Welcome to DDO's Mafia University!

Don't know what Mafia is? Have a little knowledge but want to improve? Need practice? Then this is for you!

Mafia University will be a three-game crash course in how to play mafia. Each of the games will teach you specific skills involved in mafia, leaving you with the tools you'll need to be a fierce mafia player. Here is the curriculum:

Game One: Intro to Mafia: Basics and Roles
Game Two: Flavors, Misinformation, and Third Parties
Game Three: Themes

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

SIGN-UPS

New Players:
1. Krieg01 (spot reserved)
2. GCL (spot reserved)
3. Adam (spot reserved)
4. Yama (spot reserved)
5.
6.
7.
8.

Ringers (experienced players):
9. Budda
10. Khaos

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

INFO

Please sign-up only if you have 4-5 weeks to spare. Thanks!

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.

Also, I reserve the right to pick the ringers.

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

Credit for this series' setup goes to Khaos and Drafterman.

Please talk to that Sam Stevens guy. He seems to want to get more involved in the community, but is having a slightly hard time adjusting. Maybe this will help him.

I'm done with all that insurgent stuff. Lannan's game confused me so much I just immediately stopped participating and still have no ideal if I was scum that game or not.

I'm done with it too and Lannan's game wasn't insurgent, it was a fate game.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

Why's that?
If you are comparing to live vs. forum, they both have their high and low points.

Pros:
Much much faster.
Live, so you have to be on your feet.
If you use your mic, your voice can betray you. Same with camera.
Fewer players, as well. (at most, nine)

Cons:
It is easy to be ignored. Those with mics are focused on, over those texting.
It is hard to keep track of things, including, who is even alive.
As mafia, it is much, much harder to keep things straight.
(as an introvert, it's difficult for me for personal reasons)

I feel like it'd be much harder as scum. You don't get time to analyze and come up with a good fake claim..
Is it practically the equivalent of epicmafia with mics/cameras?

I'll sign up. However, my schedule is hectic, so I won't be on for long stretches of the day, specifically Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but I WILL be on every day.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.
