    Looks like I'm gonna be up to bat with the next game? Fortunately, my ideas for resolution mechanics seem to be working out alright, so you can expect an opening post up tomorrow -- let's say about 24 hours from now. Assuming people turn out, this'll be an over-four year gap since my last game hosting. How exciting.

    I’m still trying to figure out exactly what mechanics I want, and what the theme will be. I haven’t reached out to anyone yet.

    I’m going to leave a big gap between games, or try to depending on if someone sets up the next game fast, but I’m going to run one about sexy spies at the sexy spy convention.

    It’ll be vanilla. Village vs Mafia. Voting removes a player, Mafia remove a player.

    However, I do want people to be able to build a picture of what’s going on, so there will be a mason duo, a seer, and maybe some other roles across the board. I might go so far as to give almost everyone a little something.

    Enough so that those without might claim they can do X and potentially get away with it.

    I am also thinking that if mafia votes for mafia the last mafia voter will be revealed. You’ll end up accusing vote swappers, but it will effectively curtail the bus throw manoeuvre.

    This is because I haven’t felt like I was in trouble as Mafia in the last couple games. Maybe I’ll bend the game too far in the other direction, but a village win will be nice for us, and a Mafia win will be hard won!

    re: the last two games I will say that both had A Lot Of Mechanics, and those games tend to favor mafia because there's so much more going on than just the vote.

    Definitely don't do this. If a seer-based network head hard calls a mafia member, this kind of rule basically outs the entire mafia team, all at once or one by one across multiple days. Even without seers, the ability for a mafia member to vote for one of their own is a core tool to remain hidden among the crowd. The option to vote for one another is what lets them stay undercover better by spreading their alibis out, rather than getting strangled out by being clumped together in a suspicious lump.

    If you're familiar with the game The Resistance (and its sequel, Avalon), imagine how the game would play if traitors were forced to deal in Failures on missions, without the option to go deep undercover and play Passes. There's depth that gets lost if you can put together a team, pass a mission, and know for certain that team is good. Hidden role games need that uncertainty in order to create suspense. At some point, you need to integrate all that uncertain information that you gained piece by piece across a game, and make as good a judgement call as you can.

    @MrBlarney
    Thanks for the reply. I’ll look into it more! That was just an off the cuff post. :+1:

  • Endless_SerpentsEndless_Serpents Registered User regular
    I will add that was for a successful vote, so you can still vote for your own as long as you don’t get caught in a winning vote for them.

    Still, I’m working on it.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    So then, either you lose another Mafia (until all dead) or the entire wagon is known village?

  • Endless_SerpentsEndless_Serpents Registered User regular
    Hm! I guess it just doesn’t work.

  • Endless_SerpentsEndless_Serpents Registered User regular
    That’s OK too, finding a problem is the road to success.

    Best to limit public reveals as much as possible, takes away the guess/play game. If you need to tune down the mafia side, you could do it in other ways such as numbers or village powers

    A fairly common setup was to give the Mafia two kills per night while they had high numbers and then take one away when they lost members.
    But that requires a somewhat larger game (like 28 players @ 4 kills/night = 7 days: vig, 2 maf, vote).
    And it can be somewhat a dampener on village participation when the two most vocal die each night.

    .. which
    By that time metric, maybe MrBs race could have stood to be one track longer, for seven days long.
    We would've been in trouble if it had been a day longer.

    What's the line for the next Phalla look like?

    I've been working on a vanilla Phalla idea involving a "game" run by Rumpelstiltskin.

    Austin and I have been in contact about yet another battle Phalla, but I haven't actually started on mechanics yet. Could certainly be a game before us I think.

    Did I remember correctly that someone was looking for a co-host to help with writing duties? I'm not too hot on the mechanics/stat-tracking side, but I think I can be helpful on the creative writing front, so if that person (or whoever, really) would like some help in that area, hit me up! :)

    Was me! Engaging with @cj iwakura and we aim to pick planning back up in September here, if you're interested in pitching in though with design/writing/hosting I can loop you in. If you're cool with being likely excluded from being able to play.

    I'll see if I can narrow down some ideas and possibly have something up sometime next week if I'm not stepping in front of anyone.

    I've got some ideas for a mostly vanilla game using the Terminator, but I'd rather wait until some of the others that people have been talking about are run first.

    I wasn’t prepared for that early finish, but 24 hours from now I’ll make my opening post. We’ll begin the game a few days after that, details to follow for…

    It’s ok, it’s not super complex. It has more in common with the last game than say, F Zero PX. It’s the narrative stuff I haven’t written up yet.

    I’m not foreseeing a start until Thursday at the earliest.

  • 38thDoe38thDoe lets never be stupid again wait lets always be stupid foreverRegistered User regular
    So the only narrative stuff you have to write up beforehand is the OP honestly, although I put out a game with no OP one time.
    I used to recommend writing the roles beforehand, but honestly you'll have so much enforced time when sending them out due to spam filter it doesn't help much.
    Obviously have the abilities and such sorted beforehand.

    Yeah, I had pre-written role texts for 6 or so different ones during the couple I ran, but what'll get you is letting the villagers know.
