1- I will hostkill or sub your role for unsportsmanlike conduct, inactivity or breaking the rules. Inaction kills games, so if you sign up, sign up to play and play nice.
2- Do not post a screen cap of your role PM in the game thread, via PMs, via VMs, or via any other way (including QT if that's possible). On the other hand, quotes or reporting contents from private conversations (i.e. saying he said...) or CCing another player when sending a PM are permitted, as is posting screen caps of private conversations or linking to QT in the game thread. Role claiming and lying through your teeth are more than welcome though. :P
3- As always, you must include me in all your private conversations related to the game. That means including me in the list of recipients of your PMs, sharing QuickTopic or PMing me game related content that you share with another player via other means.
4- The game consists of alternating phases of day and night. Each phase will end at 8 PM Eastern Daylight Time and will last 24 hours.
5- During day phases, players vote for a player to lynch; the player with the most votes is eliminated. To cast your vote, simply proceed this way Vote: (Insert player’s name). To change your vote, first retract your vote by writing Unvote: (Insert player’s name) and right below, writing the name of the person you want to vote for. Players can also vote to avoid a lynch by writing Vote: No Lynch.
6- Each night phase, the mafia will try to eliminate one player from the opposing team. Most of the players have night actions. The way to use those night actions is included in the role PM you’ll receive on Night 0.
7- The game is fairly basic, the roles are self-explanatory, so it’s really open to anyone who wants to play, no matter what your skill level or your knowledge of the game might be, the regulars and myself will try our very best to make you feel welcome. Also, you don’t need to know the lawn decorations people are based on to win this game; the traditional doctor, cop, godfather, etc. are mostly all present so you shouldn’t feel disoriented. If you have any questions, ask me; that's what I'm here for.
8- Except for mafia members, I'd ask all eliminated not to communicate information pertaining to the game to players still in the game, and if possible, to stop posting in the thread until the end of the game except for one post-death message that shall not contain information about the game or other players.
