Theme to be determined? What? I thought it was set that XC would be Xenoblade Chronicles X! Well, that was my plan but I also thought I'd have finished the game by now only to have trailed off in Chapter 10 last year and not gotten back to it. That said, XCX doesn't really work as a real roman numeral so I suppose it could happen later during the XC period of Mafia games. I have played the original Xenoblade Chronicles so I'm currently thinking of maybe making that game the theme. While it would have been nice to have XC open to the whole series, I don't think people want XC3 spoilers right now and I still need to get through 2 so that would make the general theme difficult to do from my hosting perspective thought it could probably be done.

I've also had some other ideas for possibilities. Mario Sports as a theme or Mario and Sonic at the Olympics. Another Kirby themed game after so many years since the last one. For that matter, I'm always tempted to do another Animal Crossing Mafia but wouldn't mind doing another Donkey Kong theme, Jurassic Park and DC Universe theme. (We've never done a Marvel themed one but I'm just not sure I'm the best host for that as I just never got into that comic universe much.) And then there's Pokemon. Untouched since Mafia 8. I think it's time it was revisited.

In any case, I thought I'd throw out a sign-up thread for now since I wouldn't be planning on starting anything until Sept. 12 anyways. Once Backlaugust is done then I'll sit down and think out what I actually want to do and remind myself how to host one of these games again. But in the meantime, might as well let these sign-ups be open for as long as possible and see what the player response is. You know me. I'm always looking for that magic minimum number of 16 players.

Sure why the heck not,  although depending on what happens in the next month or so with the move.  We have been approved we are just waiting on a letter in the mail to set the interview day.  The letter is supposed to be here some time the 1st week of September and then after the interview we have 120 days to find a place so we will see what happens.

So tentatively in and will update status closer to the end of the signups.

I'm in though I have only played XCX so I might end up role playing in that direction if you pick the first game.

Over halfway there when it comes to the player count. I should light up the Discord signal as well to make others aware.

I can 100% sustain a successful roleplay without spoiling anything. That is what battle banter and memes are for.

But it's gotta be Xenoblade Chronicles as the theme, it's just gotta! I've a feeling that we're gonna make it that even if you choose something else anyway! And you don't have to worry, I myself have played only XC1 and XCX so there won't be any spoilers for 2 and 3 from me.

I am going to have to sit out this one.  I am getting a packet of info and the housing voucher so my time in September will be finding a place out in Mesa so I have to step out of the game.

Could be, could be. However, I should probably get some invites/reminders going. Should check with ThePerm and Luigi Dude. Crimm and lolmonade would probably join if I contact them on Discord. Go through the rolodex and see who else I can check on. Plugabugz may want another shot.

I thought I'd hammer out the details on this a few days ago but I've let time slip away on other projects. That said, since it seems like most people signing up were already jumping on the Xenoblade bandwagon, I can confirm I'll make this a Xenoblade Chronicles 1 themed game. I've been thinking a bit on this and there's a couple things I might be able to do to bring some of that Xenoblade flavor to the rules of Mafia.

I know I had set the deadline of starting this game for Sept. 12 aka tomorrow but let's push that date back to next week Sept. 19. Hopefully that won't inconvenience too many players who have signed up. If all goes well, that time will allow me to find a few other players to get the player count up and I'll also start writing up the rules and roles to get those posted.

Finally, when it comes to roleplay, I'll be taking the character of Alvis so that one is off-limits. You know it makes sense for the host to have that role.

At risk of being spoiled on Xenoblade Chronicles 1 while I'm in the middle of playing it, count me in.

Yeah this is out of character for Khushrenada to not bring attention to the game after all this time

Well, well, well. This sure went according to plan....  :P

To make a long story short, I was unable to launch the game last month because my rolodex finally failed me and I just couldn't seem to get the player count up to 16 as various people I reached out to declined to play. As it turns out, launching it then might have been a headache anyways.

Hope no one was too worried about my well-being. I'm pretty much fine. Just taking care of a bunch of things I'd been putting off but needed to finally get done now like automobile maintenance, technology upgrades, and other life decisions and responsibilities combined with a busy time at work. With no clear ETA for when this game could happen, I didn't really know what to say or post about whether this game could happen or not. Combined with the stuff I was trying to also get done keeping me pretty busy from checking in too often, I just found it easier to say nothing and ignore the whole situation.

But now that I've had a well-deserved vacation, I'm ready to see if we can't get this game happening yet. And maybe with a month's time passed, those that couldn't make it before can make it now. I guess I'll check in with everyone again and see what the ultimate situation will be for this game.
