    Hay guys I just finished my work for the term.

    thats a late finish....

    Pretty much.

    Last exam was on the 19th, but I got the added pleasure of having a project to start and complete by the 28th.

    You know, cause I didn't have to do holidays and family shit. And work. And move. Thanks prof! :x

    Heheh... what a wonderful spreadsheeting exercise.

    Sample Spreadsheet

    Based on inputs in column 4 (Effective Color), 5 (Effective Ability), 17 (Elimination Vote History), and 19 (Target History), the spreadsheet should be able to spit out accurate results for the color votes in columns 21-26. There are a few quirks: Elimination bonus abilities should be entered in column 5 as "Eliminator P", "Eliminator G", and "Eliminator O". Other than that, I'm fairly sure it's comprehensive. Please test it out, let me know if there are any errors or bugs.

    EDIT: I guess I should also say that votes (in 17/19) need to be in the form "Player Name [Post Number]" to be counted. And spelling counts as well!

    EDIT 2: A few bugs and errors fixed; reuploaded.

    Does anyone else want to make a bet that Mr.Blarney will survive the entire game due to the fact that everyone will be confused (even the mafia) ?

    That would be absolutely lovely. Of course, I'm putting everything down now, before the game starts, just in case of an early exit. But certainly, I'd like to be around for the whole game...

    One vote, in the thread. But depending on what color you are, it will count for additional things rather than just the village vote.

    One vote and one target, both public. But the question was "how many votes?" Which is why he answered "one."

    One could, I believe, vote for !kime and target !lonelyahava with one's power. If one so desired. In those colors, like that, if I am not mistaken.

    Yes, there is one !vote and one !target per person each night. Those add to the different color vote counts depending upon what your current color and role is. The White vote count is the most basic one and is the same as a normal phalla game, it's the others where you have varying amounts added depending upon your color.

    Yep, everybody gets a !vote and a !target to post into the thread each day. These votes and targets go toward seven methods of elimination, each based on a different color.

    The White elimination is the standard one, everybody's !vote counts the same toward it and the person with the most !votes gets eliminated.

    The Red, Blue, and Yellow eliminations are mostly based on everyone's !votes. The weight of each person's !vote is based on their role color. There is also a minor impact of players who have a 'Protector' ability: their !target may remove votes from one or more of these primary-color eliminations.

    The Green, Orange, and Purple eliminations are based entirely on certain players' !target abilities, and are not affected by !votes. Players with the 'Eliminator' ability add votes to the secondary-color eliminations (with a bonus to one depending on type), while players with the 'Protector' ability may remove votes from one or more secondary-color elimination.

    There is also a Black elimination that is not affected by !votes nor !targets. Instead, it is a 'mafia kill' that is directed by the non-Joker Black-color players. Notably, while the group does get only one kill, it is a free target and it is unblockable.

    ON PREVIEW: Ah, beaten by the host. Whatever.

    I suspect a lot of people saying "Stupid Village". When in fact people are just voting to try and get rid of their opposing colors, so they just don't care that much about hitting mafia.

    Seems to always happen in faction/traditional hybrids.

    Another way to think about the secondary color votes is that there aren't any true vigs in this game. Instead, some roles get to add additional votes to who would get killed by each color's "vig". The votes for the primary and secondary color kills can all be manipulated in different ways by different roles, but the White and Black kills are both unalterable and unblockable.

    It depends on how well you can convince yourself that you "deserve the pain". I find it a lot less frustrating than games like Ninja Gaiden and such. The difficulties feel like something you can overcome if you have the right tools/tactics as opposed to l337 skills . Especially after you've conquered a few and see how the game generally works.

    Getting all the role PMs ready, and I wanted to ask your guys opinion on something. Do you want me to list in there how your !vote will add to the Blue, Red, and Yellow votes, or is the info in the OP enough for you?

    Either way is fine with me.

    I have placeholders for the win condition currently that I can do a find and replace all on, so I could sneak it in there without any trouble. I was going to post a sample role PM tomorrow to show that it really doesn't look all that scary for any potential people to join later on.
