This is some general information about the game, but I will summarize the rules: Mafia Game Rules)
Basically, there are teams of players (usually two teams), that are fighting each other. The Mafia wants control of the town, while the Townies resist the Mafia and want to keep the town as is. Neutral characters are passersby in the town and just strive to survive, helping either team as they see fit. There are two phases to the game, the Day and Night phase. The Day phase, anyone can discuss who might be Mafia and who might be a Townie, and try to get a majority vote on who might be Mafia, thus disabling them. The Mafia can also vote during this phase, and they will try to instead disable a Townie. At Night, the Mafia all gather to vote on a Townie to disable. The objective is either that the Mafia team is completely under control, or the Mafia is able to overtake the town due to the Townies either numbering that of the Mafia or are fewer in number compared to the Mafia. There will also be roles for each player, as well as a Moderator to oversee the entire game. The Moderator is the only participant in this game that does not have a role, but instead controls the game itself.
Now, this can get pretty complicated, so I have a list of DO's and DON'T's when playing this game, in order to highlight the most important tips for you:
-Be respectful to other players. Don't pick out a player during the Day phase because you don't like them, but if you think they might be Mafia, that is perfectly ok.
-Encourage discussion to take place during the Day phase. The more you know, the better you'll do in the game.
-PM the Moderator if you have any questions regarding the game. He/She may not tell you about other players, though.
-PM the Moderator if you would like to use one of your special abilities, and on who if a target is involved. Don't announce it in the thread, though, or you'll give away your best element of surprise! If you're given a role with more than one special ability, you may decide how many you want to use...you could use all of them if you wish!
-Try to get a Townie disabled instead if you are a member of the Mafia. Try to make it hard for people to tell if you are lying or telling the truth. If you are Neutral instead, it's your call who you want to vote, Townie or Mafia.
-Communicate with other Mafia members regarding the game progress if you are a Mafia member yourself. Be aware that Mafia members sacrificing one of their own is sometimes used!
-PM the Moderator during the Night phase, after talking with fellow Mafia members, the name of the player to disable. Townies and Neutral cannot talk with the Moderator during this time except if they want to use a special ability.
-Abstain, or pass, if you do not want to vote during the Day phase. You can, however, still choose to use a special ability by PMing the Moderator, as that is an entirely different action.
-Try to communicate with other players unless you're talking Mafia to Mafia. Do not tell anyone your role or get anyone to tell you about their roles. That ruins the surprise of the game.
-PM the Moderator asking for another role. The role you get is what you're stuck with until the end. If the Moderator deems it necessary for you to get another role, THEN you'll get another.
-PM the Moderator asking him/her to end the current phase. The Moderator controls how long each phase lasts, but generally the Day phase lasts longer than Night due to voting.
-Attempt to continue playing the game even if you are disabled. Unlike Hurt and Heal, once you've been disabled, you are done. You may continue to guess on your own who is who, but no communication with others.
-Attempt to play the game if you did not sign up. Unlike other games, this one has a limited time period before no more players will be accepted.
Think that covers everything, so if you're interested in joining a game, and said game has not started yet, feel free to post below saying you want to join. After sign-ups are closed, you will be PMed your role, and prepare for Day 1.

...Counting Kirbologist, that makes seven players. While I can work with this number, I would prefer at least two more so the game can last a little while. I don't have a deadline set up yet, but probably I'll more than likely just stop accepting players once I decide I'll work with what I have.
...Well...there might not be any more players, but I will have sign ups open for one more day. Tomorrow I will send the roles out for everyone. Another player would help out the Townies since the current game setup will have 3 Mafia members and 5 Townies! In the meantime, if anyone has any questions regarding the game, feel free to ask them.
...Mafia members can really use any kind of communication as long as Townies cannot see what you're discussing. This can be PMs or a private channel in the chat, for example. This can be done Day and Night. During the day, everyone will post here debating who might be Mafia. I will allow some discussion even if you don't plan to vote (Abstain) or have already made your vote, but wish to talk anyway or change your vote, but it must be related to the game in progress.

...Performing a double post since it is now time for the game to begin! Everyone has been PMed their roles, so we are all set!
It was a peaceful day in the town as the residents went about their business...until suddenly a large discharge of energy was unleashed in town square! Everyone seems to be ok, but there's two problems: everyone knows who they are, but they cannot tell apart anyone else...they all look like Robots! To add to the trouble, there's a head count of two extra Robots...could the two extra Robots be the Mafia?!
Choose wisely, everyone, as the fate of the town rests on your hands! You can either vote for a specific player or abstain if you feel you must wait this out (though don't delay too much or the Mafia will pick out the Townies!). Special abilities can also be activated by PMing me. Once more, do NOT tell anyone who you are (unless you're Mafia, then feel free to share your role with the other Mafia member)! Good luck everyone!
EDIT: Since NO ONE wanted to post, I'm going to Night 1 now.
Afraid to pick anyone that might be innocent, no one stepped up to vote...so instead the robots resumed their normal duties and then went into the robot labs to recharge for tomorrow. While the robots plan on their activities for tomorrow, two robots meet in a different part of the town to discuss their move...
Mafia, it's time to choose a victim. Choose wisely...I'll be expecting a PM from you guys shortly.

...Triple post to advance the game, please don't make me have to do a fourth in a row.
As the night turns to day, the robots perform their usual opening routines, which includes making sure every robot is accounted for. Usually every robot is punctual...however today one robot is missing. Two robots suddenly show up, alarmed at what they saw in the town square. In the middle of the town square was a robot that was not moving. Upon further inspection, the robot's core and its I.C. chip (a chip that gives the robot its unique behavior) were removed. The only robot that did not show up for the usual routine was...
You are the nurse of the Townies, protecting the innocent whenever possible. You feel overwhelmed, though, and wish for the assistance of the Super Townie soon.
Passive (???): If you are able to get in contact with the Super Townie, then on every Day phase both you and the Super Townie will be protected from 1 vote each.
Active (Roll Buster): If you believe someone is being wrongly considered to be Mafia, you may shield that user (by having the Moderator do it) from 1 vote. This cannot be performed on yourself. This ability can be used on any Day phase with no cooldown.
(Note: Roll was a robot in which the Passive was disabled unless a condition was met, then it was changed. Unfortunately, the condition will not be fulfilled now.)
This puts the town in an uproar as one of their own was disabled during the night. The disabled robot was placed into the labs to analyze how it was disabled. Everyone is uneasy, but they proceed to do their usual duties, seeing as nothing else can be done now regarding their friend.
Sorry Meta, but the Mafia has disabled you, so for this game you are done, sadly. As for the rest of you, anyone willing to take a guess at who is Mafia?
