Welcome to Two of Four Mafia. You live in this really small town somewhere in the vicinity of nowhere. It has recently come to your knowledge that two of you are real bad people, who spend their nights drinking, killing people and using nasty launguage. Two others decided to fulfill their civil duty - they go out each night, using their special talents to fight the bad guys, or just to patrol the streets and look real guilty. The remaining three decided they'd rather just sleep, which contrary to popular opinion does not give them any advantage. During the days, you decided on the obvious course of action of lynching the person you like least every day, in order to weed out the bad guys. Good luck with that.

Game over, town wins!

Rules (stolen and edited from SenFan, who stole and edited them from PJ)

Rules On what is Allowable
1) This is only a game, and I expect all players to remain somewhat civil. I will not tolerate excessive abuse upon freedom of speech: obscenity, profanity, libel, and fighting words will not be tolerated, and if you push it, the Moderator reserves the right to have you replaced. In other words, be respectful to all players, as well as myself.
2) Do not talk outside of this thread, unless your role PM explicitly says you may do so, and even then, you are restricted to night-time for all out-of-thread conversation and may only communicate through your quicktopic thread.
3) Do not edit or delete your posts in any way, shape, or form. Once you have posted something, it is there for good, unless I find reason to alter or delete your post myself.
4) Do not quote your role PMs in any way, shape, or form. This is also true for night conversations. You may, however, paraphrase your PM at any time, but if you go too far, the Moderator reserves the right to either replace you or to modkill you should the situation warrant.
5) Do not post in invisible text, excessively small text, or use [ color = black ] tags.
6) You may request mod-prods, replacements, clarifications, and vote counts from me directly in the thread, but please precede such with a bolded Mod: So-and-so, so that I will be able to answer you as promptly as possible.
7) Once I have officially posted that you are dead, then you are dead. Do not post any relevant information to the game whatsoever. You are, however, allowed a typical “Bah!” post of some sort.
8) You may talk during twilight about anything you wish.
9) Do not question my decisions in-thread: if you have a problem with me, take it to Private Messages. You may, of course, post problems you see with my votecounts, but that’s about as far as I’ll allow things.
10) Try to post at least once every 48 hours. Treat the game as a committment. If you go inactive, you will be replaced.
11) This is a game! Play hard, play fair, and enjoy yourselves.

Technical Rules
1) This game is a day start. Day 1 will start when everyone has confirmed by PM.
2) Each day the town must decide on a lynch. Once a majority has been reached on a player, that player will be lynched, regardless of any subsequent unvoting.
3) Votes must be in the form Vote: Player otherwise they won't be counted. Players must Unvote when switching their votes.
4) The Day will begin with a set deadline. This may be extended, if discussion is particularily good, or due to extenuating circumstances. You may ask for an extension at any time in-thread or via PM, if you think it's warranted.
5) If the deadline is reached and there is no majority, the player with the most votes will be lynched.
6) If two or more players are tied for the most votes when a deadline hits, the player who reached that number of votes first shall be lynched.
7) Nights will last a maximum of 3 real-time days. If you have not sent me a night-choice by that time (should you have one), I will randomize your choice.
8) If you feel that you may not be able to post in-thread for a period of 72 hours or longer, please say so in-thread or send me a PM as warning. If I find it necessary, I will have you replaced, but I would much rather keep all players who sign up for any of my games.
9) Any and all of these rules are subject to change at my discretion.

Set-up

2 players will receive the scum PM:

You are scum along with (name). Use (this) quicktopic to night talk. Each night, you may PM me the name of one player you wish to kill. You must also specify which of you makes the kill, in case of a roleblock. Nights will last a maximum of 3 RL days, if you don't send me your choices by that time I will randomize them.

You win when only scum remain, or when nothing can prevent that situation.


3 players will receive the townie PM:

You are a vanilla townie.

You win when all scum are eliminated.


2 players will receive 2 of the following 4 PMs:

Cop wrote:You are a cop. Each night, you may PM me the name of a player you wish to investigate. You'll be told that he appears either guilty or innocent. Nights will last a maximum of 3 RL days, if you do not send me your choice by that time I will randomize it.

You win when all scum are eliminated.


Doctor wrote:You are a doctor. Each night, you may PM me the name of a player you wish to protect from kills. You may not protect yourself. Nights will last a maximum of 3 RL days, if you do not send me your choice by that time I will randomize it.

You win when all scum are eliminated.


Roleblocker wrote:You are a roleblocker. Each night, you may PM me the name of a player you wish to block. That player will not be able to perform any night actions. Note that you only prevent a night kill if you target the scum that actively makes it. Nights will last a maximum of 3 RL days, if you do not send me your choice by that time I will randomize it.

You win when all scum are eliminated.


Miller wrote:You are a miller. You have no special powers, but will appear guilty to cop investigations.

You win when all scum are eliminated.


Everyone is asked to confirm by PM.

All confirms are in. Wake up everyone, 'tis a beautiful, sunny morning; a perfect scenery to decide who will hang today.

It is now day 1. With 7 alive, it takes 4 votes to lynch.

Deadline is December 22nd, 12:00 GMT.

Checking in here to show activity.

Vote: TCS for now, pending any evidence shown.

Week long days? Wow. I guess we need them, though, due to the nature of the games here.

eh, forgot to bold.

Vote: TCS.

I misread, those are actually month long days, so we should have more than adequate time to get everyone involved and spark some discussion.

I actually think this game is pretty good. I'm trying to get the guys back on my site to do something like this. Without the solve-all Cop and Doc strategy, people are a hell of a lot more likely to be active.

This game will probably also lend itself to false claims, I think.

If days are limited to a month, then this game is screwed. But I suppose we have few data points, so I need not be so dire.

Sorry, wasn't around at the weekend.

Vote: veerus. Random.

We can ask for a deadline extension if the thread is busy. If it's dragging, the deadline's a good thing.

Lurker policy lynching begins in seven days if there is no content to work with by then.

I was going to copy Thad because I heart him, but then I realized he followed me.

You like me, you really like me?

Kaiveran, what do you think makes this setup so interesting?

ThAdmiral, why did you vote ripley?

By the way - millers (if any) should claim now.

I think that is generally the best play, although people are welcome to dispute.
