great movie

so in all seriousness i think i'm going with a no lynch for the day. it's been a bit of a mess and while i don't like wasting a day it's probably better for us to get the investigator machine rolling before doing anything we might regret.

While the day 1 no lynch is dreaded for good reason I am going to join the No lynch train as well. Because of the mid-day addition and the confusion that followed, going for either HPD or Treed would be just a whim based on their reputations, since we have very few serious posts today. Everybody's main concern seems to be speculation about what gimmick Sven has pulled..

Or can we get a move on for the last 48 hours?

So on further inspection

I realized the reason Stern hasn't talked much is because he was *just added to the game*

So I admit my mistake and retract my vote for the No Lynch train.

lynch Treed

Sorry darlin', but if one of us two has a mafia role and I'm town, it means you're mafia... or Sven's trolling. Wouldn't put it past him, but hey.

i'm about as ok with this as i am with a no lynch but it didn't seem to be getting much traction

In case anyone wants to know, I'm sticking to my guns.

Lynching Treed is the closest I have to a concrete clue. The inactives will wait because it's always 50/50 with them.

If Sven didn't randomise, I doubt he went for a simplistic route of adding just one mafia and townie, it would be rather transparent. I'm not buying lynching Treed on this assumption alone. Your word that you're the innocent is also somewhat shady, but I'll go along with it for now, since if you're a mafia framing Treed, you would probably be dead next. You two are good candidates to investigate though.

As I said, we lost 1 player and gained 2, meaning there was only 1 role added. It could have been town or mafia without changing the balance TOO much. The other role could be anything.

So yeah, lynching Treed under the assumption that there was 1 mafia and 1 town added is a bad idea.

I voted no lynch earlier, but it's mid-sentence.

We're on the way to a no lynch, but Treed hasn't done much after his joke lynch of HPD(or is it?), which was in the mid of a pile of jokes in hindsight.
Could our dearing hero talk some more before nightfall? And somebody go poke Diesel, he's a newbie at this so he might have forgotten to check.

I've yet to see any lynch reasoning that I'm happy to act on - we have very little information to operate with and simple odds dictate that we're more likely to hit a civilian than one of the mafia. The late-addition lynch targets are just being fueled by paranoia and I'll not give them any credence. The "lynch the inactives" policy is a bit better (if only because silence is a pretty effective mafia tactic), but still feels a bit precipitous.

What's our vote deadline (and is lynching decided by majority or just plurality?)

Those in doubt on who to lynch, please read Mafia 28.

I always suspect Gentleman of Dread because he is by far the most masterful mafia player of WWN. Like, even if you guys don't want to kill him, I certainly will inspect him.

(cause I claimed cop before the game started remember)

looking like a good lynch = being a good lynch

as the whole point of the game is that we don't know, we can only take guesses ( unless we get lucky with investigator)

that said i don't think scraggy is a good lynch in this game yet, tbqh

While I disagree on the first point (heck the goal of the mafia is to goad the town into thinking this), the rest is true.

We can't really say too much until the night phase is over, though.

for the players in the game, a good lynch is the one that seems to have the most chance of success. so if something looks like it's a good idea when you examine it from as many angles as possible, it IS a good idea. even if it turns out the guy is mafia, that doesn't change that it was a good idea. in other words, when determining how good a lynch is, whether they ACTUALLY are mafia or town is besides the point, it's whether there was decent reasoning behind the lynch or not.

(therefore, the goal of the mafia isn't to get the town to think that looking like a good lynch = a good lynch, it's to make the wrong people look like good lynches, and to make it hard to tell what lynches actually look good.)

i make this point because it's gotten pretty common in recent games for the dead to be somewhat snarky about "bad moves" when the town is losing, when they have the benefit of knowing who is who, and that clouds how well the town actually did with the information they had.
