M18 "Duels" Signups (TESTING NEW MECHANIC)

Welcome to M18 “Duels”.

This game is brought to you by the Chief Delphi community and will be run by myself, @gellnick. This game will contain a new mechanic, “duels”, which will be explained below. There are no restrictions on who can join this game with respect to being formed for a subsection of this community, but it has been known that the post count can get quite high (~5k posts total in the game).

Rules: From Chief Delphi

1: Screw the Chief Delphi forum rules.

2: Be respectful to the hosts and your fellow players. Attacking other players in a personal manner is strictly forbidden.

3: Don’t throw the game. Always play with the intent of helping your faction win.

4: Don’t be inactive. If you do not post meaningfully within 24 hours or at least five times in any given phase, you will be prodded. Receiving two prods or failing to respond to a prod within 12 hours will result in your removal from the game. Attempts to “prod dodge” by barely meeting this limit are discouraged. Prods will occur via DM or Discord DMs (if needed) in order to keep clutter out of the game thread.

5: Do not discuss the game outside of the game. Anywhere. It’s not worth it.

6: No editing content or deleting posts for any reason without express moderator permission. Ninja edits to correct grammer or spelling are fine.

7: No posting after the majority is reached or at night. Repeated or egregious failure to comply will result in your removal from the game.

8: Do not quote/screenshot private host messages. They’re private for a reason. If the mod needs to clarify anything, they will do so themselves.

9: Angle Shooting is strictly prohibited. This involves any and all methods outside of the game thread that may help determine a player’s alignment, including your own. If this occurs accidentally, DM the hosts. If this occurs intentionally, it may be considered cheating.

10: Keep the thread clean of outside influence. Dead players cannot interact with those alive in any way, including liking posts in the game thread, or voting in polls. Living players, likewise, should direct all questions to the hosts through DMs, rather than just pinging them in the thread. No vote counts will be given by the dead, nor will they end the day.

11: Do not edit the OP for any reason without host permission. If you believe you can make a positive contribution, DM the hosts first.

12: It’s a game - have fun!





DUELS are a new mechanic.

Every player can shoot. The first shot any player makes in a day will go through, but any shots made afterward will be ignored, including shots made by other players. Shots can only be made during the day.

Both Town and Mafia are able to shoot, but any shot that hits a player whose alignment is Town will die. Any player whose shot hits Mafia will live, and the Mafia will die.


So… if you’re mafia and you shoot town then you die?

BTW, this game will likely not start for a while, I’m gonna wait for a game or two to end first.

So only 1 person a day can shoot?

Yes. The first player to shoot will be counted, any shots afterward will be ignored. Day does NOT end when a shot is made.


are duels still enabled in LyLo/MyLo?

Yes, they are always active.
The outcome can cause scum to win.

When will the game start? I probably won’t be able to play if this game runs during the middle of June.

In hindsight it might be a good idea to disable them so it’s not decided by who’s online first

But if you want that then okay

Wouldn’t this be foresight?

Mafia still can’t shoot town to win so I think it’s probably fine


When do you plan for this game to take place?

Depends on how fast 11 players sign up.
Already have 3.

I might join but I have AP tests in the next few weeks so I will probably be too busy to join

Probably won’t start until after school ends for most.

For me school ends in a bit over a month, I don’t really think people want to wait that long.
