Thingyman from Mafia Universe contacted me, they'll be having the next Mafia Championships soon. If any xkcd-er wants to participate let me know. Deadline for registration is April 26.
Some important stuff:
Your representative should be prepared for having to read upwards of 600 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game. Additionally, there’s a requirement that each player must make at least 10 posts per Game Day. Only active players should apply/participate.
- 17 players, 4 Mafia, no indies, everybody is a PR
- However abilities are distributed randomly across alignments (so you can have scum with Vig, Cop or anything else)
- there are 1-shot, even/odd and normal PR-s, no exotic roles
- ability won't be revealed in the flip, just the alignment
- hammer doesn't cause day to end, only deadline (so basically there is no hammer)

Thank you for sharing the invitation, Sabrar.
I'll be here to answer any questions that you guys have.
I THINK someone asked about no lynch, or maybe that was directed at a game here? In any case, no lynch is allowed in these games. If a majority votes no lynch, then at the end of the day, no one is lynched. I don't think that has ever happened though. If there is a tie in votes, then one of the tied players will be randomly chosen as the lynch.
With regards to the high activity requirements, it's definitely a lot. But if you have a 2-3 week stretch sometime during April, May or June where you have more availability, then I'll make sure you're scheduled into a game starting at a good time for you. Also, this year will feature less MU regulars and many new communities, so while I still expect a lot of activity, I think it might decrease a bit. We've also implemented a post restriction of 200 posts per game day per player, so that if you get a couple of spammy players, they can't completely take over the thread.
I very much hope to see xkcd represented. I think you guys have only missed one season
