Welcome to the Mafia Hub! This is a forum for participating in games of Mafia.
Rules for Game Masters
- If you intend to submit your own game, you need to have participated in at least one other game in this section first. Typically we have a maximum of five or six games running at a time.
- In the Mafia Hub, day phases typically last 48 hours whilst night phases last 24 hours. GMs must follow this standard day/night cycle unless otherwise discussed with the mods.
- Game masters in the Mafia Hub are subject to a one week “cooldown” period after finishing a game. This means that for a week after your game finishes you cannot submit another one to make sure other people get a chance to start their own. Similarly, you should only be running one game at a time (excluding special event games).
- Be sure to follow the guidelines below when creating a mafia game.
- The number of people in the game must progressively decrease through the elimination of players.
- There needs to be a day/night cycle or similar. If breaking the standard formula, make sure you discuss it with a moderator.
- Work under the assumption that someone visiting from Epic Mafia (or similar) needs to be able to recognise your game as at least being related to/derived from traditional mafia.
- Game masters have the right to deny members with a recent history of vegging (becoming inactive during a game) or rule breaking entry into their games or to remove players who become inactive or break rules from their active game. Personal problems with a member do not constitute a valid reason to do either of these things.
Rules for Participants
- Whilst you are welcome to have a general discussion of an active game on our Discord server, in-depth game discussion of an active game outside of that game’s thread is prohibited - you cannot mention information that may break the game such as your role or suspicions of other players’ roles. If you do so, you may be removed from the relevant game and, if you repeatedly break this rule, banned from our Discord server. The exception to this rule is discussion in chat rooms made specifically for a game such as mafia or cultist chats.
- Frequently breaking the rules of games or overly aggressive play can get you in some trouble. Be sure to follow the rules outlined in game threads as well as the general rules of the Mafia Hub. Breaking a game’s rules can result in your removal from that game.
- Have fun killing one another! Just remember to try and keep salt levels to a minimum. Some of us might take the game more seriously than others, but ultimately nothing should be personal because when you get down to it, we all just want to enjoy the game.
