    Often times people will give up their motives without realizing it by just talking! So the quick to vote, or no vote in this case, gives a bit too much of a knee-jerk reaction for me to be comfortable with. We have 48 hrs in the day! Plenty of time to discuss and yet, people are quick to stop using the one tool we have and just hands-up it.

    Dude. I've literally never done this before. The only mafia I ever played was irl and you could never lynch anyone before the first murder. Sorry if I can't play the game right.

    Oh goodness, don't get upset. I'm not making a slight against you personally. I'm just overly suspicious of everyone!

    I'm not. I'm just used to slightly different rules. And now that's made me suspicious, which is fair enough.

    That's not how mafia is played, lol. You always have the option to not lynch.

    So potentially random lynching an innocent town based off of zero evidence and complete guesswork is a good idea?

    Chances are you're not going to just randomly guess who the mafia is with a day one lynch. D1 lynches are incredibly dumb if you're playing town.

    Please stop telling people the way they play games is wrong. It's just different than your experience.

    Whatever anyone says, no the end Karifean makes the rules here. Whether we like them or not, they are what they are.

    I never said that the way they play games is "wrong." Please don't put words in my mouth.

    I said that it isn't how mafia is played, because it isn't. Traditional mafia games always have the option to vote no-lynch during day phase, regardless if it is Day 1 or 10. The way things may have been done here isn't wrong, but it isn't traditional nor is it the way mafia is normally played.

    Not complaining, just saying that I (and probably a few others) will have to rethink how to play to take into account the fact that we have the option of a No Lynch scenario.

    It does add a little bit of strategy to the game. You usually don't want to lynch anyone until there's enough info or reason to do so, and nothing is really concrete on day 1.

    Sometimes you don't even want to lynch in later day phases. It all depends.

    Oh flipping heck I thought we moved passed the whole 'let's discuss how we all play Mafia differently' topic. Just let people be people. Let people make perceived errors or mistakes. Let people reveal all, or keep their cards close to their chest. For some people, this is their first time playing Mafia, so let's not bombard them with rule variations and alterations that might confuse them.

    As far as I'm concerned, the rules Karifean posted are the rules of Mafia until this game is over.

    Some people prefer playing with No Death, others like to omit No Death. Well whatever, because we're playing with No Death and I'm open to new ways of playing Mafia. I've never had it so you could choose not to kill someone, so that's interesting.

    As far as I'm concerned, everyone is just as suspicious as each other, but that also means I don't really suspect anyone either above the rest of the bunch. So for what it's worth:

    ##VOTE: No Death

    I can't wait until the Night Phase has started so we'll actually have stuff to talk about during the day.


    Aww, I was rather enjoying the circular conversations.

    Hush you.

    Anyway, by my count, that is 3 votes for No Death. 5 is the Lock-down Point.

    Fynn, Fox and Formalhaut have all voted for No Death. Which is a damn fine alliteration there if I do say so myself.

    Like Shauna, I haven't a care what the rule is. Mafia is fun, traditional or non-traditional! Sorry if I sounded terse in my previous post, it's just I've already heard this argument before and don't want Day 1 to just descend to discussions on rules.

    It'll be interesting. The only two Mafia games I've played have been on EoFF, with the omission of No Death. What usually happened in these games at Day One is an inactive character who didn't post would get lynched, which is as close to 'No Death' as you'll get without actually lynching someone of import.

    This being the first time I played, and people seem to think I have every ability for asking questions as I read the rules on the first post...

    ##Vote: No Death
