    Default Council Of The Magi - Small Mafia - ON HOLD



    The COUNCIL OF THE MAGI is at hand.

    Held only once every ten years the Council convenes to decide which of their number should be elevated to the status of Magus Supremo - Master of all Magic for the decade to come.

    Only the first thirteen Magi to solve the riddles and enter the fabled Tower of Sorcery are able to form the Council; and with representatives present from the most powerful and ancient orders of Magic, the Council is always politically charged, very competitive and – according to legend – has even proved to be fatal for some of it’s less successful participants. At that time however, the Dark Sorcerors known as Magi Mafiosi still stalked the land ~ and magic was in constant use as a tool of war.

    Thankfully those wild old days are long since passed : Over the last hundred years or so, the incidents closest to actual conflict have been marked by the occasional singed beard, or sleet-filled robe, as the perpetual squabble between the Order of The Unbridled Flame and the Order of The Icy Tempest continues with its own - barely sufferable - predictability…

    …until now.

    Despite the belief of the Council; that The Magi Mafiosi had been banished unto the eternal void for an infinity of harmlessness and boredom:- One of their infernal number escaped before the mass exile and; remaining in hiding for more than a century and slowly gaining in power, now seeks to return the shadowy order to its former malificent potency.

    The Magus Mafioso has chosen the imminent COUNCIL OF THE MAGI to exact terrible revenge and seize the power required to release their evil brethren.



    RULES:

    COUNCIL OF THE MAGI is a mafia game for 13 players: Split into Day and Night phases as usual. Each day phase should last at least 24 hours - potentially more at weekends, but certainly no more than 48 hours. Each night phase shall last between 12 and 24 hours, or until I have all Night orders in and processed. Timings are sure to change and I shall state the deadline for posting votes and orders more specifically in the thread as we proceed.

    Except for screen grabs, Players may post anything they like in the thread EXCEPT THE EXPLICIT IDENTITY OF YOUR ORDER OF MAGIC! For reasons that shall become clear in the thread; ANY MAGE WHO PUBLICLY REVEALS THEIR ORDER OF MAGIC MAY BE DISMISSED FROM THE COUNCIL WITHOUT WARNING!

    During each Day phase the Council must vote for whichever Mage they wish to send into the void until the Magus Mafioso is correctly exiled. You may vote: Abstain, or vote: 'No Lynch', but one way or another, one of the Mages present will be exiled even in the event of a tie.

    All the usual voting protocols apply: ie. Votes must be formatted in bold like so:

    vote: boudica

    If you wish to change your vote, you must
    unvote: boudica, vote:Askthepizzaguy

    Official votes and vote changes should not appear in posts which have been edited - although the last judgement on whether a vote is counted or not is mine. Don't mess with the tally etc.

    Players who have been sent UNTO THE VOID! (lynched) or night-killed MAY NOT play any further part in the game without contacting me first. That means: NO posting in the thread and NO discussing the game privately with active/exiled/dead players unless you use me as a go-between.

    Players may be kicked from the game at the hosts discretion. but if this happens it will probably mean they have blatantly ignored some of the rules.

    This may sound hypocritical due to my variable online time - especially at weekends, but... PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP IF YOU CANNOT COMMIT AT LEAST A DAILY CHECK OF THE THREAD.

    ADDITIONAL RULES will be revealed in due course. Any further questions - please PM me, or ask below. Game will commence once we have 13 confirmed starters.

    One last thing - Players wishing to sign up who have been sporting those fancy Signature banners for the last week or two shall be given first refusal on a place, whether they sign up after 13 others or not. Those players are: 777Ares777, Reenk Roink, Sigurd, The Flax

    It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then, the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

    Thanks for the interest. If Sigurd wants in then he's in, otherwise the place is Yoyoma's.

    Default Re: Council Of The Magi - Small Mafia - IN PLAY

    After extensive traveling through the lands of Gaymeruhm and triumphantly passing the tests at the tower gates; thirteen chosen Magi wait expectantly in the Great Hall, for the current MAGUS SUPREMO; Boudica The n00bZoR!, to arrive and bring the Council into session.

    From beneath the cowls of identical robes the Magi cast each other furtive glances. It is a given that all who have passed into the Tower of Sorcery are gifted Wizards and so; whimsical precedent dictates that the new Magus Supremo should be elected only by demonstration of their arts of persuasion, and that all Magi should remain anonymous throughout the Council, to prevent any one particular Order from gaining an advantage over the others: Breaking of this rule is grounds for dismissal from the Council!

    To facilitate communication while the Council is in session, a minion of The Magus Supremo scuttles down the line of 13 Magi - from one shrouded figure to the next - tapping each on the chest with a small glowing wand. As the twinkling lights settle above each Mages' heart, they first assume the shape of letters, and then spectrally shuffle to form the code names by which each Mage shall be known for the duration of the Council, and hence transcribed unto legend. The code names are as follows:

    Shinseikhaan
    Greyblades
    ReenkRoink
    Captain Blackadder
    pevergreen
    Psychonaut
    Quintus JC
    A Very Super Market
    The Flax
    Yoyoma1910
    777Ares777
    Lord Winter
    Sigurd


    Once all 13 Magi have been so adorned, the chief administrator of the Tower of Sorcery coughs nervously, and speaks thusly:

    "Great and powerful Magi - We, your humble servants, welcome you to the Tower of Sorcery and bid you a pleasant stay. While the Magus Supremo commits the rituals which purge her of any further responsibility for the sorcerous welfare of the Lands of Gaymeruhm, we should be pleased to bid you pass through the double doors to your left where you will find our comfortable and spacious Conference Centre Cocktail Lounge. A complimentary glass of Bucks Fizz and voucher for a 10-inch plate for the Eat-As-Much-As-You-Like Cold Buffet await each of you!

    Now if I might beg your attention for a further moment or two, in order to highlight some of the safety procedures that should be adhered to at all times duri.... oh!...

    ....they've gone."

    The double doors to the Tower of Sorcery Conference Centre Cocktail Lounge swing back and forth as the last flapping robe signals the end of the stampede of the Magi.

    The chief administrator shrugs and claps for a minion,
    "Well - I guess they'll all get to know each other while they wait, now go and put a copy of the fire drill procedure in each of the rooms... on the pillows with the mints."

    You may begin posting in the thread, but there is no reason to vote, as the act of unspeakable and violent evil which will be done in order to make voting necessary has actually not happened... yet.
