The Greatest Mafia
Champion



Calvinball Mafia is a game of mafia for 13 players.

These rules are permanent and cannot be changed:
  • The game will start with 9 Vanilla Town, 3 Vanilla Scum, and 1 Third Party Anarchist;
  • The game will repeat a cycle of day and night until all threats to the Town have been eliminated or the Scum control the majority vote;
  • The player with a majority vote (##vote [player]) during each day will be instantly killed;
  • In the event a player is not killed via majority vote by the mod-provided deadline, the day will end and night will begin;
  • Player alignment will not change;
  • Players can trust all mod-provided text at all times (i.e. players cannot change flips - janitor or otherwise);
  • The Scum team will have one collective kill each night that cannot be blocked or altered in any way by player rule changes - day will start after this kill is performed; and
  • Players cannot come back to life; and
  • Rule changes / actions that impact an individually named player may only impact one individually named player at a time and must be resolved by the mod before any additional rule changes / actions are requested (i.e. ##throw calvinball at merk must be resolved before any other rule changes or actions are requested and ##throw calvinball at merk, capps, and Fry is an invalid rule change / action.

The mod reserves the right to alter the permanent rules at any time in the event that players are awful.

These rules are not permanent and subject to player ridiculousness ->
Primary Rule: The following rules are subject to be changed, amended, or deleted by any player(s) involved.

1.0. The following words in these rules are mostly freely interchangeable, the Primary Rule applies:
-Can
-May
-Must
-Shall
-Should
-Will
-Would

1.1. All players must wear a Calvinball mask which hides their alignment publicly.

1.2 Any player may declare a new rule at any point in the game. The player may do this audibly or silently depending on what zone (Refer to Rule 1.5) the player is in.

1.3. A player may use the Calvinball in any way the player see fits, whether it be to incur injury upon other players or to gain benefits for himself.

1.4. Any penalty legislation may be in the form of pain, embarassment, or any degradation the rulee wishes to execute upon the other player.

1.5 The Calvinball Field should consist of areas, or zones, which are governed by a set of rules declared by players. Zones may be appear and disappear as often and wherever the player decides. For example, a corollary zone would enable a player to make a corollary (sub-rule) to any rule already made. Or a pernicious poem place would require the intruder to do what the name implies. Or an opposite zone would enable a player to declare reverse playibility on the others. (Remember, the player would declare this zone oppositely by not declaring it.)

1.6 Flags shall be named by players whom shall also assign the power and rules which shall govern that flag.

1.7 Songs are an integral part of Calvinball and verses must be sung spontaneously through the game when randomly assigned events occur.

1.8 Score may be kept or disregarded. In the event that score is kept, it shall have no bearing on the game nor shall it have any logical consistency to it. (Legal scores include 'Q to 12', 'BW-109 to YU-34, and 'Nosebleed to Pelvic Fracture'.)

You have the opportunity to take a one way trip with a crew of ~20 to Mars. You'll be supplied, sent food and equipment once you land.
But you might never come back. You might never talk face-to-face with anyone from back home again. You might die on a cold, dusty rock.

Do you go?

Role PMs are out. You should have received one of: 1) Town; 2) Scum; and 3) Anarchist. Alignment is in the op. No flavor for role PMs, but there will be flavor during the game.

What fun will be had today, it is sure to be rich.
Oh Calvinball Calvinball, we all sing the starting song.
The game is now begun, opened with that familiar ding dong.

##rule Create Two Zones: The Speaking Zone, and the Action Zone. If you are in the Speaking Zone, you may only speak. If you are in the Action Zone, you may only perform actions.

Mod Outcome of Rule: Two Zones Created; All players start in the Action Zone.

This is Calvinball; be creative. Create zones with rules, place players in zones, assign points for actions, do crazy poo poo, who cares?

You can't create rules in the Speaking Zone because you can't perform actions. You can only speak in the Speaking Zone. If you had done your ##enter and ##rule actions backwards, you would have been successful.
