You awaken to the hustle and bustle of your home town’s daily activity. Little did you know that the peaceful quiet of your normal, everyday life would come crashing down today. It seems that one of your fellow citizens has angered the Mob, and has paid for it with his life! What are you going to do? Why, you’re going to get your peaceful, little town back, that’s what…

Your job, fair citizens of the town’s Ruling Council, is to discover who among you belong to the Mafia and summarily lynch them. Two of your fellow Council members are working for the Mafia - find them before they take over the Council and the town!

Rules

The Golden Rule

1. While it is understandable that on occasion tempers may flare, please remeber that this is a game. Please have fun, be respectful of your fellow players and try not to take anything personally.

General Game Play and Etiquette

2. Please remember that when you signed up for this game you made a commitment. Be courteous to your mod and your fellow players and let us know when you are leaving for an extended period of time. If you can't commit, it's OKAY to ASK to be replaced, but please don't make me hunt you down!

3. Please try to maintain more than the minimum standard for activity levels which is currently 1 post every 48 hours. If you go 48 hours without posting you will be prodded (as many times as necessary) and if you go 72 hours without posting you will be replaced. Exceptions will be made for low activity periods such as weekends and holidays.

4. Do not quote your role PMs or any private communication with the moderator in any way.

5. There is to be NO personal communication outside of the forum postings unless your role PM specifically allows it.

6. Do not talk about this or any other ongoing games on MS outside of their respective game threads for any reason unless your role PMs specifically allow you to do so.

7. I am fallible. While I strive not to make mistakes, they do occasionally happen. Please politely correct me if you spot one.

8. Once the game is over I will post links to the QT thread. If you have an issue with this please let me know in advance.

9. Blue is my color. Please don't use it.

Voting and Lynching and Deadlines

10. Votes must take the form of Vote: Player and similarly Unvote. It isn't necessary to Unvote every time but it would be appreciated by your mod and your fellow players for clarity's sake.

11. If you need to grab my attention for any reason please throw an @Mod: statement in your post.

12. This game will be run with fixed 3 week deadlines for days. Night-time deadlines will always be 72 hours.

13. In the event a lynch consensus is not reached by deadline, the player with the most votes will be lynched. In the event of a tie, the player which reached the most votes first will be lynched.

14. One daytime deadline extension of up to one week may be granted at the moderator's discretion in extreme circumstances and only if activity levels aren't impairing game progress.

15. If you have a role with a Night action your choices are due to me by the posted deadline. If I do not receive your choice via PM by the posted deadline you will forfeit your actions.

16. Any player with a Night action may instead submit a “No Action” PM to let the Mod know that you do not want to perform your expected action that Night phase.

17. Whenever a player has reached a simple majority of votes he/she will be considered lynched and the game will roll over into twilight phase. Twilight will last until I post a death scene and lock the topic

18. During twilight you may talk amongst yourselves; however, no further Vote or Unvote statements will be counted. Once the hammer has dropped, it cannot be undone, so vote wisely.

19. When you are killed you are allowed 1 post which may contain no other characters, letters, words or phrases besides "Bah" and/or "Go Town." Please refrain from doing even this unless absolutely necessary.

Helpful Links:


    This game uses the F11 Setup. It consists of four variations, chosen at random:

  • 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Roleblocker, 1 Sane Cop, 1 Doctor, 5 Townies.
  • 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Roleblocker, 7 Townies.
  • 2 Mafia Goons, 1 Sane Cop, 6 Townies.
  • 2 Mafia Goons, 1 Doctor, 6 Townies.


Sample Role PMs

The Mafia Roleblocker wrote:You are a Mafia Roleblocker, along with your partner _________ (who is simply a Goon). Your goal is to eliminate the pro-town players so that only your side remains; you win if this happens. During the Day, try to blend in with the rest of the players, and get someone lynched.

You may talk with your partner at Night, and send me a choice via PM of who you would like to kill/roleblock (your team can do both if both of you live; if only you survive, you must choose one action or the other).

Note: You may talk with your partner privately during confirmations to plan strategy, but no night actions will take place until Night One. For your convenience I have set up the following Quick Topic Thread which you may optionally use to communicate at night with your partner


The Mafia Goon wrote:You are a Mafia Goon, along with your partner _________ Your goal is to eliminate the pro-town players so that only your side remains; you win if this happens. During the Day, try to blend in with the rest of the players, and get someone lynched.

You may talk with your partner at Night, and send me a choice via PM of who you would like to kill.

Note: You may talk with your partner privately during confirmations to plan strategy, but no night actions will take place until Night One. For your convenience I have set up the following Quick Topic Thread which you may optionally use to communicate at night with your partner


The Doctor wrote:You are the Doctor, and you can protect people from harm. Each Night, you may send me a choice via PM of who to protect; if they come under attack by the Mafia, they will live. You win if the scum are eliminated, so choose wisely at Night, and try to lynch correctly during the Day.

Note: Doctors are 100% effective in Newbie Games (the person they protect will never die on the night they are protected). You may not protect yourself.


The Cop wrote:You are the Cop, and you can tell good from bad. Each Night, you may send a player's name to me; I will let you know if your investigation shows that they are Mafia or Town. You win if the scum are eliminated, so choose wisely at Night, and lynch well during the Day.

Note: Cops always get a correct result in Newbie Games (no sanity issues). You cannot investigate yourself.


Vanilla Townie wrote:You are a Townie, and you've got no special powers at Night. No investigations, no protection, no gun to shoot people. Your only powers are the ability to post, vote, and think. Help lynch Mafia during the Day, and you will win the game, along with the rest of the Town.

To everybody else: READ THE RULES. Even if you think you know them, some rules differ from mod to mod.

I'm basically an IC filling an SE slot just so you know.

Also, I'm concerned about rule 19 as it disallows things like "Bah, go Scum","Bah, go Cult", "Bah, go fish", and "Bah, bah black sheep".

You should probably follow the advice at the end of rule 19 then.

Still a good reason for voting you for attempting to bandwagon though, clearly :D

It's not a very good joke, Y. It doesn't make any sense for you to say that an IC in and SE slot is scum.

Is editing banned? I just noticed the lack of edit buttons. Makes a lot of sense actually. Can I edit a post immediately after I make it?

No. You can only edit your posts in non-Mafia game forums (Mish Mash, Mafia/General Discussion etc.).

Hit the preview button before posting; that's best.

Your style is to post then be accused of scum tells and immediately remove them? You crafty bugger...

Actually this is my first forum game ever, I usually play on muds/IRC where editing posts is a completely moot point.

'Posts' also have less content.

The best thing to do is to press the "Preview" button and read the post. Then edit and preview again until you like what you see.
It also helps you making sure the BBCode is right (People usually mess up quotes), and you can see posts sent after you started writing.
