I can see ABSOLUTELY NOTHING wrong with this idea.

(p.s. the entire intro to this game is tempting me sorely to actually go buy Geneforge)

(p.p.s. and all the rest of Spiderweb's stuff)

(p.p.p.s. even the ones I own already)

(p.p.p.p.s. damnit)

i'm pretty sure you can get all five for something like $35 on steam.

(this mafia game takes place shortly before the events in geneforge 4, by the way.)

dark ages plus magic. there's some magical machinery in the games but it oughtn't make a difference in this game.

There are killer(s) and townspeople (and other roles, too), but the main point is that at night, the killer(s) kill people and the townspeople have to figure out who it is. If any of the killers are alive at the end of the game, they win. If the townspeople execute all the killers, they win. Nobody knows what anyone's role is until that person is dead or the game's over.

And the townspeople vote by day, and killers execute by night? And the killers probably use deception?

Well everyone votes by day, since everyone who isn't pretending to be a townsperson pretends to be. So yeah, killers use deception.

Ok, I'm confused. When I first read it I saw it as de_la_nae trying to kill TRVA and failing, dying in the attempt. Then a separate person came and killed TRVA. Did I get that right?

When in doubt, just kill them all and let Unicorn sort them out  :evil:

Trivia: The most famous version of this sentiment is actually somewhat of a misquote. The original version is something along the lines of "If we kill them, God will recognize those who are his among them."

Have the next Mafia game be about something non-human-like

Like everyone is fruits, and one morning they all wake up and OH GOD THE ORANGE HAS BEEN JUICED

((Aww bugger  :-D))

As the Sorceress feels the noose tighten, an epiphany dawns on her. Variables in her head float around, align themselves, they are now in a precise order leading to only one conclusion. Time seems to slow down, despite her body now dropping through the air unsupported and being gradually destroyed, neck first.

A future manifests.


Slightly amused by the cruel irony of fate that chose to finally bestow such knowledge upon her in the moment of her death, she looks closer. Then she tries to breathe a few words, realizing already that she probably will not be able to.

If her throat wasn't incapable of speech by now, and someone was standing close enough, they would hear:

Quote
I see...




only darkness...



before me...



Then she ceases to be.

Good job Team Rebel! Sorry I couldn't see you through to the end, though I like to think my final act helped save our plucky assassin (it probably didn't).

So shall we compare notes? I imagine Shapers had to kill/convert all non-Shaper-aligned, just like Rebels had to. But how did Trakovite and non-aligned players take the cup?

TRVA123 was the Shaper Leader, Cesium133 was the Shaper Infiltrator/Assassin, Game and Watch Forever was their Guardian, and TheEvilDog was the Shaper Villager.

We uh...we sort of co-opted TED there at the end. He can tell you more about that stuff though.
