As per the request of Ultiix and M4xwell, this game will be set back by roughly a month in order to give Ultiix time to recover from his injury.

In the meantime, a new 15E will go up later today (Friday, June 8th) at 10 PM EDT.

Lord of the Rings Flavor, hosted by Eragon1329 and ManateeDude.

Have fun.

It saddens me to say that Moonbird isn't the only FM Mod leaving the ranks this month. Santa07 and Swordsworth are stepping down from their positions. I wish them the best and it was a pleasure to have all three on the team.

With the new mods coming in, there's going to be a shift up in terms of queue management, along with a large change to the queues in general.

Firstly, the biggest change, is that the TFM and SFM gametypes and their queues will now be merged together as one queue, under the label as SFM. This is not a situation like there is with the Standard queues, that being two games being ran at once. The new queue will only have one game being ran at a time.

As for how the game order will go after the merge, we will essentially be putting all games in the TFM queue after the last game in the SFM queue.

As for who manages the queues:

NFM - melanora
Standards - Schultz & Varanus
SFM - Alzar
VFM - ZSSDistortion


But where's good ol sleepy boy Met?

Metrion will no longer be moderating their own queue. Instead, Metrion will serve as a sort of overseer role, along with being the head of the Balance Team.

Voice any questions, concerns, or feedback in the Discord or FM Discussion.

Due to recent issues we've encountered with alts in our Discord, we've established new rules regarding Discord invites and how to join the FM Discord.


  1. To get an invite, you must PM a FM mod on the Forums. All links will be set to expire after a short period of time and will only be a one-time use.
  2. Users will no longer be able to create invites to the server. The only people capable of doing so are GMods and current/former FM Mods.


As of now all current invites that are floating around out there have been forcibly expired and will no longer work.

The FM Game Rules thread has been updated.

I'm not going to say what was updated, so go read it yourselves.

Going to second this, but in general -

If you haven't recently read the rules, please refresh your memory. A number of rules are being broken recently, even with reminders in thread, and then people claiming they "didn't know". The rules are listed there for a reason. We work really hard to make sure that they are explicitly clear and there is no confusion. Claiming you didn't know isn't an excuse, particularly when they are repeated in the game thread as well.

Read the rules. Know the rules. They're there for a reason.

Reminder that if you have host powers, don't lock games/use your host powers that you're not hosting. Just ask an FM Mod to lock it instead.

Here we go again boys.



Episode XVI: Tone Deaf

Sign-ups go up on Sunday, July 22nd, at 3 PM EDT.

I'll be hosting this episode, hopefully it'll be a step up from the last episode.



Speaking of Episodes, we will be testing a new rolelist for our Episodes in the future. This will be tested in 16B, which will be hosted by me once 15F is completed. This rolelist will not be in Episode 16. More will be out regarding this rolelist in the future.


On a separate note, those patch notes from May don't feel so good, and thus do not exist anymore due to negative feedback.

With the next Episode, we will be testing a new mechanic in the sign-ups phase in order to help cater to the playerlist's preferred game type.

Our new mechanic is known as Rolelist Voting.

Once the sign-ups for the Episode fill up, all of the players will be asked to privately send in their vote to either have the game run a rolelist similar to that of a Standard's, or to run a rolelist similar to that of a VFM. With a 19 player rolelist, the votes will be done by majority. Players have to choose one or the other, there's no being neutral here.



Standard Episode Rolelist:

Town Investigative
Town Protective
Town Support
Town Killing
Random Town
Random Town
Random Town
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen


Godfather/Capo
Random Mafia
Random Mafia
Random Mafia


Witch
Serial Killer/Arsonist


Notes/ECO:

  • Mafia has day-chat.
  • Majority and plurality enabled.
  • Day 1 lynch enabled.
  • 72 hour Day phases, 24 hour night phases.



Vanilla Episode Rolelist:

Macho Cop
Doctor
1-shot Bulletproof
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen


1-shot Mafia Vig
1-shot Mafia Vig
Goon
Goon

(Mafia have an infinite factional Neapolitan, which checks if a player is a Citizen or not.)



Notes/ECO:


  • Mafia have daychat.
  • Majority and plurality enabled.
  • Day 1 lynch enabled.
  • 72 hour Day phases, 24 hour Night phases.
  • Macho Cop cannot be healed by a Doctor and has a N0 town peek (i.e they cannot find scum on N0).
  • The Doctor's heal will only stop a single attack.
  • Bulletproof's ability is automatic and will only stop a single attack.
  • If the Bulletproof is attacked by the Mafia twice in one night, the Bulletproof will die. If the Bulletproof is healed in this situation, however, the Bulletproof will be saved.
  • If the Bulletproof is attacked once by the Mafia while being healed by a Doctor, the Bulletproof's passive will not be used.
  • The Mafia Vigs are unable to both shoot on the same night, but are still able to shoot in addition to the factional kill.
  • Mafia members are able to use two abilities at the same time (Neapolitan, vig shot, and factional kill).



If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about this mechanic or the rolelist, feel free to tell us in PMs or the Discord. This is the first run of these rolelists and the mechanic, so issues aren't unlikely.

After listening to the feedback over the past day or so, we've made changes to the Vanilla Rolelist in the episode. The announcement prior to this one has been updated with the new rolelist.

Just as a heads up, don't put anything related to an on-going game anywhere outside of the thread or an area related to the game itself such as a mafia or neighborhood chat. This includes signatures.

Sup nerds.

Sign-ups go up on Sunday at 3 PM EDT for 16B: Change of Pace.

This game will be testing v1 of our new Episode rolelist (standard version), which is as follows:


Town Protective
Town Killing
Random Town
Random Town
Random Town
Random Town
Random Town
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen


Mafia Head
Mafia Support
Mafia Support/Tactical
Random Mafia
Random Mafia


Witch


Before I get responses about "LUL 6 TPS, EZ", understand that if a setup is rolled with a broken amount of roles in RT, in terms of power or PoE potential, we'll reroll the setup until we get a suitable one.

See you nerds there.
