  3. The FABUrealms experienced 100 years of peace after the founding of the new world in the Western Realms. An alliance was forged with the dragons, opening the citizens of the FABUrealms and the Western Realms to new discoveries around their world. Now, a conflict has arisen with the Elfin Kingdom. A disturbingly increasing majority of citizens of the FABUrealms have been breeding baby dragons for labor and the Elves have declared war to set them free. A small band of Emancipators has stolen the naval ship, The Pluto, to return the baby dragons to their homes. Little do they know, they've been infiltrated by assassins from the Baby Dragon Haters, who wish to murder them all and return the baby dragons to their lives of forced labor...

    FABUpunk! Mafia II Sign-ups

    Wow! Look at the reunion here! This is excellent. If anybody who still wants to sign up, especially those I sent PMs to, please feel free to join us. I will add characters/roles. We have everybody! I particularly want to make sure @Dragonator doesn't want to play, so I'll give a bit more time and still plan to send out role PMs on Wednesday. The cups are ready, but haven't gone through the selection process yet. Hooray! I'm excited about this. I hope it goes well...

    FABUpunk! Mafia II Sign-ups

    Wait! Those are both me! Bulletproof Survivor is insane. No offense, Bob.
  9. Hey everyone! FABUpunk! was a quick game so I'd like to give it another go. I'm looking for 15 people this time, if possible. If that doesn't end up happening, I'll make adjustments. Please let me know if you're interested by answering these three completely unnecessary questions: What is your favorite FABULAND animal? Should LEGO bring FABULAND back? What is your least favorite Mafia role? (Can either be a generic role you don't like to see including in games or a specific experience in a game) Thank you!

  10. Interesting. I hadn't thought about it this way. My perspective was that if the Town is doing its job by removing the threat of the Trickster (who wanted you all dead in this version) then why punish them by leaving them without any tools to hunt Scum? Most of the setups the Trickster can choose from involve re-direction, land mines and false investigation results. The role is definitely there to make thing "tricky." So, punishing the Town for doing its job seems unfair.
  11. I know you knew, just wanted to re-iterate as I let the statement sit there and didn't clarify after he posted it. Thank you, honestly, for reminding me not to be a dick to my players when I'm hosting. Or to other players when I'm playing... I've demonstrated a lot of bad habits as a host over the years and I'm constantly working to correct them, so I appreciate the feedback a lot because it helps me improve.
  12. Not pleased like Michael Scott doing a confessional about Toby! That is the very definition of "not pleased." I did not intend to offend, however I'm very sorry I offended you. I did not find it insulting, but at the time I did find it a broad assumption. Here was the quote: Now, for argument's sake, I would not have left the Town without roles once the Trickster was gone. If I was confident the game was going to continue past Day Four, you would've seen what would've happened, but since I knew you guys had Trekkie and he was the last Scum I didn't bother doing it, because now I can save it as a surprise for my next attempt, which I hope you will play. We can all praise Fergus/Kristel for playing with balls of steel but the whole Town deserves credit for steamrolling this game and your analysis was a huge part of that. Especially with the back & forths between you, Fergus and Hayleigh. While that could've caused a lot of confusion, the conversation actually helped quell fears that Fergus was a diabolical Scum appearing to be the Towniest of Town and logically countered all potential wild counter-theories and ultimately helped everyone focus on the overall game and come to the conclusion that Lyev/Trekkie99 was trying to avoid scrutiny. I can delve into more game mechanics there and how Scum should play an open setup, but I won't. Back to how I hurt your feelings. If you look at the conversation on the dead board around that statement I made, I was frustrated—which I know is no excuse to be hurtful. My posts around that statement are "They've figured everything out? Is my game broken? Did I fuck it up? Can I start over?" I did not think what you said was insulting to me, but in my frustration looked more at the language about the Town being defenseless more than what you were saying about not knowing for sure. I should've kept it to myself, in retrospect. Being frustrated is no excuse to go negatively assess a player's one post that is contributing to figuring out the game. It's no excuse, but I didn't realize I was being insulting at the time. I got emotional and then stupid after that. I really am sorry I did that to you. It's an important question to ask in this game and you are the only player who brought it up.
  13. Thoughts on the game... Day One I was really excited about the concept of the Trickster, which was played with full vigor and dedication by Calissa Cat (Pandora). During Night Zero, we discussed how an unsuccessful result would be a dead giveaway that she was an Absorber, which I realized but thought that blocks would give her enough cover. Then I realized the setups I was offering didn't always give her the option of assigning a blocker. So, I gave the Scum a permanent blocker. I really liked how putting an open setup in front of everyone changed the dynamics of conversation in the day thread. There was enough trickery in the first setup that Calissa Cat (Pandora) chose that it needed to be discussed and a strategy had to develop. I think this is one of the things that Lyev Lion ( @Trekkie99 ) missed was that this was an opportunity to be part of the Town plan and discussion. Scum can't lay back in an open game. Everybody is going to be discussing the mechanics and who did what with what Action in the day threads, so not participating is a glaring sign that you're either Scum or lazy Town. And there were no lazy Town in this game. For certain setups, being open is crucial. If Town was just given three investigators and didn't know one was insane and there were two framers, they wouldn't know to look for any problems. This would greatly benefit the Scum if one of them was cleared but then the Town would never know to look that gift horse in the mouth. This would work as a closed setup if it was permanent. I'm still tossing it back and forth in my head if each day setup needs to be open for this overall setup to work, but in practice I loved it. It still has the capability to be open if the Town chooses to claim what Actions they're getting. Maybe that's what needs to happen and I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on this? How do you think it would work if Omrom didn't announce the setup the Trickster was using? I love all of you but I think Lyev Lion (Trekkie99), Priella Pig ( @Bob ) and Wyeth Walrus ( @Chromeknight ) somewhat fell all over themselves to reveal themselves on Day One. Lyev Lion (Trekkie99), was it a mistake when you revealed how you knew the compulsive Framer would work if you didn't submit a target? Priella Pig (Bob), I know you had some real life issues crop up that made it difficult to play 100%. As a host, I know you're Scum, but even to me the joke vote in the middle of a serious discussion seemed abrupt. Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) I think you did a great job shrugging off Hendrick Horse ( @Dannylonglegs )'s accusation, but it was spot on and she was on to you and wasn't going to let up. I'm sure you've learned the lesson of why it seemed Scummy, so I won't repeat it. Most players weren't suspecting you but unfortunately Fergus Fox ( @Kristel ) was suspicious enough to target you with her compulsive vig on Day Two. As for the rest of Day One, the lynch of Priella Pig (Bob) gave several Townies the chance to drop themselves into everyone's likely-Town column like Pembroke Panda ( @Darkdragon ) who provided a multi-point analysis of why Priella Pig (Bob) was the best lynch. The least active Townie, Evren Elephant ( @Umbra-Manis )—who was originally drawn as Scum, but was converted back to Town when he didn't confirm—was in the right voting position for nobody to ever suspect him, even though he returned a Town investigation result on Scum Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight). Shanley Sheepdog ( @Tariq j ) had a lower activity level, so made himself a safe target for the Scum kill on Night One. I could tell from the Scum writeboard that Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) and Lyev Lion (Trekkie99) were concerned about watchers and other common Town roles. They were being safe in case there were other permanent Town roles in the mix, which there weren't. I thought it was clear that the open setup was the only setup, but I wasn't going to step in to correct them or clarify. Also, I can tell now that it isn't completely clear and I think that worked against them. Perhaps I should've been clear that the open setup meant the entire setup was open so they could make some more bold choices on Night kills. I thought revealing their roles to the Town would clue them in that all roles were open, but it did not. One more constructive criticism I have for the Scum team would be that Lyev Lion (Trekkie99) and Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) didn't put a lot of discussion into Night Actions or how to manipulate the setup. They didn't ask if they could use the Framing Action to Tailor one of themselves and didn't work on any strategy for potential activity or a strategy going forward. In a unique setup with open mechanics, it may have benefited you to strategize. I think Hendrick Horse (Dannylonglegs) was a perfect target for a frame, and was shocked that none of the investigators targeted her. Maddock Monkey ( @jimmynick ) mentioned via PM that he decided to look for someone to trust as opposed to trying to find Scum since it was so early in the game, a move which surprised me considering it was a one-shot and not a permanent Action. But, I suppose if it's a one-shot you should use it the best way you think it's applicable at the time you have it to use it. Imagine if Lyev Lion (Trekkie99) would've used the Framing Action to Tailor Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) and Evren Elephant (Umbra–Manis) had returned a Scum result on him. Or imagine if someone had investigated a framed Hendrick Horse (Dannylonglegs) and returned a Scum result while Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) had a Town result. How would that have played out? The Town would've had a lot more trouble deciding how to read the results if that's what had happened. But, also imagine Lyev Lion (Trekkie99) had taken my advice (which he didn't have at the time, of course) to play the open setup as a Townie and claim Framer and agree to Frame Calissa Cat (Pandora). The game would've been over for her much more quickly if they both reported being unsuccessful at Framing her. I'll fix that in the next go-round. But, also Lyev Lion (Trekkie99) had the option of claiming to frame Calissa Cat (Pandora) and then framing whoever he wanted (although he didn't know there wasn't a Watcher). With Calissa Cat (Pandora) being the agreed-upon target, would Lyev Lion (Trekkie99) known to claim unsuccessful with his Night Action result? And if he had claimed he was successful and Fergus Fox (Kristel) came in later and claimed successful, would that have kept the suspicion off of Calissa Cat (Pandora) for being the Trickster? And one more thing, how the hell did Maddock Monkey (jimmynick) choose Calissa Cat (Pandora) as the Frame target? If there's one thing that blew my mind in this game it was all the statistics formulas going around. I was lost. I had no idea how Maddock Monkey (jimmynick) landed on Calissa Cat (Pandora) as the frame target and I wish I would've seen the potential trouble it would've caused her and adjusted. Hindsight, etc... Day Two Three Town results from the investigators, one of which everyone knew was insane. This didn't seem to perturb the Town too much. They were pretty set on lynching Hendrick Horse (Dannylonglegs) anyway. The potential of a Scum investigation (as I proposed above) on Hendrick Horse (Dannylonglegs) might have actually slowed this bandwagon down. It was Town's one mislynch. I've talked about this with Hendrick Horse (Dannylonglegs) on the dead writeboard and I think she played a great game. Coming out very aggressively on Day One may have gotten her lynched but it also helped the Town in their eventual victory. I think the only thing that caused the mistrust was formulating the plan to Frame the same target and then volunteer for being that target. Town was right to suspect she might be trying to avoid being investigated. It was hard to walk that back once it happened, unfortunately. I know Hendrick Horse (Dannylonglegs) hasn't played for a while and I love that she came in, ready to play an aggressive game and I can tell she was enjoying herself. I really respect that she was willing to be lynched to remove the confusion and suspicion and that really helped the Town focus later, I think. As for the roles Callisa Cat (Pandora) chose for Day Two, I think not alerting the Scum to 3 PGOs would be as detrimental to Scum as not revealing the framers and insane investigator to Town would be and leaving it closed has the potential to make the balance really swingy. The Scum and the compulsive vig, Fergus Fox (Kristel), had to be careful about their choices since there were PGOs out there and alerting everyone to the setup was fun, in my opinion. Everyone knew it had the potential for the wrong people to be killed, on both sides. I was hoping that Calissa Cat (Pandora) would choose to set it up to preserve my Scum team since they had such bad luck on Day One. But, that's not her job to re-balance things. It was her job to meet her win condition, which was to kill everyone. Calissa Cat (Pandora) is one of the people that posts their thoughts to me in PM, but on this Day it became clear she didn't realize Lyev Lion (Trekkie99) was Scum and was leaning towards Hayleigh Hippo (Shadows). So, it turned out to be a minefield for Scum, even though they were able to avoid any PGOs and went for the target of Keyarra Crocodile ( @Dragonator ). Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) thought he might be part of a Town block since he reported all the Night Action results, but that wasn't from behind-the-scenes chatter. Night Action results are given right before the Day starts, so he wasn't sharing knowledge from PMs, he was repeating the information that others had already posted. Side note here: I realized that a lot of players try to fire off PMs with their Night Action results in the few minutes between me sending out Night result PMs and the Day starting. So, I started sending Night Action results after the Day was posted. Once you get your Night Action results, the Night is over and you shouldn't be PMing any more. I thought that was obvious, but now that I know people are doing it anyway, I'll wait a good hour before posting Night Action results if I need to. Night Two also brings more trouble for the already beleaguered Scum team when Fergus Fox (Kristel) proves that she's playing one of the most aggressive games I've seen from her and barrels forward with killing Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) without thinking about PGOs, seemingly, at all. She actually decides this in real time in a PM where she's pondering over which target to hit —Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) or Hayleigh Hippo (Shadows)— then with a bold "Fuck it" she takes the advice she always gives to me in these games "stop second guessing yourself" and pulls the trigger (Goblin horde) on Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) and while I totally respect the strong game, the insight and the bold action, I'm also like "Fuuuuuuuck. Only one Scum left." This was an especially bold move on Fergus Fox (Kristel)'s part since Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) has a Town investigation result on him. Day Three Fergus Fox (Kristel) emerges as an undeniable Town leader having killed Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) and having been investigated as Town. Not only has she removed a Loyalist, she has proven that the investigation result on him was false. After a bit of suspicion from people that she might be Scum taking advantage of a Scum death to pretend to be the compulsive Vig but that suspicion doesn't last. I had some hope for the game to continue and the Town to question more thing because really, maybe Keyarra Crocodile (Dragonator) was the vig and targeted a PGO! But I confirmed to Maddock Monkey (jimmynick) that he would know if his PGO had been triggered. I obviously didn't think enough about this and inadvertently help the Town a ton since all the PGOs claim and say they didn't get notification they'd been triggered. Ooops. I need to sit on questions like this longer. Damn it. I'm trying not to interfere or meddle, but hastily answering questions gets me into trouble twice in this game. (I'll discuss Calissa Cat (Pandora) getting a one-shot PGO later. By the way, Lyev Lion (Trekkie99), this is how you get the one-shot PGO on Day Four. It was willed to you by Calissa Cat (Pandora).) Hayleigh Hippo ( @Shadows )—who was everybody's fourth choice for Scum, because he always plays himself in the middle—was absolutely correct that one incorrect investigation was the likely result from Night One's Action. But I had some hope that Evren Elephant (Umbra–Manis) might get some scrutiny for returning the wrong result. But, as I mentioned before, his voting position on Day One has cleared him in most people's eyes. Lyev Lion (Trekkie99) makes a valiant effort to suspect him and it's from the perspective of someone who voted for Scum Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) on Day One. Had Lyev Lion (Trekkie99) switched to Priella Pig (Bob) on Day One, this might have held more weight. Also, if Lyev Lion (Trekkie99) had gotten involved more instead of trying to lay low, he might've also stood a better chance. With the open setup, laying low was detrimental to his game, I think. Also, the vote for Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) is viewed as more of a nail in Lyev Lion (Trekkie99)'s coffin as people correctly account a bussing vote to it. Priella Pig (Bob) had a lasting effect on the game since his defense mentioned three people, only one of which was Scum. With Wyeth Walrus (Chromeknight) and Shanley Sheepdog (Tariq J) already dead, Fergus Fox (Kristel) surmises that Priella Pig (Bob) wouldn't have risked suspecting more than one Scum team member and this actually pulls her focus off of Hayleigh Hippo (Shadows). With the Town following her and she really wanting the cat dead, everyone is voting for Calissa Cat (Pandora) to get rid of the Trickster. I feel terrible that this one unsuccessful result gave her away and I know that's my fault but I didn't get it until I saw it in practice. Even with a Scum block, blocking that particular Frame made no sense. I think Calissa Cat (Pandora) had a solid defense that she was being fucked with and being framed as the Trickster, but I don't think anybody gave this Scum team that credit (Sorry ) and Fergus Fox (Kristel) is able to keep everybody on track for a Calissa Cat (Pandora) lynch. Hayleigh Hippo (Shadows) is still getting suspicion thrown at him, but after a 12 hour break, some sort of clarity sets in for everyone and in the last six hours of the Day, it becomes clear that everyone suspects Lyev Lion (Trekkie 99) and the game is pretty much over from there. I'll actually do Day Four and explain my little PGO fuck-up later. We're going to a socially responsible pool party now. Again, thanks to everyone for putting your time and energy into this game. Thank you for the feedback. I would love to hear more on how to improve the setup. I'd like to run this setup again and will probably start a sign-up thread next week and just jump right into it. I would like a few days to really think of how to tweak it so the Town doesn't steamroll the other factions again. I think that's only partly mechanics in this game, but I think they definitely need an update.
  14. Night Actions Night Zero Calissa Cat (Pandora), the Trickster is given these three options: Option 1 1 Redirector (swaps targets) 2 Investigators 1 Ghoul (If targeted for a kill, killer kills their target instead) 1 Bodyguard Option 2 1 Jailkeeper 1 Vigilante 1 Weak Hider (will die if they target a scum or the vig) 1 Investigator Option 3 2 Framers [Fergus Fox/Kristel & Lyev Lion(Trekkie99))] 2 Sane Investigators [Caylin Cow(KotZ) & Maddock Monkey(jimmynick)] 1 Insane Investigator [Evren Elephant (Umbra-Manis)] ALSO: During Night Zero, Evren Elephant (Umbra-Manis) is converted to Town and Lyev Lion (Trekkie99) is converted to Scum by random draw. Since Evren Elephant (Umbra-Manis) didn't show up and I was looking for a replacement, and Evren Elephant (Umbra-Manis) hadn't read his role PM, I was able to make the swap without the Scum team being revealed to Evren Elephant (Umbra-Manis).

I want to try it again and address some of the issues from this game.
