When I click the My Setups link, I get a 403 error.

Ah. As a free member you can't create setups (or do any of those other things), so you shouldn't be given the option to. I've upgraded you so now you should be able to do all of those things.

Thanks.

I created a simple flavor -- is that now available to other mods for use?  I wrote some quick text for IC, VT, and MG so that it could be used for Less Pressure as a test.

I don't know how to set up a Less Pressure game, though, unless I have to build it myself?  Anyway, I didn't write lynch text or some of the other boxes, as I wasn't sure where it would go yet.  I think by using test games I was able to see that Role PMs use my flavor text now.  I will flesh it out, and try to make a few more generic flavors for you to have as standard selections if you like them.

I've done a second simple flavor set for the site.  There are now two:

"Witches in the Village"
"Inspector Spacetime"

There are role texts for the three roles needed for Less Pressure.  If these flavors are available to mods, one could attempt a game with them to see if they work.  In my test games, they appear to do fine.

Currently for Custom games you can only use your own setups and flavours.

Less Pressure is a Rated setup, which means it's always available to sign up for, and games start automatically (at the top of the hour) when there are enough confirmed signups. Currently we just need one new signup and the two unconfirmed signups to be confirmed, and it will start. I will be the mod for it, although I can add others to the list of mods and then one would be chosen at random.

You can write flavour for Rated setups, and then once approved by an admin, it will become available to be randomly selected when a game starts.

It looks like you've only created flavour for your custom setup. If you create some for Less Pressure, I can approve it and then it would be used when a Rated game starts.

For your custom setup, you can open a game and choose a flavour to be used for it.

I only found the “flavor” button from my custom setup area.

Where do I go to make the flavor for rated setups?  Is there a way to export the stuff I made for my custom setup?

Scroll down to the Flavors section on the Less Pressure page: https://www.lynchpool.com/games/less-pressure/flavors/

Hmm, it might work for me to just change the setup from yours to Less Pressure.

I've switched them to Less Pressure.

Note that a role flavor only counts for one player's role, so you'll need two to cover both ICs.
Also, the name (eg Councilman) is intended to be a character name. If you were looking to replace Innocent Child with Councilman then currently there's no way to do that, although I'm open to suggestions on how to do it without losing clarity.

Should I just make another Councilman entry?  Having two entries would cover the two roles, I assume.

I figure it read okay with Councilman replacing the name, so it is Councilman, an IC.  Flavor is councilman “player name” I suppose and role is still IC.

I would need two Inspectors too, I guess.  Will do it.

Added duplicate IC flavor to both simple flavors on the Less Pressure setup. 

It'd be neat if there was a way to just create a large flavor world with all the roles, then be able to apply them to any setup -- so I just create whatever other roles are needed for 2d3 and then the flavor would be available for both from a flavor pool.

Because I thought I couldn't have two separate.  I will fix that!

Although two Inspectors from different times worked fine.

Understandable.

I guess what I'm envisioning is a mod logs in, goes to start a new game, picks whatever standard, ranked setup they want.

On the setup page, the flavors... link is there.  When they click it, they see a list of provided flavors (these would be the things we include for mods who want something other than regular but don't want to write their own).  For example, Witches in the Village, Inspector Spacetime, Dracula's Castle, whatever...

They select whatever flavor they want and it is applied to their game.  Basically what happens now when you choose Less Pressure, but for all games all the time.

The "creative" work is making all the flavor text for all the roles.  The back-end work is allowing any game to pull from that pool of flavor text (I think).

As it is, if anyone runs Less Pressure with one of my flavors, let me know so I can see how it works.

Am I able to edit approved flavor?  Probably not, right?

I guess what I'm envisioning is a mod logs in, goes to start a new game, picks whatever standard, ranked setup they want.

Currently Ranked setups are only run automatically. If you want to mod a game, you need to create a Custom setup and open that (and you can create whatever Flavors and pick one to use). I could also add you to the list of mods for a Rated setup, and then you'd be the mod 1/n of the time that you're not playing. But you wouldn't get to pick which Flavor is used.

Having pre-made Flavors anyone can use is a great idea (I'm going to do something similar with setups: a list of "public" setups anyone can use). Obviously you'd still want it to be editable, but at least having a starting point would be really helpful I imagine.

Yours are the only ones that exist currently. When one more person signs up for Less Pressure, one of them (if they're approved) will be randomly selected for that game.

Thanks, updated one IC to Constable Reggie.

I am hopeful and happy to provide these flavors, as I find the writing fun.  I think generic flavors (Witches in the Village, for example) work well, and the random specific theme (Inspector Spacetime) could be fun for people who like those things.

Yours are the only ones that exist currently. When one more person signs up for Less Pressure, one of them (if they're approved) will be randomly selected for that game.

I see, so with auto-run rated games, the flavor is randomly assigned from the approved list.  That makes sense.  Is "no flavor" still a random option?
