DrenchSeraphim

The Dead

The Rules:
1.) Votes must be bolded and at the start of a line. If we don’t see it, we wont count it.
2.) Unvoting is nice, but not necessary.
3.) Once a majority is reached, that person is lynched.
4.) If there is no majority at deadline, there will be no lynch for that day.
5.) All deadlines are two weeks.
7.) Do not talk about this game outside the thread unless your role allows you to.
8.) When you die, you are dead. Stay that way.
9.) Do not edit posts. Do not use invisible text. Do not use small text.
10.) Do not quote any communication from the mod (that includes PMs) in the game thread.
11.) If you are going to be gone for an extended period of time, please let me know.
13.) If you notice mistakes aside from the vote count, PM me. Bold notification about vote count issues in the thread.
14.) Play to win.
15.) Play with the spirit of the game in mind.
15.a.) This means ASK before you do something you think I might question. Questions are good. Modkills are bad.
16.) Have fun. Remember that everyone playing are actually real people and treat them as such.
17.) Red is our color. Don’t use it.

The Roles:
Two players have the following role:
Human Lover wrote:You know its time to show these robots that passion overrides logic. That love conquers all.
The easiest way to do this, of course, is to help them kill each other until you can subdue the rest.


You are lovers with XXXX. When one of you is lynched, you both die. You may talk at all times here: XXXX
You have no kill.
You win when you comprise half of the remaining players.

Four players have the following role:
Robot wrote:Love? What is love?
This is a question you never want answered. You want to crush the life out of those that would try and teach it to you.


You are a vanilla townsperson.
You have no kill.
You win when the Human Lovers have been disposed of.

In the perfectly built and perfectly run town of Robotopia, all was... perfect.

Until one day during a routine surveying mission the strangest thing was uncovered: a hut. Not of robot make, but with steam pouring out of the top. Intrigued, the surveyors moved closer to see if the hut was sentient and inside they found something even stranger: two pink animals wearing other animal scraps communicating with one another!

As they approached with kill-lasers set on ultra-kill one of the animals looked up. As their eyes locked with those of the surveyors things became, unbelievably, even more strange. All of the surveyors optic chips malfunctioned and they stopped seeing and started feeling.

This lead to the first emotion these robots would ever know. Fear. Kill lasers went every direction until the hut was a smoldering mess and only six stood. Yet, their optics were still out and they were still feeling.

This lead to the second emotion you will know. Rage.

Find the cause. Kill it. Set yourself free. Before its too late.

Before you learn to love.

You'd think with only 6 people the confirmation stage would be a little faster.

Who is getting replaced? Both Drench and AdumbroDeus? Or just one of them or what?

edit: because it seems like you're saying only one person is being replaced, but neither of them have confirmed.

This is a good question but before I can answer it we must first delve deep into the understandings we must derive from the question itself. Exactly what can we derive from the pretext of such a question? Two players, Drench and AdumbroDeus, have replaced out from their previous incarnations as players, now reduced to mere spectators within the plane of existence between the state of "playing" and the state of "not playing". What is their commitment in the larger scheme of things, reduced to a certain limitation of nothingness, until they are no longer players? These two, having traversed this plane, leaves in their wake a certain void without limitations, only to be filled by someone coming from, in fact, the opposite direction of this natural plane between states. This void must be filled in order for the game, not in progress but certainly well on its way, to continue. Thus, a natural impasse is reached. How can it be possible for the game to continue in a state of uncertain unresolved certainty of nothingness compounded twicefold? The only way is for the void to be filled, naturally, by another coming from the opposite direction of certainty, into a greater or lesser twisting of abstract fact and faction that is what we like to call, in fact, the game of Mafia. Two players, resolute in their steadfastness, bravely and deeply, ventured into this deep void of emptiness left by previously aforementioned departures of a unfortunate nature. Thusly, the two players, Jahudo and myself, entered into this game.

Now, within in this context, we must ask ourselves: why am I, Seraphim, scum? The answer: a random influx of data stemming from meteorological occurrences then channeled into a identifiable stream of numbers. This is better known as a random number generator, which most likely handed out the rules. Unfortunately, this question has the rather bizarre quality of creating a strange contradiction between what I believe is truth and what you, curiouskarmadog, believe as truth. You see, the question assumes, to a large degree, that I am "scum" or more accurately, the "Human Lover" role. This is simply not factual accurate and implies two things, both of which could compound the difficulty of the game. The first thing implicated by your statement is that I am the "Human Lover" role, which simply isn't true based on my current knowledge of the game, which seems to state that I am a town role. The second thing implicated by your statement is that you have some sort of previous knowledge of the game's inner workings, this given by your certainty implied by the wording of your question. The only players given knowledge of the game's inner workings are the "scum" roles, players with a deeper knowledge of the game's enemies due to their status of aforementioned enemies. So, if your question is factually accurate, the only explanation of the game is that you and I are, in fact, "scum", or the "Human Lover" role, together.

As part of my role as a "scumbag", I should attempt to adhere to a town mindset, which would seem to include lynching "scum" and knowing that the "scum" are attempting to do the same. Therefore, coming to this conclusion, I, as scum, would be most suited to voting the player most likely to be scum aka curiouskarmadog, my partner given by the logic given above.

Ergo,

Unvote
Vote: curiouskarmadog

First time, actually. Although now that you've used it, I'm shocked I haven't gotten it more.

Vote: Andrius, come on by and say hello to the thread.

Also, Seraphim is obvtown, only robots can be that smart.

Maybe I'm whatever that role is, you know, the outsider one, as a hidden role? I remember reading about it but I forget the name for it. Miller? I dunno, but my PM says I'm town-aligned.
