I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND ALL PLAYERS THAT QUOTING OR SCREENSHOTTING PMS BETWEEN ME AND YOU REGARDING THIS GAME IS NOT ALLOWED. IMPORTANT RULE: Please remember that nothing that happens in this game is a personal attack against you. By playing mafia, you will likely be called a liar, and will be targeted by other players for a variety of reasons. Please recognize that none of these players want to offend you, and if you cannot understand that you will be heatedly questioned and looked at by other players, mafia might not be the game for you.Welcome Hypixelers to this forum's first ever game of Mafia! Mafia is unlike any other forum game you’ve likely ever played before, and is a fun and intense game of deception, tricks, and lying. If this sounds like your kind of game, read on! ALL ROLES WERE DECIDED WITH A RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR. Please don't get mad if you got a role you didn't want. I hope you all are as excited as I am to get going! Let the killing commence! What Is Mafia? To put very simply, Mafia is a game of lying, deception, subterfuge, and trickery. Every player will need to be ready to lie, extort other players, and do whatever is necessary (within the rules!) to stay alive and win the game. To elaborate, the game is divided into two teams: the town and mafia. Mafia know who each other are and can coordinate their actions privately. The goal of the mafia is to kill the town until they have the majority, while the Town needs to figure out who the Mafia is, and kill them. Townies on the other hand don't know anything other than their own role. To compensate, there are many more townies than mafia; usually the ratio is 1 mafia for every 3 townies. In other words, Mafia is a game of an informed minority against an uninformed majority. Can the mafia use its superior organization and knowledge to lead the town astray? Or can the town figure out the mafia and kill them before their numbers advantage runs out? That, my friends, is the question that will be answered over the course of this game. At the beginning of the game you will be PM’ed your role by me. This PM will have any specifics about your role, and it is here you may ask me any questions about your role. It’s important that you don’t share your role with everyone else though! The game is divided into two repeating phases: day and night. Day will last for approximately 72 hours and will revolve around deciding a lynch target by means of voting. Each player will discuss their suspicions, and try to decide who they can trust, during this day phase. Every player in the game gets one vote, and each player must argue and convince the other players to lynch their target. At the end of the day the person with the most votes is lynched; their alignment and role are revealed and they are removed from the game. The majority of the action in the game takes place during the day phase. Night is 48 hours long and is reserved for private actions. Any player in the game that has an ability (such as mafia kills, detective checks, medic protections, etc.) can use their power in this phase. Usually during the night everyone discusses the results of the lynch and makes plans for the next day. It serves as downtime from the emotionally charged days. After the night ends, a day post comes up with the results of who dies. After the day post, the discussion for lynch begins anew. Once there is a winner, everyone can talk freely about the game, and I will be handing out some virtual bragging-rights awards :3 What Are The Rules? The number one most important thing about Mafia is to remain active. If you cannot post at least 3 times in this game over the next 2-3 weeks, do not sign up! It is imperative that only people who are able to remain active play, as Mafia gets very boring if everyone is inactive. Besides this, it is important that: ~All players remain respectful to each other. Mafia can get very heated at times, but it is important that players remember that this is a game. Any personal attacks of any kind will not be tolerated. ~Players do not talk about Mafia outside of the Mafia thread. This means no PM’ing each other to make alliances or discuss the game. All posts about Mafia must remain within threads I state are to be used for the game. Players found to be secretly communicating will be immediately banned from the game. ~If you won’t be able to post on a specific day or two, just let me know by sending me a PM. I can make special arrangements for you. ~You may NOT edit any of your posts, even if you make a big mistake. Period. If you have something else to say, put it in a separate post. ~When voting to lynch a player, use the tag [VOTE] *Player Name* [/VOTE]. Any votes not in this format will not be counted. To unvote a player, use [VOTE] *Player Name* [/UNVOTE]. ~If you go inactive without letting me know for 2 whole day phases, you will be modkilled from the game. ~All roles will be randomly chosen using a number generator. If you get a role you don't like, blame RNGesus. ~All forum rules apply here (duh). ~If you ever have any questions, shoot me a PM. I’ll reply back to you as soon as I can (I do have school and extracurriculars, but expect a response within 12 hours). To try and prevent players from signing up and disappearing, I am requiring that any member who wishes to sign up has at least 25 posts on the forums. I think this is a relatively fair number, and prevents players from ditching the game and disappearing. How Can I Sign Up? Just post in this thread, and I’ll put you on the list of players! It is a first come, first serve basis, and Mafia does have a limited number of spots. Player List: I will be allowing an unlimited number of players into this game. 1) RainbowAndV 2) Cjl1agent 3) CyborPanda 4) SLIMEIFY 5) freeport_aidan 6) proxboxer 7) XCVigilance 8) Maya_Fey 9) Pilzkopf777 10) sykese 11) AceOfGrace 12) Kingtopia 13) Canadian Air Force (Zecromancer) 14) dwlee99 15) Natias180 16) Jorge1025 17) Maphia_Ace Any Other Questions? Just let me know by sending me a PM or posting in this thread! Mafia is complicated, but is very fun and intense once it gets going.
