Welcome to the Meta Mafia Game!The Rules
This is a game that lovingly makes fun of, and shows homage to, all the previous mafia games that we have played on these forums. To fully appreciate this game, therefore, we recommend you peruse the Real World threads that show the previous games if you haven't read some of them already. We hope, however, that it is fun to read regardless of your investment in Lusternian mafia!
As a note: Just because a role was scum in a previous game, or town in a previous game, does not mean it is the same in this game. Do not expect powers or alignment to be 100% identical. Expect surprises.
1. Votes MUST be in bold to count. (ex. Vote Sylandra)
2. Once a majority has been reached, the day ends. Anything that happens after a final vote will not happen, including unvotes to bring the target below the minimum threshold, unless a power explicitly allows this.
3. You are not allowed to post in the thread during the night phases.
4. You are not allowed to communicate with each other outside the thread unless your role specifically allows you to do this.
5. Once you are eliminated, you are not allowed to post in the thread during the day phase unless your role explicitly allows this.
6. You are not allowed to quote your role PM.
7. Do not discuss game details outside of the game.
8. If you go inactive, please let me know so I can find a replacement player. (Those interested in being a replacement player, please message me for a waitlist!)
9. You're not allowed to edit your posts. Doublepost instead if you want to clarify something.
10. You must be sportsmanlike. If you are rude or inflammatory to the point that the game ceases to be enjoyable for the rest of the players, I reserve the right to modvig you out of the game. Mafia may be a game about emotional manipulation and deceit, but it's still a game! Have fun with it. But most importantly, be respectful.
11. The game will end when either the town or the mafia have reached their victory condition.
12. Dayphases will last no longer than a RL week. If seven days go by without a lynch, the Nightphase will immediately begin.
13. Nightphases will last no longer than 48 hours. If night actions are not delivered at the end of the night phase, it will be read as no action.
14. Some roles have post restrictions. While I encourage you to follow them, and I reserve the right to withhold votes if the post restrictions are not followed, they exist for fun more than anything else. I will be fairly lenient about their use or lack thereof.
