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!

**Important** Changes have been made to the beginners' series, so please note that the format of the series will be different from previous series.

Mafia University is a two-game crash course on how to play mafia. Both 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: Scumhunting
Game Two: Theme & Role Madness

Both of these games will be balanced. The first game will use the Matrix 6 setup--for more information, see http://wiki.mafiascum.net.... The second game will be a themed role-madness game, much like the majority of regular games here on DDO. The goal is for you to develop your essential scumhunting skills in a more distilled environment first, and then to apply them in a regular mafia setting.

Note: New players--if you are not already my friend, please send me a friend request. It makes communicating and sending PMs easier.
DDO Beginners' Mafia Moderator -- PM me if you'd like to learn how to play mafia!

I'll be a ringer. I assume FT and F16 will also be ringers.

I'm kind of new. I've played mafia twice but the first time I was pretty much completely inactive throughout the whole thing. So I guess I classify as a new player.

I'm in.

No offense to some of the folks who have signed up, but I don't think you should be signing up if you've played through a series already or have played through a few regular games. There may be players around who haven't played at all, and it seems kinda unfair to take a spot away from those players. At least wait to see if there is interest from total noobs before filling up the signups.

I can be a replacement. I have done about 10 games, but I still don't count myself as a ringer. My scumhunting could use some work. :P

I would be interested in giving this a try if there's space. I have a few games on Epic Mafia under my belt, but I'm still very much a newbie to this game.

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
