Post Mafia I: Spirit Tracks (sign-up) • Posted: Mon May 30, 2011 1:01 pm
Here are the rules of Mafia. This is pretty much copied from ZD's thread (with permission), so credit goes to Viral Maze.

Mafia is a RP game of mystery, assumptions, trick plays, double moves, subterfuge and many other big words that describe anything and everything that is sneaky and awesome.

Mafia is composed of two teams and a single Moderator. The Moderator sets up the game, and randomly assigns each player to a team. The players are told what team they are on (Townsfolk or Mafia) in private in a PM. If you are a Townie, you will not know the role of any other player. All you will know is that YOU are a townie, thats it. If you are assigned as Mafia, then you will know who is else is Mafia, and then by process of elimination, you will know who is Townie.

The point of the game is to lynch/kill people until one team (Townie or Mafia) is left standing. Because the Mafia know who else is Mafia, and the Townies don't know who else is Townie, the Mafia start off outnumbered by the Townies usually around 3:1 or 4:1. The Townies must use logic, voting patterns of others, and other small tells to figure out who is Mafia and who is Townie. The Mafia, however, must plant seeds of doubt and confusion and get the Townsfolk to lynch each other.

How to Play
You sign up and then once the game is full you will be PMed by the Game Mod assigning you a team, either Townie or Mafia. If you are Townie, you will not know the identity of anyone else SO TRUST NO ONE. If you are assigned as Mafia, you will know the other Mafia members and you must work together to get the Townies to turn on each other because they OUTNUMBER YOU.

The game starts off in the Day which will last 1 week. During this Day period, everyone discusses who they believe is a Mafia member (also called scum). Mafia will post too, and pretend they are Townies and try to get the other Townies to turn on each other and confuse them. Every member, Townie or Mafia, has a vote for lynching each Day. Post who you want to vote for in the format:
Vote: Player X
If you wish to unvote at anytime, do so by:
Unvote: Player X
You may vote and unvote at ANY TIME during the DAY period. Only during the Day, remember that. Once a majority vote is reach, that player will be lynched NO MATTER WHAT. So if a majority is reached and you decide to unvote for that person, its too late. Player X will be lynched and his identity, Townie or Mafia will be revealed. A player will also be lynched at the end of the week period that constitutes the Day time based on whoever has the most votes, if a majority is not reached.

Once the Day period (after the lynching) is over it becomes the Night. Night won't last long, a day or two at most. During the Night there will be NO ACTIVE DISCUSSIONS. Everyone goes to 'sleep'. This is when the Mafia congregate. During the Night period, and ONLY DURING THE NIGHT the Mafia members will PM the Game Mod one person's name and that person will be killed in the night.

Day will come again, and the identity of the dead Townie will be revealed. Killed in the night by the Mafia. Now the situation gets more dire as Townies will die every night due to the Mafia's ability to night kill, so lynching Mafia becomes more and more important as the game progresses.

This continues until either the Townies remain, or the Mafia stand triumphant.

- DO NOT PM EACH OTHER ABOUT YOUR ROLES. Mystery and assumptions are the point of this game, so if all the Townies band together through PMs you will ruin this game. Play with integrity. Lying is fine though. Mafia members may lie that they are Townie. Deception is a major aspect of this game.
- DO NOT POST INFORMATION FROM OUTSIDE THE GAME. This means any information, revealing or otherwise, that comes from screenshots of the active user list, IM conversations, or anything. If you post such information, you will be ModKilled.
- You may only post in the Day period.
- Vote and unvote in the format: Vote: Player X; Unvote: Player X
- DO NOT REVEAL ANY INFORMATION AFTER YOU HAVE DIED. If you are a Mafia member and you die, do not reveal to anyone who else is Mafia because that information may end up in the hands of the Townies.
- DO NOT EDIT YOUR POSTS. DO NOT EDIT YOUR POSTS. I hope I don't have to repeat it again. This is a cardinal rule. Editing your posts is a no no. If you have something more to say, or need to edit a section of your post then MAKE ANOTHER POST saying what you need to say. If you are caught editing, you will be ModKilled.

Basic Commonly Used Abbreviations/Words
AtE: Appeal to Emotion
BWCS: Best Worst Case Scenario
EBWOP or EBWODP: Edit By Way Of (Double) Post
IoA: Information over Analysis
IwA: Information with Analysis
IGMEOY: I've Got My Eye On You
ISTR: I Seem To Remember
FoS: Finger of Suspicion (When you are not sure enough to vote, use the vote format for this, ie. FoS: Player X)
RVS: Random Voting Stage (usually occurs during the beginning where people vote at random)
Scum: Mafia or anyone else bad (Serial Killer)
Some Info from: http://www.mafiascum.net/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

Roles (basic)
Godfather - Leads the Mafia family and usually is the only one that PMs the Game Mod the nightkill choice. He appears innocent to the cop, and cannot be Nightkilled by any third party.
RoleBlocker - Choose 1 person, per night, and block's their night ability.

Cop - PMs the Game Mod each night 1 person's name, and that person's role and affiliation is revealed to the cop.
Doctor - PMs the Game Mod each night 1 person's name. If that person is a target of a Night Kill, that person is safe, for one night. Doctor cannot save himself, or try to save the same person twice.
RoleBlocker - See RoleBlocker above.
Mason - Usually 2 or so Masons exist. They know who each other are, so they can stick together. Besides that, they have no abilities.
Vigilante - Like the Mafia, he/she has a Night Kill ability that is PMed to the Game Mod. He/she tries to do off the Mafia, but can just as easily kill Townies.
Double-Voter: This person's vote counts as 2 instead of one.

Serial Killer - He/she is out only for themselves. The SK pretends to be a Townie and can vote, much like the mafia, but also has a Night Kill ability. The SK wins when he/she is the only person left standing.

There's more, but my computor wouldn't let me add the rest peacefully. Those are all the rules. The only person who may edit/delete their posts are the mod and co-mod of this game.

Axle will be the mod, and I will be the co-mod. BUT, if Axle can't mod it, then I'll mod it. The sign-ups are here and the actual game will start on another thread. We'll need at least 29 players. But if you want to join and we reach the limit, we'll add you as a replacement for anyone that signed-up, but couldn't play. If you want to join, just say "I'm in"

EDIT: If it wasn't mentioned earlier, then when you vote or unvote,
