Some stories never die
Tales of heroism and compassion
No one cries for the vanquished
Those cretins that would defile the land of Termina
But stories are written by the victors
And when magic controls the flow of time
Stories can be rewritten
A huge thanks to romanqwerty, for invaluable suggestions and guidance
Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen, to another round of Phalla

by posting in bold lime green or some other bright color. Registration is limited to the first 40 players, but please reserve if it fills up, as I will be culling inactive with a vengeance. Standard rules apply. Some rules that I remember because I've posted them in previous games:
- No communication (about this game) between living players and dead players.
- No using screenshots or other methods to verify information as being given by the host.
- No speaking in code or languages unknown to all participants (apparently mods get in a huff about this).
- Do not add people to conversations. Proboards seem to be a kind of exception to this rule, so recognize that if you accept an invitation to a proboard, your conversations could be shown to future entrants.
- NO EDITING VOTE POSTS
This game has some similarities to a mini that I ran.
Most notably, very few people will be permanently eliminated from this game. Most deaths are instead temporary (and thus will not result in a role reveal). If you are dead, but not eliminated, all the rules of the dead still apply.
That means dead players cannot post in thread, PM other players, or post on proboards.
Unless specifically contradicted in your role PM, if time is reset, your health is restored and you will be brought back to life, so long as your role has not been revealed in narration. However, it would be dangerous to assume that this mechanic applies to all dead people
as it did in the mini. Hopefully all the other terrible stuff was removed. The white blood cell mechanic was completely scrapped in favor of a more traditional HP system. Also, no conversions.
Every day you must vote in bold red
for someone to be eliminated permanently
. You may not vote for dead players, even if they have not yet been eliminated.
You may, however, use your actions on them if you so desire unless otherwise stated
. Players voted out of the game are eliminated and not subject to revival. Failure to submit a valid vote will result in a mark of inactivus. Two marks of inactivus will result in your replacement or elimination. If there are 5 or more reserves, players will be replaced after one day of inactivity.
Sample Village PM:
You are a: Generic monster
Victory Condition: Kill Link
before he can stop Majora's
Anyone with an amount in the "Damage" spot can attack any other player for that much damage, unless an alternative mechanic is listed in your role PM.
Mafia Victory Condition:
Victory condition: Find and destroy Majora’s Mask before the moon crashes to the ground at the end of the third day.
The earliest this will start is Tuesday, 5/29 (with the first deadline being Wednesday 5/30) if we fill up by then. Vote close will be every day at 11PM Eastern (3AM GMT). All votes must be in by this deadline as defined by vanilla forums. Actions are not due until five (5) minutes after the vote deadline.
The action deadline is therefore 11:05 PM EDT.
Include me in any proboards or other outside-of-forum communication you engage in. You don’t need to include me in PMs, but if you’d like to, I do enjoy watching the behind-the-scenes networking. Feel free to ask any clarifying questions in thread in bold dark orange
or by private message. Once role PMs are out, any private clarifications that are not about your specific abilities, or stuff mentioned in this post will be denied. I may answer the exact same question if it is asked publicly.
I will say up front that there are no conversions, and no vote manipulation. Clarifications about the existence of other powers not specifically listed above will almost surely be denied. I hope you have fun!
Order of actions: Vote -> Everything else roughly simultaneously
