    All is not well in the forest of Werewood. The trees, always having had some form of minor sentience, are becoming more and more aggressive. Where before they would merely push out those that did not belong amongst their boughs, now the trees were punishing anyone - or thing! - that dared intrude upon what they perceived to be their sacred home.

    Some, however, believe this is not enough. Sinister, dark energy infests these trees, and they have resorted to murder. "Extremists!" other trees have cried out. Left no other choice, the trees are waging war amongst themselves to remove the infection that plagues their brothers. Sadly, there is but only one way to know if a tree is infected...

    They must cut them down and examine their roots.

    ------------

    This is a mini-mafia game designed for nine players. First nine players to sign up will be our players. This thread will serve as both sign up and gameplay thread.

    Standard mafia rules apply. I'm not particularly interested in posting them all over again, so cliff notes version:

    1) Each player has a vote per day phase. Votes and unvotes are placed as such:
    Vote: Caluin Graye
    Unvote: CG

    As always, I don't really care the formatting, so long as two things are true: I can put 'vote:' into the search filter and find them, and it takes me less than half a second to determine who you're voting for. Unvotes must come before revotes.

    2) A person will be locked and lynched at end of the day if they have votes equaling more than half, rounded up, of the players still alive. The lock happens immediately, so vote carefully. (I.E., there is no "will be lynched, but not yet a lock" mechanic)

    3) Day will be 48 hours, night 24 hours. No posting in thread during night. We will be starting with a day phase. Mafia will have day talk.

    4) This is an open setup game. There will be nine players, two of which are mafia. The setup will be one of these six:
    1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Rolecop, 5 Vanilla Townies, Sane Cop, Doctor.
    1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Rolecop, 5 Vanilla Townies, Sane Cop, Jailkeeper.
    1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Rolecop, 5 Vanilla Townies, Doctor, Jailkeeper.
    1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Rolecop, 6 Vanilla Townies, Sane Cop.
    1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Rolecop, 6 Vanilla Townies, Jailkeeper.
    1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Rolecop, 6 Vanilla Townies, Doctor.

    It is up to the town and mafia to determine which of the six setups has been randomly chosen.

    5) Town wins when mafia are eliminated. Mafia wins when town is eliminated or they control the lynch.

    6) Sample PMs:
    Town PM:
    Win Condition: Town
    Role: Jailkeeper


    Mafia PM:
    Win Condition: Mafia
    Role: Goon



    If you have any questions, please ask! I'm sort of shotgunning this a bit, so let me know if anything is unclear.

    Sign ups are open now.

    Players alive:
    1) Bad Ash
    2) Solar Ice
    3) Gwaihir
    6) Ankeli
    7) kestegs
    9) Goryani

    Players dead:
    4) Moar
    5) Zokar
    8) Phillinicus

    Day One start.

    Day one end/day two start.

    Day two end/day three start.

    Day three end/day four start.

    Day four end/finale.

    I am wondering if it is necessary to have 48 hour Days for 9 players. How about a 24h Day/night interval, similar to Assassin in the Castle? That way if Ph is not ready to host the game after this one is over, why not run another one to give a chance for players that can't make it for this one? Just a suggestion. :)

    I agree with Solar. 24 hours should be enough and if there's a special reason it could be 48h on request.

    As the game progresses, I'll likely shorten both night and day phases. To start the first couple days though, I'd like to give everyone 48 hours so they don't feel rushed into the first few lynches.

    If you are stuck on 8 players and need the last spot filled before you can start, I'll signup. I'm unbelievably busy through the weekend. I'd essentially miss the first day phase and there is a VERY good chance I'd be modkilled. That would suck for my team.

    No mafia roleblocker option? I thought these semi-open games usually have that option, whether it's a choice between rolecop/roleblocker or if the goon could sometimes be a roleblocker.

    I'll pencil you in, but it's still early yet.

    I thought that was strange too, but figure it's because only one of six options results in "Follow the cop" shenanigans, making it riskier to claim cop. (F11 had one in four). Additionally, the rolecop allows the team to fish for the doc/jailkeeper twice as fast if they think he exists, so less time is spent allowing investigations to occur.

    Sure, I'll play!

    But if someone else really wants to play I'll gladly give up my spot to them.

    It starts as soon as I have enough people to join. I sort of expected that to have happened by now.

    Day start. Playing it by ear at the moment.

    I think Phil wanted to play. Might want to send a PM to him. He's no regular here and might have missed it.

    I'm in if I'm not too late!
    Edit: Thanks for the hand, Moar. Just saw this posted in the mafia stats thread.

    Phil is in. I'll give the thread say... little less than two more hours to fill the last spot. If nobody else pops in, I'll slot Goryani for the last spot and give him mod-kill immunity for inactivity for the first couple RL days.

    At that point, I'll randomize roles, send them out, and the game will start immediately following that. Probably won't do a 48 hour day to start; more like 40ish.

    Thanks everyone for being patient!

    All role PMs should be out. Goryani takes slot #9. Note that he has mod-kill immunity for inactivity for the weekend.

    Game starts immediately!

    --------------

    The trees shivered; a few in delight, more in horror. The infection was worse than expected, for one had done something horrible: It had stumped the great oak.

    The greatest tree of all. The most wise. The most tall. The most humble. Now it lay dead on the ground, nothing more than a stump, not even fit for sitting.

    "Drat!" was all it could say.

    Caluin Graye has been stumped!

    ---------------

    With nine alive, it's five votes to lock + lynch.

    Day ends in... say... 43 hours, so 3:00 PST Saturday.
