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


(jump to votecount)

(source)
Many cultures around the Morze believe pelicans feed their young with their own blood, which makes them an easy metaphor for the goddess Love's self-sacrificing nature. As a result many believe that the pelican is one of Her most favored creatures: to see a pelican on Noworoczna means luck and prosperity for the new year, and on the edges of the Imperia this superstition can grow into culthood.
The Pelican Cult of Iskana is the largest church in the city, whose members include some of the most esteemed families in Lower Charnaz. On Noworoczna the cult's penitent, with a lavish indulgence, may rechristen their baptisms, cleansing themselves of sin and renewing their commitment to Love. To the cult's faithful, once the holy water touches your brow you are absolved of all wrongdoing from the previous year.
Today is the first day of the new year and the elites have queued to the baptismal font as they do every year. Only this time nobody would be pardoned. The first person to have their head sprinkled with holy water felt their eyes start to burn, then he screamed in pain and died writhing on the ground. The sacred aspergillum has been cursed! Someone has sabotaged this most holy day. The priests halt the ceremony for fear of redeeming the guilty party while the would-be forgiven eye each other with suspicion. They each wonder who would murder on Noworoczna, why, and how to stop them from killing again.




Welcome to this game of mafia! This is a 15 player closed-setup game. It is a "traditional" game; there will be little that isn't featured on the SA Mafia Wiki. 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.

Please post every day. 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 a majority vote 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's floating.

To sign up, say whether you want to play or be a replacement, and whether or not you have PMs. If you don't have PMs, include your email. I'm "eccoraven" via g-mail. I only check my email once a week, so if you don't have Platinum you should really consider getting it! Additionally, if you live outside of North America, please include your time zone!

If you are living with, or otherwise have regular OOT 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!

Love Eccogames but this is not a signup - some (good) stuff is happening right now and that makes me think I'll probably not have too much free time or spare attention until the 22-23th December at the very least. I assume this will have started by then.

Also, just wanted to drop a local pelican here!

I don't plan on participating in this particular instance, but instead will be spectating the game as it seems like an appropriate current introduction to one of the bedrocks of this subforum.

Good luck to all participants, and avians!

I'm sorry - but my residual PTSD from games long-forgotten in basements long-abandoned still haunts me enough to prevent from fully enjoying the subversive experiences that once gave me such a rush. So please, let me dip my flip flappers gently into the waters, and I promise you we will fly together with the new season.

Hello yes I heard there was a lovely trainwreck here and...



my current game looks like its wrapping up so I'm in

if I roll mason with anyone I am sorry in advance and promise I will do better this game. just don't loving ask me to agree with you we're confirmed when we're not. also you may want to check some colorblindness tests out just in case

Alright, if you are going to mulligan then pull me in before you do. I'd feel bad having the game be postponed when half-full while sitting on the sideline.

Just a note that I'll probably not be very active this first week, up until Saturday or so at the very least. I won't drop below lurker limit but I can be a bit absent. As time stands it'll probably be just jokephase that gets affected, though.

That last post made me laugh. You can mason me with Meen, he's good. And I am demostrably not colorblind, too, I fit all the requeriments! :v:

Edit: Saw the timezone requirement. I know Ecco knows this by now but I am Euro running on European Standard Time, or GMT+1.
