    Sure. I guess if we can put together a single game, the growth is permanent enough.

    *Comes bursting through the door, looking worn and quite frazzled.* I'D LIKE TO JOIN!!!


    Is there room for another player? I've got the basics and understand how Mafia works (so this ought to be easy enough to glide into), and I assume I'll be fine without reading every last one of the myriad job descriptions. Unless I won't, in which case I'll get reading.

    There's plenty of room man!
    And you only need to read up on the roles that will be given when the games begin, only a certain number of roles will be in the game and even then, you only need to read if you wanna know what to expect...

    Hey, there! I was invited here by Alkane to help fill out the game, and since they're a pretty awesome player, I couldn't resist saying Yes. Plus, I always like helping mafia games get started.

    Still catching up on the rules and set-up to make sure I don't make any mistakes.

    EDIT: I also promise I'll have an avatar by the time we start.

    I mean, like, of course! Welcome in! I'll end up making a definite list from which all the roles I'm using in this game are listed, so you don't have to read all of them, just the ones in the list.

    Welcome, welcome! Thanks for coming!

    Here's the list
    Player list:
    • HunterC1998
    • Alkanthe
    • 611
    • Cebu
    • Jimlad 42
    • Vurrunna
    • PsychoSoldier
    • CjBeats
    • Jake9039 (?)
    • WANNA
    • PLAY
    • A GAME?

    I'm making the game thread tomorrow.
    Feels like we won't get that many more players. I'm waiting Cj and Jake to show up to confirm they're still up to this, and for you guys to invite more players. I'll be asking around too. Hopefully we can finally get this party started.

    Right on, can't wait to get my lynch-mob game on (everyone can be a penguin to kill if you just spread the love around...)

    Oh, er, um, I mean, I'll certainly be shooting for a proper resolution and not a bloodbath, yes, no, that would be absurd.

    On another note, what's the style of gameplay? Is it casual "We're playing Starbound-Mafia and are here to fig're it out" or is it more "We're people in Starbound trying to figure out who the dirty penguins are?" As in do we just chat like forum users or in some semblance of character? I'm fine either way, just curious.

    Too late to come back in? Sorry I was on vacation, but I'm back now and ready to play.

    You're just in time, I believe.
    Forum users, though it is possible to get in character some, I don't think TPS provides much to jump off of that won't give away your role. Then again, that has been a fun thing to do for me in the past...

    This is the perfect time!

    Mostly just as forum users, but it's possible to get into a role. And like Alkanthe said, if the character is based on your role, it gives away your role. Then again, some people have went in-character just to hint what their role might be.

    From the horizon it came. The speeder was just a blur on the horizon, a flash of scarlet. It was pumped up, and made out like an old hot rod, of the long gone see a figure jump out of it, and roll on the ground, before getting up, and dusting a jumpsuit off...and removing it to reveal a finely tailored suit...beneath a helmet, a pair of shades. And then they're gone. Ducking away into the shadows...

    A pamphlet hovers in the air where they had been, before slowly falling towards the ground...snatched out of the air by your rapid flippers, you turn it over to see the front...

    There's simply a name, or an acronym on the front...and some numbers.


    You're puzzled...and you return to your beer in silence, watching your fellow penguins in the rest of the bar, wondering...
