Welcome to Ted Dekker Mafia, a game of intrigue, powerful characters, sweeping storylines, and faith. Though good always wins the war in the end, the path to that end is filled with battles - and who knows who may win this battle?

There are many fighting in this battle. Most are either good or bad, though a few are neutral. The game-changing powers that each one has are ready and waiting to be deployed against the foe - but first, you'll need to figure out who the foe is...


The Characters

The Good Side

-Thomas Hunter (The Circle Trilogy)
-Monique De Raison (The Circle Trilogy)
-(3)Forest Guard (The Circle Trilogy)
-Samantha (Thr3e)
-Saint (Paradise Series)
-Seth Borders (Blink)
-Shauna (Kiss)

The Bad Side

-Teeleh (The Circle Trilogy)
-(3)Shataiki (The Circle Trilogy)
-Carlos (The Circle Trilogy)
-Svensson (The Circle Trilogy)
-Slater (Thr3e)
-Marsuvees Black (Paradise Series)
-Billy (Paradise Series)

The Neutral Person

-Kevin Parson (Thr3e)

The Rules

Role PMs
Roles will be randomly generated via random.org's List Randomizer. So no complaining if you happen to recieve the Innocent Bystander role, it's just luck of the draw. There is a chance, though, that if not enough players sign up, the Innocent Bystander role will be dropped. I'm sure you're all happy about that. also if more people want to join I will make additional roles as nessery

Things Not Allowed
  1. The Talking Dead
    • Once you are dead, you are dead - with one exception. A death message can be sent to one of the hosts once you discover that you're dead, and it'll be posted in the thread sometime the following day. Given that it'll be going through the hosts first, there are limits on what can be said - in general, nothing can be given away. But the cleverer your death message is, the greater the chance that it'll be posted regardless of whether or not it gives something away.
  2. General Cheating
    • This includes, but is not limited to: screenshots of role PMs, letting someone else log in to your account to view your role PM (it's not a good idea anyway), printouts of role PMs, and anything akin to the aforementioned hateful acts. I don't expect people to violate these rules anyway, but I figured it's best to just make things clear.

Honor Code
I'm leaving this up to you guys. Feel free to hold yourself to some kind of ideal that keeps you from deception; or feel free to lie and cheat and pretend to be people that you are not in order to get information or gain some kind of advantage; but bear in mind that anything violating the above rules will not be tolerated.

I believe that mafia, as a game, is an exercise in survival skills in a dangerous situation. Rahab lied to save the lives of Hebrew spies, and was rewarded by the Lord for her good actions; in this game, you may lie to help your side win, and who knows? You may be rewarded for it.

Action Rules
Night actions will be enacted on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you get your night hit in on someone else who has a night hit on you, you'll defeat them and their night action will not take place - you'll live. Similarly, if someone else acts to prevent your night action in any way, then your night action won't take place.

About voting - if there is a tie, all tied lynchees will be lynched. Otherwise, whoever recieves the most votes will be lynched. If no one votes, one person - chosen by our old pal, random.org - will be lynched.

Final Note
The hosts of this game will be playing the role of 'God' - all that means is that we reserve the right to intervene in any situation and force anything to happen. Have fun trying to complain about that - that is, if it bothers you, which it shouldn't.

The Revealing

When the game ends, for good or for evil, everything will be revealed here - who everyone was, what the roles' individual powers and traits were, who took which night actions when, and how things worked together to achieve whatever outcome happens.

The Players

When someone dies, their name will be struck out. Their side and role will be revealed and the circumstances of their death will be posted with their name. green means they were good red means they were bad

Take careful note - I'm co-hosting this, as is +X.

So pay attention when someone says who to message with night actions/etc.
