You're welcome.

I did once write some Garfield fanfic, where he was a delusion of John Wilkes Booth.

Sorry my friend. My powers are actually useless!

Poque, let's rap.

How much of this is an act? A put on show because you think it needs to be said. And how much of this is you genuinely not wanting to play the game? You can be honest with me. I won't judge you.

And so begins our bizarre adventure.

I have vitally important information I can provide to the player base. But I can only reveal a very limited amount of this information. I shall have to consider this... carefully.

fiery_valkyrie posted:

Do we have to sex you to get the info? Will you reveal more with a few penetrating glances and heaved bosoms?

No, it's just that you guys are unlikely to believe what I have to say. Mostly because it's me saying it.

Jefepato posted:

Meinberg, are your restrictions really so bizarre that you can't even tell us what you can or can't tell us?

How do the limits on it work? Can we advise you at all on what to tell us?

I've actually said everything that I am allowed to say about my role. Good stuff.


You're the most belligerent player in the game, and you're pretty good at scumhunting when you're town. Knowing I can trust you, or that I should get rid of you, is a valuable insight.

Hm, on the one hand, a D1 thunderdome is pretty shaky, since we don't have the slightest grasp on who is, and who is not scum yet.

On the other hand....

If mercy and compassion indeed. Except he said he was having the most fun he's ever had in mafia, so it's not kindness or a vote on someone you think is scum, which I think is scummy of you meinberg. Are you meinscum in this game?

Nah. I'm a good guy.

At the end of D1, I got to choose what faction I thought was going to win the game. I should have been smart and went with 3P, but no... I ended up thinking that scum would win. And I was so close to that goal. So close, but Hal's brilliant fuckery brought about my defeat.

Also, you guys are mean in those docs. :(

Jefepato posted:

I don't think MMM's flip actually said "scum" either, even though he was.

Meinberg what were your other questions?

Here are my original questions:

Does the scum team have more than one night kill?
Is there more than one scum team?
Are there any Third-Parties with night kills?
Is flavor related to alignment?

and

Is the game well balanced?

That last one was deemed an opinion and I tossed it out, and asked whether or not Diqnol was scum. The answer to every question was no.

I'm finished with Mafia myself. I just don't have the time and/or energy to apply to the game. Plus, I'm terrible at it. And everyone is always mean to me.

meinberg you're a cool guy sorry i tried to lynch you i am bad at mafia and was just going on what little info i had

I'm actually cool with people. I just have trouble keeping the game and personal feelings separate, but with some distance, things get better. It's one of the reasons I shouldn't play Mafia, though.

Not reading your role PM is unfair because it lets you post with a town mindset, regardless of alignment. It defeats the purpose of the entire concept of Mafia as a game.

Look at this idiot, thinking that this game was actually Mafia.
