Rules

All rules listed in the Boilerplate Game Rules (rev. April 23, 2014) page apply to this game except where contradicted in the additional rules below:

  1. Days will have a deadline of two weeks, and Nights will last 48 hours where applicable. Deadline extensions will be granted only in extenuating circumstances.
  2. Lynches occur through simple majority (50% of living players + 1, rounded down). If no majority is reached at deadline, then no lynch will occur. Once majority is reached, no further votes or unvotes will count.
  3. Dead players and spectators may not post until the game has been officially declared over. No "Bah!" posts.
  4. Prods are automatically issued after 48 hours of inactivity. Players who have been prodded have 48 hours to post in the game thread before a replacement is sought. Players who have not posted during the Day phase or who have not responded to their Night prods will be replaced. An excessive number of prods can lead to replacement without further notice. Any player may request a prod at any time.
  5. Actions not received by deadline will be counted as "No Action". Actions may be submitted ahead of time and can be changed as many times as desired. At deadline, the last valid action that was submitted will be used. Actions may be submitted via PM or private topic.
  6. Votes placed by accounts not present in the game will not be counted. Vote tricks will not be tolerated, and any judgment passed over the validity of any ambiguous votes is final.
  7. Do not use #BF0000. All other formatting is fair game.
  8. Flavor is for entertainment purposes only and has no significance in the game.
  9. Any situations not covered above will be handled on an individual basis. I reserve the right to add, modify, or remove rules as necessary.



Setup

The 14-player Switch open setup consists of three mafiosi, one serial killer, ten townies, and the following mechanics:

  • The serial killer chooses immunity from either mafia kills or cop/vigilante action.
  • Town power roles are "switched" on or off by their mafia switch counterpart.
  • The serial killer may counteract up to three of the mafia's switches.
  • An individual mafia-aligned player may not perform both a kill and switch on the same Night.
Below are all of the role PMs:

Mafia Roles

Welcome to Open 704, XXX!

You are a mafia cop switch with YYY, who is a mafia doctor switch, and ZZZ, who is a mafia vigilante switch.

Each Night, you and your partners may talk in this private topic and choose one person to kill.

You win when all threats to the mafia have been eliminated and at least one member of the mafia remains standing.

The game thread is here. Please confirm by responding to this PM with your alignment and role.

Neutral Roles

Welcome to Open 704, XXX!

You are a neutral serial killer.

Each Night, you may choose one person to kill, and you may reverse up to three of the mafia's switches. This will trigger the opposite outcome of how the mafia left a switch (e.g., if the mafia left a switch OFF, then you will switch it ON and thereby activate that town role). On Night 0, you must choose one of two available immunities: immunity from Night kills by the mafia, or immunity from cop investigations and Night kills by the town vigilante.

You win when all threats to you have been eliminated and you remain standing.

The game thread is here. Please confirm by responding to this PM with your alignment and role.

Return to Top

Town Roles

Welcome to Open 704, XXX!

You are a town vanilla.

You have no special abilities beyond the right to vote.

You win when all threats to the town have been eliminated and at least one member of the town remains standing.

The game thread is here. Please confirm by responding to this PM with your alignment and role.

Welcome to Open 704, XXX!

You are a town cop.

Each Night, you may choose one person to investigate. If your action is successful, you will learn whether that player is "Guilty" or "Innocent". If your action is unsuccessful for any reason, you will receive "No Result". Please note that your action may fail if you have been deactivated.

You win when all threats to the town have been eliminated and at least one member of the town remains standing.

The game thread is here. Please confirm by responding to this PM with your alignment and role.

Welcome to Open 704, XXX!

You are a town doctor.

Each Night, you may choose one person to protect. If that player is targeted with any action that Night that would result in that player's death, that action will fail and your target will survive. You will not be informed as to whether or not your action is successful. Please note that your action may fail if you have been deactivated.

You win when all threats to the town have been eliminated and at least one member of the town remains standing.

Thinking about the setup. Doc's dead, so mafia/SK will kill every night.

Assume we mislynch someone D1. Then going into the night we're 7v3v1. If mafia and SK both kill townies, we're 5v3v1 LyLo-ish. At that point even if we lynch mafia (5v2v1), mafia and SK could both hit town and create 3v2v1 which is nearly unwinnable. I'm assuming the vig doesn't get anyone.

So this sucks. Basically means we can't afford a mislynch at all because it'll be hilariously difficult to get a lynch later.

Chin up. Maybe the sk hits mafia. Maybe the vig or cop get a chance to act.

Too early to crap all over town's chances. smh

Like Fitz just said though. Let's say the big takes a shot and misses. You then have what a 75% chance of nailing scum and then granted if I did quick math it's lylo but the odds are very heavily in towns favor for an actual win of the game.

I mean avoiding a mislynch is generally in town's best interests so I'm not sure of the intent of this post. Are you just basically discouraging lolhammers? (also generally a good policy)

I'm more discouraging policy lynches, which I'm usually significantly more okay with.

Not_Mafia is a lolhammerer with a history of losing games for town (or hiding behind lolhammers as scum) so we should also avoid L-1ing people.
