    Global Rules

    All Game Hosts, Players, Staff Members and Game Managers have to follow the Sugoi Desu Guidelines in the Mafia Section.

    For Players
    • Please read all posts made by the host with utmost attention. This includes the rules, game mechanics, etc. Not doing so might lead to game breaking mistakes.
    • Fluff posts (Posts which have meaningless content) are allowed to a certain extent. Please do not go overboard with the fluff posting though.
    • You cannot edit, delete or like posts in the Mafia Section.
    • To the above since you cannot edit posts, If you have made an error or left out information from your post, you are allowed to double post and include the information and corrections there.
    • Multi-posting is allowed, but all such posts must have reasonable information or corrections to the original post.
    • You are not allowed to post quotes or screenshots of the PM's between the host and you.
    • You are not allowed to post quotes or screenshots of anything in the Team Private Conversation topics (Mafia Lair for example).
    • You are not allowed to contact other players through PM's or other mediums for discussion purposes. Keep all discussion to the game thread. The exceptions to this rule are the hosts themselves giving you a private means of communication.
    • You are not allowed to change your username when the game is ongoing without informing the host.
    • If you remain inactive for more than two phases, the Host has the right to replace or mod-kill you.
    • To the above, you must make three game related posts every Day Phase. If you don't do so, you will be replaced or mod-killed.
    • You are not allowed to use alternate accounts to participate in the games. Please use one account only!
    • You are not allowed to betray your faction. Betrayal includes assisting other factions apart from your own without solid reasoning, and actively sabotaging your own team’s efforts again without any solid reasoning.
    • Discussion is not allowed during Night Phase and the game thread will be locked. Some game hosts might make an exception to this.
    • Please keep all complaints about game moderation and game balance to yourself and only post them after the game ends.
    • If you get replaced or mod-killed, you will not be eligible for the Prizes of the game. Exceptions to this will be discussed by the Mafia Managers.
    • All questions about the game must be asked to the host through PM/Conversations. Do not ask questions to the host in the Game Thread.
    For Dead Players
    • Dead Players are not allowed to reveal anything they know about the game to anyone. They can however reveal their findings once the Game ends.
    • Dead people are not allowed to discuss anything in the Game thread either. They can only have one Farewell post after their Death. Dead People can discuss the Game once it ends.
    • Some hosts might make a Dead Players Private Conversation. Dead Players can discuss the progress of the game there.
    Voting Guidelines
    • Most Normal Mafia Games will have a separate "Voting Thread" with this Prefix attached to it [​IMG].
    • If a Voting Thread exists, you can only post your votes in the Voting thread. Votes posted in the Game Thread will be considered invalid by the host.
    • If a Mafia Game has no "Voting Thread", you can post your votes in the Game Thread.
    • Discussion is not allowed in the "Voting Thread".
    • You must mention the player whom you are voting for in your Vote Post. Example: "I vote for @Player Name" so that the Voted player can make a response in his/her defense in the game thread.
    • If you want to respond to a vote posted in the vote thread quote the vote post, copy the quote and respond to it in the game thread.
    • Always follow the vote format that the host provides. Not following the vote format will make your vote invalid.
    • It is advised that you provide a reason for your vote.
    • Vote Formats are of generally three types:-
    Vote: This format is used when you put your first vote in the Day Phase. The general format is:-
    Vote / Vote Lynch @ Player Name
    Change Vote: This format is used when you change your current vote for a player to another player. The general format is:-

    Change Vote / Change Vote Lynch @ Player Name
    Vote / Vote Lynch @ Player Name
    Abstain Vote: This format is used when you don't want to vote for any player in the Day Phase. It can also be used to negate your previous votes. Most hosts will allow you to vote even after making an abstain vote. The general format is:-
    Abstain Vote
    Power Role Guidelines
    • If you are a power role and do not want to use your power, you need to Private Message the host and inform him/her that you do not want to use your power.
    • If you do not do the above, you will get a warning from the host and will be marked inactive for the Night Phase.
    • The above also applies to Day Phase Power Roles.
    • A power role will not be allowed to self target unless specified otherwise by the host as it can be overpowered. For Example: If you are a Doctor, you generally cannot target yourself and put a self protection. Please ask the host in your role PM whether self-targeting is allowed.
    • If you are a power role and have a Private PM Convo (Mafia Lair for example), do not just post your target in the Convo and expect the host to follow it. Instead, it is advised that you also PM the host your target.
    For Hosts
    • It is optimal to distribute roles randomly through a Random Number Generator like this one.
    • It is advised that you have at least three substitute players before you start your game.
    • If you want a CountDown for your game, you can use this Holiday CountDown.
    • If your game is Bastard or Experimental you need to make this clear in your Sign Ups thread and you must put [Experimental] and [Bastard] in your game thread titles.
    • If you want to clarify some issue in your game, contact a Game Manager.
    • Do not contact Game Managers who are playing in your game. You might have to give classified information and doing so will break your game.
    • You need to make clear what type of Lynch system you are going to use in your Game.
    • It is advised that you do not give inactive player roles to members who have been lynched or killed in your game. This gives the member an unfair advantage through prior knowledge attained through his previous role. Please contact a Game Manager in case you want to do this.
    • If you are using any "Bastard Element(s)", this should be communicated prior to the game starting. Bastard Elements, in this context, are defined as elements which go beyond a reasonable measure of expectation for a player to have. If you are unsure if your game contains Bastard Elements, ask a Manager to review the game beforehand.

    What are "Normal" and "Turbo" Mafia Games?

    Normal Mafia Games are mafia games where the Day and Night Phases last for 24 hours and above. This means that people from all timezones can play the game. These games can take a month to complete and as such are slow paced games.

    Turbo Mafia Games are mafia games where the Day and Night Phases last from 15 minutes to an hour. These games are restricted in nature as people from all timezones cannot play this game . These games get over in a few hours and are as such rapid paced games.

    The Game Manager is expected to determine the gameplay quality of all players in a normal game through the two parameters given below.
    1. The amount of game related posts a player makes per Day Phase.
    2. The Quality of Gameplay based on their faction.
    The players should then be put in one of the five categories:-
    1. Extreme Low Gameplay- Players put in this category will 1 day Pro Subscription.
    2. Low Gameplay - Players put in this category will get 3 days Pro Subscription.
    3. Medium Gameplay- Players put in this category will get 5 days Pro Subscription.
    4. High Gameplay- Players put in this category will get 7 days Pro Subscription. It is suggested that the MVP is chosen from players put in this category.
    5. Extreme High Gameplay- Players put in this category will get 15 days Pro Subscription. It is suggested that the MVP is chosen from players put in this category.
    The Game Manager is expected to give reasons for the placement of players in each category.

    Host Intervention
    • If a player gets mod-killed or mod-substituted for abysmal activity levels or rule breaking, then he/she should not be categorized at all. The player would as such get no prizes. The player will also get a strike.
    • However if a player is merely substituted or otherwise removed from play by explicit request to the host(s), then he/she can be categorized and will get prizes depending on the category they get.
    Most Valuable Player (MVP) Prize
    The MVP candidates should be taken from the "Extreme High" and "High" Gameplay categories. The MVP candidates should then be put for voting by players, the host and a few selected Game Managers. The MVP candidate that gets the highest votes will be declared the MVP of the game. If a tie happens, then a reserve Game Manager should cast a tiebreaker vote to break the tie.

    The Most Valuable Player will be awarded with the MVP Award: [​IMG].

    These rules apply to all games hosted under the Townies, Mafias and Assassins game section. It is mandatory for everyone to follow these rules.
  5. Rohan Guest


    The Game of Mafia can be played by an indeterminate group of people, each playing the role of either a murdering Mafia member or an innocent townsperson, along with a game host. The players are divided into two factions and must decide as a group who to exile (or lynch) from the group until only one team remains. Typically, the two teams are a relatively small Mafia group, and the much larger Town group.

    In the PreGame, the host distributes all roles in the game to the players and sets up the Mafia Lair where the Mafiso can talk. The Mafia members may have a small introductory conversation in the lair. The Mafia through the Mafia Lair become aware of who is on thier side and as such become informed. The Mafia are also in less numbers, hence they are the minority. The Mafia as such is the Informed Minority faction. The host then posts the Game Thread and mentions all the players for the Day Phase.

    Day Phase
    In the Day Phase, the Town tries to weed out the Mafia by lynching someone they suspect to be mafia through a collective voting process. The Town unlike the Mafia have no idea who is on their side. The Town also forms the majority by having the higher number of players. Hence the Town is the uniformed Majority Faction. The Town uses the lynch to eliminate players. The player with the most votes, the majority vote or chosen by the monarchy (depending on the lynch system used) gets lynched and dies. the lynched player's role then gets revealed and the Day Phase ends.

    Twilight Phase
    The Twilight Phase is a pseudo-phase between Day and Night. More specifically, it is the time period between the hammer vote that seals the Day's lynch and the time the moderator locks the thread for Night.

    Night Phase
    In the Night Phase, all discussion stops and the game thread is locked. The Mafia however are able to continue discussing because of their Mafia Lair chat. They then choose a player to kill and send their target to the host. The host announces the death scene and the role of the killed player when the Night Phase ends.

    The EndGame
    The Day Phase and the Night Phase keep on happening in a cyclic manner like this: Day Phase 1 - Night Phase 1 - Day Phase 2 - Night Phase 2 and so on until the EndGame. The EndGame marks the victory of one particular faction because that faction attained it's win condition. This marks the end of the game.
