I really have no idea if I am doing this right, but couldn't you just switch some things around to go like this?

-------------------------------------------------------
|Town Doctor  |Vanilla Townie|Mafia Goon  |
|Mafia Roleblocker |Town Cop |Town 1-shot Bulletproof Townie |
|Town Jailkeeper|Mafia Goon|Town Tracker|
-------------------------------------------------------

So that it separates the Doctor/Tracker combination and the Bulletproof Townie and Jailkeeper combination?

I guess the problem with that it that the top row is really weak for town, as JK is a better role than Doctor, and the bottom row is probably too good for town.

But maybe some other sort of switchero would work?

This is possible, but it skews balance. For example, the setup Doc/VT/Goon is pretty bad for town. On the other hand, JK/Tracker/Goon is massively town-sided.

Oh, you said that already. Well nevermind.

I don't think there's an easy solution. The balance is quite hard to preserve, and you can probably only keep balance by creating a completely new setup.

The history of f.ds newbie mafia games is a long and storied one. It is a story of newbies. It is a story of... mafia. Yes, indeed. But through the years the game have always felt a little off. In his 21st century classic "Newbie Mafia: A History", Teproc speaks of "incredible lynches, unforgettable L-1 announcements, some of the most obscene and cringeworthy RVS stages in modern history," and the debuts of some of "the most legendary f.ds mafia figures, like Teproc, Teproc, and Teproc."

But the golden days of f.ds newbie mafia were not without their flaws. While Teproc assures us "there was plenty of MVP caliber play, mostly from myself," flavor, or lack thereof, "turned a lot of people off. But so did my ridiculously awesome play, so whatever. Screw 'em." Oh the mods did their best to make games interesting, but they never quite succeeded. Most games were a Dominion theme of some sort, "and I completely dominated", says Teproc. "No seriously, go look! I'm a friggin BEAST! Quickhammering at NIGHT? Who else could pull that off? Who else could get away with it? Nobody. Nobody but me, that's who. WUT!"

But the games lacked variety. Players grew weary with the Dominion theme, and they became bitter of Teproc's superior play, what with him quickhammering even if there wasn't a wagon. "I gained the nickname 'The Chuck Norris of Newbie Mafia'," recalls Teproc, "I would shoot the whole mafia team as a SURVIVOR! I would bypass wagons and just lynch people BY MYSELF when I felt like it! When I was town on a wagon, we ALWAYS lynched scum, even if they were town! And if I was scum, I would NK my partners and win the game by MYSELF!"

A true legend indeed. And with that, I present to you the glorious return of super awesome flavor names. Enjoy!

heeeeey yaa-aaaaa vote: dylan32 sorry


questions for kkrieg:

1. don't tell us specifically what role you are (this isn't a question)
2. are you good guys or bad guys?
3. how much has gkrieg filled you in? i would assume you have a basic understanding of how mafia works but has he told you about e.g. me and how i am really good at reading him and stuff?
4. are you actually the secret weapon behind gkrieg's successes?
5. how similar are your speech patterns to gkrieg's? if you are town could you please talk like he does when he's town and if you are mafia could you please talk like he does when he's mafia?
6. are you excited? (hint: yes)

house was prescribed to my by space in m87. lockjaw is a word that makes it easy to ctrl-f me (kj is in like a other word, lalight said "quickjumping" one time.


incidentally, if you flipped town here that would be especially helpful for me in a meta sense (already)
