Approved by Shade Blazade is cohost - please add myself and them to all discords/conversations/sheets As the sun rose 3 factions emerged from their parents basements to duke it out. In one corner, the Mafia Faction stormed through, attempting to keep their strong arm on the circus. While the hipster kids, the Other Games faction stopped doing cat reveals to defend their tastes. Finally, the Tabletop faction rolled poorly and failed a diplomacy check so now they are here. tl;dr: This is a 15 person multifaction with 3 public, uniformed factions. The Mafia faction, the Other Game faction (read: Walrus) and the Tabletop faction. This game uses a unicycle format. 72 hours for C0, 48 for the rest. In this game, information is everything. Being able to acquire it and protect your own is what's going to keep you alive. Furthermore, results may be intentionally false and the hosts may lie to you so the wise will trust their gut as much, if not more than what they get in results. Game Mechanics (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Game Mechanics (open) Game Mechanics (close) Primary Mechanic For this game information is key, there are 4 major pieces of information: smogon username, alias, role name and faction. In order to use a faction kill, players must submit an alias as well as two of the other three pieces of information (two of faction/Smogon Username/role name) + alias for the kill to work. For example, if you wanted to kill player A, you would submit: Faction kill Player A, role name: Dead Person, Faction: Dead memes Actions In addition, when choosing a target for night actions, you may submit any amount of the other 3 major information pieces beyond what is required. It is public knowledge that there may be roles that punish you for not having all 4 key pieces of information attached to actions. If an action fails, you will be notified as such, but not why it failed. If an action has a limited use, or a cooldown and it fails, the game proceeds as if that action had been used and the use will be expended or the cooldown applied. Faction Kills Each faction has a faction kill they can use once every 2 cycles (so one time during cycles 1 and 2, once during cycles 3 and 4, so it is possible to use a kill cycle 2 and cycle 3 in that fashion). If more than one person attempts to use the kill, it will fail. Fake Claims In this game, certain players may be provided with safe fake claims in their role PMs. Provided with these safe claims are the win condition and any relevant faction information that the role would obtain if real. If you do not have a safe-claim, you may request one for a particular faction, but know that all of the best ones are already taken. Rules (borrowed from Castlevania mafia (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Rules (borrowed from Castlevania mafia (open) Rules (borrowed from Castlevania mafia (close) Aliases/Lynching: Each of you has an alias in addition to your role. This alias acts as an identity. Most actions in this game target aliases rather than users. When you lynch, you will vote to lynch an alias rather than a user. Please bold your lynch vote if you want it to be counted. At the end of each cycle, the aliases that voted for the day's lynch will be revealed in alphabetical order. Tie votes result in no lynch. There may or may not be effects which alter the vote total, and I will not reveal true vote counts. All aliases and roles will be randomly assigned. Role PMs/Game Etiquette: You may not copy and paste the full text of your role PM. You may not share screenshots of any kind. You may not add people to game related conversations without the consent of everyone currently in it (including me). You may not attempt to impersonate other users. You may paraphrase your role PM, describe flavor and abilities in your own words, copy/paste your win condition or role name verbatim, or fake logs with anyone. I reserve the right to make any assessment with regard to game ethics. Add me to all Smogon Conversations related to this game that you create. Invite me to all discord servers, and all sheets (email@example.com) Game Progression: This game will be in Unicycle format. While typically lynch votes are cast during the day and roles are used during the night, we combine day and night into one cycle. You will cast a lynch vote for the cycle while submitting the action in your Role PM. First, the person with the most votes will be lynched, then "night" actions will resolve, players receive results, and the next cycle begins. With the exception of Cycle 0, all cycles will be 48 hours-ish. Death and Communication: This is an Outside Communication game, you may speak at any time in any venue, but we recommend finding players in #circus on the Social Forums Discord (ask if you don't have this). When you die there will be no wayhttp://www.smogon.com/forums/forums/circus-maximus.78/create-thread to revive you, and you will no longer be able to talk to living players about the game. Winning: To win each faction must eliminate all other factions Priority: Is set before the game. You may ask me about priority, I will probably not answer. Player list People 1.
