|Forum Mafia is based on the party game Mafia (if you know how it's played) albeit with a few new roles. Nobody knows who the other person is. The objective of the mafia is to kill all the townsfolk while the townsfolk try to find out and kill the mafia amongst them. Neutral roles have their own victory conditions.
There are day and night sequences. Day will take TWO OR THREE FULL DAYS IN REAL TIME or until there has been a successful lynching. Night will take TWO OR THREE FULL DAYS during which the mafia can discuss in their own private discussion forum and the friends in their own private discussion forum.
The town's roles with special abilities (besides friends) must PM me if they want to use their special ability. The PM MUST be titled "Mafia + ________" depending on what you want to do (If you are a cop, title the message "Mafia Kill (username)", for civilian, title "Mafia Barricade", for detective title "Mafia Detect (username)", for investigator title "Mafia Investigate (username)", etc)
All mafia roles must confirm their actions on the Mafia Group Chat forum (which is hidden to everyone besides the mafia).
In the beginning of the game, I (the narrator) will assign each of you a random role. This is usually, in a 15 player match, 3 mafia roles, 2 neutral roles, and 10 town roles (which includes 3 friends). Lynching will occur with a poll on the top of each day. You can choose to not lynch and skip the day by selecting the "Skip" option. If skip accumulates the majority vote, the day will be skipped and will proceed into night.
If you are lynched or killed by the mafia, I will remove your name and you will be removed from the game until the end of the match. I will then reinvite you so that you may see what went on during the game.
Players who achieve the victory condition of their role will recieve 20 points upon victory. Participating players who lost will recieve 10 points upon loss. Any player who survives until the end earns an additional 5 survival bonus points.
Not all Mafia games will be the same; I will not use all the roles at once in each game, and there will also be plenty of special roles that may appear in some games.
Discussion of an active Forum Mafia game is LIMITED STRICTLY TO THE FOLLOWING FORUMS:
Forum Mafia Game
Mafia Group Chat
Friends Group Chat
Any discussion of a current match outside of these forums will result in the player being booted from the match. Beware .
The normal rules of the forum do not apply here. This is meant to be like an online discussion. Spam does not matter. A post with only a "hi" is OK as well. The only thing you guys should be wary of is that there is a flood limit of THREE posts in a row before I have to delete some of them. Yes, I understand this will boost your forum post count.
To vote, make sure to type in (ON A SEPARATE LINE)
I.E. This is NOT allowed:
"Bla bla bla I think this guy's mafia -vote thisguy bla bla bla."
THIS is allowed:
"Bla bla bla I think this guy's mafia
bla bla bla
Posting should be about discussion of events. Usually the first day is merely a talking/getting to know eachother day as there are no leads as to who the mafia might be.
SPECIAL POSTING RULES FOR MAFIA GROUP CHAT AND FORUM MAFIA GAME
