Because the mod is an unknown quantity and we're used to more traditional roles. I doubt that your guess would be as effective as usual.
Oh, I thought that it was because I have had a little bit of success at guessing the setup in the past, and perhaps you didn’t want it out there because you had something to hide. Good to hear I was wrong in my assumption. [/sarcasm]

I put my setup spec in Gojoe. If applicable, you may apologize to me after the game.

And it’s Saturday. Humans usually sleep in if they can keep the dog alarm from going off. . .

Well alright, are we done here?

bessie's theory on why wam is a bad guy:

1. Mafia guesses that somitomi is a vig from this post, and that he is fishing for advice on how to use his shot.
2. bessie suggests even players target wam, odd players target Mark.
3. The suggestion gains some support.
4. somitomi doubles down here and lets it slip he knows evens have a shot.
5. Scaramanga panics and uses a strongman day shot on somitomi to keep somitomi from shooting him on N3.
6. somitomi is even therefore wam is Scaramanga.
7. Additional data – wam will probably be jailed tonight so if he’s going to shoot he needs to do it now.

Nine hours to go, and we seem to be defaulting to a no jail vote toDay. I'm assuming this is because we are tacitly accepting Sabrar's plan of a shootout party at bessie's.

Ninja'd by bessie with at least some progress.

I’m just going to eliminate the first person I see at my safehouse so Scaramanga will probably send Andrea Anders in first. Then the rest of you can loot my place.

The lurking has made this an extremely challenging game. There has been very little sharing of results, but a lot of sharing of “no results” which is quite suspicious. I know some of you are withholding, just on the basis of my own results, and from the changes in my inventory every night.

There is very little interest in trying to figure out this game, compared to a usual game. Makes me think all of you have something to hide.

So what’s the plan? Everyone show up at my place and kill someone? Anyone left alive steal something?

If I’m not here D4, those alive should ask when and how this plan came about. Sabrar first suggested a shoot out at his house here but in the same post said he wasn’t serious. But as the day progressed, the idea gained traction, and somehow moved from Sabrar’s house to my house. I wonder if this post had anything to do with it.

Ninja’d by Mark while I was typing this up. I’m eliminating the first person through the door. Everyone else is free to do as they wish. If you want to jail wam, you can still vote to do so. If you don’t jail wam, you probably have a better chance at survival.

Everyone please at least submit your night actions promptly and maybe we can speed this up. It’s a long way to Day 007.

The sun begins to set over Bangkok, on what promises to be a bloody night. With civil discussion having broken down into accusations and threats, the intelligence community seems set to ignite a powderkeg of violence. For those not completely distracted double checking their equipment, a small classified ad draws some attention; "M4I MBA NSA BBQ PnP NSc garden party 42". The rest head out into the streets and wish they had more vacation days saved up, or at least a chauffeur.

It is now Evening 003. Submit your travel/pursuit/evade orders.

Traffic in downtown Bangkok is always bad around rush hour, but tonight saw a record breaking tangle when two blocks of main street were enveloped in a thick cloud of smoke. Collisions left the street blocked for hours as tow trucks worked to clear the mess.

It is now Night. Post your night actions.

Morning dawns to continuing coverage of fire and explosions at the university downtown. Initial reports suggest there may have been a gas leak in a kitchen which detonated and spread fire to the nearby dorms and a chemistry lab, forcing the evacuation of hundreds of students. Fire crews have the blaze under control, but are urging locals to stay away until the structures can be inspected and either deemed safe or condemned.

It is now Day 004.

I was at bessie's. Only saw wam, moody and plytho (plytho was just 'passing by'). Tried to shoot wam, flavor suggests I hit him (evidently wasn't fatal). wam tried to shoot me, he was unsuccessful.

This is getting ridiculous. We need to start jailing people, otherwise there seems to be no progress.

I didn't really go to a different place. I ran out of ap after I followed Wam to bessie's. That apparently translates into passing by.

Mass jail sounds better than...I don't know, nothing? I don't really understand this game at all, it's not really mafia as far as I can tell, because there's almost nothing during the day we do that has any impact (as far as I can see)

I visited somitomi's safehouse, and saw Mark_Cangila there, looting the place. I saw that somitomi was Sheriff John W. Pepper from Louisiana.

No clue, though there was an explosion at bessie's as well before the shooting started.
Also wam has a submachine gun, not a pistol.

At this rate the game is going to last another month or two at least.
I don't have a clue about the mechanics involved. I have so far twice used the 'snoop for clues' action without any result whatsoever.
So we can't lynch, we can't Cop, we don't seem to have a large number of Vig-s, everyone is bulletproof...
Seriously no idea how to proceed.
Let's just jail everyone and their dogs too.

Yep I got told about the explosion as well.

Also realised something odd. We were finding Mark suspicious for assuming mafia did the kill. Given it's called the mafia with the golden gun it's a logical assumption but as he didn't mention this its odd.

I also agree with sabrar about the people who didn't go to Bessie.

That group does include Mark. I find it hopeful that freezeblade actually got something when he did a snoop, so we do have a way forward.

Direct cop results won't be given in response to snooping. You are meant to figure things out by the items you find and the things people have done with them.

This just in; rescuers were led to a collapsed part of the building by a ringing phone. Unfortunately, the owner of the phone was found dead at the scene. Our condolences go out to the friends and family trying to contact Bessie. The body was in poor condition; viewer discretion is advised.

Wam did not evade. It turns out I had even less ap than I thought. When I said I was expecting more I was talking about nk's from shootouts.

@moody: were you aware of the explosion? (I wasn't.)

So Freezeblade and Mark were at somitomi's.
Wam, Sabrar, moody and me were at bessie's, as was bessie.

The explosion happened before the shooting, so bessie blew herself up? Someone used a time-bomb?

@wam: why did you take the pressure plates?

RIP bessie :cry:

With 6 players 4 votes should be enough for jail. Let's get freezeblade next with all 4 active players. After that we jail wam (the townie from {Mark, freezeblade} can use their phone-call to secure the jail if wam is scum).
The 3 remaining players investigate the 3 jailed player's safehouses and we repeat the process tomorrow if necessary.

Unvote
Vote: freezeblade

Nope, just math, assuming 2 scum overall. So if wam is scum (and therefore needs to be jailed) then there must be a townie in {Mark, freezeblade}.

You can jail me if you like, I really don't think it does anything, and could be a red herring that we as town need to discount, and do things in the cover of night, like a spy movie/novel.

I didn't go to besse's because I disagreed with having last night be "the shootout at besse's"

I did actually try to follow besse last night as my first action, but apparently I was "unable to spot her on the streets"

My secondary action was to go to somitomi's, on a hunch that we need to visit safehouses in lieu of flips (as we have seen no flips so far, and safehouses seem to be important).

BTW jailing 3 people works as if there's an NK then it will be obvious that 1 scum was left out. Jailing 4 people works even better.
Unfortunately if we can't lynch them (as in a usual game) then it might not mean anything.
