    Mafia XXIX: Mafia League Baseball

    That's right, an MLB themed Mafia game.

    Come one, come all. Signup goes until next weekend. We will start on Monday, April 20th.

    Rules (Still Work in Process)

    1. Day/Night - There will be two Day/Night periods per 24 hours.
    - Day Period 1 runs from 7 AM to Noon.
    - Night Period 1 from Noon to 4 PM.
    - Day Period 2 runs from 4 PM to 9 PM.
    - Night Period 2 runs from 9 PM to 7 AM.

    The first Night period is shorter than the Day periods to ensure reasonable time to play during the day. Because of a night period happening in the middle of the afternoon Specials may PM me their requests at any time during the day so long as they preface it with "Night XX Kill/Investigation/Protection". If you PM me your request during the Night period itself no prefacing is needed.

    Example: Mafia members will not be around from Noon to 4 PM, so they PM me during the 1st Day Period and say "Night 1 Kill xxx".

    2. Weekend Day/Night period has not been set as I hope this finished before the weekend.
    3. NO editing of posts.
    3. Votes must be in bold or they do not count. If you switch a vote, the earlier vote must also be rescinded to count.
    4. Voting must be done before 9:01 PM. Anything at 9:01 or after will not be counted.
    5. Only Mafia may PM amongst themselves.
    6. Minimum of three posts per calendar day. If you miss voting two times in a row you get the Clap.

    Roles

    Mafia

    George Steinbrenner (Yankees) - The closest thing to a real-life Emperor, you possess most of the powers that previous Emperors did. If investigated you will turn up Innocent. However, an investigation two times in a row will reveal someone in the Mafia. You will have one kill to use at anytime.

    Marge Schott (Reds) - Old, bitter, angry and hate paying your players. You will have one kill to use at anytime.

    Jerry Reinsdorf (White Sox) - You would rather lie, cheat and steal your way to the top then spend money on things. You have the power to interfere with the Pitching Coach, 3rd Base Coach or Umpire and render them useless for the Night. You may not pick the same person two nights in a row.

    Ted Lerner (Nationals) - You were put in a bad situation and everyone of your decisions seem to go the wrong way. You are trying to turn the corner now and benefit your fellow owners. As long as you are alive, you have a 15% chance of saving a fellow Mafia member from any elimination. However, once save a member of your Mafia you will not have the chance to save that person again.

    Fred Wilpon (Mets) - Just like your cross town rivals you love to spend, spend, spend and have nothing to show for it come playoff time. Each night you may PM the Commish with a request to "buy" another player. You will have a 20% chance to sign him on to the Mafia. You may not try and recruit the same player two nights in a row. You are limited to signing only one player during the game.

    Vigilante

    Lovable Loser (Cubs)
    - You haven't won anything in 100 years. What makes you think you can now? As the Vigilante you can strike anytime during each Day/Night cycle. (Ex: One kill in the Day/Night 1 cycle, One kill in the Day/Night 2 cycle, etc).

    Innocents

    Pitching Coach (Doctor)
    - You have the power to protect your valuable assets from breakdown and certain death. Each Night PM the Commish with the person you choose to protect. You may self-protect. You may not self-protect or protect the same person two nights in a row.

    3rd Base Coach (Detective) - You excel at strategy and sending signals. This means you are also well versed in stealing them. Each Night PM the Commish with a name of a person you would like to investigate.

    Umpire - You call em like you see em. Each Night you will get a hint about an evil player. It is up to you to decide what to do with it.

    Prize

    1,000,000 Credits split amongst the winners.

    Put me in Coach...I'm ready to play



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Re: Mafia XXIX: Mafia League Baseball

    Would Steinbrenner be the equivalent of the Emperor then?

    Steinbrenner and the Yankees may, or may not, have something to with the Evil Empire.

    Re: Mafia XXIX: Mafia League Baseball

    I'm Obviously in.

    Why are we waiting until the 20th to start?


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    I'm curious as well. We can have a whole other game play out next week.

    I'm in. I actually have free time again.

    Easter weekend may or may not interfere with the ability to sign up. As I would like to get as close to 30 people as possible so I can assign a team to everyone I would like to grant people more time.

    Also, logistically I would rather make this a Monday to Friday game that doesn't have to go in to the weekend and get the natural dropoff.

    Can someone say two day/night periods every 24 hours.
