I'm delirious on cold medicine right now but it doesn't make any sense.

Or, if he feels like I do, he's frustrated by the game and just wants it to end.

If four more people switch, then we can smash Ixt today. He's probably the most likely path to avoid a no-smash.

Memo from William Kidd, Head of Amalgamated Meatjuice Inc. to Stockholders

Gentlemen,

There comes a time in an industry when something happens that changes the very nature, the very fate of a company for the better. Think about when King Pepsi the VI finally slayed Baron von Spritestein in the great duel or when Yamaha realized The-Dream made a song about comparing a woman's rear end to their bikes and mandated all bikes would play it at start up. Groundbreaking things.

This, I say, is our moment.

The brilliant scientists down in our research division have sent me satellite photos of the supposed "Monster Island." Why I dare say it should be called "Meatjuice Paradise Island" if we should have anything to say about it. Imagine if you will the pictures I have on my desk right now. They are glorious. Giant hogs the size of skyscrapers and, most recently, a cow bigger than even the largest of our yachts. The island is even cooking them to the precise, most delicious temperature for our enjoyment as I speak!

This is the time we need to strike, when we can finally get the advantage over those clods in Meat Futures Enterprises. We send a strike crew and some giant trawlers - grab us enough ribs, ground beef and steaks that we can bring and... I will just say I smell the future and it is MEATY.

I have attached the following mission plan. Please look over it and be prepared to talk about it at the next board meeting.

-William

I honestly feel like the scum must know each other by now. There must have been some sort of breadcrumb they've given that we can't pick up on. I would be extremely surprised if they were still totally in the dark.

Here is my (far fetched) theory, that I only mention for bragging rights if I'm correct: there are no scum, there never were. There is 1 more SK.

A Faded Planet, Floating in the Cold Grasp of Space

It's a wonderful solar system - eight planets, pieces of debris, a few broken mechanical objects (some as large as the moons they are in orbit with). It was once a promising zone with the possibility for great things. It could have even reached enlightenment given a couple more years and a few revolutions.

One planet in particular had great potential - a small orb that use to be filled with blue-green color. Now it's just grey, quiet and calm. Its inhabitants are long gone - either consumed, stomped or destroyed. The things that did this are long gone. Some may have died in the fighting after the fact. Others probably escaped back to their dimension. Nobody knows really.

But let's zoom in on a single island of this small rock. Nobody knows or cares about this now, but it was the very beginning of the planet's terrible destruction. If an ancient traveler wandered on this island they would see thousand of battle scars.

The skeleton of a giant woman.
The remains of three very similar dinosaurs - one older, one hip and with it, and one robotic.
The shell of a humongous crab.
The carapace of a giant moth.

But there are more planets, more things to discover, why focus on this nonimportant hunk of rock when there's a whole universe to explore? I know a station down on Elkin IV where the spacedrinks will blow your mind!

Monathin (Role: Mnelvth, He Who Catnaps Forever) Destruction-Aligned Backup Multidimenional Being
Science of Suck (Giganticus, the Elder Cyclops) Destruction-Aligned Godfather/2-Shot Bulletproof Cyclops

have won the game!

The Ghost/Mod/Setup doc is here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1CfmiB7R0v_nMShwUDZmwl0aasgLUjhISSoh7uWdVarw/edit#gid=0

Mostly this game came from me wanting to see what would happen if scum didn't know each other and there was an alignment swapping role.

Then I thought it might be cool to make everything x-Shot and have a role that recharges them.

I think that were I to run this setup in the future I would give scum and town both a charger and make the bastard the only 3p.

Also, I probably shouldn't have made the cop Robot only considering the only miller and godfather were both not robots.

All In all I think that some of the key roles were gone too soon or not utilised.

It was fun flavor and enjoyable to run.

Don't use alignment switchers, but especially don't when scum don't know each other.
Also something should have happened where scum eventually communicated.

I was reasonably active until there was an alignment switcher, then I kind of lost the plot on what I was doing

I mayyy have played up my inexperience with the online format of mafia a bit. :shobon:

I am kind of surprised I managed to keep a hunch on two of my fellow scumbuds, though. I felt confident Bowmore was scum and at least tried a meta where I tried my hardest to be town even if I was suspicious myself. It seemed to work well enough for my survival.
