Wait, if this is based on Zen's ego, shouldn't it be a large game?

lololololol

Re: The Seven Deadly Zens Mafia - D1 Begins!

Postby wam » Tue Apr 17, 2018 3:28 pm UTC

So I have a few questions for other players?

1) do we claim our parity numbers.

2) what powers do we think are out there.

3) setup speculation

My answers

1) no it gives scum useful information

2) will have a think and come back to this

3) 5 -2 is the only one that makes sense.

I think for the sake of clarity I need to claim: I have a posting restriction however giving any more information about it will help scum.

Ok I’ve played with everyone in this game before, so you all know that I don’t play at work (9-6ish PDT, I should be there now but I'm running late). Some quick responses to wam’s questions before I leave.
1) No, at least not yet.
2) Still thinking about it, and about the game mechanics.
3) Agree with 5-2.

I do not have a posting restriction.

1) no. And we should absolutely never claim or speculate someone's parity number

2) no clue

3) based on number of playets alone 5-2. But due to P7, could be an indy. Or maybe just 1 mafia (less likely).


Partial claiming, one of my roles (not claiming if positive or negative) is passive such that any time I am investigated, I appear as anti-zen. Really both my roles are on the weak end of the zen spectrum.

How do you feel that answering these questions is in any way beneficial to Town, especially when you have already seeded the answers that you expect to get back?

Is starting with questions not a common thing anymore?

I phrased that badly, I think the answers to question 2&3 are things we would get anwya. 1 was the interesting one but after the answers so far scum (if they haven#t posted yet) would have to be stupid to answer differently. So its now not beneficial

Not usually, no, especially in closed setups. But it's not so much that you were asking questions in general that I'm focusing on, but rather the specific questions that you chose to ask. There is a lot of interesting stuff in those setup posts that you could have asked about that may have both been helpful to Town and created discussion.

Why do you think 5-2 is more likely than 6-1?

1. Absolutely not
2. Don't believe this should be answered
3. p7 might very well be an independent, there's only talk of negative/positive states, so I'm not sure how a balanced state (which is how I interpret the =) would play into that. Either means they count as both or that it's a unique state to them and would count against the mafia's win condition.

5-2 is the only one that makes real sense, however. 4-2-1 would hurt the town quite a bit and 5-1-1 would make the mafia's job almost impossible.

We can assume they're not on the same tier, as that'd make their win condition impossible. So, if a mafia is p2, than p1 is probably cleared. I don't think we can make assumptions about if they're both the same charge already, or if they're oppositely charged.

This seems way too jumpy to me. I'd vote but with only 4 to lynch I don't want to add to it. Laserguy's response to Wam was normal, Wam voting back seemed forced and panicky.

Oh hey look all the action happens after I get to sleep again. And this game is neither open setup nor flavour that I know. Oh well.

Answers to wam's questions:

1. Almost certainly a bad idea early, don't want to give the scum too many ideas about precisely who to target. However, if we're 3-1 with 3 + and 1 -, then if the -ve gets lynched without anyone shifting beforehand, we lose. Even if that person we lynch is the last scum, according the mafia win condition in the first post! Makes claiming positions necessary later on.

2. Pff, who knows, all those example pregame roles are kind of crazy. Beyond the obviousness of there being state-switching abilities, h_a's claim makes a cop really likely. Beyond that, most things seem fair game.

3. 5-2 and 4-2-1 are the only ones that really make sense, anything with a faction of 1 mafia seems like it would be stupidly swingy based on the first lynch.

I don't think that the questions are too terribly rolefishy, or maybe I just have a distorted PoV (cough Stellaris cough).

Asked about P7, and they're apparently not - and not +. What they can do with that is a mystery.

Are abilities used during the day processed before or after the lynch?

Also, I object to being used as an example of a killing role in the action resolution order :D

I wonder of P7 had to be dead for mafia to win, assuming in this case P7 is not mafia. I agree with maven, that mafia partners can't be on the same tier as each other. But to win they must kill the 2 players on the same tier as them and one olplayer from the other tier. I wouldn't be surprised if mafia have some ability to switch between positive and negative.

Interesting, so #2 and #3 were conversation starters as you claimed, but #1 was the question you really wanted answered, hidden among the other two.

Yes, but someone needs to get the discussion started. We can't all sit around waiting for someone else to post first, or there’s no content to generate reads.

My confidence in everything I say is what attracts all the ladies to me. Also I could not forsee or think of any circumstance that benefits town in knowing parity numbers, while it benefits mafia immensly to know, even more so D3.

@h_a: do you think that it's worthwhile to claim parity positions in the situation I outlined in my first post?

@wam: I'm pretty sure Maven wants your reasoning for that statement.

I'd like some more stuff out of somitomi as his answers to wam's questions were a whole lot of nothing.

Pretty keen to lynch any lurkers in this seeing as there's no modprods or inactivity replacements and we'll probably only get 1 lynch before LYLO so we need lots of info immediately.

To that end,

Two reasons 1) a solitary person with a kill is not mafia they are a sk. 2) a game that can end day 1 is not a sensible game.
