I have zero knowledge of the flavor and won't learn it.

The disclaimer about alignment switches makes me think we will have them, somehow. I think it's something faust would enjoy trying to do and figure out how to make it balanced. Some kind of cult mechanic isn't crazy either, though. Maybe scum can recruit?

Okay, let's get this out of the way: I AM NOT, AND NEVER HAVE BEEN, A "HE"!!! Sorry for being shouty, but while you've been gone, the whole forum has got a lot more progressive about respecting people's gender presentation and pronouns, and I'd really like to keep that progress!

My preferred pronoun is they/them, and it's even in my sig line to help people remember. I'll settle for she/her in general, and especially for this game, since it's very in keeping for the flavour.

Actually, Vote: mail-mi

While it might sound like pronoun-omgus, I've just realised that I haven't been doing setup stuff at all, so characterizing me as having done so is weird. I've talked about the flavour, because it's something I like, and about timezones because it's something I'm generally conscious of as someone who's not on the American continent.

I haven't really begun posting my thoughts on how the game mechanics and real set-up stuff might go, because the stuff I've thought of doesn't really fit with a anything I'd see as a balanced game.

To be fair, the way you have it in your sig mostly just makes it look like you modded the Pronouns: they/them mafia.

By "set up" stuff I was talking about flavor and time zones, along with the game set up. Honestly it's a closed game so there's not much actual set up stuff we can do

Actually for those that know flavor, would a flavor claim be good? Or not

This felt like pouncing on mail-mi for something that might very well be wrong but was not especially likely to come from scum. (Town needs no help tricking itself into mass claiming.)

You're probably right. I guess a better question would be, are there obvious flavor names that would be scum?

There are probably obvious scum flavors, but I doubt that the game would be designed in such a way that a mass claim would out scum on D1.

@Hyper- Thanks for the reminder about the plurality things and the anti-town tie vote resolution. It does seem unusual and worth noting but it’s buried in the start up text.

Yes, everyone is a she this game! Hooray!

2. jotheonah - I've played with you before too.
3. LaLight - you're cool
4. DatSwan - no idea
5. mail-mi - is the best
6. Awaclus - I've played with you before
7. 2.71828..... - hi e, I'm in a math class right now
8. WestCoastDidds - no idea
9. Robz888 - is scum
10. hypercube - no idea
11. mcmcsalot - is Robz's brother, was new the same time I was new (Remember that first newbie game?)
12. ashersky - good old ash, good to see you again. What's your plan?
13. Galzria - I might have played with you? I think you modded the pirates game
14. Glooble - don't think I've ever played with you.

So, WestCoast, DatSwan, hypercube, and Glooble, what's your mafia playing experience?

Galz got me hooked almost 2 years back now i guess (maybe a year and a half). I think i have played about a dozen on fds.

I don't particularly have a preferred pronoun but I'm male so he/him is technically correct.
