"so you're saying it took you a whole month just to find me?"
"you were well hidden."
"yeah, but this is your job, right? shouldn't you be better than that?"
"I had other things going on. you weren't the only task on my plate."
"so what now?"
"what do you mean, what now?"
"like, what's your plan with me? are you going to kill me?"
"obviously yes."
"well then... do it."
"really? that's a bit blithe of you. no last words about the injustice in this world?"
"I've known you were coming for me, Dorothy. Markus made it clear that a storm would follow when he died, and when you entered his employ, I knew it could only be for this. he wanted to take down his enemies, even if only from the grave."
"I'm more than just a simple killer, Roderick."
"yes, but you are a killer all the same."
"not for long. Markus always believed there would be a culling, but he didn't want to be the one to carry it out."
"you're not saying--"
"yes, that's exactly what I'm saying."
"the sequences."
"that's right, Roderick."
"Markus was a fool for believing the sequences could work, and you're a fool for believing that his mission is one worth carrying out."
"I'm willing to die for his mission, if that's what it takes."
"you're not saying--"
"yes, that's what I'm saying. I will be part of the first sequence. if I'm worthy of life, I will live."
"you're insane."
"perhaps. but you know what else I am, for now at least?"
the blade pierces Roderick Howell's jugular, blood pouring out everywhere. Dorothy looks back over her shoulder as he slumps to the ground, lifeless, and says one last word.
"alive."

game rules
    site rules:
  1. obey all site rules. you can read the site rules here.
  2. do not discuss the game in any capacity outside of this game thread unless your role gives you explicit permission to do so. if you are allowed to do so, I will provide you with a private topic where you can do so.
  3. do not harass other players in this game. while a certain level of confrontation and argumentation is typical in Mafia games, do not bring personal vendettas or outside influences into the game. additionally, do not harm or threaten to harm any person.

    game conduct:
  4. play to win the game. there is a chance that you will lose the game, but do your best to avoid that, and do not deliberately throw the game.
  5. do not use the color #8C0000.
  6. do not use any sort of cryptography, hidden text, or other similar methods to hide information in the game thread unless your role explicitly states that you may do so. if you are unsure of what is not allowed, PM me for clarification.
  7. do not quote information from private threads or from the moderator.
  8. if you have access to a private thread, assume that that is the only place where you may communicate privately with the other people in that thread unless your role explicitly says otherwise.

    joining the game, leaving the game, and activity:
  9. at the beginning of the game, you will receive a role PM. please confirm by telling me your alignment and any players whose alignment you know, along with a brief summary of any non-vanilla abilities you have.
  10. if you will be away from the site for a set period of time, please post in the thread letting the other players know this and PM me, and update the "Vacation / Limited Access" info in the User Control Panel. I will be more lenient regarding inactivity if you are V/LA, but I may need to replace you if you will be gone for an extended period of time. if you are regularly V/LA at certain times (such as during the weekend), you only need to do this once.
  11. if you do not post for awhile (no specific amount of time -- this will depend on how the rest of the game is progressing), I will prod you (or send you a reminder to check in when possible if you have announced that you are V/LA); failure to respond to prods or needing to be prodded repeatedly throughout the game might result in a replacement.
  12. if you need to be replaced for any reason, you may message me with information to be passed on to the player who replaces you. this isn't mandatory, but if there's strategic advice you'd like to offer to whomever replaces you, you can do this.

    gameplay:
  13. living players may vote to lynch living players by writing vote: player or VOTE: player in the game thread. you may also vote for no lynch.
  14. once the majority of living players are voting to lynch a player, that player will die.
  15. if you have died, please do not post in the thread anymore. you are not officially considered dead until I announce your death in the game thread.
  16. I might implement a deadline for day phases. if so, I will announce how long the deadline is, and it will be included in votecounts for the rest of the day. if the deadline passes and no majority has been achieved, the day will end without a lynch.
  17. each night phase will last 48 hours, plus however much time it takes me to start the next day.
  18. a sample role PM for the town is included at the bottom of this post.

    moderator responsibilities:
  19. I will not edit your posts unless your post breaks the rules in such a way that information needs to be removed from it or quotes a post that does that, or you ask me to edit it to fix a broken tag. I will provide a brief explanation of the edit and, in cases of fixing broken tags, will end the post with a spoiler containing the complete original text of the post.
  20. if you have a pronoun listed on your account, I will use that to refer to you. otherwise, I will default to referring to you as "they"/"them". if you do not have a pronoun listed on your account but wish for me to refer to you using some other pronoun, message me to let me know.
  21. I will do my best to keep the game running as smoothly as possible, but there will be times when I'm not around. the frequency with which I update the game will be somewhat dependent on how the game is progressing, but I'll try to update the thread regularly.
  22. I reserve the right to modify these rules at any time if necessary.

    the most important, most fundamental rules of all:
  23. remember the Midnight Amendments:
    1. be cool.
    2. c’mon.
    3. nice.
  24. thanks for vibing and keeping it tight. if you need me, I'm on my mobile.


sample town role PMyou are a townie! you win once no members of opposing factions are alive.

as long as you are alive, during the day, you can vote and post in the game thread.

almost everyone has confirmed; PMs have been sent to those who have not yet.

light_ganski has not picked up her role PM yet and has not posted on site in several weeks; I've sent her a follow-up PM just in case she has email notifications turned on, but if she doesn't pick that up in the next few days, she'll be replaced.

I have prodded several people! also, I'm searching for a replacement for light_ganski, who has not posted yet!

I will post a votecount once I get home! I'm currently sitting in the third level food court at the mall sipping a milkshake from Five Guys Burgers and Fries, and I'm not gonna post a dang votecount from my telephone! you'll just have to deal with that! I'm waiting for my showing of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse to begin, so it'll be a hot minute before I get home, because that film is nearly two hours long, and it's not even time for the trailers to start yet! it's my fourth time seeing it!

July 3, 1995
11:56 PM
Echo Bay, Maryland
a ditch

"so this is what you wanted, then?"
"it's not about what I wanted. it's about the people extracting justice for your death."
"right, about that, you never actually explained how I'm still... here."
"after I killed you?"
"right. what am I... experiencing?"
"well, I suppose you must be a ghost."
"don't bullshit me. I don't know what you did, but I know you well enough to know you wouldn't accept that."
"your death was necessary, Roderick. that doesn't mean it was just."
"so you... what? you kept me here? how?"
"you'll come to understand the means by which you were preserved eventually. that's not relevant right now."
"it's relevant to me."
"fine, then. your consciousness is on a server farm in Colorado, 24 years from now."
"I don't know what that even means, but it sounds like a crock of shit."
"it's the truth. a group of very powerful computers is housing the full data of who you are on an emotional level."
"24 years in the future?"
"that's right."
"then how are we talking now? you're in the present still, right? I mean... back in 1994."
"it's 1995 now, actually. the night before Independence Day."
"and that's--"
"the one they've decided killed you. they left the body here to rot."
"but you killed me, what... six months ago? what now?"
"well, they've killed an innocent person now. what do you suppose happens when a large group of people get together and kill an innocent person?"
"...it doesn't end there."
"very good, you understand! it won't end here. there will be more death. probably as soon as tonight. this town knows the taste of blood now."
"you're insane."
"if I'm insane, then I'm wrong, but I'm not. you'll see."
"you didn't answer my question, by the way."
"of how we're talking to each other? that's... complicated."
"so you're not going to answer it."
"you don't need to know everything yet. all you need to know is that there will be more death, and then it'll end. we'll iterate on that until we have the data we need."
"that's all this is to you? data?"
"we're in the middle of a crucible, Roderick. who makes it through to the other side is the most essential data of all."


Leodanny has died, and was a town jailkeeper.

please submit any night actions you might have in the next 48 hours.

Jaylow7 has confirmed that he is back and will not be replaced. also, I'm going to Candlenights tomorrow, which means I'll be driving when night 2 is scheduled to end, and I'll be busy pretty much all day until it's the evening; don't expect the beginning of day 2 until late tomorrow evening.

it takes four days for the bodies to be found. a coroner reports that they died within a few hours of each other in the early hours of July 4, 1995. homicide. the kind that demands a closed casket funeral.

there is no time for a funeral in the eyes of the mob. there is only time for vengeance.


profii has died, and was a town non-consecutive jack of all trades.

CheekyTeeky has died, and was a town day-3 vigilante.

Xtoxm rescinded his replacement request and is no longer being replaced.

normally I would put a votecount here but, listen, I'm eating soup right now and then I have to go get my headlight replaced, so, like, there will be one after that

July 17, 1995
6:58 PM
Echo Bay, Maryland
WVOQ station headquarters

"and you're live in 10... 9... 8..."

Andi Mathers has been a newscaster at WVOQ for 13 years, but nothing that's ever happened here has prepared her for this. certainly, there's always been crime in Echo Bay, some of it violent, but the recent wave of death across the city has been more extreme and more frequent than anything that's ever happened here. for three years after she graduated college, she'd been a reporter in Charm City, nary an hour away, and she'd dealt with her fair share of death, but she came here looking for change, and this was what she faced instead. was this her future? was this just the way people were now?

"7... 6..."

the man counting down went silent. just hand signals now. the silence filled the whole room. a somber, hopeless feeling. she had grown complacent in this job; she sat behind a desk and read the news each night at 7 PM, and that was it. but tonight, things were different. she turned and looked at her co-host, who nodded somberly. tonight, her regular co-host was out. he was mourning the death of his sister. murdered by a violent, angry mob.

there would be more death. but what would make it end? that was impossible to say.

a producer slid a sheet of paper toward her. it informed her of a prison riot at Echo Bay Penitentiary following the murder of another prison employee. more bad news.


mastina has died, and was a town jailkeeper.

please submit any night actions you have in the next 48 hours.

the reporter hastens her speed to match his. he clearly wants to avoid this conversation, but she isn't going to allow that.
"Mayor, what do you have to say about the string of violent deaths that have struck the town in recent weeks?"
"I don't have anything to say. no comment."
"you don't think the office of the Mayor needs to comment on these brutal attacks? twice now a mob has killed innocent people. you don't care about that?"
"I said no comment."
"...off the record?"
she makes a big show of turning her voice recorder off. she's genuinely curious to hear what he has to say about the wave of death that has stuck his town. he stops and turns to her.
"...you want my opinion? off the record? fine. whole world's goin' to hell. things are just gonna keep getting worse. I'm here to keep the lights on."
"so you don't care?"
"who said I don't care? of course I care. I got this job because I was retiring. that doesn't mean I'm good at it. here's the thing, though: I don't think anyone is up for it. Dad certainly wasn't. people respected him enough to do what he said, but that doesn't mean he knew what folks should be doing."
"couldn't you gain the respect you need to stop this death if you ended this media silence?"
"...maybe."
"maybe? what does that mean?"
"I'll get back to you."

August 1, 1995
7:02 PM
Echo Bay, Maryland
City Hall

Mayor Markus Wilson, Jr. stares out at the crowd. these are his people. his citizens. his flock. he is their elected leader, yes, but tonight, he reassures himself, he will lead them to salvation. the faces of the people whose interests he's sworn to represent look scared, confused, upset. they want answers. they want an explanation. they want an end to all of this.

he is not here to give them an end, though; he is here to give them what they truly need: freedom from an end.

he sees the flash of a camera go off. under the lights of this auditorium, it's hardly noticeable, though. and right now, nothing will distract him from why he's here. he looks down at his briefcase. he looks at the gun at the top of the case. he told his security people he'd like to go in through a back entrance to avoid the attention of the media. the truth was, they'd just installed a metal detector at the front entrance. couldn't have it taken away from him before he finished sharing the truth he'd discovered.

the home of Dorothy Wilson

Dorothy Wilson stared at the woman in front of her. "so you're the woman he hired," she says.

"yes, I'm the executor of your late husband's estate. I'm sorry it took us so long to become acquainted."

"and yet... you're me."

"not entirely, no."

"then explain to me what you are."

"the short answer is that I'm a clone, but that's oversimplifying things. genetically, I'm identical to you, yes, but we have had very different lives."

"and my husband allowed you to... allowed you to exist? he had you made?"

"he did, yes. you're the only one he could trust to carry out his mission, but he knew you weren't long for this world."

"six months ago they said I had three months. who knows how long I'll have to live a year from now? and if we're identical, aren't you liable to die just the same way as me? how much did this cost him? how does this technology even exist?"

Dorothy -- the younger one -- laughs. even though she really has very little to do with the dying woman in the chair in front of her, she can't help but relate to her. to the fact that, faced with her own clone, she questions the logistics of whether human cloning makes financial sense before bothering to ask how it's even technologically feasible.

"that's all... complicated. we don't need to get into it right now."

"then tell me this, dear: why did you come to my home tonight?"

"part of your late husband's plans involved taking down one of his political rivals, and... she got her revenge."

"political rival? I don't know about any political rivals. he would've told me about this, right?"

"again, it's complicated. there are a lot of things happening, a lot of cause and effect. but some of the causes haven't happened yet."

"is this about Colorado?"

"you know about Colorado?"

"of course I know about Colorado. I'm not a fool. we're... we're not fools. what does all of this have to do with me, though?"

"it doesn't really have anything to do with you, I'm afraid. I just... have some bad news for you. your son... well, he's about to kill himself during a press conference."

Dorothy Wilson stares at Dorothy Carroll incredulously. "excuse me?"

"I tried to stop it, but, well, she got to him--"

"who got to him? why are you here talking to me instead of there stopping him?"

"the political rival I mentioned. and she's... well, she's way too powerful for me to touch right now. that wouldn't end well for anyone."

"well, who the fuck is she?"

"that's a complicated question."

"I want you to answer it."

Echo Bay, Maryland
Howell Hospital
room 308

a young woman gives birth to two surrogate children -- fraternal twins. Emma and Dorothy Carroll. the girls' father stands in the corner of the room. he seems completely uninterested in his children being born, instead focusing all his attention on a news broadcast on the television. at 7:15 on the dot, the man on the screen pulls a gun out of his briefcase and points it at his own head. the girls' father whispers to himself, "the only absolution is death," and the man on the television repeats those same words and pulls the trigger.

he pulls out the device the woman gave him a year ago. "the girls have been born, and the mayor guy is dead, just like you said. this means my boy gets to be the new mayor someday?"

Emma Carroll stares at a computer screen. "yes," she replies. "your boy Jonathan will be taken care of quite nicely." the message sends itself back 24 years into the past. she considers what would happen if she told the man to simply smother Dorothy right now. would she be written out of the timeline? would the timeline simply collapse? fun questions to consider, sure, but not ones worth her time. the important thing is she's sent a message to Markus.

now to take care of his son's clone.


Ausuka has died, and was a 1-shot bulletproof day 3+ jester. she therefore has won the game! wow. however, the game will continue, because technically she hasn't stopped anyone else from fulfilling their win condition. maybe I should've made her so that when she dies everyone else dies too or something, but I didn't do that, now did I?

anyway, night 3 actions blah blah blah 48 hours c'mon c'mon c'mon. I will be 6 hours deep into Kingdom Hearts 3 when night 3 ends, so will I actually remember to start day 4 before I go to sleep? we'll just have to see!

"that doesn't mean you had to kill me. there are plenty of other ways you could've made sure your birth succeeded."
"trust me, Roderick, I've run billions of simulations of the last couple months. this was the only way."
"I really would've fucked it up that bad?"
"you really would have, yes."
"so what happens now?"
"we wait it out. Emma thinks that she can't risk changing the timeline, and that's our biggest advantage, because we know we can, but we also need to avoid revealing that too early. we've already lost this round, so there's really no reason for us to try to change any of this. ultimately, she still has all the advantage here."
"what advantage does she have? like if time travel is a thing, why don't we just... do that?"
"we both have access to time travel, yes, but of completely different kinds. keep in mind that the computer your consciousness exists on, for instance, exists in the future. the data is being transmitted through time to a much more primitive computer here in the past, but the computer itself -- your actual consciousness -- is back here. she's the one who has the technology needed to send actual physical material through time."
"wait, so, does that mean... did she send you back? is that how you're here?"
"yes, exactly. thirteen years from now, I'll be sent back to the 80s. then, at 21, I get hired by Markus, Sr., and... that's how we end up here."
"I guess that all... kind of makes sense, actually. do you think you can stop her, though? it seems like she pretty much completely has the upper hand here, and... do we even know for sure what she wants?"
"what she wants is to stop the sequences from successfully going through. she just has to prevent one of them from succeeding and then she's blown the whole thing."
"and we're behind on resources, behind on information, and decades in the past. how are we supposed to stop her?"
"hey, I'm pretty clever, Roderick. after all... I wasn't born yesterday."

a shed

the death of the mayor changed everything. it brought new perspective to a people who were scared, upset, confused. it gave people a moment to pause and reflect on what had happened so far.

what it didn't do is change anything.

Markus Wilson, Sr., had long theorized that it was human nature to destroy, because humans seek to end the hierarchies that bind them. kill an authority figure, and suddenly you're in charge. he thought that by eliminating those hierarchies, we might eliminate death itself, and he left Dorothy to this task through a program he called the sequences. give people the ability to freely end life, and people will sort themselves out in a way that isn't normally possible.

before the sequences could begin, though, she had to demonstrate to the people why they were necessary. one death spirals into another, into another, into another, until eventually everything settles, and some people are left alive, but the hierarchies themselves remain untouched. and so she had started this campaign of murder with Roderick Howell, the chairman of Howell Hospital, a position he earned only through nepotism -- a well respected man in the community. the fact that his death was a necessary consequence for her own life played a role in this, but more than anything, this was about the sequences.

after a month had passed, people started to think things might be okay again. but that complacency created the necessary conditions for everything to start once again. this was inevitable.

the body, found rotting in a shed eleven days later, proved otherwise. at some point, a mob had come together to dispatch another life. the cycle continued.

for a brief moment, Dorothy had considered the possiblity that things might be okay. maybe all the incredible circumstances that had brought her into existence at this specific point in time weren't necessary, and she could rest easy. it was clear to her now, though, that things were only going to get worse before they got better.

she'd need to get her hands dirty.

Emma stares at the monitor in front of her, unblinking. there's a portion of the screen that she can't see. it's not that it's obstructed in some way -- the information she's trying to view simply doesn't exist yet. this has never happened before.

that's odd.

"what are you doing?"

"I'm solving the problem directly. the problem is that they're going to think this means they're winning. if you locate the killers and strike them down, that doesn't make the problem go away. there's always more killers. the fundamental problem hasn't actually been solved; people are still going to keep dying unnecessarily. sure, a few dangerous people have died, but that doesn't mean everything is fine now -- it means that everything is just going to get worse. this is what I've been talking about this whole time. this is what all my work has been about. our enemies aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. I can't be afraid either."

"that's... not what I was asking."

"what were you asking, then?"

"I meant, like... why are you packing your things? are we leaving?"

"yes, that's exactly what I said."

"that's not what you said at all."

"it's what I meant."

"so where are we headed?"

"into the eye of the storm."

"you're absolutely fucking useless to talk to, you know that?"

"how many more people have to die before this is over?"

"no one else has to die. there is a peaceful resolution to this, and just because we haven't found it yet doesn't mean it's not there. nobody has to die."

"that's hardly reassuring."

"listen, the past few months have been hard on all of us. filling Mayor Wilson's shoes has been a challenging task for me, but I've stepped up to do what needed to be done. that's how we'll end this -- with everybody doing what they need to do to complete the task at hand."

"so what do you expect the citizens of Echo Bay to do? what guidance would you offer them?"

"well, for one, don't go around enacting vigilante justice just because you think you know better than everyone else who deserves to live and die. people have focused a lot on the murders happening in secret around the city, but there have been plenty of people who've died just because some idiots decided to take it upon themselves."

"so that's it, then? just stop being part of violent mobs? what would you have the people tell their children? what reassurance can you offer them?"

"no more questions tonight, thank you."

the mayor steps away from the podium. he's been doing everything he can to try to improve things around here, and these ungrateful people just can't understand the task he's dealing with. he wipes his brow, which is drenched in sweat.

suddenly, gunfire. an automatic weapon from somewhere in the auditorium. another mayor dead.

"what you're suggesting is seriously illegal."

"yes, but it's a solution to our problems. this city's leadership is a mess. we need to fix it, even if that means getting our hands dirty."

"what's the point of letting the city continue to exist if it's at the expense of the end of democracy?"

"oh, don't be so dramatic. there isn't a single governed official in the world who isn't bought by someone. at least we'll be able to run things independently."

"the fact that there's corporate money in politics doesn't invalidate the offices of elected officials."

"turn on the news, Sheldon."

a worried expression forms on Sheldon's face as he turns on the television.

"--was found early this morning. at this point in time, it's unclear who will take over as interim mayor, or what funeral arrangements will be made for--"

he turns it off just as quickly as he turned it on.

"elections don't have a goddamn thing to do with who runs this town. the only people who have a say in that matter are the ones holding the guns. we're changing that."


vonflare has died, and was a werewolf.

Kokichi Oma has died, and was a town day 3 vigilante.

December 1, 1995
6:56 PM
Echo Bay, Maryland
the city square

snow flutters through the air -- the first snow of winter. for just one night, everything seems bright and cheerful and alive. everyone forgets that this has been a year marked by death and suffering. this is a day when nothing can go wrong.

that is when the gunmen enter the scene. it's not that people were wrong to have hope; it was just wrong of them to believe that hope could last.

shots are fired. bodies fall to the ground. they're so brazen about it now; they don't even bother hiding their faces. Dorothy sits on a nearby park bench, barely looking up from her newspaper. there are still dozens of people here, so practically speaking, the woman not making any commotion is unlikely to even be noticed, but even if things do go wrong, she's no longer afraid to die.

she wonders if her other self is afraid to die. they haven't talked since that night her son died. it's not that she's not interested in the goings on of her genetically identical progenitor -- who wouldn't be interested to know that sort of thing? -- it's just that she's been so busy with other preparations. she's realized what she has to do. this mission is more important than her.

police quickly arrive on the scene. one of them is shot, but they convince the gunmen to put down their weapons. they're taken into custody, and the brutality ends. but they've won, right? they've convinced the people that they are unable to protect themselves. the powers that be will inevitably prevent the people from actually representing their own best interests. they're talking of holding a special election next month to choose a new mayor. that won't solve anything.

"this is the plan: on December 18th, the 1-year anniversary of Markus Wilson, Sr.'s death, we begin inducting people into the first sequence. two at a time, in a random order, over the course of two weeks, for a total of 28 people. things will actually start on January 1st. I don't anticipate it taking that long for the dust to settle after that."

"there's a twist here, though, right? there's something you haven't revealed. so tell me, Dorothy."

"I will be part of the first sequence. I am one of the 28."

there's a silence for several moments. finally, voice from the computer responds.

"so you're prepared to die for this cause, then."

"I am. I have a contingency in place so that I can continue the sequences if I die, but yes, Roderick. I will be putting my life on the line. how can I possibly hope the ideology for which I stand triumphs if I'm not willing to do this?"

"so what are we doing for the next two weeks, then?"

"we're waiting for a package to arrive. have you heard of a company called Future Core Neural Designs?"

"I can't say that I have."

"well, 23 years and a few months from now, they're hopefully going to finish work on a very important project. at some point in time, Emma will take partial control of the company. she'll think this means she's won, but... we'll just have to wait and see how things take shape."

the basement of city hall

"all in favor say aye."

all eight of them respond with "aye."

with that, the city council of Echo Bay has formed. technically, Echo Bay already had a city council, but this new one will operate in the shadows. they will control the elections and will wield all the power.

all eight of them will be part of sequence one. this is by design.


light_ganski has died, and was a vanilla townie.

TheBrie, informed non-consecutive night bulletproof day 3 vigilante serial killer, has been endgamed.

Nancy Drew 39, town neighbor, has been endgamed.

the mafia (Enter, singletonking, Dannflor, Purrcocet, and the worst) and the jester, Ausuka, have won.

me, eight months ago, in a different game:

In post 2011, xyzzy wrote:also you can expect "Future Core Neural Designs Mafia" to come to a mini theme queue near you sometime, uh, in the future! it will continue the ongoing story that this game is part of, so if you enjoyed my extensive lore, there will probably be some of that there. you probably noticed some SHOCKING REVELATIONS throughout day 3 and the end of the game if you were following the lore for this game, with multiple twists and shocking surprises

I will release private topics soon! it's a lot of work though so gimme a minute

listen: It's Coming Soon™

btw for anyone who doesn't feel like reading the whole dead thread:

In post 21, xyzzy wrote:something I've been thinking about is how there's a lot of posts in this game that suggest that certain things might be true about the setup due to mod meta (like, sure, the fact that there are multiple third parties is very much something I've done before), but I feel like this will be the game that people point to in the future to try to establish my mod meta. like the premise of having an all-town neighborhood, 4 day-3 vigilantes, 2 roleblockers *and* 2 jailkeepers when the mafia can just always get kills through with an ascetic, a death miller, AND a jester in one setup where the central gimmick announced during signups wasn't even setup weirdness is the kind of thing where from now on nothing will be too weird to actually appear in a game I moderate. I'm basically poisoning the well w/r/t ever having anyone believe that I've made a simple, normal setup lmao

just so you all know, if you're interested in playing another game moderated by me, I have a 17-player large theme game in signups right now! it wasn't designed by me (there's an explanation of that in the opening post) and is guaranteed to be single ball with no third parties, but I think you'll have a good time even without a jester!
