From the DBZ game that was run by N20, the heroic characters (Goku, Piccolo, etc) were scum, and the the villain characters (Freeza, The Ginyu force, etc) were Town. I wouldn't put too much on knowing the source material because frequently that can be a determent (i.e. early in the DBZ game there was confusion when the roles were swapped with how they should've been). I also think we are still in jokephase for a little while longer so I wouldn't take anything too seriously here.

Thanks, this helped!

Now I know I don't have to binge-watch something just to spot my character or to know who's acting like a specific character, or whatever.

Did scum Goku wind up winning DBZ mafia?

I voted for Juchero because they said they were in haiku debt to the thread and yet they still hadn't offered us one.

When they made two haikus and shared them with us, I rescinded my vote. It was a joke-phase vote anyway, much like the vote I put out on you, GulagDolls, for your terrible "kill Quid" haiku.

I didn't realize "joke phase" was over. My apologies! This is my second Mafia game after all, and I was under the impression that joke phase never actually ends.

All you've been doing since the game started has been trying to disengage from it. Lurking should be discouraged and scrutinized, regardless of alignment.

So are you suggesting that it's the NORM for Servant/Master pairs to be in a masonry this game? This is very troubling... such Role Madness indeed!

Not to try and rolefish here, but didn't Tired Moritz early on say that he was "best girl?" Does that mean Tired Moritz and 50 pounds of bread might be in a mason-buddy-alliance?

Like Bif said though - who do you got thinking as suspect? We weren't on the same side in Shine but I was pretty impressed with your posting there, gimme something.

Prince of Space's Day 1 reaction summaries
  • 50 pounds of bread - RPing a Berserker. Might try and kill some scum later, might miss and hurt somebody. Wildcard.
  • b-minus1 - lowest postcount for Day1, but seems willing to engage if called out. Will watch for contributions later.
  • Bifauxnen - highest postcount for Day1, seems to be pointing a lot of fingers but showing good scum-hunting efforts. Knows the lore/flavor. Leaning town.
  • Chic Trombone - reacted poorly/aggressively to being called a lurker, tried to disengage from joke phase. Leaning null-to-scummy right now.
  • GulagDolls - bloodlust early on for Quidthulhu made me skeptical, but bloodlust in general shows a willingness to hunt down scum. Leaning town.
  • Juchero - Voted for Quidthulhu early on with nothing but a bad GulagDoll haiku as reasoning. Suspicious - was he trying to start an early bandwagon? Leaning scummy currently.
  • KhediveRex - talks of loneliness and chess in a disconcerting way - at first mistaken to be flavor. Sudden avatar change (anti-Bifauxnen) and general demeanor (voting self) raises flags.
  • Monathin - seems hesitant to share and commit to decisions overmuch. Caused an interruption in the "potential turbo" of Quidthulhu early on Day 1. Null read/watching for contributions.
  • Murmur Twin - seems willing to share thoughts and throw out accusations on gut reads. Pot-stirrer, but maybe also throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what will stick. I want to lean town but it's too early on.
  • Prince of Space - Null, selfread, new to non-Soldiers mafia.
  • Quidthulhu - Seems like a popular guy that people want out of the game for meta reasons. Argumentative in sometimes roundabout or unhelpful ways. Willing to give him a pass for Day 1 because they were lynched early on as scum in their last mafia game, Shine V.
  • SalTheBard - Came out of the woodwork to talk to me about DBZ Mafia and how the roles in that game didn't indicate alignment. Nice guy, from what I gathered from Shine V. Would still vote for the lack of content in his posts.
  • Tired Moritz - Our "Best Girl" needs to step up her game.
  • Tobbs Gnawed - Threw out a lot of vote pressure Day 1 and started out with a Miller claim. Seems like trouble and a rabble-rouser, but in Mafia that can be a useful tool for finding scum. Null/paying attention.

What, specifically, would you say are bif's "Good scum-hunting efforts?" Please explain why you have a town read on her, in detail, and in regards to her scumhunting.

I don't have a 100% town read on her - I can't. I'm leaning town on Bifauxnen because I read her accusatory tone and I see what she's doing - poking at people for their weirder decisions and trying to catch them in a slipup.

The fact that she's poking at you doesn't necessarily mean you're the bad guy, it just means you did something that didn't jive well with her logical setup.

Bifauxnen feels your behavior surrounding Juchero is suspicious, and I would agree.

What do you think of it?

I think that the four most "serious" posters in this game (Quidthulhu, Tobbs Gnawed, Murmur Twin, Bifauxnen) should be left alone for today. They've been posting enough semi-productive stuff that they can be caught by it later.

Personally I think scum is sitting back day 1, lurking and waiting to see where the town's pendulum is swinging before deadline hits.
