  1. Great game everyone. Congratulations all round, especially: - the Town block for teaming together in what seemed like no time and making sure that the focus would be retained regardless of who dies during the night. Darth, Hinck and Tama did a great job, but I’m sure all of the rest of you guys who were ‘in’ must have been equally awesome in your work behind the scenes. I’m sorry for not really contributing effectively an awful lot and, generally, being pretty useless throughout the game. - the scum team for working extra hard given the circumstances. I sincerely hope there’s no grudges at the end of the day, I really didn’t mean to offend anyone and if I was pressing too much in the Day threads, it’s because it actually helped me be a bit more certain about my own course of action considering my general cluelessness. As to my pm quote. If the rules had been different, I probably should have been killed, and I accept that. But they weren’t. Then again, if the rules had been different, there would have been an awful lot less metagaming in this Mafia game and people would have been actively advised against it – which in turn would have made the whole alter-ego game mechanic much harder to utilize in Town’s favour as it was. But, once again, they weren’t. The pm quote itself took place at a time where I was actively trying to work with Hinckley, not convince him I’m Townie – it was a result of my attempt to focus on the way TK had communicated our alter-egos initially – i.e. without even mentioning the element of alter-egos and instead using the term “role”. That “role” word was the whole point of the pm quote and as far as I can tell, I was right in stating mid-game that this action, stupid as it was, would have no effect on the game whatsoever. I know that for a fact because I was (obviously) suspected by numerous Townies up until the very end. Which, on the other hand, once again goes to show how ineffective I’ve been. If I’d have one piece of recommendation to our wonderful host, that would be to make sure that all players are made fully aware of the game mechanics before the game actually commences, as well as not to rely on people having played or read specific previous mafia games. At no point in my “role pm” was I made aware of the existence of alter-egos, or of the fact that the monsters were, actually, town. And while TK realized the latter soon and publicly stated who’s who in the game, the initial confusion could have been avoided if a bit more precise info had been provided to begin with. In my instance, upon receiving my pm, I thought I was the Scum Ninja – as in, not-being-seen-targeting-anyone-during-the-night ninja, who supposedly needs to have a power role. Only thing is, I didn’t have an actual night action. Realizing I was actually town didn’t help much; it was only after people started discussing alter-egos that it actually dawned on me. I’m slow, I know. Either way, rant over. Once again, thanks for all the fish and everything :)
  2. But you haven't. SKs, neutrals, etc... interesting concoctions and attempts to pull at straws, but at the end of the day here's how I look at it: Your alter-ego is what it is. The only reason this whole alter-ego thing has worked for us so far is because scumsters have been caught lying about it and getting caught up in metagaming it. I see more of the same here. Precisely. You played around with the idea of being a miller, then allegedly dropped it, then considered it worthy enough to share it with the person who puts you on the line. Guilty conscience?
  3. Your brief and rather unconvincing response has actually made me feel more convinced about following our Monarch's lead / hunch. The main point of my observations was your focus not on Town prevailing, but on you being covered, just in case. Oops, wait, I meant to say - _you_. As in, considering your possible-but-rather-unfeasible role, needing to explain your alter-ego, etc. As to the second part of your response, it doesn't even make sense to me considering my initial comments. What it does though is prove that a guilty conscience needs no accuser.
  4. Dr. Jekyll (or is it Mr. Hide?) is here now so I hope we'll soong have the opportunity to hear what (s)he has to say on this. I must say though, from the onset something does not feel quite right about that PM exchange, and it's not even the "let's go lynch some other townie that's not me" part. What gets me really is why would a vanilla Townie need to start theorizing about millers and what not when at the end of the day the ultimate purpose of vanillas, same as all the other townies, is just to push hard and try to achieve victory for Town with minimal collateral Townie damage - at least that's the way I see things. If you want to help, well help, don't ry to cover your own megablocks. Once again, I was saying - victory for Town. Not just for one person. Trying to arrange things in a way that would leave you in the position of the last man standing, on the other hand, could probably qualify as a prerequisite for victorious scum. Just like trying to come up with a smart way of making sure you stay "vanilla" even if the cop has investigated you. I don't buy this and as of right now, I really don't have a very good feeling about your brushes, Pamela. I'll refrain from voting until I hear your response, but I'm pretty sure where my vote will be going tonight. Double post but: hmmm, well it seems as though Pamela has decided to grace us with her presence, stay a while and disappear. I'm starting to like this less and less so here goes: Vote: Pamela Fettucini (Peanuts).
  5. Well shit. Just as I thought this council deal was over. I'm definitely gonna miss Helen, but I hope we've still got more aces up our sleeve...
  6. Hipster Monster. Not being privvy to any of this behind-the-scenes info, I must say I'm once again resorting to following the lead. This time, though, it's already been proven as being pretty reliable and trustworthy, so here goes nothing... My prime suspect was actually someone else entirely, as I already stated earlier today. Regardless, a potentially (but not too likely) neutral player is as good an option to lynch as any. Vote: Jeffrey Norris (jamesn)
  7. Dear Mikatta, an honest and complete reply to your question would require the incorporation of elements and tales from beyond our world of monsters and councilors, which is why I believe it would be best if we left that discussion for the afterlife where we're all headed at one point or another. At this stage though, suffice it to say that yesterday's events were never a part of a stunt and had definitely not been planned as a "move" of sorts. What happened was instead a mere attempt to make the best and most useful thing for Town out of a stupid situation. As you've all undoubtedly noticed by now, it was admittedly neither too useful, nor did it change our situation substantially. Back to the current events though - it's nice to see that Pamela is once again able to use her words as well as her brush, I was looking forward to that and it would surely help having as many vocal participants around here as possible, especially considering how Helen will be trying to catch up on her sleeping throughout this day. But I'm still the go-to person around here when it comes to brushes.
  8. Yeah, I'm, er, gonna have to retract my comments about Helen's daffodilly, but none too suspicious (at this point) butt. It's obviously been doing a pretty good job, after all. It's really good to know that the right people's efforts and work behind the scenes are paying off. Having an actual pattern to follow is _tres_ nice. Let's see if it also coincides with the observations that we lay(wo)men have made so far. Speaking of which - I agree with Peter once again; Giovanni also tops my list as of right now, mostly due to the fact that he was all too willing to try and provide exculpation (albeit implausible) for the dead scumsters' claims. It'd be interesting to see / hear if he is in fact the last stripe in the pattern. Oh and - of course, you may feel free to start a lynchmob against me for sharing someone else's opinion - on more than one occasion.
  9. Carl, thank you so much for posting these online. As usual, I'm spending hours upon hours just inspecting your models and trying to 'decipher' your great brick solutions. This time though, I'm equally amazed by the fact that you've also managed to incorporate the full line-up of DCC functions. You've given me so much inspiration to try and potentially also look into fitting DCC into LEGO models!
  10. That's because you're a conformist.
  11. IRC Chat. For a pub of sorts. Greenies go there.
  12. Helen, your endless thrashing around is helping no one. And if you don't trust me now, you won't trust me - _ever_. The thing is though, I can't trust you either anymore. Apparently, in my case it's all the same anyway since I'm a useless vanilla townie, as Sally aptly put it (and yet, still voted against a townie). But the fact that after I've worked so hard to try and help Town, you are now comfortably laying the foundations for a vote against me tomorrow if I actually survive, speaks tons. By the way, you should be way more familiar with scum writeboards, metamaster, and following your logic, how can we be sure that this entire tennis match between yourself and Sally in terms of message and in-thread accusations is not just a cover? I'd vote against you right now if I wasn't pretty sure that no one would really consider following. The town has put all its faith in you right now, let's see where that leads first - and that's also what I'm choosing to do. Oh, and Mikatta - yes. Consider me tongueless, since I really can't be bothered with your drivel.
  13. Once again - what makes you and Sally think that I've quoted to Helen. Furthermore, the pm quote was in no way related to proving my role or allegiance, it was actually an attempt to analyse the wording used therein.
  14. Once again, great commenting, Townie. If I'm "cheating" and it's in favour of Town, why would you need to get so worked up over it? Furthermore, my "cheating" will have no further consequences on the general gameplay. The rules clearly define a penalty for what I've done, and I've accepted that as soon as I realized what I'd done. If God decides that the penalty is insufficient, I might just as well die tonight. But what's _your_ huge problem with all of that? The way I see things, you say you have a power role. So if you are Town - and that's a huge IF - you are responsible, and you alone, for the fact that Town now has no leads to work with it and has to resort to such stupid moves. And, sorry for having so many questions but... why the hell would a vanilla or a power-role townie have to die tonight? If you'd used your moves smartly, wouldn't we have been able to lynch a scumster tonight? But wait - we actually might just be doing that... which is the reason why you got so worked up in the first place.
