Since I just feel like having a fun, obnoxious game right now, I'll be doing TFM | GIM2
No set role list. All roles in the GIM thread are fair game.
Will likely be completely unbalanced, but, we will have fun.
9-12 players.

Will open signs ups for that tomorrow around 9am-Noon Mountain time (9AM is roughly 14 hours from this post rounding up to the hour)
Hope to see you guys there.

Manifisto Declaration No. 1:

Disgaea FM promises to provide mega damage and ultra high stats. No one will be a Citizen, Goon or Scumbag! Role-madness baby.


Manifisto Declaration No. 2:

Disgaea FM promises to provide outragous gameplay. This game is not for the faint of heart, nor is it for those looking for a vanilla experience. Oh no, leave all concepts of vanilla out by the door. That's Disgaea FM.


Manifisto Declaration No. 3:

Disgaea FM promises to make your manliest fantasy come true! Monsters can transform into weapons, and two monsters can unite to become one gigantic monster! And then the giant monster transforms into a weapon; the completion of an ultra super transforming unification!

YES THIS IS A REAL MECHANIC.


Manifisto Declaration No. 4:

Disgaea FM promises to show you the insides of a clean and prosperous nation and how the netherworld empire is managed. With the Dark Assembly mechanic government has never been so much fun! Each night two possibilities are voted on by the Senators, each can affect the entire course of the game; Texas Justice? Reverse Lynch? Hot Potato? Where the neighbourhood at? Who knows what could happen...


Manifisto Declaration No. 5:

Disgaea FM promises to provide you with the most cost efficient performance*. Limitless interactions between roles, players and mechanics. 

*considering the game is free to join


Manifisto Declaration No. 6:

Disgaea FM promises to provide a worry-free startup plan. 

Metrion But With A Higher Pitched Voice wrote:Closed theme game of forum mafia, sounds complicated. Reading the wiki and scum reading, that sounds like too much work.


Don't worry my scared, little sheep, all facets of Disgaea FM is comprehensable by even those who have never touched a strategy rpg before.

(However you should reconsider if you do not want to put any effort in such as scum reading or gleaming the wikia)


Manifisto Declaration No. 7:

Disgaea FM promises to provide boundless possibilities! This is a game meant for fun please join with that mindset.

To clear up some possible confusion: Some users/players will sometimes be given responsibility over votecounts while a moderator is busy/away. We'll usually ask those certain players on occasion when we believe they'll be capable, so don't message us if you desire to be a vote leprechaun.

Dark world Mafia 2 sign ups will be opening sometime tomorrow afternoon/evening (Likely around 4-5 my time). This is a 9 player TFM, and is essentially 2 games in one. It is not for the faint of heart. Only sign up if you know you can take the time for this game, please.

Hope to see ya there

I want some filler between my current game and my next, so I'll be doing TFM | GIM3
No set role list. All roles in the GIM thread are fair game.
More than likely will be unbalanced. 99% sure it will be after test rolls.
10 players. Have fun and don't be upset if/when shenanigans happen; that's the purpose of this game.

Signups open tomorrow around 3pm CST.

Game Moderator Message: I'm back, again. With another announcement.

The recent events have shown me that this community needs to come together with the FM Mods more often with their problems.
And the FM Mods need to look a their games more closely as well.
It is a two way street.
The FM Mods need to pay close attention to their games, to figure out who is rule breaking, and who is not.
The community needs to come to the FM Mods more often with their issues instead of letting them sit, and fester ... only to then have them explode.
We don't see everything, and we aren't mind-readers either. If you feel someone is breaking a rule, report it to us. If you have an issue with someone, tell us.
We are here to help you anyway we can. Some of you may not think of us that way, but that is part of our job here as well.

We also all need to be accepting of others, no matter where they come from. Do not automatically assume someone cannot play the game just because they cannot speak English as well as you or I.
As long as they are playing the game, and not breaking the rules, that is all that matters.

We also need to not assume everyone new is an alternate account of someone else, nor pester someone to find out if they are. That's not playing the game.
New players are starting to join us, and they come from all over the place.
Yes, we do have players who like to use alternate accounts, and that is within their right to do so as long as they inform the FM Mods about it. Some players want to start over, or change their meta. I don't see a problem with this as long as they are abiding by the rules. You aren't going to like everyone you play with, but you need to be respectful to everyone. Do not harass a player about being an alternate account.
Play the game, be respectful, and have fun.

On a separate note
About once a month we are now going to set up a discussion, possibly followed by a poll, and ask you guys what you want us to run that month. Alzar pointed out that players do not get a lot of input in what gets run, so I think it's time we got together and discussed a bit more. I will set up that thread at the beginning of June sometime.

Thank you for reading this announcement.
You may now go back to your daily/nightly shenanigans.
This was not the scumslip you were looking for.

Game Moderator Message: The verdict on the Last Wills/Death Notes debacle is that we will be keeping them out of SP games, but they will remain in CL. Other games are moderators choice.
A lot of the community agreed upon this, and we feel this is also a happy medium.

Carry on with your daily shenanigans.

DFM will be launching on Sunday May 29th 6:00 pm [UTC -3].

The first 25 slots will be counting as being in a game. The 40 after will not be counting as being in a game. The 10 afterwards is more like a special backup list and may not be playing at all, unlike the other two.

You do not have to be strictly active outside of the first 25, however the 40-50 players must expect a much different experience than the standard FM experience.

That is all.

Sorry for upping the due date, but we want to get CFM's rolling quicker.

The next CFM game will be *drum roll*

Spoiler: Blacklist FM!

This will either come after 10B fills, or after 9G ends. Stay tuned for an exact time for sign ups.

You have until Blacklist FM ends to submit your CFM pitches to us for next round.
We feel this is a more efficient way than what we were doing before.
After the CFM ends, we will immediately begin review/voting.

I will be cohosting a game with Animate sometime this month. Next weekend at the earliest, and a few days after 9G ends at the latest. It will be a matrix, just like 7H, but with new updates, and it will have 16 players. Exact date will be given at a later time.

Postby iggyvolz » Mon Jun 13, 2016 3:12 pm

Iggyvolz was killed by a member of the Mafia last night! His role was Moderator! The following last will was found:

I've been trying to figure out how to say this for the past two weeks. I haven't figured out a good way to do this so I'll just say it - FM 9G will be my final game moderating, at least in the foreseeable future. The past six months have been very busy for me, and with college in the near future I won't be able to guarantee that I can pay enough attention to my games to justify moderating them. There have already been several instances where I have gone days or even weeks without reading the games, oftentimes I was too embarrassed to come onto the mod forums and see the other moderators asking what is happening in my games and me having no idea.

This was a joint decision between ObiWan and I - I will still remain on the team to work on FMBot, which will hopefully be ready to deploy for other games later this week with some minor bugfixes (namely the unlock bug and reading multiple messages per page). The full 1.0 release will be done later this summer which will allow the other moderators to run their games with no need for manual interaction for me, which would free me up if I was ever caught up and couldn't be online for a few days.

It was 2 years ago this past Saturday that I was officially invited into the moderators' team, and these two years have been the best ones of my life, both within FM and without. Even though I'm not a super huge fan of Mafia, the community is what really kept me coming back. As much as we've got a few troublemakers, the majority of the community is so nice and friendly.

As I graduate high school in the coming weeks and look towards college, there are some things I'm leaving behind and other things I'm starting anew. In essence, I feel as if I'm starting a new life with the dreams of a past one. While moderating is something I'll leave in my high school years, I won't be leaving entirely.

Thank you for these past two years, and have a wonderful day.

Spoiler: Had to do it, one last time! :P

10C signups will go up at 11 am EDT, this saturday (18th). Rolelist below.

Spoiler: Image

Features:
  • Column AND row is picked, instead of column OR row. Base is confirmed to be in the game.
  • Protectives are non-consecutive, and do not give the protected (or themselves) feedback.
  • Strongman is a role whose kill bypasses protection, but not (neutral) immunity.
  • Tracker would know the difference between being jailkept and someone not visiting.
  • No wills.
  • Vigilante is 2shot no guilt.
  • BP's immunity is passive, they're told of being attacked much like BG is.

This is open to feedback, and could be changed if enough people had reservations against it.
