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.
