ESTON, HG. Earlier today a professor at the University of Ravenwood was discovered dead from a possible homicide. Professor Ariadne meg-Tullain, 68, worked for the Department of History, teaching Imperial Military History at Neghan College. She went missing earlier this week, though her disappearance was not reported to the authorities until yesterday evening. Local tribal police suspect Dr. meg-Tullain was murdered as it appears she died from repeated blunt force trauma to the back of her skull and was buried in a bog on campus far from her office or home. Her body was discovered early this morning by students Madeline Pszchyna and Gregoire Pelin as they were returning home from a party. Investigators claim there is no sign of a struggle, suggesting Dr. meg-Tullain may have been killed by a friend or colleague. There are currently no leads.

Ravenwood's President, Ulliva Séabhdha, issued a statement in response to the death. "Dr. meg-Tullain was a brilliant academic, beloved colleague, and dear friend," Séabhdha said in her statement. "The community and everyone who knew her grieves today.... I urge anyone with information to come forward immediately, so that, whatever happened to Ariadne, justice can be served."

If you have any information regarding Dr. meg-Tullain's fate, please contact the Hillsbog Tribal Police Department-2nd District detectives at (89)54-1146-2, or at tips@hillsbogpd.gov .

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 minor things like formatting, even if you get caught by the ninja; just be reasonable 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 and emails, as I only check my email every other day or so. But seriously just get PMs you will make everyone much happier with you.

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!

I'ma gonna need some assurances that you will play this game, with a promise that you agree to make at least 5 "substantive" posts a day (at my judgment) or suffer Dire Consequences.

also I am going to make like fifty tribe references so you have to just smile and nod at them
