I'm going to tell you all a story, a story of my life. A story how a movie changed my life.

As many people around my age I had no idea what to do with my life. I tried several things but could find anything that made me feel "complete". Something was missing from my life, a hole that couldn't be filled. I wandered thought life as it had no meaning. But, when I was least expecting it, something changed my life.

One day like any other day I decided to go see a movie. I didn't mind which movie. It could be any movie as I wasn't paying anyway. All I wanted was a little entertainment in my boring life but I got much more of what I wanted. That movie changed my point of view and gave a new goal to my life. The movie was DEADPOOL.

The amazing Deadpool. This is the greatest movie ever, it has everything: comedy, action, romance, Ryan Reynolds taking things up in his ass. An instant movie classic. It also gave me something I wanted to be in the future: A mutant.

It seems that mutants are fictional, so there was no way I could be a mutant. Fuck, plan 1 failed before I started. So goal 2 should be instead: A mercenary. Let's say it didn't worked also. I can't give any details, as I made a pledge to take it to the grave. So goal 3 instead should be: A comic book writer.

My new goal in life would be writing Deadpool comics. With that goal in mind I send my CV to a big comic company to land a job. To my surprise, even when I don't have any experience writing comics (I don't even have experience reading comics), I scored the job. I was going to be a new comic writer in DC Comics.

It seems that DC Comics doesn't own Deadpool. Fuck. But I'm a positive person so I decided to make the best out of it. I decided to make a Deadpool comic nevertheless. The lawyers at DC weren't very happy about it and gave that idea the thumps down. I then offered them to make a comic called DeathTool, a funny mercenary with an amazing healing ability who usually breaks the fourth wall. They said they were going to think about it. Never heard about it again from them. Finally they said that I should work in a comic book named Batman.

I don't know anything about this Batman guy but I know for certain that I don't want to write about him. My life was in ruins again. My happiness was slipping away. But then I had the greatest idea ever: I could just kill that goddamn Batman and DC would be forced to allow me to write the DeathTool comic. As everyone know, once a comic character dies he isn't coming back.

So all my life is in your hands. You are my beloved Villains. I will write the setting and give all of you plenty of opportunities. Now you just need to kill the Bat. I'm a grateful person so I'm even willing to offer a reward: Just kill the Bat and I will invite all of you pizza. Just no pineapple pizza. That's horrible, my god.

Just kill the Bat and all his horrible family and I can finally have a goal in life again.

Please.

Kill the Bat.

Please note, that few rules have changed from Season 7.

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 10 times 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 (five 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 3 days. Day Phases officially begin when the game-runner notifies players in the game thread, and end exactly 72 hours later (by NeoGAF post time-stamps).
13. Each Night phase will last 2 days. Night Phases officially begin when the game-runner notifies players in the game thread, and end exactly 48 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.
15. 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").
16. 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.
17. 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 no later than the start of Day 6).

Voting, Lynching, and Death
18. For your vote to count, it must be presented in the following format: VOTE: playername, via use of the highlight tag. It must also be in an entirely separate line from any other text.
19. To remove a vote from a player, you must present in the following format: UNVOTE: playername, 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.
20. 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.
21. Misspelt votes will be accepted within reason; if the game-runner is unsure they will notify you and in the meanwhile discount the vote. Votes in broken tags will not count.
22. Once someone has received a strict majority (>50%) 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.
23. 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.
24. 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
25. To allow dead players to freely discuss the game with other dead players, a secret thread will be created.
26. On death, a player can either opt to join the replacement list, or receive a link to the Dead Thread. 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 Dead Thread cannot act as replacements.
27. 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
28. 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.
29. You may not put any active players in this game on your ignore list. If you have an active player on your ignore list, please remove them. Obviously this is on the honor system, but please don't do it, or joke about doing it.
30. Do not edit your posts. If you are a repeat offender, a replacement will be sought.
31. Do not use the email tags to hide extra content in your posts.
32. A list of the votes so far (a "Vote Count") can be requested by contacting any game-runner or game-tutor.
33. Game-runners reserve the right to add, remove, or modify existing any rules at any point, and enforcement may be applied retroactively. However, all players will be informed of changes, and changes will be consistent across games.
34. In general, do not try and exploit loop-holes in the rules.
35. 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.
36. I will accept Night Actions up to two hour before the Day starts. Missing actions will be decided at Moderator’s discretion.

This game will suck.

It will probably not have a last minute day 1 override. Or dumb jokes replacing votes. Or Karkador making up a batcomputer out of freaking nowhere. Or scum becoming extremely salty at the mod because of a certain power. Or Batman accidentally tying the vote causing a guaranteed scum lynch to become a no lynch and town losing the game that way. Tss, why even play at that point?
