A group of soldiers (chess pieces) are sick and tired of fighting their kings' battles for them so they've gone rogue. They have formed a vicious militia that intercepts the movements of kings and fights them in order to capture and imprison as many kings as possible for their sadistic revenge plan: a gladiator-style competition where the captured kings are forced to fight each other to the death.
King Hector has sent out a group of his most loyal soldiers to stop the rogues once and for all. Their orders are simple: no rogue survives.
This is my first time hosting any mafia game and the setup will be experimental but I hope it will be a lot of fun.
I will take any odd player count with a minimum of 9. I can start it as soon as we fill or after the hobbit game ends (it's still in the sign up stage) I leave the choice to the players.
sounds interesting! im in, but since its your first game and the set up is unconventional, could you please seek the advice of one or two experienced game masters so the balance is not loop sided? pretty please? i hate fighting battles with 0 winning chances ^^
Role PMs have been sent out. Please confirm you have received and understood your role here in this thread.
I have added two rules to the first post:
10. The game will start with Day 1. Day phases will have no deadlines, but one may be introduced if enough players ask for it or if I deem it necessary. Night phases will last 48 hours (unless there are special circumstances that warrant an extended night phase)
11. Under very specific situations where it becomes apparent to me that the game is broken in some way I may choose to make changes to someone's role, or influence the game in some way. This change may or may not be announced. However, this will only be a last resort thing. I do not expect we will need it.
King Hector and his soldiers leave the city walls in search of a good place to set-up camp and discuss their strategies for the hunt. Soon, they find the perfect spot protected from one side by a mountain and near a river and a forest. However, the rogues are one step ahead. Believing in hiding in plain-sight, they've infiltrated the camp and joined the soldiers. What they didn't know was that Hector is cunning and paranoid; camouflaging himself among the men and changing tents every so often. Who will prevail? Only time will tell.
Day 1 has begun.
With 9 alive, it takes 5 to lynch.
There is no deadline set but if 5 people request it or if I feel that the day is dragging I will add one.
