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


(jump to votecount)


The tender hillside of Nolaisko sits on the border between the harsh rocky mountains of the Jaharod and the peaceful rolling valleys of Vercy. It is a quiet region, far enough away from the major trade routes to avoid attention but still close enough to civilization to avoid barbarism. The Laiskadun people are similarly peaceful - farmers and herders, mostly. They mistrust outsiders, since why would anyone want to be in the Valley except to cause trouble, but their piety tells them to accept strangers as if they were family, for not doing so would be even more shameful than whatever chaos the rest of the world would bring.
A few years ago, however, a convent of Arrentish nuns arrived, bringing with them their strange and foreign religions. The Sisters of Asi'ina didn't participate in the community's festivals or holidays, they believed the world was born from a seed rather than a sheep (heathens!), and the few times locals have tried to ask them for help they balked.
So when local children started disappearing from nearby villages with their bodies turning up near the nuns' homes, the townspeople very reasonably responded by burning the convent to the ground. The next day the mayor who made the decision woke up very dead, burned alive from the inside-out, with a strange symbol burned onto her chest.




Welcome to this game of mafia! This is a 15 player 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.


Here we go!

Perfectly logical poster who uses the tools available to him to come to solid conclusions



I'd really like to play, but I'm already in the Trojan War game and am wary of playing two at once.

Ecco, if you don't get the players you need and decide to put the game up again at a later time, I'd love to play then.

The new player count is 13.

I just realized if there are nuns does that mean that Catholicism is a thing in the Ecco verse or are these generic nuns following a fictional but all-powerful god (monotheistic) or are we talking more polytheistic?
