    General Rules

    1. While you are alive feel free to talk to other players. When you are dead do not talk to anyone. If you are not playing in the game but have interest in subbing in, make an effort to not learn anything from the players.

    2. This game will start on Cycle 0. Role PMs may be exchanged as soon as Cycle 0. Attacks are not valid on Cycle 0, but all other actions are allowed.

    3. Do not take spelling or grammatical errors as proof of faking. We are only human and can make mistakes. There are no set number of sentences for intro or action flavor.

    4. You may paste things that hosts tell you, but be aware that what we say might not necessarily be the truth. You can fake logs; ask the hosts for assistance if you would like it. Screenshots are disallowed. Do not impersonate hosts or other players.

    5. The hosts may, on occasion, lie to you. However, this is likely only going to happen to feed whatever misinformation is already going around, rather than introducing new misinformation.

    6. This game uses the Unicycle system for phases; a cycle is basically an integrated day and night. Every cycle will last for 48 hours, though as the game winds down this may be cut to 24 hours at host discretion. The cycle will not end when there is majority.

    7. Stealth lynching will be allowed if you can pull it off.

    8. To vote you must bold your vote and post “Flavor <alias>”. To change your vote please edit your original post with your new vote. You may choose to vote “No Lynch” as well, and any vote towards a dead user will count as “No Lynch”. If you would like to vote for nothing but have already voted for something, then unbold your original vote and say something along the lines of it being retracted. In the event of a tie nobody will receive lynch damage.

    9. Do not target dead players with your actions. Nothing will happen.

    10. Priorities have been set beforehand. Do not ask about them. You will not learn about them until after the game.

    11. There are no items in this game. Only claim to be a thief if you are a moron.

    12. Please inform the hosts of any spreadsheets, IRC channels, etc that you create. Give us access.

    13. Send your PMs to both of the hosts (General Spoon and theangryscientist) so that we can both update. If you are choosing to not use your ability, please submit “CX - Idling”. You may send actions over IRC.

    14. If a Role PM and the rules clash, the role PM takes precedence.

    15. We are the hosts and will be writing the Postgame. It would be wonderful if we had an idea of what is going on, so don’t feel afraid to talk to us about your thoughts on the game, though we can neither confirm nor deny any thoughts you have bouncing around in your head. We may also approach you every now and then and ask for your thoughts; if you are busy when we ask just say so and we will leave you alone.

    16. If you have a non-information role you will not receive a result, unless your action fails. If your action fails, you will receive a result to this effect. If you think that you should have received a result PM but didn’t, please contact the host who performed the last update, or the other host if he appears to be free.

    Game-Special

    1. Only sign up if you will be active. Be active. Make sure you are active. You will lose if you are not active, and your inactivity will hurt any alliances that you have entered into. Nobody likes an inactive player. If we feel that you can become more active, we will send you a warning PM. However, if we do not feel you will become active even if we give you a warning, we may sub you out without warning. Please be active.

    2. IRC usage is mandatory. You will lose if you do not use IRC. If the hosts have not seen you on IRC recently, that is a valid reason to sub you out.

    3. Every player in the game is a Neutral. All win conditions are “You win if you are alive when A, B, and C are dead.” Enemies are mutual; this means that if a player is in your WC, you are in that player’s WC. Players will share at most only 1 enemy.

    4. This game uses aliases. Every player has an alias. Actions and votes are to be directed at aliases.

    5. This game features HP. Every role has a certain amount of Max HP and Attack, and every role starts at its Max HP. Most roles have 18 Max HP and 3 Attack, though there may be exceptions. When a player’s HP is reduced to 0, they are dead and eliminated from the game. A player’s Current HP can never exceed their Max HP.

    6. To attack a player please send a PM to both hosts with “CX - Attack <alias>” in the title. If your attack is successful, <alias> will lose HP equal to your Attack. You may only attack one <alias> a cycle.

    7. The alias who receives the most votes in the lynch will take HP damage. The Cycle 0 lynch will do 5 damage, the Cycle 1 lynch will do 10 damage, and the Cycle 2 lynch and all lynches after that will do 15 damage.

    8. If your HP changes during the cycle, you will be sent a PM with your updated HP when the cycle ends. If you do not receive a PM, assume that your HP remains unchanged.

    9. You will almost certainly lose if you do not work with other players.

    Etiquette

    1. If you sign up to play in this game, you are expected to be active. If at some point in the game you become unable, or unwilling, to be active, let the hosts know so that they can find a sub.

    2. Do not ever just vanish with no warning. Be sure to inform the hosts in advance if you will not be able to be online, so that we can find a sub ahead of time. It takes all of 1 minute to drop the hosts a PM. About the only valid excuses for not informing the hosts in advance of your disappearance is if your city is blacked out for days, or you die of a heart attack, or something similar to this.

    3. If the hosts get sick of prodding you and telling you to play, you will be subbed out, even if you have been getting your actions in. There is no reason that you should need to be prodded so much the hosts get sick of it.


    You may request one of the following of the hosts privately:

    When your role is strong (pick one of: Earlygame, Midgame, or Lategame)
    When your role is weak (pick one of: Earlygame, Midgame, or Lategame)
    A kind of role you would like

    Signups will stay open until about Wednesday (possibly later), as I will not have Internet access on Monday or Tuesday (and possibly later).

    The game channel is #submarine . If you do not show up in it and you have signed up, then you are a loser.

    If you would like a reserve, ask.

    This is a 24 player game, btw.

    With the lack of P1's I may as well sign up.

    EDIT: You weren't on when I was on irc General Spoon so here's a log as proof.


    20:25 *** Metal_Bagon joined #submarine
    Sinking Submarine game channel | Signups ending eventually | Check the OP for details on what you can request | I had forgotten to put the number of players in the OP

    20:25 Metal_Bagon: damn, general spoon isn't on
    20:25 Metal_Bagon: :(
    20:25 Yeti: but you are
    20:25 Yeti: :X
    20:26 Metal_Bagon: but he won't have seen me on...
    20:26 Yeti: pm him the log
    20:26 Yeti: of my shock and awe
    20:27 Metal_Bagon: ok, maybe I'll just edit into my SU post though
    20:27 Yeti: Metal_Bagon are you going to be on irc more than once a day :\
    20:27 Yeti: er
    20:27 Yeti once a week i meant lmao
    20:27 Metal_Bagon: once a day I think I can handle
    20:27 Metal_Bagon: I had a blockade of homework during N0 of red pandas [so that's why I wasn't on then]

    PS: I cut out part of the log so it actually made sense.

    Edit: Checking at my schedule, it seems I'll be really busy until early-mid April. Also leaving on vacation the last few days of March, so I can't join. Sorry about that.
