    A voice from behind him, in the shadows, said, very quietly, “You have never disappointed me.”

    Shadow did not turn. “That’s weird,” he said. “I disappointed myself all the way. Every time.”

    “Not at all,” said the voice. “You did everything you were intended to do, and more. You took everybody’s attention, so they never looked at the hand with the coin in it. It’s called misdirection. And there’s power in the sacrifice of a son - power enough, and more than enough, to get the whole ball rolling. To tell the truth, I’m proud of you.”

    Rules


    1. This is a closed setup, where player alignment and role will be revealed upon death. There is not a list of roles that may or may not be included. This will be a medium complexity game.

    2. You may trust all information the moderator gives you. There will be zero bastard modding or false information.

    3. Day 1 lasts 120 hours, Day 2 lasts 96 hours, subsequent days are 72 hours. All nights are 24 hours.

    4. Do not lie about real-life commitments. Similarly, do not question the validity of other players’ real-life commitments. If you will be inactive for a prolonged period of time, inform the game host and I will do my best to replace you.

    5. Mafia is a game about making arguments, but it is not a roleplaying game. Don’t go overboard. Lies are part of the game. Attacking someone’s credibility is part of the game. Do not overdo it. Everyone signed up to have fun, so keep the game fun. Reminder: This is only a subsection of the forum, and the forum's posting rules (particularly Rule 1 concerning proper English and legibility) apply. If you want people to put the effort into reading your posts, put the effort into making them readable.

    6. Mafia is a game of analysis - removing a player’s ability to analyze things is against the spirit of the game. Keep references that only a handful of players would understand to a minimum. Encoded messages, hidden text, and other such methods are a no-no. Everything you have to say or not say should be clearly readable in your post by anyone.

    7. Respect your fellow players, and their time. Don't be a jerk. Do not threaten to or actually get intentionally modkilled. Do not directly insult your fellow players - attack their play, but not them as a person. Mafia is a social game, and you are playing with real people, not just names on a screen. Respect other players' right to a good game. Give the game your best effort, no matter which team you're on. Mafia games require a time investment, and if you sign up, you're committing to spending that time and doing your part to contribute to a good game.

    8. Do not edit your posts. Do not edit any QuickTopics you may be posting in. Do not quote information directly from your QuickTopic or your PM. Only living players may post in the game thread. Do not post in the game thread during the Night phase.

    9. You may not privately communicate with anyone except the game moderator unless you're specifically allowed to do so. This includes using systems outside the scope of the game to communicate something game-related. Any game-related questions should be asked in your personal QuickTopic.

    10. Do not use out-of-game information (such as Skype, other forum activity, other mafia activity, or real-life activity) to generate reads. Do not use out-of-game information to exert pressure or influence on this game. Do not mention out of game information in the context of explaining or speculating on a player’s alignment in this game.

    11. Votes must be BRIGHTLY COLORED, bolded, and on a separate line. Any votes not following this format will not be counted. You will be rewarded with frequent and (probably) accurate vote counts.

    12. This game uses a Hard Lynch / Soft Lynch system. Soft Lynch is a majority lynch. Hard Lynch is approximately 75% of the living votes. A Soft Lynch is sufficient to lynch a player at deadline. A Hard Lynch immediately ends the day. If Soft Lynch is not reached before deadline, there is No Lynch. If the votes are tied at deadline, there is No Lynch. When a Hard Lynch is reached, or the deadline occurs, whichever comes first, stop posting.

    13. Mass claiming early in the game will not benefit town. You should probably avoid doing that. Attempting to decide if a player is town or mafia based on a flavor claim also has the potential to end badly. You’ve been warned.

    14. Do not fake Daytime activations. There may or may not be daytime abilities, but faking them will get you a Stern Warning or possibly modkilled.

    15. Moderator decisions are final.

    16. Good luck, and have fun! This is not optional.

    Day 1 Start

    Day One

    The mountain is tall and rocky and goes on forever. It seems to twist and climb into the sky endlessly.

    From this vantage point, it’s possible to see out over the plains. The sky is dark, but lit with something internal, an unnatural white-green radiance that flashes and forks crazily across the sky like a rip, a tear.

    Lightning, in one frozen, perfect moment.

    The paradigms are shifting - anyone can feel it. The old world, a world of limitless space and resources and future, is being confronted by something else - a web of energy, of opinions, of gulfs.

    People believe, thought Shadow. It’s what people do. They believe. And then they will not take responsibility for their beliefs; they conjure things, and do not trust the conjurations. People populate the darkness; with ghosts, with gods, with electrons, with tales. People imagine, and people believe: and it is that belief, that rock-solid belief, that makes things happen.

    The mountaintop was an arena; he saw that immediately. And on each side of the arena he could see them arrayed.

    They were too big. Everything was too big in that place.

    Day One will last 120 hours, and ends at this time:

    We agreed a few games ago to not use it, i think. Zenzao used it on day 1 and ppl kept whining about it.

    So people please do not use that blue for votes, we all like blue as a color, but it doesnt work well with the background.

    Zenzao used a particularly disgusting shade of blue. Mine is borderline.

    ~Eido note~

    I edited Rule 11 for clarity.

    Notice how Fontisian's blue isn't one of the colors used?

    Hello all!

    Just a note at the start of the day - posting may slow down after Sunday, D1 ended up starting in a fairly busy patch of the week for me.

    Vote: Citrus

    You're not the American Gods equivalent of the Priest. Because I'm the Priest.
