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 Do not quote any private communication regarding this game—this includes your role PM, other mod communication, posts from private threads, etc.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 (#E62E00) 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. Lynches will occur when a majority (>50%) is reached. If no majority is reached before deadline, the day will end in a no-lynch.
  5. Voting to end the day in a no-lynch requires only 50% of players rather than >50%.
  6. 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.

ic intro, adapted from lots of others!hello everyone!

i'm skitter and i'm the ic (inexperience challenged) for this game

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! :]

uh def in the thread; it's against site rules to talk to someone else about the game outside of the game thread (and/or in other allowed game-adjacent-threads that the mod knows about - like in this game if you're scum you can obviously talk to your partner in the scum pt)

^^^^

nope, once i'm dead, i can't post anymore (this applies to all players)
i'm a player in the game so all the normal rules about being a player apply to me
but while i'm here, if you have any questions about theory or etiquette or site meta etc, i'll answer them as best as i can

if i'm dead early on tho i'll keep following this game so i can talk about it and how people played once it ends
