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 four-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: Role Madness
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.

I am co-hosting this series with Rev, per his request.

SIGN-UPS

New Players:
1. bhu
2. Molon
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.

Ringers (experienced players):
9.
10.

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.

There aren't enough noobs to have an 4-1 noob-ringer ratio for more than half a DP.

Bhu is a troll and shouldn't play in the game.

I kinda don't feel like playing with someone like that. Like, it kind of fvcks the game up. I'd bet you he'd quote his role PM again on purpose.

That's a decision for you to make, but I don't think it's appropriate to make a noob feel unwelcome like that until you have a concrete reason to object.

That's what you think, but he could just genuinely lack experience. Until that's determined, we need to extend the benefit of the doubt and NOT make people feel unwelcome.
