Hello! I am one of the the Leaders of the Mafia game. Some Mafias, I notice, don't get much recognition, or people. This is a pre-signup, to see which you want to participate, to save Game Leaders the disappointment of their Mafia failing. (They just get disappointed earlier).
RULES OF MAFIA:
First, let's talk about the basic Mafia game. There are two major sides, Heroes and Villains. The Heroes have a numbers advantage, however they do not know who out of the other players is also a hero. The Villains may be small in numbers, but they get the advantage of a Group PM. Because of this, they will know who their allies are and can discuss freely and privately among each other their plans and strategies. There are also Third Parties, but we'll get more into them further down. Players will be assigned a character by the Hosts, and do not get to directly choose who they'd like to play as.
Every character has unique (or at least semi-unique) abilities that they can use. These include one active ability, one passive ability and may include something else.
The active ability is one that must be PMd to the Hosts in order to be used every night. For example, if a Character had an ability that said "Can kill one player per night", the Player who is that character must PM the Hosts their target every night, or the ability will not be used.The passive ability is one that activates on it's own under certain conditions. For example, if a Character had an ability that said "Will survive any direct attacks, and kill the attacker", if they are attacked during the night, their ability will activate once they are attacked, and the attacker will be killed without any action on the player's part.
The game is split up into two cycles, Night and Day. During the Night, players can use their PM with the Hosts to tell them how they would like to use (or not use) one of their abilities that night. The villains will also use this time to select their target for the nightly kill, and the majority vote in the Villain PM will be attacked by whoever is selected as the nightly killer. Changing from past Mafia games, the Villains will also vote on who the nightly killer is. Whoever gains the most votes, will be the nightly killer. However, once a Villain has been the nightly killer, they cannot be selected again until all other living Villains have also been the nightly killer.
When the Night is over, one of the Hosts will detail the Night's events in a flashy (or not so flashy) post, and the game will go into the Day stage. During the Day, players are encouraged to discuss and analyze the Night's events along with what has happened during the game as a whole to pinpoint someone they think is a villain. The entire group (Even the villains) will vote towards someone to execute. The person with the most votes will be executed by the entire town. Once they have been executed, the day advances into the next night Cycle.
The goal of the game is for one of the major sides to eliminate all major threats. So for Heroes, this means getting rid of all Villains and Malicious Third Parties. For Villains it means to eliminate all Heroes.
The Third Parties have their own individual win conditions. They could help everyone, hinder everyone, stay to themselves, or pick whatever side they want.
Now for the rules. These are simple rules, and I'd very much appreciate if you'd follow them and be a good sport in this game!
Do not be a bad sport!! This is meant to be a fun game, and while friendly competitive banter is completely okay, do not insult any player in a possibly hurtful way. If you do, your team will be forced to pay for your consequences, as you will be removed from the game and your role forever written out.
I will also convene with other hosts to see if they will continue the punishment for bad sports in their own game.Do not PM other Players without Host consent/involvement. Aside from the main villain PM and a few unique cases, there should be no private discussion between players. If a player has PMd you, please inform a Host (WITH PROOF) IMMEDIATELY. This is something that could ruin the game for everyone involved, and we really do not want that. There will be rewards for players who do so.Do not use screenshots to prove your role, in the main thread, or PMs. This also is a game-breaker that would make the game less fun for everyone. Anyone who does will be removed.
You must have at least 100 posts to play. This is to do our best to keep alts out of the game, I apologize to any new Viners without enough posts that are interested, but it's a necessity so that cheaters have less of a chance of succeeding.The Hosts may add/change/remove rules at any time at their discretion. This is our game.
We will try to not be dictators, however if we see a flaw in a rule that is being exploited by other players, we reserve the right to change the rules as we see fit. The better sports you are as players, the less we have to do this. If we do, we will make a large noticeable post and tag every player (alive, dead, or otherwise) to inform the group.
Inactivity will not be tolerated. This has been an issue in several past Mafia games, you must be active in the thread at least once every two nights to some extent. If you are not, you will be warned by a Host, and if you do not change your activity level, your role will be temporarily written out, and possibly given to an active and well behaved player who has died.If you were killed, you are dead. As a role, you're gone. You can't reveal what you know, or affect gameplay at all. You can still talk, but not about anything relating to the game after you died or information you know but haven't shared. If you do anything that could effect another player's choice, you will be removed from the game after a single warning.Have fun!! Let's face it, we're all a bunch of nerds here, so do what you want to make the game more enjoyable! If you want to speak like the character you were assigned, feel free! If you want to alter your playstyle to be in character, have a ball! Post memes, songs, GIFs, pictures, etc. Don't go overboard (posting the same thing five times gets kind of old) but enjoy yourself!
