@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...

Basically you take a group of people and then secretly pick 2/3/4/etc. depending on the rules of them to be mobsters/werewolves/killers/whatever, and then the groups starts arguing about who they might be. Every so often there's a vote about who the group should kill. If the group kills all the mobsters/werewolves/killers/whatever then they win, if the number of mobsters/werewolves/killers/whatever is equal to the villagers, they win.

Well it might not happen unless we can get about 8 people. Little hard to play with less than that

I don't really get it. Lol Might be easier if I watched you guys play for a bit. Lol

 

Here, I'll break it down!

 

People are randomly given special roles at the start of the game. In the most basic variation, you might have a detective, doctor, and multiple mafia members. Everyone who doesn't get one of these roles is a plain villager. Your role is not known by anyone else, except the mafia members who know who each other are at the start.

 

During each day period, everyone publicly votes on one person who they suspect to be a mafia member. Once everyone has a vote in, the person with the most votes is killed, and their role is revealed. After the execution happens, during the night, the mafia votes privately on one villager to kill. However, the doctor gets to select one person per night whose life will be saved if they are the mafia's target. In addition, the detective gets to learn the role of one person that they select per night. However, they have to be careful about what to do with that information if they find it, because publicly announcing that someone is a mafia member will probably get them killed. The game ends as a villager win if all mafia members die, or as a mafia win if the number of mafia members and non-mafia members becomes equal at any time.

 

The game is about trust and deception, basically. Private conversation between players is what makes things interesting, especially when you're doing the variant where the mafia doesn't know who each other are at the start. When push comes to shove, if you manage your suspicion well and build good alliances, you'll be fine. Otherwise, well... RIP.

 

Side note, what special roles are you planning to include, Zac?

I hadn't actually thought about it yet. The basic roles are fine with me, but I won't say no to adding extra stuff if we get enough people. Or if it's a relatively small group everyone can have a special ability to make things more interesting.

Edit:if that's the case we'll have to decide on a theme so I know what to base the abilities on.

Seems there was a general lack of interest in this, so I'ma just throw out some theme ideas to draw attention to it.

FE themed: assassins instead of Mafia, instead of villagers we have FE classes with abilities relating to the class. Example: cleric can protect one person every night, tactician can choose a single person and find clues to their identity, etc.

Police station: honest cops and crooked cops. I could work out some abilities for this later, but nothing comes to mind atm.

Aliens: I'm thinking shapeshifters for the bad guys, and the people with special abilities will be like ambassadors to earth or something with everyone else being human(and thus having no abilities)

Ok back to try again. Got some roles worked out(basic ideas anyway, gonna have to work on it later since I basically just came up with stuff in about 3 minutes)

Bad guys(open to team name suggestions btw):
Deadeye-never misses his mark
Inquisitor-good at getting people to talk
Baron-leads with an iron fist

Neutral party:
Chameleon-changes shape at will
Earth dragon-powerful being set on destroying the universe

Good guys:
Priestess-provides divine protection
Holy paladin-deeply devoted to his priestess
Wild mage-wields powerful yet unpredictable magic
Silent mage-suppresses other abilities(couldn't think of a way to hint at this without just giving it away)
Tactician-good at reading people. Great leader.
Villager-nothing special?

Yes these only hint at the abilities, I didn't want to give away everything about the roles. Anyway I really hope this gets people interested.

Not bad at all, but I'm not sure that we'll get a high enough turnout to run most of these roles. I'd be all for it, of course, but eh.

I know, just throwing stuff out to get people interested. If at all possible I'd like to get enough for half of them. That would be enough for the game to be interesting and last long enough for people to enjoy it
