Game Instructions

The MH specific game rules will be explained below. If you would like to play, please announce your participation in the "Mafia Game Discussion" Thread. This thread is strictly for playing the game. Thank you.​
Players will be secretly assigned roles. One group will play the "Mafia"; the other group will play the "Townies". The Townies will not know who other Townies or Mafia members are. However the Mafia members will know who their fellow Mafia members are.​
During the "day" phase, all of the players debate the identities of the Mafia members and at the end each person will vote to eliminate a suspect. This is carried out in the "game thread". In the game's "night" phase the Mafia will privately discuss who they should kill. They will then send this person’s name to the host, as well as other actions. The goal of the Town is to eliminate every single Non-Town Faction. The goal of the Non-Town Factions is not only to have an equal number of members as remaining Townies, but also to completely kill off all the other Non-Town Factions, except explicitly stated otherwise.​
A typical game will start with a minimum of 7 players, 5 Townies and 2 Mafia members. The members that will be Mafia and Townies will be chosen through a random list generator. There the participating players' names will be put in and after the randomisation the Mafia roles will go to the names at the top of the list. This is to avoid butthurt and favouritism accusations. :'[​
Lastly, the numbers of Mafia Members depends on the number of participants!​
  • 7 - 10 = 2 Mafias
  • 11 - 13 = 3 Mafias
  • 14 - 17 = 4 Mafias
  • 18 - 20 = 5 Mafias
  • 21 - 24 = 6 Mafias
    etc.
This number is only for guidance, there can be more/less mafias than written here depending on the other roles in the game like two mafia groups, recruitable roles etc.​



Game Phases

The game will be split up into two phases: Day and Night.

PHASE 1: DAY

This is where you discuss/argue about who is and isn't mafia. As soon as the day phase starts, you are allowed to vote. The day phase will take place strictly inside the “game” thread. Any discussions regarding the day phase outside the thread will be dealt with severely.
The length of a Day phase is set by the host, usually starting at ~24 hours and getting shorter the less players remain alive.
VOTE KILL [user]
This will be the manner in which you vote. Make sure it is clearly displayed in your post though caps/coloured or bold font.​
You will be only allowed 1 vote change per phase. So use your vote wisely.​
PHASE 2: NIGHT
The host closes the game thread during the night phases.​
There should be no discussion about the game during the night phase, regardless of the player being still in the game or already out.
During the night phase, the mafia members will collaborate and choose who they want to kill. They will not do this in the thread, but via PM's with each other/other alternative communication channels approved by the host, such as piratepad.​
At the beginning of the game the Mafia members will be informed of the other members. They must PM the host telling them their choice for the night's murder and the murderer from their team. There can only be one murder in the night phase therefore the mafia members must come to an agreement.​
If the Mafia don't send in their night kill before the night phase ends, then their action will not be performed. The Mafia can also send in their night actions during the previous day phase, if they think they will not be online during the coming night.​
The length of a Night phase is set by the host, usually ~12 hours.​



MH Specific Game Rules

ACTIVITY RULES
  • Be active in every day phase and post at least three times. It's a Minor Violation if you don't do that and will result in Penalty Vote(s)/Hostkill and ban from future games (Hall of Shame). If you are going to miss out a period of time due to real life events make sure to inform the host, who is going to judge each situation individually and decide whether or not taking the player out of the game is necessary.
  • Place at least one vote every day phase. It's a Minor Violation if you forget to place a vote and will result in Penalty Vote(s)/Hostkill and ban from future games (Hall of Shame).
  • Don't post more than 100 times per day phase. This is to reduce spam and the volume of posts per game. Nobody has time to go through hundreds of one liner posts with the same content over and over again (Imperium Copyright Rule). If you hit the volume restriction, it's a Minor Violation. You will get a Penality Vote per 10 additional posts you make.
  • No talking during Night Phases, except for some roles that it is explicitly allowed and encouraged to. The Night phases are only to send in Night Actions. The scale of punishment for players who are caught discussing game content in the night may vary from Minor Violation to instant Hostkill, depending on the seriousness of the comment and/or warnings given before.
  • Dead people can't talk, so don't post once your character is dead. You are not allowed to help or influence others in any way if you are dead, including liking posts in the game thread or discussing game content in the Discussion thread. You can, however, lurk the game thread. If you post or influence the game regardlessly, you will be banned from future games (Hall of Shame).

OUTER THREAD RULES
  • Absolutely DO NOT discuss the game outside of the game thread (unless you are Mafia members discussing it with other mafia through pms/piratepad). This is so that people do not reveal their roles and ruin the game. Players violating this rule will be instantly hostkilled and banned from future games (Hall of Shame).
  • Do not directly comment on the current game, once you are dead. This is so you don't influence the players that are still playing. Violator of this rule will be banned from future games (Hall of Shame).

OTHER GAME RULES
  • You are not allowed to quote or screenshot PMs relating to the game, this includes quoting your Host, your role PM, or any private communication with other players. (You may, however, paraphrase in a way that leaves room for reasonable doubt). If you do, you will be hostkilled and banned from future games (Hall of Shame). Fake screenshots and quotes will be treated the same as genuine ones.
  • You are not allowed to do a Daytime-specific command if you don't have a role that can use that command. If you do, you will be hostkilled and banned from future games (Hall of Shame).
  • Daytime-specific commands cannot be used in the last hour of the day phase.
  • You are not allowed to ignore directions sent in to you by the host. It's a Minor Violation if you fail to respond accordingly.
  • You are not allowed to majorly edit the content of your posts, nor delete any of your own or someone else's post without the Host's approval. If you do, you may get a Minor Violation punishment or hostkilled immediately and banned from future games (Hall of Shame).
  • You are expected to play to your win condition(s). Intentionally undermining your team or joining a game with the sole intent to troll is not allowed. ("Bad" or "alternative" plays, however, are allowed, if you sincerely believe in their merit.) Remember that while you are playing for fun, others take the game seriously. Please do not play against your win condition or play in a manner that is deliberately harmful to your side, regardless of how small your chances are. (This infraction will follow the host's judgment or, if needed a second opinion, the Council's. It's recommended that the hosts don't do anything with the infractor during the game and only do so once the game is over.)

RULE BREAKING, PUNISHMENT & HALL OF SHAME
  • Minor Violations are "small rules violations", which do not result in a hostkill instantly, but are sanctioned with Penalty Votes first. For the first Minor Violation you get 1 Penalty Vote, for the second you get 3 Penalty Votes and the third gets you hostkilled. Three Minor Violations of any kind are a Major Violation and will lead to a hostkill.
  • If you disobey the rules above that are resulting with you being host killed and/or banned from future games, you will get registered in the Hall of Shame.
  • One Major Violation bans you from the upcoming game.
  • A second Major Violation of the same kind will ban you from the next three games.
  • A third Major Violation and you are out from all upcoming games.
  • No amnesty or prescription until further notice.



MH Specific Hosting Regulations

DAY PHASES & VOTINGS
  • Each active player has to vote during a day phase. Each player has the chance to change his vote once.
  • A day phase can be ended earlier, if and only if one player has collected more than a half+1 of the second votes ("locked votes") of all players and each player has voted at least once (Absolute Majority Voting).
  • If by the end of the regular time of the day phase two or more players have the same amount of votes, the second votes ("locked votes") are decisive. The player with the most locked votes is being lynched.
  • If one or more players have the same amount of votes and locked votes, the time of the regular day phase won't be extended. The lynch will be randomised among these top voted players.

NIGHT PHASES & ACTIONS
  • During the night phase each player that has a role with a night action may send it in to the host via PM.
  • The player may or may not make use of his action. If the player misses the deadline and does not submit his action within the given time, it is seen as not used action. It is possible, however, to submit it before the start of the night, if the player already knows he has no time to do it later.
  • The night actions are listed in Priority groups. The higher the priority ranking, the more likely it is that the night action is being executed successfully. First actions to be performed are those from P1, then P2 and ending with P3.
  • If two night action roles from the same priority group target the same player at night a coin flip will decide which night action is executed first.

1. PRIORITY - "ROLE BLOCKING"

  • Sane Apprentice (Townie): Targets a person at Night phase to learn from him. If the player manages to learn from the same target 2 times, he changes his role to his teacher's and is notified of the change and which role it is. If however his teacher gets blocked or killed he learns nothing that night. Once his role changed he cannot learn a new role.

KILLING ROLES
  • Daytime Vigilante (Townie): Similar to Mafia or the Serial Killer this role has a killing ability, but instead of killing secretly at night, the player openly kills somebody during the middle of the day.

  • Prosecutor (Townie): Can once per game during a Day phase openly declare another player guilty of being Mafia, upon which that player is marked with a Prosecutor's mark. At the end of the day the marked player's alignment will get revealed. If the marked player is not a townie he will get lynched immediately. If he's a townie the Prosecutor will get lynched instead. This lynch is special and doesn't replace the usual lynch of the Day. If he is daykilled the Prosecutor's mark disappears from the target player. (GAME 54)

TOWNIE CULT ROLES
  • Mason (Townie): Masons are a Group of Townies that know each other to be innocent. They can communicate with each other at Night if they choose, but otherwise have no special abilities. (GAME 6)
  • Mason Recruiter (Townie): A Mason Recruiter is a a Mason Group Leader that usually starts all by himself and tries to recruit one player each Night. He selects one player each night to try to recruit. If he picks a Pro-Townie Role, then that player joins the Group and is able to talk with other Group Members in the Group during the Nights. The Mason Recruiter dies if he attempts to recruit a Mafia Member or a Third Party. (GAME 6)

RECRUITABLE ROLES
  • Sleeper (Townie): The Sleeper thinks he is a regular Townie, which he is, unless he is targeted by the mafia with a successful killing ability. From this point on he becomes a normal Mafia Member and only wins if the mafia win. Until converted, Sleeper is pro-Town. (GAME 9)

ANTAGONISTS:
  • Mafia Boss (Mafia): The Mafia Boss shows the same to a Detective's investigations as a regular Townie would. He is usually in charge of coordinating the Mafia activity at night and may act as the contact person to the host. In case of disagreement with his fellow mafias over Night activities he has the final say. (GAME 2)
  • Mafia Detective (Mafia): The Mafia Detective has the ability to investigate one player per Night and learn the player's Role. Only he is told the role of his target via PM. Whenever the Mafia Detective's investigation ability is performed, he cannot be chosen to go for a kill on the same night. (GAME 6)
  • Mafia Janitor (Mafia): If the Janitor kills a player he cleans up the body after the kill. When the Day phase starts only he is PMed his victim's role while everyone else doesn't get to know his victim's role. When he dies the roles of all his victims are revealed to everyone. (GAME 23)
  • Mafia Poisoner (Mafia): The Mafia Poisoner has the ability to poison someone during the night. The player will die at Priority 3 next night phase. The Doctor can only save the victim in the night he's being poisoned. The Mafia cannot use another killing ability on the same night they use the Poisoner ability. (GAME 9)
  • Assassin (Mafia): The Assassin is a Mafia Member that may choose to kill at Daytime instead of the Night. Unlike Daytime Vigilantes he is not doing the Daykill publicly but via PM to the Host. (Game 10)
  • Mafia Mason (Mafia): A Mafia Mason is a pro-Mafia that can communicate with other pro-Town Masons. If targeted by the Mason Recruiter, the Mason Recruiter doesn't die and the Mafia Mason joins the Mason team without losing his role. The other pro-Town Masons believe the Mafia Mason to be a regular pro-Town Mason. (GAME 10)
  • Strongman (Mafia): Can kill someone who usually can't get killed (player who got protection from a doc or a bulletproof townie) and can't be hindered by the Prostitute either. He can however be redirected. The only way to avoid his kill is being a Hider and hiding behind someone else. After the first time the Strongman is used for a kill he loses his power and can only kill normally. (GAME 24)
  • Burden (Mafia): The Burden is like the Freeman on the Mafia Side. When the Burden is lynched or killed, the next night phase will skipped. All role effects which would have happened that Night(for example Mafia Poisoner kill) are moved to the next Night phase. (GAME 31)
  • Mafia Bomb Defuser (Mafia): The Mafia Bomb Defuser has the ability to defuse any Bomb. He can only use his ability once, and is notified by the host once it is used up. Other than that the Mafia Bomb Defuser is a normal Mafia Member. (GAME 31)
  • Mafia Escort (Mafia): Escort/Role Blocker may choose one player per Night to distract. That player will be prevented from performing his Night action, if he has one. When the role blocking action is chosen the Escort cannot execut a kill in the same night. (GAME 35)
  • Unskilled Mafia (Mafia) The Unskilled Mafia Member, is like a normal Member, but has only a 50% chance to succeed in killing his victim. The Unskilled Mafia doesn't know he is unskilled, nor do his team mates, and thinks he is a regular Mafia Member. (GAME 41)
  • Mafia Pirate (Mafia) At a night of his choice the Mafia Pirate may choose a Townie he wants to steal the ability from. From that point in the game, the robbed Townie's role changes to 'Townie' without him knowing it and the Mafia Pirate is free to use it as his own. The Mafia Pirate knows the ability stolen and uses it at the proper Day or Night phase that the stolen role demands. All original clauses of the stolen ability apply. If the Mafia Pirate tries to steal the ability from a Mafia or a Third Party Member as primary role, the Mafia Pirate dies. The Mafia Pirate is able to be selected as a mafia killer until he successfully steals a role - after that point, he can only kill by indirect means if he's stolen a role with killing capabilities (Insane Doctor, Daytime Vigilante, etc.). (GAME 41)
  • Mafia Bomb (Mafia): If the Mafia Bomb is killed by anybody, the killer dies too. If the Mafia Bomb is lynched, then he kills the person who cast the final vote on him. Other than that he is a regular Mafia Member. (GAME 41)
  • Mafia Rookie (Mafia): At the start of the game, the host presents the Mafia Rookie with up to three mafia roles of the host's choosing. If the Mafia Rookie successfully kills twice, he can pick one of those roles to become his primary role for the rest of the game. He can only choose a role at Night phase, but can use it the same Night once chosen. (GAME 71) UPDATED

THIRD PARTY:
  • Serial Killer (Third Party): The Serial Killer is like a lone Mafia Member. He kills once per night and his goal is to be the sole survivor. (GAME 5)
  • Second Mafia (Third Party): Structured just as the first, the members can variate though. The goal to win is not only to have an equal number of members as remaining Townies, but also to completely kill off the other Mafia/Third Parties. (GAME 7)
  • Mentor (Third Party): If the Mentor does not have a living Mentee, at Night he can recruit one. During the night he can talk to his Mentee in private. If the Mentor has a living Mentee, at Night he or his Mentee can kill someone. If the Mentor tries to recruit a non-townie, that non-townie is killed instead of recruited. Mentor can start the game with an already recruited Mentee. (GAME 22) UPDATED
  • Mentee (Third Party): A Mentee is a player who has been recruited by a Mentor. They can talk to the Mentor privately at Night, but will die if the Mentor dies (If the Mentee dies, that just frees up the Mentor to recruit someone else during the next Night). (GAME 22) UPDATED
  • Santa Claus (Third Party): A Third Party role, whose goal it is to successfully target 5 players in order to bring them presents. Santa Claus cannot choose one player twice. He wins the game, when he sent out all five of his presents. The presents are determind by the host at the beginning of the game. Santa knows all the presents and can give them out in any order he wishes, and he is told by the host after each action whether it was successful. (GAME 47)
  • Shapeshifter (Third Party): Each night the Shapeshifter may choose a person to hide behind. If somebody tries to kill the Shapeshifter while he is successfully hiding then the kill fails. If the Shapeshifter is hiding behind his killer or a person from the same group of his killer, his hiding is unsuccessful. If the person that the Shapeshifter is hiding behind is targeted and killed in the same night then that person and the Shapeshifter both die.
    If Shapeshifter survives the Night, his hiding wasn't blocked and his target was killable that Night (had no protection from nightkills), then his target gains the secondary role Illusion at the end of that Night, which lasts for the rest of the game. The Shapeshifter wins the game if the number of his Illusions plus himself is equal or higher than half the players alive. If the Shapeshifter dies, all of his Illusions shatter and die at once. (GAME 69)

SECONDARY ROLES:
  • Lovers (Third Party): The Lovers are secondary roles that are assigned to two players of different groups. If only one of them remains, he commits suicide on the following night. They win if their number is equal or greater than the number of townies remaining and all other non-townies are dead. They can talk in private at each Night phase. Lovers are not allowed to openly reveal names of Mafias at any point with the intention to ruin the game. (GAME 37) UPDATED
  • Threesome Candidate (Third Party): At the start of the game the Lovers are notified that there is a Threesome in the game. The Threesome Candidate can join the Lovers, if he finds out who they are. He has one guess per Day by PMing the host 2 player names. He gets back a result whether he guessed correctly 0, 1 or 2 Lovers. If he guesses the 2 Lovers correctly in the same Day, he joins them as the third Lover. His guesses do not count as actions. If both of his Lovers die, he commits suicide on the following Night, regardless if he joined them or not.
    If one of the Lovers dies before the Candidate has joined their group, he may guess on the night of the supposed suicide who the remaining living Lover is and becomes a substitute for the one who passed away, if he succeeds. (GAME 37)
  • Super Mason (Unassigned / Townie) A townie with a role at the start of the game. When he/she gets recruited by the Mason Recruiter, he/she will not lose his/her original role. (e.g. Super Mason Doctor, Super Mason Detective). When joining the Masons, this secondary role changes to Recruited Super Mason. Super Masons can start the game in the Mason Group. UPDATED
  • Sickly (Unassigned): The Sickly can choose a player each Night to infect who then can't vote in the following Day Phase, because he gets a cold. If the Sickly chooses to use their main role's active ability, the Sickly ability cannot be used on the same Night. (GAME 83)
  • Not Voter Disease (Unassigned): The infected player cannot vote. The person who has it last decides on the Night phase who gets it next. Passing on the disease counts as an action, but can be done alongside the main role's action. (GAME 37)
  • Hot Potato (Unassigned): The Hot Potato explodes at the end of a day designated by the host before the start of the game, killing the player holding it. The holder of the Hot Potato doesn't know when it will explode, but he can pass it to another player at night, separately from any night ability he has. This passing can't be blocked. If the holder gets killed, the Potato explodes killing both the holder and the killer; if the holder is lynched, the Potato [dies with him]. UPDATED
  • Temporary Role (Unassigned): Temporary Roles are Townie roles that are for one use only. If the Temporary Role has a day or night action, it disappears after the use of it. If it doesnot, it disappears automatically one day after receiving it. Detectives cannot identify Temporary Roles. (GAME 47)
  • Traitor (Mafia): The Traitor can only be assigned to a Townie role, but he can only win with his Mafia team. This secondary role lets the player know the names of all his Mafia team's members at the start of the game, and if the player is targeted by that Mafia team with a successful killing action, he gets recruited and becomes a normal Mafia Member.
  • Naive Traitor (Townie): The Naive Traitor can only be assigned to a Townie role. This secondary role lets the player get the names of random players at the start of the game and is told that's the Mafia. He is also told that he can only win with the Mafia and that he can be recruited by them. However the Mafia can't recruit him(unless his primary role allows it) and his win condition depends on his primary role. The Naive Traitor otherwise counts as a Townie for Detective investigations, as well as for Mason/Mentee recruitment.
  • Illusion (Third Party): A secondary role caused by the Shapeshifter. The player is not made aware of getting this secondary role, and can continue to write posts, vote and submit any day or night actions he has. However, his vote will be registered as usual but it won't count towards lynches, and his role will lose all its active/passive effects.
    If any day or night action is used on an Illusion, it will immediately shatter and die. Upon an Illusion's death, the host will reveal on which night the player was turned into an Illusion. (GAME 69)

NEW ROLES:
  • Avenger (Townie) The Avenger can select a player any night, but can only be done once. This selection is unblockable and untraceable by a Spy. If that player dies the enraged Avenger can target any other player who will die the next night. The Avenger submits their killing action during the phase after their selected player dies, but the kill itself only happens at night.
  • Banshee (Townie): The Banshee can target a player every night. When the Banshee dies, during the following phase, they can select one of the players they targeted. The selected player dies at the end of the phase. This kill cannot be prevented (hidden/blocked/protected) in any way. The Banshee can choose not to kill.
  • Police Officer (Townie): Each Day Phase the Police Officer can pick 3 people to protect from day killing actions. If one of them got targeted by such, the kill fails and the Police Officer loses one of these protections (he's notified accordingly at the end of the day phase), leaving him with one less for following day phases. The Police Officer must send all his picks at once and he's not allowed to change these during the day.
  • Psychiatrist (Townie): The Psychiatrist investigates one person per night phase to see if the player has a Secondary Role. They get a "Your target has a secondary role" if that is the case, and a "Your target does not have a secondary role" if it's not. The Psychiatrist does not find out the allegiance of the target.
  • Troublemaker (Townie): Can once per game message the host during the Night phase to make the next Day phase lynch be the top 2 voted people instead of regular 1 top voted person. Every player has 2 votes but cannot vote the same player twice. The Host announces this event at the start of the Day.
  • Mafia Doctor (Mafia) The Mafia Doctor can protect another Mafia Member per night phase i.e. he will PM the host during the night phase and can request to protect a player. That player then cannot die during the night phase.
  • Mafia Noble (Mafia): The Mafia Noble is able to cast an extra vote in secret through PM to the Host. One "anonymous vote" will be added to the chosen person.
  • Mafia Robber (Mafia) Day Action - If the Robber has killed somebody successfully in the previous night he can use the stolen vote of his victim in the day besides his own. The vote of the victim can only be given as a locked vote. He cannot collect more than one robbed vote. The anonymous vote can be placed on anyone, no restrictions.
  • Substitute Teacher (Third Party) The Substitute Teacher can only win with third party Mentor/Mentee. He has one guess per day to guess who the Mentor is. If he guesses correctly he joins the Mentor/Mentee group. If the Mentor dies at any point after the Substitute Teacher joined his group, the Substitute Teacher changes his role into Mentor. If both Mentor and Mentee die before he joins them he commits suicide the following night.

ROLE CEMETERY:

Bar Keeper
(Townie): The Bar Keeper can invite 3 players to his bar every night. One random player of the chosen batch ends up being the drunkest and either reveals his role to the Bar Keeper, fails to perform his night action or uses it on a random player. The Bar Keeper doesn't get to know the identity of the drunkest visitor, but he knows which of the 3 effects affected him.

Hypnotist (Townie): Every night, the Hypnotist can change the target of another player to a target of his choice.

Martyr (Townie): The Martyr can PM the host during a Day phase to secretly mark a player. If the marked player would die during the day or get lynched, the Martyr will sacrifice himself and dies/is lynched instead. He can PM the host as often as he wants, moving the mark onto someone else, and the last person that has the mark when a daykill happens or the day ends counts. This role cannot be claimed.

Politician (Townie): The Politician can secretly make a player of his choice vote to his liking. The Politician PMs the Host during the day with the name of the player whose vote he wants to corrupt. The chosen player getting the PM from the Host with the name he must vote for, cannot associate himself with the Politician. If he slips up he gets three Penality Votes on himself. The role of the Politician cannot be claimed.

Time Bomb (Townie): The host decides before the game starts which Night phase the Time Bomb will explode, of which the player is informed. The night it shall explode, it can target any other player and blow him up. If the Time Bomb is killed before the time limit is passed it does not explode.

Witch (Townie): If the Witch is lynched she may curse another player, who then will die the second night after.

Mafia Politician (Mafia): Once per Day, the Mafia Politician can steal a player's vote and place it on a target of his choosing. He PMs the Host during the Day with the name of the player whose vote he wants to steal and the new target, and the Host will publicly place the former's vote on the latter. The stolen vote follows all voting rules as if manually cast - it only gets locked if the Mafia Politician's target had already voted once, it cannot be stolen from a target who had already votelocked, and so on.

Unlimited Voter Disease (Unassigned): The infected player can change his votes unlimited times. Which means he cannot lock his vote. The one that has it last decides on the Night phase who gets it next. Passing on the disease counts as an action, but can be done alongside the main role's action.

On the other hand, Panda pointed out a small flaw himself in the rules when it comes to penalties -as a lot of them are mostly based on the Host's perception of how penalties can affect the game. After hosting myself and co-hosting with you, with my own experience, I'd like to change the following so it's more precise:

The parts that I underlined could be changed. I'd like to have defined in the rules a 3 strikes system -seen first in the Naruto game you hosted IIRC?- in game as we do outside of it in the Hall of Shame. The first time you break a ¨minor¨ rule -a major one would be posting a PM, for example- you get a penalty vote. If you break one of those rules once again, you receive 3 penalties. If you break rules for the third time, you get hostkilled.

I also think that in these times -cause I'm not playing I guess '-'''' -the 100 posts rule is redundant, and could be either deleted or modified to an even smaller number -just in case WithinSpam becomes the new me.
I would suggest as PM-reveal stuff is usually more serious raising the punishment to hostkill instantly. In this case right now it seems you have to reveal three PMs to be hostkilled, way too many.

Also, perhaps splitting up the phargraphs about posting three times and voting at least once. with that being absent giving the respective penalties individually

ACTIVITY RULES
  • Be active in every day phase and post at least three times. If you don't do that, you will be hostkilled and banned from future games (Hall of Shame). If you are going to miss out a period of time due to real life events make sure to inform the host, who is going to judge each situation individually and decide whether or not taking the player out of the game is necessary.
  • Place at least one vote every day phase. If you forget to place a vote you will get a Penality Vote on the next day phase.
  • Don't post more than 100 times per day phase. This is to reduce spam and the volume of posts per game. Nobody has time to go through hundreds of one liner posts with the same content over and over again (Imperium Copyright Rule). If you hit the volume restriction, you will get a Penality Vote per 10 additional posts you make.
  • Dead people can't talk. So don't post once your character is dead; do not help others once you are dead. You can however, lurk the thread. If you post regardlessly, you will be banned from future games (Hall of Shame).

I agree though, in my example showing PMs was something major ^^' -not something minor like posting only twice or forgetting to vote.

Edit: trying to make what I said a bit clearer:

-If you break a rule -like posting a PM-, you'd get insta hostkilled.

-If you forget to vote or to fulfill the quantity of posts required during a day-phase, you'd get a penalty vote. If you break one of these rules once again -or at the same time- you would get 3 penalty votes. If you were to break those rules a third and last time, it would result in a hostkill.

Do we have a better solution to tie breakings? It appears the locked-votes system was criticized and discarded in the current game.
Idk I really like the locked-votes system. I don't have a better solution for it, but instead I would suggest remarking it in the rules so that it's not so easily missed -it's at the very bottom of it's own section, even if it's a very important rule. Maybe modifying the first sections -adding important rules like that one- of the rules would do the trick.

I agree with hardy, people not posting/voting shouldn't be an instant hostkill. 2-3 times in a row means that the player doesn't intend to play and can be hostkilled.

Posting pms should be instant hostkill, but then you should also instantly hostkill mafias that fake host pms.

About ties, I don't agree that locked votes should count the first time the lock happens, since many locks are most commonly people who change their vote. Especially if a politician forces a lock this way he would screw over ties.
They should matter at the end of overtime instead.

Tie votes should result in a single extension of the phase, then a majority of locked votes can determine who gets lynched. If the tie still isn't broken, both die.

I don't like the idea that people can't use a tie as a strategic choice, but I don't think it should be allowed to happen more than once. Simply eliminating someone right off the bat because people happened to use their second vote on them compared to someone else feels a bit arbitrary, especially when people post/vote and go, different timezones, etc.

Politician needs to be revisited in general IMO

The problem is that after a tie, usually, the day is prolonged for 1 more hour, and many people lose a part of their¨value¨ in their vote, as every vote gets unlocked during the extra time -we can't expect every player to be around at every single moment of the game.

If we only count locked votes after the tie, that would mean that their votes never had that ¨value¨ in the first place, and that would give some players an advantage just for being luckier with their timezones -even bigger than the one they would already have.

Also, I had like to add that there should be more clarification about changing your target during the Day/Night phase. Because in one of the games I played in (I think I was Hider) I could change my target to another one since I prefer to hide behind someone else instead and was allowed to change my target, however, in the lastest game(s), g01 for example (when he was the prostitute) said that he wanted to target Holt instead of me, but was not allowed to change his target since he already sent his PM to the Host while the Night Phase was still going on.

Gotta say, even that made me confused since I was allowed to change my target during the Night Phase in the game I have played in but he was not. Seems kinda unfair/confusing that some Host(s) allow(s) people to change their target(s), but other host(s) do not. I think this should be kinda clarified as well, imo.

My problem with the extra time for vote breaking is this:

All players expect the phase to be e.g. 24h, are aware of it and manage their time accordingly. Only a handful though will know about the extra time, namely those that were present at the end. It is an unfair advantage, and easily exploited with malicious intents.

From a practical perspective as a host the additional time is a nightmare. It completely disrupts the schedule not only for this one phase but for the rest of the game. Usually when dedicating your time to host a game, you sort of plan it according to your own time patterns, otherwise it's not possible at all, and those are then completely disrupted, when players force ties.

Sigh you love to summon people...

I REALLY don't see the problem with the rule the way it is. If people have the same amount of votes, you use the locked ones as a criteria. I really think that ties should happen as eventual things, and changing that will favor ties to happen way more often, 'cause they'll be easier to manipulate. The consequences will be frequent phase extensions (and game extensions), with people having to reschedule their things more often... I mean, yday people didn't wanna go to sleep 'cause they wanted to see the end of it and I had plans I ended up cancelling xD. Then, if we have normal votes and locked votes tied, I agree with need a standard on how to proceed. I think that giving an extra hour and killing all the tied ones if things aren't solved by the end would be the best option.

Yes it's not ideal in any case, both when they're counted higher than normal votes and when they're not.

Ah and I think you misunderstood. We're not "only" counting locked votes in overtime, but normal votes too. the point of overtime is resolving the tie. It's rare that 2 are let to die, so people will eventually have 1 guy with most votes on him. Only when even after overtime it's still a tie should we count locked votes as more important.

Or we never count locked votes as anything special. They're primarily in the game so people are limited with their votes. A vote being locked could also mean just that: you can't change it anymore. Nothing more.

But even with locked votes counting we can have cases where both tied players have the same number of locked votes too..

..so maybe just make it that ties never prolong the day phase, but instantly kill both tied players? Let's be honest, most people don't care about resolving ties right away because "it's just getting extended". Some ties happen many hours before the game ends but people don't care too much about it because the worst that happens is a longer day.

I mean, if you're okay with the sole determining factor on who's getting lynched being whether someone voted for someone already and voted again, fine. Because many times, the action of votelocking isn't being used in order to force the phase to end immediately, it just happens as a consequence of people placing something as simple as a placeholder vote and then voting for a reason later.

I understand the practical nightmare it presents for people involved, but idk...

I fully agree with this. It was also why I let the game go in over time. There were enough people online at the time too. And the tie was resolved in the end as well. It's rare that people leave directly after the end of the day phase if they're around, as far as I can tell.

But this extra hour is only given to a handful people who stayed till the end or perhaps forced it to extend. Or as @TSPanda said enough people.

But do you consider it fair favouring only those people by giving them an extra vote and stripping everyone else from that opportunity? And what is deemed as enough people to break a tie anyways.

Ties are broken with majorities. So enough people is 50%+
I do see ties as a part of strategies. In theory, anyone has the opportunity to join a tie break extra hour and use his extra vote.
And my whole opinion about it was that keeping the first part the way prevents ties from happening in the first place. They will, but no often. It wouldn't have now.
If you completely remove the extra hour tiebreak you'll need another mechanism to help people preventing that the mafia will get 3 townies tied and dead in the 'normal' time, for example.

Well, this is basically the issue. The locked votes in the initial phase prior to the end aren't really consequences of people legitimately making their final decisions. It's the arbitrary initial votes often playing a role to change the locked votes.

I think the "You can do anything you want" system that allows other people to be pulled into the situation needs to go, and the remaining players will need to take a vote between the tied players. And half of the entire player population should be a benchmark. i.e If there are 20 players, there needs to be at least 10 votes in the extension phase to decide who is going to die. If there are more votes than half of the population within one hour, they count, as well.
That on its own does not account to people who are not actively following the phase end, but there isn't much to be done about that either way.
