I'm figuring I'll get to L-2 or so just on joke/policy/meta votes on D1.

This discussion kind of makes me feel like we need to do a meta mafia game... You get a role PM where you play as another player, with abilities/quirks related to their playstyle. I think this was done at least once or twice some years back, but I don't think it's been done recently.

Yeah, I have QMS certification audit next month, and the inspection manager has been in the hospital, and I’ve been debating whether I have two hours a night to spend arguing with plytho playing a friendly game with a bunch of people I like :) . What to do, what to do. But just a few hours ago my supervisor sent me an email explaining that he was busy, but to help me out he was kind enough to attach four standards and support documents I already had, and two templates for forms I had already created myself. And as I pondered his email, telling me to do things I was already doing so that he could take credit for them later, the correct path became clear.

I was so totally going to quote ping Evil George Washington tonight and pester him to sign up for this game. :P

Lights out has 12 signups now, so will be going ahead.
I’ll draw up the game over the weekend (I won’t have time during this week) so signups will remain open ‘til at least Saturday evening my time, if you still want to sign up. Signups for replacements are also welcome.

That means we’re probably looking at starting early to mid next week.

Sounds good.

Balancing the Lynch should be pretty interesting seeing as if there's no limits imposed, a block of confirmed town of size 1 larger than the scum group can win just by systematically lynching everyone not in that group in one day. Which probably means there will be some interesting powers to make this hard.

Oh my. :shock: Hmmm, I’m not sure this is such a good idea. I have enough self-esteem issues without having to watch someone play up all my idiosyncrasies.

The thought of getting to poke fun at someone else appeals to me though. :P

I played in the meta mafia! It was pyp and I chose kro2 because they were a player I really admired back in the day. Ended up as pgo and I often find myself ruminating on not claiming that d1... I wonder if that's why I overclaim now :lol:

Also crap I can't miss signups for lights out.... Count me in!

@George, Zen: in the most recent game it became clear that some of the players struggled with content-overload and could not follow the game as well as they would have hoped. I would never ask you to hold back in your content but please be aware that this might be a legitimate issue here.

Thanks for the congrats in the other thread, EGW.

My finger is still numb and misshapen around where I cut it, I am not sure if it will ever be normal again :/ I'm gettin' old and rough around the edges...

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! viewtopic.php?f=53&t=101040

Ahh yes, the first game I ever played on these fora. That was definitely good fun! I even got to trick USN, which ended up costing me half my win. Good times.

Setting up the game and just noticed that Evil George Washington is signed up but didn't post in the sign-up thread. Seems Zenii signed him up.
Can I get confirmation that he's going to be playing?

Stellaris Mafia:
Spoiler:
I've signed up for replacement, since I have no idea if I'll have time to play over the coming few weeks, but just in case...

Looking forward to the Stellaris-theme. I kind of hope Suzaku's thrown in some wacky "random" events, but I doubt it. Obviously, the main enemy is the Commonwealth, but other species are certainly possible, who may or may not be aligned with Town. I sort of expect roles that vaguely align with the main character (i.e. Governor, General, Scientist, Admiral) or faction ethics types (Xenophobe/Xenophile/Pacifist/Materialist/Spiritualist/Militarist etc) in Stellaris. Let's see where things go though.

Literally no idea how to balance a lights-out setup, but my assumption is that scum will have more power than usual, probably 4 or 3 with an SK. Fully expecting at least one independent (synthetic?), or pseudo-cult (one evil synthetic able to recruit a limited number of allies from other synthetics). That's it for Jimbob's famous guessing for now.

I put PW's chance of getting lynched D1 as approximately 90% :P

Also, with Lights Out, No Lynch might actually be acceptable D1, since it can be made up for thereafter. Not sure though, would need to think about it some more.

Understood. I planned to limit my self to no more than 30-60 minutes on the game each day, so this works out. It also gives me an excuse to coast if I'm scum. 8-)

I recommend just sticking with the same avatar from the moment the game actually starts. Doesn't matter what it is.
