Wiki Mafia is a version of Town of Salem that includes roles from the original Town of Salem game, along with the Coven expansion, Forum Mafia roles, and the Testing Grounds roles. Keep in mind that not all of these roles are used, or ever will be, and some of them may be removed and added as time goes on.
The basics of this game do not differ from Town of Salem. However, there will still be a few changes.
Phases will each last a certain number of days, depending on how long the moderator wants them to be.
The discussion and voting phases are merged together into the “day phase”. Lynching will be much different. Rather than defense and judgement phases, the player will instantly die once the votes reach majority, and the day will end.
Scumreading will be very important. Scumreading is the process of searching for evils in the way players talk and act in many different situations. For information on scumreading and how to do it, follow this link.
Any players may choose to become replacements or spectators. Replacements can take any living player's place if they go inactive or wish to leave the game partway through.
1. All typical Town of Salem and Discord rules apply to all Wiki Mafia games.
2. The moderator's word and rules are law. No exceptions. If the moderator's rules conflict with the rules on this page, the moderator's rules take priority, unless they are deemed unrealistic.
3. Whether or not someone is breaking a rule is decided by the moderator.
4. Be respectful to all players. Remember, this is just a game. Name-calling, insulting, or otherwise is prohibited. Light swearing is allowed.
5. Gamethrowing is prohibited. Gamethrowing is purposefully working against your win condition to allow someone else to win when you or your faction still have a chance to win the game.
6. Metagaming is prohibited. This includes discussing anything about the game outside of the server or outside of the day chat. This also includes any other outside influences or resources, such as bribes, threats, plans, unfair information, etc.
7. Giving examples of past games of any type to reference of a player’s typical behavior is allowed.
8. Signals are allowed, such as "when I say 'x', I mean 'y' happened". However, any sort of hidden message that requires the use of codes, encryption, or a cipher to understand/read is prohibited.
9. The use of resources or information unrelated to the game and outside of the main thread in order to gain an advantage is prohibited, such as, but not limited to: cryptography software or images with hidden text.
10. Quoting, screenshotting, and/or posting any messages received directly from the moderator in your personal channel is prohibited. Quoting and posting night results is allowed.
11. Editing messages is prohibited. Editing a message to fix a spelling error or other minor mistake is allowed.
12. When quoting the moderator or another player, editing the message for misleading purposes is prohibited. Editing the message to remove irrelevant information is allowed.
13. Unnecessary spamming is prohibited. Spamming is allowed when you are "ranting" about the game, with or without other players.
14. Posting images or gifs is allowed in moderation.
15. The use of alternate accounts is prohibited. If alternate accounts are found to be used, both accounts will be punished.
16. Pretending to break any rule is treated as if you broke that rule.
17. Lying to the moderator to take advantage of them and/or any rules is prohibited.
18. English is the only language allowed. Some non-English use is okay (such as the occasional “Hola Townies” or “Bonjour”).
19. If a player breaks a major rule (metagaming, gamethrowing, taking advantage of the rules, etc.), or consistently breaks multiple rules after being warned, (spamming constantly, being disrespectful, heavily editing messages, etc.) they will be immediately replaced.
20. A player who constantly replaces out for any numbers of reasons may still be punished.
21. All questions about the game can be asked in your personal channel or the moderator's private messages in Discord.
1. Inactive players may be prodded after a certain amount of time of inactivity, decided by the moderator. They will be replaced if activity does not increase. If a player would be prodded a second time, they will automatically be replaced.
2. Inactivity timers will not be going in the night phases, unless a player who has a night action does nothing. This rule is negated for that night if the player specifically states that they wish to do nothing.
3. Posting irrelevant or unimportant messages as a way to reset your inactivity timer will not reset it. The post(s) must be relevant and generally viewed as moving the discussion forward, asking questions, etc.
4. Players may willingly replace out if they know they will be inactive for any of amount of time. You must tell the moderator in your personal channel that you are replacing out. You do not need to give a reason why.
5. If a player has died, they may not replace back in for another player in the same game.
Breaking any of the above rules may result in a ban. More serious rule-breaking may skip certain offenses. Continuous rule-breaking (breaking a rule, becoming unbanned, then breaking another rule) may skip certain offenses. Players may also be banned for more than three months rather than for forever. This is all according to the moderator's discretion.
First Offense: The player will be unable to join or replace into the next Wiki Mafia game.
Second Offense: The player will be unable to join or replace into the next two Wiki Mafia games.
Third Offense: The player will be unable to join or replace into the next three Wiki Mafia games.
Fourth Offense: The player will be permanently banned from all future Wiki Mafia games.
Appealing From A Ban
If you were banned, there IS a way to appeal.
First, you must find a person that witnessed the event that resulted in you being banned. This person must be a player or spectator from the game in question. If they are willing, they will become your second.
Second, you must speak to your moderator personally. It may also be wise to bring one or more Wiki Mafia Admins into the appeal. This is most easily done in Discord. Both you and your second must use fair points/reasons to appeal your ban. Then it is up to your moderator (and possibly the Wiki Mafia Admins) to decide whether or not the ban will be appealed.
If the appeal is accepted, then congratulations, you are no longer banned. However, if your ban is not appealed (or not FULLY appealed), then you must respect the decision of the admins and wait out the rest of the ban.
I (DesertStorm11) would ask that I would be the only one to host Wiki Mafia episodes. If you would like to host a Wiki Mafia game, you may do so. These are called Special Wiki Mafia games, or SWM games. Typically, there is a queue to start hosting Special Wiki Mafia games, so it may be wise to check with a Wiki Mafia Admin to see how open the queue is.
Just because I am doing this does not stop others from hosting Town of Salem or Town of Salem-like games.
