    Welcome to MCU Villains Mafia!

    RULES

    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, rabb.it hangouts, 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.

    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, post editing, trolling, or thread derailment will also not be tolerated, and operates on the "1 warning, then replacement/mod-kill" paradigm. I reserve the right to bring back in any previously eliminated player as a replacement at least once, unless that player had an investigative role and received results prior to being eliminated.

    Cycles and Voting

    All DPs will be 72 hours long or will end when someone is hammered (or VTNL is hammered). NPs will be 48 hours long; however, if all actions are submitted early, the NP may be concluded earlier. 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. DP extensions will be 12-24 hours; NP extensions will be 6-12 hours. Votes or unvotes cast in twilight will not be assessed. Once a lynch is secured, the DP immediately ends; you must refrain from posting after a lynch is announced or secured. Only two warnings will be offered in twilight reminding people to stop posting. Posting after the warnings may result in a mod-kill. A policy of majority (as opposed to plurality) lynching is in force for this game. You are not required to unvote before re-voting, but you are required to use the acronym "VTL" to preface your votes and to bold your votes. Sometimes, when I am in a hurry, I will do a ctrl+f search for "VTL" and "unvote;" so using those specific phrases is important for ensuring an accurate count.

    THEME

    There is no theme split between town and mafia. A "villain" is anyone who is classically considered a villain in the MCU movies. This includes characters that were originally villains but became heroes, or were originally heroes but became villains. It does not include characters that are heroes but made very bad mistakes. Deadpool does not count in the MCU movie list.

    LASTLY: All roles can be found in Drafter's Mafia role list.

    Bearman has linked a rickroll in the only scum game he's played, now again in this one. Coincidence? I think...

    I am posting here to clarify that yes I am online but currently am in a 'god exists' debate and will be busy IRL. In order to not get scumread for early inactivity, I post here to say hello.

    I have already got a grasp on the structure of this game, I believe.

    I am also certain that given that it's Marvel and the fact that the 'split' is not mentioned in the description in the OP, there are definitely third-party win conditions here.

    Also, I never ever support early bandwagon pressure until we agree that we are going to prey on everyone for outs until someone cracks/slips.

    I believe in information withheld or information dished out, no middleground. The Town either operates in a game of poker or chess (hidden information vs open information) and applies game theory like this.

    I know that I just said 'the town' in third person, I am one of the town but I always think in third-person in games, in fact the game where I used 'us' and 'we' the most, was the last game I was in here (where I was mafia). I will always interchangeably use these and it is not a slip, it is to do with my switching between different perspectives in how I think about strategy as I type out my thoughts.

    My pressure is for activity. And subsequent pressure will be for claims from people we find scummy.

    strange thing to mention out of the blue like that. What does that mean exactly? Did you play 'not safe' last game?

    You can see evidence that User is mafia here.
