Game Rules
All USMB rules should be followed, along with the following rules.

Game Timeline
  • Day 1 will last 1.5 weeks, or 10.5 days. Subsequent Day phases will last one week.
  • Night phases will last two days.

General Rules
  • Do not quote your role PM or any other PM/QT communication from the mod.
  • Do not contact any player in or outside of the game about the game.
  • Do not use encrypted or hard-to-see text (including "invisible" text, text below the 50% text size option, or text hidden via BBCode (not including spoilered text)).
  • Do not edit or delete posts in this thread.
  • Don't accuse other players of cheating openly. Please PM the host your suspicions instead.
  • Also, pretending to break a rule to fake or psyche out other players is the same as rulebreaking. You can lie and bluff all you want, otherwise.

Activity
  • If a player doesn't post in-game after a period of 48 hours, other players may request a prod of that player.
  • If a player doesn't post in-game after a period of 72 hours and another player hasn't made a request, I will prod that player.
  • If a player is prodded, that player has 24 hours to make an in-game post before a replacement will be found.
  • If a player receives multiple prods and/or prod-dodges excessively, that player will be subject to a force-replace.
  • If you are going to be absent for a specific period of time, please let me know ahead of time!

Votes and Lynching
  • Votes must be in the format of VOTE: Player Name. Abbreviations, missing punctuation, and misspellings will be accepted as long as it is obvious to me who is being voted for. If I perceive it as a vote, it will count as a vote.
  • Unvotes are not necessary to change a vote.
  • A player will be lynched if a majority of the players have voted for that player.
  • You may vote for a No Lynch. If a majority of players vote for a No Lynch, the game will proceed to Night without a lynch.
  • All living players, including the lynchee, may continue to post until the thread is locked.
  • Once I have posted your death scene, you may not post.
  • You may change your vote as many times as you wish.

Behavior
  • Harassment of an individual player is NOT permitted. While this is a competitive game, no personal attacks will be tolerated.
  • Always play to your win condition.
  • Do not discuss this game anywhere else with anyone else unless your role allows you to.
  • Please don't discuss pets or family in these games. You may mention them briefly if that is why you aren't posting much.

General rules amended about accusations of cheating and pretending to break rules. 6/9/14.
General rules amended about not mentioning pets or family in Mafia game thread, with exceptions. 6/12/14.

We should start by not revealing our roles we cannot let the mafia who we are even if we are just townies. If we do they can use that info to determine the specialized roles.

We need to take out the role blocker asap. When we kill him then our cop can work out in the open and our doc can save him each night while he investigates.

Avatar is insinuating the Cop is male this time and by association that HE is the Cop needing protection.

Yeah, right. Dubious hardly covers it.

THIS time, however, hopefully those with protective powers will do better than last time. I do not recall a single townie being successfully protected. :-(

Yeah, well, I'm gonna vote you right out....you're not fooling me no more, that sweet innocent look doesn't cut it anymore.

Okay, how do we play it smart? I thought I was so smart the last time and I got suckered into the phony sweet innocent talk. I"m all ears......:D

I'm not claiming to be the cop. I'm claiming that the cop should stay under cover until the role blocker is identified or killed. Then they can reveal themselves and be protected by the dr. He/she should also leave us hints about who they've investigated. None of us non-mafia should reveal our specific roles.

the godfather is going to be the hardest one to find.
[MENTION=44124]Wake[/MENTION] does the cops reports say he is innocent or a townie? Will the town doctor say he is innocent or specifically that he is the dr?

Also, let's make sure we don't lynch people too quickly for frivolous reasons.

Maybe we can set up a psuedo vote that is only temporary, and once all of us Townies agree, we then make the vote official. That way, Wake can't take it to the lynch phase before we've all had a chance to keep our vote or change it.

Official vote = Vote: SoAndSo

Psuedo vote = Temp Vote: SoAndSo

Now we need to get everyone started talking so we have a chance to figure out who is scum and who is not. The best way to get people to start talking is to vote for them. Then you look at what's being said, and what's not being said.

That's fine. Randomly voting can get things started but can we PLEASE not lynch too quickly? I noticed, watching the last game, that some votes were done well before deadline and that only benefits scum. You saw how that game turned out. Lets not rush to judgement this time.

The only vote that can't be changed is the deciding vote to lynch so if you are going to make that one, can you please make sure there is a consensus among most of us to go ahead with it? Also, if your neck is on the line, it would be nice if you'd argue your case because you could give some vital clues that will help town after you are dead just with your arguments. Unless you are scum and who cares what you think then? LOL

Might also be good to look at why someone is voting for a person. If they can't articulate a good reason...

But that is just it....we vote and then see how others react to our vote, and sometimes we may decide to change it, but by Wake closing it down (way before the established final date) we were not able to change it, especially if we were gone for a while. I came back to the game after being away almost all day with the intention of changing my vote only to find that Wake had already lynched...it wasn't even close to the final day.

The only vote that can't be changed is the deciding vote to lynch so if you are going to make that one, can you please make sure there is a consensus among most of us to go ahead with it? Also, if your neck is on the line, it would be nice if you'd argue your case because you could give some vital clues that will help town after you are dead just with your arguments.

Actually, you can change the vote, as many times as you want, the last one is the one that counts...that is why I was suggesting a psuedo vote....one that we all know is going to be the one we will make or change before we make the last and final one.

I'm with Mertex on the pseudo voting, and with keeping more to the deadlines. I'm usually on very late, almost never before 4pm eastern, more like 8pm or later, and I miss all the action.
