Definitely been seeing this. I wasn’t sure if it was my phone though (work blocks this. The horror).

It resulted in at least one double post & a few errors that I probably should have documented that looked db related.

More in a bit?

I'll be at PAX Unplugged in Philly this weekend, including all day Friday. Let me know if I can bump into any of you there.

We'll be there with the baby and a few other friends. Likely parked at tabletop freeplay all weekend. Look for what is probably the only table with a baby at it.

So, I didn't do a good job of looking for you guys, sorry. The weekend was pretty packed with variety, I just didn't get to a point where I was going to be in any one spot for a longish time. Though many games were played, I only spent one hour of playing unplanned games in the free-play area.

Is there a way to share your schedule with friends via the PAX app? That could have been a way to meet up. I didn't see such a feature, though.

Alternately, here’s to eating more humans, night after night.

And to beating the ever living crap out of Campa.

So I was out sick yesterday and did the responsible thing and just slept in, rather than working from home and reading email.

I get in today, expecting maybe a handful of email messages because frankly I don't get that many. Instead, I find an email chain of over twenty messages titled:

"WHERE TO BUY LEGAL MARIJUANA??"

This should be an interesting day.

It was all sizzle and no steak, in the end.

Some of our pricing actuaries wanted to get some details on which states have legalized marijuana, what restrictions there are, and how it can be sold, so we can start building that risk into our models.

(And of course, that email header is going to sit in retention for fifty years waiting to be picked up by some legal discovery search at some point.)

It's quiet, too quiet :( . Let's hope everything's ok in everyone's lives

Whatever happened to the game we were planning? I'm willing to GM one quick game, full Vanilla, no specials (depending on the players) and our usual 24 day cycles with 48 hrs on weekends, so if we can get some players back let's do it.

Speaking of, I got a request recently to play a message for you lot connects a megaphone on a tape player

INVITATION TO THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP (SEASON 6)

Ahoy there! :)

I’m very excited to invite your community to participate in Season 6 of the Mafia Championship.

The Mafia Championship is an annual forum-based tournament series that pits representatives from various online Mafia (aka Werewolf) communities against one another as they compete to determine the Internet’s greatest forum Mafia player. Each participating community democratically elects one person to represent them and be their “Champion”.

The tournament first started back in 2013. Since then, 270+ different communities and 50+ different nationalities have been represented.

It’s a super fun event that has created many new friendships and close bonds between communities. I hope that you would be interested in taking part :)

1. DO YOU ACCEPT THE INVITATION?

If your community wishes to participate, please confirm your participation to Thingyman as soon as you can to ensure yourselves a spot. Currently, the plan is to accommodate 187 communities this season (last season featured 170 communities), and if interest is high enough we will expand even further to 204.

If your community agrees to participate, the deadline for selecting your representative is April 26, but the sooner the better.

The games will take place on Mafia Universe. If it’s okay, I can link directly to the general discussion thread regarding this topic on Mafia Universe.

Important notes
  • You may decide yourselves how you want to elect your representative, but we highly recommend some sort of democratic process (public nominations followed by a poll usually works out well).
  • In addition to electing a representative, you should also name an alternate who will be asked to step in if the first choice needs to back out.
  • Your representative should be prepared for having to read upwards of 600 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game. Additionally, there’s a requirement that each player must make at least 10 posts per Game Day. Only active players should apply/participate. I repeat: Your chosen player needs to be able to promise a good amount of activity on a daily basis.

2. SEASON 6 FORMAT

The tournament structure
  • 187 communities will participate, each sending one representative.
  • QUALIFIERS: 11 Qualifying Games will be played, consisting of 17 players each. I.e. every representative plays in one Qualifying Game. The players themselves vote post-game to determine who is deserving of advancement. 1st place will advance directly to the Finale Game (i.e. 11 of the 17 finalists are found this way), while the 2nd place finishers will advance directly to one of the two Wildcard Games.
  • WILDCARDS: A Jury consisting of finalists from Season 5 will discuss and vote to determine 23 players in total deserving of a second chance. They will play in 2 Wildcard Games along with the aforementioned 2nd place finishers that advanced directly to these games. From each game, three players will advance to the Finale Game based on a post-game player vote, just like in the qualifying phase.
  • THE FINALE: The Finale Game is played. Once it has completed, the players vote to determine who shall receive the title of Season 6 Champion and a winner’s certificate signed by Dmitry Davidoff, the creator of mafia.
This year’s setup: Mad17
The setup is called Mad17 and features 17 players.

13x Town
4x Mafia


Each of the following 17 roles will be assigned at random to one player in the game without regard for the player's alignment. Each role is restricted to using its action only on the nights listed on the chart.

Image

Relevant mechanics info
- Day start
- Role reveals at death are alignment only. You will not learn a player's exact role when they die.
- Majority is not in effect.
- Votes are automatically locked in at LYLO.
- Mafia factional kills are assigned. They can be tracked, watched, or roleblocked.
- Mafia share a factional Night Kill, which is a single standard shot for their faction.
- Mafia members may perform the faction kill in addition to their regular action at the same time.
- Mafia may communicate at any time.
- Tied votes will result in a player being lynched at random from among the tied players.
- Each individual player may make a maximum of 200 posts per day phase (this restriction is lifted 2 hours before day end).
- The game will have a host to oversee everything and make sure everyone’s following the code of conduct, but otherwise the game is completely automated (automatic votecounts, thread locks and reveals roles automatically, the bot receives and processes actions, etc.).

3. SEASON 6 TIMELINE

There will be 11 Qualifying Games, and your representative plays in just one of these. They will have start dates during the months of April, May and June. So in other words, as long as your representative can play sometime during that period, they should be good and I’ll make sure they get scheduled into a game that suits their schedule well. I.e. if your rep is busy until June, that isn’t a problem.

Wildcard games will be played in July, and the Finale Game sometime in August/September (whenever we can work out something that suits everyone).

If you want to get in contact with me ASAP, you can find me on Discord (Thingyman#6075).

Kind regards,
Thingyman

The sound eventually fades, but you swear you heard something coming from the shoggoth tank.

Even if we can't participate in the tournament, let's hope to breathe some life into this forum

Hey gang. March Madness is aptly named. I’m down for vanilla. Wouldn’t mind something with a bit of kink either.

Either way, more in a bit?

Sorry folks, was gearing up to run a game and then shortly after I got back from my conference... BAM. Walked into a department re-org. Dealing with the chaos and the fallout was sapping, to say the least. I can probably start the game up soon, so I'll see about getting the boards up this week. Aim to start next Mondayish?

You should be careful since I've heard that there's a number of werewolves in London and they're known to have perfect hair.

In for a game is someone tosses one together. Might try the GESC as well to try and recruit some new people/let others know in case they aren't checking the boards that often.

Perhaps we can spice up the game by adopting this version of the game.
