I'd been happy, and I was happy still. For all to be accomplished,
for me to feel less lonely,
all that remained to hope
was that on the day of my execution
there should be a huge crowd of spectators and that they should
greet me with howls of execration.

Hey, now that we can all be honest, can anyone demonstrate whether this setup can actually be broken by a D1 massclaim?

I don't think it can. The scum can just claim versatile town then kill the power roles, and then there would have to be another mass claim later where the scum can change their claims because of how the backups works

I can do anything!



I'd love to try it. Someone should run one of these with the intent being the D1 massclaim just to see.

Who says that the town have to be honest during massclaim? I almost feel like power roles staying concealed would be better in some cases.

If you are going to massclaim you have to be honest, or else you are just going to get mislynched when the role you claim flips on someone else. Its a huge distraction that hurts the town when a town player lies about his role in an open setup, because the person who has that game is going to focus them.

I had a lot of fun and was happy with my scum game throughout, my first one in ages. I really liked the new players and hope to see them stick around. You were all very good sports.

This certainly was an interesting game to follow. I was fairly certain town was doomed when The Cog quit out and failed to report back despite Podima's assurances that he was still in the game. I even contemplated offering to sub in for The Cog, but didn't because I really don't actually enjoy playing Mafia. (Long story short: my first Mafia experience was a bad one for me and I've been soured on actually playing it ever since.)

That said, I was pretty sure Lumpen was scum around Day 2 and onward, mostly for two reasons:

1) The chart - it really wasn't all that helpful to town. It was just a list of "player X thinks players A, B and C are most scummy." It offers no actual help in determining why players A, B and C are scummy, and what's worse is that having all that information readily available like that means people are less likely to go back over the thread themselves and form their own opinions. Which leads into my second reason...

2) Lumpen put a lot of effort into taking charge of town and trying to drive the discussions and scumhunting during the day. He was really proactive, really aggressive, and in my general (admittedly limited) experience with the game, that's usually the sign of a scum player trying to appear townie. Which gets much worse when you have an apathetic town that just lets themselves get led around like that.

Didn't clear it off for a proper photo because it was Valentine's Day and I didn't want to have to explain 'Oh I'm just going to take a picture of your axe for some people online that I've been playing a mafia game with online because they didn't believe you have an axe'. Its currently got its lower edge planted in a chunk of wood, if that isn't clear.
(picture edited out because this was 4 months ago and doesn't need to be here anymore)
