Welcome to Survivor: Medevac Island! An anonymous 18 player game to be held on an offsite forum, this won't be your typical Mafiascum Survivor game. Medevac Island is guaranteed to be a game-changer with its unique stamina system. For the first time players will begin the game on the same level, and no one player will begin with an advantage. Rather than rely on challenge prowess players must now manage stamina for challenges, tasks, and game decisions. However, stamina is also each player's lifeline. If a player ever loses all stamina the Survivor medical team will be forced to medically evacuate (medevac) the player completely out of the game. That's right, players may legitimately be removed from the island from playing too fast, too hard (no puns intended)!

This game will feature camp tasks simulating life on the island. Building a shelter, tending the fire, gathering food, and fetching drinking water will have a large impact on game play and stamina usage. Will you choose to save all your stamina for the challenges or will you focus on ensuring you have a roof over your head? Do you try to go it alone gathering coconuts to replenish stamina or do you choose to stay by the fire near your allies to braid each other's hair? Every decision you make in this game could have a long-lasting effect. In this game, challenges may be the least of your worries; dehydration and hunger will face you every day.

Do you have what it takes to last longer than Mark the Chicken?

Apply Here!

Applications will be open for one week. Acceptance PMs will be sent on the morning of Friday, October 14th.

Spoiler: Rules of the Game
[01] This is a game. Have fun! This game utilizes an experimental design which has not been implemented yet in Mafia Scum social game queue. As such, most game design elements will be new to players. These include replacing usual challenges for a long-term numerical system, inclusion of tasks which affect your standing in the game, and inability to PM during specific time periods. As such, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you do not sign up if you feel that you would not enjoy this game and have difficulty adjusting to new elements.

[02] Joining this game implies that you will try your hardest, be active, and be respectful to be mods, players, medical crew, and spectators. Drs. Joe and Ramona do not want to have to pull anyone from the game due to medical reasons. As such, play to win! Follow all boilerplate rules for the Mafia Scum forums. Don't forget that Mish Mash mods are watching this game. Anything that applies there also applies to this game.

[03] PM's are only to be used for communication within your tribe WHEN ALLOWED. No private communication is allowed during Task Days. Global notification will be given when private communication is not allowed. When private communication is allowed, all out-of-tribe contact is to be confined to challenge threads and general discussion. Do not use any other communication methods throughout the game. Do not forward or screenshot any PMs or mod posts.

[04] This game is ANONYMOUS. All participants are strictly prohibited from so much as hinting to their own identities or implying another player's MafiaScum identity. Communication outside the private message system is also forbidden unless otherwise stated. This also includes communicating with someone you know to be spectating. Failure to follow this rule can result in a variety of consequences ranging from a terse warning to one's elimination from the game. We reserve the right to determine the severity of possible infractions. Do not modify avatars, birthdays, or other profile elements as this may also affect implications of your anonymous identity.

[05] The mods' decision is final. However, if you notice something that feels off or dissonant with the rules, please point it out to a mod privately and we will correct if needed. Due to the complexity and novelty of the game mechanisms, it is expected that there will be confusion about some expectations and rules. It is highly encouraged that players privately ask a mod for assistance as much as needed prior to making game decisions. Moderator contact information has been provided to assist you.

[06] Exercise common sense. If you are unsure as to whether an action conflicts with the rules, ask. Yes, this is a competition, but do not attempt to undermine challenges or game mechanics for your own gain. This violates both the spirit of the game and common respect mentioned above. If you choose to take an action which is determined to be against the rules and you have not asked a mod prior to taking such action, mod understanding will be limited.

[07] Posting or linking to any form of NSFW content may result in modkill, replacement, or even blacklisting from all future games. If you think something is borderline or questionable, it's probably banned.

[08] We reserve all rights to modify or implement new rules as needed. If you feel that a rule or game mechanic has been unfair, please bring your concern to a mod first.

Game Mechanics:

Task Day
It takes a lot to keep a camp functioning and a tribe in good health. In addition to competing in challenges and attending tribal councils, you will spend some days with your tribe performing the necessary tasks to sustain life on the island. On Task Day PMing is always turned OFF. You will be able to communicate in a marked thread with any tribemates performing the same task.
Fire -> You spend the day in the shelter tending the fire. It must be stoked according to a schedule based on the quality of your shelter. The fire must be going to boil water for consumption and to cook fish.
Water -> You trek to the water well to collect a jug of water. Each jug can slake the thirst of three people, and those who don't get water before a challenge will be dehydrated.
Gather -> Taking the boat out to fish requires 2 or 3 people, or one can always gather coconuts from the jungle. Gathered food is the most straightforward way to replenish stamina.

There is one additional task available to you, though performing it leaves you isolated for the duration of the Task Day.

Hunt -> You search the jungle for the ever elusive Hidden Immunity Idol. Any time you choose the Hunt task you must make a nonrefundable stamina bid. There is no way of knowing how many others might be searching at the same time. The highest bidder will receive an idol token. To claim the power of the Hidden Immunity Idol you must win two tokens in a row. Be warned that going on the Hunt task and failing to win the bid will cause you to forfeit any idol token you already have.

Stamina and Challenges: Players each start with 1000 stamina at the beginning of the game. Stamina cannot be transferred between players at any time. Unless otherwise stated, any stamina used during the game will be consumed and cannot be refunded.
Small amounts of stamina can be regained through various ways in this game
Earned via Immunity/Reward Challenge feasts, auctions or reward items
Earned via Task Day tasks

Stamina can be used through various ways in this game. Stamina cannot be spent during a Tribal Council vote except during a tie vote.
Spent during Immunity/Reward Challenges and Auctions
Spent during Shelter/Gather tasks
Spent during Tribal Council tie-votes

Med-evacs
If a player ever reaches 0 stamina, s/he will be disqualified from the entire game via “medical evacuation (med-evac)”. If a player has been removed via med-evac, the tribal council for that episode may be cancelled in its stead. Players who intentionally med-evac by their own volition will lose their standing in the game and will be considered as DQ rather than their natural placement in the game. If a player was in the jury phase and chose to complete an intentional med-evac out of the game, that player will forfeit his/her place in the jury as a result.


Tribal Council Tie Break Procedures:

If a Tribal Council ends in a tie vote, all players whom have received the most votes (which was subsequently tied) will NOT be sent back to the voting booth. All other players will participate in the re-vote. Each of the remaining players at the tribal council aside from the players who received the most votes (which was subsequently tied) will re-vote for one of the players who received the most votes AND will also submit how much stamina (minimum: 1 stamina) s/he would like to spend along with his/her vote.
The player who receives the most votes will be voted out. All stamina spent will also be consumed. If a tie remains in the re-vote, then stamina spent will be counted and the person for whom the most stamina was spent will be voted out. If a tie remains in stamina total spent, all stamina will be consumed and this step will be continue until the tie is unbroken OR a voter ends at 0 stamina. If a voter during a tiebreak ends at 0 stamina, this player (and any others at 0 stamina will be “med-evaced” and the tribal council will end without any further eliminations.

In addition to the main cast we will be casting replacements! Replacements will be sidelined for the first five days of the game but if after the waiting period is over their services are not needed they will gain spectator access and a reserved place in the mods' behind the scenes Fantasy Survivor league. If serving as a replacement is of particular interest to you please contact one of the mods!

18 contestants are on their way to the most dangerous locale ever visited by Mafiascum Survivor - Medevac Island!

Traveling by speedboat, truck and helicopter these players will have a short while to get to know each other before they hit the beach for their first challenge. Over the coming weeks they'll battle each other and the elements, seeking to claim the title of Sole Survivor.

For the first time our challengers will manage their stamina, making decisions based not just on short term needs and desires but also long term endurance and strategy. Tasks and challenges will be draining, but many opportunities exist to earn valuable supplies and rewards to improve camp and maintain health. Those that master the ebb and flow of island life may outlast the competition, but for those who can't a singular fate awaits - medical evacuation.

In addition, a round of applause is due to our able-bodied replacements who will step in if anyone opts out or disappears in the first few days. Thank you replacements!

Congratulations to our cast, and thank you to all who applied!

The new Clement Tribe will call Delta Beach home.

Three more castaways have joined the ranks of the fallen.
ImageImageImage

The remaining ten players have merged at Gamma Beach to become the Penner Tribe!
ImageImageImageImageImage
ImageImageImageImageImage

It is now an individual game, and the decision making will only get harder. How will these castaways manage their stamina? How will they share the fruits of their labor and the rewards they earn? What twists and turns still await them? It is not too late to become a spectator and watch the rest of the action on Survivor: Medevac Island!

The first elimination of the merge became the last pre-juror.

And six more found their way to the jury bench.
ImageImageImage
ImageImageImage

Only three players remain, still fighting for the title of Sole Survivor!
ImageImageImage

Nothing but the final immunity challenge remains between our castaways and the end of the game. Who will be the final juror, and who will claim the ultimate title? Become a spectator to see what happens and don't miss the LIVE FINALE of Survivor: Medevac Island!
