I would actually like to suggest a fantasy/generic medieval castle/palace theme for a future game. :-) The backdrop would be, perhaps, similar to an uprising in which all the upper echelons of the ruling council / ruling regime must be assassinated.

Thus, for some suggested roles:
King/Queen = the voted tiebreaking role
Rebel Faction (Rebels) = the "mafia" members who are trying to kill off everyone else
Weaponsmaster or Healer= the healer, or "nurse" who can protect someone during the night
Historian/s = the seer, oracle, or "cop" players; the person who can uncover the identities of others
Council Members = general players, or "civilians" / "citizens"

Since the new subforum seems to have attracted some fresh interest (yay!), I'm thinking I'll start up another game in a week or so as well, to let some of the new blood play.  There seems to be more than enough to start a second game now, so I might as well strike while the iron is hot, as they say.  :)

So I'm looking for the next theme, and I need ideas and votes!  Options include, but are certainly not limited to:

  • Medieval fantasy (Caeli's suggestion above)
  • Bootleggers (1920's rum runners)
  • Pirates (Yarr!)
  • Roses vs. Thorns
  • Robin Hood
  • Werecreatures other than wolves
  • Ancient times -- Rome, Egypt, etc.

PM or post votes, suggestions, comments, etc.  :)

What about a post-apocalyptic version?  It could have a few different variations.  Zombie invasion, volcanic eruption, meteor strike, nuclear holocaust, etc.

Roles could be:

Survivors = Peasants
Doctor = Healer
Prophet = Seer (you know those people who are always "The end is nigh!"  Well, what if one actually was right...and survived :P )
Soldier = Guardian
Crazed Survivor/Traitor = werewolf/conspirator/ traitor etc.  (You know those people who crack under the pressure of the situation or have the fleeting idea that they would be better off alone without the rest of the people to survive)

It looks interesting, though I have little idea as to how to play this game. Anyone care to hold my hand through this? ^^;;

Is it too late to join?  ???

Well, the alien variation of the game is full, and will be starting shortly.  I will, however, start up a version with another setting a week or so after that one gets underway, most likely the medieval theme, so it isn't too late to join that one if you'd like.  :)

Like SleepyWei, I have little idea as to how the game is played, and will thusly most likely require some guidance. However, I would like to be signed on for the next game if at all possible.

Wikipedia gives a relatively good explanation of how the game works, and what the basic roles and outcomes of the game are.

*nods*  Yes, that article gives a good general overview.  I like to shake things up with the different themes, but the basics are always the same.  There are lots of special roles listed there, and I usually only use a few -- the newest game has four special roles, which is the most I've used yet -- but I tend to base those on the theme.  If something fits in well with the theme (like the new Brood Alien/Alpha I'm trying out), then I'll probably add it in.  :)

If this interest thread is only for the current game, then I am out of luck.

But mark me interested for the next Valerian production.

This is for future games.  :)   And also suggestions for themes for future games.  The current Faculty-inspired alien version was Doomsday's idea, and Caeli's medieval theme will probably be the next one I'll start, if that interests you.

Just for the record, I think Ryven's post-apocalyptic zombie idea sounds like a lot of fun XD

Another idea I had was set around the theme of the Greek gods of Mount Olympus.   The Hellenic gods and goddesses are lounging around their divine temples, feasting on grapes and ambrosia and enjoying the company of vestal virgins (gender of vestal virgins, of course, depending on the god or goddess in question), when--oh, noes! the almighty Zeus has been struck down!  It turns out that a few gods, however, are not happy with playing second fiddle to the God of the Heavens, and have formed a secret fraternity called the Order of Othrys (named after Mount Othrys, the barren peak from which the Titans were said to rule).  The Order intends to free the imprisoned Titans and expel the rest of the Olympians into Tartarus!

Potential roles:
Olympians = Roses.  Their goal is to identify the usupers and banish them to Hades for all time!
Order of Othyrs = Thorns.  Their goal is to depose the rest of the gods and rule Olympus!
Oracle at Delphi = Seer  (this god has, among his/her worshippers, an Oracle who can see into the future and reveal the loyalties of another god)
Bearer of the Aegis = Guardian (this god possesses the Aegis shield of Pallas Athena, who can prevent the Order from felling a god and casting him into Tartarus).
etc.

Well, I am in Mulholland High, but if there is room for me after people not currently playing get slots I'd be interested.

I have to say, all of these ideas sound interesting...

Also, Val, if you ever get enough interest in doing one with a more Oriental (for lack of better word) flavor, I'd be happy to help you run that. :-) A prince and a concubine plotting to take over the throne, advisors who all like arguing with each other more than they do actually advising, some warriors, princesses, and other princesses to mix it up...

I'd have to think more about how to do the roles, I just love how versatile forum Mafia is. ;D

Sure!  One of the best things about these themes as far as I'm concerned is that they're often an excuse to research and learn more things.   ;D

I plan to work up rules and roles for the medieval fantasy theme this weekend, so hopefully I can start up that one soon as well.  But keep the suggestions coming, everyone.  :)
