GENERAL RULES:

Absolutely NO out-of-thread communications may be either entirely or partially quoted, screen-capped or in any other way directly provided within the game thread (summaries of PMs for purposes of role reveals is allowed, however).

We all know what the spirit of the game is, and we all know when certain actions, even if not expressly forbidden, fall outside of the spirit of the game. For purposes of this game, I have commissioner of baseball like powers to sanction conduct that violates the spirit of the game, even if not expressly forbidden, up to and including modkilling the player and lying in their role reveal. If you have any question at all whether something you plan to do crosses the line, ask me first. This is your one and only warning.

Format: We will be running a normal mafia format with lynches during the day and night actions during the night. Days will run for ***48 hours*** or until a majority is reached (unvoting after a majority will not count) - but Day 1 will not have a deadline unless there is a need for it. Night will end in 18 hours or when I receive all night actions – so if you have a night action available but choose not to use it, please PM me to tell me “no Night Action”. The clock WILL run on the weekend, unless I decide to toll the clock.

Phase: A phase is either Day or Night (in most cases), where Days usually involved voting for lynches and Nights usually involve submitting night actions, such as Night Kills.

Cycle: A complete Day and Night cycle, like Day 1 and Night 1 together make up a complete cycle. Some powers last for a complete cycle while others only for that particular phase.

Actions: Night actions will occur instantly, unless otherwise specified. This means that two people night-killing each other will both die (unless one is saved somehow) . Any action not submitted by the deadline will be forfeit for that phase and I will only accept the first action submitted. Once you send in your action, that’s it! (No take backs!) So be sure of your decision! I'm here to talk it through if you need help. I will keep the Night phases open until deadline unless I receive all potential actions available for that phase. If you do not wish to use your action during a particular phase, please send me a PM stating that your intention to not use it so that I can cross you off the list.

Night Actions: These are actions that can only be submitted during the night phase. Most night actions should specifically state that it can only be used each night, but if you have any questions about this, please contact me immediately.

Inactivity: There is no official penalty for inactivity; however, any good mafia player knows that the less active the player, the more likely they are to be the next on the chopping block. So do your part to participate, you will not regret it. If you drop off entirely, or need to, let me know and I will try to replace you if at all possible. Some of you I have already spoken with about this, so if you suddenly find yourself unable to keep up, simply notify me and we can work something out.

Dead Player Posts: FORBIDDEN! If your player dies, you get one death reaction post that cannot contain any game information other than an ACK! I DIED!!! GO INNOCENTS or something.

Editing Posts: Permitted.

Quoting the Mod/Revealing Mod Pics: You may not quote anything I say in PM. You can paraphrase all you like – or lie about it, of course – but you may not post a “quote” from me in an attempt to prove your bona fides

Invisibility: It is not a requirement, but is to your advantage to use invisible mode.

Special Mod Notes:

I try to keep the flavor to a minimum, so to the best of my ability everything I've written in the Game Setup and the Role PMs has game meaning.

I like to have the game decided on the board, so ModKilling is a last resort. We all are veterans here and we know how to play, so have fun.

Everything you need to know about the game will be in-game, either on thread or in the Role PMs. In other words, you don't need to know the source material in order for your side to be victorious.

Thank you!

Lastly, if the recruited player has a power role, the player will keep that power with the new crew, but will act as a reserve.

Not sure what this means. Can they use the power or not?

SMC I demand the dumbed down version.

So we can make deals at L2 with the thought being anyone voting us on a certain crew would unvote? Would that then not expose those who unvoted as part of an alliance?

What would be the motivation for people to unvote for someone whether or not a deal has been made?

With 20 players, it takes 11 to lynch

Remember to bold your votes in black or red

MOD NOTE: No need to rush, take your time to digest. Enjoy the game!!!

I second the request for dumbing down and I'll sign a statement supporting your belief that a tree falling in a forest makes a sound sans receiver if it will help...

MOD NOTE: Part of your answer is explained in response to Nolder's question. Players have value. Allegiances are valuable.

But, as you note, there are inherent risks. That's why things have to be done strategically.

Also note, I will not announce who the meeting is with while the vote is happening. The crew will be notified that a meeting is set, as will the player.
