    You should add me to the waiting to host list Shaddus.

    I have a Manhattan Project mafia setup. I'm slightly stoked to host it.

    Yesss @Shaddus, update the hosting part with the new hosts like Silvanus and Hoaracle!

    Also I think I'll open sign-ups tomorrow if Tremula doesn't get back to us. Sound good to everyone?

    Third post in a row, but oh man, a Danganronpa Mafia game would actually be pretty intense. A proper horror mafia, either that or maybe based on Persona 4, or Zero: 999/Virtue's Last Reward (but I'm not sure I could justify encouraging people to spoil the latter, that game is the worst thing to spoil ever because experiencing it is so perfect).

    Suggestion:   Secret Hitler (a mafia spinoff)

    I recently found out about this game. Would be awesome to see it being played here.

    Ok I haven't decided on a theme yet, but I'd like to run a mafia game at some point, I have some ideas I want to test out on unwitting subjects, muahaha. Ahem. Add me to the list!




  • IeptixIeptix Member, Moderator, Gods Posts: 819 Divine
    So at some point I got it in my head that a mafia game based off Steven Erikson's The Malazan Book of the Fallen would be a good idea, only that is an utterly insane idea. If you've read the series, you probably have a bit of an inkling about how utterly mad this idea is. And yet, here I am, wanting to do it anyway.

    There are a few caveats to this, however:

    1) The game would, by its nature, be very spoiler heavy, and I find it unlikely that there are enough people who have both read it and are interested in a mafia game and are on these forums. I would try to avoid too much in terms of spoiling events from the series (though this would very likely fall very short of perfect), but even describing character powers and relationships (and even the existence of some characters!) is a huge amount of spoiler-level information. I'd be willing to allow people who haven't read to play, though it'd be very explicitly noted that it contains major spoilers to the single greatest literary work ever written (not hyperbole, it is seriously that good), and anyone who has read it would very likely have some advantage (though hopefully small enough).
    2) This would be a very, very power-heavy game, with plenty of non-standard powers. We're running the gamut here from munition-tossing sappers to Elder Gods. So many powers.
    3) Many players in game. Would probably want at least 20. Probably more. Balanced on how many roles I can reasonably put together and how many people are actually willing to play.
    4) I've never run a forum/asynchronous mafia game before. I've done small, real-time, in-person mafia games, but with significantly different mechanics than anything forum-based. So, you know, there's a good chance it just completely blows. But hopefully it doesn't.
    5) Nothing I write for any of the flavour text would ever even begin to approach the quality of Erikson's prose.

    I am busy, and this is a rather ambitious project, so it'd take quite a while to get it ready (not to mention the people ahead of me in line), but if enough people are interested (and have either read the series or are willing to brave the spoilers) then I'll start putting things together as I am able.

    @Shaddus, you can go ahead and run yours if you're ready. Mine's being a butt because I'm overcomplicating things trying to make it fun and SOMEWHAT balanced.

    So pseudo-lineup looks like...

    1) @Tremula - set-up in-progress [skip]
    6) @Lavinya
    7) @Ieptix
    8) Me (because that was so much fun I want to do it again)

    ...?

    Sorry, I haven't had a lot of time to work on mine. Let @Silvanus do his.
    2017/04/23 00:29:14 - Nefara honoured Shaddus for: For his dedication to the Earthen Lords and Lady, 
    and willingness to assist our young Pupils. Despite his choosing to not progress himself further, he 
    still works for the Geomancers, and the Engine, in any way he is capable. Also comes with a healthy 
    dose of rebellion, to ensure us of the Council can not be too relaxed.

    I'll set up a signup thread tonight probably around 0 GMT. It'll be 12 players.

    Sorry, @Celina, it's going to be a power heavy game with Pokemon instead of traditional powers.

    I've a week's holiday coming up with no internet, so if I can map out some roles and story blurbs during that week, can add me to the hosting list.

    It'll probably be something something set in space...

    So, people seem to like games with lots of powers and triggered events. Who knew? In light of that, I am willing to run my Athenian mafia setup at some point. Just put me on the list and yell when it gets down to me.
    Any sufficiently advanced pun is indistinguishable from comedy.

    I really really want to read @Kiradawea's Steven Universe mafia. ;;)
  • TremulaTremula the Fate's choice for Drocilla Member Posts: 2,459 Transcendent
    Can she and Sylandra team up to write it? Because holy cripes, the eyegasm.

    +1 for Sylandra's involvement in anything.

    (FYI just finished up a 16-person Downton Abbey setup, which I'm happy to use whenever.)

    I absolutely love Downton Abbey! I usually watch it with my parents when I am home but sadly they do not have the fifth season on Amazon yet...so I am slightly behind concerning the plot. When you host it, I would really like to take part. There's nothing like British nobility and intrigue... 

    ...and, of course, Maggie Smith with a lightsaber :D

    I...what? I am going to need to watch this show, I think...
  • AerdurethAerdureth Member Posts: 74 Adept
    This was in a special though. One of the actors filmed some Star Wars themed scenes to raise money for a MS charity.
  • LuceLuce Fox Populi Member Posts: 2,332 Transcendent
    Now I just have this image of McGonagall with a lightsaber going all, "I've always wanted to do this." before breaking out a can of Yoda on some death-eaters. Or "These are not the students you're looking for, Dolores. You want to go home and resign from the Ministry."
  • SylandraSylandra Friend of Dog Member Posts: 4,199 Transcendent
    No worries, @Aerdureth! It's based mainly on season 1, with a splash of season 2. :D
