I made sure to avoid spoilers, but I'll capitulate.

I feel like saying "Then they changed it up and showed what happened to people after they were rescued" is a pretty big spoiler. I think one of the biggest surprises in the series is the revelation that what appears to be a flashback is actually a flashforward. There is plenty of room in the early seasons to speculate that they are actually dead, or that it's not possible to leave the island etc.

I also think it's a shame to tell someone who just started the series that the ending is disappointing. Others might disagree with me.

(For the record, I was really enjoying the flashsideways in S6 and excited for where they were going, and then the fact that they were just dead was a bit disappointing to me. But I would definitely still recommend the series as a whole.)

So I've started watching Lost. It's pretty addicting.

Lost had some pretty solid storytelling. I think what made it stand out was that each character had fleshed-out stories prior to the crash. Then they changed it up and showed what happened to people after they were rescued. Kind of. That gets kind of weird.

I'm a little disappointed to learn that they didn't plan out the series. On the one hand, it's really cool that they were able to tell these stories while flying by the seats of their pants, but it also meant that they didn't plan for a lot of things, and it shows in some spots.

I'm also one of the few people who was not bothered by the ending. But sadly now I cannot remember the details of the finale, so I am no longer in a state to defend it (or at least offer up reasonable explanations). I'd have to rewatch it and see if I can remember everything that season.


FTFY

It seems strange that Forum, a double Fugitive, is balanced at $5 while Fugitive would be a $4.5 but again, price/power comparisons are anything but straightforward in Dominion.

One could place Fugitive at $5 and give it a small bonus, like for instance a +Buy as an on-buy effect.

It could cost 9 debt (or $5 + 4d etc) and you gain another copy when you buy one.

I ran a couple of games of the Less Pressure setup the other day. It worked well. I think the lack of night kill is a good thing for smaller groups - it does not feel good to be night killed and it's not necessary to speed the game up. Another big advantage is that apart from someone saying "Everyone close your eyes, Mafia open your eyes" etc, a moderator is not necessary so the person running it can play as well and help get the game going that way.

The way we did voting worked pretty well. It was pretty casual - anyone could say "I vote for X" and put their hand up. If a majority put their hands up that person would have a chance to give a defense. If a majority vote occurred again they were lynched, otherwise the Day continued.

I believe he gets this kind of request all the time, with the answer being an overwhelming "I don't do fan cards." The only exceptions would be the very small number of official cards which have been designed by playtesters.

Rules Questions / Re: "no other rule is a Dominion rule"
« on: July 12, 2018, 05:28:47 pm »
To answer this question I think you need to define precisely what constitutes the "game state":

-player order
-location of each card
-how many actions/tokens/etc each player has
-what information is available to each player
-which player gets to make which decisions
-etc

The rules of Dominion define how you can affect the game state. Any change to the game state that is not permitted by the rules is forbidden. The rules make no comment on anything outside the game state, such as are you allowed to breathe or are you allowed to murder other players.

I might start playing Dominion Online again just for this.

I rue the fact that we don't say rue enough times.

I feel like that's not how 'rue' is meant to be used...

I mean, you could, but this is kind of a venting thread.
If you don't get irritated by the luck aspects of this game, you're probably a healthier human being than I am and I envy you.

Also unless I'm missing something Motion Detector is not a super powerful role.

Iím motion detector whoíll know how many motions were there. Also all the reads i always have are gut feelings i canít really explain with a lot of words and like huge percentage of you is aware of that

So this claim is not enough to get me off LL right now, but I should point out they added in the part where they get to know how many motions. Is there any merit in getting them to agree to a full claim tomorrow, and if they are lying about the role we can call them out on the amount of movement?

I feel like this is kind of the problem with RMM. If we let LL off the hook due to the claim, then get say mcmc up to L-1, but he claims some cool PR so we just end up no lynching and have achieved nothing except two claims.

2) Jimmmm (7): Idk what to say here. Has 7 posts and they all consist of RVS, voting players based on timezones or setup talk, and declaring they will be there for DL.

I legitimately thing IDPTG is scummy and LaLight is kind of scummy.

Like i believe you... i just donít know why (or does anyone but you), which is not a strong town tactic

I mean I gave reasons - IDPTG had an overly concerned "Go Town" post which often comes from scum. LL didn't know the setup in the OP which is scummy.

Also, @SA, how exactly do we know 31% of people are scums? Maybe here's only one scum and the setup is still balanced? Looks like a scumslip to me

Not knowing the setup is scummy.

As for the time, I'm glad someone brought it up because I missed it (people tend to use forum time which is also my timezone). Hopefully it won't cause issues now that everyone knows about it.

I actually think this post is super scummy. Why would you care about the timezone thing if forum time is your timezone anyway? This sounds like a fake "Go Town!" post.

Caught up. Only thing that stuck out to me was this post by Space:

Presumably, the main things governing whether people want to claim are how much they like solving setups (rather that just trying to catch people out for "sounding scummy"), and how much extra information they feel their role gives them compared to what they think the average role will have.

Scum is clearly at an advantage for the latter point, because they get to know what the roles of themselves and their three buddies are, assuming they're all in a faction QT. Though 4/14 scums seems pretty strong, especially when they can essentially eat the roles of the rest of us, so I wonder whether any of them start out with nerfs. Still, with them able to eat our roles, I don't think letting on the relative strengths of our powers is a good idea even if we have a decent level of protection available to help us keep strong town roles in alive townies' hands, because I don't think faust would design a game that could be easily solved by town just by revealing stuff.

I bolded the suspicious part. I mean, this is a valid theory, but it's a possibility that wouldn't really have immediately occurred to me. I think a scum who does indeed have a nerf , or is on a team with a nerf'd scum, is likely to think of it, though!

Vote: Space

Makes sense to me!

Vote: Space

Or is this just a way to punish a player who needs to go to the bathroom while someone's dealing with King's Court - Possession?
