The Great Twist


I had one of those in the Mafia Disruption group.

-Beguiler: Target is hit by whatever would hit the Beguiler.

I wasn't paying attention
to what you just said.

Can you repeat yourself
in a more interesting way?

Thanks for the game, I'm impressed by how popular of a target I was on night 1

Oh okay.

If anyone has any suggestions for a role, any fun Mafia roles or townie disruption type roles would be good.

I'm not too sure if anyone would be particularly interested in a passive ability unless it's particularly exciting.
Passive abilities like letting someone give fake items to people, or send anonymous messages to other players, or post anonymous messages to everyone are fun ones, I think.

I also like roles that only activate when other players use a certain keyword.

Roll for initiative.

Yeah lightning rod/absorber is my favorite. I highly recommend it.

Role madness is my favorite to run.

As I mentioned earlier, I really don't like dice rolls in Mafia.

I have heard of a role once, called Vanilla town. It really helps to balance a game

Opop mentioned it because you said nexus was beguiler, which it ain't.

I don't like randomness personally because there is no way to figure things out.

I try to remove dice rolls as much as I can in favor of players making the decisions. I currently don't know how I'm going to have the Mafia kill performed. As it was, every time a Mafia member was rollblocked, I rolled a 1/x chance that the Mafia kill fails. (x being the number of Mafia) Perhaps I'll have the Mafia decide which of their own they'll send for the kill. What do you guys think?
Even SC2-mafia has a member of the scumteam do the kill themselves (the godfather picks the killer and the target). "Collective mafia kill" is something I've only seen in the twoplustwo mafia community, but nobody does it on SA.

edit; Absorber was a really cool role, haven't seen that before.

Yeah I probably won't. Nothing personal at all, I just prefer a far more vanilla game, though I think I am in the minority in that regard

look-
a post,


the thing is role crazy games where everyone has a role has vanillas two, its just you know not actually vanilla roles, but gimmicky roles that aren't as powerful as the actual power roles in that game.
