[/list][/area]

[list=1]

  • [*][b]Follow all [url=http://forum.mafiascum.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=6470]site rules[/url][/b].
  • [*][b]Mod colour[/b] - My mod colour is ___ and ____ faded text; don't use it.
  • [*][b]Behaviour[/b] - Don’t be a dick. This is a heated game but below the belt attacks will not be tolerated. Attack the play not the player.
  • [*][b]Don't talk about ongoing games[/b] - You may not talk to each other about this game outside of threads I have created for this purpose. You may not talk about other ongoing games in this thread.
  • [*][b]Animated GIFs[/b] - are of the devil, but they are permitted behind spoilers if clearly labelled as such.
  • [*][b]Tiny text[/b] - is also of the devil, keep it 70+ please.
  • [*][b]Provable randomness[/b] - is against the rules. Saying that you rolled a dice is fine, using dice tags or random.org is not.
  • [*][b]Cryptography[/b] - is forbidden. [wiki]Breadcrumbing[/wiki] is okay.
  • [*][b]Confirmation[/b] - You have about 48 hours to confirm your role and your alignment by PM. Game will start sooner if everyone confirms. Posting in a private topic counts as confirmation.
  • [*][b]Days[/b] - Days last about 14 days, starting at 8am GMT and ending at 1 PM GMT. Extensions may be granted if there are replacements.
  • [*][b]Activity[/b] - You must post at least once every 48 hours or I will [wiki]Prod[/wiki] you. You then have 24 hours to post in the game thread or I will replace you. The activity timers run at half-speed on weekends. If you need to be absent for longer than this, you should declare [b]V/LA[/b] in bold in the thread like this: [[size=100]b][b]@Mod: I will be v/la until Thursday[/b][[/size]/b].
  • [*][b]Proxying[/b] - When you post v/la in the thread, you can proxy your vote to another player like so [[size=100]b][b]v/la until Thursday, proxy vote to Plotinus[/b][[/size]/b], then Plotinus will be able to move your vote like [[size=100]b][b]YYYY votes: XXXX[/b][[/size]/b], [[size=100]b][b]YYYY room votes: AAA, BBB, CCC[/b][[/size]/b]. I am not picky about the formatting but it needs to be clear which vote they're voting with. Your vote will be returned to your control automatically when you return from V/LA or at the end of the day phase.
  • [*][b]Prodging[/b] - A naked "prod dodge" does not reset the prod timer. To avoid being prodded/replaced for inactivity, include some game advancing content in your prodges, such as "got prodded; xxxx is still scum."
  • [*][b]Last words[/b] - If you replace out, you may PM me with a message to leave for the person who replaces you and I'll pass it on to them.
  • [*][b]Quoting[/b] - You can always directly quote [i]from[/i] the public thread [i]into[/i] any private threads I have given you access to, and [i]from[/i] any neighbourhood threads [i]into[/i] your scum PT. You can always quote yourself, unless it contains text that you haven't yourself written. Everything else must be paraphrased [b]in a manner that clearly indicates it is a paraphrase[/b]. This includes but is not limited to: private mod communication including role pms and answers to questions, [i]from[/i] neighbourhoods [i]into[/i] public thread, [i]from[/i] neighbourhoods [i]into[/i] each other, [i]from[/i] mafia PT [i]into[/i] anywhere.
  • [*][b]Voting[/b] - Votes must be in bold in the format [v]Plotinus[/v] or [b]Vote: Plotinus[/b]. Strong preference for using vote tags instead of bold tags. Unvotes are nice but not required. If I think it’s a vote, it’s a vote, no tricks. Type [[size=100]v]Plotinus[[/size]/v] to vote and [[size=100]uv]Plotinus[[/size]/uv] to unvote.
  • [*][b]Elimination[/b] - Days end early when a simple majority of players (50% of living players + 1 rounded down) vote to eliminate somebody. If a majority is not reached at deadline or if a majority of the players vote for no elimination, the day will end without an elimination. At evens, 50% is sufficient for no elimination.
  • [*][b]Twilight[/b] - Begins when a majority is reached and lasts until I lock the thread: usually at the next pagetop. Later if I was afk, sooner if the flipped person requests it. You're still alive until I flip you so you can talk in any game threads you have access to until then, but no votes or unvotes will be counted.
  • [*][b]Night[/b] - Night lasts about 48 hours, ending at 8am GMT.
  • [*][b]Action submissions[/b] - You may submit actions via PM (if town) or PT (if scum). If the actions are not submitted by the deadline then you do nothing that night unless you're scum in which case I'll use an algorithm to determine a fallback kill for you because inactivity nokills are lame. You can change your mind as many times as you like before the deadline.
  • [*][b]Reminders[/b] - If I don't hear from you about your night actions, I'll PM you 24 hours before the deadline. This doesn't count as a prod. If I still don't hear from you, you will take no action (with the exception of the scum factional kill).
  • [*][b]Play to Win[/b] - and have fun![/list]

Important setup Information

[size=150]Important setup Information[/size]

[b]The following mechanic is in play:[/b]

Get a Room

[area=Get a Room]In addition to voting for the elimination, if players are engaging in an annoying argument or if you just want a neighbourhood with your friends, players may vote for several players to "get a room".


The number of votes required for a room to go through is [b]one less than twice the number of occupants of the proposed room[/b] (3 for a 2 person room, 5 for a 3 person room, ... , 13 for a 7 person room, etc.).


[b]Each player is limited to one new room per day phase[/b] because we're not having 78 neighbourhoods in this game. We're just not.


If enough people vote in this manner, those players will gain a [b]temporary post restriction[/b] that they may not talk to or about each other in public for 48 hours or the rest of the day phase (whichever is shorter). While restricted in this manner, they may continue to vote and unvote each other normally, including room votes and proxying.


The room will be [b]open for the rest of the game including at night[/b].


If the players who get the room are not all members of the same scum faction, a [b]private topic will be created[/b] to continue their discussion.


If they are scum together and if daytalk exists, they may [b]continue their discussion in their scum PT[/b] if desired.


If they are scum together, but daytalk does not exist, the [b]scum PT will be unlocked for 48 hours[/b]. Other members of their scumteam who were not included in the room, if any, may also speak in the PT during this period.


Players who break their post restriction 3 times over the course of the game will [b]lose their vote for the rest of the current Day phase[/b]. Warnings will be publicly issued and the moderator's discretion is final. Restrictions do not begin until they have been acknowledged by the moderator.


Place a vote using the word "[b]Get a room[/b]" in bold. Examples:


[b]Get a room: player1, player 2, player 3, etc[/b] (in response to some stupid TvT argument that you’re tired of reading / in response to someone scumhunting your buddy a little too hard)


Abusing this mechanic because you want a room with your friends is fine with me if you can get enough votes to pull it off, but intentionally annoying other players with the sole purpose of gaining a PT is not. Try asking the town nicely like so "Hey guys, otherWallPoster and I want to spend 6 pages walling at each other. If you don't want to read this exchange, help us out: [b]Get a room: Plotinus and otherWallPoster[/b]"[/area]

VT role PM

[area=VT Role PM]

Hello XXXX,


You are a [color=green][b]town Vanilla Townie[/b][/color].


During the day, you may vote for players you think are scummy and may use your words to convince other players to vote with you. During the night, you may reread the game thread in search of scumslips you missed during the daytime.


[b]Alignment/win condition[/b]: You are a [color=green][b]town[/b][/color] aligned [color=green][b]Vanilla Townie[/b][/color] who can win with the [color=green][b]town[/b][/color], which will happen when all [color=red][b]threats[/b][/color] to the [color=green][b]town[/b][/color] have been eliminated.


Good luck and have fun!


[b]Confirm:[/b] by PMing me your role and alignment.

Mafia Goon role PM

[area=Mafia Goon Role PM]Hello XXXX,


You are a [color=red][b]Mafia Goon[/b][/color].


Your buddy is YYYY, [color=red][b]Mafia Goon[/b][/color].


[b]Night Factional communication[/b]: You may talk to each other during the night in [url=LINK]this PT[/url].


[b]Night Factional kill[/b]: You have a factional kill. Any of you may submit it in the scum PT like so [b]XXXX kills Plotinus[/b].


During the day, you may vote for players you think are miseliminable and may use your words to convince other players to vote with you. During the night, you may reread the game thread in search of clues for who to nightkill or miseliminate tomorrow.


[b]Alignment/win condition[/b]: You are a [b][color=red]mafia[/color][/b] aligned [b][color=red]Mafia Goon[/color][/b] who can win with the [b][color=red]mafia[/color][/b], which will happen when the [b][color=red]mafia[/color][/b] controls 50% of the [b][color=green]town[/color][/b] or nothing can prevent this from occurring.


Good luck and have fun!


[b]Confirm:[/b] either by PMing me your role, alignment, and the name of your buddy or by posting in your PT.
