Welcome to MafiaManiac, a site is dedicated to the growth and expansion of the online forum game of Mafia.
Mafia is that party game you may have played, where there is a mafia (informed minority) trying to overtake an entire village and the villagers (uninformed Majority) are trying to stop them. We play these mafia games over several days in our forum and we have people from all over the world playing them. These mafia games can be themed from movies, real life situations and almost anything you can think of! Mafia involves a lot of creative strategy, making you think on your toes. You'll be forced trust your gut, check your logic, and deceive or be deceived. If you think you can handle playing, here are a few links you should definitely check out.
An actual writer is coming to my university. He is holding a workshop where he and some students as well are going to critique and discuss short stories written by students. Many people submitted their works but only five stories were selected. Mine was one of them.
I'm normally not given to sharing personal information on the 'Net but this is pretty exciting. I won't mention who the writer is because that'll give away the university I'm at but his books are critically acclaimed, and if my story was selected he must have liked it!
Be happy and excited for me, citizens of MafiaManiac!
Give me a shot to remember And you can take all the pain away from me A kiss and I will surrender The sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead
A light to burn all the empires So bright, the sun is ashamed to rise and be In love with all of these vampires So you can leave like the sane abandoned me
... A red bird of my desire came and sat upon my shoulder, and I wrote a note and tied it to its leg and sent it off into the west. It said, "I'll be back," and it was signed by me. ... I saw my earlier selves as different people, acquaintances I had outgrown. I wondered how I could ever have been some of them. ... *shrug* Good-bye and hello, as always.
Spoiler for The three laws of the ol' faithful goodie killer
First Law: A goodie killer may not injure a goodie or, by being redirected, allow a goodie to come to harm. Second Law: A goodie killer must act to protect his team's chances to win except where such actions would conflict with the First Law. Third Law: A goodie killer must protect his/her own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
I'm an educated man, I read various remarkable books, but I cannot understand the direction I myself want to go, whether to live or to shoot myself, as it were. So, in case, I always carry a revolver about with me. - Epikhodov - And perhaps we are funny. But you must never imagine, that just because something is funny, Monsieur le Marquis, it is not dangerous. - Mr. Croup - I have always felt that violence was the last refuge of the incompetent, and empty threats the last sanctuary of the terminally inept. - Monsieur le Marquis - There is nothing so dangerous for anyone who has something to hide as conversation!... A human being cannot resist the opportunity to reveal himself and express his personality which conversation gives him. Every time he will give himself away. - Agatha Christie
