The thread setup is till in-progress, but to give you an idea (plus to see the updated confirmed-players list) here it is!
I'm going to be setting up a Shakespearean-themed mafia-style game in Valerian's Vault
. Don't know what that is? Go check out the previous games played there.
In this game, various characters from Shakespeare's plays have been mysteriously cast out of their plays and into the real world, all memories of where they have come from have been lost. As characters are killed or lynched, their role is revealed, and they are sent back to their plays.
For those that have never played before- roles are chosen randomly, be it a minor or major character. However, if there is a character you'd like to see
in game, let me know, I'll do my best to work them in.
Depending on how many people join in, I may have one or two more roles to add. Have someone you think may better suit a role? Suggest. I've got a couple I'm not totally set on, so you may convince me.
Much like you did for Prospero, once per night, you turn invisible and spy on one of the characters, learning that personís role in all of this.
You work hard to prevent the violence and help those in need, but pick wisely who you help -you only can shield one person during the night.
You poison your brother for the throne, and now you have one chance to do it again -once during the the game in the night phase, you may pick one person to poison in their sleep.
If killed during the day, you pick someone to haunt (much like you did Macbeth), driving them slowly insane and causing them to kill themselves during the next night phase. Note that being killed during the night phase does not activate this ability
Cupid- Friar Lawrence
You are a peaceful person, and in hopes of bringing everyone together, you marry two of the other characters, revealing their roles to each other, but not to yourself.
No man of woman born can kill you, and no villains can, either. Note, this does not negate a lynching, only being taken out by the three villains.
Being a caring mother, you took the poison meant to kill your son, Hamlet. In a similar fashion, you can protect one person from being lynched by killing yourself before the act is carried out. This ability must be used before the final vote tally is posted.
, Aaron the Moor
In the night you murder one of the other players, sending them back to their plays.
Star-Crossed Lovers- Decided by Cupid. They know of each otherís roles, and must trust the others completely. If one of the lovers dies, the other follows their lover to death -they shall never part. For the lovers to win, they must remain the last two standing.
We're looking for somewhere between 16-20+ players.
