It's that time again! Possibly? Happy holidays, it's time for all of your friends to die!! ♥

AKA I'm thinking about running a murdergame come December! I'm thinking the game will start approximately the week of Dec. 6th (very approximately), and will probably last from the beginning to the middle of January. This is a tentative post to see how much interest there is for that timeframe, but also because I'm mulling over two ideas and I'd like to see which one sounds more fun.

Both ideas will work with the standard mafia set-up (mafia and villagers, voting off the weakest link, etc), but with roles tweaked to fit each idea. Both will also have mystery and puzzle solving elements, since how characters will have ended up in their situation is crucial to "winning" each game and escaping.

HARD SCI-FI
The concept is vaguely based on a few missions in the Mass Effect series, but which missions those are is a secret! I don't want to ruin the surprise. Characters would be on an abandoned space station, and they would be killing each other for the chance to get to the escape pod, since the AI in charge of the station has locked them out until they reach the arbitrary number of seats in the pod. So for example, given a game of 40, the game will end when 8 people are left alive, since this is how many seats are in the escape pod.

UNETHICAL EXPERIMENTATION
Characters arrive in a mysterious location, and unbeknownst to them, they're all taking part in an experiment on human(oid) psychology. Characters are sorted into test and control groups, though they don't know which is which, nor will they initially know that they're taking place in an experiment. Characters will be encouraged through "experimental methods" to kill each other, though the incentive for characters to kill each other will differ greatly depending on which group they're in.

Comment here with which idea you prefer, and your whether you'd definitely be able to play or might be able to play! Characters are optional, though I'd like to hear it, haha. This is definitely not a commitment, since I'm just gauging interest to see how feasible it is for me to run as compared to some other things I'm interested in!
