Brainstorming/Game Idea- Terminator, Skynet's Seduction
« on: February 12, 2016, 09:27:02 am »

For some reason I was thinking of the Terminator movies this morning, and how if Skynet really wanted John Connor not to be born, instead of trying to kill his mom, all they would have to do is send one to seduce her instead. Since robots cannot into gene pool, babby never happens and Skynet wins forever.

And that's how this idea got kicking around in my head to do a forum game about it, and the only thing that made sense in context was a Mafia game, thus this thread.

So you have one player as Sarah, and then you have other players as Terminators, and some who are humans from the future to seduce her before the machines do.

I'm making this a brainstorming thread because I have zero experience with Mafia and am bad at GMing things in general. Literally all I know is the Terminators would be the "Suspects" in this case I suppose.
Also I don't really know anyone who does GM these things so take this as a free for all if you want it.

Heh.
This... could work, with some refinement.
Although it would make a lot more sense just to kill his mother anyway. Instead of having to deal with all of these "emotions" humans claim to have.

On another note, Standoff is a game I'm running. Ever want to kill someone with your very own Stand? You've come to the right place.

My thinking on it was that trying to kill someone results in them fighting/running away, but seduction would cause them to walk right into the trap.
Eh, I suppose its just a silly idea that popped in my head I needed to share.

So it would probably work just as well, or better if it was a straight kill thing. IDK, like I said, just wanted to share a silly idea I had.

After reading your thread, I started work on building this Mafia variant (which include both a faction who want to only seduce Sarah Connor and a faction who want to only kill Sarah Connor). It is not going to be fully compliant with Terminator canon, but then again, neither is this idea in the first place. It also may not be balanced very well, so be warned. I also may not have the time or the patience to run Mafia games either, so if someone else want to take my preexisting work and run the game for me, be my guest.

(I might prefer it even.)
