M55: The Last Party - Game Thread

#1 Post by worcej » Sun Apr 26, 2020 5:54 pm

Welcome to M55: The Last Party!
GM: worcej
Start Date: 04/27/20 2:00 PM PST / 5:00 PM EST
Phase lengths: 48/24

Mafia is an educated guessing game of epic proportions. The objective of the game (for the town majority) is to kill all mafia members before they outnumber the rest of the town. 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.

GENERAL RULES

0. The GM reserves the right to adjudicate individual scenarios that arise during the course of the game at his discretion.
1. All players must vote at least once per game day, and post at least twice per game day.
2. All players are forbidden from posting screenshots of their role PMs.
3. All players are forbidden from using encryption.
4. All players are forbidden from using non-sanctioned PMing, or copied mechanics.
5. All spectators and players who have been eliminated are forbidden from posting on all comment threads related to the game notes.
6. All players are forbidden from cheating.
7. All players are required to play to win.
8. Players and/or teams may not concede the game in public.
9. All players must not +1 other players' posts. However you are greatly encouraged to +1 any GM posts. In fact, I would say this is mandatory but I doubt most of you will read this little bit in here hehe...


ELABORATION

0. Given a lack of omniscience, the GM cannot create a rule to resolve all possible scenarios pre-emptively. To compensate for this, the GM is permitted to resolve a given scenario however they see fit, within the remit of the rules listed above, in the interest of all participants. The GM will resolve all scenarios as closely as possible to the intention of the rules, and will present an explanation regarding the adjudication to the greatest possible detail (which does not compromise anything in-game) and as closely in accordance with the written rules as possible.

1. You MUST cast a vote at least once during each day phase - failure to do so will lead to substitution or modkill, at the GM's discretion. You may vote and then 'unvote' (see below) if you change your mind as the Day progresses. Ending the day with a vote on “No Lynch” is permitted and you may end the phase with an 'unvote' in place, it will be treated the same as a "No Lynch". During each day phase, every player MUST make at least two game-related posts. The GMs will use reasonable discretion when applying this rule.

2. No role PMs have been posted in the setup information since it is a close setup. The GM will not confirm anything about role PMs unless an ability from a possible role allows it.

3. Encryption is defined as posting an encoded message on public channels that an average person would require outside software or other tools to decode. It is perfectly acceptable to leave "hidden messages" in your posts (for example, spelling out "I AM THE COP" with the first letters of every sentence), but as a rule of thumb, if you don't think the average user could decode it without a decryption service, don't post it.

4. All in-game communications should be kept within the thread. Only GM endorsed QuickTopic threads can be used for communicating with one another outside of the main game thread; aside from this, there should be no other forms of private messaging between players. You may PM the GM with questions or instructions.

5. Players who have been removed from the game are no longer playing the game, and will not be permitted to comment on it in private messages or comment threads. A special QuickTopic "God Thread" will be opened for individuals who wish to spectate on the game, or players who have been eliminated. Use this channel to discuss the game while it is still ongoing.

6. This is a catch-all rule intended to preserve the spirit of the game. If you are considering saying or doing something that may be against the spirit of the game, message the GM about it before saying/doing it and the GM will let you know whether it is allowed or not.
To clarify further: Players may not copy and paste any game related Mechanics. Players may not doctor and/or create fake game related mechanics or GM PMs. Players may not share personal correspondence between GM to player under any circumstances. The GM will not confirm any claims, or adjudicate based upon anything that could easily be sorted out through questioning and evidentiary circumstance.

7. This rule simply means that your actions should in some conceivable way advance your win condition as stated in your role PM. This rule is somewhat subjective, because the difference between a mistake and sabotage is sometimes hard to determine; the GM will exercise caution and restraint in observing this rule. This also means that if you need to leave the game for any reason, you should not simply drop out, but should message me first so I can determine the best course of action.

8. If someone wishes to concede defeat, they must PM the GM, or post in their relevant QT thread for the GM to check it over. Public concessions are not permitted.

9. You are permitted to click the "+1" on any other player's in-game posts because I (worcej) think it is fun and it will be interesting to see who reads these rules or not. Giving +1s to the GM is actively encouraged because I like karma. Like I said earlier, should be mandatory if you ask me...

10. Players are expected to treat each other with respect and refrain from personal attacks. Players who would like to raise an issue about personal attacks (either targeted at them or at another player) should contact the GM directly. The GM will, at a minimum, contact the player to let them know an issue has been raised about them. The GM has discretion to issue specific or general warnings to players in the thread or by PM, to remove or modkill players for personal attacks (even if no warning has been issued), or take whatever other actions they deem necessary to address the issue.

PENALTIES

The penalty for breaking one of the above rules is decided at the GM’s discretion, up to and including immediate removal from the game and/or sanctions from future games. Removal and/or sanction are instruments of last resort and will be used only if absolutely necessary. Sanctions such as future bans will be determined by the consensus of the active player base after the game has concluded. A player removed from the game may or may not have their role revealed on removal, depending on the circumstances surrounding their removal.



MISCELLANEOUS NOTES

SPAM:
Spamming (defined as excessive content-free posting; or, excessive posting regarding subjects irrelevant to the game) is not mod-killed by rule in this game. The in-game voting mechanic exists to curb any advantage that spamming as a tactic may confer; please reference the “VOTING” section below for more information. Suffice to say that spamming is not worth anyone’s time in this setup, and will be frowned upon, so while you may not be lynched or mod-killed for spamming, please refrain from doing so.

PLAYER SILENCES:
Players that have other participants on their mute list are asked to remove them for the duration of this game. Disputes stemming from outside of this game should not carry over into the gameplay. If they do, the GM reserves the right to address these issues and potentially remove or sanction players if it becomes a disruption.

FORUM SILENCES:
If a player is silenced on the forum by the site moderators/admins, an alternate will take their place for the duration of their silence. The silenced player will then have the option to take their position back over or leave it in the hands of the alternate. As long as the silence does not stem from actions involving the mafia thread, there will be no in-game sanctions for a forum silence.

REPLACEMENTS:
A player wishing to drop out may be replaced at the GM's discretion. Individuals wishing to serve as potential replacements must NOT join the out-of-game God QT. Replacement is not guaranteed.

ROLE ACTIONS:
If you have any actions to take, please PM your action the GMs. Night actions will be processed at the end of the night and can be changed up to that point. Mafia's nightkill and roleblock will be voted on in the mafia chat.


VOTING

There are three types of voting within this game: collective voting to execute perceived Mafia in Day phases, collective voting to end a Day or Night phase, and Mafia voting to kill town members in Night phases.

“Lynch” vote: The first level of voting is for whom you intend to kill. Notate this vote with a pair of hash symbols before your intended vote target. (e.g., ##VOTE VECNA) You do not need to spell out your intended target's username fully; as long as the GM can understand who you're referencing. In the event of a tie during an execution vote, no one shall be killed.
PLEASE NOTE: If you do not use double hashtags your vote will not be counted, for reasons of fairness but also because it is unlikely the GM will see your vote using the CTRL+F feature and this rule thus prevents vote miscounts.
Must Vote: At the end of the Day phase, all participating players must have their vote on a candidate. You may ##VOTE and then ##UNVOTE if you change your mind as the Day progresses, however you may not end the phase with an ##UNVOTE in place. Anyone violating this rule will be modkilled unless there are very extenuating circumstances. Ending the day with a vote on “No Lynch” is permitted.

Hammer Vote: The second level of voting is whether or not to employ the hammer mechanic. By default, days and nights are set to 48/24 hours long; however, players may instead elect to activate the hammer mechanic. Notate this vote with a pair of hashes before the word end. (EX: ##END). The day will end as soon as a majority of players are voting to endhammer. Please note that a majority of players on the same wagon is NOT required, simply a majority end votes will end the day with the current vote totals. If you are not able to vote before the hammer is dropped, you will not be penalized for failing to vote during that day. Every player must vote end to activate hammer mechanic during night phases.

Mafia Vote: The third level of voting refers to Mafia members choosing their factional NK (nightkill) target during Night phases. The mafia members will use their separate QuickTopic thread to discuss this. Please make your votes in bold, like so: kill Zultar (< b > kill Zultar < / b >). Mafia NK will be decided by majority vote. In the event of a tie, the oldest vote will break the tie. The oldest vote determines which member of the Mafia team actually performs the kill, unless the mafia team designates someone to make the kill.

PLEASE DO NOT POST.

This is a closed role madness setup. You will receive little information from me and will be dependent on the in-game mechanics.

The only information you have is the following:
  1. There is one mafia faction, one town faction, and a 3P faction
  2. There is at least one 3p (obviously)
  3. Every role has an action. It may be triggered or player initiated and it may or may not target/visit players.
  4. Role and alignment of the player will be revealed on flips, unless an ability prevents it
  5. The Role PM will be added to the flip announcement due to the variety of interpretations of specific roles out on the interwebs. If an ability prevents the flip announcement, the role PM will not be added
  6. For ability adjudication, the town teams ability will go first, then mafia, followed by 3P. AKA: If a town roleblock targets a mafia roleblock, the town roleblock will go off and the mafia one will not due to being roleblocked
  7. Kills can be roleblocked, unless an ability prevents it

Night Ability adjudication is the following:
  1. RB-type abilities
  2. Protective-type abilities
  3. Investigative-type abilities
  4. Killing abilities

GM Note:
Lame... I have to make this post now out loud because I missed something. General Rule #9 should read:

9. All players may +1 other players' posts. You are also greatly encouraged to +1 any GM posts. In fact, I would say this is mandatory but I doubt most of you will read this little bit in here hehe...

Another GM Note:
Please be sure to read the rules - there are changes in there.

In general - I am following the Foxcastle proposed rule text, which was copied and pasted into the rules. If you feel someone is being excessively rude/abusive/personal, please PM me and I will intervene to the best of my abilities. My goal is to allow for interesting game play and fun without the thread divulging into attacks and vitriol.

With that being said, I am a fairly easy going person and don't get offended easily, so I will not make a list of what is or is not acceptable to say or do. Just keep in mind some other people may not like being told to 'F#@% off' or 'Go die' - use caution and know your audience.

Please continue to not post.

You slowly start to come to consciousness… the pillow you are lying on feels warm and almost sand-like… why the heck did you end up in this crappy hotel and why does it smell like the ocean too? Last thing you remembered was going out to a big party in the city right before everyone got locked down due to COVID-19… Someone handed you a drink and you gulped it down and then everything went black… must’ve been pretty strong…

Suddenly a wave smacks you in the face and you snap awake, eyes wide open. You see you are on a beach on what looks to be an island with a forest in front of you. To your left and right, off in the far distance, you see what looks to be other people standing there equally confused, each one separated by almost a football field apart from the other. You cannot make out who they are or if you even know them.

At this point, you notice you are wearing a futuristic watch on your hand that wasn’t there before. It has a speaker on it as well. You try to take it off, but it won’t budge.


“Welcome to my game…” the speaker erupts “You were hand selected to be a part of this little ‘competition’ due to your unique skills…”

You look around to see if anyone is watching you. You see the others in the distance look equally confused. One even flailing their hands in the air in a dramatic gesture.

“On this island, there are 21 of you. Some are here because we selected them. Others are here working for me as my hunters. And some are here without permission… interfering in my little game…”

Panic sets in. Which one are you? Did someone invite you here in the past and you didn’t realize it? Is this your ex-boss who you got taken to HR and fired for being a dick?!

“The goal is simple: be the last group alive. My team is equipped with the means to end you quickly, however will you be able to outwit them and overcome them yourselves? Time will tell. Just remember, there is no such thing as honor in a deathmatch…”

Off in the distance you hear a horn. You cannot tell if it’s the Hunger Games or the Purge, but clearly it isn’t a sign of a good thing…

“Good luck…” the speaker echos before turning off…

Well, I am not on for long... on a zoom faculty meeting. Even chatting with YOU is more interesting.

I mean, If I know worcej, he probably has some sort of anti-mass-claim stuff in here, so likely we do not want to do that.

Brainbomb, Jamiet, would the two of you like to have a room to work out all your sexual tension?
