Mafiaís been making me real mad lately but I want to find a way back to not being mad at it, and I like this player list a lot. So Iím gonna try again, and Iím gonna try really hard to play this game entirely differently and more relaxed than I usually do.

Letís do it, cause I also need to finish Westworld Season 1!

Ask him about the scum victory in LumpenList mafia, a game he created to prove that LumpenListing was the best form of mafia scum hunting.

merk posted:

How scum would use the list system to their advantage:
  • Lists force players to put forth information that they may not have a strong opinion about :

    The list system requires that players comment on every single player in the game, thus resulting in opinions made by players that are not solid in formation and could be skewed to push forth a scum agenda. For example, the fact that I gave no opinion on Crane has been cited against me in relation to where I placed Five on my list. Although I don't remember who did this nor am I say that person is scum, that is an example of a stretched argument by citing something that I believed and something that I just put out there because it was a requirement of the game.

    If you look at other player's lists, you can find additional examples.

  • Lists allow scum to bus without actually having to bus:

    This is probably my worst argument, but I find it to be a good scum hunting tool today in as far as drawing suspicion on WeLandedOnTheMoon!. Scum can put their scum buddies somewhere on the list so when a flip ends up happening the scum can cite their lists as a defense. That is, Five flipped scum; now WeLandedOnTheMoon! is able to say "hey look, I put Five as #2 on my list! I thought he was scum too guys!" Yet, Moon never really pushed a Five lynch nor did he actually vote Five. The only evidence in his favor is the list position.

  • Lists make it look like you're giving information when you're really not:

    I'm an advocate that scum have to hide in plain sight by putting forth opinions that are false and contrived. That is, scum must put forth opinions to look like they are pushing a town agenda. This system requires it... and when falsely formed scum opinions are mixed with town opinions that town actually don't believe (see point 1), then it's easier for scum to hide.
There are other ways to use this list system to scum's advantage, but I hope you see these three quick points and can think of a few more yourself.

Awesome, game is officially full!

Most of the roles will go out over the course of tonight/overnight and I anticipate the start of the game will begin late afternoon/early evening (east coast) Tomorrow (Friday). MMT is the only one who said she can't post on Friday, but she'll have a good 3-ish days after so it shouldn't be an issue.

Luckily for you I've planned for a 20-22 player set up so having you do that will leave the final player count at 21~

Until then, I'll leave you with a song from the WW soundtrack I was listening to while creating the game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4sgPJvgev8

Well we do have 21, and I did say I had a setup planned max for 22. Since I'm still working on flavor and role PMs I can easily tweak the setup to that if you want in, homie.

Yeah weekend starts are always lovely but thats how the cookie crumbles with signups sometimes. It's always a bit lighter on the weekends in general, all I ask is if/when you get the time on busier days just try to get some content in whenever you get the chance and everything should be A-okay, as long as you can contribute actively after. I'm only a stickler for lurking when it's constant throughout the entire game and is actively ruining poo poo and not pre-announced.

Lando131 posted:

You're in!

All right, expect PM's to be handed out throughout the night. If anybody doesn't have Plat and has not left me with an email to send them their role, do that now or forever hold your peace (and get replaced).
