Superhero uPick Expression of Interest/Signup

Post by Supreme Overlord on Mon Apr 04, 2016 4:32 am

First of all, some assurances:
Vote counts.  I love writing vote counts.  You can expect much in the way of vote counts.
Deadlines.  I like the rolling deadlines idea.  Maybe '48 hours since last post, up to a maximum of 2 weeks'.  You will know when the deadline is, and it will be reasonable.
Prods.  Prods will not require requests.  I will prod early and often (within reason).

After that, well, activity is really up to you.


Theme:
I had no real ideas for a setup, but someone suggested superheroes (or villains; whatever).  I love superpowers, so let's roll with that.
I intend to run a 'uPick' setup.  That means I ask each player for a couple of suggestions on their character and role, then I craft the setup based on those ideas.  You get a character/role you want (within reason), I have plenty of ideas and flexibility to work with.
Example: You pick Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, and roles of bulletproof, jack-of-all-trades, and lie detector.  Then maybe someone else wants Superman, and I think bulletproof and lie detector are too broken in a small setup, so you might end up as Batman, Town Jack-of-all-Trades.

Mechanics:
Factional daytalk is almost a certainty.  I'm thinking of doing away with Nights all together - but I'm not sure if I'll be quite active enough to go entirely with Rapid Actions, so it might be that you can submit (and change) actions anytime during the Day, and then they all resolve at the lynch/deadline (lynches would still resolve first, so you can't use an action if you're already lynched).
I'm also considering incorporating Ultimates - powerful one-shot abilities that become available to use after a certain condition is met.  If I do use Ultimates, I may also include Renumerations - actions or abilities, usually negative, that are triggered when you use your Ultimate.


So, expressions of interest/signups here.  Also any questions/clarification.  Don't send me role ideas yet, but you can start thinking about them
Depending on how things go, I might be ready to take suggestions by the end of the week, and maybe start the game late weekend/next week.

These notes are slightly better worded, but I only found them after I'd written out the above:
Pregame, each player will give me three suggested characters and three suggested abilities. Using one of the characters and at least one of the abilities, I will craft a role for each player.

Each role will have at least one active or passive ability.

Factional abilities include but are not limited to Mafia/Serial Killer kills, Cult recruits, and Mafia/Mason private chat.

All non-town roles have Falseclaim abilities.

Each role will have an Ultimate, a powerful one-shot ability that becomes available to use after a certain condition is met. For example:
Your Ultimate is always active.
Your Ultimate activates on Day 2.
Your Ultimate activates when you are on the lynching bandwagon of a Mafia member.
Your Ultimate activates when you die.

Each role will have a Renumeration, an ability (usually a drawback) that activates when you use your Ultimate.

The standard factional win condition is: ‘You win when all other factions have left the game, or nothing can prevent the same.’

Never put off until tomorrow what you can avoid doing entirely.

That's 5 so far, then.
For transparency, I'd probably go with 7. I may ask for suggestions on Sunday if I have enough signups, with a tentative start date of next weekend.

This has not been forgotten; however, I won't go with only 5, so I think it's better to give it a little while so we don't have another lot of 'we'll all /in! ... then flake'.
