rules, adapted from nexus's

--most important rule: be nice and don't be mean--

general:
- Please adhere to the site rules.
- Do not discuss this game of mafia outside of this thread.
- Day phases will last 14 days (or until a lynch is achieved).
- Night Phases will last 48 hours maximum. On any given night, if all players PM me that they are okay to speed up the night, it will end sooner.
- During night phase, no talking may be done in the thread.
- Do not quote PM's from the mod at all (real or fabricated). This includes specific timestamps; please ask me if you're uncertain whether something breaks this rule. Paraphrasing is acceptable.
- 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:
- Vote either with vote tags (VOTE: schadd) or with bold (vote: schadd). Note that I didn't include the underscore in my username; you may choose to use a string that will uniquely identify a player to me instead of the exact thing.
- Don't try to confuse me with your votes.
- You may vote No Lynch to Not Lynch.
- 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.

activity:
- You are expected to post at least once every 48 hours. If you haven't posted for 48 hours, I shall prod you. If you do not respond to the prod within 24 hours (either in thread if it's Day, or via PM during the Night) then I will replace you.
- As well, if you require more than three prods, I will force-replace you.
- If you decide to replace out, PLEASE PM me and don't post in thread after doing so - if you want to rescind the replacement BLEASE PM ME AGAIN and dont post in thread until i have been like "ok np"

mechanics:
- Aquamarine, 21B35F is my color. Please don't use it.
- No impossible/hard to read text, or cryptography. For example, I would prefer that no font size smaller than the one you're reading now be used.
- 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 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.

SETUP: HOUSE PARTY

  • 3 mafia goons; 11 vanilla townies; daytalk; 1 nightkill each night
  • during each day, you may vote for some amount of players to be added to the Party. if a mafia goon that isn't in the Party tries to kill someone that is in the Party (or vice versa), they will be publicly outed as a mafia goon come morning.
  • Party voting will occur during the first 7 days of each day phase. if you would like to vote for a certain group of players to be added to the Party, put their names in a single HEAL: tag. for example, if you said HEAL: alice, then HEAL: bob in the next post, i would treat you as voting for only bob to be added to the party. use an empty HEAL: tag to unvote; vote for nobody to be added by saying HEAL: nobody.
  • if a certain group of people receives a majority, then the Party phase ends with that group selected. otherwise, i will choose one of the voted groups randomly at deadline, with extra weight given to groups with multiple votes:
    Spoiler: quadratic weighting
    each group will have a probability of being chosen proportional to the square of its amount of voters.

    {alice, bob, carol} has 4 votes.
    {carol} has 2 votes.
    {alice, bob, mace windu, MC ride} has 2 votes.
    {mace windu} has 1 vote.

    since the first group has 4 votes, it has 42 = 16 points of probability for being chosen.
    the second & third each have 4 points
    the fourth group has 1 point.

    for a total of 25 points. thus, the first group has 16/25 odds of being chosen, the second and third 4/25, and the fourth 1/25.

    if a deadline group choice happens i will walk through this process for it.
  • a lynch cannot occur until the group phase finishes. the lynch will proceed as normal, with the deadline 14 days after the beginning of the group phase.

VT PM:
welcome to open 759! You are a vanilla townie. you have no abilities during night phases but may talk and vote during the day.

you win when all threats to the town are eliminated.

please confirm by telling me what the bolded green text says.


goon PM:
welcome to open 759! you are a mafia goon. you may talk to your partners in [url]here[/url] at any time, and you may also talk and vote during day phases. if you perpetrate a night kill on someone that is in the Party while you aren't (or vice versa), i will post in the main thread that you are mafia.

you win when either mafia control half the vote during a day phase or when all townies are dead, or nothing can prevent one of these scenarios from happening.

please confirm by telling me what the bolded red text says, or by posting in your mafia PT.

I have some thoughts for strategy on this but I will need time to clearly delineate them. Expect this tomorrow. Basically, there are two schools of thought with the party that are optimal if I get the rules correctly.

i think the obvious strat would be to sequester strong townreads/players away to keep them safe

am interested in hearing the other one

Yes. That's the obvious one.

The other is to use the sequestering as an alignment tool.

Keep the groups even and play it like mastermind/minesweeper.

I think that's less optimal w only three mislynches and i think the main problem w mountainous is consensus town and strong players can die too easily so I'd rather go w the protective strat?

hot take: titus/kirari/pp have some slight scum equity for not commenting on my scummy opener

*shrug* Don't care about your opening.

I want to put the details behind each one. We may change mid stream. Ideally, the groups should be as close to even. One is just random.

Mod - if a party is chosen randomly by you, will it be announced in the thread?

Also you should all HEAL: Bob - it's in the rules after all!

Titus, I'm interested in if you can get the minesweeper approach to work. I couldnt. On that basis, I think early on it would be best for us to vote for strong town reads to be sequestered and later on, and especially when there is just one scum left, we can use it like a second lynch, to hopefully force scum to no kill or be outed.

From the left to the right, make noise ♪ ♫

Anyway, TRT, I'm actually gonna disagree with you there - 410's entrance felt more like good-natured joking from town than anything else. What makes it scummy is the way he doubled back and called attention to it in 14.

Skygazer seems to want attention. Talking about mech over reads early is scummy, and saying I'm scummy for not calling her scummy is scummy, but moving from not wanting to talk about mech to immediately talking about mech is. . . maybe townie?

Every choice we make is a gamble. But even so, we still gamble. For we enjoy the risk.

It is I! The great Mary. I know you have all been waiting for my entrance none to fear I'm finally here to help you sheep along the way.

You thought this opening was 'scummy?' as you put it Sky? HA!I've seen much worse in my mafia days. But perhaps you should've waited for a few more people to post before commenting on it. If you were wanting reactions like I assume you were going for that's a bit bland don't ya think.

If we talk about who should go into what party so early it's just annoying noise. So! I say we just ignore it for now and focus on something more interesting like early reads~

I think Sky is town with Schiavetto being scummy~
My life is mine! I won't hand it over to anyone!
