Welcome to Newbie 1821: The Newlywed Game. This is a forum mafia game for 9 players. It also continues the flavor train that is my obsession with daytime game show network television. Theme, while amusing and light, has no bearing whatsoever on roles, or game-play. It's just a pretty way of making the thread look neat. And possibly of posting pretty wedding photos....

The backup moderator for this game is Penguin_Alien. You may treat any post or message from her as if it came from me.

Here is the player roster. It will be updated to reflect replacements if any are to occur:
northsidegal
CheekyTeeky Artemis3000
Mr Moisto
Plus Minus
darrenwoodward10
Nictis doomslayer115
Keychain (SE) Whymafia (SE) Ciara24 (SE)
Assemblerotws (SE) RadiantCowbells (SE) iDanyboy (SE)
Huntress (IC)

Click the "spoiler" button here to see who is currently alive and who is currently dead:
Spoiler:
Alive:
Plus Minus
Assemblerotws RadiantCowbells (SE) iDanyboy (SE)
Huntress (IC)


Dead:
Nictis: Mafia Goon Lynched Day One
CheekyTeeky, Town Doctor, was killed night one.
UC Voyager, Vanilla Townie, was lynched day two.
Keychain, Vanilla Townie, was killed night two.
darrenwoodward10, Vanilla Townie, was lynched day three.
northsidegal, Town Tracker, was killed night three.


If for some tragic reason, a player is modkilled, their name will appear when you click this spoiler button:
Spoiler:
This better not happen ever.

Setup Info

This game is ran using the newbie setup, Matrix 6, Designed by Cogito Ergo Sum. This means there are six possible setups you can be playing.


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

Bulletproof
Mafia GoonTown Tracker


Each potential setup is represented by either a row or column. Therefore the six possible setups are:

1. Town Jailkeeper, Town 1-shot Bulletproof, 5 Vanilla Town, Mafia Roleblocker, Mafia Goon

2. Town Cop, 6 Vanilla Town, 2 Mafia Goons

3. Town Doctor, Town Tracker, 5 Vanilla Town, 2 Mafia Goons

4. Town Jailkeeper, 6 Vanilla Town, 2 Mafia Goons

5. Town Cop, Town Doctor, 5 Vanilla Town, Mafia Roleblocker, Mafia Goon

6. Town Tracker, Town 1-shot Bulletproof, 5 Vanilla Town, 2 Mafia Goons

Setup Specific Rules:
1. Mafia Power Roles may both use their night action and preform the kill.
2. The 1-shot Bulletproof player is NOT informed if their bulletproof ability has been used.
3. The Mafia Roleblocker resolves before the Town Jailkeeper, if needed.
4. The Bulletproof cannot be roleblocked.

My Rules
(You'll want to read these)

1. I don’t tolerate ad hom wars. If your posting is merely insulting a player without providing game content, you can expect a strike from me. Three strikes, you’re out. I’m fairly lenient about this, but posting “Fuck you” over and over again is simply not acceptable. Severe issues will be reported to the list mod(s).

2. If I say it violates these rules, it does. You can take it up with me postgame if you wish.

3. Play towards your win condition. Gambits are fine, directly harming your own team is not.

4. Once a lynch is reached, you may continue discussion until I lock the thread. No votes or unvotes will count after a lynch has been achieved.

5. A lynch is achieved as a majority of players voting for somebody. Half is not a majority.

6. Do not quote or pretend to quote any information you get from me via PM. This includes posting your role card verbatim. Paraphrasing is fine, as are role claims naturally.

7. Do not talk about this game anywhere else, or with anyone else.

8. All deadlines are exactly 2 weeks in duration. A countdown will be present in my vote count posts. All night phases will last 48 hours.

9. Do not discuss ongoing games in this thread. This includes games on sites other than mafiascum. This also includes using [redacted] as that loophole does not fly here.

10. I am rather lenient upon activity. You must post once every 48 hours. Failure to do so will earn you a prod. Respond to your prod within 24 hours, or face replacement. Three prods is also a force replacement.

11. Claiming scum by yourself is fine. Claiming scum with another player is an instant modkill. Don't do it.


12. I do not require unvotes. Your vote will be counted so long as you bold it or use the vote tag. Shorthand names are fine so long as it’s clear who the vote is for.

13. If you have a question, please PM me. I’m an addict that sits around on his inbox all day anyways. If a question is something that should be answered publicly, I will make a post addressing it without naming who asked it.

14. If my vote count is wrong, you can PM me or post in the thread (use the bold tag and "@MOD") about it.

15. I do not fix tags or edit posts where you might make a formatting mistake, even if you ask me to.

16. I reserve the right to add to these rules or modify them, but only when I post notifying all players in the game of the change.

17. Loophole abuse is all fun and games until I modkill you. Don’t try it.

18. Blue (This color at #0000FF)is my color. You are welcome to use any other color of the rainbow.

19. Encryption, text hiding, and the like are silly. Don’t do it.

20. Extensions will be granted at 48 hours per replacement, up to a total duration of 4 days max per game phase.

21. Do not use temporary information to convey messages. This includes your signature and your avatar, but is not limited to these things.

22. While putting your vote or unvote on its own line is helpful, it is not necessary and any attempts to game voting formatting will be dealt with as an attempt to cheat. If I think it was a vote, it was a vote.

23. A modkill will always punish the faction modkilled more as far as timing goes. All modkills will be done after consultation with the listmods. Modkills may or may not end the day. Modkilled players will be changed to a neutral survivor, meaning they lose the game instantly.

24. In the event of site downtime lasting more than 3 hours; time will be added to the deadline to compensate at a 1 to 1 ratio.

Flavor, this has no bearing on game mechanics or rulesOkay contestants, the first question! How many Mafiascum.net references can one Dudist priest drop in a single go?

We asked your partners. Now let's see how well you know their knowledge of this incredibly general and not at all vague topic!

Hello everyone!
I have had experience with Mafia in the past but this is my first time with forum-style Mafia, so this will be a new experience for me. That being said, I do agree on voting on who took so long to confirm. If only we could find out...

Hi everyone! I am the Inexperience-Challenged (IC) player in this game. Basically it means that if at any time you have any questions (not related to your role) about game mechanics, mafia theory or about anything that is happening in the game, feel free to ask and I will answer them to the best of my ability. Some things I may have to give a partial answer for because of the game being ongoing. If that happens I will let you know and will make a note to come back to it after the game is over. If you have any questions related to your role then please send a PM to the mod as these should not be asked in game.

I guarantee that I will not lie about theory and practice regardless of my alignment, and my alignment is randomized along with everyone else's so I could be either town or mafia.

I highly recommend reading Fonzie's Guide to Early Game Survival for Newbies Good for not-so-new players too!

Usually, once the game has officially begun, we start the game with the Random Voting Stage (RVS), where we vote for randomish reasons. The purpose of this is to immediately get people talking about things and to help get the game moving. Not everyone votes in their first post as you'll see when playing or reading more games. I sometimes do and sometimes don't. RVS tends to go on for a page or so until someone finds something worth following up.

Some people prefer to start with a Random Question Stage (RQS) instead, where they ask everyone to reply to a set of questions which may or may not appear relevant to the game. The danger of this is that players may inadvertantly say something which gives a clue to their role. (And be wary because some questioners may actually be fishing for this!)

Vote, but don't quicklynch! If your vote puts someone at L-1 (only one more vote needed to lynch), then say so. The next person who wants to vote that person should declare intent to hammer and ask for a claim before making the final vote. We don't have a fixed-length Day phase here so the Day ends as soon as a majority, in this case five votes, is reached. The deadline is only there to stop the day going on too long.

If you want to refer to other games that's fine as long as they are over. Never talk about other ongoing games.

I'll add more stuff as we go along but the best way to learn is from experience so jump in, keep active (try for at least one post a day), and have fun!

You too? Why the ellipses?

In post 11, Mr Moisto wrote:Also dose it normally take this long for people to confirm?

What often happens with newbie games is that some people new to the site sign up for a game and then never log in again. If that's happened here then those players will be replaced shortly.

I like to leave my trails of thought on ellipses, I like to think it adds effect. I wouldn't say it's unreasonable to vote off the people that made me wait this long for my first game because I was super hyped. And now the game finally starts when I've gone without sleeping for 29 hours and I'm waiting in an airport for my delayed flight, so yeah, I say let's vote off the people that are responsible for this.

Also, huge apology in advance if I mess up any of the syntax.

Trouble with that is that we can only tell for certain who delayed if they admit it or if they get replaced, and in the latter case it's not very fair on the replacements.


In post 15, Mr Moisto wrote:So do each Mafia members preform individual kills or do they share a single faction kill each night?

They share a single faction kill and have to choose which one of them will be carrying it out each night.

For what it is worth, my work schedule is standard monday to Friday 9 to 5 est, during which my only access is via phone.

That being said, i believe that quicklynching due to delays in confirmation when most of us would be new to the site and not yet committed to the experience is a bad idea, also that using irl stress factors to justify the mentality of quicklynching is irresponsible at best and scummy opportunism at worst.

My goal wasn't to quick lynch those responsible for the irl factors, I just wanted to contribute to the random voting stage. I'm not genuinely trying to lynch these people, but I can see we're quickly starting to move towards serious accusations.

okay so I'm confused with what is happening right now. Also I signed up last week Monday/Tuesday and I checked everyday, twice a day for a PM until Tuesday but then kinda gave up getting my hopes up, especially since I left for a roadtrip on Wednesday. Now that I know game is in play I'll check in more often.

I don't like +- for his lack of a vote when calling someone scummy and don't like that darrenwood doesn't like post 17 but responded to it in post 18 but didn't find it scummy untill post 23 after I had already voted him.
