Symbols of Deception?

Fingers crossed, makeup, a mask, can you help me think of more symbols of deception? (objects are best)



I made a new thread upon the suggestion a reset would be helpful: Game Design Discussion and Review

I'm thinking of running a strategy game (maybe along the lines of Countries @ War), and I'm wondering if someone knows where I can find an Earth map divided into regions of roughly equal size.
There are many hexmaps, if that's your thing

I suspect the need has passed in the last 10 months.

Anyway, does anyone have any thoughts on whether the arms race model could maybe be modified not to need three threads each? There are nine AR threads on the front page now and I just feel like this is too many. Quicktopics, maybe?

I've had this idea for a roleplay heavy game in my head for too long. Is there enough interest to start it?
Does it need any changes? I haven't played a mechanics-free roleplay game that's entirely fluff, let alone hosted one.

Brief blurb: An empire roleplay over eras of time, where we go through the evolution of different magical systems, starting from the earliest epochs with the equivalent of tribal rain dances, and figure out the intermediate steps between that and magic spaceships.

Seems like an interesting idea, albeit not one I'd want to play (due to a preference for character driven stuff.) Definitely worth attempting.

I am planning a session of 1000 blank white cards---on another forum, but the answer to my question may be beneficial to anyone hosting card based games. Anyone recommend a website for shuffling cards? Sounds simple but what I am really asking is for a way to make it so there's no need for a referee... So something all players can access, and not tamper with after the setup.

So my ideas of late have end up being to close to RL, a twilight 2000 game with a ragged band in a nuke war post apocalypse? too close to home.
A Stalker focused SG? nope that's out, we got to the the Russian army play that in RL.

But i have an idea, President Urist.
A suggestion game where you are President Urist, the ruler of new a micro country as the cold war rages an you try to lead a nation to peace prosperity an sobriety.

Agree, plus that's about the LAST thing *I* want to see from this kind of game - author spending valuable development time on useless graphics.

I'm not sure I agree with your perception of RL at all.
