INTRODUCTION TO MAFIA

Welcome! Mafia is a strategy game that pits an uninformed majority (the Town) against an informed minority (the Mafia). This means that the townies don't know who the other townies are, but the mafia do, and they have their own shared PM to communicate. The game begins with the Day Phase (DP), a public thread in which all players may discuss to determine who they think is mafia. Town's objective is to eliminate the mafia by voting to lynch them, while the mafia's objective is to avoid being lynched and get townies lynched instead. During the Night Phase (NP), players can use any abilities they have, and the mafia may kill one player of their choice. All night actions are submitted privately via each player's individual or mafia PM. The game ends when either all of the mafia have been eliminated, or when the mafia make up 50% or more of the living players (since there will not be enough townies to lynch them).

RULES

Gameplay

1. Votes or unvotes must be bolded.
2. You may unvote or change your vote at any time before the final vote count is posted. However, once a lynch occurs, no further vote changes will count.
3. A lynch occurs when a majority of the players votes to lynch someone.
4. After a lynch occurs, all players (including the lynched player) may talk until I post the final vote count.
5. If a majority hasn't been reached by deadline, or if a majority VTNLs, the DP will end in a no-lynch.
6. Submit night actions via your PM.
7. DPs have a deadline of 72 hours. NPs have a deadline of 24 hours.

Player Conduct

1. Don't C/P anything from your role PMs into the game. Paraphrasing is fine.
2. Don't talk about the game outside the thread or mod-sanctioned PMs.
3. Don't post in the game thread after you die and have been flipped.
4. Play to your win condition.
5. Violating one of these rules will result in a modkill.

Other

1. If you are asking me a question in the DP, please bold it.
2. Please try to maintain civil conduct.
3. Please try limiting quote pyramids. They clutter the game, making it more difficult to read.
4. Anything not covered here will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

The mafia may continue to talk in their designated PM after death.

Vaar will do most of the modding in this series, though I'm still helping with design/balance and night actions.

It'll take me a while to get into the swing of things because I haven't played in a long time, but rest assured I will be of assistance to anyone who needs it.

It's best for us to identify the ringers and the new users so that the ringers can guide the newer players. It's best that we start of with some SOP votes.

That was to balance the game.

And i hate all the BS that takes place in the first DP.

I'm getting right to it and claiming.

I'm a normal, boring town.

That tells us literally nothing apart from you're willing to say you're town.
That's the broadest sense of a claim, if I've seen one.
Are you willing to divulge more, or no?

I'd rather you not claim as of now, but if you say you're claiming, but only go as far to say you're town, then that doesn't help at all.

You mean compile a bunch of BS on how i'm town?

That is questionable enough.

I don't get what you're insinuating from this post.

As of now, there are 2 on Dragon, 1 on Opsi. Simple stuff.
I'd still like clarification to what Dragon's saying, though.

This is scummy. Why would you bandwagon a VTL without any explanation?

Explain reasoning for vote.

RVS: Random Voting Stage. We don't have any reason, so we just randomly vote someone to get the game going on. Don't go over 3 points on Dragon also. We don't have proof if he is mafia or town.

Needless to say, I'm town. I'm ready to reveal my role if it is necessary.

Then do it. If you say it like this you know, more people won't believe you are town.

I think everyone who's ever spoken to him would ask the same question.

I'll post a little later. I have some homework to do right now.

By the way I am a new player.

You are going to learn a lot.

1. Don't role claim that quickly
2. RVS, don't vote over 2 on someone.
