You've survived the superflu; can you now survive the evil menace from the west?

How is it a werewolf adaptation of this has never been made? Seems like such a natural. Or has no one read it?

(I hadn't read much King until this past November when I picked up The Gunslinger. So after reading the entire Dark Tower series, I thought I'd tackle what many consider his best work, The Stand. A pretty impressive read, with great characterizations and a grim message.)


So ...

July 13 (moved back again).
A game for 25-29 brave souls.
Hidden roles (there will be some information at gamestart, or maybe later in this thread).
Lynch 4:00 pm BGG.
Night 5:00 pm BGG.
Knowledge of the book helpful (see, I'm giving you plenty of time to (re)read it).

A LudesFactor appearance is good for everyone, especially as a mod.

I ain't sorry and I ain't anybody's kid- hell, I'll sign up for this right now.

Re: Stephen King's THE STAND
Will having seen the TV miniseries suffice for background knowledge?

Would like to know a bit about the ruleset.

Thanks, good to have you aboard, Murph. I was thinking about you more than anyone else, as capturing some of the essence of The Stand with your flavor in some of your games.

All I know about the TV series is what I saw in a short YouTube video. I'd say there's a good deal of similarity. Having read the book is helpful, not essential.

Well, hidden roles, for one, so I can't say much ... pretty regular WereWolf with a few twists. I am not using the Cassy Physics system even though it seems apropos for this.

Bumping this. Can't play with just 10, and who's going to see it on page 2?

Re: Stephen King's THE STAND, July 6 - 18/25~29


If by chance this doesn't fill by the 4th or later in that week, I'll have to push it back to late July/early August. While I'm here with my notes, here are some rules ...

There will be an unlynchable (but certainly not invincible) Uber-evil.

There will be vote manipulation powers. Modified results will not be posted.

Toughs are not informed when toughness is lost.

Brutals may be used on anyone who voted on that person throughout the course of the game.

I almost did, but was scared off by the complexity and the realization I'd prolly screw it all up. I hope you get some joiners soon, I'm looking forward to reading it!
