Hahah, oh, wow, rad.

So, yeah, everyone's either been flipped or roleclaimed but one, which Bowie was yuming?

Yuming, it was great to finally play a game with you. You ruined everything for me, and I should have killed you that last night. Good win~

Allen, you are way better at Mafia than you're willing to give yourself credit for. Trust your reads more!

Antivehicular, I hope you had fun with your first SA game! I like your style and hope you stick around and play more Mafia here!

Squid, I wanted to kill you N1, and now I know why. You were on point from the outset of the game, and that first cop investigation was, imo, one of the major things that contributed to town's victory.

Yeah, Squid literally investigated both scum. Had he not it would have been much more difficult. Still, it went to LYLO so.

Haha, I was pulling my hair at your "I'm the Doctor, really guys!" routine because 1) I'd investigated you the night you killed me and 2) if we had both a cop and a doctor, you would have been roleblocked the instant you claimed, but you managed to buy a fair bit of time with that trick even if it didn't get you to the finish line.

It was fun knowing how to play town, but now I'm concerned about my META OH NO, if I always play a super strong town game that'd make things rough if I ever get assigned a scum role. Also, it might not be super safe to appear ultra-townie when you've got a power role, but I feel like I pulled off the balance about as well as possible, especially considering my lucky hunches for investigations.

Finally, it'd be cool if every mafia game had pronouns in the signup, I figured yuming was a she but Chic Trombone and Antivehicular I had no clue (I'm a he, btw).

Hahaha, I figured as much. Having that PR and a very absent scumbuddy made it a pretty uphill battle for me. I didn't think I would win, but I had a lot of fun with the gambit. When I did it, I actually thought to myself "haha, I bet Squid investigated me N2 and knows I'm completely full of poo poo." I hope to play more games with you where we're on the same team.

I appreciate that. I think it helped that this was something more of a low-volume game (note my current flailings in Consumerism and Just Post.)

Honestly, I was about to pull the trigger on Anti (which is loving hilarious for reasons I will not get into right now), but that is a drat good question.

The hilarity is that Antivehicular and I are a couple and she got me into Mafia in the first place by telling me these insane stories of games she's been in and run on other forums.

Also, this game inspired me, in the near future I'm hoping to run a game where the roles are all players in LA's music scene circa 1976.

Blargh, that's right -- setups with both a Cop and a Doctor would have had a scum roleblocker, wouldn't they have? I'm way too used to playing in games where the setup is opaque or semi-opaque. I should have double-checked. Still, it was a good Hail Mary attempt, just one with a lot of flaws.

I thought of correcting people on pronouns, but honestly, I've been called a dude enough on the Internet by now that it doesn't really faze me. As long as you're not insisting that I have to be a dude and I and the mutual friend who has met me in person are both lying, it's not the worst I've seen.

I don't think anyone really did on a serious level, I think the point was just being raised because there were moments where people didn't know what pronoun was appropriate.

I have two nonbinary friends so I try and stay on top of those things. I don't think I really referred to anyone with a pronoun other than "they" though so...

Also! I actually did assign flavor/roles randomly. It's kind of funny that Jareth and The Thin White Duke both ended up being scum though. If I ever run David Bowie Mafia II I'm going to be sure to have the Duke be some kind of scum role. It's really amusing that you all kinda converged on that idea separately.

Hahaha, whoops. I was actually a little worried about breadcrumbing David Jones, since I didn't know if he was going to be seen as someone who was trying to kill off the Bowies or someone who was trying to protect them.

This was a fun game! I appreciate the smaller size and lack of ~role madness~ for sure.

EXAKT reneged on his PR and I allowed it because I thought actually having a PR in a simple game would be stupid. He probably would have won had he not come up with the idea. Heathen was a lovely album.

"All that cocaine has loving wrecked your cognitive functions" is the best reasoning for a post restriction I've ever seen.

(I'm kinda negative on PRs at the moment. I played an all-PR game where someone got modkilled for basically not amusing the mods enough; it was a complete shitshow.)

That's a cover and Bowie can cover whatever drug-fueled fever dreams he wants.

Toy might have been the better record, had it been polished and finished, but I am a total sucker for "Slip Away", "Slow Burn" and "Everyone Says Hi."
