Sign-ups and Pre-game:

Setup Info

So here's how this works. This is a Semi-Open setup.

I've divided my Tarot deck into two piles, the Major and Minor Arcana. As seen below, I've assigned specific, fairly traditional Mafia roles to the Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana, however, have been assigned secret abilities that range from "Oh, that's new and interesting" to "What on Earth was that?" in power and strangeness. As figured out last game, all Major Arcana roles have death triggers, that are secret even to themselves. Some Major Arcana are town-aligned, some are Mafia, some are Werewolf, and some are other.

In order to keep the Major Arcana roles feeling appropriately special, I've separated them from the rest of the deck. For every seven players that join the game, one Major Arcana role is added to the setup. After that is done, I deal enough Tarot cards to give everyone a role. In a game in this size range, there will be exactly two Major Arcana.

Minor tweaking is done afterward to ensure some semblance of balance. It usually comes out pretty balanced, but sometimes there's six werewolves out of 16 players and that's just no good.

I'll follow because the last game was awesome, but I think this game is just too big for me.

Ditto, but more because I don't have time to obsessively read over lots of old posts.  Not that it stops most players. ;)

Vengeful Lightning Rod. 

I thought about making PGO Lightning Rod once.  Everyone targets you.  You kill everyone. :)

hey, want a true story from last game?

last time around, you were complaining mildly about always getting vanilla or worse roles. so when i was picking roles, i came to you, and drew VT. i felt a little bad, so i decided to give you another chance, and gave that role to the next player on the list (i think it was shraeye). then i drew again for you, and got lover--and you wound up being the only lover in the game. it was hilarious.

Making the most of a one-sided lover WAS a real challenge. It's hard knowing someone is so good inside, but that feeling isn't reciprocated. Still...

Even if I feel very busy, I must play.  Arcana I was my intro-game here and I loved it.  Sign me up for round 2.
