Re: Sign-ups (for PLAYERS)

Meta Mafia II XKCDians have once again been sampling the ju-ju-juice, and have forgotten who they are! I know, I know, we could just check our pockets, but where is the fun in that? Instead, as is tradition, we will lynch until everyone's true identity is known! Let the lynching begin! Meta-mafia: ...

Re: Alien Warfare Mafia (Day Three)

I genuinely don't know how I can prove it, because my ability still doesn't make a huge amount of sense even to me. I'd prefer to not be shot over it, since I know I'm Human.
