Modded by Adam H and Diemo
Adam’s Standard RulesTM:
- You cannot post in this thread unless you are alive and included in the player list.
- You cannot talk about this game outside of this thread, unless in an appropriately titled spoiler in the discussion thread.
- You cannot edit your posts.
- You cannot quote private messages from the mod.
- You cannot lurk.
- You cannot ruin the game for other players.
- You cannot say, imply, or pretend that a hammer vote has been cast unless it is obvious from counting the public votes in the thread.
- If you break any of these rules, you will lose, be removed from the game, and shame will be heaped on you.
Game Specific Rules:
- Players cannot vote for themselves.
- You can unvote before changing votes, but you don’t have to. Only your most recent vote will count.
- Once a player has received the majority of votes (“hammer”), that player is dead. The day ends immediately and players cannot talk or change votes.
- Every player has a single vote and there are no vote-rigging mechanics of any kind.
- Votes will reset if there is a daykill or modkill. A deadline extension would be given as needed.
- The voting mechanics may or may not change at the beginning of each day. The voting rules will be made very clear in each start-of-day post.
- The mod will give the players a deadline for the end of each day. Once the deadline has been reached, players may still post and change votes (unless hammer has been reached). However, once the mod announces the end of day, all votes are finalized and players may not post.
- When the day ends, one player will be lynched. Tiebreakers vary by day and will be given at the beginning of every day.
- Deadlines are bankable. Basically, whatever time is leftover between the hammer and the posted deadline will carry over to the next day.
- There are between 1 and 3 mafia in the game. The mafia all know each other and can privately chat at all times. All other players are town – there are no independents.
- Your alignment will never change.
- Blanc = scum, auguste = town. I might use those terms interchangeably. Or not.
- Mafia wins if all members of the mafia are removed from the game, by lynch or any other kill. Members of the mafia want to be killed.
- Town wins if at any point there are less than two townies remaining alive in the game. Townies want to be killed.
- There are no simultaneous kills in the game, and the game ends immediately when one faction wins.
- Modkills result in the player losing, so this is NOT a valid strategy…
- If all living players on a team (either mafia or town) PM the mod saying that they want to concede, the game will end.
Sample game scenario: if there are three players left, there must be 2 town and 1 scum. For the scum to win, both townies must vote for the scum; for the townies to win, both townies must vote for each other. Players will not be allowed to withhold their votes - this is the reason for “Deadline and Voting Rule #6” which allows me to adjust the voting mechanics as needed.
- The mod will never lie to the players, but he may tell slightly misleading truths (or not!).
- All roles are sane and do exactly what they say, unless the role PM states that there are other possibilities (e.g. a cop may be told that they are either sane or insane).
- There are no roles which necessitate the existence of certain other roles.
- Players with targeting abilities can target themselves unless stated otherwise in their role PM.
- There is no anti-claiming mechanic (other than scum learning the townie power roles, etc).
- Roles and factions will be revealed immediately upon death.
- If there is a listener, relevant chatting groups will be told that there is one.
- In order to balance the game, some players may have received information regarding the setup that is not usually given out. Trust no one!
Sample Role PM:
Vanilla Town: You are a simple townie.
Power: None – you have no power other than your vote.
Win Condition: All members of town win when there are less than two townies remaining alive in the game.
I tried to write the rules in such a way that I can use this template in future games. Therefore, not every unusual rule necessarily applies to this game. Don’t try to read me – you WILL get burned.
Not to beat a dead horse, but this might be worth repeating (no one ever reads the rules anymore): every player wants to lynch or kill members of their team, and you cannot vote for yourself. All players should act like town, and in general you want to lynch one of the towniest players.
