    Default Sign-ups: Rampage Out of Space (Monty Series #3)

    RAMPAGE OUT OF SPACE




    Since 2101 the Unified Marines of the Earth Nations have governed human territory with justice and peaciousity. By promoting brotherhood among the Marine fighting forces of the human factions - the toughest of the tough, the best of the best, the pick of the crop, the creme de la creme, the ne plus ultras, the nonpareils par excellence, e pluribus unum - all former social divisions within the species were quickly overcome for the sake of stanning all Marines.

    However, other problems remain. A shadowy cabal of bionically-augmented supermutants strive to smash the new world order because they're bad. Unfortunately, their biochem corpus is far in advance of UMEN's, such that a single bionic soldier is worth ten Marines in battle. In 7 years of hard fighting since the bionics made themselves known, millions have died and 3% of the Earth's landmass has been devastated.

    Now, the Unified Marines of the Earth Nations have assembled a task force, the Strike Envelope Sortie (UMENSES) of the very most elite Marines, the baddest dudes around, to engage the deepest organs of the bionic front in a daring insertion operation.



    Game Setup

    This is an experimental 17er, intended to be anxiety-driven and slightly bastard, in that some role information may be revealed to non-vanilla players over time or on conditional triggers.
    Closed setup: 13 town, 3 mafia, 1 third party. No conversion mechanics. Town wins when all threats to Town have been eliminated. Other factional victory conditions unknown.

    Rounds are 48-24 hour phases set around 8:00 PM ET. Round start time and date are negotiable during signups. Standard plurality ouster (no hammer). Full reveal on death.
    Ties at deadline are ended by sudden death (i.e. first tie-breaking vote counts, no votes on a player outside the tie are valid). If there is no sudden death within an hour the tie is broken by RNG. Ties are resolved by Rock-Paper-Scissors. Tied players have 15 minutes to submit an RPS move to the host; ties will be resolved according to these submissions. If there is a three-way tie or higher, tied players must submit [Tied players - 1] RPS orders in their PM. Missing orders will be randomized for tiebreaker.

    IMPORTANT: There is a hard 125 post cap D1-3, including during EOD. You're strong and silent types, you can manage. However, EOD posts containing only votes do not count against the cap. If you exceed the post cap you may earn a Deathpoint, which will act as a fixed vote against you on the tally the following day. There are no caps after D3.

    Twilight is uncapped. Twilight is a 1-hour discussion period following the Day. For convenience, the clock will run from the time the host posts the writeup and reveal. Tiebreakers subtract time from Twilight.


    Rules


    Take a look at this guide for players unfamiliar with mafia on the Org. It's earthy, solid, unagenda'd, generally helpful, and answers some common questions. - Zack

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    DAY RULES
    1. Vote to oust a player each day, e.g. Vote: Visorslash. Not allowed are Vote: No Lim (aka Sleep) and Vote: Abstain, since you're all a decisive, rough and ready sort of folk by flavor. Unvoting (Unvote:) is noted, but not required to place a new vote. Stick to this format. Misspellings and nicknames are acceptable as long as they are not obscure.

    2. On this forum the players must self-regulate. Do not exceed post caps or you may be penalized. Do not post while day elimination is being resolved - :00 good, :01 bad. Do not post after Twilight is finished.

    3. Host will post tallies throughout the day, but players are encouraged to maintain and share their own as well. There will be host messages signalling milestones, such as beginning of EOD or Twilight.

    4. Going a day-phase without participating (speaking or voting) puts one at risk of replacement. PM the host if you cannot continue to participate. Do not discuss the nature of substitutions.

    5. Day length will be reduced to 24 hours if F5 (Final 5) or lower is reached.

    COMMUNICATIONS RULES
    1. Do not discuss the game publicly outside the game thread.

    2. Do not ask the host mechanical questions in the thread.

    3. Living players may not communicate privately or outside the thread, unless they have a good reason. If you are unsure whether you have a good reason, PM the host. Host must be CCed on or have access to all player communications.

    4. You may not post screenshots of or directly quote your role PM or mod communications.

    5. You may not delete posts in the game thread for any reason at any time. You may make modest edits within 2 minutes of posting. The primary aim is to avoid votes or EOD posts (-1 hour) being modified, so for any edited post with a vote the vote is considered invalid. Keep that in mind. (Montmorency, keep that in mind.)

    6. If you die, you may no longer post in the thread. You may continue to Thank posts IF you are only Vanilla Town, or more plainly if you possess no hidden information.

    NIGHT RULES
    1. If you have actions to submit, the deadline is an hour before Start of Day (SoD-1).

    GENERAL RULES
    1. You are expected to behave civilly. Follow Gameroom and Org rules.

    2. Host can act in ad hoc fashion to preserve game integrity if necessary, up to and including Wrath of God (modkill).

    Hi! Is this the wrong way to pop in on this forum?

    You know that feeling of mafia withdrawal? When you're tired of speccing games and watching them like horror movies from behind bulletproof glass? That's me rn. I've been browsing whole communities looking for open signups out of mafia withdrawal. Probably means I'm either bad at spotting the signup threads or a choosing beggar but eh

    From a quick skim, this place looks really cool. Do I just... /in?

    Whoa, uh, hi. That's serendipitous. Sure, you're in, though the game won't start for at least another week (depending on signup). What is your host community?

    I'm from Art of Problem Solving. Pretty niche place, even for a forum mafia community. I've also messed around on MU for a handful of games and TS for a couple more recently.

    Please note that Communications Rule 4 was improperly repurposed from a prior game and has been edited to reflect the appropriate application. Disregard the previous version of the rule if you read it.

    @Monty: depending of the starting date, I may join (in a couple of weeks works better for me), otherwise sub.

    I prefer to start no later than Monday the 12th. The activity level shouldn't be onerous. Is that still sub territory?

    I'm hearing from multiple potential players that the game would be more suitable delayed by another week through mid-April. Call out acceptable start dates if it makes a difference.

    Note that the game will now most likely begin on April 19. Reminders/confirmations will be sent out before then.

    Please note that the post cap rule has been modified so that posts containing only votes will count toward the cap before EOD. This change has been made because with this software it would otherwise be much more difficult for players to estimate their true remaining post cap at EOD.
