M A S Q U E R A D E



Image
http://cashrevelations.com/


As the vermillion sun descended, casting its warm rays across the water, the torches scattered across the palatial gardens shone brighter with their chill blaze. Guests trickled in through the tall gates and flowed off of grand yachts, swelling the number of revelers steadily. Variegated masks reflected the shifting light with myriad colors: gold, silver, red, blue, green, purple. The partygoers enjoyed the feast and the music, but had come mainly for each other and for that mystique that only the splendor and decadence of a masquerade can provide. Of course, this paradox characterizes all masquerades: they are, of course, social functions, but ones that occur, when executed to their full and intended extent, under a veneer of anonymity. The guests, being rather serious about their social engagements, embraced this aspect completely and indeed took full advantage of it, fulfilling the cynical maxim that when no one knows who you are, all your moral strictures collapse into oblivion.

Anonymity proved to be especially important this evening. The Magistrate had planned the social occasion as a celebration of the tenth anniversary of his magistracy, and he invited the entire haut monde of his port city. Although the Magistrate's rule had ushered in a period of financial prosperity that in turn funded lavish fêtes like his own, it came with a cost: the aristocracy that ruled in the environs of the city had been subjugated and disenfranchised, and the Magistrate's religious intolerance (worsened by his relative ignorance of philosophy and his overvaluation of material wealth) had alienated some of the local practitioners of the more institutionalized religions. All in all, the political situation was such that the Magistrate's ball, the most anticipated social event in memory, had a guest list that included both the Magistrate's sycophants and his most bitter yet hidden enemies. Of course, these guests more often than not engaged in deadly intrigue toward each other when they were not co-conspiring against their mutual enemy, the Magistrate. It was hardly a surprise, then, when a figure in a bauta mask -- resplendent with its gold inlay, but, in the shadows of the torches, reminiscent of a skull with its black finish -- collapsed, shrieking. The crowd surged toward the figure, now motionless on the ground. A puddle that shone redder than the sun in the firelight grew from the figure's side. When the mask was ripped off, the Magistrate's immobile face stared in fear and horror at his guests. Some felt perverse delight, others grim satisfaction, still others disgust and even sadness. It did not take long, however, for an oppressive shroud of fear to descend over the crowd as they realized that this death would not be the masquerade's last.

General Rules
Spoiler:
  • All site-wide rules apply.
  • The following ruleset is non-exhaustive and I reserve the right to change it as needed.
  • If you want me to read it, please bold it (requests, clarifications, etc.).
  • Better to be safe than sorry – ask me if you have any questions.


Ethics and Behavior Rules
Spoiler:
  • No out-of-thread communication with other players in the game is allowed unless specified by a role.
  • Any use of information not publicly available (e.g. night action PMs accidentally sent to you) is strictly forbidden. If you have come upon such information for any reason, notify me immediately and cease to post, and I will be happy to replace you without prejudice.
  • Be respectful. Please PM me if you have a problem with the conduct or posting of another player -- do not create drama in-thread.
  • Play to win.


Posting Rules
Spoiler:
  • This is my mod color. Please do not use it.
  • Once your death has been acknowledged by me in-thread, you may not post in-thread until after the game is over.
  • No forms of verifiable randomness are allowed, including screenshots of other websites (e.g. random.org).
  • No encrypted or invisible text is allowed, including anything that approaches those or relies on knowledge not publicly available.
  • Screenshots of and links to QTs or Private Threads used for the game are not allowed. You also may not quote from them. Paraphrasing in a general fashion is fine. PM me if you are unsure about whether something is allowed under this rule.


Voting and Lynch Rules
Spoiler:
  • Votes must be bolded or put in VOTE: tags. Unbolded votes will never be counted. Abbreviations and typos will be counted at the mod’s discretion, but do not test me.
  • Unvoting (Unvote or UNVOTE: , or with the name of the player currently voted specified in either of the two previous formats) is helpful but not necessary.
  • Once a majority of votes on a player is reached during the day, a lynch occurs.
  • You may also vote to No Lynch. If a majority votes for a No Lynch, the day will end without a lynch.
  • If there is no majority at deadline, a No Lynch occurs.
  • Twilight begins once a majority is reached or after the deadline expires. Votes after the lynch vote or deadline will not be counted, although players who are alive (including the player just lynched) may still post in-thread. Twilight will end as soon as I am able to close the thread, and therefore Twilight length is variable.


Deadline and Activity Rules
Spoiler:
  • Day deadlines will be equal to the number of living players or two weeks, whichever is greater. Night deadlines will be approximately 72 hours; consider this when going V/LA. Deadlines will be included in the VCs, although changes to deadlines partway through the day/night render earlier deadlines obsolete.
  • You must post at least once every 48 hours, unless you have stated you are V/LA. If you do not, you will receive a prod. I reserve the right to do anything to you if you need to be prodded more than once, and players will either be replaced or modkilled instead of being prodded a third time. Prod dodges may as well not exist.
  • If I cannot find a replacement in a suitable amount of time, I will have to consider a modkill.
  • If you must go on V/LA for an amount of time I consider detrimental to the game, I may replace you.


Day/Night Action Rules
Spoiler:
  • Actions must be submitted by PM/QT/PT before the deadline, even if I am not online at deadline.
  • No submitted night action means no night action. The exception is with compulsive roles, which will have a randomly determined target if no night action is submitted.
  • You may change your night action and/or target at any point up to deadline. It is therefore in your interest to get an order in early if you are indecisive or are worried about missing the deadline.
  • You may submit your night actions by QT or PT, as applicable. If you do so, you must bold them and make it clear who is performing each action. If there is any ambiguity, I will not attempt to resolve it and will instead ignore the order.

  • I do not follow Natural Action Resolution exactly. Specifically, all actions of identical type are simultaneous. This is straightforward for kills (two players shooting each other would both die), but may differ from what you are used to in the case of Roleblocks especially. Two Roleblockers blocking each other both perform their Roleblocks; a Roleblocker blocking a Roleblocker blocking a Doctor would result in both Roleblocks succeeding (and the Doctor being unable to protect). The blocked Roleblocker would also be unable to perform any subsequent night actions (e.g. using an invention, etc.). Jailkeepers block and protect simultaneously and are Roleblocker type in the NAR. Similar reasoning applies to other applicable roles. Otherwise, you may assume that NAR and the breakdown order apply. PM me if you have questions about this.

  • Day and Twilight actions must be executed in the manner specified in your Role PM. If posted in-thread Day and Twilight actions must be bolded.

  • There is at most one Serial Killer.
  • There are no Cults or any other alignment-changing roles in the game.
  • There are no Lynchers, Jesters, or Survivors in the game.
  • I have not lied to you, nor are your role PMs misleading in any way (e.g. Death Miller, Blank Vig, Quack Doctor, Insane Cop, etc.)

Full Normal setup info can be found here.

There is at least one Vanilla Townie, who will receive the following Role PM:

You are a Vanilla Townie.

Abilities
  • During the Night, you may sleep.
  • During the Day, you may vote for whomever you want lynched.

Win Condition
You win when all non-town factions have been eliminated and at least one Town-aligned player is still alive, or nothing can prevent the same.
