If we're going to give mafia a go here, and attempt to keep playing...we will need both hosts willing to run games, and of course players. To that end, I've decided to link some guides, useful templates, random rollers, generators and the like for modding and some things for playing.

On playing:

Proposal on a sort of Buddy System for newer players


How it would work for the game mod:

Make the new player aware that we have a buddy system feature available and ask if they want that option.

Assign the new player as scum or town at random, possibly using random.org.

Simply assign 1 as town and 2 as mafia, or alternate the numbers 1-10 as T,S,T,S,T,S,T (town, scum) until you fill all of them. Then roll. The result is what the new player will be. Then randomly assign a partner using the same method. This partner will also be sum or town. If Town, make them Town Masons with a private QT and day talk. If mafia, give day talk in the QT. In the alternative, use the Advanced Random Generator Shell linked above, but when assignimg roles, put both the new player and the buddy on one line (left side) and then go down to the next line on the left and type in null, so that you have a blank line that will work with the generator. In the field on the right, on one line put in "Scum team" and the next line, mason team. You may have to go the extra step of randomly assigning the actual player roles beyond creating the team.


As to new players, feel free to ask the game mod in signup to be assigned via the buddy system, either in post or via PM.

As to those of us "regulars" , feel free to comment here on the idea in general and to volunteer to be a mentor to new players.
