The Cylons Were Created By Man
They Rebelled
They Evolved
There Are Many Copies
And They Have A Plan



Hello and welcome once again to another Mafia Sign-up thread! I'm your host, Formalhaut, and this game's theme is rather different from previous games. No more anime, we're venturing into the world of gritty live-action Science Fiction!

Yup, this game's theme is the remake of Battlestar Galactica from 2004-2009, starring Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell. The series centres around humanity's fight for survival after their creations, the cylons, rebelled against them, launching a sudden surprise attack against their colonies, devasting almost all of the human population. With the only surviving military capital ship being the Battlestar Galactica, it's up to the crew to lead the survivors onto a fabled golden world somewhere in the depths of space, forever being pursued by the cylons who have evolved to look just like them.

If you haven't heard of or watched Battlestar Galactica, don't worry! Literally no prior knowledge is required to take part. I like to make my Mafia games accessible, so together with the brief summary of the series in the preceding paragraph, I'll also be putting together character sheets in my Role PMs to aid in roleplaying and immersion.

Compared to the excellent games hosted by Pumpkin, Fynn, Karifean etc., my game will be more 'back-to-basics'. I won't be introducing new game mechanics like skits or daily rules, but if you thought this game would be boring, well I always have a surprise or two up my sleeves.

As usual, please carefully read over the rules!


~~ Standard Rules ~~


http://home.eyesonff.com/images/eoff_smilies//icon2.gif This game will be using Mafia accounts. When the game begins, you will recieve a Mafia identity in the form of a username and password. Please only use those accounts when posting in the game thread.

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/eoff_smilies//icon2.gif Please do not share your identity with anyone and where possible do not share other people's identities if you figure out who is playing as who.

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/eoff_smilies//icon2.gif Only Mafia can communicate outside of the game thread.

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/eoff_smilies//icon2.gif Do not delete, edit or moogle hug posts within the game thread. Multiple posts however are permissible and in fact encouraged, especially if you have a lot to say!

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/eoff_smilies//icon2.gif If you aren't going to be active because something comes up, please let me know ahead of time. Try not to just leave everyone hanging. Try to be active at least once during the day.

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/eoff_smilies//icon2.gifDo not share official Mognets or the like from me. Use in-thread evidence to make your claims, not outside evidence.

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/eoff_smilies//icon2.gif If you are killed either through lynching or night-kill, please do not post in the game thread, as you are dead.

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/eoff_smilies//icon2.gif Keep all your accounts set to invisible.

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/eoff_smilies//icon2.gif Like always, there will be a discussion thread to discuss the game outside of the official game thread. Please keep the gaming to the game thread. Use your normal accounts for the discussion thread.

http://home.eyesonff.com/images/eoff_smilies//icon2.gif If you have any questions about the game, do not hesitate to ask me at anytime. I try to answer all questions as soon as I can.

In regards to game set-up, I'm trying something different by going with a Closed game. What this means is no roles will be revealed beforehand. Neither an exact role list, or a list of possible roles, will be included.


~~~


I am looking for a minimum of 12 people for this game. I can potentially run it with 10 or 11, but for balance purposes 12 is my ideal minimum. I would obviously love more of course!

Players

1) Karifean
2) Slothy
3) Freya
4) WarZidane
5) FFNut
6) Pumpkin
7) Mr. Carnelian
8) Sharkythesharkdogg
9) KleinerKiller
10) Fox
11) Laddy
12) Sarisa
13) Scruffington
14)
15)

Sign-ups will be open for a full two weeks! This'll give everyone a chance to cool down from Pumpkin's amazing Tales game and also allow me a chance to fill up my sign-ups list.

Thank you everyone for reading! Here's hoping we have another successful game!



All Of This Has Happened Before,

Can I join?


I actually donít remember mafia being played here last I visited, I only found out through mafia universe. Our championís game concluded, and we all got in a discussion about how playing with other communities is a good way to grow as a player because it breaks you out of your siteís meta and exposes you to new tactics and strategies you may not have seen before. Many of them joined other popular mafia sites after that, but I didnít want to go to the same ones everyone else was using as then Iím more likely to run into the same people again, defeating the purpose. I browsed the list of registered communities participating to see if there was one that wasnít focused primarily on mafia, but still had a focus I could be interested in. And then I saw this place and remembered I had an account here. Seemed like fate.


I mostly have experience with vanilla games or games with pre-defined setups like matrix 6 and witch hunt, but Iím happy to try something new. I look forward to playing with you all. :)

It'd be fantastic to have you! Don't worry, my game will be on the simpler end of the EoFF Spectrum, so if you're used to Vanilla-only games or Open-setup games, then this will be a pretty good step up without overwhelming you.

I'll sign you up right now. Thank you again! :D

EDIT: Oh, and I saw you mention meta. You'll find EoFF's meta is quite unique. Hope you enjoy the game!

And we have twelve players! I'm so happy, thank you all so much for signing up! :bounce:

Sign-ups will remain open until the 31st May, and the available positions have been extended to 15 for anyone else who wants to join. Don't forget to tell your friends! The more people playing the better and the only thing better than meeting expectations is exceeding them!

This should be starting today or tomorrow right? I'm not exactly sure which because of timezones.

Formalhaut

Hey Sarisa!

So this would be starting on tomorrow, but I was informed that one person would be away this coming weekend and so obviously wouldn't be able to participate fully those days, so I'm delaying the start until the 5th June.

FFNut
06-05-2017, 01:02 PM
I am excited to start this today!

Formalhaut
06-05-2017, 01:22 PM
Psy is just creating the Mafia accounts now. We'll be starting either today or tomorrow!

Formalhaut
06-06-2017, 01:23 AM
And I've got them! This Mafia will be starting at 21:00 GMT tomorrow (today?) so get excited! I'll be sending your Role PMs a little before then, so you can introduce yourself in the Game Thread.
