Yo, you should all sign up for Caesar Mafia at SG, right here.

Sorry for the shameless plug, been the slowest sign ups I've ever seen.




Now how are you all doing? Are the Shadow still ruling supreme around here?

Sorry, can´t play big games anymore.

 

Of course the Shadow is ruling!

The Light is ruling supreme. Panchi is the SG leader and Talmanes and me, both Light, are probably the two most active members around.

 

Also, the mafia game around here is filling up just as slowly.

Go Light!

 

You just gotta advertise! I got my game filled pretty quickly, I was quite surprised.

I'm bad at that lol.

 

I'm pretty sure I advertised in GD.

Two games at a time has been the norm for a while here. We had four sign-ups pop up at once and all of a sudden we could only fill one game, because everyone was too spread out. /shrug I think both SG games will fill pretty quickly now though.

It was not a mafia game. Some people are more willing to sign up for non mafia games

To be fair, the difference is that Brownie Quest can be done with some 20 minutes per day, while mafia can't.

Well I did advertise it as less of a time commitment. I was hoping for a little more posting but there's been a fair amount. I purposely opened Round 5 early to let everyone post a bit before needing a decision.

People who enjoy mafia but can't keep up with the usual volume could always play a lower content game together.

 

I'd be more than willing to mod it.

 

I mean we've knocked around a lot of ideas about how to make games more accessible to people with time restraints, but at the end of the day it's all just a matter of who signs up.

I am willing to sign up for games which don't require the effort of mafia games. Hunger games are fun. You don't have to do anything much and it all proceeds fast.

I've had the idea for a while now to run low key mafia games that don't impose the sort of effort expectation of what we're used to here.  I played in one off-site a month ago where the entire game was only about 300 posts, and I had a lot of fun being able to just pop in for 15 minutes a day without getting too invested in it.  It's sort of like a turbo (a game that's run start to finish in about an hour) in slow motion.  Find enough interested parties and I'll make it happen--I'd probably start with something fairly role-less, but if people want a bunch of wacky power roles that are impossible to balance but give everyone a fun and unpredictable night ability, that can certainly be done too.

To be fair, I dont think it can happen at Dragonmount, because everyone's so used to making long cases and having an opinion (and giving it) about everything, that it'll become like that anyways, except if you add a post restriction for everyone, which I don't think will work either (because then you'll get people who can't give their full thoughts).

I doubt there would be any issue. We all know who the players are who'll post 500+ times in a game. (I'm one of them.) For these particular games, they either can't sign up or will face a very heavy post restriction. Problem solved, and the dozen or so people who constantly talk about how they wish they could play but they can't keep up with the volume levels these days, well, they can play now!

    • In what sense are we giving our country away?
    • Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use.  If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling.  After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth.  The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel.  Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing.  A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad.     In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care.  He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth.  So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth.  They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface.   It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why.  But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.
