1783 was a year of change for New York and the rest of the 13 colonies. The victory at Yorktown in 1781 had broken the back of the British war effort and a sort of peace had settled across the soon to be free states. However, American POWs still rotted on prison ships in Wallabout Bay. Those still alive would be free by the end of the year due to the Treaty of Paris and as their captors withdrew, the victorious General Washington (having learned much since starting the first truly world wide war as a young major) entered the city to the cheers of an ecstatic crowd. Change and hope were in the air as the colonists were free to govern themselves. However, the complications of the dual sins of slavery and genocide left a foul taste for those who had concerns for such things.

Welcome to NYC 1783
If you'd like to play, please PM me with your role flavor and post in the thread to sign up, keeping in mind that your chosen flavor role must somehow make sense for New York City in 1783. The more interesting and evocative your submitted flavor is, the more interesting mechanical role you'll get. A previous game in this series involved mod enforced PRs, depending on what I get as roles this one may or may not. Due to the effort involved with designing and balancing CYORs, this will likely not open for several days. Additionally, I can't promise this will be balanced, but I'll do my best.


Rules:
The town wins when they have removed all threats.
The mafia win when they have unassailable control of the vote.
Third parties win when ???.

All roles have a type associated with them, the type determines what effect some actions will have on them.

Flips will look like this:
wins32767, Ethan Allen (Drunken Captian), Person, Town has died in the night!

Other than this post, all mechanics or rules are posted in bold, all flavor in italics.

Fear is the glue that holds society together. It's what makes people suppress their worst impulses. Fear is power.

And at the end of fear, oblivion.

I played as a Young Rudy Giuliani. It wasn't that great a character to stay in character with.

Hopefully this game should be more fun for me!

I did pick out JakeP and merk as scum in the first game though, so apparently I was good at mafia once.

I was cocaine in the original one.

I really want to do this one too but that would mean THREE games at once and I start school Friday so it's probably a bad idea.

You have to open on Thursday so I can spend the weekend pretending like I got you drunk and you let slip who the Scum are.

I haven't decided yet. I just got my copy in of OCS for beginners, but I'm also planning on bringing Angola and Dominant Species. You have anything you need playtesters for?

I would play Angola! again for sure (probably my favorite long, serious wargame that I've played to date), and would be happy to be introduced to OCS.

You need to play Brass, so we'll find three-ish hours sometime over the weekend for that. (Including teaching... it's not a 3 hour game)

For the longest time, my family thought we were descended from folks that came across on the Mayflower. I found out last year doing genealogy that no, we were descended from the younger brother of a guy on the Mayflower and who happened to be the first person convicted of embezzling government funds in the New World.
