The Rules
(plagiarized from Pyropizm)

Every game day, each player is allowed to vote for whomever they believe is mafia. Since all roles remain anonymous, mafia members will vote along with the townies.

For each game day, a new thread will be made and will open up with a narrative.  Each player then has the chance to vote off another player.  Simply type in BOLD for whom you wish to vote.  You may change your vote as much as you like.

Every night, the mafia is able to make one hit. These are not based on calendar numbers, but rather on game days. The player who is able to send in the hit order will be informed by the host as to who has that ability.

For the townies to win, they must remove all mafia members from the game.

For the mafia to win, they only need to tie the game. I.E., there are two townies left and two mafia members left.

There may be some exceptions to this based on some special roles. Make sure you are familiar with the roles of the game and their win conditions so as to not be surprised when the game is in action.

Majority Vote Rule

In past versions, Mafia game days often lasted 24 hours. For this game, the length is going to vary.

Each game day can last a maximum of 48 hours or so. I will mention what the maximum day length period will be each day in the Announcements post. However, if the players come to a majority vote before that day's deadline and that vote holds for 2 hours, then the day will end and a night period will begin. So, let's imagine there are 16 players and 9 players vote Player A, 3 vote for Player B and 1 votes for Player C. In this case, Player A would be voted out provided there's no change in Player A's vote total in the 2 hours from the 9th vote which is what makes the vote a majority vote. The day would end after the 2 hours wait even if there was still 16 hours left before the 48 hour mark.

Let's say that the 9th vote was cast for Player A but an hour later, the 7th person to vote Player A decides to change their vote from Player A to Player B. However, 30 minutes after that change, another player logs on and votes for Player A restoring the 9 votes against Player A. In this example, Player A would not be eliminated in 30 minutes from the new 9th vote. The majority vote was lost in between that 2 hour period. Even though it was restored in that period, a new 2 hour period starts from when the new 9th vote cast.

In the case of 16 players, 9 votes is the majority. Even if other players hadn't voted yet, it doesn't matter since all the remaining votes combined could only equal 7 which is a minority vote. If a majority vote isn't reached before 48 hours is up, then who ever has the most votes at the end of the 48 hour period is the one voted out. So, if the votes are 6 for Player A, 5 for Player B, and 3 for Player C, then Player A is voted out because of having the highest vote total even though 2 players didn't vote and could have put Player B in a higher vote total.

Again, days won't necessarily have to last 48 hours but the possibility is always there.
