HOW TO PLAY


• What is Mafia?


Mafia is a forum based game that has evolved from the party game known by the same name. In Mafia, people must sign up for a game by choosing an available number during sign ups. The number they pick will determine their role.

Once the game has started it goes into Day One. During the Day Phases, people may post in the thread about the game to decide who they should lynch. Be careful of what you say, as everyone playing, including enemies, can read what you say.

Once someone has been lynched, the player 'dies' and is removed from the game. From there the game moves into Night Phase.
NO ONE may post in the thread during night phase.
Night actions must be sent in a PM to the GM as soon as possible.
Once all Night Actions have been received (or once the deadline for handing in Night Actions has been reached) the GM will write all the Night Actions into a passage called a 'Night Story'. The Night Story explains the night's events in a cryptic, entertaining way. The Night Story will then be posted and all surviving players may resume posting and must find someone to lynch for that Day Phasen (or choose to no lynch)

• Lynching


Lynching is an essential part of Mafia. During the day, everyone may discuss who they want to lynch. When someone has been lynched they are removed from the game. For someone to be lynched there must be a majority vote against them. For instance if there are 10 players in game, then 6 people must all vote for the same person for that person to be lynched. All lynch votes must be posted in bold so that the GM can spot it easily.

• What does it take to play this game?


The most important things you need to play the game is basic knowledge of how the game is played and knowledge of the rules! You should always read the rules stated in the first post of a Mafia Game as the moderator may or may not have altered them to their liking.
There are also various tactics when it comes to playing. Some you may learn as you go along. Others you will have to discover by yourself.

• Sign Ups


Before a Mafia Game starts, there are the Sign-Ups. You'll have to get in quick to pick your number. Your number will determine your role. Roles will always be different in different games. Once the sign-ups are full and you've received your role PM, the main thread should be posted and you'll be able to begin playing.

• People are trying to lynch me, what can I do?

To throw off a lynch, you must defend yourself. If you are in the mafia, it may not be a good idea to get your fellow mafia friends to defend you as it would most likely put more suspicion on the both of you. There are many things you can do to defend yourself from being lynched. These can include suggesting a better person to lynch for whatever reason, using an ability given to you by the mod that allows you to avoid it (if you have one!) or roleclaiming.

• What's roleclaiming?


Roleclaiming is a tactic that involves disclosing your identity. It is against the rules to fully quote your role PM, however the GM may allow you to paraphrase it to support your claim. Your claims do not necessarily have to be the truth. If you are lying it is called a 'fakeclaim'. Fakeclaims are often used by scum to prove their innocence. Using a fakeclaim is dangerous as someone else might have that role and counter your claim. Normal roleclaiming is also dangerous for townies as it allows scum to know who you are and if you're worth killing.

• I died just when I found out some important information! Can I tell someone?


Absolutely not! Not unless someone's Role PM allows them to talk to the dead! If you are dead you may not talk to anybody that is living about the game. If you are caught doing so, the person you were talking to will be modkilled and you will earn yourself a bad name in moderator's books.

• Can I talk to anyone about the game?


If someone has been or is still in the game you may not discuss it with them unless your Role PM says otherwise. Roles that can normally contact people include Mafia, Masons and a Cult. If you are caught talking to someone when you're not supposed to, both players will be modkilled.

SUMMARY:

-No posting during night phase.
-Night actions must be sent a.s.a.p
-Day phase ends when a lynch vote is reached, or when the time limit is reached.
-NO EDITING YOUR POSTS. If you need to add something, post again.
-Lynch votes must be in bold
-Do not fully quote your role pm.
-The game mods word is final.

I CAN NEVER FIND THE LINK TO THAT DAMN FLASH & it's been 4-5 years since jaidan chewed out joseph about it so I'm just gonna copypaste links here

THE FORUM WILL LIVE AGAINNNN

  • "BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO THE GAME OF MAFIA" (this is a link) - how to play; stuff most of us (forum gen 3 - mahjong party Razz) should already know, but maybe some parts will come in handy (esp. the 'roles -> common roles' section, for slightly more complex powers we haven't used irl)

  • "VARIOUS MAFIA ROLES" (also a link) - almost every role in accepted use by online mafia communities, plus some basic game types Smile I don't expect we'll use most of these but if someone namedrops a role you haven't heard of, this may be helpful

  • MAFIASCUM WIKI - any other role info, game theory etc.! if people feel like reading up way too much on it.. like I did at age 17.. -.-


(EDIT) SOZ THESE LINKS ONLY WORK IF YOU'RE LOGGED IN WHICH MAKES NO SENSE? THANKS, OBAMA
