I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

Highlander's Realm ("D&D" Forum RPG)

Whew. Made it out of that alive.

Everybody else is still getting their butts kicked, but I'm not terribly concerned with their well-being. I just hope that whoever doesn't survive is carrying some food I can eat.

I can feel an unnatural power coursing through me, like disembodied souls trying to control my movements. Did I use this in the fight? I don't remember doing that. How did...

Wait. My wounds are gone?

I can hear voices from the souls of the dead rushing through me. They're telling me... too many things. Conflicting voices. Instructions, information, but it doesn't make sense. But they're also telling me how to use this power again.

Activate Sacrificed Power again to increase my next two attack rolls by +5 for the next 2 minutes.

I don't really expect this battle to be over yet.

What are you thinking about right now?

I collect rare moderators. I've got a gold foil Deckiller, I'll trade you for your mint condition Clive.

Three strikes and you're out does seem like a very reasonable method. It doesn't tell new players quite as clearly that what they did isn't acceptable in the future. But it also doesn't drive them away.

Why the fuck not? If you drop out, you've proven you're a risk case. It's better to remove all the risk cases.

One time is already too many. Removing even a single player ruins the game for everyone else. If someone thinks there's even the slightest chance they might not be able to play properly they SHOULD NOT SIGN UP. If you are caught signing up in that situation then I have zero fucking tolerance.

I say this from a standpoint of being on the verge of having to cancel my own game that's currently in progress due to modkills and dropouts. This is something that I want to make sure never, ever happens again. I would rather ban all mafia games from the forums forever than have a single game cancelled while it's in progress.

If you can't get online for some reason, it sucks for you, but it sucks far worse for everyone else in the game. I'd rather prevent one person from joining the game in the first place than prevent a dozen people from enjoying it. The person who's banned has thousands of single-player games on RMN to play; the other people left in the ruined mafia game are stuck there in a shitty situation because one person was selfish.

I do realize that some problems are temporary, which is why the first time it happens I think it should only be a short ban of a couple months.

Ultimately, I just think potential players (people like Xoe and myself, for example) need to ask themselves if they really want to play the game, or how able they are to do so.
Unfortunately, demonstrably, people here are clearly incapable of doing this.

We definitely need to ban XoeIsCooI from joining mafia games for the indefinite future.

We're over four days into this game and s/he still hasn't even opened the original role PM. If my memory is correct, Xoe has joined the last seven games, and been modkilled in six of those. Three times for breaking the rules and three times for inactivity.

We might just want to ban anyone who gets modkilled or drops out of a game. It has an extremely negative effect on game balance and often ruins games when people get themselves modkilled, especially if multiple people do so in the same game. It makes the game outcome feel like it's getting decided by bullshit or by the moderator, instead of by people's cleverness. These bans don't need to be permanent, two months would be long enough to strongly discourage it, but possibly make it longer or permanent for repeat offenders.

"No! I'm innocent! It was just the belts!" screams InfectionFiles, as he is tarred and feathered.

"I know they're a fashion crime! But that's all! Just because I'm wearing nothing but a man-thong underneath doesn't mean I'm Kuja!" he pleads, as he is tied up and carried to the top of the Floating Continent.

As your party collectively tosses him off the edge, he shouts, "Setzer, please saveeee meeeeeeeeeeeee....!" But Setzer never shows up.

InfectionFiles was town!
