Also, your sample banner with the mafia playing cards is about a million times better than what was previously discussed for the possible new interface banner.

And those mafia playing cards are the best I've seen so far (if modified for text). They're clean, crisp, simple, and not overly cartoon-y. /approve, well done Quilford on that one. We should add text and make a deck from that style.

Nice, simple, clean. I like the playing cards with role pictures too, nice touch.
Engineers accepted the word “planetary” in its epicyclic sense, but I was always conscious that it also meant “wandering,” “erratic.”

Compassion, Common Sense, and Context should always go together.

I like the concept a lot. I have some small typographic complaints, though, but I think they can be easily addressed. What program did you design in?

It's beautiful, spring. I am 100% in favor of it with the small, baby, itsy-bitsy criticism that I would like the theme to come in dark as well as light.

But, seriously, it's very attractive! I especially like the "Vanilla Townie" thing.

I like it overall. Good job SL! :)

Spoiler:
The non-header parts of it though should be changed to match the header.

yep

Also if that does wind up printed on t-shirts please don't include the ".net" at the end, wearing a t-shirt with an URL on it is tacky as fuck

Yea, we can drop the .net, if people want to know what it is it'll come up on google anyway.

That's an easy enough fix, but it's not my call to make.
I understand wanting to drop the .net, but I also think in term of advertising value it makes more sense to keep it, especially since mafiascum.com is a porn site.

Keep the .net

I personally would stick with the current (sepia) theme if this was implemented. I like it and all but for me it isn't good enough for me to change.

Nice work though, and a hell of a lot better than the other stuff I have seen.
