    Seconded. Metal Gear Solid wasn't a huge success, but I had fun writing it.

    I make shit up all the time. If it fits the narrative and doesn't ruin game balance, do whatever really.

    I've created roles called Reviver and Soul Thief. The Reviver has worked well in both games it's been applied, the Soul Thief had the potential to break the game but the scum got trigger shy (randomly enough, I'd made them far too strong, but that strength got them thinking in too many ways).

    Go crazy.

    I wish I had my notes so I could go and look at some of the shit I have used. I could go look at the archived threads but meh.

    Making shit up is fun.

    If I get a call this week and am turned down for a job, I'll be starting my rewatch of The Wire in prep for Season 1 of GriMafia Wire.

    So, The Wire is coming together slowly... but I don't know if we have 23 people. I can probably trim it down to 18-20 if needed.

    I got three weeks holiday off work and in a better state of mind than when Grim’s game started so a good mafia game soon wouldn’t go amiss.

    So, this won't happen for a bit. I did get a call and I did get turned down for the job but they were so impressed, they are working with HR to create a job just for me. What a wild ride that phone call was.

    The upside is I will get to work on my rewatch and season 1 should start here in the next week or two.

    I would run something, but I won't really have time during the semester. I know JP has Avengers in his pocket if Grim isn't ready with The Wire...

    I have intentions for TMNT III during the Christmas break, though

    I'm keen to run one but I've just got crazy mental block. The last game felt so shit by my usual standards and with the massive rut I'm in after getting made redundant, I'm just struggling for motivation.

    I've got 23 roles roughly sorted but really want to get through a rewatch to (Mc)Nut(ty) out the details. That 23 can be condensed into maybe 18 roles with some roles combined but yeah, my brain is fried trying to write it up.

    Semester's over after this week and I only have one final I'm concerned about next week. So soonish I'll be posting the sign-up for TMNT III.

    I am going to try something different with my next game. It will be interesting to see how everyone plays when everybody knows your name.

    What's the next game after cheers? I haven't played in forever but I could get down if the subject material was something I was familiar with.

    I watched like 3 Cheers videos on YouTube, and now my entirely suggested list is basically that.

    Been a fan of Cheers for years. Sam and Diane were like the one of the first on-off couples on TV though I feel they pushed it a bit with Diane constantly rejecting his proposals. Also the Sam/Rebecca baby angle, the less said about that the better.

    Harry the Hat was a fucking great character though and only learned recently he died. If anyone gets a chance who is not familiar, look up his scenes on YouTube. He helped Coach and killed Gary’s bar once and for all. Only recently learned the actor died.

    Also suggested a Brooklyn 99 game in the past and would personally love to see that. Nowhere near experienced enough to write it up myself so hopefully someone more experienced takes that up on board.

    Wanna go through a few more of these and then try my hand at running a small game.

    I had some thoughts on an Archer one that I thought could be fun.
