Epistemology
iˌpistəˈmäləjē
noun - The theory of knowledge, especially with regard to its methods, validity, and scope.

This is epistemology mafia. Unlike most mafia games, you will not only be deducing information within the parameters of the game, but deducing information about the parameters of the game. I will give you incomplete information, but I will not lie to you. The rules are simple enough: There are 12 players and 3 or more factions. Each player belongs to some number of factions. When all the players from a faction are killed, the faction is eliminated. When only 2 factions remain, the game ends, and anyone still alive is declared a winner. During the day, players may communicate with each other through the thread, or via private messages. You are not obligated, or even recommended to be honest about anything in either the thread or private messages, although you are forbidden from using meta-game information, such as screenshots of PMs from other players or myself. During every day except the first, players vote on someone to lynch. The person with the most votes is lynched, and the game moves to night time. In addition to their faction, each player has up to one role. This role grants them some abilities, many of which can be used to gather additional information about the game, and some of which are used during the night, although I won't go into the specifics.

Update: day/night rules


This epistemology mafia game comes with a new theme, new factions, and new powers! I've decided not to include any roles with posting restrictions, or any pure survivor roles, since those played out poorly last time.

1: 15377
2: KoD
3: Shockwave
4: Rubik
5: Neosilk
6: Hello World
7: Rag
8: Argh
9: Niklor
10: Fable
11: Mown
12: Zinger

Day 1 begins now, and ends in 48 hours. There's no lynching on day 1 though. Future days will last 72 hours.

Let's open up negotiations.

Neo, Rag, you both talked before I did. Let's form a council of nations. Our goal: A peaceful world. Savvy?

In other news I am lacking in the friend department. I need friends. Who wants to be my friend?

You know, traditional Mafia the Cop is a big threat to the scum team who will likely be killed quick.

But this ain't traditional Mafia, and in fact I think it works in all teams best interests to keep the cop alive as long as possible, given the setup.

So I'm just gun a go out and say I'm a cop variant and let you guys chew on that.

@Neo:

Well, it doesn't have to be peace I suppose, although I don't know what other noble goals we'd pursue. I suppose war against our enemies is a thing.


@Zinger:

That's at thing. Just don't be a bad cop. Good cops are much preferred.

EBWOP:

If Rag isn't in on the council of nations thing, we could always use a cop's perspective instead. I'll wait and see what Rag says. What do you think Neo? Cop on the council a good thing if Rag declines to join up?

Thanks for the game Cato. Hope I don't make you modkill me again this time.

Also, since questions aren't expressly forbidden, I'm a ask: is there anything you can or will tell us if we ask you the right questions?

World Tensions are on the rise, it seems. I blame the big blue blob, personally. Those bastards always stirring up trouble.
