General Discussion / Let's Talk About Books, Baby
« on: March 04, 2019, 06:15:48 pm »
Just a thread for book recommendations.  Maybe we can get real crazy and start a forum book club someday?  Today is not that day, for me at least.  I've apparently been jamming on series lately and below are a few I really enjoyed.

  • The Hatching Series - Ezekiel Boone (three books, about spiders, horror, suspense, easy read but good writing)
  • The Passage Series - Justin Cronin (three books, about zombie vampires? he doesn't go into super detail which is part of what makes this extra creepy, our minds are always more terrifying than anything that can be written down)
  • The Dark Tower Series - Stephen King (eight books, different for King, kind of a modern/futuristic/apocalyptic Western, incredibly moving, I absolutely cried at the last book, don't you judge me)
  • Immortality & Chaos Series, Chaos & Retribution Series, Ace Lone Wolf Series - Eric T. Knight (5, 6 and 4 books, respectively, the Chaos books are medieval fantasy and just suck you right in, the Ace series is kind of campy Western-ish, reminds me of a standard detective novel but with a different flavor)

Forum Games / Drunk Mafia VI: Phoenix
« on: February 04, 2019, 10:59:52 pm »
We're aiming for anytime after 9pm CST February 15th and before 4am CST February 17th.  I have no idea what that means in forum time.  Sign-ups are open 1-2 hours prior to game start, set-up will be determined by number of players but we'll need at least three.  shraeye and raerae will be playing/modding/spectating.

Rules:
Mostly normal stuff.  Drinking encouraged though never required.  Swearing required though never encouraged.  Don't make it personal.  Superblitz style.  Speccy is game thread but spectators are only allowed to heckle, not allowed to discuss the game. 

Background:
This might be the first, second, and fourth game? - http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=7134.0    http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=9043.0
This is another game - http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=11270.0
Here's a time it almost happened, if I can remember why I wanted that information maybe we can make that setup happen - http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=9619.0

Setups:
We have a setup we'll run if we get 4 players and a standard 7 person we can run as well.  If we get 8+ we'll present an option in thread or just post rules and start.  In the meantime, here's a survey for some of the 5, 6, and 7 player setups we're considering.

Mafia Game Threads / DM5-1: Too Drunk to Karaoke
« on: October 16, 2013, 09:58:35 pm »
Bonus points if you're a fan of the title because you know what the title is and didn't have to google it and know that there is a much better title I should have picked but didn't because it isn't exactly PG-rated.

But if you're like most of this crowd and you're clueless as to my ramblings and just want to play some mafia, here's the game plan:

1.  Sign up
2.  Let me know your availability
3.  This is VERY important:  please list your favorite animal AND color (as you WILL NOT be eligible to play without this information)

Rules and such will be listed when they've been developed.  Don't let me know if you have questions yet; we'll get to that later.

Hi guys, I have some super awesome news that I wanted to share with my online friends (and I'm fully aware of how lamesauce that sounds) and I was looking for the right place to do it.  I thought about the Random Stuff thread but then thought, I bet other people have good news they'd like to share sometimes too so...this thread has now been born.  I'm thinking fun and exciting things like graduations, new puppies, exciting moves, etc.  Super excited to hear about your good stuffs!

Mafia Game Threads / Mafia XXV: Mean Girls (Fourth Quarter)
« on: April 29, 2013, 11:24:26 pm »
Welcome to M. A. Fia High!

Mods: raerae, shraeye, Kooshie

Basic Mafia Ruleset

The Golden Rule:

Please remember that this is a game and your main objective is to have fun! Be considerate of each other, don’t get personal, and enjoy the game.  Mods will not tolerate any jamhoovalin’ and are not afraid of a mod-expulsion or replacement based on attitude.  Play nice or be prepared to be expelled.

Game Rules:

General Gameplay and Etiquette:
1. You may not quote private Moderator-supplied information. Anybody caught claiming or hinting at flavor name will be mod-expelled and, depending on alignment, the game will either go immediately to night or the next day will start with no night phase.
2. There is to be NO personal communication outside of the forum postings unless your role PM specifically allows it.  Mafia members may communicate at night.
3. If you have a role with a Night action your choices are due to all mods by the posted deadline (generally 48 hours from Night start during the first few Nights; later Nights may have shorter deadlines).  If we do not receive your PM by the posted deadline you will forfeit your actions.  In case of multiple submissions, the last valid one before the deadline will be used.
4. Roles with Night actions will not be able to submit an action on Night 0 (i.e. during the confirmation stage).
5. Any player with a Night action may instead submit a “No Action” PM to let the Mods know that you do not want to perform your expected action that Night phase.
6. As a general rule you should aim for one post every 24 hours, minimum, to keep the game moving.

Voting, Deadlines, and Player Transfers:
1. A simple majority (rounded up) of all living members must agree on one person for a forced transfer to occur prior to deadline.
2. Once you have reached a simple majority no further unvoting will change someone’s fate.  Further votes will also be ignored.
3. Once a player has transferred, the game enters twilight until I post an expulsion scene; all players including the one who transferred may continue to post during twilight.
4. Please submit votes as: Vote: PlayerName.  Votes will NOT be counted if they are not bold or do not follow this syntax!  Obvious abbreviations or nicknames will be counted so long as they are unambiguous.
5. Please submit vote revocations as either Unvote: PlayerName or Unvote. Unvotes are not necessary before changing votes.
6. You may Vote: No Lynch - a simple majority of these vote types are required to send the game to Night phase without a transfer.
7. Once you are expelled (either via forced transfer or night expulsion) you may no longer post in the game or in Quicktopics, except for twilight.  This means that you do not even get a “Bah” post. The dead in this game are silent, but will be invited to the Spectator Quicktopic.
8. Do not edit or delete posts.  We don't want some players having more information than others.  If you want to clarify posts, feel free to double post.
9.  This game will have 12 day days and 48 hour nights.

Miscellaneous/Mechanics:
1. Bold, colored text is reserved for the Mod.  No invisible/small text is allowed, nor is cryptography.
2. If you have an issue/problem with the game, please PM the Mods privately.  Do not post issues/complaints in the game thread.
3. The Mods may make mistakes - please point out any mistakes gently.  Mistakes will be corrected where possible, but sometimes mistakes are made that cannot be reversed.  These will stand as final to be commiserated over after the game.
4. Please bold all requests to the Mods so that they don’t get missed.
5. Prods of missing players will be issued automatically after 48 hours of no activity or upon request after 24 hours of no activity.  A prodded player has 48 hours to respond or risks replacement.  A player who has been prodded 3 times is subject to replacement without further notice.
6. Rule violations will be dealt with according to their severity, up to and including a Mod-expulsion.
7. If you anticipate being unavailable for more than a 48-hour period please post a notice to that effect in the thread.  Treat this game as a commitment.  Be considerate – don’t leave us hanging.

Helpful Links:
TO CLARIFY, I AM NOT A MODERATOR OF F.DS IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM.  IN THE CONTEXT OF THIS GAME, I AM MODERATING THAT THE RULES ARE FOLLOWED AND HIDDEN ACTIONS ARE COMPLETED PROPERLY.

Set-up Info:

Game set-up (mostly) closed.  This is a twelve player game and mafia will be allowed to pick their partners.  There will be three rounds of PMs pre-game and each player will receive one PM per round.  Once again, anybody who hints at or claims their flavor name, will be mod-expelled.

Mods will refer to lynches as “forced transfers” and kills as “expulsions.”  However, we will accept any reasonable terminology from the students.

Mafia = Plastics
Town = Student-Body
Mods = Flippin’ Awesome
