@Vicarin, if there's a mislynch tonight, I could see scum killing each other, although I agree it's relatively unlikely in that case for various reasons that I will go through when I have more time (LG doesn't know SK still exists, MC cannot kill both tonight and tomorrow, and killing LG makes risks town locking onto MC on the last day etc etc).

So, I usually don't put these posts out, but it is really an interesting situation. I have basically solved the game. I know I'm the SK and LG is mafia. I was an underdog and now I'm an sk. I'm hoping to lynch any town, with MoA being my main target. If I lynch them I'll kill LG and hope LG manages to kill a town. Actually.... a moody lynch might be nice. The only RBer left. I just hope LG kills moody if moody is alive and moody doesn't protect LG.

bessie continuing to derail MoA's perfectly amazing plan :(.

Actually, Mark and LaserGuy should both be almost completely sure that there's exactly 1 other scum, with it either being the other person, or a really outside chance of moody. This does make it rather likely that they'll take care of each other tonight...

Spoiler:
Mark believes LaserGuy is scum, but LaaerGuy only thinks Mark is indie, which means he might not shoot him, expecting there to be one more day. Both need a town lynch or they're in trouble, as either flipping non town essentially confirms the other. If Mark had claimed indie earlier in the Day, he might have been able to survive that, playing the Godfather + LaserGuy card, but he'd still have to come up with a convincing claim.

So LaserGuy kills moody and scum wins by getting MOA mislynched.
Hopefully bessie will have second thoughts after seeing Mark's flip (MOA being GF doesn't explain moody's second result).

As things stand, LaserGuy is killing moody, who is protecting bessie, and being checked by MoA, who is also giving coal to LaserGuy, so MoA will know pretty definitively that LaserGuy is scum, and Mark and moody's flips should give the remaining information to confirm LaserGuy as scum to bessie, so I don't give him much chance.

By the way D5 will be the last day, assuming nothing changes, in case the next mod wants to start sign ups.

Yeah, moody's results being confirmed correct plus Mark's flip will explain all of the issues bessie was having (as it will show the swap targets part of mpolo's power) and will only make sense if MoA is town, so I think there's basically no way in hell LaserGuy can talk his way out of this.

Soooo, is anyone talking about me?

Sir Sabrar appeared to be wearing a strange vest of somekind. It seemed to be missing something on one side, as evidenced by the fact that there were several black orbs tied to the other.

His Royal Modness won’t tell me if I’m in possession of any of the missing black orbs. Perhaps they’re with my faithful hunting hound. Hoku has at least a dozen tennis balls hidden all over the yard. Probably more. They're his favorite toys.

C’mon scum pick me me me. . .

I've got the role cards mostly done with some fill-in-the-blanks, although the final distribution of gadgets will have to wait for the player list to be known.
I'm wondering if the size descriptions have drifted to match the player base. Is a Medium/Large as in The Body actually possible, or does that mean 12ish?
I've got 9 unique roles sketched up, with room for filler, and that doesn't sound small anymore.

I doubt LaserGuy is going to stand a chance today. I don't think he can plausibly play the "I am town card, so one of you is scum", unless he can come up with a good reason that renders both moody's and mpolo's results invalid, probably due to hidden mechanics in moody's ability and/or simultaneously somehow driving a Godfather theory.

Another possible crazy idea is for him to claim some sort of exotic indie (or possibly something more mundane, like survivor, but that's boring), specifically some kind of Kingmaker role: he has to engineer a 1v1 situation, with him as the third player and has to be the hammer vote against one of them to win. This still requires a Godfather push, but I don't see any alternative.

Methinks LaserGuy isn't trying his absolute hardest to come up with a theory, but who can blame him? :P

I doubt anyone would buy a 7-2-1-1-1 setup, so that's not really on the table.

I'd forgotten moody got his ability switched so there's no flip of the secret mechanics, buuuuut I doubt bessie is paranoid enough to go against the absolute mountain of evidence against LaserGuy now.

Well, no surprises there. I can't say I exactly put in the effort that last day :P Anyway, game was basically over as soon as moody claimed on D2... we were just going through the motions beyond that.

For the record, I was serious about mass claim being viable and would have proposed it as Town. As it turns out, with 2 super cops, 2 docs, and an inventor who can make unlimited bulletproof vests, mass claim would have broken this setup almost immediately.

Your last point is funny because I had a similar thought about the coal. I figured that someone who was rooting for mpolo in the B99 game submitted a similar role.

Golden Gun signups are open now.

In case you're wondering, the sample role is not actually in the game, but has the same structure.
I do not plan to have any exact duplicate or vanilla roles, although there will naturally be some similar ones on the MI6 side.

I am still open to new gadget and gadget-modifier idea submissions, but may not be able to work them in to the game at this point.

I still have the emergency fallback of reversing the polarity by moving the plot to the hidden island base. That way 007 and a Meatshield are infiltrating Wam's Mafia team.

Note: Actual role assignments will be done via physical dice rolls since I have a small bucket of them handy.


Hmm.
-Wam is openly known to be the Evil Genius (vig), and chooses to shoot a minion each day until morale improves?
-007 and MI6 ally shoot minion(s) each day.
-All the minions are doctors; Wam can order N+1 of them to doctor himself to ensure at least one is not an MI6 agent and will actually doctor!
-All win conditions are based on specifically Wam's survival or elimination.
-Wam (and every minion) loses as soon as the number of MI6 agents exceeds the number of loyal minions, due to lead poisoning.

That could work!

I’m still thinking about it. I’m trying to schedule around the nervous breakdown I have every year while I’m preparing for the annual certification audit. I don’t want to be in the position I was in during Stellaris and have to drop out. (But what are the odds of being scum with wam and freezeblade again anyway?? :shock: )

SuicideJunkie, I’m in if you need me for the game to run, but I need to think about it otherwise.

The role roll is completed, aside from one special assignment.
Loot rolls are done, and I'm updating the descriptions now to fit the winners.
