    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. :D

    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.

    Game 3.

    Game 3....

    ...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.
