I’d like to welcome you to the A Song of Ice and Fire mafia, hosted by Aage and Commander9. Be warnst, however, as thou shall venture into the realm of unknown and scary. The original story for ASoIaF was written by George R.R. Martin, but as our series will continue, it shall be impacted by the events in the games, so we may enter the realm of fan-fiction. There will be no good guys or bad guys – only players and pawns, so this *WILL* not be a traditional mafia game. Thou must realize – if thou will decide to play the Game of Thrones, thou will win… Or die. There is no middle ground. The knowledge of the series is not necessary, but it is highly welcomed. Thus, without a further due, welcome to the world of Ice and Fire, betrayals and deaths, backstabbing and rivalries, dragons and Others, old grudges and new wars. THIS IS THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE.
And as you may now, winter is coming.

Scoring system is this: a) Once one player achieves a greater or greatest victory (assuming it's not just survival and it's not fulfilled at the start), the game ends and the victories are counted. b) Victory points are assigned according to the difficulty of achieving them (often exclusionary with one another): - Greatest victory gives 3 points - Greater victory gives 1.5 point - Lesser victory gives a point - Partial victory gives 0.75 point - Some bonus points may be given for additional conditions c) The game is over once someone reaches either a greater or the greatest victory assuming it wasn't satisfied at the beginning. d) The total tally will go on through the series with winner having most points after the series end. The table will be kept and up at all times.
Frequently asked questions:
Will this be official? Are there any prizes?
At the moment it is unknown, but it's likely that there will be announced winners and mafia prizes for the winners of the whole series. Basically, check this space.
Will all of the games in the series have the same concepts and gameplay?
No - the gameplay and functionality will vary from one game to another. There will be the regular mafia games (that have somewhat clear town and mafia), faction v faction games and various other types that you may or may not expect. The only thing you can be sure of that there will be bloodbaths, backstabs, deaths... Did I mention bloodbaths?
Are you the main mod? Is it okay if I just send the questions and actions to just you?
No, both me and aage are co-mods, so what goes to one also has to go the other. If you don't send the action to both, it may not be counted. If you have questions or concerns, PM us. If you are unhappy about something, leave it until after the game is over and then bring it up.
The claiming in this game works just like in every other one, right?
No. Well, not quite - you are allowed to claim just like you would do so in a regular game: you can paraphrase your role, abilities, alignments, etc. as long as you do not quote. However, there is one major change - you may not directly state your victory conditions. If you are not sure what you can claim, PM me (Commander9) and aage.

Used to watch the show and didn't think Joffrey could be any worse...than I read the book. Though that's not fair, there are a lot of characters who come off differently in the book. Basically any character who seems even just a little spoiled in the show is 10x more spoiled in the books. Anyone who is just a little bit sadistic is 10x more so in the books. So what you have is Joffrey who is both and...yeah...
