So how about some content, we've only got 27 hours to figure out which David Bowie is Jareth and who his goblin minion is before they take out Ziggy Stardust.

Right-o. Unfortunately, I'm realizing I don't know any of the meta (or have a stupid D1 grudgevote to throw out), so I'm a little at loose ends...

Yeah, only thing I have to go on is flavor, and depending on the moderator that can give away power roles so pushing for that can be seen as pretty scummy. Then again, having nothing to work with at all is even worse for town than getting their power roles nightkilled, so it'd probably be best to share flavor information without being explicit. I'll go first, my flavor is a part of David Bowie's personal life that I wasn't even aware of but I also thought until a year ago that the line in Ziggy Stardust was "rubber messiah" instead of "leper messiah," so I'm not exactly up to speed on the guy. It's not one of his characters or anything, so it'd be helpful if someone chimed in to say "I'm Ziggy Stardust" or at least "I'm one of his famous characters" so we know if those are a thing in this game. I know that's not much to work with, but the more we learn about everybody's flavors the more we know what's safe to share.

For what it's worth, this is only my second game of mafia and I was lynched day 1 in my first, so I'm still not really up on the meta or anything.

This is an open setup, and flavor shouldn't make roles guessable-- so there's really no reason to share, or not share, aside from fun

I'm going to vote for ##vote mr.capps

Because
(a) no one has voted yet and imo the sooner you vote with intention the sooner you get ~usable content~
(b) the last game I was in with capps he posted nonsense and was scum and I have no reason to believe he will post not-nonsense this game

i.e., while I don't have any read on capps now, I don't except to get a better one, so fmpov it's a decent blind vote.

Good point, also there's a 1/4 chance that there's no town roles anyway. I just figure it gives people something game-related to talk about and generate content with. So in that spirit, I'm David the Loving Father of a son who definitely isn't a piece of poo poo. And a daughter too I guess.

That looks like a reasonable case for a first vote but with only 5 votes to hammer I don't want to hop on immediately. I'll lay down a vote later tonight, but first I gotta make dinner.

You sound like me, always reading games after dinner.

We have a day until hammer, so some tentative votes will get things rolling and hopefully enough people will post to make an informed final vote!

I think yuming is the Japanese collaborator. Look, it's simple. With two collaborators, it makes no sense to execute without information. You're more likely to hit honest soldiers. Wild accusations are suspicious and bad for morale.

Vote yuming

If you were trying to vote you have to do it in in bold, with two hashes, like this:

Also that's a semi-real vote. I'll switch to a lurker later tomorrow if there are any, and to capps if he's posting nonsense and there are no lurkers, but I have no idea wtf that post was.

This is a game of Mafia with a F11 setup (http://mafiawiki.notesmash.org/wiki/F11). Each player is a part of David Bowie's personality, vying for control of his addled brain. The fate of one of the greatest rock stars is in your hands!

quote:

F11 is an open setup for 9 players. There are four possible variations, and the mod RNGs it once signups are closed. The four variations are:
1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Roleblocker, 1 Sane Cop, 1 Doctor, 5 Vanilla Townies.
1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Roleblocker, 7 Townies.
2 Mafia Goons, 1 Sane Cop, 6 Townies.
2 Mafia Goons, 1 Doctor, 6 Townies.

As with C9, each variant has an equal probability of occurring.

One of the setups is 7 vanilla town.

Look mates, voting day one with no information is a bad play.

You have a 3/4 chance of hitting a friendly. So I'm suspicious of anyone willing to take that chance.

We're two short (Antivehicular's vote isn't being counted because he put in a space), yuming and EXAKT switch your votes or somebody else vote for BrainParasite. I mean I'd vote for capps but effectively pushing for a no-lynch like BP did is really scummy, we can vote for capps tomorrow if nobody else really sticks out.

yuming, Allen Wren, and Chic Trombone all come off pretty strongly town, BrainParasite strongly scum, and EXAKT Science I'm getting a weak scum vibe (the bandwagon vote for capps was innocuous, but posting without switching to a better lynch candidate as the deadline approaches is suspicious). No read on capps, Taste, or Antivehicular but I'm not expecting a read on capps.
