General Game Rules


Game Mechanics
1.) Votes must be bolded and in a form similar to Vote: Playername. If I do not see your vote, it will not count. Unvotes are nice but not required.
2.) Lynches require a majority of votes (50% of the active players +1). If a 50% + 1 majority is not reached by deadline the person with the most number of votes at deadline will be lynched. If there is a tie for most number of votes, the person who received the tie vote first will be lynched. See game specific rules.
3.) No Lynches require only 50% of the vote to occur. See game specific rules.
4.) If a lynch occurs, the game enters twilight and players may continue to talk in thread until it is locked and a death scene is posted. No votes/unvotes will count in twilight.
5.) Dead players cannot talk. Once you are killed/lynched. Do not post in thread. Not even a "bah!" post.

Deadlines/Activity
6.) Each day will last up to 3n days where n is the number of players currently living.
7.) Players may request one deadline extension of one week during the game.
8.) Treat this game as a commitment. If you are going to be V/LA please post in thread or send me a PM. I do not check the V/LA thread.
9.) Players must post every 72 hours (unless they have noted V/LA) or they will be prodded. Weekend days count as 12 hours each. Three total prods during the game will result in a replacement. Players may request prods of other players at anytime but if the 72 hours has not passed since their last post the prod will not count toward the three prods. I will use my discretion when sending these types of prods (I won't be your personal spam-bot).
10.) If a player fails to pick up their prod within 72 hours they will be replaced.
11.) Each night will last approximately 72 hours, during which time all night actions must be submitted via PM.

General
12.) Have fun and be respectful to your fellow players.
13.) Do not speak about this game outside of the thread unless your role specifies that you may do so.
14.) Do not quote anything from the moderator that is said outside of this thread (including role PMs) or pretend to quote anything from the moderator. Paraphrasing is allowed but if you are questioning your paraphrase, run it by me first.
15.) If I make a mistake, please address your grievance in bold in thread or in PM. Please point out vote count errors in thread only.
16.) Do not edit posts. Do not use invisible text. Do not use small text.
17.) Dark Blue Is my color. Do not use it.

Game Specific Rules


DEX-1.) During the day, placing a vote on a player is an indication that you wish for that player to be arrested. Deaths occur at night.
DEX-2.)Upon death or arrest, only character name and alignment will be revealed.
DEX-3) Vote counts will list the names of players voting for a particular player. A pre-determined condition for "arrest" has been decided upon. Because of this, votes should be placed with care. You have been warned.
DEX-4)Knowledge of the show is not required but it will make the game more interesting. Dexter is an awesome show...watch it.
DEX-5)All members of the town received a role with this format

Ability key: (A) = active, (P) = passive, (R) = restriction, (O) = other, (V) = vote

Win Condition: You win when the streets of Miami are safe.

There's something strange and disarming about looking at a homicide scene in the daylight of Miami. It makes the most grotesque killings look staged like you are in a new and daring section of Disney World. Dahmer land.


Masouka: Saw your sister....damn...looking hot.

Dexter: She should, it's hot as hell out here.

Masouka: So, why are you here.

Dexter: It's a crime scene.

Masouka: Yeah...you're the blood spatter guy.

Dexter: So?

Masouka: There's no blood here.

Dexter: What was that?...

Image


No blood, no sticky hot messy awful blood. No blood at all. Why hadn't I thought of that? No blood. What a beautiful idea. I've never seen such clean, dry, and neat looking flesh. Wonderful!

How short exactly?

Also I am not the kind of person to take such a gambit. (meta-ish but true). Not much I can do to change your mind.

A miller claim? Urg. I can think of one or two characters that might fit that role, so I dunno about going for the throat. Certainly not so early in Day 1 when we don't know how the voting system works.

Charter: can you not tell us specifically what your restriction is?

Budja: do you have a previous game where you were a miller?

No RVS bandwagons here, please. For anyone who hasn't seen it, read rule DEX-3.

Do you have any abilities besides being a miller? If you do and it makes you a tasty target for the mafia at least we get this miller nonsence out of the way.

I think we are probably ok as long as we don't push anyone up to a near lynch unless we actually want a lynch.

I'm referring to the vote count, I swear there was no names listed as I was making that post...or that I am insane and possibly could have missed that entirely.

I dont really think role fishing applys to millers, in fact I'd be pretty happy if your role was good enough to put a target on you head despite the fact that you are a claimed miller. Short of that though I don't think you are going to die at night so I'd like the info to help me figure out your alignment.

Well I think role-fishing applies to everyone.
By claiming miller, the only real difference in my role that affects you is that I cannot be cop investigated. How many people's alignments do you discover that way? One or two a game.
If you want to figure out my alignment, scum-hunt in the usual way and don't rely on me giving you role-based information. I'm not saying anything.

Explain to me why role fishing is bad? In my opinion its bad because either A a power role is outed and killed, or B a vanilla is outed and the mafia can focus elsewhere in their hunt for power.

Now given your claim I see the following possibilities:

Mafia: No harm to town in you being forced to claim early.

Vanilla: Given that you are a claimed miller its unlikely you were getting nked anyway so it doesn't narrow anything.

A power role who's abilities don't out weigh being a miller: Harms only done if they have a roleblocker.

A power role who's abilities out weigh being a miller: At least we get a miller out of the way.

True
Vanilla: Given that you are a claimed miller its unlikely you were getting nked anyway so it doesn't narrow anything.
Narrows down PRs for scum, even if they were not going to NK me anyway = bad
A power role who's abilities don't out weigh being a miller: Harms only done if they have a roleblocker.
Gives unnecessary info to scum and doesn't help town much = bad
A power role who's abilities out weigh being a miller: At least we get a miller out of the way.
Town loses an asset = v. bad

(Bolded mine)

A more important question is what advantage would you get out of further role information (if any)?

I doubt if it would really give you a better guess at my alignment. Why would it.
All it would do is confirm to mafia if I had any other powers and the mafia could then assess my threat accordingly.
I prefer to leave the uncertainty in place.

Mildly bad at most and dependent on them having a roleblocker like role. I think this info would help the town more than the scum.

A power role who's abilities don't out weigh being a miller:Gives unnecessary info to scum and doesn't help town much = bad
I will give you that this case is likely more positive for the mafia than the town.

A power role who's abilities out weigh being a miller: Town loses an asset = v. Bad
Millers are very weak, I doubt your role is so powerful that you are much stronger than a vanilla. At the end of the day I'd still be happy the claimed miller was dead so I didn't have to deal with it in end game.
