I'll write up a thing in about a day but for maximum effectiveness of said thing let's not talk about the texans for now

I probably won't be commenting on the other thread.

This sounds like scum TMM trying to joke around with me in a way I find endearing, knowing that I'll think he's town if he buddies up to me

The Lord of Hats posted:

Hello, everyone! I'm Hats! You might remember me from previous Shine games, or from being filthy scum in the Qal thread of Conquest of Qal!

I know we've all got a lot of D1 shitposting to do, but there's just a couple of things I'd like to bring up early:

1. This is a *Soldiers* game! Battle results are important!

There was a bit of a tendency in the Qal thread to treat people focusing on battle results as being scummy for focusing on that instead of the social aspect of Mafia. There's a point there, but holy poo poo it is a treasure trove of mod-confirmed information to pick through and reach conclusions from!

2. The game is (probably) ultimately won or lost on the battlefield

Okay, so this is a bit vague, but the point is this isn't just us against scum, it's us against scum and the other thread. Being on point with scumhunting won't save us if we're getting massacred out there. Thankfully, we have our glorious leader to show us the way to victory, but we should help him out with it where possible. To that end, while it's ultimately up to King Burgundy, I would suggest that we all post where you're best used in battle. Just a simple front rank/back rank is a big help, but more than that could be useful! I wouldn't start sharing until KB gives the all clear, though.

3. Be chill! Take a siesta!

We're better than those gringoes. Let them do all the shouting at each other until they're blue in the face. I'll be honest, this is just an excuse to have a third item on the list, because I got this far. Oh, small point for KB though--be careful about swaying thread opinion too much, it can give scum a lot of cover if you give a lead to follow.

Alright, back to jokephase.

Hahaha fwiw I really hope you're town!

I agree with wanting to share information but feeling like we should get a prompt from KB as to how much / what to share (Bif has a nice template in their thread, should we just steal that one? )

It's not stealing. This is wartime, that's officially looting.

King Burgundy posted:

Why is that?

A bunch of the questions give too much info to the other side if collected and used for targeting purposes; indeed, I've got an excel sheet of all 10 of their current answers to help the good soldiers of the DdN figure out who to focus fire on. Answers past this post are much more suspect, but I suppose that helps us, too, since it screws with Bifauxnen, enough that I'd rather explain now than wait for more revelations.

It's also great for scum to learn who's worth an NK so I highly encourage any of our brave mexicans behind enemy lines to look at the incoming incomplete dataset for inspiration.

For instance: if Natural 20 isn't lying (strong/risky townplay or just being on our side), he's claimed (by saying "I really don't want to be on the battlefield right now, and want to in the future, because I have rare melee powers") that he gets stronger melee abilities in the late game. That's possibly useful info for us and our brave comrades in the heart of texas.

Yeah, I'm trying to hang back a bit at first so I don't overwhelm the thread with my usual posting.

But I'm down with theft. And I'm fine with some of the information being asked for as a starting point, with some editing. I'll need that at a minimum to make good choices.

1. Do you want to be in battle tonight?
A - YESSSSSSS
B - Yes
C - No
D - NO!!!

2. Okay, that's your N1 choice, but is that like, your overall position, or just a tactical choice for right now?
A - Please continue to keep me (on/off) the battlefield at all times if possible (unless I'm just about to die and need to heal up, obviously)
B - I'd really prefer to stay (on/off) the battlefield overall, yeah - but this might change if say, I'm out of Shine, or maybe I could still do something cool in the other position every once in a while.
C - That's my choice right now I may change my mind later.

3. Regardless of what you answered above, assuming you end up in battle eventually.... front row or back row?
A. Front
B. Back
