Re: Wheel of Time 3 - A Divided Sisterhood (D3)

I think cult/mafia is unlikely in a game this small. I do see a possibility of a second faction from flavor though.

Re: Wheel of Time 3 - A Divided Sisterhood (D3)

I have a town result on LaserGuy. Aw, thanks :) I'm the 2nd member of wam's faction, and I'm a rolecop, not a cop (good on everyone who guessed that correctly). I've been trying to work out how the hell this game is balanced, seeing as we only had 2 members vs a ton of town PRs. I think that there'...

Re: Libertarianism

Building apartments doesn't really help with escaping from rent though because apartments are inherently rental housing. Yeah, you can "own" a condo which is basically an apartment, but not without paying HOA fees which are basically the same as rent inasmuch as you get kicked out of your...

Re: Libertarianism

Thing is you're comparing medians to medians, and yeah if I could afford to pay median rental prices I could also afford to buy because both are ridiculously huge. What matters is the low end, and there simply is not housing available for purchase at prices comparable to the low end of rent, so the...

Re: Libertarianism

Because, at least in the housing options I’ve looked at, the amount you pay towards principal is basically just what you would have otherwise been saving while renting, so mortgaging doesn’t amount to anything different than renting while saving until you can afford to buy outright in cash. This de...

Protecting me N1 doesn't make sense. I wasn't a likely NK target and wasn't a strong townread for wam; blocking me N1 doesn't make sense either for Town!wam because he wasn't scumreading me either.

If Sabrar is Town, he is vanilla at this point and is unlikely to be NKed. If he is mafia, he isn't being NKed unless he gets vigged for some reason.
