Welcome to Jealous Husband Returns In Form Of Parrot, a Mafia game for exactly thirteen players.



Robert Olen Butler posted:

I never can quite say as much as I know. I look at other parrots and I wonder if it's the same for them, if somebody is trapped in each of them paying some kind of price for living their life in a certain way. For instance, "Hello," I say, and I'm sitting on a perch in a pet store in Houston and what I'm really thinking is Holy poo poo. It's you. And what's happened is I'm looking at my wife.

General Guidelines:
  • This is similar to a C9++ setup, with a few twists. Alignments go out D1, but roles and flavor D2.
  • On Day 2, players will receive a role PM with the flavor of another player in the game. From that point forward, players must make a conscious attempt to play and post as that player. Players should consider this a softish post restriction, but let me be clear: if this sort of thing doesn't sound fun as hell to you, this probably isn't the game for you. Imitations should not be done with intent to insult and if that's what you're about, this game isn't for you either.
  • I will be maintaining a Replacements list - The Peanut Gallery - but here's the rub, if you want to stay on the replacements list and be a valid replacement, I need you to post as though you are playing.
  • Replacements ought to behave as vanilla neutral players until they are officially brought into the game to replace a lurker. Replacements may not vote for the lynch, but may (and are encouraged to) vote to "peanut" as outlined below. If we run out of replacements, modkills will be modkills.

Lurking:
The following incredibly harsh mechanisms will apply.
  • If the quality of your posting is deemed insufficient by your fellow players and you are in the lower third of postcount, players may vote to "peanut" you by bolding your name within two siren emotes. (Like this: peramene ) If three players vote to peanut a player, I will examine the player's posting and either: modkill the player and usher in their replacement, modkill the player outright, or veto the call.
  • A minimum of 20 posts must be made by Day 1 (which will be 48 72 hours)
  • If you have the lowest post count, that post count must be equal to at least one third of the next highest poster. Obvious attempts at gaming this system will constitute violating it, a judgment which is entirely up to my discretion.
  • I will read every single word. If someone is just making longer posts instead of more posts, I will know and the above rule will bend. I'm the final arbiter on this policy and while the above rule is meant to be a helpful, it is to my satisfaction (relative to the other players, of course) that must be... uh, satisfied.
  • Don't gently caress with me or with other players using this system. I can't even believe I have to say this, but: not fulfilling their flavor role is a valid reason to "siren" a player - not playing Mafia the way you think Mafia should be played, "not playing well" is not.

Abridged:
  • C9++ but with alignment D1; flavor and role D2.
  • Pretend to be somebody else.
  • Don't lurk.
  • Make sure to call 'voting for a modkill due to lurking' as the verb "peanut", as in "It's time to peanut Quidnose."

Please feel free to ask any clarification questions to help me improve these guidelines before we begin.

If you'd like to sign up as a player, please make a post containing the emote.
If you'd like to sign up as a member of The Peanut Gallery, please make a post containing the emote.
If you want to be clear that your intent is to spectate only, a will suffice, but please cease posting in the thread once the game begins. I'll have a conventional spectator doc this time around.

GODDAMMIT SARA I NEED A BREAK

(would've been a sun face, but then I saw you gotta still keep up participation while you're on the list, so I couldn't pull the clever strategy of staying completely silent and looking like I was paying no attention till I replaced in later and solved the whole game from my detached observer perpsective hahaha)

(hopefully the fact that I already put that much thought into the game will console you)

this won't be a peragame so you won't miss out overly; plus I look forward to being able to hardcore jam with you and chaoslord in the spec doc <3

frankly, I think it'll do us both good to watch a game like this unfold
