I had an idea for a concept game where every role used would be an original one created by a member here. Here's how it would work:

If you have ever created a mafia role, even if it's been used on this site before you should send it to me via PM. If you have more than one, send as many as you'd like but try to use the same PM thread for clarity and cohesiveness. A role for any faction (town, mafia, third party) would be useful. If you want to submit someone else's, you can do so but just make sure you credit the creator. After a good amount are collected, I'll create a game using those roles. I figure it would require an interesting shift of strategy.

After the game, I'll create a thread posting all the role submissions whether they were used or not (since I can only use max 14). I figure that would be useful as it gives future mods a new handful of roles to choose from in future games as well. If you think this is a good idea, send me a PM titled "Concept Roles" or something and if I get a bunch of submissions then I'll assume there's interest and start sign-ups for a concept game if nobody objects sometime in the near future. I think it'd be interesting to see what people have come up with :)

I created the "Boy on an Adventure" role for the RDvsDrS mafia.
I rolled twice for each night phase, once to see the action and once for the target.
Then I gave the player the choice of whether to go through with the action, but it was cryptic; they weren't told directly what would happen.

I liked it. :/

I sent danielle a bunch of roles.

I had two new concept game ideas as well.

1) Game with no night phases. All powers can be activated at any time during the DP (mafia night kill, the vig, the cop, the role blocker, etc)

2) Each player starts off paired up in a PM with a random person. Kind of like the PM concept game, but you can't PM just anyone, and you don't know if you can trust the person in the PM with you. Maybe you can, maybe you can't...

I think the theme I'd pick for #2 would be horror films.

The point was to send it to me privately so that people didn't know what roles to expect in the game :P

Oh fail. :O
