Working copy of Rules and Roles for JLU2: Of Magic and Men.  Note that now most of the roles have some sort of choice in their action, to make the game more involved and interesting.  Comments welcome!  Also taking reservations.  Sign-ups will probably go up in ~2 weeks and game will begin the first week of September, hopefully.

Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

Some of what makes me me is real, some of what makes me me is imaginary...I guess I'm just complex. ;P

Sounds awesome, Y-San! Three questions though:

1. For Ares's ability, does the player whose vote he redirected know? Does everyone else know?

2. For Martian Manhunter's second ability, does he only know what players acted, or does he also know what they did? Also, how are redirects/manipulatations handled? For example, say A redirected B's action to C, and Martian Manhunter spied on C. Does he know anything about A? Ate there any actions that he will not know about? Such as information roles (like Black Canary's echolocation)?

3. As I understand, Felix Faust's ability is to either RID manipulate a dead player, or to ask whether any one player is Man or Magic. Did I understand that correctly?

Thanks!

P.S. Sorry, I can't use color, I'm on a phone

1)  Nope, no one knows except Ares and, of course, the other villains by proxy ;).

2)  He sees which players acted on his target, including information roles.  In your example he would be informed "Player B acted on your target".  He will not see non-targeted actions (i.e. Wonder Woman's ability or Zatanna's undo) or Day actions (i.e. Flash's message or Ares's ability).  Also, dead players can't be acted on, so he wouldn't see Faust's zombie manipulate.

3)  Yep, basically.  I like to call it the "zombie manipulate" ;).  It was originally intended to allow one member of the mafia to take over another important mafia role, but I decided to beef the mafia up in this game so I made it so that he can manipulate any player he knows the RID of, except for Amazo and Hawkgirl.  Since dead players can't be acted upon unless otherwise specified, the zombie player is not subject to being blocked or redirected or a competing manipulate, or I guess the undo, for that matter.

 

Don't worry about the color here, this is just a preview thread.  And keep the questions coming, I'm sure with so many action choices are like a number of possible interactions I haven't considered yet ^_^.

Just a random something to throw out there, how would you guys feel about a mafia based on one of:

 

The Xanth series?

 

The Harry Potter series?

 

Lord of the Rings, possibly including The Hobbit?

 

 

(I like books  ;))

If anyone is still up for mafia, working on this:

 

Spoiler for Suicide Squad Mafia

 

9 Players, 6 innocents, 3 mafia/independent with individual cyclic win conditions, very rough draft (I watched Assault on Arkham and just had to make it ;P).
