So now that round 12 has concluded, I think steph is in line to run the next one?

I believe that's correct.

Any special requests?

It's confusing, but fun. Need a full house for it.

I'd pass it off to Larkin if this round were Inquisitorheap, since I'm not familiar with his system enough to run it.

It's not that difficult once you work within the system honestly. Most of the players who were involved in the last game could probably help you run it. I would volunteer to GM one, but with my work schedule there'd be nights where I simply wouldn't be there to end the day and provide prompt results :/

He could... but if we run into any more of those situations where we have to make up new rules it should really be larkin doing that, its his baby. Last time we had lots and lots of changes made to the rules as the game went on.

INQUISITORHEAP

This, most complicated, but most fun, since it involves everyone and there are few deaths at the beginning and more in the end.

I just want to see a game of this go to the point of open warfare in the streets. Last game ALMOST got to that point but was stopped short :*(

Okay, I could probably run a round of Inquisitorheap.

Larkin I'll need basically ALL OF YOUR NOTES on the format.

make sure to grab the ruleset from the rules thread, not the OP of the game thread. The OP of the rules threat was updated after the game finished with altered stuff.

Inb4 8 sign up. Won't be playing inquisitor, I didn't even read the last game after I died and I forgot to use my power in my last round.

Like Bent said. I would LOVE to play in the round, and you're quite creative enough to make it fun. Poke me in PMs or IRC if you want to pose questions about certain things, but most of it is being consistently consistent.

Give me a couple of days to completely wrap my head around everything. And make a spreadsheet.

Lol! I honestly wouldn't worry too much about tracking VOTES as much as just tracking the night actions. The hardest part is to make sure all the Night Actions happen, and anything that HAPPENED that night gets reported correctly (aka an Investigation on a person who was just Recruited, should return the newest state). ANd be liberal with information, if two people are doing the same action to the same person, they should both know about the other person. But if one person is doing something to one of them, they'll know that someone else is about, but not who.

TBH, I feel like it might be time for another short break. I only managed 16 for my game, and we usually see 20+.

Steph

I was thinking along similar lines, actually.

So we won't be starting this right away. Is a week too long to let everyone's heads unwind?

A week at least, if not longer. Also, advertise in the day thread, I got a few of the old crew back to the party by doing that.

Sounds awesome, though if it's starting in a week I'll probably have to sit this one out, due to vacation.

This.

And yeah, at the very least dont start it this weekend due to activity. And in the meantime we can all advertise it. I have a couple of people in mind who showed interest on IRC, Ill also poke some former fhc mafia players, and there is a wh40k channel on griefplay Ill advertise this in... once I ask to get unbanned (which would be a first time ever Ive asked for that, be flattered guys :p )

Toxic

Btw can someone (Larkin?) do a quick writeup describing the theme/rules/setup for recruitment purposes?

Also need to set up a proper signup thread.

Toxic
July 5 2013, 09:22:24 AM
Heres what I just wrote on IRC, in the griefplay channel on griefplay, but Im sure Larkin can come up with something way better :)


<+Toxic> Can someone please unban me from #wh40k ?
<+Toxic> I want to advertise a wh40k themed round of mafia game from failheap
<+Toxic> Imagine 20-30 people trapped on a planet thats been deemed heretic
<+Toxic> the inquisition has arrived
<+Toxic> and will begin rooting out the heretic cult
<+Toxic> meanwhile the cult recruits more members each day (well, as an option amongst other actions)
<+Toxic> and the poor villagers are trapped in between the two power blocks
<+Toxic> with frankly little hope of surviving
<+Toxic> the entire village (villagers, cultists and the inquisition) has to vote on whom to lynch once a day
<+Toxic> and then everyone and his mother gets special night actions they can perform - obv. with the inquisition and the cult having the strongest actions available
* GAC (I@griefplay-352246B9.skybroadband.com) has joined
<+Toxic> there are special rule mechanics so that people can group up for a night
<+Toxic> and lend eachothers night action more strength
<+Toxic> and there are bonus status' such as armed and armored
<+Toxic> there is a priest, who is a public unkillable role, that you can ask to pray for your soul ....
<+Toxic> which in turn grants a 50/50 chance of your soul being saved, or you bursting into flames
<+Toxic> there are underground gangs shooting at eachother as a sub-history to the main inquisition history
<+Toxic> both are part of the village
<+Toxic> but each have in their win condition to eliminate the other gang
<+Toxic> the game isnt over until either everyone left alive is a cultist, the inquisition kills everybody, or the inquisition calls an all clear (which if called and not true will have the cultists win)
<+Toxic> and there MORE
<+Toxic> its just fucking chaos, and its awesome :)
<+Toxic> like the cultist psyker can scry a person to gain knowledge of their role/alignment ... and in doing so there is a random risk of a demon appearing (10%)
<+Toxic> said demon will flip a coin and take over either the psyker or the target of the scrying
<+Toxic> a demon gets his own seperate win condition, and a strong night kill action
<+Toxic> in fact a demon MUST kill every 3rd night as a minimum or perish
<+Toxic> with all these rules, you could end up with a heretical inquisitor, who was recruited into both criminal gangs, trained as a priest AND turned into a demon
<+Toxic> for the heck of it :p
<+Toxic> noone trusts anyone, and everyone is out to kill just about everyone else
<+Toxic> and you are OF COURSE allowed to use forum PMs and IRC private convos
<+Toxic> so there is a lot of behind the scene plotting and scheming
<+Toxic> and backstabbing
<+Toxic> so much backstabbing

The first two lines alone would have sufficed...

Anyone who would play from the griefplay channel is already here, I suspect.

Toxic
July 5 2013, 12:49:28 PM
Nope, a few people in there have shown interest when Ive told about the game before, and I know they aint registered on failheap.

Yeah still here. Full week of work, planned on setting things up on the weekend and starting up Monday.

Unfortunately this project's been extended by another week(at the last minute :psyduck:), which means I won't be able to run Round 13 smoothly.

I'll happily pass the reigns on to anyone who wants to take the round. My apologies to everyone.

I'd take it, but I'm not really into running inquisitorheap. Anyone else is welcome to have it and run that, or i'll run a normal game with a minor twist which will either make you all groan or laugh your arses off at the end of the game. Up to you lot.

I honestly think it'd be a bit unbalanced in the village's favour, simply because the mafia really cant call their shots with anything resembling reliability...
