HATEFUL, your last post has been removed due to containing meta-information about a role PM. Stating the number of words in your PM is a way to glean meta-information that is based on details of the wording of one's PM, rather than their actions or words. As such, it is considered to be host-quoting.

Because this is a time-sensitive issue and Rainboy seems to be offline, I have temporarily taken the matter into my own hands and suspended the post. If Rainboy allows your post, I will re-instate it without any questions. Until the host makes a decision on the issue, however, I would strongly advise players to stay away from this tactic, as it is considered against the rules in most cases.

I highly advise Rainboy to release a public version of all PMs, or at least the normal villager role PM (as I usually do in open games to avoid this very situation).



Note: I have not seen any PMs from this game, so I do not know if the information contained in Ultor's post was factual or if he was joking. I have acted only in the interest in preventing a possible breach of the rules.

Oh yeah, well my role PM has 155,749 words in it! And it doesn't really seem to describe a role in our mafia game. And it gets kinda vulgar at points. Actually really descriptively, lewdly vulgar at points. Actually, I think this is just the book Fifty Shades of Grey. I'm not sure how to feel about this...

After some thought, I have decided that Ultor's role is tainted. Anyone who saw the post and who is also a villager would know his role, and anyone who saw Hater's censored quote would be able to assume with reasonable certainty that Ultor was at least not mafia.

I have a strong urge to modkill him, since he should definitely know better than to pull a stunt like that. However, instead of writing the ticket, I'm going to give the lecture:

As Hater alluded to, the host quoting rule is designed to prevent any meta information from outside sources from influencing the game. Since the host is all knowing, any game related discussions he carries on are tainted by his knowledge, especially in private where he is free to address players as the role they have. Players are free to paraphrase the information contained in host communications because it is information that their character would know if all of this was real - however, anything that abuses the mechanics governing the delivery, maintenance or availability of that information must be hidden, lest it leak into the game world and taint it, as Ultor has done here. As proof that they have read this paragraph, I will require that Ultor and Maki both send me a PM containing their working definition (eg, not the official one) of what the host quoting rule means to them. If they fail to, I will modkill them at the end of R0.

Speaking of R0, I'm sorry to do this, but the only two options I see to keep a clean game at this point are a reroll or a modkill. I am inclined to give Ultor a second chance, so I am going to reroll. My apologies for the inconvenience.

For the record, the old roles were:
Don - UnwaveringGrey
Godfather - Maki
Hitman - Larah
Doctor - Karn
Deputy - Styx
Vigilante - Patrick
Villager - HATEFUL
Villager - Six
Villager - Cruxell
Villager - Dee Dee
Villager - Blaze
Villager - Lawliet


Needless to say, I will not hesitate to modkill if host quoting becomes a problem again. You all know better, and I will treat any further infractions, however small, as willful and intentional rule breaking.


Finally, Cerdric had mentioned that he wanted to play and asked me to poke him if Boswell wasn't a thing. I tried to poke him, but I think my phone was out of service at the time. I have added him to the game; as with the previous players, he has been added in inactive state and will be modkilled if he does not post by the end of R0.

R0 will last until Saturday the 19th, at 1AM EST. Note that this is Friday night for west coast US people, and early Saturday morning for pretty much everyone else. All further rounds will resume their 9PM EST deadline.

Again, I apologize for the inconvenience, especially to those of you who had a PR.

NOPE is the Don, YEA RIGHT is the Framer or Godfather, and LOLNO is the Consort or Hitman.

Within the next 24 hours, I need you guys to give me an R0 shot and role selections for YEA RIGHT and LOLNO. If I don't hear anything, I will give random roles and there will be no shot.

Roles have been sent out. R0 begins now.

And may God have mercy on the poor soul who thinks they can mess with my game this time around.

*shrug* another game that takes way too long to starts and gets messed up due to idiotic stuff, count me out. It's a shame that it's never ever possible to properly play a game lately.
