Game Rules

General Rules/Game Etiquette
  1. Obey all Site-wide Rules.
  2. Communication outside the thread (if your role specifically allows it) is allowed until the game begins.
  3. You may not quote private communication of any kind. This includes moderator-supplied information (either real or fabricated) of any kind. Paraphrasing (for role claims, etc.) is acceptable.
  4. There is to be NO personal communication outside of the forum postings unless your role PM specifically allows it.
Activity/Prods/Replacements
  1. Prods of missing players will be issued after 30 hours of no activity.
  2. A prodded player has 24 hours to respond to the prod, after which time a replacement search will begin. The prodded player may re-enter the game so long as no replacement has been found.
  3. A player who has been prodded 3 times is subject to possible replacement without further notice.
  4. If you anticipate being unavailable for more than 30 hours please PM me or post in the thread to declare V/LA.
  5. I reserve the right to force replace players who need extensively long V/LA at my own discretion.
Deadlines
  1. Deadlines for this game will be 10 days for Day 1 and 7 days for following Day Phases. Night Phases will last a maximum of 48 hours.
  2. Players may request an early end to the Night Phase by PM'ing me. Night will be cut short if all players request it.
  3. Extensions are given only in extreme circumstances.
  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 will forfeit your actions.
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 must be bolded or use the [.vote] tags to be counted (e.g. Vote: Player or VOTE: Player).
  3. 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 made using nicknames or abbreviations will be counted at my discretion. Fake vote gambits should be executed at your own peril. If I think its a vote, then its a vote.
Miscellaneous
  1. I will use Bolded Dark Blue (#004080) for Mod posts. Don't impersonate me. No invisible/small/encrypted text is allowed.
  2. Any situation not explicitly covered above is subject to my discretion and will be handled as I see fit on a case-by-case basis.

Row 2Town Jailkeeper and Town DoctorTown Jailkeeper and Town TrackerTown Jailkeeper and Vanilla Townie
Row 3Town Cop and Town DoctorTown Neapolitan and Town DoctorTown Tracker and Town Doctor

Each Newbie Game will be given a setup that incorporates one mafia role from the top of a column, and then two town roles from a row below the selected mafia role. The remaining six roles will be filled in by one mafia goons and five vanilla townies appropriately, to create a 2-mafia and 7-town setup.

All Newbie games use the Natural Action Resolution system for determining Night action effects. Mafia Roleblocker action takes precedence over a Town Jailkeeper action should that apply.

Mafia have access to their Private Topic at all times.

oh yeah ic will probably post but
to all newbies
this is RVS, or random voting stage
basically since on this site we play day start, nobody really starts with any information so generally people just vote randomly and ask questions to generate discussion and get reactions out of people
and the hope is town will get some information from RVS so we can move out of it and begin scumhunting (looking for the mafia)

First order of business, do not communicate with anyone in this game or not in this game about this game. That means don't send any other player in the game a PM, don't talk to anyone else who plays mafia about the game on Discord, don't talk about the game on sitechat, don't mention the game in other games, and so on. Read the board announcement about this, thoroughly, please.

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=30909

Please read the game rules post before you start playing. If you have any questions about the rules, or about your role, ask the moderator. Don't say what your role is or post your role PM or any other mod communication in the game thread. I am here to answer game mechanics- or theory-related questions and I will answer them truthfully regardless of my alignment, you can trust me on that because it's part of the rules of being an IC.

To start off I'd appreciate it if everyone answered a few questions:

1) What sort of activity can we expect from you this game?
2) Have you played forum mafia before, and if so, where, and how has that informed your play?
3) Do you prefer hunting mafia or manipulating town, and why?

I'll start off.

1) What sort of activity can we expect from you this game?
I should pretty much be living in thread, but I don't want to be too ubiquitous so that the thread has time to breathe.

2) Have you played forum mafia before, and if so, where, and how has that informed your play?
I've played on so many different sites that I've lost count. I'm from Westeros, where we play with short deadlines. I tend to get reads from interactions a lot, which lends itself really well to short deadlines, and I really value working with other people and try to keep everyone on the same level, so that no one feels excluded or irrelevant. That's the general attitude over there.

3) Do you prefer hunting mafia or manipulating town, and why?
I prefer hunting mafia, because I think trying to solve the puzzle of the game is a lot more challenging and rewarding than just lying through my teeth all game and having all the answers. I love working with other people and that comes a lot more naturally when I'm town, since I'm trying to solve things myself and it's pro-wincon for me to keep everyone motivated and interested in also figuring things out. There are very few things more enjoyable to me in mafia than working with people who I really connect with and solving the game together. When I'm mafia I just have to do things that other people like and that's not quite as rewarding. The only real fun I get out of playing mafia is working with my mafia team to lynch all the silly townies and either strategizing or just chilling out together in the mafia qt.

(1) I’m probably in a different time zone to most of you, and generally post in the evenings (my time), which starts now. I can’t post from work during the day, as this site is blocked on our work computers. Sometimes I post from my mobile phone. That’s one reason why my posts are usually pretty short. Another is that I’m still figuring out how to play this game.
(2) I’ve played one full game, and am now in a couple of games. I was mafia in my first game, which threw me, and I had no idea how to act, so probably played the game pretty badly. Prior to that game, I had never played mafia or any game like it in my life. I saw some kids playing it on the train and had no idea what it was. I came home and asked my own kids if they’d ever heard of a game where someone was the mafia, and they said of course! And here I am.
(3) After my bad first experience, I’d have to say that I prefer hunting mafia, not being hunted. I can see that manipulating town could be fun though.

1) Fairly active but my posting will probably drop of next week
2) This my third game so far. I think the most important thing i've learnt is to always think about motivations behind posts.
3) Hunting mafia i guess? I don't know what you mean by manipulating town

Sure, you can be town too for now.

If you're mafia, your job is to manipulate town into thinking that you are town, that your mafia partner is town, and that other town are mafia. Because you know everyone's alignment, every read you state in thread is actually a lie, every moment where you pretend to be uninformed about alignments is a lie, regardless of what you do your intent is always going to be to manipulate people because that's how you win the game as mafia.

Oh right you were basically saying do you prefer being town or mafia. In that case then i would say mafia probably. i've played 1 game as town and 1 game as mafia, both games were enjoyable but i think playing as town can get frustrating at times

Not much, but I should probably answer this too:

1) What sort of activity can we expect from you this game?
I'll be pretty active. I'll check in every once in a while!

2) Have you played forum mafia before, and if so, where, and how has that informed your play?
Never played forum mafia before. A few days ago or so I was invited to play a few marathon games w/ a friend of mine. That went horribly wrong. :( From that, I can tell that posting in the "goldilocks zone" as I would call it is very important.

3) Do you prefer hunting mafia or manipulating town, and why?
From the two marathon games I played - my only experience, hunting mafia seems easier than manipulating town. One game I was scum and I inadvertently threw everyone under a bus. The next I was townie and I was figuring out from a list who was scum, despite me lurking around and such.

I'll just use the word often instead of every once in a while lol

Goldilocks, like the fairy tale? I'm just using the fairy tale in this sense where you don't post too much or post too little. I read up on some theory beforehand regarding activity
