I was going to run a Vampire the Masquerade game, but I feel that might be too ambitious. Instead I offer you 'The Tribe', inspired by a board game I believe it would work perfectly on this forum and be a lot of fun. It is also vaguely relevant to the many debates on politics and morality.

The Story
You each play a member of a stone age tribe in a temperate (European) region. The tribe was forced to migrate to seek food and during the long arduous journey both the elders and the children have died (or possibly been eaten) leaving behind the healthy young adults (such as yourself). The tribe has discovered a small fertile mountain valley and has made camp. Your aim is simply to survive and breed.

To sign up simply put your name down, choose your characters gender (if left undefined it will default to whatever it says on your profile). I will restrict it to 10 players.

1:
2:
3:
4:
5:
6:
7:
8:
9:
10:

(Game rules will follow but there is no character creation you don't really need to read them).
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Pretty much...

Well I was going to work on the assumption that violence would be directed against rival tribes... but that can be changed if people want it a bit grittier.

You have all pretty much cottoned onto the basic principles however...

Depends on the game. This one is new so I have no idea... The usual is Mafia games which you will see around a lot. If you're interested, I'd recommend reading the first post in the Beginners Mafia Game 3 thread that askbob created today. It gives a good overview of the purpose of the game. ^_^

Don't worry, it's quite straightforward.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot.
