Ruleset is a heavily modified version of Vi's normal ruleset.
Rules in this game are
PLEASE NOTE THAT VOTES MUST HAVE ## BEFORE THEM.
All players selected to be either a town, a mafia, or a other. Vi, SpyreX and Zoraster subsequently made a full setup based on these selections. Things could be crazy. This could have bastard modded elements. Or it could be as plain-jane as possible. You’ll just have to find out.
What is it? What do I do?
This is the period during which everyone who's alive can post in this topic. Generally speaking, you want to lynch someone whose Win Condition wants you dead (for instance, Townies want to lynch Mafiosi and vice versa).
What is voting, and how do I do it?
Players may vote for a person they want to see lynched by posting
somewhere in their posts. I won't accept it if it's not in bold and if it doesn’t have ## before it. Unvoting is not necessary to place a vote. To unvote type,
Do we have to lynch?
You are allowed to vote to No Lynch (
##Vote: No Lynch
). This will take effect if no other majority can be formed from the players off the No Lynch wagon.
Can the Mafia talk to each other during the Day?
Players may ask for prods by typing
. The mod reserves the right to prod at his initiation. Prods should be acted on promptly or will risk replacement.
Deadlines will be set roughly two weeks from the start of each day, adjusted slightly to make it easiest on the mod and players. If the deadline arrives before anyone is lynched, there will be a no lynch.
When does the Day end?
The Day ends with a lynch, a no lynch, or the deadline elapses. Generally, someone is lynched if they receive a majority (50%+1) of player’s votes.
Where do I send my actions?
Twilight is simply the period between when the hammer vote (i.e. the vote that gives a player a majority) occurs and the moderator is able to lock the thread.
2. You may post, vote, or otherwise act as normal during twilight.
3. Realize that twilight may end at any moment. It is to your benefit to almost always have a target selected for any action that will occur in instantaneous night and merely to switch the selection when twilight falls. This will keep you from doing “no action.”
4. Twilight ends and your ability to send in actions ends the moment the thread locks.
Where do I send my actions?
This game uses an instantaneous night.
All night actions must have been given to the mod during the day or during twilight. It is to your benefit to submit night actions before twilight so that you don’t have your actions missed. You may change your actions before night occurs.
2. Once twilight is over, the thread will be locked, the night’s results will be posted, result PMs will be sent, the thread will be unlocked, and the next day will begin immediately.
3. The thread will be locked while the mod is organizing the night results.
Where do I send my actions?
Nowhere. It’s too late. You missed the night.
Things you cannot do:
Can I talk about this game elsewhere?
While this game is ongoing, you are NOT allowed to discuss it in other topics/games (as this will likely get you modkilled in that game
as well as
this one). PMing other players about the game will result in a modkill. This game is in
, and in any QuickTopics the mods explicitly give you. That's it.
You use cool colors! Can I use them?
No. Impersonating the mod is both cheesy and fraudulent. Zoraster will use
. Do not use red in your posts or risk being modkilled.
I know how to prove my Towniness! I'll post my Role PM!
No you won't. Quoting your Role PM or anything I tell you via PM will result in your modkill. The exception: Members of the Mafia may quote their PMs to each other without reprisal.
Okay, but I can still prove my Towniness through other, clever ways...
No you won't. As a moderator I try to avoid betraying who the scum are through any means. If you try to break the game, etc. through invisible text, steganography/cryptography, etc., you will be modkilled.
I have mod powers... so I can edit/delete this post... right?
No. What you post in this topic STAYS in this topic. If you multipost because the board is messing up, I will not delete the extra posts.
I'm dead. Can I still post?
No, with one exception. A recently deceased player may make a "bah" post consisting of the letter 'N' followed by as many lowercase 'o's as you prefer. Nothing else is acceptable. A “dead quicktopic” for dead players may be given to you for you to talk to other dead players. You may not discuss this game while it is ongoing, even while dead.
You talk a lot about modkills. What is a modkill?
Pretty self-explanatory on its face - I kill you immediately. I also change your role retroactively to Neutral Survivor - meaning you auto-lose. If a modkill occurs during the Day on a town member, I will immediately move the game to Night.
1. I make mistakes. If I’ve made a mistake on vote counts, the deadline, or a typo, please bring it to my attention in thread. If you think I’ve made a mistake otherwise, please PM me.

Have fun. Or else. And remember, it's a game - keep it classy and don't take things personally; everyone's doing what they have to to win.

This is what a sample Role PM would look like.
