new mafia idea-Fantasy

I had this idea, and Il think it out more later. I thought of a mafia game where the night actions and day actions are just as important of what happens, as to who it happens to. In addition, I thought, a mafia could do more than just kill you during the night, and someone would obviously have a few defenses set up

basically this is the idea

A Fantasy themed Mafia game, without Roles but instead classes and races.

Basically, almost anything can go if it is within the bound of your class/race.

heres an example (please be more creative though, and all actions have to be approved by me. Else you will notice NMRs or sudden weaknesses in them)
Night 1 (no kill btw)
Gimli the Dwarf-forges battleax
Gandalf the wizard-makes spell that lets him breathe underwater.
Saruman makes spell that drowns people

Night2
Saruman casts drwoning spell on Gimli
Gandalf casts breathing spell on Gimli (really lucky :P )
Gimli smites down attacker with battleax

Result-Saruman is wounded from teh ax, and Gimli survives due to Gandalf's help.

Other rules-everybody in one race or class can PM eveyrother member of that group whenever he wants. So in the above example, the Two Wizards, Gandalf and Saruman, can Pm each other, and Gimli can PM any other dwarf or warrior whenever he wishes to.

There will be Hidden Mechanics

Would anyone like to play this game?
Notes-not completely done
will start later, maybe a month from now, when Im not so busy with track
Won't be LoTR themed, I just wanted names and The Hobbit was on my desk

I would but it needs working, if we make our own roles then it would be nye impossible for the drowning and water surviving to happen, I think you should mandate roles.... but I like the fantasy idea.

Hmm...

Choosing your own roles?

Nope, that could never work :D.

No ichoose the roles. You simply can do pretty much anything possible within those rules.

I like the idea, I could help with it if you want.

(All I read is fantasy, I have lots of names and I've been wanting to GM again for a while now).
