Return of the Ultralight
Note: players should expect a lot of dense posts in this game. If you don't like the idea of reading through a lot of long posts, you are not the intended audience for this game! Please only sign up if you're sure you're able to handle a game with a lot of content in each post. For semi-recent examples of what you can expect, look in the light games subforum.
About character limits: There will be a hard limit of
30(3 * # of living players) posts per day, with a character limit of 2000 characters per post, in order to keep the volume a bit more predictable.
- There will be an icon that shows up in the post editor (you will need to use either Standard Editor or WYSIWYG) that you can click to enable the character counter. When enabled, a character counter will show up in the bottom right corner of the editor. This counter will not update automatically; you'll need to click the Character Count button or the character counter itself to update the count.
- The character counter will only show up once you've actually clicked into the post editor, and this only happens in game threads. If you want to try it out, you can try clicking in the editor in this test game, for example.
- BBCode tags and the contents of img, video, url, and quote tags will not count towards the character limit.
- If you have a lot of content you want to post at once, you're still absolutely welcome to do so; you'll just have to split it into multiple posts and it'll take up more of your post quota.
Setup: Captain's Choice 15er (12 vanilla town vs. 1 Mafia captain and 2 mafia goons)
- When the game rands, one player will be randed as the mafia captain.
- The mafia captain will have 24 hours to choose their teammates who will be the mafia goons.
- Everyone else will be vanilla town.
- No one else will have any abilities, so it will effectively be mountainous during the game.
