    Yeah, I was wary of Tmoiy too, but.. he's played two games. I didn't really understand at first why stever became the best candidate to be killed either, although people's explanations made me see why. You have to take into account that there's going to be some things that just don't go the way a normal Phalla would with experienced players. (If anyone plays/follows poker, there's an analogy to be made here but I'm lazy. :P)

    No, we're saying the same thing. Stever had to die last night, otherwise it could've been a mafia ploy.

    Tmoiy tried to get us to save Stever.

    Ok, you somehow turned my logic around. But Mr Mason has marked you so I will just leave my vote as it is.

    KingMole maybe Peccavi has a point here and Tmoiy is a better target. Then again, neither seems too suspicious.

    I would argue that Peccavi's entire strategy is to be 'too suspicious'. :P

    Very few hosts will actually require you to retract a vote before changing it. In most cases, you only need to vote for someone else.

    Retractions are mostly from an earlier time in the history of phalla, before advances in host spreadsheeting technology made them largely unnecessary. Hosts that want retractions should probably mention it in their OP.

    Just want to throw in my two cents about this, because I am notoriously guilty of doing exactly that:

    Placeholder votes can be a good place to hide as a mafia, but sometimes you just don't know if you'll be around by vote close or if other information will come out from a network head.

    It is kind of a personal thing; hell, Phalla is a personal game. Individuals have a distinct voice, even on a web forum.

    TLDR: Placeholder votes can be suspicious, but so can many things. Use them if you have to.

    Since I do not have a well developed line of reasoning on anyone right now, I'll go with the group hunch. Peccavi, hopefully we'll have more information tomorrow.

    However, don't rule out retracting a vote without making a new one as a possible action

    Personally, I like D&D because I find OCD much more interesting than ADD.

    We are missing one vote, from Turkson, unless I missed it.

    Peccavi is leading with 9, no one else is close (Taya with 3)

  • SLyMSLyM Registered User regular
    Okay, now I'm super suspicious that my hunch picked up this much momentum. At least it gives me something to poke around with and see if there is anything interesting going on.

    I'm always really surprised when things I do in phalla actually impact the game.

    I can only hope that I provide the village more info in my death than I did in my life.

    Day 2: Off the Rail(work)s!

    Peccavi begged and pleaded with the crowd. Surely, they were all steamworks games, right? Stever's death was necessary to keep the tubes safe from the dark ones. His arguments fell on deaf ears. Maybe it was the ridiculous russian accents, maybe it was the Wodka. Personally, I think there was some misunderstanding involved when he tried to bullets for his life.

    SeGaTai swore to himself that no matter what, he wouldn't let the same thing happen to him that had taken out the Pointman last night. Like a Ninja, he dodged between underneath the bullets, and around the rockets. When suddenly; Double Vision. He could deal with a single attack easily enough, but couldn't keep up under the bichromatic assault. Seeing a big cluster of blue blocks, he swooped in to try to eliminate them....Ka-Boooom!

    Baidol hung on the edge for dear life. These 2 psychos had already tried to cut down his grappling line once, and while basejumping from skyscrapers was all well and good, he didn't quite have that much of a reckless disregard for gravity. He just had one question: "Why?"

    "Just Cause." "Yeah, me Two"

    101 had a brilliant idea, if the threat was what he thought it was, he could easily blend in. Just toss in some quick time events, a handful of achievements, and he could easily blend in with the enemy. He even went so far as to stage a tightly scripted snowmobile sequence. Unfortunately, no plan survived contact with the enemy, and he went off the railworks. Lost, he tried to find his way back, but without a narrow corridor to lead him to the next firefight, he eventually succumbed to the Extreme Conditions of the Washington outback.

    Peccavi-Metro 2033- Feared the future
    SeGaTai- Audiosurf- Couldn't keep the beat
    Baidol- Just Cause 2
    And Yet, he fell

    Oh.

    Good.

    Network still intact, now they can pretty much kill anyone who isn't them and get a mafia.

    Hopefully.

    Yeah, no dead specials is good but it's a little worrisome that King is upset.

    Well, I wasn't able to be online for vote close, but at least nothing too terrible happened. But still no dead mafia. 4/13 now. :-/

    I wish we had more to talk about, but I guess it's up to the network now. Good luck guys.

    In the interest of information:


    Turkson
    Taya
    MrTlicious
    Langly
    Facetious
    Slym
    INANTP
    Captain Marcus
    38thdoe
    KingMole (Mason)
    Alkey42
    The Scruple
    Tmoiy

    All remain alive. Of these 12 people (KingMole not requiring inclusion in the math of who's who), 4 are mafia. Of the 8 that are not mafia one is a guard, one is a seer, and one is a vig. This leaves 5 villagers. In theory, the network can be up to 5 people strong - the three specials, KingMole, and two seer targets. It is likely less than that, depending on who the seer targeted, as well as whether or not specials claimed themselves to KingMole.

    At least three kills will go out each day (vote/vig/mafia). Likely 4, depending on where the guard is placed (vote/vig/mafia/mafia).

    Theoretically, the network could already be up to 7 people. There are the 3 specials and KM, potentially 2 seered targets and 1 guarded target. My guess is that KM is upset because at least one of the seered/guarded people died. Or, maybe, he was just mad because we didn't get a mafia.

    Does this not seem like the most trying-to-fit-in-as-a-vanillager statement ever? I'm starting to come around to a Tmoiy vote. Though, INANTP's mistake about the potential number in the network makes him a good target in my mind, because at least we know he's not a special villager.

    Sorry for making stupid posts, I am bad at this game. I will kindly shut up now. >.<

    No no see my point is that you're still playing so saying "I'll leave it up to the network good luck" is not a good idea.
