:h: With 15 players alive, it took 8 votes to be executed.

=========================================================

In a panic, the mobsters in the room grabbed the first person to do anything suspicious. Natasza, a well-known smuggler, was the first to go. The mobsters ran her through with their daggers, stabbing at her corpse until she had died. Checking her spacious room at the inn revealed no police paraphernalia, just a very large, human-sized crate, with scratch marks on the inside.

:s: GeneX, Natasza "Fatalny," Smuggler (mafia-aligned jailor), was killed by the mob day 1. :s:

It is now Night 1.

hello!

in the interests of time I gave most night actions the following flavor:

Success! (Result: !)
or
Failed! (with a flavor blurb why).


In the future I am going to insist actions arrive within 12 hours of thread closure, or else I will forfeit them.

=========================

On the second day of their captivity, the gamblers found two of their own had bitten the dust during the night. First was Anomalous Amalgam, also known as Sofia. She was an urchin waif with a keen set of eyes. She was found frozen in stasis, with a faint blue aura around her, just like Julia yesterday. Until her captors were all killed she would remain there indefinitely. Or until she could be brought to the constables and tried for abetting so many felonies.

:s: AnomalousAmalgam, Sofia, Informant (mafia-aligned weak watcher), was frozen night 1. :s:

The second was more mysterious, which was saying something, as someone being trapped in a magickal stasis field is already pretty spooky. This was IllegallySober, who just seemed to have disappeared entirely.

👻 Illegally Sober, ???, ??? (???-???), disappeared night 1. 👻


It is now Day 2.

:h: With 12 alive it takes 7 to execute.
:d: Day 2 deadline: Monday, July 16th, ~11PM EDT / 8PM PDT / (Tuesday) 1PM AEST.

AAís flavor seems more like the traditional scum night kill, but Iím surprised AA would have been targeted since a few people had voiced suspicion of AA. Or at least Anpu did.

That is indeed weird. And thank you for coming forward with that information, I think I would have suspected AA of being busdriven otherwise. Thanks to you we can see this situation more clearly.

Town bus drivers are put in to balance games to reduce towns effectiveness, in the same way there put on scum teams to moderate a too powerful town. Especially misguided town ones that think they're helping.I'll repeat, bus drivers are the worst.

Busdriver is a selfish role that can remove the agency of other town power roles.

Doc thinks player X is pretty towny and worthy of their protection?

Too bad!

Cop wants to scope out player Y because something's just not right?

Sucks 2 B U!

Basically the bus drivers opinions out weigh everyone else's and if they have different opinions on the game than the rest of town they're interfering with town.

Bus driver is literally my favorite role next to vanilla also, so really thereís no way Iím not using it. It interferes with some town actions but I find it more often makes scum paranoid about who they are targeting since the kill can come back on them.

Max
Nov 30, 2002



Besides, overriding the doc doesnít concern me since if scum targeted the same person, all Iím doing is shifting the target and they remain protected.

Depends. Is your role just as likely to gently caress things up (or more so) for town? Then using it is only for your own purposes (boredom), is selfish and therefore untowny.

Like it's good Max came clear, but now town are going to be second guessing and doubting their night actions whenever they submit them (just as much as scum are!) and have to wait every morning for Max's update. Oh and we have to trust Max's word too.

My hatred for busdrivers is years in the making. This is not a new thing.

See I disagree, I think the risk factors are no different to scum than them not knowing if there is a cop, doc, watcher, tracker, pgo and they're going to bounce off one of them.

Bus driver just adds a whole layer of complexity to town that they wouldn't have normally.

hambeet
Sep 13, 2002



Look at it from a risk management point of view, you dont introduce new risks to try mitigate others. That's like the worst.

Anyway I could max lyrical (see what I did there) on this all day but I don't think we're going to change each others opinions.

Max

Yes but unless there is a vig, town wonít have to worry about a kill going astray and at worst their target for info changes. Scum actually do. And this is speaking from experience of causing one scum team no end of frustration in a game from a long time ago.

Yeah vig too, I left that out.

All I'm saying is I don't think it's as cost neutral to town as you think it is.
