Like Sweeny Todd's Mrs Lovett....
in reality there arent that many women serial killers....compared to the number of men serial killers but i think women are just more tricky
june is gonna be a busy month for me....but i would love to play
I am grateful for everyone who's made these games possible.
There are a lot of "black widows" out there...
Sure but might I suggest you make the roles correspond somewhat to the story. If you make Holmes a good guy and Watson a bad guy and Holmes have no power but some random character have a power it gets to be a mess. I was in a theme game where every single detail was randomized and the mod storyline based on the theme ended up totally dominating the game in a bad way such that town was lynching power roles because they just happened to have the name of a villain from the theme and the mod narrative made it seem like they were a threat to town. It was a complete mess. I think we ran a couple thousand posts on the first day and about as many on the second.
Valid points, Sameech. I'm planning to give Scum fakeclaims, in order to be protected. A Godfather would first receive a Professor Moriarty Role PM, but then be given a dupe Watson/whatever Role PM in order to fake out those inquiring about storyline details.
Alright, seeing as how new real-life developments are unfolding, I don't think it'd be wise for me to commit to making this game just yet. It wouldn't be right if I didn't put enough effort into this themed game, and ended up half-assing it. That would stink. Sooo... I'm placing this idea on the back-burner until my employers stop bouncing me around the state.
...what to do?
I don't think we're ready yet, either, for an advanced theme game with intricate mechanics. We should stick with the bare-bone basics for now, and slowly introduce other general roles, like the Tracker, Watcher, the Masons, and the Mafia Strongman and Mafia Traitor.
What I do think we're ready for, however, is a Closed Setup.
Basically, I'll add you all to the party and you'll dance to the music, but you won't know there's a Doctor in the house, or a Godfather, etc. That will definitely add to the mystique of Mafia.
Haha sweet. I hope there is a secret serial killer
Will there be theme roles?
