Mafia Rules

Note: All rules that are highlighted in blue are able to be changed as the game host sees fit.

Rule 1: Do not take the game personally.
Like a Star @ heaven People might get aggressive, unreasonable, controlling, bossy – all of these are tactics in order to make you vote a certain way or believe what they want you to believe. Nothing is personal, don’t take it personally.
Like a Star @ heaven If you feel you have been personally attacked, please contact the Mafia Moderator Sailor Mars. He will look over the case and help you with your issue.

Rule 2: Be active – post at least twice per day phase.
Like a Star @ heaven If inactivity is suspected, you will be kicked from the game and another member will take your place. You will not receive any points for participation.
Like a Star @ heaven You should be able to dedicate at least 20-40 minutes to the game per day. If you are unable to do this, you shouldn't be playing, or you should expect to be called out on your inactivity and have it used against you. Especially if, when you post, you don't contribute to the game.

Rule 3: This is not a roleplay. Do not roleplay. Character names are given for fun.

Posting Rules:
Like a Star @ heaven Do not screenshot any private messages sent by the moderator, whether it be via the forums, Skype, text, or any other instant messaging forum.
Like a Star @ heaven Don’t edit or delete your posts.

Gameplay Rules:
Like a Star @ heaven Bold and Red your lynch nomination vote.
Like a Star @ heaven Bold and Green your nvm-don’t-lynch vote.
Like a Star @ heaven Bold and Blue your questions to the Host or the Moderator.
Like a Star @ heaven Don’t discuss this game outside of boards designated for this game.
Like a Star @ heaven Always play toward your win condition. Even if you think the game is lost, people can still make mistakes, which enables you to win the game.
Like a Star @ heaven Claim whatever you want; just be willing to back your claim up without breaking one of these rules.
Like a Star @ heaven You get one final post after you die. You are not allowed to reveal any information you may have gained from your role. Your role will be revealed when you die.
Like a Star @ heaven Day Phase - Lynching
    - Days last for 48 hours.
    - Everyone votes on whom to lynch (suspected of being a mafia member)
    - Lynches are made when a player receives greater than 50% of the vote.
    - Days without lynching may occur, depending on moderator’s wishes.
Like a Star @ heaven Night Phase - Roles
    - Nights last 24 hours regardless of how soon players finish their roles.
    - Mafia votes on whom to kill – they do this in a secret board.
    - Cops choose whom to investigate (they send a name to the moderator; moderator returns
      with that person’s role).
    - Doctors choose whom to protect (the mafia cannot kill the protected person).
    - There can be other roles; other roles, or specifications on the above roles, will be posted
      below these rules. For more information, visit this site.
    - Players are NOT allowed to pressure other members to turn in roles each night. There is a
      set time, and it is up to the Moderator when to end each night.
Like a Star @ heaven Winning
    - Mafia wins if their numbers are equal to or less than townies.
    - Townies win when all mafia members are dead.

Like a Star @ heaven Breaking any of the above rules will result in expulsion from the game and disciplinary action.


Warning:
Mafia can be considered a game with a high potential for intensity, as it involves accusations (sometimes wild and unfounded), strong words, and even, at times, aggression towards other characters. This is an official note of caution that this game is for people with really thick skins that fully understand that what happens in game stays in game and anything that occurs in that game thread is not a reflection of the player or of the forum, just the nature of the game itself: in other words, there is a giant "No personal offense meant" tag across everything mafia-related. However, the forum Code of Conduct is expected to be followed by all players.

If for any reason you believe this game might not be the game for you, sit out and watch a few games before deciding to sign up.


Disclaimer: If you have a hard time focusing, high anxiety or some sort of disorder that you know might be triggered by the game, then this game might not be for you. Please exercise caution when signing up.

Consequences of Breaking Mafia Conduct
If any player starts acting out of line (even within the normal scope of reactions to the game) it is understood that the game could be locked for a short period of time, wherein the players involved can cool off and apologize, or decide it's too intense and back away from the game. By signing up you agree to these terms and conditions, knowing that if further actions need be taken you could be banned from playing Mafia in the future.


Thank you Sailor Uranus    for the original Mafia rules!

Hello Mafia Section!

The rules of the Mafia Parlour had some minor changes I'm going to explain to you here:

Quote :
Bold and Blue your questions to the Host or the Moderator.

People have told me, that this rule had existed before and that they would love to have it back. Since it is a good and easy way for the Moderator and the Host to see questions, I've brought it back. So if you have a question about a game mechanic or something else, you want everyone to see, just make them bold and blue!


Quote :
Always play toward your win condition. Even if you think the game is lost, people can still make mistakes, which enable you to win the game.

Since we had people playing against their win condition in the past, this is an important new rule to prevent drama from happening.
For example: If Mafia A and Mafia B are the only ones left, and Mafia A makes a mistake and is lynched because of it; Mafia B is not allowed to start playing against his win condition because he doesn't see a way to win, or he doesn't want Mafia A to win after doing such a mistake.


Quote :
If you feel you have been personally attacked, please contact the Mafia Moderator Sailor Mars. He will look over the case and help you with your issue.

This is the most important rule change I have today. It is really important for people to differentiate between things that happen in a Mafia Game, and things that happen outside of it. People may question your playstyle and/or your ability to play in attempt to either get your attention, or cause an argument. Such things are not meant to be taken personally. If you sign up to a Mafia Game, you can expect such things to happen and if you are easily offended, Mafia might not be the game for you. If you feel like somebody is going overboard with the things they say and you feel personally attacked, you can consult the Mafia Moderator. He will look over everything and help you the best he can.

Do we have to R&U before we participate in the next game? If so, R&U!

Actually I forgot to lock the Topic again. But a R&U on the rules here before signing up for a game would be a good idea. This way people don't have to R&U the rules for every Mafia Game.
