A bar walks into a bar. The bartender is a snake eating its own tail. The windows look out only onto the face of the one who looks.

Game Rules
Adapted and distilled from various moderators


Wheaton's Law
Don't be a dick.

Remember that this is a game and your main objective is to have fun. Be considerate of each other, don’t get personal, and enjoy the game. Playing to win does not preclude being considerate of each other!

I have a low tolerance for personal attacks in this game. I reserve the right to warn you publicly or privately and to remove you from the game at any time. When in doubt, see Wheaton's Law.


General Rules/Game Etiquette
  1. This game will start with a Day phase.
  2. Communication outside the thread (if your role specifically allows it) is allowed until the game begins. It is not permitted otherwise during day phases.
  3. You may not quote private Moderator-supplied information (either real or fabricated) of any kind. Paraphrasing (for role claims, etc.) is acceptable. When in doubt, ask me. I don't bite!
  4. Please remember that you made a commitment to participate when you signed up to play. If you cannot fulfill this commitment, please contact the Mod and request a replacement instead of just disappearing! I won't hate you, I promise.
  5. There is to be NO personal communication outside of the forum postings unless your role PM specifically allows it. If someone contacts you outside the game you should report it to me IMMEDIATELY.

Activity/Prods/Replacements
  1. You should aim for one post every 48 hours, minimum, to keep the game moving.
  2. Prods of missing players will be issued upon request or after 2 real-life days of no activity.
  3. A prodded player has 48 hours to respond to the prod with a game-advancing post, after which time a replacement search will begin. The prodded player may re-enter the game so long as no replacement has been found.
  4. A player who has been prodded 3 times is subject to possible replacement without further notice.
  5. If you anticipate being unavailable for more than a 48-hour period please PM the Mod so that you don’t get replaced! However, if it is an extended period of time I may replace you anyway, so check first.

Deadlines
  1. All Newbie games have strict 2-week deadlines.
  2. Extensions are given only in extreme circumstances. Not "extreme" like "woah dude, that gnarly flip was so extreme," but "extreme" like "woah dude, that tsunami that wiped out the servers was so extreme."
  3. Nights will have a standard deadline of 72 hours.
  4. If you have a role with a Night action your choices are due to me by the posted deadline. If I do not receive your choice via PM by the posted deadline you may forfeit your actions.
  5. Deadlines may be shortened if activity is too low, or if all Night choices have been received early.

Player Actions/Voting/Player Death
  1. A simple majority of all living players must agree on one person (via voting) for a Lynch to occur (simple majority = ½ # of living players +1, rounded down). If no one has a simple majority of votes at deadline a No Lynch will occur.
  2. Votes should be bolded or they may not be counted (e.g. Vote: Player). Vote tags are your friend and are much sexier, trust me.
  3. Vote revocations should be bolded or they may not be counted (e.g. Unvote: Player or Unvote). Unvotes are not necessary before changing votes.
  4. You may Vote: No Lynch - a simple majority of these vote types are required to send the game to Night phase without a Lynch.
  5. Votes/Unvotes should be placed on a line all by themselves to make them easier for everyone to see.
  6. Votes/Unvotes that reasonably follow the guidelines specified above, and are unambiguous with respect to player nicknames/abbreviations, will count. Attempting to fake a vote will result in a Modkill.
  7. Once a player has reached a simple majority of votes no further unvoting will change their fate. Muahahahaha.
  8. When a player is lynched the game enters twilight until I post a death scene; all players may continue to post.
  9. If you are killed (either via lynch or night kill) you may no longer post except for a brief “Bah!”-type post that contains NO game related information. It may include up to one (1) picture of a cute animal.
  10. Roles with Night actions will not be able to submit an action on Night 0 (i.e. during the confirmation stage).
  11. Any player with a Night action may instead submit a “No Action” PM to let the Mod know that you do not want to perform your expected action that Night phase.

Miscellaneous
  1. Mech and ooc text is reserved for the Mod. Do not use either of these; ooc will be used when I edit your posts. No invisible/small/encrypted text is allowed.
  2. If you have an issue/problem with the game, please PM me privately. Do not post issues/complaints in the game thread. I don't bite. If you aren't comfortable taking the issue to me, send it up the chain to Mina.
  3. 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 I fuck up too badly I'll buy you all a cookie or something.
  4. Please bold all requests to the Mod so that they don’t get missed.
  5. Rules violations will be dealt with according to their severity (up to and including a Modkill) as the Mod sees fit.
  6. Modkills may be accompanied by a change to day/night. The offender’s role will be changed to Neutral Survivor, which guarantees a loss.
  7. Any situation not explicitly covered above is subject to Mod discretion and will be handled as the Mod sees fit on a case-by-case basis.

The remaining six roles will be filled in by mafia goons and vanilla townies appropriately, to create a 2-mafia and 7-town setup.

Hey y'all, feel free to call me arona if it's easier. I had an account on this site like five years ago, but that was a long time ago and I'm a different person now. And I wasn't ever good at this game so here I am. I do know that we're supposed to random vote, so

Hey guys! Really looking forward to giving this a go. I've played mafia once or twice in real life and have read quite a bit of finished games on here, but other than that I'm mostly a newb.

This seems to be the trend on here,

Hey everyone!

I've played some mafia in real life but never online. It'll be interesting to play without the help of body language tells - let's see how this goes!

I'll start us off with some strategy talk...

Since there are 7 town and 2 mafia it's unlikely that a day one lynch will be useful (since we're unlikely to land on a mafia). I'm in favor of a day one no lynch.

The math isn't exact. If playing purely randomly, we are likely to lynch town. We don't. We play based off our feelings. Lynching is the only tool we have to kill scum, as inefficient as it may be.

We randomly vote until we get a feel for who is scum. Everyone scumhunts in their own way,but we do lynch unless the game hits mylo (where a mislynch loses the game).

We do not hammer (majority vote on a player) without a claim.

Any other questions, feel free to ask. I will be trying to ensure everyone has fun and develops their own technique. I will be honest about the ideal play.

No lynches are bad.

How do you assume the question is legitimate?

I see someone wanting to ensure scum feel no heat today as possible scum. It needs to be examined.

@Titus: it's a newbie game, plus i didn't see any mafia experience in his post history. Also I'm not sure pushing for a no lynch D1 is really optimum scum strategy, so i don't know what heat you're talking about.

if we don't lynch, we don't catch scum. Scum know this and thus favor no lynching. There's also no info to go off of to see who is right, who is wrong, and who should recalibrate.
