    For all the talk about the demons being invincible, that Ardor/Smasher combo role was brutal.

    The role itself wasn't actually as powerful as it seemed; we were essentially just a vigilante/guardian mason combo, which was hardly out of line with the other powers in the game. What ended up keeping me alive forever was the items; the Falcon up on Ardor gave me an extra night after he died, then you had to kill him again, and then the bucket saved me the night after that. We actually had one more guard from an item for last night, but events went otherwise.

    Ironically, the night he came back to life, you were wide open to attack. His item-based revival removed your invulnerability.

    I'm kind of surprised the assembly wasn't used to attempt to affect game mechanics more.
    If I or B:L had been made the representative, we would've tried to create a special "Spectrum 5" win condition, also later in the game, we tried to get Infidel converted to the good guys.

    Unfortunately, this never came to pass.

    A spectrum 5 win condition would have been such genius, especially if it had been carried out.

    It was all semi-annoying since every time I checked back the thread had grown 45 pages, but the spectrum stuff was also pretty hilarious.

    I may recall more shenanigans as I browse my notes, but the absolute top crown go to:

    The Spectrum Five.

    Remember that bum rush vote switch they pulled to switch the Rep. vote to TehSpectre?

    They lost by one vote. The one that TehSpectre didn't make.

    You are a Thief in the service of Veldime.

    You must see all the Demons destroyed to obtain a victory.

    Additionally, you may attempt to steal a player's item each night. If a player has no item, you have a 50/50 chance of learning their role instead.

    Be quick of feet, and even quicker of hand.

    These guys turned out to be much deadlier than I thought.
    Well, what else do you expect for Garret? :b

    Jester tried to kill Smasher on night 7, but was guarded. I think by Gumpy.

    Yep, the Spectrum Five tried their damnedest to lose the game for us.

    Luckily, Zot had his priorities straight.

    Oh shit. He told me about the removed invulnerability when he guarded me the next night, but somehow I failed to put two and two together there.

    I have no idea why I wasn't attacked that night.

    I fucked up on saving Ardor the night he died. I had an item that gave me an extra vote if I had pink in the same post, which I think would have been enough to keep him alive.

    Unfortunately, I forgot that vote close was dictated by the time rather than when cj said vote was closed. Oops.

    In a sense, yes. I went for shorter load times over quality. I had a LOT of images to upload.

    Speaking of the item, nice try at tricking me with it Infidel.

    He gave me the item the day he died, telling me to be sure to give it to someone safe. Of course to use the item you have to make a vote post with pink in it in the thread, which would effectively out a member of the network to them! I considered giving it to a random person I found suspicious, but since Infidel was the one who gave it to me he would have told the rest of the demons about it already. Maybe I could have done that anyway and used it as a seering if that person didn't die the next day.

    One other quirk I remembered: 'Overkill' on night 7 referred to Laharl/FWD and Etna/Aldo both targeting Stew_Stick, then Ash/Ardor and Jennifer/Zot both targeting Pretentious.

    It depends on the way you phrased the proposal, but I would have likely thought of something.

    I tried to bluff Zot into believing I still had the bucket and so attacking me would be a waste, so they should seer me instead. And when they seered me as evil, they'd try to vote me out :P (according to my plan, at least)
    But it didn't work.
    My other antics that night included telling Ardor that Stew_Stick had told me that TehSpectre wasn't the vigilante. Why Stew? Because FWD was going to kill him anyway. But then Zot like, "confirmed" that Stew_Stick was the seer (should have known that was a bad sign, but I was desperate) so I went to the proboard going all 'Oh man Stew's the seer, off him" and I guess Aldo switched over to killing Stew as well.

    Yeah, this. The code was the hash of the phrase "The person explaining this message is a member of the network." (minus quotes) I gave them that phrase and an online site people could use to verify the hash.

    I'm almost disappointed that never became necessary.

    Forgot one little thing to share:

    The Baal Prophecy.
    cj iwakura wrote:
    You've heard whispers, fearful rumors in the darkness.

    The true Lord of Nightmares, Baal.

    baal.jpg

    Confined to oblivion long ago, legend says he is never far from the Netherworld.

    Perhaps if the Overlords combine their influence, you will see the terror of his power unleashed on those who would dare defy him.

    There are those out there with the capacity to bring the demons together.

    You would do well to seek them out, but exert caution with the sharing of your trust.

    Was given to all Overlords after night 2. Pram(Pretentious) had a heads up in the role PM, but a vague one.

    Well if he targeted differently (he should have attacked the guardian of course) and put his vote on the guarded guy...

    Kill the two, dodge the vote, third eats the vote, hey look I won.

    With the proper setup (I didn't know if Nion would figure it out or not) it was 50/50 for him to win.

    This was what I was going for. I just didn't know who the guardian was. I did, however, know that El Skid was a special, as I'd seered him with an item. But, it doesn't really matter when my 50/50 chance failed anyway.

    When it comes to evils, there's usually one spokesman and the rest stay quiet as to avoid notice.
    Yes, evils can use inactive voting to keep the attention off of themselves, but I'd still rather vote off an inactive than someone who's actually having fun, even if they are evil.
