Social Thread

Mafia is a forum game of strategy, deduction, persuasion, clever traps, nerve and deception. Every game is unique and playing it with those who play diplomacy as well makes it all the more challenging and interesting. We have a unique mafia community on the site and we're always looking for fresh blood.

Some of you already heard because we chat on the Discord, but for the rest of you: I started my own company (after getting laid off as of the end January)! It has one whole employee (me)! And it has a real client starting next month!

And I still can't Mafia for a while yet. Starting a business actually means I'm more serious about focusing since it's my own job directly on the line.

But this is big and I'm excited.


Wow that is so exciting! What kind of company is it?

I can imagine that would be a lot of work and ups and downs but I think you'll do great!

I do custom development, configuration, lifecycle management, and operational support for client installations of PeopleSoft HCM ERP. It's a pretty specialized field, with a lot of potential government clients, so I live in a good place for it. Could also end up traveling on occasion for short contracts (which I'm doing some for the upcoming job).

If I was actually willing to move around a lot, or travel a LOT, I could probably be almost constantly booked. It's a narrow enough field that people like me with almost 15 years of experience can just about always find work somewhere. Hopefully though it doesn't end up with me moving places for a year at a time, cuz Zoomzip would be staying here and that would suck.

I already have a line on the next potential job after this, which would be local but won't start for 3-6 months, so right now a short contract is kinda perfect. I'd definitely like to be available for that other one.

Entirely fair. That sentence means a lot to recruiters and hiring managers and very little to anyone else.

In theory, Telleo’s game will happen at some point.

Shadow also hinted that she might put up some kinda shadowy gimmicks game.
