Once upon a time, there was a spaceship isolated little town. This town lived in peace until GIGANT ROBOTS Mafia invaded the town. Unfortunately, all of you have swords and guns and bows (all broken, of course) amnesia, so you can't remember who is town and who is Mafia. So what will you do now? Make a plan!

But what plan? ...what's that? You're going to lynch everyone that you think that's scum? Even if you're wrong? I'm sorry to say this, but that's a stupid plan. That's all we have though, isn't it. Sigh. it's dangerous to go alone Take this rope, and go lynch some scum before you stop waking up.


Following the Plan (5/9):

4) Megan
6) horrordude0215
7) jeromus (SE)
8) Zodiark13 (Rep. Kirbyoshi) (SE)[/b]

Simply Dead:
2) Shadsticle, Townie Cop, Lynched Day 1...
5) Robocopter87 replacing iPot Day 1, Townie Doctor, Killed Night 2...
1) Furcolow replacing Phentic Day 1, Vanilla Townie, Lynched Day 2.
9) Sudo_Nym (IC), Vanilla Townie, Killed Night 2.

Shotty to the Body, Vanilla Townie, Lynched Day 3


Important links:
Day 1 Starts! / Robocopter87 replaces iPot / Furcolow replaces Phentic / Day 1 Ends!
Day 2 starts! / Day 2 Ends!

If the mod flakes (unlikely), please contact Haylen.

There is one Inexperience Challenged player (or IC) and two Semi-Experienced (SE) players.

The Rules - read them, please! (format stolen from Hoopla, rules stolen from Haylen (who stole them from Incognito and Vi)

~During the Day:

1) The game is a Day Start.
2) You must bold your votes as such Vote: Homework, please put the unvote where I can see it though, at the bottom of the post preferably. Unvoting would be nice, too! Unless you want the mod to have headaches, of course.
3) Each Day will have a deadline of 3 weeks, not reaching a majority of votes during that time will result in a no lynch. I may extend the deadline in special circumstances (holidays and so). I may also reduce the deadline by one day each time if activity does not pick up. Don't lurk. Lurking makes me sad. [/end of hypocrisy]
4) Don't talk during the day privately(unless your role permits it), or you'll be modkilled.
5) You may not quote your role PM's or any other communication outside thread, with the mod. You know the drill, you'll be modkilled.
6) I don't like cheaters. Anybody who is found to be using invisible text, spoiler tags, encyption (in any form: claims, messages, and so on) or anything as such will be modkilled unless they have an extremely good reason. Not knowing is not a good reason. If you have the power to edit yours or anyone else's posts...don't. You know, modkill.
7) If you do not post within 72 hours, you will receive a prod. Failure to response to the prod within 72 hrs will result in an automatic replacement. Three prods will result in an automatic replacement aswell.
8) If you don't post for a whole game day, you'll be forcibly replaced.


~During Twilight:

1) Votes and unvotes will not be counted after a lynch.
2) The person lynched may still talk during Twilight.
3) If I haven't realized it is Twilight within 24 hours, somebody shoot me a PM. My memory isn't that good.
4) Mafia still can't talk during this time.


~During the Night:

1) The Night Phase will last 72 hours. I like this number. Any actions that have not been received by then will be forgone. (Night may end early if all actions are received. On this case, if you don't want to use your role's action, please PM me with that information.)
2) If your role permits it, you may talk to the players I have given you permission to talk to during the night.
3) Mafia, whoever sends in the kill, don't try and kill your partners, I will not be messed with.
4) Don't try and impersonate the mafia by sending me fake action PM's, I will not appreciate it, and I will be very very angry.


~General Rules

1) I will not accept insulting behaviour in my games, anybody doing so will receive a nice, well worded warning from me in thread. Further breaking of the rule will receive a harsher punishment.
2) Indigo is my colour. Don't use any kind of indigo in your posts, I will count it as impersonating the mod and you will be modkilled. Sometimes I like to edit your posts, if I do I'll use my colour.
3) Never talk to anybody outside the game except if your role permits it, and I have told you “you can talk now”.
4) Don't piss off the mod. You will be modkilled.
5) If you think you have found a loophole with my rules, you haven't. I will recognise a loophole breakage and punish you accordingly.
6) Modkills, means I kill you immediately (for breaking the rules) and change your role to Neutral Survivor, meaning you auto-lose. Modkills automatically end the day. Period.
7) Play to win, just like everyone else. Don't get disheartened if you're lynched or attacked, basically don't take anything personally. If you feel somebodies behavior has been inappropriate PM me about it and I will deal with it in some form or another.
8) Thy mod is thy goddess...however, I may make a mistake, if I do; PM me about it and I'll deal with it in some form or another.
9) If you need help PM me.
10) "Bah!" posts are perfectly fine. As long as they don't contain game information. Also don't do more than one.
11) Treat this game as a commitment, and be courteous to your fellow players. It will make everybody, including your mod happy. :)
12) It is my prerogative to change the rules if I deem it necessary, you shall receive a notification in thread and a PM aswell to notify you of these changes.
13) I like receiving PM's, if anybody fancies PMing me for a chat or rant go for it. I can't talk about game specifics though, obviously.

14)Mafia is a game of honor. Cheating is breaking the honor code you committed to when you joined this site.

And last, but not least...have fun!

~The Setup: (completely stolen from Vi, and I'm not ashamed of that :P)

This game's setup will be one of these F11s:

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

And these are all the Role PMs. Anything between braces may or may not be in the Role PM.
Mafia Roleblocker PM wrote:Welcome to Newbie 926, <playername>. You are a Mafia Roleblocker. Your partner is <playername2>, a Mafia Goon.

You may talk to your partner during pregame or at Night in (url)this QuickTopic(/url).
At Night, you or your partner may send the Mod the name of someone you would like to kill; and as long as you are alive, the name of someone you would like to Roleblock for the Night (preventing whatever Night ability they may have from taking effect).
Who sends the actions has no relevance to this game, and I will allow you to Roleblock and kill at the same time. Your partner may send in your Roleblock on your behalf.

You win if your Mafia comprises half of the living players, or nothing can prevent the same.

Please confirm in-thread, and good luck!


Mafia Goon PM wrote:Welcome to Newbie 926, <playername>. You are a Mafia Goon. Your partner is <playername2>, a {Mafia Goon}{Mafia Roleblocker}.

You may talk to your partner during pregame OR at Night in (url)this QuickTopic(/url).
At Night, you or your partner may send the Mod the name of someone you would like to kill{; and as long as your partner is alive, the name of someone you would like to Roleblock for the Night (preventing whatever Night ability they may have from taking effect).
Who sends the actions has no relevance to this game, and I will allow your partner to Roleblock and kill on the same Night if you die. You may also send the Roleblock in on your partner's behalf}.

You win if your Mafia comprises half of the living players, or nothing can prevent the same.

Please confirm in-thread. Good luck!


Cop PM wrote:Welcome to Newbie 926, <playername>. You are the Townie Cop. Your goal is to find and lynch the Mafia lurking among the players.

At Night, you may send the mod the name of someone you'd like to investigate. If you live through the Night, I will tell you if that player is Mafia-aligned or Town-aligned. You may not investigate yourself. Your investigation is guaranteed to be accurate, though if you are roleblocked you will receive No Result.

You win if all of the Mafia are dead.

Please confirm in-thread. Good luck!


Doctor PM wrote:Welcome to Newbie 926, <playername>. You are the Townie Doctor. Your goal is to find and lynch the Mafia lurking among the players.

At Night, you may send the mod the name of someone you'd like to protect. If that player is targeted by a kill that night, the kill will fail. Your protection is guaranteed to work provided you are not Roleblocked. You may not target yourself.

You win if all of the Mafia are dead.

Please confirm in-thread. Good luck!


Townie PM wrote:Welcome to Newbie 926, <playername>. You are a Vanilla Townie. Your goal is to find and lynch the Mafia lurking among the players.

You do not have a Night Action. But that's okay, since you have all Day to make yourself useful.

You win when all of the Mafia are dead.

Please confirm in-thread. Good luck!

/Confirm.

Just some pearls of wisdom, since I saw how well it worked out when Incognito did it, and I endeavor to be helpful, even when the idea isn't my own:

1) Get an avatar. It actually helps quite a lot, as having an avatar will help the other players keep you seperate from everyone else. It'll make you "pop", and that's a good thing, in this case.

2) Read the wiki. Seriously, it helped me out a lot, and it's only expanded since then. You don't have to pour through it all in one cram session or anything, just look at it as you need it. It works wonders.

3) You've got me, and IC, and two SEs (jeromus and kirbyoshi), to help you guys out. Feel free to ask us questions if you have any. Helping you guys learn is why we're here. Of course, don't forget that we're playing to win, too, and we're not necessarily townies.

4) For the love of the gods, have fun. That's what this entire site is here for, and not having fun makes mith sad, and when mith gets sad, Bluehost crashes the site.
One time, back in 'nam, Sudo was set upon by an entire squadron of charlies. He challenged them all to a game of Pictionary, which he won resoundingly. The charlies were forced to not only surrender the skirmish, but also their world-famous chili recipe, which Sudo sold to Texas for a hefty profit. Sudo is a master of diplomacy.

Most mods frown on starting ingame talk before everyone has confirmed.

I meant socialisation - There's hardly any game-talk to be had with the few players we have confirmed.

That, and I forgot about this "Confirmation stage" thing...

Also, I am posting from my cell tonight, and may have to use this method occasionally due to home net being down. That said I'll do all I can, including steal wireless, to be active. Don't hate me if some of my posts are short!

First of all, hi everyone! I'm horrordude0215, but most people call me horror. I've played in a few games here on MafiaScum.net, but I still have a long way to go, which is why I'm in a newbie game! :lol:

Most people prefer RVS, or Random Voting Stage, to start the discussion. I, however, prefer RQS, or Random Question Stage. So, I've prepared some questions for everyone:

Everyone: Do you prefer being Town or Scum, and What is your experience with Mafia?

Phentic - Policy Lynches: Good or Bad?
Shadsticle - Did you enjoy getting your role PM?
Cybertronix - Lynch All Lurkers: Yes or No?
Megan - Lynch All Liars: Yes or No?
iPot - Do you prefer to make your decisions off of logic or gut?
jeromus - Do you find lurking to be a scum tell?
Kirbyoshi - What do you think is the best way to scumhunt?
Sudo_Nym - Who is your scumpartner?

My answers: I prefer being scum, because I think it's more challenging, trying to deceive everyone while still remaining undercover. My experience with mafia is limited to a few games on this site and several on a different one.

I also encourage people to ask me any questions that come to mind... I enjoy answering them! :D

Can't say I have one. And I've been on-site here for several years now.

Sudo_Nym - Who is your scumpartner?


Seriously? vote: Horrordude for being too silly.

Well - In all of the games I've been in of late - Lurkers have flipped town. It all depends on their past game experience. If they've flipped scum in games they've lurked in and town in those they haven't, then it is a tell. Generally, in newbie games, it tends not to be a tell.

So, in short, a lurk-tell needs a meta to back it up.

And - Horror...Really? "Who is your scumpartner"?

You're going to amuse me in this game - In that I have confidence...

Don't have a preference yet. I've only played a couple games on another forum, this is my first on this site, so very much a newbie

Policy Lynches: Good or Bad?


Had to look up on the wiki what this meant (so good question choice, i've learned something already :)), but it sounds bad - one less chance to hit scum, and if someone's playing badly, maybe they could use some more experience rather than less.

Oh - And so far I prefer playing town; though I've only ever played scum once, as a "Traitor delayer" in a now ongoing game.
Missed that question. My, I feel like a goose :P
