So, I'm 5th in the hopper, but I've got a good reason for posting this now. I've got two legit set-ups this time around. One is basically a slightly-modified version of One Night Ultimate Werewolf, which I've played many times IRL, and the other is a set-up I ran in Hangouts several times with great success.

One Night: https://docs.google.com...

Role Swap:
https://docs.google.com...

So, this thread serves two purposes:
1. To gauge interest. VOTING IS NOT A COMMITMENT TO PLAY.
2. To have a vote on which set-up you'd rather play.
As well, if any of you want to loudly complain about the balance, this is still the phase where I can do something about it, so I don't mind.

Votes
One Night
1.
2.
3.
4.
etc.

Role Swap
1.
2.
3.
4.
etc.

Should I not get enough interest, I'll just run another bastard game.
SO to Bailey, the love of my life <3

Depends on how long everyone else takes with sign-ups. If there hasn't been two sign-ups posted in 48 hours, I'll go ahead with sign-ups in the near future. Otherwise, it'll be about a month.

Both sound fun. If I'm not busy I'll play when the time comes.

As long as it isn't anything like your last game.

It's a semi-open, so I'll hear public ideas. https://docs.google.com...
I applied some changes to the Google doc today. I switched in some more traditionally affiliation neutral roles to make balancing for more players easier, and clarified the order of night actions. It'll be a smaller game, but that's easier to read, less likely to swing, and I won't have to work with replacements as much. Still, I'd like to try making games up to 15 players possible. Thoughts?

Having 15 players would be cool. Swing is fine but there's gotta be a realistic chance to win despite it becoming more difficult. Games aren't fun if a decision on N1 ends the game for either side.

I don't have the time to look at the setup for balance at the moment, but I'd recommend getting some feedback from others, too. Maybe F-16 will offer some feedback. Definitely ask Saph, too. The more people looking at the setup, the better.

I liked the mechanics a lot in live mafia but in forum mafia, the standard for balance should be much higher, because it's a much larger investment of time and effort. At least that's how I feel about it. I want to know that I have equal chances of winning as the other team.
