At the threshold of a chasm between mountain ranges dividing the inner kingdoms and the outlands sat a large prosperous town. Like many of the towns in the area, it was overseen by a mayor, elected every year by the townsfolk. The town tended to stay out of the larger kingdoms politics, preferring peace and tranquility. Also like several of the independent towns it had rather unique quirks. The identity of the mayor remained a mystery to all except a shadowy group of Mayoral Aides and the current Mayor themselves. Ballots were submitted in secret, tallied by the mute aide team, and then later officiated through the same team. Even after their terms, the former mayor's identity was kept secret. The same mayor might be elected for several years in a row, some may have been called into duty with out even realizing they were a candidate. It is well believe that a few decades ago, the town was managed by a small dog or possibly a rather large cat.
The wealth and strange governance led to some odd habits. Nearly every job was triplicated, one for each phase of the working day: Morning, Afternoon and Evening to ensure fair and unbiased results could be obtained. This tended to result in well thought out laws, diligent correct Accounts and low unemployment. On the other hand, attempting to order a sandwich around noon could become a difficulty, and the town skipped past several stages of art to arrive exclusively on post-modern.
We observe at this time, the Threshold citizen was worried about the expanse of conflict from neighboring realms, and all attention turns to what the new (or possibly returning ) mayor would do.
Standard Phalla rules apply: Everyday players will vote in the thread for who should be the village kill of the day. The name must be in bold and red
. The player with the most votes at the end of the day will be killed (see Special Rules for Tie breaks).
The game will end when one set of End Game conditions is met. Players that satisfy their victory conditions at the end will be considered to have "won". There is a village
and there is a mafia

Every citizen player will vote via PM with host(s) for whom they want to be mayor in the event of the current mayor getting killed. Among the mayors special powers, their vote determines the target for any tied village vote (non-voting mayors are assumed to vote for themselves).
Some powers or abilities may break some of the listed rules and will be done so explicitly. If you are unsure please contact the host(s).
Everyone will be assigned a role and a faction. Roles will detail what special actions or abilities players may use, the faction will detail personal Victory and End Game conditions.
There is no standard role. Some roles will be duplicated.
Roles and Victory conditions may change as the game progresses.
