    Default Playing with the TWC

    I'm not sure how this will work, but I was thinking of organizing a get together game for both Org and TWC mafia players.

    If I can work out the system, we can make this a competition for which site has better players, but its more of friendly game, learning each others tactics and making new friends.

    What do you guys think?

    A splendid idea!

    This will make the two forums come closer together! A new future, in which TotalWar players can unite! One forum, one goal, one Maffia!

    Well I could recommend a system for the game to work there was a game on twc a while ago called the tale of two cities where you could banish someone to the other city and that was how the town had to win by making sure that it had no mafia there.

    Sounds intresting!

    But where would it be hosted ?

    It seems like the competition already started...

    As long as the "fun" > "competition", I'm fine with the idea. TWC doesn't have such a large base of dedicated mafia players nor the tradition we do though. But they do have a bunch of excellent patrons and it would be nice to have them visiting the Org more often.

    Why don't we just convert them to Orgahism?

    After all, we have cookies:

    Well you would have one thread here and one on twc everyone would sign up to both sites when you played you have two choices you could either deport someone or lynch them so you have two goals firstly you have to get rid of your mafia but you want to make sure that the other city has less people then you by the end.

    Firstly, Thanks heaps for the feedback

    @ Captain Blackadder

    Could you give me the link to this game? I would like to read it through.

    @ Everyone

    Its likely to end up as a competition but I'm working on the system to make it fun> competition and I need some help doing it.

    I have came up with a setting which could work but its only a rough plan. We might use what Captain Blackadder suggested.

    TWC can be the first host to get everything started.

    The model is Sparta. We have two kings, one each from TWC and Org. Three body guards each who knows their king but not allowed to contact him.

    Two mafia from each forum, representing Athenian assassins and Thebeans during the Peloponnesian war.

    The victory will be decided with points awarded to the following actions.

    +1 points for each votes on the assassins.
    +4 if mafia successfully takes out the king.
    +6 for a mafia victory and +2 extra if both mafia players are alive.
    +3 for MVP chosen by host and two judges from TWC and Org
    +1 for Funniest comment of the game (why not)
    +1 for best write up (lynching write ups is to be done by kings)
    +2 for who ever started the bandwaggon on traitors.
    +1 for the best analysys in the match

    -2 for insults (to be warned and penalized by the judges)
    -2 per WoG (unless there is a credible reason)

    In case players with roles were WoGged, that players role will be passed to random player chosen from the respectable Forum.

    To make it something special, lets make this only once per 6 month or per year.

    I believe this kind of game between the two forum, will fire up the love for our forum, grasping the interest from none mafia players, making our mafia games more popular. Our huge game for example has difficulty gathering above 30 players except the special case of Capo. Not only we can encourage none mafia players to join, but also by knowing other forums players, we can join their game or they can join ours when more players are needed.

    Of cause, this may create more rivalry like the example of State of Origin matches in Australia or Soccer match between England and France. But as long as we respect our posting rules, we can keep it civil and possibly succeed in creating friendship.

    For the record, while I was the one who suggested this project, I am not that comfortable to host the game. So if anyone has opinions, ideas or volunteering to host, those will all be appreciated

    Cheers

    There are the two games I wasn't in them so you should ask Jubal about how they worked.

    I don't have the brightest of views of some parts of TWC's membership. However, fortunately, the participants of TWC's Coliseum would fit in well with the spammier, but still charming, parts of the Org, such as the Frontroom and Gameroom. It might create competition, but if I know the current Coliseumers well enough, they won't troll nor flame. Besides, the current holder of the Capo crown is a TWC moderator, so perhaps the onus is on the Org to regain its honour.

    Winner can have their title as the "better mafia players of 200X" and the right to host the next game on their website

    Or is that bit too much?

    @Captain Blackadder

    Thank you for the links. Ill read it through

    Yes please Caius

    EDIT:

    I had a read at the game that Captain Blackadder suggested. The concept of the game was that players will be divided in 2 cities. Then the city who got rid of the mafia first was the winner. They had the option of either lynching or exiling the player from their city.

    This game will be good if we are going for friendly game, but would be hard to make it for competition

    There is however some peep on the TWC with my user name. I thought I had an account, but obviously not.

    But if we can play the game on our respective boards it wouldn't be a problem.
    I think however that there should be a common host for both games and that the phases is synchronized with absolute deadlines for voting and night orders.

    I've contacted Don Jubal_Barca of TWC about the ideas so far and I'm awaiting response.

    If I get a go sign from him as well, we can start organizing it.

    Thanks for the suggestion Sigurd

    You could create a username, named something like "Uber-Sigurd", to show who is the superior Sigurd of all. :P Talking about account, I also have no account there.

    ...

    Yeah something like that.
    I won't use the German word for superior though. I am open for other suggestions.
    Maybe Mafia-Sigurd?

    Nonono, he could as well make his username I'm not creative then.

    It has to be something catchy but still with Sigurd in it.

    The Real Sigurd
    Sigurd Réal


    or maybe add a French flavour, like Sigurd Le Vrai or Le Grand Sigurd.

    Or some Italian flavour, like Sigurd Bolognaise Il Sigurd.

    Yes, that should be it, Il Sigurd.

    Sadly, no. I always use absurd names like those in any RPG I play. My current character in Fallout 3 is Arvin von Luffa. If I ever get a dog, it will be named something like Duchess Mitsy Fluffington, Devourer of Souls.

    That's decent. You could also go for a more subtle change, like Andres!, in the style of the Pathé logo.
