Told you jerks I wasn't a witch.

the book The Crucible by Arthur Miller.
My favorite play. Did you read it in novel form?
OK, Witch Hunt Mafia. Where do I start? I hate losing. Have I been killed off of a game before? Well...Roman Mafia, but the game ended before learning my fate. I could still be innocent.
So, anyway, I was killed by Quarryman who I now hate for ruining my recent winning streak...of 1!
No, honestly, I don't hate Quarryman, as I clearly asked to be killed.
Though, out of all the great points I made in my last night, why he had to latch on to that one thing I said-I have no idea. I mean, really, clearly I was just trying to make a point, you didn't have to take it literally so quickly. Anyway, don't be surprised when you wake up banned one day... son of a megablocks.
And now for Tiny Pious!
I'll start out by saying something nice...er...he has a very creative username.
OK, I thought the game looked stunning. Great settings, great MOCs and excellent characters. Some of the best I've seen in the mafia games. That church is excellent and building the whole town was really impressive. I really like the way the game looked
Random thought: I really wish someone would've killed Norrington before the end...
Anyway, on to my grievances
with Tiny Pious. I suppose this first one is just sour grapes, but Quarryman tells me that he tried to kill Fernando on the fifth night and Tiny Pies wouldn't let him, so then gave him another chance to kill someone
. Quarryman then rudely chose me. I say No no no no no. If a person with the power to kill someone kills a character who isn't killable, that's it. They've used their action for the night, they don't get another chance.
I should've lived to annoy for at least one more day.
As for the premise of the game, it's all right. It's different and that's nice and all and it is called witch hunt
after all. And witch hunt means chasing nothing-at least here in the states. But, I thought the clues could've lead more to the possibility of deception or imagined witchcraft. I admit I found it very odd that there was no "witchcraft" taking place. Yes, it's an interesting sociological experiment to see how people turn on eachother, but it's a mafia game
. People expect there to be good and bad guys. So, it isn't like we were turning on eachother out of paranoia or some base human instinct, we were playing the game as the basic rules are usually set up.
I know this was based off a game Tiny Pies played on a gaming forum. In that game, the town won when they killed The Evangelist who had been railing against the witches throughout the game. That's an interesting way to win. There's still an enemy. I think killing Fernando in this game should've been the end. Why oh why
was Fernando allowed to escape? That still makes no sense to me, neither does Mustafa's stall. But if there was still an enemy that might have made it easier. If either Fernando or Alexander were part of it and tried to lead the town to kill everyone off and take advantage of the stall clues that would've been interesting. Tiny Pies told me the rules for winning were kind of vague and I thought they should be a little more solid from the get-go...but he did say whoever died or was investigated would be found to be a witch, so I really wanted to see Fernando killed and declared a witch-not sure why that didn't happen.
Now that I've typed it all out, I guess it is kind of cool the way it worked out with the townspeople deciding that the Witch Hunt wasn't real. Of course, that's no good for Isabella, now is it, Quarryman
? So, perhaps I'm just complaining because I was sure I was right and I wasn't. And then I died. Then Fernando got away.
All that being said, it was
a lot of fun. I got to be an annoying freak like I always am, except it got me killed this time. Everyone played a great game, except Norrington
and despite it being painfully slow, it ran smooth and it was certainly a mystery to solve. I look forward to a new game where there are
enemies. But, this was fun and different and I ... suppose I could ... applaud Tiny Pies for the effort and the excellent follow through.
Great game everybody!
