Mine is only Enchanted here (1 game together). I think this kind of information is useful, as reading players you "know" based on their meta/playstyle is almost necessary to reliably determine their alignment in my experience. Unless Enchant starts scumtelling, I'll be voting somebody else.

Why did you feel compelled to mention this

Because my post had 0 contribution, wanted to state that I won't leave it at that.

Yeah but the rest of the room was pretty much at 0 contribution at that time, so it's not like I was expecting you to come out swinging lol

Were you eager to move on from RVS? That's the only reason I could gather from worrying about filler

Isn't that the goal? RVS is the worst state for town, no information.

RVS is great actually because what you have is a timeframe where nothing is known about town's motives and scum has to take more chances. A lot of the hits may come off tonally early on but it's still important

@BBmolla: maybe you are onto something, however I will keep my vote where it is right now.

@unwnd: feel free to vote for Enchant, I am guessing it will not count as OMUS.

In post 24, Ahri wrote:Hi friends, town vig here, shooting the player with the most pepega name tn, thank

Well, that is probably me. Please find a better reason and vote for that someone.


@SE or @mod Game clarification: is there an easy (i.e. lazy) way of checking current voting tally?


NB: soon I will have to be absent for several hours, damn meatworld!

BBMOLLA DAILY

in todays news stocks are in the toilet

however, there is good news for those with paper hands. stock in votes on salsa are on the rise, as their opening posts mean they are likely scum

bbmolla was reached for questioning

"yeah at first i just didn't like their font text color but then i actually read their opening posts and they seemed scummy" the fiery attractive redhead said

we asked bbmolla about his outfit and he said "no comment" but then proceeded to comment "i dressed the same way on my first birthday"

I'm guessing MrSunrise and Enchant aren't mafpartners, based on MrSunrise's nonchalant switch from voting BBmola to Enchant.

LOL! If you go through my previous games you can see that I always use colored texts, it's not an AI thing for me.
My opening posts are garbage! If you still think those are AI thing too, then well....

I mean, no one will leave it at that, so don't see the requirement to mention that, to be honest.

Essentially, one of the SE slots was designated as ALSO providing a teaching role. here's my old boilerplate IC post:

Subject: Newbie 1508 [GAME OVER]

Cabd wrote:Hello! I am the IC (Inexperience-challenged) player in this game. That means in addition to playing as a player, I am also the teacher of sorts for this game. Regardless of my alignment, I am governed by the rules set forth for IC players. This means I WILL NOT lie to you about game theory, proper practices, and the like. If you have any sort of question about what a term means, what the acceptable plays are for a certain scenario, etc, I will answer it truthfully to the best of my abilities. I will cover some basic stuff in the next few sections. Click "show" to reveal the sections that you are interested in.

Spoiler: Starting the Game
The game usually starts in what is known as "RVS" which stands for "Random Voting Stage." In this phase of the game, players often cast votes for silly or little to no reason to get the game started. The game will progress out of RVS naturally within a page (1 page = 25 posts) or two.

Please note that it is ALWAYS better to lynch on day one than no lynch. This means that there will be one of us sent to the gallows within the next 14 days.


Spoiler: How to Play
During the day, it is your job to vote for the player you wish to be lynched. Use vote tags like so:

Code: Select all
[vote]Cabd[/vote]


Code: Select all
[unvote]Cabd[/unvote]


You can unvote and revote as often as you'd like, your vote isn't "stuck" or anything of the sort.

Try to make a post at least once every real life day. The game is a lot mroe fun and solvable when everyone is contributing.

Do ~NOT~ claim your role unless you are at what is known as "L-1". This means that there are enough votes minus one before you are lynched. There are several reasons for this, and I can go into more detail if anyone is curious.


Spoiler: Some Terms and Abbreviations
Here's a quick non-perfect list of terms you may seen thrown around:

IC: Inexperience-Challenged player (that's me!)
SE: Semi-experienced challenged player
Scum: General term for non-town alignments, in the case of this game, the mafia players
Maf: Mafia
L-# : The number of votes before a player is lynched.
LYLO: Lynch (correctly) or lose. This means that if a lynch on town occurs, the mafia immediately wins
MYLO: Lynch (correctly or nolynch) or lose. This means a no lynch is allowable to drop numbers before LYLO.



Thanks for this post :] I was struggling to remember the full form of LYLO and MYLO.
