I am new to the TL mafia community but I have been playing this game for many, many years. I used to play a lot over IRC, and I think we could get a pretty significant IRC community started.
So, I have created #tlmafia and I ask people join and idle it. When I ran a mafia channel on efnet back in the day we'd have 4-5 games every night. It was great and epic and I want to try to do this again. So please join and even if you see nobody there, join and idle, because I imagine we can grow it and play nice, 2-3 hour games each night.
