This doesn't taste like anything you've licked before




A game for 15 players



You know what's important here? People. Which people? The people. You are those people. No longer will a few people hold power over the rest of us! From now on, power will be distributed among the many. We will be equal at last!

Of course, not everybody is fond of this turn of events. Specifically, a small group of people that used to rule over you are opposed to it and they're hidden in your midst. If only we didn't dismantle identity as a useless construct that only serves to divide us, we'd be able to pick them out pretty easily. As it is, we have to publicly execute people until we're safe.

We know we're all equal, so we need a fair and equal way to resolve this problem. What's is the truest form of equality? A rigid bureaucracy of course! We've designed the perfect system to eliminate our enemies while maintaining our personal autonomy, anonymity and agency. Buckle up and listen:


Days are 48 hours for weekdays, 72 if there's a weekend. There are no nights. All actions must be in before the deadline. Vote in thread for who you want to be publicly executed.

In addition to the execution, we have special powers to help us. To make everything fair, each power is controlled by a vote. There will be three voting rooms, one for each power. To access a voting room, you must have the relevant ballot. Every day you will be told what ballots you have and which voting rooms you can enter. There are 5 ballots for each power. Voters can anonymously chat with other voters in the voting rooms, but the votes themselves are cast in secret. One of the ballot holders is randomly selected to perform the action, they will be told the target of the action and the result of the action. If there is a tie for the target of the action, the option that received all its votes first will be selected.

In addition to voting for who the power is used on, you must also select another player to whom you will give your ballot. The person cannot be you. Scum players cannot pass ballots to other scum players. If the player you passed your ballot to dies, your ballot will be given to a randomly selected player who is not dead and is not you.

For all other parts of the game, standard rules apply.

This is a democracy, people! Based on our Grecian roots, we need to be expansive and expressive with our words, to hunt down, pin down, and claim as our own the very essence of truth.

I expect eloquence, not just "L".

I suppose "L" is more rhetoric than I would expect from an rear end, I will let it pass.

Game's over, and fuck you Jimson. It's not my fault that you guys couldn't get your shit together by deadline. No one gets access to docs because I don't fucking care anymore, I hope you all enjoyed ruining my game, and there won't be another.


Yes sure I will be the eloquent one

Nah, I invite people because I want to fill up my game, not because I don't want plebs joining.

Besides Ernie, you're good at mafia and there's nobody on the roster I would want to kick.

Alright guys, when I get home I'll send my doc to Ecco and I'll start as soon as possible after that.

Special Rules

Hiipfire and Epsilon Plus, I want you guys to try to post like 15 or 20 times for each game day. Actually with each vote finder update I'll announce which of you has more posts. I hope your natural sense of competition will encourage you.

Anyway, this has no mechanical effect on the game and I won't be enforcing a minimum post count.
