Rules (shamelessly stolen from Hoopla)
> Fundamental
1) The site-wide rules apply, please read them and don't do anything stupid.
2) Do not talk about this game outside of the game thread.
3) Do not quote/screenshot any communication you have with me, the moderator of the game. You may paraphrase things I have sent you (such as a role title, abilities and results) but direct quoting and talk about role PM flavour is not allowed.
4) Be courteous to your fellow player. This is just a game - please don't bring any personal grudges in. Lets have fun, okay!


> Voting, Lynching & Death
5) For your vote to be counted, it must be bold, and in the form VOTE: Grady. Caps and colons are optional, but it does need to be bolded.
6) Unvotes aren't necessary, but will be appreciated.
7) A lynch will occur when a player achieves 50% +1 of the votes. When this has happened, any subsequent votes and unvotes will not be counted, and the game will enter twilight. Night will begin as soon as I have declared the lynch.
8) The town may opt to 'no lynch' in lieu of lynching a player on any day. Vote: No Lynch is the format for this. No lynching requires only 50% of the town's votes to go through, as opposed to a majority.
9) Once you're dead, you are dead. Do not post in the thread until the game is over, not even a 'bah' post, for real. Seriously.


> Activity & Deadlines
10) Prods will be issued after 48 hours in a row without posting or under request from players. Multiple prods will probably lead to your replacement.
11) Things come up in life. If you need time off for something, please let myself and the players know in-thread for V/LA purposes. I will be flexible, but if you can't be here for a signifigant amount of time I will replace you.
12) Day 1 deadline is set for 14 days, while every Day Phase thereafter is set for 10 days.
13) In the event of a deadline ending without a player gaining a majority of votes, there will be no lynch.
14) Nights will have a 72 hour deadline. If you fail to send in a nightaction, you will automatically default to 'no action' for that night, and you will do nothing.
15) In the event of replacements or any other disturbances, I will grant a deadline extension. Laziness isn't an excuse though.


> Miscellaneous
16) Please do not use small/invisible text, stenography or advanced forms of coding/cryptography. Breadcrumbing is an acceptable form of basic coding. Please contact me via PM if you're unsure about where the line is.
17) Green is my colour I will use for modly purposes. All other colours are fair game.
18) Any flavour text I write will have no indication of any player's alignment. Feel free to waste your time guessing if you want though.
19) Do not try to exploit any loopholes there may be in this rule-set. I reserve the right to add, remove or modify existing rules at any time. If this happens, I will let everyone know.
20) Play to win. Every post and action you do should be in some attempt to achieve your win condition for your faction.

This game is using a open set-up. Here is a list of all role PMs used in the game:

Vanilla Townie

You are a loyal citizen of KyleVille, eager to topple the reign of the mafia. Your only power is your vote and your wit, which during the day you will use to hopefully catch the mafia.

Additional Abilities:
N/A
Win Condition: You win when all threats to the town are eliminated, and there is at least one town-aligned player alive.

The game thread is <here>. Please confirm via PM by quoting your role title.

***

Town Tracker

After a fruitful career in private investigation, your skills have finally found a just cause. No longer will you be a dirty perv, stalking for petty, distrusting spouses - you can actually make a difference, and help save KyleVille.

Additional Abilities: Each night you may investigate one player, and find out who they targeted (if anyone) for that night. You will not find out what their specific action was.
Win Condition: You win when all threats to the town are eliminated, and there is at least one town-aligned player alive.

The game thread is <here>. Please confirm via PM by quoting your role title.

***

Town Jailkeeper

After a fruitful career in jailing, your skills have finally found a just cause. No longer will you go about simply jailing those that annoyed you one two many times - you can actually make a difference, and help save KyleVille.

Additional Abilities:
Each night you may select one target to jail. That player will be both roleblocked and protected from harm.
Win Condition: You win when all threats to the town are eliminated, and there is at least one town-aligned player alive.

The game thread is <here>. Please confirm via PM by quoting your role title.

***

Mafia Goon

Over the last few years, you and your partner(s) have been let down by the KyleVille’s grotesque idealism. With town numbers dwindling, and the stigma attached to murder slowly desensitizing, it is the perfect opportunity to take this town by storm, and reap the financial rewards you so thoroughly deserve by selling out the KyleVilleions.

Additional Abilities:
Each night, and during confirmations, you and your partner(s) may talk together at this <quicktopic>.
Each night, your team may attempt to kill any player in the game by one of you submitting a name to me via PM. In the event I receive more than one name, the last one I receive will count.
Win Condition: You win when your mafia faction makes up 50% of the town, and nothing can prevent you from winning.

The game thread is <here>. Please confirm via PM by quoting your role title.

Merkabah, Robocopter87, and Hershey Kiss have yet to pick up their role pm. I'm giving them until Thursday at 12:00 A.M. Pacific Time to confirm before I start searching for a replacement.

VOTE: Merkabah

Because your name is kinda cool.

Hey, I always like to throw this out in open games as an idea. Massclaim? Not saying " Do it NOIW!!!!1" but giving it out for free samples. I think it could be a possibilty, maybe later on. But I really would like to hear opinions on this, not only to know but to spark discussion.

Massclaim is definitely not worth it - we have two PRs that we don't want outed.

@Merkabah - what do you think the benefits are of an RVS wagon?

Massclaim is pretty stupid in an open setup. Closed you can kinda see the setup of the game better, but in an open game like this it's not a good idea til later on.

@Karma: (alts make me sad): I don't see any disadvantages to it. Seeing other peoples reactions to a wagon is probably the best resource I get from it.

@ Karma: Read my post. Look at Robo's avatar. Make the connection.

Why does my vote switching in Random Voting Stage give you scummy vibes?

UNVOTE: Robocopter
VOTE: Karma

Your attempt to make something normal seem scummy is scummy.

I understand why you did it, but that doesn't make it less scummy. Flip-flopping in the RVS like you've been repeatedly doing is a minor tell, at least from my experience.

Actually a nice story behind that. My first game I was in, Kyle(our mod) replaced and thought I was scum and looking back on that game i totally agree I was scummy. He post a picture(my avatar) telling people to vote me. I was actually town, and saved that picture. But hadn't started using till a game or two ago. So that is the story of Uncle Sam saying to vote Robo.

1) you just told me :P :twisted:
2) nobody that "joined" two weeks ago would talk about the benefits of an RVS wagon.

Hmm, wonder where this will end up going.
