    Season 5, Game 2: The Hunger Games [The Mafia Championship]

    SEASON 5, GAME 2: THE HUNGER GAMES (MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP)



    Welcome to Season 5 of the Mafia Championship!

    An international forum-based tournament for skilled Mafia players from 170 different communities!

    Spectate the game on our Discord server (650+ members): https://discord.gg/zdeEhcg

    Read more about this season and the Mafia Championship here.


    Hosted By: Our automated @Mafia Host w/ @Frozen Angel providing flavor
    Start Date: May 14, 2018
    SOD/EOD: 4 PM EDT
    Phase Lengths: 48/24
    Lynch Mechanics: Deadline Lynch (person with most votes is lynched at the end of the deadline). In case of a tie, one of the tied players will randomly be lynched. No lynch is a valid vote. Starting Day 2, Majority is enabled, meaning the players can end day early if someone attains a majority of the votes.
    Night Chat In Thread: No, thread will be locked during Night Phases
    Out of Thread Communication: Only the Mafia team may communicate with each other outside of the thread (24/7)
    First randomly select a number to decide the mafia team's composition of Power Roles (1-2), then randomly select a letter to decide the town's composition of Power Roles (A-E). Fill in the number of Vanilla Townies needed to make the town team have 13 members total, and you have your setup (13 townies versus 4 mafia).

    Mafia Role Cop

    Town Roleblocker
    Town Tracker
    Row B Town Even Night Vigilante

    Town Even Night Vigilante
    Town Motion Detector
    Row E Town Doctor
    Town Jack of All Trades*
    Town Doctor
    Town Roleblocker
    Town Motion Detector

    Additional information:

    *Town Jack of All Trades: 1x Vigilante, 1x Roleblocker, 1x Tracker.

    Example:
    If you randed 2 and B, then you'd get the following setup:

    Mafia Goon, Mafia Goon, Mafia Goon, Mafia Role Cop
    vs.
    Town Even Night Vigilante, Town Jailkeeper, Town Voyeur, 10 Vanilla Townies

    So the general idea is that as a townie, you know you're up against one of 2 possible mafia team compositions. And as a mafia you know you're up against one of 5 possible town team compositions. The more powerful the mafia team is, the more power is given to the town team, naturally.

    Important setup notes:
    • The mafia's factional kill must be assigned to a single member of their team each night. This means that the mafia's factional kill can, for example, be blocked by a Town Jailkeeper or tracked by a Town Tracker.
    • None of the included roles can self-target, including the protective roles.
    • Doctors, Jailkeepers, and Roleblockers are not allowed to target the same players on consecutive nights.
    • The Even Night Vigilante may only shoot on even nights (i.e. Night 2, Night 4, etc.).
    • The Voyeur's own action will not show up in their result.
    • There are no night 0 actions (aka pre-game actions).

    Instructions to fit in, have everybody like you, and always be happy:
    • Only post/talk about the game in this thread. Don't PM other players, unless you are mafia and wish to talk with your teammates. Also, don't post anything about the game in other threads or on other forums.
    • Don't try to use the form of your role PM. So a screenshot of your role PM would be cheating.
    • You are not allowed to change your avatar, location or any other profile info during game in any way that could be construed as hinting at your role.
    • This is a game of lying. Players are expected to lie. No statement or promise a player makes within the game has any force outside the game. As an example, a bet offered in a game is not something you can collect if you win.
    • If we believe you to bending the rules intentionally in a way that clearly goes against the spirit of the rules and the game, then that would also be grounds for modkill.
    • If you have any questions about rules, send a PM to your host. Avoid asking questions to the host in the thread.
    • Don't ever refer to private communications with the Game Host.
    • If you should ever require a replacement, PM Thingyman and stop posting in the thread.
    • No hydra'ing / multi-accounting is allowed. Do not share your account with anyone else.
    • Treat your fellow players with respect. Hostility will not be tolerated.

    Refer to this post for the complete, standard ruleset for mafia games.




    I will repeat this particular rule once more in big letters to make sure you understand:

    DO NOT EVER REFERENCE THIS GAME OUTSIDE OF THIS GAME THREAD. YOU SHOULD NOT BE TALKING ABOUT THIS GAME WHATSOEVER ON YOUR HOME SITE. IF PEOPLE ASK YOU QUESTIONS, TELL THEM YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT THE GAME AND LINK THEM TO THIS THREAD.

    REPRESENTING: GunsNFNRoses

    NATIONALITY: American

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2008

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: MYGNRFORUM, MYMAFIAMANIA (defunct), GunsNFNRoses

    BIO:
    I have been an avid Guns N' Roses fan since middle school and was introduced to mafia on MYGNRFORUM sometime in the late 2000s. I made plenty of friends through the game, and eventually some of those same friends started a website dedicated to the game, mymafiamania. Due to financial reasons, the site remained operational for only a year.

    Despite losing contact with many from mymafiamania, I did manage to meet the co-owner of the site personally in 2011.

    Our Guns N' Roses community branched out to GunsNFNRoses around 2008 amid rumors that MYGNRFORUM would be closing. Mafia soon joined the new community as a result.

    MYGNRFORUM was sold a few years ago. It is no longer a mafia community, and the Guns fans that enjoy the game now play periodically on GunsNFNRoses.

    The participants of the game have changed throughout the years but my love for the game has survived well over a decade. I hope to bring my enthusiasm to the next level.

    BIO:
    Don't let my long career of mafia fool you, almost every single site I've played on has issues with inactivity so I don't really keep up easy, and I also get easily confused and lack the confidence to make decisions for myself so look forward to lynching me on day 1, everyone!

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2017

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: NintendoAge

    BIO:
    I'm a truth-teller through and through. I believe that lies lead to capture, whether wolf or town, and the only way to really keep eyes off of you is to be honest at all times regardless of role. I'm pretty new to the game overall, but I believe that my strong leadership skills in real life have lead me to doing well in the game. I've found myself able to take control of many tough situations and come out on top, winning games on either side. I'm very excited to play with a new group of people I've never met, to get a sense for how others go about the game, and maybe learn some new methods.

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: HEX.RPG

    BIO:
    Hey everyone, I'm Amizore. There's not much to say about me, honestly. I like Studio Ghibli, ducks, and making weird jokes. Mafia-wise, I may not be the most strategic player, but instead try to make the game more lively by chatting a lot for the fun of it. My favourite role is an undercover/investigative role, but nothing can beat a killing role. xD Yes, I am quite boring.




    8) HATER



    REPRESENTING: neonDragon

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: Too many to count

    BIO:
    Hey, hi, how are ya? I’m HATER, and I’m excited to be playing in this championship. The past 2 or 3 years my community hasn’t participated in this challenge despite being invited a whole lot because we respectfully declined based on moral obligations and totally not because we’re lazy pieces of garbage who love to procrastinate on things. The rest of this bio just kind of goes on and on without actually saying much and is mainly here to make Thingyman think I wrote a detailed and impressive bio instead of the short rushed PoS I actually wrote. In fact, you should probably just stop reading now and save yourself the trouble with of slogging through the rest of this paragraph, as the other bios are probably much funnier, and more interesting and original than mine. So stop reading. I mean it. Read something else. Shoo! If you read this last sentence, it won’t tell you anything.




    9) Insaner



    REPRESENTING: MafiaManiac

    NATIONALITY: Russian

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2017 (on forums)

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES:MafiaManiac, MafiaUniverse, Town of Salem

    BIO:
    I played my first mafia game at a summer camp when I was 8 years old. Most players were older than me and I wasn't able to make much sense out of anything tbh... but everyone seemed to be having so much fun that I decided to stay for another to figure out what it was all about. And before I knew it, I was hopelessly hooked After the summer camp was over, I introduced all of my peers back home to the game and they all loved it too. Being a "pioneer" of mafia in my crew, I mostly hosted games back then. That was a very satisfying experience; everybody enjoyed how I was revealing night actions in a funny way and I didn't screw them up all that often either. But I played some too, and when I did, I totally rekt those kids I think this was easily the time when I was at the pinnacle of my mafia performance.

    I've been playing mafia on forums since early 2017. I can't say that I have a refined playstyle that I always follow. I just try things out to see what works and what doesn't (and then repeat the stuff that doesn't just to make sure).

    REPRESENTING: PCM.daily

    NATIONALITY: USA

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2015

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: PCM.Daily

    BIO:
    I am one of the Top 25 users on the forum PCM.Daily, a cycling based forum where I am mostly involved in NON-Cycling related topics/games. I have played mafia ever since it started on the site. I have been wrongfully killed many times but in the end have always been found to have been telling the truth. My favorite role to play is the detective and I don't have a least favorite role.

    My approach to the game is to be straight forward and honest. I challenge you to find any game I have played in where I have told a lie. People will not believe you in this game anyway so I just am honest no matter what. That doesn't mean I won't hide anything but I will not lie to you.

    Otherwise, I am a technology junkie and run my own Web/Social Media business. I enjoy PS4 games and also am an avid golfer and fan of WWE.

    I started playing mafia on last year's April on PC. Back then, I was a big noobie and knew next to nothing regarding scumhunting, and I probably still do. But here I am, representing a site that'll stop existing someday.

    Enough of my ramblings, I'm glad I got a chance to represent a community here in this championship, and I look forward to a nice game
    Good luck y'all

    NATIONALITY: Dutch

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2014

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: www.weerwolvenvanwakkerdam.nl

    BIO:
    I am 22 years old guy from the Netherlands who studies Journalism and works as a freelance games and movie journalist. I host a lot of games of Werewolves and I am a player with a strange way of playing. There is one way you can find out that I am a werewolf: if I am still alive after the second night, most of the times I am the person who tells who is getting lunched. Otherwise my playstyle will mostly get me killed. I have learned that the best way to get information is the tricky one that puts your own life in danger.




    14) Last_hero



    REPRESENTING: Hattrick.org (Italian)

    NATIONALITY: Italian

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2014

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: Hattrick

    BIO:
    I have been playing Mafia since I was a kid “live” with a bunch of friends.
    Introduced to the online version by the Romanian community in Hattrick and kept playing since then.
    I liked the online version so much, that I introduced it in the Italian community (still in Hattrick) and I’ve moderated numerous games with all kind of variations. Now these games are very popular with a strong base, that we have several variations and a few different people take the opportunity to try to moderate “their” game (this is great, so I have the opportunity to play as well!)

    I’m Italian, like to travel, lived in the US for about 8-10 years and now I am in London since summer 2014.
    I like sport in general, in particular football and basketball.

    Good luck!

    A Nomad in search for the perfect burger. Do not judge me before you know me, but just to inform you, you won’t like me...
    The best of me is yet to come ...
    I am not a player…I’m the game (Wishful thinking ... LOL)




    16) Shabas



    REPRESENTING: Werewolv.es

    NATIONALITY: Dutch

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2016

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: mostly Werewolv.es, a few games on Boardgamegeek.com

    BIO:
    I think I have an assertive but mostly friendly playstyle. I usually call out people and poke around to get some info on the game. I dislike people getting angry and nasty, I think politeness is key – even if people are dragging you to the pyre! Keep your emotions in check, so I can do the same. I like games where the players rely on logical argumentation rather than shouting loudly. I like it when a game requires both objective game data (votes + role actions) and a trustworthy appearance. My best game is when I’m Evil and I can appear friendly and reasonable while steering the village towards its doom, muhaha!

    I’m usually not so good at surviving long in a game. I like to think this is because I’m, like, super intimidating. I like putting my observations and game data in elaborate spreadsheets. I’m also fond of thinking of all kinds of new roles and other variations for this game type – I’m fond of designing interesting games and strategical situations.

    One of the most interesting challenges of Werewolv.es I find is the Shapeshifter. In this community, games are anonymized (and you’re not allowed to state who you are), allowing a role like the Shapeshifter to take over another person’s identity, the Werewolf having to act and type like that player from that moment onwards.

    Oh, and sometimes I also like writing long texts, which other players don't always appreciate as much as I'd like.

    REPRESENTING: Kylä

    NATIONALITY: Finnish

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): Late 2012? Definitely played in 2013

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: Kylä

    BIO:
    I started playing when I was 15 years old. In two years I was awarded the titles of "the best townie player" and "most active player" on the site. Considering that we are lucky if a person posts five messages in a 96/24 game, I doubt it means much on this site. Was the only one willing and capable to join the competition this year, even though I study law and work part-time, which are huge time sinks for more meaningful activities. Like arguing over other persons imaginary affiliation in internet. Would have challenged our previous competitor last year, if my country wouldn't have sent me to a mandatory military training because of my gender. I guess that it's only a rightful and important part of equality that privileged white man should serve their country - perfectly acceptable in a country considered as one of the most progressive in gender equality. Might be sarcastic sometimes, but never rude. Fun fact: Haven't played as a wolf in a serious game for like two years. Please don't ask how many games we had in our site during those two years.

    Season 5, Game 2: The Hunger Games [The Mafia Championship]: Game Information!

    This is an automated game of Mafia.


    Setup - 17 Players

    SETUP DETAILS FOR 2X5

    This is a semi-open grid setup meant for 17 players: 4 mafia versus 13 townies.

    Column 1 Column 2
    Mafia Goon
    Mafia Goon
    Mafia Goon
    Mafia Goon
    Mafia Goon
    Mafia Goon
    Mafia Goon
    Mafia Role Cop
    Row A Town Even Night Vigilante
    Town Roleblocker
    Town Voyeur
    Town Even Night Vigilante
    Town Roleblocker
    Town Tracker
    Row B Town Even Night Vigilante
    Town Jailkeeper
    Town Even Night Vigilante
    Town Jailkeeper
    Town Voyeur
    Row C Town Tracker
    Town Jailkeeper
    Town Tracker
    Town Jailkeeper
    Town Voyeur
    Row D Town Tracker
    Town Roleblocker
    Town Voyeur
    Town Jack of All Trades*
    Town Even Night Vigilante
    Town Motion Detector
    Row E Town Doctor
    Town Jack of All Trades*
    Town Doctor
    Town Roleblocker
    Town Motion Detector

    *Town Jack of All Trades: 1x Vigilante, 1x Roleblocker, 1x Tracker.

    Method for randing:
    First you randomly select a number to decide the mafia team's composition of Power Roles (1-2), then you randomly select a letter to decide the town's composition of Power Roles (A-E). Fill in the number of Vanilla Townies needed to make the town team have 13 members total, and you have your setup. I.e. if you randed 2 and B then you'd get the following setup:

    Mafia Goon, Mafia Goon, Mafia Goon, Mafia Role Cop
    vs.
    Town Even Night Vigilante, Town Jailkeeper, Town Voyeur, 10 Vanilla Townies

    So the general idea is that as a townie, you know you're up against one of 2 possible mafia team compositions. And as a mafia you know you're up against one of 5 possible town team compositions. The more powerful the mafia team is, the more power is given to the town team, naturally.

    Important setup notes:
    • The mafia's factional kill must be assigned to a single member of their team each night. This means that the mafia's factional kill can, for example, be blocked by a Town Jailkeeper or tracked by a Town Tracker.
    • None of the included roles can self-target, including the protective roles.
    • Doctors, Jailkeepers, and Roleblockers are not allowed to target the same players on consecutive nights.
    • The Even Night Vigilante may only shoot on even nights (i.e. Night 2, Night 4, etc.).
    • The Voyeur's own action will not show up in their result.
    • There are no night 0 actions (aka pre-game actions).

    Role explanations:
    Please go to this page to read about the different roles if you're unfamiliar with them: https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums...oles-Modifiers
    • Majority will be in effect starting Day 2. Day 2 onward will end the instant a majority is reached.
    • Town wins when all threats to Town have been eliminated.
    • Mafia factions win when they achieve Parity and all other evil factions have been eliminated at any time.
    • Votes are not automatically locked at LYLO.
    • No Lynching is enabled. Vote for No Lynch to forgo a lynch that Day.
    • Mafia factional kills are mandatory. Mafia must submit a factional kill each night, or a player outside their faction will be chosen at random.
    • Mafia factional kills are assigned. They can be tracked, watched, or roleblocked.
    • Mafia may communicate at any time.
    • Tied votes will result in a player being lynched at random from among the tied players.

    Phase Lengths

    Days are 48 hours in length. Nights are 24 hours in length.

    FAQ

    Are you unsure about how actions are processed or how roles interact with each other? Then read more here:

    ORDER OF OPERATIONS

    Night actions are processed in this order:

    Strongman kills
    Roleblocks
    Jails
    Doctors
    Bodyguards
    Kills
    Investigations
    Backups

    When an action was submitted during the night will never matter when the actions are processed.

    ACTION FEEDBACK

    These are the results you will get when you submit certain actions.

    Non-investigative roles when they submit an action (they also receive this if they are roleblocked):

    Your action on Player A was received.
    Investigative roles (Tracker, Cop, etc.) when roleblocked:

    Your action on Player B did not return any results.
    Trackers when tracking a person that didn't visit anyone (or if they targeted a Ninja):

    Player C did not visit anyone.
    Watchers when watching a person that wasn't visited by anyone (or only visited by a Ninja):

    Player D was not visited by anyone.
    Alignment Cop when investigating a town-aligned player (or a Godfather):

    Player E is Town
    Watcher when watching a person that was visited by multiple people:

    Player F was visited by Player G, Player H, Player I
    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    How do I submit my action?
    Use the form below the game thread. If your role has a night action, the form will only be visible during night phases. It's not possible to submit actions in advance of the night phase.

    What does it mean if the Mafia Host says that night kills are assigned?
    In games with this setting turned on, the member of the mafia team that made the most recent night kill submission will be the one assigned to the kill, which means that the kill can be blocked if a Town Roleblocker or Town Jailkeeper target the mafia player in question. Similarly, the kill can be tracked and watched by Town Trackers and Town Watchers. If this setting isn't turned on, then it doesn't matter who the last person to submit the mafia kill is, as the kill is unblockable and untrackable in this case.

    Where do I find example role PM's?
    This thread contains example role PM's for all roles currently supported by the Modbot as well as information on the various modifiers. Here you will find the answers to a lot of questions not covered in this FAQ section.

    Which roles can self-target?
    Only Watchers are able to use their ability on themselves at night. This means that Doctors or Jailkeepers aren't able to protect themselves, for example.

    Which roles are not able to target the same players on consecutive nights?
    Doctors, Jailkeepers, and Roleblockers are not allowed to target the same player twice in a row. Everyone else is, including Bodyguards. Note that this non-consecutive restriction still holds true even if one of these three roles were blocked the night before when targeting the person that they're attempting to target again.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A and Jailkeeper B or Roleblocker A and Roleblocker B target each other (and are not targetted by other blockers)?
    In the case of Jailkeepers, they will block and protect each other. In the case of Roleblockers, they also block each other. This means that the two players are trackable to each other that night by Trackers and Watchers. It also means that if one of them is mafia and happens to simultaneously be the one submitting the factional kill that night in a game with assigned kills, then this kill is blocked. This same principle applies to longer loops. I.e. in a A > B > C > D > A loop, everyone is blocked.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Roleblocker B who targets Jailkeeper A?
    Jailkeeper A will be blocked in this scenario. Refer to the order of operations: Roleblocks process before jails.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Roleblocker B who targets Player C?
    As stated above, roleblocks process before jails, so Roleblocker B will successfully block Player C. I.e. Jailkeeper A will fail to block Roleblocker B, but will still protect Roleblocker B.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Jailkeeper B and Jailkeeper B targets Jailkeeper C (who isn't targeting any of the former two)?
    In this case, Jailkeeper A would prevent Jailkeeper B's block from occuring, meaning that Jailkeeper C's action is not blocked.

    If an X-Shot role is blocked while using a shot, do they lose that shot forever?
    Yes. A 1-shot Vigilante being blocked while attempting to kill someone will not have their shot refunded.

    If someone with a Strongman modifier kills Player A who is protected by Bodyguard B, who dies?
    Player A will die, and Bodyguard B will survive.

    Can a mafia team choose not to kill anyone during a night?
    The host can determine this using the Mafia Factional Kill setting. Kills can be mandatory, optional, or disabled altogether.

    The default is No. The mafia factional kill is compulsory. This is done in order to avoid deadlocked games where the town keeps no lynching and the mafia refuses to submit a kill. If the game has assigned kills, it will be randomized which member of the team is carrying out the kill.

    If there is only one mafia member left in a game without assigned kills, can the mafia factional kill then be blocked and/or tracked?
    No.

    Can the mafia submit a kill for one of their own members?
    No.

    If I kill someone, does their night action, if they have one, still succeed?
    Yes, killing someone doesn't prevent them from performing their night action (unless they investigated someone, in which case they will not receive a report). Refer to the order of operations: All kills happen at the end of the night, and everyone pulls the trigger simultaneously.

    Can individual night actions be proxied on mafia teams?
    No. If the mafia team has a Mafia Roleblocker, for example, and they want to use this role's action, then the player occupying that slot must submit the action themselves.

    If a Lover is shot during the night, while the other Lover is protected that night, does the other Lover still die?
    Yes. It's not possible to prevent a Lover from dying of love sickness.

    If a Bodyguard protects Lover A, while Lover B is shot during that same night, what happens?
    A dies of love sickness and Bodyguard lives.

    If there are any Innocent Childs in the game, are these confirmed in the thread right when the game begins?
    No. Innocent Childs are able to decide themselves when or if they wish to have the Modbot confirm their role and alignment in the thread. Note that this is exclusively a day action and that it can take up to one minute for the Modbot to process the action.

    What results are Alignment Cops, Full Cops and Role Cops given if they investigate a Godfather or a Miller?
    Alignment Cops are told "Town" for Godfathers and "Mafia" for Millers. Full Cops are told "Vanilla Town" for Godfathers and "Mafia Goon" for Millers. Role Cops are told "Godfather" for Godfathers and "Miller" for Millers.

    Can Role Cops tell the difference between a Vanilla Town and Mafia Goon?
    No. They are told "Vanilla" when investigating either of these two roles.

    If I roleblock someone with a Bulletproof Vest, will that nullify the effect of the vest?
    No. Bulletproof Vests are passive modifiers that cannot be blocked from working.

    If I roleblock Masons, Neighbors or Lovers with out of thread communication privileges, can I prevent them from talking at night?
    No.

    If I roleblock a Godfather, will they still be revealed as being town-aligned to Alignment Cops and Full Cops that night?
    Yes.

    USING THE SOFTWARE

    Are you wondering about how to vote, submit night actions or multi-isolate players? Read about this and more here:

    VOTING BBCODES

    Our forum votes for someone by using the vote tags: [V]Thingyman[/V]. Preview:

    ##Vote Thingyman

    Make sure that you spell out the full, correct name. Abbreviations or misspelled names will not be registered by the Modbot.

    To unvote, use the tags: [UNV][/UNV] . When unvoting you do not need to enter the name of the person that you are unvoting. Preview:

    ##Unvote

    VOTING BUTTONS

    You can also quickly vote for someone by clicking on the box with a checkmark icon, which will bring up an alphabetized dropdown containing the names of living players:



    This will insert [V][/V] tags with the name of the player you selected in the dropdown, perfect every time.

    Click the empty checkbox button to insert [UNV][/UNV].

    SUBMITTING NIGHT ACTIONS

    If you have a night action, simply submit this at night by scrolling to the bottom of the game thread. Here you will find a night action form like this:



    Click the dropdown and select the player whom you wish to use your night action on. You can change it as many times as you wish before the deadline expires.

    CALLING UP A VOTECOUNT

    Votecounts will appear automatically at various intervals, but you can also call up votecounts yourself by following these steps:

    First, you need to apply to join "Mafia Game Hosts" under Permission Groups.

    Second, once your request has been approved, you will be able to call up votecounts by simply pushing the "Post Votecount" button in the top right corner of any game thread that you'd like an updated votecount for.


    VIEWING VOTE HISTORY

    There are three ways to access the vote history for any game.

    1. Click on the "Vote History" button in the top right corner of the game thread:

    2. Click on the "View Vote History" link, which accompanies all votecounts:

    3. Click on Modbot in the top forum menu. This will give you a list of ongoing and completed games:



      Next, simply click on "Vote History" to view all votes for that game.

    Following any of the above three steps will bring you to an overview like this one:



    Click on a Voter's username to view all of the votes by their slot.

    Click on a Target's username to view all of the votes for their slot.

    ISOLATING A PLAYER'S POSTS

    If you wish to read a player's posts in isolation, simply click on "ISO" in the top right corner of one of that player's posts in the relevant thread as illustrated here:



    Alternatively, you can access a player's posts in isolation by clicking on the number next to "Replies:" in the forum lobby.



    Doing so will pull up a window listing the post counts for everyone who has posted in that thread. You access someone's posts in isolation by simply clicking on the number next to "Posts:" for that person.



    The ISO view itself has Quote and Multi-Quote buttons inside it, which will make it very easy to quickly quote a lot of a player's posts for analysis or commentary:


    MULTI-ISOLATING

    If you wish to read not just one player's posts, but you want to ISO multiple players, then click the "Multi ISO" button to the left of "Game Tools" and select the players in question as shown here:


    MULTI-QUOTING WHILE THREAD IS LOCKED

    Note that you can multi-quote posts from even locked game threads. This is useful for when you wish to reread the game and do work during night phases.

    After quoting the relevant posts, you simply open a different, opened thread and press "Go Advanced". Then add the quotes to your post by clicking the prompt below the post area as shown here:



    Now, of course you can't post your work in the game thread while the thread is locked, but you can copy paste and save your work to a local file or the cloud and have it ready to post the very next day phase (if you're still alive, that is).

    BOOKMARKS

    Whenever you open a game thread, you are able to bookmark posts. This is for many players an important tool for keeping track of and remembering vital pieces of information, reads, claims etc.

    Also, note that these bookmarks are saved to your user account, meaning that it eliminates the trouble associated with keeping notes between different computers/devices.

    If you want to bookmark a post, you simply scroll to the post that you want to bookmark and press "Set Bookmark" as shown here:



    This will call up 5 different colored icons (Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, and Black) on the right side of the post in question. You can click any of these icons, which will then prompt you to include a note for the post.

    If you don't want to include a note, you don't have to - just leave it blank. The color coding in itself can be a valuable tool. Maybe you want to use Red bookmarks for posts that you find suspicious, Green bookmarks for posts that you find townie, Black bookmarks for posts containing claims, or whatever system you can think of that will be helpful to you.



    Once this is done, you have now successfully bookmarked a post with a certain color and maybe even a note. If you wish to remove the bookmark again, click on "Unset Bookmark".

    How do I access bookmarks?

    There are two ways to access your bookmarks.
    1. Inside a game thread, you can access the bookmarks for that specific game by simply right clicking on the "Bookmark" button and opening the link.

      This will bring you to a separate page that is automatically filtered to only show bookmarks from the game thread that you accessed the page from.
    2. You can also access your bookmarks by going to Features in the site's top menu:



      This will bring you to a page where no bookmarks are shown by default. However, you have several filtering options.

      You can filter by Game, by Player and by Color - and all of them at once if you so wish.

      Here's an example of filtering by only red bookmarks in one specific game:



    If you want to be taken directly to one of your bookmarked posts, you just click the post number.

    How do I quote bookmarks?

    You can also multi-quote bookmarked posts by clicking the little "+" button seen above on the far right side of each bookmark.

    Once you have multi-quoted all the bookmarked posts that you want to quote, you will then have to go to the game thread in which you wish to quote the bookmarked posts.

    Here you have two ways of quoting the posts.

    1. Click on "Reply With Quote" on another post as shown here:



      You will then probably want to delete the last post quoted in the reply box, but otherwise you should be good to go.
    2. Or you can do the more smooth option and click the "Reply To Thread" button at the top and bottom of the game thread - as shown here:



      By doing this you will open up a reply box containing only your multi-quoted bookmarked posts.

    There are literally thousands of spectators here tonight, all desperate to get a good look at this year's tributes! The sponsors are waiting impatiently to see them, hoping to make some decisions over their sponsorships, and I am just dying to see our latest recruits!

    Hello and welcome, to the second game of the fifth season of the Mafia Championship! I'm Frozen Angel and I will host this year's stunning battle of fame and glory!

    I know you're hyped enough and ready for this already but I think I must say some few words about this year hunger games. Specially because this year Hunger Games is happening in a special setting! First, this year we're having 17 tributes instead of 24. Oh you ask why? Because unlike last year, instead of 12 districts, we now have 16 districts. Also I'm proud to announce that the Capital is also participating in Hunger games and is sending a tribute! Also unlike the previous Hunger Games, this year, each district has only one champion in game. I know what you think about that, but this is not the hydra event, this is Mafia Championship so ... That's how it is! Deal with it.

    In few hours tributes will go inside the ring to fight in a battle of life and death. Will they be able to do their objectives and live to find glory and fame or will they fail and die and their names will vanish from the hearts of people? This is the big, big, big day! Stay tuned and may the odds be ever in your favour!

    Hey all! Happy to be here, and excited to get started!

    For reference, I am online pretty well all day every day, though perhaps a bit less active during certain hours of the day (and obviously when I sleep!).

    I get to work at around noon EST on weekdays and am preeetty available throughout the day; I'm a web dev so I'm on a computer all day. Around 5pm EST I usually head to the gym, then home. I get home at like 7pm, and depending on whether I spend time w/ the wife or ignore the poor girl, I'm available again. I often underestimate my availability though, so expect me to be around most of the time, probably. I get pretty enveloped in forum games (they keep me up at night when they get heated haha), so I'll probably post TOO much at times. I'll try not to drown others out though, that's some feedback I've gotten in the past, so I'll do my best to let others speak and not try to take the mantle of captain talks-too-much.

    Best of luck out there all, let's have some fun!

    Nice flavor added ^ @Frozen Angel

    Hi all , may the best team win. Yes, I said team; Townies vs Wolves. For the wolves, lucky you... You already know your teammates, for the rest of us; let's try and avoid trying to impress the panelists with your impressive mafia skills and remember we are a team.

    A small request: Kindly @mention one another should you require an answer to a specific question.

    Let the hunt for fellow townies and wolves begin !!!

    On a side note: I will be inactive on Thursday from 7 am - 7 pm South African Standard Time due to having Health and Safety trainings for work.

    Elieson: In my community we don't really have RVS. Now I was mainly focused on finding an avatar so others will recognize me easier and I did find a lovely one, but then realized it differed from the one I have on the intro message, so had to find my old one from the files.

    If I calculated right, we have four daykills before we reach lylo. I did not count special action kills, as we might not have special killing roles in the game.

    13:4 w/ four Lynches and four theoretically successful nightkills brings the game to D5 at 5:4 if worst case scenario. That said, if an Even-night Vig exists, and they fire on N4 after a lot of bad lynch luck featuring four MLs, we could be out of a game. Basic idea of if town's already mislynched four times, think VERY VERY VERY HARD before trying to be a hero sounds like a fair idea.

    At least it's highly likely that people Finnish playing their games over there.

    This is my checking in post. My availability should be most of the day, but I may be unavailable at certain times due to sleep or random errands I need to perform for my family (in place of a job, pretty much).
    Sounds about right. Long time no see~

    I quite like the theme for this game " The Hunger Games" , 17 players thrown into game trying to survive, kuddos to Thingyman and everyone involved.

    At the moment, the only one who has so far raised my eyebrows a bit is My Name is Earl with the comment "Let the hunt for fellow townies and wolves begin !!!", as his choices of words seem quite calculated and imply strongly that he is not part of the wolves, especially when he addresses the wolves directly.

Basic idea of if town's already mislynched four times, think VERY VERY VERY HARD before trying to be a hero sounds like a fair idea.
    Seems wise to me. Strong power roles should consider their options through before making hard choices.

    Hey all! I'm excited that this has started!

    A note beforehand, because of my timezone I'll usually only participate right after phase change (it's pretty late here ATM), and then probably start posting when most of you people are asleep...

    I have little experience with the forum type game, so I'll have to figure out some practical stuff as we go (don't worry mod, I did read the rules )

    Given that we're from many different communities with different habits of doing this, I think it's interesting to hear from all of you how you'd go about this game, whether we can agree on some kind of daytime strategy. Given that we have enforced lynch, we don't have much time to sit around and wait. Do we all just vote (pseudo-)randomly and see where that gets us? Do we elect a few people whom we pile votes on and pressure them for claims, and then decide among the claimants? How are people feeling about partial role claims/role hints? (i.e declaring whether your role is part of one subset of roles, or the other (if you'd divide all possible roles into two subsets, for example))...

    Alright, I'm probably off to sleep soon

    I generally opt on day 1 for voting for a quiet person. I am of the opinion that overly quiet people are not very helpful to town. As I said in my bio, I am all about speaking only the truth at all times, as lies are just plum suspicious. So I try to get people talking, and in doing so hopefully catch someone in a lie. It's worked quite well for me in general the few games I have played.

    That said, the dynamic here is definitely different. To your point, there are people from all over the world here. I'm used to just having Canadians and Americans playing, with maybe the occasional Brit, and perhaps a random person from Taiwan or something to mix things up. So granted, a quiet person in THIS game may simply be living in the East and so have an opposite schedule from those in the West.

    Should be interesting, and will probably force me to change it up from my usual strategy, which is something I am looking forward to.

    Hi guys. I would like to wish each and everyone all the best and good luck in this game. Before we start I would like to say that I am a bit bussy here and there, what means that I work 9 hours a day as a part of my studie at the moment, and have to travel around 4 hours a day, which means I will check everything posted here, but I might not be in the mood or available to react quickly sometimes.

    This definitly is a good idea!

    Well, from the place I am used to voting a mayor on the first day, but for what I understand by now the person getting the most votes will get lynched right away? In that case I agree that we should lynch a quiet person, since this heavily textbased game depends on reading peoples post and estimate on what people write if they are a member of the mafia (Werewolf) or not.

    Hi all , may the best team win. Yes, I said team; Townies vs Wolves. For the wolves, lucky you... You already know your teammates, for the rest of us; let's try and avoid trying to impress the panelists with your impressive mafia skills and remember we are a team.

    A small request: Kindly @mention one another should you require an answer to a specific question.

    Let the hunt for fellow townies and wolves begin !!!

    On a side note: I will be inactive on Thursday from 7 am - 7 pm South African Standard Time due to having Health and Safety trainings for work.
    Don't like this entry. Expressing instructive sentiments regarding how the game should be played which is something that I've found to be a wolf sign.

    Can't just hand mafia free information, especially when like 1/2 of the game features vanilla roles. If it were role madness then maybe, but we're looking at open setup, kiddo.

    Oh, this'll be easy then. Gloves, are you aligned with the Mafia?

    See, if he says yes, then he's living up to his credo of telling the truth at all times, and if he says no then he's probably lying anyway.

    ##Unvote GobletDraconis1406

    I'm actually comfortable voting for this at the moment. Going for a quiet person is sure fine whatever a good idea, but you get no associative reads or anything off of it. That, and said "honesty" bit is meant for the intro/bio section, not for the game. Discussing self-meta is a one way ticket to trying to look good and defend oneself. Mafia isn't about saving yourself, it's about securing a quick end on scum.

    The entire post feels like fluff with an attempt to contribute, but discussing meta and mechanics isn't really a contribution to the game. The fluff would arguably be fine on its own but the rest just feels forced.

    Just felt like testing out the new functions this forum has and I am impressed with the vote count and the way the system recognizes all of those votes. Great to see how it works so well! And after saying this, back to the game...

    I agree with you Elieson, that mafia is not about defending or saving yourself but by getting mafia killed. The best way of defending yourself is by letting others know who you think should be lynched instead of yourself. But for now the way to find and kill mafia is to have a discussion at first. I don't think an discussion can not be started without someone feeling a little bit heat under his feets, so lets put some pressure by giving someone a second vote and find out what kind of information it brings us. Will he defend himself or will he help thinking how we can kill mafia? I am very curious what we can learn from this and who will follow on the bandwagon (or not)

    ##Vote Glover

    We still have plenty of time to change the vote when necessary. But I think giving someone a second vote will give something to have a discussion about. (By the way I dislike lynches that are spread to much, since Mafia can easily abuse such situations)

    Or thirth. I completly missed that GobletDragonis already voted Gloves too, while I was writing that post. Well time to go to sleep and then rethink what to do with the vote after some new and fresh innput in the discussion.

    I personally just like defending myself while others look at who looks suspicious.

    This playstyle does not get me results but when I go for results it just ends in disaster so I prefer staying safe.

    and just to finish up this fluff post:

    Hello all! I'm new to this format of mafia, but will do my best to get acclimated quickly!

    I will be on randomly at random times due to the nature of my current job!


    Best of luck to you all!

    I agree with what Elieson is saying after reading through everything. The other users have brought good points up as well and I think that this is going to give us a good starting point.
