true. but n1 it doesnt matter for the lyncher. theyre immune and their target is immune. doesnt matter n1 what happens to the lyncher. their target is guaranteed to be alive till d2 at the very least.

Nope. Lyncher still doesn't want their target nk-d N1, because that's two players who are actively going to avoid their target's lynch.

This setup is a testimony to why the linear approach to claiming we use here is sub-optimal. It is effectively a work of art. You should feel proud of your creation, Elsa Jay.

no, mafia dont know if theyre lyncher or lynchee. they could be either. sure, scum may avoid them, but thats only 2/7 players.

3/8, the lynchee also won't vote themselves. Which means the lyncher needs EVERY town vote in order to lynch the lynchee if the mafia shoot the lynchee on N1.

It is also fairly easy to discern the lyncher/lynchee dynamic (to an extent) with too much information. I, for instance, had a very strong read that I was the lynchee due to being aware that I was town and observing the way in which my wagon took off.

Well the fact it did end day 1 was funny, I'll give it that. Thanks. Hope you all enjoyed it!

I'll add this part to the Open Discussion Thread later on to keep track of how it went. Maybe it could be run again later? Whoever likes it can use it.
I made a GTKAS. Go shitpost in it if you want. It's very lonely. Or check out Lynch Happy instead. I'm pretty proud of it.

Wrong. EJ should be ashamed and horrified.

Look what your careless hands have wrought! LOOK!



And any maf-vet knows that the L-1 -> Intent -> Claim structure we drill into newbies isn't infallible. It's just a framework. The problems arise when people who don't consider the ramifications of their actions claim outside of that framework.

That is a reasonable. Perhaps I would be better spending my time praising Austerity for his out-of-the-box critical thinking. I do not "blame" anybody who disagrees with my opinion on claiming.

I do believe that anybody who wishes to become a better mafia player will do themselves a favor by reconsidering the frameworks which we drill into our newbies. But nobody is blameless for playing what they believe is an optimal game. There are only a finite number of people who play mafia in a way which is actively detrimental to their win condition; much of the rest of becoming better is learning from experiences.
