Don't take it personally. Generally one person has to be lynched (innocent or not) to get the game rolling - and with no clues, people just pick a number out of a hat. The hope is that a mafia member gets lynched and helps give an initial advantage to the innocents. Only alternative is to not lynch and have an innocent die that night to the Mafia. That said, you WEREN'T lynched the first day, you were lynched after the first Mafia Murder. And the majority of people who voted for you were Mafia members themselves (Nioki, Kid-Wolf, and Julezia; only Lavenderdays wasn't Mafia). So they had perfectly good reason to lynch you - you were an innocent (they knew it) and you may have had a special role. Lavenderdays only joined the bandwagon.

It should also be noted that Mafia isn't generally a real role-play game. The players decided to role-play, but it isn't the norm. I even push for the fact that if a player chooses not to RP, they should be able to without complaint from the rest of the player base - and I hold to that. I'd rather not restrict the game by forcing players to RP when doing so may not be preferred; we already have enough trouble getting enough players.

The above goes along with why the game generally starts with a player lynch, and why there aren't NPCs. This said, because several players ARE roleplaying, I have already said that I would begin the next game with a story of a citizen of the town being murdered (an NPC) - giving reason to an initial lynch.

Clues about who committed crimes wont be given - it defeats the purpose of the game. The Sheriff is there to collect clues and inform the citizens of his/her findings. Otherwise, the innocent are supposed to be uninformed. That's how it was designed.


As far as room/building/town layouts, if this is something you really want I'm sure a player will be willing to do something. I can give said player some basic details about the town for them to start with and they can design it however they want. Players may also feel free to draw up their own character profile sheets if they want to for their RPing. If this happens, I'll try to throw in details about the players involved or the locations of murders/lynches too. That said, I wont give out clues using that information, and you shouldn't rely on location of a murder to have any meaning (just because I say that so-and-so was murdered while outside of Joe-Bob's house does NOT imply that Joe-Bob was involved).

If anyone would like to volunteer for the above, let me know.

Finally, in regards to a second game, I certainly would like to get one started. That said, we don't have enough people wishing to play to get a game off the ground.
Last I checked, the following members wished to play:
Nioki
Kid-Wolf
wedora
doomsayer
Cryun
Oppai-ga-suki
Monsta666


Note how you aren't on that list because you never showed interest (I even PM'd you asking for you to drop by). If you are interested, let me know, and I'll add you to the list. So long as all the above mentioned members are still willing and able, and you wish to play as well, we'd be able to start the game, though more players wouldn't hurt! So spread the word and get others to join in, and let me know if you want in.

Just heard of this over at TimCAD's (guy who does Ctrl-Alt-Del webcomics) twitter feed. It definitely looks interesting, I'll be keeping my eye out for it when it's released. Probably be a rental, but if it's really good then I might buy.

BTW, was watching that demo gameplay video. That player was annoying the hell out of me xD

So, with oppai-ga-suki, we now have 6 players. At least two more are needed to start up a game.

That brings us up to five. We need at least three more players~ If anyone else would like to join, please let us know. After I get a full list of players, I'll see about when we can start (if you can't start right away, don't worry, we can hold off a couple days or w/e) and so on.
Those of you who've already said they wish to play, feel free to invite more friends to join us!
