    3 Mafia Goons vs. 12 Vanilla Town


    The Mafia Championship is an annual online tournament series that pits representatives from various forum Mafia (aka Werewolf) communities against one another as they compete to determine the Internet’s greatest forum Mafia player. Each participating community democratically elects one person to represent them and fight on their behalf.

    The Championship was founded in 2013 and has grown larger every season. As of this season, a total of 220+ different communities have been represented in the Mafia Championship, making it the largest cross-forum event on the Internet.

    This season is also the most international one yet with 25+ different countries represented:
    Australia
    Canada
    Chile
    Czechia
    Denmark
    England
    Estonia
    Finland
    Germany
    Hungary
    Indonesia
    Ireland
    Italy
    Japan
    Lithuania
    Norway
    Poland
    Portugal
    Republic of Ireland
    Romania
    Scotland
    South Africa
    Spain
    Sweden
    The Netherlands
    Ukraine
    USA
    Wales

    Read more here about the history of the Mafia Championship.


    The tournament structure:
    • 165 communities will participate, each sending one representative.
    • 11 Qualifying Games will be played consisting of 15 players each. I.e. every representative plays in one Qualifying Game. 1 player will advance directly to the Finale Game from each Qualifying Game. The players themselves vote post-game to determine who is deserving of advancement. I.e. 11 of the 15 finalists will be found this way.
    • A Jury consisting of finalists from Season 3 will along with me discuss and vote to determine a group of 30 wildcard players who will play in 2 Semi Final Wildcard Games. From each of these two games, two players will directly advance to the Finale Game.
    • The Finale Game is played. Once it has completed, the players vote to determine who shall hold the title of Season 4 Champion.

    The setup:

    MOUNTAINOUS
    12 Vanilla Townies
    3 Mafia Goons

    We’re going back to basics for Season 4. Each season we’re changing it up, and for this season it’s finally time to play without any power roles or abilities at all. Pure mafia. You have only yourself and your reading/bluffing abilities to count on.

    Relevant mechanics info:
    • Day start.
    • Deadline Lynch w/ Option for Majority starting Day 2. I.e. when day timer runs out, person with most votes will be lynched. However, day can also be ended early (starting Day 2) if there is ever a majority of votes on one person.
    • If there is a tied lynch, one of the tied players will be randomly lynched.
    • No outside communication. I.e. you may not contact the other players outside of the thread (unless you are Mafia and wish to speak with your teammates).

    Timeline:
    • The Qualifying Games will be played in the months of May and June. Look further down for the exact schedule.
    • The Semi Finals (Wildcard Games) will be played in July.
    • The Finale Game will be played in August.

    Note on backups/subs:
    If your representative needs to sub out during a QUALIFIER, your community's backup will take their place, assuming 1) you've elected one, 2) they've registered a user on Mafia Universe, and 3) that I'm able to get a hold of them within a reasonable amount of time (i.e. with enough time left in the current phase for the sub to work with).

    If I can't get a hold of your backup, I will give the spot to a backup from one of the larger communities.

    If your representative needs to sub out during a WILDCARD or FINALE, your community's backup will NOT take their place. Instead the next person who was in line to receive a wildcard or finale spot will take their place.

    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.
    • 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. I.E. 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.

    YOUR CHAMPIONS

    1) Amanuensis



    REPRESENTING: 17th Shard

    NATIONALITY: United States

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2015

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: The 17th Shard, from where I am representing, and a few games of Turbo here on Mafia Universe, although I hardly count those as I was mostly fooling around.

    BIO:
    Before I talk about myself, I just want to apologize for my name being such a nuisance to vote for. We don't use a bot on our forum, so usually putting "Aman" in red text is enough.

    If there's one thing consistent about me, it's being ridiculously verbose. Compared to other players from the 17th Shard, my posts are much larger, and I'm usually the most frequent poster as well, although I suspect that won't be the case here.

    I used to keep track of things like accolades and stats, but the issue with that is I ended up getting way too competitive than what's ideal for our forum. As a result, I often rubbed one of our primary moderators the wrong way, which is a large part of the reason I wasn't sent to represent us the previous year, despite being one of most feared "high threat" players. Nowadays I am a lot more relaxed, although I do intend to bring my A-game for this.

    There's a very good chance this championship will be my last time participating in mafia games. As much as I love the analysis and deceit, I'm getting to the point in my life where I need to start cutting out vices in order to focus on following my dreams.

    For a glimpse into my personal life, I have been serving in the United States Marine Corps for the past 5 years, although for the past two I have technically been working for the Department of State. From the beginning of my career it was my intention to remain working for the government, but for various reasons I've decided that although I might be able to have a good life doing it, I don't think I can be happy if I continue to follow this path.

    Since I was 13 or so, it was my dream to become an author. It all started with play-by-post roleplaying on the Runescape Forums, which eventually lead to me creating my own website for my friends and I to use when we got sick of their creative restrictions. As we all grew older, however, real life began to get in the way, and my community had little else choice but to disband.

    A little over 2 years ago I stumbled upon The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson and I fell in love instantaneously. I know many people who have been inspired by his work, but it definitely reignited the spark in me that I thought I lost. After joining the 17th Shard, I was quickly recruited into the Sanderson Elimination forum, a host zone for Sanderson-themed, roleplay-focused mafia games, in which I have played dozens of games since, and even hosted a few myself.

    Most recently I ran a Stormlight Archive game that really convinced me that if I put everything I had into writing, I could succeed. All it took was 10 days of me sitting at a computer dedicated to nothing but writing to produce a total of 43,175 words of flavor, which is nearly a small novella on its own. It was at that moment I realized that becoming an author wasn't as farfetched as people convinced me it was, and I have since been determined to see my dreams through.

    What did I tell you? Ridiculously verbose. I probably should have spoilered most of this, but now it'd be too awkward to fit it in somewhere, and... oh I'll just shut up now.

    Good luck, everyone, and more importantly, have fun.my all anyway as always and hope I survive at least one day. Let's be friends and have fun!

    REPRESENTING: The Org

    NATIONALITY: 'Merican

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2009

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: civfanatics, twcenter, giantitp, the .org

    BIO:
    Hailing from the swamps of civfanatics NotW, auto has built up a reputation as a semi-lurker who either gets killed early or emerges late with detailed (and usually wrong) analysis of scum-teams. The prospect of being forced into the high-talk realm of the championships drew him, like a moth to a bug-zapper.




    3) Azure

    NATIONALITY: United States

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): Unknown?

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: StickPage, Mafia Universe

    BIO:
    I cook, I work in a hotel, I'm getting my Master's Degree currently. I am incredibly dull.




    4) Brandon



    REPRESENTING: Supercell Games

    NATIONALITY: American

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2014

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: CoC OT

    BIO:
    Hello everyone! My name is Brandon, and I enjoy the game of mafia. My favorite role is probably the doctor, because I love helping the town stay alive. My best achievement in any mafia game ever is healing someone that the mafia were trying to kill. I like rainbows and sunshine and you can totally always trust me 24/7! I prefer pats on the back instead of stabs in the back.

    ...in all seriousness, if you're trying to utilize this biography to analyze me - don't. We're all here because we've pulled of some pretty amazing stunts on our own forums, and I'm no different from any other player in that regard. Good luck, and may the best of the best win.


    Reppin' the CoB from CoC,

    Brandon

    NATIONALITY: Estonian

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2013

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: EscapeRestart

    BIO:
    I've played around 15 games so far, all of them lasting weeks, if not months, so adjusting to the 72/24 timeframe is going to be interesting. I favour third party roles, because they allow for more freedom in gameplay than team based roles, like townies and mafiosi. I'm a fairly dramatic player and I enjoy making risky plays a lot, especially when I don't have to worry about letting my teammates down. That's about it, looking forward to my first Mafia Championship and I'm definitely interested in seeing how people from other communities approach the game.

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: Feed The Beast, MU and EpicMafia (the real-time game, not the forum)

    BIO:
    One of the first members to join the Feed The Beast forums in 2012. Formerly a Mafia player on an indefinite hiatus, now apparently a replacement in my first championship season.

    I'm currently a 19 y/o high school ("Gymnasium") student. I am the creator of FredBoat, the 4th biggest Discord bot there is seeing over 3.4M users. Real men test in production. I'm also sometimes confused to be a robot and/or a werewolf.

    I have strong support from my home community with which I haven't spoken to in months:

    NATIONALITY: America

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2015

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: AoPS

    BIO:
    They call me the Black Mamba. They call me the Baby-faced Assassin. But no one calls me a King. They call me a God. They means myself.

    For the past two years, I’ve been playing mafia pretty hardcore on a math site called AoPS for two years. Have had an 85% scum winrate on that forum plus a 66% winrate as a townie. At times I love mafia; at times it’s the most annoying thing in the world. Excited to play in the championship with great players. For all it's worth, I'm Asian.

    LET’S GO CLEVELAND

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2015

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: MafiaUniverse, Paradox Interactive, Smogon, others

    BIO:
    Ahoy! I'm lute and I like pumpkins. Do you like pumpkins? If so, I doubt you like them as much as I do. It's not a competition though so we can still be friends it's ok I don't mind. I play the flute and I like heavy metal. These trivial facts are very important so please write them down for later use as they will be on the test. I practice witchcraft and stand at a height of 196 centimeters. I haven't been playing Mafia for very long but I really enjoy how it lets me meet new people and then lie to them and shoot them in the face.

    The first Championship game kicks off on the anniversary of the day I joined MU, so that is both exciting and a good omen. I'm the fearless leader of the moderation team here but don't hold that against me. I only just now realized I've been a mod here for longer than I was a regular member, wowzers. Anyways I'm just here to have a good time and spread a few laughs so let's all have fun because if you don't want want to have fun then your life will be sad and meaningless and every day will be a dark torturous abyss from which you will never escape and your favorite pet will explode and you'll be really itchy like all the time.

    Cons: Bit of a control freak, hasn't said a straight word since the day he was born, occasional showboater.

    Hey guys, I am Maribro, the mafia representative for QLDSmash.com. QLDSmash.com is a website for all Australian Super Smash Bros. players. In my home state of Western Australia, I am a tournament organiser (TO) and top player in both Smash Bros for Wii U and Project M. If you'd like to know more about my results as a player, check out https://qldsmash.com/Players/WA?p=Maribro . I began playing mafia when one of the site mods started up a game for it. Since the first game, I have entered every single subsequent one and even attempted to run a couple of games. I've really enjoyed all my mafia experiences thus far and am looking forward to playing with some vastly more experienced players in this game. My favourite role thus far has been mafia, and my best performance to date was being a mafia player with 2 people who hadn't played the game before, myself and another player with decent experience. We managed to win without losing a player https://qldsmash.com/Forum/Thread/co...200-aest.344/1 check out that game here! So that's me anyways, thanks for reading!

    BIO:
    I guess I’ll just do some fact thing here…
    -I don’t really have a favorite role, though I don’t like roles like cop or doctor since I tend to get nightkilled too often.
    -I hate godfather. It’s the role I’ve gotten the most as mafia, and a good percent of the time I’ve been bussed. More than once with my teammate claiming a copcheck.
    -I’ve played two startrek themed mafias and got cop in both. One a town member lynch redirected on me because they thought I was scum, when really I was just nervous being cop for the first time ever. Second one I got vig killed because a town member thought I was scum. Both were in the first two phases I believe.
    -I’ve one four awards. Two for best single mafia performance, one for best mafia team performance, and one for most committed user. Five awards if my sexiest player one is counted.
    -I try to be playful in mafia in addition to my seriousness.
    -I hate cases based entirely off someone being something like aggressive. Which is what my playstyle is known for.
    -I can get a bit sarcastic.

    Favorite role: In our community, we have a seer role every game. Extremely fun to play as, given that you don't die in the first few rounds.

    I am a very new player and there are so, so many people on my home site who are better qualified to compete in this than I am. I will try to do them justice. I like to be active and somewhat (and that's being generous)aggressive.

    Interests: Reading, writing, and drawing (even though I can barely draw a straight line). Artistic stuff basically.

    I look forward to playing with you all.

    I've been playing mafia for a long time, on a lot of sites. I don't even like mafia all that much, but I do like solving things and figuring things out, and mafia is a reasonable medium for that.

    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.

    Milo came home to a phone call. He picked it up and stretched himself out comfortably on the sofa to answer it.

    "Hi Ralph."

    "Hi Milo. Are you doing anything?"

    "I'm not doing anything. What is there to do?"

    "Nothing, I guess. Nothing is fun anymore."

    "Right. Everything's a big waste of time. When I'm in school, all I wanna do is be out. When I'm not in school, I wanna be someplace else. If only something could happen some time..."

    Milo was interrupted by a rough THUD. He sat up to check it out and...


    "Hey Ralph, there's something funny in my bedroom."

    It was...interesting, to say the least. Milo didn't think it was his birthday, so why would this be here? He got up to take a look at the box, and it came with a card.


    He pulled on the bow, and the box suddenly started unpacking and assembling itself into a gateway! It was a magic tollbooth, offering him passage to the places of his wildest imagination.

    A speaker on the tollbooth said that opening the box entitled him to the following tools for his journey:
    • an automobile
    • a Book of Rules and Regulations
    • a map drawn by an expert cartographer
    • precautionary signs to be used in a precautionary manner
    and enough of a fare to pay the tollman.


    "Where do you want to go?" asked the booth operator.

    "I don't know," responded Milo.

    "Ah-ah-ah. Rule number 8A: All travelers must have a destination. Pick one out."

    Milo looked at the map, his eyes settling on the place he mumbled: "The...Castle in the Air."

    "The Castle in the Air, by way of Dictionopolis, Digitopolis and all points west!" the booth operator announced.

    And with that, Milo paid his fare and drove off into parts unknown.

    Has longest bio. Most of it has nothing to do with Mafia. Doubts anyone from the 17th Shard is surprised.

    FYI, I didn’t write this. No idea how it got added onto the end there.

    Biography aside, my time zone is UTC+01:00, however, I am currently working the night shift and will continue to do so throughout June. Therefore I will likely be the most active between 4 PM EST (9 PM GMT) and 11 PM EST (4 AM GMT). Depending on the day, my being active during other hours will be haphazard, as it largely depends on things like physical training, meetings, security drills, community events and ranges.

    Furthermore, I very likely will go out with coworkers and drink, if I have a good day off to do it. For example, this Saturday (the 10th) I intend on meeting up with some friends at a bar, so I would not expect much activity from me that day, nor would I anticipate the best quality posts the following morning (depending on how much I drink).

    While I would love it if players went ahead and posted their own timezones / hours, I won’t try to force it. I am known for keeping fairly thorough notes, and the website I hail from very often creates activity tables to show when players are most likely going to be active, so it would help me immensely, and if it’s possible to post tables on MU like it is on the 17th Shard, I am fully prepared to share that with you (if not, I’m sure I can use a snipping tool to make an image of it).

    Usually when a game begins, I like to give advice for roles, which is completely irrelevant here, so I guess I’ll just move on to voting.

    ##Vote autolycus

    One of my personal mafia pet peeves is lurking, and as a result, my typical strategic focus is generating as much discussion as possible. I prefer to ask player’s questions to accomplish this, but given how the game is just now starting, I think a “poke vote” will have to suffice.

    My philosophy on discussion is that more is always better than less, regardless of the alignment of those who are talking. If every villager is highly active, then the eliminator cannot simply target the most vocal players to reduce the village’s ability to coordinate and solve. Furthermore, if an elim is forced to talk just as often, it could potentially force them out of their comfort zone and slip. Not only that, but in the event that we lynch an eliminator, every additional post they made increases the chances of us figuring out each other’s alignments.

    I’m aware that what I’m saying is obvious, but for the ~2 years I’ve played elimination games, I find myself having to remind players anyway. I don’t know if it’s laziness or complacency, but activity deceleration is a very real problem, especially in the late game. I hope that with this being the championship, we won’t have this issue, but for anyone else that has been spectating previous matches, I’m sure you’ve seen it occur a few times, too.

    Since it’ll be obvious by me posting this as soon as the thread officially open, I typed this during the Pregame. It is currently 10:21 PM at the time of me finishing this post. 2 hours and 38 minutes remain on the timer. Why am I saying this? Because it means I know my alignment, and you all are welcome to infer what it is from this.

    my timezone is EST (UTC-05:00) and I'm most active between 6PM and 7AM for reasons

    did you vote for autolycus because of alphabetical order?

    I watched phantom tollbooth exactly once, I consider this a good enough prerequisite :ok_hand:

    Coffee's great, not really a tea fan tbh

    EST as well here, I'm currently doing some summer courses but I should be on several times during the day minimum, so shouldn't be a problem.

    UTC-8/US PST. Rarely are my hours consistent on a day to day basis though as I work from home, and mafia is a sporadic sanity break for me rather than something I dedicate certain times for, generally.

    Tea! Preferably with raspberries. Coffee is toxic sludge that smells terrible and tastes worse.

    Kind of like Lute's inquiry as to nature of the autolycus vote. I figured it was random, but didn't quite connect the dots to the alphabetical order. Pretty thin obviously, but shows some kind of consideration.

    Lute...

    I thought about challenging you to a $#@!posting duel, but we both know you could out post me blindfolded and I could never live up to the twins. :P

    Hi everyone!

    I thought I was wordy but Aman definitely beats me.

    I've said this in the sign up thread, but just fyi I am walking out the door right now and won't be back until late tonight. I have several things scheduled for tomorrow, so I'll be around in bits and pieces in between those things. If I'm behind at all, I'll be able to catch up in full on Wednesday. Depending on how things go tonight, you might see me around here and there. (I'm in a pool league and I never know how things are going to go when I'm not playing and I suck at phone posting.)

    Oh hi Voxxicus. I hope you're town!

    Hello all, second time in one of these champs games. I'm not a particularly strong mafia player, I simply go off of my gut and pretty much play as I feel. I've only one real play style, so anyone who remembers me probably remembers that I'm terrible no matter what.

    Let's get along.

    Not sure what to expect, but let's stray away from using bios to read people.

    I've never liked people that post a ton of fluff and fancy it up to look verbose. This game is about information processing; condense the info and say what you need to say without fluff.

    Good luck everyone!

    How serious is that vote? Aka do you think the verbosity is actually alignment indicative in this case?

    To vote, click the checkmark and you can scroll down the list to find the player. Need their exact name for vote to count.

    That's fine if you don't like people posting fluff or fancying up their posts up, but I did neither of those things, so naturally I disagree with this vote. I'll go ahead and assume this is an attempt to generate discussion rather than because you think I'm evil, so for that reason I see no reason to retaliate.

    Sure. My thought process here is: eliminators (mafia/wolves/scum) don't like players who talk a lot. Considering that a large portion of my post was about how my strategy involves generating as much discussion as possible, I immediately will be flagged as a priority target. Generally an eliminator challenging a player like this so soon in the game would be far too risky, as it draws attention to themselves, so for that reason I'm leaning Brandon village. That and the fact that he appears to not even read the content of my post, but instead was simply triggered by how long it was.

    Considering the game just began, I'm figuring he's just a villager reacting to circumstance, rather than an eliminator attempting to genuinely shade me.

    I guess I should have talked about this pregame, but my wedding is in about a month, and I'm kind of a bundle of stress due to related issues + current living situation. I'm using mafia as an escape to distract me from things, but I would appreciate if no one took the route of trying to intentionally tilt or upset me to generate an emotional reaction, because that is not going to end well for anyone given stress levels.

    There's no need to walk on eggshells around me, just a kind of general warning that my stress and activity levels could be influenced by upcoming OOG events.

    Back to regularly scheduled gaming.

    It's the 'I see no reason to retaliate' thing. Like, he can think you are scum, and be town himself, or think you are scum, and be scum pushing to lynch you - but this looks like a blanket thing where anyone that actually thinks you are scum is someone that you'd call scum, rather than trying to figure out their alignment.

    Not quite articulating things well perhaps.

    since you don't have meta to fall back on, how are you going to approach this game?

    ##Vote Aman

    I've never liked people that post a ton of fluff and fancy it up to look verbose. This game is about information processing; condense the info and say what you need to say without fluff.

    Good luck everyone!
    That's fine if you don't like people posting fluff or fancying up their posts up, but I did neither of those things, so naturally I disagree with this vote. I'll go ahead and assume this is an attempt to generate discussion rather than because you think I'm evil, so for that reason I see no reason to retaliate.
    Can you talk to me a little bit more about this?
    Sure. My thought process here is: eliminators (mafia/wolves/scum) don't like players who talk a lot. Considering that a large portion of my post was about how my strategy involves generating as much discussion as possible, I immediately will be flagged as a priority target. Generally an eliminator challenging a player like this so soon in the game would be far too risky, as it draws attention to themselves, so for that reason I'm leaning Brandon village. That and the fact that he appears to not even read the content of my post, but instead was simply triggered by how long it was.

    Considering the game just began, I'm figuring he's just a villager reacting to circumstance, rather than an eliminator attempting to genuinely shade me.
    If you think his reaction was villa then why did you give away something you consider a tell for scum players to fall into?

    It's the 'I see no reason to retaliate' thing. Like, he can think you are scum, and be town himself, or think you are scum, and be scum pushing to lynch you - but this looks like a blanket thing where anyone that actually thinks you are scum is someone that you'd call scum, rather than trying to figure out their alignment.

    Not quite articulating things well perhaps.[/QUOTE]

    Not intended to be a blanket thing. I just meant for this scenario, I don't think he's suspicious, so I'm not going to OMGUS him.

    yee thingy tried to make groups of people who wouldn't have meta advantages

    since you don't have meta to fall back on, how are you going to approach this game?

    Hey Azure, talk to me about one thing someone has done this game that makes you lean slightly town or scum on them so far.

    That's less of a scum tell and more of a village tell, I think, but to answer your question, I'm not a fan of the "keep reads to yourself" style of play, especially in a vanilla game with a closed thread during the night phase. The more glimpses we get of each player's perspective on each other, the easier this game can be solved.

    Plus I really see no harm in anything I just said. I doubt that any elims would have voted for me at this stage in the game, and now their only options are to do what they were probably going to do anyway or try attempt what Brandon did themselves, which I would notice and take note of.

    Nothing really speaks to me yet, but I tend to start getting my engine revving day 2 anyways. It's always been my view that, no matter what, any reads you get D1 are probably going to be inaccurate or inconclusive because you've really got nothing to base anything on. There's no definitively "scummy" behavior nor definitively "town" behavior, and with cross-community games,things are even harder to read.

    So yeah, I've got no favorites either way really, and I'm mostly going to be waiting.
    Is a sig without GIFs truly a sig?

    I disagree with pretty much all of this but. Kind of think it comes from town.
