Re: Secret Santa 2018: A Christmas Knight (D2)

So Sabrar isn't actually saying that he is prevented from having more than the lowest post count, but we are suspecting that he has this restriction, right. LaserGuy's power doesn't indicate much about alignment. It did give me a better idea of what was going on. Why did I think Mark scum => BoomFro...

Re: Secret Santa 2018: A Christmas Knight (D2)

If you can manage it somehow, I'd like to ask for a replacement — I am not finding the time I hoped to find, and I will be completely offline from Jan. 7-16, which is going to be major gametime here.

I can try to limp along until you find someone.

"Protect" in Mark_Cangila's role from N1= immune to all powers (not just kills) I am struggling to keep up (we have like 70 people from all over Europe in the house, and it is eating away at time for "important" things like mafia…). I think Mark_Cangila is more likely town than s...

The power that Mark_Cangila (apparently) had last night has two choices: 1) He can protect somebody, but that person has no vote the following day or 2) He can roleblock somebody, but that person has a double vote the following day Obviously, protecting would be the townier of the two things to do, ...

Re: Secret Santa 2018: A Christmas Knight (D2)

I'm considering whether it would be useful to reveal the power that I have now, as it adds some clarity to the night before… After all, at least 3 people know what it is (Mark_Cangila, myself, the submitter). If Mark or the submitter is scum, then the whole scumteam knows as well. What do you think?

Agree that a godfather is fairly likely with the number of investigators we have, even if some of them are batch-investigators. Christmas Eve Day is not very conducive to participation — a million things to get done today.

It’s not necessarily true that it’s going to be much easier for scum to interpret night results and find the strongest town PR’s. That depends a lot on the specific powers involved. Usually results aren’t public, so at the start of D2 scum might not know anything about town powers. In fact, because...

I don't think a mass claim is useful to town at this point. We don't know how creative people were, so judging towniness/scumminess from the role itself is going to be harder than usual — possibly. In any case, knowing who has the better power roles is likely better for scum than for town. The town ...

I was convinced that BoomFrog was going to say he is my partner.

Re: Brooklyn 99 Mafia: Halloween Heist - Day 4 - Asashination Attempt

But since the sash seems guaranteed to fall into the "winning" group at some point, the normal win has a certain priority in my mind. (I.e. you can't lose the normal game and still win the sash.)

At the moment, Vicarin is looking the worst. There's a lot of gut involved with this, but the "whoever lets me win also gets a double win, yeah!" win-con seems a little out there. On the other hand everything is kind of out there in this setup.

Re: Brooklyn 99 Mafia: Halloween Heist - Day 4 - Asashination Attempt

Zenii and Mark visited me last night.

I have never had the sash in the course of the game.

I saw the sash on N1 with bessie and tried to steal it, unsuccessfully. (The boldface was on the lines of: bessie had the sash, you couldn't steal it.)

More later.
