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 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.

Vaar will be my co-mod for this series.

At this point, Flex/Tej probably qualify as ringers - you've both played multiple beginner series and understand how to play.

Yeah, I'm good with being thrown in the Ringers section. Which is why I'm good being thrown into replacements/ringers if there's more beginners wanting to join. Also, could you critique my play from the series we were in together? You could do it here, in the endgame thread, or in a PM. Your a ridiculously good mafia player and I'd like some insight if available.

Flex, if there's too many people who want to sign up I may move you over to replacements, but for now you're in the ringers section.

FT, was that an /in or no?

I was planning to sign up but it seems like more people want to play than there are slots available.

I'll help balance the second game. Include me in the list of reviewers.
