Lynch a lurker. At least I'm promising to be here tomorrow. Don't make it like other games where everyone who talked was lynched, and then only lurkers were left.

You've not been that talkative. And when you have, it's generally been to muddy the waters about how "your plan" will take till tomorrow, or some other such claim. The lurkers can be lynched or replaced. At the moment, I see your wild claims to be a nuisance. Either you are jesster, mafia, or a confusion-creating townie. Any of those seem to be a valid reason to lynch.

Honestly, that's pretty much how I feel though. By the "people that are probably more likely to be mafia" comment, really I just meant that we still don't know if ootd is a jester, mafia, or even a townie+silly bastard; and at least one of the lurkers are sure to be mafia. Kyle (who did just show up), Radman, and Seabee (still with no post content) all need to be seriously considered.

This is my stance. Lynch me if you wish.

The whole idea of a jester is flawed.

Why?, you ask?

Simple. It does not fill the niche that it should.

When you lynch a jester, it should hurt the town. Right now, it does not hurt when a jester is lynched. It's a bland role. It's like if the mafia could win by become friends with the town. A jester muddies the water. This hurts the town. When the jester is lynched, they win, but the loses this worry. This should not be. Why letting a third party win help the town? Maybe some insane PyP game, but in a vanilla, or vanillaish game? No. The town or scum should win without any other faction. There are 2 solutions to this problem. 1. Make the jester win the whole game and end it when they are lynched, however, this is unfeasible in a 30 player game. 2. Is the jesterbomb. It makes the people cautious, and it makes the jester have to be less obvious. When you take out a townie or scum when you win, it makes it a lot less desirable to allow you to win. This should be done for all jesters in games, outside of minis, or specific setups.

I was testing a theory on jesters I had, which I realized had the problem detailed above: It helps everyone to lynch the jester. Lynch me if you wish, I can no longer test my theory, and I think that I've screwed with this day enough =p.

...I'm pretty sure the lyncher wants their target lynched rather than night-killed.

And there's something I'm not getting. I'm trying to get OOTD night-killed. I want him dead. How is it that him potentially being Mafia changes that fact? I worked out a method to get him killed without us wasting a lynch, in case he is Jester. How would the Mafia protect him from being targeted?

If I'm Mafia, I'd have no way to stop him from dying. If I was a Serial Killer, then I'm clearly not Mafia and hold no allegiance to OOTD (assuming he's Mafia).

Your logic is flawed.

I'm going to vote for him, because clearly if I can't get anyone in the town to listen to me, I'm not going to have an effect on a Serial Killer. Y'all are stupid.

Unvote.
Vote: OOTD

Once we create an environment that is conducive to clear discussion. :wink:

Let's put forward 2 possibilities:
1. He's jester
I'm assuming he is jester, which means he is not mafia, which means we shouldn't lynch. If you can write him off as jester, why lynch him just because he's annoying? His words lose all weight as his main goal is to get lynched, and he's dead by day 3 due to suicide if we don't lynch.

2. He's Mafia
If he's mafia and NOT jester, he won't suicide on day 3 and we can kill him then, and we'll be lynching scum. Why not lynch him now? Because it doesn't stop the mafia NKing by getting 1 scum. To me it's a proposition whereby you don't have to listen to a word he says and the truth will come out in time. While we're waiting, why don't we search for scum? The only caveat would be the chance he was a mafia power role, such as assassin, but not only is there no mention of mafia power roles, but it seems highly unlikely for a skilled player to draw so much attention on themselves if they were.

Now, you saying "At least one of the lurkers is sure to be mafia" is another outlandish claim with no real logic behind it. You're being very presumptuous and you'll have to be careful about that, because it makes you look like you know more than a straight townie possibly could.
oneofthedragon wrote:The whole idea of a jester is flawed.

I agree with this, jesters should at least take the hammer down with them or something, otherwise the town is nonchalant about killing them. But that's beside the point. I think you just claimed Jester anyway. As to whether anyone actually believes you, that's another story.

Wait, now we're back to the Day Three thing. Wasn't that a mistake?

We can't assume he's a jester. WIFOMIFOYIFOMetc. Several people have said that already, and I agree with them. But lynching a lurker still seems preferable to me, if only because OOTD is certainly getting discussion going and giving us more to work with based on how people are reacting to that.

I have two questions. Does the jester commit suicide on Day Three? Will lurkers be replaced in the near future?

OOh ok for the content post:
(well actually, mod question!)
DO jesters suicide on N3?
There has been talk of this and I thought it was NO (I mean, i was even jester on the IRC once, and I didn't suicide N3!) but now IS is claiming that to be the case again?

I agree if jesters suicide on N3 it is NOT a good idea to lynch ootd today, because in my understanding he should still help the town while alive (other than water muddying, but how bad can that be? We just ignore him!) However, if the jester does NOT suicide on N3, then I think we should still lynch him.

I could easily be wrong, but I wouldn't think a jester would give a damn about the town either way. He couldn't actively help the mafia 'cause he doesn't know who they are, but he wouldn't have any particular interest in helping the town, yeah? In fact, he'd have an active interest in antagonizing the town so that they lynch him already. If OotD is jester, he's doing rather a brilliant job at this. If he's not, well, I have nothing good to say about his alleged 'strategies', then. I think the twelve-odd votes he's got right now would make that pretty much objective fact.

Oh, and Seabee? Sexy Party's already gone through, God help us all. I get the feeling I should probably go on and apologise for my small part in that right now, before the rush. :|

On research my definitions of Jester do not explicitly state any suicide plans. The Jester is simply considered victorious if they are lynched, with the town/mafia coming second place depending on the outcome of the game. If the jester is not lynched by the time the mafia have majority or all been lynched, the Jester loses.

The mafia will not kill the Jester as he muddies water and draws suspicion away from them.
The town are not supposed to lynch the Jester as it is a wasted lynch and essentially loses them the game, regardless of the fact that the game always goes on.

The town usually kills the Jester under the assumption that it's safer than risking a mafia roleclaiming Jester and disregards the whole "but that means the town technically loses" thing.

So the day 3 suicide was a one off in a crazy round, I guess. Something like that, anyway.
I guess we can kill OotD. But yeah, I totally agree, the Jester is a ridiculous role and should carry a penalty to actually make it more interesting than a day 1 "HAY GUYZ I'M SCUM KILL ME LOLS!" and everyone going "You're the Jester, but we don't care."

Killing him provides a good springboard to tomorrow's discussion, because we will know his role for sure that way.
And he could be pulling a giant bluff, expecting to be able to ward off votes.

But if he's jester, or a townie who simply doesn't care about the game too much, he should be safe to keep alive.

Actually, that's a pathetic reason to keep him alive. And the jester sucks, I don't care if I kill him. And as much as lynching lurkers is a good plan, it's a good plan when there's no obvious choices for scum.

As far as I can see, without the day 3 suicide there's no way of ever knowing. Kinda forces my hand.

Vote: OotD
If you turn up town, all I can say is quit being a Nebuduck.
