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.

Saph and I will co-mod this series together.

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.

It's subjective, though I am thinking of changing that. It's usually when I suddenly realize, "damn, their not a noob anymore, why on Earth are they signing up for this?"

/in as noob

I iz still noob. Both my wins were from being on OP teams.

The time will come to prove myself worthy of the title 'non-noob'

I am one with my surroundings.
I am at peace, I am ready.
I am coming...
I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's only me, and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one, and I walk alone
