Amazing Fantasy is an advanced bastard Mafia game for
The design file is, as always, impressive to behold and full of moving parts. Expect complex roles. The game is a bastard game, so you know to trust nothing (but see "A Note on Bastardry" in the Rules section below). Some things in the game will intentionally deceive you, while others will make it nearly impossible for some of you to win. The game is not meant to be equal parts fair for all players; meaning some of you will, via luck of the draw, wind up with the short end of the stick and have an extremely difficult uphill battle to earn a victory. If that ends up being you, don't discourage! If it's any consolation, in the last game, one player was so convinced he'd lose that he gave up on the first day and refused to participate further—that player somehow still won. So don't give up, no matter how impossible things seem in the moment, you just never know what shocking twist lies around the corner.
And now, without further ado, it's video time:
The Story Thus Far...
There isn't any. This is where the story begins! Okay, I guess despite this being the start of the story a little background is in order. I'll start you off by telling you that mild-mannered professional wallflower Peter Parker is a 16-year-old student at midtown high who is really smart and will probably become one of the world's leading scientists someday if something crazy like a radioactive spider bite doesn't completely sidetrack his progress first. Orphaned at a young age, Peter lives with his aunt and uncle in Queens, NY, just a stone's throw away from the much more exciting island of Manhattan, home to such illustrious superhero teams as The Fantastic Four or even The Avengers! But I'm sure mentioning them is unimportant to this story, as our poor pimpled pubescent protagonist Peter Parker is never going to run with the likes of them. After all, Peter Parker doesn't have any superpowers...
But that's not the only story we need to concern ourselves with. Oh no! Dear reader, I'm talking about the true origins of the character here. The meta origins that exist beyond this universe! Yes, you see, our story owes its creation at least in part to the diligent creative drive of a young comic book writer in another world. I'm talking of course about Stan Lee, without whom none of this would be possible. No origin story would truly be complete without mention of him. Somewhere, out there, he toils away for a company named Marvel, churning out script after script, each one great in its own way yet none of them fulfills his true creative need. A need to tell stories of a different kind. Stories with real characters who have problems just like you and me, whose worries and woes don't go away just because they put on a mask. He yearns to tell stories with backbone, stories with morals, stories that really matter. Stories, like...

P.S. said:"Did you know that Zelda Dungeon has something called a 'First message reaction score' on forum topics? I sure didn't until I discovered it today (June 16th, 2023)!! Now that I know it's a thing, I kind of vainly want my first message reaction score to beat all the records. If you're enjoying this game, or just appreciate all the effort I put into it, you can let me (and all of ZD) know by liking this post and boosting the game's first message reaction score. Thanks a lot! Like and subscribe!" -Your Friendly Neighbourhood Mod
