I will say though that a scum self hammer really feels like a way to try and prevent a scumbro from having to vote for them because people tend to look it the votes for a bus (:v:) when scum is voted out, and you and Gulag were the only ones who didn't vote toal that are still alive (with the third being dead town)

I thought mona was scum and bussed them or attempted to because of their interactions with toal. I've been misled

I dont have a read.

I'd say the lowest post count might even be good enough place to start. There can't be more then one more scum imo

The discussion seemed muted, as if the racers were growing nervous about all the crashes, and at the end of the day no decision could be made.

The day has ended in a no execute. Night actions may be submitted at this time.

Make sure you submit all night actions to me, not SK

(Sorry for the undue delay, had a real rollercoaster [or maybe bus ride????] of a day yesterday)

The race, and the search for the saboteurs, was heating up and tensions were high. The bus drivers returned to the track to resume the race when they noticed one of the buses looked a lot more damaged than it had the day before. Closer inspection revealed severe mechanical damage to the engine compartment...and a dead driver behind the wheel!

Dick Bastardly, Driver of Bus 65, has died N3.

The busses whizzed around and around, faster and faster. Everyone thought that there was no chance that there wouldn't be another crash. Suddenly, someone ran in front of a bus, as if to stop it cold...but this time, their sabotage failed. The bus kept moving, and....splat.

GulagDolls, Scum Roleblocker, died Day 4!

The town has won the game!

I will post more later, but for now I want to thank Mr. Humalong very sincerely for running almost half of this game. I had a serious personal tragedy happen and he jumped right in and ran a reasonably complex setup with no issue. Seriously, thank you.

Iím not going to lie, the first 3 drivers all picking the same two targets threw me for a complete loop and I had to doublecheck with Pod on how to handle it.

Other than that it was no problem, glad I could help and heck yeah I had a scum pegged minutes into the game.

claiming bus driver in the bus driver mafia game is a bad idea, when there happens to be a guy who can check if youre ab us driver or not, and also cant be killed due to all the bus drivers.

I think the application this game swung it over pretty strongly. I can easily see two cops counter claiming each other and both getting offed.

hello! thank you all for playing.

The setup was shamelessly cribbed from one of the possible setups for Campfire Mafia which ran earlier this month, except I changed all the vanilla town to bus drivers, changed the "Neapolitan" (vanilla/PR cop) to a bus driver cop that wasn't affected by bus drives, and added an additional night action to the scum team (each scum player had their own night action & the nightkill was a separate action not tied to a specific player). There was no further rebalancing done.

One improvement would be a way to somehow give the bus driver cop a reason not to claim right away. Probably specifying "immune to bus drives" and not "immune to all redirects" would have been better for obfuscating night results, but I think it treads the line on being too cute with wording to the players, and I do not think it solves the problem of immediate claims due to targeting randomness.

Anyway, thanks again, and once again a huge thanks to Humalong for coming in and keeping the wheels on. I enjoyed writing the setup and hope that you all had fun.

I also did most of the legwork without the role itself.

Hard to really say in a game with as few posts as this one. I was certainly unsure enough at first that if people were actually talking and playing the game I could have ended up with different targets. But with little to no discussion outside of day 2 all I could really do was just push my own thoughts and hope people went along with them.

I think the two no-lynches probably hurt scum more than my role did.
