Voting link is here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... sp=sf_link

Rules are here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-re ... vKlA/edit#

Notable changes from previous games:
- Succubus exists, Hunter doesn't
- Poison doesn't exist
- Scheme doesn't have an exception if there is only one mafia left
- Priest failure works like manipulate the press, and notably doesn't affect other priests
- Innocent children must reveal in person
- Ties result in a random town-aligned player being executed if one exists, otherwise a random player
- "Freeze" is an incant that mafia can use once per game. Its intent is to allow mafia to make a kill where the victim would otherwise paranoia text or run away.
- "Spotted" rules to prevent kills from disrupting classes / official events

Other things that have changed:
- You are NOT required to identify yourself if asked. However, you must honestly answer if you are playing.
- You CAN fake incants via tapping anything/anyone that is not a living player. Basically, everyone should be 100% clear about what incant has/hasn't been used on themself, but people don't need to be 100% clear on what incants have been used on other people.
- Day 0 will start immediately after kickoff. Any game actions except kills may also be taken on day 0 (AKA petitions, incants, item transfers). Basically, this means that kickoff is a great time to do game things with the players you might not see that often!

So the correct strategy is for mafia to use a Mafia Tent.

You should give the dino suit to gods so they can give it to the mafia

Game is relatively small, so the following changes to the rules have been implemented:
- desperadoes, gay knights, and succubus targets only get one investigation
- succubi may not be trapped if they have seduced a mafia
- investigations are Monty Hall investigations (priests, gay knights, and succubus targets remain as normal investigations)
- manipulate the press and frame a townsperson are not in the game

Assuming that game size stays at the 17 people, there will be 2 mafia, a conscript, a serial killer, and no use of scheme.

- Monty Hall group investigator results are random among the innocent players, right?

- When you use Freeze, can the target use their phone, or make loud grunting noises, or something?

Yes, Monty Hall group investigator works the way it does in the previous mystery game (though frame doesn't exist).

The target of "freeze" cannot do anything that counts as moving (aside from what is necessary out of game to be safe). Using a phone and grunting are movement.

Rules changes/clarifications following kickoff
-Group investigator isn't actually monty hall
- If person X is seduced by Y, and then later person X is conscripted, mafia CAN set a trap Y as succubus.
- "Disarm" is an optional incant for mafia to use
- Kill announcements on forums will be at least 15 minutes after the death occurs
- The rules about faking incants have been clarified. You can't fake line of sight incants, and "I'm an innocent child and I trust you" is a line of sight incant. Again, it should never be unclear to a TARGET whether or not they have been incanted on; you can only deceive OBSERVERS.

What are line of sight incants?

"Tase," "Freeze," and "I'm an innocent child and I trust you." These are the incants where you just need to be able to see someone to use them, rather than having to tap the person.

Scheme isn't in game though so this is irrelevant?
