rules, adapted from nexus's

--most important rule: be nice and don't be mean--

general:
- Please adhere to the site rules.
- Do not discuss this game of mafia outside of this thread.
- Day phases will last 5 days, 15 hours and 30 minutes (or until an execution is achieved).
- Night Phases will last 39 hours maximum. On any given night, if all players PM me that they are okay to speed up the night, it will end sooner.
- During night phase, no talking may be done in the thread.
- Do not quote PM's from the mod at all (real or fabricated). This includes specific timestamps; please ask me if you're uncertain whether something breaks this rule. Paraphrasing is acceptable.
- If you have any questions about your role, or the game, feel free to PM the mod.
- "Bah" posts are not allowed.
- i don't like players using the term "lynch" in my game, and i make an effort to provide a bunch of fun and stupid alternatives. i would appreciate seeing that effort returned
- If you break any of these rules, you might get modzoinked.

voting / player actions:
- Vote either with vote tags (VOTE: schadd) or with bold (vote: schadd). Note that I didn't include the underscore in my username; you may choose to use a string that will uniquely identify a player to me instead of the exact thing.
- Don't try to confuse me with your votes.
- You may vote No Execution to Not Execute.
- An Execution will occur once a majority decision is reached. If no majority is reached by deadline, then no execution shall occur.
- Following an execution, it is twilight. You may continue to post until I lock the thread and declare it night.
- If nobody dies for 3 consecutive day and night phases, the town will win.
- If you have a Night Action, you may submit it from Night 1 and each subsequent Night (or whichever nights are specified by the role).

activity:
- You are expected to post at least once every 48 hours. If you haven't posted for 48 hours, I shall prod you. If you do not respond to the prod within 24 hours (either in thread if it's Day, or via PM during the Night) then I will replace you.
- As well, if you require more than three prods, I will force-replace you.
- If you decide to replace out, PLEASE PM me and don't post in thread after doing so - if you want to rescind the replacement BLEASE PM ME AGAIN and dont post in thread until i have been like "ok np"

mechanics:
- Aquamarine, 21B35F is my color. Please don't use it.
- No impossible/hard to read text, or cryptography. For example, I would prefer that no font size smaller than the one you're reading now be used.
- The mod may make mistakes - please point out any mistakes gently. Mistakes will be corrected where possible, but sometimes mistakes are made that cannot be reversed. These will stand as final to be commiserated over after the game.
- If you need to get the mod's attention, either PM me, or bold the text you wish to draw to my attention.
- I reserve the right to alter/remove/add any rules as I see fit. You will, of course, be notified if that happens, however.



SETUP (reiterated from signups):

the skeleton of this game is a 19 player normal setup. however, the voting mechanics during the day will be different: i will assign everybody to a voting bloc during the day. each player will be put into a group, and votes are allocated on the level of the group - so if a group of 5 players is, by plurality, voting player X, all 5 of that group's votes will be allocated to eliminating player X. here is a sample ending of a day while 11 players are alive (letters represent players)
A, B, C blocA (2): B, C
H (1): A

D, E, F, G, H blocA (4): G, F, E, H
not voting (1): D

I, J, K blocB (1): K
C (1): I
G (1): J

in this scenario, player A would receive 8 votes, and one person among B, C, G chosen randomly would receive 3 votes. days will end when a majority is reached (which would occur with this vote count), but i imagine most days will end at deadline on plurality (so the day phases will be fairly short, 5 days and 15 hours and 30 minutes long).

something to understand is that these groups will be chosen by me (as well as my team of consultants) to try to be as Evil as possible. to the best of my ability, i will organize the groups in a way that disrupts gameplay, creates unreasonable power dynamics and overvalues certain players' votes, exacerbates personality clashes, and generates a wave of Pure Nonsense that will influence execution choices. as such, this is a bastard game, however this paragraph is the extent of the bastardness: i will try not to create any obvious alignment information in these assignments (unless it is very funny) and nothing else is fishy i promise - it will be 15:4, normal setup (which you can expect to be not insane), no mod lying, etc. i hope to create a game that you can still theoretically take seriously in spite of it all.

if there are only one or two more town alive than mafia, this gimmick is not in play (votes occur as normal).

ADDITIONAL INFO:
  • it is quite possible that spectating players can influence my thought processes for the bloc allocations
  • private topics will be open during day phases
  • there will be no traitor or ninja roles.
  • reiterating here that it is 15:4 and a normal setup

sample townie PM:
welcome to electoral college mafia! you are a vanilla townie. you have no special abilities.

you win when all threats to the town are eliminated.

please confirm by telling me what the bolded green text says.

GROUP 2not voting (3): mastina, bugspray, Randy Savage
For the record:
schadd would expect me to townbloc with the players in my voting block. (I've VERY good reason to believe this to be the case.)

He tried to make things as Evil as possible, per his word.

If he knows my personality and thus knows that I would naturally be inclined to townbloc with my group...it then follows, he inverted it, making the group be scum with the expectation that I would townbeard by townblocking with scum.

Therefore, bugspray and Randy Savage are both scum. :P

VOTE: bugspray
(Not that it matters much if my theory is correct tho.)

Pretty sure your bloc isn't actually voting anyone since the plurality is on Not Voting

Unless I've just completely misunderstood how this works.
