    Battle of Waterloo: forum mafia signups

    About a month ago, after watching the movie Waterloo, it occurred to me that war would be a perfect setting for a mafia game. In a themed game, some events are difficult to explain in stories, but the confusion reigning on the battlefield could conveniently be exploited to explain anything. The Waterloo battle, after I studied it thoroughly, was particularly well suited for a mafia setting. One reason of course is that it is one of the most famous battles ever fought. As for other reasons... you'll find about those as you play. Who would not want to be Napoleon or Wellington at the height of the great drama?

    Signups start now and will last about a week. I'd like to get at least 15 players to be able to use all of the planned roles, and more are always welcome.

    If you have opinions of the starting time of the game, let me know. Currently it is my plan to start and end phases at 19:00 GMT, which would allow players in America and in Europe to catch the starting and ending hours of the phases.

    If there are any questions, feel free to ask.

    1. I don't want to be the Prince of Orange. He was a hack and deployed infantry in line when there was cavalry in the area, leading to their massacre. Any idiot knows infantry has to fix bayonets and form square when cavalry threatens!

    2. I don't want to be von Blucher. Nothing against Prussians, I just feel he was late to the field, and had a minor impact.

    3. I'm in. Love me some Napoleonic war action.

    I will be gone Thursday - Sunday. I'm also busy at work.

    I would like to play, but if you're starting before next week, I'll watch from the sidelines.

    Considering how my work schedule has been the last couple days, I think I'll have to watch this one from the sideline. >_>

    He should. I'm after him also.
    In the end there can only be one (unlynchable).
