• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

Guess what!

I'm running a mafia game!

Guess what else!

Writing flavor is the part that's hardest for me! So I'm not gonna do that!

Introducing Minimal Flavor Mafia, the game where I don't write much flavor, and you all play as a bunch of things that don't have much flavor! Roles may or may not include such things as water, uncooked rice, and the inside of your own mouth!

I plan to use the NewD3 MafiaScum setup for this game, simply because I think it'd be fun to have a more relaxed, less role-madness-y game for once since we don't do that here often. The linked page provides all details on how NewD3 works, but in short, it requires exactly nine players, most of whom will be vanilla roles. Two mafia, seven townies. Dead players will flip with their faction and flavor publicly visible, but not their mechanical role.

Rules will be the same as when I ran Cats (2019) Mafia many moons ago:
  • The usual mafia rules: You may only post in the game thread during the day phase, dead players are not allowed to continue posting/private communications, etc.
  • No out-of-game-thread communication is permitted except for the mafia. I'll set up a group PM here on the forums for the mafia.
  • Please do not screencap your role PM. (The rule against directly quoting from it is not necessary in this game since I'll be using the NewD3 role PMs, so you'll all know the exact text of all the role PMs except for each other's minimal-flavor flavor.)
  • In-thread votes will be accepted only when formatted in bold. You can also unvote, vote to abstain from yeeting anyone, or vote to extend the day phase by 24 hours (maximum one extension per day phase). At the day's deadline, votes will be tallied and the plurality/majority of votes will be enacted. Ties will be broken by random number generator.
  • Please do not abuse the react feature. That includes living or dead players using reacts on old or recent posts for the purpose of surreptitiously conveying hints.
Barring consensus otherwise, I'd like to run with 48-hour day phases and 24-hour night phases. Barring IRL disruptions, I'd like to set phase changes at 2pm in my time zone, Central US time (aka 3pm Eastern US, or 7pm UTC for now/8pm UTC after the US ends daylight saving in early November if the game lasts that long).

Providing we get the nine players we need, the game will start Tuesday, Oct. 18. Please reply if you'd like to join the game or spectate in graveyard chat!

Signups so far:

1. @Zero Moment
2. @Butterfree
3. @qenya
4. @mewtini
possible interest: @Zori , @Happy

Still seeking to fill the remaining slots! Now that I'm back in town, I can start the game immediately whenever we get all nine slots filled. If we can get closer to nine but can't quite reach nine, I'll find a smaller agreed-to-be-fair public setup to use instead of NewD3.

Well, I'm sorry to say with this little interest, I don't think this game will be possible. Let's put it on hold until/unless activity picks back up and more people are playing mafia again.
