Just recently I had an idea for a mafia game that I would really like to do, but I'm afraid it might not go over well here. Essentially, it would be a game where each player is an emotion, a fragmented piece of a single person's psyche. Some feelings would desire unity, feelings such as hope, love, and kindness. Others would be decisive emotions, bent on overcoming this person's mind, throwing him into a state of self-loathing, regret, and anger. Everyday, his emotions war amongst each other, seeking dominance over his mind. At night, when he sleeps, his subconscious takes over and his feelings run wild without control. He awakes the next morning with only memories of visions and dreams from the night before.
I talked to a friend of mine about this and he said I should turn this into a short story or a novel rather than a mafia game, but I disagree. Part of the intrigue with this is that the outcome is out of my control, just as the feelings in the main character's mind are out of his control.
The problem I see with this game is that it would be dark... depressingly dark... Since this forum usually is pretty light-hearted, I'm not too sure how many people would enjoy playing this game. Let me know what you guys think about it all. If enough people are interested, then I will start working on this. If not, then perhaps I will try my hand at writing out a story.
If I wasn't lazy, I would sig that
