Interested in something like this? I've written up some roles and such.
Luffy- As a rubber man, you are immune to most projectiles and attacks. This allows you to survive one extra hit before dying. (BULLETPROOF) Zoro- Your power with the sword allows you to have a kill during the night phase. (VIGILANTE) Nami- As a great navigator, you can track the movements of the currents and pirates. You can watch a person each night to see if he/she visits/gets visited by another. (WATCHER) Usopp- Your observation haki is commendable. As such, you can investigate the roles of other players. (INVESTIGATOR) Sanji- Your bounty poster is noted to be "ONLY ALIVE." If killed, you can take out another person with you as the Vinsmoke family will certainly retaliate. (BOMB) Chopper- As the crew's doctor, you can heal one person per night. (DOCTOR) Robin- You know the secrets of the void century, thus allowing you the secrets of notable people. Upon your death, a player's role will be revealed. (ORACLE) Franky- A great shipwright, you can fabricate a real vest or a sword to give to a person. (GUNSMITH/VESTMAKER) Brook- Your devil fruit abilities is immortality. You can bestow your life to another player during the night phase. If that player is hit, you die in their place. (BODYGUARD)
Strawhat Allies (TOWN) Jinbei: Your expertise with Fishman Karate earned you great renown. Anyone who attacks you will die. (GRANNY) Law: The Ope Ope no Mi allows you to switch the personalities of two people. With this, you can temporarily switch the actions of two people during the next night phase. If Franky is involved in the switch, the new user gives out rigged items. Fails if a third party is targeted. (SWITCHER) Vivi: You are a royalty. As such, you can overturn once per game the effects of a day vote. You will be revealed upon using the action. (GOVERNOR)
Akainu- when investigated (along with oracle reveal) you will be revealed as an innocent. (GODFATHER) Kizaru- you can blind people temporarily using your light powers, thus distracting them from their actions. (ESCORT) Isshu- Your gravity powers can flatten somebody to the ground and will silence him/her during the next day phase. (SILENCER) Green Bull- you are not yet known to the world. you can choose a character and, upon their death, their role will only be revealed to you. (JANITOR)
Yonko (THIRD PARTY):
Big Mom- You don't die when hit during the night phase. However, when you're targeted during this phase, you should be lynched during the day phase for you to win. If not, you die. (BASICALLY, she will win if she is lynched when mafia/zoro hit her during the night) (ALIEN)
Kaidou- You badly wanted to die, going to great lengths to kill yourself. You win if you're lynched. Doesn't count if NKd. (FOOL)
Blackbeard- You hide in the darkness and behind somebody at the beginning of the game. You win if that person is still alive at the end of the game. Doesn't count if you're dead at the end of the game. Will take on the ability of the first person to get lynched/killed. (PSEUDO-ANGEL/ PSEUDO-AMNESIAC)
Shanks- Your use of Emperor's Haki is so great you can nullify all night actions for one night. You win if you survive until the end. (DISRUPTOR)
Anyway, so far the roles seem balanced, the only problem I see is that there are 9 innocents and 4 mafia, this could potentially lead to a premature game over. Imagine this:
N0 an innocent dies, that's 8:4, D1 an innocent gets lynched, that's 7:4, N1 6:4, D2 is mylo already. I'm thinking you need at least 2 or 3 vanilla innocents. Yes, Vanilla, you could potentially screw the balance if you add more roles.
Well, the number of non-roles townies and mafia isn't set in stone. The number isnt really that fixed. From the post, i added three more vanilla townies on jinbei law and carrot. Thinking of removing the nonrole mafia people.
I would totally be in as well. Big Mom's role strikes me as weird and probably impossible to achieve... basically a difficult fool role. Blackbeard is an angel minus the saving ability... that might be good to add. Shank's ability sounds cool and game-changing. Can't wait to see this game in action.
I was thinking first to add if big mom survives until the end, she wins eitherwise. But i think there would be too many win conditions for her if i add that one. Also, me not adding the saving role to blackbeard is mainly for flavor as he isn't really the type of guy to save people.
True enough, but it still feels like he needs some ability to keep his role interesting. You could always consider giving him a different role as well... like stealing an ability from a dead player, perhaps?
That could actually work, both game-wise and flavor wise. Though what do you think if I limit it to the first person that get lynched/killed?
You could always have anonymous deaths as well - make it so that Blackbeard won't know what he gets. You could then make Robin a mortician, which ties into her archaeology knowledge, or Brook, who is himself a ghost. I'd go with Brook if I were you.
Also, why have Law as a townie when you could have him be a role that switches the roles of two players once in the game? That could open up some fun possibilities. I'd suggest limiting it to townies only - could be frustrating to switch win requirements.
You might also want to be careful with Franky's role description... it's hard to tell if you're saying he gives out real items or fake items.
I don't have any ideas for Big Mom... you already have the basic third party roles covered, and this isn't a good setup for cult.
You might also want a role that can hand out fabbed items... you might be better served replacing Big Mom with say... Eustass Kidd and his lot... Killer, Apoo and Basil Hawkins. Eh?
I'm not quite sure what a mortician does tbh. I'm just learning all this new roles here in UG.
The reason for law is that I don't want to have too many PR roles around but if that could make the game more fun, why not? I'm noting all this change.
Franky gives out real items. Lol.
I'm thinking of another iteration where the worst generation is present instead of the marines so I'm not really going to include them here.
lol I didn't even read anything last night I just posted xD
Roles seems awesome. +1 About law's role switching idea ... if you want another vanilla townie Mr. 2, or Pedro will do.
Marine as mafia lmao xD That's good but I don't see garp as a bad guy so I don't think he fit in mafia category. Same can be said for smoker and tashigi :p What about about replacing them with sengouku, Aokiji?
And there is no one from Shichibukai? means no Boa Hancock -_- lol We can always make a sequel :p Don't be greedy bard if that's the case we might need to add all SuperNovas xD
But really everything looks awesome. Can't wait ^ ^
I'm thinking of another iteration where the worst generation is present instead of the marines so I'm not really going to include them here
Townie names are just actually place holders and I just placed them there. It could be anything and anyone in the pirate world lol. I can't imagine how law's role switch powers could go down. I'm simulating it in my mind lol but it would just be confusing. Any suggestions?
As I said, vanilla names are placeholders. Garp smoker and tashigi are just the first marine names I thought of so I placed them there.
Adding in the shichibukai/supernova might be too cumbersome to manage as there would be too many people at any given time.
EDITED THE TOWN ROLES.
So I basically removed any nilla roles and added this three in. Town is now 12 in number.
Strawhat Allies (TOWN) Jinbei: Your expertise with Fishman Karate earned you great renown. Anyone who attacks you will die. (GRANNY) Law: The Ope Ope no Mi allows you to switch the personalities of two people. With this, you can temporarily switch the actions of two people during the next night phase. If Franky is involved in the switch, the new user gives out rigged items. Fails if a third party is targeted.(SWITCHER) Vivi: You are a royalty. As such, you can overturn once per game the effects of a day vote. You will be revealed upon using the action. (PRINCESS)
For Law's switching, win condition is still the same. Only the NAs will differ.
For the mafia, I also removed the nilla roles. Mafia is now 4.
