Rules
Rules shamelessly stolen from various moderators.


General Rules
  1. All site rules apply here.
  2. You may not quote private communication. This includes Moderator-supplied information (real or otherwise) or any kind and information from Private Topics. You may paraphrase if needed.
  3. There is to be NO personal communication outside of the moderator approved methods. If someone contacts you outside the game, report it to me IMMEDIATELY.
  4. This game will start with a Day phase.
  5. No ciphers, encryption, extremely small text, or other similar tactics.
  6. If you have the ability to edit, refrain from doing so.
  7. It's your responsibility to read and understand all of the rules.

Activity
  1. Aim for one post every 36 hours at a minimum.
  2. After 36 hours of no activity, I will prod the inactive player.
  3. A prodded player has 36 hours to respond to my prod with a substantive post in game, after which time they will be required to be replaced.
  4. A player who has been prodded 3 times will be subject to replacement with no further notice.
  5. If you plan on being inactive for more than 36 hours, PM the Mod to discuss your plan on being V/LA.
  6. If you plan to have regularly scheduled V/LA period (e.g. the weekend) please PM the mod to notify

Deadlines
  1. Day 1 will last 10 days. Each subsequent Day will last 7 days.
  2. Nights will last 48 hours.
  3. Extensions may be given out in extreme circumstances and are up to the discretion of the Mod.
  4. If you have a role with a Night action, your action is due to the Mod by the posted deadline. If no action is received by the posted deadline, you may forfeit your action(s). Players with a Night action may submit a "No Action" PM to indicate to the Mod you do not wish to perform your action.

Player Rules/Voting
  1. A simple majority of all living players must agree on one person (via voting) for a Lynch to occur (simple majority = ½ # of living players +1, rounded down). If no one has a simple majority of votes at the deadline a No Lynch will occur.
  2. Votes should use VOTE: Tags or be bolded or they may not be counted.
  3. Unvotes are helpful, but not required.
  4. You may VOTE: No Lynch - a simple majority (as described above) of No Lynch votes will result in a No Lynch and a move to the Night phase.
  5. Votes/Unvotes should be placed on a line all by themselves to make them easier for everyone to see, or they may not be counted.
  6. Votes in quotes, spoiler tags or otherwise hidden will not be counted.
  7. Votes that look like a vote will be counted as such. Attempts to play games or tricks with this may result in an outcome you do not desire.
  8. Once a player has reached a simple majority of votes no further unvoting will change their fate.
  9. When a player is lynched the game enters twilight until the Mod posts a death scene; all players may continue to post.
  10. If you are killed (either via lynch or night kill) you may no longer post except for one brief, contentless “Bah!”-type post that must contain a cute image of a Penguin or Ann Takamaki.

Misc Rules
  1. This is my color. I don't like to share, so don't use it.
  2. I'm perfect, but there may be an appearance of a mistake on occasion. This is intentional. Please PM me privately to address. I will correct any of these intentional mistakes where possible, but there may be situations that I cannot. Sorry. Be at peace knowing those were intentional as well.
  3. Bold all requests to the Mod so that I don't intentionally miss them.
  4. Rule violations will be dealt with based upon severity - up to a Modkill - at the sole discretion of the Mod.
  5. Any situation not specifically covered in the above Rules is subject to Mod discretion and will be handled as the Mod sees fit to address. Live with it.

Setup Info

Newbie SetupNewbie Setup
NewD3 (as designed by RadiantCowbells):

ABC
MafiaMafia RoleblockerMafia RolecopMafia Goon
Row 1Town Cop and Town DoctorTown Tracker and Town Friendly NeighborTown Cop and Vanilla Townie
Row 2Town Jailkeeper and Town TrackerTown Jailkeeper and Town Friendly NeighborTown Jailkeeper and Vanilla Townie
Row 3Town Mason and Town MasonTown Tracker and Town DoctorTown Mason and Town Mason

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 goon 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 are able to communicate in their Private Topic at all times, and Mafia Power Roles are able to use their role ability and the factional kill in the same night.

Introduction and TipsHere 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)


Key Concepts and Tips

Activity

Try to check in at least once a day. Besides the activity requirements listed in the moderator's original post, 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

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...

Random Voting Stage (RVS)
Games on MafiaScum almost always begin with what we call the Random Voting Stage (RVS). At this point in the game, we are in a low information game state (except the mafia, which know everyone’s alignment). As a way to provoke reaction, start a discussion, and try to determine alignment, people will usually vote for non-serious reasons. As the discussion progresses, we will eventually get the game moving and progress out of RVS.

Voting, L-x, and Hammers
L-x is a way to convey how far away a player is away from a lynch. For example, you should always announce that you are putting someone at L-1 (1 vote away from a lynch) so that someone doesn’t come along and accidentally vote for that players lynch. This also prevents Mafia-aligned players from coming along and placing the final vote to lynch (“hammer”) and claiming ignorance about doing so. You may also see L-2 and L-3 (2 votes away from a lynch and 3 votes away from a lynch, respectively).

Before you hammer a player, state your intent to hammer (usually done in bold) and ask the player to claim their role. This is done to prevent power roles from being lynched, and can sometimes get Mafia-aligned players to be caught (via counter claiming). It's best to then allow other players to react and discuss the claim before hammering.


Claiming Your Role
It is almost always best to not claim your role unless you are at L-1 and have been asked to claim as part of an “intent to hammer.” This is because, as a town power role (“PR”), if you out prematurely, you are likely to be night-killed (“NK’d”). As a Vanilla Townie (“VT”), claiming early helps the mafia team narrow down the setup and possible PR candidates. An exception to this would be if a mafia player claimed your role, claiming early to counter the false claim (“CC”) would out the mafia player, and would be a benefit to the town.

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.

LyLo
LyLo is the shortened representation of “lynch or lose.” LyLo in the Newbie Queue is when there are 3 remaining players, 2 of which are town and 1 is mafia; or when there are 5 remaining players, 3 of which are town and 2 are mafia. It is important in these situations that the town aligned players do not carelessly vote like is done during RVS or early days, as the mafia player(s) can organize and instantly provide the necessary votes to lynch (“quickhammer”) and win the game.

Conclusion
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!
