Finally, I have the chance to host a game myself, and we’ll return to what made mafia games a challenge here on SRK. I expect to see nothing but solid game play and mind games with this one folks.
Because I don’t feel like typing a ton right now, I’ll steal a good bit from the last game we played.
Overall game idea (if you’re new to Mafia games):
30 people get thrown into a situation where you don’t know who to trust. Each day the civilians get together and decide to kill someone, to try and find the mafia. After a vote, the person with the most votes is killed by the civilians. At night, everyone goes back to their beds to sleep, and the mafia get their turn to kill people. If the mafia have the same amount of people as the civilians, they win the game. If the civilians kills all the mafia, they win. You win or lose as a team, not individually, so do your best to help your team out!
30 Person sign up
Basic roles you should know about:
I bet you’re thinking, “That’s it? Those are all of the roles?” This game will be much different than those that have gone on lately. I believe I’ve restored balance to the game. All of the roles within the game will not be made known at the beginning as they have in the past. You will have to rely on the write ups and what goes on in game to determine what is available to your faction to win the game. Don’t worry, it won’t be entirely too difficult, but it will require teamwork and strong game play on all sides to win. Also, we’re returning to an older format in hopes of adding stronger play during day phases; during night phases there will be NO DISCUSSION at all taking place.
Once we have 30 people I will PM role cards and we’ll start shortly after Pimp Willy’s Hunger Game is over.

Notes On Game Size:
We should be able to scale down the game if we cannot get 30, and scale it up if we have a huge interest. But I’d like to aim for 30 people.
First dibs go to people who have played before, as well as people who registered pre 2013 (just to avoid new people who won’t necessarily follow the game). We’ve had a big problem with inactivity in the past, and I’d like to make sure people are interested. So if you are a 2013er/2014er, that doesn’t mean you’re automatically out, it will come down to my discretion, so still sign up!
COMMON SENSE RULES THAT I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO POINT OUT, BUT NOW HAVE TO:
Do not edit ANY POSTS. Period. For any reason. Do not ask us to verify with mods that you did not have any malicious intent in editing your posts, we will not do it. Do not provide me with any photographic evidence of your edits. There are going to be no warnings this time, just DQ’s. Habitual editors will be banned. We have had this BS happen way too much during these last two games. If you have anything to add, or any clarifications to typos to make, or a broken image/link in your post, create a new post to address it.
Do not PM anyone playing the game. If you are mafia, keep your PMs in the mafia conversation. If you’re one of the lovers, keep your PMs inside the Lovers conversation. You should not be PMing anyone else if you are them, and if you aren’t, you have no business using the PM inbox at all regarding this game. If you have any questions regarding gameplay, PM me. If someone PMs you that shouldn’t be, do not mention it in the thread, just PM me with the the contents of it. PM’ing once will result in a DQ. Habitually doing so will result in a ban. (Things not game related will not result in any penalty, but to keep the integrity of the game, if someone playing PMs you, please report it to me.)
No coaching after you’re dead. This includes outside of SRK. I don’t care what format you’re thinking of using, be it Battle.net, AIM, MSN, Skype, Smoke Signals, Texts, Morse Code. Don’t do it. Also, because this has happened recently, I will not verify any of your hunches after you die. Keep it to yourself, take it to the Loser’s Lounge, if someone shares information they know, don’t bring it to anyone else’s attention that’s still in the game. If someone does this, PM me with the proof, and that person will face a ban.
No discussing or plotting to break or bend the rules in your PMs, lovers and mafia. I’ll be in those conversations anyway, so that should go without saying. But just in case you think you can do it while I’m sleeping, think again. If you start discussing something that I don’t immediately catch, and that action is taken, once I find out, the perpetrator of the act and the instigator will both receive bans and DQs.
If you are lovers or mafia, you will not be allowed into the Loser’s Lounge until you leave the PM conversation after you die. It’s not entirely clear on how you do this by looking at it, but upon your death, simply click “Delete Conversation” on the left-hand side of the screen. This will only delete it on your end, and no one else’s.
6 Do not try to get removed from the game after it already starts, or try to break the rules to get DQ’d. If something super unexpected happens, I’ll try to be reasonable, but overall, if you know you’re going to be busy, and unable to play at all, don’t sign up. If you suddenly see a full schedule hit your plate just before we start, ask me to take your name off the list, and I’ll put in an alternate. After we start, I’m not going to take your name off unless you have a really good reason, and I can find an alternate to take your place. Otherwise, don’t deliberately break a rule just to get a DQ. You will not just get a DQ, but banned.
Do not post any PMs, even as a joke. If you are going to make an image joke regarding PMs, at least make it obvious that it’s a joke (e.g. make it using MSPaint.)
English only in game. No foreign languages or encrypted posts are allowed. This prevents the open flow of information. I will make certain exceptions for certain foreign words that have entered the English vernacular, such as “Hasta la vista,” or “Por que?” but an entire post in a foreign language will not be permitted.
