    I've always wanted to create a "best of" mafia game with some of the best roles I've seen. Turns out it's hard to do with all that icky balance and mechanics mess. So I'm cheating. You get to pick your role from a big list. Balance be damned.

    Yes, this is a WIFOA game similar to City Mafia and Night of the Living WIFOA. I got permission from Caluin Graye to run this. [Thanks CG! - Just remember I'm going to steal your next awesome idea too!]

    Game play and rules will be similar to the linked WIFOA games. A list of roles will be posted before the game starts. The number of roles will depend on the number of signups. At that point, everyone sends in a couple of numbers. Bah... I'll just quote CG:

    [STRIKE]Warning: Consistent day start/end times will be an issue.
    Some days of the week I just cannot transition phases at the typical times or even consistent times. I see a couple solutions.

    1. Have a designated start/end time posted. No more votes and no more posts after that point. I'll end the day/night when I can and post any results. There will probably be days when the results will be delayed for several hours. Most troublesome for delayed day starts since no one can post until the day officially starts.
    2. Not all days will last 48 hours and not all nights will last 24 hours. As my schedule changes, so will the length of day/night phases. If I know I can't end the day on time, this lets more discussion take place.
    3. No strict day end times. Not even pre-determined day end times. Think of it as island time. Day will end upon a lynch or a nolynch lynch. Night will last a while but may not be a strict 24 hours.
    4. Get a co-mod. I'm game but I don't want to take away a player because of my slackage.
    Let me know what you think.[/STRIKE]

    Thank you to ThunderCat for picking up my slack. Looks like we'll have normal start/end times!

    AS for stopping, I'd say hard stop is important and even if you don't end the day with a post, we should do that route if others agree. The changing of start and stop times could mess with the lynches pretty badly.

    I concur with BA! Also, yes I wanna play. Summer time is boring for a student who likes to stay indoors.

    Could a mod type change the thread title by adding "signup thread" at the end?

    Numbers will be submitted when the list of roles are finalized. The list of roles won't be determined until signups are closed.

    posting from me might be lighter this round. I have finals coming up in two weeks.

    I think rules are for people who can't think for themselves. Sign me up and have a tornado.

    I'm in. If you decide option 4 is the best, I will volunteer to be a co-mod as well.

    Hell yes! I love you for doing this Gory; modding a WIFOA is great fun, and I've wanted to experience it from the other side too. So count me in!

    I'm in if you go for a designated start/end time (or a co-host).

    I'll help with start / end times as I won't be playing. However, it will have to be during EU evenings due to work.
