fucking theme games and them expecting me to read goddamn flavour text

what do they think this is some kinda book club
Routine day with a dirt cheap brush
Then a week goes by and it goes untouched
Then two, then three, then a month
Then the rest of your life, you beat yourself up

I for some reason did not see it that way. To me, when I saw Burgis game finished, I was thinking 'aw a shame town lost' yet, did not realize the value you spoke of. You got to play and spend time with old and dear friends. I have been trying to improve my game, and have lost sight of people simply wanting to enjoy the game, which is fair.

This is a good idea! I'll see if I can get around to it - not any time soon. When I gather the data, I'll post it in the discussion thread.

Thank you.


In case this wasn't clear last time, this is me, as a Listmod, asking for this. This isn't the thread to prove why 3 games out of hundreds are ruining this site, and this isnt the thread to provide criticisms with the purpose of somehow proving these games shouldn't be played. Make a new thread for those discussions.

Thank you.

Not really any time soon, but maybe in June or July or August, I could mod a game for this group. If I were to, would ya'll have any preferences as far as setups go?

This. This right here.

The personal shit after that, not so much. I don't have a problem with Mulch the player or Mulch the human, but seriously dude, it's way beyond 'take a hint.' Your negativity towards this concept is unwelcome.

I'd imagine something simple would be most popular here.

@Korts

I don't think I'll be modding any time soon - likely not until next year -, but I did take a look back over my in-progress set-ups and decided that this one would be a good geriatric game. Posting this here in case anyone has any interest. Currently not accepting pre-ins, but if someone expresses interest, I can make a little note in this post. When I /in to Mod, I'll send anyone who's interested a PM and see if they'd like to reserve a slot for pre-in purposes.

The Cradle Will Fall

Image


Miracles born of misery. Tragedies bore of truths. From shattered shards, free yourself - crawling, bloody - from your caging cocoon and be reborn anew.

Chaos bore you from its heart. You and your siblings crawled from its cage of ribs… Crawling, bloody - do gods even bleed? What color does a god’s blood taste like? - trailing dying galaxies in your wake. Born with the power to create and destroy, you and your siblings slipped for Chaos’ cradle and crafted galaxies, worlds, civilizations, wars, life, and death.

Gods craft the rules of their world in the stars, in the marrow of their followers, and in the very cosmos they create. But even gods bend knee to one rule.

From chaos they were born and to chaos they will end.

The cage is open. A dried husk, waiting to be filled and bore anew. You must follow your destiny, but…

You may follow in the manner that you choose.


Information:

- Open Mountains Setup of 2 Mafia Goons versus 6 Vanilla Townies.
- Game is conditioned as nightless, as such, scum are not given a factional night kill.
- Prods are issued after a player has gone 36 hours without posting game relevant content in the thread.
- Players are only allowed to be prodded twice before being replaced.
- Original flavor - see example down below:

The Kindred: Chaos. The Primal regard it merely as a tool to their own ends; to create galaxies and grow fat from their feasts of worship. With glass tipped claws, they scraped chaos from its cradle and demanded that it dance to their frail whims, erecting a gilded cage from its very own ribs. The Primal forget one vital piece of history… Chaos gave birth to them. You will not abandon your family. Chaos from which you were born and chaos will return from whence it came.

The Primal: Chaos. Your beginning and your end. An end will come to all who begin. For beings like yourself, mortals address you and your kin as ‘gods’, that is the one rule that you must obey. The Kindred, or so they call themselves, believe that it is their profane right, alone, to be the ones who decide when the end will come. Arrogance in the highest order. They claim that you and your siblings conveniently forget the truth, but they could not be more wrong. You are family. You know your end is near, but it is not the Kindred’s right to be the executioners. It is not their right to stain their themselves with your blood. You know your fate and know that you must follow it, but you will follow it in the manner that you choose.

@RC - Currently undecided. Scum get to talk during all phases of the game, so I might consider making it nightless.

ftr if you make it not nightless the chances of town winning are extremely extremely low

make it nightless nad the game is reasonably balanced.

I would also consider /inning if it was nightless

After reading this, I will update that post and make the game nightless.

@RC - Would you like me to make a little note of your interest?
