I've never played before. I want to play, but warning. I'll be a complete Newbie to this.
Here's a quick guide to regular Mafia:
The bad guys, Mafia/Scum, are outnumbered by Townies by at least 3:1. Scum know who each other are and they have a secret thread where they can plot & scheme. During each Night phase, Scum can kill 1 Town player.
The good guys, Town, are in the majority, but each player has no idea what the other players' alignment is. Each Day phase they vote for whoever seems scummiest and whoever gets a simple majority of votes gets lynched.
Town usually has a few Power Roles to help them out: 1) Investigative, 2) Protective, and 3) Roleblocking.
The games are supposed to be balanced so that both Town and Mafia have an equal chance of winning.
More experienced players are required to help the noobs out with definitions and basic gameplay.
I've never played one of these games before, so I will need all the help I can get!
It's a lot easier than it looks.
Don't worry TPS, we'll help you out. It's a lot of fun and it's great to get new players. Welcome!!
I know you need the warm bodies, so I won't /out unless you manage to fill the roster, but don't expect much from me.
I'm pretty much done.
I really don't understand your attitude.
Hey Grandma, Have you considered a content post requirement? If someone is brand new, they should be given a break to learn the game. However, if you are a regular and sign up, have you considered force replacing if they lurk or don't post content after a certain period of time unless on V/LA? Like you have to post one content post every 24 or 48 hours or something? Because people signing up and not posting or not posting content makes the game difficult to play.
Just something I'm throwing out there that can be added to the rules if you want as a mod.
Dood, keep in mind it's a bastard game.
And don't let certain people or things get to you. Remember my glorious meltdown? This shit happens to everyone at some point, and it sucks to no end.
I don't know what your work schedule is, but if you have the time, treat yourself to a big steak dinner and then get shitfaced. It'll help.
