I plan to start the Scales of Justice game 48 hours from now. I can make it work with anywhere between 5 and 9 players, but more is better.

We have two completely new and one semi-new player in the game out of the five players so far, so it would be nice to have some experienced players to join them.

Blatant cop claim is blatant. Though it's a lie, I do have a very strong reason for believing bio is scum, aside from what I've said in thread. I should have picked up on it yesterday, but the whole 2-mafia thing didn't click in my head.

I hope the mafians had a good Christmas. Still minimal activity from me in games, m'afraid, lots of family to visit and stuff. Posts in all games ASAP, I promise.

The current numbers are 3 town, 3 scum and 1 survivor... but with AS's power still in play, it's not LYLO yet. My money's still on scum winning this though.

I did, it was very thematic and interesting. Getting someone to quote me and question me was a LOT harder then I thought it would be though. I also like your meta motivation for the role which is that if you avoided questioning anyone you'd be immune to one of the kills out there.

Especially appropriate since I recently became a father too :p Not too stressed though. :)

Who do you think is scum? No one has claimed in spoilers.

Pass. I didn't really care - I was taking the easiest vote possible tbh. As indie, I didn't care who died as long as it wasn't me.

I'd be interested to learn how I died - I targetted no-one on N1, and Conman on N2.

I'm curious about how my sent role. Based on stuff so far, Vieto has it, he's town and hasn't told his forum crush yet. I wonder who he chose :wink:. Moreover, I wonder how my role actually got amended, because I'm sure there's a lot of broken strands about it.

My sent role was a bit based on School Days hehe. A 1-target stalker/role & alignment cop that can kill his target when Day 4 arrives. Hope such mechanic works.

I'm not sure - my role, described by Misnomer as "Paranoid PGO-Creator", is that whoever I target is jailed, and anyone who targets them dies. Unless somehow it redirects on myself - or someone else redirected the effect.

Interestingly, I haven't seen the role I sent in mentioned yet - it's essentially a redirecting role, called the "Regifter". It's possible they had something to do with it.

Guess we have to wait for the Big Reveal to find out about everything. :?
Speculations mode!:
FOAT is scum.
His friends are, mpolo, GoP, or webby.
so far based on guess, webby has some possible slips.
webby's vote to mpolo seems to connect to a scum distancing. GoP is the odd one out me guesses, since he's lurking. (Not that lurking is a townie tell, since scum's as likely to lurk due to IRL reasons.) I hope there's a medium chance for town to win in this stage. I want to see timmeh murder his crush :D

Oh lord, this is like watching a car crash...

T1mm has a crush on Webby... but Webby's role redirects actions at others, including investigations. So neither of Vieto/T1mm's investigations have actually been on Webby (in fact, last night's investigation failed entirely). Anyways, in addition to actual useful information, T1mm also recieves meaningless info, such as his crush's 'birthday'.

However, T1mm seems to think the information is genuine... oh dear oh dear...

Also, he's done the "I love you" thing a day early, but I'll let it slide if both he and webby survive the night.

REMINDER: Firefly mafia still needs more players. See the signups thread for more info.
20 players by January 6th and you can vote on whether or not reavers are included.

Also recruiting vote-counter/Flavor poster in case I need to be away from my computer for any length of time.

Okay, so I think I just flipped the paranoid-switch. There's 4 players that are all looking very much like scum, but that would mean town has already lost? Right? I mean, we lynch one, they kill me, there's a 3 vs. 2 situation the next day, a no-win situation. But it wouldn't make sense with that many scum, so one independent? Or two? That's a lot of independents for such a small game? Or, more likely, more people have abilities that lets them avoid death. Also, my power is going to make a mess out of tomorrow if someone doesn't kill me soon. Come on you guys! Kill me! But then again, if I was scum I wouldn't waste a kill on me knowing I'd die tomorrow anyway. So, uhm, sneaky tactics time?

I am rather enjoying this game though. Thanks for my role whoever made it! And thanks Misnomer, for modding this :D

There's a lot I want to share, but I can't in-thread cus it will affect what I'm trying to share.
First off, I get to kill Webby N4. That's nice. If his claim is true, he can redirect it to scum, if his claim is false, he dies. Works well so far. The things that need to happen in order for this to work out:
1: We need to kill scum. Badly. Luckily, FAOT has offered himself there, so this part of the plan seems to be working out. If this fails, all else does.
2: I need to live through N3, and so does Webby. That's the reason why I'm not claiming this yet. Scum could kill me, and get my NK out of business.
3: I need to convince Webby to be on the town side, and that actually may be harder.
As a matter of fact, I don't see what's currently refraining him from saying "Mafia, come out, I'll help you and kill them townies. Expose yourself, vote a townie, I'll join. Town is quite defenseless against that.. Bar AS, but that's generally not a good thing to rely on. That's a coinflip whether we'll lose through the night, and another coinflip next night, and another coinflip the night after. I don't want to face those odds...
Still wondering what b.i.o is actually up to. I believe webby (it's my sent in role :X) but I don't know about anything else. FAOT, you're going down bro :)

I found an interesting game called Neptunes Pride, a browser based space conquer game that lasts around 4 weeks:

http://np.ironhelmet.com/rules

and a really good diary of it from Rock Paper Shotgun seems to suggest that the game is a lot of fun and is more focused on diplomacy than mangaging resources (so lots of alliances, betrayals and lies). The winner seems to be whoever can manipulate the other people the most and it reminded me of mafia somewhat.

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/01 ... more-87390

Anyway, I've looked more into it and it turns out a premium account is needed to create games. So i'm going to go on search for a similar game that is free to create games and invite people. I'm just wondering if anyone would be interested in getting a group together from the forum to play something like this? If there is, I'll see what I can find, or possibly even pay a few quid for a month of premium account to create a game for us (as it does sound good). Let me know if your interested either by PM or in this thread.

Edit: Another link which shows why this game reminds me of mafia - http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/2715 ... _Pride.php

I can't find any completely free alternatives. If we get a group of players on at the same time though we could all join the same free game (although it would be a non xkcdmafia player hosting, just a randomer with a premium account). I'll be in #xkcdmafia over the next few days if anyone wants to join a game together.
