    Knuckles point about mafia potentially being early voters is actually a decent one. With the pressure to bandwagon for scares, mafia have incentive to try and control the conversation early.

    Sorry if that was obvious to everyone, it just clicked for me on a re-read.

    which is ironic, because Knuckles was the first to vote today.

    Actually, you are. Knuckles pointed to two possible targets, but has yet to vote for anybody

    I'm not convinced that I need to switch off of H3 just yet. His post was the first after results, which means he was watching intently and ready to pounce with an analysis, which is something I've done when I've been mafia.

    I missed the vote close by about half an hour, stuck around to update my spreadsheet when the results were posted, then posted my speculation. As mrpaku correctly noted, I have not yet voted today. If what I've done seems to you like mafia behavior, I'll let you in on a little secret about how I play phalla:

    I'm happy leaning with both RU and knuckles likely being village.

    I will say that I'm curious about the missing vig kill. Inactive? Roleblock? Or a voluntary abstention? Which isn't the craziest thing to have happen.

    Does anybody have an updated player list handy?

    For the record, I followed up on Knuckle's speculation with my LostNinja vote because I'd separately heard LostNinja's name come up as possibly suspicious from a different source, shortly after the vote last night

    Two players separately pointing in LostNinja's direction as possible Mafia is much more than the *nothing* I've had to go on the previous two nights, even if both people pointing the finger end up being wrong (possibly moreso, although obviously I understand if LostNinja doesn't feel that way about things)

    Vote Total at the Moment-

    H3Knuckles -1 (Romantic Undead)
    Raiden -1 (Chamberlain)
    LostNinja- 1 (mrpaku)
    Romantic Undead -1 (Brody)
    JayKaos- 1 (bluecyan)
    Phyphor- 1 (LostNinja)
    Brody- 1 (Virgil Leads You)

    Quite the spread, ladies and gentlemen. Anyone else sense trickery afoot?

    That is quite an array.

    It even would appear to be a trap, but for whom.

    All tied "winners" are killed.

    Very much doubt that's going to happen, in a bit we'll see the votes start pouring in.

  • JayKaosJayKaos Registered User regular
    Well now I don't wanna vote in case being the first person to break the tie is somehow suspicious.

    Buh, looking over my voting records again, Lost and Raiden both have perfectly plausible self-preservation justifications for one of the two days. I'm not really feeling any of the current crop, to be honest. I mean, I'm obviously biased towards Brody given how he came out swinging for me. Phyphor's been pretty quiet but he's been like that most of the games I've played with him so I really don't know if that signifies anything. Which leaves JayKaos because...?

    I guess I'll just go on the counter-attack and say Romantic Undead for not really contributing much other than accusations and asking people to mount a defense for me? Conversely, kime was being helpful with trying to extrapolate on roles and abilities from the days' results.

    Yeah I'm not too happy with any of these, I'll go with Romantic Undead cause I've got nothing better.

    The narration for day 2 said the vig didn't attempt anything, and we had several inactives day 2, either seems more probable than interference by players to me.

    Sorry, I just caught up.

    Why are we not all bandwagoning someone random and then having everyone seer people in some kind of coordinated fashion?

  • mrpakumrpaku Registered User regular
    I thought that method was only useful if you start with it on day one?

  • MrTLiciousMrTLicious Registered User regular
    It would have been more useful but I don't see why it wouldn't start working now.

  • MrTLiciousMrTLicious Registered User regular
    Phyphor is the only person left that I think should have suggested something along these lines already.

    There are items that let you become a thrall/miller, wouldn't that go counter to this plan?

    Yes, but it forces mafia to use 2 scares a day to thrall themselves. Every day.

    They will run out of scares presumably.

    We don't know how they get scares, or if that's the only way to get gifts.

    2 bandwagon days per seer / thrall unless we randomly land on a mafia target seems less than effective to me at least.

    Currently my count says there's a tie between Romantic Undead and Phyphor for 3 votes each. Anyone want to weigh in on which way they think it should go? Only an hour left and the following players have yet to vote AFAIK:

    Not that I disagree with my previous position or feel swayed by any of the new ones, but not gonna lie

    Joining the winning team and ginning up that third scare, despite however it may read to the peanut gallery afterwards, is getting reeeeaal tempting this evening

  • JPantsJPants Registered User regular
    Thanks for the tag. I have 10pm PST in my head, not est

    MrTs post is exactly he kind I would hate to see as mafia (been on the bad end of that before) so I guess Phyphor

  • Romantic UndeadRomantic Undead Registered User regular
    Phyphor for scares and self-preservation, then.
