Ever heard of mafia? Ever played mafia? Either way if not you are missing alot.

The Basics of Mafia

In a game of mafia, the 2 basic roles are Townie and Mafioso. In this game, the town will be made up of those trying to figure out who killed everyone and stop them from killing again. For the town to win, they must kill all members of the mafia. Most townies have only one tool: the lynch.

-While the game is in "Day" mode, any player may post in the thread. They may also FOS or Vote.

-FOS stands for Finger of Suspision. It has no direct bearing on the game, but it is a nice way to let everyone know who you are suspicious of.

-When any one player has reached a number of votes equal to the majority of the players in the game, that player will be lynched and the game will go into night.

-You may only be voting for 1 player at a time. If you want to change your vote, you must type Unvote before doing so.

-Votes, Unvotes, and FOSes should be bolded. (ex. VOTE: Puzzle or FOS: CropCircles)

There are 2 roles that are very common in mafia games that will be used in this game as well. The Cop and the Doctor, which are both town roles.

-During the night, the Cop may send me the name of 1 player he would like to investigate. I will then reveal to the Cop whether that player is a mafioso or a townie.

-The Doc sends me the name of a player that he would like to protect. That player will be immune to nightkills for that night. (Note: The doc may not protect himself)

The mafia, or those who killed everyone, will win when they exceed or equal the town in number(at which point, they control the lynch). They may also post during the day and use both Votes and FOSes. However, they have another tool: the ability to nightkill.

-While the game is in night, the mafia may communicate with each other.

-Then, one of them will send me the name of 1 player to be killed.

-Once I have received the mafia's Night Choice, as well as the choice of any other player with a Night Ability, I will post a morning scene, and Day will start.

There may or may not be other roles in this game. For reference, here are a few other possible roles:

-Vigilante: The Vigilante is a killer on the Town side who can either choose to kill every night, or choose to kill a certain number of times during the game, depending on the variation.
-Back-up Doc: Assumes the Doctor's abilities after the Doctor dies.
-Back-up Cop: Assumes the Cop's abilities after the Cop dies.
-Role blocker: Chooses one player per night to block from performing his or her Night Choice.
-Mason: The Masons are a group on the Town's side who know each other to be townies and can talk to each other at Night.

The Newbie Rules of Mafia

1. Votes: Bold your votes and unvotes. They should look like this VOTE: SorryGuy. Unvote before casting a new vote, by typing Unvote, also in bold. Any votes or unvotes not in bold will not be counted. You may vote No Lynch, and a majority of these votes will end the day without a death.

2. Do not quote my PM's. Breaking this rule results in an instant modkill.

3. Do not speak about this game outside this thread unless it is night and your role intends you to do so.

4. Please do not edit or delete your posts no matter how stupid a mistake you made.

5. Once you’re dead, you’re dead, so stop posting. You may have one 'goodbye post', but if it contains any strategy or information, your side instantly loses.

6. If you have a night choice to make, it is due by the posted deadline. I will not wait for you – if you do not submit a choice to me, tough! No choice will be made.

7. Executions will require a simple majority of votes. Once a player has reached the necessary majority, his pleas are useless and any attempts to unvote will be unheeded.

8. If you are requesting a mod prod or vote count, bold your request so that I can see it more clearly.

9. I want this game to keep moving so I expect everyone to post at least once every two days and if you don't you will receive a prod on the third day. If you still haven't posted I will take further action. If you anticipate being unavailable for more than a 48-hour period, please post a notice to that effect in the thread or PM me.

10. Remember this is a game. Games are about having fun. Do your best to do so.

11. Lastly and most importantly. Respect me and the rest of the players. I'd rather not have to modkill any players. That's no fun for any of us.

Sounds like fun? In this game you will be Pokemon, good and evil. So, sign-up quick and roles will go out. Twelve max please. The following are playing:
