Edit: Having read the Google doc, seems like every single player has a special role, including werewolves on top of their normal wolf role. So you could have a wolf-doctor that could heal itself. :dread:


It's only 17 players in each game.

The games are indeed quite active though. In the early stages of the game, you should expect around 500 posts per 24 hours. Not all can do it, but it's definitely doable, unless you can only rarely be at your computer or on your phone, of course :)

OK. Roughly speaking, how long does a normal game tend to last?


Depends on which phase lengths you sign up for. You can pick between 12/12, 36/12, 48/24 and 72/24. So a 12/12 game could be over in a little over a week. 36 and 48 would likely last a couple of weeks. A 72/24 could last 3 weeks or more.

Hmm... I'll have to read up on this. Sounds like it could be a fun time. I think my one and only mafia entry went well last time.

Just so I know - who else is considering as a definite?

I've picked up the general flow of how things would play out, so I'm good in terms of the rules. There might be one or two mafia-specific things I'd need help with once the games start, but those can easily be answered during them.

Is there a possibility we could have a SONM slot and a GRcade slot, given the two sites had/have such vibrant histories of Mafia and Werewolf respectively?

It's a good idea.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I think we're supposed to have a representative and a backup confirmed to begin with, to offset any risk from the rep dropping out. At the moment DarkRula is interested, and possibly Drumstick? Or no?

I take it SONM is another forum/site? In that case, they are very welcome to join the Championship. Would one of you be willing to share the invitation with them?

As a note, next week I'm gonna be on vacation, so it will be difficult for me to check in on all the sites, so if you end up deciding a rep in that time and want them to start getting prepared, they can register on Mafia Universe or contact me via Discord: Thingyman#6075. I will then send them all the information they need.

There's a bit of history to it. They were at http://sonm.uk/ (which has an archive) but we recently merged. OrangeRakoon was the admin of that community (now part of our staff; Green Gecko is our admin).

Thanks for all the hard work you're doing organising this, it looks like it'll be great fun. I'm sure we'll be able to find a rep (and hopefully one each from both of our communities if you think that's permissible!).

For now I've noted down GRCade as definitely participating, and I have SONM as a maybe, since it seems that's not 100% sure yet?

As a reminder, deadline is April 26, but the sooner, the better for me, since it allows me more time with your representatives to get them prepared :)

Were either of you interested in taking part then?

Anyone else is welcome to put themselves forward too of course!

Well, I was waiting to see if anyone else was a lock for it before agreeing, but I don't think anyone else is, so I'm game.

I just don't have the time, unfortunately.

Yeah that's cool, I think most of us are the same.

Looks like you might be the man, Rula!

@OrangeRKN: Could you make a global announcement to advertise this thread? I really hope we can get two people together to send!

Hi guys! :)

Just popping in to give you the 10-day warning and a reminder that the final deadline is April 26.

The very first qualifier starts April 29. And the last one starts June 17.

I'm very excited about this season! When your representative gets slotted into a game, I'll return with more information on when they're playing and how you can spectate them along with a thousand other people from all the other sites.

Ah, it seems DarkRula is the man for GRCade, at least? I'll send him the info then :D

And I'll check in to see if a rep for SONM is decided.
