Hey, I'm Spak from SmashBoards. I've been playing for ~2 years now, and am thus still considered one of the newer players on the site. I can't attest to if I'm a good player or not because I haven't figured that out for myself yet, but it's been a bit since I've played a full game so I'm looking forward to this. I'm a guy, and prefer the normal guy pronouns (he/him/his). Oh, and I'm currently residing in Indiana (although I'd be in NC if I were to ever play on this site when I'm home during breaks).

Vote: Maven

I don't trust bear men. Get in here and prove me otherwise.

Now back to Data Structures and Algorithms lol.

Basically, mpolo's claimed power is, if used in a vacuum, an inherently anti-town power even if he is town. Him declining to use it N0 gives him some townie points. The later in the game it gets, the more useful his power might be since he'll have good info on which to base his decisions. By the time we get to the point where it would be easy to tell if lynching him would cost the game, he would be able to "earn his keep" in a sense.

Oooooooo is this a nod to my bomb roles from Bad Idea Mafia Redux? If so, <3 you guys. If not go ahead and laugh at my narcissism. Hoping its a nod though considering it was through the bomb mechanic that OS mistakenly thought he could break the setup =P

General info for non smashboards players (or really anyone who hasn't played in an OS setup before): Firstly, OS has a fantastic sense of balance. He also loves to make games full of power roles, especially interesting non-traditional ones. Expect to see a lot of roles or variations on roles that you've never seen before. However, you can also expect that this will likely be one of, if not THE MOST ROBUST setups you've ever played in, both in terms of balance and meaningful choice given to each slot. Unless OS has lost his touch, which I have no reason to believe, we're in for what could very well be his magnum opus, though I'd hesitate to call it that without actually hearing it straight from him haha. Either way, because OS knows what the fuck is up when it comes to robust game design, I can safely say that the chance of there being cancerous degenerate roles in this game is near zero. That means no lazy, bullshit, kingmakery, or otherwise toxic wastes of slots like survivors, jesters, lynchers, etc. If there are multiple indies in this game, they won't be anything you've seen before in all likelihood (unless of course you've played in one of OS's past games) and they certainly will be fairly balanced with challenging wincons.

In fact, I'm so confident that this game is probably insanely well balanced that Im pretty much unconcerned with speculating on the setup at this point because it is probably immensely difficult to metagame and we don't have to worry about losing to some stupid gimmick which is so fantastic for my mental health in a game this large.

moody7277 wrote:Thanks for the mod info. I'll keep my eye peeled for something more exotic then.


I should be saying that I know that OS/marshy/rajam all know better than to use shit roles like jester in this game because afaik this setup was a collaborative effort amongst those three but I don't think any of them would disagree that this setup is likely to mostly be OS's creation with input and adjustments suggested by marshy/rajam. My point remains however that the setup will not have unfair/degenerate bullshit in it because none of the three co-mods/designers would tolerate that. The fact that OS had extra eyes going over the setup only makes me more confident that we don't have to be afraid of wack roles.

The thing about your post is that it comes from the perception that I'm town and not scum just throwing shade. A townie would be more suspicious of my motives, but you're already sure that I'm just "misreading" you.

It still was a neutral tell, but now that I see you forcing assumptions onto me, that is a slight scum lean. It's practically putting words in my mouth. And not the yummy sweet kind that tastes of cotton candy.

Ninja'd: No, misguided scum also scum read me as well.

I never explained why I initially scum read him, but his reaction is telling enough.

What was your "woah that escalated quickly" post referring to?

Scum can't be misguided because they'd know you aren't scum. Pretty straight forward. I'm not putting words in your mouth, I'm looking at the mindset behind your words, and your post indicated that you were of the mindset that I am town -- something you shouldn't yet have evidence for unless you're scum or peeked me n0.

My guess is it had to do with you doing what seem to be serious votes while the rest of us are still thinking joke votes. We had a guy in here that did those who also had a really solid scumhunting reputation. Of course, he also had a killer gambit game when he was scum, so I think I'll be treating you very carefully. I think I saw what gave you the scum read on heury, but I think I want to leave that for others to discover for themselves.

With a game this size, and with the other site's members possibly not having our aversion (although YOLOSWAG has been here enough to know), it's also not out of the question that there might be cult.

You may want to re-read Peaceful Whale's 2 previous games to get a feel for him.

I'm really not a fan of basing reads off of meta. I think it tends to act more as a blindfold than it is useful. Play style is something that can be easily altered. PW themselves said they overplayed their newness in the last game. I don't think it would be wise to use that as a basis for their alignment this game.

It seems like we have more than our fair share of jesters, and I find the role distasteful in the extreme. Fortunately, I am allowing myself to be convinced by FrozenFlame that there won't be any. As for cult, that is purely based off of game size. In a small game, they've already won by the time you know what's happening. It's also distasteful, because you basically have to make a deal with the devil in order to get rid of them.

It definitely wasn't a vig, I was immune to all targeted night actions. And that was a fun game - I was basically playing as a serial killer with teammates I could sacrifice (given the number of investigative roles, any of my teammates were almost certain to be outed by endgame, so my goal from the beginning was to try to slip under the radar, and it almost worked).

How this game is going to go now that Dgames is here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NP9QaXL5fTI

I only skimmed through on my phone, so I'm about to reread and get a grasp on everything, but some things I saw that I felt I should mention

1. No one but Zynth would say Zynth was the best Dgamer

2. Jester's are widely hated on Dgames and essentially blacklisted. Can't confirm there isn't one, but it's extremely unlikely. But what is likely, based on previous OS settups, are independents with strange/crazy roles or win conditions.

3. It's probably useless to try and guess the setup beyond something basic until more roles are revealed, and even then it'd be difficult. We normally frown on it.

4. Dgames has a very small group of players, we've been playing with each other for years (as Spak said, he's been with us for 2 years and still one of the newer members), so we unfortunately use a lot of meta. Seeing so many new people will be exciting. I've never played mafia on another site so I for one am very interested to see how I do.

Sounds like a bus driver, which is not a pro-town role. I see no strong reason for him to roleclaim this. So please explain why you felt the need to out yourself so early?

Welcome Smashboarders! First of all, I’m sure you want to hear about me me me! I prefer female pronouns. I’ve been playing mafia for almost four years, on this site only. But I didn’t play too often for the first few years, so I don’t have as much mafia playing experience as many of the others. I live in Southern California and work a regular 9-5 job, and I don’t play at work. If deadline falls when I am at work I will do the best I can to check the thread and change my vote if needed, but I can’t guarantee that I will have the opportunity.

There has been no indication that flavor knowledge is necessary, or even helpful, for this game. There is no long flavor-heavy opening post. In fact, it has been denied by the mod.

Anyways, I'm Dgames' best player. I've won 90% of the games that I've been town and I usually have most of the scum team pinned down by the end of D1, usually within their first few posts. (For example, Peaceful Whale is scum). At my worst, though it can take up through Day 2.
Hi Zyth (Zen)! There have been some issues with new user registrations since July. You also need to make five approved posts before you can post links, which may be why your posts were flagged as spam (posts in certain subforms, like the mafia subforum, do not increase your post count). Try making five posts in this thread. If that doesn’t work, and if you like our community and decide to stick around, I’m sure the forum moderators can help you get your account cleared so that you can post as the username of your choice.

Thanks for pointing out your town win rate. So what’s your win percentage as scum? Or was the purpose of that post just to declare your townines?

Why the power claim? Or are you also just trying to claim town? (And mpolo, good luck on Wednesday.)

Peaceful Whale, interesting (over)reaction here. It’s D1, page 1, and you have 1/20 votes.

Peaceful Whale wrote:(Like I said, I'm a noob)
Thanks for the second helpful reminder!

Now this is scummy.
Interesting. All the scummy things Peaceful Whale has posted and you pick this.

FrozenFlame, thanks for the quick overview of Overswarm’s games, as I’m not familiar with them. I love setup spec and my initial guess, were this an xkcd mod, would be 13-3-3-1 or 13-4-1-1-1. But in light of your post, I’m going to think about it a little and maybe come back to this later.

Clearly the only logical choice. Scum-points to the first player who guesses the reason. :D
Pretty lost here unless you've somehow become privy to an SWF inside joke re: historical regularities that occur to my slot
:lol: :lol: :lol: (insert xkcd inside joke here regarding bessie’s slot)

#HBC | Zyth wrote:Scum can't be misguided because they'd know you aren't scum. Pretty straight forward.
Why? We could have two scum teams.

Peaceful Whale wrote:Yep Zyth, all of a sudden you randomly voted for huery.
Not true. I think Zyth explained that this was not a random vote.

Gamma Emerald wrote:@Zyth: I think his main issue is being called scum not being scumread. He just used bad wording.
Why not let heuristically_alone explain his issue himself?

Peaceful Whale wrote:Well, there's another vote for me. I should just pretend I'm scum, it appears I'm more towny then. :cry:

Peaceful Whale wrote:Not scum, you'll regret lynching me.
Is that four or five reminders to everyone that you’re newbie town? I’m losing count.

Dgames has a very small group of players, we've been playing with each other for years (as Spak said, he's been with us for 2 years and still one of the newer members), so we unfortunately use a lot of meta. Seeing so many new people will be exciting. I've never played mafia on another site so I for one am very interested to see how I do.
It’s very similar here. we’re a pretty small group and some of the players are quite good at meta reading others.

More in a bit. My husband and my puppy are barking for their dinner.

Hello XKCD. This is Ranmaru from Dgames. Catching up shortly. I highly implore everyone to be concise as possible. I don't want to have plenty of walls, it makes it harder to read the thread. If you really need to, please use a spoiler. I am a he.

I want you to expand on this. How does FrozenFlame relate to the mechanics? What was the reason?

Interesting. Is Zyth serious about this, or is this just an SDK-style gambit?


What is your motivation in posting this post? If it was a gambit, why would you point it out before he's produced any results?

Sabrar mentions that Peace Whale's reads list is scummy, but he doesn't vote him. He asks Zen a question about his vote on Peace Whale, but he never follows up. He drops his vote at the end. He doesn't care to actually find scum, nor does he care about what Zen's answer to his question would be.

Just for that I'm not going to refrain from my usual wall-of-texts and will over-explain a lot of things because clearly we're used to different conventions. You've been warned.
