that 24 hour time-frame will in an official prod being handed out to said player.

  • If you have not posted game advancing content in 6 days, regardless of V/LA status, you will be replaced.

  • To avoid being replaced for inactivity, be sure to include game advancing content to your post i.e. “Got prodded, X is still scum. I'll catch up later”. Naked prod dodges ("I'll get to this later,") do not reset the prod timer.

  • If you declare V/LA, you will be nudged every 72 hours (3 days). Two nudges equals one prod in V/LA. Nudged players will have roughly 24 hours to post game advancing content before they will be nudged once more. If they fail to post game advancing content within roughly 24 hours of the second nudge, they will be replaced.

  • As a rule of thumb, if you are not on V/LA, you should try to post game related content at least once per every 24 hours.

  • Players are allowed to be prodded three separate times before they will be replaced.

  • Don't be afraid to use the V/LA, but don't abuse it either.

Replace Outs:

  • Do Not Discuss Substitutions, Concessions, Reports, or Infractions During Play

  • These topics are forbidden to discuss during play, as it may cause people to infer alignment in a manner that has nothing to do with actual game play.

  • Discussing substitutions or discussing moderation, particularly after a moderator has instructed players not to, will be an infraction.

  • Substitutions: Noting that a player X has subbed for player Y is fine. Noting when that occurred is fine.

  • Discussing why someone has been subbed out, announcing you will sub out, telling someone to sub out, public speculation as to someone's alignment based on the substitution itself, all forbidden. Think what you will about this person's alignment, at your own risk.

  • In a nutshell, using the substitution as reasoning is disallowed. It's bad for the game.

  • To be clear, you can talk about the player who was subbed out. You can say that they were subbed out. You can say when they subbed out. You can say why the player that subbed out was scummy based on what they did or didn't do while they were a player.

  • All that's being (not) discussed here is speculation as to why they subbed out. That's all the rule forbids. If you can be careful and stick to the legal stuff, you'll be fine. It's a very limited rule. The word "sub" is not lava, you can touch it. You don't get penalized for saying that a player was subbed in or out.

Lynches:

  • Majority lynch mechanics are in play.

  • Votes must be written in bold as Vote: AnonymousGhost or use the vote tag - VOTE: AnonymousGhost.

  • Votes in quotes, spoiler tags or otherwise hidden will not be counted. Votes that misspell or have other minor errors will be counted as normal as long as I understand what you are getting at. Unvotes are helpful, but not necessary. Let me know if I make an error in vote counts and I will correct them.

Newbie Setup
2d3 (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 can communicate in their Private Topic at all times.

Spoiler: Full Setups
Column A & Row 1: Mafia Roleblocker, Mafia Goon, Town Cop, Town Neapolitan, Vanilla Townie x 5
Column A & Row 2: Mafia Roleblocker, Mafia Goon, Town Jailkeeper, Town Doctor, Vanilla Townie x 5

Role PMs have been redistributed.

When 8 out of 9 players have confirmed via their role PMs, the game will begin or when the timer runs out.

Failure to confirm via role PM will result in a replacement.

ic intro, adapted from irrelephanthello everyone!

i'm skitter and i'm the ic (inexperience challenged) for this game (it's my first time doing this!)

i'm a player in this game and will be playing to my wincon, but i have the additional responsibility of leading by example and answering any questions you have about the game, the site, mechanics, rules etc. i am required to answer these questions honestly, and will make it clear when i'm talking as a player or as the ic

Here are some helpful links (a lot of them from our helpful wiki):
-> Forum Rules and Guidelines
-> The Glossary
-> Commonly Used Abbreviations
-> The Newbie Guide
-> Articles on How to Play Well

(be sure to check the dates these were written/updated, as good advice changes over time)

And here are some helpful tips:
---> Try to check in at least once a day. Besides the activity requirements listed in the op, it's just necessary for a fun and healthy game that everyone plays. If you post very rarely, or only post a little bit at a time, you may get scumread for lurking. Even if you are not scumread for it, what's the fun in playing a game where multiple people are hardly participating?

---> "Site Meta" is the description of how people on Mafiascum like to play mafia. Things can be different on other online mafia sites, or if you play IRL, so it's good to know what's expected of you on this site. These aren't "rules", per se, but if you don't follow these guidelines it is likely things will go poorly for you on MS. Some examples are...

---> Give "intent to hammer" when you want to place the final vote on a player. This gives time for that player to give a final plea and to claim their power role, if they have one (or if they are lying scum). If, after that player has posted, you are still sure you want to hammer them, go ahead and place the final vote. It is also common courtesy to declare "L-1" ("1 Vote away from lynch") when you place the penultimate vote on a player.

---> Don't claim your role until you are in danger of getting lynched - usually, you want to keep it a secret right up until someone gives intent to hammer. Sometimes, everyone will agree to claim in a "massclaim". Other than these situations, do not make your role obvious, even if you are a vanilla townie, as claiming makes it easier for scum to kill power roles at night.

---> Do not fake claim a power role as town! While it may help you avoid getting lynched, you might cause a real PR to out themselves by counter claiming - then the mafia will know who the PR is, and you will probably get lynched for lying to town. Feel free to fake a claim as scum, though, if you think it would help.

---> Don't vote for yourself. There are very rare occasions where this is helpful in non-newbie games, but usually only for scum, so if you do it here you will certainly get scumread for it.

---> Mafia is hard! As town, it can be hard to figure things out, and stressful when people think you're scum. That's okay! Just share your thoughts on who you think is scum as they come to you, and don't be afraid to change your mind. As scum, it can be hard to lie convincingly, and stressful when people think you're scum. Don't let that scare you! Try to think of what you would post if you were town, and don't be afraid to "change your mind".

---> This is a game. Have fun! :]

Hey guys. I go by the username Mewtaph, but feel free to call me "Mew" for short and I'm one of your SEs (Semi-Experienced) for this game!

I will talk a bit about RVS and RQS.

The essence of this game is that an uninformed majority (Town) is playing against an informed minority (Mafia). This means that when the game starts the Town players have almost no information at all. Obviously this makes it hard for us to know what to do!
Two strategies used to break out of this low-information state are RVS (random voting stage) and RQS (random questions stage).
In RVS, everyone casts a vote for arbitrary reasons. However, after the first few votes, the remaining votes will start to be less arbitrary, because they are more informed (the later players know where the earlier votes went). This opens up the game to discussion about why certain votes have gone where they have gone, and moves the game forward.
In RQS, players ask and answer some arbitrary questions. This gets people to discuss the game. In general on this site, RVS is more common than RQS.

Adapted from Dierfire - thanks!

For my RVS vote, I will vote for Doughboy.

VOTE: Doughboy

hoppy hoppy frog and some salamanders in the pond...
Nousername757: If they are randomly picking with a reason thats is an excuse, they are probably mafia while mew is town.

If they do actually vote becaus they hate Mew (the pokémon), then the post is useless.

Nousername757 is more likely to be mafia than mew.

IDK honestly, but I would probably prefer mafia. The only reason is probably the private chats so I can have more thing to do. Also, I have basically 0 mafia experience here, but I'll try my best. Also this might be easier than playing mafia in real life, just because if you are a mafia meember, you won't start laughing for some weird reasons on the next day.

[vote] player name [ /vote]

is the tag for voting (without the space between the '[' and the '/'); there's a special button for it in the full-screen reply box
also i would suggest getting an avatar to make it easy for other players to identify you!
