Welcome to The Dresden Files Mafia!

"In the name of the Pizza Lord. Charge!" - Maj. Gen. Toot-Toot, Za-Lord's Guard

RULES

Read all of the following information carefully. It will behoove you to do so.

Activity

You are required to make 10 posts per DP. At least 5 of those posts must be substantive. A substantive post is any post that advances the progress of the game. The determination of what is or is not a substantive post is mine, and mine alone, to make.

Failure to meet this activity standard makes you eligible for replacement. If you know in advance that you won't be active, tell me ahead of time, otherwise I will have a lot less sympathy for you. For those who were insufficiently active but who had legitimate reasons for the low activity, I will expect you to make up for your inactivity in the next DP. You may receive 1 activity prompt in the last 24 to 12 hours of a DP; this is not guaranteed. A failure to get this prompt out to you will not excuse any inactivity.

PM Etiquette

Don't use PM structure, wincons, PM time stamps, or things of that ilk as points of analysis in the game. Discussion of these issues is strictly prohibited. You may not C/P anything from your PMs into the game or take photos of your PMs. There is to be no communicating via non-mod-initiated methods, even with teammates or hydra halves. This means there is to be no game-related discussion on G+ hangouts, rabb.it hangouts, unauthorized PMs on site, PMs offsite, etc. If you suspect or know that any such communication is taking place, you are obligated to inform me immediately.

Remember, paraphrasing is your friend. You may only paraphrase PM content. An acceptable paraphrase should substantially change the original wording of the passage, and that change should be noticeably more than mere deletion, addition, or substitution. I am willing to pre-screen your paraphrases if I have time. Violation of the rules in this section ("PM Etiquette") are the most severe breaches of rules in my games, and will most likely result in instantaneous mod-kills.

Other Issues

Observe civil and good conduct. Except in cases of exceptional rudeness, anyone who violates the conduct policy will receive 1 warning. Violations past that warning will result in you being replaced or mod-killed. What constitutes civil and good conduct is at my discretion. Additionally, all players must play to their win-con. Attempts to throw the game will not be tolerated. Play to win. Finally, excessive spamming, trolling, or thread derailment will also not be tolerated, and operates on the "1 warning, then replacement/mod-kill" paradigm.

Cycles and Voting

All DPs will be 72 hours long until the total number of players is less than 8. At that point, all DPs will become 48 hours. NPs will always be 24 hours less than the previous DP (so, a 48 hour DP is followed by a 24 hour NP). I am willing to grant extensions for the DPs or NPs upon request, but it will be at my discretion whether to grant those requests. DP extensions will be 12-24 hours; NP extensions will be 6-12 hours. Votes or unvotes cast in twilight will not be assessed. Once a lynch is secured, the DP immediately ends; you must refrain from posting after a lynch is announced or secured. Only two warnings will be offered in twilight reminding people to stop posting. Posting after the warnings may result in a mod-kill. A policy of majority (as opposed to plurality) lynching is in force for this game. You are not required to unvote before re-voting, but you are required to use the acronym "VTL" to preface your votes and to bold your votes. Sometimes, when I am in a hurry, I will do a ctrl+f search for "VTL" and "unvote;" so using those specific phrases is important.

THEME

This mafia game is based on the book series of the same name. It is an urban fantasy tale of a wizard, Harry Dresden, who investigates paranormal mysteries and fights off magical threats in the city of Chicago. This game is not about the TV series, which is based only loosely on the books. Here is the link to The Dresden Files wiki: http://dresdenfiles.wikia.com...

SEMI-OPEN SET-UP

This game has a semi-open set-up, meaning that I will provide a list of all possible roles and flavors in the game. This list names more roles and flavors than are actually in the game. No roles, flavors, or mechanics not listed in this list will be present in the game. Flavors may be hidden or may be explicitly stated. There may or may not be multiples of certain roles and flavors. This game will not begin with more than 2 of any non-Vanilla/Goon role and will not begin with more than 6 Vanilla/Goon roles ("Vanilla/Goon" is a single group, rather than two groups).

Possible Roles

1. Ascetic
2. Bodyguard
3. Bulletproof
4. Cop
5. Doctor
6. Godfather
7. Hunter
8. JOAT (composed of roles from this list)
9. Lawyer
10. Miller
11. Mimic
12. Ninja
13. Oracle
14. Paranoid Gun Owner
15. Role Cop
16. Role Stealer
17. Roleblocker
18. Serial Killer
19. Sidekick
20. Strongman
21. Tracker/Scout
22. Universal Back-Up
23. Vanilla/Goon
24. Vigilante
25. Visitor
26. Watcher/Lookout

Possible Flavors

1. Compulsive
2. Day
3. Even/Odd-Day/Night
4. Insane
5. Paranoid
6. X-Shot

LIVING PLAYERS

Warren
TUF
LM
Vaar
Khaos
Sui
Wylted
Unstob
Dani
Ford
Smithers
7th
Forever

With 13 players, it takes 7 votes to lynch.
The DP ends at 11:00pm, EST, on 8/15/17.


Good luck, and let the game begin!

Bsh, I assume players would be told if they are even/odd, day, or x-shot variants. However, if they are insane, paranoid, or compulsive, would they be told?

I will refer you to the OP, where I said: "Flavors may be hidden or may be explicitly stated." That is the extent to which I'll be answering that question, but you are free to make educated guesses or to discuss hypotheses in the DP regarding your question, however.

I don't recall ever being an advocate for mass claims DP1, so I'm not sure what you are referring. But, you know, thanks for thinking of me or whatever, I guess. (have I mentioned how I love being misrepresented....)

Anyhoo, since I'm a bully, I'll do this:

By the way, I intend to be changing my approach to the game drastically this game. [queue cheers of applause]

As a consolation, I'll tell you that my role number from that list is odd.

Every flavor would be shared, except paranoid and insane, which would not be shared. How would anything else make sense?

Are you saying everyone with a PR ought to submit a night action every night or risk a potential modkill? I don't think Bsh would okay that.

How does Mimic work? Not familiar and google didn't make it super clear.

Same. Does anyone know who Ford is/has anyone played with him before?

Well I'm just thinking it may not be because it doesn't HAVE to be. The other ones you'd have to tell players about the modifiers.

How does Mimic work? Not familiar and google didn't make it super clear.

My guess is it's similar to an absorber/role thief/universal backup. Something like that. Though my guess is entirely predicated on the name.

The word "act" is problematic for me to answer your question, since you are likely referring to a personality trait, and ironically, if I were to act in a way that is not my personality, that would itself, be suspicious.

If you mean will I not be making assertions, then yes.
If you mean will I not be attempting to lead town towards a lynch, then yes.
If you mean will I not be hyperposting, then yes.

Just assume I'll be placing votes and little else.

If there is a paranoid gun owner, they should claim immediately. Failure to claim DP1 should result in a lynch.

My name is Donald Morgan, and I approve this message.
