Brought to you by Xalxe and BROseidon. And reviewed by BipolarChemist
Signups for this game end on Wednesday, February 15th at 10pm ET. The game will start Friday, February 17th around 7pm ET.

Please note:

Portions of this game are heavily non-standard. Because of the upfront nature in which these will be presented, we refrain from calling the game bastard. Nevertheless, be aware that the conventions that you are used to will be largely broken.

In addition, the delicate nature of the format does not handle quitters well. While we hope to have replacements lined up should something happen, please note that past activity issues will be heavily considered during the application process


SIGN UP HERE

|GENERAL RULES|

original formatting and rules blatantly stolen from Mewtwo

|01| This is a game. The main objective is to have fun; so no excessive flaming, spamming, or submission of anything else prohibited within the MS forums.
|02| This is a game. The secondary objective is to dominate.
|03| We are not infallible, so if we make a mistake, please point it out to us privately so that we may make corrections as necessary.
|04| We have worked extensively to produce a game that is enjoyed by all involved. As such, we promise to offer each player respect but expect to be shown the same in return.
|05| Do not modify avatars. I have spent a great deal of time creating these images and would much rather concentrate on maintaining a smooth game as opposed to making unnecessary revisions. Do not place images or oversized text in your signature, as it is distracting. When in doubt, ask first.
|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.
|07| Private communication with players outside of your tribe is strictly prohibited unless otherwise stated. Any player found in violation of this rule will be penalized.
|08| I would ask that players refrain from logging in anonymously. This is to help emulate the Survivor experience.
|09| Any and all posting about this game outside the provided forums is illegal unless SPECIFICALLY STATED. Violators will be penalized, as it is threatens the integrity of an anonymous game. Please note that I will be extremely harsh on any sort of out-of-game discussion, even with non-players.
|10| Failure to complete several actions, including but not limited to, voting during Tribal Council, answering required Confessional questions or submitting for a challenge will be punished with a snakebite penalty. If a player gets three snakebites, they will be either replaced or medically evacuated, at the discretion of the mods.
|11| We reserve all rights to implement new rules if needed.

|GAME MECHANICS|

|01| Survivor: MLS is ANONYMOUS. All participants are strictly prohibited from so much as hinting at their own identities or implying another player's MafiaScum identity. Communication outside the private message system is also forbidden until otherwise stated. Failure to follow this rule can result in a variety of consequences ranging from a harsh warning to one's elimination from the game. The moderator reserves the right to determine the severity of possible infractions. This is especially important in this game, as it is the first which could have potential spoilers, so please don't ruin it for everyone.

Immunity Challenges:

|03| A Survivor game is nothing without its standard immunity challenges. Each round will possess an Immunity Challenge.
|04| Winners of Immunity Challenges will be safe from elimination that round and cannot be voted out in Tribal Councils.
|05| I appreciate the fact that prospective contestants will enter this game with a range of skills. With this in mind, understand that I as the moderator cannot cater to all players' needs and time constraints in challenges. All challenges have been decided before the game.
|06| The outcomes of all Immunity Challenges are final. That said, be sure to keep Rule 03 of General Rules in mind.

Tribal Council:

|07| Tribal Councils will last twenty-four hours from the moment we notify relevant parties. If a player fails to submit a vote within the given time frame, he or she will vote randomly and accumulate a snakebite penalty. In the event that a player knows he or she will be unable to vote by deadline, that player may notify us and cast a conditional vote to avoid penalization.
|08| The results of Tribal Councils may be posted before deadline if and only if all persons involved have submitted a vote and all players agree to end TC early.
|09| The modification of votes after they have been submitted is permitted up until TC ends. If you wish to change your vote, please do so in a new post. Edited posts are likely to get overlooked by the mods
|10| The outcomes of Tribal Councils are final.
|11| Questions concerning ties in Tribal Council may be found below:

|I| In the event of an initial tie, a revote shall take place. Contestants may only vote for one of the tied players, and all tied individuals may not vote.
|II| If a majority is not met in the revote, the following methods (in the given order) will be implemented to determine which player is eliminated:
  1. If the game has not reached the Final 6 or there are more than 2 players remaining on a tribe, all players not locked in the tie or immune will draw rocks. The player who receives a black rock will be eliminated.
  2. If the game has reached the Final 6 or two players remain on a tribe, a tie-breaker challenge will take place between tied parties. This will be explained in greater detail should a tie occur at this stage in the game.

Yeah this isn't actually true.

As much as I'd like to think my team mates being garbage is this, sometimes.

There's a long post to be had about lessons learned after the pre-merge but they largely boil down to:

1) Don't do daily ~the same challenge~ and have it be meaningful.

2) Don't expect people to be good or reasonable decent at new things. It was balanced around people being far better at it than ended up being true.

Oh yeah I think from now on I'm going to ID players as people "in the style of" X in order to get around ID issues. For example:

"This is a player in the style of Kilby."

I should say it's not so much to get around as much as to emphasize that the categorization is based on perceived playstyle over who the person actually is, which is the thing that matters.

Learning how to communicate effectively in a way that isn't writing novels is generally a useful skill.

In post 158, CuddlyCaucasian wrote:He knew he already had those 4 votes and played well not to lose them, but Amumu being a fucko and casting the only vote for Garen played a huge part there


Basically this.

Shaco's speech was amazing because it was in line with his character and put him in a position to secure Malphite's vote during questioning. Most of the time and for most players, that's not a good speech, but understanding context is important.

Which is honestly something most MS finalists suck at as they write novels that nobody wants to read.
