What Is Mafia?
Mafia, also known as Werewolf, is a famous social deduction game that puts two teams against each other: Town and Mafia. Mafia players know who everyone in their team is, while Town players only know their own alignment. Cut into two ‘Phases’, Day and Night, the game entails Town trying to eliminate the Mafia via discussion and voting while the Mafia are trying to not get caught in order to match or outnumber the Town in order to win.

Interested in joining or learning more? Check out our MafiERA OT!

Fundamentals:
1. All site-wide rules apply here.
2. Do not use slurs or bigoted language.
3. Please do not put active players on an ignore list during a game.
4. Unless explicitly told otherwise, players may not discuss this game outside of this thread.
5. Unless explicitly told otherwise, players may not directly quote or post screenshots of any PMs, posts, conversations, or any other type of document that was not made in this thread.
6. Players are allowed to lie, within reason, about any game-related material such as the content of a role PM.
7. Please do not refer to, or discuss, player activity outside of this thread, for the sake of the game’s integrity. This includes discussing circumstances around player replacement.
8. Please respect all of your fellow community members in terms of personhood and accessibility. In this community we require that you respect person’s pronouns and be aware of accessibility when using non-default text (do not change text color unnecessarily and be mindful of small and large fonts’ impact on readability).
9. Failure to adhere to a player’s personal pronoun will result in a private warning. On the second offense that player will be removed from the game.

Game Behavior:
10. While mafia can be an intense and stressful game, with play becoming heated at times, please try to keep discussion as respectful and congenial as possible. Take a break if you feel heated. If someone is breaking a rule you are encouraged to alert your gamerunner and game watchers. Reports about in-game action and behavior will be handled by them, and the gamerunner will issue final rulings in the event of disagreements.
11. Being overly hostile towards your fellow players is not allowed. If the gamerunner and game watchers find a player has been overly aggressive, action will be taken. First a private warning via PM will be given. Failure to stop the behavior will then result in another private warning and the offender will be given a priority penalty. If these behaviors still continue then that player will be removed from the game.
12. Treat players, gamerunners, and game watchers with respect. Players who are bothered by behavior they perceive as uncomfortable or as targeted aggression should make their positions clear in game as everyone has a different threshold. If a player feels someone has crossed a line they should contact the gamerunner and game watchers, listed in the first post, about the issue.
13. Players should not perform moderator actions in game, including using highlight text outside of voting, or issuing day-end/start commands, or calling for the modkill or replacement of another player. While we understand mafia can be an intense experience, and players may wish to discuss in-game moderation decisions with the gamerunner, once a gamerunner makes a decision, please respect it as final.

Activity:
14. Players are required to post a minimum of 10 posts per day phase. Failure to adhere to this will result in a private warning. On the second offense that player will be removed from the game.
15. If a player posts fewer than 5 posts in a day phase without alerting the gamerunner to their absence, they will be removed from the game without a warning.
16. If you are unable to continue playing for whatever reason, please contact your gamerunner.
17. If a replacement is added to the game, they may request the current/upcoming night phase to be extended up-to 48 hours to allow time to catch up.
18. Please do not theorize or discuss the reasons behind a player’s replacement during a game.

Voting and Lynching:
19. In order to vote for another player to be lynched, you must present it on its own line and in the following format with no spaces: [ HIGHLIGHT ]VOTE: playername[ /HIGHLIGHT ]. Any other format will not be accepted.
20. To remove a vote from a player, you may simply vote for another player, or you may present it on its own line and in the following format with no spaces: [ HIGHLIGHT ]UNVOTE[ /HIGHLIGHT ].
21. Players may vote for a “No Lynch” to end the day phase without a lynch. This is done by using the formatting above and typing: [ HIGHLIGHT ]VOTE: No Lynch[ /HIGHLIGHT ].
22. When a player has received a strict majority of available votes (>50%), the day phase ends with the lynch of that player. Once a day phase has ended any in-game discussion stops and votes cast after that will not be counted.

Death and the Spectator Thread:
23. Once you are dead, you may no longer discuss the game in any manner with any of the remaining players.
24. Once dead, players may have a choice between the spectator thread and the replacement list. PM your gamerunner for more information.

Other:
25. Do not edit your posts or hide content in the formatting. Repeat offenders will be removed from the game.
26. If a player is banned or they are replaced due to inactivity they will have the lowest possible priority when signing up for a spot in their next game.
27. Gamerunners reserve the right to add, remove, or modify existing any rules at any point, and enforcement may be applied retrospectively. However, all players will be informed of changes beforehand.

Game Specific Rules/Notes:
1. This is a costume game. Do not try and metagame who is playing as what costume. Do not openly claim who you are underneath the costume.
2. All flavor/costumes were randomized to the roles. Flavor is flavor is flavor.
3. I'm terrible with avatars, so you got what you got for now. If you want to change it that might be okay, but run it by me first via PM.

Day Start/End Links:

I'm just going to throw this out now - CHECK PRONOUNS CHECK PRONOUNS CHECK PRONOUNS. This is a costume game so it's going to be that much more important to pay attention to them. You won't be able to rely on historical memory here. Don't make me murder you all.

In an effort to try and not have pronoun issues I have applied the pronouns as titles for the costumes. If for any reason what I have listed is wrong or you want it updated to something else just PM me and I’ll get it taken care of.

Are we still waiting on confirmations? I'd be down to start early
Yep, still a few to go. If I get all confirmations and no one dissents I’ll start it up a day early so we can get this show a rollin.

Just keep in mind everyone you are obviously allowed to form theories on who is helming each account, but openly speculating is not allowed. This isn’t Scooby Doo, we’re not here to see who’s behind the mask.

If someone wants a nickname for their account just PM me. You have time since I don’t seem to understand how to make the vote tool URL for OM so you’re all stuck without it for a bit anyways lol
 

Bob Ross

He/Him

Why change your screen Targaryen, the whole point is to have costumes and not the actual character...
 

Clown

He/Him
Costume
Should Cereal Killer have been a Serial Killer in the pre-shuffle universe, we all have equally good chances of being the new mastermind of murder.

Serial Clown? Clown Killer? Cerial Ciller.
 

Rey

He/Him
Costume
Is this is gonna lead anything anywhere

no but pls continue to shitpost really it's entertaining
 

Cereal Killer

She/Her
Costume
It depends. Is Cereal Killer a person who kills a lot of cereal, or a cereal that does lots of killing?

Because I feel like I can relate to one of those just fine
Definitely about that killing cereal life but not about piling onto a joke vote to look like you're involved with something

vote: Dracula
 

Jack Sparrow

He/Him
Costume
While Dracula pilling onto a joke is sus he seems pretty trolly so it's not enough for me to take it to seriously right now.
