    I went to rimilder last night since someone up thread said they got an item, I couldn’t get past the monsters.

    Maybe groups don’t matter, but only one person at random gets through per night?

    I’ll counter that with another suggestion.

    I think it’s a mafia ability. I went to Hauksness and got blocked by monsters as well, so i think they can choose to block certain locations.

    So, let’s not announce in thread where people are going anymore.

    This should be fairly easy to (attempt to) confirm:

    Did anyone go to a place that WASN'T mentioned in the thread as a good explore target (I think only Rim and Hauk were floated as good targets) and still got turned away by monsters?

    H3Knuckles for hubris.

    I gotta go to work but I'll be back before close.

    I feel like I should clarify that I don't see that as a boast; I think my avoiding votes has been because the more experienced players have decided I'm not much of a threat when I'm playing low key. I seem to survive when I'm not aggressively networking or playing a big role in the thread, and if I do either of those I usually get killed.

    Or tell us more about Rimuldar, but nobody else took me up on that either.

    I tried to go there, the wilderness surrounding it had too many monsters. Rimuldar in the game is a safe village (unlike Haukness), so to me this suggests that either the monster gating is a mafia ability, or it's meant to be the random encounters you have to fight on the way (unless you perfectly time things to manipulate the games RNG to avoid them, like that speedrunner). If it's the latter, I guess we need to find a weapon but none of the available locations that should be accessible have ones to find IIRC. Although I guess Sir Fab was probably telling the truth about that shield that shouldn't have been there if we're sticking to the game, so who knows?

    Y'know, early day two I was almost wondering about ZH being the one who suggested the shortlist, and then being so quick to push that we needed something else to get past the 'too many monsters'. Glad I didn't act on that since I was wrong to suspect him, but frustrated I didn't at least bring up the 'maybe mafia can block 3 places a night' theory in thread (figure ~5 mafia originally, so I wonder what the other two powers are/were).

    Anyone know what the Darkness feels alive here might mean?

    I haven't played this game, so I'm mostly just playing regular Phalla.

    I found a treasure box, but it was empty at the castle.

    Just some mechanics speculation regarding mafia:
    1. Dragon Lord - either tempting the hero to betray the village, or turning into a dragon if attacked*
    2. Green Dragon - guarding a location for a night
    3. Red Dragon - guarding a location for a night
    4. Blue Dragon - guarding a location for a night
    5. Golem - preventing us from being able to explore the optional hidden village (which has some cool gear, but none of Erdrick's stuff) until they are removed from play
    Mafia group kill would be the burning death (hence the three words being used). Thoughts?

    *Yeah, Dragon Lord is basically male Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, isn't he? Tall, weird-looking sorcerous person in dark robes, with a cap that has big horns on it, lives in a spooky castle, acts against a princess and takes the light/life away from the kingdom. Turns into a dragon when attacked by the hero, too. Funny that they were just taking a cue from Disney, but inadvertently created the videogame trope of the final villain always having a 'true form' that has to be defeated after their first.

    There is a variation of the skeleton enemies that's represented as a pure shadow. If you mean Charlock, the shadow skeleton can appear there, and there are two items that can be obtained: Erdrick's sword (from a chest), and the Ball of Light (from defeating Dragon Lord). Maybe someone already got the sword?

    Thank you for this break down!!

    We already know that mrpaku was dragonlord, so we can count that out. So, we need to be on the look out to who could be green Dragon, red dragon, blue dragon, and golem. From my understanding the analysis that @H3Knuckles has made makes most sense given how people searched caves and monsters prevented searches and then some searched the same the next day (and didn't say anything) and got items.

    Now I understand that h3knuckles is spitballing ideas, but given that I have no idea what the game is and this is the best info given, I am rolling with it.

    Potentially, if the mafia blocking items is correct, Locus may have picked up an item day 1 or about to day 2, and mafia offed him to get rid of the item.

    Thoughts from the vote records:
    1) Discrider switches their vote around like crazy compared to pretty much everybody else. Also, managed to get the very first vote every single day so far.

    2) I think kime's vote Day 1 could be considered somewhat suspicious; mrpaku was already leading the village vote when kime dumped a late vote onto the wagon.

    3) Then there was mrpaku's "dice rolled" tiebreaker vote that happened during Day 1.

    If I'm reading this right, and please someone correct me if I'm not:

    Currently in the lead, with two votes apiece- kime, auralynx, mrpaku, H3knuckles, Bedlam, premium...

    premium for self preservation and to break up the current six way tie for the vote (sorry premium, I rolled a dice and your number came up). How long we got until vote close?
    Now that we know mrpaku was mafia his previous actions become more suspect. Did he really "roll dice" and vote premium? Or was he deflecting away from other potential mafia members he may have been tied with at the time? Or some kind of fake out where he wanted us to focus on those names and not premium? At the very least I'd say kime, Auralynx, H3Knuckles, Bedlam, and premium warrant a closer inspection.

    4) Day 2 had a massive bandwagon on Sir Fabulous, people piling on votes at points where he was well head in the vote count. We see certain names linked to previous mentioned suspicious activity reappear: Auralynx, premium, Bedlam.

    This really doesn't seem to mean much given that Locus didn't actually vote for Green. And all the people who did vote for Green on Day 1 and 2 are all still alive.

    Putting me in the top tie when i didn't have two votes feels like mafia purposefully obfuscating things.

    Like the shade that discrider has been trying to throw on me all game when there is nothing there.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    You voted for Sir Fab after he declared the item.
    You were part of MrPaku's tie even if the actual vote doesn't back that up, and I don't think the others are as suspect.
    You wanted everyone to stack on one location, and we now think the mafia can block locations.
    You said that light was needed in the caves after everyone was blocked by monsters.
    And you threw shade on me earlier today.

    So yeah, you're suspect.

    I was talking with Locus yesterday. Had reached out, but we didn't share all that much. He said he had gone to the Swamp cave night one and got stopped by monsters, and then last night he said he was going to go to the grave.

    Other than locations we visited, we didn't share much. He said he was talking with someone else also but he didn't so who it was.
