After vidae's current game is over (and after the draft,) I will be running a Final Fantasy themed Mafia game. I have 30 slots to fill and I'm going to be a little ambitious/creative with the game itself. Everything is written and ready to go following the draft.

I've talked to IBC and Grizz, and there is going to be a bit of a break before they start the Frieza game, so there's no need to worry about interference.

As I said, there are 30 spots to fill. I've already offered a few spots to some guys I knew were big Final Fantasy fans as well as some guys who've missed out on getting into the last couple of games.

If you're interested in playing, just say so in this thread. I'll keep a running list of names in this post so I don't miss anyone. If you've signed up but I didn't list your name, let me know.

If we get more than 30 sign ups, I'll let in some veteran players who I know will contribute and then the rest of the spots will be filled at random.

Here is my running list:

(Guys I already offered spots to, just confirm in this thread if you want in for sure.)

Grizz

jvig

APS

I will need to reveal characters because it is a requirement for a few of them, but name dropping is expressly forbidden still.

I shall. Basically anything that would give away your character's name is going to be forbidden. If it's borderline, I'll privately issue a warning. Outright naming or giving really strong hints will get you mod-killed.

I tried to incorporate some different elements. Then I went so far outside the box that I couldn't even see the box anymore so I decided to reel it in a bit to within a reasonable distance of the box since it's my first one.

However, I have a bunch of ideas for future ones if this works out.

Awesome. Always love your write ups (Emmit Smith baby) and while your reeled it in for this one and it should be awesome I look forward to see you go way outside the box for the next one.

What is everyone's preferred method of handling mafia meetings? Do I just let them PM eachother or what?

And do I let them know who the other mafia members are in their role PM? Like, just list their usernames?

When i was mafia we had like 7 guys so D got some chatroom on another site an we used that.

Yeah, it listed the usernames of the other mafia members.

I'd prefer they not do that...it would only tarnish the memory of a fantastic game. If ALL they did was remake the exact same game just with improved graphics, I'd be like sure...go for it.

But you know they'd try to "update" other things and ruin it all.

Except that instead of making strong, interesting female characters, they took Yuna, Rikku and a stereotypical goth and turned them all into gigantic pop whores. (Which makes especially no sense for Yuna, who was a decent character and the opposite of an idiotic attention ***** in FFX.)

I'm sure many creepy Japanese fan boys used it for fapping. Maybe that's why it exists.

I think X-2 did a lot of things right. It needed better characters and should have brought back the battle/level up system from FFX but I do like the discontinuous story line and the optional quests.

Ok so here is my official response that I want in to this. When does it start? I am mobbed with work for the next week or two but most of it will consist of me being on my laptop so that does not mean I will not be active, just less active than I was for the last two games (but much more so than the people like goose and cmd (no offense haha) from the DBZ game). So as long as that is ok, I am on board.

I shall. Basically anything that would give away your character's name is going to be forbidden. If it's borderline, I'll privately issue a warning. Outright naming or giving really strong hints will get you mod-killed.

I'm not sure this is necessary. If you're doing from VII to XII like you had said, there would be the possibility of about 40 (more if Tactics/others is included) playable characters, 20+ important friendly NPCs, 20+ summons... Massive role-claim ended up breaking the Firefly game because the show had 10 important characters and ALL of them were in a 20 player game. I don't see this happening in this one : there's too many to chose from. Plus, not permitting players to claim their role takes a very interesting part out of the game, imo.

BeerBaron
04-25-2012, 09:05 AM
You can ROLE claim to you hearts content...you take the risks on when you do that. I tried to bend the traditional mafia game roles to fit FF as best I could (mostly...some are very bent,) so figuring out the character based only on that will be tricky. Just no saying your character's name or hinting at it in any way.
