    Welcome to Snack Food Mafia, hosted by Altair and askaninjask.

    It was a normal morning in the pantry. Dark, room temperature, and no sign of ants. The snack foods were preparing for a fun day of being eaten, looking at each other slightly nervously, know that they could be sleeping with the stomach acid within seconds.

    Suddenly, a tired, drowsy, figure, let’s call him askaninjask, lumbered into the pantry. He scratched away the tiredness from his eyes and looked around. He then began randomly grabbing for food to satisfy his hunger. He took a bag of pistachios and walked off.

    The snack foods began to quiver in terror, knowing that their time could be near. However, they were soon distracted by a dashing, young twinkie, or should we say Altair, who stepped up on a discarded popcorn bag and began to speak.

    “Well, it seems like we’re in a predicament here. However, I think there is a nice democratic solution to this. Every 5 minutes, when askaninjask comes back for more, we will vote for someone to be pushed up as a sacrifice to him. This can continue until his hunger is sat-”

    The snacks watched in horror as Altair was picked up by aska, dragged over to the table, and eaten in one swift gulp. Only a note was left behind....


    In general, the snacks agreed that Altair’s proposal was the best way to go about this. Immediately, alliances sprang up, the six major ones being the Chips, Pop tarts, Meat, Cookies, Cheesy Snacks, and Pretzels. You also notice others walking off alone.

    Who will win the struggle for survival? Only time will tell.....

    Rules:
    1.) Alive people can talk. Dead people can’t. The only exception to this rule is that if you are told in your role PM who your teammates are, you may speak with them, but only for strategic reasons. Information acquired after death can never be passed on to a living player. Additionally, people cannot come back from the dead, ever.

    2.) Role PMs may be freely distributed except for Night 0. Screenshots are banned, obviously.

    3.) IRC logs can be faked, including logs with the hosts. Impersonation, however, is banned.

    4.) Every day, a lynch will take place. To place a vote, post in bold “<verb> User”. So long as its obvious that’s what you want to vote for, it will count as a vote. Days will have a deadline of 48 hours. In the case of an obvious majority, we may end the day early, but we will usually keep the day going for the whole 48 hours.

    4.1) If there is a tie in the votes, no deaths will occur.

    5.) Don’t stealth vote. If we feel that the vote was stealthed, we will revoke it.

    6.) Send all night PMs to Altair and askaninjask. Deadlines for the nights are also 48 hours each, apart from Night 0, which will be 72 hours long to facilitate conversation. Don’t be late; you guys are supposed to be the experts.

    7.) Priorities are secret and set in stone.

    8.) This game is multifaction. Some factions start out knowing their teammates and some don’t.

    9.) If Faction A needs Faction B dead, then Faction B necessarily needs Faction A dead. There is no faction that needs you dead that is not listed in the win condition of your role PM.

    10.) You may find “moling” to be easier than usual in this game. That being said, we will not write any fake PMs for you.

    11.) Inform us of the IRC channels and spreadsheets you make. We want to know what’s going on in our own game!

    12.) Information from the hosts is entirely trustworthy.

    13.) Don’t complain that your faction is “weaker” than other factions. Every faction has both strengths and weaknesses. Even if the balance is slightly shifted toward some faction, each faction has a decent chance at winning the game.

    14.) This is a relatively closed theme mafia. Every role is food, and the roles of every faction follow the name of each faction.

    15.) No items! Don’t false-claim thief or you will be laughed at.

    16.) Some of the prose may sound unbelievable. We’re doing the best that we can... it’s difficult to explain how food items can do all of the things that we say they can do.
