I'd hold off on voting, not abstaining :P and it'll last for one day, probably in every match because it really does suck to go so early. And if I were suspicious enough of someone to vote for them in R1, then yes, I'd vote for them. But I don't think I've ever been sure enough of my suspicions in R1 to honestly say I would vote in the exact same circumstance in, say, R4. There's just rarely a chance to get enough information.

A word to the wise:

If you have a role that provides you with information about other players, be careful about how you reveal that information if you're not ready/willing to roleclaim. Two tips:

1. Certainty can be dangerous. If you suddenly are uncharacteristically certain of the alignment of another player with little backing proof, this may tip your hand. It's fine to show certainty, but making a vague statement about most of the players followed by a dead certain statement that so-and-so is a rogue is a massive tip-off to the rogue team if that person is, in fact, a rogue.

Note, however, that it is nowhere near as helpful to the town because the town will hear the same information and not know whether or not your information is correct.

2. Daybreak is dangerous. You FoS Player A on Day 1, and then you drop the FoS right near the start of Day 2 for an inconclusive reason. To a role-hunting rogue who knows Player A is innocent, a good reason for a change in opinion is that you have an important role. To the town, at best there might be suspicion that you have an important role but it's much less convincing than it is to the rogues.

It is possible that some aspects of these bits of advice might not be relevant this game due to roles and game specifics, but both of these are based on cases where a PWS was banned for accidentally tipping their hand. In both cases, the information the PWS had tipped was entirely overlooked by the town.

All in all, remember: if you choose to try and leak out information before you decide to roleclaim using *wink wink nudge nudge* style posts, it is possible that some town members will catch on and pay attention to your information. It's more likely that the rogues will catch on, however, and then you probably die.

Well, my suspicions start at 5, or neutral for everyone, and change accordingly. So for me, a 6.5 and a 6 aren't too high.

Well, I don't really know. I guess just to explain why I hadn't done it with my slightly earlier post.
As to the bolded bit- I don't quite understand what you are asking there, if you could make it a bit more obvious, I would thank you.

Okay, that makes more sense.

I was trying to understand the motivation behind that line. The motivation is that you made a post but didn't vote, and then voted in your second post. The reason you voted in your second post and not the first is because the first was on the first page so you waited until it ticked over to the second page.

I was confused because the only motivation I saw was relating to your own vote, and you had already said that it wasn't a statement about your own vote being not serious. So I thought you were saying it wasn't at all about your own vote, but then it loses meaning in other senses.

The bolded portion is just me trying to figure out what the comment was about, because you had already said it wasn't about your early vote.

Thanks for the clarification.

As an aside, in terms of not voting on the first page...voting on the second page isn't much of a change. Generally, I'd describe the unspoken rule as being more related to waiting to vote until there's been some game discussion rather than until we've had a set number of posts. Many games ago there was a discussion about cheese that took up a good portion of the first 50-100 posts.

(( 24 hours behind, I know it's night, but I thought the rules said we can post at night. Should be caught up soon.))

My FOS's: Quitex, and TheRack.

Q, for the whole "I am not a rogue" thing.
The Rack for the whole "Maybe we're all roleless until we do something" -- the whole point of "Choose your book, and determine your role" seemed obvious as soon as it was stated.

 
"Right, crew. All of you take a book. I don't care which, but read them and report back to me or Furare. I want to figure out what's going on here."

As for myself, my book was just a journal. Nothing particularly useful. Guy named Cuwen had a new way of teaching and writing music. All I can do is attempt to gather information at night, just like a bunch of people.

But notice how that doesn't identify me as a role holder, a roleless, or a rogue. Just someone slightly out of sanity for saying something about it at all.

Meanwhile, are the rest of the Loyal Crewmates going to report back, as instructed by Our Captain, about what they read?

(Any similarities to Loyal Citizens and The Computer is purely your mind's chaos :-).

 
Why would rogues be able to hunt for clues to help the town?

Maybe they want to find out what the town really found out. You know, just because someone says "I found X" doesn't mean that that's the real discovery. If multiple people find the truth, then hey, there you go. If the rogues find out Y, and some else reports X, then the rogues gain information for use against another person, to cast suspicion and doubt.

After all, would these fine GM's really design a game where at most one person can discover a truth, where it's not possible for two people to independently get an answer?

 
We havent had much more than meta and suspicion based off meta, have we?

Vote: Behindcurtai

Tee hee. Very well, yes, I generally am a meta player. Can't help it. It's my nature.

It gives people a chance to use their abilities and report back, contributing to The Town's Loyal Effort.

(sorry, I'm starting a paranoia campaign series of one-offs at the local gaming store, and it's a mood thing )

Ok, please tell me: Who is Smileo besides Smileo? I just remember him as a good roleplaying Owl.

(Ahh: Enzo is Smileo? Yes, their posting style does seem eerily similar.)

I think we probably should minimize how much we're talking about the specific content of the books we chose. My impression is that way game exploitation lies.

Some people seem to be confused as to how an abstain vote works in the vote totals, unless I'm misinterpreting. That aside, it did bring up something interesting - playing the "Let me get out of your way while you vote for people!" card. That, to me, is early game rogue to a T. I can forgive Sniper a bit for still being new, but I figure TMBC should know better.


Just the opposite. I know that people get upset if a vote is blocked because there are not enough votes cast. I also know that I would not get back before the deadline.

I'm actually trying to be a co-operating townie, not in the way of anything the town does while I cannot help directly.

 
The whole issue with the roles this game is the insanity cost. Everything extra is tied to it, so it will be more difficult to reach to the information we need.


Not true. In normal games, you are told you can use your power N times. Here, N is a moderator secret.

No thanks.

You are correct. In the rules post, we were told not to list the three choices in the thread. However, in the game post, our captain did tell us to report back on what we read.

There's a difference between what we claim to want to read (three choices), and what we claim that we actually read (captain's instructions)

Is it fishing for information? Absolutely. Think of it this way: If every townie reports something harmless, and no one tries to say "Hey, that was my book, you lier", then we know that the remaining harmful books are rogues.

I had assumed a "no referencing the flavour of PMs" rule would be in force, but in light of BehindCurtai's post and subsequent discussion I chose to look at the rules in detail, and the only rule close to it is this:

The Rules wrote: 
- No player may post either screenshots or direct quotes of a moderator PM (or anything purporting to be such) for any reason whatsoever. Anyone disregarding this rule will be modlynched.


Which explicitly only prohibits screenshots and (purported) direct quotes. Interesting.

- Wondering where this might lead if within the rules, and fearing BC may be in some trouble if not, Nom.

I feel like the spirit of the game rule is that if you're using specific information from PMs to try and suss out the rogues or roleholders on the basis of what they did or didn't get, it's against the rules.

That said, BC's suggestion doesn't work. At all. As he says, if all the townies report in we find out who the rogues are, but that requires us to know who the townies are.

I've already reported to the captain. Neener neener.

Ok, I'm going to really try to get this across right...

I was diagnosed with tendonitis. Specifically in the elbow. My doctor's low key solution was to prescribe a higher-than-normal dose of prednisone for 5 days; I'm on Day 2.

Problem is, prednisone makes me really, really, really wound up. I read fast, that's not the issue, but some of you will remember how I've said that you have 'voices' in my head when I read your posts? Yeah, you're all talking as fast as the Micromachine Man. Please to be stopping it. On the plus side, my elbow doesn't hurt...or if it does, I don't give a rat's patootie.

It will also probably lead to some off the wall posts that will make you think I'm loaded. Well, I AM. I will try to do my best to NOT be terribly annoying. Man, I've never typed this fast EVER, and I haven't had to hit backspace at all! It's a record!

@Sear ->> If you photoshop that, I wanna see it!

I think I missed TMBC too. He always has a nice spin on things.

Good morning and welcome to Day 2.

bethieboo has replaced the inactive Erissar.

Ban Notice:

 
The Rogue closed the door behind them and locked it. "No one can hear you," she said calmly. She took the gun from her bag. "You or this."
Luvessy smiled innocently. "There are lots of us, though. Lots more than here." She put one small scrubbed hand on the paper-tray of the mimeograph machine. "Would you like to see me change again?" Before she could speak, Luvessy's face began to shimmer into the grotesqueness beneath and The Rogue shot her. Once. In the head. She fell back against the paper-lined shelves and slid down to the floor, a little dead girl with a round black hole above her right eye.


Luvessy has been banned.

Your next lynch deadline is Sunday 25th September at 6:30AM PDT.

There are 26 players remaining; you require 20 votes total for the 75% quota, or 14 votes on the same player for a majority.

In regards to the ban posting-
Since when have Rogues used guns? This seems out of the ordinary, as rogues traditionally use bansticks.

I'm going to assume that the use of a gun in an island tale falls under the umbrella of thematic fluff, so I will not be looking at it too closely.


I really don't know what to think of BC's night posts. I do feel the same way as yesterday about his day posts, though. I just don't see how his night posts make any sense, regardless of his alignment. The risk/reward is way off-balance in either case.

Re: TMBC

I have a hard time believing that an innocent townie, who is also an experienced player and game moderator, would come into this game looking for a way to break it.

I could possibly see it as a rogue ploy to suss out the town roleholders. Or, more likely, just an innocent-looking scheme that no-one would ever agree to.

Like, seriously?

Bethieboo!!!! *squeeee*

And, basically, my top suspicion right now is Therack and BC. Goats is a third, distant suspicion.

By the way, PDT is Pacific? I am Mountain (until DLS when I become Central. When is DLS?) so I need to know what would be the time for nightfall for me. Fanks :3

My opinion of my whole experience varies from time to time.

I think Searmin is right about the things role players should watch out for. I do not trust BehindCurtai's role claim. I don't understand why he posted all that. I thought Quitex' claim was kind of weird, but not as weird as BehindCurtai's. I'm pretty sure the part about "report back" was just story talk for sending the PM choosing the books. I don't think we were supposed to all post what our books were about.
