Setup information is below, shamelessly ripped from Voxxicus, who shamelessly ripped from Logic, who shamelessly ripped it from Manasi, who shamelessly ripped it from Amy, who shamelessly ripped it from Visorslash.
This is an all vanilla (mountainous game) with a twist. The game is played under anonymous accounts provided by me with an unknown playerlist, so you will need to PM me if you want to play.
Twist: (Lifted from TinCow's The Thing game on the Org, of which this is a straight port).
The Thing (mafia): (3 players), the bad guys. The mafia gets one kill per night, however the mafia will have two options on how to kill:
Option 1: Normal Kill. A mafioso kills a person and they die. Dead player's account is unlinked to their Anonymous account.
Option 2: Doppleganger Kill. A mafioso kills a person, but takes their form. The dead player is unlinked from their Anonymous account, while the mafioso takes control of the dead player's Anonymous account and uses it as his own. The mafioso's old Anonymous account shows up as dead.
The other 14 players will be the villagers who have to use their wits and powers of deduction to work out the impostors.
Game Start: August 11, 2020.
Phases: 72/24 (hours) with deadline at 2:00 am EST (Monday night 11:00 pm PST).
No majority lynch, no locked votes.
15 posts/day phase minimum.
200 posts/day maximum, lifted an hour before lylo.
The game is anonymous, but the hosts are not. If you want to be added to the sub list or to spectate, contact me.
Players will be assigned accounts. You are not to change the avatar or password of the account provided to you. You can change user-side settings as you wish - theme, posts per page, etc, but nothing visible.
Ciphers/Codes/Trying to be Overly Clever is all forbidden. Make it difficult to have your body inhabited via posting style and quality, not by pointing back to the 6th letter of the 5th post of each day phase, to prove you are who you initially were. Play to the spirit of the game, both regarding The Thing mechanic, and regarding the Anonymous Account aspect. You likely do know a good chunk of the people in the game. You may not make public reads based on who they are. You may not hint as to who you are. You may not hint as to other people are. You are to pretend you know no one and no one knows you in this game. This could mean you get lynched by people who would otherwise never lynch you. Tough luck! Say nothing that can be used to more easily identify you. I will beat you over the head with a rubber fish and possibly modkill you if you violate the spirit of the game knowingly. Use your brains; I'm 97.26% sure most of you have one. Maybe not you. You know who you are.
You'd think this would be obvious, but be very, very careful about not posting on the account you have for this game elsewhere. Triple check if you want to post outside of the game thread for some reason that you are on your primary account, not this one.
Complaining about the phase lengths/speed of game counts as an identifying feature. You know what you signed up for, suck it up. As long as people meet their 15 post per day phase quota, host intervention will not happen regarding activity.
MU rules fully apply. Familiarize yourself with them. I will personally come down on you if you disappoint me. There are long phases. If you lose your cool, take a step away. Attack the play, never, ever the player. This game could be a long slog, as a 17 player 72/24 mountainous game. Make people want to open up the thread, rather than dread opening up the thread, and have a good time. This is not optional.
As always, do not sign up unless you are confident you will be able to play the game as advertised. While subs are an option in case of serious and unanticipated issues, the setup of this game means that a new person subbing into a slot is even harder on the game than it would otherwise be.
reinforcing this point here: do not mention anything about playing (or not playing) in this game or even alluding to the fact that you are playing (or not playing) a generic mafia game during this slot (unless it's a different game) onsite or offsite; please try to respect the sanctity of the anonymous playerlist prior to and during the game
note: i changed the EoD time by 12 hours to noon est, but it's a long-phase game so hopefully it doesn't have too much of an effect on the game; schedule changed significantly since i first put up the signup
eod is now at 2 am est, by popular demand :P (sorry for the lack of communication!)

The Hider may each night hide behind a target. If the target is mafia, the Hider will die. If the target is town, the Hider will be untargetable by any and all night actions on that night. If the target is town and the target is shot, both the Hider and the target will die.
