Welcome to mafia. This is going to be what we call a "Vanilla" game, named after the tasty ice cream for being plain and with no weird twists that the pros like to eat, I mean use.
Here are the basic rules:
Gojoe in the 'How to play Mafia. A noobs guide.' thread wrote:There are 2 teams. Townies and Mafia.
The townies have no power besides the power of deduction. The Townie wants to rid the town of the mafia scum. Every day the townie can vote for one person by posting Vote:Person x (note that this must be bolded) if you later decide to switch your vote, you do so by typing UNVOTE vote:person y (note again that this must be bolded). Townies do not know who anyone else are.
The mafia's team usually is about one third the size of the townies. The mafia know who each other are, and try to blend in with the townies. Their goal is to rid the town of all the townies. They can vote and unvote just like normal townies. The only difference is that at night time the mafia can communicate (via pm's to eachother) and between all of the mafia, they can decide to kill someone at night.
Now you may be wondering what this voting does. When a player has MORE than half the votes, they are lynched. Right after the lynching happens, it becomes night time.
The town wins when the last mafia member is wiped out. The mafia win when they control HALF of the votes.
The cop at night can investigate one person. They are told what alignment they are.
The cop is the only special role we will be using.
I will send out your role to you by PM (Private Message) and we will begin.
Additional rules: Roleclaiming yourself, saying you are the cop, is ok if you do not quote exactly what was said in your role pm. Paraphrasing is ok.
No time limits in this game.
No discussion of the game outside of this thread. At all. Unless you want to put up spoilers in the Discussion thread you can only talk about the game in this thread. That includes in real life or in the chat room.
No editing your posts. If you should feel the urge to edit something you've just posted you can only edit it by sending another post.
Basically all of the rules as laid out in the Newbs Guide need to be applied. I will not hesitate to modkill any serious rule infractions.
