Let's try this again...

hosted by me and only me

This is a 21 player 1v1 outside contact mafia game that uses aliases. Flavor will be randomized using Wikipedia's random article function. If you don't read the rules please just know that you are not allowed to copy/paste any part of your role pm, no exceptions.

i doubt we'll get to 21 but it would be really cool if we did. i can cut some roles although i'd rather not so maybe like 18? 15? 14?

the village
the mafia
unidentified number of neutrals that may or may not exist

Game Progression
This game has night phases and day phases. Each will last 48 hours unless otherwise noted. The game will begin on Night 0, on which no kills will happen but any other role is applicable. If I decide to shorten the length of phases, I will announce this ahead of time. Extensions may be granted on a case-by-case basis.

Most players have a role they can use at night. They do so in the format specified by their role PM, by replying to the role conversation sent by me. Some players may have passive roles rather than active ones. Some might have both. Every role in the game is considered unique, ie no one else has the exact some role, although passive abilities may or may not be unique.

Each player has an alias. This functions as your "username" for the purposes of roles and lynches. That means instead of targeting "Jalmont" with a role/vote, you will be targeting an alias, which a list of will be provided of in the OP of the game.

Lynches occur during the day and take the form of a popular vote. To vote in the lynch, post some bolded variation of "lynch [alias]" or "vote [alias]" in the thread. Whoever receives the most votes in the lynch will die. Some players' votes may be worth more or less than the usual one vote. A vote count will not be provided. Players do not know what majority is and will not be told. The day phase will be extended if there is a ever a legitimate need, and this includes if a stealth lynch is happening (as evidenced by a large change in votes close to deadline). Please unbold previous votes if you decide to change your vote. You may not edit past posts to vote.

Actions have no priority except where explicitly noted. Actions just work unless interfered with by another player and you will always be told about this if the case. Feel free to ask for details on how your role works.

Dead players cannot dead talk unless you are on a non-village faction for purposes of strategy. As a general rule, don't talk to players who are dead/not in the game about the game unless you clear it with me.

only one faction can win. a faction wins when it is the last faction standing.

There are no bamboozles at all in this game. You can expect to fully trust all results. The host will never lie to you. I can't promise that you won't get bamboozled by your fellow players though.

This is an outside-communication enabled game. While screenshots and other forms of screen sharing are disallowed, any other method of communication about the game is valid, including but not limited to forum PMs, Discord, and carrier pigeon. Utilization of the Circus Maximus Discord channel is heavily recommended.

-Any Circus Maximus and Smogon rules not specifically listed in these rules still applies.
-Do not copy/paste your role PM or results, no exceptions. Paraphrasing, of course, is OK, and you may quote verbatim parts of your role PM which are impossible to paraphrase (such as your role name).
-NEW: Do not copy/paste conversations with the host. You can paraphrase though.
-Faking chatlogs is permitted - feel free to ask for assistance with this.
-Do not add other users to conversations that they weren't originally a part of without my approval.
-Add me to every Smogon conversation or Google Doc you create related to the game.
-I reserve the right to deem any action not listed here as being in violation of the rules and unsportsmanlike, and act accordingly.
-Don't be a douche. While not expressly required, good sportsmanship is highly recommended and quite commendable.

any questions or concerns pm me here on discord wherever you can find me. tell your friends! tell your family! tell your coworkers! if you are borderline about joining let me know so i can convince you! literally 0 experience necessary! should be a fun time. don't be shy! pls signup =]

When signing up feel free to give leave a thought on what theme the alias list should follow. As of now, it's probably going to be pokemon to keep things simple.

signups here (15/18)
