Hahaha I didn't even think about the Grimm game! I'm sure that will be awesome Arch.

I may eventually try hosting a game but I'd like to get my feet somewhat wetter in playing the game first.

I was about to freak out about Walrus and Archetype being brothers, but then I re-read the sentence

Anyone love Dune as much as me?  I am designing Dune Mafia.

As a spoiler, I'll mention that the game will take place in the days and nights immediately following the successful Harkonnen sneak attack on the Atreides in Arrakeen.  There will be a lot of flavor text, which I will spend too much time crafting, given how little you all will actually read.  I have some new mechanics in the works which will force this into the RMM/non-stat queue, but I think you will all dig it.  Remember:

Bless the Maker and all His Water. Bless the coming and going of Him, May His passing cleanse the world. May He keep the world for his people.

It'll serve you well in the game.

Go ahead and remove Avalon mafia from the list, I don't really feel like running it/it's worth running any more.

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

The first draft of my "Super Mario Bros" setup is done. It's a mix of JK9++ and C9++ and offers similar variability, but without all that letter rolling. And best of all, it actually works! If you want to take a look at it, let me know. It's Semi-open, so you'll still be able to play if you like it enough.

Also, I had an idea for a prisoner's dilemma-ish mechanic for a Normal Game and thought I'd run it by you all.

Basically, each night each Town power role has the option to Roleblock themselves. If, by the end of the night, no Town PR has roleblocked themselves, ALL Town power roles will be roleblocked. So far I've adapted a couple of common roles to work well with this mechanic by not receiving results from PRs/PRs not knowing whether they got Roleblocked or something else happened instead.

Thoughts?

Has potential I think... Kinda like Switch Mafia but with town causing the switches? Would there be a way for that to work for mafia as well? Night talk might make that difficult though

Yeah a bit similar. Mafia aren't involved at all with the Roleblocking.

I have some ideas for a Lost-themed RMM game, but as I never modded before, I would like for some more experienced mod to look over the setup and maybe help me out with the modding.

I'm sure someone can check it out.

I'd suggest modding a normal set up for your first time, though.  And maybe back-up mod once, too.  It's great practice.

Definitely agree with ash.  Seeing how a normal game pans out from the mod's perspective can only help you better design and mod the Role Madness game you have in mind.

Okay then, let's do it that way. I'd like a spot in the Standard Games queue. I've looked through the mafiascum Open Setups, and this one sounds like fun.

I'm also willing to be a back-up mod for some game, in case anyone needs one.

That IS a fun setup.  yuma ran it once before - check his Casino Helsinki game - but that's no reason why we can't run it again!  Who knows, maybe this time ash and I won't mutually self-destruct all over each other!  :D

(But in all seriousness, that game was clearly won by ehunt, in one of the most effective mafia showings I've ever seen.  Man.  I miss ehunt.  We need us some kickball.)

It is a great setup. Balance concerns exist a bit as mafia or town can end up vastly overpowered if the bidding process swings one way or the other... but people gotta be smart with the bidding.

I would play it for sure.

Okay, mail-mi should start thinking about his next BM game.

Anyone seen raerae lately?  I PMed her about her game, but no response.  Assuming it is invented, she should open for sign-ups.

Faust is added to the queue with Pick Your Power.

BM15 is open for signups. Will not start until after BM14 is done.

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

I guess you would be the person to talk to her. I wasn't sure you were around either... One or both of you interested in Mafia and the Chocolate Factory? It should be a hoot and a holler!
