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 didn't realise you'd made it! There's no link in the other thread, and this thread doesn't have mafia in the name, so I bet people just haven't realised it's here.
Don't take any of the above seriously. It is in my nature to joke.

Same for me. A PQ will be appreciated.
I notice I don't check daily anymore in the forums, so a PQ would be awesome.
Love~

I'd like to put the game on ice until the forum is fixed (+the pq notifier).
 
We're never gonna get a good attendence, the way things are now, so why let someone go through the process of starting a game that no one will show up for?
Those were my two cents.
If you have any other questions, please deposit a quarter.

That is probably what is going to happen anyways.
 
I'm just saying that instead of voting on a new GM, the next one can be first come first serve whenever they are up to it. Though we strongly reccomend waiting for the PQ system to get off its lazy ass.
