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 (including QT opening and closing times) is strictly forbidden. Paraphrasing is okay.
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 36 hours of day ending.
6. Players must post once every 24 hours.
7. Do not edit or delete posts, ever. 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 reached and a flip being provided is called twilight. All players may continue posting during this time, including the exiled player.
11. Dead players may not post in thread or QT, except their Role QT. An exiled player is not "dead" until a flip has been provided.
12. Personal multimedia, such as video or audio recordings, are not allowed in the game thread.

The Voting Rules:
1. Votes should be in this format: Vote: Playername. Unambigiuous nicknames are acceptable, or any string that uniquely identifies a user. Note that the point of voting is, in fact, unambiguity, and attempting to make it unclear to other players (or, of course, mods) which user you are voting for is very ill-advised.
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.
6. If a majority lynch is not reached by the Day's deadline, no lynch occurs.

The Rest:
1. Bold, Brown and/or Purple text are reserved for the MODs. 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. 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.
6. Players may request prods on other players if they have not posted in 24 hours. 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.
8. Each player will receive their own QT, regardless of role. Don't quote from it.
9. If the game goes on for 3 days and 3 nights without a lynch or nightkill, town wins.

Deadlines:
1. Days will last seven IRL days.
2. Nights will last between 36 and 48 hours.

I have worries that having half the players be unable to do anything for half the game might negatively impact overall activity.

Is it known who's in each timeline from the start? That seems like a trivial thing to test, and seems extremely important to how the day phase works.

Do timelines swap around each end of night, or is it unknown when they do?

"    a.   During the Day, all players alive may post as usual in the game thread. However, only the players on the Active Timeline will be allowed to vote or use PRs.
    b.   Additionally, players will only be allowed to vote for players on the Active Timeline."

So half on the players will never be able to vote for the other half? Because if X can only vote while on the Active Timeline and can only vote for the others on said timeline, then X can never vote for someone on the other timeline.

Timeline announcement is trivial. But It will be announced start of Day 1.

Set up states "timelines run Start of day to end of that Night phase"

Let's just call this a PSA - It is a closed set up, so I cannot promise that I can answer everything. However, I can promise that any concerns regarding balance, or just standard mechanics, have been thought through.

Absolutely not promising it all won't go to hell :P but I am confident that the game will be fun, and I know LL and I have gone through and changed stuff ten times over to make sure the set up works and is fair.

So pretty much - if you have questions, please ask, I will answer what I can. I will probably just be ignoring most of the comments regarding the set up however until the game is concluded. Everything you need to know is in the OP.

Yes. Active only is for the “user”, the target can be anyone. The only targeting restriction is regarding voting.
