Okay, so I trust the people in my masonry. I'm still iffy on Jedit, but I've been mostly convinced that he's cool. Fiery_Valkyrie has been playing her butt off, and has mostly suffered due to Australian time zones.

CPig is CPig and I kinda hate him, but I still think he's town (maybe because I'm bad at Mafia?).

Hal and Juanito have been nigh-on zero content to their posts, and if they don't post more, they're going to the top of my scum list.

I still have a largely null read on MMM, but Somber's case read pretty good to me.

Meinberg and Somber here is my last defence. Please read it and answer each point.

Winson pointed out something I didn't really think about before but if I were scum my power would move EXLO up by one day, allowing a scum turbo quicker than expected.

Both of you seem exasperated at the lack of play in this thread, you can say you think I've been scummy but you can't say I haven't posted and cooperated.

Finally, What about Somber's case has been paticularly good? The part where I had a town read on Pig despite thinking he is awful? That is exactly what meinberg and Juanito have expressed as well. The part where I didn't cut enough time into my work shift to hammer the first night?

I think that you're intentionally leaving out several core components of Somber's case, like your willingness to lean on emotional pleas and your lack of case work. The only person you actually case is Hal, and you immediately revoke your case afterwards.

I think that your reinterpretation of Somber's case is another of these emotional pleas, and is pretty scummy, in all honesty.

That's fair I guess. I mean I don't really appreciate the accusation that I've been making emotional pleas because I am not a fan of those but I can see why it has appeared that way.

The sun was setting, yet it still wasn't even dusky. Just that late part of the day when the heat sets in and things get uncomfortable. So uncomfortable, it seems, that one of the people feuding over the World took out a shotgun. That wasn't the unusual part, weapons are easy to come by in Apocalypse World. The unusual part is that they blew their own drat head off. That'll fuckin' show them.

Votecount for Day 2

MildManeredManikin (6): Somberbrero, Somberbrero, Somberbrero, Meinberg, CapitalistPig, Winson_Paine, MildManeredManikin, MildManeredManikin
Somberbrero (0): Somberbrero, Meinberg, CapitalistPig, Somberbrero, MildManeredManikin, Somberbrero, Meinberg, MildManeredManikin, Somberbrero, CapitalistPig
Winson_Paine (0): CapitalistPig, CapitalistPig

Not Voting (5): fiery_valkyrie, Grandicap, Hal Incandenza, Jedit, Juanito

With 10 alive, it's 6 votes to lynch.

On Day 2, MildManneredMannikin, World-Aligned Battlebabe, was executed!

quote:

Even in a place as dangerous as Apocalypse World, battlebabes are, well. They’re the ones you should walk away from, eyes down, but you can’t. They’re the ones like the seductive blue crackling light, y’know? You mistake looking at them for falling in love, and you get too close and it’s a zillion volts and your wings burn off like paper. Dangerous.

You are Violetta, World-Aligned Battlebabe. You win when all threats to the World are eliminated.

Basic Move:
Go Aggro: During the day, you may ##vote.

Battlebabe Moves:
Merciless: If you ##vote someone who is at -2, it is a double vote and hammers.
Impossible Reflexes: You are one-shot bulletproof.


It is now Night 2. Night 2 will end at approximately 8:30pm tomorrow; T-22 hours.

The sun rises again on Apocalypse World, with one fewer living soul. Somberbrero was a large power broker in the area, with authority over many. But even the powerful die just as the weak do.

On Night 2, Somberbrero, World-Aligned Hardholder, was killed!

quote:

There is no government, no society, in Apocalypse World. When hardholders ruled whole continents, when they waged war on the other side of the world instead of with the hold across the burn-flat, when their armies numbered in the hundreds of thousands and they had loving boats to hold their loving airplanes on, that was the golden age of legend. Now, anyone with a concrete compound and a gang of gunluggers can claim the title. What other authority is there?

You are Vega, World-Aligned Hardholder. You win when all threats to the World are eliminated.

Basic Move:
Go Aggro: During the day, you may ##vote.

Hardholder Moves:
Leadership: Four other players (at random) are your lieutenants.
Wealth: Each night, you may roll 2d6 for the next day. 10+, gain a ##secondvote. 7-9, look into your hold. You may privately ##investigate any of your lieutenants, but if you do, you may not vote for any of your lieutenants. The results of the investigation will be sent to you ASAP. 6-, you are -1 to lynch. If you get to -2 and survive, you gain +1. If you get to -1 and survive, you gain +2..

You may use Wealth Night 0.


It is now Day 3.

Somber had confided in me that he had used his investigative ability on Grandi on N0 and got a town result. Since there's nothing to suggest that Somber's sanity might be in question, or that Grandi's role would provide Godfather status, I choose to believe this.

I feel quite chagrined myself, as I chose to investigate Somber last night, instead of protecting him. He had been fairly sure that the scum would be going after him, but my doubt kept me back, especially after MMM flipped town. If FV is not scum, then I'm positive that our scum is somewhere between Hal and Juan.

To doubledown. My vig failed either because I am a faulty vig, and that is unlikely because I take excellent care of my weaponry. Or f_v is BP, but we already had a town BP flip so vOv.

I buy your claim, but this game already has a ambigious town protective role, a town BP, a town busdriver. 11 players. Is there really room for another protective role on town's side? More likely it gives you investigation immunity in addition to the accidental benefit of stopping my guns.

Why did you stop my guns val? Why?
