PREFACE

I will not begin this game until both of the existing games end; 7th has priority before me in the list. Since it will take awhile to fill up, I am posting my signups now. I hope that this game fills up, and I hope that everyone who signs up has fun.

The way this works is that there are 3 thematic options for players to choose from. If you sign-up for any game, you sign-up for all games; i.e., you sign up for whatever option ends up being selected. So, please be ready to take on any of the options below. I think they're all fun, though some are more ambitious than others.

When you sign up, you can vote for which option you want; you have 2 votes that you can split between the choices. So, you can either cast both of your votes for 1 option, or you can cast 1 vote each for 2 options. Furthermore, depending on how many people sign-up, not all options will be able to be used. If we get 17 people, only options that accommodate that number of people can be selected. If there is a tie, I will just choose which of the tied games will be selected.

I'll go over the games' rules in the DP OP at the onset of the game--the rules will be similar, though not identical, to the rules I've employed in prior games. I will now review each of the three options available; hopefully they all seem appealing.

OPTIONS

Option 1: Magical Creatures Mafia

The games has a semi-open set-up. By this I mean that I will publicly post the list of possible roles and flavors in the game. There will be more roles and flavors than players, and there may be some multiples (some people may get the same role) to allow ample possibilities for fake claims. All roles are pretty standard, and can be easily researched on MafiaScum. My definition of your role is the authoritative one, however, but the overlap with MafiaScum is significant. If you have any questions, please ask. All magical creatures can similarly be researched with a 10 minute internet search--my goal is not to be overly confusing. If you're looking for a standard mafia game, this one fits that description.

For this game, I am looking for between 15 and 17 players.

Option 2: Wildlife Mafia

This game is, fairly clearly, about wildlife. Particularly, every character will be a living, non-human organism. Most roles are standard, traditional roles, though some of the roles for this one will be a bit more inventive. For the traditional roles, these can be easily researched on MafiaScum. My definition for those role is the authoritative one, however, but the overlap with MafiaScum is significant. I am confident that it's balanced and that this should be a fun, non-confusing game. Frankly, I had a lot of fun thinking up role justifications for each character-role pairing, lol. All animals should be easily researchable on Wikipedia, and so the theme itself shouldn't be too out-there either.

For this set-up, I am looking for between 15 and 16 players.

Option 3: Star Trek: Deep Space 9 Mafia

This is a straightforward mafia game with pretty straightforward roles. The theme is centered around Star Trek: Deep Space 9, which is a television series within the Star Trek franchise. All material will be canon, and easily researchable on the Star Trek wiki, called Memory Alpha, or by watching parts of the series. The theme is confined to the show itself, and is not about any canon material outside the show. Memory Beta is the non-canon wiki, and you must be sure that this is not where you're getting your information. But, even if you're not too familiar with the show, it should be easy to find out the information you need to play. I am confident that this set up is balanced, and it should be fun. Qapla'!

For this game, I'm looking for between 15 and 17 players.

I'll post the sign-up sheet in a second. If you find even one or two of these options appealing, please consider signing-up. Thank you!

I once did semi-open on mafia scum and the town broke the game wide open by mass claiming and then only lynching players from slots with duplicates. I was mafia and we lost spectacularly. This is going to be fun as hell.

My set-up should not allow that to happen. There will be twice as many possible roles as players, and I will permit some duplicates.

Actually, I shouldn't say that...There will be less than twice as many, but still plenty of room for people to claim.

As I wrote in the OP: When you sign up, you can vote for which option you want; you have 2 votes that you can split between the choices. So, you can either cast both of your votes for 1 option, or you can cast 1 vote each for 2 options.

Oh ok.

I would split my vote for Wildlife, but I just can't see it winning.
