This is a real question and not me being cheeky... is there even a normal "scum" faction in this game?

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

Pushing an agenda so soon? Can't even sit comfortably in joke phase? :thunk:

anyway, jokephase always gets me lynched, so im playing for keeps cuz this game super interests me

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?

The same way I feel about big green ears or rugged, handsome beards or change filled smiles.

I think we can work through this together. I'm not sure about the lack of scum, but I imagine there probably isn't a normal factional scum unless one of the individual factions has lackeys of some sort.

I am suspicious of people who appear to be pro all factions

Hmm why. Surely the common individual in any of the respective universes is pro all factions until their is a clear winner or faction that they must align themselves with. I assume that there are probably pre-determined MAIN factions and these wild card townies, have nested conditionals for win cons.

If your PM contains the words "all of the other", it should instead say "other". This was not intentional mod-fuckery, it is an artifact of a deprecated iteration.

my point about the central 5 being thread's common enemy remains true though.

That seems to be a stretch theory. Do you have any mechanical evidence to support this or is this conjecture based on what you think is most likely?

it's just a fact. we can safely assume that factions positioned opposite on the diagram are rival factions. for 8 of us, we aren't aligned with both of a rivaled pair, meaning the 8 of us aren't traitors. it is in the majority's best interest to eliminate those traitors

See, right now, your still in the realm of speculative, but you're speaking like this is concrete.

actually, good point. every single faction wincon needs him dead, so he cant possibly have any of them as wincons...

This is untrue I think. You've got keen insight, but your centrite theory is probably wrong.

its obviously a good idea to keep our specific roles a secret, but ask yourself: why are you afraid of claiming which generation you are? me, i'm certainly not a centrite, but im uncomfortable claiming whether i'm a 1st or 2nd generation because in the former case i'd reveal i only have 1 faction that cares about my life, and in the 2nd case, im an obstacle to way more people.

in the case of centrites, the reason you dont want to say is because the majority would find it expedient to lynch you.

The way you've dissected this game is marvelous steak.
