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


(jump to votecount)

The port cities along the Morze are the only nodes to the rest of the world, and the Republic of Rossetia is no exception. Though not as wealthy as Porta Reginae and not as cultured as Alcazar, Rossetia is still cosmopolitan enough for every weary traveler to find comfort. Within its shops and taverns one can purchase any good... or satisfy any pleasure. The gambling rings in particular are especially popular, and have thrived despite constant pressure from the Gendarmes for Morality and Vice (or commonly "Gen X," after the cross of their seal). Their holy soldiers work day at night to stamp down sin and wickedness, but often fail, as the bosses and smugglers and traffickers remain one step ahead of the law.
At least, until now. About once a year the heads of the major mafia syndicates come together for friendly games of chance - knuckles, Dromay Hold-Em, blackspades, hangman, switch and flip, even Big Wheel if there's room. The location of these games is a deeply guarded secret known only by the bosses themselves and their personal retinues. Despite these precautions, an hour after they arrived at this year's site, the goons were surprised to find the doors had been magickally sealed and locked. A second later the window shades slammed shut, blacking out the room. By the time someone thought to cast a flare spell damage had already been done: Julia Parmenos, drug smuggler, had been frozen in a stasis spell with a red X burned onto her forehead. The doors wouldn't unlock and she wouldn't be freed unless the caster recanted or was killed. Somehow the ring had been invaded by vice detectives, and now the only way out was by tooth and nail.

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. 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?

If you haven't posted for a while, I'll prod you with a PM. 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.

Every game day will have a deadline. If majority voting has not been reached by then, the day will end with no execution. Note that if I am ever for some reason unavailable for a deadline I've set, you should assume it to be floating.

Try to only post while sober. You can't play mafia well if you're not sober, and you make the rest of the game more difficult for everyone else too.

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 once a week, so if you don't have PMs you should really consider getting it!

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!

Aaaugh Ecco you suck, I'm in two games already but this flavor is too good to pass up.

Put me down as a replacement, if I die in one of my other ones I'll let you know and bump up to player if this game hasn't started yet.

We're (essentially) halfway there!

Also the gimmick for a previous game returns: you are welcome to PM me with what you would like your character's name, ecco!fantasy culture, and brief biography to be. this is optional and will not affect your role or alignment but might affect your flavor (it will certainly be referenced in any night flavor you receive).

have fun!

Aaaaa dammit, Eccogames are too much fun but I'm in too many games.

Like Twin and Gene, put me on the reserve list, I'll say something if I drop in one of my other games.

I'm just going to move TMM to reserves and say with Beet also in reserves we have 15 with two replacements! hooray.

That isn't true at all. I was irritated the first day because I was scum again and lurked a bit, but then I posted a bunch in the next couple of days before I died.

Just go ahead and remove me from the list. I'm not really interested anymore.
