Re: Dr. Wonka's Nerds - Day 1 - Meeting of the Minds

So, to perhaps actually contribute, what constitutes power in a university setting? A) Social power: club leadership, positions of importance on a sports or ch...

Re: Mini: Whistling In the Dark--Day One

You can only vote for the actions outlined in your PM. So yeah. Mafiosos don't get to vote on the town's protection target, and townies don't get to vote on the mafia's NK.

What happens when there are an equal number of people voting for a protect/kill? If, hypothetically speaking, a faction had both a protection and a night-kill, and somehow managed to target one person with both--and what a ¡cheese-burning! moment that would be--then the effect would be the same as ...
