Mafia 83 Sign Up Thread: F-Zero Strapped for Crash! [Closed!]
« on: November 29, 2019, 01:49:31 PM »
With Thanksgiving behind us and a whole lot of cheap new devices to buy today, I'm sure everyone's got 5 seconds to sign up for the newest Forum Mafia game while they're waiting on updates for something!

This'll hopefully be a nice, easy to understand game you can just casually check into on your phone every day or two. I'm hoping that way people can still join even if their time is limited, or perhaps if they've not played Mafia before.

Rules
Forum Mafia is a social game consisting of 2 phases: first there is Daytime, when discussion is open and players can discuss strategy, theories, etc. This is followed by Nighttime, during which the Mafia tries to eliminate players from the game, and various other actions may occur in secret.
Players are randomly assigned roles, splitting them into several factions.
A small minority of players secretly constitute the Mafia: they remove 1 player from the game at a time, with the goal of being the only survivors left. Deception is their core asset. The majority of players will be so-called Townies, and it is their goal to survive this sabotage from within, by removing suspected Mafia members through a majority vote. Cooperation will aid them most. Lastly, some members of the group may have a tertiary objective that applies only to them; these are called third-party players. Staying incognito is crucial for their success.

Story
It's F-Zero baby! A fast-paced anti-gravity racing event which attracts thrill-seeking pilots. Some drivers seek the glory of lifting the coveted cup at the end, whilst others prefer to knock rivals off the track. Can the legitimate racers stave off the challenge of saboteurs and claim a podium position, or will the crash-causers end the race prematurely? Sign up to find out!

Role Playing?
Is encouraged, but not required!
Ideas: pick a vehicle from the image below (or this link), set it as your avatar, and use its name as your custom title. If you want to be a contrarian (on this forum? no way), you can also select a vehicle from WipeOut/XGR/Big Rigs, any spaceship you like, a Nimbus 2000, or heck, ride a jetski for all I care!


Players who have qualified to race
Car #1. Pokepal148, as Roger Buster in the Mighty Hurricane (sponsored by F-Zero Fedex)
Car #2. Khushrenada, as Sonic the Hedgehog (racing for Sonic Team)
Car #3. BeautifulShy, as Judy Summer in the White Cat
Car #4. Lolmonade, as the closest thing to an F-Zero experience
Car #5. MASB, as Mr. EAD, piloting the Great Star
Car #6. Nickmitch, as Mr. TBD, piloting the Future Decision
Car #7. Insanolord
Car #8. Stevey, as Black Shadow, in the Black Bull
Car #9. Stratos, as James McCloud, in the Little Wyvern
Car #10. Mr. Bungle, as Silver Neelsen, in the Night Thunder
Car #11. Shyguy, as another Black Shadow and/or Phoenix
Car #12. Mop It Up, as Princia Ramode, rules of the X Cup?
Car #13. Backwards Flying Dragons, as Baby from Super Monkey Ball
Car #14. Lucario

Nah. I'll choose an F-Zero character later.

Few things. When do signups close and how many folks are you expecting for the game?

I want to be a bit flexible here, so we can accomodate for preferences of members. But mentally I have the 5th or 6th penciled in to start the game, so about a week from now. If people want to start earlier or later, I'm open to that.

Ideally I want to wrap everything up with a comfortable distance to the holiday period, so a smaller group size wouldn't be a bad thing here. That said, I would be stoked if we could get 10 (or more?!) people to play; larger group sizes just mean we can put in a few of the more aggressive mechanics I have in mind. :)

I should be able to play then.  I have some possible holiday parties in the middle of the month but if it is simple as it can be then I should be able to go on my phone and play.

That's awesome everyone! Super happy about the turnout already.
Sign ups will remain open for a few more days, so people who haven't been online yet still have a chance to join.

I'm looking to start the game on Friday, December 6th, aiming for around morning for the Americas, afternoon in Europe/Africa, evening for Oceania/Asia.
You'll receive a reminder, plus the role you were dealt by the random number generator through PM from me. If you prefer to be notified elsewhere (Discord?), let me know and we'll make that happen.

I don't really know anything about F-Zero, how's about someone choose a character for me?

...Or maybe I could just roleplay as the X Cup, the best feature of the series.

I know Lucario said he'd play but I'm not sure if he's reached out to Steefosaurus since I don't see his name for the list of players.
