I'm doing well. This subforum is flatlining, sadly.

Just looking at how many threads came to an end each year:

2014: 38
2015: 35
2016: 25
2017: 17
2018: 7
2019: 9

It's been pretty dead.

Needs a new leader to bring in the fresh blood.

I just donít have the time anymore. University is very demanding and mafia is a big commitment. Normally this would be balanced out by new younger players joining, but bay12ís growth in general is kind of slow.

Yeah, Mafia is both a large time commitment and has a high burn-out rate. It's rough without a constant stream of new people. Would definitely benefit from some active out-reach, I'm sure.

We did have someone running a game in the main FGaR. How did that go?

It's got nothing to do with mafia, especially b12 house mafia.
Bay 12 forums have been dead or dying for a long time and never really found a purpose.
Now, DF has finally started to die under the weight of all of toady one's recent dev hubris, so there's no chance of a revival.
Y'all are just in a bad place. There's not many people here and of those that are very few are going to want to play mafia.
Also have the veteran players are just hanging out, infesting the woodwork.

Hey meph, did you delete my post where I was asking you to ban the old account, or what? I'm 90% sure I made that post and webadict replied and it wasn't just a hallucination.

I don't recall deleting one. Though if I did it was a while ago.

What do you mean by recent dev hubris? I have problems with how Toady One has been updating the game as well, but Iíd like to hear what bothers you in particular.

I haven't played DF in a few years. I remember being excited about the idea of NPC adventurers visiting player forts but I haven't seen it in the flesh yet. I enjoy the game, but the FPS problem did always seem to kill my forts before goblins or madness.

This place is oddly fascinating. Pity it's dying.

All the same, I'd like to try this while it lives. Do you folk still run those beginner's games?

Not sure there's much push for beginners games at the moment.

I'm considering running a Choose Your Own Mafia, or a Proc Gen Mafia game again in May if there's some interest among players.
