Game Rules:

Rule 0: Don't be a dick. - If you are being a dick, you run the risk of force-replacement or modkill. You may or may not be warned.

General:
- Please adhere to the site rules.
- Do not discuss this game of mafia outside of this thread unless your role PM allows you to do so.
- Day phases will last 2 weeks maximum.
- Night Phases will last 48 hours maximum.
- During night phase, no talking may be done in the thread.
- Do not quote PM's from the mod at all (real or fabricated). Paraphrasing is acceptable. Additionally, no talking about mod communications in game at all.
- If you have any questions about your role, or the game, feel free to PM the mod.
- "Bah" posts are not allowed.
- If you break any of these rules, you will probably be modkilled.

Voting/Player Actions:
- All votes must be in bold format: vote: Nexus for example. You can also use vote tags.
- Try to unvote before voting. Unvotes must also be in bold.
- Any and all votes will be counted, if you wish to waste a day phase voting for someone not in the game,that's fine by me.
- You may vote No Lynch.
- Voting tricks are not acceptable. If you misspell someone's name intentionally, but I get the gist of it, the vote will count.
- A lynch will occur once a majority decision is reached. If no majority is reached by deadline, then no lynch shall occur.
- Following a lynch, it is twilight. You may continue to post until I lock the thread and declare it night.
- If you have a Night Action, you may submit it from Night 1 and each subsequent Night. No other time.

Activity:

- You are expected to post at least once every 72 hours. If you haven't posted for 72 hours, I shall prod you. If you do not respond to the prod within 48 hours (either in thread if it's Day, or via PM during the Night) then I will replace you.
- Similarly, if you require more than three prods, I will force-replace you.

Mechanics:
- Blue is my colour. Please don't use it.2
- Confirm by how your Role PM tells you to once you are ready to play. Once there are 17 confirms, the game begins.
- Do not edit your posts.
- No impossible/hard to read text, or cryptography.
- 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 there is a hydra in the game, you must not post in your normal account. Doing so and then not quoting it as a hydra will invite a warning. Excessive failure to post as a hydra and not quoting it will result in force-replacement.
- 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.

Newbie Setup
Matrix6 (as designed by Cogito Ergo Sum)[/align]

ABC
1Town JailkeeperVanilla TownieMafia Goon
2Mafia RoleblockerTown CopTown Doctor
3Town 1-shot
Bulletproof
Mafia GoonTown Tracker

Each Newbie Game will be given a setup that incorporates either one row or one column. The remaining six roles will be filled in by mafia goons and vanilla townies appropriately, to create a 2-mafia and 7-town setup. For example Row 1 (1 jailkeeper, 1 vanilla townie, 1 mafia goon) would add an additional 5 vanilla townies and 1 mafia goon, for a total setup of 1 jailkeeper, 6 vanilla townies, and 2 mafia goons.

*Roleblocker will take precedence over jailkeeper when resolving night actions should that apply.

Hello everyone!
My Timezone: GMT
I'll post at minimum 1-2 posts per day on average.

Could everyone give a rough idea of their experience with the game? How much games they've played, be it off site or whatever. I find it useful in getting a read on people if I know how much experience to mafia they've had.

I'll make an IC post when I get home, preferably on a pagetop.

Meanwhile, don't put someone to 4 votes until so.

I know, I just think it's pointless but at least it generates content so it's better than sitting here silently.

I don't know what to expect from Creature's "IC post" but basically -

1) Don't claim if you have only 1 or 2 votes and multiple more votes are needed for a lynch
2) Don't put a player at L-1 so early in the game (especially during RVS/RQS)
3) A player should state their intent to hammer before hammering (and wait for a claim before doing so).

and that is the reason we do it to get the game moving.


As for how much experience I have playing

Well over 50 games here on this site during about 4 1/2 years

3 completed games on another forum I hang out at fairly regularly where Mafia is a side thing we do.
1 ongoing game on yet another forum, where I only joined to play in that game.

I am in EDT but tend to be on and off the MS tab at different times. I work from home and depending on my work schedule I can have lots of time, or very little time (like this week is going to be really hectic). I have many tabs open at all times, but am not always focused on one specific tab.

This pretty much yes. It currently takes 5 votes for a lynch, so no need to claim unless you are at L-1 with intent to hammer on you. Which is why it is important to declare intent, to give the about to be hammered player a chance to claim and to give final reads and so on. That way if we are wrong, we at least have as much info as possible, and if they are an uncced PR, we have a chance to move the votes.

This is my third game here, and the second in which I participate from the beginning. Before joining here I was playing and GMing (mainly GMing) Mafia on another forum for about 4 years. Granted, it was a very different kind compared to the "barebone" mainstream mafia, but iti followed the same principle of finding the scum amidst the town.

I will further add that it is important to lynch every single day phase - even day 1. It narrows the scum pool and gives the mafia an advantage if we don't.

I thought it was pretty self-explanatory and simple math that we should lynch as we have 2 MLs (mislynches). I could probably go on and on, stating the obvious ie. Don't ever self-vote
