Game Overview - Some rules were adopted from Plotinus, mhsmith0, and yessiree. Thanks!

  • This game is conditioned as a full reveal. Upon a player's removal, a player's role and alignment are released to the public.

  • The game will end when a game-ending faction has achieved its win condition. A game-ending faction is any faction whose wincon cannot win with any other wincon i.e. town, mafia, serial killer, jester, etc.

  • Flavor is for fun and is not indicative of alignment, roles, abilities, game mechanics, or anything else related to the game.

  • Scum are given the ability to talk during all phases of the game.

  • I will not answer game clarification questions in misleading ways. (i.e. I will not tell you that an ability is passive when it is actually active.)

  • I will not intentionally lie to you if you have a question concerning your role or the mechanics of the game. I may answer vaguely, i.e. “No comment” or “I cannot answer that at this time,” for instance.

  • In general: if a question would break the game or implicate another player's role, there is little chance that I will answer it.

Conduct:

  • Try to not take things personally. You should expect debates to potentially become heated.

  • Bear the following in mind: Some will lie, and others will be deceived. It is all in the spirit of the game. That said, personal attacks or the implication of personal attacks are strictly off-limits and may result in a Locked thread and/or a Mod Kill depending on the severity of the insults.

  • I have the final say. Respect my judgement. I reserve the right to adjust the rules as I see fit. I will always tell players about a change in the rules as these changes happen in order to ensure the prevention of game breaking incidents from occurring.

  • Pretending to break a rule is equal to actually breaking a rule and may get a player Mod-Killed depending on the nature of the infraction.

  • This is my color. Please don't use it. (#400080)

Post Content:

  • Respect and obey the MafiaScum Code of Conduct. All site wide rules apply. Play to win, please with respect, and try not to ruin the game for other players.

  • Do not talk about this game anywhere else unless I have specified it is permitted such as in a private topic. This includes PM-ing other players.

  • No invisible, cryptographic, or deliberate obfuscation of text.

  • No talking after death.

  • No editing or deleting your posts.

  • No discussion of ongoing games.

  • Paraphrasing is acceptable.

Activity Requirements:

  • Players who have failed to confirm their role PM within 48 hours after role PMs have been distributed will be auto-replaced.

  • After 48 hours of inactivity, players will be prodded to ensure that they are still interested in playing the game and continue to participate. After the prod, players will have 24 hours to respond with game related material or be replaced.

  • Players can request other players be prodded within reason and at the mod's discretion. These will be unofficial prods and will not count towards the two prod limit, but the prodded player will be expected to post game-advancing content within roughly 24 hours of being unofficially prodded. Failure to post game-advancing content within that 24 hour time-frame will in an official prod being handed out to said player.

  • If you have not posted game advancing content in 4 days, regardless of V/LA status, you will be replaced.

  • To avoid being replaced for inactivity, be sure to include game advancing content to your post i.e. “Got prodded, X is still scum. I'll catch up later”. Naked prod dodges ("I'll get to this later,") do not reset the prod timer.

  • If you declare V/LA, you will be nudged every 72 hours (3 days). Two nudges equals one prod in V/LA. Nudged players will have roughly 24 hours to post game advancing content before they will be nudged once more. If they fail to post game advancing content within roughly 24 hours of the second nudge, they will be replaced.

  • As a rule of thumb, if you are not on V/LA, you should try to post game related content at least once per every 24 hours.

  • Players are allowed to be prodded two separate times before they will be replaced.

  • Don't be afraid to use the V/LA, but don't abuse it either.

Lynch:

  • Players can use the vote tags (e.g. VOTE: AnonymousGhost or bolding (e.g. Vote: AnonymousGhost).

  • Unvoting is not required. Votes in quotes, spoiler tags or otherwise hidden will not be counted. Votes that misspell or have other minor errors will be counted as normal as long as I understand what you are getting at.

  • Be sure to include the colon (if you're not using the vote tags)! I will be using the control+F command to locate your votes!

Setup Information:

  • Epic Duel Wiki Page

  • Day phases are nine days long. Duels have a six day deadline.

  • The White Flag Victory Mechanic is in play.

  • If there is no lynch by the time the clock runs down, the Sharpshooters are given the opportunity to kill any player of their choosing.

  • As mentioned earlier, this game is conditioned as Nightless! Since no Night Phases exists, the Sharpshooters do not have a factional night kill ability. Instead, they are Vengeful and may kill any player of their choosing after being removed from the game if they've either lost a duel or have been lynched.

  • The Sharpshooters are recommended to choose their Vengeance kill target beforehand, but are given a 12 hour window to choose one, following a duel loss or lynch. In a Sharpshooter's absence, their teammates can select target in their teammate's place. If no target is chosen, the Sharpshooters will lose their chance to Vengeance kill a target.

Sample Role PMs:


GunslingerWelcome USERNAME.

You are a Gunslinger! You will win when only one Sharpshooter remains. Please reply to this PM to prove you have confirmed. [url]Here is the link to the discussion thread[/url]. You have no other abilities besides your voice, your vote, and your gun. Best of luck.


SharpshooterWelcome USERNAME.

You are a Sharpshooter! You will win when your faction either equals or outnumbers the Gunslingers and nothing can prevent this from occurring. Please reply to this PM to prove you have confirmed.

[url]Here is the link to the discussion thread[/url] and [url]here is the link to your hangout[/url]. Besides your voice, your vote, your gun, and your hangout, here are your other abilities:

Eye for an Eye [Passive]: You are Vengeful. You may kill any player of your choosing if you either lose a duel or are lynched. Best of luck.

Duels:

  • Plurality lynching mechanics are in play for both the Duels and the Lynches.

  • Once per each Day Phase, a player may challenge another player to a duel by posting Duel: USERNAME. Once you enter into a duel, there is no backing down. A separate countdown (lasting six days long) specifically for the duel will start and the day phase deadline will be paused.

  • In a duel, the duelist with the most votes between the two is killed. Duelists do not have a vote.

  • Once a duel ends, a flip will occur, the normal deadline will resume and the day will continue as normal with the vote counts being reset as the players vote for a lynch.

  • There is a maximum of one duel and one lynch per day. An initiated duel will always supersede the lynch for the day phase.

  • If there is no winning duelist by the time the Duel clock runs out, the Sharpshooters are given the opportunity to kill any player of their choosing.

Game On!

8 out of 10 players have confirmed!

The remaining two players can confirm either by replying to the role PM or posting within the discussion thread, but they must confirm before the 48 hour time limit runs out.

Forgot to add these in! My apologies.

I don't think they'll be necessary, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

9. Do Not Discuss Substitutions, Concessions, Reports, or Infractions During Play - Shameless stolen from another mafia site!

These topics are forbidden to discuss during play, as it may cause people to infer alignment in a manner that has nothing to do with actual game play.

Discussing substitutions or discussing moderation, particularly after a moderator has instructed players not to, will be an infraction.

9a. Substitutions: Noting that a player X has subbed for player Y is fine. Noting when that occurred is fine. Discussing why someone has been subbed out, announcing you will sub out, telling someone to sub out, public speculation as to someone's alignment based on the substitution itself, all forbidden. Think what you will about this person's alignment, at your own risk. But using the substitution as reasoning is disallowed. It's bad for the game.

To be clear, you can talk about the player who was subbed out. You can say that they were subbed out. You can say when they subbed out. You can say why the player that subbed out was scummy based on what they did or didn't do while they were a player. All that's being (not) discussed here is speculation as to why they subbed out. That's all the rule forbids. If you can be careful and stick to the legal stuff, you'll be fine. It's a very limited rule. The word "sub" is not lava, you can touch it. You don't get penalized for saying that a player was subbed in or out.

Just don't discuss why they were subbed out. The "why" is what is ruled out. Think what you will, speculate internally. Just remember, the part that is illegal is "why they subbed out." It's not part of the game.

I mean, really I don't think the duels do anything.

It just makes the game go by faster because it makes it double lynch nightless.

Duel is literally just another lynch as it's the exact same mechanic.
