    _____Many capable men responded to the call to arms against the Yellow Scarf Rebellion. Against such strong and brave heroes, the Scarves were pushed back. When rumours that their leader, Zhang Jue, had died of illness began to spread, the rebels were quickly routed. However, the rebellion was merely a symptom of a greater disease. The Ten Regular Attendants still controlled the court, and with the death of Emperor Ling they controlled the heir to the throne.

    _____He Jin, who had led the efforts against rebellion so few years prior, wept as he faced the state of the Han Dynasty. His heart heavy and his willpower wavering, the eunuchs lade a trap and had him assassinated. Hearing news of this, two great men under He Jin’s command stormed the palace with their army and slew the eunuchs. However, it was not the noble Yuan Shao to reach the child emperor, but the pompous and corrupt Dong Zhuo. Protected by the fearsome warrior Lu Bu, Dong Zhuo executed the young emperor in favor of his younger brother.

    _____So began a reign of terror the likes of which had not been seen in centuries. Dong Zhuo raided whole villages, sacking them for their valuables and executed all who spoke against him. With the Mandate of Heaven, Dong Zhuo could use the voice of emperor to influence any vote during the day. In order to rescue the emperor and gain the mandate for their own use, Dong Zhuo would have to be slain. Yuan Shao possessed a powerful army, but his stubborn pride and his unwillingness to listen to his best advisors meant that he stood alone. He needed allies, and many veterans of the rebellion rose to the occasion, if only seeking the emperor’s power for themselves.

    _____One of these men was Cao Cao, the son of a eunuch. During the rebellion he raised an army to fight it, and afterwards spent his time unifying the northern plains. As such, among his peers he possessed the most land and hired the most capable officers. His son would eventually be declared emperor of the Wei Dynasty, referred to by scholars today as Cao Wei. Cao Cao was not a man of corruption and decadence as Dong Zhuo, but his tactical and political prowess combined with great ambition would one day pose a much greater evil. In his own words, “I would rather let the world down, than have the world let me down”.

    _____Liu Bei was a peasant, and a distant relative of the emperor. He took an oath of brotherhood with two ruffians, and formed a small militia to fight against the Scarves. Though his forces were small and he was not held in much esteem, he truly wept to see the emperor in such abuse. His loyalty to the Han and his liberal treatment of the people would eventually lead to the founding of the Shu Han Dynasty. Cao Cao once said of Liu Bei, “There are only two heroes in this era, you and I”.

    _____Sun Quan, a descendant of Sun Tzu himself, was not even an adult during the rebellion. His father Sun Jian fought the Scarves, and after his death his older brother Sun Ce rebuilt the kingdom than the Sun family had once held. This territory would become the foundation of the Eastern Wu Dynasty. Being near so many rivers and the coast, Sun Quan’s army was made up largely of pirates and other brigands. Sun Quan desired to expand the base of power that his family had earned, and he lusted after more land.

    _____Cao Wei, Shu Han, Eastern Wu, Yuan Shao. Though their motives different and their ultimate goals in conflict, they would have to unite against the threat of Dong Zhuo, if only to gain the Mandate of Heaven. For whoever controls the emperor controls the Middle Kingdom, and all the known world.


    You'd do well to pay attention to my story posts, as they'll reveal important information. Because it is extremely important, I'll explain the above in greater detail. Cao Wei is the village, Shu Han and Eastern Wu are the mafia.

    Currently, a neutral named Dong Zhuo possesses the Mandate of Heaven. This allows him to post anonymous lynch targets and he gets additional votes. You can take the Mandate of Heaven from another player by killing them, and the Mandate will transfer to your faction's leader. If the holder of the Mandate is lynched, Cao Wei gains the Mandate.

    Each faction leader, in addition to a neutral named Yuan Shao, is also that faction's Alliance Maker. The Alliance Maker system allows factions to cooperate anonymously, and if the current Alliance Maker dies the function will be passed on to someone else in their faction.

    Rules (open)
    1. Whilst you are alive you can talk to anyone about the game. Once you are dead you cannot talk to anyone about the game, even if you are mafia and on the same team. Knowledge acquired after death cannot be transferred from a dead player to a living player.

    1.5. There may or may not be abilities that contradict this rule, but you may not fake claim them.

    2. Every user has a role PM. Role PMs may not be shown to other users on Night 0 unless they are mafia on the same team, but starting from Day 1 onwards they may be freely distributed. Screenshotting of all forms is banned. If anyone finds a person encouraging others to take screenshots or taking screenshots and showing other people, please be sure to report it.

    3. You can paste things told to you by the host. You may fake logs. Do not take pasting of a host conversation as definite proof, these can be faked. If you want to fake a log, feel free to PM one of the hosts for assistance. Impersonation of a host or another user however, is banned at all points. Please do not attempt to impersonate in any way.

    4. Each day will have a deadline of 48 hours. You may vote to lynch users during the day by posting "anything USER" in bold, or "No lynch" if you don't want to lynch anyone (lynch votes will not count if they're not in the correct format!), and if you change your vote, you MUST edit the bolded text out of the old post if you post with a new vote. Once there is a majority as determined by the host, there will be a grace period of 3 hours, and if the majority is still in place after said grace period, the day will end. Please don't ask about when a majority is reached - once it's time for the day to end, it'll end (provided a host is there to update). The game will start on Night 0, there are no deaths on N0.

    4.5. If there's a tie, both users with the highest amount of votes will be lynched, but no lynch will take place the next day.

    5. Each night will have a deadline of 48 hours. This gives you 48 hours to send your night action. Please state what you are doing in the PM title, it makes it MUCH easier to handle. Remember that PMs are to be sent to vonFiedler.

    5.5. If you're not going to do anything at night, send a PM titled "Night X - idling". This makes keeping track of things easier and informs me that you're still playing the game.

    6. Priorities have been decided beforehand and will not be revealed.

    7. This game does not feature items.

    8. This is not Dynasty Warriors Mafia. Some playable characters in Dynasty Warriors are absent, and some people who are not playable in Dynasty Warriors are present. Do not say “That claim is fake because that’s not a Dynasty Warrior”.

    9. Some of the role PMs have little flavor and some have alot. I gave up on consistency after only three role PMs were finished. Also, I make mistakes. Don’t take a spelling or grammar error as proof of a fake claim.

    10. Inspectors are sane, but there is a mole in this game.

    11. Only sign up if you know you're going to be at least fairly active. If I notice that you seem to be idle, I reserve the right to have you forcefully subbed out if necessary. I'll most likely nudge first, but I will be a strict fuck about this.

    12. Be careful who you trust. This should go without saying really.

    13. Share with me any spreadsheets or IRC channels you make.
