Welcome to Mafia.
~~ How Do I Play? ~~
Mafia is a game of strategy, survival, and deceit. Your goal is to stay alive as long as possible, while eliminating the other side. You have been given a role. All roles are secret (except for Mafias to each other). I strongly advise that you keep your role secret, because you have no idea who you can trust.
The game mechanics work as follows:
The game cycles between two phases-- the Day phase and the Night phase.
First, I will announce who died during the night, then the Day will begin. During the Day, all players will discuss among themselves (WITHIN the new day topic) who they should Lynch (kill/eliminate). Mafias will want to lynch all Townies, and Townies will want to lynch all Mafia players. In order to lynch someone, you must all come to a majority vote.
All votes must be in this format:
Obviously, the player who you want to lynch will replace "Member".
However, if you DO NOT wish to lynch anyone (due to insufficient evidence, etc.) then you will do this:
Lynch: No One
If there is a majority vote to lynch someone, then that player is dead, and CAN NOT talk about this game any more. He is DEAD. Dead people can not talk... unless they are revived. If a majority is not reached , then no one is lynched, and the game automatically goes to the Night Phase. Days last approx. 48 hrs. max.
~~ Night Phase ~~
You have all been given a role. Some of those roles have powers (cop, doctor, mafia), whereas some do not (townie). During the Night phases, depending on what role you have, you may use your power to kill, investigate, protect, etc. You may not talk during the Night Phase (inside or outside of the topic), unless you have a role that requires discussion within your group. If you would like to use your power, then you must tell me in a PM. There is a time limit for the Night Phases. You have approx. 24hrs max. to tell me what you would like to do. If I receive nothing from you, then nothing happens. After the time limit is up, then Day begins again and I announce in a new topic who died and how they died during that night phase.
~~ Rules ~~
-- No deleting posts.
-- No posting at night.
-- No talking outside of this topic (unless your role specifically states you can)
-- NO PMing other persons about your role, except Mafia to Mafia
-- No direct reposting of information that I give you outside of topic. (stuff like screenshots)
-- No spectator posts with content.
-- There may or may not be third parties with separate win conditions from the town/werewolves.
-- Don't try to cheat or break the game in any way. Use common sense.
-- PLAY TO WIN. Failure to at least put in an effort ruins the game for everyone else. Playing poorly is fine, and to an extent expected, but sabotaging your side deliberately or through massive apathy will get you modkilled.
-- You do not need to post "in character" or do anything special regarding flavor.
-- Days last approx. 48 hrs. max.
-- Nights last approx. 24 hrs. max.
The Town wins when there are no non-Town-aligned players left.
Mafia win when there are no Townies left, or when they put the game in a situation where that outcome is inevitable. Usually this occurs when they make up 50% or more of the remaining population.
~~ Roles ~~
Here are a few of the standard roles that everyone should be aware of:
Mafia -- They are the minority. They work together to kill everyone. They have the power (as a group) to kill one person every night.
Cop -- Townie that has the power to investigate a player's role or alignment once every night. They may or may not choose to share the information they get during the night. If an Investigator shares his information in the topic, then he will become a target for the Werewolves. An investigator can also use his information to role-claim, which could save him from a lynch.
Doctor -- Townie with the power to protect one person from death every night. They are not allowed to protect the same person more than twice.
Townie -- Player aligned with the Town. Has no special power.
Mayor -- Townie with the power to stop a lynching.
Signing up happens here
The game starts with the Night Phase, thus meaning a Townie gets killed right away.
Game starts when we have a few entrants.
