Chat away!  The only rules are to remember that we're in a public section of the site, and not to give away anything as to roles.  Remember, the principal is watching you...

So is this a uniformed school or a non-uniformed school? :P

*laughs*  I was assuming non-uniformed, that being what I'm used to, but I guess that can be a topic to vote on before the game gets moving.

Seeing as how the roles haven't been assigned yet, this is the perfect time to create my Mulholland High persona.

I shall be Stud Beefcake, the testosterone-fueled, cerebrally-challenged quarterback of the Mulholland varsity football team.

And class is now in session.  Everyone should have their PM detailing their role.  If anyone has any questions, post them here or drop me a PM.  Now it's time to start the voting for Class President.  :)

So... why throw in a Brood Alien this time, Val? :D It seems like such an interesting addition, but to me it seems like the aliens might have an advantage O.o

Well, the numbers aren't exactly with the aliens, given that there are seven students this time around, plus the Hall Monitor, Peer Counselor, and my other new addition of Lab Geek.  So yes, the Brood Alien does give them a bit of an edge, but it seems like the Lab Geek, plus the number of students, should keep things even.

It was because of The Faculty movie that I added the Brood Alien in the first place -- the film has the alien leader disguised as a student, spying on the others as they try to fight off the aliens, and that leader could take over people.  Since it was so similar to the Alpha from the werewolf version, it seemed natural to try it out here.  :)

7 students in addition to 3 of them having extra abilities vs 3 pods with 1 ability, the advantage is definetly with the students.

Well, it shouldn't be too skewed in the students' favor, I hope -- according to the usual ratio for the game, a 12-player game should have 4 Mafia.  We have 14 players and 4 aliens, but that 12-4 rule doesn't take a brood alien into account.  It's very possible that soon we'll have 5 aliens and 14 players, which would give the aliens a definite advantage, at least as far as numbers go.

The Brood Alien/Alpha rule creates some extra uncertainty for the students/villagers as well, which can help with the paranoia factor.  Heh.  But some of it always comes down to sheer luck.  :)

If anyone's curious, the general rules for the game suggest the following:

3 players  - 1 Mafia
6 players  - 2 Mafia
9 players  - 3 Mafia
12 players - 4 Mafia
15 players - 5 Mafia

But adding any special role really shakes up the odds, and I don't have the necessary math skills to work all that out.  Heh.  Hopefully this shouldn't be too weighted in either direction, though.

Normal mafia games generally have the same 'good guy' roles, but played in real life, the civilians have a distinct advantage because you can use a combination of body language and voice/words/other subtle things to pick out who the mafia members are. In forum Mafia, without body language, eye contact, vocal persuasion, and lack of real-time, it's much more evened out.

Plus, the Brood Alien has such a cool power. >_>;

Oh, shush.  Heh.

Anyway, I'm tweaking things just a touch -- today will be a non-lynch day, so everyone can just play around with their high-school roles if you like.  This coming night, the hall monitor can protect someone, the aliens can try to eliminate someone, and the peer counselor can peer.  ;)  So if those people could get me their choices via PM as soon as they can, that would be excellent.

And everybody have fun!  Which should be easier when you don't have to worry about getting lynched, at least for now...

You know, I always say it when we play Mafia games in RL, but...

It always sucks to be the first lynched. >_>

But yes, have fun. :-) I look forward to seeing who wins this round...

Well, somebody's got to get the idea of lynching started so I'm taking up the role of crazy paranoid guy.
