Re: Dune D1: Don't be shocked by the tone of my voice

Well, that didn't work. My apathy has stemmed from many sources, not just my lack of flavor knowledge, but also because I seriously messed my role up.

Since I'm about to get lynched, I have a choice to make. I can keep my mouth shut and eat this lynch, and hope my win conditions are met for me by others, or I can be Lataro, and make everyone hate me by lowering the chance for my first win condition occurring, and working to ensure my second win condition.

To my pals: I'm sure you all suspected the crap out of me when I botched false claiming my second win condition. I wasn't paying attention close enough and offered in hindsight a super obvious lie.

So, onward to being a bastard and shooting my pals in the back for a chance at my second win condition.

Screw you brother cycoden (Feyd-Rautha)! I will prevent you becoming the emperor with my dying breath! Ya'll should really lynch him after my death.

Now, I could go and give away another whom I believe to be trying to boost my brother up to the throne, but I'll let them live for now, since they may yet get me my first win if they live.

In case it isn't clear to anyone, I am totally a Harkonnen and cycoden is as well.

So who all saw that post coming? :twisted:

It would be a lot nicer to not have players who don't care and can't really be bothered to play to win.


It's more of I tend to get lost in big games, and they seem to have a lot of noise in them, and my first exp with them was discmafia where D1 lasted nearly three weeks and N1 lasted well over one week. This is why I generally prefer minis and turbos, as that tends to alleviate the problem. Right now as lost as I am flavor-wise, and as flavor dependent this game is (it's not simply window dressing, it's pretty in-depth), and with this many people in it, I'm not going to read though every single post and reflect on it for each person. I'm going to find a couple people that jump out at me at latch on. When the game gets more managable, though fewer players alive and more mechanics revealed, if I'm alive I could get more into it, for now though, I'm playing very shallowly.

I'd like to win, that is not the issue, I am not going to pour myself into a game though that I don't understand and am pry going to die before I get a handle on it though.

Re: Dune D1: Don't be shocked by the tone of my voice

So, mister k thinks bignose is scummy mcscumpants, then votes me because I'm being lazy, from his perspective. Right. :?:

As to my actions, I really don't see what the big surprise here is. I generally dislike large games for a variety of reasons, and when I don't know the flavor, that dislike gets intensified. The only reason I'm in this game is someone else signed me up (like how I signed Aardvarki up for traitor mafia :twisted: ) and when asked by the mod if I'd play I when the game was otherwise full, I didn't wanna feel like a jerk by saying no after it was in sign ups for so long.

To sum it up, my interest level isn't high in this game, due entirely to it being a large (which I hate in general, I only joined Buffy after the mods made promises to me) and I don't know the flavor, where it appears to be incredibly flavor dependent. I don't even really understand my own role.

If you want to lynch me for that, go ahead and let the bandwagon roll, sorry I'm not more interested in commenting on role spec. If you don't like my vote on BN then tough, I find such lists a great way to active lurk. However, his post immediately following mine made me feel extra warm and tingly. Nice play there BN, making sure to slip it in to people's minds that Bignose=helpful=can't be scum.

Re: Dune D1: Don't be shocked by the tone of my voice

As I said before, I know less than nothing about the flavor, and thus far, the majority of the game has been on "that's scummy flavor spec!" rather than actual scummy stuff.

Thank you BigNose.

For your ever popular scum post of how many posts each player has made. It's a great way to look helpful while at the same time saying pretty much nothing of consequence. Doubly so when the mod seems to be dealing with lurkers already.

Re: Dune D1: Don't be shocked by the tone of my voice

Since I don't really know any flavor here, I'll provide a different kind of content.

Vote: Mavketl

You know why. :twisted:

Anyway, discussion seems to be brewing down to suggest that this is kinda like death note, with a ton of factions and stuff. It's not my favorite cup of tea, but it should be interesting.

Re: Dune D1: Don't be shocked by the tone of my voice

checking in and saying that I know absolutely nothing at all about the flavor. I blame the person who signed me up for this game.
