Hello, one and all! WELCOME to

Survivor: The Real Theme Was Inside Us All Along.

You're probably wondering, does this game have a logo? The answer is "of course".

Image


Wow, look at that beauty.

If you don't already know me, I'm PrivateI, or Monty, and my beautiful cohosts are Cheery Dog and D3f3nd3r. They're very lovely, definitely go check out their Soundclouds or whatever they're plugging. The listmod for this game is Xofelf, she is absolutely delightful, but if things go wrong, don't blame her--just tell her! She is here to be a conduit for any complaints you might have with our moderation of the game, or concerns with the game in general that you might not feel comfortable sharing with us. While I encourage you to approach the modteam with any concerns you might have, Xofelf is a very sweet person to talk to, so I totes understand you going to her.

Moderator Contact Information

Since this game is a bit unconventional, I'm going to throw our Discord information right here in the opening post. Feel free to contact us via pm on the site like you normally would, but you can also reach any of us at the Discord addresses below.

Background Information

There are a few things you should know about this game going in.

{01} This is a NONANONYMOUS game. Once the game begins, the full cast will be listed here, and in general, open communication about whether you intend to sign up is allowed. That begins now, so if you want to get your best friend to join you in signing up for this game, feel free! With that in mind, however, "pregaming", or forming alliances before the game begins, is explicitly not allowed.

{02} This is a game with TRIBES. Once the game begins, players will be divided into tribes. You will ONLY be allowed to communicate about the game with people from your tribe.

{03} When you are allowed to communicate with people from your tribe, you may talk to them using ANY PLATFORM you both deem acceptable--this forum, Facebook, Discord, texts, cute postcards from around the world with fun stamps, memes transported in the mouths of baby goats, the options really are limitless! With that said, the only requirement to play in this game is a Mafiascum account.

{04} This game is NOT designed to be OVERWHELMING. While tribe counts and numbers can vary significantly, you will never be asked to keep track of conversations with more than ten people at one time, either during the tribe phase of the game or during the merge phase of the game. In addition, CHALLENGES have been designed to induce very little stress. In general, there will be no live or semi-live challenges, even during the tribal phase. Depending on the size of the game, it is possible that live or semi-live challenges could be incorporated toward the end of the game.

{05} This game has many VARIABLES and is not fully designed yet (kind of). While challenges are broadly in place, and the mod team has a general understanding of which twists will be included, the game has one huge factor which has not been set yet--the number of players! That is because we will accept, broadly, EVERY PLAYER who signs up.

{06} While our intent is to accept everyone who signs up, circumstances such as players not wanting to play together or other factors, including moderator discretion, may prevent everyone who applies from being able to play.


Rules

{01} This is a game. The main objective is to have fun; so no excessive flaming, spamming, or otherwise being a jerk.

{02} This is a game. The secondary objective is to win.

{03} We are not infallible, so if we make a moderating mistake, please point it out and we will correct it if needed.

{04} We have worked extensively to produce a game that is enjoyed by all involved. As such, we promise to offer each player respect but invite you to show us the same in return.

{05} Exercise common sense. If you are unsure as to whether an action conflicts with the rules, ask. Yes, this is a competition, but do not attempt to undermine challenges or game mechanics for your own gain. This violates the spirit of the game and will make me sad, and while my name is blue, I don't like to feel blue.

{06} Private communication with players outside of your tribe or eliminated players is strictly prohibited. Any player found in violation of this rule will be penalized however the mods see fit, up to and including their elimination from the game.

{07} The posting of messages between players (whether via text (paraphrasing is fine) or via image) in a public forum is explicitly disallowed. You are also prohibited from taking a screenshot of private messages and showing them to other players. Forwarding is not allowed. Basically, just don't share images of messages, and don't straight copy/paste whole message logs. Once again, if you have any questions about whether something conflicts with the rules, just hit one of the moderators up.

{08} You ARE allowed to create group chats among the players you're allowed to talk to. Go nuts. Have fun.

{09} The moderators may discipline any player that breaks the rules however we see fit, depending on the specific situation. We also reserve the right to implement new rules if needed.

{10} Failure to submit entirely in a challenge (when a player is supposed to participate) will earn a player a strike. Failure to submit a vote during a Tribal Council a player is attending will earn a player a strike (and a public self-vote, as detailed below). Getting two strikes in a row may result in a player being modkilled. Getting three strikes during the game may result in a player being modkilled. A player getting modkilled during Tribal Council will nullify the results of that Tribal Council, at the moderators' discretion.

{11} While it is important to remember that this is an extended commitment that you are signing up for, if worse comes to worst and you simply have to quit the game, contact a moderator posthaste so we can discuss the options available. In the event that no satisfactory solution can be identified, you can quit the game and be removed. The moderators will make the decision on how to handle this unexpected event.

Immunity Challenges:

{01} Every round will possess an Immunity Challenge. Winners of the Immunity Challenge will be safe from elimination that round and cannot be voted out at the Tribal Council. The number of Immunity Challenge winners can vary.

{01a} Immunity necklaces MAY be transferred to someone else during Tribal Council. To do so, necklace holders need simply to notify the mods or post publicly in this thread. In either case, players will ALWAYS have a minimum of 24 hours after a necklace is passed to continue to deliberate on their Tribal Council vote. The mods will err on the side of granting more time rather than less where possible. Each immunity necklace can only be passed to someone on the same tribe, and it cannot be refused by the recipient. Immunity necklaces may each only be passed once per round, and if a necklace is passed when more than one tribe is at Tribal Council, only the tribe where a necklace was passed will have the Tribal Council deadline potentially extended.

{02} The outcomes of all Challenges are final. That said, however, be sure to keep Rule 03 of General Rules in mind.

{03} We appreciate the fact that prospective contestants will enter this game with a range of skills. With this in mind, understand that we as mods can't cater to all players' needs, strengths, and time constraints in challenges.

Tribal Council:

{01} Tribal Council is where players are eliminated. Before the merge, generally, only the losing tribe or tribes will visit TC, and will vote one player off. After the merge, all remaining players will go to TC, including immunity challenge winners.

{02} Tribal Councils will last 48 hours from the scheduled end of the challenge. If a player fails to submit a vote within the given time frame, they will receive a selfvote. This vote will be publicly revealed, and the player who failed to submit will receive a strike. In the event that a player knows he or she will be unable to vote by deadline, that player may notify the moderators and cast a conditional vote to avoid penalization. All votes will be submitted in a Private Topic hosted here on Mafiascum.

{03} The results of Tribal Councils may be posted before deadline if and only if all persons involved have submitted a vote. With that in mind, every Tribal Council will last, at a minimum, 24 hours.

{04} The modification of votes after they have been submitted is allowed. Players are able to change their votes as many times as they want until the Tribal Council is posted. However, keep in mind that the Tribal Council may be posted early if all players have voted. Players have the option of submitting conditional votes DURING Tribal Council. These votes must be clearly designated, but are votes that would only take effect once deadline is reached. For example, if, at the beginning of a Tribal Council, I cast a conditional vote for Xofelf, my vote would only be counted as a vote once Tribal Council ends, freeing me up to change my vote if necessary.

{05} The outcomes of Tribal Councils are final.

{06} Questions concerning ties in the Tribal Council may be found below:

Breaking Ties:

I. In the event of an initial tie, a revote shall take place. Contestants may only vote for one of the tied players, and all tied individuals may not vote. Reward items may not be used in this revote, but any reward items that have already been played will remain in play.

II. If a majority (or unique plurality) is not met in the revote, all tied players and immune players become instantly immune and the remaining players will draw rocks for elimination. In a Final 4 Tribal Council, rocks will not be drawn, and the tied players will participate in a tiebreaker challenge.

Twists:

{01} Twists will be implemented without warning or provocation throughout the game. IMPORTANT: The time and setting of each twist has NOT already been fully determined, due to the variable nature of the game. Once the game IS fully designed, however, twists will not be designed so as to give an unfair advantage or disadvantage to any player or group of players.

Application:

ALL RIGHT! You made it to the bottom of this massive post, you're ready to apply!

You can find the application here, just make sure that you are familiar with the rules, since you'll be asked to affirm that you read them when you get to the bottom of the application. (/inning in this thread will NOT get you into the game, you MUST fill out the application!)

Dates:

Sign-ups will run starting RIGHT NOW until next Wednesday, at 8pm EST. After this, the moderators will take three days to finish creating the game, before tribes are announced, the cast is released, and the game begins at 8pm EST. Forty-eight hours will be given for the first immunity challenge, to give you time to get to know your tribe and get into the swing of things.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

This has been categorized as a Standard Game. While the amount of players will affect game design, it will never be more complex than a standard game.

To answer some questions I've gotten a few different times, yes, this game will accept as many players as apply, no matter how large that game gets. Additionally, the whole game (Tribal Councils and challenges, mainly) will take place right here in this thread.

Sounds interesting

Just to clarify, in terms of not talking and stuff, I take it this is purely game related conversations
Like for example having conversations with my other Mods that I'm planning games with is fine? Or talking about general life stuff is okay?

Talking to any other person, for any purpose, using any communication method, is quite strictly prohibited.

Yeah, just don't like make alliances with folks.

I have an announcement.

First of all, unless you've been explicitly told otherwise, you are PLAYING if you applied. Wow!

Secondly, this is going to be one of the biggest games of an LSG in recent memory, and I think you will LOVE this cast.

How big is this cast, you may wonder? This game will start...with THIRTY-TWO players.

The full cast will be announced on Saturday, and you'll be divided into your opening tribes! Until then, no pregaming, but be kind.

The game will start in (expired on 2019-11-16 19:00:00).

In preparation for the game, you've each been given a Confessional/Voting Thread in the Private Topics forum. I'd encourage you to bookmark both this thread and your confessional to ensure you have ready access to them throughout the game. If you have any issues accessing your private thread, please let me know.
