    Something completely different: forum mafia

    THE RULES

    1) You do not talk about your role or any other relevant information concerning the game outside this thread.

    2) If you post at night you will be modkilled.

    3) If you edit your post you will be modkilled (this includes editing for spelling mistakes).

    4) If your role allows you to communicate with others during the night, feel free to do so via PM, instant messaging or any other form you choose. Only those roles expressly allowed to communicate privately with each other at night are allowed to. If you have any questions, contact me privately.

    5) Once you're dead, stay that way. Dead people tell no tales, or in this case, dead people make no posts. Suck up your death and keep watching and rooting for your team. There's always the next round.

    6) Every player gets one lynch vote during the day. Votes and unvotes need to be bolded, or they don't count. Unvotes are not required before changing a vote, but they are preferable. The votes and unvotes must be as follows:

    Vote: ThunderCat
    Unvote: ThunderCat


    WRONG!!!
    Vote: TC
    Vote: ChunderTat
    Vote Thundercat
    Unvote i_like_pie
    WRONG!!!

    Anything else won't be tallied towards the lynch. If you try to cheat with ; or whatever else, feel free to, just hope the others won't catch you doing so. Also, names MUST BE CASE SENSITIVE.

    7) The required number of votes to seal a lynch for the day is equal to one half the remaining number of people alive (rounded up) plus 1. Once someone reaches this number of votes, the lynch will be locked and cannot be changed, however the day will still continue to its scheduled conclusion. Half rounded up equals a lynch, but no lock, so the lynchee has until the days end to persuade the town otherwise.

    8) Never post anything in the thread that shouldn't be known to the town. Don't flame in the thread. If you have a problem with anything in the thread, please PM me and I'll do my best to handle it.

    9) Any player may claim any role, including something they are not. However,

    10) Do not post any information sent to you in a PM. If you want to claim a role, don't copy paste the PM I sent you. Comparing details of role PMs to confirm role claims is not allowed. There is one exception however, in this game every role PM contains a YouTube video, and posting them is permitted.

    11) I won't be telling you the starting roles.

    12) Day lasts 48 hours and night lasts 24 hours.

    13) Do not post at night or edit or you will be modkilled.

    14) You will get modkilled if you are inactive (at least 1 contributive post a day). Exceptions can be made, if the player informs me in advance of being absent from the game.

    15) Read the rules once more. Have Fun! Good luck! May the best team win.

    It was another pleasant day at the loony bin known as the BBC. The shooting of the next show was about to start, and the cast and crew were on location at the local zoo.

    In the cage, the newsreader cleared his throat. "And now for something completely different", he said in perfect Cambridge English, as the camera panned past him and stopped at the next cage. When he could not hear anything, the newsreader whispered from the corner of his mouth. "It's your line."

    But when he continued to hear nothing, he turned to look, and immediately discerned the reason why. "Director", he said, "why is the tiger gnawing on the bones? We did agree that the animals were to be temporarily removed, did we not?"

    The director shrugged. "Don't ask me, you're the ones with all the funny ideas."

    "The bones are supposed to be there for the ending sequence, not the intro. And the tiger is not supposed to be there at all", the newsreader continued patiently. "Come to think of it, why would the tiger be interested in plastic bones?"

    Suddenly someone screamed as the realization dawned that the bones were not plastic at all. Another mysterious accident had claimed the life of another comedy icon. But this time they had gone too far. The presence of a tiger in the cage could only be intentional murder, it could no longer be explained away otherwise. Particularly as the original animals in the cage had been baboons.

    The It's Man is dead.

    It is now DAYTIME. You may post freely for 48 hours.

    Flavor for the story since we started with a day phase?

    Flavor indeed. Maybe even a sample of how the the NKs will be shown in the start of the day story. Not a big fan of this kind of cheese tough. I prefer things to start with a night phase.

    PS: My first game is in the similar threads section ;)

    Re: Something completely different: forum mafia

    Another poem?

    "It's Man" appears to be a Monty Python character, but since the game started with a day phase, I don't think any of the players were given the now deceased "It's Man" role. In addition, Monty Python may be full of weird things, but not knowing which player actually died would be too weird.

    Re: Something completely different: forum mafia

    Lol great intro.

    I'm going to be all over this game in terms of grasping the nuances as I'm a huge python fan.

    The "Its man" was played from the very first episode by Michael Palin. Apparently Feysal killed him!

    He would start every show with some incredibly drawn out sequence of physical action going through hell just to get to the camera and say "...its" in a totally defeated voice and then John Cleese would say "Monty Python's Flying Circus" in a very calm rational voice. It was very silly.

    Re: Something completely different: forum mafia

    I concur with the thought that this was just flavor, since there was seemingly no night phase (unless players with actions were given advance notice to send them in) and this game is certainly going to be something completely different. It should go without saying, but since I'm sure someone will suggest it, let's not post our youtube links unless necessary. This game will be confusing enough without hilarious yet confusing skits muddying the waters further (although I will want to see all of the videos at the end).

    Proceed with the discussion, I'll be watching.

    I hope the daily summaries use the best skits as part of the write up.

    This should be pretty funny.

    And stop being a streaker Gorny.

    Re: Something completely different: forum mafia

    Damnit I didn't make it into page 1. I wanted this to be on the first page. :(

    I'm just going to roleclaim straight off the bat, since if you're going to want to waste a lynch on me it's better that you do it now than later.

    I'm a treestump, I cannot be lynched or killed in any other way. I also have another power which I'm not going to reveal yet, but it's something that'll give me information as the game progresses.

    Now, it's time you start with the "GOD NO WHY DID YOU CLAIM THAT ALREADY, YOU COULD'VE SAVED A POWER ROLE!? YOU COULD BE AN UNLYNCHABLE MAFIA FOR ALL WE KNOW!" etc. and get it on with today.

    Oh, I cannot vote. Here is the proof:

    Vote: Gorny

    Actually, Ankeli, you are still @ page 1 on me. Try turning your maximum posts per page up ^_^.



    Let's confirm you then.

    Re: Something completely different: forum mafia

    Is it okay to ask that are the roles related to the TV-series / the remaster-movie or do we also have any characters from Life of Brian or Holy Grail?

    Re: Something completely different: forum mafia

    Go ahead and vote for me if you deem that the best course of action. However, that's still one lynch attempt that could be used to flush out some mafia. Then again I don't blame you for wanting to test me out, I could be a voteless mafia as well I guess.

    As you can see on page 1, my vote doesn't count.

    Re: Something completely different: forum mafia

    Dropping by to say I probably won't be on much at all the next couple days due to a huge deadline on Wednesday. I will point out that while Ankeli's claim has some solid evidence in that his vote hasn't counted, there usually is a key phrase to be uttered to announce treestump.
