The Rules:

The Golden Rule:
This is a game. Everyone who signs up to play must be considerate of each other, never get personal, and focus on having fun. Once the game starts, having signed up is a commitment: inactivity is just as inconsiderate as rude comments.

The Standard Rules:
1. No communication between players outside of the game thread or shared QTs at any time. This includes passing references, jokes, or cases in other games or threads, whether in context or not.
2. If the game thread is locked, do not post. If you are unsure if something is locked, ask the mod by PM.
3. Direct or verbatim quoting of mod-provided information (including QT opening and closing times) is strictly forbidden. Paraphrasing is okay.
4. Actions with instructions that do not specify a game state will be resolved in the order they are received.
5. All night actions must be submitted within 36 hours of day ending.
6. Players must post once every 24 hours.
7. Do not edit or delete posts, ever. If you need to clarify or correct something, post again.
8. Invisible text, font size less than 10, and spoiler tags are not allowed.
9. Cryptography is not allowed.
10. The time between an exile being reached and a flip being provided is called twilight. All players may continue posting during this time, including the exiled player.
11. Dead players may not post in thread or QT, except their Role QT. An exiled player is not "dead" until a flip has been provided.
12. Personal multimedia, such as video or audio recordings, are not allowed in the game thread.

The Voting Rules:
1. Votes should be in this format: Vote: Playername. Unambigiuous nicknames are acceptable, or any string that uniquely identifies a user. Note that the point of voting is, in fact, unambiguity, and attempting to make it unclear to other players (or, of course, mods) which user you are voting for is very ill-advised.
2. Unvotes should be in this format: unvote or Unvote: Playername.
3. Unvotes are not required if changing your vote from one player to another.
4. You may NOT vote: no exile.
5. Exiles occur when a simple majority (rounded up) of living players is reached. Once reached, an exile cannot be undone.
6. If a majority lynch is not reached by the Day's deadline, the player with the most votes will be exiled. In case of a tie, the first player to reach the tied vote count will be exiled.

The Rest:
1. Bold, Brown text are reserved for the MODs. Players may not use it.
2. If you have an issue or problem with the game, please PM the Mod. Do not post complaints in the game thread.
3. Mods make mistakes - please point them out gently. If they can be corrected, they will. If irreversible, they will stand as final to be commiserated over after the game.
4. If a mod error disadvantages one faction greatly, the game may be called off.
5. Ask all questions and make all requests directly to the Mod via PM. Questions deemed as "universal" (defined as questions for which the answers should be available to all players) will be requested to be re-posted in the Game Thread and answered there.
6. Players may request prods on other players if they have not posted in 24 hours. Players are subject to replacement or modkill after one prod.
7. All rule violations will be dealt with according to their severity, as determined by the mod.
8. Each player will receive their own QT, regardless of role. Don't quote from it.
9. If the game goes on for 3 days and 3 nights without a lynch or nightkill, town wins.

1. Days will last seven IRL days.
2. Nights will last 48 hours.

Donner Party Mafia is an Open Setup that features a unique Cannibal mechanic that temporarily hides the role and alignment of a nightkilled player.

Setup
2 Cannibal Mafia Goons
1 Cannibal Serial Killer
1 Cannibal Vigilante
1 Gunsmith (Dietician)
1 Roleblocker
6 Townies

Mechanics
Daystart
Mafia have daytalk
The Serial Killer has 1-shot NK immunity and a 1-shot roleblocker immunity
Dietician is a flavour cop that produces results of Cannibal/Not Cannibal
The town cannot no-eliminate.

When a Cannibal night-kills someone, they take the body and put it in their larder, resulting in no role/alignment reveal to the town for that kill. The Cannibal who performed the kill learns the role/alignment reveal via their result PM.

If a Cannibal night-kills another Cannibal, they take all of the bodies their target had, learning all the role/alignment information their target knew. This will include their target's night-kill target from that same night, if applicable.

If more than one Cannibal night-kills the same target, they will all learn the target's role/alignment information. They will not learn that their target was killed multiple times.

If two Cannibals night-kill eachother, and are not in turn night-killed by yet another Cannibal, their role/alignment information, and that of all the bodies they possessed, is revealed to the town.

The Cannibal mechanic has no effect on eliminations. The role/alignment of the eliminated is always revealed to the town. If a Cannibal is eliminated, the role/alignment information of all their bodies is also revealed.

I gave you the mod robe on discord, so feel free to start adding channels.

Also, the rules post says there is no plurality exile, but the setup post says town cannot no-exile, which seem to be in conflict.

I have fixed the plurality exile, thanks for that catch. It is updated, and it reads...
6. If a majority lynch is not reached by the Day's deadline, the player with the most votes will be exiled. In case of a tie, the first player to reach the tied vote count will be exiled.

Fun question.
In this instance, a player will be chosen at random to be exiled.

I just posted this in the codenames thread:

I just don't have the time right now. And we saw how much people weren't happy with my limited availability last game. I expect to being able to opt in on games again, sometime in July.

They are going to Munich, for an intensive language program. My father is from Germany, and languages are kind of the family thing to do.

I'll be in Italy the last week of June. But not Florence -- the Amalfi Coast for work and then Venice for fun.

I'm reading a mystery series by Donna Leon that is set in Venice. They're pretty good. I usually like to read books set in places I am visiting, so you might like it. Apparently Venice/Italy is a complex place politically!

Hi Shraeye! How are Raerae and the kids?
We're all managing, pandemic teaching was getting the better of me but I'm recenetered and back at it. The kids keep finding new ways to make us grow older every day, which swing between hilarious and annoying.

I'm currently coming off of a covid spell that I and our youngest  had, the other two have escaped luckily.  Once this is kicked and everyone can get back to daycare things will be much smoother.

How're you? How's everyone? What have I missed? (Sorry for intermittent hiatuses)

Hi hi hi hi hi!  Its so good to see you!  I have been wondering if the last few semesters had steamrolled you.  I am completely flattened, but things seems to be getting back to some sort of a rhythm even if the students are by and large struggling with basic life way more than ever before.  Tell Rae I bought her recommended rum for the Shaker and Spoon cocktail box on rum month, and we are sold on her expertise. xoxo

Imagine, if you would, a utopia of sorts. No utopia we will ever see though. This place is far away in the galaxy of MiltonBradlia.

For Millenia, it was a land of happiness and joy. Home to Hippopotamuses of all sizes, shapes and colors. Green Hippos, Red Hippos, Yellow, Purple... Every color you could imagine.
The Hippos spent their days wiggling their creepy ears, playing in the water... and feasting on delicious eggs!

But the Hippos feasted too much! Instead of wiggling their dumb ears and swimming all day these lazy SOBs should of been focusing on cultivating more eggs, as it was there only source of food!

What was once a beautiful and safe utopia has now turned into a desolate wasteland. When the supply of eggs ran out the Hippos split into 2 schools of belief.
One school focuses on trying to find ways to grow more eggs and protect them from the other Hippos. They hold themselves up in their village, working diligently in attempts to rebuild their utopia.
The other Hippos though... they did not want to waste time working and growing new eggs to eat. So they turned to their only other food source available to them - HIPPOS!

Will the good Hippos prevail, returning MiltonBradlia to its future state of utopia? Or will the cannibalistic Hippos rid the land of the last of the Good Hippos?

Who knows! Let's find out!

Post by: faust on July 18, 2022, 09:01:51 am
Somehow we've not had any setup discussion, despite this being an open setup.

Town has 3 PRs, and this being open, they are all also virtual ICs. However, we have forced Exiles. This is a bit of a problem as it doesn't allow for a clear point at which it's sensible to claim. But we absolutely need to allow claims because exiling a town PR is just extra awful. If wagons shift here last minute that can quickly lead to a very bad exile.

So, we should come up with a rule to prevent that. Something along the line of, anyone who has less than three votes 24 hours prior to the deadline may not be voted for anymore. Or to a bit of a wider net, maybe anyone who has received at least 3 votes at some point in the Day is eligible for exile.

I think there was so long between signup and launch that we all forgot it was an open setup.

This setup looks really annoying -- we basically don't get night flips. So even if exile weren't mandatory, I would be strongly advocating against no exile because exiles are our only source of information.

But we absolutely need to allow claims because exiling a town PR is just extra awful.

This is a weird take from faust, who IIRC believes that vigilantes are negative utility.

Well in this setup, I believe the vig has information on who they have killed, and they'd be the only person who could tell town this info? Which makes them more useful than normal (although I still don't think the vig should just start random crap shooting like they often do in games)

I hadn't thought of vigilantes being negative utility, but it makes sense: they're essentially an exile of an arbitrary player, and such a player is more likely to be town than scum.

You do not remember correctly.

However, even if I were to agree that vigs are negative utility (which is a dumb take), then it would still be the case that the vig is also a Named Townie, which is a positive utility role.

It must've been ash that was against them, then. He's one of the people that would make an impression with their opinion.

So 1/3rd of town is a bad exile, and 1/4th of players are probably willing to claim PR to get away with being D1'd? So about half the players are "bad exiles", quote unquote? And half of those players are good exiles...

I think this means we shouldn't be scared of outing people D1.

Right. Funny how this conversation is all based on joth incorrectly attributing the negative utility idea to faust. Actually, scumreading faust for seeming to value the vig is striking me as scummy. Even if he had said something about vigs being negative utility in the past, it's strange to expect him to be so consistent that he would say outing the vig is fine in this game.

The biggest problem with daychat is that it sucks conversation out of the thread.

Uhhh, howso?

Because the scum team has divided attention. Now that you ask me though, I guess this applies more to neighborhoods with daychat. I mean, do we want scum to post?

Not that the assessment itself is scummy or wrong, just that it suggests he's thinking about and trying to replicate his Townself for cred.

Ok.

You're actually suggesting that if you were scum you'd "trawl through old posts" to clarify faust's stance on Vigs before posting? Scum joth knows that Town joth wouldn't do that, and Town joth knows that scum joth knows that and therefore wouldn't do it.

A lie, that is.

It wasn't that you got it wrong. It was that you scumread faust for looking at the implications of the setup for PRs, of which vig was only one.
Title: Re: Mafia 138 - Hungry Hungry Hippo Mafia - Day 1 has Started!
Post by: EFHW on July 18, 2022, 10:31:05 pm
Somehow we've not had any setup discussion, despite this being an open setup.

Town has 3 PRs, and this being open, they are all also virtual ICs. However, we have forced Exiles. This is a bit of a problem as it doesn't allow for a clear point at which it's sensible to claim. But we absolutely need to allow claims because exiling a town PR is just extra awful. If wagons shift here last minute that can quickly lead to a very bad exile.

So, we should come up with a rule to prevent that. Something along the line of, anyone who has less than three votes 24 hours prior to the deadline may not be voted for anymore. Or to a bit of a wider net, maybe anyone who has received at least 3 votes at some point in the Day is eligible for exile.

faust doesn't even refer specifically to the vig.

Also scum has daytalk.

Are you suggesting that in the 4.5 minutes between your post and Joseph's, Joseph and I coordinated that they should defend me?

It's entirely possible he took the initiative to defend you without coordination. Either way, it pinged me a little.
But Joseph made a good point that was missing from the discussion. It doesn't look like defending faust to me.
EFHW defending Joseph's stellar defense of Faust, but joth doesn't vote her for it???

vote: joth

Someone should definitely vote for shraeye here for the obvious defense of EFHW's defense of Joseph's defense of faust. I mean, it's pretty obviously a scum move.
Obviously, duh
Seems like joth wants to focus on this to try and just get some mis-exiles

It’s totally normal. He doesn’t fly around as much as MiX, but he does unexplained things (like hands out passes or gives people points but doesn’t tell us what the points correlate to). It’s not scummy for him, really.

When RaeRae, who knows him best is playing, she says that scum Shraeye is like Shraeye-lite. There’s a lot of fizz but not much heft. But that is really hard to discern in D1.

It's always a bit of a bad idea to focus on active players, but it's even worse in multiball. Scum prefers shooting the active players, so there's a good chance that active scum will just be eliminated by the other team.

Right. Funny how this conversation is all based on joth incorrectly attributing the negative utility idea to faust. Actually, scumreading faust for seeming to value the vig is striking me as scummy. Even if he had said something about vigs being negative utility in the past, it's strange to expect him to be so consistent that he would say outing the vig is fine in this game.

Post by: jotheonah on July 20, 2022, 11:41:31 am
I'm going to say a very controversial thing which is that my wagon is bad and nonsense and I think it's kind of scummy to be on it right now.

But which vote on my wagon is the scummiest, you ask? Well, let's meet our contestants.

I think the thing with Vigs is that the decision is made with less information than it would otherwise be. They can be fine and powerful, especially late game.

Right. Funny how this conversation is all based on joth incorrectly attributing the negative utility idea to faust. Actually, scumreading faust for seeming to value the vig is striking me as scummy. Even if he had said something about vigs being negative utility in the past, it's strange to expect him to be so consistent that he would say outing the vig is fine in this game.

vote: joth

EFHW has the first position on the wagon, not generally where scum likes to be, and her vote seems earnest, if slightly confusing (not sure how any of the words there add up to a case on me). So let's keep looking.

You're really going to make me trawl through old posts to find out that I was wrong about your take on vigs?

Ok.

I actually research my posts when I’m scum. Shoot-from-the-hip Joth is town joth.

You're actually suggesting that if you were scum you'd "trawl through old posts" to clarify faust's stance on Vigs before posting? Scum joth knows that Town joth wouldn't do that, and Town joth knows that scum joth knows that and therefore wouldn't do it.

A lie, that is.

Vote: joth

Vote #2 is also a more towny position, but could be scum trying to get something going. That said, I kind of like the case here. Jimmmmm's basically saying that if I'm aware enough of my own meta to comment on it in my defense, I'm probably aware of my own meta enough to circumvent it. But then, am I audacious enough to reverse my own meta, then immediately use that to defend myself? It starts to feel a bit overly complicated, not to mention ineloquent. Wouldn't I just do the thing and let someone else comment on the meta implications.

I could see Jimmmmm making this post as town or as scum, because it's either inauthentic or just poorly thought out.

Note for the record, that I pointed out faust playing out of character and Joseph rushed to his defense.

Also scum has daytalk.

vote: Joseph2302
Are you suggesting that in the 4.5 minutes between your post and Joseph's, Joseph and I coordinated that they should defend me?

It's entirely possible he took the initiative to defend you without coordination. Either way, it pinged me a little.
But Joseph made a good point that was missing from the discussion. It doesn't look like defending faust to me.
EFHW defending Joseph's stellar defense of Faust, but joth doesn't vote her for it???

vote: joth

Vote #3 on a wagon, especially when a good chunk has gone by since vote #2, is IMO the scummiest vote on a wagon. And you can quote me on that some day in the future when I'm in the third position on a wagon after some time has gone by.

shraeye's vote here seems like a joke to me. But he never moved it. So that's scummy.

Obviously, duh
Seems like joth wants to focus on this to try and just get some mis-exiles

There's a reason I'm already voting for Joseph, and it's that his vote on me seems the fakest and laziest. Because I made a joke about shraeye's vote on me, I'm obviously trying to get the town to "focus on this to try and just get some mis-exiles". I'm doing a great job, by the way, of lining up at least one misexile, so props to me I guess. Too bad it's my own.

My only misgiving is that this is almost too lazy to be scum.

vote: joth

I want to have a meaningful vote down and I don’t like how he is sticking to his flimsy case on faust.

See above. This vote is total nonsense, reflects a lack of having read the thread, and really starts to push my wagon into dangerous territory. But again, it's so blatant it almost seems more like bad town play than scum play because it's so blatant.

But the nice thing that gkrieg has going for him is he's also something of a lurker, and several people I respect have expressed an interest in a lurker exile today, so I could definitely get onboard there.

But for me, the winner is shraeye. The combination of being in the scummiest wagon slot and making an apparent joke vote but then not moving it is just enough to put him over the top.

vote: shraeye

sorry to totally botch that analysis. shraeye moved his vote quickly, which tells me that it actually was a joke.

So yeah, I am advocating Joseph or gkrieg based on their bad votes on me. gkrieg also has few enough posts that he should satisfy faust's lurker agenda.

I am definitely sticking to my flimsy case on faust which why I

(A) have repeatedly said my own case is bad

and

(B) have not voted for faust one single time

"Repeatedly" is wrong here.

I'm fine with my vote where it is but I admit that it's the flimsiest of cases and I eagerly await a better one.

Technically I disparaged my own case twice in this post. Hence, "repeatedly" is technically correct.

This might work against me given what Didds just said, but I'm not really frustrated rn. Just trying to play my best game and lead my best life.

I sort of gave up on reacting emotionally to early wagons against me, because they happen with alarming frequency and getting annoyed about them just makes people vote for you more. Now I'm more about vote for me, don't vote for me, whatever, except maybe don't vote for me because I'd rather we exile scum.

It's always a bit of a bad idea to focus on active players, but it's even worse in multiball. Scum prefers shooting the active players, so there's a good chance that active scum will just be eliminated by the other team.

It's also a bad idea to focus on town players.

Who's focusing on active players?  Is this an announcement to the crowd about strategic behavior, or a stone cast at a particular player?
I'm mostly annoyed at people on the joth wagon, and Eddie.

Gasp

At least you can take solace in the fact that I am also annoyed with the joth wagon.

And once EFHW flips town I'll be annoyed with myself.

EFHW has the first position on the wagon, not generally where scum likes to be
I have to comment because this is just so nonsensical to me.

First of all, like, how would you even go about avoiding being the first person on a wagon? Just like, never vote for someone that doesn't already have votes on them? Or be clairvoyant and know which votes will be sheeped by other players?

And second, um.... no. First person is pretty much the best position on a wagon for scum to be at. It doesn't happen all that often because it requires you as scum to actually convince townies to follow your lead, and that's hard, but I see no sensible reason why scum would try to avoid it.

On the plus side, joth has taken a completely outragous position, so that makes me more confident in his tonwieness.

Ok, you have some fair points here. But I think the starter of the wagon is too high-visibility. When people are doing wagon analysis, the person who started the wagon gets scrutinized pretty hard, along with the hammer vote. But, like, you're right that the starter of a wagon doesn't know they're starting a wagon so scum doesn't have much choice about it.

None of that changes that EFHW's vote strikes me as earnest. Not saying EFHW couldn't be scum, just saying there's better options.

Greetings!

Vote: Faust
Welcome + RVS vote

I've been celebrating my nephew's birthday. There was pizza and ice-cream.
Fluff

I hadn't thought of vigilantes being negative utility, but it makes sense: they're essentially an exile of an arbitrary player, and such a player is more likely to be town than scum.
Theory talk

These three are pretty much the most textbook opening posts to a mafia game you can imagine. Things to fall back on when you struggle to contribute. And scum would feel more pressure on that front.

Lots of discussion happened while I was asleep. Let's poke a fellow lurker to see what gives.

Vote: WCD
Then this. I feel you either think lurking is bad and vote-worthy, and then you don't want to do it, or you think it's no big deal and then you wouldn't go after lurkers yourself. Jack is trying to have it both ways, and that just reads as a clumsy attempt to deflect away from himself to me.

Well the reticence to vote for Jack is really making me feel a certain kinda way about Jack. I mean, they can't all be his partners, right?

vote: Jack
I get that, and I appreciate all Jack votes, but it's not really a good way to analyze things in this game I fear. Any scum can have at most one partner, that is probably not going to elicit a significant amount of retinence.

Hmmm....  I was looking at the people voting for me and thinking about their reasons. I went to reread mathdude.  It took 2 minutes.  He has 4 posts and nothing of substance, but there is zero reason for his vote and it happened after the RVS stage had petered out.  Two of his posts are the result of votes, and the other two are when he votes for me without reason (he was following Jack, so because he thought I was lurking??) and then doubles down on it, again without any sort of anything. I am not sure I want to call it scummy, could just be no effort.

Hello everyone! Finally, another mafia game.
Vote: math
OMGUS
No, I think we should instead Vote: MiX
Hello everyone! Finally, another mafia game.
Vote: math
Vote: physics
Physics?  I mean, it's a fantastic subject, but what does it have to do with this game?

Vote: math again. Hey, post some more!
I completely forgot about this game the past few days.  It's been a while since I've been in the forum regularly... I'll try to be around more often.
Vote: WCD

I think Shraeye is the only one I haven't played with before. Seems like very short posts, but enough to seem active. Very shifty... already voted at least 3 different players. Is this normal? Keeping my eye out.

I like my WCD vote (I think I'm still there). I'd also be happy to vote for gkrieg. Might be convinced to switch to Jack, but as has been said, he's such an easy mis-vote, it just doesn't seem right today. I likely won't vote joth, MiX, or Shrae today. No opinion yet on any others.

Well I can't offer much other advice I'm afraid. mathdude hasn't said anything that made me mad so far, which is usually how I can tell that he's town. But I'm not sure it makes him scum.

I think I've said this before, but I really don't understand why some people like to target lurkers so much.

1) Personally, when I'm scum, because it doesn't happen that often, I'm extra-excited to play the game. I can't imagine rolling scum and then just not posting.

2) When I'm scum and I'm trying to direct the exile, it's very tempting to choose a lurker because they're easy to exile and there's a decent chance they won't show up to defend themselves.

3) Lurking as scum isn't particularly strategic -- you're essentially giving up your chance to A) manipulate the town and (B) earn towncred. Why do that?

4) There's plenty of reasons to lurk as town -- IRL business, being overwhelmed by the size of the town and the lack of information, fear of being painted as scummy for what you say (though two of those could also apply to scum).

5) Scum has had a chance to strategize about their day 1 before the game even started, with the benefit of a partner to offer suggestions. They should be coming in more ready than anyone to engage.

So with all that working against it, why push for it? I'd say it has a worse-than-even chance of hitting scum. I suppose it has the side benefit of keeping active players in the game and removing players about whom it's hard to glean information.

I do think a serial killer is a bit more likely to lurk as they really need to stay under the radar. So this game has that going for it.

I don't think lurking is alignment-indicative. Well there might exist players for who it is but not generally. So I think you're misguided in thinking that lurkers have a worse-than-average chance of hitting scum. But they also don't have a better-than-average chance.

But I think if a lurker has the same average scumminess level in their post as an active player, it's always preferable to exile the lurker.

And one third of the scum in this game is a serial killer, so that's a pretty significant fraction.

It's the only reason I'm not yelling to shield math right now, he could easily be SK for that specific reason.

I take fausts position on lurking. It just happens...also certain people are prone to lurk not just because they have a lack of things to say, but because of timezones/availability.  I seem to recall Jimmm getting labeled a lurker quite often, well...timezones.

Wasn't for no reason, and it wasn't specifically sheeping Jack. As I read a few of your start-up posts, they seemed more forced than normal - not as natural as usual. Then I saw I wasn't the only one suspecting you, so rather than asking or commenting, I just voted to add pressure.

The problem with forced exile is that people don't actually need to commit to anything. Just let it happen.

I guess the advantage is any activity will be towards a good or better exile rather than just avoiding a no-exile, so stances still need to be given. For those able to be around at deadline that is.

I think Didds level of heing and hawing has been much higher, also has been put on display on a awkward way....feels performative.

And if Didds is borrowing the metric of scumShraeye is shraeye-lite, it really feels like this is didds-lite.  I was thinking about that before Didds came in with her analysis on her wagon.
Hmmm....  I was looking at the people voting for me...
And wow. The amount of effort/substance staggered me.

I've been thinking about partners.  Initially, Mix seemed like a great candidate. Still a good one. But Eddie is making a decent effort to supplant MiX.

I don't have a go-to didds-rule, but I'm saying Didds D1 behavior is more scum-oriented than town-oriented.

I think Didds level of heing and hawing has been much higher, also has been put on display on a awkward way....feels performative.

And if Didds is borrowing the metric of scumShraeye is shraeye-lite, it really feels like this is didds-lite.  I was thinking about that before Didds came in with her analysis on her wagon.
Hmmm....  I was looking at the people voting for me...
And wow. The amount of effort/substance staggered me.

So, thinking about the people who had voted for me is a staggering lack of effort. Compared to the rich analysis we are getting from whom?

And by performative you mean try to engage the game? And what am I hemming and hawing about? I am definitely prone to hemming and hawing, but I don't recall doing that here, much less in awkward display, which seems kind of snide.

I am not sure what you would classify as town-oriented, but if it depends on actually being town, then meet that criteria.

Someone with a better understanding of the setup tell me how we didn’t have 3 people die.

I assume it’s just two people killing the same person and the roleblocker.

But maybe kills aren’t simultaneous and a killer dies before killing?

I don’t know, and don’t want to read the thing again.

Post by: WestCoastDidds on July 24, 2022, 07:02:39 pm
I think so:

When a Cannibal night-kills someone, they take the body and put it in their larder, resulting in no role/alignment reveal to the town for that kill. The Cannibal who performed the kill learns the role/alignment reveal via their result PM.

If a Cannibal night-kills another Cannibal, they take all of the bodies their target had, learning all the role/alignment information their target knew. This will include their target's night-kill target from that same night, if applicable.

If more than one Cannibal night-kills the same target, they will all learn the target's role/alignment information. They will not learn that their target was killed multiple times.

If two Cannibals night-kill eachother, and are not in turn night-killed by yet another Cannibal, their role/alignment information, and that of all the bodies they possessed, is revealed to the town.

It's a long shot, given only 1 partner and only 1 game day to read from. But where would a partner want to be, as the day became more clear that Jack was likely to be exiled?

If it were me, I'd probably want to be either in joth's spot (early enough that it could still swing elsewhere and I'd look really clear if/when he did die). But off-wagon is another decent option - who if Shrae, MiX, or EFHW  (or gk) was most trying to get the vote off Jack?

Intentionally misleading? Or just clarifying how things work?

Standard rule 4 (original post in this thread), combined with cannibal mechanics (reposted by Didds a few posts ago) seem to indicate a carnival could definitely be dead and we wouldn't know, yet.

Rule 4 says things are resolved in the order they are received. One cannibal kills townie. Next cannibal kills cannibal 1 and gets their info. Because they didn't kill each other, we get no info.

... like gk just said!

So if he's telling the truth, then the Serial Killer will likely want him dead now? And we can't verify what gk says unless we kill him (or we kill a Serial Killer after they kill him).

And if he's lying, then he may be Goon or Serial Killer and Joseph was actually the Vig? And in this case, we'd definitely want him dead. Would he put such a target on his head with a fake claim, thinking we'd accept it?

Unvote I guess.

Although I am less than happy about it.

Is it a good idea to reveal the other named Town people? Is that a thing? I can’t decide.

In theory it’s

1 SK
1 RB
1 Weird Cop
1 Gkrieg
4 VT

And if we reveal our other 2 buddies, then they can’t get body-snatched by a SK.

Maybe just the RB reveals? They are a lot less helpful if both Mafia are truly dead.

I just don’t want a body snatch to happen.

I feel like keeping gkrieg alive to use him as a shot is more helpful than killing him today.

Ehhhh…

We definitely keep gkrieg alive.

The weird cop knows a result (cannibal or not).

The RB is our best hope for keeping gkrieg alive.

The SK can only kill one of them, though…. And gkrieg gets off his shot regardless, right?

I’ll have to think through if I think he’s lying but hot take is no.

My gut read is gkrieg is lying and he’s a goon.

Just because I think if you’re the other goon right now you’re feeling like things went pretty badly for you and you’re ready to try a Hail Mary.

But idk. It’s gutsy. And there’s basically no way he pulls this when there’s a counterclaim out there, so he would have to have killed the vig to be claiming now which is long odds.

So on reflection he’s probably telling the truth. Probably.

If gkrieg is lying he shot the town vig, I guess. Regardless, the SK kinda has to kill them, so that solves itself.

If the count is right, then we have 3 named townies and 3 VT alive? That corners the SK immediately, in what should be a town win.

Voted Jack early and without reservations: faust, WCD
Expressed reticence but still voted Jack early: joth, Eddie
Expressed reticence but voted Jack eventually: Joseph
Explicitly against the Jack exile: EFHW, Jack
Didn’t express a sentiment but voted Jack eventually: Jimmmm
Didn’t express a sentiment, didn’t vote Jack: mathdude, shraeye, MiX

Looking at the day end, Joseph is the most obvious partner to me, which I guess gives gkrieg some town points.

Damn, if gk is telling the truth then we’re just SK hunting and this wagon analysis is considerably less useful. And if go is lying he’s scum so we’re still SK hunting. Unless gkrieg is the serial killer and he’s lying, which we do have to consider. But I think we can wait at least one night before we go he’s down that rabbit hole.

SK wouldn’t shoot Joseph though. Because killing the other faction off this early is bad for them.

Even (and dare I say especially) the towniest players could be the SK. How are we supposed to catch them?

I mean, if your SK test is “stayed under the radar” I think MiX and shraeye fit the bill. They both played D1 pretty nonconfrontational and stayed out of all the major drama, which is not really on-brand for either of them.

Ha! I suppose it's possible that gkrieg is the SK, yeah. This setup really hides mechanical information well.

How do we catch the SK? Well...I guess we just have to read D1 again.

I kind of want gkrieg to be lying because it's such a cool fakeclaim. But if Joseph was the vig, goon!gkrieg would be better off staying quiet. Having spoken up now makes him a probable SK target.

gkrieg - How did you decide that giving us the information you had was worth dying for?

Title: Re: Mafia 138 - Hungry Hungry Hippo Mafia - Day 1 has Started!
Post by: EFHW on July 25, 2022, 06:39:17 pm
Unvote I guess.

Although I am less than happy about it.

Is it a good idea to reveal the other named Town people? Is that a thing? I can’t decide.

In theory it’s

1 SK
1 RB
1 Weird Cop
1 Gkrieg
4 VT

And if we reveal our other 2 buddies, then they can’t get body-snatched by a SK.

Maybe just the RB reveals? They are a lot less helpful if both Mafia are truly dead.

I just don’t want a body snatch to happen.

I feel like keeping gkrieg alive to use him as a shot is more helpful than killing him today.

Ehhhh…

I'm trying to make sense out of this post.
- What would be the benefit to town of a claim? Why can't you decide?
- What is a body snatch?

I was confused by the 1 gkrieg thing, with no mention of goon or vig, but now I get it that he's one of the two options and the other is dead.

There is some reason to consider exiling gkrieg, since goon!gkrieg would have an nk to kill another town. We may have the assistance of the RB, but in blocking gkrieg they lose a chance to help find the SK. Vig!gkrieg might want to shoot, too, but that is less worrisome given that he'd be making his decision in light of town's best interests. We don't generally exile vigs to keep them from shooting!

In the end, I agree we should not exile gkrieg today. He put himself in the SK crosshairs by claiming, and a solo goon would not do that. Would a drunk!solo!goon?

Town claiming would avoid a body snatch (kinda).

A body snatch is a cannibal killing a town PR and claiming to be that PR (since we can’t disprove it due to no flip, and they know they killed that PR, so so counter). Effective snatching the body and pretending to be that PR.

Claiming now means the only possible bodysnatches are from if Jimmmmm was a PR or if Joseph was the real Vig.

In future days it’s much more foggy. Each day increases the likelihood that claims are nothings.

And yeah. I can’t decide. Half of me thinks Joth/MiX are into something. Half of me thinks we almost solve the game with claims.

We're making teams? I'm on your team.

Really though, I don't think claiming does much other than expose PRs. A little coordination could happen, but then scum/SK could know better how to counter... at night and with claims.

And each cannibal (including gk, whether good or bad) now has a safe claim that cannot be countered, even if it is just VT. We know each got a kill last night, with 3 night deaths.

At least next game day, we should only have a max of 3 deaths (exile and 2 night kills), so there should still be 5 or more around then.

I can see where we would have a harder time exiling a claimed PR than a claimed VT. But an uncountered claimed PR is automatically suspicious whereas a fakeclaiming VT is just one in a group of other people claiming VT.  Nothing to draw attention to themselves. And that issue isn't solved by claiming PRs now.

I like this "body snatching" term. It seems very apt!

My assumption is gkrieg is telling the truth.  That's not a winning play by Goon#2.

So we're hunting SK...yeah, claims...the RB is really not helpful right now because of what UncleE says. But it's not super helpful as a named town either, due to the body-snatch effect.  Named town is much less powerful in this setup; it's a neat setup.  But I don't think UncleE is correct about weird cop; I'd want to have results before I claimed.  Claiming just to be a named person isn't as strong as claiming with results.

I think I've convinced myself that gk has to be telling the truth. There are a couple edge cases where he could be lying, but it does seem too risky to be worth it.

And for roles, hindsight will always be better. But getting more info is probably better, imo, than revealing power roles early here... even with the higher risk of body-snatching.

RB can choose whether they block the same if they still think that person may be SK, or try a new target and hope to survive both N2 and N3 if needed. Cop can get info for another person. And gk can try to find SK... since RB shouldn't target him, if his kill doesn't go through, he's as good as the cop now (except a wrong guess kills a town).

Would it make sense for gk to announce his target before deadline? Then cop and RB won't double-up on his target (though they could still both hit the same person). And even if he does target the SK and the SK targets him because of it, then we win anyway.

This is possible, but the number of deaths tonight should help us sort it out, hopefully. There's still the chance of manipulation by him if he's lying. But if we got all killing roles dead except him on D1 and N1, AND he pulled this huge gamble, he almost deserves the win already. I think it's much more likely, and in our best interest, to assume he's telling the truth... at least for today.

There's also the possibility that he's SK and killed Vig. Other scum doesn't counter, or he's exposed. Gk gambles that we or he finds other scum before scum kills him 2 nights in a row. But again... a risky edge case, and better for us to just assume he's telling the truth today.

He can't be SK who found scum (who didn't kill Vig), or Vig would counterclaim.

If he's scum and killed Vig (opposite of what he claimed), then SK likely kills him tonight, if we don't find and exile SK today. So this isn't likely either.

I’m firmly on team Eddie/Joth now!

Why is Eddie/Joth a team? What made you want to join it?

These are the folks instrumental in exiling Jack. They are my town team. Either of them not joining the wagon would have made traction on exiling scum way harder.

This really doesn't compute. If Eddie/Joth are the folks most instrumental in exiling Jack, you can be HAPPY with their actions (I am) but in terms of whether their actions make them GoodPeople...their actions really just means "They are very much not Jack's partner."  Which means they are either SK or Town, each having equal incentive/happiness at exiling a Goon on Day1.

The only world where Jack's partner is somehow still alive is when it is gkreig going crrrrazy with a gambit.  So, you're saying "I am sure Eddie/joth are on my team because they are not Jack's partner....really doesn't compute with the statements you made here"

Eh, I’ll just claim

I’m the vig

I killed Joseph, who was the other scum. He killed faust, who was VT.

Also, a little DAMA.

Ohhhh…..spicy!

So, we just need to find the SK?

Sorry, I’ve dropped the ball on this game.

I will say that I don’t think I was at risk of being exiled very soon, so I wouldn’t take the risk of claiming vig as the SK. At least not right now. I claimed early because I act as an SK cop. As long as im not roleblocked, if my kill does not go through, I’ve shot the SK.

The SK can kill me, but then you obviously know I was the vig.

I was sheeping joth since I liked his argument for me and shraeye being scummy, and I was waiting for shraeye to post. The comment to myself was just that me voting for someone while sheeping a reason that implies I'm scummy is something I tend to do a lot as scum too.

Off your number one: this is snide. It may not be relevant to you, but it is to me and I get to determine my own consequences.

I think Didds level of heing and hawing has been much higher, also has been put on display on a awkward way....feels performative.

And if Didds is borrowing the metric of scumShraeye is shraeye-lite, it really feels like this is didds-lite.  I was thinking about that before Didds came in with her analysis on her wagon.
Hmmm....  I was looking at the people voting for me...
And wow. The amount of effort/substance staggered me.

#2: magnitude and cause- your cause is unknown to me. Magnitude is that I have you been your sole focus since mid-way through D1, and all of today.

#3: mindset and futility of words. I think Joth summarized well. We disagree on what an SK would think. I have no experience being an SK so I am just guessing. You decide the way that I think about is wrong and therefore scummy, so it really doesn't matter what I say.  I will agree that I don't know your mindset, but but can be surmised based on these posts.

This really doesn't compute. If Eddie/Joth are the folks most instrumental in exiling Jack, you can be HAPPY with their actions (I am) but in terms of whether their actions make them GoodPeople...their actions really just means "They are very much not Jack's partner."  Which means they are either SK or Town, each having equal incentive/happiness at exiling a Goon on Day1.

I never said that no cases was the SK-way. The issue came up D1, where Didds made a post that seemed wagon-analysis-ish but had much less content than, forexample, joth's similar post.

In Didd's rebuttal of my general suspicion, she said "despite me finding scum" which indicates a mitigating factor to what came before...so now my current issue is that finding scum doesn't mitigate her previous posts.

On another note:
ARE you the SK??

I'm not sure what you're getting at here, but I'll answer anyway. I mean, I know my role and I'm not SK. So I know I'm not most likely to be it. So his logic is flawed.

There are exactly 2 players in this game who know it's not me - they are me and the actual SK. For all others still alive, the best argument gou can use is "gut feel". And if you feel that, you're wrong.

Conclusion is wrong =/=> logic is flawed

It was more a comment about grammar than logic. The claim could have been "I have a gut feel" or "I think he's most likely" - an opinion or a read. But he went all MiX-style, saying a definitive statement that I'm most likely, as if there were actual logic behind it.

Anyway, this has been a pointless distraction of a conversation. Let's move on.

MiX, you seem to have been quieter than usual. Trying not to slip in your words?

To clarify, "then" means "when I'm revealed to be SK". It doesn't mean "after all" or something. I feel like "then" can have 2 meanings there.

So that's X-2? I'd really rather not claim. There should be at least a few of you out there already who have picked up on things. MiX, I'm surprised you haven't. or was that purely OMGUS? Being the 3rd and putting at X-2 is not a good idea.

If anyone puts me at X-1 before we figure out if I should claim or we should just start putting votes somewhere else more reasonable... such a person is likely the non-town we are looking to find. We're about 48 hours to deadline now, I believe, so there is time to figure this out.

Why skip Shraeye - that seems to be the next best consensus? And while we're at it, why skip joth and you? I get skipping EFHW if there's hesitation by a few people. I get the others on your list.

WCD is not scum or SK.

There's 1 other person out there who may have useful info... but if they aren't under pressure, then it's likely worth holding their info and identity for at least 1 more day.

So, why do people scumread them? I'm not asking why you're voting shraeye (it's EoD so that's whatever), just, if you have a scumread, why is that?

Eddie, this is left over from Day 1. Can you respond?

Science.

Is that really the end of this conversation...?

I kinda want uncle to be SK so I can OMGUS without negative consequences, but I'm not seeing anything out of the ordinary. I mean, other than the quoted post. But when your meta is not explaining your reads...

Shraeye has been a bit aggressive,  and I seem to remember him doing that as scum back in the old days. Kind of like what happened to Didds. I suspected him and his response really stung. Something about Batman.

MIX, Shraeye, and EFHW…

Okay, so if Gkrieg, Math, and WCD are all off the table (assuming we’re believing gkrieg and math, obvi)…

Among who’s left, whose the SK?

Well, joth and eddie are the only other 2. Joth is good at staying off all our radars. Eddie is just eddie - I find him hard to read.

Tomorrow, we will hopefully have enough info to sort this whole thing out. At this point, there's a lot of gut feel still.

This is unfortunate.

We’ll be able to kill scum tomorrow, though.

Right?

Probably?

Anyway. I’m going to sleep. Might not wake up until after deadline.

Best of luck, folks.

This is the second time Eddie said this and he didn't answer my question about the first time. Then goes to sleep without changing his vote despite implying strongly that he thinks Jack is town. What's the message here?

Eddie, this is left over from Day 1. Can you respond?

Science.

Is that really the end of this conversation...?

I kinda want uncle to be SK so I can OMGUS without negative consequences, but I'm not seeing anything out of the ordinary. I mean, other than the quoted post. But when your meta is not explaining your reads...

Now I would reread joth, but I'm out of time. I might be here during deadline, or not.

Any conclusions?

Well, in the absence of a lock-post, we might as well talk in twilight. I do suspect the SK will likely target a known PR - either gk if he's telling the truth about being a Vig, or me (and I've intentionally not said which of the other 2 roles I am), rather than gambling at finding the final PR.
Title: Re: Mafia 138 - Hungry Hungry Hippo Mafia - Day 1 has Started!
Post by: mathdude on July 31, 2022, 05:20:44 pm
Either me or the other PR have a direct ability to find the other cannibal... and the other of us has an indirect ability (if the expected number of night kills doesn't happen, one possible explanation is RB... and alternatively if the expected number of kills happens, then the RB effectively confirms another non-killer townie). Also, Vig has the ability to win the game if they find the final killer.

... of course, all this assumes the game isn't over already. That would be quite the win!

Do remember that after a lot of bluster, it all came down to MiX/shraeye. I found that odd.

Shraeye's hot/cold takes: gkrieg is believable in his claim. mathdude is not as believable.  EFHW is least likely of the non-claimers to be SK.  Didds is unlikely as well.

I can't speak for others, but I know it doesn't give me any reassurance. You are one of my possible targets tonight... I'm still debating between you and a couple others. It's a combination of wanting to maximize the chance of finding non-town, between picking the most scummy and trying to not double up on what other PRs might pick... while also not coordinating targets in thread, so the SK can't plan around it.

So is there any way this isn't just game over?

gkrieg is either the vig or the SK. We vote EFHW, then we either win or vote gkrieg.

Obviously if the roleblocker blocked gkrieg for some reason they should claim. And also explain why they did that.

We could do a mass claim just for fun, but I can't see any way, other than an absolutely mad roleblocker, that the SK isn't either EFHW or gkrieg. And the lack of a third kill just confirms gkrieg's story even more.

Sort of boring but vote: EFHW

I think so. If gkrieg comes back dead today, and math has cleared someone else, then the other PR claims, we’d have 3 or 4 confirmed town and it would be tough to wiggle. But with math dead, we get no more info from him and now it’s just an argument about if gkrieg is lying or not. Or if the fear was that math checked her, a guilty result would been game over. Better odds there than the POE on the other scenario, right? And she wouldn’t have known she’d have been gkrieg’s target when she decided.

That all works, right? (I haven’t had coffee yet!)
