PMs should go out tonight, my time (in about 12~15 hours) D1 start some time after that, depending on how many people are able to confirm.

no this one is much better and it'll get you town read so keep it on

Why is it better? Is it from some show or something?

Also: Vote evil George Washington
I liked your old avatar better, this one is more evil and less Washington.

You already answered your own question. It looks cute and peaceful while your other one is not a whale and has evil horns.

I won't be posting as actively as I would like since I work constantly, and have two other games of mafia ongoing. (Somehow, I was signed up for another rofl)

I played in that meta game! I was Wam if I remember correctly. [edit: I was actually Adam H, and had to claim jester at one point in the game!] Good fun.

Edit: here's the game! http://forums.xkcd.com/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=101040


I played as wam. I guess it was a few years ago now.

It is funny rereading it, as I know I spent a fair amount of time on that game, but have no idea what my thought processes were. I have no idea why I claimed to be secret mafia at the end, was this a genuine mistake or was I trying to do a play of some kind? No idea.

@Peaceful Whale etc.

As much as having the same avatar might be amusing, can I suggest that you have distinct ones, as it will only cause confusion.

I wonder how Sabrar responds. The question Madge asked is pinging me... it just seems to casual.

Hey x what are we going to do
Oh you know, just y. *wink*
Yada yada.
I feel like it’s nothing though. If Sabrar has a plan right off the bat, and Sabrar or Madge is scum, the other is probably too. It could be reverse distancing?

I’m pretty sure it’s nothing...

Hi flicky!

I am a security officer. I have a cop ability and role cop ability that can each only be used once per game.
I'm thinking mafia will want to push for lynching as many people as possible d1. I think it best to lynch just one and then depending on the night result on d2 start to mass lynch, with maybe waiting for d3 to start mass lynching
(But no later). We should win or lose by d3. I just would like to get rid of mafia (anti-UNE players) before they can maximize on their abilities.

Thanks for the smileys end of last game. At the time I dropped out, I wasn't feeling as interested in playing as I think someone aught to be; turns out I would have had to do so later on due to major RL issues that came up end of January.

Stellarius (only tangentially related)

Spoiler:
So, only time I was in a lights out game was probably not the most typical setup. We had three factions of four people looking for a separate victory, one person in each faction being part of the "scum" faction. After much arguing, we ended up no-lynching D1, got all three scum D2, then ended up in a stalemate that finished when us survivors declared peace. Tactics have absolutely nothing to do with the current game, but it makes for an interesting read.

I think I've mentioned this again, but I just know I'll get Zenii and Evil George Washington confused at some point in the game.
I'm kind of curious how this sort of game works and what the best strategy for town is, but I'm sure more experienced players will be happy to tell us about it once the game starts. It seems to me lynching more than once per day gives less night kills to scum overall, on the other hand we won't know how successful we were on any particular day.
If only we could get a go on the game already.

Hmm...
What would happen if I were to falseclaim survivor in my private thread with Sabrar?

Would that be insane?
If he's mafia... would it make a difference?
I guess it could cause problems later in the game in MYLO/LYLO type situations.

Chat is night-only, which is a bit surprising to me. This could be very Town-sided if mafia has the same disadvantage.

Seriously though, this is the worst role ever for this setup. I have to be townie enough not to draw multiple lynches per day, but scummy enough not to draw a kill. And Sabrar needs to do the same.

Suzaku wrote:UNS Ajax Psi Ops Officer

Welcome, Peaceful Whale.

You are the Psi Ops Officer of the UNS Ajax.

Your psionic abilities allow you to receive limited information from denizens of the Shroud, a higher dimension only accesible by psychics.
Once each day, after an execution, you may PM the mod Seek Guidance. You will receive a message from the Shroud informing you whether or not the execution was just.
Note that I will respond as soon as I see your PM, but this may not be immediate, depending on the time. Attempting this just before an execution may be a bad idea.

You win when all anti-UNE factions are eliminated and at least one member of the UNE is still alive.
