    Welcome to Choose the Theme Mafia!

    I will outline the basics of three different themed mafia games below. When signing up you will get two votes. You can split them or vote both for one theme, your choice.

    Rainbow 6 Siege
    Based on the video game of the same name. Characters have specific role sets and therefore this game would tie characters to roles appropriately. There would be no clear mafia/town divide based on theme and you would not have to worry about your character giving away your alignment. There are 47 operators, and there is no sort of "main character" dynamic that makes any one operator more or less important to the game than others, so even if you aren't familiar with the theme you would be able to fake claim with relative ease.

    Pokemon
    Similarly to R6Siege, Pokemon would be tied closely to roles but not to alignments. Theme knowledge is even less important because there are hundreds of Pokemon you could fake claim, so both roles and characters would be easily faked. This would be based on the general world of Pokemon, not the show, movies, or games. There will explicitly be no human characters in this game.

    The Office
    A favorite of millennial that think that the show defines their personalities, this game would be based on the American version of The Office.

    For Pokemon and Siege, the game can be adjusted for anywhere between 9 and 17 players. For The Office I would need exactly 13 players.
    If The Office is the winning theme but gets less than 13 players, I will default to the 2nd highest-voted theme.

    RULES
    (Stolen from Bsh but with a serious modification in bold with regard to voting)

    Read all of the following information carefully. It will behoove you to do so.

    Activity

    You are required to make 10 posts per DP. At least 5 of those posts must be substantive. A substantive post is any post that advances the progress of the game. The determination of what is or is not a substantive post is mine, and mine alone, to make.

    Failure to meet this activity standard makes you eligible for replacement. If you know in advance that you won't be active, tell me ahead of time, otherwise I will have a lot less sympathy for you. For those who were insufficiently active but who had legitimate reasons for the low activity, I will expect you to make up for your inactivity in the next DP. You may receive 1 activity prompt in the last 24 to 12 hours of a DP; this is not guaranteed. A failure to get this prompt out to you will not excuse any inactivity.

    PM Etiquette

    Don't use PM structure, wincons, PM time stamps, or things of that ilk as points of analysis in the game. Discussion of these issues is strictly prohibited. You may not C/P anything from your PMs into the game or take photos of your PMs. There is to be no communicating via non-mod-initiated methods, even with teammates or hydra halves. This means there is to be no game-related discussion on G+ hangouts, Discord, unauthorized PMs on site, PMs offsite, etc. If you suspect or know that any such communication is taking place, you are obligated to inform me immediately.

    Remember, paraphrasing is your friend. You may only paraphrase PM content. An acceptable paraphrase should substantially change the original wording of the passage, and that change should be noticeably more than mere deletion, addition, or substitution. I am willing to pre-screen your paraphrases if I have time. Violation of the rules in this section ("PM Etiquette") are the most severe breaches of rules in my games, and will most likely result in instantaneous mod-kills.

    Other Issues

    Observe civil and good conduct. Except in cases of exceptional rudeness, anyone who violates the conduct policy will receive 1 warning. Violations past that warning will result in you being replaced or mod-killed. What constitutes civil and good conduct is at my discretion. Additionally, all players must play to their wincon. Attempts to throw the game will not be tolerated. Play to win. Finally, excessive spamming, trolling, or thread derailment will also not be tolerated, and operates on the "1 warning, then replacement/mod-kill" paradigm.

    Cycles and Voting

    All DPs will be 72 hours long unless all players agree to shorten them in the late-game or there is a majority lynch before the deadline. NPs will always be 24 hours unless all players individually agree. I am willing to grant extensions for the DPs or NPs upon request, but it will be at my discretion whether to grant those requests. Votes or unvotes cast in twilight (after the day has ended, via lynch or deadline, but before I have announced it officially) will not be assessed. Once a lynch is secured, the DP immediately ends; you must refrain from posting after a lynch is announced. Intentionally posting after the warnings may result in a mod-kill. I will be using a deadline lynch. This means that whoever has the most votes at the end of a day will be lynched, even if they do not receive the majority. If it is tied at the end of day, I will randomize the lynch between the tied players. If someone reaches a majority before the deadline, the day will immediately end. No-Lynch is still an option, but a plurality of players must explicitly VTNL. It will not be the default. You are not required to unvote before re-voting, but you are required to use the acronym "VTL"  or "Vote"to preface your votes and to bold your votes.

    Just want you to confirm with the deadline lynch since I added the rules after you signed up.

    I really love the deadline rule. Makes VTNL an actual play option.

    So what is the meta in the Town of Salem forums like?

    Asking because the meta here is likely different.

    Like, if ppl lynch? I barely see any nolynches and the games are rlly diverse so different kinds of metas for different games

    We have vanilla games, which have a bit of the same meta as sites like MU
    And standards where there are more power roles and they are mostly semi open
    And rlly crazy special games where everything is different every time

    No-lynching is pretty rare here as well. A standard game here also tends to be what other mafia communities would describe as "role madness" games. Having a role is much more common than not having one for town and scum.

    I have never played at ToS but I did a few games at MU once. The games here are much faster paced than MU. If a DP lasts over 3 days here it is usually considered to be overly drawn out.

    Also open or semi-open setups almost never occur here. The vast majority of games are closed setups.

    I'll let signups and voting run through Sunday and get the game started Monday. I'll start and end days at 6 PM EST, that way people should have some time at beginning of day and end of day isn't an inconvenient time.
