General Site Rules that we all pretty much know:
  • If you have something that you need to communicate with me bold your text or I cannot guarantee I will see it.
  • As the MOD I reserve the right to modkill or force-replace players as I see fit.
  • If you feel I have erred send me a PM and let me know.
  • That said, do not bring disagreements with me into the thread. That is what the PM is for. The same goes for disagreements with other players.
  • Do not use invisible or in some way encrypted fonts or typing.
  • Follow all the site rules. Play to your wincon but above all play to have fun. Do not ruin the game for others.

General game rules:
  • I will use the colour #FFAA00. This is my color and only my color. Don't use it.
  • A lynch is reached when a majority of all players (half rounded down plus one) are voting for the same target.
  • If a majority is not reached by the deadline, a No Lynch will occur.
  • You may vote No Lynch in the same way that you vote for a lynch. Once a majority has voted for a no lynch the day immediately ends.
  • Abuse of an infinite no-lynch/no-kill loop will not be tolerated. Do not even contemplate it.
  • Votes must be written in bold as Vote: Player or use the VOTE: Player tag. Votes that are not tagged will not be counted.
  • Votes in quotes, spoiler tags or otherwise hidden will also not be counted.
  • Votes that misspell or have other minor errors will be counted as normal as long as I understand what you are getting at.
  • Unvotes are helpful, but not necessary. Let me know if I make an error in vote counts and I will correct them.
  • I will try and do vote counts often but if you want one just let me know.
  • As the MOD I will keep communication down to the absolute minimum possible (aside from vote counts and the like). I do not want to influence the game itself – that is for the players to do.
  • This is a closed setup. The setup has been reviewed for normalcy and balance.
  • Flips will have full role revealed (I will essentially post the PM you received on your flip with the obvious required reductions)

Game Flow:
  • The Game will begin and the thread will be unlocked after 10 players confirm via PM.
  • Please announce if you are going on V/LA. I prefer this announced in thread unless there is a specific reason not to.
  • If you have not posted for 48 hours you will receive a prod. If you do not post within 24 hours of a prod you will be replaced.
  • Three prods will result in being replaced.
  • The first two day phases will last a maximum of 14 days. Day Three will last a maximum of 12 days, Day Four a maximum of 10 days, and all subsequent Days Phases no more than 8 days.
  • Each Night Phase will last 48 hours. Starting on Night Three, I will accept speed deadlines if ALL players (including those without night actions) ask for it via PM.
  • You may communicate as normal during the twilight phase until I close the thread but votes/un-votes will not count.
  • Extensions may be granted for replacements or extenuating circumstances.
  • A missed Night Action will result in a No Action.
  • The game will end when all threats to town have been eliminated or that is not possible.
  • A single player may potentially perform up to two actions per night phase. This means that, for instance, a scum player may use an active ability AND kill a target player on the same night.
  • Day talk is active.
  • If you must replace out, PM me privately and stop posting in thread.

Spoiler: At least one player will receive the following role PM
Welcome to Mini Normal 1843! You are a Vanilla Townie!

Abilities
You have your voice and your vote. Use them well to discover the truth.

Win Condition:
You win when all threats are eliminated to the town and at least one town member is still alive.


Here is the game thread. Please confirm via PM with your role name and alignment

Hey everyone, let's have a good game!

Two important observations from recent games:

  1. Even though I have some amount of mercy in me, I am a firm believer in Lynch All Liars. I therefore request all town players not to try stupid gambits like fakeclaiming, as those actions are highly likely to significantly hamper my ability to find scum.
  2. I do not believe in a Random Voting Stage. I do believe in the principle of using votes to get discussion started, and I acknowledge that early in the game, there isn't much information to go on, but I firmly believe that voting someone over a (very) weak scumtell is better then voting someone completely randomly.

Vote: Hoopla

By using dice tags to determine who you vote, you prove (instead of merely claim) that your vote was made without any intent whatsoever. As such, your posts #5 and #6 are specifically designed not to give town any additional information. Because town needs information on the most important question of the game (who is scum), whereas scum is fully informed on that matter, your posts do not benefit town as much as they should. Why are you intentionally playing in a way that is more beneficial to scum then to town?
There is no 'a' in Michel.

But Michel, if I used dice tags during LYLO or deep in the game, that would be an extreme faux pas. Better to get it out of the way on page 1.

I checked the mods ruleset before I did it. I agree dice rolling can be a bit overpowered, though.

So your explanation for using a dice tag for your random vote is that you are absolutely required to use dice tags at least once during the game?

Lylo. If you are the deciding vote in LYLO, chances are scum brought you there because they believe you'll vote wrong. Maybe dice tags will give you a better shot.

^I actually find that logic quite appealing.

Michel, I ~retract~ my dice roll and will be saving it for LYLO.

Just in that usual early-game way where everyone's either too relaxed or too uptight.

I assume it'll go away.

goodmorning's fear of the dice is strange. Don't be afraid of what the universe has planned for you.

You actually have better odds of not being rolled now that you've already came up once.

Don't let that withhold you from explaining why you used them in the first place.

And to answer your question: it depends on what you're using the dice tags for, obviously. I much prefer you using dice tags for a valid reason during Lylo over you using them to determine who to vote now. It's just that I can't see "determining who to vote" as a valid reason during any point in the game.

By your theory, not voting at all is just as bad. Any reason you didn't comment on my and TwoFace's lack of vote?
