I. No nameclaiming, roleplaying, or hinting at your character. Roleclaiming is fine, but hinting at your character is not permitted. For example, saying that you’re the cop is allowed, but saying that you’re Maya Fey is not. (Please note that this doesn’t mean that Maya is the cop, or that she’s even in the game.) Depending on the severity of the breach, you may be warned, subbed out, or modkilled due to breaking this rule.
Faking or revealing your true role PM falls under nameclaiming and will be an immediate modkill. Posting little bits of your role PM is not allowed, either, and you will be warned privately if that happens; paraphrase what your ability is.
II. We’ll also modkill or sub out if flaming/baiting comes into play. Arguments definitely can get irritating and heated at times, as we know very well from experience, but please, try not to let it escalate into flaming. It’s just a game. You will, of course, be warned at first if it’s not a severe case.
III. Please be active! We understand that life exists and that sometimes, it’s hard to force yourself to be interested in the game, but if you will be unable to participate, please ask for a sub. If two phases pass (one day/night cycle) without us being informed that you will be inactive, you will be given a warning, and if you continue to be inactive for the entire phase after the warning, you’ll be subbed out. Only in-thread activity counts.
IV. Send HumanDawn and I all private communications. Include us in your PM conversations, give us your QuickTopic links, etc. If you decide to talk to someone about the game on Skype, make a group and include us in it. HumanDawn’s Skype username is humanirony, while mine is leaves.by.the.thousands; tell us who you are if your username doesn’t make it obvious, too.
V. The voting system works as follows: to vote for someone, post (in bold, otherwise we may miss it) ‘VOTE: Player’, and to remove your vote, post ‘UNVOTE: Player’. No lynch is an acceptable vote, but in the case that the votes are tied between a player and no lynch, the player will be lynched. Also, to join the game, please name one thing you know about the franchise. Anything flies.
VI. Each phase will last approximately twenty-four hours. Updates will happen at 4pm, Eastern Standard Time, which is GMT-5. If an hour passes after the scheduled update time, then we were unable to update, in which case the phase will be extended until 4pm the next day.
VII. If you change your username, please post it in-thread to avoid confusion.
VIII. You may make only one deathpost after you’ve died. If you wish to make another, even as a joke that holds no information, ask HumanDawn and/or Akuraito first. And do not, under any circumstances, reveal information to anyone after you have died. It completely ruins the game; let all information you have die with you. Necroliking is forbidden, too. Also, you may not reveal your character, ability, alignment, etc. or any sensitive game information to a deceased player unless otherwise informed.
IX. Night action results will be sent at the end of the phase.
X. We reserve the right to modify or add any rules as the game progresses.
