Now that i have you attention, i would like to all invite you to sign up for the upcoming mafia game with Iron Edge, themed Lord of the Rings. The game promises trickery, drama and emotional outburst. It requires you to be active on the forum as much as atleast post once a day.

Me and Graxlos are hosting the game.

TL;DR = It's awesome and sneaky.

What is Mafia?
To put very simply, Mafia is a game of lying. There is a group of people, some of them are lying and some are telling the truth. Your job is to figure out who is lying, or if you are lying to convince the rest of the group that you are telling the truth.

To elaborate, the game is divided into two teams: the town and mafia. Mafia know who each other are and can coordinate their actions privately. Townies on the other hand don't know anything other than their own role. To compensate, there are many more townies than mafia; usually the ratio is 1 mafia for every 4 townies. In other words, Mafia is a game of an informed minority against an uninformed majority. Can the mafia use its superior organization and knowledge to lead the town astray? Or can the town figure out the mafia and kill them before their numbers advantage runs out?

At the beginning of the game you are PM'ed your role. The game is divided into two repeating phases: day and night. Days last 48 hours and revolve around deciding a lynch target by means of voting. Every player in the game gets one vote, and each player must argue and convince the others to lynch their target. At the end of the day the person with the most votes is lynched; their alignment and role are revealed and they are removed from the game. The majority of the action in the game takes place during the day phase.

Night is 24 hours long and is reserved for private actions. Any player in the game that has an ability (such as mafia kills, detective checks, medic protections, etc.) can use their power in this phase. Usually during the night everyone discusses the results of the lynch and makes plans for the next day. It serves as downtime from the emotionally charged days. After the night ends, a day post comes up with the results of who dies. After the day post, the discussion for lynch begins anew.

Once there is a winner, everyone will typically weigh in on the game with their thought process and advice. Many times the hosts or observers will contribute their thoughts as well.


Why play Mafia? What is required to play?

Mafia is a game of logic, intuition, persuasiveness, reading ability, emotion, and will. In short, its a thinking man's game. There are many different ways to approach the game and every game is a very different experience. Whether you are looking to test and improve your intelligence or have a unique, fun experience, Mafia is the right game for you.

Be warned: Mafia requires a time commitment. This generally depends on the player, but at minimum 1 to 2 hours a day of solid effort is required. Some players spend as much as 8 or 10 hours a day playing Mafia. More time spent gives you a better chance at making the right decisions, but you can do a very acceptable job with just 1 to 2 hours a day. Mafia games typically last between 1 and 2 weeks, but usually you will die at some point before it ends.

As part of the time commitment, mafia requires a great deal of reading. Most people actually are very poor at reading comprehension and playing Mafia is a great way at improving your reading ability. As you also must be posting each cycle, Mafia is a good way to improve your writing and ability to think and argue logically.

In addition, mafia is not for the faint-hearted or overly emotional. While not occurring every game, sometimes people can get into very heated arguments with one another. People can get very emotional playing Mafia, as it is a high-intensity endeavour. That being said, playing Mafia is an excellent way for developing thick skin, improving your patience, and making yourself a stronger person mentally. In addition, there's an unspoken rule that arguments are kept in the game. After the game is over and everyone cools down, there is rarely any bad blood. Some people may be harsher than others, but almost everyone is here to help each other learn and improve.

07 Nov 2011 - Ragnaros HC slain



The band of grunting, drooling Serbian raiders led by Hid -- otherwise known as the H-Raid -- has slain Ragnaros on heroic mode! Apparently we are now the 175th-ranked English-speaking EU guild.

All of our raid groups are currently recruiting. The H-Raid is especially interested in a DPS DK, or an outstanding protection warrior. You must be able to speak English, but Serbian is a bonus.

Loots:
[item]i/69167[/item] for Zenath
[item]i/71797[/item] for Jola
[item]i/69224[/item] for Figl


Iron Edge is recruiting for Patch 4.3, Dragon Soul, and the inevitable fall of Deathwing.

We now have three hardcore 10-man raids in total: Two on Dunemaul (one mainly Serbian, one mainly Turkish), and one group on Ravencrest (International). We also have a 25-man raid group on Dunemaul (International).

All four raids would always welcome exceptional raiders, though you are encouraged to join IRC (or whisper someone in-game on Dunemaul or Ravencrest) and ask about specific class requirements.

Head on over to our application form when you're ready to apply.

Got the Barrel Roll achievement this weekend, but couldn't do the Majordomo achievement without killing Baleroc!  So, we cheated a bit with out alts' normal Firelands save and went in to get it (without getting saved!)

Just a reminder that we're still recruiting for Firelands!

We're currently looking for a lot.  We will consider any decent application!



We repeated our 25m hc kills in 10m hc on Beth'tilac and Shannox.  The former taking 3 pulls and the latter just 1.  We went on to a completely new boss for us, Majordomo Heroic, and got him to 20% on the first pull.  Then wiped to random stuff for a few more pulls, finally killing him on the 4th.  He is rediculously easy on heroic in 10m.

The raid lost focus after wiping a few times on Ragnaros Heroic with Admiral Ackbar, so we didn't make much progress there.  Maybe sometime over the weekend! :D

Just a reminder that we're still recruiting for Firelands!

We're currently looking for Retadins, a Disc Priest, a Rogue, a Resto Druid,a Mage, Resto Shaman, possibly a Hunter and maybe a Warlock.  We will consider any decent application!








With several of our guys on holiday this week we decided to take a shot at 10m heroics.  In about an hour, we downed Alysrazor (after some 50% wipes in 25 last reset.)  Then we moved on to Baleroc.  He took a little while longer, but we got a kill after our kitty learned not to Torment the raid.  Then we 1-shot Rhyolith for kicks.... lol he's easy on 10m.

Good job everybody!

Didn't take too long to get this spider down.  Seemed a fairly easy fight once we got the spiderling aoe sorted, to be honest!

We're currently looking for Retadins, a Disc Priest, a Rogue, Boomkin/Resto Druids, possibly a Hunter, a Mage, Resto Shaman and maybe a Warlock.  We will consider any decent application!




After a few gruelling weeks of wiping on Lord Rhyolith, he finally died tonight!  Congratulations to everyone <o/

Our 25m hardcore raid (4 days/week) is still recruiting for Firelands.

We're currently looking for resto shaman,  resto/boomkin druids, retadins, mages, warlocks and, possibly, rogues and hunters.  We'll consider any exceptional application!

14 Jul 2011 - Shannox Heroic Down!


After just 2.5 hours of 50 dkp minus, we managed to kill Shannox Heroic in 25m!  Good job everybody.  Lets see if we can get another kill tommorow! :D


With Ragnaros slain on the first pull Tuesday evening, we can move on to heroics this week!

Our 25m hardcore raid (4 days/week) is still recruiting for Firelands.
