The Party at the Machine
The Latest EscapeRestart Mafia Experience by Timdood3 and Alisha

An anomalous amalgamation of metal lies dormant for decades, maybe centuries, remote in the mountains. It was discovered by an expedition investigating mysterious events: Thick smoke drifting through the mountains, mysterious disappearances of locals and wildlife, strange sounds echoing over the valleys, and so on. The Machine was relocated to a safer, more concealed location, and many have since tried and failed to discover its secrets. Some groups wish only to study the machine, to preserve and protect. Others seek to forward their own agendas, not all of them nefarious, and others still just want to watch it all come crashing down.

Welcome, players, to the Party at the Machine.

You all know the rules, but on the off chance you don't, here they are for posterity:
Be respectful and polite.
• Do not edit posts. Make a double/triple/quadruple/penta post instead. Even if your forum rank and permissions will let you edit or delete posts, please do not use them.
• You are not allowed to make last statements after you are dead.
• If you have not signed up to play mafia, do not post in the game thread.
• Do not rate posts after you die. It is also preferable to post instead of rate when possible when alive.
• You are not allowed to use the -In a conversation- status as a tool against someone.
• Do not look at posts that have been marked as deleted, even if you have permissions otherwise.

Honesty and Cheating
• In all interactions with the moderator, you must be honest.
• Do not contact any player in or outside of the game about the game unless specifically allowed to by the moderator.
• Do not attempt to access another player's information by technological means (such as hacking).
• Do nothing that would be considered cheating. Use common sense.

Gaming the System
• Do not quote your role PM, take a screen capture of it, etc. You may paraphrase the role PM.
• Do not attempt to analyze the mechanics of a role PM in comparison to other players. For example, "the fourth word of my role PM is town." Or "my PM was sent at 11:23, when was yours?"
• No outside bets or other contrivances should be made.
• At no time should there be pre-game alliances made.
• If you are confused about an aspect of your role, ask your host about it in a private channel. Do not ask about it in the game thread.

• You are expected to be an active participant in your game. Do not flake.
• If you know you are going to be absent a particular amount of time, post in game and PM the moderator that you will be V/LA. Please include the date you plan to be back and posting.

• No excessive racist, homophobic, sexist, etc. language may be used.
• Harassment of an individual player is NOT permitted. It is the nature of the game that players will be antagonistic toward each other at times. However, it should always be kept in the spirit of a game.
• Always play to your win condition. Never sabotage your team's chances simply because you're angry at them. This includes self votes and the like.

The Moderator
• The Moderator will post frequent vote counts.
• The moderator reserves the right to alter any rule in the game including any of the rules found in this document.
• If the moderator makes a mistake on a vote count, please address it in thread in bold.
• PM the moderator with other concerns.
• The moderator has the final say.

Leaving the Game
• When you sign up, it is expected you are capable of remaining interested in the game throughout its run.
• If you have decided you can no longer be a part of this wonderful adventure, send a private message to the moderator announcing you are leaving.
• Under no circumstances are you to reveal your role when you quit, and you should not talk about your role while the game is still running.

A Little Bit About the Setup
  • The primary uniqueness about the Party at the Machine is well, the Machine: A non-player entity that can be visited and interacted with by a number of roles in the game (which to keep things vague I will say may be anywhere from 1 to the whole 17)
  • The mafia must visit the machine in order to preform their factional kill.
  • In the case that a third party role fulfills their win condition, they will exit the game and it will continue.
  • And whether they exist or not, I feel it's a good idea to remind you that RID roles could exist.
Sign-up Format
The role I will receive is probably hot garbage, but I'm going to play it anyway.

This is going to be a fun game to see play out, Timdood put a lot of work into getting the game ready. I'd certainly be playing but I know too much and must be lurking behind the scenes. ;)

Just for fun, here's a recent machine related story:

Yesterday I called an 'ATM' as an 'ATM Machine!' It was mortifying!

One thing I forgot to include about the setup: If a third party role fulfills their win condition, they will exit the game and it will continue.
The OP has been edited to reflect this.
