For this game, I just want a nice, simple, villager role. That last game had a high degree of difficulty.

Bump. Rules updated in Post #1. Also, there is a title change to reflect the specific game content.

- Soothsayer: this person can review two statements as true/false over the course of the game. May only be used once every three days. GM note - I will be a stickler on what is legitimate use of this power. There is no reason for everyone to CYA with "I am not a necromancer" at the start of the game to avoid detection by Soothsayer
I don't understand why everyone won't need to say that.

Because I'm going to communicate pretty clearly with the soothsayer in terms of statements that are useable.

Also, remember that this is a Neutral role. It could be held by a necromancer to assist with finding other necromancers if I allowed it to be used in this fashion - and I don't necessarily want to make their decision process THAT easy.

But most importantly, I don't want the possible existence of this role to completely define conversation in the game.

Is there still regular voting? If so can't the Necromancers still end the game earlier then all the villagers (not neutrals) being dead?

Sure, but they have to figure out who is a necromancer to form their voting block, not kill each other early in the game, etc.

Another note on the voting - even if the Necromancers outnumber the Egyptians the game is not 100% up, depending on remaining roles. I won't drag the game out if there is mathematical elimination but there are certainly scenarios where the villagers could still win the game while being even in numbers or outnumbered at some point in time.

Nah, you probably don't have to worry much about dying first day in your first game unless you just don't show up We all pretty much usually just vote for Saldana anyways.

I don't think so .... which is why I've been tinkering with the game balance for the last week or so and why I may want to put in an update or two prior to the start of the game.

I'm hoping that starting out with this scenario gives all of the players a broader set of options on how to play the game, particularly in the early going. We'll see if that is how it ends up working ...

On more point of clarity from an earlier post:
Quote:

I just want to make sure that everyone understands that there are only two factions in this game: Egyptians vs Necromancers.

The roles are split across Egyptian, Neutral, and Necromancer. The "Neutral" roles could potentially be held by either an Egyptian or a Necromancer. The roles that are explicitly Egyptian will not be assigned to a Necromancer (and vice versa).

OK, player list updated. I think I'm going to cap it at 22 for now, although I'm still looking for alternates. With a game this big there is a very good chance of a player or two dropping out. Plus there are a couple of roles listed that call for a new player to come into the game (Avatar and Mummy) if they are invoked.

If anyone would prefer to play as one of these characters (no guarantee they are in the game, those choices will be made by Necromancer and Mystic) please let me know and I'll list you as an alternate. Those characters will likely be high risk/high reward propositions in terms of game impact.

dola, i was actually a little disappointed that didnt happen, as it would have been a fun mechanic to facilitate, and would have made for entertaining reading the next day as the jedi tried to figure out what the hell had happened.

Does this mean that after 2 years, I have to finally take Chubby off of my ignore list? He was the only person on it, so it was kind of a place of honor.
