Minor bastard elements. Your rolecard will not lie about your alignment. Flips will not have their alignments altered. There are no game-ending jesters. There may be neutrals. Roles such as Framer, Godfather or Ninja may exist. Expect mild to moderate amounts of Didney magic. There is dead interaction.
THERE ARE ANTI-CLAIM MECHANICS. IF YOU CLAIM YOUR ROLE, FLAVOUR OR EXACT ABILITIES EXPECT THE CONSEQUENCES TO NOT BE PRETTY.
Informed Minority called the Mafia Uninformed Majority called the Town Any other win conditions may be signalled with a wide varity of colours.
Roleblockers who target each other will cause all actions they both take to fail, if a Roleblocker targets a Roleblocker who targets any other role (such as a Cop) then the second roleblocker will be roleblocked and the Cop will not be roleblocked.
Actions will have a static action priority unless specified in their rolecard or boosted/lowered by some other means.
The Mafia may be provided with fake claims, if a player wishes for the host to design them a fake rolecard then the request will be granted within reason.
Historical accuracy is not promised, expect the opposite in fact.
A reminder on angleshooting and some basic rules.
Activity is expected. If you cannot be active please communicate it to me or a co-host privately, otherwise you may be force replaced or modkilled as necessary.
For the purposes of a game of mafia, everything outside the game thread should be treated publicly as if it doesn't exist.
What you or any other player is or isn't doing online (outside of the game) or offline, anywhere, doesn't exist.
The game host and moderators don't exist. (All communication with/about hosts and moderators must be kept private.)
Reports don't exist (if you need to report something, just do it, don't mention it publicly and do not threaten to report someone.) Similarly, infractions, prods, and warnings don't exist. If you get one, handle it privately, don't mention it in the game thread.
Other ongoing games don't exist. (Do not mention them.)
If you need to sub out, discuss it with the host. If you ask the host to sub you out, you should cease posting. Discussing why someone has been subbed out, announcing you will sub out, telling someone to sub out, public speculation as to someone's alignment based on the substitution itself are all forbidden. Think what you will about a person's alignment, at your own risk. Using the manner or motivation surrounding a substitution as reasoning is forbidden.
Do not pretend to break the rules.
If a moderator error/breach in integrity happens and only you know about it, you must discuss it with the hosts immediately. Do not discuss hosting errors unless the hosts have told you that it's ok.
Do not abuse loopholes in the rules, abusing loopholes be treated the same as cheating and the consequences will be the same.
Do not assume discussing anything about integrity or host communications will be given a greencard without checking with the hosts first.
Avoid discussing the wording, naming or role pms in general if at all possible. Treat it like any other form of host communication and assume the consequences will be the same.
Essentially, if you damage the sanctity of this game, you damage the sanctity of your position in this game and future games.
The hosts reserve the right to add or remove anything to these rules if the need arises. Do not Johnny test me. Follow the spirit of these rules and not the letter.
