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


(jump to current votecount)

Lady Clarent had a problem. As the verdant woods and farmland of County AnaÔse transformed into the resplendency of autumn, she could see no beauty and feel no joy. Her heart was filled with anxiety over the coming winter and its promise of undoing her life's work. She's ruled over the county from its seat at Peachtree Hall for the past fifteen years, but she had only produced two heirs, both male: Laurence and Christophe. Her younger sister, Lady Georgette of the Juniper Hills, decided to capitalize on Clarent's weak position by claiming title over AnaÔse for herself. Should Clarent not produce a female heir by the end of the year, under Mereaux law title will revert to Georgette and her four daughters, leaving Clarent and her sons penniless and destitute.
It certainly doesn't help that Clarent is a widow, her husband having died in a freak accident last month. The servants insisted it could have happened to anyone, that the chandelier just happened to fall on Robert as he was standing under it. Clarent, though distraught and in pain, believed them. This morning though her darkest fears became reality: her handmaiden discovered one of the cooks had been murdered during the night.
Clarent is no fool. As she sits alone in the dining hall, she begins to piece together what she knows of Georgette's plot. Whom can she trust?

Welcome to this game of mafia! This is a closed-setup game. However, it is a "traditional" game; there will be little that isn't featured on the SA Mafia Wiki or the Mafia flash thingy. However there might still be some surprises thrown your way! Who knows?

The standard mafia rules apply: don't do anything that could be construed as "not in the spirit of mafia." But I'm not a huge stickler for rules, so as long as you don't break the game it'll probably be fine. For instance, feel free to edit your posts to fix things like formatting, even if you get caught by the ninja; just be honest about it.

However, please remember that I reserve the right to punish someone as I see fit for whatever thing they do.

My unique quirk: please ##unvote before re##voting. I will not count revotes without unvotes unless you are a double-voter. It doesn't matter what votebot says; votebot is just for your convenience, only the votecounts I present are to be assumed accurate and reliable. If you think you see a mistake in a votecount I have posted, please contact me privately so I may check it.

Posting is very important to me, however I will not expect you to be abuzz with posting things left and right. If you haven't posted for a while, I'll probably prod you with a PM casually, maybe with a "hey go post GO POST NOWWWW". If you have a reason why you're not posting, feel free to tell me -- I like to think I'm fairly reasonable. If you aren't posting and it's going to be a chronic problem, I'll ask if you want a replacement; it's up to you, I just want everyone to have a good time, you included. However, if you're put on probation for more than a day, then I will replace you without warning. So don't get probated!

Deadlines are the most effective and easiest way to encourage participation. To that effect, every game day will have a deadline. If majority voting has not been reached by then, the day will end with no hanging. The Day 1 deadline will be at most 5 days long, and they'll only get shorter! Note that if I am ever for some reason unavailable for a deadline I've set, you should assume it to be floating.

To sign up, simply say whether you want to play or be a replacement, whether or not you have PMs, your AIM if you have it, and your email address. I'm "eccoraven" via g-mail. IRC is the best way to get in touch with me outside of PMs, as I only check my email every other day or so.

If you are living with, or otherwise have direct RL contact with, another player in the game, please tell me when signing up. It won't affect your chances for playing the game, I just like to know these things in advance.

Anyway! This game is for 21 players. Players new and old are all welcome, however if space is tight, then preferential treatment will be given to newer players should it come to that.


Here we go!

To fiends new and old alike, I am laying out the following disclaime. This is a eal life situation I PMed the modeato about and he equested I post about it hee so that you all can keep me honest. Let it be known:

me posted:

My r key and x and z keys do not currently work on my computer so I will not be using it to type. Most times I'll have to use my phone. In the past that meant I was "phoning it in" ( :rimshot: ) but I'm going to actually be using my comp to read and gather posts. That being said, I will have to do some after the fact editing with my posts to insert quotes and links and such. I don't anticipate any slipups or editing delays but if I have one I will be sure to PM you immediately and if it's an actual issue I can be replaced. Is that cool with you? Thanks again for the invite though

So yeah gimme a that two minute window and I'll edit the links in and I'm not tying to beak any ules I just wanna play some mafia
