Sign-ups and Pre-game:
1. This game wants 16+ players. As soon as 16 players have signed up, there will be a 24-hour window for others to join. Anyone who signs up after this 24-hour window will be put in the replacement queue.
2. Once the sign-up window has closed, I'll send Role PMs. You should confirm receiving your PM in the game thread.
3. The game will officially start when all but three players have confirmed.

Setup Info

So here's how this works. This is a Semi-Open setup.

I've divided my Tarot deck into two piles, the Major and Minor Arcana. As seen below, I've assigned specific, fairly traditional Mafia roles to the Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana, however, have been assigned secret abilities that range from "Oh, that's new and interesting" to "What on Earth was that?" in power and strangeness. Some Major Arcana are town-aligned, some are Mafia, some are Werewolf, and some are other.

In order to keep the Major Arcana roles feeling appropriately special, I've separated them from the rest of the deck. For every seven players that join the game, one Major Arcana role is added to the setup. After that is done, I deal enough Tarot cards to give everyone a role.

Minor tweaking is done afterward to ensure some semblance of balance. It usually comes out pretty balanced, but sometimes there's six werewolves out of 16 players and that's just no good.

I need to join a new Mafia game, methinks. Warning: V/LA from 15th-25th August, Cayvie, your choice whether to include me or not.

I'll include you for now. Depending on how long this game takes to fill, we'll see. Will you be able to post at all during that time period?

I should have internet access, but it'll be very limited. Probably none at all until ~18th, and then I'll be able to get on for about 30 minutes, if I really want (and I probably would rather not, but would be happy to check every other day to resolve e.g. night actions).
