January 1994, Jackie Onassis, town aligned plot device has passed away. RIP.



I, JACQUELINE K. ONASSIS, of the City, County and State of New York, do make, publish and declare this to be my Last Will and Testament….

Welcome to Last Will & Testament Mafia (of Jackie Onassis and friends)

this is a special occasion for 13+ players

This game has No power roles. I repeat! It is an all vanilla game.

But there is an exception…

Every night every player will send me a PM with a “last will and testament”. A letter that will be read out after they have died. Every letter sent from the start of the game will be published in this way. Each letter will be the minimum length of a 125 characters (a maxed out tweet) with no maximum length.

Upon the death of a player they may send current living player or players gifts from the afterlife concluding their business in life.

:)

Other bullshit rules: Majority lynches, not plurality. No-lynch is an option. No editing posts. No speaking out of thread about the game unless allowed to. Don’t edit your posts. Don’t post mod communication in-thread. No fake day actions. Try not to lurk please. Roles may change but alignments will not under any circumstances. Days will be 72/48/24 hours long. Nights will be 24 hours long. Don’t be a dick. Try to have fun.

It's up to you what you want to write but I recommend writing feelings about the game and the people in it plus maybe a funny joke, who knows it might be your last chance to get your feelings out.

quote:

Dearly beloved, we have gathered you all here today to share with you some terrible news: Diqnol, the strongest, most attractive and cool person in the mafia community has been slain by a band of vile trolls. The significance of his loss cannot be overstated. When you needed a shoulder to cry on, Diqnol was there. When times were tough, giving Diqnol a sensual pm would also yield you great boons. If you just wanted to cheer up, Diqnol would rap for you and make jokes because he was also a multi-talented that was the best at all of them. Yes, Diqnol was the best of us, and he was also the best in us in any way you could interpret that, because he was also so very charming. Genius does not do him justice...super genius. Yes. That was Diqnol. He was a super genius.

He left some words for you all, seeing this disgusting troupe of monsters coming from a mile away. He was a genius. Albert Einstein. Nikola Tesla. Edison. Diqnol:

I like Max for town. Max super committed to trying to hang someone for a dumb joke and was talking about hanging Opop all day in a way that makes me feel like he was earnestly down for both. He said it before Opop was a forgone conclusion, and he seemed genuinely surprised at everyone else's stance on the joke post. He's also said some things I agree with so I feel he is looking at the game from a similar perspective to my own. He's certainly not ~*CONFIRMED TOWN*~ though!

I like MT for town as of now as well. MT has been on the same page as me about a number of things.

Ram was talking about Opop as a forgone conclusion with me before anyone else. I outlined earlier in the thread how he could be scum, but he's right in that I shouldn't be taking that line of logic seriously at this stage of the game. I just wanted to see what he'd do ^_- He's not someone to think about hanging tomorrow~

Viva was pretty strongly opposed to making any vote, I suppose, but she was definitely most opposed to the Opop train. I considered that it might just be a skeptical townie, but nah, this:
quote:

quote:

Diqnol, your case assumes Opop is too dumb to read the thread/relies on meta about your relationship. I need a better reason to vote him atm.

says to me she was intentionally misframing the situation to avoid adding momentum to the hang on her scumbro. When you also consider she didn't lodge a vote for the entire day and that she spent most of the day arguing with people about their cases rather than looking for scum on her own, it stinks. There's also the contradiction that KB noted - that's a good point and is the main reason I think Viva should be our vote for d2. Also don't like that she picked Hal as someone who backed their thoughts up regarding Opop. Smells very, very odd!

I explained earlier why I like Rarity for scum, but a quick summary is that she goes after Wall Monitor for something that seems opportunistic to me rather than a genuine attempt at scum hunting. I now also believe this "case" was designed to distract us from the Opop case I presented. Don't love her ending vote, either.

There are other players in this game, of course, but nothing else really stands out to me! KB I like for town, Hal is neutral/scummy, WM is prolly town, ES and CP are both horrible to read and I have no idea whats up with them and hopefully they implode or something

"Canons to the left of me, canons to the right of me. Stuck in the middle with you.

We all miss TheRam, and his newly acquired lover friend - King Burgundy. He had the capacity to lead, and also was humble enough to follow. He died as he lived, playing mafia and he would like to be remembered that way.

In light of the unfortunate flip on Rarity he has no sorrow, because TheRam believes strongly in fate. Follow my mega-post and it will lead you to the promised land of maybe catching the scum, you should probably make your own conclusions.

My lover-masonry with King Burgundy was bestowed by either Diq or Opop, it was not clarified. If there is any scum powers in addition to the NK it my be ones such as this (effectively a scum vig). If Diqnol attached us together I don't know why, but whatever, I join Diqnol now in Valhalla.

See you again in Valhalla, chillin' with Odin, or maybe I'll catch you at Ragnarok.

Love, peace, blunts and sick beats,

TheRam

Let us also remember that TheRam was a handsome man, he could probably be an incredible male escort for older, but still very attractive women - the kind of guy who you put in a suit, he's bearded - rugged, it clashes with the suit, but at the same time it still looks good because you respect his masculinity.

Amen."

quote:

Ok, fresh off the Opop Cuddle, my feelings remain unchanged. Right now I suspect that WM, Rarity, and Vivanova are bad people in this game. Not all together of course, they are just my top picks for Opop buddies. So if I die before I wake, I would ask that town pursue them with a vengeance. As I start to reread the thread in light of the flip, I’m also having a hard time trusting Exakt and Max.

I want to give a gold star to MMT for being the person I am most sure is town at this point in the game.

quote:

Whelp.

I don't even know anymore. I was soooooo sure Rarity was scum in this game. Rarity sent me a PM after her cuddle saying I was acting like a big jerk in this game and I don't even see it. The one time I was at all mean I tried to do it super jokingly so as not to offend. But if you feel the same way as Rarity, Pmush, I'm super sorry. :(

I'll probably go after the same people I was going after before. Viva, Exakt, WM. Maybe I'll add a lurker into the mix now like Cpig or Hal?

MMT is still super town I guess.

I really wanted to do a big awesome Will like Diqnol's after seeing his yesterday, but now my heart isn't in it anymore.

If you are reading this, I have been killed, likely by Viva. This is bound to happen eventually to someone of my talents and expertise, but it's a pity that it had to happen so soon. However, I will not die without sharing the intelligence I have about who killed President Kennedy. As far as the allegiances of those of us gathered here, the data suggest:

SERIOUSLY CIA

VivaNova
DuckHuntDog

LIKELY LBJ
Max
CapitalistPig
TheRam

SOMEWHAT SOVIET
Rarity
Poison Mushroom
wall monitor

REASONABLY REPTILIAN

Murmur Twin
Hal Incandenza

COOLLY CUBAN

As we all know, the CIA murdered president Kennedy and Oswald was a patsy. Do with this information what you will. Godspeed, Town.

Rest In Peace, Rarity my friend. I sincerely thought you were bad.

I still think Viva is scum, but Rarity's flipping town was honestly very unexpected. I think Max and Wall Monitor are both worthy lines of inquiry. Max because he's the scummiest person on the Rarity dunk and was equally weird about Opop day 1, and Wall Monitor because he was pushing me for being desperate without providing any evidence to support that read. There's also the fact that he was weird on the Opop dunk, but I'm more confident about Viva and Max at the moment.

Day 1... I messed up. I need to post more, I need to be better about answering questions directly, I need to basically not go completely silent when someone is pointing finger of suspicion at me. If I'm alive tomorrow I need to be better.

For what it's worth Fiery still seems a bit suspicious to me, but I'm gonna need something more concrete than gut to go on, especially if I'm going to avoid being targeted tomorrow. It's a question of if the damage is reversible at this point. Wishing I'd gotten on the opop train, that might have improved my chances.

Overall though I'm feeling pretty good about town chances now that we're down one scum. It feels kind of unfortunate that opop went out the way he did but eh, that's how the game goes. Knowing the rules and the quirks of the game is important.

Am I at the word threshold yet? ... Oh, it's 125 characters, not words. Okay. Not much more to say then. I need to post more, I need to be more active and answer questions. If you're reading this then I'm probably dead anyway, go town!, and I hope me acting scummy and getting miscuddled doesn't cost us the game.

Well, I think I've answered my own question as to where I'm any good at this game following a long hiatus: I am not.

That being said, I'm going to ignore my suspicions and actually go against my gut at the moment, because I think there's a better case there.

1) VN. I would take a long hard look at VN. The situation near the end of Day1 could have actually swung away from Opop and instead gone to someone else. VN's case, while I agree with it, could have been a very well constructed attempt at stopping the Opop train.

2) CP didn't do much and came in with the hammer when it was fairly clear that Opop was well and truly done.The majority of his posts are emotes.

3) I 100 percent agree that TheRam's absence is pretty bad, especially since he felt it necessary to make a giant effort post in a simultaneous game that wasn't near deadline, like this one was. That seems like he's a little too gun shy to put his opinion out there in this game, especially after promising he would do so over and over again. He maintained a presence, but it was superficial.

4) I drink hard cider because grain-based alcohol has been seriously upsetting my stomach recently.

quote:

Hello my friends,

If you are reading this, then you already know that your dear, hated frienemy Max is gone from this earth, and you are all better for it.

-Regardless of Rarity's flip, I do think that VN is worth a look, though obviously less so now than before. I know as town I have ignored cases on me (unless I see someone outright lying) and I see VN doing this to some extent D2, so that's points in their favor.

-WM, Cpig, PMush all need a good hard look at this point in time. I have a feeling that at least 1 scum has to be lurking in the background at the moment, especially given how much heat Rarity had on them D2. It would have been very easy to sit back and let that lynch happen (and it did!) proving again that I am not so hot at this game as I once was. Cpig in particular looks rather stinky, especially given their day 1 consistent flow of emotes and little else. Day 2 wasn't much different.

-Pmush is getting another category for themselves, because I really, really want to emphasize the fact that they should not have slid away with that claimed scum joke the way they did, and then went on to contribute little else to the game.

OK, have fun.

quote:

Literally ignore the other two wills, they are useless. Unfortunately, I don't have much for you. If you are reading this, it's because Viva actually is town. Someone gifted me a one-shot bulletproof ability for N3.

I'm not going to mention Viva here, because there's no point. If Viva is dead, I'm dead, and if I'm dead, Viva is dead.

Focus on Byers. I think he is uniquely positioned to kill off the town. I will be very, very happy if this is the case, because it means that Pmush claiming scum and me pushing it was right on the money.

I have a completely null read on CPig at the moment. I think he's just loving around, but in an entirely townie way (I've done this, way back.) I know most of my opinions have been pretty god damned terrible, but there you go.

So that's it. Please lynch Byers. It's legit the right move.

To the son of my faithful private secretary, Giusseppe Pizzapie I leave the bulk of my estate. I thought you would amount to nothing as I watched you grow up. After all who else doesn't get the hang of toilet training until after the age of 5, but it seems that you are one of those "idiot savants", good for nothing but catching scum. Given you skill in this area I feel it appropriate to reward you.

To my long serving butler, Duck Hunt Dog, you have served me faithfully my friend over many, many years and so to you I leave my holiday house on the Greek Island of Iona.

To my mechanic, Capitalist Pig, I leave my collection of vintage cars. Although every time I went to talk to you, Capitalist Pig, you were bent over an engine showing me your butt crack in full and repugnant glory, I believe you have served me well.

To assorted hangers on and distant family members -- Hal, King Burgundy, Murmur Twin and Poison Mushroom -- I leave you each $1000. Spend it wisely.

For those I have not yet bequeathed anything on -- Exact Science, Max, Rarity, TheRam, VivaNova and Wall Monitor -- you have disappointed me greatly in these last days and I leave you nothing.

I find myself rewriting my will with a heavy heart. That dear little boy Diqnol is dead -- and of autoerotic asphyixiation. What a terrible way to go.

I hereby leave all my belongings to be divided between DHD, MT, Cpig, Hal and TheRam, on the provision that they kill Exact.

Everyone else can get lost.

quote:

This is my last will and testament blah blah blah.

What a disaster of a day. I've re-read and think it is Viva and her scum buddy is likely Cpig.

Read Viva's posts. Lots of words, very little actual content. She's happy to talk mechanics, wifom, mafia-dad stuff. Even on D2 when her biggest push was exact she didn't make an original case, just referred to others.

If she does flip scum, then I think her most likely scum buddy is Cpig. He's just sitting back, doing nothing, getting ignored.

If Viva flips town, I think it's Byers instead.

Good luck town!!

quote:

So, I guess Pig wasn't lying then.

I gave DHD a pass on D2 because he was on the Opop vote early and vocally, but his push on Hal was terrible. I thought it was pretty obvious at the time that Hal was town but I never pointed out how I felt about DHD pushing him.

However, if you're down to four players then absolutely the best thing to do is VOTE NO LYNCH kids.
