MAFIA 45 GAME THREAD - BETWEEN A ROCK AND A...ROCK

#1 Post by e.m.c^42 » Thu Apr 25, 2019 10:00 pm

INTRODUCTION

Mafia is an educated guessing game of epic proportions. The objective of the game (for the town majority) is to kill all mafia members before they outnumber the rest of the town. The game is typically very active, so the thread will get big quickly. However, it is essential to read the thread to play the game.

=====
RULES
=====


0) The GMs reserve the right to adjudicate individual scenarios that arise during the course of the game at his or her discretion.
1) All players must vote at least once per game day, and post a game-related post at least twice per game day.
2) All players are forbidden from posting screenshots of their role PMs.
3) All players are forbidden from using encryption unless explicitly allowed by the setup.
4) All players are forbidden from using non-sanctioned PMing.
5) All spectators and players who have been eliminated are forbidden from posting on all in-game QT threads (For this game, the mafia night chat)
6) All players are forbidden from cheating.
7) All players are required to play to win and are not allowed to attempt to sabotage their team - however, seemingly self-sabotaging actions may be allowed as long as there is an endgame plan that is aiming for a win.
8) Players and/or teams may not concede the game in public. You can most certainly try to concede, or fake concede publicly, but the GM's will ignore it.
9) No players or spectators may +1 a player's post. However, +1'ing the GMs will make them smile :)
10) All players must follow the typical webDiplomacy rules and forum rules.
11) Any issues, concerns, or complaints should be directed toward the GMs only. For concerns that require escalation beyond the GMs, contact the moderators.
12) Violations of these rules may carry a penalty at the discretion of the GMs.

=============
ELABORATION
=============

0) Given a lack of omniscience, the GM cannot create a rule to resolve all possible scenarios pre-emptively. To compensate for this, the GM is permitted to resolve a given scenario however they see fit, within the remit of the rules listed above, in the interest of all participants. The GM will resolve all scenarios as closely as possible to the intention of the rules, and will present an explanation regarding the adjudication to the greatest possible detail (which does not compromise anything in-game) and as closely in accordance with the written rules as possible.

1) You MUST cast a vote at least once during each day phase. You may vote and then 'unvote' (see below) if you change your mind as the Day progresses, however you may not end the phase with an 'unvote' in place. Anyone violating this rule will be modkilled unless there are very extenuating circumstances. Ending the day with a vote on “No Lynch” is permitted. During each day phase, every player MUST make at least two game-related posts. The GMs will use reasonable discretion when applying this rule.

2) All role PMs have been posted in the setup information. The point of this rule is to forbid "gaming" the role PMs to determine alignments; after all, the fun of this game is reading people, not outguessing the GM.

3) Encryption is defined as posting an encoded message on public channels that an average person would require outside software or other tools to decode. It is perfectly acceptable to leave "hidden messages" in your posts (for example, spelling out "I AM THE COP" with the first letters of every sentence), but as a rule of thumb, if you don't think the average user could decode it without a decryption service, don't post it.

4) All in-game communications should be kept within the thread. Only GM endorsed QuickTopic threads can be used for communicating with one another outside of the main game thread; aside from this, there should be no other forms of private messaging between players. You may PM the GM with questions or instructions.

5) Players who have been removed from the game are no longer playing the game, and will not be permitted to comment on it in private messages or comment threads. A special QuickTopic "God Thread" will be opened for individuals who wish to spectate on the game, or players who have been eliminated. Use this channel to discuss the game while it is still ongoing.

6) This is a catch-all rule intended to preserve the spirit of the game. If you are considering saying or doing something that may be against the spirit of the game, message the GM about it before saying/doing it and the GM will let you know whether it is allowed or not.

To clarify further: Players may not copy and paste any game related mechanics. Players may not doctor, and create fake game related mechanics. Players may not share personal correspondence between GM to player under any circumstances. The GM will not confirm any claims, or adjudicate based upon anything that could easily be sorted out through questioning and evidentiary circumstance.

7) This rule simply means that your actions should in some conceivable way advance your win condition as stated in your role PM. This rule is somewhat subjective, because the difference between a mistake and sabotage is sometimes hard to determine; the GM will exercise caution and restraint in observing this rule. This also means that if you need to leave the game for any reason, you should not simply drop out, but should message me first so I can determine the best course of action.

8) If someone wishes to concede defeat, they must PM the GM, or post in their relevant QT thread for the GM to check it over. Public concessions are not permitted.

9) You are not permitted to click the "+1" on any other player's in-game posts. Giving +1s to the GM, by contrast, is actively encouraged.

PENALTIES

The penalty for breaking one of the above rules is decided at the GM’s discretion, up to and including immediate removal from the game and/or sanctions from future games. Removal and/or sanction are instruments of last resort and will be used only if absolutely necessary. Sanctions such as future bans will be determined by the consensus of the active player base after the game has concluded. A player removed from the game may or may not have their role revealed on removal, depending on the circumstances surrounding their removal.

ROLE ACTIONS
If you have any actions to take, please PM your action the GM. Night actions will be processed at the end of the night and can be changed up to that point.

====================
MISCELLANEOUS NOTES
====================

SPAM:
As long as the spam is tasty, spam all you want :)
For example, excessively copy-pasting the peterbot, or the bee movie, is frowned upon. But, writing 30k of vore webdipper fanfiction, or various songs and battle chants for victory, is quite allowed. However, do keep in mind that spam in excess will lead players to vote and kill you, for not producing content.

PLAYER SILENCES:
Players that have other participants on their mute list are asked to remove them for the duration of this game. Disputes stemming from outside of this game should not carry over into the gameplay. If they do, the GM reserves the right to address these issues and potentially remove or sanction players if it becomes a disruption.

FORUM SILENCES:

If a player is silenced on the forum by the site moderators/admins, an alternate will take their place for the duration of their silence. The silenced player will then have the option to take their position back over or leave it in the hands of the alternate. As long as the silence does not stem from actions involving the mafia thread, there will be no in-game sanctions for a forum silence.

REPLACEMENTS
A player wishing to drop out may be replaced at the GM's discretion. Individuals wishing to serve as potential replacements must NOT join the out-of-game God QT. Replacement is not guaranteed.

TURN DURATION

This game’s Day phases will last 48 hours and Night phases will last 24 hours, unless cut short by in-game mechanics (e.g., hammer). Extensions may be granted at the GM’s discretion, but don’t count on it. Phase shifts will be at 20:30 UTC - convert to your own local time, and do try to remember it. Game starts at the beginning of Day 1.

======
VOTING
======


There are three types of voting within this game: collective voting to execute perceived Mafia in Day phases, collective voting to end a Day or Night phase, and Mafia voting to kill town members in Night phases.

“Lynch” vote: The first level of voting is for whom you intend to kill. Notate this vote with a pair of hash symbols before your intended vote target. (e.g., ##VOTE Percy Williams) You do not need to spell out your intended target's username fully; as long as at least the first three characters are used, and that the GM can understand who you're referencing. In the event of a tie during an execution vote, no one shall be killed.

PLEASE NOTE: If you do not use double hashtags your vote will not be counted, for reasons of fairness but also because it is unlikely the GM will notice, and for peterbot to pick up: this rule thus prevents vote miscounts.

Must Vote: At the end of the Day phase, all participating players must have their vote on a candidate. You may ##VOTE and then ##UNVOTE if you change your mind as the Day progresses, however you may not end the phase with an ##UNVOTE in place. Anyone violating this rule will be modkilled unless there are very extenuating circumstances. Ending the day with a vote on “No Lynch” is permitted.

Hammer Vote: The second level of voting is whether or not to employ the hammer mechanic. By default, days are set to 48 hours long, and nights to 24 hours long; however, players may instead elect to activate the hammer mechanic. Notate this vote with a pair of hashes before the word end. (EX: ##END). The day will end as soon as a majority of players are voting to endhammer the same player. If you are not able to vote before the hammer is dropped, you will not be penalized for failing to vote during that day. However, the GMs are new to peterbot, and hope that unless it's in endgame, to not hammer excessively :)

Mafia Vote: The third level of voting refers to Mafia members choosing their factional NK (nightkill) targets during Night phases. The mafia members will use their separate QuickTopic thread to discuss this. Please make your votes in bold, like so: kill Zultar (<b> kill Zultar </b>). Mafia NK will be decided by majority vote. In the event of a tie, the oldest vote will break the tie.

Role PM's
=========

VT:
You are [caveman name] of the illustrious, most true and rightful residers of the valley, an East Cave VT! Each day you may choose to start a flash mob kill with your fellow East cave dwellers on whichever neighbor smells the strangest. At night, you might also find yourself smoking the magical herb or having private cave time with an mysterious, high-vitality caveman.

-----

Doc:
You are [caveman name] of the illustrious, most true and rightful residers of the valley, an East Cave V….doc. You are someone with a secret cave, into which you may take whoever captures your heart or fancy, unless you get drugged and seduced away beforehand. Taking someone into your secret cave also has the side effect of making them safe from the dastardly West caver assassination, as the two of you are alone and sequestered away from the rest at night. Due to the unfortunately small size of the cave, unless you’re in there alone, you stick out and are unprotected. In addition, being that sort of guy, you never take the same person with you in a row. You can also go into your cave alone if nobody loves you - but this never happens two days in a row either - after all, there are so many people to get private time with. Each day you may choose to start a flash mob kill with your fellow East cave dwellers on whichever neighbor smells the strangest.

-----

Goon:
You are [caveman name] of the illustrious, most true and rightful residers of the valley, a former West caver goon who is now infiltrated in the East cave. Each day, you pretend to be one of those savage, ignoble East cavers (the horrors, you think to yourself, that they actually live like this). You act and sniff with the best of them, and may choose to join in on their flash mob kills. At night, you might also find yourself smoking the magical herb or having private cave time with an mysterious, high-vitality caveman. When the sun is down, you can talk with your fellow West cavers here:

Hooker:
You are [caveman name] of the illustrious, most true and rightful residers of the valley, a former West caver stoner who is now infiltrated in the East cave. Each day, you pretend to be one of those savage, ignoble East cavers (the horrors, you think to yourself, that they actually live like this). You act and sniff with the best of them, and may choose to join in on their flash mob kills. However, you are also the possessor of the magical herb, and have cultivated a nice little patch of your own. During the night, you can seduce someone to share with the new invention of “fire” and smoke the shit outta that magical plant together - this will cause them to forget about any previous engagements, and spend the night with you. You also might get some private cave time with a high vitality caveman. When the sun is down, you can also talk with your fellow West cavers here:

Percy woke up. He blinked. And blinked again. He thought he was dreaming, but alas, he was not. As it turns out, there really was such a thing as spontaneous teleportation. Silent, non-awareness inducing spatial-and-temporal teleportation - he was quite sure he went to sleep the previous night in his own bed. However, he was most certainly currently on a slightly damp patch of grass, which was yellowed in ripples around him. He thought about screaming, but really, it was too early for that, and he hadn’t had his morning cup of tea yet. Screaming before drinking your tea is bad for the vocals. As he looking around at his environment, he saw that he was close to the top of a hill. With no other direction or purpose readily apparent, he climbed the hill to see a little valley with caves on each end.

At each of these caves were various humanoids, gathered at the mouth of the caves shouting at each other.

“Ohg ogg! goh ah wei ahn neh vah cum bac! Yooh ghug daii goo ak foo wahk reer”

“Why yes, we find your presence very distasteful as well, and consider you a scourge to this land”.

After sharpening their clubs and weighting their spears, they charged into the center of the valley, and mixed passionately with the opposing group. After a bunch of confusion, and a lot of popcorn consumed by Percy, each of the groups retreated to their respective caves. In the East cave they did a post battle foot count (using the new invention “counting”) and came back with more than the first foot count! There were West cavers among them!

At this point, EMC suddenly fell out of the sky. Percy, at this point, couldn’t even be bothered to blink. He needed tea. Not the strange liquid from a tree that was almost, but not quite entirely unlike tea, but tea. The lifeblood of many a true persons, unlike those coffee heathens.

His eyes were getting a bit dry.

EMC was a clumsy name to say or think, so he decided to just autocorrect him mentally into Einstein. Percy, being a sensitive pseudo-Australian chap, immediately detected the residual aura of a just-consumed tea drinker on the former UFO, now identified as Einstein. How he knew it was Einstein without having ever met him before, he had no idea. Making haste, he cornered the guy on a protruding rock and interrogated him about the tea. As Percy poked Einstein’s unconscious body with a stick, in the valley below, the dangerous hunt for the infiltrators had begun -

GAME HAS BEGUN! You may start shitposting.

##GM Note
In the player list, yes, I'm aware that it's not electric, it's electronic - but oh well

For the new players; there exists a wonderful creation known as peterbot at http://mafia.peterlund.se/e/web/front_page

It will probably be very helpful.

For an entrance, I would like to share with you beautiful people a truth that I've recently discovered. It's about our jambalaya cooking musician, brainbomb.

A) So you know how he modded last game and we had a QT as mafia. Well, bomb appeared there as 'brainbiscuts' which makes me think of sweet treats.

B) On a different platform, bomb revealed that he's the owner of a ginger ass. Which confirms that he's one of those rare precious redheads out there.

Putting A and B to together, I've come to the conclusion that brainbomb is in fact a tasty gingerbread man.

So an impulse to vote... Without an impulse to vote FOR someone? Sounds a bit scummy...
I'll follow my impulse 😁

Wow, we must be setting some sort of record for non-activity here.

##Vote Flavius for being too excited. Clearly excitement is pure mafia motivation - there are no PRs so nobody can be excited to be town.

Flavius, anything to say for yourself before we bludgeon you to death?

Quick note: There are some illegal +1's in this thread. I know because I just removed mine.. Contrary to the mini-game, +1's are not allowed!
