Title: Apparently this is where people talk when it's night
Post by: popsofctown on May 31, 2012, 09:04:17 pm
Not because I'm itching to do anything immediately, but if I wind up modding Mafia IV soon the way I ended up modding Mafia I (for lack of a qualified volunteer), I want as much advance notice as I can get.

Content to watch Mafia II and III?  Eager to do another open setup, eager to do a closed, eager to do a large?  After you've played one mafia game I think you can pretty much play as advanced a game as you want to, though a good, balanced, fun, closed theme is harder to design than a more normal game.

Just probing interest here.  Now that there's a forum games section you can play Resistance or maybe a paper and pencil RPG here.

I would play another game. I prefer knowing what roles are available, but but either way is fine. Large group or small group is fine.

You impress me, Robz. This just goes to show how many forum games the human body is capable of playing. I think this i my last mafia game for a while...

I would be interested to try modding a Mafia game, but I'm kinda worried about over-extending (i.e., modding a game WHILE also participating in two games).  I'm not a Robz.  :)
Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: popsofctown on May 31, 2012, 09:29:37 pm
I would recommend not modding and playing 2.  What inevitably happens is you put less effort into the games you're playing and the games you are -playing- in suffer.

2. There is to be NO personal communication outside of the forum postings unless your role PM specifically allows it. Mafia members may communicate at night and during the confirmation stage.
Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: ftl on May 31, 2012, 10:43:28 pm
It's a little inappropriate to come here, outside of the game, and make posts about whether you're town in the game or not. Discussion related to what role you are should stay in the game thread.

I think 2 Mafia's and a Resistance is my limit. I'm actually human, unlike Robz. If/When Mafia-II ends, I would very much be up for Mafia-IV. My preference is closed, with boundaries. I don't need to know how MANY roles are present, or WHAT roles are present... I just want to know a list of what COULD be present. I know, it's not *quite* closed Mafia, but I think I would enjoy it more. At least I know WHAT to look for/expect. I'm not familiar enough with the game to just assume ANYTHING could be out there, because I don't know what ANYTHING could be. As far as size goes, well, I don't know. I've enjoyed the closeness of the players in Mafia-II (town and Mafia alike!), but find the speed and spread out nature of Mafia-III to be a nice change and interesting one. So I think I would be happy with either.

Well, now that Mafia II has come to its conclusion (amazing game by Galzria and Robz there), I feel better about having time to moderate Mafia IV.

Here's the setup I was contemplating.  I browsed the Mafiascum wiki for interesting options, and this jumped out at me for reasons I'll explain below:



And the role descriptions:

-------

Mafia Goon
Welcome, [Player Name]. You are a Mafia Goon, along with your partner, [Player Name].
Abilities:

Factional communication: During the night phase you may talk with your partner here [QuickTopic link].
Factional kill: Each night phase, one of you or your partner may perform the factional kill.
Win condition:

You win when the other scumteam is eliminated and you control 50% of the town or nothing can prevent this from occurring.


Werewolf
Welcome, [Player Name]. You are a Werewolf, along with your partner, [Player Name].
Abilities:

Factional communication: During the night phase you may talk with your partner here [QuickTopic link].
Factional kill: Each night phase, one of you or your partner may perform the factional kill.
Win condition:

You win when the other scumteam is eliminated and you control 50% of the town or nothing can prevent this from occurring.


Town Mason
Welcome, [Player Name], you are a Town Mason, along with your partners, [Player Name] and [Player Name].
Abilities:

Factional communication: During the night phase you may talk with your partners here [QuickTopic link].
You are confirmed town to your partners, and them to you.
Win condition:

You win when all threats to the town have been eliminated and there is at least one town player alive.


Vanilla Townie
Welcome, [Player Name], you are a Vanilla Townie.
Abilities:

Your weapon is your vote, you have no night actions.
Win condition:

You win when all threats to the town have been eliminated and there is at least one town player alive.

--------

I like the looks of this because it sets the focus squarely on communication, rather than power roles.  And I like the presence of multiple factions - it fits the theme I have in mind very nicely.

Thoughts?  Pros/cons?  Interest?  I'll wait to start a Mafia IV thread until this evening (EDT) at the earliest, so folks can weigh in with their comments.  Thanks!

Post by: Voltgloss on June 01, 2012, 12:05:15 pm
Also, for those who would have joined Mafia III but decided against it because of the publicly available discussion thread, I am thinking Mafia IV would have no public discussion thread (not even a quicktopic).  Personally, I don't actually care much either way;  but I think it's better for this growing Dominion Mafia community to have both "public discussion" and "no public discussion" games available, so people can choose which they prefer.

But if people feel strongly against this, let me know (and let me know why)!

Post by: theorel on June 01, 2012, 02:46:03 pm
I've been following some of the Mafia threads, and it's pulled me out of lurking to wanting to play.

So, regardless of set up for the next game...I'm in.

Fair enough, pops.  Just so I know - would this also extend to a setup with Town, Mafia, and a Serial Killer?  (I was toying with that setup as well.)
Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: Axxle on June 01, 2012, 02:56:57 pm
I'd be interested in playing another game, although closed setups sound like they'd be somewhat overwhelming.
Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: Voltgloss on June 01, 2012, 03:01:55 pm
I was thinking about other variants that would fit my theme idea, and here's another option I wouldn't mind running - especially if we can't get up to 12 participants.  This one requires only 7.

Setup
- 2 Mafia Goons or 2 Werewolves
- 3 Townies
- 1 Cop
- 1 Seer

Mechanics
- Daystart
- Mafia Goons or Werewolves are chosen randomly by the mod pregame
- Cop gets results in the form of Mafia/Not Mafia
- Seer gets results in the form of Werewolf/Not Werewolf

The idea being, you have two investigative roles, each able to suss out only one type of scum.  Only one type of scum will actually be in the game.  But it's randomly chosen WHICH type of scum that is.

Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: popsofctown on June 01, 2012, 03:03:12 pm
No, it doesn't extend to Serial killers.

That might seem inconsistent, but from personal experience the psychology of multiball much harder to catch during the daygame, but Serial killers don't.  Serial killers can often express genuine interest in finding mafia but tend to give off truckloads of survivalist tells.  Mafia in an SK game tend to get caught SK hunting, which looks different than scumhunting because SKs tend to be so different.


EDIT: I've played the open setup you just listed.  I was mafia.  We lost because we tried a gambit that only failed because a townie forgot to claim in his first post (it was complicated but anyway it was a bit like shooting a pool ball and missing your target and knocking a different good one in).
It's not my favorite setup because of the investigative role focus.  I think a semiopen would be a good idea (that's a closed setup with all the possible roles listed)

So we'd basically have Cop and a Naive Cop? http://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?title=Cop
Although it'd be slightly different since the Naive Cop would know that they're one once a Mafia/Werewolf gets killed.
Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?

Naive cops have unconfirmed sanity, so it's really another thing entirely..

Post by: Galzria on June 01, 2012, 03:42:36 pm
As I said in post #10 there, and Pops gave me the correct terminology for, I would be very open to a semi-open game. We don't know what's active in the game, but have a list of what could be. I will happily play with multiple scum factions, but probably prefer just one. And the more people the merrier I think.
Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: Voltgloss on June 01, 2012, 04:24:59 pm
It's not my original flavor idea, but looking over the possibilities, I think I've got a workable list for a semi-open 13-player game.  The role list I'm looking at using is:

- Vanilla Townie
- Cop
- One-Shot Cop
- Doctor
- One-Shot Doctor
- Vigilante
- One-Shot Vigilante
- Roleblocker
- One-Shot Roleblocker
- Innocent Child
- Mason
- Mafia Goon
- Mafia Godfather
- Mafia Roleblocker
- Serial Killer

Cop, Doctor, and Serial Killer we're all now familiar with.
Vigilante is a Townie who can kill someone at night.
Innocent Child is a Townie who is publicly confirmed by the moderator to be a Townie (at the start of Day 1).
Masons are Townies who know each others' identities and can communicate at night via PM.
Roleblockers are like Jailkeepers, except they don't protect their target from being killed.  They just stop the target from using their nighttime ability.
Godfathers are Mafia who, when investigated by a Cop, appear to be Town.
And a "one-shot" role means they can only use their power once during the game.

You just don't want the Jester in so you don't have to break your claim streak of BEING one! (Not that I entirely disagree with you about that! ;))

No Jesters, I promise.  :)

You mean Bus Driver?  Yep, it's a real role.  Switches two people around so that night actions targeting one actually target the other.  So if Mafia Galzria tries to kill Robz, and Cop Tables tries to investigate Jotheonah, and Bus Driver O decides to drive Robz and Jotheonah... then Galzria kills Jotheonah and Tables investigates Robz.

http://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?title=Bus_Driver

It's interesting, but a bit daunting to include in my first moderated game.  So, no, no Bus Drivers here.
Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: popsofctown on June 01, 2012, 04:55:34 pm
That's a good semi-open list.


I prefer the Innocent Child variant that lets the Innocent Child PM the mod whenever he wants the mod to confirm his Innocence.  It's not too powerful and is far more interesting.

I had a Mafia Driver, your version brings up some questions:

Can mafia kill other mafia?
O is Mafia. O Kills Voltglass, but Voltglass and O were driven.

Post by: Thisisnotasmile on June 01, 2012, 04:59:46 pm
To be honest I'm probably going to sit out until we get to games with crazy roles for everyone. I much prefer messing with people and trying to work things out than writing essays about how X's essay about how suspicious Y is of Z make him suspicious and actually Z isn't suspicious becuase he wrote a good essay about Y's suspicions of himself because of how he wanted to get the game moving by casting random suspicion just to provoke a reaction which backfired.

I did see that variant, pops.  If you find it makes for a more interesting role, I'm all for it.  Thanks.

O is Mafia. O Kills Voltglass, but Voltglass and O were driven.

It's questions like that that make me want to not use Bus Drivers in my first game.  :)  But if I were modding and the question came up, I think I'd rule as follows:

- Mafia can inadvertently kill other mafia.  So if O (Mafia) kills Voltgloss (Town), and Robz (Bus Driver) drives Voltgloss and Galzria (Mafia), then O will inadvertently kill Galzria.

- BUT, mafia can't inadvertently kill themselves, based on the overarching rule that a role can't target themselves under any circumstances.  So if O kills Voltgloss, and Robz drives Voltgloss and O, O doesn't inadvertently kill himself.  He just gets a "no result."

That's my gut reaction, anyway.

To be honest I'm probably going to sit out until we get to games with crazy roles for everyone. I much prefer messing with people and trying to work things out than writing essays about how X's essay about how suspicious Y is of Z make him suspicious and actually Z isn't suspicious becuase he wrote a good essay about Y's suspicions of himself because of how he wanted to get the game moving by casting random suspicion just to provoke a reaction which backfired.

Fair enough, TINAS.  I can see the appeal of a crazy-roles game, I just don't feel comfortable modding one until I have at least one "normal" game under my belt.  One question:  for crazy-roles games, which works better - semi-open or closed?  In a closed game I can see players making up roles for them to have, which definitely fits under the "crazy" category, but also seems really daunting.
Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: popsofctown on June 01, 2012, 05:21:06 pm
You mean a closed game with nonstandard roles where a mafia is about to get lynched and he claims a role that he himself made up on the spot?  And then someone else gets lynched because they want to keep the town Time Traveler alive?

I don't even consider that a "crazy" game.
Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: Thisisnotasmile on June 01, 2012, 05:26:21 pm
No. I've never played a "closed" game in my life and think the idea of one is stupid. It would be open or at least semi-open.

I suggest making a truly Dominion-themed Mafia game, where the roles are renamed.  The roleblocker would be a Moat.  The Masons can be Conspirators.  You could add in Jester and JoaT (someone linked it in another thread and I liked it -- a character with multiple one-shot abilties).

I would be interested but I think I'll be overwhelmed with Mafia III, unless I die early.

I vote no more than 2 simultaneous games for any individuals.  If a 3rd game started up, I'd be cautiously interested, and I'd be 100% fine with a 3rd game that didn't involve anyone from M4, but I agree that seeing the core of O, RobZ, Galzria, J in EVERY GAME is crazy.

other than the awesome name, nothing is set in stone, so please express game set up preferences. Who would play in a role madness game? A bastard mod game? (I'm just gauging interest, don't worry) (And if I do a bastard game, I promise it will be labelled as such)

As you know, I am in for anything.

I had expected that games with MORE people would be better, because that's how it works IRL. On the forum, I'm not sure that's the case, and I sort of miss the more intimate feel of MI and MII. However, I would be loathe to turn away anybody interested in playing (especially because I might get shown the door at some point....). As for roles, whatever, but I do like knowing what could be in the game.

I'm interested in having games with Masons and multiple Mafia families.  I guess these things (especially the latter) only really work in bigger games... hum.

Might also be neat to have some bulletproof people.

I am really enjoying the closed setup!  I like knowi that ther could be an arsonist, or a CPR doctor, or a nk immune miller vig.

I would play role madness, or bastard mod

I am in favor of shorter days, even if it is stressful.

I meant what I said about PMing everyone Jester as their role just to see what would happen.

Last weekend I played Mafia IRL with a bunch of friends, assigning roles using playing cards.  We'd already played a few games.  Several players were a bit miffed because they still hadn't gotten anything other than Vanilla Townie and they ended up swapping cards with each other, seeing they were all VT.  Of course that's not fair to other players, so we would redeal.  And the same thing would happen again.  We redealt something like 5 times.  Others started getting fed up so they finally settled down and accepted their role.  That game was particularly bad for the town.  Everyone who died came up VT.  They didn't realize until the very end that I had dealt everyone VT cards.

The best part was how confused one guy was after he'd gotten lynched.  It was night phase and he was looking around trying to find the Mafia (and other roles) as I called out to them.  It took him far longer than should have been necessary to realize I was just making it up.  ;D

This is an experiment that I think every group of regular mafia players runs eventually. I remember when we did it with my friends. I was unaware (only the moderator knew, of course), and I died during the gamr. The moderator told me after I was dead.

Eventually, there were 3 people left. They were utterly, utterly, furiously confused. They took forever to decide who to lynch. They just had no idea. When they found out, they were beside themselves with anger.

Anyway, this solidified in my mind that somehow, members of the mafia do give themselves away. Because in this game, with actually no mafia, the all-town group actually did have a noticeably harder time deciding who to kill.

No, whenever I play IRL, we DO NOT reveal roles when people die. So when there are 3 left, all they know is there has to be 1 mafia and 2 non-mafia.

I'd say this way is actually much, much, much better. But for online play, it just makes things way too difficult for the town.

I vote we keep it at 2 mafia games simultaneously at once.

I have no horse in the race, since I've sworn myself off of forum Mafia games, but I don't see the need to place a cap on the number of games. These posts no longer show up on the news feed, right? So the increased traffic doesn't interfere with non-Mafia players. It would just increase the number of new threads in the subforum.

I could definitely see a limit of the number of games a player can participate in, but even that should probably be up to the individual on whether he can handle it or not. Robz apparently is a multi-tasking fool. Even then, I'm sure that his games suffer a little bit, but he seems to be handling it just fine. I suppose that's one benefit of playing by forum; you aren't under so much pressure to respond right away.

It would seem that if there are enough players interested in a new game, there's no reason to cap it at two simultaneous games. Since each "day" could last up to 2 weeks, it'd be unfortunate to have people waiting in the wings for so long.

I am curious about the difference between opening with a 4/3 domino vs. a 5/2 domino. I imagine it isn't especially impactful but I'm a newbie when it comes to Dominos.

Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: Grujah on June 08, 2012, 11:34:47 am
Well I guess 5/2 open is more beneficial. As first domino to be laid down is the highest double, there is higher chance that it will be 5/5 than 4/4,3/3,2/2 so you have highest chance to chain with it.

Well, actually, for before mentioned reason, 5/2 are generally more worn out so 4/3 tend to have sharper edges which helps in the second stage of game, where the goal is to use pieces that you connected to dismember your opponents.

I think from here on out, I'm more in favor of slightly smaller games. That way if we need replacements, we haven't tapped all of our resources. It also makes it easier on potential replacements as there will be less to read.

I would hate for anybody to be left out however, so if it were going to be 2 or 3 running games of 9, I would be good with that.

http://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?title=Fire_and_Ice

So wait, @1-1-1:

Town votes nolynch or is suicidal; neither Fire nor Ice can be lynched

Iff night:
Fire and Ice kill eachother, because targeting town either is no NK (both target) or they lose (other mafia kills them)

So fire and ice lynch town and live happily ever after?

Medial Mafia seems fun (maybe a bit too chaotic though). And everyone is a PR so its cool (unless you get Weak doctor, that sucks  ;D).

Seconded. 

Weak Doctor doesn't necessarily suck.  If you have some way of leaving a tell during the Day as to who you're targeting, and then mysteriously die in the night, the Town could put together the pieces and figure out the person you targeted was Mafia.

It really is chaotic though.  Which is probably a good thing to shake up us over-analyzers.  ;)

There is no investigative role. You are either Mafia, or a Doctor. Mass claiming does nothing. You don't even know what type of Doctor you are.
Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: popsofctown on June 10, 2012, 04:29:28 pm
Is doctor type revealed on death?  If so, the weak doc is still investigative, always is.  You would want to chart out everyone's night actions to produce maximum information.  It's painful. 

If doctor type isn't revealed on death then... ok, I guess it's kind of like playing Halo on Fiesta mode (random weapon).

Even if doctor type isn't revealed on death, using a chart with each player's targetting can enhance odds of finding scum.  Possibly even "solve" for scum 100% of the time
Title: Re: Any void left by Mafia I?
Post by: Voltgloss on June 10, 2012, 04:47:02 pm
I think doctor type isn't revealed on death. 

I can see the issue of Medical Mafia devolving into a chart-the-night-actions logic problem, though.  Which is interesting in its own right but not a typical game of Mafia.

All the Robzs will make their initial votes and never change them, thus making it impossible for a majority of Robzs to vote for a single Robz to lynch, thus resulting in No Lynch. So then the Mafia Robzs will kill the Townie Robzs one by one.

It occurs to me that since everyone has a night action in M-V there's not much reason to wait the full 48 hours.  The usual reason is just because you can check who's been online and potentially figure out mafia, right?

Do you mean ran out of time as in you had to leave for an appointment and resigned?  Or that the time bug popped up and Frisk forced resignation for pondering a Pawn for more than 10 seconds and then threw his frisky head back and laughed in deep, raucous bellows?

No sign ups yet!  Will make a thread later.  Again, it will be most likely after MVI ends, because that one has a whopping 19 people and will probably take a lot of focus on its own.

All roles are Dominion themed and have -mostly- new abilities, at least compared to what we've seen so far on f.ds.

I'm still considering adding more roles to the ones I've already thought up...  :P

Walking by, eHalcyon noticed Ozle conversing at the entrance to one of the more popular joints in town.  However, the word was that this particular bar and lounge only opened its doors to the public after the sun went down.  What was Ozle doing there when it was still so bright out?  Who was he talking to?

Curiosity piqued, eHalcyon approached.  Despite the glaring sun, the world suddenly seemed darker.  Grujah was there, hair frizzled and eyebrows still not grown back from his last crazy experiment.  What was he testing this time? 

Close by was Insomniac, though it was hard to recognize him with his face all wrapped up.  Did he fancy himself some sort of ninja?

And there was Galzria, discussing windows of all things!  Was he a thief planning a heist?  Maybe a stained glass enthusiast?

Something foul was afoot, and eHalcyon had no intention of getting involved with such shady characters.  He backed away slowly before this strange company could notice that he had spotted their clandestine meeting...

As mentioned upthread, I would like to host a newbie-friendly mafia game after M-IV ends.  It would use the standard 2-of-4 setup used in M-I and M-II, and player slots will if at all possible go to new players or players who have only participated in 1 mafia game to date.  How to people feel about that running concurrently with eHalcyon's planned role-madness* game?  I'm kinda anticipating there will be very little overlap between the player bases - maybe no more than 3 "experienced" players, assuming enough newbies and near-newbies sign up?

*Incidentally, I fully concur with your NOT labeling it Bastard Mafia.  Let's see some serious role madness up ins.  :)

I would probably think we have one normal, one BM and one other going on a time only, otherwise people will need to spend thier whole lives on the forum just to keep up!

I hear you... but on the other hand it (along with doctor) is one of the iconic Mafia roles.  For newbies, might it be best for their first game to include a cop (or at least have a cop as one of the possible roles) so they can get used to thinking about cop (and doctor, and jailkeeper) interactions?

From a pure power-balance perspective I agree and would be inclined to switch Cop with, say, Tracker.  But I am worried Tracker will be a bit on the complicated side for new players.

Yeah, and the trouble is, people will sign up before they die just in case they die early, and they dont want to have to wait around for another one.

Cop shouldn't be an iconic role, because it's a bad role.

Broken setups set a bad precedent because they reward different kinds of play.  No-lynching in follow the cop is just something you can't do in real setups.  etc.

You could keep it from being a bad example of what comes later by making the cop unprotectable so that the setup is less gameable, something that's common in advanced games.  But it makes more sense just to not include the role at all.

Honestly, I've got enough other stuff to pay attention to. I don't have the energy to see stuff like that, and honestly it's just as likely to be harmful to town as helpful.

As a mod I'd be against cryptography just because it will allow the mafia to converse during the day.

FWIW the steganography (I did not know this word before) didn't come into play during the actual game.  I was prepared to pull it out if anyone counterclaimed, though it would probably be easy to write off as a Mafia trick.  I think it was a fun thing to do once.  I wouldn't try it again, especially because of all the WIFOM that could go with it.

I'm against encryption.  Axxle just described something with Ozle in MI; I would be against that.  If a group is supposed to have daychat, they'll get it.  Encryption is just a way around that rule.  OTOH, it would be interesting if daychat was disallowed EXCEPT for encryption.  And then everyone is overanalyzing every post trying to break the codes. :P

We had codewords for rolecop investigation results with yuma and voltgloss in in MIII. At the time I didnt realize it could be scummy (see what I did there), but now that I'm less busy with being amazed at someone having the creativity to suggest it, yeah, definitely seems iffy. There should be a clear ruling about this imo* (and I would prefer for it to be prohibited, not passionate about the issue though). I sort of want to apologize for us three although the town won anyways and I doubt it decreased anyones enjoyment in the game.

*If its already in the rules, I would suggest some clarification or rewording because I read the rules and didnt realize we were breaking them and I doubt yuma or Voltgloss were doing it intentionally either.

*If its already in the rules, I would suggest some clarification or rewording because I read the rules and didnt realize we were breaking them and I doubt yuma or Voltgloss were doing it intentionally either.

What were the codewords?  Didn't notice it during the game.

But I think that that was actually against the rules.  IIRC, there was indeed a rule against encryption (I thought about it before doing my JAILKEEPER acronym) and I would say that using codewords is encryption.

How do people feel about steganography in mafia, like what was done in M3, spelling out your role name with the first letter of paragraphs?

How about encryption?

FWIW the steganography (I did not know this word before) didn't come into play during the actual game.  I was prepared to pull it out if anyone counterclaimed, though it would probably be easy to write off as a Mafia trick.  I think it was a fun thing to do once.  I wouldn't try it again, especially because of all the WIFOM that could go with it.

I'm against encryption.  Axxle just described something with Ozle in MI; I would be against that.  If a group is supposed to have daychat, they'll get it.  Encryption is just a way around that rule.  OTOH, it would be interesting if daychat was disallowed EXCEPT for encryption.  And then everyone is overanalyzing every post trying to break the codes. :P

We had codewords for rolecop investigation results with yuma and voltgloss in in MIII. At the time I didnt realize it could be scummy (see what I did there), but now that I'm less busy with being amazed at someone having the creativity to suggest it, yeah, definitely seems iffy. There should be a clear ruling about this imo* (and I would prefer for it to be prohibited, not passionate about the issue though). I sort of want to apologize for us three although the town won anyways and I doubt it decreased anyones enjoyment in the game.

*If its already in the rules, I would suggest some clarification or rewording because I read the rules and didnt realize we were breaking them and I doubt yuma or Voltgloss were doing it intentionally either.

We changed them every night to make it impossible for you guys. It was the first word of yumas first post, here is a sample codebook, this was for day 3 or something.

Quote from: yuma
Alright=vanilla townie
wow=jailer
Holy=cop
Jeez=doctor
well=mason
I=serial killer
If=vigilante
That=role not in codebook

If it is a one-shot ability I will end the sentence with an exclamation mark (!)

Like you suggested if I use the word interesting, in my next three sentences, the third word will spell out the first three letters, exactly like you did for jester.

Again I'm sorry, I didnt realize it was prohibited. "I swear I only did it once.."

It never even crossed my mind that that sort of signaling would fall under the "no encryption" rule, but if the community at large feels it does, I don't have a problem with it being clearly prohibited going forward.

Not that it helped us, anyway.

It was something incredibly brief and simple.  "If he has a power role and we dont find out till morning and we cannot communicate, if he is a cop ill spell your name with a lower case a, if he is the doctor ill spell your namewhen i first mention it with only one x"

Like I said I made sure Pops was ok with it, because honestly I would not have allowed that as mod, but since Ozle wanted to I just went along with it.

Well that would be mafia communicating during the day, which - given they dont have day chat - feels against the spirit if not the letter of the rulebook? But I would guess its up to the mod of the particular game to decide this.

Someone pmed me about codes while I was modding mafia 1.  My rules are:

1. No use of a foreign language
2. No mathematical cryptography
3. No use of post timestamps for signalling

If someone wants to come up with keywords for a group of predefined messages it's ok with me.  It's possible to get caught because it will sound awkward in your post, and the marginal benefit is small.  It's not like daytalk where mafia can write defenses for eachother.

Sorry about that.  Luckily it never came into play during the game then!  I was more under the impression that encryption applies to passing secret messages between players.  I would be OK if a player decided to leave encrypted notes that nobody else could decrypt.  If he later says, "I had this here all along", well it's legitimate not to trust it at all.

Fair enough its just that say neither you or I are in a game, I PM you a decryption key like the first post of mafia I will reveal you my role use this decryption key to find it out. Its information you have that others dont. This is ALSO true of anyone who caught your jailkeeiiper message

But that's different. In the decryption key case, or with an agreed upon code, the mafia are using their night talk to concoct a pseudo-Day talk, a power they shouldn't have. But if a townie uses code to softclaim so they can point to it later as proof, no one has more information than anyone else. The mafia is as likely to catch it as the town.

I'm not saying that you shouldn't read deeply, but Its a waste of time to try to decrypt messages that may or may not be there, it goes to the analyzing words instead of content this form is so bad at.

I've been in most of the others, but I'm sitting out that one and the newbie one.

RMMI just seems so hopeless to speculate on.

Oh, btw, random comment - is it true that so far, in all the regular (non-bastard) Mafia games out there, the only Mafia that have been lynched without direct power role help were  O in MIV and (someone) on day 3 or MIII? Or is there someone else I'm missing?

I think you are meaning Volt, who was mafia and lynched day 4 in MIII. I'm pretty sure it was not directly the result of a PR. eHal had a lucky jail but we didn't know whether eevee was the killer or victim.

Also, you should join the newb mafia QT! It's lonely over there.  :'(

I thought the most likely outcome was what happened in the discussion thread:  for someone to pick up on the C9++ issue and realize your claim of "Woodcutter #2" was 100% bogus.  (Obviously easier for me - as the mod making the setup - to notice that as an issue, then it was for the town to pick up on.)

But no one did, and you managed to get the town to kill the person who you were supposed to kill the previous night but were never planning to kill anyway even though Frisk saw through your little game and decided to kill your target for you but couldn't because your partner blocked him while you were busy butting heads the town doc and getting nothing and liking it!

I hope there is a play-by-play for MVII when it's over.  I am not following but just took a quick peek at it.  Apparently timchen is acting crazy?  Not quite sure what's happening.

That's up to you Gruj.  I do want to replace out, but you asked to do so first.  If you still want to replace out, I'll wait for the next person;  if you want to stay in the game though, then yes if O could replace me that would be great.

Try hydraing, where two players control one player slot and can daychat with each other like they're one mind.  It's a bit controversial at mafiascum, but as long as the mod is ok with it I think it'll be something you enjoy.

No! My game is next. I waited my turn.

On a side note, I personally find the small games way more involving than the big ones. In the big ones, it's okay to post less or to fall a bit behind, because there should be other stuff going on and other people being super active. If you're not contributing heavily in a small game, you are a huge detriment.

I disagree. In huge games, I find it really hard to even remember everyone, let alone analyze people. And bigger games tend to have a lot more posts, so re-reading them to analyze takes toooo long.

+1 to this.  Also - with multi scum team games - it i find it less interesting to analyze the posts.  Scum don't really know more than the other townies, so your normal town behavior is also scum behavior.

That could be pretty cool. Multiple scumteams really have blown up on each other. I think it's a combination of scum being a lot more worried about other scum than town and the fact that scum have more knowledge and are thus less paranoid and better scumhunters themselves. As scum, you really want to make the town their own worst enemy, rather than actually having to deal with an enemy.

I think multiple scumteams are probably viable somehow but are tough to balance and tend to add a lot of swing to the game.

Impartial summary for those of us not following?

Joth found Robz scummy, who in turn found O scummy, until they all decided they were likely town. Then Robz found Cuzz scummy, along with everyone else, until Cuzz claimed. Then Theorel found O scummy while Robz found Grujah scummy. Eventually they forced Grujah to claim as well, and both claims were Doctor. For awhile nobody realized they both could be true. Then they realized it was like a 07% chance, but it meant there must be a JK. Robz wanted to kill Gruj anyway. Joth wanted to massclaim. CF defended Grujah. Robz swore they were both scummates. CF claimed JK. Robz called for no more claims but still wanted to lynch Grujah. Theorel suspected O. They debated roles for 10 pages. Ribz claimed Tracker. Joth flip flopped between wanting to lynch Robz, Gruj, Cuzz, and anyone else who posted. Theorel suspected O. They decided to massclaim. Everyone else claimed VT. They debated over the existence of a SK, which could put town in lylo (he existed if nobody fakeclaimed, but not if one person lied. However if two did there WAS a SK). Theorel wanted to lynch a claimed VT over a claimed PR, using math to show the odds of finding scum were better there. He suspected O. Robz decided Sparky was scum. Sparky lurked. Insomniac claimed Robz was scum who had outed all the PR's. Joth agreed. Grujah and Frisk were on the fence. Eventually everyone but O had voted, and Sparky and Robz were both at L-1. People waffled (Ha!). People waffled some more. Everybody claimed Insomniac was obvSK. Insomniac denied it. People waffled. Sparky was lynched. Sparky was scum. Theorel suspected O.

Yeah, I think that's everything. Except, like 10x crazier.

No of course not.....took about 10 minutes
The idea is easy, getting the balance right is the tricky bit.

It will be a normal game, but with a sub game built in, that will interact with the main game, but in a completely different way to BMMMMM

I have been debating with robz regarding wether or not day 3 should start in a new thread.

I say yes. He says: won't that piss everyone off?  Discuss this - but obviously not the game.

For me personally, I like to be able to go to the print screen, copy and paste and then e-mail the thread to myself to review at places where I don't have access to the site... But with the thread so enormously huge, I can't do that. But that is a purely selfish reason and shouldn't be the only reason for doing it.

I think the "All" button is going to quickly become unavailable.  By rolling into a new thread, the view all posts becomes viable again, and people who want the history will still be able to pull down the whole thing for analysis.

I like peeking through the collection of all our finished games, and there's a fond memory every time I see the behemoths sitting there collecting dust. The feeling of epic-ness would be lost by a split, I think.

...

But that's not really a justifiable reason not to I suppose. So I'm fine with a new thread. Just update the opening post, and the last lynch post, into the first two posts. Then the unlock can come in post #3.

I am not sure how big the effort on theory's part would be, but is it possible to combine the threads after the game is finished via moderator?

I don't mind at all!  It is literally two seconds of effort and makes it way easier for people to click on "view all".  Just for fun I tried to click "All" on RMM3: my (work) computer crashed.

I can also make topics display more than 25 posts per page, but perhaps navigation is easier with that number?  But if you've thought to yourself, man I'd love to see 50 posts per page you should speak up and let me know.  It is a forum-wide setting apparently.

My main argument against this is that it might make post tracking difficult after the threads are recombined.  I regularly refer to post numbers instead of quoting, but post numbers will be all messed up after combining threads.  It only matters for post-game reading though.

Since Mafia XI is at 1990 posts, couldn't you just make some dummy posts, then add a caveat that future post #'s should just add 2000?

Actually, the way it should go is this:

Post #1990
...
Post #1999
[new topic post, unnumbered]
Post #1

So that when it gets merged, it becomes

Post #1999
[old new topic post, now Post #2000, includes caveat that all subsequent post numbers should get a +2000]

Day 3 will start in a new thread. Please do not post in this thread. We are going to have exactly 1,999 posts in this thread, so whenever anyone references a post number, you can simply add exactly 2,000.

Here is the Day 3 thread: http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=4983.0

I'll unlock it then.  We'll just have to accept the risk of an all-Morgrim Mafia game.

Thanks. Can we just delete/remove any posts that appear?

Morgrim actually hasn't checked in yet, or been online in 4 days. He better get back here! The only thing crazier than Morgrim would be making a FOURTH replacement to the game.

They're going to nightkill you Night 1 for knowing how to play.

Unless you're scum?  In which case, gg.  ;D

It's VERY different, playing IRL. No pouring over people's past statements is the big thing. A bit of advice: Pay extra attention to votes. If somebody's scumpartner is up for vote, they are much more likely not to vote for that person because you don't always have time to weigh whether busing is desirable. Also, votes don't trickle in one at a time. Also, also, scum don't have days and days to decide who to kill.

Obviously it's a less rigorously strategic game, but still all-consuming and a lot of fun.

Well, I play a LOT more online, so I'm pretty partial to it, now. There's a lot more room for cool roles, since everything is written down. However, I will say that IRL mafia is TONS of fun with the right people. It's great stress-inducing fun. Everyone is so paranoid of each other.

"Stress-Inducing Fun" - HA! :P

You should see me in action. I generally have no voice the next day, because I rant so much and so loudly.

I had the pleasure of winning as mafia once when my two partners had both been killed. The Cop got them both, and we kept failing to shoot the Cop, because the Doctor was protecting her. Finally, we shot the Doctor. Then we shot the Cop. But by then, the "we" was just me... my scumbuddies were both dead. But I did it, friends. I held on. I did it by leaving alive all the best, most pro-town players, and they didn't come after me, because they thought scum-me would have started shooting them. With 4 people left, we mislynched, I shot, and that was game. Such a good feeling.

I strongly prefer online.

In person, it tends to be, basically, a coin flip where the sides are weighted by who shouts the loudest.

The permanent record to reference makes actual arguments possible.

IRL mafia is a different kind of fun. More fun the more experience the players have I think (yesterday we had a guy claiming mafia as a doctor etc). I would still so want to make an IRL-like game with you guys happen, if for nothing else than to see Robz in action!

Does anyone here happen to be a multi-millionaire? They could pay for airfair and hotels to Italy where we can play mafia in the home of the Mafia.

I am secretly your mother. How else am I supposed to keep track of my son? You don't call nearly often enough, especially since you moved so far away to that liberal District of Columbia.

But yes, I also love Into the Woods. I have only watched the film, but am thrilled that my local community theatre--which is pretty good for being a community theatre--is performing it next year. Great music, great story, great characters. I love the Witch, Bernadette Peters is at her best in that role.

I have not.
And I have not.  I googled Avengers (2012), and the noteworthy female actor appears to be Scarlett Johansen, who played "Black Widow".

Googled "Buffy" and got Buffy the Vampire Slayer = Sarah Michelle Gellar.

If "made that guy (director) famous" is a reference to Guy Ritchie, then I'm left with Madonna.

So I repeat, who or what is Buffy?

All our close family friends with whom we spend Thanksgiving are huge game enthusiasts. I've spent all night playing Dominion (all expansions + promos) and Wise and Otherwise. I honestly haven't laughed this hard in years playing WaO. Such fun.

To be honest, BM games where we get no info are pretty rubbish, they just die out and go slow.

The original bm's were better when we had some structure, day night snd all that and only some bastardness

Oh, I finally finished the last season of Buffy a month or two ago and I hate how easily they dispatch the ubervamps in that final battle.  Maybe ubervamps are like ninjas, so they get weaker when they fight in large groups?  It still bothers me.  Also, it's fun to omit spoilers in random places to elicit curiosity.  EGGPLANTS...............

And no one is asking my Zendo Questions. For that matter, no one is asking Donald X. regular questions.

my favorite IRL zendo experience was troll zendo

there were like 5 of us playing, and one guy (Craig) went to the bathroom, and the rest of us were like "okay, let's all make incredibly easy rules, and then pretend like we can't solve them, to troll Craig"

we were using rules like "Every piece must be red" and "the koan must contain nothing other than one medium-sized piece" and it was awesome.

well we were about to lynch Robz with 2 scum still alive (O and myself) and 4 townies alive. It was a weird, but fun game where townies didn't know what their roles were, everyone but scum was really blind about it.

Well O derp hammered Robz even though I think Frisk was going to eventually... following that there was a really long twilight. Everyone was pretty much convinced that I was town. Some 100% sure of it. But the twilight put enough doubt into the mind of frisk that he was willing to try and shoot me (he didn't know he had Vig power role) and at the same time, someone (ehunt or Galz) shot O to kill both of us in the night and rob the victory we had so carefully crafted.

I am still not sure what convinced Frisk to shoot me.... but something did obviously.

It was lylo - 3 town 2 scum?

And we lynched wrong.

We were all unknown doctor variants.  I proposed (as is my way) some hair brained scheme, because town robz had super scummiky refused to do so.  The plan would have resulted in town loss, but scum hammer o gave himself away, and then we had. 2 hour twilight to figure out what was what and that the plan kind of sucked.

I switched my target and killed Yuma because I was in fact a CPR doctor ( unknown to me)

Someone - I think eHunt killed o, and we won the game through the power of twilight.

Lol I forgot to report, played IRL mafia today and got totally crushed. Dangit. We played four games, I was killed night 1 twice, endgamed myself / my team in a true MIII manner (should have fakeclaimed cop before anyone gets a word in edgewise, opened with "Okay the cop needs to claim asap!" instead...) and moderated one game. Also replaced into one game after day 1 only to see myself killed again n2 (we use night starts). Still was fun though. I have a friend visiting from canada, so we even played in english. I found myself yelling "LYNCH ALL LURKERS!" and no one had a clue what I meant.

if you have any reason to visit Salt Lake City--honestly I don't know why you would... except to visit me!... we would find something adventurous to do. But if you are flying into Miami I kinda doubt you will make it this far west... SLC is kinda isolated from the rest of the country in my opinion.

Come visit me in Melbourne. Really! It's not THAT far away.

Okay, it's pretty far away.
You all live in such interesting places! I've never been to Australia and sure would want to. Kangaroos!

Bring a hot, female, single friend and you can come visit me.
I'll tell them about your castle and wealth, and leave out the part about the castle blowing up and everyone hating you, I'm sure they'll be lining up to join!

What I'm saying is, come to Boston, we'll hang out.

If I'm not entirely mistaken about the location of this place, oh yes please! (Oh no, no one ever taught me any American geography, why would they have. But like 300 miles or so?)

I love Harry Potter. I also love the logical holes in the plot.

Why do the bad wizards ever have to "fight" or "duel" the good wizards? The good wizards are prohibited from using "Avada Kedavra." It's an illegal curse. The bad wizards, obviously, don't care that it's illegal. It's also unblockable! So why would the bad wizards ever use any spell other than "Avada Kedavra?" There should be no back and forth fighting. The good wizard uses "Expelliarmus!" or something equally lame, and the bad wizard uses "Avada Kedavra." And the good wizard dies, because it's unblockable. End of story.

Maybe "Avada Kedavra" rapidly depletes your Magic Meter, or something. But if that's the case, it's something JK Rowling never spells out. (But perhaps only because she's too busy posthumously declaring characters gay.)

I'm going to guess that Avada Kedavra just takes too long to say in a proper duel.  Then again, Expelliarmus is a mouthful as well.  Maybe the latter is easier to do without incantation, while the former is too difficult for most.

Yeah, okay, so why doesn't everyone just use "Reducto!"? "Reducto" just obliterates you. And it's easy to say. And it's not illegal! That's actually a nice work-around for the good wizards. The spell that just plain kills you is illegal, but the one that implodes you is fine. I think Ginny uses it on a dark wizard in Book 5, or something.

"I think 5 turns of the Time Turner should suffice," said Dumbeldore to Hermione and a perplexed Harry.

"What is he on about?" asked Harry.

"He wants me to use my time travel device to rescue Sirius and Buckbeak," answered Hermione.

"Right on, wicked! Hey, why don't you wind it back a little further?"

50 years earlier, Harry and Hermione apparate over to the Riddle home, where they observe baby Tom, the future Voldemort.

"Reducto!" shouted Harry, pointing his wand at the baby's face.

And they all lived happily ever after.

I haven't read such things, but my answer would be that messing with time is dangerous business.  To mess with something mundane like taking extra classes, well, that's small enough that it's alright.  But to undo an entire war, that's too big to handle.  The rewards could be great, certainly, but who knows what the risks are.

Also, time travel is weird stuff.  Since in the past Voldemort wasn't stopped, that means going back in time to stop him would not work.  Because it never happened.  All the stuff with Buckbeak did happen, so it was OK when the trio went back to save him.  Because they had already saved him.  :P

That doesn't imply to me that it takes like an overriding amount of skill to use it, just that fourth graders can't use it willy nilly. Just like they can't apparate the first time they try it, but eventually every wizard with half a brain can do it.

Playing someone called Fluttershyisbestpony on iso. First thought was "oh, I didn't know Galzria played dominion too!"

....

Of course I do! I'm pro, yo!

Actually, I got my start here on the forums in the Solo-Challenge games. I love the logic behind finding absolute optimal solutions. Ozle will remember, since it was his challenges that really drew me in to begin with way back when. (You can look at my post history and the very first posts I ever made to see)

I do play as well, just not very often on iso since I cannot play from my mobile.

Post by: Ozle on February 02, 2013, 04:38:28 pm
Oh god! So it's my fault!

Those solo challenges brought a few newbies to be honest, I really should do some more. Trouble is they were a bit if a victim of their own success, I started them and then there were loads of other variants that tried to do too much.

Yes, a Michigander; yes, conservative (I wouldn't go quite so far as to say libertarian). I'd love to get in on some forum games.

I couldn't do this before later on Friday, though, and he might be around by then. (Also, I am not positive that everyone sent my their night actions.)

Played RL mafia for the first time in a long game. Point one... my wife is amazing at being mafia. 3/3! She rockes. Point two... I had a really, really good game. I knew I was about to be investigated by the cop who had claimed, and who should have been saved by the doc. But my partner and I decided to kill the cop anyways to prevent his investigation. Risky, but it paid off. I then was forced into fake claiming doc and forcing the doc to be mislynched for the win at mylo. I forgot how fun the game was RL!

Although being town wasn't very fun, mafia kept killing me because they knew I played online and were worried that I would find them out.

This is my biggest issue with IRL mafia (or any mafia where the skill level of players varies a ton). If you are town, you don't get to live. If you don't get nightkilled, they know you are mafia because you are still alive.

This is when the mafia has to leave you alive as town and then wifom that you must be alive because you are mafia.  And then when you are actually mafia, you wifom again and say that the mafia just want you to be mislynched!

They don't talk at night, and someone will say (while everyone is closing their eyes), "mafia wake up, choose who you want to kill" and they point to someone.  Same for the others.

No talking at night, unfortunately. And fewer choices other than "Who do you want to target" because it would be annoying to have to ask, say, a joat what he wants to do when he couldn't speak. Maybe if the group knew sign language.

The set up doesn't have to be fully open. Just have extra role cards that don't get handed out. You could probably do full hidden by having the moderator take each player aside, one by one. But that's too slow.

Or have the cards say "you are a such-and-such, have this ability, etc."  Also, I one time had a role irl that could choose.  He held up one or two fingers then pointed at someone.

That's cool.

I just think it's harder for the Mod to track. I usually mod and it is very easy to forget that, hey, he was jailed! I've taken to using pen and paper.

The other thing is that it actually matters the order you do things in. At night, you pretty much have to call on jk first so you know if your can give results to the rest.

Oh, if your setup isn't full open, the Mod still has to call on missing roles. Not to mention he has to be careful about how he stands or he might give away the general location of a role based on where he directs his voice.

How do you do the voting IRL?

We do a preliminary vote where if enough people vote the person being voted is given a chance to respond and present a counter argument... after that we have a final vote. If that player doesn't receive enough votes, he can't be lynched the rest of that day.

I was able to get out of being lynched after having enough for a preliminary vote because of my convincing argument.

But I think that is more of a house rule than anything else, but we like it.

In our group, successful moderating is considered an art form. You have to pace around the whole group at night, deliberately pause for actions longer than necessary, impeccably remember orders, etc.

It could be semiopen and even closed if moderated correctly, and making nights a bit longer than needed.  Basically the mod asks for each possible team to wake up one after the other even if there might not be anyone in the team (mason, mafia, werewolves, etc).  Then he asks each person individually to wake up and do an action if they have one.  Its easier if the mod has a laptop or something.

Lies. See?


Man. The compiling is exhausting. Alright, the much awaited for piece #4 of 6, the other suspicion leader, Robz:

Day 1 Posts:
#27, #32, #36, #77, #83, #86, #89, #91, #103, #104, #106, #107, #110, #112, #120, #126, #132, #142, #154, #155, #157, #160, #190, #193, #198, #209, #215, #217, #222, #225, #227, #231, #233

Posts of interest:
#83 - Suspects Jotheonah and Morgrim for No Lynch votes
#91 - Starts accusing M of bandwagon hopping
#106 - Finds bozz's vote on him odd, but not suspicious
#110 - Stays on M
#126 - Stays on M
#154 - Stays on M, agrees with Voltgloss, slightly suspects Galzria, suspects Tables
#190 - Will vote for M, would like to hear from Tables
#215 - Still suspects Tables, but not sure. Wants to place vote #4 on Morgrim to see who hammers, but will wait if requested
#217 - Votes Morgrim, but encourages others to retract if they aren't comfortable with M being at 4 votes.

Relevant Conclusions: Day 1 was pretty straight forward. He wasn't as guns blazing towards everybody as we thought he would be. Once he chose his target, he was relentless. Possible Mafia move to get a townie killed. Highly dangerous though putting himself so forward. Makes him look suspicious, which is not an ideal Mafia move. Hard to judge. More to go off of on day 1 than Insomniac though, for good or bad.

Day 2 Posts:
#254, #279, #282, #295, #302, #305, #307, #310, #319, #328, #329, #330, #370, #372, #384, #386, #392, #395, #400, #404, #431, #454, #456, #458, #460, #461, #508, #512, #520, #521, #522, #538

Posts of interest:
#254- Post-day 1 analysis. Suspects everyone to some degree except Kuildeous. States belief that there is 1 Mafia in bozzball/Insomniac set, and 1 in Galzria/Voltgloss/Jotheonah set. Believed G was most suspicious of 3 leaving day 1, but J's day 2 posts have raised flags
#295 - Reaffirms initial V-G suspicions, but still thinks J has been acting suspicious since day 2 started. He admits to provoking M in a few posts to try and get a response.
#302 - Claims he showed conviction (albeit wrongly) day 1, a town trait
#310 - Amidst growing clamor, admits he could be wrong about K's innocence
#319 - Restates how he perceived everyone's actions in regards to Morgrim
#328 - Takes issue with Insomniacs claims that he's unduly spreading suspicion everywhere
#330 - Claims Insomniacs statements regarding himself, Volt, and Galzria are all misleading our outright lies
#370 - Reevaluates K's actions to date. Now believes he could be Mafia
#384 - Reaffirms his growing suspicion of K. Notes he doesn't agree with G's reasons
#395 - Responds to Insomniacs comment about a second town role
#400 - Makes an interesting pairs list based on "friendliness". Notes that Insomniac hasn't really been anti-anyone, so could be anybodies partner
#431 - Admits to posting while drinking (**Obvious Mafia Tell! Lynch him! ;)**)
#456 - Big long post defending himself and rebutting Insomniacs attacks. Way too long to sum up in two lines here. Go read it yourselves!
#458 - States he is confident of a I-K pairing, but thinks if he were wrong on 1, it would be K.
#461 - Reaffirms I-K most likely, but could be I-J or I-anybody
#508 - Lists suspicion levels: I and K, high. J and G, medium. V, low. Bozz, none. Defends J's "I'll vote at X time" statement from I, but claims he has his own reasons to suspect J
#512 - States he'll cast his vote in a few hours
#520 - Votes K, but makes clear he would rather be voting I.
#522 - Unvotes at request of Kuildeous for more time
#538 - Votes K

Relevant Conclusions: Well, ok. There was a LOT here. It's hard to argue that there wasn't an easy line of thought process to follow. I can see how he got from day 2 dawn to day 2 twilight. There is logic, there is reason, and... It just feels off to me. I said I would play this round by feel more than logic, and he feels scummy coming off day 2. With that said, moving forward.

Day 3 Posts:
#550, #551, #566, #568, #570, #571, #573, #574, #599, #607, #610

Posts of interest:
#550 - Reiterates belief that I is Mafia. Admits with K innocent, J and G are now hugely suspicious. J just edges G in terms of possible guilt
#551 - Roleclaims doctor
#566 - Explains his actions as Doctor, defends claim
#568 - Starts math war
#599 - Decides on I's partner. Makes case for I-J pairing.
#607 - Continues to build case against J
#610 - Admits he can fire hostility towards accusers, but believes in his case.

Relevant Conclusions: So here we are once more. Coming out of Day 2, I would've told you Robz was more scummy than Insomniac. While I'm not sure how I feel about the Doctor claim, I've gotten an overall worse vibe from Insomniac today. This brings the two about equal, though I am SLIGHTLY leaning towards Insomniac.

This brings me to another point, and I'm going to jump the gun for a moment and give you a peak into part 6, pairs:
 There are only 3 real possibilities to me. I-J, I-V, and R-V. I think of those, I-V is least likely. That means if I vote Robz, I essentially vote Voltgloss as well. If I vote Insomniac, I essentially vote Jotheonah. So which PAIR do I think more likely? Both V and J have played a friendly game towards me. But I find J's courtship for trust day 2 to be more damning. I DON'T trust it now. I was wary then, and have to be moreso now. V just let things happen naturally, and I get less of a Mafia read there. So unless something drastic happens, I will be voting insomniac at the conclusion of my 6 post write-up.


Man, what a game.

For some reason I always picture you as Japanese.  The name "yuma" seems vaguely Japanese to me, I guess.

Axxle's told me of meetup's he's gone to for another site and you really don't need anything of the sort, just people who want to come and space to accommodate people.  Find a weekend that works for everyone and voila!  He'd offer but he only has a studio apartment and not many games.

Okay that's L-1, so better stop voting until yuma gets here.
Yes I realize that, but I'm beginning to think Yuma has no intention of posting prior to the lynch
Oh yuma isn't the kind of guy to do something like that! People don't have access all the time! (Eevee of late would know..)

Oh and yuma just posted indeed, very interesting stuff. Both watcher and tracker sort of remind me of mcmc being a bulletproof town roleblocker in mafia noir.. Could be just to mess with us?

I got to say I'm unhappy we seem to be outing our power roles here left and right. I don't see yuma's claim as enough of a reason to believe mcmc, so to me it sort of feels like he just claimed for no reason. What's done is done obviously.

Ha. Bullet-Proof Town Roleblocker. Best. Role. Ever. And the flavor of it, having just met mcmc, was priceless.

Haha.

We were actually underwhelmed by our first play of netrunner (well, nkirbit more than myself.) We played two games, one each as runner and corporation, and I won both. He was frustrated that he drew 10 ice cards in a row, but that's part of the game, I guess!

We probably just need to play some more and get used to it.

You really like it?

Yes! I'm obsessed. I haven't been able to play as much as I'd like recently, like 1 game in the last month. But I really enjoy the multitude of strategies available, building decks, the immersiveness of the game, and the awesome pace of spoilers. The pacing of LCGs exhausts some people, but for me it's like Guilds spoilers every few weeks.

Some of the starter decks tend to be imbalanced for some matchups...the suggested first game between Jinteki and Shaper favors Shaper pretty heavily if both players are on about the same level. And luck does play a part, drawing 10 ice in a row REALLY sucks, but there is really a LOT you can do to mitigate the luck factor, I'd put it at approximately the same level as Dominion myself. I'd encourage you to keep playing!

I did have a frustrating first experience, but I'll keep it up.  There aren't too many good two-player games that we can play in person.. Dominion is okay, but we only have base, seaside, and intrigue, and honestly, I'd almost rather play on Goko than in person, since he has all the cards there.

Do you keep up with every single pack?

Yes, although because of a miscommunication I don't have the most recent one. *sob* I need to check whether it's available anywhere online...doubtful. Even if I don't buy them, though, I love seeing the spoilers and thinking about the new strategies they open/enhance.

Edit: *gasp* it's available for a reasonable price on Amazon!

Post by: mcmcsalot on June 19, 2013, 08:17:46 am
I think we are at the point where it is mafia's game to win or lose. I mean I think any recent town wins have been due to some big misplays by scum. Though I am not sure this is a new thing. I mean the only game I have lost as scum in the past 7 months was one very recently where I made a huge misplay(wasn't around) I don't think I am actually that amazing of a scum player, I do think it is and always has been advantaged toward scum. Alot of it has to do with participation I think, I remember I used to be soo nervous about falling behind because if I started lurking I would get lynched, now town lurks often enough it is no longer a valid reason to lynch. Which isn't a bad thing, people just don't have the time(including myself) but I think that was a major way to catch scum, they had to post and post alot because at the end of the day(literally) the lurkers were getting offed days one and two with enough post down from scum that wagons could be analyzed and they could be caught in days three, four, and five. Lastly, Power roles do need to come back to favoring town, and I mean just giving town power roles that help. Watcher and Tracker have such a super small chance of even doing anything in a game, and if you happen to see someone who isn't scum it can hurt you. IC in reality gives scum just as much as town a voice to follow and doesn't amount to much of anything, Robz use in the last game was amazing with it and still it equated to nothing but robz being forced to call a few lynches(this is worse than town trying to work toward a lynch together because it eliminates scum having to throw their voice in) We need more cops, cop catches scum or creates an IC each night he is alive and hits his target, on day 3 a reveal should create 3 IC's(depending on who is living) that would just about end the game, but hey all 3 people managed to live and cop was never blocked(oh yea roleblockers for scum should be back too, as well as a rolecop) then I think town deserves to have that advantage. I would say cop and JK work great as they can hurt eachother but they can work real well against a roleblocker/rolecop. Or give town a doc/JK/Rolecop and give scum a roleblocker. That way town has some huge saving potential and has a cop sortof, though getting back a vannilla result wouldn't give the rolecop any clue of alignment so it makes it a tad harder to create IC's and catch mafia. This way there are some huge PR's going on which influence the game and some vannilla's watching and trying to guess who is on their side fighting for them, who has knowledge of their alignment, and whose claim do they trust based on what makes sense for that player to do(see the last mean girls game, in retrospect doesn't my claim seem obviously right in the grand scheme of things vs ash's opportunistic play/bussdriver and yuma's radomly changing watcher role that watched the silly targets)

Interesting take mc.  I do think you may be right about the need for a cop.
In the end of mean girls, really it came down to me misreading Yuma and eevee.
Funny, my worst reads ever....

But really, don't sheep anyone, go read everything for yourself!

cop is definitely the best simple role for town. a JK, doc, watcher, tracker, etc. can often go to their grave without having provided any usefulness to town. A cop will usually provide a benefit of some sort, as long as they are not NKed N1.

I tend to think the problem is that people just don't tend to enjoy playing or put in as much effort as Town as they do as scum, and lazy Townies make for easy mislynches. Scum make more of an effort not to do things that we all know will be seen as scummy.

And while that itself is a joke, it's only funny because it's true that there's a real problem in that the collective town in any given game almost always seems to actively go out and punish good town play. People get so afraid of anybody stepping up their game that it makes for Towns that cannot play well without lynching themselves.

That is, mcmc believes we're at the point where games are in the hands of scum to win or lose, and I agree, only because our Towns refuse to let themselves go out and win.
