Hi, everyone. Welcome to GOG Mafia game #59

This is a game of forum Mafia. Please don't post here unless you've been directed here from the sign up thread or PM, or were otherwise told by the admin that you should post here. Exception: anyone may make a single bump post if a player asks for it in the admin thread. You may also use an alt-user to make a bump post.

Direct any queries you may have to the the the General Discussion and Administration Pages or to me via PM.

Rules:

0. ZFR is the moderator for this game. If you have any issues, contact him via PM. Lifthrasil is the backup host; whatever he says it's as if I said it myself.

1. Cryptoclaiming is forbidden.
(In short, cryptoclaiming is having everyone fullclaim in some sort of, preferably nearly unbreakable, code, which makes it all but impossible for the mafia to win.)

2. Betting among players is strictly forbidden.

3. Real Life issues and situations should and will always take priority over what happens in the game. If a player presents a real life issue as a reason on why they need a bit more time or are temporarily unavailable to partake normally in the game that reason should be accepted and respected by everyone else (including the mod). Everyone should always treat real life problems/situations in a gentlemanly manner and never try to make accusations or gain leverage in the game based on that. If these issues become too overwhelming the incapacitated player should inform their mod and ask for a replacement as soon as possible or if they are unable to do so the mod should take steps in finding a replacement for them. Everyone should be playing the game for fun and treat each other with the necessary respect. Therefore we shall always assume that every real life reason for inefficient participation in the game is 100% real and has to be taken as such. We shall also count on everyone playing the game to show proper respect and sportsmanship to their fellow players and the mod by never abusing this "free pass". If someone is caught taking advantage of everyone's good will they will be immediately allowed to find another place to play forum mafia.

4. Have fun and enjoy the game. While shouting at each other is expected in a game of mafia, please remain civil to your fellow players.

5. You don't need to unvote, but your votes should be bolded. Unbolded votes will not be counted.

6. Please bold any questions you have for me, so it's easier for me to see them. Please do not use bold for any other reason, if you need to stress a point, use italics or underline instead.

7. It goes without saying that discussing this game outside this thread is prohibited.

8. Do not edit your posts for any reason. Remember there is a forum feature that automatically merges posts made within 10 minutes. There is also a forum bug which prevents your post from appearing sometimes when it should appear on a new page. Making a second post in this case after less than 10 minutes can cause your post to be merged and appear edited.

9. If you die, stop posting in this thread. A single "bah" post is allowed and encouraged. Your "bah" post should not contain any game-relevant information.

10. You are expected to make a post at least once every 48 hours. If you need to be away for longer, please let me know in advance.

11. You may write about any flavour you receive in your PM (see Notes about the game below), including your name and role, but please do not quote any PM verbatim.

12. Breaking rules, depending on the severity of the infraction, can get you modkilled at my discretion. Getting modkilled can be hazardous to your health and usually means you lose regardless of whether your team wins or loses. It's also bad in general. Please don't get modkilled.
If there are extenuating circumstances, a modkill may not result in a loss, and a modkilled player may still win if their faction wins. Please note that not reading or forgetting the rules is not considered an extenuating circumstance.

13. Once a majority votes for a player, that player gets lynched. No amount of unvoting is going to help them.

14. If no majority vote is achieved before day ends, then no lynch takes place.

Notes about the game:

The format is going to be a C9++ game, without any twists. The twist will not involve any cult elements. Mainly because it doesn't exist.

I'm not good at flavour, so don't expect anything good there. I'll try my best to make it interesting though.

All kills, regardless of flavour text, are indistinguishable.

Note that anything in flavour is just fluff. Anything game related will be stated clearly. So please do not look into flavour text for any deep meaning. In fact, if I can't think of a good flavour explanation of something, then screw it, I'll just make it magically appear. If I need lightning from heaven to appear, then lightning from heaven will appear.
I'm stressing this again, since in my last game people did try to look into my PMs for meaning, despite being told that flavour is just fluff. It really is.

Names are just fluff. I only included them because it's nice to have names. A list of 13 names was made and randomised. So don't look for any alignment indication in names. They've been randomised. Randomised. Also, see note above about flavour.

random.org was used for all randomising.

Role PMs were taken directly from the C9++ page, with just the name added. So a sample Vanilla Townie PM will look like this:
Welcome, Lifthrasil, you are adaliabooks, a Vanilla Townie.
Abilities:
You have no abilities other than your voice and your vote.
Win condition:
You win when all threats to the town have been eliminated and there is at least one town player alive.

You must vote.

You know that you must vote. You have no idea who told you this or how you came to know it, but you know it's true. You must vote in order to lynch mafia.

It's funny because you can't even remember a time when you didn't know it. In fact you can't remember anything before... this.

You see 12 other people around you. And you know that they know they must vote too.

You take stock of your surroundings. It appears that you are on some sort of a deserted film set. Judging by the costumes it was a movie or TV show about superheroes. The setting looks to be a command center (of a spaceship?). You detect a slight flatulence smell, as if someone here has farted a lot. There is also a blue gemstone on one of the benches. You wander around, but other than that you find nothing of interest.

Only one thing left to do: time to vote.

Maybe voting will bring you the answers you seek.

Reserved. In case I need it.

Game has started. You may vote now.

Since dedo and Micro won't be in until Tuesday, I'll make the first Day last a bit longer.. D1 will not end before next Saturday. Depending on when the absentees make it.

Unless you lynch someone before that of course.

ZFR: 7. It goes without saying that discussing this game outside this thread is prohibited
Question: Would this include saying I love mafia/I love being included in the latest mafia game or similar comments? If so could you explain the reasoning behind such a blanket ban of any discussion outside the thread?

TIA and thanks for giving me a chance to play

Don't talk about active games except in the game thread. If you have questions or uncertainties, then PM the mod.

Unless you have access to a QT. You can ask questions in the QT if/when it is open. Scum.

Vote GameRager.

ZFR: Hi, everyone. Welcome to GOG Mafia game #55
Oh cool, I've seen that one, and it definitely was my favorite! :D


Also, yay, voting!

vote scene - let's sort you out while we can still afford the distraction.

Also, also, anyone want to claim that blue gemstone as theirs? Otherwise I call dibs!

@New(ish) players: Be very certain to actively and closely READ the C9++ wiki page and understand the meaning of what you read there. Really, take some time to think about the consequences of how the setup is determined.

[Channeling HSL] Are scum the only people who would "shift a bad light" on others?

Yes, when others do it they/we expose bad guys/gals.

Because even what you think is an innocent remark might give metareads. e.g. you might say "I love mafia, even if it can be boring at time" in an outside thread, to which few of the other players have access and this might cause those other players to think that since you mentioned "boring" it might mean you're vanilla this time.
Of course it could be a bluff on your part, but nevertheless some players now have access to info that other players don't have.

Technically saying "I love Mafia" in general should be ok (as opposed to "I love Mafia game #59") but if you really do mention anything which could have some bearing on this game, I'd really appreciate if for full disclosure's sake you inform me.

Thank you for the explanation(and also sorry for not directing it to your PM...I missed that part of your OP post in my initial scan of it).

I will keep everything about the game outside of saying I love mafia/similar to myself and anything else I have questions about I will send to your PM. :)

By all means you may ask here if you think it might benefit other players. Either here or PM is fine.
