    Pirates Mafia II - Night Time!

    Do you not sleep? I have duties during the day, so I need to rest at night in order to do my very best job defending our fort. And what are those noises? Has Kendall infected you with make-annoying-noises-itis?

    Thanks bob - and thanks for running a fun distraction from all the crazy in the world right now!

    Pirates Mafia II - Day Two

    Ok, I went back and it makes more sense. Just too many people to keep track of everyone's previously-stated opinions :) So then I assume you are calling Warren the person you trust the least and therefore Ethan the person you trust the most? Too many pronouns make it difficult to keep track...

    So everything you said sounds like you'd be completely against a Paul vote, and yet you did it. Why? Just to get a lynch? Is that enough reason to vote against the "person I trust the most" - seems odd to me that you didn't explain yourself more.

    Pirates Mafia II - Day Two

    Today, like day 1, feels bandwagony. There's lots of votes with little reason other than "to get a lynch" - and that's the key. When there's an investigation result shared, or some other actual reason to vote for someone, it's not a bandwagon, that's just obvious voting. It's when there's a rush of votes with little reason on them. On the right track? Based on what? There's very little reason to ACTUALLY think Paul is scum any more than there was ACTUAL reason to lynch Reggie yesterday. I highly suspect we'll have another town result, but then we can look through the voting. That's how this game works. Oh bob sir, that's 7 votes on Paul.

    Pirates Mafia II - Day Two

    Part of me wants to vote Paul to help ensure we get a lynch today. I still may. I also want to vote for Louis. Hasn't posted a single time today, and near the end of yesterday he was very suspicious to me. He put the hammer vote in, which normally scum don't like to do (since they know they're sealing the lynch of a townie and that'll show up the next day), but he made the point of calling it out. I do hate to vote for people who simply aren't around (especially since bob's said he's looking for a replacement, which I assume is either Louis or William, or both), so ... Vote: Paul Lapointe Yes, it's bandwagony and risks killing a townie. But it at minimum gives us more voting records to examine, and at worst we're lynching a vanilla townie as he claimed. And as Zach just pointed out, right now, a vanilla claim is suspicious. We don't know we're in a role madness situation, but based on the claims we're hearing, it sure looks that way. And ok, yes, I know I'm almost doing what I said I'm suspicious of Louis for. I'm almost hammering, and I'm calling it out. So sue me. I know I'm loyal; I don't know that he is.

    Catching up - yes, standard mafia rules are that all the scum know the whole scum team. That means they also know who is not scum. Technically, they wouldn't know who is town vs any 3rd party roles, but that's usually irrelevant to them. How would you know that? They "lock someone up" so that they protect AND block them for the night. So there should be no way for the person being targeted to know it was a jailkeeper, nor would any one who's action failed. Unless the scum tried to both block and kill the same person (dumb) and both failed.

    Pirates Mafia II - Day Two

    Ah, I see I'm being brought up again. Let me just say, well, due to the current, um, scurvy going around, my time for this pirate hunt is less than I'd like it to be. So yes, my discussion may not be voluminous. (in plain English - with the current news in the world, and statewide lockdowns, my employer is an "essential" business, so I'm not getting to sit at home or even work from home like many people are, instead, I'm basically working a manufacturing job all day to help increase our production instead of my usual office work, so I won't be able to monitor the game all day long like I usually would. And no, I'm not making face masks or sanitizer or obvious vital stuff. But we do manufacture products that are needed behind the scenes - don't wanna give more detail since it might violate the anonymous game) Sure, it can be, especially with a game this large. Keep in mind there are different roles that cause actions to fail - plain blockers, jailkeepers, doctors, etc. Two blockers for the town would be somewhat unusual, but not two different roles that can cause blocking. What? The scum know EXACTLY who is town and who is scum, except for the rare games where they have recruit abilities and that's not allowed in this one. So yes, the scum know who all the innocents are. They don't know if a person is vanilla town or "power role" town, but they know who are town.

    Agree. But also, I allow for things occurring that prevent a soldier from returning to his post for a time. Hence, I have not (yet) voted against our very quiet mates - William, Zachary, and Louis lead that pack, but Benjamin, Mitchell, Elijah, and Warren are not very active either.

    And if that is the reason to vote for someone (questionable absence and a questionable first post) then Zach oughta be hanged. His one and only post was to pop in and vote for me.

    Hey, I'm the one who brought up contagions, so your response certainly wasn't too dark IMHO. Why? Why vote Liam - if my counts are correct that was only #2 on him, while Reginald (your other suspect here) had 4 at this point. If you actually wanted to get a lynch today, why did you vote for Liam? And along those lines, I too believe a day 1 lynch is a good thing. I have suspicions on several (Liam's flag talk, some people who talk much and say little, some people who talk little and say little) but in the interest of getting a lynch, and because I believe his anti-lynch position to be anti-town, I will Vote: Reginald Aston

    When did I say other random votes were ok? The difference though (since yes, basically all day 1 votes are without merit) is that people give some sort of reason for their votes. That gives us something to consider in the future, once we know alignments for certain. Your vote was even more random than anyone else - which may not be *scummy* but it's certainly not trying to help out us loyalists.

    So take care of the flag. It's still an inanimate object - that means it can't talk. So the fact that you're "communicating with it" worries me - are you insane? Can we trust anything coming out of you? Or should we throw you overboard in case your insanity is contagious? Technically, what you quoted showed a gradual change from position A to position B, not any flip-flopping, which requires going A to B and back to A at least, if not more. Welcome back to fresh air. Any thoughts on the hundred-plus things people said while you were below decks?

    In other thoughts... 1. William, where art thou? 2. Liam, what is this obsession with the flag? Beautiful though it may be, it's enough to make me ponder if ye may have a 3rd party role of jester (or similar) where you are trying to get lynched. Or you have a role-modifier that forces you to mention the flag in every post. 'tis odd, to say the least.

    Pirates Mafia II - Day One

    My apologies all; lest my family face bouts of scurvy, we've had some issues to deal with. But now I am back for the traitor hunt. And unlike some (I recall a De Anna of Troi or something like that in a book I read, who liked to reply to people without being fully caught up) I found myself needing to read many pages before responding. No, I did not think it was a serious vote. However, in my experience, scummy traitors like to throw out names to see what sticks. Day 1 often has people lynched for little reason other than someone names them and a bandwagon forms. So the scum like to toss out possibilities trying to get it started. In that sense, it's serious enough. Unlike others, I found Ethan's explanation satisfactory. His rating on my scum-o-meter has been lowered, at least for now. You started off this nonsense of a talking flag with this. When does the flag say we should vote? You later push for not lynching - I can see the argument, but we have enough that we can afford to sacrifice a few in our quest to rid the land of traitorous scum. See above. Happy? I need no one to help me defend myself, nor do I have scum buddies to help. I may be a simple loyal soldier, but I can read and write just fine on my own. Ping! goes my scum radar. Ok, so it's just my ears, since radar won't be invented for centuries, but you get the point. Yes, day 1 voting is a crapshoot. But you're deliberately making it worse with blatantly random votes. 'twould be better to not vote at all, than this meddling with the records.
