In order to keep track of Missions, I suggest each of you keep a google document of your own listing your missions. Whenever you complete a series of missions (preferably more than one in order not to clog up inbox space), PM Johann and I.
Alliance Creation FAQ:
Q: Do I have to form an alliance out of all the letters and words in my Role PM in order to win?
A: No. Those are your Closed Missions. You could do so though if you are lucky enough. Also: you can only make words from the ones listed in your closed missions. You can't "invent" alliances using your letters in order to gain experience, though you could make them of your own accord if you just want to be together.
Q: So if I am part of an alliance, can I join another alliance if I have the letter needed to do so?
A: Yes. Example: Johann and I wanted to make an alliance known as "Ac", however we were already in an alliance known as "Ok". This is possible. I could reuse the letter "A" if I wanted to too for another alliance if it needed to happen.
Q: So could I make the same word with another group of people even if that word has already been used?
Q: Can I be allied with my enemy?
A: In theory, yes. But enemies are higher priority, so obviously your enemy's death is in your best interest, even if he is allied with you.
Q: What happens when you form an alliance? For that matter, how do I form one? Does each person just pm you and Johann with the word being spelled?
A: Well each of you gain experience first of all (but it is applied at the end of the cycle, so you won't be able to take advantage of it right away). Second, you form an alliance by confirming it together via IRC or Smogon PMs. In order to notify me and Johann that you completed an alliance, please let us know via IRC or Smogon PM. Make sure that each of you pm us via IRC, but when pming via Smogon, please quote each player's confirmation of the creation of the alliance in a single PM.
Q: Are enemies mutual?
A: I cannot confirm or deny this statement. (lol)
Q: For alliances to actually work, we need to actually plan together, right?
A: Yes. Obviously the best way for me to know that you are doing so is if you have a shared secret spreadsheet or secret channel. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
. Johann's is: email@example.com
. Please use these only for the purpose of this mafia game, thank you.
Q: So in essence, alliances are only useful for exp, right?
A: Yes and no. Yes because if you plan on just getting exp from it, well that's your take on the mission. However, this mission is meant for you to start working/talking together. So alliances can potentially be extremely useful.
