    Signups for Azurilland's Member Interviews have begun!

    What Are Member Interviews?
    Every month, we will hold an interview for a member on the forums and post an article about it on the front page. We want to give everyone an opportunity to be in the spotlight; we want to show everyone else who you are and what makes you unique. We've already been doing this a bit with the Azuricast, but each of these interviews will focus only on a single member. We want to know about all about your personal connection with Azurilland: from your passions, experiences, projects, and anything else in-between!

    These interviews will be held through Private Messaging on the forums. This is to make sure that everyone will be able to be interviewed, despite time-zone differences or Skype/Discord problems. The only requirement to sign up is that you must have 100 posts. Once you've met that criterion, all you have to do is sign up! Thank you all for being part of this community; we can't wait to get to know each and every one of you through these interviews!


    Feel free to read the official thread for more information and to sign up.  We'd love to see what makes Azurilland special to you!

    Signups for Azurilland's Smash Camp have begun and will last throughout the event until the last day, July 13th!  You may join with a buddy who is guaranteed to be in the same cabin as you, or you can choose to sign up on your own.

    What Is Smash Camp?
    Smash Camp invites many different forum communities to come together and compete against each other in various events. Though this event has run for ten years, this is the first time that it is being run on Azurilland. Everyone who joins is separated into one of four cabins, but it is not divided up by where you come from. It's an awesome way to have fun with your friends while meeting new people in the process. Participating in events earns your cabin points, and the winners of each event will win their cabins extra points. At the end of camp, the totals will be finalized, and the cabin with the most total points wins.

    The events that take place vary greatly, from flash games, to scavenger hunts, to artistic events, writing events, or even events involving popular competitive games such as Pokémon Showdown, Super Smash Bros, or League of Legends. You aren't required to participate in every event, but most events will be accessible to everyone.


    Feel free to read the official welcome thread for more information about the week ahead and sign up at the link below the header image.  Remember to have lots of fun!

    Another game of Mafia has begun taking signups.  There are only nineteen spots for players, so be swift!

    This game of Mafia has a number of updated rules and changes in mechanics compared to previous versions.  Be sure to read the first post in order to avoid confusion later on!

    So What Is Mafia?

    Mafia is a game in which two factions work to destroy the other: 'Town' and 'Mafia' (benign and evil neutrals are even thrown into the mix!). Each participating player is given a role; each of these roles is special, as they have the ability to influence how the game plays out according to the order of operations at Night.

    During the Day, everyone talks within the official thread about what happened during the Night, how to move on, and whom to lynch.
    During the Night, specific chats open up, and certain roles select a target to use their unique abilities on.


    To read more about the game and sign up, please visit the official thread here. As mentioned, this version of the game is quite different — so please read up!


    We hope you enjoy the game! Remember not to talk about Mafia outside of Mafia...
