That is why I put (unresolved) next to the paranoid thing noting that it is something that is case by case.

And Monkey, I didn't go through everyone's GM interpretations. But in the thread there are some cases where someone says, “What about X?” and two people agree with them. That is where a lot of the role stuff came from.

It was very emphatic that the paramedics should not be able to protect bodyguards, for example.

I understand. I go against the majority for most of my rules anyway so I doubt I'd ever be in an agreement with many other players.

I'm considering semi-retiring the mafia comic. The catch-up isn't going so well and I'm afraid I might not be able to keep up with it even if it is caught up.

But semi-retire I mean that I will stop making pages based on narration or if I do, it will only be occasionally. I will still put up any related art in the comic (I can catch and keep up with that at least), but I don't think making pages is working out anymore. I don't have the time for it and I really want to work on some other projects. If people still want to make pages to be put up, that is fine with me. Starting on Sunday, I will start catching up all the image files until now. I will also have a summary and link to the games.

So if anyone has anyone has anything they want to add for the archives, please do it quickly. In fact I will put up a release schedule. One game a day with the exception of 13 and 14.

11/21 - 11/27: The rest of 13 (if there is any left I don't have up), a couple of extras from 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20

11/28 - 12/4: 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27

(And so on)

Release schedule update: Mafia 17: The Madness Continues was almost entirely drawn by Rokulily pictures. There are 26 images for it, so I'm going to be releasing it in four chunks. 6 to 7 per day.

The first part will be up on Wednesday.

Crazy roles from my dream (that I had to give rules to)

Mad Dog - Mafia member. Can bring someone of their choice down with them when they get lynched.

Chivalrous Knight - Something like a medic, only they will sacrifice their lives for the person they protect.

Tomato Spy Kid - I really don't know what this role was about because in that dream I crumpled up the role sheet and redubbed myself the vigilante.

I'm dead :(

PP's narration is too confusing for me to follow.

What's confusing about them? I carefully split the narration so that each section clearly follows the death of a single individual. Each part then contains a clue about the identity of the person (or persons) responsible for killing that individual.
Those were my two cents.
If you have any other questions, please deposit a quarter.

I like your narration. In fact: NICE Narration! I just need to educate myself on the players so I can make sense of the clues.

Thank you.

And don't worry about not getting the clues, as of yet. I always try to make the first night clues as hard as possible. Even more so now.

You can thank Ochi for that one. She figured out every single one of my first night clues in 5 minutes flat, during one of my games.
Those were my two cents.

Yeah PP. She can do the same to me. That is why I ask her to help me write the clues when she isn't playing.

Probably not going to run this next GM election, but I would like to ask a question about the game I've been running with.


Does anyone want to play it? I know this sounds a little egotistical, but in the 10 or so times I've tried to run with this concept, I've gotten three votes at most (I think) in any of the elections. I'm starting to think it might be because people don't want to play it. If this is true, I'll shelve it and come up with something else, but I would really like to see this concept run at least once.
RAGE!

Salsa, you'd get my vote if I wasn't always running in vain. I think the idea is great, but maybe simplify a little? Or add something, I think it's a great game already.
Been years since I was here. I've been at rehab since. So uh. Yknow, things got interesting.

Everyone mark your calenders. Jan. 21st is Mafia's second birthday (24th is the comic's). I truely didn't think we would make it this far. If anyone wants to do anything to celebrate (like some art of something). Now would be the time to do it.

IDEA!!!!


I'm going to suggest something be mentioned in one of the quackcasts that happens around that time, but I was wondering.

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in doing a podcast? I would like to have some of the more visible and active members participate. Let me know and if you have any suggestions about who should be in it post them here.
RAGE!

ANOTHER IDEA!!

During one of the many Mafia AIM conversations, I came across an idea. What if we played mafia how it was meant to be played once?

There would not be a huge amount of participation probably, but it would be fun.

In the IRL version of the game there are usually only 4 role holders. One policeman, One medic, and Two mafia.

During the “night” the police says who they wish to arrest. The Mafia says who they want to kill. (Both mafia have to agree on a single person). The medic says who they want to save. (In IRL this is achieved by everyone having there eyes closed and heads down while the “GM” prompts each role in turn to open their eyes and pick someone.)

The “Night” only lasts as long as the decision making.

With the tradition game, during the “Day” the GM gives a narration of what happened (but there are no clues just a silly story) and the “town” discusses the lynch votes.

However during this, people of the town nominate people for the lynch. And the people vote from a choice of the candidates (usually 2-3).

What I'm proposing is a game that would really last an hour rather than days. It would not be Mafia (whatever number) but just a fun mafia related event.

Consider this a lower stress version of mafia. There is less pressure and no real chance for alliances or betrayals.

I think it would be optimal for something like this to be done on a messenger service like AIM. But I think it can also be adapted for the forums (though it may take longer).

What do people think of just giving this a try to have some fun?

As a one time thing sure. I just don't like the idea of no clues your just voting at random.

But that is how the real game is played. There are no clues.

So was there really anyone interested in Mafia: The Podcast or playing Speed Mafia, or were these just a passing fancy?

REAL TIME MAFIA
Yeah sure I may be up for that.
I'd need to be told in advance, as my sleep patterns are currently not in sync with you Americans (Read: They're now normal) so I may be gone at the time you're doing it.
THIS NEW SITE SUCKS I'M LEAVING FOREVER I PROMISE, GUYS.
NOT BLUFFING, I'M GONE IF YOU DON'T FIX IT.
Oh god I'm so alone someone pay attention to me

Hey guys. How about that podcast? I found out what program Hark and Kev use for the Webcomic Review Comic (On The Web) podcasts. (Talkshoe by the way). But I can honestly say I know nothing about podcasting. It would be great if we get some participants on this talking about mafia. I have some points I would like to go over during it (to reduce rambling) but what does everyone else think?

Hey guys. Me again. I am working on getting more comic pages up. This is going to be the roughest month of my life. (It is my last month in the class room and I got a butt load of assignments and projects due.)

I have decided to cut the current comic off after game 50.

I will then start the new comic with game 51.

I hope by then I will be fully caught up and actually able to draw some pages again. But who knows. I have an internship a ways away from home this Fall. I don't know what I will be able to bring with me. Hopefully my husband (or rather my fiance right now) will let me take the scanner.

PS I'm really upset right now because I had made some pages for game 31, but I lost them in the past year. T-T

EDIT: Found the pages.

Alright guys, after game 50, I'll be making The New Drunk Duck Mafia comic. I have decided to change up the layout and do it now so I can beat the layout changes. Since the last layout focuses on the Mafia, I wanted the new one to focus on a townie role. So, what do you think of this edit of the original? I'm still working on it.

I have a few ideas involving medic or detective. I'll try to make them and post them this weekend.
