Details regarding theme will be released when the game starts.

Things you should know:

1. This is an 11/13/15 man game, depending on how many sign up.

2. This game contains advanced mafia elements and, as such, it is not suited toward beginners. Signing up does not guarantee you a spot; I will use my best judgement to award positions in the game.

3. Each role in this setup has a 'psychological malady', which essentially acts as a hidden characteristic changing the nature of the role. On the surface, all roles seem fairly basic, but each are either slightly or significantly changed depending upon the psychological malady in question.

RULES:

1. Day Phase is 72 hours long. Night Phase lasts either 48 hours or until all night-actions are submitted; whichever comes first.

2. Votes to lynch must be in bold. You can unvote. You do not need to unvote before re-voting for someone else.

3. IMPORTANT: Due to the recent trend of inactivity, I've implemented a mechanism which penalize's a team if too many of its members are inactive. There are more town players, so town is more vulnerable to this penalty. You should assume that you will draw town -- so do not under any circumstance be inactive. You won't just be hurting yourself, you'll be hurting everyone.

4. Standard ethics rules apply. No C/P, no screenshots, no breaking implicit rules, and no speaking after the DP is over. If you know someone has been hammered, you should consider the DP over even if I have not made it official. Any speaking after the DP is obviously over will be punished.

5. Complete rules will come when the game starts.

I will not be a lenient mod. If you sign up, you are agreeing to be active and engaged. You are agreeing to follow the rules. You are agreeing to be a team player. Any behavior which contradicts these requirements will be dealt with most harshly.

Sorry. While I thoroughly enjoyed playing mafia again, I'm not about to waste time and energy playing a game with 99% of the people being inactive.

I see that you are going to punish the entire team, rather than the individual, which is basically just multiplying the harm of inactivity. The fact they're inactive already punishes the entire team.

I'd just as soon as you implement a whitelist and exclude people known for inactivity or requiring replacement.

I can understand that sentiment. If I find it difficult to get enough players in the game because of that rule, I'll let it go and simply pray that inactivity isn't an issue. The mechanism in place will slowly strip a person of their role, thus reducing their utility to town. Actives will not directly be affected by this punishment, but they will feel the indirect effects of it.

As for the whitelist, I've already got that going in my head. There are some 10 members that will not be allowed to participate in my game either because they have demonstrated extreme inactivity in the past or because they do not take the game seriously. I'll bump you again if a lack of people requires me to drop this rule.

I really don't think it's all that fair to punish town when there's 10-11 town members, one of them is bound to be inactive.

Of course. I'm expecting that. If it's like my previous game where over half of town is extremely inactive -- that's when I step in. I'm going to make sure that the "punishment" is just and that it encourages play.

Fair enough, as long as it's more directed at the inactives and not the town in general.

After TGAP's similar complaint, I've been looking at ways to do this without reducing town's total utility. If I can't find a way to deal with inactives without punishing town, I will almost certainly just let it go.

Can you link me to some of your games? Ordinarily one must complete a game in the Beginner Series before being accepted into non-Beginner games. If you've played elsewhere or on a different account, I'll just need to confirm that you're an active player and you can be in.

I went inactive halfway through, and I'm sorry for that, but I can guarantee that I absolutely will be active the whole time no matter what happens (unless I die, etc. :)

I may put you in if I lack players. For right now, try getting a Beginner game under your belt and don't go inactive. Promises are nice, but I can't rely on them.
