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


(jump to current votecount)

Port Lourde is the largest town on the largest island in the largest archipelago along the northern Mereaux coast. Its 22 inhabitants are almost entirely fishermen, thin and sinuous young men with forearms the size of swordfish and egos to match. The sea's bounty is vast and varied, and they are never in want for food or shelter, but truth be told there is nothing else here but ocean: salt and stone and the ever-present smell of hot raw fish. Many have considered leaving the island far behind, but poverty and onerous Mereaux immigration restrictions keep them trapped. So when one of the oystermen discovered a beautiful blue pearl the size of a melon, the town was abuzz: what should be done? They had all shared their spoils equally, but this pearl would be worth a limitless fortune. Whoever had it could leave this island and never hear the caw of a seagull or the crash of a wave ever again.
The next morning the pearl's finder was brutally murdered in his sleep, his treasure stolen. The mayor, a weathered old man with only seven teeth, called everyone to the town square. He said, in a voice cracked by age, that the murderer(s?) would be brought to justice the only way they knew how: dashing their heads on stones and returning them to the sea from whence they came.

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!

The Pearl of Port Lourde will open sometime this week.

It is about poor fisherman who find a giant pearl and are driven by greed and desire to destroy each other over it.

This is a wholly unique idea that has never been seen before by anyone ever.

I mean there are only like 5 stories anyway so.
