ANNOUNCEMENT:

There will be 15 teams in the event.
This means that 6 slots will be available on the 18th.
A reminder that the sign up thread will reopen at 1/18/2018 at 12:00 pm (Noon) EST.

There will be five 15-player games, and one player from each team will play each game.
Teams will be able to choose who plays in what game after they recieve all 5 role PM's.
All games have exactly 12 town aligned players and 3 mafia aligned players. All scumteams will have daytalk.

OUR GAMES AND MODS:

Open (Mod: Mathblade) - 15-player White Flag.

Closed (Mod: mhsmith0) - Closed 15-player game with normal roles.

Closed (Mod: Ether) - Closed 15-player game with normal roles.

Invention Mafia (Mod: beeboy)- A closed 15 player game with a public mechanic where each day, players can vote for someone to receive an invention that can used the following night. Inventions will be public. Powers outside of inventions will be limited.

Magical Stories (Mod: Alisae): Mechanic/Role heavy Fairy Tale themed 15 player game. Scumteam will be able to choose who gets what role after formation.

Many thanks to Jingle, fferyllt, FakeGod, and zoraster for looking over the setups and for their general advice.
In zor's case, an extra thank you for letting us run this event and for having run it all years past!

RULESET

A preliminary version of the Team Mafia ruleset was edited into the first post and is reproduced below. Please private message me any questions or concerns you may have about the rules or anything else concerning the event. The ruleset will also be posted in all team PT's. Please make sure everything is clear to you and your team.

Spoiler:
Team Communication

1. Each team will be provided a Private Topic (PT).
2. Each team will also be provided a Discord Channel (DC), upon request.
3. Players may copy and paste whatever they want into their PT/DC. They may not copy and paste text OUT of their PT/DC into game threads.
4. Players may continue to communicate with their team after in-game death.
5. There are no restrictions for what players can post in their PT/DC's outside of not breaking site rules.
6. We'd prefer if teams used the provided means of communication. If your team really wants/needs to user another, contact me (Ellibereth) and we'll figure it out.
7. There will be a universal dead PT. A team will only get the option to join after all of their players have won or are dead.

Talking About Other Games

1. There are no restrictions for what players can post in their PT/DC's outside of not breaking site rules. The rules for this section refer to what players can talk about in their ongoing games and ongoing game PT's.
2. Players are only allowed to talk about mod-confirmed things from other ongoing Team Mafia games.
3. Any public speculation about other ongoing games is prohibited.
4. Any attempt to publically signal players from other ongoing games is prohibited.
5. Do not try to loophole these rules. If anyone has questions at any point about what is allowed or not allowed please message me (Ellibereth).
6. Examples of things NOT allowed: Calling a player in another game scummy. Saying a wagon in another game was bad. Talking about a claim in another game. Mentioning that players in another game should have lynched someone else.
7. Example of things that ARE allowed: Stating who is on what team. Stating what Day or Night another game is in. Stating how many players are left alive on a team. Stating how many town or scum are alive in another game. Stating whether a dead player in another game has flipped town or scum.
8. You MAY talk about the preferences and abilities of any player and speculate which game and alignment they would prefer. You may speculate about the relative strengths of teams and how they would distribute role pms. You may NOT tie this speculation or otherwise refer to ANY action a player not in your game has taken in their ongoing game. A good rule of thumb is any speculation one could have made just by seeing team compositions before the event is allowed.
9. Example of things that ARE allowed: "Ellibereth sucks at scum, he probably chose a town pm" or "Zoraster is by far the best scum player on that team. If they got a scum role pm he probably took it."
10. Example of things NOT allowed: "Ellibereth is confirmed scum by team composition", when said by someone not in Ellibereth's game. "Ellibereth's probably going to flip scum in that other game so Zoraster is probably town here".
11. To repeat: If you have any doubt about whether something is against the rules or not, pm your mod and me, and ask.

Your Teammates are Always Innocent Until Proven Guilty

1. You may at no time say, indicate, insinuate, etc. that your Team Mafia teammates are or might be anything other than town. This includes in any hypothetical situation.
2. Exception: You may talk about your teammates being scum if they have flipped scum in another game (i.e. are dead).
3. If a player is NOT on your team and is still alive in another game, you must follow the rules in the Talking About Other Games thread.

Replacements

1. It is your job to replace team members who are not active. If you require assistance from the moderator or any event organizer, there will be a tiebreak penalty.
2. To replace a team member, you must PM Ellibereth AND the moderator of your subgame.
3. You may replace with anyone who is not currently on a Team Mafia team, not part of the Team Mafia Organizer team (Moderators, Balance-checkers, players in tiebreak game). However, only 5 people may be involved in the PT at any time. A replaced team member may not participate in any way unless he is replaced back in.
4. A dead player may still be replaced so long as the team follows 3.
5. The mod will force replace any player who has not posted within 3 days (Prodded after 2, no response for 1 more) of his last post (not including Night). This will come at a penalty to the team.
6. Please try to avoid replacements if possible.

Hey, if anyone is in a pair, PM me! In a team of three so far with notscience, Alchemist21 and I. Thought notsci was finding people but he hadn't posted the last few days or got my pm so I figured it's worth taking into my own hands to make sure the team gets in.

Of course, notsci might have already messaged people to ask so if you're one of those please forward that to me if you're still interested - you will take priority over others for obvious reasons.

I mean if notsci returns before the deadline then this is moot as well I just want a backup in case he doesn't.

I'm unclear on how I sign up for this (the signup thread is locked????) but I see that 1)signups are mere hours from finishing and 2)there may be one or more teams that still need a person, so if you are on a team that still needs someone let me know and I'll join

you can sign up as a willing replacement in the sign up thread. Teams are responsible for their own replacements so putting your name down is a good first step and then maybe following the games and reaching out to the teams if they need a replacement.

This seemed like it got handed off really fast and went into signups pretty rapidly. Or maybe it's just that I'm just too slow and not reactive enough?
