Of course the reavers interest me more. There are multiple ways that they can be interpreted, when many of the other characters are relatively obvious (Simon as doctor, Jayne as vig, Niska as SK). As anti-town, they're also more important to pin down. I'm also not the only one who gave a lot of thought to them (I'd be surprised if anyone here didn't give them a lot of thought, even if they didn't post their thoughts). Adacore's post above mine, for example, has 'a whole paragraph' about Reavers, with only a sentence or two for many of the other characters. Does this make me suspicious of them? No, because when posting role spec, you generally put down what you think as you think it, in an almost flow of consciousness style of writing (that's how I do it, anyway). Since a lot of what you're thinking about is the Reavers, Reavers are a lot of what you write about.Sungura wrote:But all of a sudden he has a WHOLE PARAGRAPH about revers. And not just general musings, some very specific ideas on them, which had hardly or not at all been mentioned by anyone else. The difference between the Rever vs the rest is what stands out to me. Very specific ideas on going mad and how that process would work. Very precise wording.
Judging from flavor, I thought (and still do) that the Reavers were the mafia. But, since there was an episode were a man became a Reaver, I allowed the possibility of conversion. In that episode, the Reavers did not purposefully convert the man--he was the lone survivor of a massacre, and the only way he could cope with what he saw was by losing his mind and gaining Reaver characteristics himself. Because of this, I figured Reavers would not always convert, and would only do so on accident--so mafia, but with a bit of a cult-like quality. Does that make more sense?Sungura wrote:It also bothers me how he said they are likely mafia, but then conversions work by taking people and turning them into serial killers. The latter sounds more like a cult. So...does he think they are mafia or cult? Sounding more and more they are a sk cult as has been suggested and agreed upon vagulely by a few, rather than mafia as others have thought. And I think some keys to its working are in mrface's post.
Role spec is all about opinion, and I wanted input from what other, more experienced players thought.Sungura wrote:("Does that seem like too many scum/indies? I've never played in a game this size, so I'm not sure exactly how they're normally balanced." at the end of his role idea post

Yes. Lynching scummy people is generally the way to go. Would you rather I suggest lynching people who aren't scummy? Lurkers are best to be left to the mod. Finding the real scum is what town should do.Sungura wrote:- Passive "how should i knows" and common "lets lynch scummy people" sentiments throughout

If anything the legend is I make calls based on things everyone else finds to mean nothing and then end up being /right/.
I took a big risk and threw myself into the limelight by saying what I said. I know that. If I am wrong, I KNOW Im gonna be lynched tomorrow. It's how it works. So...why would I risk all that if I wasn't quite sure? Your reasoning makes no sense.

I don't really buy that. FoS: FAOT

At least there was a vote and some reasoning this time, which is better contribution to discussion than most players in the game at the moment.
Oh and there is no need to get personal with the name calling either, it's uncalled for. I assume that you woke up on the wrong side of the bed today or something? /patronising
In the first post. Get a grip roband.
I think you mean bio, mpolo. He was the one that mentioend the alliance. There's clearly too many acronyms relating to names for you to remember!
I do have a question for you though, why do you think Chan's non-commital attack on me was more scummy than (in reverse order); GoP's, Mpolo's or Sungura's?

Lack of independent thought seems to be a common complaint against me. However, when I generally go with reasons to find someone scummy, I'm generally wrong. Can't win there - I'm naturally not a very aggressive player, and have a tendency to look at things from the most charitable point of view because I have done all those things as town. I prefer D1s in games with a lot more unknowns about who could and couldn't be scum, because the differences in ideas makes it easier to find out about stuff. The problem with votes based on 'gut' by other people is that you can't really follow them unless you feel the same uneasiness yourself, and unless you are someone who gets strong gut feelings, this makes stuff difficult.mrface wrote:
I think Book and Wash are both almost certain to be in the game. There aren't a whole lot of other potential town characters.If Serenity and Mr. Universe are both town, though, there would still be 9 townies. So actually, I'm going to leave it open as a possibility. However, claiming someone like Book is super ballsy for scum, so I'm going to leave FAOT as, if not 100% confirmed town, then at least at the top of my list.
I'm also going to withdraw my suspicion of Brook--the continued lack of posts makes me think it really is passive lurking, not active. While still not helpful, it's also not worth lynching over.
Angua's last post is really pinging me. It brings nothing new to the table, and essentially just complains about not liking D1. Nothing can be gained from this--there will always be a D1, and there's nothing to do about it. This seems to me to be an excuse for not saying anything specific or committal. Looking back at the rest of their posts, lack of much independent thought seems to be the trend there as well.
