Mafia Large Normal 231 | Etymologies

A game of hidden roles and social deduction.

Modded by Mizzytastic. Backup modded by the worst. Reviewed for normalcy and balance by Flavor Leaf and Ircher




In this game I will be sharing entries from one of my favourite sites etymonline.com, an etymology dictionary. Sometimes I will be sharing words related to the game of mafia (though obviously not relevant for determining what is going on in the game), sometimes I will go down rabbit holes of related words, sometimes I'll highlight words I know with interesting etymologies or relations and sometimes I'll just get curious about a word and post whatever I find.

etymonline.com wrote:game (n.)
-
c. 1200, from Old English gamen "joy, fun; game, amusement," common Germanic (cognates: Old Frisian game "joy, glee," Old Norse gaman "game, sport; pleasure, amusement," Old Saxon gaman, Old High German gaman "sport, merriment," Danish gamen, Swedish gamman "merriment"), said to be identical with Gothic gaman "participation, communion," from Proto-Germanic *ga- collective prefix + *mann "person," giving a sense of "people together."

The -en was lost perhaps through being mistaken for a suffix. Meaning "contest for success or superiority played according to rules" is first attested c. 1200 (of athletic contests, chess, backgammon). Especially "the sport of hunting, fishing, hawking, or fowling" (c. 1300), thus "wild animals caught for sport" (c. 1300), which is the game in fair game (see under fair (adj.)), also gamey. Meaning "number of points required to win a game" is from 1830. Game plan is 1941, from U.S. football; game show first attested 1961.

      I'm trying a new format for my rules posts and would appreciate feedback at any point during the game via PM. Evolution of my rules/formatting has been inspired by Korina and Plotinus, and feedback from xofelf.

      Golden RuleGolden Rule: If I think it counts it counts. Don't play around with edge cases then plead you didn't mean it to be interpreted that way.


      Content and EtiquetteSite Rules: Follow all site rules. Common mistakes are talking about ongoing games and discussing replacements, and players not playing to achieve their win condition.

      Keep it civil: This is a game where we get to call each other scum and manipulate and lie to others. Beyond that please keep it civil, I don't ever want to reach the point where I don't want to read the game I'm running. If you feel like a player has gone too far but hasn't stopped after you ask them to please contact me.

      Don't use "lynch": The site is in the process of moving away from using the words "lynch" and "hang". If you are unsure of an alternative I suggest elimination, elim, E-1, ELo, MELo etc.

      Readibility: Everyone should be able to read your posts. This is an English language site so use English. Avoid using text smaller than 75. Don't use BBCode features in a way that makes your posts difficult to read.

      Concealed messages: Cryptography is not permitted. Steganography (hidden text/messages) is not permitted other than breadcrumming.

      Provable randomness: You are not permitted to use a provably random or pseudo-random (most computer generated random numbers) results in the game. Saying you did without showing the evidence is not provable and so permitted.


      Communications and Private ThreadsOther threads: You may talk in any game threads you have access to at any time, unless specified elsewhere (e.g. the Game Setup post or your Role PM).

      Private Notes Thread: You may request a private note thread. You may post in that thread at any time.

      Quoting: Quoting this thread in this thread is always ok. You may quote this thread in other game related threads you have access to. You may not quote any other game related threads in this one. You may draft a post in a private notes thread, but copy and paste the content without quote tags. You may not quote any mod communications. Paraphrasing any of these things is ok, creating a fake quote is not.

      Claiming mafia: Part of paraphrasing mod communications is claiming roles. Claiming to be part of an anti-town faction is ok. Many mods ban claiming your team mates, whether real or faked. If you do want to claim your team mates, real or fake, I ask you to strongly consider if it could be considered playing against your win con and check with me if you are unsure.

      Redactions: The Dead and Spectators Thread will be released at the end of the game. Any other threads will be released 48 hours after game end, or when all players in them have said it is ok to release them. You can use that 48 hours to redact posts or request the thread isn't released.

      Communicating with the mod: If you want to VOTE: XXXX or UNVOTE: XXXX use the appropriate tags, I skim looking for those tags when doing a vote count and may miss it otherwise. If you want to get my attention for some other reason bold it or PM me, otherwise I may miss it and not answer.

      Mod Colour: #8000FF is my prefered colour. You can use it but don't bold it, or use it to imitate me.


      Deadlines, Activity and V/LAPre-game: The game is locked during pre-game and confirmation. Once all Role PMs have been sent people have 48 hours to reply via PM or the Mafia Private Thread with their role and alignment. The game will start after 16/20 players have confirmed or the 48 hours have passed, after which unconfirmed players will be replaced.

      Day-time: Day 1 lasts for 12 days (288 hours). Later days last for 10 days (240 hours). Once 10 or fewer players are alive deadlines will be reduced to 8 days (192 hours).

      Night-time: Night lasts for 48 hours. The game thread is locked during night. See Night Actions in the next section for more info about how they work.

      Quick night: If all living players request a quick night, I will resolve the night phase as soon as possible.

      Prods and replacements: You will be prodded after not posting for 48 hours, or 72 hours over the weekend or when V/LA. You will have 24 hours to post or be replaced. If you are prodded 3 times you will be replaced. If you repeatedly post close to prod timer or respond to prods without game advancing content I reserve the right to give you stricter activity requirements.

      V/LA: You can go Vacation/Low Access by requesting in thread, by PM or the option in your User Control Panel. If you are V/LA for longer than 72 hours with no expectation of access request a replacement instead. I reserve the right to seek a replacement if a player is V/LA for a long period of time.


      Game Actions and DeathVoting: You can vote for a player or a no elimination with VOTE: XXXX vote tags. If a majority is reached that player (or no one) will be eliminated and the game will enter twilight. If the deadline for the day is reached without a majority no one is eliminated. (bolded votes will be counted but I am very likely to miss them so please don't)

      Twilight: Twilight is the time period between a majority vote or deadline and me locking the thread. The voted player is not currently dead and may talk normally. Votes are no longer counted.

      Death: You are dead once I have revealed your role and alignment. You will gain access to the Dead and Spectators Thread. You may still post in a Private Notes Thread but not in any other game threads, not even a contentless BAH post.

      Night Actions: Night actions can be submitted by PM or the Mafia Private Thread. You will be reminded of any pending night actions 24 hours before night ends - this is not a prod. Night actions submitted after the deadline but before I process the results are forfeited.

      SetupDay talk: If you are a member of a shared private thread you may talk there at any time, including the day, as long as you are alive, unless your Role PM says otherwise.

      Action Resolution and Multitasking: Actions are resolved according to Natural Action Resolution. If you have multiple night actions available you may only perform one unless your Role PM says otherwise.

      Win Conditions: Win conditions for Town and Mafia are as follows:
      Town: You win when all threats to the town are dead and at least 1 member of the town is alive.
      Mafia: You win when all players not aligned with you are dead and at least 1 member of your mafia family is alive, or nothing can prevent that from happening.

      Sample Roles: Below are an example role for a Vanilla Townie and a Mafia Goon. At least 2 players are a Vanilla Townie. 1 or more players might be a Mafia Goon.


      Vanilla TownieYou are a Vanilla Townie

      Each day you may talk in the game thread and vote on who to eliminate.

      You win when all threats to the town are dead and at least 1 member of the town is alive.

      The game thread is here, please confirm your role and alignment via pm.


      Mafia GoonYou are a Mafia Goon

      You form a Mafia family along with REDACTED.

      Each day you may talk in the game thread and vote on who to eliminate.

      Each night a member of your family may perform a factional kill. A member of your family will attempt to visit a player, and assuming no interference that player will die.

      You win when all players not aligned with you are dead and at least 1 member of your mafia family is alive, or nothing can prevent that from happening.

      The game thread is here and your Mafia private thread is REDACTED, please confirm your role and alignment via pm or your private thread.

      Day 1 | Game Begins




      etymonline.org wrote:begin (v.)

      Old English beginnan "to attempt, undertake," a rare word beside the more usual form onginnan (class III strong verb; past tense ongann, past participle ongunnen); from be- + West Germanic *ginnan, which is of obscure etymology and found only in compounds, perhaps "to open, open up" (compare Old High German in-ginnan "to cut open, open up," also "begin, undertake"), with sense evolution from "open" to "begin." Cognates elsewhere in Germanic include Old Frisian biginna "to begin," Middle Dutch beghinnen, Old High German beginnan, German beginnen, Old Frisian bijenna "to begin," Gothic duginnan.

      From late 12c. as "originate, be the originator of;" from c. 1200 as "take the first step in, start to deal with." Intransitive sense "come into existence" is from mid-13c.


      Official Votecount 1.0Anyone (0): Nobody

      With 20 players alive, it takes 11 votes to achieve an eliminaton.

      Day 1 will end in (expired on 2021-01-16 23:15:00).


      Momrangal, PrimeFighter and chkflip have until (expired on 2021-01-06 17:30:00) to confirm. Once the deadline is reached I'll start looking for replacements for anyone who hasn't confirmed.
