Yes, another Lord of the Rings game! No, I don’t have any other sources of inspiration!
This game will not be as complex as Forging of the Rings. In fact, the concept is pretty simple. Everyone is vanilla. However, both factions (town and mafia) will have a few factional abilities they can use to tip the scales.
Lynch mechanics will work differently as well. Instead of the person with the most votes being lynched, the X (depending on the player count) number of people with the most votes are nominated. The scum will choose one nominated player to kill. Before this player dies, they will be able to kill any other player. In other words, there will be two kills per phase.
Mafia do not have a kill. To compensate for that, the scum team will be larger than usual. Of course, if the mafia really want to direct a kill, they can choose to lynch one of their own.
At the earliest, this game will begin after Crosscode Mafia is done.
