I'm going to try and put together a series of doing past games again...again. All games will be exactly as they were before except they will all be slow games - i.e. there will be a full day for day phase, and a full day for lynch phase. Also, all with PM privileges will only be able to PM at night. This makes it easier for me to do, and it will be easier for others to particpate amidst the ton of games that go one at each given time. Also, lynch time and night results will be at 5:00 or 6:00, although I won't have it posted until around 8:00.

There's only one thing left to do. Give me your choices for games to be run again. PM me or post it. Some games cannot be run again, keep in mind. These include games that had the element of surprise (i.e. River's Edge) or games that at present have sequels that are seeking to improve on the original models (i.e. Bewitched, House on Demon Hill).

My list of possibilities so far (in order):
Star Wars
Disco Inferno
Clan Wars
PTPer's Lord of the Rings
Contagious
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Land of Forgotten Memories
In the Court of the King

If you decide to rerun Disco Inferno, it would need 2 rules changes. One, the chance of a minor role being duplicated needs to be increased. The point of allowing duplicate roles was so the wolves could bluff convincingly. But, I inadvertantly used a system that resulted in an extremely low chance (less than 1%) of a duplicate role actually happening. I think it should be more in the vicinity of 50%.

Two, the Movie Star role was probably too powerful. He should be able to get an extra vote OR break ties, but not both. Otherwise, it's like getting 2 extra votes. I had thought it would be "self-balancing" in that the other players would lynch him if he was perceived as too powerful, but with the extra voting power, he proved to be unlynchable.

Sounds good. Will do. Anyone else who modded one of the previous games feel free to do the same as Rubric and propose amendments.

I must admit a clan war or a chaos spawn thingy would probably hook me.

Disco Inferno for me too. for better or worse, it was much of the inspiration for my LotR game. I'd love to get another chance and just vote the movie star off right away just to get it done with
