Granted: thanks to your new life-crippling eating addiction, you are never hungry again. You can't resist the urge to eat even when you aren't hungry.

I wish for a long and healthy life.

Granted. You lived up in the mountains, but it was a long time ago and now you long to regain that aspect of your life.

Your wish is granted by a barber who shaves only the heads of everyone who doesn't shave their own head.

Re: Sign-ups (for PLAYERS)

Mafia noob here. I have never played before. I want to play. But if I'm reading this sign-up thread correctly, there are no currently open registrations, right? Or are registrations for newbie games somewhere else?
