    Default You Can't Win-Small Game [Concluded]

    _________________ _________________________________ ____________________________ _____________________

    _________________ _________________________________ ____________________________ _____________________

    ___________________________________

    A mafia set in the world of the 1926 criminal autobiography of Jack Black.
    _________________________


    The war between the states is now decades past. The inevitable end of the
    century shall soon ride upon it's mechanical stallion, bringing uponus the
    1900s. In the meantime highwaymen roam the western frontier of these United
    States and Canada. Some of them running from their past or themselves. Some
    of them run from the encroaching world. Some of them seeking fortunes they
    could never dream of obtaining on their family's barren farm.

    You are a member of the Johnsons, one of these Yeggmen. No safe is uncrack-
    able, no horse untheavable, no faro table honest. Someone amongst you is a
    Town Whittler, a Bull: a Lawman, whose goal is to bring you to justice. The
    goal of you and your fellow Johnsons is to evade their grasp, and remain free
    for another day and another scheme.



    ------$$$--$$$--$$$--$$$-------

    If you enjoy cowboys, disgruntled veterans, women of the evening, crazy drunks, and general mischief, this is a mafia for you.


    Role playing encouraged, as everyone will have a role to play. Knowing the book is both helpful and detrimental.

    Who said you can't win.




    Thank y'all for joining!

    Should be lots of fun.

    And don't forget what "Canada Bill" Jones said when a friend apporached him and remarked, "Bill, don't you know this game is crooked?" as Bill proceeded to lose his bank roll on a Faro table.

    "Yes, but it's the only game in town."
    Anyway, you'll all have specific characters with their own personalities, but if you'd care for a bit of inspiration check out this here site:

    "Something can be done, by careful analysis, to sort out truth from propaganda and legend. But this is where the real difficulties begin, since each student inevitably selects, constitutes criteria, according to his own unconscious assumptions, social, ethical or political. Moral conditioning, in the widest sense, plays a far greater part in the matter than most people- especially the historians themselves-ever realize."

    My goodness, seven already.

    There's still room for a few more, but it looks like we'll be moseying on into the sunset at around high-noon-thirtyish on either Wednesday or possibly Thursday.


    Glad to see some of you are already drunk, feeling down on your luck, and/or brought your own hat.
    Now all's you'll be needing to do is pinch yourselves some ponies, mark your cards, paint a couple of lead bars gold, and we'll be ready to ride.

    What the heck.

    This looks interesting enough. Keep in mind I am usually absent for a 2 day stretch at a time, but I sometimes adjust my routine to meet my mafia commitments. I'll vote early and change my vote later if I see fit, and send in night orders (if any) ahead of time. So consider me a regular, if not always present, player.

    If I have trouble meeting all my commitments, I recommend we still have an alternate who steps in for me, and I'll step back and be a reserve player.

    That should give you your necessary amount of players, and if someone else really really wants in I may step aside for them. Hows that sound?

    I'm very happy to have you all aboard. Lunch will be served at 12:30 sharp, and diner at 7.



    We'll be embarking on our journey Thursday, early afternoon Central Time.


    If anyone has any problems let me know, I'm pretty flexible.

    If Sigurd is going to fart, then, then, then (it is "then" and not "than", is it? Stupid language, having two words sounding exaclty the same, but written differently. *** shakes fist at the English language ***)...

    'Then' is correct.

    'Than' is used in the sense of "My fart was louder than Sigurd's" - it is a comparative.

    And they don't actually sound the same, the 'e' and 'a' have different phonetic sounds and very different semantically. Though if you think that is hard, you have only just begun, wait till you get to 'affect' and 'effect'....

    I just noticed the Dead people posting section and I can tell you from experience - if anything causes the game to die it will be not letting dead people post constructively.

    But it's only a small game, and as it has people who are up for roleplay I hope it won't die - and also:
