Welcome to another installment of Virt's Mafia. This game, like the last one, will be an open setup and themeless. I am aiming to get 9-13 players.
THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE OF THEM ALL
NEVER discuss this game with other players outside of this Game Thread (regardless of whether you are alive or dead), unless your Role PM gives you explicit permission to do so (i.e. if you are part of a non-village team or a masonry).
This means that you are NOT allowed to send someone even seemingly innocuous messages such as "Wow, this <insert player name> is pretty wacky, huh?", or "this mafia game is pretty fun", or "I'm so busy right now, which is why I'm barely even posting in the game".
If another player references the game to you outside of the Game Thread, please PM me immediately.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE EDIT YOUR POST! I CONSIDER THIS TO BE A SERIOUS BREACH OF GAME INTEGRITY AND WILL RESULT IN AN IMMEDIATE MOD KILL!
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.
- The day phase shall last for 72 hours and night phases shall last for 24 hours, or until everyone checks in.
- Dead players may continue to talk to their teammates after death
- Plurality lynching is turned on. If no one gets a majority of votes by the end of the day, then the person with the most votes will be lynched. In the event of a tie, I will randomly select a player to be lynched using random.org
- Day phases end will end immediately upon a lynch. If I am not present when the final vote is cast, I will ask that you refrain from chatting in the thread.
- To vote, bold VTL: Username. I strongly recommend that you tag me when you vote. It is not required to Unvote if you change your vote
- Observe all site-wide rules and the code of conduct.
- Don't be a dick towards each other.
- Once again, only discuss the game in this thread. Do not PM other players, unless your Role PM allows this. Additionally, do not post anything about the game in other threads on this forum, or on other forums.
- Do not share your Role PM. Sharing a screenshot of your Role PM is cheating, as would discussing the time stamp of your Role PM.
- Hydra'ing or multi-accounting is not allowed. Do not share your account with anyone else.
- Breadcrumbing your role is allowed. Secret codes requiring keys or anything resembling such is NOT allowed.
