Love Boat [Mafia] |OT| Till Death Do Us Part

Amount of players: 30 (= 15 pairs)
Crab Scale of Complexity: 5/10
Game Mod: Burbeting

There once was a gigantic amusement park in an unspecified location in Planet Earth. The park was quite popular indeed, but one of the attractions was mostly abandoned from usage completely. This attraction, was of course the Tunnel of Love, where lovers would get onto a Love Boat, which would then carry them through a Tunnel filled with absolutely romantic things.

Alas, in this day and age, love is not the hottest new theme for amusement park rides, so the Love Tunnel was mostly abandoned. This came to a change however, as one day, fifteen couples filled with love made their way to the tunnel entrance, holding hands and whispering all sorts of loving things for each other. Then suddenly, a strange figure appeared before the lovers. It was… a bear…



”Welcome to the Love Tunnel! I am Burbeting, the caretaker of this Tunnel, and also your guide! I can sense wondrous sense of love coming from most of you! I just know most of you people have truly find your special other!”

The loving couples looked at each other and sighed as loudly as typical lovers could. However, it seemed that the caretaker had not completely finished.

”However… I sense that one or more of the pairs do not emit any sort of love…. I almost could call them loveless couples… What a travesty! Only true love can come into my Love Tunnel! But… I have no idea which one of you couples are the loveless, and who are not…”

After a short moment of silence, and people muttering to each other, the bear started to walk towards the Tunnel itself. He snapped his fingers, and then suddenly the swan-boats started to move in the water into the Tunnel. With a short sigh, the caretaker looked at the fifteen swan-boats that moved quite slowly.

”Ah well, it will be a long ride anyway. Might as well let you lovers figure out who the Loveless couples are. I’m way too old for that. Also do remember, that pairs always die together...”

Example Ordinary PM:

“It’s true, oh it’s true!
It is so, so true!
What is?
The Amazing, Pure and Unrivaled love between [REDACTED] and [REDACTED], of course!

Who cared where you two originally met? It could have been in a cinema, or in a café, or maybe just in the internet. What matters is that you two love each other most dearly, with absolutely no restraints. It will be just a question of time, until you two get married, have children and grow old together!

But first, you will embark on a great quest… quest to journey through the Love Tunnel with many other lovely couples… well obviously you guys are the most lovely, but that’s beside the point!”

----

You are partnered with [REDACTED]

You and your pair’s shared role is Ordinary Pair of Lovers. You are Aligned with LOVE (That means TOWN).

This means, that neither of you have any special powers. But you guys can vote!

Also, as you are a Pair of Lovers, you will get an private Lovers Chat in the Outer Gafia to use for communication to each other. Remember, that if one of you dies, your pair will die with you.

Your Lover’s chat is here: [REDACTED]

The Game thread is here:

You will win, if everyone, who is aligned with the LOVELESS, are defeated!

---

Example of typical Lover Chat Opening Post:

Welcome to your private lover chat!

You may use this chat during either day or night phases. Please treat this chat as if it was PM conversation, aka. Please dont't directly quote anything posted in here!

May Love always reign!

SPECIAL RULES (At the very least, read this one)
X.1. This Game is a Pair Game, aka. every single player is paired up with another player. These two players share their role and alignment, and have access to their own private "Lover Chat", just like typical lovers would do in games.
X.2. If you die in the game, your pair dies with you, and vice versa. So in a sense, the two halves of the pair are treated like a one player.
X.3. All players have individual votes, so you do not need to vote with your pair. However, when you vote for a pair, you need to just vote for one player of said pair. For example, if Burbeting and Ourobolus were a pair, you would vote them with VOTE: Burbeting, or VOTE: Ourobolus. It's adviced to vote for the first player of said pair mentioned in the Opening Post to make everyones life easier. Otherwise normal rules about voting apply.
X.4. If a player wants to drop out, or they are modkilled, their role is not revealed. This is to give their pair a chance to continue to play a game. If a replacement is found, said replacement is automatically put as a new partner to the player, whose pair had dropped out. However, if the modkill happened because the player directly quoted their role PM, both halves of the pair have to be modkilled, so please do not directly quote your role PM in any circumstances.
X.5. Use only your lover chat to privately communicate with your pair about the game, so that game mod can moderate the conversations.

X.6. In short, this is a 30 player game, but said 30 players are paired up into 15 pairs, so the game design otherwise is treated as if it was a 15 player game.

Fundamental
1. All site-wide rules are also applicable here. Please do not tarnish this community.
2. Unless your Role PM explicitly allows you to do otherwise, discussion about this game is strictly confined to this thread.
3. Unless your role PM explicitly allows you to do otherwise, do not quote or posts screen-shots of any PMs or posts that were not made in this thread. Obviously this is a grey area, but please try and play sportingly.
4. Within reason, you are allowed to lie about any game material or game-related conversations that could conceivably have appeared outside this thread [such as the content of role PMs or private chats allowed by a role]. If unsure whether a lie is reasonable, please ask the game-runner.
5. Do not refer or discuss to player activity in other forum threads or life in general beyond the game.
6. The player list includes the preferred personal pronoun of each player. Please try to use the correct pronoun.
7. Please be nice to your fellow players. Mafia can be a tense experience, and occasionally aggressive play is useful, but remember this is game and that everyone should have fun.

Activity and Deadlines
8. Treat this game as a commitment. Remember that other players' fun is dependent on your participation; this game only works if you remain reasonably active.
9. If you do not post in this thread at least once per Day Phase period without prior permission, you will be sent a PM requesting you respond immediately (a "prod"). If you do not respond to a prod by the end of the following Night Phase, you will be replaced.
10. If you need an extended period of absence for some other issues in life, please notify the game-runner by PM in advance. Leave of up to one Day and Night Phase (seven days) is possible.
11. If you expect to be unable to post for a period of 7 days, please notify the game-runner by PM so that you can be replaced in good time - we're sad to see you go, but other players need to be able to continue to play.
12. Each Day Phase will last 4 days. Day Phases officially begin when the game-runner notifies players in the game thread, and end exactly 96 hours later (by NeoGAF post time-stamps).
13. Each Night phase will last 3 days. Night Phases officially begin when the game-runner notifies players in the game thread, and end exactly 72 hours later (by NeoGAF post time-stamps).
14. If a Phase ends and the game-runner has not received an action PM from a player with a relevant action, then that Phase will end with that that player making no action.
14.1 In the event of a day ending with no player having a plurality of the votes, then the game will proceed to the next night phase with nobody lynched ("no-lynch").
15. If a replacement is needed, they may PM the game-runner once to request the Night Phase in which they join is extended by up to 2 days, to allow catch-up time.
16. Game-runners may change the length of Phases at their discretion. However, they will inform players at the start of the equivalent Phase before (i.e., if Day 7 is set to be shortened, players will be told no later than the start of Day 6).

Voting, Lynching, and Death
17. For your vote to count, it must be presented in the following format: VOTE: pairhalf1 or VOTE: pairhalf2, via use of the highlight tag. It must also be in an entirely separate line from any other text.
18. To remove a vote from a player, you must present in the following format: UNVOTE, via use of the highlight tag. It must also be in an entirely separate line from any other text. It is not necessary to unvote before casting new vote for a different player; unvoting is simply to remove a vote without casting a new one.
19. Players may use VOTE: No Lynch to end the Day Phase without a lynch ("No Lynch"). It must also be in an entirely separate line from any other text.
20. Please make sure your votes are spelled correctly - we are using an automated voting count tool and it is necessary that votes are spelled properly.
21. Once someone has received a majority of the available votes, the day ends with the Lynch of that player or a No Lynch (whichever applies). Once this has happened, any further votes or unvotes that Phase will not be counted, and the Night Phase will begin shortly.
22. Some roles take place between the end of the Day Phase and the start of the Night Phase, so game-runners may allow a short period of time for this "Twilight Phase". Unless your role PM explicitly allows you to do otherwise, do not post during the Twilight Phase.
23. Once you are dead, you are dead: you may no longer discuss the game in ANY manner with ANY of the remaining players. Dead players may PM the game-runner one last message for the other players (a "Will"), which the game-runner will post on their behalf in the thread. The sole condition is that it contains NO game-relevant information, e.g. "Thanks guys for an excellent game!" is allowed, "My partner was John!" is not.

The Dead Thread
24. To allow dead players to freely discuss the game with other dead players, a secret thread hast been created at Outer Gafia.
25. On death, a player will receive access to their game's Dead thread. At this point, they may request access to the dead thread for the other Season 4 games, or they may join the replacement list for the other games. They may not do both. If a player opted to join the replacement list, they may change their mind, but players who have a link to the other Dead Threads cannot act as replacements.
26. The Dead Thread will also be made available to non-players, provided they have played in at least one GAF mafia game before in which they did not go inactive. These non-players will also be disbarred from the replacement list.

Other
27. Outside of votes and explicit allowances made by role PMs, the use of the highlight tag is strictly the game-runner's prerogative. Do not use it.
28. Do not edit your posts. If you are a repeat offender, a replacement will be sought.
29. Do not use the email tags to hide extra content in your posts.
30. A list of the votes so far (a "Vote Count") can be requested by contacting any game-runner or game-tutor. There will also be a link in post three to the current count, when it is available.
31. Game-runners reserve the right to add, remove, or modify existing any rules at any point, and enforcement may be applied retrospectively. However, all players will be informed of changes, and changes will be consistent across games.
32. In general, do not try and exploit loop-holes in the rules.
33. Completed GAF games are often read by people thinking of signing up in the future. As such, please keep your avatar spoiler free - it should not allude to your role or alignment.

Some Game Specifics:

I allow self-voting (But do remember you have a pair as well).
Strict majority system is in place, so 50% of the votes + 1 (For example, during D1 majority is 16 votes)
I may shorten day/night phases later when player count decreases.
Don’t post in this thread after a Day has ended, even if I haven’t posted the lynch results yet. There may be roles that act during Dusk.
Please take into consideration that other players are just human beings as well as you are.
Remember to Love.

Burbeting: Just to clarify on voting, the order we list them in should be the same as on your player list right? Since you're using the tool and all, I wanna make sure that there's some precedent established so we don't have to tally together votes for: P1 & P2 and P2 & P1 as separate entries.

Yeah, the order you need to list the players while voting is the same order they are put in the Opening Post.

I don't wanna decide this without my partner's input so we'll get back to you on what we decide prior to the game's start.

Nobody gets to pick their OWN couple name. That would just be weird. Instead, all of your friends are supposed to get a bit tipsy and pick the one they find most amusing.
