    Thanks for running Warban. It was a mess, but I had fun and that's all that counts right?

    And hey, my team won without losing a single member. Yay!

    One thing that might have helped the game even in the state that is played as: Holding a Seal actually gives you a new win condition. Also, don't tell my whole proboard that I've been given a seal :P But I guess that worked out for me, as I was all ready to fall on my sword and Void Slayer was pretty adamant about not saying anything.

    t Infidel, The fact that you were coasting through the game made me extremely paranoid for a couple days that there was some gigantic doublecross headed my way.

    Oh, Corporation Zero proboards are here: http://typethree.proboards.com/index.cgi but only Void Slayer or Warban can unlock them

    And Arcadia/Empire boards are here http://arcadia-empire.proboards.com/index.cgi but only Infidel or Maxfrost can unlock them

    I would definitely make the win conditions more bloody clear next time around. If something is gonna result in a minor victory you really should say so in the original Role Pm instead of having to have someone clarify it through orange . It may seem like common sense, but when you have a faction game where you have tons of mason groups and seers and a mafia at seemingly great disadvantage. It really doesn't seem like common sense that it would be , necessarily.

    It's always best to make win conditions clear as possible and not require clarifications....just for future reference.

    edit:

    A side note. You generally want to avoid

    yeah given that it was a 'the entire village faction' vs the mafia, with the village faction sub-networked under a common minor victory and having 3 times the amount or strength of the mafia 'super tools' it was rather a ticking time bomb game to try to get all the seals on all the summoners.


    minor victory conditions are usually complete bs

    Easily my least favorite phalla I've ever played in.

    Sorry, but between the incredibly complex mechanics along with the in depth public explanations that neutered any chance of actually using those mechanics in my favor made it painful. I was revealed post narration via an explanation of an ability that did not directly target me. Poor. Form.

    Being a summoner was supposed to be a bonus, but it was actually a liability. I had twice the people wanting me dead and couldn't actually do anything to anybody. My special power was incredibly stupid, as it offered no real protection against anything.

    I wish Summoners could have been more offensive, actually. If you didn't get village votes, you could only attack by literally hurting yourself, and that's not motivation... And when unsealed summoners are publicly revealed, then the votes don't go anywhere else :(.

    Aint nothing wrong with a survival neutral role that punishes those who kill him, since he can tell people who might kill him not to. Which it seems like he did.

    See ahava's (cain?) role in scriptures phalla.

    Though making it apparently unblockable might have been a bit much.
    I never touched him and he killed me.

    Isn't anything wrong with being a neutral vig either, as they can use their power to help the side who's winning and end the game faster. Though I'll refrain from commenting on the actual role as I didn't follow the game. From the comments it seems this role wasn't quite neutral either, and a bit overpowered with being unblockable.

    Essentially just explaining there's a perfectly viable reason for a survival neutral to have a power activated on death. There's also the danger of it being viewed as a bluff, but you shouldn't complain just because the bluff happened to be true :P

    I had no control over the other faction kills and didn't give your name to anyone. The fact that everyone just went around murdering people for the hell of it was a source of great consternation to me.

    Though I do apologize to Lemminghead. Savant asked me to check with you guys whether Lemming was a viable target, but I was suspicious that there was an info leak on your end, so I had Lemming killed without checking.

    Hmm, weird. I was just suspicious because as soon as I show up in the alliance I got killed by two factions. Convenient because I was a seer and had a guard ability. I didn't think anyone knew I was either except you guys.

    Did they post the Awesome Council or Odd Job boards yet?

    Not today.

    Yeah the Council didn't have a board. My message box consisted of a bunch of random chatter with Jay, Egos and Baidol.

    I was hoping something cool would happen with our "secondary objective" of wiping out the Arcadians, so we kinda went for that while the factions with a hope of the major victory went and did their thing.

    Corporation Zero proboards are open, http://typethree.proboards.com/index.cgi.

    I expected my absurd survivability to be the key to winning so the key to victory as a summoner was doing NOTHING for me...

    Corporation Zero was basically invulnerable.

    Spoiler for wall of text.
    Spoiler:

    For murder bot's convenience, we basically guarded each other perfectly so none of us could die from a direct vig, and ringo had to be voted out twice. 38th doe had a 3 use limited use self guard and guard others that drew from the same limited pool of three super guards. So basically two (Tiphareth, 38th doe) of us had limited use self guards, there was the elemental summoner self guard and ringo's self guard.

    The anti bus driving power from the evil genious was actually the stronger power, it totally messed up a strong defense of the mafia and allowed us to take down balefuego.

    The moral of the game, as I put earlier in the proboard, is do not make ringo vote and vig immune. ;-)

    Anyway good game and thanks for running it warban, there were many new ideas that did not work out but I can see them being altered for a more balanced game.

    To be fair, Egos never once mentioned Lemminghead when I asked him for help with the Elites, just that he was in a 'Rend deal' with one of them and couldn't give them up. He was pretty surprised when Lemming died actually, especially since I didn't have anything to do with it :P

    What the heck is a 'Rend deal' anyway? I don't think I even asked him when we were discussing things.

    Uhhh...

    I never told ringo anything other than "Nyria, Moleface, and Spoit are guys who oppose your secondary win condition, and they are nigh impossible to vig.

    Then the next day I got home from work wiped out, took care of about half the things I wanted to, was very cautious of ringo, tried to move a possible kill coming my way onto a random mook, and that random mook got me killed.

    (Sorry SirFab, you were a random mook to me.)
    I honestly have no idea what you're talking about.

    But the other thing is,

    WHO THE HELL ATTACKED SIRFAB NIGHT 2?

    TWICE?

    Godamn that pissed me off.

    E: Also I am sad that ringo and crew spent pretty much all of day 2 planning on killing me off so they looked like the good guys even tough they knew I was on their side.

    To be fair we didn't ask on our probards. Though we had some trouble getting through to warban...

    Apparently the whole thing was just a pre-game side objective to get another kill...or so I'm now being told..which just makes things worse for the mafia and this whole thing even sillier.

    edit: During the game, I asked what would happen if a faction didn't kill their rival but the threat was still eliminated. Was told they would get a minor victory...huh guess that is still true (since it holds true even if they got rid of their rival)

    The mysterious being thing was pretty messed up at the start. It sounded like we were a mason group that had to kill each other as secondary objectives and then after someone clarified, we found out that wasn't the case. Had we have known that we could have tried to do something to move the vote off Nirya rather than just right on that bandwagon (sorry Nirya!)

    A mafia game is about information control, a minority knows the rules and the game and the pieces. The majority knows less and must overcome.

    A mafia like game has a minority that is simply more powerful in some aspects than the majority.

    This game had neither.

    It was just a clusterfuck of win conditions and bad mechanics.
