*Aka, the something something historical with gratuitous plotting mafia, as it has been dubbed by @Shaddus.

Hello everyone! I'll be hosting the next Mafia game, loosely themed around the time period of the CW's show, "Reign," which centers on Mary, Queen of Scots, as well as her rivalry with Elizabeth Tudor of England. I'll be less focused on the show itself, and more on the spirit of it and the spirit of the history that it's based upon, so if you don't watch the show it shouldn't affect how you play really. But hopefully this will give it the flavor of courtly intrigue, political backstabbing, and the delicious drama that makes mafia oh so very fun.


(History buffs be warned that the contents will have a dash of soapiness, and more focus on flavor than on historical accuracy.)

If you're interested in signing up, please post below!

    If I'm not good enough for Lusternia, then it is no longer good enough for me.

    If there's a free spot at the court, put me in, though only if there's a free spot. I've been in two games already. If there isn't... I suppose I'll just remain an advisor from the sidelines.

    I'm actually hoping for a big game, so I'd like to ideally accept everyone interested. I have 16 roles atm but have a few stray extra ideas if needed!

    Hope you brought plenty of killing roles then. OwO

    I think @Yarith and @Falmiis at least also wanted to join? May be wrong, but shouldn't be that hard to get 16 players.

    How is Reign compared to Tudors. I got bored of the Tudors 3/4 through the first season because while the acting was mostly good and the sets/costumes fantastic, the plot didn't move along fast enough. It seemed more interested in shots of gorgeous naked women than intrigue and plot. And I really really hate to say it but without enough story, HBO style softcore really can't carry a series on its own.

    From what little I know of you, Kaalak, you would hate it. They take no stock in historical accuracy 99% of the time; it's just soap opera fun. If you like CW shows like Gossip Girl, you might enjoy it, but it's basically historical fanfiction.

    Edit: this is one reason I'm not 100% relying on the show as a guideline for the mafia game, nor purely history either. Blend of the two really.

    Wow, look at everyone who signed up while I was at work.

    Good you intended for a lot of roles. I'm in.

  • SylandraSylandra Friend of Dog Member Posts: 4,298 Transcendent
    All right, that's 16 roles filled! Probably best we stop here just in case it gets unwieldy. I'll be setting up the starting roles and preparing tonight. Fingers crossed I can send out role PMs tonight as well. (Heads up: this is my first time hosting and no promises the game will be balanced perfectly. I'm just running on pure excitement here. :D )

    Mafia sign-up is officially CLOSED. If anyone else wants to sign up for the waiting list in case we lose anyone, please post here expressing your interest for the wait list!

    Also advance warning: Mary was a common name in this era of history. But Mary Tudor (aka Bloody Mary) and Mary Stewart (aka Queen of Scots) are different people. I'll do my best to keep things like that easy to differentiate and to follow, but let me know if you have any questions with the upcoming flavor text!

    I've never done a mafia set up before either nor reviewed any other real setups, but I set mine up for 12 players.

    When eventually I get to hosting, would someone be kind enough to review the roles/powers to make suggestions, if they are not playing?

    Okay, sending out role PMs now! Standby. Thread opening shortly after the PM sending is complete.

    I'll be happy to give you a hand with that.
