Mafia!... in ancient Rome? [non-adult]
« on: August 10, 2009, 04:43:51 PM »
You know the Mafia party game -- well, maybe.  Players are secretly assigned roles -- villains, heroes, people with a trick up their sleeves -- and the innocents have to find the evildoers before it's too late!

But instead of mafioso, or even werewolves, how about Roman citizens trying to find the conspirators who want to assassinate the emperor?  Or how about a pirate crew seeking out the mutineers aboard their ship?

I'm looking for a few players for either or both of these games, getting underway soon.  Each game will have a maximum of twelve players -- I'm trying for a quick, light, fun style of game, with lots of impromptu role-playing thrown in just for fun.

So if you'd like to sail through the Caribbean on a pirate ship, or visit a decadent Roman bath, post here or drop me a PM.  :)

I'm going to be getting a midterm on Wednesday and I'm slightly behind on lectures, so I'll pass this time... but let me know if you need decoration for the Rome-themed thread. :-)

I'll give it a shot, and cast my vote for Rome over pirates.

Did you know?  The ancient Romans actually had a good, basic understanding of public health issues, and one big advantage of their use of aqueducts and drainage systems was that they avoided many of the diseases that arise from having stagnant water around.  You would be far more likely to die of cholera, for instance, in Victorian London than in ancient Rome.

The Romans also valued cleanliness, their lavish public baths being only the most noticeable example.  They also used soap, had public toilets with good drainage systems, and set up stepping stones for pedestrians, so they could cross muddy roads without getting their feet dirty.



Okay, I have five players for sure, and another one or two possibles, but there's always room for more.  :)

Okay.  I will be running both!  But for now, I'm just going to work on getting the pirate version started.  I have a couple of people interested in the Rome variation who can't play right away, so I'm going to hold off a little on that for now and work on setting that old pirate ship a-sailing.

So.  Is there anyone here willing to be a pirate first?  If there's enough interest, I'll gladly run both, but for now, please raise your hand if you'd like to try your hand at plundering the Caribbean.   ;D

Okay, that's six; plus I have another one or two possibles, so we're getting there.  And I'm glad to see a few new faces!  I'm terribly fond of all my regulars, of course, but it's nice to have some new people, too.   :D

Edit:  Fixed!  :)

Ooh, this looks like it might be enough people!  I'm off to dinner and some other fun things shortly, but when I return, I'll start setting up the game threads and see if we can't get this show on the road.  Thanks for the interest, everyone!  :)

The OOC thread is up for our pirate crew!  Feel free to chat amongst yourselves there while I work on the rest of the setup.  :)

No problem, maybe it was because I was quiet and watching the mayhem, I may have been forgotten in the throes of pirateness.
