there is only one hell:
the one we live in now






The port city of Rubirge is the regional capital for the Ruby Coast, named for its glimmering red waters caused by coral blooms far below the surface. Its docks are some of the most bustling avenues of trade in Arrentia, helping to connect the Empire to her many distant corners. But this story isn't about the greed of its merchants or the intrigue in its mansions, but rather the city's more humble class of citizen.
The urchins of Rubirge live in the shadow of wealth and power but have neither. Still, they manage to eke out an existence whatever way they can - usually petty burglary and pickpocketing. One gang, the Talons, managed to break into the home of one of the Ruby Merchants and steal three magic coins. Though, they didn't know the coins were magickal, they just wanted to sell them at the market for some steak and bread and wine. Would that they had known, though, then maybe they could have avoided the diresome happenings which were about to befall them.
As the gang gathered in their alley and looked at their spoils, the coins began to hypnotize them. With a coin in their hands the holder felt powerful beyond measure, like they could, with the flip of their coin, leave this rotten neighborhood behind and live in luxury. They began to quarrel, each orphaned girl and boy wanting the coins for themselves. Soon they lost sight of the coins - someone had palmed them! - and the children fought each other in earnest trying to find their treasure.
Suddenly there was a flash of metal, a cry of pain, and a splash of blood. When the dust cleared, one of the urchins was dead, a metal dagger lodged in the boy's throat. The urchins stood in an uneasy circle around each other - someone in their midst was a murderer. With nobody stepping forward with a confession, and with all three coins still unaccounted for, the Talons had to trust no one.

You recall this living nightmare, you take comfort in its familiar pain. You smell fermentation and can hear a dull, unending beeping. Someone shouts in a language you do not know.
You love your family. YOU. LOVE. THEM.
Welcome to Red Lobster. Come see what's fresh. Today.

I dont know what a Tao Jones is but Ecco never starts her games when she says she will. It's part of her charm.

An Ecco PromiseTM is the cheap former-Soviet-bloc knockoff of a normal promise.

I've never pulled a tao jones!! Tao disappears, I'm always around. I think once though I just was on the struggletrain to nowheretown and had to reschedule it for a few months later.

So this being my first game and all I only have knowledge of the way it works from reading basically the wikipedia page on it.

Can you explain how this will work for me please Ecco?

Oh okay!

Okay well I have a setup ready (e.g. 5 mafia, 3 cops, 2 doctors, 5 vanilla town). I will use a random number generator to see who gets which roles. I will then write a Role PM for everyone, which will include: your role, your alignment, and your flavor "character" (who are you? what's your deal? why do you want these coins to badly?). The character is just flavor but I always secretly reward people who roleplay.

You and everyone else will receive their PMs tomorrow night (probably around 8pm eastern/5pm pacific). The game will then begin; vote by typing ##vote player, our automatic vote-counting-robot will keep tabs on them. Post and try to find scum, or likewise try to hide and get townies to vote each other.

Good luck! If you have any further questions about Mafia: As She Is Played, just ask in the thread. Everyone in this game is being compelled to tell you truthful and objective answers about how mafia works under penalty of modkill.

You'll get about 3 RL days, with 1 RL night to submit actions (or discuss with your scumbuddies).

Votes are made in the thread yep.

Game days will usually be 2-3 real life days, especially at the start of the game. Votes go in thread. People will then start denigrating each other because of said votes until it becomes Lord of the Flies, kill or be killed, every man, woman and child for themselves. At this point we will all "turbo" or rush to vote the same player in an adrenalin high brought on by the realization that we will get to live for another day. I recommend starting with Capitalist Pig on day 1 because he likes to tell people how dumb and wrong they are and why deny him the privilege.

It then becomes "night" and we all get a chance to relax until it starts all over again.

Gridlocked question are you an Shanakin real life friends or internet friends?

If you are real life friends then I am going to preemptively make you Unconfirmed Masons (see the wiki) so you can talk about the game in real life together.

If you are internet friends then I'll probably do the same thing but no promises.
