Abuse of GM powers! Silencing the masses now TRPG? :P

The corruption knows no bounds!

What do you mean by all vanilla? Just mafia and innocents, no special roles?

I was actually planning on pitching a round of werewolves during the Deception break. Depending on what you're looking for, maybe I can help.

Yup, just normal people and maifa, no superpowers, just deduction and lies.

Not exactly nobody. A lot of us have shown interest. Just don't have enough people.

Well, true, not nobody!

I have been looking for more games. I don't see many updated for this year at all.

There should be at least some.

I'll run one after the Deception break begins if we get enough interest. I haven't had terrible luck getting them started.

I have to admit, I prefer to play with at least a bodyguard, and love it most with a seer and some roles that cast shade, but I can do a vanilla round if enough people are interested.

So how do people get into the games? Does the GM start sending PM's out to see if they want to play?

Sorry I have no clue how this works. We used to have several games going and now they are done. I am up for any of them.

I think it could work with a fun theme and the promise of PMing allowed so people can strategies and power play. Well find out, I just made a sign up sheet.

That can get stale really fast asa then it just becomes random guessing.

It's the exact opposite of random guessing, but enough talk about that in this game's thread. :)

I've run plenty of vanilla games IRL, and it's never come to random guessing, and that's without the PM sneakiness and backstabbery going on.

"What am I doing wrong here? I've got all the players involved- why are there only 11 sets of cards?" - A completely idiotic GM who is definitely not me.

Everything is sent out on my end, so now we wait for an initial posting from our Forensic Scientist.

You don't have to worry until you start having arguments with yourself.

Those of you unfamiliar with me; every other weekend I have family commitments that usually keep me a little too busy for a heavy presence on Elliquiy. This is one of those weekends, and it's a pretty big one, so I'll be a little slower this weekend. That said, our FS has everything they need, so unless a specific rules question comes up, things should be able to flow smoothly.

I think I have narrowed it down to about two or three possibilities--I'm going to give other people a chance to try to solve the crime first, though.  :-)

And oh, yeah.  Just wait until you get to the Time of Day clue.  You'll be like, "Uh, can I pick None of the Above?"

lol Are the clues the same every time? Like time of day, witness noticed, etc.?

They are randomly drawn, so some might show up again.

There's less than 20, and we use 6 per game, so repeats are inevitable. I thought aboit setting aside anything that was already seen, but I was worried I'd break the game's balance if every FS didn't have the same chance to draw the same useful clues.
