Default Mafia - Forum game. A possibility?

so. i'm bored.

I thought I'd try and run a mafia forum game.

it works like this.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia_(game) obviously via a forum not in a room. Principle is the same though.

Firstly, will the mighty mod types let me get away with it?
Second, which forum? Roleplay maybe? it's kinda an in character thing. I was thinking of theming it 40k anyway
and also... who would be interested if they let us?

Interesting idea Whizzwang, the RPG games forum would be your best bet, so Druchii in Space would be the guy to talk to if you need any help with it.

I've been on a another forum where they have lots of mafia games, and I've thought up some ideas for a 40K themed one. While I have no experience of modding or even playing in a mafia game I'd be prepared to try to set one up if interest is shown in it. Of course if you're working out idea for a mafia Whizzwang I'd be happy to PM you my ideas if you want.

I'd like to get in on this. PM me when you start, or if you would like any help that I could provide.

Would we include specialist rolls? I know when we played we always had a nurse/doctor (protective) and a sherif (investigative), but I like that uber long list of rolls on the wikipedia page.

a 40k-themed mafia game could work well in an inquisition setting. Root out the Heretic/Alien/whatever irks us at the moment. For the emperor! I'd be down with that kind of thing.
