Whole I enjoy winning, I am kind of glad that town didn't win a game where we didn't exile a single scum.

GG everyone!

People. Come on now.

Also, exile has happened I guess. ADK had like zero pressure outside of the few of us who started the day on them, which is interesting.

Anyway, goodnight!

And also. MiX has an inflammatory playstyle, usually will end up showing himself as scum eventually if he is, which is why I don't like lynching him early. But still. Let's all take a breath, breathe in some nice refreshing (interestingly cool) July weather, and wait for a flip

Hey, game is real slow right now. I will go back through again tonight or tomorrow, specifically looking at ADK again as well as what our exiled friends had to say

Mafia Game Threads / Re: RMM56: Stormlight Archive Mafia (Game Over!)

Really enjoyed working with mail-mi working on the setup, first time attempting to do something like this and I think it showed.

Agree with the consensus that town was always winning here with all their powers.

With the stormlight we were trying to go with a type of trade-off as much as possible. Do this one powerful action and be out of juice, or do a bunch of not-as-powerful options. I know I definitely just undervalued the "not-as-powerful" options.

I think I got caught up thinking about the third parties rather than the main town/scum. The character I am happiest about is Wit, who Eddie played marvelously even for not having read the stormlight archives. I also liked the ideas behind the assassin in white and parshmen, they just didn't play out like the might have with everything else being unbalanced

If I were to build this again, I would probably try put some VTs who have potential to convert to PRs (the whole radiant squire concept). Or just have fewer radiant PRs where it would be closer to a standard M game. Or, now that we have done mistborn and stormlight, finish reading the other cosmere books, run RMMs based on those, then do a cosmere mafia...

But, I need to start with reading the other cosmere stuff.

In the end, thanks mail-mi for letting me co-mod/create!

Can't tell if you're joking or you forgot about OMGUS.

I FORGOT! Thanks. I knew it was some sort of obscure abbreviation.

Damn! Really?? I absolutely read it as sarcasm. And it was glorious.
My memory is horrible lately⁴

I looked for the footnote and didn't find it.

Alright, let's do it this way - I'm not going to vote immediately. If I vote for Scola (hammer), day is over. If I vote for ADK, ADK will definitely vote for Scola (hammer), day is over.

So instead, since I've been absent, does anybody want to fire away questions at me?

Let's do something fun - call scum teams:

{ADK, Didds}
{MiX, [Swowl/Yuma]}

This isn't completely arbitrary - it's based loosely on my scumdar upon re-reading, and the pairings based around votes. The people I'm town reading are, in some sort of order: Mcmc, e!, joth, Robz, Mail-Mi. The people that fall kinda null for me are Swowl, Shraeye and Scola (all the S-names!), although Swowl is on the scummier side of neutral. Can't decide if I think he or Yuma is scummier.

I like this post from Galzria post-hammer looking back with the flips we have.

Lean town on Galzria

To explain, I don't see a scum team with Galzria killing robz or mail-mi last night after posting this. I mean, possible. He did list a bunch of us as towny. So have to kill someone from somewhere.

But there are better people to go after today

Both scum teams chose to kill on-wagon.

I don't know what it means, but it must mean something

I just realized the "Interview with Donald X." thread has reached 100 pages (at least for all of us who use the superior 50 posts per page view format)

Anyone think it will go the way of random stuff 1, 2, and 3?

Coming soon to a thread near you: "Another interview with Donald X."

obviously, that's because we're partners. </sarcasm>

No, just scum from both factions

Just have to say, that was a fun read catching up. You all are so funny

Anything more specific to say?

Scola is a fine target, just want to watch it from the shadows.

Joth is town as others have realized.

Uh, what else?

Mail-mi is scummy, maybe I will get lucky and he will actually be scum

Yuma is probably scum, but I won't realize it until I am exiled off in the speccy

MiX is town

Other stuff is sure to come to mind eventually

Didds was not wrong when she said this game had a weird, duderiffic energy.

I think it’s because Yuma and Robz and mcmc are all back and they’re playing the game as we played it when they left but our meta as a community has evolved since then and so there’s a slight mismatch. That mismatch is making everyone see everyone else as plying the game wrong. Plus it’s an “everything you know is wrong” sort of a setup on top of that.

Anyway, y’all are silly about reads lists. They’re pro-town and here’s why: town have actual genuine reads. Scum have fake reads (less true than normal here, but still true). It’s pro-town to make scum commit to their fake reads and put them down on paper because it limits their options later or gives us the opportunity to catch them in a contradiction.

The number one way that scum gets exiled is they get caught in A lie. Promoting an atmosphere of “everybody play it close to the vest” just gives the scum team cover to avoid lying and therefore getting caught.

Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

Between mcmc and Scola I’d rather exile Scola today because mcmc is being pretty helpful and I’d rather keep him around, even if he’s scum.

Joth being townie here

So is mcmc scumreading scola or what?

I feel like Robz has to be scum this game. Would he try this hard D1 as town? But I also feel like scum doesn't want to try hard in this setup anyway.

Also, scum wants to scum hunt and find the other team. So if anything scum will try harder

"Try hard" arguments are bad arguments

I can't decide if Didds is scummy. Is she always this defensive when a couple of people vote for her?

It's not the defensiveness that is getting on me. It's that she forced a return to her chatty friendly meta after people found her scummy for scumhunting (which, again, is not scummy)

Well, uh, you guys forced her.

Not me!

No, you are the very picture of town

I feel another mail-mi mislynch driven by me coming on...

Oh, good gravy! Being myself is scummy? And I forced it?

Yeah, only un-friendly, cynical, calculating people are townie

back to vote: Robz for playing Dominion better than me....

why are you extending RVS when we are way past that?

vote: 2.7 on principle.

Vote: mail-mi

My next post literally negated my silly vote + voting on principle is scummy
