GAME RULES

GENERAL
  1. Adhere to all site rules.
  2. Always play to win.
  3. Remember that this is a game - heated discussion is allowed, but personal attacks are not. Comment on play, not player.
  4. Pretending to break the rules will be treated similarly as actually breaking the rules.
  5. Do not quote any private communication regarding this game—this includes your role PM, other mod communication, posts from private threads, etc. Paraphrasing is acceptable. If you're unsure, ask me first.
  6. If you need to get my attention, please include "@mod" in your post or PM me.
  7. This (#00BFFF) is my color. You can use it, if you want, but please don't try to impersonate me.
  8. Do not use encryption, hidden text or excessively small text in your posts.
  9. Do not use any form of provable randomness. This includes dice tags, screenshots of random.org, etc. Saying you flipped a coin is okay, providing some sort of proof that you did isn’t.
  10. Day 1 will last for 10 days, with all further days lasting for 7 days. Any day will end when a majority is reached.
  11. Do not post in the game thread or any private topics following your death, with the exception of the dead thread.
  12. If you have the ability to edit your posts, do not do so.
  13. My decisions are final. If I feel you are violating any of the rules, I will take the appropriate action.
  14. Have fun!

VOTING
  1. All votes and unvotes must be in bold or in VOTE: tags, with vote tags being preferable.
  2. Votes in spoilers will not be counted.
  3. Abbreviations and nicknames are acceptable, as long as I can understand them.
  4. Unvotes are not necessary before revoting.
  5. Lynches will occur when a majority (>50%) is reached. If no majority is reached before deadline, the day will end in a no-lynch
  6. Voting to end the day in a no-lynch requires only 50% of players rather than >50%.
  7. Once a hammer has occurred, the game is in "twilight". Discussion may continue until I lock the thread but no further votes or unvotes will be counted.

ACTIVITY
  1. You are expected to make at least one game-relevant post every 36 hours. Players who go 36 hours without posting will be prodded.
  2. If you are prodded, you have 24 hours to post in-thread. If you do not respond within 24 hours, you will be replaced. Additionally, if I have to prod you 3 or more times, I reserve the right to replace you at my own discretion.
  3. If you are going to be V/LA (Vacation / Limited Access), please bold it in thread or PM me.

USEFUL LINKS:


MOST IMPORTANTLY:

Remember: this is a game. Enjoy it! If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

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.

hello all, nice to meet you! I'm the worst, and i'll be the inexperience challenged ("IC") player for this game.
(btw nice to see you again ceejayvinoya & GuiltyLion <3)

In essence, my role as an IC 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.
It does not guarantee either:-
1) my alignment, nor
2) that I am good at mafia... :lol:, nor
3) that I'm allowed to 'go easy' on anyone!

My role here is more or less to follow the guidelines set out in this article here. I will try my best and take this as seriously as any game, and explain anything along the way that I think will help; 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 largely pointers 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!

mafiascum site culture tends to start days with "random voting stage" (rvs); basically throw down a vote with either no reasoning, or some very thinly veiled reasoning.

this usually goes on until someone sees something that makes them go "hmmm". basically, rvs is quite fun but not hugely useful. it's an evil we deem necessary, since the game's gotta kick off somehow.
the real fun starts after this stage, when questions/votes/accusations start flying. so if anyone sees something which looks like a good conversation point, or something they want to ask someone more about, go crazy!

Frankly I'm bored. And I do like the aerial photos. No, I dont draw any inferences from your vote although I too would like moony and compfan to add avis.
