Well, this is it. The party has stopped it's travelling in a remote pass in Toril, and has decided that the problems must stop. You see, several of the party members have been replaced by creatures of a truly evil sort, who are out to destroy one of the greatest groups of adventurers ever to walk the surface of this world.

I'm looking for at least 17 players, more if we can. Advertise on other heavens to get this going please. We'll start in 1 week.

Perhaps, though such commentary doesn't exactly help the situation.

Thanks, all 3 of you.

Seriously guys, I'm more then a little dissappointed. When I first moced in, things were quite active and happy around here. What changed?

I have to agree with Hobo to a large extent. Maybe not dead, but in a deep coma that's for sure. What's changed? I don't know exactly, but we have lost a lot of the players who were around in the heyday. They were vocal, analytical and active - exactly what a mafia game needs (and I don't mean this as a dig at the newer players). Obviously, I am not going to delve into all the details, but if you want a turning point, I will offer one: games became huge, convoluted and highly unpredictable, roles became high-powered and sometimes over-powered (and all of us mods were, to some extent, guilty of this at some or other stage), day starts became too familiar. Players became uncertain and therefore often timid, particularly given the fact that those who weren't were often lynched quickly. So days dragged on forever... It took a couple of slow games (really slow games) and people became disinterested. Problem is that the disinterested players didn't always stop signing up, which meant that even more people became disinterested (I am the first one to admit heaving a sigh of relief when Darth said he couldn't mod his game as I had signed up more out of habit than actual eagerness to play). If mods want my advice (even if they don't I will give it), we need to consider modding smaller, faster, simpler games. In SA, one of the banks used to have a (highly ironic) slogan: simpler, better, faster, and that's something we could possibly internalise for mafia. There's always space for a non-standard role here or there, but wholesale inclusion of bizarre roles does not necessarily improve the game.

I hope you get your 17 players Watchwood, but unfortunately I won't be able to play - I need a break I think. Good luck!

Setting aside my knee-jerk reaction to yell in rage and call you all a number of nasty names for ignoring an awesome game, I have to admit that you're probably right. Sad, but true. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go and cry.

How about we start a C9-setup newbie-type? That way we could attract people.

I'll play. That makes 5. And if hobo stops complaining about how dead HH is and actually signs up that'll make six.

Since the other mafia game is close to winding down, I imagine we'll get a few more players to sign up soon.

Or you can log in to here once a week and see, given the rate at which things usually progress here.

If we can get up to 13, I think I can make this game work.

watchwood, why don't you add the names of those who have signed up so far in your title post. That way folks just looking in know that we actually do have some folks who want to play.

And where the hell is street hobo? Why hasn't he signed up yet?

I'm sick of playing (and modding) the huge slow games, sorry guys.

I'd play a quick C9 though.

I would open signups for a c9, but sadly I lack the new topic button.
