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.

Here is the VT PM:

Apologies to the people I invited at basically the same time this game filled up. I'd like to start this game today, we'll see.

Jump King
Aug 10, 2011



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.

Jump King
Aug 10, 2011



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.

Jump King

Yeah let's cool it on talking about ongoing games

Jump King

Role PMs out. Votefinder up soon. I'm still finishing the docs up so be patient.

The voting rooms are anonymous places and your pm should specify which column to post in.

You cannot send your ballots to yourself, but you can vote for a power to be used on yourself.

wall monitor posted:

Oh! interesting. So the person who gets the most votes gets euphemized regardless of if they have majority or not?

What happens if there's a tie?
Correct.

if the vote leaders are tied 5-5 the first target to reach 5 will be executed. Is that clear?

Before people jump on this train, I'd like for this thread to not be the place to debate how offensive our wording will be. Use the word you want and don't be an rear end about it.

Thread was closed to respond to an increased number of PMs.

I'm sorry if this game has upset any of you, and also apologize for being catty with my thread close there.

I don't want to be patronizing here but an essential part if games like these is arguing about stuff like this and if you're worked up over it please take a short break. It's sometimes very easy to let the game affect you strongly and while I encourage engagement, I want all of my players to feel good during their play.

I'm glad this thread has invigorated all of you so much, but please don't give up out of frustration.

My pm box has been cleared. If there are any other issues, let me know.

As for deadline extensions, I'll gauge the thread 'a response. Do you guys think we need an extension?

Jump King
Aug 10, 2011



Ok up to 24 hours in deadline extension but the deadline for D2 will be midnight EST on Tuesday regardless of when this day ends so consider hammering early.

Jump King
Aug 10, 2011



A reminder that all actions must be in before the day ends which is in like ~12 hours Max but could be earlier if a majority vote is reached

Fast Luck, Vanilla Town, has been killed.

Players who performed a night action have been PMed a result. Players who have received a ballot have been PMed information. If you are neither of those things, you did not get a PM. Yesterday's rooms are closed but you can still review chat. I put an extra hour on the deadline because of the long processing phase

It may be possible, because MMM's PM to me included two typos. The description of the ability told me I can use it to vote on who gets copped (for both ballots).

Ah yes, I believe it says that for all ballots handed out now that I look at my notes. Rapid fire copy pasting can result in injuries and accidents.
