    1. What do you say about Role Revealing? In or out?

    2. In the NF game right now, there is this allowance that the lynched player can make one final post. Strictly restricted to the game and not allowed anything about reads/doubts/hate. Think it'll work?

    Role revealing will be allowed as will name claiming etc. As for bah posts I considered them but decided to keep it simple for now.

    13 players in like 9 hours. I am in no real rush to start so I am going to let signups sit and see if others want to join for a couple days. Just know that this is enough that if nobody signs up I can make the game work.

    NEW PLAYER TIPS AND INFORMATION (Credit to Peacesells):


    The following tips are meant only for beginning mafia players. They are designed to help get a brand new player past the normal pitfalls new players often stumble in.


    Mentality - Approach the game with an understanding that other players will get under your skin. Guaranteed.

    It is very important to understand that Mafia is a game of liars. Be aware that both the good guys (town) and bad guys (scum) are capable of lying and both can have legitimate reasons for doing so. Your statements will be misrepresented. When this happens, try and push down the normal emotional reaction it will illicit. You may feel offended when someone makes inaccurate statements about you. Keep in mind that this is not personal. The scum team have clear reasons for doing so and a town player may have his/her own reasons for doing so.

    Understand that other town players do not know your alignment. So, they are just as suspicious of you as you are of them. They may provoke you on purpose just to see how you react.

    When someone seems scummy to you, do not focus solely on them. This is called tunneling and can cause you to miss important clues from other players. Keep an open mind. Be willing to change your mind.


    Posting - Your words a two edged sword.

    What you post will do 2 things. It will be a vehicle to express your thoughts about other players or defend yourself. What you post will also be used against you. Expect this. Consider this when you post. Also, it is not necessary to post everything you are thinking. This will come across poorly. Form a concise thought, think about it for awhile, then post.

    Try and get around 3 solid posts per game day. (Not real day.) This is a good amount of activity for a new player.

    All new players seem to have the urge to react to everything posted. Don't do this. It's understandable. You are excited about playing your first game. The game will be way slower than you think it should be. Keep in mind that others have "been there, done that" so they won't have the same urge as you. Also, most of us have lives that take away from constant refreshing the page looking for a new post. So, say what you have to say then go away for awhile. Let several other people have their say before you post again.

    If you are on the scum team participate in the quick topic provided by the mod. Elicit advice from your team mates. Do not copy/paste anything from the quick topic as the formatting will make it obvious in the game thread.


    The Game - Know what you are playing.

    Here is a good link to browse through before you play your first game. http://wiki.mafiascu...title=Main_Page

    Read through a completed "BASIC" game. Try and figure out who is scum and who is town as you read. This is the best way to get a feel on how the day and night phases work.

    Read the rules at the beginning of the game carefully. Each mod will have a slightly different set of rules. The biggest rule you should be a ware of is to NOT discuss the game with ANYONE outside of the game unless specifically told to do so by the mod. Also, once you are dead don't post in the thread until the game is over. Some mods allow you one post to say "bah, I'm dead!" But do not include any game info in that post.


    Terms:

    Common mafia terms. An in depth glossary is located here. http://wiki.mafiascu...?title=Glossary

    Town: A collective term for the uninformed majority within the player set. While the Town is not explicitly structured as a faction (that is, any given Townie does not know who else is on their team), everyone in the Town has the same win condition and should work together to eliminate scum. For instance, "this person is so obviously Town", referring to that player having the Town Win Condition.

    Vanilla: A town player with no role.

    Scum: Scum is a catch-all term for any member of an informed minority, such as Serial Killers and Mafia. During a dayphase, everybody is seemingly trying to locate and eliminate these roles.

    Meta: short for metagame, is a term for the knowledge of how a player or moderator will act based on previous experience. It only makes sense that people will pick up on, say, an ordinarily active player lurking in the games where they are scum.

    Lynch: The lynch is the Town's collective killing method. The majority of living players (both Town and scum) generally must agree on who to lynch by casting votes for the person they want to see dead. A successful lynch usually requires a majority vote.

    Day phase: This is the phase in which players will discuss and vote on who to lynch.

    Night phase: This is the phase when most roles are acted upon. This includes the scum team submitting their decision on who to kill to the moderator.

    WIFOM: Read all about it here. http://wiki.mafiascu...n_Front_Of_Me�� It is important to understand this concept as this term will be used often.

    Tunneling: Focusing on one player at the exclusion of all other players or evidence. Think tunnel vision.

    Bussing:Bussing is the act of distancing yourself from your scumpartners, usually by helping to lynch them (and hopefully playing a major role in convincing others that they are worthy to be lynched)

    Role: Your pm from the mod at the beginning of the game will describe your character. This will be your role. Examples are Doctor, Cop, Scum, Vanilla Town.

    Win Condition: This will be provided to you in your role pm. It describes the circumstances that must take place in order for you to win the game.

    Basic Game: This will be a game mostly vanilla town players and a few non-vanilla roles. Usually a Doctor, Cop and a serial killer or vig (vigilante) along with the scum team that may include a godfather.

    Advanced Game: This game will have many roles. Every player involved in the game may have a role.

    FOS (Finger of Suspicion): A term used when a player is suspicious of another player yet they are unwilling to vote for their lynch at the moment.

    L-1: This means the player named only needs 1 more vote to be lynched.

    OMGUS: (Oh my god you suck). This basically means you are voting for someone because they have voted for you or they are pressing a case against you.

    Lurking: Not participating in the discussion yet most likely reading everything.

    Flailing: A bit of a hot button word that is used to describe someone defending themselves erratically.

    QT (Quick Topic): This is a mod provided place for selected players to communicate off thread. 99% of scum teams will be provided one. Example. http://www.quicktopi...hRGfk9Cn��Otherplayers may be provided one depending on their roles. In a basic game usually only the scum team has a QT.





    - - - Updated - - -

    I also have a post on ethics that I will introduce when someone else posts ( my current info goes over the maximum word count by about 5k). For now know that if this is your first game I will explain all basic things to you in private chat when you play and that I will be working with you to assure that you understand the game. I will not compromise it or help you unfairly however, I am simply going to be a guide and a tool to answer your questions about how to play.

    I've invited a few people to see if they want to try a new site. None of them are any worse than I, just different. Some better actually.

    By saying that I am saying that if one of you decides to fuck this game over like the last three have been a group of howler monkeys will one day delimb your grandchildren
