Hunter X Hunter: Yorknew City Arc

Overview:
This game will use all non-standard roles and contain a plethora of mechanisms not found in a conventional mafia game. As such, players should expect to rely heavily on behavioral analysis over role analysis. That said, the characters and many of their interactions will strongly relate to the Hunter x Hunter anime series. Failure to watch said series will critically cripple a players ability to succeed in this game.

Requirements:
1. Watch through episode 58 of the 2011 Hunter x Hunter anime. [That series can be found here: http://www.crunchyroll.com... ] At 20 minutes an episode this endeavor should require approximately 20 hours over the course of a month. Though, most people who start the anime will finish it within a few days.
2. Possess a mild understanding of traditional mafia mechanics.
3. Availability to play in mid to late May through mid June.

Final Thoughts:
Due to the requirements, I'm posting these sign-ups well in advance of the planned launch. As I will begin my chem PhD in late June this will likely be my final mafia game for a number of years. Unlike past games, I have no intention to bastard mod; my main focus will be on balancing a litany of novel roles. Play if you would like to try something new and have a little time to commit. There currently exists no restriction on number of players.

Sign-ups:
1.

Doesn't the relation to the series promote character analysis, which in turn, diminishes the need for behavior analysis?
My work here is, finally, done.

I've watched a lot of anime in my life Maikuru. HxH is probably the very best; contrary to the misleading levity of the first three episodes, the series has the deepest and most gripping plot I've witnessed. If you really don't have the time in the next month to watch then so be it, but I promise you wouldn't be disappointed.

This same requirement was posted a year ago for a mafia game on mafia scum (covering this same arc). The only difference was a two week period was allotted instead of four weeks. I picked up the anime one Friday, thinking that I'd probably watch two episodes a day, I finished through #58 by Saturday evening. It's that good.

I'm not going to unsign you Yay, but my troll tolerance is super limited. There's a mild chance I'd just instakill or replace you if you're intent on just trolling everyone.

Aye, you'll have character analysis at your disposal. What you'll be missing is role analysis and mod balancing psych due to the novel nature of the roles. Additionally, take this how you want, the setup will be much different than a standard mafia game. With that in mind you'll probably be able to spot a blatant character lie, but it'll be very difficult to tell if you should lynch that person sans behavior analysis. =)

Are you joining my game?

It looks like I have something to watch once I return from vacation.

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

I find trolling rather dull in mafia. If you're not interested in helping your own team then signing up for a team game likely promises a hindrance. I'd rather balance my games with roles/characters being the main consideration. If I'm forced to think in terms of, "well Yay is basically a free mislynch target because he's just going to troll through DP1 so I better give the town an IC to balance the..." then some component of the game actively becomes the mod gaming the players. I'd rather maintain some sense of semi-objective laissez faire modenomics.

ha, plus jifpop is even worse than i am

Then it's a good thing my statement was not limited to just you.

If Mikal and Hatstand play, I'll play.

On a side note, if you save me from this schoolwork I might also consider it. -_- I'm done tomorrow evening though... So close...

I don't have time to play a game like this right now, though I wish that I did. I'll be playing again during my winter break, in July. My apologies.
