Welcome to the game thread for The Interim Thone game. The game will begin once the rand happens, but I wanted the rules ahead of time. Rolecards coming soon.

Initial Game Information:

  1. This is a cult style game. I repeat. This is a cult style game.
  2. There will be NO writeups this game. Certain actions will receive feedback (outside of investigation results), based on what happens during the night that can be saved in logbooks or shared in the thread. There may be some flavor for start/end of day, but it should not be used as game information
  3. Role-claiming, breadcrumbing, fake claiming, etc will be allowed. A list of all roles in the game will be made available to everyone. There is nothing hidden this game as all players will see all possible abilities. While claims are allowed, please do not abuse this as it can take away from the game as a whole.

As this game includes roles and rules that are different, I have made a few channels inside the game discord that will show all potential roles in the game. This does not mean every role is in the game, but they will be randomly decided based on the below formula.

Game Setup Specifics:

15 player game:

- The Cult or Unseen will begin with 2 members. The Cult may convert to reach a total of 4 members, the Unseen may convert to reach a total of 3 members.
- Conversion Protection: If conversion fails three times in a row, a convert will be chosen at random from all eligible players; including the current failed target. This will occur after all other actions on the night of the third failure.

Sample Starting Role Breakdown - 15 player game

1 King
1 Prince
1+ Sheriff or Paladin
6-7 Additional Blue Dragon Members

2 Unseen or Cult Members
1 Neutral Killing
2-3 Other Neutrals

Day/Night Phases:

Day/Night will end at 8:00pm ET (GMT-4). Length of phases may be adjusted to compensate. End game phases may start/end earlier depending on game state.

Day 1 will last a maximum of 24 hours and will be a standard majority elimination or Sleep. After Day 1, the remaining game will follow the below.

Sleep is a valid vote and will immediately end day upon hitting majority during the nomination phases on Day 2+.

Day Phases are split into two distinct phases that cannot exceed a total of 48 hours. During the day, players will vote to put another player on trial for treason, known as the Nomination Phase. The day will then move into the Trial Phase which lasts for at most 12 hours. During this phase, players will vote to execute or pardon a player. There can be at most two trials during one day phase. At the 36 hour mark, if no trial has been done, the player with the most votes will automatically be put on trial for the remainder of the day. This will not happen when day phases are shortened. The day will end when a player is executed, two trials end in pardon, or the total day length hits 48 hours.

Nomination Phase: Players will submit votes to put another player on trial starting on Day 2. The nomination phase will continue until a majority is reached or 36 hours have passed without a trial being initiated.

Trial Phase: Once the game progresses to this phase players will vote to Execute, Pardon, or Abstain (you can still use BBCode). The trial ends after 12 hours or majority is reached on Execute or Pardon. If majority is not reached, all non-voting players will automatically Abstain and a simple majority of voting players will determine the outcome. If there is a tie, the player on trial will be pardoned.

If a King is eliminated or killed, the first 12 hours of the day will be to elect a new King. All votes during this time will be for that purpose. If majority is not reached by the end of the 12 hour period, no King will be promoted and there will no longer be a King for the remainder of the game. When a new King is elected or the 12 hours runs out, day will continue from where it left off. These vote phases no longer occur if there are 5 players remaining.

Night Phase will last 24 hours and no talking will be allowed in thread during this time. You can use the general channel in Discord for non-game related chat during night. You have until 7:00pm ET (GMT-5) to submit your night actions each night.

Game Mechanics

  1. At the start of the game, one player will be announced as the King. The King will either start as a Good King, Unseen King, or Cult King. This King’s alignment will not be known and you will need to use your social deduction skills to determine if the King is on your side or not. The odds for Good King are 60% and the odds for Cult/Unseen is 40%
  2. There can only be the Unseen or Cult in this game. Not both. There can be no more than 3 of any class that is not unique. There must be at least one healer (Physician, Alchemist, or Chronomancer).
  3. If the King is removed by vote or killed, the town will come together and vote on a new King during a special Dawn phase. After that, the day will begin. If there are five or fewer players remaining, there will be no new elections for King.
  4. Phase changes for Nomination and Trial will happen immediately upon hitting the votes or time passing and does not require the mod to move phases.
  5. All players will be able to keep a logbook. This cannot exceed 50 words (I will be forgiving with formatting not counting towards words) and will be released to all players upon your death. This can contain information about your targets, role, things that happened, results, etc. Or it can be used to provide disinformation depending on how roles can obscure and manipulate flips, faking results, etc. Or you can just use it to shitpost/taunt on your death. You can submit one logbook each phase which will lock it in as the newest one. If a logbook is not submitted, none will be flipped or the most recent version submitted will be used.
  6. If you are occupied, redirected, or imprisoned a total of 3 times (separate nights), you will become immune to all forms of occupation and redirection (except to The Prince). You will not be told when this happens and it will just work passively. If you are imprisoned three times by the Prince, you cannot be imprisoned again.
  7. Imprisonment will not remove a Cult/Unseen player from their chat, but will prevent them from speaking in that chat during that night.
  8. Framed results are Killer/Offensive to the Princess, Unseen to the Sheriff, Cult to the Paladin, and the Observer will see them visiting someone who died that night.
  9. If an attack is unhealable, it cannot be protected by typical heals/protects but can still be stopped by death immunity. Death immunity, in some cases, can be overridden by a player’s actions. Death Immunity does not prevent death from bleeds.
  10. The game will follow typical Mafia feedback. Only roles that need a notification of their action failing will be told.
  11. I recommend reading the roles as some roles are death immune (can be bypassed by other roles and actions), occupy (roleblock) immune, and redirect/conversion immune.

Feedback: This is how some results will return to give you an idea

  1. If your action is a kill, bleed, or returns results, and fails for most reasons, you will be told Action Failed.
  2. If you protect someone and the action fails resulting in their death, you will be told Action Failed. Only the Chronomancer will be told if they successfully prevent a death due to their role mechanics. If a player survives a kill attempt due to a heal, they will be told they survived but not who healed them.
  3. You will be told at the end of the phase if you are bleeding, unless hidden. Only the player who was bled will be told if their bleed is healed.
  4. If there is specific role feedback, it will be listed on your rolecard.

Rules:

  1. No discussing this game with any players outside of the game thread, unless you have a specialized Discord thread to do so.
  2. Please no angleshooting or OGI (out of game information), such as a player’s potential lurking or activity, or seeing they are active in another thread/discord but not Mafia. Focus on the game and what is happening in the game.
  3. There will be no night chat allowed in the thread. The general chat in Discord will be enabled to allow non-game chat during each night phase.
  4. All other typical Mafia rules are in play. All actions will follow Natural Action Resolution and unmodified actions of the same type will go first. Conflicting redirections may fail.

Living Players:

1. FutureHold - King
2. 3puppies
3. Badger
4. BN
5. CWE
6. LemonDemonGirl
7. Listo95
8. Matthieu
9. MitchRapp
10. morrison
11. MTR
12. Robozerim
13. Satsu
14. Val the Moofia Boss
15. Xanjori

Dead Players:

Day/Night Writeups:

Current Phase/Timer

Everyone of relevance in the Kingdom gathered together to discuss the worrying events of late. However, there were some amongst them that had other aims. Would they be able to figure out what was real and what was not?

They looked to the King and hoped he would lead them true.

The starting King is FutureHold. All hail King FutureHold!!!

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

Day 1 is beginning and will last 24 hours. Feel free to yeet or sleep if you'd like and get in any day actions, if you have any or wish to use them.

Questions are usually indicated with a question mark. Which question of yours did I miss? Hard to sift through your (what I can only assume is drunk) ramblings.

Well aren’t we the brave slightly..aggressive one here? What has my alcohol level got to do with this? Please be gentlemanly sir!

Eg asked you who you thought of anyone else despite my “performance”? Yet you seem to beend a bit here.

I don’t know if this is hard defence town mode but defending himself/aggressive attacks does not bode well in the Palace of…Future.

Asked you simple questions yet you defend.

Well we are waiting to see what kind of leader he is. I guess it is fitting for him to be king since first time we did this he was the Prince

Morrison was the starting king that game and didn’t die, so something must’ve happened to him offscreen like your vengeful ghost putting him in a deep sleep

Nah, I think the King Future / not king MTR dynamic presents an opportunity for us to learn something. Sorry MTR, but

Vote: MTR You just had a long game built about you and your house. So you can go home first.

It's a holiday weekend which means I get an extra day of couponing, so I doubt I will be around in any meaningful way until Tuesday. If I don't get inactivity killed by then, maybe there'll be something we can chew on by then.

Also, it's die of fate time! The D20 says 17! But there's only 15 players. Reroll for a 8! I'm not bothering to alphabetize for my own list this time, so 8 is Matthieu according to the first post.

If it were a normal game, I would agree. Though in a cult game, I think it is worth taking someone out this day phase since if we do pick the correct target then it'll be pretty devastating for the bad guys.

From what I understand there are only 3 scummers BD need to remove right now. 2 cultist faction and an SK type role.
It is only 20% chance to get it right at random. It is less than in instandard mafia game. not woth it.
