    As in past Phallakinetics, actions happen instantaneously, with the exception of the Aid power which kicks in after everything else. So if a guard uses their ability on a player, that player will be guarded even if their guardian turns up dead. Likewise, dying doesn't prevent you from killing.

    I expect Murderbot to be getting a retaliatory strike from Rend tonight, anyway.
    Did we get the order clarified and I missed it?

    We learn many things tonight.

    If Rend ends up dead tonight via Murderbot, we know Munkus is not lying or, at the very least, knows who Murderbot is.

    If Rend ends up dead and is not the Renegade, then we know that not all, or even any, roles are inherited from past phallas.

    If Rend is the Renegade, I would expect him to put his power to bear on Munkus as a final "fuck you", who may or may not die.

    Curse you, drafts, for saving an irrelevant quote.

  • HeavyVillainHeavyVillain Registered User regular
    seems badly planned to me

    if continuity is back, rend and the murderbot will just total each other

    if it isnt, rend dies and we're left wondering what munkus really is

    because i dont believe he alone would be what he used to be

  • RetabaRetaba A Cultist Registered User regular
    I do that all the time too!

    Also, doesn't it seem like if everyone was reprising their roles it would of been mentioned officially? That is what happened when it occurred before.

    I thought this is what you wanted?

  • HeavyVillainHeavyVillain Registered User regular
    well the first time he brought back historical roles he did it secretly (?)

    the next time was the figurehead roles, were everyone knew who was who but they couldnt die until their followers were taken out, and yeah that was mentioned officialy

    i would ask but it'd just get CD'd :P

    There's a 1/50 chance that he is what he used to be if the roles were RNGed. Not great but not unheard of. Was there continuity among the first 4?

    Well, the 2nd game he had the Renegade as someone other than Rend (who was a vengeful murderbot?). I believe these roles are here just not the same players as they are normally linked to.

  • LucedesLucedes Registered User regular
    there was continuity in a few of them. it's not an unheard of. it is decidedly heard of, in fact.

    Clearly we should vote out HV for being Primaphorior.

    The non-mafia murder machine is still more likely to kill villagers at least early on, I think the worry is how quickly. More haphazard kills early on make it harder for people to network. Networking is good. Sticking with the plan of keeping him around for at least a day. Wiet is as good as any day 1 is going to be, but wouldn't jump all over someone for not thinking that the giant murder bot might not be the best thing to have around.

    There are too many nots in that last sentence.

    Quasi. If I recall correctly if you got rng'd into a group with a character that had a role similar to one you had in the past game, he would give you that one. But aside from that - I don't think so much?

  • PeccaviPeccavi oh... oh my!Registered User regular
    I dont think there's been continuity outside of the figureheads. In 1, Rend was the Renegade, in 2 it was Ebfan (who then died an early death).

    Based on the abilities stated in the OP, I am going to guess there are no busdrivers in this game.

    Which is a shame, because busdriving between Rend and Munkus tonight would be amazing.

    pretty much

    Like Winky was set to be a really powerful empath in one game apparently but when he got the role ed changed it t being a super-doctor.. same power, different flavor

    also, nope baidol thats not what I wanted, I have a long history of helping the rendegade

  • MrTLiciousMrTLicious Registered User regular
    So sounds like odds are better than 1/50 if there are roles similar to murderbot.

    That's a scary conditional.

    Those are just samples of abilities. It was almost the same list last time, and we still had a busdriver (well, we could force someone to obstruct for us. And Obstruct is on the list).

    MURDERBOT GUESSES THAT OBSTRUCT IS BACK AND RETALIATION IS TO COUNTER USING IT AS AN OMNISHIELD.

    SINCE IT HAPPENED LAST GAME AND WAS HILARIOUS.

    I don't even know what that is. I didn't play in any of the prior phallakinetics. Does that make you a sub-Phyphor or something? I'm so confused.

  • Dunadan019Dunadan019 Registered User regular
    It is always in the villages best interest to limit kills in the beginning of a game in order to maximize the time it takes the mafia to win. it also makes it less likely that a seer or other special will get friendly fired early on. a vig is great later in the game as the ratio of villagers to mafia decreases and information (posts) increase making it more likely that a mafia member is hit. flailing around at the start of the game is rarely to the villages benefit (though it is alot of fun).

    Having a public vig is sometimes useful but I don't think this is one of those times.

    all that aside, I always vote for Spoit.

  • MrTLiciousMrTLicious Registered User regular
    I think there's a general consensus that increasing the length of the game benefits the village. Is there anyone that doubts that having a murderbot in play makes the game end more quickly?

  • Munkus BeaverMunkus Beaver Registered User, ClubPA regular
    LET US PUT ON OUR MURDERHATS FOR A SECOND.

    SOME OF YOU ARE ATTEMPTEF MANSLAUGHTERBOTS AT BEST.

    A HIGH NUMBER OF NONMAFIA CONTROL SHOTS IS GOOD AT THE START BECAUSE MORE INFORMATION COMES TO LIGHT. HIGHER CHANCE OF HITTING MAFIA IN CROSSFIRE AND TARGETS THE MAFIA WANTS ALIVE ARE DEAD.

    the number of dead engineers from last time reminds me that firing wildly isnt always smart

    fortunately from the op it looks like the weakest players have a lot more health then last time

    Blind fire from an, at best, disinterested third party probably isn't going to help. Still, I think we may find more than a few mafia or other undesirables on the wiet-train

    Neither actually. High health unmasoned village specials. Mafia guard abilities can be coordinated

  • WietWiet Registered User regular
    And that reasoning implies you actually know what you're shooting at, which you presumably don't.
