Mafia University
Want to know what this strange, oddly compelling game mafia is? Know what mafia is but wish to bone up on your skills? Mafia University is the place for you!

You will be put through a boot-camp of three mafia games. Each game is designed to teach you the basics of mafia in a progressive fashion, leading up to the themed games that predominate DDO Mafia. The curriculum is as follows:

Round 1: Introduction to Mafia, Mafia Basics and Role Madness!
Round 2: Flavors, Misinformation, Information Denial, and Third Parties
Round 3: Themed Game

The games are designed for maximum exposure, not balance. The idea is to have new players deal with all of the different circumstances that may commonly run up against in normal mafia games.

The sign-up sheet below is for all three games. That way, each person gets the full effect of the beginners' course and also helps keeps things moving.

New Players:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

Ringers (experienced players):
7.
8.

Replacements (open to all players, preference given to noobs):
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Town Advisor: (Optional; May comment in Day Phase thread to give advice; has no special knowledge of the game)
1.

Mafia Advisor: (Optional; Participates in mafia PM to give advice; has no special knowledge of the game)
1.

What constitutes a "New" player versus an "Experienced" player? My personal, arbitrary, discretion. My primary goal is to get a game up and running, otherwise no one benefits. However, slots will be given to newer/lesser experienced/lesser ability players as a matter of preference. If you are not such a player (or I don't believe you are such a player), then feel free to sign up, but also be prepared to have your slot taken away and given to someone who will benefit from it more. Other than that, the game is open to all.

Advice: If you are not already my friend, when signing up, add me as a friend. This will make things go faster.

(The above is stolen straight from Drafterman and I will be plagiarizing most of his speeches, as they are good.
The only thing I will add is that this "boot camp" will last about 4 weeks or so. Please be active and only sign up if you can make the commitment. BE ACTIVE. Without activity the game suffers and you learn nothing.)
My work here is, finally, done.

I figure we should strike while the iron is hot.
If anybody else would like to mod this, feel free. Otherwise I will.

I'd like to play.

I have extensive experience with the StarCraft II mod "Mafia", which seems very similar; however, I am not 100% sure as to the differences between it and the forum game.
SO to Bailey, the love of my life <3

I'll do that if you want, but you and Khaos have that covered, I think. I don't think they would need me as well.

Khaos/Drafter would you guys be willing to help me mod this, if drafter isnt running this?

No offense, but either I don't understand you, or you don't seem to take the games you play seriously. I don't want you modding a beginner series with that attitude/approach. Also, your spelling/grammar is atrocious at times.

BTW, I think Drafter is retired from DDO.

If this is still open, I would love to get involved. I have absolutely no clue how to play mafia. I played in Bsh1's starwars RPG, but besides that, no experience.

I can be a Ringer if you want me to. My only experience with MAfia is going through this Bootcamp Beginner's Mafia once though.

I understand the game very well.

I think I need more training in this game than TN05, therefore I plead you to put me above him. I think that I am not yet ready to play a real game, and must go through another beginner series to be fully ready.

Let's have a bit of a bigger series this time, with more options available.
TN05, I trust you to be a replacement, so you are there, and I think you know more than most of the noobs.

I'll try a bigger field this time, and narrow it if need be. More players, more options.
I want to see crypto play again :)

Send me friend requests if you haven't already.
Let's get this game up and going.

I cannot comment on any similarities, but welcome.
If you are still interested, send me a friend request.
This is a series of three games, and will require about a month long commitment, and it is suggested you log in and/or post every day for maximum enjoyment.
