    Welcome, all! If you wish to be a reserve, here is the sign-ups thread. As of game start, we unfortunately have no reserves. TVTropes would be sad.

    In this post will be the Rules, refer to Posts #2 and #3 for the lists of updates and players.

    RULES

    1. Phases
    2. Factions
    3. Combat
    4. Credits and Income
    5. Auctions
    6. Transfers
    7. Bounties
    8. Private Communication
    9. Death
    10. Replacements and WoG
    11. Behaviour
    12. Rule Amendments
    13. Update Postponements
    14. GM Recommendations

    Phases
    The game is divided into Day and Night phases.
    Day lasts for 48 hours. Night lasts for 24 hours. Both are approximate times, we'll try to do it as close as possible.

    During the Day, players vote to lynch one among your number. Ties result in the 'winner' being determined by away goals golden goal a penalty shootout a coin toss.
    Vote in the required format, vote: Takhisis. Unvoting, though not strictly necessary, will be of great help to the poor sod trying to make a sense of what you post. Do so by striking through your vote, thus: Arakhor or by explicitly unvoting, unvote: Arakhor. Or both.
    You may not edit your post if it contains a vote. Editing posts to correct grammar, spelling, or to avoid double-posting is fine. Do not touch your votes except in a new post. Any edited post containing a vote in it is declared invalid and will be counted as an Abstain.
    You're allowed to Abstain from voting on any candidate, but you are not allowed to vote for No Lynch.
    True reveals will happen after death.

    During both Night and Day, players send me their night orders, if they have any. This includes Bounties.

    Factions
    The Mafia factions intend on the elimination of all the Town people (sometimes inaccurately referred to as the "Innocents"), and each other, while the Town seeks its own survival.
    Neutrals have Victory conditions of their own. The Wealth Victory condition means that that person has to be the richest person alive at the end of the game. There are various means to acquire money.

    Combat
    All characters who can attack someone may use either a weapon or the Force. Your target will defend with either a weapon of the Force, whichever is more advantageous.
    • If you have equal power/weapon when attacking or attacked, you are injured. If you are injured again without having healed, you are killed.
    • If you have greater power when attacking, your target is killed.
    • If you have lesser power, they are unhurt and you are injured.
    Force ratings:
    Master>Knight>Novice>None​
    Weapons ratings:
    Lightsabre>Blaster weapons>Melee>unarmed​

    Credits and Income
    Credits are the currency of the game. The number to the left in your Role PM is your starting amount of credits, and the number between parentheses is your income: how much will be added to your bank account at the end of each Night Phase.

    Auctions
    Auctions will be carried out in the Day Phase by an item being posted by the GMs with a base price, highest bid wins. Republic credits are the only currency acceptable.

    Transfers
    Money and items can be transferred freely, whether by Night or by Day. The orders may be sent at any moment during the phase, but the transfer will happen at the end of said phase. You cannot use a transferred item(s) in that Phase, it will not be counted as in your possession for whtever effects it may have.

    Bounties
    Any player may put a price on someone's head. This may be done by sending the GM an order with the name of the player and the price. At the end of that phase, the money will be deducted from the player's account and held in store, and the price will become known to interested parties.

    Private Communication
    You may use Private Messages, Visitor Messages or Instant messaging to coomunicate with each other.
    You may not send another player a copy (complete or parcial) of any communication between you and the GMs. You may paraphrase if that suits you. ¹
    If the GMs have given you a QuickTopic, you are not allowed to give its URL away. We will know and we will sanction you.

    Death
    You are not allowed to post or participate in any other way after death, dead players may not continue to post game-related information in private either, and living players are forbidden from engaging in game-related communication with dead players. Due to the reserve shortage (we somehow got just the 40 players for the 40 planned roles) we might ask the dead players to step in as replacements. WoGed people will not be asked to step in as replacements.
    Players are either alive or dead, there is no middle ground.

    Replacements and WoG
    Players will be killed off arbitrarily by the GMs (a.k.a. WoG) or replaced if considered necessary, either because of inactivity or rule breaking. Misbehaviour (see below) also may be a reason for either.

    Edit, 19-08-2012: Since we have no replacements left, and people still insist on being inactive, from Day Nine onwards we'll consider non-voters to be injured.

    Behaviour
    Don't be an asstard. Respect the rules.
    Keep your off-game stuff off-game. No political arguments, please.
    Do not insult other players. Don't be a bad loser or a bad winner. Accept that your teammates may make mistakes, that sometimes the Random Number Gods may turn against you, that the GMs may make mistakes², and, also, that you may just have been hoodwinked by another player in a colossal way³.

    Rule Amendments

    Not even the GMs are perfect, and this is a rather complex game, so if we (the GMs) feel there's a need to change a rule, or if we realise we've set an ability or effect contrary to what was issued at the gamestart PMs, accept it. We'll always strive for balance and won't do things after determining with due consideration that it is strictly necessary to do so.
    Of course, scheiße happens, as a great GM would say.

    Which brings us to our last point for now…

    Update postponements
    If the GMs have good reason to postpone an announcement we will try to announce it beforehand, sometimes you might only find out when there's no update at the scheduled time.





    GM Recommendation: You should check out the Star Wars Wiki, although some things have been edited for the game to be playable, so don't take everything there literally.
    I've tried to add links to all the players' characters in their Role PMs, but I know I've missed some. Look up your character in the Wiki or other sources!

    This game is not supposed to stick literally to canon.

    _______________________________________
    (1) *Takes a peek at Zack's rules* no screenshots either.
    (2) Gasp!
    (3) Which has never ever happened to you before of course.

    Beginning of the game

    Takhisis whistled happily as he settled onto his chair.

    He started up the computer, got himself some biscuits and a cup of tea, and started rummaging around the pile of garbage around the desk until he found what he was looking for: an old game CD. he hadn't played in so long! He put the CD and watched the nearly forgotten intro play. Then he suddenly realised he was supposed to do something -of course! He picked up his cat and gave his good friend a kipper. Now hat everything was ready, he could begin playing… the Knights of the Old Republic! Strangely enough, it didn't seem to be playing out exactly as it was supposed to… just in case, he decided, he should keep a log.


    It is now Day One. It will last for 46 Hours. Vote for a player to be lynched in bold. There are no items to be auctioned today.

    Beign the first day, a player will be lynched if and only if he or she has the votes of at least half of the total roster.

    You may now post!

    Thanks, I've fixed them!

    btw, it's very impressive for Zack to have been phirst in both the signups thread and this one - should have made it his PG.

    Hey, if the game has a credits system, can we wager on whether bestrfcplayer will turn up/when he gets wogged?

    Question Tak, don't think it will compromise the game if you answer. Is Revan a dude or a gal?

    Well, people can run illegal books, but the Arakhor 3000 banking system will still have to be informed of the transactions. Also, bestrfcplayer has sent a read receipt, so he might appear.

    x-post edit: Read the Wiki!

    Yeah, but Star Wars canon is bollox. Your Revan may have been a wench, Arakhor's may have been one too, SWTOR mentions that Revan's sex is not known, so I don't think it's set in stone.

    Anyway: This game is not supposed to stick literally to canon.

    Don't you read your own OP?

    The players are supposed to read the OP, not the GMs. Sheesh, man, priorities!
