Getting Started on Exmafia – Mafia RPG on Myspace and Facebook

Some advice from a player Seeker {1702} – Many players on these games will tell you leveling is important. Crimes are important. Get as much cash and the highest level you possibly can as early as possible. This, my friends is only half true.

Let’s say you follow this advice. You never train for your first few days playing. You crime and crime until you have enough cash to make millions off interest alone. However, there’s one thing you forget while building these levels. Your stats. You don’t train. You don’t take time to put in a single attack. What happens? You’re the highest level in the game with the worst stats possible. The next thing you know, you’re being hit hundreds of times a day. Everyone else gains stats off of you. They gain experience. They catch your level. Now, you spend the next month or so attempting to train while new player after new player finds out how easy it is to take you out.

ExMafia MySpace Application

An RPG application on MySpace in the criminal underworld. You must be your own boss and fight to survive the streets.

Here’s the solution. Don’t do any criming at all your first week or two. Find people with the same level, or even a few higher. Attack, attack, attack. Your level will shoot up just as fast, and you have the benefit of minor to moderate stat gains. Chances are, someone has made the same mistake you just avoided.

Look for the people in the top three or four levels who are not in the hall of fame. These are the ones you go after. You find your target, and you hit them over and over until you’ve matched their level or even passed it.

Four thousand attacks at your same level will gain you 280,000 in both strength and guard as well as 800,000 total experience, minimum, if you’re not a donator. Enough to keep up with people in your same range. While this sounds extreme, sometime extreme playing is necessary.

ExMafia on Facebook

A RPG application game on Facebook of the criminal underworld – create your own mafia and be your own boss as you rule the streets.

Attack, attack, attack. I cannot stress this enough. If you start losing, mug some people. Buy a house. Train your agility a bit. But don’t touch your strength and guard at first. Your biggest ally in easy stat gains is attacking.

___________________________________________________________________

Let’s start with the basics…

Name: – this is your mobster name. The number after it is your payer ID. You’ll use this is several different places in the game, so it’s good to know.

Money: – this is the cash you have on hand.

Level: – this is the level your mobster is on. Levels are important because as your level increases, more cities and items become available. Your brave limit also increases with your level.

Points: – these are the points you have earned. Points are used to train in the gym, and for several other uses that will be covered later.

Attacks Remaining: – these are the number of attacks you have and number you started with.

[emergency logout] – if you need to log off in a hurry (like if the boss or teacher is headed your way..lol) click here and you will be logged off.

Energy: – Energy is used for several things – attacking other mobsters, training in the gym, and walking the streets to see what you can find.

Will: – The amount of Will you have will affect the stats you receive at the gym when you train. The higher the Will, the more stats you get.

Brave: – Brave is used to commit crimes.

EXP: – This will show you how close you are to your next level.

Health: – Your health will go down as you attack or as you get attacked.
Now, let’s talk about stats….

Stats are what you look at to determine if you can defeat another player or not. There are 5 types of stats –

Strength – how hard you will hit your opponent.

Agility – determines how easy it is for an opponent to hit you.

Guard – how much damage an opponent will do to you if they hit you.

Labor – enables you to get a better job.

IQ – determines how successful you are at crimes, and also help you bust people out of jail easier.

How do you raise your stats? There are a couple of different ways…

Attacking – When you successfully attack another player, and you hospitalize them rather than mug them, your Strength and Guard will increase.

Training in the Gym – You can choose which stat you want to increase by using either your energy in the regular gym, or your points in the point gym.

Classes – There are several classes available at the school. Each class is specific to a particular stat. The more expensive the class, the longer the class, and the more stats you receive when the class is over.

Money makes the world goes go ‘round…and the same is true for the Mafia world. There are a few ways to make money in the game –

Every mobster’s favorite way to make a quick buck is of course…crime!!! These are examples of a few of the crimes that are available…

Each successful crime will give you money and an increase in experience that will help your level raise.

Each unsuccessful crime will earn you time in Jail. Jail time is in real time, and the amount of time depends on how risky the crime was you attempted.

Another way to make money is at the truck stop where you steal goods to sell at the downtown fence. The more experience you get here, the more expensive items you can steal and fence.

There are numerous other ways to make money. Visit the city to gamble at the casino, play the lottery, and even try your hand at the stock market.

Or you could always just mug someone…

____________________________________________________________________

So you’ve got money…now you need points. Luckily, there are a couple of ways to get some.

One way is by voting. Click the link that says “Vote for ExMafia on game sites and get rewarded!” and it will bring up a list of links to click to vote. Each vote will give you from 5 to 10 points.

Another way to gain points is to buy then off the point market in the city. Prices are set by players who post the points. It is strongly advised to buy points from other players through the market and not from the individual. If you find yourself scammed…ExMafia staff will not intervene. This is a Mafia game after all.

Have a friend you think would like ExMafia? Refer them using you referral link and when they reach lvl 4, you’ll get 300 points. Your code can be found by clicking on the city you are in.

It is also possible to buy points through Pay Pal. Click the “Looking for addition game benefits?!?” link for more information.

Now that you have points…what do you do with them?

Points can be used for just about anything. Use the “Trade Point” menu to trade points for refills of your Energy, Brave, and Will, buy more attacks, gain IQ, or more.
_____________________________________________________________________

Now that you have money and points, you need equipment.

Each city has different ways of getting what you need.

Shops – the simplest way to pick up weapons and armor is at the shop. Different cities offer different stores. (hint – once you buy an item, make sure you go to your inventory to equip it)

Item Market – The item market is where player put extra items from their inventory up for sale. This is a good way to buy items that are beyond your ability to get on your own. Be advised – all sales are final.

Auction – The auction is a good way to get a deal on items you might need. Items are sold for either money or points. Keep an eye on the time remaining, and snatch a great bargain.

If you have items in you want to sell, you can either put them on the market or the auction by going to your inventory.

**Another great way to buy or sell items is through the classifieds in the Newspaper**
_________________________________________________________________________
A few more things to know….

Houses – houses are an important part of the game. The bigger the house you have, the more Will you have, and the better stats you get when you train at the gym. Be sure, when you upgrade your house, to sell your old one first.

Jobs – Even though a good Mobster lives a life of crime, it’s important to have a somewhat respectable job as well. Your stats will determine if you qualify for the job you want. The better your stats, the better your job, the more money you make when you get paid!

Bodyguards – A bodyguard can be hired with points and will be in effect for 2 hours. While you are under the protection of a bodyguard, no one can attack you, however you may not attack anyone either. Bodyguards are handy if you are needing to train without being attacked, or need to have a large amount of cash on hand and don’t want to get mugged. **Please note that if you are on the attack ladder, or if you are the Godfather, A bodyguard WILL NOT block any attacks till you are off the ladder.**

Going for a Walk – Another thing you can use your energy for is walking around, looking at things. Both good and bad things can happen to you while you do this. You may find a new gun….or a dead body. You may find more attacks….or get hit by a car. You may find points…or loose them. Anything can happen on the streets of ExMafia.

“Okay, get this,” he boasted. “The boss gave me an important new job, and he’s paying me FIFTY GRAND! I start tomorrow.”
“That’s fantastic, honey! Did you tell your best friend, Vinnie, yet?” She excitedly gushed.

“I said there was bad news, too, baby,” he frowned. “Vinnie’s dead.”
“Oh my God, no! Vinnie was the best!” She cried. “He gave the kids a nice present every Christmas! When did he pass away?”

The Mafioso looked down and shook his head. “Tomorrow.”

~5 questions with ~
Bella Nevermore
It’s a hot, humid June afternoon as I find myself sitting on the tailgate of my truck. I’m waiting on….someone. I’m not sure who. Through a friend…of a friend….of a friend….who knows someone…I was able to arrange an interview with Bella Nevermore, the don of the infamous BloodHound family. I start to get a little nervous as a black car pulls up. A flashlight is all I can see once the car stops and a male voice asks – “Are you from the newspaper?” The last thing I remember is saying yes….

I wake up in a small room…it appears to be the cabin of a yacht. An armed guard escorts me to the deck, where I sit at a table under the shade of an umbrella. Looking out over the sparkling blue water of wherever I am, I almost don’t hear Bella approaching. Despite the heat, she looks cool and calm in a white sundress and flip flops. She hands me a glass and apologizes for the means by which I was brought to the yacht. She has a breeziness about her and I find myself relaxing, surprisingly at ease. If it wasn’t for the men on deck with Uzis, it’s almost as if two old friends have met for lunch and drinks…

ExMafiaNews: Thank you for making time to talk to me.

Bella Nevermore: No problem…

EMN: So how long have you been involved in the….in organized crime?

BN: Almost 10 months now.

EMN: How did you get your start?

BN: Alex Wolf went to the same school as me and she started it, then referred me. We met the pres and vp of gang 215 – this included meeting gangsters like Maui Wowies, a real cool player and friend of mine. um… so then we all played in that gang for 2 rounds, then Maui and I started another gang that dominated…and then I met Lefty and we started BH… so yeah… the bloodhounds were formed and the rest is history written by blood on the walls.

EMN: There’s no denying that the BloodHounds have been the dominate family for the past couple of rounds. Do you have any advice on how to run a successful family?

BN: Rule with a gun and iron fist!!! Just kidding…just kidding… um… it’s pretty easy really. Just meet all the cool people, become friends, start a gang with the most ruthless player in the game. Have 3 simple rules, and try to help with whatever the awesome members need. Don’t accept everyone because then there will be no one to hit in rival gangs. Rejecting people sucks but it’s part of the game.

EMN: You talk about being a ruthless player…what do you think the key to getting ahead in the mob game is?

BN: Get your stats up quick and don’t tick mobsters with high stats off. You’ll regret it the whole round while you sit in the hospital.

EMN: Word on the street is that you’re retiring so I have to ask, what does the future hold for Bella Nevermore?

A change comes over her face and Bella sighs. She thinks for a minute before she answers.

BN: I’m gonna miss the game but I’m gonna finish college soon, keep in touch with all my friends here on my myspace, and spend time with someone really amazing. (a sweet smile crosses her face as she says this) But you might see me visit occasionally.

So what happens during the rumble??

At 12:00 noon, PST, the website will go down for a short period of time while Admin sets the game up for the rumble.

When the site comes back up, things will look a little different. There will be fewer options on the left side of the screen. The hospital is gone, and is replaced by the morgue.

To attack someone, use the “online now” or the “total” functions at the bottom of your screen. Only players level 10 and above who have been active in the last 30 days are allowed to participate in the rumble, so you will notice the numbers will get smaller and smaller because once you are killed, you are off the total player list.

Once you have been killed, an event will show up on your list to tell you who killed you. You can also check the morgue to see who killed you, and who is killing everyone else. Be sure to refresh the screen to keep up with the action.

That’s pretty much all there is to it! If you have any further questions, feel free to ask a staff member! GOOD LUCK!!

Why do I need a house?

Levels also come into play here as the higher your level the more energy you have to spend at the gym.

…………………………………………………….

services and they also help refill your will, depending on your level and which one you chose, they will refill your will from 10 to about 50% for the money.

It is important that you know that you must refill your will before your energy, since doing it the other way around will wipe out your energy in the process.

A) On line attacking is rude, but not illegal,

If one particular person is attacking you for no reason, it doesn’t hurt to ask them to wait till you are off line. They may not listen but it doesn’t hurt.

If you have attacked someone and they are retaliating while you are on line, this is part of the game, sit back and read the newspaper while you wait out your hospital time.

Before you get into the habit of on line attacking Remember that the butt you try to kick today may be the butt you have to kiss tomorrow.

…………………………………………………….

Please message me if you have a question that you don’t see an answer to here. If it is unique to you, I will try to answer it or find an answer for you.

If it is a question that is more general that I have missed, I will add it to this list.
