Recommended Posts

It is still the May Day celebration setting, but the basic game mechanics will be rather vanilla....yes, there are not enough players to do the weird stuff, so it will be a straight up vanilla game.

[size=4][b]Role List [/b][/size]


[b]Psychopathic faction[/b] - Evil

[b]Monk/Nun[/b] - killers - You are a Monk or Nun that has joined the May day Celebrations. You have been ordered to Win the contest and be named Stag King / May Queen, before revealing your true Catholic Faith and ruining the Pagan festival for all. However you have your own special Plans on how your gonna destroy the ceremony, and its doubtful that your Holy Brothers/Sisters would approve.

[b]Pagan faction[/b] - Innocent

[b]Maiden[/b] - RI You are a shy Virgin. Your head is full of hero's and stories, and you long for your prince to come and rescue you. (not that you have been imprisoned by an angry dragon / Witch, but sometimes you wish you was, just so you could be rescued)

[b]Young Man[/b] – RI. You hope being made Stage King would give you courage to hold a maidens hand. You feel inadequate as you have heard the maidens talking about dashing hero’s and you think you must be a disappointment to any woman.


The Following Roles may or may not be used can only belong to the Pagan Faction. Any converted Pagan will loose any powers provided by their role PM.


[b]Chaperone[/b] - healer. You are a fussing older person who insists on watching over the younger contenders to make sure they do not loose their purity thus defiling the festival. This role will be limited.

[b]Busy Body[/b] - Guard You are such a nosey person, your always prying into other peoples business, even into the wee hours. Thus you can stop a person from being converted. Not that they would ever thank you. After all you just kept them up all night talking about their Mothers in grown toe nail and their Grandfather's gammy knee.

[b]Gossip[/b] - finder

You are a big fan of heat magazine. Infact you are a big fan of gossip. You know the best way to be first with new gossip is to listen to other peoples conversations and snoop through their personal belongings. This role will be limited.



the following Roles could belong to any faction in conjunction with another role or as a single role. Any role may or may not be used.

[b]Geek[/b] - Bullet Proof You a Geek, you spend your free time glued to a PC, playing games over the internet. You may love maths, have a law degree, be able to quote even every word of the Star Wars Films and believe you have Jedi Insight ( a good Gut). Maybe you even keep a few rocks as Pets (they are a lot easier to care for than Goldfish). And you probably own some funny shaped dice. Your Parents worry that life will pass you by - but at least if any sex maniac should be found in your Bed or axe wielding psychopaths, your be sitting safely at your PC.
You protection may be of limited use.

[b]Bully [/b]- Solider You grew up as the school yard Bully. Everyone was scared of you. However now you are amongst strangers, who do not know your reputation. Like all Bullies you are a coward deep down. You will only pick on someone when you’re both alone. This means that if you are among the last two surviving players, you can bully them into submission - or just flip out and kill them.

[b]Transvestite[/b] Anyone who's role PM indicates you to be a different Sex than your Alts Avatar suggests. The Mods never make mistakes, so if this applies to you then the Mods made you this way because we are evil. Complaining will only result in an embarrassing Avatar.


No role that is not listed in this post will be used

This Game will [b]NOT[/b] have a CF





[b]This game will be Alted. You will not be allowed to reveal your Alts. Please make sure you read and understand the Alt rules (post # 8 )[/b]

RULES

All players must ..

A1) Have an account on the mafia discussion board, with the same account name as on this board.

A2) Log in and view the thread and the discussion board anonymously at all times, unless they have informed the mods that this is not possible for technical reasons

A3) Post at least once every 24 hours. Any player who has not posted within the last 24 hours will be automatically modkilled, whether or not the mods announce this on the thread.

The mods may grant extensions to this limit in some cases (if so, they will give details in a later post). However, if they have not posted on the thread to announce an extension before the 24 hour limit is reached, no extension will be granted, whatever may have been said elsewhere. Please contact the mods as early as possible if you wish to request an extension.

A4) Send in role prescribed night actions (including the desire to take no action) within the time limit

A5) Treat everybody else playing with courtesy and respect

A6) Make any edits the mods request of them as soon as possible, whether or not they believe that the posts need to be edited.

A7) Contact the game mods as soon as possible if they feel you are at risk of breaking a rule or fear they or another person may have already done so.

Players must not ...

B1) Act in any way intended to reduce the chance of their faction achieving its win conditions. (However, should all surviving members of a faction agree that they wish to resign and end the game early, they may do so by PMing the mods privately, without stating their intentions on-thread until the mods post to announce that the game is over.)

B2) Discuss the game with any other living players outside this game thread except when told they may do so in their role PMs.

B3) Reveal any information about the game at all in any other thread than this one, or in any other forum (including message boards and chat rooms) where it may be seen by a living player.

B4) Give anybody access to any of their accounts (including game alts, if the game is using them), either here or on the mafia discussion board.

B5) Attempt to obtain advice about the game from anybody not currently playing.

B6) Post information on the thread relating to another player's past or current activity on (or absence from) the board that would not otherwise be available to anybody reading the thread.

B7) Quote, in whole or part, PMs from (or other private conversations with) the mods on the thread, or discuss the timing of any PMs sent to the mods.

B8) Post on the thread at any time after they are dead until the mods themselves post on the thread to announce that the game is over. Any posts accidently made after death should be immediately edited blank.

B9) Make any bets about the game.

B10) Offer to break any of these rules or any other rules the mods have set in place for the game, encourage others to do so or help to conceal the fact that rules have been broken.

AND JUST SO YOU KNOW

C1) Failure to comply with the rules may result in any punishment the mods deem appropriate, including, but not limited to: a request to edit posts; formal warnings on thread; "modkilling", and ending the game prematurely in favor of one faction or none. The mods will also report rule infractions to the metamods after the game. Except where clearly stated in the rules, the mods are free to respond to any rules violation in whatever manner they wish. In all cases the mods' decision on these matters is final.

C2) Feel free to PM or IM your thoughts (or questions) to the mods. We love to hear them!

C3) The mods reserve the right to amend the rules during the game if we realize we've forgotten to cover something.

-------------------------

As well as running the game on this thread, the mods are also responsible for administering the spoiler thread on the discussion board. Anybody not actively involved in the game (whether spectators or dead players) can request access to this thread by PMing the mods. Please not that while in general the mods will be happy to let anybody have access to this thread, they do reserve the right to refuse access to anybody for any reason. Accordingly, please do not ask anybody other than the mods for access to the spoiler thread or give yourself access to it, even if you have the power to do so.

Once given access to the thread, spoiled spectators should also take note of the following rules, and must not ...

D1) Share any information from the spoiler thread with living players, or post such in a forum where it may be seen by living players.

D2) Offer any advice, hints or strategy to living players.

D3) Make personal attacks on players in the game or on posters in the spoiler thread itself

D4) Post on the game thread before the mods announce that the game is over.

Spectators (of any sort) who ignore these rules are likely to have their access to the spoiler thread revoked and/or to be reported to the metamods.

Game Mechanics

1 - General Structure
Players may begin posting as soon as the mods announce that the game has started on the thread. The game begins during the day. The day ends when when a sufficient number of people have voted to lynch a player (remove that player from the game) or voted to end the day without a lynch. Many games also have time limits on the days, and if no consensus is reached when the time expires, the day ends with no lynch. When the day phase has ended, night begins. The mods will then post a scene reporting the outcome of the day. Players may continue posting in the thread but no voting is allowed. Night ends when the mods post the morning scene reporting the outcome of the night actions. Day and night phases continue to alternate until the game ends.

2 - Day Phase
During the day, players may post in the thread and vote. Some roles may have special powers which can be used during the day. See later posts for a list of roles.

2.1 - Voting Mechanics
To vote for a player: bold that player's name.
To vote to end the day without a lynch: bold the word night.
To change your vote: bold the other player's name (or bold night).
To remove your vote without casting a new vote: bold the phrase remove vote.

2.2 - Voting Restrictions
You may only vote during the day phase. You can only have one vote outstanding at any time. You may not vote for yourself. You may not edit a vote into a post. You may not edit a vote out of a post.

2.3 - Bold Restrictions
The use of bold should be limited to voting. If you want to emphasize a players name or another word, you can underline the word or post using a different color

2.4 - Majority Defined
A majority means either more than half of the active players voting for one player's Test or half or more of the active players voting to go to night without a lynch.

2.6 - Evening Scene
The mods will post a scene shortly after the day ends to report the results of the day actions. If the day ended with a player's lynch, the mods might also reveal information about the lynched player, such as the player's alt or alignment. This is the mod's choice, and they'll explain what, if any, information will be revealed in the game rules. [b]There are no hidden clues in the evening scenes.[/b]

3 - Night Phase

During the night, players may post in the thread but may not vote. Some players will have the ability to perform special actions. Once again, the mods decide which roles will be included for their game, so be sure to fully read the game rules and any role descriptions which may be included.

3.1 - Performing a Night Action
If your role includes the ability to perform a special action at night, you need to PM the mods to indicate the action you wish to take. Most, if not all, roles have the ability to "withhold" their powers (i.e. take no action). This will be made clear to the roled players, and, usually, to all other players as well. If you chose to not perform your allowed action, you must PM "no action" to the mods. Most games have a time limit on nights. All players must PM their night actions to the mods within this timeframe. Players are strongly encouraged to send their night actions as soon as possible. You may also send in a PM for your special action during the day phase.

3.2 - Contingent PM
If you send in a PM during the day phase, you may choose to list alternative actions contingent on the manner in which the day ended. If none of the contingencies you list actually occur, your PM will be disregarded, and you must send a new PM to the mods.

3.3 - Provisional PM
You may choose to send a provisional PM if you want to further consider your night action but do not want to extend the night if all other roled players have decided upon their actions. Provisional PMs must be clearly marked as such. A provisional PM will not be acted upon by the mods until it becomes a 'definite PM.' A provisional PM becomes definite as soon as ( a ) you confirm your choice with another PM, ( b ) all other roled players that need to send night actions have done so, or ( c ) the time limit for the night has expired.

As a courtesy to other players we ask that you confirm your provisional PM as soon as you are able.

3.4 - Last Resort PM
In extraordinary circumstances you may be allowed to send in a last resort PM. A last resort PM will not be acted upon by the mods until ( a ) you confirm your choice with another PM or ( b ) the time limit for the night has expired. Should you need to send a last resort PM, you must first seek the mods approval by explaining the circumstances that necessitate such a PM. Last resort PMs are accepted only at the discretion of the mods.

3.5 - Failure to PM
If not all PMs are received within the time limit, everyone who has failed to send in a PM will be considered to have taken no action. In addition, those who failed to send in a PM will be warned by the mods or may risk further penalties.

3.6 - Changing a Night Action
PMs to the mod can be changed at any point before the new day is announced. A PM is considered to be changed only after the mod receives and has read the PM. The player bears the risk that the mod will post the morning scene after the player has sent in a new PM but before the mod has actually read it.

3.7 - Abusing the Time Limit
If the mods have included a night time limit, it begins as soon as the previous day ended, regardless of when the mods posted the evening scene. However, this time limit is a maximum limit, and all players should send in PMs as soon as they feel comfortable doing so. Players (and mods) prefer shorter nights, as people are anxious to see who may have died and to begin voting again. If the mods feel that a player is abusing the time limit by unreasonably stalling, they may force the player to take no night action or take other appropriate action.

3.8 Preventing Night Actions
Except where expressly noted, no night actions prevent any other night actions sent in from taking effect.

3.9 - Morning Scene
The night phase ends when the mods post the morning scene. The mods will post the scene shortly after all night action PMs have been received. The scene will report any player deaths that occurred during the night, and might also reveal information about the lynched player, such as the player’s alt or alignment. [b]There are no hidden clues in the morning scenes[/b]. As soon as the scene is posted any players who have been killed at night will no longer be active players and can no longer post in the thread. The time limit for the new day will begin with the morning scene.

Section 4 - Endgame
The game will continue to alternate between day and night phases until the game ends. The game can end after either a day or night phase.

4.1 - Winning Conditions
The game ends once one faction has reached its winning conditions, which the mods will state in a later post.

Mafia is a team game. Once one faction achieves its winning conditions, all members of that faction have won whether or not they are active players when the winning conditions are achieved.

4.2 - Ending Scene
The mods will post an ending scene and declare the game over shortly after one faction achieves its winning conditions. If for any reason it becomes impossible for either faction to achieve its winning conditions, the mods will declare the game a draw.

The game is only over when a mod posts the ending scene. Even if you know (or believe you know) the result of the game before then, you may not post in the thread unless you are an active player.

4.3 - Calling the Game Early
The mods reserve the right to end the game at any time before a faction achieves its winning conditions provided there are compelling reasons to do so. In general, the mods will end the game early as soon as one faction's victory becomes inevitable.

4.4 - Spoilers
When the game is over, the mods will reveal the alts and roles of everybody who played and also give everyone access to the spoiled spectator threads on the discussion board.

You have been eagerly waiting for the May Day Celebrations. In fact you have been waiting for almost a year, its your favorite Pagan Festival and this time you are going to show that Stuck up cow who lives down the road that your Bum ain't too big to be chosen as this years May Queen or that you are not too much of a primate to be the Stag King. Yes this year is going to be your year and no-one is going to stop you. Not even Plessiez, last years Winner (and the last 7 years). Officially the most gorgeous guy in your Celtic little village. A true smooth talker who always has a gaggle of ladies hanging of his arm. Yes you have some tough competition. And there is Sophelia, the most beautiful and graceful maiden to ever partake in the ceremony. This is the first year she is eligible, and no doubt she is the maid to beat.



The past week you have been readying yourself, with the other participants. If the final judging were to be held today, you know that Plessiez and Soph would be chosen as the lucky winners. But there are still a few days left before May 1st, and they are not that much better than you.



Slowly you make your way through the woods (somehow missing all the man traps and landmines – Don't get modkilled) and enter the may field. Passing between the contender tents you catch sight of the May Pole, and Soph, tied to it. The ribbons have been wrapped around her, including her neck, and her lifeless head hangs limply.

You can’t believe what you are seeing. Eyes transfixed upon Soph, you head towards the may pole, not looking where you are going. You trip over something on the ground and land in a pool of mud. It only takes a moment to realize that the mud is blood red. Looking at what you tripped over, you see another body, this one male. You turn him over and see Plessiez, this throat cut and a piece of a deer antler shoved into his eye.



You are horrified someone has brutally murdered Soph and Plessiez, and forever tarnished this ceremony. And yet a part of you knows that now they are no more. This may be easier than you thought. If you can stay alive that is.


The village Elders have had the area surrounded and the High Priestess has charged you to route out the evil that has invested your group. Anyone suspected of bein a killer will be sacrificed to the old gods in hopes of a good harvest.
