      First, read the Roles section for details on individual jobs. Wikipedia also gives a decent outline of the game, though it's not exactly how everything works here.


      Now, onto the meat of the game. You are living in a normal (or maybe not so normal) town with a dark secret. Now, it's come to light that a handful of your fellow citizens are out to murderize the rest of you. Shocking! Thankfully, you are many and they are few, so clear thinking and nerves of steel could keep some of you alive.


      The game is run in three distinct parts. The first is investigation. It's the Cop's job to select an unknown to investigate. Anyone can give input, but ultimately the decision belongs to them. Following the investigation, a story post will reveal the allegiance of the target.


      Next up is the lynch. Every member of the group gets to vote on a person to eliminate. Note, this includes all special roles, so the mafia can often steal a divided vote, or force a tie that's decided by a random number generator. And this isn't an election you can afford to skip out on. If a player fails to vote, the coma rule can be invoked after 2-3 missed votes. A random comatose player can be killed periodically, usually every lynch. Note that once all player roles are known, the Cop and Bodyguard can no longer vote. The allegiance of the lynched person (if unknown) is revealed following the lynch.


      Finally, there's the whack. All special roles with killing abilities as well as the Mafia select players to whack. That means the Mafia, Psycho, and Vigilante can all kill someone. At the same time, the Bodyguard will get a chance to foil an attack by protecting a person of their choice. In the event of a successful, a clue to the perpetrator's identity will be left in the post, usually a reference to profile information on their first page of images, journals, or interests. If multiple groups target the same person, the first one to get the vote in will be the one who the clue will point to. If the whack is blocked, no clue will be provided.


      While special roles may have different victory conditions, the general mafia and civilian roles are as follows: Civilians must eliminate all mafia before they're all killed. Mafia must eliminate enough civilians so they comprise an equal or greater voting block in the lynch. So if there are two mafiosos and two civilians, the game would end if all roles were known (voiding the votes of the cop and bodyguard). However, if one or more was unknown, the game goes on.


      All votes must be sent by private message before the deadline. There are usually three rounds a week, with two days between each to get votes in, so there's no excuse for being late. In the interest of clues, once the game starts you cannot change your profile, delete images/journals, or post an excessive number of images/journals. These are all used by the DM and making the DM annoyed with you will often result in bad things happening.


      Stories will be posted here and discussion will be done here. Have fun everyone!

      To All RT and Pet Lovers

      1 month ago

      You've probably heard that our resident Lead WebDev/SysAdmin/great guy had a really tough couple of days. Long story short, Rebel got hit by a car, and while he's alright it scared Adam half to death. It's obvious he loves Rebel and he's feeling a lot of strain right now. So what I want to do is take up a collection to send him and Rebel a care package. Treats, toys, and a really nice leash and collar. I'll be putting $25 in to start with and matching up to an additional $100. If any of you want to chip in, Private Message me here and I'll send you my paypal address. Also, feel free to suggest any cool things you think ought to go into the care package. Any leftover money I'll donate in Adam and Rebel's name to Vet Ranch, an awesome Texas charity that gives medical treatment to strays that would be otherwise euthanized.


      Please share this as much as you'd like, but keep it out of places Adam might see it so we can surprise him. Hopefully he doesn't see this journal, but I'd rather show him how much the community loves him than have it be a complete surprise. I'd like to get the order out Monday night. If you want to donate but need to wait until payday, let me know and I'll put it in with the total, and you can send it in later.


      Edit: Thanks for your massive support, everyone! Closing donations now. More news, soon!


      Edit the Second: Bark Box Subscription gifted, massive amazon care package ordered, and a donation to Vet Ranch made in Adam and Rebel's name. All donated funds were used, and if anyone who donated wants to know the price break down they can contact me.

      9, 13, 14, and 2,000,000

      1 month ago

      Well, that's a lot of numbers. Let's go through them one by one:


      9: A couple of weeks ago marked my ninth anniversary on the site. Been s long near decade. It's kind of crazy to think I've spent my entire adult life and most of my total years as a fan. Here's hoping to many more.


      13: Thirteen years of RT. Big number, there. But lots of journals on the subject, so not going too far into it.


      14: Season 14 of RvB's a thing, I guess. Finally got a chance to watch the trailer and... well, it's different. Not necessarily sure that's a good thing. I loved Season 13 mainly because they went back to a primarily Machinima driven environment with a scattering of animation. The season went back to the roots and did a damn good job of it. Amazing storytelling, plot, and ending. This seems like a collection of short stories narrated by a bad imitation of Vic (seriously Burnie, you need to get some more practice in). Could end up being great, but I'm not feeling it. Especially the outsourcing of content. Would love to see it as a miniseries or side story. Really don't think it's what's best for a core season.


      2,000,000: Well, this one is both great and sad. There are now Two Million registered members of RT. Which is huge for a website like this. But a bunch of you remember when we hit one million. There was a lead up followed by an announcement, journals from the staff, and everyone talking about how cool it was to be a part of such a huge community. Now... crickets. Pretty sure I'm the first to notice the little number clicking over, which is disappointing. I know Adam and the rest of the devs are doing really awesome work, but would be even better if management and Full Screen sent more resources their way. So here's hoping for a community revival by three million!

      Austin Fun

      2 months ago

      Happy Easter everyone! Had a great time in Austin yesterday hanging out with peeps!First, got to have Rudy's BBQ for what Google tells me is the first time in 7 months. And better yet, got to introduce @niriall, a new arrival in Austin, to the deliciousness that is the "Worst BBQ in Texas".


      After that, met up with @tonyski and @PeteG to go see Batman vs Superman. Good movie, whatever the critics saw. Wouldn't put it up there with Dark Knight or the first Avengers in terms of superhero movies, but a solid 7/10. We also ended up having a couple of stalkers. @jack and @Caiti ended up taking the seats directly behind ours. You could sense them watching us, judging. Or maybe they were just watching the movie. Hard to tell, sometimes.


      Finally, went over to Pete's house where @Felix and @Tropes showed up. Pete brought out his amazing VR rig and we played a couple of games. Played some Cards Against Humanity, too, which was just as hilariously offensive as usual. But sadly I had to cut it short to get back to Houston before it was too late. Had a ton of fun, though, and hopefully I'll see you all again soon!

      Austin Plans

      2 months ago

      So I guess next weekend I will be going to Austin on Saturday! Can't wait to see a bunch of you. I think the plan I'm going to stick to is eat lunch at the South Capitol of Texas Rudy's at about noon. Then was thinking of seeing The Battle of the Orphans (AKA Batman vs Superman) at 2:25 at the South Lamar Alamo Drafthouse. If you'd like to go, let me know by Wednesday evening and I'll buy a bunch of tickets. After that, play it by ear. Maybe go to Red's Porch to hang out for a while, or if someone wants to volunteer their humble abode we could play some Cards Against Humanity. How does all that sound? @PeteG, @tonyski, @Ratatoskr, @Felix, and @niriall, you've all expressed interest. And anyone else is welcome.


      Edit: Tickets bought. If you want to get one, grab Row 3, Seats 19 and 20 for the 2:25 Alamo S. Lamar Screeing of Orphan Fight 2016 (Batman vs Superman)

      Hey Austin, is there an efficient way for us to flag an obvious spambot account, not necessarily a specific post? Some accounts have the blatant spam in their "About Me" and I'm sure they're posting spam in video comments somewhere (it used to be easier when sponsors could see the log of where they've been posting). I have been flagging their profile picture (which has all the hallmarks of spambot accounts: stock photo, questionable links in the 'About Me', and/or photo of a scantily clad model) which would hopefully draw the admins' attention to the profile itself. How should I proceed? Thanks!


      CC: @Adam, @Dave, @DiMono

      • Radius55 Site Admin

        3 months ago

        Flagging any post they make works. If it's a spam post we just delete the entire account. But flagging the post where they spam is best.

      • Dave Occasionally Bearded

        3 months ago

        I've seen the flags on the profile pictures and that's a great way to get us to those accounts quickly. Outside that and posts, there really isn't a way to flag "accounts" per se, but if you ever got a list of them you could just DM one of us, which would also be effective. Thanks and keep up the hunting!

      Well there appears to be a cluster going on in Barb's comments. Looks like you and Daniel have taken care of that. It got me wondering, between Jack's Clap-Trap give away and Barb's, what percentage of users follow directions. I can see how many comments the original post got. I suppose I could count each comment on Barb's profile to figure out its percentage relative to the journal post comments. Do you think it's fair to say that for each user who posted on Barb's profile, they would have gone ahead and posted in the journal once either of you two corrected them?

        I noticed that too, concerning newer or rarely used accounts. Maybe the new site will immediately take newly created accounts to something like the "First Stop" topic on the forums.

      • Radius55 Site Admin

        1 year ago

        Rough guess is 99+% follow directions based on the number of journal comments vs number of user comments. I'll also note boost of the user comments were by new our rarely used profiles that probably didn't know their way around the site and thought the comment tab was the same as the journal comment link.

        By "play" do you mean mess with relentlessly? Because, yeah, I'm known to do that occasionally... smiley0.gif

      So, Raduis55, you had responded to one of my comments, and I can't find it for my life. It simply refuses to pop up on-screen. Any advice, or should I just get over it and not think about it?

        If you know the approximate date and location of the comment, just keep scrolling down in a person's comments section. The comments section automatically loads as you scroll down. Beyond that, I've got nothing.

      Hey Radius55, I need some help. How do I make it so I don't end up surprised or offended if I send you a friend request? :)

        I explain my friend request policy on my profile.

      Hey Mr. Engineering Student! We could use more engineers at Scientists of RT (considering I'm the only one and I'm not a real engineer, just a geologist!). Care to provide your input and partake in science banter? smiley1.gif

        Yep, I didn't send any other messages. smiley1.gif

        Sure. Assuming the message you sent me is an invite I'll get to it tonight when I get home.

      I kept an eye out for you in Expo Hall, but we didn't spend much time there this RTX. Sorry I didn't get to meet you in person, you awesome admin, you.

        I popped in to get a picture with the Tower, but that was my only experience over there. I like that it was in the same place as last time. If I had one more day, I would have checked out Achievement City, but there were panels to see and people to do.

        Thanks. I had to spend the whole time over at the AH Lounge.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "Audio Pockets". Podcasts? Sorry, can't help you there. Don't have any control over the technical aspects of distribution.
