"It was yet another beautiful day in the Black&White Lands. The Chess kingdoms had finally agreed on a truce that bloomed an era of peace and prosperity under the reign of the royal families.

But nothing lasts forever. In an abrupt attack, strange flat, pointy, two-faced creatures appeared. And they seemed ready for war."

Welcome! to:

2023 edition

(sorry if the letters are illegible on your forum theme lmfao)

Non-Setup Rules:
Forum Rules also apply here. Make sure to try following pretty much the entirety of the community's rules for a healthy game experience. If you're unsure whether or not something is allowed you should definitely ask an authority of the subforum, or even me, to avoid potential issues with the staff, or with other members/Players.

• I'll ask for all the Players who signed up to be active, and I'll consistently prod them every now and then if I notice a drop in activity. An average of one game relevant message every real-life day (24h) is the bare minimum I expect (so 3 messages in each 72h cycle). There's some subjectivity to this regarding how much content you had in your messages or how busy you have been though, and as such each case will be judged individually. If you feel like you haven't been able to participate in the game, please request to get subbed out. An inactivity that lasts a whole Cycle (1 in-game Day and 1 in-game Night will result in either replacement, pausing of the game, or modkill; as well as me being less likely to accept the user in future games I might host.

• Do not break any of the following unless explicitly allowed by the host in your Role PM:
> Do not talk about the game with Players outside of the thread (regardless of any of them being alive or not, replaced or not) or any other people that might potentially join or interact with it later on. If you get any privileged information about the game, please leave or avoid joining it.​
> Do not screenshot, directly quote, or copypaste any forms of communication between the hosts or the Players outside of the chat. Regardless of it being fake or not. Any mention/paraphrase of unnecessary host communication might be arbitrarily confirmed/debunked as a form to punish you for doing so, so please avoid trying to use them.​

• As the host it might be necessary to add or remove rules to prevent undesired events from happening at any point, and will do so if I notice any sort of loopholes that might compromise the game; in case these alterations happen I'll announce it both privately and publicly to make sure everyone is aware of it.

• Keep in mind that breaking any of the rules will have repercussions both inside the game and outside of the game. Have fun!

Setup Rules:
Please know your Mafia/Werewolf basics. If you still have any questions feel free to ask me or the MoD @TheCapsFan

• Game will be made to fit 13p. Anyone that joins sign ups past that maximum amount will be put into a Sub List for emergency replacements. If the first Player to die under normal circumstances is Town, and it happened during the first Day Phase, I'll allow them to join the Sub List with priority if they want to.

• Setup will be closed, with the existing roles being unknown to any parties. Role information shows up upon death under normal circumstances.

• Game will be divided in two Main Phases: 48h Day Phases (two real-life days) and 24h Night Phases (one real-life day). Night talking is allowed.

• Regarding votes:
> Please bold and put your votes in separate lines. Other forms of identification like underlining, italicizing, or different colors, are strongly appreciated. I mean it. I'll buy you a puppy and gold foiled ice cream if you do stuff like this.​
> Tied votes between Players will result in a random Lynch between the tied parties.​
> Voting for "No Lynch" is allowed. A tie between "No Lynch" and a Player will prioritize "No Lynch". Keep in mind this would normally allow Mafia to control the votes as soon as they reach Parity, but that this might not be enough to satisfy their wincon.​
> Hammer will require Supermajority (66.67% rounded down + 1) unless requested otherwise.​

• MyLo and Lylo will not be announced. This is not only due to them giving information about roles; but also because there are differences in interpretations of these terms between hosts, so to avoid confusion it will not be announced.

• This game will have flavor, as such, it is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN TO CLAIM CHARACTERS. You're free to claim your role or what it does.

The Host is also part of the game, voting and targeting them is allowed, although the results might not be what you expect.

this sounds like a really interesting game turning chess into mafia
It will be interesting to see how each piece is worked into a role
this sounds like a really interesting game turning chess into mafia
you can turn anything into mafia honestly
it will mainly be flavor but it will have roles and gimmicks inspired by chess
I'll have to update the posts but the flavor will be pieces from Japanese Chess (Shogi) as mafia :swirlix:

the original idea was a better adaptation of chess into a sort of mafia game with black and white teams but it required more players (18p) and was extremely hard to balance, so this will be a bit more modest
but if yall manage to get the 18p I can swap it for the other setup
Please tell me your original idea wasn’t to have the mafia team as the black pieces
... I have done this before (did not even consider THAT kind of implication, just cuz they go second, and town lynches first)

Prolly means that it would make fake claiming incredibly easy.
Please tell me your original idea wasn’t to have the mafia team as the black pieces
original idea was two town factions (black and white) and mafia
town roles would only work on pieces of the same town faction, and after the mafia threat was removed the town faction with most pieces/players remaining would win

not gonna be the case here cuz we're a bit limited in size but I'd like to run this version in the future
