American Politics Mafia Rules and Update.

Rules
1. Thou shalt ask questions of The Moderator only in thine personal character PM. The Founding Moderator shalt then reply. Else, he shalt ignore thee.

2. Thou shalt vote in the day phases only in bold letters.

3. Thou shalt not post in a thread after The Moderator hath closed it.

4. Thou shalt not post in any American Politics Mafia thread external links.

5. Thou shalt not expect to last longer than 24 hours any day phase.

6. Thou shalt not expect the Founding Moderator to release the role information of any lynched townie until the following day phase.

7. Thou shalt within any 36 hour period have posted no less than 7 words in some American Politics Mafia thread.

8. Thou shalt submit in thine private PM thread thine role use.

9. This game shall implement a new Electoral College Voting System. There will be five or fewer states arranged daily by the Gerrymander Townie consisting of a number of townies that varies that vary with death. Each state will vote to lynch according to which person has the most votes in that state. All states have equal representation and a lynch is decided when a majority of states have voted on one person. If there is no person with a majority of the states' votes at the end of the Day Phase, the lynchee is the person with the most states' votes. A tie in states' votes results in multiple lynches. An example is shown further below.

10. The night roles will be applied in the following order:
RECRUITMENT, PROTECTIVE, INVESTIGATIVE, KILLING.

11. A mafia or cult wins when they control a majority in a majority of the states.

12. The rule list shall be added to as the Founding Moderator sees fit.

Examples of the new Electoral College Voting System
The state of Texas has three people, the state of California has ten people, and the state of Vermont has seven.

If at the end of the Day Phase, two Texans vote for John Doe, two Californians vote for John Doe while three Californians and two people in Vermont voted for Baby Sue, then Baby Sue will be lynched.

If during the Day Phase two Texans, six Californians, and four people in Vermont have voted for John Doe, then John Doe has been lynched and the Day Phase is over.

If at the end of the Day Phase two Texans, three Californians, and one person in Vermont have voted for John Doe while one Texan, three Californians, and six people in Vermont have voted for Baby Sue, then both Ron Paul and Baby Sue are lynched.

Note that this system is highly abusable. Please ask any questions about this system in your role threads.

About your roles
Yall will receive your roles before 4 PM CT today (Monday).

About the first Day Phase
It will begin at 5 PM CT. The initial states will be designed by the Founding Moderator. You may not post until you have responded ROLE CONFIRM or the equivalent in your role PM and RULE CONFIRM or the equivalent in either this thread or your role PM.

About the Day and Night Phases
The Day Phase will last on average four days and the Night Phase will last on average three. The first two Day and Night Phases will be a little shorter because it is Spring Break for either the College or High School crowds, meaning that there will be more time for Mafia.

About Modkilling
Modkilling occurs at the discretion of the Founding Moderator.

These rules appear to require thought control. How do you intend to enforce them?

If at the end of the Day Phase two Texans, three Californians, and one person in Vermont have voted for John Doe while one Texan, three Californians, and six people in Vermont have voted for Baby Sue, then both Ron Paul and Baby Sue are lynched.

Did you mean to put John Doe here, or is this just a bit of a joke? If John Doe is supposed to be lynched, how is this when Baby Sue has a equal and greater amount of votes in each of the three states?

They each have one and a half electoral votes.

Clarification
On certain nights, it is possible for different parties to recruit the same person. In this unlikely event, the party that submits their recruitment action at the same time will be the one to recruit first.

I offer the following:

States must have a quorum of at least 2 players within the state voting before their vote can be counted on the official tally.

Otherwise, one player can quickly use an entire state's vote. If the states were so drawn, the mafia could quickly lynch someone using only one vote each before anyone even knows.

I disagree, I want my vote to count, but i'm the only one in my state to have voted.
I'll get by with a little help from my friends.

Clarification
Dead people can vote, but they are not counted as part of the population of a state. Dead people cannot manage their vote.

For example, if West California has 3 living people and 2 dead and a dead person votes, the vote count is (1/3).

This has a purpose, but it will only come into affect in certain situations.

This is usually assumed, but apparently I have to make it a rule.

Rule
Dead people can't talk in the forum (more than common law allows).

Unless I specify otherwise in the description of a dead townie, the player wins with the town.

LRN2 Common Law. Dead people can't talk. The mafia is anti-town. Things that have always applied.

It doesn't say that.
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.

Conidering you have already set precedent by intentionally leaving placing pms in the thread legal (Colonial America game), yo can hardly blame us for treating this the same way.
