I already made willingness to switch to Galz known. No lynch was happening other than those two. Once WCD said she preferred shraeye I didnít see what there was to be gained by me chiming one again.

Plus Iím on my way out the door.

If we lynch Arch and he flips scum how do we know he wasnít just scum telling a weird lie to get town!shraeye lynched?

Face it, neither of them tell us anything about the other.

vote: shraeye

Deadline is right as I'm leaving the house. If I wake up before my alarm I'll hop on for a bit.

Iím also suspicious of Glooble, after the fits he threw D1 about how horrendous his lynch would be, he doesnít seem overly concerned about his position at this time or being a Zombie in general... which, to be fair, as being a Zombie itself is probably NAI, Iím not entirely certain that my gut reads on this are strictly on point.

What I said was it would be very bad if I were lynched Day 1. It would have been.

It's only normal amount of bad if I'm lynched day 2.

Sorry I haven't been very active this game. Work has been crazy since we got back after the holiday so I can't really get on during the day like I used to.

Has anyone else considered any potential value for skum in claiming zombie (whether true or not)?

Like I don't have anything per say, but if Zombie is not in fact indicative of Skum alignment, then by changing from zombie to human, one would still be skum yes?

Yes, but going Romero is way worse for scum than it is for town, since scum have more to lose from a random death. So ideally we'd like to not turn the scum zombies human (and if we can turn the scum humans zombie, that's be good too.)

Hmmm. Interesting.

I am a zombie, btw. If you don't want to trust your reads.

I think itís very likely that we just got really unlucky and everyone tried to eat MiXís brain. Look at it this way: Since almost no one was voting for MiX when he died, most town zombies probably get +2 for MiX, whereas several of them were probably voting for LaLight so they only had +1 there. If everyone went for the brain they thought they had the best chance of snagging it make total sense to me that they would all collide.

What an active game we have going on. Over 12 hours and nothing.

Pops, anything exciting happen to you last night?
My aunt sent me specialty ice cream for Christmas (it arrived really late), cookies and cream, the same flavor my brother and I both like.  So rather than going out and drinking I decided to watch Netflix and find out how good it is.  I ended up not eating it though because my roommate ordered a pizza so I ate pizza instead, ice cream keeps a lot better in the freezer than pizza and that's more important than how eager I am to find out what it tastes like.  It does mean twice as much guilt.  I will have to eat a stalk of broccoli this weekend.

My roommate and I watched an anime about a goddess who guides a hero in rescuing a world, but it is humorous because he assumes everything is a trap, cautious, and she always wants him to be a more stereotypical hero.

I pretty much never pass up an opportunity to derail a mafia thread but others are probably going to be mad at you for asking about my New Year's when you complained about game pace in the same post.  How'd you spend your New Year's Glooble?

That answers my question I suppose. I went to a very, very, very swanky party and I didn't realize exactly how swanky it would be so I was underdressed. The my brother-in-law showed up even more underdressed and I felt better.

I mostly just wanted to put my someplace to give the people who will be on at deadline options, like you said. And I found LaLight a little scummier than ADK.

Alright, Glooble. Iím going to vine stand by you for awhile.

I believe that lynching you today is a bad idea. Youíre not on board the Galz train. So, what are you thinking?

I just Isoíd Galz- didnít take long. None of it came of particularly scummy to me. Heís not a terrible lynch, but I donít see why heís the biggest wagon.

 
Whenever I roll mafia goon I make believe I am a VT and I play in a VT way.  So I care less about mechanics.
I expect other people to be like that too

I get this, but in a role madness game designed by faust I expect no actual VTs, and that makes this mindset more dangerous for scum, since if pushed they have to fake claim something.

RVS talk aside, do we really lose anything from claiming who's human and who's zombie? There's probably some abilities that turn humans into zombies, or vice-versa, and hiding when those changes happen might be good, but I can't tell how bad it is if we all just claimed our initial status. What does everyone else think?
This made me think MiX genuinely didn't know a lot about the setup -> has fewer abilities.
Being willing to talk about mechanics is vanilla indicative because there's less fear of rolefishing yourself as well, if you're the godfather in a cop game you don't want to slip in the way you describe investigation mechanics, a goon doesn't care.

Sorry, what? That reason makes sense if MiX is town but not if MiX is scum. Mafia had all of night zero to talk- they know each otherís roles. A goon has exactly as much info about the setup as a Godfather.

Sorry I know I havenít said anything in a while other than ďdonít lynch meĒ but trust me when I say lynching me today would be exceptionally bad. I wish I had a strong scumread but I really donít.

It's scummier that you missed it? Or it's scummier that he had to do it early???  This just sounds like it contradicts your earlier musings, or did I misread something
That he had to do it early, if it was compulsive. From a design perspective makes it seem more like a scum power to temper the benefit of an additional kill.
Disagree. The brain-eating mechanic makes it NAI, since the goal of the power is, presumably, to make sure there are enough brains for all the zombies to eat.
NAI = not alignment indicative? Iím not familiar with the acronym.

A power can serve the greater mechanic while still being more likely being assigned to town or scum based on the context or relative strength

Not alignment indicative. Yeah. A compulsive day 1 vig is basically negative utility for town, but given the setup it seems like a reasonable design choice to me.

So we've learned a few things.

1. Some players, at least, have two sets of powers - one for when they are human, and one for when they are a zombie. Or that was my interpretation of MiX's flip anyway.

My role pm heavily implies that there is at least one town-aligned player who can turn humans into zombies. Given the extra info from MiX's flip, it seems to me that if there is a player whose zombie power is much better than their human power and they are currently human, such a player might want to volunteer for zombification. Obviously, this increases the chances of a player going Romero. But -from a game-design perspective, a town-aligned compulsive zombie-izer makes a lot of sense, and if we did have such a role, it would be good for a player who would rather be a zombie than a human to say as much.

2. A dayvig shot that can only be used Day 1 (or is much better if used day 1) makes a lot of sense with the brain eating mechanic. I can see faust wanting to make sure multiple brains would be available night 1. Pops' behavior is still a little questionable to me, but given the additional info that he was incentivized to use his shot today, it's less scummy to me. So...

unvote

I keep thinking it would be a crazy scum move. Getting lynched if you are wrong is very possible,  and losing a team member Day 1 is pretty terrible for scum. This is WIFOM, of course, but what would be the motive to take a risk like this? Town has the hope of fame and glory if they are right,  at least.

To me, pops comes off as an experienced enough player to do it for the WIFOM

Pops is experienced enough to do this as scum, yes. Heís also experienced enough to do this as Town if he felt it was the right play, and heís not the type to solicit opinion first.

Pops is not scummy for having done this. You want my vote there, youíll need to convince me why he wouldnít have done this as Town, not why he might have done it as scum.

I mean the obvious answer is that it seems unlikely that he would have a strong enough read on mix at that point to justify shooting from the hip like that

Read aside, did he not create a flip (regardless of alignment) to make D1 more than just a bunch of randomness? The D1 lynch is generally accepted to be more or less a crap shoot anyway - weíre just getting ourselves to D2 where weíll have real information to go on. We now have real information - both about Pops and about MiX - with which to proceed through D1.

Weíd have a lot more information if heíd waited until MiX had had more interactions that we could analyze. He shot before everyone had even posted.
