    The Important Looking Pirates:
    You are...

    Very_important_pirates.jpg

    An Important Looking Pirate! Specifically, the one who tests sword mastery.

    You are one of the three pirates who govern the three trials here on Melee Island. Your specialty is sword fighting.

    Powers: You need less clever insults and responses to win your sword fighting bouts. Basically, if I'm scoring everyone on a 1-10 scale in terms of cleverness, you get a 3 point edge.

    You are..

    An Important Looking Pirate! Specifically, the one who tests treasure hunting.

    You are one of the three pirates who govern the three trials here on Melee Island. Your speciality is treasure hunting.

    Powers: Treasure hunting is all about following clues. Once per night, PM me a target. You'll determine what they did last night (action seer).

    You are...

    Very_important_pirates.jpg

    An Important Looking Pirate! Specifically, the one who tests thievery.

    You are one of the three pirates who govern the three trials here on Melee Island. Your speciality is thievery.

    Powers: Thievery is all about stealth. Once per night, PM me a target, you'll follow them and determine who they targeted.

    Spiffy the Dog (Thanks @Typhus733, who made me laugh a ton; though I should have and almost just flat told him who LeChuck was for thematic reasons)
    You are...

    mi1spiffydog.jpg

    Spiffy the Dog!

    You are a dog who hangs out in the SCUMM Bar. You hate LeChuck for reasons of your own and enjoy bones.

    Powers: You have a post condition. Specifically, you can only use dog noises, the name "LeChuck" and player names. Have fun! Acceptable dog noises include: arf, woof, aruf, grrrr, etc. etc. etc. If you can sell it as a dog noise, go for it. So "Grrrrrrr Arf Lechuck Woof Woof Aruf enlightenedbum" is an acceptable post. You can also point at other players, bark in response to their posts (quote them), etc. No image macros though.

    The Voodoo Lady
    You are...

    200px-Voodoo_MI1.jpg

    The Voodoo Lady!

    You are a master of the mystical arts of voodoo. You can see the future, create voodoo dolls, and everything else you would expect from the comedic voodoo arts. You also take a liking to Guybrush for whatever reason.

    Powers: You are a seer. Each night PM me a target and you will learn their role name and alignment.

    Cobb, the LOOM (TM) Guy
    You are...

    Cobb.jpg

    Cobb, the promoter of LOOM (TM)!

    You spend your days hanging out in the SCUMM Bar promoting the earlier Lucasarts game, LOOM (TM).

    Powers: Each day, you must draw a connection to a past or concurrent Phalla and promote how awesome it was or is. If anyone quotes you or agrees with the nostaligic post, you'll gain two extra votes to be targeted however you like.

    The Troll
    You are...

    Troll.jpg

    The Troll!

    You hang out in a troll costume guarding the bridge to the south end of the island. You demand a toll from anyone who would like to pass. You have a particular weakness for herring.

    Powers: You're a guard. Each night PM me a target and you'll protect them from all attacks for that night. This does not include insult swordfights.

    Herman Toothrot
    You are...

    herman.gif

    Herman Toothrot!

    You're an old man who set out in search of the legendary Monkey Island a long time ago. You found it, too, but you're in an officious battle with the various inhabitants of the island now.

    Powers: Every day you can write a memo. Whoever you send it to will have to fulfill a post condition of your choice.

    The Cannibals (Probably should have been neutral masons, with maybe the Fettucini brothers as village masons)
    You are...

    758748-cannibals_large.jpg

    The Monkey Island Cannibals!

    You're a group of cannibals who live on Monkey Island, which is surprisingly close to Mêlée. You've been thinking of becoming vegetarians though, due to new research into red meat's affects on heart health. Also, you really want your banana picker back from Toothrot.

    Powers: You're a mason. Team cannibal is stever777, Spoit, and DumpShock.

    Special win condition: In addition to eliminating the threats to Mêlée, Herman Toothrot must also be dead for you to win.

    The Trainer
    You are...

    51687-the-secret-of-monkey-island-sega-cd-screenshot-swordmanship.gif

    The Trainer!

    You're the trainer of sword fighting here on Mêlée and inventor of the sword fighting machine. You're also a bit sarcastic.

    Powers: Each night you can PM me a target. The next day they will receive an extra insult to target however they choose. You cannot target yourself with this ability. Additionally, you'll have somewhat more leniency when it comes to the quality of your insults and responses.

    The Navigator
    You are...

    300px-Navigatorshead.jpg

    The Navigator!

    A disembodied head empowered with the ability to sense where ghost pirates are by cannibal voodoo magic, you're kind of surly about the... immobility of it all.

    Powers: Each night you can PM me a target. You'll learn if the target is a ghost pirate.

    LeChuck
    You are...

    lechuck.png

    LeChuck!

    The dreaded ghost pirate himself. You want Elaine Marley and you want her badly. You'd prefer her alive, but dead is fine too.

    Powers: As your alter ego, Fester Shinetop, sheriff of Mêlée, you can roleblock a player of your choice. Post it in an orders thread on your proboard.

    Mafia powers: 1 kill per night, once per game unblockable kill.

    Your crew is Kilnaga, SLyM, Langly, Phyphor, and SeGaTai.

    I will post potential cover roles on your proboard when you put it up.

    Win condition: Outnumber the living citizens of Mêlée.
    Bonus LeChuck only total victory win condition: Elaine survives.

    The ghost pirates
    You are...

    400px-Monkey_island_ghost_ship_deck.jpg

    Part of LeChuck's Ghost Pirate crew!

    You're a ghost pirate, working with LeChuck to win Elaine Marley.

    Mafia powers: 1 kill per night, once per game unblockable kill.

    LeChuck is kime. The ghost pirate crew is Kilnaga, SLyM, Langly, Phyphor, and SeGaTai.

    I will post potential cover roles on your proboard when you put it up.

    The cover rules were: The Cook, the Fetuccini Brothers, Murray, Wally, A Three Headed Monkey, and a normal monkey island monkey (who was the David Gregory Memorial role of nothing)

    Win condition: Outnumber the living citizens of Mêléep/s

    Insults!

    TRV -> Kilnaga
    "You're such a crummy pirate that when I told you to swab the poop deck, you ran to the bathroom with a q-tip"
    "How amusing. It's been said when you were so ordered all you brought was a hearty appetite."

    TRV won, largely because the wording was awkward in Kilnaga's response. We all agreed the idea was strong.

    Langly -> Typhus
    "People say your bark is worse than your bite, but it's clear that your breath is much worse than either of those."
    "Arr rarr grr-woof, bark woof bark arr-rooo rarr! *scratch scratch*" (My breath may be bad, but the fleas your mother gave me are the worst!)"

    Typhus would have won easily.

    Anialos -> Maximus
    "Your social behavior gives truth to the assertion that you are of questionable parentage."
    No response

    Spoit -> Alegis
    "You're as sober as a priest from Dover"
    "I bet you knew those priests well from bending over "

    Alegis won this, basically on CaptainPlanet82's say so. The rest of us were split and questioned the idea of rape humor. Though when I first read Alegis' PM I did laugh out loud. And then groaned.

    SeGaTai -> Citizen
    "You make Johnny Depp look like Captain Hook."

    SeGaTai died, so no response was necessary.

    TRV -> ObiFett
    "You're as coordinated as a peg-legged caterpillar!"
    Obi died though, so no response.

    The judging committee loved this insult when I posted it among the unresponded to/towards the dead group.

    Langly -> Mill (I made a mistake and misrecorded this as being against ObiFett and didn't send it out; Mill wouldn't have had to respond anyway)
    You fight like a one legged blind man

    Langly -> chamberlain
    "Your fencing style is abysmal, you might do better if you actually fought a wooden post."
    "Perhaps I will! Your face and demeanor are suitably tree like. And your bark is much worse than your beat parry. "

    I felt like the first part has a good idea for the response here. Worded awkwardly, but still the idea is good. The second sentence doesn't help. Langly won unanimously.

    Anialos -> The Anonymous
    "The reason thou hast a proclivity for keeping thy indentity secret is a result of your love of small boys and stuffed animals."
    "I stopped working at the orphanage after I caught you red-handed."

    Insult won, but we didn't particularly like either of these.

    Langly -> Megafrost
    "You fight like a grandmother darning a sock."
    "You'll need the stitches when I'm through with you."

    My favorite pair. Mega would have won, but died that night.

    Langly -> Retaba
    "Your swordplay reminds me of a blindfolded child whiffing at a pinata"
    "You only insult yourself when you use your childhood as a basis for your insults."

    Langly won here.

    Anialos -> The Anonymous
    "Thou art a braggard and a fool whose only purpose upon this spinning hunk of metal is to provide the horribly deformed and retarded an example of how much worse their life could be."
    "That's funny, because I was looking for a volunteer, and you'd make the perfect example!"

    I judged that for Anialos, though I didn't like either one. T_A didn't respond in time for the judging committee to judge.

    Langly -> The Anonymous
    "Your fencing skills resemble those of a palsied grandfather."
    "As do yours, except the grandfather isn't alive."

    Langly wins that.

    Anialos -> Mill
    "You sir are the very epitome of the dull and boring tactic of the uninspired and lonely."
    Mill wins by default.

    I want to be mad at Anialos for getting me killed for no apparent reason, but I think the grudge might go to DumpShock for not giving me any info after I gave DS three mafia. (I seered kime on day 2, but I guess the network didn't get around to killing him until later?)

    Also, I am the worst at insults. :(

    I was going into the last few days blind. Dumpshock shared 0 information with me. The decision to kill Kime and SLyM with my vote manip were gut reactions.

    Apparently I was seered. And the seer had some contact with Dumpshock via soft network I take it.

    yet Dumpshock feeds me to the vote because I wasn't online for a day; as he wondered if I could really hand out post restrictions.

    INANTP posts that he received a post restriction (one where he had to post TASTY BEER) from someone. Who could it possible be?

    Alegis is voted out.


    My fault of course for being unable to drop in. But still, I'm completely flabbergasted.

    We only had one kill, duels were public so we couldn't group up on people, there were at least three seers in a thirty person game, and even though our group kill was not a personal action it was randomly assigned to one of us without our knowledge. We also had no powers.

    So we pretty much had our backs against the wall.

    I deserve any grudge votes I get. The kime thing is pretty obvious in hindsight but he was ONLY action seered using roleblock on a night when everyone was using there powers randomly, so meh. I was 99% on phyphor that night because of T_A's target seer. Void was asked to seer kime but didn't PM the result to me, instead you lamented about not having a 5 person network around you. I played it wrong, I admit, but that made me seriously wonder if you were mafia and just trying to fake being a faction seer with results of dead players.

    @Alegis Sorry I killed you. It really was the best I had that night and it was waaaaaaay wrong. Then when VS revealed the next morning with his previous seer results........


    All and all I had fun. Don't want to be a network head again. I don't think I have the skills yet.

    Getting paranoid because I don't PM back (even though my 'last online' probably showed up as last online before I even got your PM ...) I can understand as new network head

    But INANTP's post that he received a post restriction I'd have expected to set off a few bells; warranting investigation (if the cause for alarm was indeed 'Alegis claims to be a post restrictor which he may not be'). It's too bad I didnt get online sooner as I would have probably tried to get INANTP voted out; he knew the conditions of his restriction (post about beer), knew that I claimed post restrictor (you posted it), knows I tend to enjoy the beverage quite a bit, yet went along with the thread, not really trying to divert the wagon.

    I tried to make the restrictions as obvious as possible to refer to me to avoid this kind of situation; in retrospect that didn't work out well it seems. Plus it's a bad villager move; if mafia knows I'm not a vig/seer they can hit elsewhere with more accuracy. So that backfired quite a bit.

    We live and learn!
    Unfortunately sometimes you don't get to choose to become network head; it just falls on you ;)
    I've had my share of Network head troubles and bad calls

    I.. do not approve of a post restriction like that. It was funny, sure, but kind of debilitating from a gameplay perspective.
