This game is a disaster, and youre all invited to the party. I have a bunch of really terrible (or genius, depending on your point of view) roles that I wanted to let fly. Many are convoluted. At least one is stolen wholesale from a game only one person here will have ever even heard of. Do not play this game if you require balanced setups. Do not play this game if you are afraid of quasi-bastard moderation (no outright lying, but definitely not a setup that just runs on its own.) There is technically a puzzle in this game, but for most players, it is a game that can be won in a...semi-normal fashion.

Overall Rules

Normal mafia rules exist, and even though they are going to be violated by many of the roles in this game, please do follow them unless your role has you break them. If you think Im messing something up, feel free to message me. (That is a link, by the way; go read it if you need a refresher.)

You may, however, continue posting until the start of the night phase. Be aware that the night starts as soon as I actually post the flip or when votefinder says it does, whichever comes first.

You are not free once you have died. There may be mechanisms for restoring dead players to life, or for the dead to contribute in other ways. Do not talk about this game even if youre dead in it.

Votefinder, while around, will by design not actually work correctly for this game. Ill be tallying votes myself alongside SKs precious code child.

Lurking and Scheduling

Days are ~48 hours. Nights are ~24 hours, or until Ive resolved all actions.

Dont sign up just to lurk, please. If you are ever under 7 x the previous in-game day # in terms of posts, you will be freely, publicly daykillable by any other player. (EX: On day 3, if you have less than 14 posts, you can be freely slaughtered, like the coward you are.) This is a dayaction using the format ##lurkerkill [player], where [player] is whoever the lurker dork happens to be.

You escape this status by...posting more. Get back to the threshold, and you're safe again. Spamming will be frowned on, but not stopped. If you have extraordinary circumstances, Ill happily listen. I will try to make clear who is killable at the end of each day.

Role Stuff

This is role madness, but, like, actual madness. Call it setup madness, it's more accurate. Scumhunting is still worth it, though.

Roles will, aside from the first 2, be chosen by player draft from a limited subset of the list of role names. The role draft order has been randomized by signup slot. Trust me, this makes more sense in practice.

Dont massclaim. In fact, you probably won't want to claim at all. Hes here to stop you. This is your only warning.

Win Conditions

Almost everyone starts with at least two copies of their own win condition. If this is confusing, think of a win condition like a ring, and whoever wears that ring can win with whatever condition that ring gives them. Nearly everyone starts with two or more such rings.

If you share anyone elses win condition, you both win if that win condition is fulfilled. You may or may not remain in the game once you have won. You may be able to win twice over.

If you have contradictory win conditions, you win based on whichever you have more of.

If your win conditions do not contradict, or if you have an equal amount of contradictory conditions, you may win with either.

If you would ever drop to zero win conditions, you are treated as having your last held win condition. It can no longer be taken or copied.

The generic town wincondition is: You are a member of the town, and you win if there no longer exist any antagonistic elements among the living.

Everything Else

Everyone who wants to be involved, either observing or playing, must join the following discord: https://discord.gg/EsbrfQp

Feel absolutely free to ask questions privately if any of this doesnt make sense. It might still not, after I answer, but Ill do my best.

The game will start once all slots are filled and I can work up the willpower to steer this metaphorical titanic into a metaphorical iceberg.

When all 20 people join the game, join the discord server, and allow me to contact them on there for the role draft thing I'm doing.

Game'll probably start when everyone has their role PMs, though I might not start until monday b/c super bowl
