It is possible that following through on this course of action will significantly affect your approval ratings. Are you sure you want to lynch Hebichan? At any rate, the protestors will prevent you from following through on this particular course of action for the next (expired on 2018-07-06 16:15:00), and you may change your decision if you so wish.

If you made assumptions about that then that's completely on you

If anyone had asked me directly about any of the text not in my mod colour then I'd have explained it was purely flavour too

Not that that affected the game because mutant just wanted to verify the claim iirc

I didn’t say I presumed there was—for all I know, it cod have been a trick—but at the same time, the flavour as well as the power itself actively discourages people from lynching scum and **makes people think that proceeding is a bad idea**.

Things the role does:
-Makes it slightly more annoying to lynch someone by delaying it 24 hours
-Adds a bit of a tense atmosphere like when the guy on who wants to be a millionaire asks "Is that your final answer?"
-Apparently it can be used to make janky fakeclaims that won't hold up to scrutiny


Things it does not do:
-Have any significant effect on the game by itself




You're only latching on to this role as the reason that you didn't finish catching Hebi (which it isn't) and town lost for a whole host of other reasons as well

This is my second scum game in a row where I sorta just openwolfed and hoped for the best, and both times my scum team won with zero scum deaths.

these are my thoughts on the setup:

i'm going to be honest and say that kingmaker-via-secret-voting - while thematic and different - is hard to play; it removes a lot of agency and accountability that i'm used to in mafia games because players who were't the president couldn't really directly affect the lynch and it's hard to track people's thoughts throughout the game with no votes; there wasn't really any accountability

also being forced to wait six irl days before we voted for presdient was also kinda difficult; besides for like day1 the candidates were decided fairly quickly and there wasn't really anything to do for several irl days waiting for the presidential election - it kinda negated the natural flow of a mafia game. i think that's where a lot of the apathy came from, which helped scum a lot because it imo significantly adversely affected town's ability to gain momentum. like half the playerlist was prodging for the second half of the game and it wasn't even viewed as scummy anymore

i really, really, really loved the theme tho and how the roles and mechanics mimicked actual institutions and trends in politics

Yeah it's difficult to market apathy as a feature

Doing it as a marathon would definitely keep things quick

I am not hip to the lingo term "wolfy." Explain this term briefly?
