    Hogwarts is a school for good magic. There is bad magic, but it was a no-no and adults preferred not to talk about it. There are many who practice good magic, but they have a hard time working together and are easily led astray. There are very few who practice bad magic, but they know exactly who's on their side and who is an enemy.

    They both want control of the world, and everything begins and ends with Hogwarts. The ultimate battle for the fate of the world is about to begin.

    Also don't forget to study for your exams and get plenty of rest.

    o~o~o~o~o

    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.

    Day 1 Begins

    It is now Day 1! Finally. *Updating with actual flavor.*

    o~o~o~o~o

    A dying summer breeze sweeps across the grounds to brush against ancient stone walls. This is Hogwarts, but not as you know it. Something dark stirs in the castle, an object of great power is protected within, and the newest batch of students, young Harry Potter among them, is set to arrive.

    o~o~o~o~o

    Votecount 1.00

    Abstaining (13): Jarizok, miner11121, The Waco Kid, Zenzao, Delphine, Majube, his fluffiness, Citrus, Palindrome, mallorean_thug, KaiDASH, owner, Bill Door

    With 13 alive, it's 7 to Soft Lynch and 10 to Hard Lynch!

    Please remember to obey rule 11 (votes must be BRIGHTLY COLORED, bolded,

    and on a separate line).

    Day 1 will end on Sunday, November 13th at 2100 EST or immediately following a Hard Lynch. A timer is available here.

    How did you two meet? Your actions so far suggest there's history there.

    I'm... working on some college apps, and watching the swing state votecounts like a hawk.

    It's been a stressful few days, to say the least.

    Where is everyone though? There's some new people that I haven't played with yet.

    There's still hope people will start playing when the distraction is over.
    You haven't answered my question though Waco. Why the Majube vote, is he mean?
