RULES CAN BE FOUND HERE

This is a beta test, point blank. It isn't going to be fancy and you're not going to be getting amazing Comahan-like writeups. It's just going to be a simple testing process where I throw the rules at you, assign the roles and teams, and have at it.

This is my first version of the game. During the creation process there was a totally different way that I could have gone about it, and I'll be testing that one out next time. Consider this to be Game A, and the other version to be Game B. That doesn't really matter at this point, but just for reference, this isn't the only version I came up with.

This will be a game based on roles seen in your typical mafia game (with a few new ones added!) but it is a whole different animal once you get past that. I'm fully aware that this could end up being a massive trainwreck, but I wanted to try something different in an attempt to do something new.

Constructive criticism regarding the gameplay is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. Random bitching is not.

---------

There are two major differences between this and a normal mafia game. First, there is NO LYNCH PHASE. This isn't based on night and day phases either, but rather RECRUITMENT and ACTION phases. Secondly, this is not a game based strictly on deduction like most mafia games. Deduction plays a part, but this game is just as much about teamwork and pure luck as it is deduction.


GAMEPLAY



When the game begins, there will be three teams of three players each. Those players will have preset abilities, with each team having the same ones. Essentially, every team begins with the same three base roles.

The first phase of the game is the RECRUITMENT phase. Those players that are not selected to be part of the base roles for each of the three teams will have a chance to be recruited by one of those teams. The three Team Leaders have been briefed as to how this phase will work. You are allowed to talk in the game thread during the recruitment phase, with those people not on teams doing their best to talk themselves into being recruited, while walking a fine line in trying not to talk yourself up so much that you're targeted for death.

Once you're recruited, your allegiance is directly tied to your new team, and your end game win condition will immediately be changed to aiding that team in securing victory. It is important to note that you might be killed BEFORE you are recruited to a team in this version of the game. It is random chance, and sending me messages bitching about not being recruited will do you no good. If you are not recruited, your sole purpose is to talk yourself onto a team.

Upon completion of the RECRUITMENT phase, you advance into the ACTION phase. This works exactly like the night phase does in your standard mafia game. Each team, as a team, will choose a single target to kill, and the Team Leader will PM me once a decision is made. Meanwhile, you will PM me your individual actions and once I have them all, I will update the thread with what has gone on, and we will go back to the RECRUITMENT phase. The RECRUITMENT phase is the only part of the game where you can openly communicate with your teammates, discussing strategy much in the way a mafia group would do during their night phase. Each team will have their own quicktopic thread for communication, and you must stick to that thread when speaking.


RULES



I. Do not PM anyone during the RECRUITMENT phase. If caught, it is an automatic modkill. This isn't a new rule.

II. When you're dead, stop posting. This isn't a new rule either.

III. If you do not send your actions to me within 24 hours of the thread being locked, you will be modkilled. I have less patience than Commie does!

IV. No editing your posts, posting in invisible text, posting in small text, or trying to be cute in any way regarding this rule. Please post normally.

V. No quoting my PMs in the game thread. You can say whatever you want to your teammates in the quicktopic thread during your ACTION phase, but quoting what is in a mod PM is a nono.


WIN CONDITIONS:


A team wins when it's members are the last remaining players in the game. A team loses when all of it's members are killed.

Extras

Seeing as how this is a beta test, and that this game is only setup for 24 players, I'll open signups but I'll ultimately be picking the people who participate. Don't be discouraged if you're not picked for this game as the next game will have six additional player slots.

* Special shout-out to Commie, who helped me refine a lot of my early thinking and role selection!

* I can also be reached on IRC almost every day, for added convenience.

*** UPDATE: It was pointed out to me that I messed up the writing of some of the early rules. To make this less confusing, if you're recruited on a team you have no restriction as to when you're allowed to talk to your team. My apologies, something I wrote incorrectly and overlooked.

Yeah, you gotta wait something stupid like a minute and a half between each PMs. So the fastest you can possibly do it is 36 minutes, but you'd need some sick timing.

I figured out an amazing way to do it... Just open multiple PMs. As long as the message is open the timer counts down or something for some reason. So if you open 24 PMs in different tabs you can type them all up and conceivably send them all at the same time.

Correct. There are no "good" or "bad" alignments here. I'm sick of how traditional Seers/Investigators work. Your alignment is based solely on what team you're on. Your goal is for your team to win.

This. Once I have the three lists the RECRUITMENT phase ends and the ACTION phase begins.

I already have one list. Just waiting on the other two teams to finalize theirs and send it.

On an aside here, since you can't talk during the ACTION phase teams should use the RECRUITMENT phase to plan their actions, which should include your team kill target. Remember, this is a game based heavily on teamwork.

I wouldn't call it a complete failure, but I've already scrapped a few roles that didn't work in this setting and I've been talking to a few people who were on teams from the start on how to improve it.

To those that weren't recruited early, I know that was boring as balls, so the next version of this game will be drastically different in that regard.

To those that got abilities that didn't necessarily work, that is on me. Especially you R4L, haha.

Yeah. The first version of Protector had the limitation that you couldn't protect the same person twice in a row. So you'd just have to switch it up. I wasn't sure how a lot of these roles would work when it came down to just a massive fight at the end, but a few of them, in their current state, just didn't work. I've nuked four roles and changed two others. It shouldn't be as boring or underpowered.

In that case if you Roleblock a Godfather he can be killed at night.

Off Mafia Scum
Typically, the Roleblocker only stops things the target tries to actively perform, such as Cop investigations and Doctor protection. Passive abilities, such as a Bulletproof player's kill immunity or a Mason's ability to privately talk, are not affected. More simply - if the player has to submit an action to the moderator, a Roleblocker can block it.
