    Default Basic 11

    11 player game. 2+ one possible mafia members

    50% of their being a seer.
    50% of being a baner
    50% of their being a mafia member who scries as a villiager.

    Is there any reason why Janis wants people in her cult? It seems to do absolutely nothing but possibly kill him...

    Janis is a her :-) She's only appeared in the comic once. http://www.giantitp.com/comics/erf0011.html

    Some interesting ideas here. But I'm not sure on the balance.

    Team Stanley = villagers (and noone knows eachother?)
    Team Ansom = wolves (all know eachother?)
    Team charlie (know eachother????)
    Goal is the standard one - remove the other side? (Thats not really that clear from the rules so far)

    Janis' role seems to be one of trust network builder. ie scry someone. If its a an enemy, you die, otherwise you can trust them. Could be really overpowered, or could be almost no effect, depending upon how you go. Basically russian roulette on the scry :-). Interesting twist.

    Not sure about the "Uncroaked" What is their purpose?
    Do their voting powers change? Given the track record for baners, I'd say it is quite unlikely that anyone would become "uncroaked". And in the case of a successful "bane/uncroak" they will probably just be targeted by the arkenpliers the next night. I quite like the concept, but I think it needs work.

    Team stanley: starts with at least 3 scries.
    Arkenhammer, lookamancer, Janis plus Bogroll's Parson/Stanley scry
    Team Anson: one scry
    Team Charlie: Scry + item scry

    Personally I think there are too many scry abilities, and no Fool ability to balance it. Also I think too many people know eachother.
    Stanley knows both his side and Charlies? Less people to take out on the other side.
    It could potentially end up just like the recent Girl genius game did - finished after 2-3 days.

    Just some thoughts anyway.

    Different idea:

    You sign up.
    You then PM your role name.
    Then I send you your role.

    I think you have to make more advertising for your game Demonking I didin't even know you had started a game.
    Anyway since it seems short enough I'm in.

    I have some suggestions how you could get more players to the game:

    First of all is this game based on Erfworld?
    If so why is it called Basic 11? that can confuse players.
    Where are the rules of the game? I think I saw them in the werewolf central but you should post them in the reqruitment thread too, otherwise people do not know what they sign up for.
    Post some advertising at the werewolf central that helps sometimes.

    Hope those advices can help you.

    Woo hoo.

    Personally, the red dwarf bit you quoted isn't the best line in that scene. But I don't know how it goes, "you want to (do stuff) and you still think you're sane."

    It might be better to create a new thread rather than edit the first post of this one, as now some people will be confused by the comments which might appear completely unrelated.

    A question here. Does this hold for every participant? Because there is 200% chance of having a role here and I'm having some troubles imagining how this will run.

    Actually, the chances are different.

    1 - Pt = (1 - P1) × (1 -P2) × ... × (1 - Pn)

    In this case:

    1 - Pt = 0.54 = 0.0625

    1 = Pt + 0.0625
    Pt = 1 - 0.0625 = 0.9375

    Meaning the chance of at least one role is 93.75%

    I've got 6 out of 11.

    I need 5 more or I'll reduce the mafia numbers, possibly.
