    Since everyone has a public power, I'm planning to target either you or Gnasty tonight.

    Anything you want to tell me to change my mind? I'll let you know right now; I'm not a bad guy.

    Gnasty, I will forward you this PM if you don't believe me.

    Even though it was B:L who recommended me to kill you in the past two games I was playing as vigilante? :P

    B:L: I took it as you were planning on targeting me with a vigilante-type power. Regardless, my vote still stands for now. We've got until 11pm tomorrow night to see how this plays out.

    I do love the attention, though. I expect it in several other games, or I will target you every chance I get.

    Edit: Also, B:L has been proven more dangerous then myself. Thus, I will seek to extinguish the threat.

    Thanks Goof. :^:

    Edit, since no one else is posting - Hmm, I would hope the bad guys don't know each other, because if they did then the write access denial role would be pretty powerful for them to have (assuming one of them got one). Plus in the description of it, it uses group... which infers that there are several groups out there that can kill.

    I'll get in on some of that hot target: FunkyWaltDogg action, too, pk. It's great fun for the whole file system!

    Curiously, I'll try rm -rf Drez. So far, though, I love you all.

    This is certainly...difficult. Using powers publicly really changes things.

    If I had to guess, I'd say the vigilante style runtime is a private runtime. If it weren't, things would be very difficult, as the vigilante runtimes would have to ensure that they were never the only person using their action against a person, and they wouldn't have much choice in the matter of who they attacked, since the baddies could simply follow the trail of kills back to its source. It's hard to describe, but anyway, vigilante is probably private.

    It's frustrating trying to analyze these powers, since any analysis I can think of would undoubtedly help the bad guys identify certain powers, which is bad for us.

    Clarification: Does Write Access Denial prevent all uses of powers against the runtime user, or merely deletion? For example, if one were to use WAD against someone who was using the Sweeper runtime on that person, would the Sweep be stopped? Similary, would the use of WAD on an innocent file prevent all runtimes executed against the WAD user by innocent files, even if it didn't stop a nonlethal runtime?

    Even I started to lose what I meant there. Okay, if someone uses WAD against a Sweeper who's Sweeping them, does the Sweep still work? If the Sweeper is an innocent, does the use of WAD against that Sweeping innocent prevent all innocent runtimes against that person, lethal and nonlethal alike?

    Still overly complex. Can you elaborate on what Write Access Denial prevents?

    I mean, gawrsh. This whole thing sure does hurt my head. Somebody come quick!
