FRC Mafia 1st Invitational Sign Ups

As the 6 month anniversary of modern CD approaches us, its time for a battle of the best. 17 of CD’s finest will be facing off on July 1st to claim the title of the best mafia player on CD. This game will serve as a testament to what CD has to offer, and as a model game for others to follow!

FRC Mafia 1st Invitational

is now getting started!

We have chosen 10 of our best players to invite to play here. The renaming 7 will be chosen by community nomination! Here, you can nominate your top 3 nominees, and the 7 players with the most votes will be added to the game. Nominations will close and final invites will be sent 2019-06-29T19:00:00Z. We encourage you to nominate the plyaers that best display skill, devotion, and a high activity level.

Your mod for this first Invitational will be @EricKline and our congressional oversight mod being the legendary @orangeandblack5. He has the right to appoint new mods, or end of the game, should I become incapable. He also ensures all rules are being followed.

For this game we will be running a custom game mode I’ve made up just for this very special game. Welcome to the "Cupid Shuffle!"
Rules

  1. Follow the Chief Delphi forum rules.
  2. Be respectful to the hosts and your fellow players.
  3. Don’t be inactive. If you do not post meaningfully in any given phase, you will be prodded. Receiving two prods or failing to respond to a prod within 12 hours will result in your removal from the game. This will be a special point of emphasis this game.
  4. Dead will not be added to scum chat, or cupid chat. Dead will not talk in game for any reason, or face a mod kill. Role lists will be distributed through PM only
  5. Dead will not interact with any in game polls, nor will they like posts!
  6. Do not quote/screenshot private host messages. They’re private for a reason.
  7. Don’t throw the game. Always play with the intent of helping your faction win.
  8. No editing or deleting posts for any reason without express moderator permission.
  9. No posting after majority is reached or at night. I can’t lock the thread, so I’m relying on you all to just follow this rule and not post. Repeated or egregious failure to comply will result in your removal from the game.
  10. Do not discuss the game outside of the game. Anywhere. It’s not worth it.
  11. It’s a game - have fun!

Gameplay

  • Days will be 72 hours long
  • Nights will be 24 hours long
  • Mafia will get a factional night kill. Any living player can carry out the kill.
  • The Cupid is a third party player, who can win regardless of scum or town win.
  • The Cupid will select any 2 players (“lovers”) during night one, who will be put in a private chat with each other, but not the Cupid. Neither of them will know the other’s alignment or role, nor will they know who the Cupid is.
  • Should the Cupid, or either of the lovers die via elimination or night kill, all 3 of the players will die.
  • If all 3 players survive until day 3, the Cupid wins the game. At which point, the lovers will lose their PM chat, the Cupid leaves the game, and the game will continue regular play until town or scum win.

Eliminations

  • To accuse someone, say “ /vote [player] ”.
  • To rescind your vote, say “ /unvote ”.
  • Making your votes obvious (bolded, on their own line, etc.) will make it less likely to be missed by us.
  • Vote counts will be given whenever a host is available to do so. You may request one by pinging me. No vote counts will be given by the dead!
  • Days 1-3 will have a deadline elimination - whoever has the most votes when the 72 hour timer expires will be eliminated.
  • Days 4 and on will have a plurality elimination - if majority is reached on a player, the day will end immediately with their elimination, but if majority isn’t reached whoever has the most votes when the timer expires will be eliminated.
  • If majority has been reached, stop posting immediately. Repeated or egregious failure to comply will result in a modkill.

F.A.Q.

  • What is Forum Mafia?
    In case you missed the link at the top, here is a short guide from Mafia Universe describing the basics of Forum Mafia. In short, it is a variation of the party game Mafia (also known as Werewolf) that has been adapted to be played on forums.
  • What does _______ mean?
    There is a great glossary of various Mafia terms that may be used on the Mafia Universe Wiki 2 .
  • I’m still confused.
    Feel free to ask me any and all questions you may have!

Final notes:

The game thread will open promptly at 2019-07-01T15:00:00Z. Role cards will be sent out in the 24 hours prior. You must role confirm in the first 12 hours in the game chat.

The theme will be a 70’s match making game show

Sorry, I don’t think I can play this time. Maybe later.

Even though the day period is 3 days long?

During July I’m leaving for a week to camp, and I’ll be doing other stuff to and probably working. I really do want to play. I might be able to be a backup later.

I’m not sure I would…
I’m probably gonna be hard to contact for most of next week, but I’ll be checking in.
@EricKline can I get a lower post limit for that time?
Also I may miss the first 12 hour confirm thing, I’m out of town but I’ll be able to check in in the first 2 days…

I suppose. But make sure you are checking in as much as possible, providing reads, and commentary.

I’m gonna be taking driver’s ed in the morning beginning July 29th in the morning on Mondays through Thursdays, plus I will be busy until 4 on the week of the 15th. I will be able to read and do flip phone analysis (i.e. this post length analysis) during those times, so I should be fine.

I will be working on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8AM-12PM beast coast time, but should be around after that. Activity shouldn’t be an issue from me.
