    Good afternoon, everyone!

    I'm starting to piece together the 3rd game we'll play, and I was thinking of making it a more themed game. Basic mechanics, but themed—no advanced scenarios or Saw-like situations. :badgrin:

    The theme?

    Sherlock Holmes, and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. :D

    I love this series, and with enough players we should have enough for two Scum teams again, OR one large Scum team and an investigation-immune Serial Killer. Also, some roles will be modified, where a Town player could gain the ability to Roleblock once in the game if he or she survives to Day 4, etc.

    Some major characters in this game will be Professor Moriarty, Lord Blackwood, Sherlock Holems, Watson, and Simza.

    Does this seem like the direction you'd like to go for our 3rd game, guys? If so, I figured I'd start busting my hump now getting the stage set. :D:lol:

    There is one small problem.

    In the 19th Century, women's roles were somewhat limited. We were someone's daughter or wife, a maid or governess (severely limiting free movement because they're always on duty,) a nun (again, freely roaming around town is limited,) a prostitute, a barmaid, not much else to choose from.

    Usually in themed games, male players can receive female character roles, and vice versa. This makes it so that the playerbase remains anonymous.

    Also—and this gets more advanced—the game mod can give Scum what's known as "fake claims." If a Godfather if given a detailed character role about, say, Professor Moriarty, I could give him a second dupe character PM about Watson, in case people try to sort that player out over storyline details. :badgrin:
