DESIGNER MAFIA


Welcome to Designer Mafia! We were just too lazy to come up with a good theme so we decided to let you pick the roles for the game.

Important Rules Specific to this game
Everyone who signs up needs to create a pro-town and anti-town role to be played by another player and PM me with the two roles within 48 hours of signing up. What me and Nimon will then do is pick one designed role from each player and assign it to another player. We will try to make the game as balanced as possible and you can expect some of the roles you design to be tweaked for balancing purposes.

Your role needs to be 3 things:
  1. Original. We don't want normal generic roles that are present in every game. Be creative.
  2. Not too weak. So no vanilla townie/mafia roles.
  3. Not too strong. Don't create roles which will lead to definite wins (remember the role you design is not for you but for someone else).
Try to come up with fun, strange, complex roles and if you think the role you design is a little overpowered then just send it anyway. We will decide if it's too strong, and if so we might edit your designed role to make it more balanced. Remember to write your role the way a mod would write one. You can also include things in the role that should be known by the mod but not by the player (a basic example of this would be an insane cop). Give your roles both a name and a role name (a basic example would be: Wolverine / Vigilante). The roles don't need to be very descriptive but you can make them descriptive if you want.


Given the nature of this game, we would like to request that you have played at least one mafia game beforehand and understand fully the nature (and complexities) of the game before signing up. The roles in this game will likely be very complex and coming up with a complex role is difficult. However if you really want to play and you can show that you understand the game and the roles you design are good ones then we will let you play.


If you want some inspiration or ideas as to the type of roles we expect then look at the roles of the original Designer Mafia game (scroll down to replies 286-288) or the roles of mafiascum's Designer Mafia game hosted by UT's very own Flying Dutchman.


We are looking for ideally 20 players but we can be flexible with this. Days will last around 72-96 and nights will last no longer than 48 hours. We will probably be a little flexible with the day length.

I think everyone should know the general rules so I won't post them here but a very important one is:
Never, ever quote (or appear to quote) any part of any PM that you recieve from me or Nimon. If you do this you will be modkilled.

Keep in mind that if you feel unsure about particular basics about Mafia, you shouldn't sign up for this game, as it's very likely going to get very complex. A good way to learn is to watch the people who know it best in action

Oh, and people, please be creative!

I would like to join, but it would be my first mafia So I'm not sure this would be a good one to start at? Not sure if I'm capable to make up any roles. Tho I've followed some of the mafia games in here lately so..

*edit*

nevermind, reading Nimon's post now, I won't join..

I wish that I weren't going away for the next few weeks -- I'd love to play this. Put me down for a replacement if you still need them after August 4th

I'll sign up as a spectator.

I am not feeling too inspired at the moment to think of something.

You know you can't leave me out

I'll come up with something bizarre for all y'all to use.

So we can give them thematic names? Like, you mentioned, Wolverine from X-Men?

I'm in, sounds like lots of fun!

I have a question though: is this going to be themed in any way, or all-open?

I have to say I'd love to have a theme, so you have a grasp of something. Not a theme that comes with names though, but something like "Midieval Times" or "New York City" might help everyone's creative juices to start flowing.
I'll have something either way though, don't worry

You make up a role and send it in. Then the mods will distribute out all the roles they get. So you'll get a role someone else made up.

Man. Those are some really interesting roles.

I change my mind. I am in. I just got an inspiration from the land of horned helmets.

There's no specific theme. So, basically, you can do whatever you want so long as your role is neither too overpowered nor underpowered.

Also, about the originality-rule, it doesn't mean that you can't do anything you've remotly seen before like spy or reporter, just not the very basic roles we usually have here.

I'm in!

Damn do I have some good ideas.

I am the darkness in your life, I am the light
I am the end of your tunnel, I am the beginning of your future
I am the end, your end. I am the path to your salvation.

Your bane, or your hope. You decide.
