The Mafia Discussion Thread

Post by JenovaPX » Thu Oct 30, 2014 1:13 am

So this thread is a place for mafias to be organised and discussed in order to keep up to date with everything that's happening. It's a place for people to declare any interest in hosting a game and to get general feedback from users and gauge interest in the games at the time as well as to keep a list of the old games hosted on here and on ONM.

Hopefully this thread will keep mix ups from happening so everyone knows who is hosting what game and when, just so we don't have multiple games at once or someone who's had a game planned sniped from them by someone just posting a sign up thread. It will also make for a place for new players to ask questions and get a rough idea of how to play.

Ideally if you wish to host you should have a game in mind of some sort, be it vanilla or themed, with clues or without, or any sort of other variation. If you are in the planning stages of hosting a game then by all means post here and you'll be placed on the in development list, once you've finished planning you'll be placed onto the upcoming games list and shall wait for an appropriate time to play. Due to the state of mafia games on ONM I think it's a better idea to space games out to no more than one a month or something similar, just to keep interest fresh and stop the cluster of games we saw towards the end of ONM, this however is just my opinion and of course if people disagree we will host when people think best.

Useful links for new players

A document guide to mafia by Kryal

The mafiascum wiki, everywhere generally runs these games in their own unique way and so this wiki isn't set in stone but there is still lots of useful information within on roles and the like. Several users often use this as a guide to getting roles other than the usual generic lot.

List of roles So Hoyle very kindly (strange for him) compiled a list of a large number of roles he's encountered and roles he's found from all over the place. A very useful list for hosts and players alike, particularly for reminding people just how much variation there is and that just because you haven't heard of a role doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Rules for hosting

-You know how the games work. You have to understand all the different roles and structures of the games, this extends beyond knowing how to play. If you sign up to host you need to know how to actually host a game.
-You have the time to update. I know people have lives and work and other commitments but if you are a host you must be prepared to make regular updates for the duration of the game, typically daily.
-Ideally you'll have experience hosting before. This goes hand in hand with the first rule really but we're a new forum now and new blood will hopefully be injected into the boards soon making this really more of a preference. If you have hosted before on this FG&Q board and it's gone terribly then you may see requests being denied. Let's try to keep things going South because someone PMd you saying X is dropping out and you just taking their word for it.
-You're respectful of this system. I don't care how old you are. I don't care if you're in a high end job. I don't care how long you've been on the internet. I don't care if you know how to act on a forum.

If you have any questions feel free to ask of course.

Credit to GhostofWinthrellSnow and his Archive Bot for pretty much saving a ton of work on my behalf to archive all these. I have filled in the gaps though by archiving some of the spin-off games that have been missed.

If there are any holes in this, please let me know.

If Evil Ted's still getting nowhere by the time I get back Saturday/Sunday then I'll put up sign ups for Aren's Super Broken Mafia Where Everyone Will Probably Die and hopefully start it towards the end of next week.

If people insist, I can try shoehorn it in on the roles. Badly. But otherwise, no.

After making that Mafia Archive website, including all the small games, I might be willing to reboot Italian Job again. The format will probably be based on the more developed second version of the game which had more employers.

Essentially, its like the Kingmaker variant but expanded to include common Mafia roles. So instead of someone who is the detective, they can choose someone to be the detective. So if you aren't an employer you will be a vanilla.

For the second game I had it so that the Employers had a limited number of backups between them. I might cut back on the number of Employers though because the second game had 7 of them including a Werewolf Employer that didn't last long.

Its an experimental concept, but people who've played it before liked the idea behind it all.

My thread was just a general place to organise mafia games. Rik and Aren142 said they wanted to use that thread first.

It'll probably be easier for them to start from a clean thread so people know exactly what they're signing up for and when it'll be as well as what variation of things they'll be using, but that's just what I'd prefer to go for, I mean some people I'm sure who signed up probably haven't followed this.

So long as I stick around I'd be up for trying out mafia again, although I'm pretty rusty, likewise if I stick around I'd be up for hosting a game at some point more than likely, once I was more familiar with the game again

Honestly, a game is coming. Just when I'm less dead.

I left for a while, wasn't in a great, place, honestly still not really in a good place, but I missed the forum, and the people, considering it's a new site, and a fresh start, I thought I'd come back

Mafia wise, as I said all for it, really missed playing.
