    Default Interest Gauge: The Time of Troubles (running before GH's game)

    So I've had this idea running around my head for a while. I tried one version on my other forum, and it went ok, but I've since improved it.
    Basics:
    * No vanilla roles
    * Every player has multiple powers, all are single use.
    * Tradeoff's. Players will be unable to use all powers, using one will cost another in a (semi) random method.
    * No high powers like Cop/Vig/Dr/Etc.
    * Set in the Forgotten Realms, during the Time of Troubles.

    What else I do will largely be dependent upon the number of players that sign up. I'm looking to have the game solidified by Wednesday the 18th, and start the previous week. It will be reviewed by a few different people, none of whom will play.

    This isn't a signup thread, but the game will happen as long as I get enough people. This is just to gauge interest so I can work on some of the internal parts that are numbers dependent.

    Sub for now, subject to change (probably for the positive if so). I'll let you know ASAP.

    I'm signed up for a game already that week, but might consider playing this one instead. Not sure.

    Based on the limited level of interest I'm guessing it's not starting all that soon. I'll finish setup and vet it, then put up a poll to see when is best to start it.

    I'm a sucker for non-vanillagers games so I'm interested for sure but can't promise anything.

    games with no vanillas are not my forte, so I'd sit it out. But, if you find yourself needing a sub player after the game starts, ping me and I'll see if I'm available.

    Whaaaa!? How can you prefer vanilla games? It's like saying your favourite ice-cream taste is in fact vanilla! You cray-cray..

    The vanilla villager imo is a key aspect of games

    It sets an expectation and gives the village at least SOME level of ability to ascertain certain aspects of the inner workings of the game

    Non vanillas tend to highlight the wifom aspect of the night phase

    My favorite icecream flavor IS vanilla. What's wrong with that? Setup is complete, going through some reviews. Will post a signup thread in near future.

    Indeed. Chocolate ice-cream is the best ice-cream.

    If anyone is still on the edge of committing (although I understand that this isn't the signup thread proper) let me just say that Jabbz writes excellent flavour, if you are into that. I really enjoyed his post depicting my first victory in my first game of mafia, for example. http://www.realmsbeyond.net/forums/s...d=8248&page=96

    Sorry for the delay, ran into some balance issues, working on cleaning those up. Just wanted to give an update.

    Vanilla is the best, because you can have endless topping options :P

    Chocolate doesn't need a topping.

    Ice cream derails are the best derails.
