Lately there has been a string of bastard spiders, selected roles, and backstabbing nations. We’ve seemed to have lost ourselves in the grandiose. But it’s time we go back. Back to basics. Back to roots. Back to where it all began. Let’s set the stage. Many many many moons ago the lovely wrathofmegs started a game on the mothership. Over the years since, that game grew and evolved and shifted homes a couple of times until it came to be what we know in NGA today. But this game is going to throw back to those early games, utilizing the basic roles it utilized, and the game structure it bore. Let’s start with the structure, parametered in the rules of the game.

Rules:

1. Do not discuss the game outside of the game thread except in the methods provided to you by the GO.
2. Once you have been removed from the active roster you are no longer allowed to post in the game thread or other quicktopics you have been provided by the GO.
3. Players may post during either day or night phases. They may not post in hard to read colors or “invisitext”, however.
4. Players are encouraged to show signs of activity, either overtly or covertly at least once every 48 hours. Failure to do so may result in replacement without warning.
5. The game will start in the night phase. During this phase players with roles choices to make will submit their choices. If a choice isn’t made by deadline, it will be taken as an election to not use the ability.
6. The Night phase will be proceeded by a “Dawn” period. During this period, the player who was killed the night before will be notified of their death and will be provided three clues with which they will craft their “death post” (posted by the GO). Votes during this time will not be counted.
7. Clues in death posts will point to Town, Mafia, and be red herrings altogether.
8. Day will officially be deadlined when the “death post” is posted by the GO. For the remainder of the day players will discuss the events of the previous night, the clues, and typical mafia style analysis. Players will also vote for whom they wish to see lynched, the player with the highest number of votes at the end of the day will be lynched.
9. Votes will be PM’d to the GO, votes in the thread will not be counted. There will be no running vote counts throughout the day. At the end of day, however, the final vote count will be made public.
10. In the event of a tie, random votes will be removed until there is a clear lynch leader.
11. The game will continue in this method until one of two outcomes occurs: The town has eliminated all mafia aligned players or the mafia outnumbers the current living town aligned players.

Things to keep in mind are as follows:
Each Role PM will be uniquely crafted, so meta’ing from them will be pointless.
Players are not allowed to edit anything posted to the game thread for any reason.
Questions concerning the game should be PM’d to the GO. Remember that no question is too small.
Be polite. I will modkill for unsportmanlike conduct.
Have fun. This is a game after all.

So now that we have our basic structure down, let’s talk roles. In the beginning there was only a handful to go around. This means that a bulk of the game is what we affectionately refer to as being “Vanilla”, ie they have no abilities beyond just talking in the thread. Town’s power will be supplemented by two roles this game. The first is the traditional cop. They will select a player each night and learn their alignment. The second will be a BodyGuard. They will select a player to protect each night, however, a successful protection will mean the BodyGuard dies in the targets place. Finally there will be a mafia Don (not to be confused with Godfather). The Don is simply the mafia member responsible for sending in the kill order to the GO. If the current Don dies, another will succeed him from the Goon ranks. So now that you know what to expect and how this game will be played, let’s get started...

Active Roster:
2. Gobo_Scarlet
4. Neosilk
5. Mongoose
6. KingofDominaria
7. Hello World
11. Niklor
12. seTiny

Dead as a Doornail
1. Zinger2099
8. Aaarrrgh
3. Shippo
10. Rubik
9. Freddeh

I'm here! I'm still fairly new to the whole mafia thing, but this seems a lot easier to keep up with than Spider-Man mafia. Also, I am not a goblin this time.

So, do we want any N1 discussion? Considering the fact that there is a kill coming, I'm just dreading the idea of dying without actually getting to play...

I'll make a claim.
I am vanilla town, and, as proven in my mafia history, not very good at this game.

I really wonder how the "secret votes" are going to impact things.

@mod:will we know if the bodyguard was killed or died due to it's own ability?

I think it would be better if we still voted in the thread in addition to the PM, I still need to think about it, but for now I think that town has more to lose from hidden votes.

We probably want the procedure to be: send PM, check if it has been correctly formatted, notify the thread.
The opposite might give the mafia more chances of counterplay.

I agree with HW. Transparency can only help town.

Indeed, as town you will always want to avoid lying as it only kneecaps the town. The same goes with voting. Unlike scum, town has nothing to hide. Don't give others reason to suspect you by making questionable plays like saying you will vote for X, but instead vote for Y.

@HW: Order won't matter because, as town, we are seeking to be, as Neo put it, transparent. Because of this, mafia will always know what we are planning to do so they can always adjust.

I propose we lynch 15377, it's always a solid choice



If I am reading the rules correctly the day will end based on a deadline. There is no mention of an day ending when a player hits majority votes. If this is correct and with the no running vote counts through the day order of PM vote vs Public vote doesn't really matter.

This is about as opposite as you can get from Spider-Man XD.
