To bring light to the darkness, whether that darkness be ignorance, injustice, apathy, or stagnation.




Hawkins: I've got it! I've got it! The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true! Right?
Griselda: Right. But there's been a change: they broke the chalice from the palace!
Hawkins: They broke the chalice from the palace?
Griselda: And replaced it with a flagon.
Hawkins: A flagon...?
Griselda: With the figure of a dragon.
Hawkins: Flagon with a dragon.
Griselda: Right.
Hawkins: But did you put the pellet with the poison in the vessel with the pestle?
Griselda: No! The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon! The vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true!
Hawkins: The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon; the vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true.
Griselda: Just remember that.
- The Court Jester, 1955

Hello, and welcome to Winefia - A Chalice Full of Poison, a Mafia setup designed for between 16-24 people, preferably 19-23. Itís the spiritual heir to two games from other sites I played on back in the day, and Iíve had it in the works for a while now. I donít want to say too much about it, but this game is designed to stoke paranoia and mistrust, and is absolutely not a vanilla-heavy mafia game. It will begin soon after Nat 20's Yu-Gi-Oh Mafia ends.

Podima has given it a once over, and the incomparable Bifauxnen has looked at this setup once and laughed at it. Any anger you may feel about the game should be directed their way, not because they deserve it, but because I'm the one writing this post. Youíll want to read the game notes, lurker mechanics, day length, and lynches sections below. Oh, and please donít sign up just to lurk.

Game Specific Notes:
  1. There are killing roles.
  2. There are no cults, or cult-likes.
  3. There are no viruses.
  4. There are no jesters, or jester-likes.
  5. This is not a bastard game.
  6. There are no sanity mechanics.
  7. This is not a no-flip game.
  8. Roleblocks will block peopleís entire roles, including any passive effects.
  9. You will want to read your win condition carefully.
  10. Use common sense: donít post after seeming day actions, donít fake said day actions, don't edit your posts, donít post your role PM or direct mod communication, donít talk about the game outside this thread (and any game-specific channels) to people, donít post in-thread after your death, donít post anything game-related after hammer and before game closure, please don't be overly mean to other people, drunkposting is fun but probably a bad idea, no codes, the mod has absolute authority to modkill you at any point or otherwise take corrective measures, etc. If you follow normal mafia etiquette, you'll be good!
  11. Feel free to PM me if you have questions! Pre-game, in-game, whatever: if you're confused about something or believe something was done in error, I really hope you bring it to my attention.
Lurker Mechanics:
You must have 3 posts ē the number of out-of-game days at the end of any given day. This is waived for D1, though the days do tick up during D1. (So: 15 posts by EOD2, 21 by EOD3, 27 by EOD4, etc).

If you ever fail to fulfill this condition, you are freely lynchable by majority vote (as tabulated by hand). If you do manage to get back on track after becoming freely lynchable, and are not, well, lynched, you will no longer be freely lynchable. This is done by appending ď##Lurkvote [x]Ē to any post: if the majority of players do that and you donít get back on track by then...well, donít lurk.This will not end the day, and you will be considered dead as soon as (if) a majority is reached, so if you want to get back on track, convince people before they lurkvote you!

If a player who was previously posting gives the mod a good reason for why they arenít posting, this will all be waived for them. (Some examples: ďBeing scumĒ is not a good reason. ďBusy with workĒ is. ďBeing AustralianĒ is a maybe, depending on if the thread turbo lynches.) The goal here is to make sure only the laziest of players ever fall victim.

Day Length:
All day phases besides D1 are ~48 hours in length, ending at 10:00 PM Eastern.
D1 is ~72 hours in length.
All night phases are ~24 hours in length, unless all actions are in and tabulated beforehand, in which case day will start whenever the mod wakes up and posts daystart. If you need an extension for whatever reason, please PM the mod. (Or DM her on discord!)

Lynches:
Lynches occur by majority vote. So do any ďfree lynchesĒ stemming from lurker mechanics, though the latter type will not end the day.
