Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

Necro: So, I was thinking on the whole thing. I'm fairly certain, that in a random game (with cult numbers s.t. town:cult win is 50/50), the original fighter's chance of winning is the lowest among all of the players, as they actively harm the faction they are recruited to (in a ...

Re: Necro-Cultia: Villiage of Burgois D3: One Down

My best guesses today are mpolo and dimochika, mostly because they are the 2 people that lynx did not mention. But what if THAT's what scum wanted us to believe? This is full of wine, I don't think anything can be gathered from lynx's comment, he could have done whatever and we don't know what case...

Re: Necro-Cultia: Villiage of Burgois D3: One Down

I think that if we have an original wizard or original cleric still alive, they should claim. They'll be vulnerable after claiming, but we know the power will just be passed down. The benefit is having as many confirmed town or claim/counter-claim situations as possible to minimize the risk of misl...

Re: Necro-Cultia: Villiage of Burgois D2: Death of a Butcher
