____________________________________________________________

Local game rules:

1. 33% (rounded up) of the votes # are required for a deadline lynch (@ end of the day).
2. 50% (rounded up or +1) of the votes required for instant death or no lynch (ends the day!).
3. Role declarations are possible only after receiving 1/2 of the deadline required votes.
 - A role claim is defined by posting either one of: 1) role name; 2) role skills; 3) or both.
 - Posting information that your role obtains is free and NOT SUBJECTED TO THIS RULE.
4. Use F1 Name for voting, F2 Name for unvoting, F3 for ending the day with no lynch.
5. In case of vote ties, insufficient deadline votes, or F3's majority, nobody will get lynched.
6. Game days last 5 normal days, game nights last 2 days. Starting hour: ~21.00 GMT.
7. The night results are returned at the end of the night and apply to the next day.

Generic rules:

1. It's forbidden to quote (or pretend to), in any extent, e-mails from the mod or other players.
2. Do not talk to anybody whatsoever about the game, OUTSIDE the game topic.
3. Dead men don't speak! If you're dead, don't say anything, however harmless it may seem.
4. If you don't post for about 10 days, you're in danger of being eliminated or replaced.
5. If you have any concerns regarding the game, talk to the mod, or wait until the game is over.
6. Use red color only to vote and unvote players during the game. vote: INTERNET STRANGER
7. Only mafia members and players chosen by the mod are able to communicate during the night.
8. Obscene language, cloning and using external resources will be followed by heavy punishment.
9. Please try and remember to put "MAFIA" word in the subject line of every e-mail message.
10. Always check your inbox in the "morning". There may be info or mandatory actions waiting.
11. When trying to come up with believable roles, remember: Savage is only a theme, not a bible.
12. In case of a perpetual state of balance (3 days w/o lynch + 3 nights w/o deaths), everybody loses.
13. When you e-mail your targets, use this template: your name, your role, the action, your target.
--Example: Daemon, village idiot, bitch-slaps Beard. (This greatly helps me to avoid mistakes!)

PLEASE, PLEASE read them at least once! Have Fun! GL! GG! LOL! ASL PLS!

Power corrupts. Vanity eats your soul. Fair play has been replaced by a desire to win at any cost. We know this all too well just look at Maliken! Consumed by the thought that all of his years of hard work might have been for nothing, as his beloved Savage XR game looks like it was all but overtook by despicable gamers, Django slowly loses touch with reality. He spends all his money for setting up an only-seen-in-movies operation. Through means of cunning and deceit or brute force when required, he manages to bring together, in the same room, a bunch of hand-picked gamers from around the world. They've all been drugged and transported into a location packed with state of the art computers. As they begin to wake up, they find themselves strapped to comfortable yet rock solid chairs, each facing a huge monitor connected to top-of-the-line hardware, running... Savage XR! 20 chairs. 20 machines. 20 people. And Django. And his AK47. Behind them.

DJ's deep voice breaks the silence.

"This is Savage's last stand. You have been brought here to prove a point: that fair-play is still alive! There is too much selfishness in this world, and too many players trying to gain unfair advantages with scripts and mods and whatnot. This is your chance to settle the argument: clean gaming vs. lame gaming. However, there is lame and then there is wtf lame... So will you root out the evil in your midst, or will you just roll down and die, unable to overcome petty hatred and squabbling, preventing you from working together to rid Savage of its curse?

Whether you like to play the game or just ruin the game for everyone else, whether you like the warm-up mayhem or you just enjoy idle speccing, you're in for the game of a lifetime: this time, everything is for real. If you die or get kicked ingame, you die IRL as well, so i'm sure some of you won't be playing cleanly. But this time you're allowed to, you're playing for your lives. Still, using your hax face to face and not from your comfy chairs, safe in your little houses, continents away, doesn't seem quite the same, does it?"

"W00t R U on about? WTF, you're crazy, man, let us go, we are not what you think we are!!11!"

"Don't worry, i know what you are. You know what you are. But they, the merry bunch of unaware players, do not. You can use that to your advantage, so you're safe. Or... are you? Enough talk. Round 1: eden2. This time, let's skip the warm-up. Play. Die. Win. Go."

____________________

In this game, warm-up periods represent nights, and the actual game rounds represent the days. During the warm-ups, players will employ their special powers, also called NTA (night-time ability), and selected players are allowed to strategize. During the game rounds, as per each Mafia game, the players will be allowed to post, vote and lynch people. Every existing rule stands. I'll remind you the most important three: 1. never quote or pretend to quote moderator's emails; 2. never talk to anybody outside the game; 3. only communicate with whom and when you're allowed to. Inactive players will be moved to spec before being kicked. Being returned to the game will not be without consequences in terms of retaining the integrity of their NTA's.

RESERVED for "Tips of the day" compilation.

The NO E-MAIL QUOTING Rule:

The purpose of the "no quoting" rule is to maintain equality of chances. Say you're in for a lynch and the only way to prove that you are indeed a townie cop and not a mafia killer is by just copy/pasting the email from the moderator saying "You are a cop. You can investigate corrupt members of your community". That would be instantly recognized by people having received similar roles with similar format. And not only the general look of the quote, which may or may not be simply invented, but the fact that certain words like "corrupt" or "community" are used, in certain phrase constructions, can give away the fact that you did quote the mod and you are who you say you are.

Why is that bad? Because Mafia members, or bad guys in general, do not have that luxury. If they would quote their role it would be that of a bad guy. They have no idea how the Townie roles are structured in the first place, so even attempting to reconstruct a role like that and pretending it's a true quote, leaves them at a disadvantage. So the solution is simple: do not quote, but rephrase! Write in your own words everything. The above sentence may be rephrased like this: "My role is that of a cop, that tries to catch townies that have been bought by the mafia." And yes, role names and results of investigations (like "cop", "doctor", or "John visited Mary last night", "Mike is a criminal") are the exception to this rule, but still, if and only if they're not presented as quotes, but rephrased results. Once you do it right, nobody pays attention to it anymore. Quoting emails will get you kicked, tho.
__________________

About NTA Priority:

I can understand how that confuses you. In Mafia, there is no real time flow, or liniarity. Everything happens simultaneously and in such a way that everyone's role can work. For instance, it's obvious that if you're dead you can't shoot someone else, but in Mafia, John can shoot Mary and Mary can stab the dog and the dog can bite John, all in the same night. Because there's no way to say which did it first, and no point. Equally, even if Mary is high up in a tower and John has to, like, take the elevator to be able to get to her and shoot her, and the dog obviously can't, everything still happens. Unless there are roles blocking other roles' abilities, the only ones that have 'priority'. I hope that make sense to new people!

As DJ's insane speech ended, everybody was just left sharing glances in dismay. Before long, DJ's autistic walking up and down the room, random rifle swinging and sudden manic laughter reprises convinced them that this shit was for real. So they've all turned their attention towards the game once again, and before long, the game started to look like Feather's cup finals: everyone was farming monkits and building towers. When about a zillion of those were made, they just went back into spawn points, hoping for the round to end uneventfully, as they were feeling pretty confident that none of them would dare risk leaving the safety of their tower-spammed bases. For god's sake, this madness was bound to end sometime...

Well, DJ was not happy. He had hoped for a proper game to take place, where dirty gamers would do their thing and everyone would see for who they really were and so on and so forth and... THE END! But no. They liked turtling better. I mean, not such a big surprise there, but still. Then he lost it again and gave way to a new outburst:

"Oh yeah you think you can just throw the game and everything will just return to normal, and you will go back to your petty lives of too much beer and too few women... OH, NO! You got until the round ends to figure out what you're going to do to fulfill your purpose here. Beginning next round, during warm-ups, re-entering spawn points will be prevented by new server settings. You WILL duke it out, whether you want to or not!"


Okay, that sounded equally scary. Players began to realize there's really no way out of this one, except actually doing some... cleaning up. So after a good while of shouting, name calling, excuses for bad English and some nazi icon spam, they've come up with a good idea: they would use the game rounds to stay inside and discuss about who should be gotten rid of in order to make the game clean, calling kick votes on people they got their eyes on. And during warm-ups, well... then it's every man for himself.

But some of them did not seem to agree with this plan. Although not too vocal, trying not to draw attention on themselves, apparently, they had their own approach towards solving this riddle. And this is how the story unfolds:


GAME BEGINS NOW!

It's ROUND 1 - ends March 20th, 21:00 GMT. There are 20 players remaining. Votes needed: deadline lynch - 7; instant lynch or no lynch - 11; role declarations - 4.

Tip of the day: Always unvote before voting for someone else (F2'ing your F1's or F3's). I have no way of knowing you haven't already voted F1 or F3 so double votes could happen and mess the count. Thank you!

Ah, DJ and his pranks, you never know what he'll think of next. Just wanted to start of by saying hey everyone, it's been a while.

Nobody, you don't need to vote F2 unless you've already cast a F1 vote for someone and want to cancel it.

It's a F3 from me for the time being.

Madness, I don't like to play under pressure, evil DJ! About lynching someone, I am unsure. Let's see the game has just started, we still have some days Smiley

Wait, what?

But KraiSe, there is a problem with lynching a random player. If we estimate the mafia to be about the third of the players, and we lynch a completely random player, we have a 33% chance of lynching someone in the mafia, and a 67% chance of lynching someone innocent. But who's going to pick that random player? You? Isn't it in the mafia's interest to pick off someone "random"?
