  1.

  2. We all have to play anonymously as Hinckley?
  3. Why would the neutral have to declare it? A win condition should just happen. Neutral survivor should win with either team when they meet their win condition, and those team's win condition should be independent of the survivor. Otherwise, the survivor is not really neutral because he impacts another team's win condition. The fact that Hinck worked hard to side with town should not matter. I can see it being unfair to town, but Hinck wins either way, so I hardly see why it's unfair to him. Very much this. The fact that Hinck was making no effort to help the scum seemed like reason to not trust him. Never trust a neutralâ„¢.
  4. Town targeted 3 scum on night 1. Wow! I really didn't have the time I needed to commit to this game. Things just got busy pretty fast and then I was only able to post a few times a game day. My scum team even thought I was going to be AWOL at first, so apologies all around for that. Looking at the town roles... wow, I feel like that's a hugely stacked town and we still managed to get to Day 9. I give most of the credit for that to Andrew/Mostlytechnic. I thought he was super scummy and had heat on him so early that it was astounding how he managed to turn that all around. My reaction to his Vanillaijzer claim was genuine... I was like, seriously? But it worked. I have to disagree with some of Bob's suggestions about our kills near the end of the game. Killing Aiden over Emmett was important because Aiden had outed Trenton and we needed a town lynch. There was no way that Aiden was going to get votes or go against Vincent, who was clearly hunting scum. If I had killed Emmett instead of Fred, there's no was no chance that Vincent could be convinced Fred was scum. So my only play would have been to admit being scum... that seemed less interesting. Leaving everyone alive would've also just gotten me lynched FWIW, I didn't know I would be able to block and kill until after Day 8 ended. I think if we had killed Robin on Night 5 instead of trying for Emmett, we'd have been in better shape. That was the night that things really started to turn to the town's favor. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate living past Day 3/4? I will say that I was expecting that we would not have to eliminate a neutral to win. Since 3:3:1 wasn't parity, I did also wonder if 1:1:1 would be considered parity. It seems counter intuitive to the concept of the neutral. Why would we have to eliminate the neutral to win, but the town wouldn't?

  8. I don't think I mentioned one way or another about Pirates III. I'm in.
  9. This was actually one of the giveaways... I realized as soon as I had done something to that effect that only you would try to pull that in PM's. Everything else you said after that just confirmed my suspicion. His target was commuted out... so no other night actions can get to him, no? I really thought that the night 1 results for players who targeted Ansel should have gone to Ethan instead... or was I only to drive the first night action away? Ethan should have investigated himself as town, and Elijah should have given him the vest.
  10. I was "Mitchell LaHore - Seaman"! Also your friendly town bus driver. You're welcome for saving your megablocks night 1, Hinck. Looking forward to that pint of grog. I debated about using the action night 1 and messing up town PR's, but ultimately decided I'd have more fun using it, town be damned! I guess it worked out ok. Sorry to whoever Ansel was. I normally can't guess who's who, or even bother trying really, but I did recognize Hinck!

    Classic-Castle.com

    I've been a longtime lurker there. Obersvationally, the activity was much greater when Lego was still producing actual castle sets. Nexo Knights kind of made things slow down, but I also think that Guilds of Historica has shifted some of that content here. The Colossal Castle Contest (or CCC) is still run annually, and IMO, one of the best Lego contests around. The MOC's that get submitted for that are truly wonderful. It runs in the fall and you've seen some of those MOC's get cross posted here.
  15. This isn't new. Vanilla's have always been a mixed group with some having this aspect of passivity. I think some of the recent games have actually been more reliant on strong vanilla play than older games. Many of the larger games from the past had a lot of PR's, and the game would basically progress as the PR's revealed information. The difference was that with larger games and more interaction between night actions, PR information became public faster and everyone could talk about it. We typically have smaller games now. It's rare to get more than 16 players whereas that used to be on the small end. Smaller games lend to the townie fear that a mislynch will doom the town before the PR's have a chance to do anything. I'm with Pandora in that I think lynching is the way to learn about others. The question of PMing or not is interesting. Obviously becomes a different experience when you can't PM, and really makes the PR's have to think about how to communicate what they know. I did enjoy the recent no-PM game.
