GTF Mafia XXIX: Back to Basics

Image


Alllllllrighty folks! It's been awhile since GTF has run a mafia game, and we used to have such an extremely active base of players! I remember when games were back to back with no break and I'm feeling some nostalgia for the old times.... given that most of our old hosts have moved on, I will once again take up the mantle as host for a simple game to get us back into the swing of things!

Overwatch was an extremely ambitious game last summer, and the replacements were kind of hectic. Therefore, I'm not running a predetermined setup, and I will instead build the game around how many people sign up and what the interest is for roles and such.

If you've never played before, don't fear! This signup page will explain all the rules and there are PLENTY of old games to read in the GTF Mafia - Game Directory link in my signature.

Due to its current prevalence, the mafia chat for this will be run out of Discord, so if you plan to sign up, be sure to get yourself into the GTF Discord server so that I can invite you to the mafia chat once we're up and running!

---------------------------------------------------------------------


General Idea
A number of players are thrown into a situation where you don't know who to trust. There are two teams: the Civilians and the Mafia. In addition, some players can be Third Party and have their own win conditions.

There are two phases: Day and Night. During Day, all players deliberate and submit a vote on a player. The player with the most votes is lynched and eliminated from the game. During Night, the mafia deliberate to kill and eliminate a player from the game. The civilians win the game once all mafia have been eliminated. The mafia win the game once their numbers are equal to or greater than the number of civilians.

Game Size
At least 13 Players.
10 Civilians
3 Mafia

OR

9 Civilians
3 Mafia
1 Third Party

Based on interest level, this game is more than welcome to expand to more players if more people sign up. I can build it however large we like.

Roles
This will be a closed setup with basic roles, so expect a cop (investigates players at night) and a medic (protects a player from death at night) with maybe all vanilla mafia, not sure if there will be any scum roles yet based on game size.

Phases
One whole cycle (Day and Night) will amount to 48 hours. The Day phase will last 36 hours, starting from 11:00 AM EST and ending at 11:00 PM EST the following day. The Night phase will last 12 hours, starting from 11:00 PM EST and ending at 11:00 AM EST the following morning.

Posting is allowed during all phases.

Voting
Votes must be submitted in the thread using the following format: Lynch Player. Bold, Underline and red so I can see it. No Lynch is a valid voting option. Votes may be changed as many times as you want - the last submitted vote is what will be counted. Votes for the Day phase will not be accepted after deadline.

In case of a tie, there will be a No Lynch result. I've decided to bring it back to the old way instead of randomizing the lynch, thus opening up opportunities for the mafia team to force ties, feign ignorance and just some overall mischief.

Elimination
Once you have been lynched or killed, your allegiance and role will be revealed. You may no longer post in the game thread, nor are you allowed to coach any remaining players.

Disqualification & Rules
  • All players must post five (5) posts of substance in the game thread during each Day phase. All those who do not will be warned or disqualified and replaced with substitutes. "Posts of substance" refers to posts that contribute to the group discussion or provide ideas, insight or evidence. One-liners and "fluff" posts will not be counted toward this total.
  • Missing a vote will result in a warning. Missing a second vote will DQ you from the game. These missed votes no longer need to be consecutive. Miss two and you're done. Sporadic inactivity is just as bad as constant inactivity. There is no reason a placeholder vote cannot be placed early, or a no lynch vote to be changed later.
  • Editing a post will result in a warning. Editing a second post will DQ you from the game.
  • Do not PM anyone playing the game about the game. If I find out, it will result in an automatic DQ.
  • Do not post any screenshots or direct quotes of PMs I send you. That will result in an automatic DQ.
  • If for some extenuating circumstance you need to leave the game, talk to me about it and we will try to sub someone in for you. If you do not have time to dedicate to the game, please do not sign up.
  • Harassment of another player in any form outside the context of the game thread will result in an immediate modkill. This is a zero tolerance policy.
  • Threats of leaving the game or disqualification, as well as encouraging other players to forfeit or concede, will not be permitted. You may be warned, but I reserve the right to DQ at my discretion.

Starting Date
This game is estimated to begin around Wednesday, November 8th.

Ah GTF mafia was the best, the level of freak outs and tantrums we would throw.

I'm super busy with school and I'm in another game right now so I don't know how active I'll be but I'll give it a shot.

:P most of it did seem to hinge around the fact that some of us need our beauty sleep and refuse to participate in ungodly hours such as 21:00.

Come on, let's fill 5 more slots!

Would also appreciate a substitute or two if you don't think you'll be able to start right away or do the whole game from the beginning, if I have any DQs that'll be super good to have in reserve. :keke:
