    “Well shit,” I muttered to myself. I glanced at the man who had thrown the manilla folder at me. He smirked, and I just wanted to punch him, in the face, as hard as I could. I've been taking kung fu classes, I bet I could break his nose if I tried.

    I glanced down at the folder and shuddered, what lay within would undoubtedly be both profoundly enlightening and utterly damning to my case. The battle for Chicago had been over for weeks but even now the mystery that surrounds exactly what happens is unknown. Something had happened though, that's for sure, and it was up to me to follow the trail left behind by the conflict participants. I had no choice but to slog through the paperwork to reach the paycheck.

    I opened the manilla folder and saw on the first page a list. It had 28 names on it, in neat order of who had been witnessed at the scene of the crime that began on that cold December 18th. They were well known in these parts for being to some of the seediest and most untrusted, lecherous and all around scummy beings in the area. I hope this will be a fairly easy knot to untangle, but with these people I feel it's going to be anything but.

    There's a note at the bottom of the paper, after everyone's listed. It is only three words, scrawled in dark black ink and almost tearing through the paper at parts; but I'll be damned if they aren't some of the most chilling I've ever read in a while.

    “DON'T TRUST ANYONE.”

    (Here endeth the Flavor for now.)

    When will the limit be reached on the rules having too many conditions?

    I keep watching these new Mafias being made and they are so damn confusing.

    Sweet shit! This is going to be one long, complicated game.

    Sign me up, but... wow. I've seen the rate these things go at, so what happens if a user misses a vote or something?

    Sign me up for this, but the rules are a bit ambiguous.

    Do the scum factions (except the denarians) + Knights each have a QT?

    Town win conditions: Kill the Scum. So how can there be a Denarian left alive (Knights win conditions) after the Town has won?

    I'd like Obs at least.

    I'm tempted to try and play but I'm still a bit new to this Mafia stuff so I should finish up the game I'm in before jumping off the deep end methinks.

    Just make new QT's, duh. Don't make it too easy for players to cheat, even if you believe in their integrity.

    edit: And for the avoidance of doubt, this is more a warning against accidental cheating than on purpose cheatign anyway. Mistakes can happen and if there's a way to avoid them you should do so.

    Do you accept noobs? If yes, then I'd like to play. My only experience with mafia games is reading a couple of threads on this very forum and they were hilarious. I wanna see if playing is more fun (other than more time consuming and... probably stressing?).

    Another novice question but, uh, what does QT even mean?

    edit: Ah, thanks.

    I do accept noobs, just try to post somewhat if you can.

    Zenzao: QT means QuickTopic and it is a little mini forum type page that allows me to interact with you and only you.

    Lungs: Kai makes a good point, and at this point I don't really feel like re-making every QT so sorry, you're kind of out.
