INTRODUCTION TO MAFIA

Mafia is a strategy game that pits an uninformed majority (the Town) against an informed minority (the Mafia). This means that the townies don't know who the other townies are, but the mafia do, and they have their own shared PM to communicate. The game begins with the Day Phase (DP), a public thread in which all players may discuss to determine who they think is mafia. Town's objective is to eliminate the mafia by voting to lynch them, while the mafia's objective is to avoid being lynched and get townies lynched instead. During the Night Phase (NP), players can use any abilities they have, and the mafia may kill one player of their choice. All night actions are submitted privately via each player's individual or mafia PM. The game ends when either all of the mafia have been eliminated, or when the mafia make up 50% or more of the living players (since there will not be enough townies to lynch them).

RULES

Gameplay

1. Votes or unvotes must be bolded.
2. You may unvote or change your vote at any time before the final vote count is posted. However, once a lynch occurs, no further vote changes will count.
3. A lynch occurs when a majority of the players votes to lynch someone.
4. After a lynch occurs, all players (including the lynched player) may talk until I post the final vote count.
5. If a majority hasn't been reached by deadline, or if a majority VTNLs, the DP will end in a no-lynch.
6. Submit night actions via your PM.
7. DPs have a deadline of 72 hours. NPs have a deadline of 24 hours.

Player Conduct

1. Don't C/P anything from your role PMs into the game. Paraphrasing is fine.
2. Don't talk about the game outside the thread or mod-sanctioned PMs.
3. Don't post in the game thread after you die and have been flipped.
4. Play to your win condition.
5. Violating one of these rules will result in a modkill.

Other

1. If you are asking me a question in the DP, please bold it.
2. Please maintain civil conduct.
3. Please limit quote pyramids. They clutter the game, making it more difficult to read.
4. Anything not covered here will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

The mafia may continue to talk in their designated PM after death.

Vaar will be co-modding this series with me.

Hello everyone, my name is DD. Some of you know me from other games or from helping Sapph to mod the last couple beginners series. This time around I will be playing in the game as a ringer. My job as a ringer is to help those of you that don't have much experience with this game to learn it, so if you have any questions about the game feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer.

So now that the intro is complete, VTL Math

Do we need to un-vote before we re-vote? Rule 2 implies no but I want to be sure.
Unvoting before revoting is not necessary.

Chaos, DD, ThinkBig, and TUF are all either playing or moderating another game at the moment, so they may not be as active at the start of this one.

Hey everyone! I don't believe I know any of you besides TUF, so I hope to get to know y'all better this game.

Anyway, let's get the ball rolling. The ringers this game are TUF, Disc, and Think. Based on probability, I'm going to assume one of you three are scum--if none of you are, it'll be easy to weed out the two from the newbies.

Also, as a general rule, lynching in DP1 has been shown to correlate with a higher chance of a Town win, so be sure to decide who you suspect this DP the most.

I just checked and correct me if I'm wrong, but there's a decent chance that none of them are mafia. 47.5%

So if it's randomized I'd say it's a toss-up, but if not then yeah I'd assume one and only one is mafia.

Also, refrain from making unnecessary posts and cluttering the thread, and be sure to post reads frequently.

One more thing, if you are not Vanilla, DO NOT CLAIM THIS DP, unless you are close to being lynched.

Anyway, I'm tempted to buddy with TUF, so are you Town bruh

Consider it me being insecure enough to ask rhetorical questions. Anyway, were you ever Mafia before in a game (and if you were, mind linking me to said game)?

It's a pretty common thing for people to ask at the beginning of a game, the idea being to look at the way a persom responds rather than just what they say. I do not think highly of the idea personally, but to each their own.
