RULES:

(Modified KRF rules)

1. All votes must be in bold to be counted. You have three options: vote [name], unvote, or no lynch. Vote [name] is a vote to lynch said player. Unvote removes an active vote [name] or no lynch vote. No lynch is a vote to end the day without lynching.

2. A greater than 50% unanimity must be reached during a day phase in order to carry out a lynch or no lynch. They day phase officially ends when I declare it as such. I will declare the end of a day phase as soon as I am online and able to confirm a majority vote. So, for example, if a majority vote is reached during the day, but someone retracts their vote before I declare the day's end, then the day continues. This very thing occurred in the previous game and I wanted to make this clear with everyone from the start.

3. Players must not discuss the game outside of the day phase threads and private PMs I have started. I will be included in all PMs between privileged parties. If you, as a player, are invited to a PM under the pretence that it is "official," confirm that I am on the list of recipients. If not, report those players immediately. The penalty for violating this rule is immediate mod killing.

4. Dead players are not permitted to participate in the game, including both private PMs and the day phase treads. I will let uninformative comments slide such as, "Avenge me, townies!" However, if you reveal information that gives a demonstrable edge to either side, I will punish the party to which you were affiliated. For instance, if you were mafia, were killed, and said something too revealing from your grave, then the mafia will lose their next night phase. The same goes for townies.

5. No copying and pasting from private PMs between you and me.

6. Be courteous to your fellow players. This game loses fun if you are inconsiderate to others, whether by direct abuse or simply by not showing up. This game is most fun when players… well… play. If you have to be gone for a day or two, let your fellow players know.

7. You may communicate with me directly via the PMs I started with you when you were first invited. Also, please use these for your night phase actions so I don't have to keep track of brand new PM threads all the time.

8. This game will start with the Day Phase, so everyone listed below is alive and well.

9. Some of you have roles in this game. There are no rules against revealing these roles, but be warned, doing so early in the game could have devastating consequences.

10. To avoid this game going on for months, there will be phase limits. Each day phase has a 14 day limit. Each night phase has a 3 day limit. Day phases that reach the limit end in a no lynch (Subject to my judgement). Night phases that reach the limit will cause actions not submitted to be forfeit. These limits are flexible and can be changed pending special circumstances.

11. The townies win when all mafia are eliminated. The mafia wins as soon as they meet or beat the townies in number.

12. I WILL screw with you.

====================================================

MAP: http://www.debate.org...

====== Prologue: ======
A man, clad in a white shirt frilled at the edges, a purple waistcoat, black trousers and black boots lay, as if asleep, on a rug in a rather spacious room lit by candlelight. His black hair draped over his forehead. To someone who didn't know him, he was asleep. However, to someone who did know him, they knew his was foreseeing. What and from whom, not even he himself knows. A man in a grey robe, with the hood shrouding his face in darkness, walked in. He looked like a monk to the untrained eye. He whispered something, fast and low. The 'sleeping' man shifted a little, before awakening.

"Master" said the man in the Grey Robe " I sense it is time"

"I too Vesro, I too. Let us go to the watching tower. " He replied

====== 1. Appearance ======

Three men stood atop a huge tower in a castle. From it you could clearly see the dainty village of Thornville, with light smoke drifting out of chimneys. Beyond it, a city aglow with Neon, which never rested, worked on. Mountains lay dead ahead, whilst a river, to the North but their left, ran slowly into the nearby sea. Ad beside that river lay dozens of strangely shaped monuments. They had two feet for a base, which rose a few inches before turning into a huge ring, almost like a hoop.

A light breeze picked up. A steadier wind gathered, followed by a powerful gust. It went to one direction, the hoops. The man, known by the name of Lord Alcywiz, mouth changed from a emotionless straight line, into a broad grin. His dark cloak fluttered underneath him. He knew, after many failures, it was finally time. He just knew.

Sparks began to emerge in between the hoops. These grew larger, and turned from yellow to green to blue. Suddenly the patches emerged more frequently, to the point where they appeared to be stable. They then joined up, consuming the whole ring. It was clear to the eyes of anyone, these were portals, not rings. Most of the rings failed, however, slightly less than two dozen worked. Suddenly, white human-shaped from grew in the blue sheen of the rings. Then, miraculously, people appeared, solid and real. In a few seconds, 21 people, men and women, appeared, confounded by their appearance here. Then their attention turned towards the looming tower straight ahead of them.

"Ah, good evening ladies and gentlemen, to this world, my world. Some call it the 3rd realm, others Olomania. It doesn't matter. you are here, and with one purpose. To win. To win what? Why, the game. You all have an allegiance. You all have a goal. You will all be given bundles. Each day, you will all choose to kill someone. And at night, you will use your skills to gain an upper hand. " - Said Lord Alcywiz. His voice projected evenly across the field where the people lay.

" What if we refuse to kill each other !" Shouted a man in a well kept suit.

"Why then, I kill two people. Granted, you will have 2 chances to not kill someone. However one of them isn't today!" - He said this with a devilish grin.

A general murmur amongst the crowd began. The Lord soon hushed them.

"Oh look, the rising dawn! Choose someone to kill starting..." He took out a stopwatch and after a few tense seconds he finished with "NOW!"

====================================================

Special rule for Day Phase #1: You CANNOT do a No-lynch. If you do, I kill 2 people.

Start.........NOW!
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

21 people. So what do we think on terms of number of mafia? 6? 7?

Last time it was 1/3, so I'm betting on 1/4, so 5 or 6.

And I'll be out 25-27.

What effect does the map have on the game?

I'm not sure. I assume that it will help us understand the storyline.

Precisely. Oh, and:

A majority of 11 is needed to lynch someone.

WJM's approach isn't bad, but it could be better.

Vi_Veri, Logical-Master, and Nags are all currently on and have not posted. Perhaps if any of these are left, we should look at lynching them first? Also, unless I typed in the names wrong into the "Advanced Search" there is no longer any AnimeFanToy or Pmcbrown on DDO.

Panda: Though perhaps not of much use this day phase as much as others, will characters in the story reflect roles in the game? (aka character "Bob" is the cop, "George" the godfather (or equivalent) etc. etc.)

Yes. You will directly affect the storyline. As will your character. And, scenarios may happen. Roles may get challenges, and for completing them, they will get bonuses (E.g. Unlynchable, bulletproof, etc.).

New rule:

13. You cannot reveal your character, only your role

Ah, I misspelled both names while putting them in the search engine. My apologies. However, add Pcmbrom to the aforementioned list of those who are on but have not posted.

Three men stood atop a huge tower in a castle. From it you could clearly see the dainty village of Thornville, with light smoke drifting out of chimneys.

Looking at the map, I think Thornville is supposed to be Thornshire.

Generally speaking, the first people to post in Day Phase #1 do so because they have some kind of advanced warning in the form of private IMs. Based on the theory of human habit coupled with my experience moderating a game, I propose that the first person outside of the moderator to post is mafia.

Therefore, I vote to lynch wjmelements.

Actually, there is a huge factional rift between the People for Thornville (PFTV) and the Thornshire Community Group (TSCG). The count will use both as not to offend the residents.

The rift is over a simple matter. Thornshire is traditional, but some argue it is a remnant of the old system of serfdom, and needs to be replaced by something more.....modern, like Thornville.

It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

Let's just say you're role is Winston Churchill: Regular Townie. You can say you're a regular townie, just not that you're Winston Churchill.
