Guilt is an outmoded concept, the refuge of those who have yet to embrace the fact that their path is the correct one.




In the speakeasies of New York City, drunken patrons bandy about fantastical tales of Shine, a batch of moonshine that triggers extraordinary abilities in those who drink it. To most people, Shine is just an urban legend, and Prohibition is just the Man trying to keep the common people from their alcohol.

In a small number of backroom speakeasies, however, Shine is real, and Prohibition has long since ceased being about alcohol. To a small but growing group of customers, Shine makes flight, telekinesis, or telepathy a matter of a couple drinks. There is a darker side of Shine, however - Shine affects the mind as well as the body, and several of those who drink it have gone mad - or worse, become monsters. A less exotic threat, but no less dangerous, is organized crime. Flush with the power and influence of Shine, organized crime has become bolder and bolder, and the newly organized FBI struggles to contain their influence.


Shine is a flavorful closed-setup game of Mafia for 21 players.

General Rules:
  • Standard Mafia Rules are in effect for this game. Don't be a dick.
  • Twilight posting after the hammer is acceptable, but the thread will be closed when the flip is posted.
  • No replacements will be allowed beyond Day 1 - please don't sign up if you aren't going to put actual effort into this game.
  • Days will be ~24-36 hours (or more, depending on weekends) and Nights will be ~12-24 hours. Nights will be closed but I'll reopen the thread promptly.
  • Votes will be by majority, and no-lynches are possible.
  • Anti-Lurking Rule:
    • If you don't make at least 10 posts in a game day, you will be HATED the next game day and require one less vote to lynch.
    • If you are already HATED and do not make at least 10 posts the following game day, you will be MODKILLED.
    • The above rules will be disregarded if hammer happens more than 2 hours before deadline, and will probably only be in effect for the first 2-3 game days.

I've used it before and been pretty happy with the results, yeah.

Also - this game may take a little bit to fill since it's pretty big. Tell your friends! It'll be a good time!

I'm really looking to run an active game, and I've put a lot of effort into encouraging that in various ways. Your track record isn't the best here, though I know part of that is due to time zones. Are you good to go for this game?

~~~

Also, general question for the peanut gallery. It looks like we should be able to kick off tomorrow morning - how does a 36-hour D1 sound, with subsequent days running between 24-36 from there? Too short, or just right? (Basically, start in the morning of one day and finish in the evening of the next day.)

You are all excellent people for signing up and I am super excited to get this game rolling!

To HiipFire's credit he has been actively participating in games lately.

Especially after the Lynch All Lurkers style push seen recently in many mafia games.
