Introduction

Here's the deal. I firmly believe that Mafia needs smaller, quicker, games. Inactivity, longer DPs filled with crap are ruining the game. So instead of a huge 214 player game, I'm going to do two short, 7 player games. Yes, I'm going to do two games in a row back-to-back. It's 7P each, so that shouldn't be an issue. Don't like it? Don't sign up.

Who can play?

Additionally, while this is not an invitation-only game, I'm reserving the sign-ups for established, proficient players. Established is easy. If you've played many games and know who I am, you're probably established. Proficient, well that's a bit subjective so I'll be making judgment calls. So anyone can try and sign-up all they want, but I'll be kicking you out if you don't make the cut.

Inactivity and Replacements

In short, there will be no replacements. Nada. Zilch. F that. If you can't commit, don't play. If you're inactive, you get the boot. Simple as that. Here is how it works:

The Day Phase Ends when:

There is a majority vote for a no lynch or lynch AND (The day phase has been up for at least 24 hours OR everyone has placed a vote somewhere)

OR

The day phase has been up for at least 72 hours.

When the day phase ends, anyone who hasn't posted will be mod killed. That means if you can't post at least once per 24 hour period, then you run the risk of getting axed if there is a quick lynch. So, commit and be active. If you can't, don't sign up.

The Night Phase Ends when:

Everyone has submitted night actions (if applicable) OR The night phase has been up for at least 48 hours.

Again, if you have a night action and haven't submitted one, you get mod killed.

Design:

The game is themeless and closed. There are roles only. No fancy mechanics and no custom roles. Sign-ups are for both games. Anyone that wants to opt out of the second can, and you are automatically opted out if you are modkilled. If necessary, I will post supplementary sign-ups to fill in any blanks.

I'd like to join. In the past month I've been part of MLP, Pokemon, Mythological Creatures and Robot. I was quite active in all of those games, except near the end of Robot where it benefited by wincon.

Up to you as to whether that qualifies as established and proficient.

Yes! This is what I'm talking about. 100% agree with smaller, faster games.

That said, I don't know if I'm available lol. Does the game start when sign-ups are filled, or is there a later starting date?

I hate to be that guy, but could you update the list of who you're accepting.

If I am not accepted in this game, I'll be on the lookout for other games/activities that can occupy my time. (I spend some time every night playing a variety of forum games because that's how I do.)

Not sure yet if I want to join. Going to see who else signs up. I realize part of it is a cycle - more experienced players want to sign up if they see other experienced players so that's partly why I'm responding to the PM in thread.

Will both be going on same time? Or one after the other? Cause if one after the other, I'll sign up for the first, and probably be cool with playing the second. If at the same time, just one game is good. This of course, assumes I meet the qualifications to play, which would be up to you.

I've played a couple games, on accord of 3 or 4. Can I join? I'm much better at small games like in the old days than long games nowadays

Idk about established (I've played quite a few games on here, and I remember you from playing FT's Nightless though I wasn't very good back then), but I think I can be considered proficient by now. I've played in more beginner series than I care to count, some of them as a ringer. Also Solon's Fire Emblem Mafia, Bsh1's Literature Mafia, Bullish's Illusionists Mafia, TUF's Clash of Clans Mafia, Smithereens' Witch Hunters Mafia, and Bsh1's Mythological Creatures Mafia (which is still ongoing but I died in it). There have probably been more that I'm forgetting, but these come to mind.

I can't play this for the same reason I had to drop out of DDO jeopardy today -- one of my projects was just pushed up by a month today and I need to really buckle down to complete it.

TGAP is a great mod and everyone should sign up for these two games.

I believe TGP is looking for players that are active and talented. He seems to be basing activity off of "friendly faces", which is understandable.

You are probably not allowed in this game because, all though you are active, you haven't demonstrated much talent. Your DP behavior is full of logical inconsistencies, ill-formed reads and posts that don't add much to the game.

Similarly, I lack consistency, good reads and I tend to get hostile in the wee hours of the night. We don't make the cut now -- but that's why we play the game. Every win or loss makes us better players. Don't be mad that you aren't allowed in this game. If you continue to play other games, you'll soon be considered "proficient and established".

I never said I was talanted but now that there is that question, what kind of doctor protects himself? While your DP behavior may be slightly better than mine, your usage of your role is horrendous.

One after the other.

excellent, then both it is, although thats pending to change, i should be able to easily participate in both. In fact i have a move coming up here in a week or two that should coincide with, and thus give me plenty of time while i'm traveling to play :D
