Knew the fucking cult was bad news.

Signing up.

In short: The cult converted enough people to equal the number of townies. Therefore, the game has a rather empty ending, and everyone goes home disappointed.

Voting JDC because I don't like initalism names.

A.K.A. Random vote, if it wasn't obvious.

--------------------
Your layout has been removed.
Random votes are extremely useful, in that they get discussion going. No-kill really just gives the Mafia an extra kill, and doesn't reveal anything important, generally.

As of now, I am very suspicious of Pheno. Because I make an attempt to get discussion going, I'm vote-worthy? MajorasMask9 implied that he had reason to vote Henix, but nobody seemed to notice? And what do you mean by a "funny and deadly bandwagon"? I never said that I was seriously interested in killing JDC. Random votes are almost the most important part of the game, because how a person reacts can be very indicative of their role.

And KWB has a point. Is Pheno suspicious because he started an even more deadly bandwagon? For the record, I don't believe that, but I'm suspicious of 102, and changing my vote to Phenolatukas.

By the way - you will regret voting me off. I think Jorshamo knows something....

Just my two cents.


What. I said that I wasn't interested in killing you.

I don't have time right now to talk about every that Pheno said, but I'll get to it later, if I can.

Okay, I'll admit I jumped the gun a little. However, I am honestly surprised to see Pheno, of all people, advocating follow the cop, above all else.

"because how a person reacts can be very indicative of their role"? You reacted a lot to what was suposed to be a simple joke, which hardly puts you in the clear. You're trying to kill me off becuase 10204307, rather stupidly, bandwagoned? "because he started an even more deadly bandwagon", you say? This wasn't intended as a bandwagon, or expected to be. And isn't.


I know I''m acting pretty scummy. I know (now) that you weren't expecting that vote to become a bandwagon. However, the speed in which it happened seemed a little suspicious. But I think this is a town-on-town scuffle more than anything now.

That's not the only logic flaw you made. "No-kill really just gives the Mafia an extra kill, and doesn't reveal anything important, generally."

Hahahah. No. Did you know that the first time this was said in a game, it was by the mafia? They wanted the town to kill themselves off.

No-Kills are admitedly a double edged sword. Stalling means the mafia won't be killed, but let's be fair here. If YOU randomly vote off a townie on the first day, or simply for the sake of it, what do you do? You bring the mafia one player closer to victory, while leaving the town one good player less powerful.

Alternatve? One of the most effective tactics in mafia is for the town to stall No-Kill while giving as little information to the mafia as possible, so that the mafia may not work out who the doctor is. Said doctor will protect the sheriff every night, and the sheriff will keep checking until the doctor is killed. "But the sheriff is useless unless he finds a mafia!" you cry. Not true at all. Each person checked by the sheriff confirms them as a cetian role, narrowing the targets down. Each player checked becomes a part in a network of communication between town players, and with over half of the town checked it is possible to simply kill an unchecked player every night and win. If the sheriff finds the mafia players quickly, the game is over. And No-Killing means the town won't drag themselves closer to loseing in the process. 1 kill a round instead of 2 means the sheriff only loses 1 player for every one he checks, not 2. The game is twice as slow. That's a big diference.


No-kills are less useful than you make them out to be. Consider the options: No-kill and rely on the sheriff, unless he is night-killed before he finds anyone or the doctor identifies him, or is roleblocked repeatedly, or the doctor is roleblocked and he is killed, or the doctor is killed before he identifies himself, among other things. Yes, the Follow-The-Cop method IS powerful, BUT there are quite a few things that could go wrong. And if they do, then what? We've been no-killing the whole game, and likely end up in LyLo with no information.

Alternative? We lynch according to who we suspect, and gather information while doing so. While lynching may result in killing an innocent player, it does garner information to aid future lynches.

As you can imagine, this is extremely scary for the mafia expecialy if the sheriff is able to team up with other power roles like the vig or governor. The game is only up when the doctor dies, meaning the sheriff can reveal his information but if the town keeps quiet with the communication, it is extremely hard for the mafia to kill the doctor at night.

I think you need to pay more attention to what's happening this game. There is no Vig or Gov, and as mentioned, there are more things that can go wrong than just the Doc dying. In fact, the Cop is essentialy useless after he reveals himself, due to the Roleblocker, until the
Roleblocker is killed.

Anyway, I'm Retracting my vote for Phenolatukas, and voting instead for 10204307. Bandwagonning when he did, and staying on the wagon by himself seems a bit of an odd move.

Look: I know I'm not in a good position from the sniper not killing me. It's to be a gambit on the part of the mafia to incriminate me. They know all of you are going to jump on me for not being sniped, so they could spend their kill elsewhere. I'm honestly as surprised as you are that I'm not dead right now. Right now, I'll hold my vote.

e: oh hey. posts in the last 5 hours. thanks for nothing, ninja protection.

Voting Phenolatukas

102, you've got it the wrong way around. He was strongly advocating Follow-the-cop, since there are quite a few things that could impede that strategy. He didn't want to random vote, because by analyzing their reactions, the mafia could be incriminated far more reliably.

--------------------

Just one thing to add: Pheno told me a few days ago that he were the sheriff. When I asked him about this later, after he had claimed that he thought someone else was the sheriff (I forget who), he backpedaled, saying that it was a gambit to draw fire away from the real sheriff. He then provided "evidence", in the form that he claimed to be the doctor in an earlier game. However, there's a major differences. He never made this publicly known. You can't draw fire away from the real sheriff if nobody thinks you're the real sheriff. As such, I honestly don't believe that he's innocent, and instead he's desperately covering his ass for a botched roleclaim.

Damn it. So close to doing something useful. Oh well.

Right, so, unless I hear any objections about earlier claims, I reserved hosting this round a few days ago.

DISCLAIMER:
This will be a very bastardly game, with a lot of roles intended for my amusement, and the amusement of spectators. Sign up at your own risk. Additionally, it will be double-blind. This means you do not know what roles are out there, nor what the ratio of town-to-scum is, but trust me. You will know when you win. Also, I expect you to active. This will be a very short game.

Now then, shall we get down to business?

I remember reading about the first game in a NP magazine back when I was in elementary school. Seemed like an interesting premise, but I didn't have anything more advanced than an SNES, so I never really followed up on it. I might go check it out again, now that I've been reminded of it.

The movie you're thinking of is Cast Away, with Tom Hanks, by the way.

Alright then. Game start!
120 HOUR MAFIA
This game functions like normal, with one major exception: The game must be concluded in 120 hours (5 days), or everyone loses. Don't worry, I've tailored this game to make it possible. Heh heh heh...

hurf durf

Clarification, since a few people asked questions: When I said that this was 5 day mafia, I meant you had five RL days until the game ends. In other words, the game ends on Friday, unless a resolution is obtained before.

False; It has had 3 or 4, if I'm not mistaken.

So, yeah, nobody was lynched. Everyone loses, because everyone was an Impatient Jester. The end.
