With Trigun being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably be murdalated.

I'd like to take one from 2013 or 2014. (I think 2013 is when I started.)

I'll go dig through my favorites from that time and see what will be good.

I've been contemplating a redux of Arcane (2013) but it would only work with people who didn't play in and haven't read the original. Wonder if it's been long enough that I could get seventeen new players.

Before my time! I don't know anything about it, so I'm definitely in. I think you could do it easily.

(I was considering hitting you up to see what the thoughts were on making Vostok an open set. The dead chat isn't around anymore.)

Yeah, I remember some discussion from the Vostok deadchat about modding the game to run with the mechanics open instead of hidden.

So the rule set for the Lord of the Rings Series I that LJ linked to up there seems to be MIA.

But there are 4 other LOR themed games that year to pick from. (Series V was hidden rules so I can't recreate it) So I'm setting up a poll to see which version people are most interested in trying again.

Werewolf: The Lord of the Rings -- Accepting Alternates-- Starts June 20 -- Roles given Sunday, Game starts monday Morning by Ptper
Werewolf: Lord of the Rings Part II - Player Roster Set, Accepting Alternates by Kimapesan
Werewolf: Lord of the Rings Part III - Helm's Deep - Starts August 18th by Kimapesan
Werewolf: The Lord of the Rings Part IV - The War of the Ring *SIGN UP HERE - 20 in, more may join if interested!* by Kimapesan

Poll
Which version of the LOR would you like to play?
  Your Answer   Vote Percent Vote Count
The Lord of the Rings by Ptper
0.0% 0
Lord of the Rings Part II by Kimapesan
28.6% 2
Lord of the Rings Part III - Helm's Deep by Kimapesan
71.4% 5
Lord of the Rings Part IV - The War of the Ring by Kimapesan
28.6% 2
Voters 7
This poll is now closed.   7 answers
Poll created by Melsana
Closes: Fri Nov 17, 2017 6:00 am


You have until this Friday to vote. At that time I'll pick the most popular role set and start a sign up thread on Monday. If there is a tie, then I'll pick which of the two I like the best.

I would consider re-running one of my previous games.

Indiana Jones (2007) probably.

Tombstone (2011)
Operation Hintre (2012)

would be the other possibles.

With Trigun being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably be murdalated.

If you guys are ok with it, I'm going to pencil you in for 2013 (sheep) and 2014 (Lemon)?

Sure, pencil me in. In case anyone missed it:

If you want to play in the Arcane redux, do not read the original.

Elftown also needs a "Do not read original" warning.

Sounds good.

I choose to redux "A Good Old Fashioned 35er".

Edit: Nothing sticks out to me as super interesting on a quick skim of 2014. (Trying to avoid too many "do not read if you want to play".) I might poke around and see if anything looks fun in the unclaimed earlier years.

Can I put a tentative hold on 2016? If someone has a game they really want to do they should take it but if not I'd like to do it!

Put it down as tentative, I'm willing to relinquish it to better options if they come up.

Two of my favorite WW games out of my 300 are

Star Wars: Clone Wars, 2007 and Missionary Zombie Wolves, 2013.

And not just because of my personal experience in them but because I found them interesting and fun with cool mechanics. The Clone Wars recruitment mechanic was really interesting. And in MZW the map and movement was fun, but I love how the item and item priority worked.

I would love for anyone new to experience the fun of these games.

I would love to play anything Star Wars themed. It's got my vote!

Can't speak to those two, but I know that I had an incredible amount of fun just re-reading Die Hard. Can't imagine the fun that went into playing it.

Thanks Ron. I assume you are speaking of the original RPish one that went forever and not the redone more WW oriented one?

Speaking of the second, less epic one, I remember using the "buy powers before game" mechanic. I really like the idea of customized setup by a team after role distrib and before game start. Starcraft the Game did this as well and I really liked it. I think some other games have done that to some degree and would like to see more of it.

We do have the materials. Looks like it could qualify as 2008, 2009 or 2010

I say we do it!
