Mafia is an educated guessing game of epic proportions. The objective of the game is to lynch or kill all mafia members before they outnumber the rest of the town. It's much like a game of poker because mafia members are also part of the town during the day and may manipulate the vote to their liking. If the mafia at any time outnumber or equal the townspeople, they win. The town's goal is to lynch all the members of the mafia.
The game is typically very active, so the thread will get big quickly. However, it is essential to read the thread to play the game. If you do not have the time or patience to read the whole thread, do not play.
Cheating: Cheating includes (but is not limited to): 1. Posting after death. You may have one polite goodbye post, but it may not contain any potentially game-changing information. 2. Ruining the game by doing something like hand out your mafia's member list to the town. 3. Logging on to someone else's account to get their role or looking over someone's shoulder to get their role. 4. Comparing role PM times to determine roles. 5. Posting screenshots of anything 6. Posting or sharing any PM you receive from a host. 7. Purposely getting yourself modkilled. 8. Signing up more than once using smurf accounts. 9. Betting items outside of the game in exchange for in-game benefits. 10. Sharing accounts with other players. 11. Breadcrumbing the specific phrasing of your role PM. Do not compare the phrasing in your role PM to prove your alignment. You can claim the abilities you have, but you can't use the specific phrasing of your role PM. 12. Posting a false role PM phrased as if you received it from the host. You can still fake roleclaim, but you cannot make it look like you are posting a PM you received from the host. If you cheat then you will be banned.
Mod Font: This is mod font. It is reserved for moderators. Please do not use it.
Question Font: This is question font. Use it to ask the host/cohost questions about the rules. Please do us a favor and read the rules before you ask anything. You can also PM the question to host/cohost in which case you don't have to use this font.
Activity: You must post in this thread once per day/night cycle and vote every day while you are alive. If you fail to do so, you will be modkilled.
Smurfs: No smurfs.
Spam: Spam is not tolerated, nor is any off-topic material. Do not discuss Proleague here. Do not talk about Starcraft II here. Play Mafia here. This is as much a rule as it is a good advice to town.
Editing: Editing is not allowed for any reason. This is the one part of the site where it is okay to be double posting, even triple-posting. While I ask for everybody to post as concisely as possible, post again if you have to edit anything.
Inappropriate posts: If you want to post something insulting or inappropriate and know the TL mods would have a problem with it elsewhere, don't post it here. The hosts have the final say on what is inappropriate. If you do not like how someone is talking to you, please PM host/cohost, flamewheel, or Mig before involving the TL staff. If you are unsatisfied with how the situation is resolved, then you can appeal to the TL staff normally.
I'm going to warn you if you're being excessively unpleasant towards other players. If you disregard my warning then I'm going to modkill you. This is not DotA2.
Reporting posts: The report button is a nice feature for regular TL, but not for this forum. We prefer to deal with things in house if possible to avoid confusion among the TL staff. If you have a problem with how someone is posting, talk to the host/cohost, flamewheel, or Mig before using your report button. Please do not use your report button for anything other than inappropriate posts which you feel are not being dealt with adequately.
Ban discussions: Don't talk about how you think host/cohost should handle a situation until after the game. If you have a problem then PM host/cohost.
Play to win. This means you play your best to help your team win while you are alive and in the game. However, this does not mean that you should try to win by being a jerk to the other players so they all want to quit playing.
This also means that you cannot leave the game without a good reason without a ban. These situations will be dealt with on a case by case basis. PM your host if you need to leave the game.
You have been warned.
Out of thread communication:
It is common for mafia (and town circles if PMs are allowed) to use a medium outside of TL such as QuickTopics or IRC to communicate during the game. Please be mindful that other players may be more tech savvy than you and they may attempt impersonate members of your team or attempt to infiltrate your chat. You use these media at your own risk.
Furthermore, I consider it cheating if you intentionally try to find out who is mafia by trying to find their QuickTopic or entering their IRC channel or similar. Don't do it.
1. Voting is done in this thread. Do not PM me your vote. 2. Please vote in the following format: ##Vote Qatol. Votes not done in the correct fashion might not be counted. Host/cohost will update vote counts whenever we feel like it. 3. No conditional voting. 4. You may vote for yourself. You may not vote for anyone dead or outside the game. 5. In the event of a tie the person with the most votes first wins (or loses). 6. Voting is mandatory. You may NOT abstain.
This game is open to people with less than threefour three games played on this subforum. First come first served. Whatever, we're full!
Modkills: This game follows the TL Mafia Ban List. If you are modkilled, your punishment will go beyond being eliminated from this game. Please refer to it for questions about your punishment. If you want to use this game to sit out your ban, please PM flamewheel or post in the Ban List.
Replacements This game uses replacements. If a player wishes to be replaced then he must stop posting in the game and send a PM to host and cohost. If a player is modkilled then he will be replaced.
Clues: There are no clues anywhere.
PMs PMs are not allowed in this game.
Time Cycle: This game will follow a (24 hour night/48 day hour) cycle. Any votes/actions that are not in host and cohost hands before deadline will be disregarded. Currently the deadline is 01:00 CEST[local], but that may be subject to change.
Credits: Thanks to anyone who has ever hosted a game. This list grows ever longer. Thanks to zelblade for cohosting. Thanks to everyone who helped balance this game. Thanks to the coaches. No seriously, they're awesome.
If you have not read all the rules then you cannot join this game and you will be subject to modkill or worse if you join it anyway.
This is a semi-open setup. You will know which roles may appear in the game but not the number. Well, there is at least one vanilla townie. But that's all you know.
Vanilla Townie The most fantastic role to get in mafia! Your only tools are your sharp mind and your perseverance. Oh, and you can vote for the lynch like everybody else.
Cop You are a cop or a detective or whatever. At night you can (and it's strongly recommended that you take advantage of this) message the host and cohost the name of one of your fellow players and we will tell you his alignment. Oh, and you can vote for the lynch like everybody else.
Medic You are a medic. You are blessed with healing hands which you may lay upon one of your fellow players each night. This will protect them from one hit, be it scum or vigilante. Just message the host and cohost with your target and he'll be protected. Oh, and you can vote for the lynch like everybody else.
Veteran You are a veteran. Many years of practice getting shot has rendered your partially immune to it. While everybody else only has a single night life, you have two. Oh, and you can vote for the lynch like everybody else.
Jailkeeper You are a jailkeeper. Not only do you keep the jail, you also get to throw people in it. Every night you can PM the name of a player to the host and cohost and this player cannot be target of any other night actions but he cannot use his own night action either. Oh, and you can vote for the lynch like everybody else.
1-shot Vigilante You are a 1-shot vigilante. Many years of practice shooting people has rendered you capable of shooting people. Unfortunately, you're almost out of bullets at this point. You actually only have one bullet left, so use it with care. PM the name of your target to host and cohost and this player will get shot. Oh, and you can vote for the lynch like everybody else.
Goon You are a goon. You can't do much other than bleed red. You and your scum buddies can communicate in this quicktopic. Oh, and you can vote for the lynch like everybody else.
Godfather You are a godfather. You are the head of the mafia and as such you don't have to get your hands real dirty. When cops check you out, they will erroneously think that you're innocent! Muahahaha! You and your scum buddies can communicate in this quicktopic. Oh, and you can vote for the lynch like everybody else.
Roleblocker You are a roleblocker. You block roles. Each night you can PM the name of one of your fellow players and he will practically not have a role for the purpose of that night. You and your scum buddies can communicate in this quicktopic. Oh, and you can vote for the lynch like everybody else.
Town wins when there are no more scum.
Scum wins when they outnumber town or nothing can prevent this from happening.
Scum KP is fixed at 1.
It takes #/2 rounded up votes to lynch somebody. In case of a tie, the person who got there first gets the prize.
shamelessly stole this from EchelonTee. thanks mate!
1.) It's already in the rules, but remember, no editing. If you feel you must correct your post, please make a second post to clarify your statements. You may put EBWOP ("Edit by way of post," a handy acronym invented by semioldguy) at the beginning of your post to indicate that you are clearing up a point you made. If your EBWOP post is several posts after your original, please quote your original post in your EBWOP post for the sake of clarity.
2.) Only sign up if you know you will have the time available to properly play the game. It is essential that players remain active in a newbie game, so only /in if you are able to play to your fullest.
3.) If there is any sort of issue, you are unsure about some mechanic, or you are just wondering if your devilish scheme is even allowed, feel free to PM me, or ask in-thread with green text. Don't feel shy; these games are meant to be a place to learn and be open.
4.) Behave as gentlemen (or ladies). Things get heated here, but personal attacks will not be acceptable, and will be dealt with accordingly. Remember, this is a game; have fun and happy scumhunting!

Oh I somehow got the impression that it's three strikes and out. I think it was for me. Anyway, it's four strikes and out now and you're /in
Please don't hurt me...

I have some questions about the setup/roles: It will be 3 mafia vs 9 townies? Is either the medic or his target notified of a successful medic save? Is the veteran notified if he is shot? Is the jailkeeper notified of a successful save or roleblock? Is the jailkeeper's target informed of a successful save or roleblock? Is the mafia roleblocker's target informed that he was roleblocked? If so, will he be told that it was by the mafia roleblocker as opposed to the jailkeeper? Can you "roleblock" the veteran? What happens if the jailkeeper and roleblocker target each other and the vigilante shoots the roleblocker?
Is either the medic or his target notified of a successful medic save? Medic is told but not his target
Is the veteran notified if he is shot? Yep
Is the jailkeeper notified of a successful save or roleblock? Nope
Is the jailkeeper's target informed of a successful save or roleblock? Jailkeeper's target will just get told that he was roleblocked
Is the mafia roleblocker's target informed that he was roleblocked? If so, will he be told that it was by the mafia roleblocker as opposed to the jailkeeper? He will be told, but not if it was roleblocker or jailkeeper.
Can you "roleblock" the veteran? Yep. Roleblocking essentially makes someone roleless for the night.
What happens if the jailkeeper and roleblocker target each other and the vigilante shoots the roleblocker? Roleblocker takes precedence over jailkeeper who takes precedence over vigilante. Roleblock would block the jailkeeper so roleblocker doesn't get protection and then he'll get shot in the face and likely die.
Please don't hurt me...
