rules, adapted from nexus's

--most important rule: be nice and don't be mean--

general:
- Please adhere to the site rules.
- Do not discuss this game of mafia outside of this thread and the mafia PT.
- Day 1 will last 10 days; all further days last 7 days. Any day will also end when a majority lynch is achieved.
- Night Phases will last 48 hours maximum. On any given night, if all players PM me that they are okay to speed up the night, it will end sooner.
- During night phases, no talking may be done in this thread.
- Do not quote PM's from the mod at all (real or fabricated). Paraphrasing is acceptable.
- If you have any questions about your role, or the game, feel free to PM the mod.
- "Bah" posts are not allowed.
- If you break any of these rules, you will probably be modkilled.

voting / player actions:
- Vote either with vote tags (VOTE: schadd) or with bold (vote: schadd). Note that I didn't include the underscore in my username; you may choose to use a string that will uniquely identify a player to me instead of the exact thing.
- Don't try to confuse me with your votes.
- You may vote No Lynch to Not Lynch.
- A lynch will occur once a majority decision is reached. If no majority is reached by deadline, then no lynch shall occur.
- Following a lynch, it is twilight. You may continue to post until I lock the thread and declare it night.
- If nobody dies for 3 consecutive day and night phases, the town will win.
- If you have a Night Action, you may submit it from Night 1 and each subsequent Night (or whichever nights are specified by the role).

activity:
- You are expected to post at least once every 36 hours. If you haven't posted for 36 hours, I shall prod you. If you do not respond to the prod within 24 hours (either in thread if it's Day, or via PM during the Night) then I will replace you.
- As well, if you require more than three prods, I will force-replace you.

mechanics:
- Aquamarine, 21B35F is my color. Please don't use it.
- No impossible/hard to read text, or cryptography. For example, I would prefer that no font size smaller than the one you're reading now be used.
- The mod may make mistakes - please point out any mistakes gently. Mistakes will be corrected where possible, but sometimes mistakes are made that cannot be reversed. These will stand as final to be commiserated over after the game.
- If you need to get the mod's attention, either PM me, or bold the text you wish to draw to my attention.
- I reserve the right to alter/remove/add any rules as I see fit. You will, of course, be notified if that happens, however.

Setup Information
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 have access to their Private Topic at all times.

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

Howdy all. I had this wild IC opening post written up on my PC with links and stuff but I am experiencing technical difficulties, so please accept this cheesy one I wrote on mg phone!





Nice to see you again volxen, nonny & NotAJumbleOfNumbers :)

and a huge warm welcome to InfernoDragon18, Tinexkksi, YyottaCat, Vorkuta and PvtUrist!

I'm the worst, and I'll be your IC (Inexperience Challenged) player for this game. In essence this means I've been playing mafia on this site for a while, and have volunteered to take on a role of teaching and trying to help newer players adjust to our site culture and enjoy their time here.

My role here is more or less to follow the guidelines set out in this article here. This doesn't mean I'm guaranteed to be town; it also doesn't mean that I am allowed to 'go easy' on anyone due to differences in experience. It's my responsibility to treat this game like any game and try to be an example of what to expect from your time on MafiaScum. :]

This also doesn't mean that I'm a great player! I like to flatter myself into thinking I'm a decent player, but I'm very far from being in the "upper echelon" of mafia players out there. That said, I am experienced and a little addicted very enthusiastic about mafia. I will try my best and take this as seriously as any game; and of course if you have any theory or terminology questions, I'm here to help.



Alignments / Roles
There is so so much writing on ways you can approach different alignments and roles. And no writing is objectively correct. Everyone's style is different, and that's what has kept mafia fun for so many decades. :lol:

For anyone who would just like some general pointers around how some mafia players conduct themselves + the flow of the game, there are some terrific articles on the MafiaScum wiki. A lot of them are dated, but I'd say start off with something like this.

Vi's Newbie Guide to Being Awesome At Mafia
This is largelypointers about ways to play as either alignment, and is awesome reading. There's no "as town, do this; as scum, do this". Just recommendations on how to self assess the way you want to approach the game.



Imo the best way to play mafia is to remember it's a game, make sure you're having fun, and exercise empathy wherever possible. :) Be yourself and try not to panic about speaking your mind. People will challenge you (I know I will :twisted:) but it's always super helpful to try and see if you can fit in their shoes too: are they trying to make you look like scum? Are they trying to work out your alignment (townies sorting players)? Are they just lost and trying to find a way to enter the conversation?

Mafia's a hard game, but I believe approaching it sincerely to have a good time is super super rewarding! Good luck all!

on that note It seems everyone so far is comfortable with random voting stage (rvs) where we basically vote players with very thin reasoning in order to try and spark some conversation!

VOTE: volxen
May as well kick off the tunnel right? ;)

Hey, to make sure your votes count use the [.b] or [.v]tags:

Code: Select all

= vote: volxen

Code: Select all

= VOTE: volxen


both of these are valid formats. :)
