I apologize to all if I've been slow creating this. I have hard finals on Monday and Wednesday next week, so I've been studying as much as I can for them. I will be on DDO a lot after Wednesday, so there's no need to worry about my activity.

This game is set the 1469-1471 years. It was a time of turmoil. The usurping Yorkist king Edward IV was overthrown for being unpopular. Margaret of Anjou ruled briefly before Edward IV wiped out the Lancastrians in 1471 and the country became pacified for the time being. The majority Lancastrians don't know who they can trust, while the minority Yorkists are attempting vigorously to get Edward IV back his throne.

I'm new to modding, so I have asked Lannan to be my co-mod.

I hope that everyone who signs up for this game is familiar with mafia, and is planning on being active. Please don't sign up if you don't fit either of these two qualifications.

This game will start when I get 13 people plus some replacements. It won't start before Wednesday, however.

Sign-ups:

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
11.

Replacements:

I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Who made the roles?

I made the roles, but I'm going to message lannan to see if he thinks they have a good balance.

It should be.

What's the point of having characters if there's no risk of getting CC'd?

I can see maybe giving 1 solid fake claim to the mafia... but no more than one.

that said, you should try to assign characters so that there are extra "good guy"characters/potential town characters who are Unassigned so that Mafia can try to figure out a potentially safe fake claim on their own

For example if it were Scooby Doo mafia you wouldn't want to put all the main characters in the game if they're going to be Town, b/c then that doesn't leave Mafia anything to claim.

Because the game should be more then about characters and theme analysis.
The game should not rely on dumb luck to hurt mafia (i.e. RVS).
Also, by having a fake claim, more strategy is allowed.

I can see maybe giving 1 solid fake claim to the mafia... but no more than one.
This is what I usually do.

This is good advice.
Also, make sure town has minor characters among them, too.
My work here is, finally, done.

You don't have characters to get cc'd you have characters for flavor, and theme, and to add some oomf to the game. The mod should give mafia someone who isn't necessarily lolevil just somewhere in between, and have them come up with their own role. I don't believe mafia should have a solid fake claim unless there's a janitor in the game which is where they would get it from, but then that would imply a roleblocker for town every mafia role has a counterpart otherwise no balance. And if it were scooby doo mafia that'd be awesome I can see Daphne being mafia assuming that the good guys are always town is sometimes a good assumption I guess, but you'd have to know what the mod likes to do for flavor or something like that.

But that would defeat the point of a flavor'd game o.o you don't know the roles and can't guess which roles go with which character.
