No it's cool I'm just laughing about how I was right about Lumpen, but for all the wrong reasons. Everyone I thought was town was scum, everyone I thought was scum was town. I'm a mafia super star!

I'd been happy, and I was happy still. For all to be accomplished,
for me to feel less lonely,
all that remained to hope
was that on the day of my execution
there should be a huge crowd of spectators and that they should
greet me with howls of execration.

I'm extending an olive branch that can offer you guys either a shared victory, or even a Town victory depending on how the Mod would rule an "eternal peace" (I don't think wincons were specified, but if we vote out Charms today and then agree on and demonstrate the non-aggression pact loop, then I would say both of the traditional wincons "all threats to Town are eliminated", and also "Secret Alliance has achieved uncontestable control" would be satisfied, in the particular case I anticipate possible).

If Charms is not voted out today I will have no choice but to pursue and execute a Secret Alliance victory and endgame all of you.

As for Charms...

Okay actually that is wrong, you do still have the ability to hand the win to Charms if that's what you decide.

It would be a lot cooler to defeat Charms and achieve peace though. Not possible in most setups but an actual scenario here because of a setup quirk.

Sal and Hum, are you at all persuadable? What outcome do you want for this game? Are you refusing to vote out Charms because you don't believe my offer, or because you don't care?

Please do it, I promise it will be cool. Pick the awesome ending. If you join me and vote out the SK today, I swear I will withhold my kill, the three of us will remain alive, I swear I will vote no-lunch and trust you guys not to vote me out, and so on, ad infinitum. Happily ever after.

My pushback on content game is that is twofold:

1) It allows scum players to hide. For example, in this argument I'm scum. Nobody has asked me questions, thus I can just sort of skate through without providing actual content.

2) If Lumpen is scum, it allows him the ability to endlessly post questions to other players without having to defend his own opinions.

Content game on later days is fine, however content game on D1 (especially like an hour into the game being open) is dumb.

You should never trust a scum player. Their entire win condition is met by lying to town.

They can kill each other tonight, or they can hope they both target you. My money is on one of them targeting the other, though. Let them worry about that, though. You and me? We just kick back and wait to see what happens. Maybe they off each other, maybe they donít.

I hope you will reconsider. Since I claimed, everything I have said is completely true. I'm appealing to my meta here. I prefer being Town. I dislike lying. I don't do audacious gambits. I don't have any reputation for tricking people in my 11 years of playing. My wins as non-Town are usually through luck, good night action strategy, and just acting Towny in the thread. I'm not a good deceiver or betrayer, and I don't want to acquire that meta. It would not be worth it just to win this particular game.

I am being 100% honest about everything I have said today. When you see the chart of actions and read the chats and confessionals you'll see. I want to end the game the best way and I want us all to live and win cooperatively except the lurking SK.

If you donít vote Charms, hopefully at least this will stand as an example of my reliability for future games if I ever manage to get into a similar situation. But I suppose this is unprecedented and not likely to ever align this way again.

Thank you all for the great game.

There are a few things I think I could have balanced differently, but with the roles being assigned after being created it's hard to gurantee balance.

I did make sure scum were not adjacent in the power up wheel, and the Survivor and SK were tweaked quite a bit after being added.

I hope town just decides to follow Lumpen into oblivion because that is probably what is going to happen.
:lumpen:

I did want peace though!
My plan from confessional:
"Lumpen Last Monday at 11:52 AM
If I can convince Sal and Hum to vote Charms, I intend to withhold the kill and develop Loved. Then on the next day I intend to vote no-kill. If if they defect and try to vote me out and fail because I'm Loved, I will endgame them that night. But if they also vote no-kill, I will withhold again and gain doublevote. That day I will once again invite them to repeat the no-kill, and either repeat ad infinitum, or double-vote to end it if I am ever betrayed.
As mod you could rule the eternal standoff as a win for whoever you think is thematically appropriate. If my refusal to kill non-betrayers means Town wins and the Secret Alliance loses, so be it!"

Lumpen developed the 1-shot lightning rod power. They wanted to gurantee no one died to a second vig from cpig and weren't sure if you were gonna mega jail.
