    Thanks, Avatar. I've learned I'm pre-diabetic, and that even having four pieces of raisin bread can knock me into a coma-like state for 4 hours. No joke. What's odd is that I visited my grandfather a few days ago, and he checked my blood glucose with his own monitoring device, and mine was 122, which he said was relatively good. Eating sugar or glucose knocks me out, like morphine, and I need to avoid it even though cutting it out cold-turkey is extremely difficult. I spent some of the day going on a 10-mile bike ride to try and bolster my health, and am now eating carrots and sweet potatoes to aid in regulating glucose levels.

    Alright. I'll be sending out PMs to let everyone know the game is about to begin, and to make sure players are ready to play. Avatar4321 requested to not receive one, so that will be honored. By responding to that PM making sure you're good to go, I'll then randomize and send you your role PM, and once 10/14 Role PMs are confirmed, the gates will open and the game will begin. :badgrin::D:lol:

    Hi dblack, I wasn't able to send you a PM. If you're good to go with this game, I'll send you your Role PM shortly. :razz:[MENTION]dblack[/MENTION] Avatar I'll send your Role PM soon, too. ;-)

    See about getting an A1c test done if you haven't already.

    Yes sir, I'm in and thanks for keeping it simple.

    As for 'kinks' there should be some guidelines for a players who gets banned or just doesn't participate.
    Preferably, I'd like to see them eliminated not replaced.

    And dang it, I want an AWESOME death scene this time around! :evil:

    PS-one more demand: Please remember the time zones. :) thank you ;)

    Role PMs are now being generated and sent.

    I've decided to give a very mild flavor to this simple game, which will help me dig up some creative death scenes. :badgrin:

    Time zones, ach, I'm not sure about. As in how to handle. That's one challenge in Mafia. I'll go according to central time (because I don't know how to go by other times), for now. Day 1 will also last 10.5 days, to give you all more time to use.

    [MENTION=44124]Wake[/MENTION]... one question that I thought of during the last game (and, apologies if you've already addressed this):

    Is a vote binding as soon as there is a majority? What if someone unvotes before you've officially recognized the majority? The reason I asked is because I noticed a nice strategy opportunity to draw out the scum by watching for them to 'leap' - especially in the later rounds - on a vote that would kill a townie. Is it fair to tempt them into that and then quickly unvote before the Mod recognizes the majority vote? Or is the vote binding as soon as the majority is reached? Am I 'lawyering' this too much?

    BTW There can never be too much lawyering.

    As soon as a majority vote is met, that player's fate is sealed.

    This is why it's pretty important to take your time in deciding whose neck to snap. :badgrin:
