This is a game of Mafia for nine players, where some things that take place pregame define a lot of how the actual game will shake out.

  • Standard Mafia rules apply, you know the drill.
  • Active participation in forum mafia from all players makes for a more entertaining experience for everyone, and I will not hesitate to modkill players for inactivity. If you find that you're unable to keep up with the pace of the game or if something comes up that will affect your availability, please PM me so that I can look for replacements rather than detract from the game by extending the replacement process. I will prod inactive players via PM, but your warnings will be limited.
  • I've taken the liberty of explicitly stating your role in general Mafia terminology (either via bold text in your role PM or an explictly worded sentence) to minimize confusion for both you and for any rolecops in the game. Please note that this is a generic block of text that will appear in the ruleset of any Mafia game I run on Something Awful and should not be taken to confirm or deny the existence or nonexistence of any role including but not limited to rolecops and vanilla townies.
  • If you would like to sign up as a replacement or if you would like to view the observer doc after the game has started, please PM me and I will take appropriate action. Please keep in mind that if you choose to spectate, you will be ineligible to replace into the game as the observer doc will have setup and player alignments visible.
  • There will be some interesting and unique game mechanics, and the game may not be entirely balanced. This, as above, is entirely in keeping with the game's concept and design.
  • Finally, I encourage everyone to keep in mind that we're ultimately here to play a silly Internet party game. That said, if you feel that you can't deal with another player on a personal level, I encourage you to make that decision before the game starts to avoid replacements down the road.
  • The town alignment in this game is HUMAN-aligned.

Further role information and caveats about How I Define Roles are as such:
  • Failure results will be reported when targeting fails. This means that that you will receive a failure result only if your action was unable to target. This would include things like being jailed or roleblocked, or if your target is jailed. If you succeed in targeting a player, even if your action is ineffective, you will receive a success notification if you have a role that would normally receive a success notification.
  • To be clear: if you have the sentence "You have no special abilities, save for your power of persuasion" in your role PM, that's my way of saying that you have no night actions.

When you sign up, please also PM me two numbers; the first between 1 and 5 (this defines your preferred power role distribution in the game, 1 being mostly vanilla and 5 being role madness) and the second between 1 and 4 (I'm not going to tell you what this one is).

Important caveat: There will be a Mafia game proper here in the interest of intellectual honesty, but in the interest of mod-being-honest-to-his-players honesty Votefinder will probably behave rather strangely this game, deadlines will be perhaps longer than normal, and there may be a lag time before the game itself starts.

Unfortunately, signups are too far down the Votefinder roadmap to make it into this game. Still gotta do that by hand.

Player List:
  1. b-minus1
  2. Hal Incandenza
  3. hexwren
  4. Murmur Twin
  5. OMGVBFLOL
  6. peramene
  7. Podima
  8. sentimental snail
  9. Natural 20

There are no other players in this game. Despite any flavor you may encounter, this isn't a bastard setup - it's a standard Mafia game. There is no reward for solving flavor puzzles.

The game has started. Discord is available here.

Current Anti-Lurker Mechanic: 5 posts per 24-hour period starting 8pm 12/6 or receive a Hated stack.

Discord. I'm doing neat stuff with discord roles so it should be fine to post publicly. Probably. If it's not I'll kick people out who shouldn't be in it.

Yes. I'll assign roles to people who need them (including observer roles if people die), you'll only get to see channels that you should see, if any.

Oh, dear. I don't like the look of this game at all. I don't know what FL was thinking with this setup. I'm sure a robot could do a better job of building a setup than this. Still, I guess we can try to make it work, can't we?

Best of luck, everyone. May the best team win.

The next deadline is REDACTED - that's REDACTED from now.
