    Welcome to A New Hope: Star Wars Mafia Game! We (choxorn and I) have worked our butts of on this, and we hope that everyone enjoys it. The game is as balanced as we can humanly attempt to make it (thank you askthepizzaguy for agreeing to look over everything to check for balance. :goodjob:)

    If you have any questions about anything pertaining to the game, feel free to ask me or choxorn your questions. If you have any questions or concerns about the game or Star Wars background information, feel free to consult the following:

    Unless your Ability specifically states otherwise, your abilities are Night actions.

    Send your private actions, such as your abilities, to choxorn. I (Zack) will handle the public side of the GMing.



    Spoiler Rules - Read them if you haven't already :
    Rules

    GAME PHASES
    The Game is divided into alternating DAY and NIGHT Phases. DAY is 48 hours long. Night is 24 hours long. The phases will not always be exactly that time length, since that is impossible. The length of the phases will be approximate.


    FACTIONS
    The vast majority of players will belong to a specific faction. The members of your faction are your teammates, not your enemies.


    STRENGTH
    Every player in the game has a strength stat. However, unlike most Mafia/NotW games on here, strength is based on a scale of 1 – 10 (as opposed to 1 – 5). So what does strength matter? It matters for night kills. If you are attacked at night, one of the following situations will take place (not considering abilities/items):

    Situation: Your strength is equal to your attacker’s strength.
    Result: You leave the fight unscathed.

    Situation: Your strength is 1+ lower than your attacker’s strength.
    Result: You die.


    If you are the attacker at night, one of the following situations will take place (not considering abilities/items):

    Situation: Your strength is greater than your victim’s strength.
    Result: You kill your victim.

    Situation: Your strength is equal to your victim’s strength.
    Result: You leave the fight without injury, but so does your victim.

    Situation: Your strength is 1 lower than your victim’s strength.
    Result: You are injured.

    Situation: Your strength is 2+ lower than your victim’s strength.
    Result: You die.


    Your strength will always be listed as: Base Strength (Effective Strength)


    ITEMS AND ABILITIES
    Players have items, abilities, and other effects usable to influence the game. For anything which is not passive, either choxorn or I must receive a PM at the appropriate time detailing your action. Item transfers will require consent of both players.


    INJURIES
    Players can be injured during night attacks (see: Strength) or because of an ability or item. When a player is injured, they cannot use any of their abilities. However, injured players can vote and use items. Injuries last until both a Day Phase and a Night Phase have passed.


    CREDITS AND INCOME
    Players have credits (money) and income is generated at the end of each Night Phase. Credits can be used to purchase items that are up for sale and to hire bounty hunters. Credits will be listed as: Credits (Income)


    BOUNTIES
    Any player may anonymously put up a bounty for another player. If you wish to put up a bounty, PM me or choxorn. If the bounty is claimed, then that person will attempt to kill the player. If they succeed, they will get paid by the player who put up the bounty (anonymously). The amount of credits a bounty is worth MUST be specified when it is put up. Anyone can put up a bounty, but not everyone can claim one unless your Role PM specifically states that you can.


    AUCTIONS
    A player can put an item up for auction, and other players may bid on the item. The item will go to the highest bidder. Anyone can bid on an item put up for auction. If your Role PM does not specifically state that you can put items up for auction, then you cannot. The highest bidder will pay the player who put the item up for auction. (This is all anonymous for the player that puts up the auction, and don’t worry, choxorn or I will automatically subtract or add the money.)


    LYNCHES
    Every player MUST vote during the Day Phase for a player to be lynched by the town. Votes must be bolded; retractions struck through. Voting is mandatory, and if you continue not voting, then you will be WOGed. A vote to Abstain counts as a vote. If Abstain receives the most votes, no one will be lynched.

    Support votes take away ½ of a lynch vote against a player, and will ALWAYS be rounded down (i.e. If someone has 5 lynch votes for them and 9 support votes for them, they will still be lynched).


    Role PM Format

    Character Name


    Faction Faction
    Abilities: Ability – Ability Description
    2nd Ability – 2nd Ability Description
    Items: Items
    Credits: Credits (Income)
    Strength: Base Strength (Effective Strength)
    Victory Condition: Victory Condition
    Personal Goal: Personal Goal

    Background Information


    Example:


    [size=”5”]Chuck Norris[/size]


    Faction: Texas
    Abilities: Roundhouse Kick – You can vigilante kill a player each night.
    Bulletproof – You are invincible.
    Items: Pistols – Infinite Strength
    Credits: ∞ (∞)
    Strength: 10 (∞)
    Victory Condition: Innocent
    Personal Goal: Kill every single mafia.

    You are Chuck Norris. You can do anything you want, because you're Chuck Norris and you can. Chuck Norris doesn't wear a bulletproof vest, bullets wear a Chuck Norris – proof vest. Unfortunately for the Mafia, they do not. So kill 'em all, Chuck!

    (Don't worry, your background information won't be this poorly written)


    VICTORIES AND GOALS
    Each player has a main Victory Condition and a Personal Goal in their Role PM. Keep in mind that while achieving both will earn you a total victory, your main Victory Condition is 60% of your victory, and your Personal Goal is only 30% of your victory. Survival to the end of the game is the final 10% of a player’s victory.

    There are 3 different main victory conditions in the game. Each player has only ONE of these three:
    Innocent: Eliminate all Mafia factions.
    Evil: Eliminate all innocents and other Mafia factions.
    Money: Have the most credits when either an Innocent or Evil victory condition is met.


    GENERAL RULES (copied from Earthling with minor adjustments)

    1) Be active and participate! You do yourself and everyone else a favor by contributing to the game. Communication with other players is key. Feel free to use the CFC PM system as well as other methods of communicating, such as e-mail or IM, if you wish. You may also set up your own QuickTopic, or you can have a GM (choxorn or I) set one up for you. Participating in a QuickTopic is entirely optional, but highly encouraged.
    2) Never quote, copy, paste, forfeit, or otherwise try to present anything sent to you from choxorn or I, the GMs. You may paraphrase information but you are strictly forbidden from directly quoting/forwarding PMs sent to you by a GM.
    3) Quoting, forwarding, etc… of communications from other players in the game IS PERMITTED. Be aware of how others may be trying to manipulate your information. But also, be reasonable to your fellow players and paraphrase when necessary.
    4) Players who are dead may post in the public thread and comment on already public information in a way that does not overly influence the living. They may not communicate novel information about themselves or others. The dead will otherwise comply will all instructions from the GM, including no other contact outside the game thread in any way with any living players or otherwise further participating in the game in an influential manner. Dead players may communicate with the GMs or other dead players, and dead players can feel free to send a GM your opinions, theories, etc. about the game.
    5) ALL players will be diligent in checking for PMs from the GM and following GM instructions before other actions- Especially with each Day/Night update. It would be unfortunate to see a situation where a player dies and has not read the PM telling them they are dead or something similar resulting in inappropriate game-thread posting. Dead players may be further informed of circumstances regarding what they are allowed to do/say – so everyone be careful you don’t get privileges like being able to comment at all while dead removed for everyone.
    6) Before each Game Update there may be a lockout period where posting is disallowed; it will be mentioned by a GM. Players are encouraged to avoid last minute posting/voting etc… if at all possible, though of course a GM will try to count everything before the time for a write-up cutoff. Note: Players MAY talk on the game-thread during the NIGHT PHASE of the Game, as the Rules stand currently.
    7) Roleplaying is encouraged in thread and outside of it too. And of course, you should chiefly aim to achieve your character’s goals and victories however you see best see fit. Try to avoid outside baggage and play within the spirit of the game.
    8) Abide by all Forum rules at all times.
    9) Always feel free to ask me or choxorn for clarifications on anything. We can’t promise every question will be answered, but if you ever feel we’ve made a mistake or need something made clearer, feel free to ask. This includes dead and living players.
    10) Don’t be afraid to think outside the box…and have fun and good luck!

    Night 0

    All of the residents of Lucasville stared in unbelief at the pool of blood covering the ground in front of them. After the citizens stood there, gazing at the mess for an unbelievably absurd amount of time, choxorn stepped forward toward the carnage. “Well, we won’t ever accomplish anything standing here glaring at this bloody mess. We need to find out who committed this horrible atrocity!” And the villagers all groaned as choxorn stooped down, stuck his finger in the puddle of blood, and scooped some up into his mouth. “Choxorn, you idiot!” they all cried at the seemingly idiotic choxorn. But they were all shocked when choxorn simply turned around. “Don’t get your various choices of clothing all in a bunch, its only ketchup!” The villagers all breathed a sigh of relief at the wonderful news. “Only ketchup, what were we thinking!” they exclaimed joyously to all who could hear. “We thought there had been a brutal murder! How silly of us!”

    Zack stepped forward and tried some of the ketchup. This made sense, since everyone in the village knew that Zack was very fond of ketchup. Their knowledge was confirmed when Zack informed them that the ketchup “Doesn’t taste too bad, either.”

    But then everything went downhill from there. Choxorn had a glazed look on his face, mumbling something about the ketchup being a lie. He then collapsed to the ground, his life ended. Choxorn (Deranged Psycho) was dead.

    Spoiler :
    The Deranged Psycho was innocent!
    Spoiler :
    He was a member of the Idiot faction!

    Then Zack also fell to the ground, a look of horror frozen on his handsome face. Zack (Ketchup Lover) was dead!

    Spoiler :
    The Ketchup Lover was innocent!
    Spoiler :
    He was a member of the Idiot faction!

    Spoiler :
    The Idiot faction has been eliminated!


    The villagers started to flee in terror toward the safe refuge of the Lucas Cantina, where accusations started to fly back and forth.



    It is now DAY ONE. Day will end in approximately 52 hours.

    Income has been generated!
    Lynch votes in Bold.
    Support votes in Green.

    Sorry if this wasn't made clear, but unlike Earthling's game, you may only lynch during the day.

    Unless you have day abilities, of course.

    That sounds even more disgusting.

    I vote we make contact with the planet Earth and steal some of their cows.

    It's a trap!

    (You think it means you win the game, but actually you wind up dead immediately on receipt of the PM. Namely, you get chucked into the Bantha pit.)
