Postby RhazhBash » Wed Nov 23, 2016 9:41 am

Newcomer Forum Mafia


Please read the rules below fully.

General Rules:

  1. Be respectful. Should be self-explanatory. No tolerance against racial/homophobic/sexist remarks. If you feel this rule isn't being followed, PM me.
  2. Do not discuss the game outside of the thread unless otherwise stated.
  3. Do not quote any messages from / conversations with the moderator.
  4. Do not gamethrow. Always work towards your faction's goals.
  5. If you are inactive for more than 36 hours, you will receive a prod, and have 18 hours to reply. If you do not reply within 18 hours, you will be removed. However if your posts are found to not actually try to include content to futher the game, they will not count towards resetting the prod timer. Said content is evaluated under the moderator's discretion. You will be told if your post is valid or not.
  6. Quoting and then editing another player's post for the purpose of misleading is prohibited. Editing to simply cut down the post content to what is relevant is allowed.
  7. Be sure to look at ObiWan's Rules for more info, some of the rolecards that will be used and the ECO if you don't know how a situation is handled. The FM Academy can also be a good read.
  8. Lastly, If you have any questions, feel free to ask the moderator. We'll be glad to answer any doubts you may have.

Vigilante Rolecard change
Spoiler: Vigilante

You are a Vigilante.

Your alignment is Town Killing.

You believe that the law of this town is useless against the evil-doers in your town and have decided to take matters into your own hands.

Each night you may decide to shoot and kill one town member you believe to be evil.
However, if the person you shoot turns out to be Town, you will be overcome with grief and vow never to shoot again.
You only have 2 bullets, allowing you to perform your night action up to 2 times. Make them count.
You may shoot on the first night.

You win with the Town
You must kill the Mafia
You must kill Arsonists
You may spare anyone else


Veteran Rolecard Change

Spoiler: Veteran

You are a Veteran.

Your alignment is Town Killing.

You're a war-hardened soldier who is living out his retirement in the small and calm town of Salem.
But your retirement is short-lived, as people begin dying when the Mafia comes to town.
Luckily you still have your gun with you and you can use it to go on alert, killing anyone who comes to your house that night.

Going on alert makes you kill anybody who comes to your house that night, both evil and good, so use this power carefully or you will do more harm than good.
This can also kill people who are normally night immune, like the Godfather, Serial Killer, and Arsonist.
You are immune to attacks, douses, stalking, and any other harmful night actions while on alert.
You can go on alert only 2 times throughout the game.
You are immune to being roleblocked.

You win with the Town
You must kill the Mafia
You must kill Arsonists
You may spare anyone else

Re: [Newcomer FM] NFM 34 | Setup

Postby RhazhBash » Wed Nov 23, 2016 9:49 am

Introduction and mechanics.

First of all, welcome to NFM. Some of you have already played before, while others are brand new, so I'll try to keep this simple.
Forum Mafia, or FM in short, is a game about deception between the two main factions: The uninformed majority (town) and the informed minority (mafia), with, most of the time, a third-party (neutrals) trying to fulfill their own goals along the way. Logic, mind games, etc. are all part and usual of mafia.

Town and Mafia both have pretty straight-foward win conditions: eliminate the opposite team, and all neutrals with a night killing ability (Neutral Killings). While the mafia has the opportunity to kill periodically, the town cannot rely on their own killing roles to win the game - for that, they must vote to kill a player by "lynch".

The game is divided in two phases: the Day, and the Night.

  • The former is when the players post on the game thread, discussing about what happened during the night, other players and who should be voted for the lynch. The days last 120 hours (5 real-life days) and lynches are allowed, these which will occur after the majority has been reached. To vote, just post "/vote PlayerNameExample". When a player reaches majority, they are automatically lynched, there is no trial phase. When a player is lynched, they are immediately removed from the game, with their role and last will (if they have one) being shown to public.
  • The latter is a 48-hour period where any player who has a night action may use it (unless jailed). **During this phase the Mafia privately talks on their mafia chat. After the 48 hours are over, all actions are carried out, and the personal results of this phase shall be privately messaged (PM'd) to each player.

**There are no whispers present in this game.
**There are no last wills or death notes in this game.
**Transporter and Town Powers may not roll in this set-up


The game will only end once one of the major factions (or a NK) fulfills their condition.

PM Protocols
When sending me the information below, make sure one of the following is in the subject line:
"NFM Night Action" for Night Actions.

Mafia Killing Revamp is in play: Meaning - Any member of the Mafia may sacrifice their night action to make the factional kill at night.

------

Terminology.

General terms:

Role Card: The PM which contains the player's role, alignment and abilities.
Game Throwing: Playing against your win condition with the intent of making your own faction lose.
Hard Claim: Directly stating one's own role on the game thread.
Soft Claim: Hinting one's role without explicity stating it.
Counter Claim (CC): Making a claim which directly contradicts someone else's. E.g Player A hardclaims Citizen, but Player B is a Lookout who saw them visiting, so they hardclaim and bring up their evidence.
Fake Claim: Claiming a role which is not their own's. E.g When a mafia member is demanded to hardclaim, they almost always fakeclaim instead.
Scum/Scummy: Scum is the name given to any role which doesn't win with town, and needs to be eliminated for town's win condition. Being scummy means adopting a behaviour which doesn't line up with the behaviour expected from a town member.
Confirmed: Being 100% confirmed as a certain [role]/[alignment].
No Lynch: Instead of voting for a player, you may also "/vote No Lynch". If majority reaches on a No Lynch, no player is killed. A No Lynch will also occur when the amount of time for the Day phase is over and majority hasn't been reached. No Lynching is, the majority of the time, benefitial to scum, so aiming towards it is generally scummy.
Reads/Reading: The read you have on a player is the conclusion about their alignment and/or role through their posts or other factors.
WIFOM: WIFOM is the circular reasoning that results from trying to determine the choices of an opponent who acted with full knowledge that their behavior would be subject to scrutiny.
Mislynch: An incorrect lynch on a town member.
Tunneling: Solely focusing on a player and their posts, ignoring others. Often considered scummy.
Last Will: A personal "diary", per see, in which the player may choose to write whatever they consider relevant. Automatically revealed upon death.

Slightly more uncommon terms:

FoS - Finger of Suspicion. Putting the Finger of Suspicion onto a player means that one is calling that player scummy and saying that other players should keep an eye on that player. [Alt. Hand of Suspicion (HoS)]
LyLo - Lynch or Lose. A stage in the game where town must lynch scum or they lose. See also: MyLo.
MyLo - Mislynch and Lose. A stage in the game where if town mislynches (lynches town) and the Mafia make a kill town loses.
PoE - Process of Elimination.
OMGUS - "oh my god you suck". An acronym used to describe retaliatory actions such as votes. Ex: voting a player because they voted you citing the reason "because they are stupid".
PbPA - Post by Post Analysis. Analyzing a player's posts in succession, typically associated with ISO.
ISO - Isolation. Looking at a player's total posts in a game, in succession.
IC - Inexperienced Challenged. A term used to describe the experienced players who sign up for NFMs as representatives.

For a more complete list, feel free to look here.

------

Playing as Town

While Mafia can talk strategy during the night, the town needs to use the day phase to discuss and figure out who is and isn't town as well. What can you do, then?
Try to progress discussion in a fashion which will be benefitial to the town, try to look for posts that feel scummy, ask and answer questions other players have made, try to see which intentions a player has behind their posts, be active and post reads regularly. Avoid plays which could benefit scum instead (e.g Hardclaiming for no reason, fakeclaiming), and try your best to think for yourself - it's a common mistake to follow blindly whatever other players have to say.

And be sure to read ObiWan's guide about playing as Citizen.

Playing as Mafia

As scum, you should play exactly like you would as town - be active, post reads, try to look productive, etc. The difference here are your goals: Hiding information, misleading the town and stalling out long enough until they no longer outnumber you. This means appearing as scum-hunting, but in actuality pushing for a mislynch by questioning, false reading and trying to depict a player as scum. However, keep in mind that if a teammate is acting undeniably scummy and their lynch looks like the right call, try not to oppose it too obviously - or it could be tracked back to you.
And remember: you are a team, and thus communication is essential. Try to talk over every situation so you can plan in advance.

Playing as Neutral

Witch is the only neutral available to roll. Their goal and play style is a mix between that of the Town and Mafia. They want to be actively hunting scum and trying to figure out who they win with and who they don't, applying one of the best night actions in the game accordingly; either to get into contact or to severely hinder. However they do not want to be getting scum lynched themselves, so they also have to play similar to the Mafia in the regard that they do want the town to be successful. Above all they need to look out for number 1; themselves.


Golden Rules:
Don't claim Neutral.
Don't be inactive.
Remember what your goals are at all times.
Don't panic if you commit a mistake, but try to work your way around it.
Have fun. It's a game, after all.

------

For anything else, feel free to ask me in a PM, or in the thread, or take a look at the FM Main Hub.

Note: Thank you to ObiWan for this guide.

Hey guys, welcome to NFM!

I'm Melanora, or Mumanora, and I'll be your Helicopter Parent.

Not really, but also really.

I'm a Moderator for Forum Mafia, and I oversee all NFM games.

If you have any questions, if you have any concerns, just ask. If you want clarification on your role, if you are confused about what's going on, just ask. You can message me at any point in time, or you can post in this game your question. Nothing is really off limits, as this is a place for you to learn. My posts will always be non-biased, so don't ask me who you should vote for or who I think is scum. I may also ask you to clarify your question so that my answer can be more generalized if it's necessary.

I will also be posting on occasion things about what is occuring in each phase, and how to continue. This will include RVS, Lynching, L-1, Day Start, LYLO/MYLO, and a few others.

To ask me anything, simply post
@Melanora, and then your question.

Enjoy the game!

Since today is going to be busy for most of us I'll be extending confirmations until Friday when I get back to my dorm. You have until whenever that happens (Approximately 12-1 PM EST) to confirm.

Several people did not confirm and will be replaced. The new players have 24 hours from now to confirm. Moonbird will be joining as a non newbie due to lack of available newbies.

14 people awoke to an unfamiliar room. None of them knew how they got there.
They saw a door at the end and opened it. On the other side of the door were multiple paths, and everyone stuck together to find a way out.
After multiple turns and dead ends, they realized they were in a labyrinth. They got tired after wandering for hours, and found an area where they could all sit down.

Soon after everyone realized something. They had no food. The people with evil grins on their face looked at people who were scared and struck even more fear into them. It was inevitable. It had to happen.

Day 1 begins

Day 1 will end on December 1 at 1 PM EST or when majority is reached.

Reminders:
There is a D1 lynch
Mafia has daychat
There are no whispers, wills, or death notes
Me and Mel can answer any questions you have

I wasn't thinking when I voted him/her. I just choose someone random from the list. I should have paid attention to posts. I'm now assuming Olly is claiming a PR role of some sort due to his post.
