    Backstabbed
    :backstab:

    Introduction

    Spoiler backstory :

    Forumville, the sleepy :sleep: little town found near the bottom of the CFC forums, had been quiet for ages. Nothing had roused the rest of the town for a while; in fact, it was generally believed that no evil force still stirred in Forumville. :D How could anything rouse the quiet solitude of Forumville? The Smilies lived in relative peace; although on occasion they got into quarrels... :spank: :splat:

    Topsecret, who had left Forumville to travel for a while, returned home. But when he walked in the door, he was shocked to discover someone waiting for him.

    "Who are you?" Topsecret demanded.

    The strange figure shrugged. "Irrelevant. The question is, 'What are you?'. And the answer is, 'Dead.'"

    Topsecret turned to run, but it was too late. With a quick stab...

    :backstab:

    He hit the ground, instantly dead.

    Topsecret has been killed!
    Spoiler :
    He was Old! :old:

    Spoiler :
    He was Destined to Die!


    ---

    The smilies in Forumville gathered around Topsecret's house.

    One smilie, Cry :cry:, said, "He just got back. How sad."

    Gripe, :gripe: a rather vocal member of the community, spoke up. "I told you this would happen. Too many months of not playing Mafia inevitably leads to new hosts being murdered. It's like I said last week..."

    King :king:, the ruler of Forumville, interrupted. "That's enough, you all. I won't stand for all this complaining and boo-hooing. Either we are going to take a stand against this force, or we are going to go back to ignoring the evil around us. We all know that the mafia has lurked among us for far too long."

    "What do you say?"


    Sign-Up List :deal:

    I am trying to do a small game; however, I am well aware of the lack of games and do not expect a massive influx. If we have to, we will do a mini-game.

    (Rules)
    :king:

    Spoiler :
    I. Obey the Forumville regulations. :salute:
    Spoiler :
    (A) Adhere to the Forum Rules. This is required.


    II. Once you say something, it cannot be unsaid. :think:
    Spoiler :
    (A) Do not edit your posts. If you edit a post, any votes in it are invalid and ignored.


    III. Time is set in stone. You must abide by it. :coffee:
    Spoiler :
    (A) This game has 2 phases: Day and Night.
    (B) Day is 48 hours, and Night is 24 hours.
    (C) During the day, vote for who you think is guilty.
    (D) During the Night, any and all people with Night actions should PM them to me.
    (E) You are allowed to talk in-thread at night.


    IV. Secrets may not be copied. :gripe:
    Spoiler :
    (A) You cannot take images of your Role PM, etc. However, you may paraphrase your role. You can "quote" your role... but don't believe everything you read.
    (B) You may make your own QuickTopics, but you must send me the link.
    (C) You may talk to another player via PM; Do not break the rules while communicating.
    (D) I, as GM, reserve the right to remove anyone from the game if they try to break these rules.


    V. The guilty shall be voted for. :dubious:
    Spoiler :
    (A) Votes should be cast in the Vote: topsecret format. Unvotes are not required, though obviously allowed. Unvoting without a new vote counts as Abstain.
    (B) Abstain and No Lynch are both allowed.
    (C) Feel free to point out any mistakes in tally you think I've made. That doesn't mean something else might be affecting them, though...


    VI. Know your role. Use your role. :cool:
    Spoiler :
    (A) Smilie Mafia includes:
    - Good Smilies (Innocents)
    - Bad Smilies (Mafia)
    - Mysterious Smilies (???)
    (B) Everyone will receive a role PM. However, some players will not have a night action from their role.
    (C) Any and all abilities you start with are in your Role PM.
    --- Just because you do not start with an ability does not mean you cannot receive one through empowerment. (See rule VIII.)
    (D) To use an ability, send me a PM with your target.
    (E) You may or may not receive a result PM for your night action.


    VII. Work to achieve victory. :trophy:
    Spoiler :
    (A) The Good Smilies victory condition is as follows:
    - Eliminate any hostile threats to the peace of Forumville.
    (B) Bad and Mysterious Smilies have different victory conditions.


    VIII. Gain power to help your team. :borg:
    Spoiler :
    (A) Even if you are a "vanilla" smilie, you are able to gain empowerments.
    (B) Every day, during the day phase, I will post one smilie or icon. This one-use power will be granted to the player who receives the most votes.
    (C) In case of a tie, no player receives the power.
    (D) The winner will receive an empowerment PM detailing their one-use power. It is like a regular night action, but may only be used once. If you use an empowerment, you cannot use one of your other night actions.
    (E) Empowerments are saved until used or until the player dies. On death, the empowerment is lost.


    IX. A dead smilie is... dead. :popcorn:
    Spoiler :
    (A) When you're dead, you may make one BAH! comment. Otherwise, please stay quiet. Do not PM other living smilies (about the game).
    (B) Dead players will receive a QT link.


    X. Don't get replaced. :sleep:
    Spoiler :
    (A) I will replace inactive players as I see fit. This is all left to the host's discretion.
    (B) If you wish to be replaced, let me know in thread or by PM, and I will try to find you a replacement.
    (C) Please be active. It kills the experience of the other players if you're not.


    XI. The mayor can pass laws anytime he wishes. :hammer:
    Spoiler :
    (A) I reserve the right to, at any time, change one, some, or all of these rules simultaneously if I believe that it is necessary to the game.
    (B) Hopefully, a rule change is not required. Nevertheless, I will be as fair as possible if one must occur.



    If someone has questions, PM them to me.
    Most importantly, have fun!

    I have sent out invites to some players on the old invite list, although many of them aren't online anymore. If you know anyone to invite, go for it.

    I'll vouch for a quantifiable portion of that statement, but not in its absolute entirety.
    I never posted frequently enough to notice.

    "Newly registered members may not use signatures, e-mail forum members, post visitor messages, use the private messaging system or join or create social groups, until they have been members for 5 days AND have at least 5 posts." - From the rules

    You cannot receive messages for 5 days (but I don't know when we are starting - should be the end of this week/beginning of next), but you might be able to get an admin to remove the restrictions if you politely ask here.

    I don't do polite really well, but I do play confused pretty convincingly.

    Gave it a shot; thanks for the heads up!
