I said don't post too much, not leave me a 200 post wall to read.

Anyways, this boss thing sounds like the mechanic from Lunchtime at the Office or whatever that game was called. A few bosses who could find other bosses using that exact ability. I wonder if this game also has a serial killer that the bosses have collective control over too.

Okay, here's the thing. While Infinitum is clearly a boss, there's nothing suggesting that he's the town boss aside from the fact that he was the first to claim.

I'm guessing there's a town, scum and self-aligned boss.

In that game, did the SK killing stop when the bosses died? or did that just mean the SK could choose his own targets?

If I recall correctly they just became an ordinary SK.

To be honest I'd rather not vote outa boss until we have three claimed. That way if we hang one and it turns out to be the town boss, we know the next targets. assuming there's only one of each alignment

I think that we should stop using Godfather/scum boss interchangeably. Godfather and boss are two different roles.

Seeing as bosses work exactly the same in every other way to the Lunchtime game, I'm going to assume for the time being that there's a town boss, a scum boss and a self aligned boss.

Correct me if I'm wrong but we've got three claims, right?

Adahn
Infinitum
dongsbutt

So if Infinitum is taking us for a ride and we lynch the town boss we know who the scum and 3p bosses are, even if we don't know which is which.

##unvote I thought that Adahn had actually claimed boss, not just theorised that there might be an assassin/strongman/juggernaut.

If he is a shine distributor we have at least 1 claimed backup who suggests there are others.

Adahn1986 posted:

It's fine anyways, Universal Shine Backups are probably the equivalent of vanilla town this game. I have a feeling there are a LOT of us.

That's my guess, which is why I didn't hesitate to claim.

In fact, if anyone here is vanilla town, can you say so? It'd be nice to know whether or not we're the vanilla equivalent.

Adahn is definitely town. Scum would withold the information about a night visit and just share it in the doc.

Do we know if New York Family is scum or 3p?

Murmur Twin posted:

I would assume scum (first Shine game had two scumteams, plus the role of "boss" + the team name "family" to me implies multiple people in that group).

SSV - How would knowing the answer to this affect your reads? It feels more like something scum would wonder than something town would wonder.

The reason I'm wondering this is as I mentioned before, I was in another game with the boss mechanic and in that setup the 3p boss becomes a second scumteam with the SK if he's the last one.

I'd say it's beneficial to town to know whether or not we have a second scumteam on the field.

I don't know why knowing the word "inherit" is a definite clear. I'm pretty sure that scum have a sample vanilla (or universal one shot backup) role PM for fakeclaim purposes.

If there's two scumteams, there might be four bosses. The theorisation of "one scum one 3p one town" kind of went with one scumteam.

Adahn1986 posted:

No, I took it during Day 2. I re-read my role PM and realized that was the only time someone could have confirmed me as town. Unless someone tried to take it after me, I'm impossible to confirm except by killing scum or dying.

and here I was excited about thinking I caught you in a lie

I tried to claim the role during night 2 and was told I couldn't because it had been two phases. The PM didn't mention anything about it already being taken, but I'm guessing being told I had waited too long took priority over that.

Since I still haven't received any shine I guess I'll just claim bc I'm basically vanilla. I am an honest visitor. Visited dongs on n1 bc in my eyes he was the closest to confirmed town. Huge waste.
