usually the "standard rules" are laid out in the OP but generally these are observed: players voted out during the day cycle the require a majority vote, after a player is voted out a :redhammer: is posted and in thread discussion stops (at least discussion about the game state, other general non game related chatting is usually permissible at this time), day cycles last about 48 irl hours, nights are 24. uuummmmm......... OH YEAH, it is highly recommended to have PM's turned on (discord is also a popular option as of late) so the mod of the game can communicate to you outside the thread, which reminds me, out of thread communication between players is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (unless otherwise stated in your role PM from the mod)

Mr. Steak posted:

in all seriousness though, let's think. in vanilla mafia, people with an incentive to turbo a random person on d1 are considered scummy because 1) scum knows whether or not the kill will advance their win condition, and 2) their wincon requires the majority of players to die.

in this game, i think we can rule out the first one, at least until n1 comes around, so i'm focused on point 2.

i think we can all agree that we understand how the faction wincons work. from my calculations, it's just about a 50/50 chance that lynching a random person will advance each individual wincon. however, if you are a member of 3 or more factions, suddenly it becomes expedient to just kill a random person, then align yourself with whichever factions are strongest after.

in other words, the ones most eager to vote early in day 1 are the ones who are the least trustworthy to remain loyal to a certain faction, and will certainly be liabilities further down the line

i want you to die but not if you're one of my genetic dopplegangers, but don't tell me if you are (right now wait till later) dummy

I think we should tread carefully.

You've already alluded to multiple wincons and overlap therein. Exposing your own role and providing information

How many different factions can you win with?

i bet it's two

SalTheBard posted:

I mean (and I'm just guessing) that there are 4 people who have solo wincons (Obama, Yoda, Thanos and Keanu). Everyone else would have multiple wincons based on where they fit in the ven diagram. I don't think that is something to be concerned about, what I don't like is the role fishing.

big agree/same :yeah:

poo poo i probably just made three enemies by accident... ok

just know; two of you... of the three hypothetical "enemies" are actually my frens

but you are eachother's enemies probably....

Mr. Steak posted:

to be clear, my first thought upon seeing that there wouldn't be a universal "enemy" group was to wonder... who in the world could thread unite behind hunting (or pretending to hunt if youre one of them). the conclusion i reached is... the 5 players in the center of the diagram. because they are the most traitorous out of everyone

so you're not one of those five... hmm... ok

and if my assumptions about how night will work are correct, then starting on day 2 they will also be the most well-informed out of everyone, of who is in which factions

you're assuming the players will be forthcoming with information honestly which i think is a slight stretch

importantly, after n1, the big man yobo will know *everybody's* role

on the topic of said big man... my first inclination was said player is probably 3P (alone)

Why? That's a weird association imo, not that I mind it.

You both immediately reacted to the mod "clarification" (or whatever) post and thus by logic you both have an element of your PM that was affected similarly. This is impossible to prove atm, so really I'm just connecting dots that might not actually exist..... heh

Some may see this as a win for me, others, a win for Yobomakeanoses everywhere. Personally, I consider this a win for team Yoda.

Shine on you crazy green dicked diamond.

Omfg this might be the best outcome that could've been possible imo

Congrats to all the Yobomakeanoses 😘
