[i]It was an unusual day in Gogville, a lazy rural town. Zchinque, the mayor, had been found murdered in his office early in the morning, in what seemed to have been a mob hit. There had long been rumours that the mayor had connections to the Mafia and organized crime, but until now most had taken it to be just that - rumours.
Following the discovery the local authorities put up a restriction, preventing anyone from leaving or entering the town. Whoever was responsible for the murder would still have to be in town. A meeting was called in the town square where the citizens of Gogville were going to find, and get rid of, the culprits. [/i]

Rules - Written by Zchinque
1. The moderator for the game is Zchinque (and hist alt MafiaScum) If you need me I can be reached at zchinque (at) gmail (dot) com.
2. All players have a vote, which they may give to any player. A vote may be withdrawn by unvoting. Once a player has more than 50% of the votes, that player will be lynched and the game will go to night. No amount of unvoting can prevent this.
3. A player may also vote nolynch. A majority of nolynch votes will end the day without a lynch.
4. Please remember to bold your votes and unvotes like this: Unvote MafiaScum, vote Zchinquie
5. Don't edit your posts! This is very important! Editing a post is grounds for being modkilled. Due to the forum software I must also ask you not to double post.
6. Please bold any requests for votecounts or questions to the moderator.
7. Do not discuss the game with anyone outside the thread, except for people specified in your role PM, and then only at such times as the PM specifies.
8. Do not quote or paraphrase too closely any PMs you receive from the mod. If you are afraid that your paraphrasing is too close, contact me and I'll take a look at it.
9. All players should post at least every 72 hours. If you expect to be away for more than 72 hours, please let me know either through PM or in the game thread. Failure to do this will result in me sending you a prod per PM to which you will have 48 hours to respond.
10. If you can no longer participate in the game, let me know and I will try to find a replacement.
11. All players on the winning team win, even if they are dead. Players who are modkilled or has replaced out will automatically lose the game.
12. All roles have been randomly assigned.

Here's a sample vanilla town role PM

Okay, most of you have confirmed, so let's get this game going.

A last reminder to everyone to read the rules, if you have not done so already.
In particular:
-Do no edit your posts
-Do not doublepost
-Do not quote any communication you have with the moderator
(I know I'm harping on this, but breaking these are grounds for being modkilled, and we would want to avoid that)

To those who have yet to confirm - make sure you read your role PM before posting.

The sun stood high in the sky as the villagers gathered in the town square. The sudden death of the Mayor had left everyone in a frightened state of mind. No one seemed to know exactly where to start, but before long accusations would be thrown back and forth.

It is now Day 1! Let's get lynching!

With 12 alive it takes 7 votes to lynch.
I'm having some problems with GOGpm right now, so if anyone can't access their role, or have any questions, look me up on Steam (username is Zchinque).

Also I suggest that all of you favourite this thread, so that you can easily see if there have been any replies or not, even if it falls to the second or third page.

Good luck to everyone, and have fun. :)

Well... shit.
Some players have intimated to me that they are a bit confused about the workings of the game. For a first game, that is to be expected really. The game isn't particularly hard to play, but it can be a bit rough to get in to it at first.

So, I'm not sure how much help it will be, but here is a link to one of my very first games. Perhaps reading a bit of that, can help you on your way.

I'm not basing this on anything, but I think the butler did it.
Considering that Titanium is so readily willing to accuse the poor butler (Who ever
so obviously did it - the butler ALWAYS does it!) I am sure he just an overzealous, poor police office and thus not worthy of lynching.
While we're at it, Damnation, where were you on the night of *sniffs the body*... yesterday evening.

Everyone else, in case he starts sweating, get your pitchforks sharpened.
Eating dinner and watching discovery channel! And playing Metro 2033, then going to bed. Why? Where were YOU yesterday evening?!
You're very quick to be playing the blame game there, Titanium... first the butler, then Damnation... hmm...
well, based on all the games I looked over on, these games dont really get going without random voting. Therefore...

vote nmillar
GoJays2025: That's true, but I must stay in character for my readers. You see, I'm a writer of sorts, and for my debuting (what? don't laugh) masterpiece I think fate has inspired me towards a Detective book.

Or maybe a political satire.... hell, who says I can't have both.
Nazarush: well, based on all the games I looked over on, these games dont really get going without random voting. Therefore...

vote nmillar
I win? Oh wait ...
Well, considering my status in our quiet little town, I can tell that the most optimal solution to our conendrum is the Mayor himself. He had the mob ties, and he probably also ordered the police to perform their lockdown, in effect forcing us all upon each other, so the rest of the world can watch and laugh as we tear each other to shreds like wild beasts!

We must think of the children!
[i]After the crowd has gathered, Titanium is the first to speak.
"I read three Agatha Christie novels last night, and in all of them the butler did it. So, err.... anyone here a butler?"
"Titanium is obviously a cop, because only cops care to read those boring crime novels", Damnation smirks, "so let's not lynch him."
Nazarush had his own suggestion, "Let's just lynch nmillar, get home early, have a nice dinner, perhaps even a bath, and then we can go from there. Besides, there's a new episode of Two and a Half Men tonight, and I wouldn't want to miss it!".
Everyone looks at him confused.[/i]

Votecount the first!

nmillar - 1 - Nazarush

With 12 alive it takes 7 to lynch.
