Rules and Conditions.
Veteran players only.
The
GM needs to posses a fair understanding on how the game runs. Therefore
we require that the applicant has played the game at least twice
No encore performance.
As
the current GM, it is up to me to pass the title to someone new. Once
you're done running a game, you will also be expected to give someone
else a chance. Don't start a new game. Instead you will run an election
like this one where we pick a new GM. Also, you can't be a candidate
yourself. This will ensure that we get new blood into the game and that
the rules are regularly picked at from a different perspective. GMs from
older games are free to run again and are encouraged to do so. Who
knows? If they were good enough, people will flock to play their game
again.
Explain your goal.
What do you plan to do
as the new GM? Are you going to run a standard Mafia game? If so, will
you change the rules/roles and/or introduce new ones? Are you perhaps
gonna play a game with a different theme? Reverse Mafia perhaps or maybe
zombie apocalypse? If so explain the new structure of the game.
Changing the formula is OK. It happens in almost every game. Just be
careful not to introduce a change so radical that it could scare people
away from voting you. You can discuss rule changes and different themes here to see if people would like it.
Pick a schedule and stick with it
It
is important that the GM is punctual in maintaining the game. Do you
plan to post narrations every 24 hours at a specific time? If so, make
sure that you'll be here to on time to do so. If something comes up that
would force you to be early or late, post a warning to let people know
with an explanation. It's encouraged that you run the game using GMT
timezone schedule since the players hail from all over the world,
spanning different time zones and a GMT conversion table is the easiest
one for everyone to access. If you plan on using a different time zone
schedule like an American one, Make sure you advertise it well and post
an appropriate conversion table for everyone to access.
An example of a GMT conversion table:Gertrude veribles.

“Here's
how it works. Figure out where in the world you live and locate that
place on the map. Follow the line you're living in down to the bottom of
the map and locate a number down there. Use that number to change the
time that the GM gives (as long as he's using GMT, that is). For
example, if the GM says that something will happen at 6 pm and your
living in a -5 zone, it means that it will happen at 1 pm, your time. If
you live in a +5 zone, it means that it will happen at 11pm.”
Also for those living in America, here's a handy time table to show you at what time you can expect the narrations.

Show us your stuff
The
GM is expected to write narrations to explain what's going on
throughout the game. A good writer can make the game come alive and
encourage players to come back to read what's going on. Show us your
stuff and create a scenario where YOU(the applicant) kill ME (the
election holder). In this narration it is important that you do not
directly tell us that it was you who committed the crime but instead
leave a clue that's based on your name, avatar, signature, profile,
comic(if you have any), something that can link you to the crime. Try
making a link to you that can be figured out with some research, while
at the same time is not blatantly obvious. You can throw in red herrings
but please refrain from directly connecting the herrings to innocents.
Make them instead vague things that could point at many people. Finally,
be creative, funny, dramatic, brutal, serious, descriptive, vague, long
winded or short and to the point. Pick the style you feel comfortable
with and would like to use. Impress us with what you can do. At the end
of the narration post an explanation that shows people how the clues
link to you so that we can understand your logic.
I'll be posting the
applicants sample narrations in the second post for people to quickly
read through. Once we have enough applications I will announce when it's
time to vote for your favorite GM. Applicants do not need to vote since
it's given that they'll be voting for themselves. Although if they wish
to vote for someone else, they can do so.

I think I'm gonna run. Someone just send me the format, I can't seem to dig it up anywhere.
Been years since I was here. I've been at rehab since. So uh. Yknow, things got interesting.

Since I've now been asked twice to help dig up the classic rules, here's a link to the last normal game that I ran, featuring all the vanilla roles. Just ignore the special serial killer that I added for that game (man with ball hat):

Mafia XLII: Number Wars!

There is no good or bad side! It is everyone vs. everyone. Build your own alliances. Betray your own alliances! It's all good.

The game will be broken up into night and day cycles. Lynch and Actions. But in this game everyone has the ability to kill!

Everyone will be given a random number. The possible numbers go from 1-(How many players). After each cycle the numbers will change with each number getting +1. The highest number will change to the lowest. At night you can target a player to kill. If you have a higher number you kill the person. If you have a lower nothing happens. A special rule: the lowest number can kill the Highest number. Clues will be given to both the identity of the potential killer and victim.

You can form alliances by each member of the alliance pqing me telling me each player in the alliance. If I do not get a pq from each player of the alliance the alliance is invalid. The max members in one alliance is 3. You can be in any amount of alliances.

I will give each player a “power”. This “power” will not be made public by me. These “powers” will not be know to the public.

Example powers: Extra life, Medic, Uncovering a players number, etc. Many of these powers will be from roles of previous games.

Game ends when:
Only one player is left standing
An alliance makes it to the end and agrees to have a joint victory

There is no elected roles. This game would start on the night cycle.

Narrative: Coming soon.

48 is XLVIII, for the record.
I might be interested in running as a GM, yet again, in the nearby future (Possibly game 50, since I ran 40). However, I'm very busy at school atm and am still unhappy with the current state of the forum.
