    Rules are here.

    [flavor]

    [setup]

    ---

    Let's at least see who's interested while I bully font into telling me what the setup is. I know some of you will happily /in for a game even if you don't know the details!

    I think I'll go with Citrus' phase lengths (96 hours for Day 1, 48 hours for Night 1, and then switch to a 72/24 hour Day-Night cycle) unless someone has a better suggestion.

    Game start is ???, will probably depend on if enough people sign up, since it's a closed setup.

    poke me somewhere (skype being the best choice) when you are close to filling up the game.

    not sure if i can play, busy with my move and i won't have full internet for another 2 weeks.

    will make my decision close to the starting line.

    Looks like you're full. Still, interested if there's space, though I want to see the rules first.

    Still don't know the setup, but there's no way we're close to full.

    Sorry, I'm a little focused on trying to pay rent at the moment.

    You know, rent. The thing that keeps us in our apartment, where we sleep. The thing I took care of last month. The thing we're two days late on. The thing neither you nor our other roommate can pay for this month, because you don't have fucking check books. Rent.

    I'd like 12-13 people, but I can adjust based on signups. Zenzao, this is a closed setup with flips on death.

    Here are some copy pasted rules:
    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. Do not talk about your QuickTopic or conversations with the moderator in the thread.

    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. If you believe a player is violating one of these rules by letter, or in spirit, contact me in your QuickTopic. Do NOT address the potential violation in the thread, proceed on normally. I will handle it.

    16. Moderator decisions are final.

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

    If this is running during the big harry potter game on 2+2 I can't.
    That sounds like it would confuse the crap out of me.

    If it hasn't filled by the time I get avada kedavra'ed D1, I'll do it.
