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


(jump to votecount)

The Lacenda estate was built as a pleasure garden for one of the River Kings. At its height, it was a quintessential example of Livireen decadence. Elegant fountains punctuated gardens of bushy ferns and hyacinths, while the orchards were lush with rows and rows of oranges and pomegranates. The interior of the (relatively) modest home was a meeting of gold and ivory and pearl, interwoven from statues of the Kings' family to the surrounding furniture and walls, creeping like vines throughout the manor. Lacenda's master would sleep on beds of linen and Cazanese silks.
But that was before the Arrentish Liberation. Once the River Kings were ousted, the estate was looted, ripped apart, and partially destroyed by arson.
A few years later, with a grant from the newly-appointed county authority, a petty noble who escaped the revolution with his head and his family acquired the estate. He rebuilt it into a farm, hiring workers and replanting the orchards. When he died, his son continued the work, rebuilding the destroyed wing of the manor and raising a series of cottages for the servants. By the fifth generation, Lacenda had returned to an echo of its former splendor as a profitable plantation with almost two dozen indentured serfs under its master's dominion.
Now while the Liberation officially ended Livireen law, the shambling governments it bore can barely manage their own affairs let alone enforce its increasingly nonsensical legislation outside city walls. Those in the countryside have no courts or magistrates, and resolve their disputes by the sword.
A week ago, Augusto Despino, the sixth holder of the renewed Lacenda estate, died without issue and without a will. Under traditional Livireen intestate succession the property would pass to his closest paternal male heir: his third cousin once removed, also named Augusto. And so Augusto Despino II left for Lacenda expecting it would be his by right. When he arrived though he found it was already occupied by the late master's sororal niece, Aemilia Peiraņa. She insisted it was hers. Augusto disagreed, and vowed to kill "that half-breed witch" and anyone who supported her claim.
That night, the servants gathered by the fire of the smithy's forge. They realized this was their chance: while the masters were distracted with their squabbling, the servants could just kill them both, and then finally they could be free.

As dawn broke, Lacenda stood in an uneasy silence, as if the building itself waited with anticipation for the violence to come.

Welcome to this game of mafia! This is a 21 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 (but I know you don't anymore), and your email address. I'm "eccoraven" via g-mail. I only check my email every other day or so, so if you don't have PMs you should really consider buying platinum already!

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!
