Game State Tracker:

The Rules:

The Golden Rule:
This is a game. Everyone who signs up to play must be considerate of each other, never get personal, and focus on having fun. Once the game starts, having signed up is a commitment: inactivity is just as inconsiderate as rude comments.


The Standard Rules:
1. No communication between players outside of the game thread or shared QTs at any time. This includes passing references, jokes, or cases in other games or threads, whether in context or not.
2. If the game thread is locked, do not post. If you are unsure if something is locked, ask the mod by PM.
3. Direct or verbatim quoting of mod-provided information is strictly forbidden. Paraphrasing is okay. If you are not sure about your paraphrase, ask the mod first.
4. Actions with instructions that do not specify a game state will be resolved in the order they are received.
5. All night actions must be submitted within 24 hours of day ending.
6. Players must post once every 24 hours.
7. Do not edit or delete posts, ever, in either the game thread or QTs. If you need to clarify or correct something, post again.
8. Invisible text, font size less than 10, and spoiler tags are not allowed.
9. Cryptography is not allowed.
10. The time between an exile being decided and a flip being provided is called twilight. All players may continue posting during this time, including the exiled player.
11. Players removed from the game via Exile or Night Action may not post in the thread or QTs, except their personal QT. A player is not "removed" until a flip has been provided.
12. Personal multimedia, such as video or audio recordings, are not allowed in the game thread or QTs.

The Voting Rules:
1. Votes should be in this format: Vote: Playername. Unambiguous nicknames are acceptable.
2. Unvotes should be in this format: unvote or Unvote: Playername.
3. Unvotes are not required if changing your vote from one player to another.
4. You may vote: no exile.
5. Exiles occur when a simple majority (rounded up) of living players is reached. Once reached, an exile cannot be undone by unvoting or voting to exile another player.
6. Exile rules vary by the number of players alive.  With 10 or more players alive, the player with the most votes at the end of the day will be exiled.  Ties are broken by coin flip.  With nine or less players alive, if a majority exile is not reached by the deadline, no exile occurs.

The Rest:
1. Bold, maroon text is reserved for the Mod. Players may not use it.
2. If you have an issue or problem with the game, please PM the Mod. Do not post complaints in the game thread.
3. Mods make mistakes - please point them out gently. If they can be corrected, they will. If irreversible, they will stand as final to be commiserated over after the game.
4. If a mod error disadvantages one faction greatly, the game may be called off.
5. Ask all questions and make all requests directly to the Mod via PM or in your Role QT. Questions deemed as "universal" (defined as questions for which the answers should be available to all players) will be requested to be re-posted in the Game Thread and answered there.  You may also bold questions to the Mod directly in the game thread.
6. One prod will be issued after 36 hours without posting in the game thread. Players are subject to replacement or modkill after one prod.
7. All rule violations will be dealt with according to their severity, as determined by the mod, up to modkill.

Deadlines:
1. Days will last 7 IRL days.
2. Nights will last no longer than 48 IRL hours.

Reserved for Setup Information.

Known Factions:
The Tau'ri are guaranteed to be a faction in this game.
The Asgard are guaranteed to not be a faction in this game.

Items:
Items exist in the game and may be interacted with in various ways.  Some items will be public, while others will be private.  Some verbs that will be applicable to one or more items include, in alphabetical order: hide, pick up, steal, use.  Any verb may be applied to any item, but no more than once per game phase.

Item Actions:
Give. At any time during the game, you may give an item you possess to another player.  During the day, you must do this in the game thread.  During the night, you must do this in your personal QT.  Use the format Give: Item to Player.

Flavor names:
If a flavor name is provided that has an entry in the wiki, all players may assume that the information in that wiki applies to the game version of that flavor character.  For example, if Lt. Gen. George S. Hammond were in the game, he would be Tau'ri-aligned.  If Apophis were in the game, he would not be Tau'ri-aligned.  If Apophis were to take Hammond as his host...

I'm interested if it's reasonably sized.

I'd likely play, but of course I would need some more information to decide for sure.

Size is partially why I'm gauging interest.  I can do 12 or 16 players.

Good to know, I'll keep that in mind if I ever decide to start modding games.

Interested, but probably wouldn't play if it overlaps with the BSG series, because overcommitment.

I think there will be some gaps for other games in between the BSG series. I don't want to block any other games from taking place, so I'll probably leave 1-2 month intervals in between games.

I am 100% in... as long as I am not in BSG and modding Momento at the time of launch :P
