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



(source)
The Uruchi have lived under the sea for as long as they know. Millennia ago their ancestors built vast structures into sea walls and canyons; these cities have special machines that make potable water and breathable air, while geothermal reactors buried far underground provide more than enough energy to power them. The Uruchi harvest seaweed and kelp from underwater forests, raise fish and clams using advanced aquaculture, and mine iron and copper and gemstones from ancient caves on the ocean floor. On the occasions they've sent their ships topside they've found nothing but a limitless ocean, extending beyond the horizon in a beautiful cerulean expanse.
There are seventeen cities, towns, and villages the Uruchi call home, but the greatest of them is Gaqqu - or in Arrentish, "Big Stone." It's there that leaders and representatives from each tribe meet once a year to exchange news, discuss trade deals, resolve disputes, and pay fealty to the Ma'jaruna - their monarch. These moots are generally very pleasant, since the Uruchi live in a world of plenty: they have bountiful food and energy; the borders between tribes are set in stone as they don't have the knowledge to build new settlements; their social structure is fair, liberties are enshrined in various constitutions, and countless generations of peace have made relations between tribes exceptionally genial.
But, as it happens so often in stories like this, something changed. During the Moot of the Fifteenth Year of the Reign of Ma'jaruna Ibis IV, the lights started to flicker, and then turned off entirely. A few seconds later they turned on, though much dimmer than before, and an ancient message began broadcasting throughout Gaqqu. "Reactor warning. Coolant leak on level seventy-seven. Reactor overload in 25 cycles. Immediate attention is required." The message then repeated, ad infinitum.
The chambers for the moot became frenzied. What does this message mean? None of the Uruchi knew how the reactor worked, certainly not enough to fix it. They turned to their Ma'jaruna for help, but she was just as frightened. She knew more than most though - she told them that the reactors are located deep in the vaults of Gaqqu. They can only be reached by a special, high-pressure submarine, which she had been using as a storage closet. She didn't know how to fix the reactors, or even where to begin to find out how, but as long as they stick together, they can solve this crisis and --
A few seconds later an explosion ripped through the hull of Gaqqu. Water flooded into the moot's chambers. Only twenty-one members of the moot managed to escape; the rest, including Ibis, were smashed by the rushing water or drowned beneath the waves. As the survivors caught their breath, the adrenaline left their systems and their minds cleared. Where did that explosion come from?
"From inside the chamber," one of the survivors said. A few agreed with him. "I didn't see who," he continued, "but, it came from someone. A fireball, shot from someone's hands, right into the ceiling. Shattered the awning and collapsed the whole chamber." The shaken men and women still weren't sure exactly what had happened, but the more they shared stories about what they saw, the clearer it became. Someone had attacked them, someone within the moot, someone they all knew and trusted, and that that someone might still be alive, waiting to strike and finish the job.
Two horrible truths were learned that day. Firstly, that their lives would never be the same again until they found the monsters responsible for this attack and brought them to justice. And secondly, that, apparently, magick fire
can melt steel beams.

Welcome to this game of mafia! It's been a while. 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. Votebot finally supports this functionality, and so there should rarely be a discrepancy between my counts and its. I may even stop doing hand counts entirely; how strange would that be? O brave new world that has such machines in't.

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. 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, 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 it!

One last note: 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 felt bad at the end of that game because I was with gulag and was fairly certain Sam was the final scum. But I was also asking for Sam to NK me so I figured I would only argue the point if I was rudely kept alive.
