*Although the signups are opening now, this game will not be the next one played. If you read through the OP, you'll see why.*

The floorboards creaked as the evil witch, Morina, crept inside the deserted cabin. As she walked towards the middle of the room, her sidekick, Mr. Broomy, the talking broom, scuttled out of a corner to join her.

“Well well well. It looks like nobody else is here. Time to begin our... gathering,” said Morina.

The two had been planning on having a party with other nefarious beings. But, as the clock ticked closer and closer to midnight (the appointed time of the party), nobody had arrived. Probably because everybody thought Morina and Mr. Broomy were too weird and not evil enough.

Heyyy. We are very normal. Very very normal
Well the evil part is fine. But I’m not weird... right?

Whatever the reason, Morina and Mr. Broomy were determined that the party should go on, despite the lack of guests.

“Who needs friends anyways?” Mr. Broomy mumbled as he swept across the floor to turn on some party music.

“We don’t have friends. We have... minions! Hahahahaha!” cackled Morina. “And I think I know just how to get some!”

Mr. Broomy decided to ignore the (in his opinion) insane witch, and he continued sweeping.

I am NOT insane. I'm just brilliant. And misunderstood. Because no one is brilliant enough to comprehend my brilliance. Including you, apparently. So there.
Um...Narrator said you were insane! That was totally not me! Totally!
Hmph. Well you had better hope it wasn't you...

“Seriously though! I know how to get some minions who will be way more fun than any of our so-called ‘friends’ would have been!”

“And how exactly do you plan to do that?”

“Just watch..."

Mr. Broomy watched as Morina pulled out a bottle that said “MAGICAL MAGIC POTION. VERY MAGICAL. DO NOT EAT.”

“Here. This will solve all of our problems,” Morina said as she poured the potion into a glass and handed it to Mr. Broomy.

“What does it do?” Mr. Broomy was mildly worried for two reasons: first, it was a potion Morina brewed (they tended not to work very well), and second, he had suddenly sprouted a hand to hold the glass in.

Oh come on....my potions are always fantabulous. I don't know what you're talking about. Hmph. No one likes you anyway, Narrator. You don't even have a real name. So ha.

“You'll find out soon enough.”

"Eh. Why not." He sighed as he lifted the glass up to his mouth.

Ugh. Why do people in stories never read the warnings on bottles? Except Alice.

Alice was an idiot. I know what I am doing! Would you rather it say “Drink me”?

Anyways, he suddenly spat out a ton of weird little tadpole things that started growing and growing and growing.

“Oh look! It's our new minions!!”

But they seemed not to be all that miniony. Once they were human sized, they immediately turned towards Morina and Mr. Broomy and killed them. Violently and with a lot of gore.

NO I DON’T WANT TO DIE SAVE ME SAVE ME SAVE ME.
NO I CAN’T DIE YOU ARE AN IDIOT NARRATOR. Bring us back to life OR ELSE.

You kinda can’t follow through on those threats. Sorry.

Uh...I’m nice so don’t kill me? Please? Pretty please?
I will never let you have this post back! So I can threaten you! Mwhaha.

Okay fine. Morina and Mr. Broomy magically survived. Uh... the eagles did it! But all the creatures are alive. And that is where YOU come in. See... you’re the creatures. Surprise, surprise. And you get to kill each other! Fun. Here's the deal:

You currently are just random arbitrary creatures. But YOU get to decide what that means! Basically, sign up if you want to play and PM either mod 3 potential role names. They can be whatever you want (be reasonable). Then go play a couple other mafia games and we’ll work on which names will be in the game and the roles that fit the names. There is no guarantee that all the roles in the game will be roles submitted.

Basic rules:

1. The results of each day phase will be decided on the majority of players who vote. So be active.
2. Please use the normal voting colors (red to vote for somebody, blue to unvote, yellow to be killed by the mods)
3. You may change your vote.
4. You can vote to kill nobody, and that acts as a regular vote would.
5. Send your night actions to the mod you received your role PM from.
6. No after death posts. Unless you ask us nicely...then we will consider it. We are also open to bribes.
7. No screenshots. Cuz borrrring.
8. We may or may not award extra powers or effects throughout the course of the game if we deem it necessary. Or if we like you.
9. These rules are subject to change depending on what the roles end up being.
10. If you sign up here, you are committing to playing the game in a few weeks. Because we need time to make this thing epic. We are not gods. So yup.

Player List:
1. JustM.e
2. Little Miss Jazzy
3. Evan
4. jnshelton
5. CalebAshley
6. Effervescent
7. The Pumaman

Also, Cashley died in a hole. I don't know why you keep trusting him. I mean sure he's super good at mafia and knows exactly what he's doing, but I feel like maybe some game you would just not trust him. :P Props to you Cashley, always making my games exciting.

I want this game to have enough players, and I also want this game to be active, so I'll play.

I'm quite hopeless, aren't I? I said I'd stop, but I'm back.

Please PM me when the game is about to start, b/c I won't be checking daily for updates.

Hey guys. So fun fact--the reason we opened signups early was so that y'all could send in your roles, and we could get this game going. Contrary to popular belief, this means that you actually need to send in your role suggestions after you sign up. ;) If everyone who has not done so yet could submit their suggestions to me and/or Brett (johnnyw256), that would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully we can get this game going before too terribly long.

We are still waiting for PMs from several people. If you don't turn in a role suggestion in the next week, your role will not be one of the submitted roles. Instead, we will personally create a "special" role just for you. And trust me...you do not want that to happen. Mwhaha. ;P

Life happened and we got busy haha. It's still half planned, so we're hoping to run it this summer. Though we may have to get roles from some people again, due to poor organization. :?

I suppose I'd better get in on one of these things eventually. I have no idea how these things work. In.

We still have a Google doc with a bunch of rolenames. But I think we'll end up just giving people crazy roles and such. Like including submissions but there weren't exactly a lot of those so. People signing up now can still submit rolenames but not for long.

I'm still in for this! Since a lot of the signups currently on the list seem to be inactive/are not playing mafia anymore, you should probably wipe the old list clean and start with a new one from the first newest signup here.
