To avoid forum clutter, this will be a centralized signup thread for mafia on this forum. It will work as follows:

1. A moderator will declare their intent to host a game, nominating the number of players and a rough outline of the setup.

2. Players can opt into a particular game simply by posting /IN for *modname* in bold text. For example if both Hadoblado and PmjPmj were running a game and you wanted to join Hadoblado's game, you would say:

/IN for Hadoblado

Either Hadoblado or myself could then add you to the game's queue. This would be done using this particular shade of bold, blue text.

3. To opt out of a particular game, you can simply type /OUT for *modname*

4. Game moderators are free to update their queue or game details in this thread, and to maintain their own player lists. I'll try to help out where possible. Maintaining lists should be kept as simple as possible. Ideally in this format:

Player list for Hadoblado's 13 player game
1. redbaron
2. Fukyo
3. Gopher
4. Pmj
5. Blahblah
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
11.
12.
13.

If a player is added or removed, the name is simply added or removed from the list.

The advantages of this system is that people could also /IN to replace when there's no open queues, so that moderators are aware of who is or isn't available to play the game. You can opt in or out to replace as needed. It's a nice tidy way of getting people into and out of games with minimum fuss.

Pmj's TWG: Beast Mode Engage

Player List
redbaron
Yellow
Spaceblog
Reluctantly


Replacements
Sinny

Setup
(subject to change dependent upon player count / tweaks for balancing - critique welcomed, as this is my first time hosting).

11 Players (ideally)
6 Vanilla Town
1 Vigilante (can kill anyone at any time; no need to wait for the night)
1 Seer
3 Wolves

I still like the idea of a wildcard thrown in there somewhere, but I'll have to think on it. Here, I'd appreciate the thoughts (via PM, to keep it top secret ;)) of more experienced GMs / players. All ideas welcome.

Roles will be assigned at random, using a random generator type thing which I'm sure must exist out there. If anyone has recommendations, please let me know.

General Structure
I suggest we start the game around 11pm - 12am GMT. Let's get a list of timezones together and come to a consesus on this.

Day 1: 24 hours from kick-off
Night Cycle: Complete when all Night Actions are in (could be minutes; could be hours - ooh, the suspense!)
Day 2 onwards: 24 hours from Night Cycle completion.

Note: this is supposed to be rather unstructured in the hopes of fostering a faster, more frantic game.

Lynches/Player Death(s)
Lynches will be as per vanilla mafia: vote for fellow players throughout the day; the player with the most votes at the end of the day cycle will be lynched.

Wolves should post their night action in their QT (or PM me) once they have agreed upon a course of action. Wolves can kill one townsperson per night.

The Vigilante can post in his/her QT, or PM me directly. Note: the Vigilante can only kill one player, but that kill can come at any time. I will notify players of the kill via the game thread as soon as I receive the request.

Outside Communication
Encouraged. PM, IRC (if anyone still uses that?) email, you name it - just keep logs so that we can enjoy any subterfuge you employed after the game has ended.

The standard QT threads will also be created for spectators and wolves.

Go Crazy
Obviously, there are certain boundaries we should observe. We're all adults here, so I'll leave it up to you to recognise and honour 'the line'... but with that being said, a more aggressive play style is encouraged. Not necessary, but encouraged. This is your chance to vent and have a bit of fun.

Remember
It's just a game. Fling as much shit as you want at one another within the game thread / private communications, but remember that it is just a game. This setup, if it proves to be anything like the ones I've played prior, is not for the faint of heart. Keep this in mind before signing up.

Mod Colour
Pink and fabulous, darling. If you post in this colour, I will find you IRL and shit in your bed. Fair warning administered.

If I've missed anything, please point it out to me. I was typing this whilst my two year old was crawling all over me.

Please declare interest below.

I want to point out before the game starts that my choice of avatars was purely coincidental :D

Guys, please slow it down a little - I can't quite keep up with all these requests / levels of excitement.

Question: does the Seer get a free peek at the start of the game on a Town-aligned player?

"Life": sitting in a library choking down convoluted neuro naming conventions 4dayz.

"Lets not even agree on a common language or point of reference before shitting up the field with bullshit terminology" ~ every neurofolk ever

Yeah I gotta sit this one out. I'll read through it after though. Maybe it's a good thing, you guys get to finally experience the game without me nosediving town into the center of the sun.

I only have a phone right now due to things breaking and severe procrastination. So I can't really play until I sort something out.

If Sinny agrees to join, we could begin with 9.

Now-ish would be a good time, because from the 17th onwards I'll be working away and may not have time to get online.

Well, I'd be lying if I said I was busy... Although, I feel that I wouldn't be as invested as everybody else, and I have trouble with my attention span..

BUT... If you guys wanna play, like now-ish - I can join, and try to be the best team player that I can be :angel:

I can only suggest that you assume everybody is in, and dispatch the official PM's - see what comes back.
