Classic Werewolf: Return of The Wolf OOC
« on: April 03, 2015, 09:18:57 PM »
It's been far too long since we've had a good old fashioned mafia-type game around E! I'd like to put one together, so I figured the best place to start would be an interest check.

I'm looking to run a good old fashioned game of Werewolves of Miller's Hollow with a few bonus roles thrown in for a bit of a twist. I've got a few ideas for variants,  which I'll put on a poll to see what people like best.

I'm hoping for a game of somewhere between 15-19 players. I'll gladly take a few extra, and would be willing to run a game with as few as 11 (any fewer and I may just run a new game of One Night instead).

If there's enough basic interest I'll type up a rules, roles, and OOC thread over the next couple of days.

So anyway, who would be interested in some classic Mafia gaming?

Current player count: 21

Oh crap.  Can I change my vote?  That first variant (two opposed teams of bad guys) is something I've always wanted to do; however, it requires a large number of players.

I've managed with 14- 2 wolves, 1 vampire. I don't know how to change votes on polls, let me see what I can do.

Anyway, to expand on that style a little, here's how I usually run what I call 'Twilight Mafia', because the reactions I get are priceless.

The werewolf team has the power of misdirection, at least one member of the team shows up to the seer as a regular villager, and the village has at least one lycan (villager that reveals as a werewolf) in play. They also have the advantage of knowing who they attacked. If that player doesn't die, there's a chance they were either a special villager worth saving or a vampire.

The vampires cannot be killed during the night phase. Not by werewolf attacks, not by poisoning. Any attack on a vampire will be treated the same as one that was blocked by a bodyguard. The only way to get rid of a vamp is during the day.

Either team can only win when the other is completely gone, and they match/beat the village in numbers. Every night, each team gets a chance to kill. To make up for it, the village tends to have a variety of powers, a few extra potions for the witch, a bodyguard, and so on.

One spin I also really like, if the players are particularly skilled, is to use a variant on the seer. Rather than picking one player to learn the role of, the seer picks two, and learns whether they are on the same team or not.

That's 6, more than halfway to my minimum to run a decent sized game!

So we've hit the 11 minimum, if we get 4 more, we can run Twilight! Please feel free to invite any friends you may want to join in as well, everyone!
