Hi Everyone! Sorry, work dropped a boatload of work onto me and so I'm trying to find some time to make posts. Garatron (what appears to be the "real mafia") clearly wants to identify factions so they can narrow down the list of possible humans to NK (or otherwise dispose of), especially a...

Re: Alien Warfare Mafia (Day One)

I can say, from my PM, that there are indeed 3 alien factions. I have reason to not revel which faction I belong to, as I believe there may be some major mechanics in place discouraging this type of behavior, likely in the form of player powers as opposed to mod-based mechanics.

If you ever want to make a pound cake, guess how much of each ingredient you need? If you guessed 1lb, you're correct.
