Voting, Lynching, and Deadlines
• Votes must be bolded in one of two ways:
or VOTE: Elyse
. If they are not bolded, they will not be counted, and I will inform you of your error so you can correct it.
• Unvotes will help me out, so please try to do them when changing votes.
• Nicknames are allowed when voting so long as I can easily decipher whom you are referring to.
• In order for a lynch to occur, a majority of votes must be reached. A majority is one half of the living players plus one.
• No Lynches are allowed. The same voting rules apply to voting for a No Lynch (i.e. bolded, majority must be reached).
• Once a voting decision is made, and the final majority vote is placed, no amount of unvoting will prevent this action from occurring – even if I am not online at the time of the final vote.
• If a majority is not reached by deadline, there will be a no lynch.
• The deadline for the first game day is three weeks long. The following day will be two weeks long, as will the remainder of the day phases. Deadline extensions will not exceed five days.
• Once a lynch has been made, the game enters twilight. All players who were alive before the lynch (including the newly lynched player) may continue posting until I am available to lock the thread and post the lynch scene.
• Once you die, you are no longer allowed to post until end-game (excluding the scenario above).
• “Bah” posts are not allowed. Once you’re dead, you’re dead.
• Nights will last three days. They will not be cut short even if all actions are submitted.
• Night actions may be submitted via private topic (if you have one) or PM. If you do not wish to submit an action, let me know by saying, “No Action.”
• If an action is not submitted by night’s deadline, it will be taken as a No Action.
Prods, Replacements, and Modkills
• Prods will be issued via PM.
• Prods will be sent after a player has not posted in game for approximately forty-eight hours (unless you have notified me that you will be V/LA).
• Saturday and Sunday will count as a 24-hour period.
• If there is not a response to the prod in approximately twenty-four hours, I will begin searching for a replacement. If you respond before I find a replacement, you are allowed to continue playing.
• Once a player receives three prods, I will begin searching for a replacement. Even if they return before I find a replacement, they will not get another chance to continue playing.
• Please post in the thread if you are going on V/LA or are requesting replacement. This will notify both me and the other players.
• If you break any of these rules, I reserve the right to replace or modkill you.
• If you are modkilled for breaking one of these rules, the day will not end, and you will be turned into a neutral survivor so you will not win with your faction.
• If I make an error that could break the game, I reserve the right to replace or modkill you. If it is an error on my part, you and your faction will not be punished.
• The Mafia Scum Rules apply in this game, as well as my own. If any of them contradict, please feel free to notify me.
• Under no circumstances are you allowed to contact a player within this game while this game is ongoing, unless your Role PM states otherwise.
• Quoting anything from me (including Role PMs) that is said outside of this game thread is prohibited. Pretending to quote something is prohibited, as well. Paraphrasing is allowed.
• Bold all requests to me, so it is less likely for me to miss them. If the topic you wish to discuss is personal or has to do with a serious mod error (one that could break the game), please address me via PM.
• Editing or deleting posts is not allowed.
• Do not use ridiculously small, invisible, or encrypted text.
• I will try to provide a vote count at least once a day, and if I am online, at the top of the page.
• As the moderator of this game, I reserve the right to change, add, or remove any of these rules at any time. I also reserve the right to replace or modkill any offenders, with or without a warning.
