    Default Scales of Justice - a Mafia Game

    Alrighty. Gonna do this. Or, something like it.

    Sign up for some Mafia goodness. Do it. You know you want to.

    Currently, eight players have signed up:

    01. starlalilymoon
    02. kmohyudin
    03. Fizzie
    04. Kitsune Inferno
    05. Shuhan
    06. Huschel
    07. kevo_koma
    08. No swords style best style

    I'll give people about two weeks to sign up, then we'll get the ball rolling.

    Hidden below are the general rules/expectations for my Mafia games:

    Hidden:

    This is a Mafia Game! As such, it brings with it certain norms/rules/expectations:
    • This is a Game! A really fun Game! And Games are all about having fun! Try your best to have fun and keep the mood light, no matter how heated the discussion may get.
    • This is a forum-based Game, and anything you post can and will be regarded by the other players with the utmost scrutiny. For this reason, be careful about what you type in your posts. Furthermore, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO EDIT YOUR POSTS ONCE THEY HAVE BEEN MADE. This is a serious rule. Automatically merged posts are okay!
    • Players are not allowed to PM each other regarding the Game. If you have any questions, then please PM me.
    Phew. That doesn't seem so bad. Now for the nitty-gritty.
    • There are at least two separate factions. Usually, these factions are the (1) Mafia and (2) Town.
    • At the start of the game, each player will receive a separate Role PM that details which faction they belong to as well as any special Role(s) they may have.
    • Some Roles come with additional abilities, allowing them to passively or actively perform special actions during the game.
    • Players are NEVER ALLOWED to copy/paste Role PMs into this thread. That said, paraphrasing is totally acceptable.
    • Some players may also know which factions other players belong to (e.g. Mafia members usually know who the other Mafia members are).
    • Some players may also be able to privately discuss the game among themselves without other players seeing. Usually, the Mafia will have a separate chat in which they can converse with each other during the game.
    • As the game progresses, the various factions will compete to achieve their individual win conditions. Usually these conditions are (1) to become at least 50% of the town and (2) to eliminate all threats to the town. Win conditions will be explained to each player in their Role PM.
    • Players remain in the game until they are "killed". Usually, players are killed when either (1) they are shot or (2) a majority of the town votes to lynch them.
    • Once a player is killed, they MUST NOT make any posts in this thread until the end of the game. As moderator, I will provide a separate chat for killed players to talk among themselves as well as any spectators who might be interested.
    • When one of the factions reaches their win condition, the game will be over! We can all finally decompress, laugh, and chat about how much fun the whole experience was.
    But wait, there's more!
    • The game is divided into two distinct phases; Day and Night.
    • The Day phases will last for 48 hours at a maximum. As moderator, I will announce when the Day phases begin and end.
    • Each Day, the living players are allowed to cast votes in order to lynch the other players. To cast a vote, players must make a post with the text, "Vote Lynch: [Player Name]". To cancel a vote, players must make a post with the text, "Unvote". If a player wishes to change their vote from one player to another, then they must first Unvote.
    • During the Day phases, all living players are encouraged to post in this thread, chat with each other, and scumhunt. Usually, the only way that the town can win is by questioning each other, determining which players represent threats to the town, and then voting to lynch them.
    • On any given Day, once a majority lynch vote has been achieved, the targeted player will be killed and the Day will end. This occurs even if the phase did not last for 48 hours.
    • Once a majority lynch vote has been achieved, please stop posting and wait for me to make the Day End post. Once I have made the Day End post, no more posting is allowed until the next Day phase begins.
    • If the town is unable to achieve a majority lynch vote before the 48 hours are up, then the Day will end without a lynch.
    • In extreme circumstances, I will allow a Day phase to last longer than 48 hours, but only if a majority of the living players post "Vote: Extend Day" before the phase ends.
    Then, the sun sets...
    • Night phases immediately follow Day phases.
    • Every Night phase will last for 24 hours at a minimum. This is to give all of us some down time to (1) decide what each player will do and (2) live our real lives. Forum-based Games aren't everything, you know?
    • Each Night, absolutely NO ONE is allowed to post in this thread.
    • During the Night phases, any living player with an active ability from their Role is allowed to send me a PM describing what action(s) they would like to perform during the Night. Usually, this means targeting another player to perform a Night Kill or Investigation.
    • Players are encouraged to PM me with their Night action within the first 12 hours of a given Night phase.
    • By the end of each Night phase, I will resolve all of the player night actions as appropriate, and then I'll post a new Day phase beginning. And then the cycle repeats.
    There you have it, everything I expect for you to know as we get into the Game.

    Alright, I be the first to sign up!

    This sounds interesting and exciting! Can't wait!

    [I put the link in my signature to hopefully get more players as well!]

    Edit: Now, I'm thinking of A Hat in Time and the line "Down with the Mafia!" xD

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Fizzie, I'm brand new to AP, and also friends with Starla. I'd love to sign up for some Mafia fun!

    I have a lot of experience playing similar hidden role games that use cards instead of moderators, such as The Resistance, Secret Hitler and One Night Ultimate Werewolf, but I've never played anything quite like this before. So I'll be a bit of a noob in some ways and not in others. But no matter what, it looks like a lot of fun (I read through the whole last thread to get and idea of what it's like and it seems great!) I'm looking forward to meeting you all and hopefully not get murdered!

    Heyy! Yeah if you've played One Night Werewolf, you should have a general understanding of the concept. (Mafia and Werewolf classic are identical)

    Also sign me up!

    That makes five! Four more players and we'll have a solid game, though more than that couldn't hurt.
