Rules:
1. All votes must be in bold to be counted. You have three options: Vote [name] by X, Unvote, or No Lynch. Vote [name] is a vote to lynch said player. X is the execution method by which you propose killing. If it involves a gun, the person whose gun is to be named and for the lynch to be successful they have to own the gun, say they own the gun, and consent to use. You may name any execution method you wish. I advise that it be a realistically lethal one. Rope is plentiful at hardware stores and this is a town with a significant number of trees, so if you want to be boring just say "Vote [name] by hanging." If the voters are creative with the execution measures, I will be creative with the consequences. This may or may not be good for them, it depends on what their creativity brought in.

2. A greater than 50% unanimity must be reached during a day phase in order to carry out a lynch or no lynch, and a majority of this majority must agree on the METHOD they have named in their votes in order to lynch. The 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, either to no lynch, to successfully lynch, or to exhaust themselves with a stupid nonlethal execution method. Players can retract votes if the moderator is not online to avoid lynch. Once I have ended the day phase, shut the **** up. Punishment shall vary with severity but no discussion is allowed in the thread after the day phase is over.

3. Players must not discuss the game outside of the day phase threads and private PMs I have started. That includes Facebook, the dinner table or anywhere else. I will be included in all PMs between privileged parties. If you, as a player, are invited to a PM under the pretense 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 threads. "demonstrable adantage" may be considered for severity of punishment, but no "Avenge me" is allowed.

5. No copying and pasting from private PMs between you and I. You may summarize something I supposedly said if you wish, but nobody has to believe you.

6. If you have to be gone for a day or two, let your fellow players know. I reserve the right to replace any player who isn't active.

7. You may communicate with me directly via the PMs with any questions, comments or concerns. You are also responsible for submitting your night actions to me in a timely manner. Additionally, if any questions are directed to the moderator in the day phase thread, you may ask me there publicly as well as via PM (to ensure that I respond to it quickly in the thread for everyone).

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. Moreover, people can (and probably will) lie about their roles. I don't have a problem with people claiming to be whatever character or having whatever role. You can even make up a phoney summary from a PM that I supposedly sent you. The reason I'm allowing this (for now... we'll see how it works out) is because I think deception is a huge part of this game. Of course I as moderator will try and make sure this doesn't get out of hand. However, I think it's up to you - the players - to utilize your own knowledge/logic and the story to determine whether or not you believe someone.

10. The story may or may not be helpful. Up to you to figure that out. It will, however, not be privy to things your characters would not be privy to in real life, to the best of my ability.

11. To avoid this game going on for months, there will be phase limits. Until further notice, each day phase has a 4 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, and are up to my discretion.

12. The townies win when all mafia and any other hostile parties that may or may not exist are eliminated. The mafia wins when all townies and any other hostile parties to them that may or may not exist are eliminated. There is no "mathematical superiority" clause. If your team believes itself to be the mathematically inevitable winner, it had best follow through and prove it by its actions. In mafia there are things called roles. Some of them make apparent mathematical inevitabilities untrue. Maybe there are some of those. Maybe there aren't. Maybe I haven't foreseen how some of these will work and I want to unleash player creativity.

13. I reserve the right to implement or change/switch up roles throughout the game.

14. All players reserve the right to "keep a common piece of notebook paper in their pockets", filled with up to 300 characters. If nothing interferes with this, those 300 characters or less will be found on your person along with your death. This may or may not be important for your situation. That's up to you to decide. They create this piece of paper by pming it to me during any night phase, as long as they survive said night phase.

15. Despite the above, don't rely too much on death messages. I'm not going to tell you the alignment of dead players, at least not in so many words (maybe they will in their notepads, but they could be lying). Maybe the things you do see will tell you this. Maybe they won't.

16. Your role description, if you get one, or hell even if you don't, isn't an exact science. I'll hint toward the things you can generally safely do in a night, and I'll tell you if your role or lack thereof isn't competent for much of anything. You are free to try to bite off more than I say you can chew if you are desperate or daring, just describe what you're going to do as though it were a story. It'll probably have negative consequences for you, and the more you do it the less you might get out of it and the worse the consequences are likely to be. But you are free to try. A fat ugly guy is free to message me that he'll be visiting someone's house and attempting to occupy their time by sleeping with them. Unless he stumbles on some gay with a chubby fetish, which he probably won't, he's probably going to die, or be revealed for the attempt, or have his vocal cords ripped out by the family dog. But he can try it.

17. Have fun! Report anything suspicious! Don't cheat!

Story:
In a little town called Ryopia, ratings of news programs have gone through the roof. It's hard to tell why, nothing interesting has happened yet.

R_R spelled my name right! I'm so happy ^^
: If you weren't new here, you'd know not to feed me such attention. This is like an orgasm in my brain right now. *hehe, my name is in a title, hehe* (http://www.debate.org...)

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

Oh yeah just so y'all know now and it doesn't come back to haunt me later:

I will not be here from this Friday evening to next Friday morning. I will be back sometime on Friday the 27th's afternoon. Being hauled away to the police state of Hong Kong for a "visit". Last time I was unable to access the internet while I was there, I do not expect any different. So just to let y'all know.

Drag out the day and night phases during that week, plz gaiz?
tyvvvvvvvvvm ;)

Well judging by how long the phases were in the past game, i don't think that should be a problem. hah
Why kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?

Yaaay a new game :D

Anyway, Rezz, I'm assuming that you'll make any necessary arrangements with the mod if you are in fact a townie with a useful role and the phases somehow miraculously go by fast during this game. I'd hate to have an absent character with useful role go to waste. If that's the case, well, that sucks. I'm hoping the mod will somehow be accommodating to this, but I guess we shouldn't worry about that now. I just hope this game runs smoothly :) Anyway, since it's late, I see no reason for further strategic discussion until tomorrow when there are more players around. G'nite errbody.

Does this imply you know Rezz's role? Who else said they wanted Rezz's role, as there is someone else because you said "too".

Hey.
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.

I've never played mafia before so I apologise in advance for any noobish errors.

How do we get started on deciding who to lynch in this first day phase? We have nothing to go on so do we just wait and see who seems suspicious or what?

Normally, we start off with a random prosecution to get people to start role claiming, and judge suspicion off of that. Right now, every one is waiting for soemone to do that essentially, so accusations may start arising.

KRF found that in the past, the mafia often post first. So if we go with random, we should consider Nags.

In all fairness, ever since that analysis people have been hesitant to post first. Mayhaps Nags posted first because he has nothing to hide...? I'll say though that he seemed overly "suspicious" regarding Puck's joke; clearly he was poking fun at me because I was commenting about moderator accommodations to Rezz being gone for a week, if in fact he has an important role useful to the town. I'm sorry guys lol I just want the town to have a fair shot in this game after last game's fiasco. That said, I support my original first day lynching strategy (for those of you who know it) -- but since it always gets me killed, I'll just chill out and wait to see what everyone has to say.

Wow. This game is going to be interesting. If I understand correctly, our roles are developed from our creativity more so than the moderator. This means there might not be a cop so much as there is someone well suited to be the cop. Better yet, maybe more than one of us can be a cop of sorts.

I agree with theLwerd that my first-poster strategy has probably caused mafia to be skiddish. Then again, maybe Nags is using reverse-reverse psychology and he knows that no one will suspect him.

Let's get this ball rolling. I vote to lynch Nags by hanging.

I havent played a DDO Mafia game in so long. Please forgive me if my strategy is a little rusty. Nags posting first and just saying "First" is kind of sketchy because if I understand correctly, KRF did siomething with suspecting first posters.

For now, I vote to lynch nags. Although my decision my change in the near future.

What's your method, bellum? You can't lynch someone with a vacuum. Well, you can try....

Hey guys I am new to this game, so I might need a little help at some stuff. I was informed on the basics of this game, but I don't understand the whole "hanging" thing?

I thought we just lynch them?

Ghost, usually, you just lynch. But, every moderator runs their game a little differently. In this case, Ragnar_Rahl wants us to use some creativity. I'm not creative, so I chose to hang Nags. However, he's alluded to the fact that, if we get creative in our lynching, we might get rewarded (or punished).

OK, Nags first post and reaction to Puck's joke do seem slightly suspicious, so for now:

Vote to lynch Nags by hanging

I think burning at the stake would be more fun though. Burn the witch!
