Author Topic: Rysith's Semi-Bastard Mod Mafia (Game over, LASD and Vector win!)  (Read 31910 times)

Let's get started with the questions, shall we?

1) What do you mean, semi-bastard mod?
The setup that I've got is for 13 players. If there isn't enough interest I can shrink that, but all the balancing has been done with those thirteen roles in mind.

2) How many players?
Read the thread title: January 11th

3) When will it start?
If in a normal mafia everyone knows the rules and the mod is always straightforward, and in a Bastard Mod mafia the mod purposefully lies and nobody knows the rules, a semi-bastard mod mafia is one where some people know some of the rules, and the mod will be flexible with the way things are even if he endeavors to always provide at least a grain of truth. Thus, the town (and mafia) will have to deduce what's going on enough to accomplish their respective goals, without the full-blown mod-wifom of a bastard mod.

4) How long will days be?
No PMs, no hammers. Obviously, given the gametype I can't reveal how many are town/mafia/third party, since that would be telling.

5) Is this how you'll be answering things in-game?
I'm fine with some flexibility in the day deadlines, but would think that in the absence of heated discussion there would only be a single 24-hour extension by popular demand. I'd like to keep the times firm in the absence of almost everyone saying that they want more or less time.

6) Will there be any day extensions?
In the spirit, certainly. Confusing, but solvable. The actual game, of course, will be a bit less transparent than these. If you pay attention, you might even get some hints pre-game.

7) Can you give us any more information?
Days will last 72 hours, nights will last 24 hours. Weekend time counts for half time. Night actions that are not submitted will be assumed nothing rather than delaying the game.


I hope that that answers everything. If you've got more questions, feel free to ask them below, and go ahead and sign up. What have you got to lose?

Joining.

Quick question: Do you plan to implement a system similar to Dakarian's, with 'flexible' deadlines.

Rather, can we vote to 'extend' or 'shorten' the day, or are the times rigidly locked in place?

I laughed at the FAQ. Is that supposed to represent how the game will be handled in-topic on your part (basically, is that how you'll be answering questions)?

I shall join this shindig.

The answers go to the wrong questions. It makes sense if you reorganize the questions.

In.

That's why I laughed. But I, unlike RW0, didn't feel like saying what was "wrong" with it, as I didn't want to ruin the joke for anybody else.

In, if I may? I think I'm probably ready to play a real game without being an annoyance.

I cannot read the FAQ without giggling childishly.

I'm afraid I need to drop out of this. Irritating computer problems.

I'm sorry to hear that, Nirur. With luck, they'll be sorted out before the game actually starts and you can rejoin.

Six slots remain, the game will begin in just under a week.

Thanks to Vector, I'm in.

However it doesn't promise good that like Shades it took me four answers to get the jist of the OP.
