The game hasn't started yet. Conversation is also bordering on inappropriate for check-in, for the record.

We'll start tomorrow afternoon or when RU checks in.

[QUOTE="SmoothOperator, post: 1637337, member: 40382"]All Players!!!

What is your preferred alignment?

How collaborative are you as a player on a scale form one to ten?

Are you a more intuitive/creative/tactical, or analytical/BytheBooks/Strategic as a player? (Course you can be a combination of the six, I usually see a repetition of those three or these three with low intermingling)[/QUOTE]

This isn't my home site, but I can answer some of these.

Town

Why can't I be intuitive/analytical? At least that's how it feels like I play to me.

It was a good experience.

Well I'm town.[DOUBLEPOST=1500501160,1500500731][/DOUBLEPOST]So I benefit from not voting late in this game, and I'm not going to unless I have decently strong convictions one way or another.

Voting early in the phase doesn't matter.

Basically I'll probably stand back and watch in the event of a CFD, but that's not likely to happen here anyway.[DOUBLEPOST=1500501191][/DOUBLEPOST]Also <3 I missed this place.

I haven't done much here since the last Mafia games too, now that I look. There's other topics of mine I need to revive, but I'll talk about that elsewhere.

All players plz say hi or something

I guess we can answer questions now.
What is the usual town to mafia ratio?
I think 3:1 is the usual ratio, though independents can throw that off. We can make a better guess later probably.
What is the policy on negative utility claiming D1 here? (Millers, SleepWalkers, Ascetics, etc)
I mean as long as you don't quote your PM, that's fair game. Of course, no one would be quick to believe it because they're quite rare.
Random User told be offsite that D1 lynches generally don't happen here, Why is that?
If a Townie is voted for Day 1, they don't really have any way of proving themselves, having not had any actions yet. It usually results in mislynch, and with so few players that can sway the game. I'll vote if I have sufficient suspicions though.
What is your preferred alignment?
I always prefer Town!
How collaborative are you as a player on a scale form one to ten?
Not sure, what entails being collaborative, like following someone's lead in a lynch? Can't really plan actions together without claiming first...
Are you a more intuitive/creative/tactical, or analytical/BytheBooks/Strategic as a player? (Course you can be a combination of the six, I usually see a repetition of those three or these three with low intermingling)
See above. How about yourself?

Why did you feel the need to announce you are town?

Why are you wary of voting?

-I play lots of low power games, so I prioritize day discussion over night actions. I would rather dishevel my own wagon because of my arguments then relying on my role to do it for me. What quantifies sufficient suspicions?

-By collaborative I mean how good you build rapports with other players, how interactive you are, Do you compromise on issues and how you do, etc

-Intuitive/Creative is definitely my strong suit. I'm not good at thinking tactically, and over arching objectives are more important to me anyways.

No reason you can't be both. I usually see players having a preference for one over the other.

Sup. Just grinding those sweet points at the moment.

I like playing as Town because it's simpler, but getting a Mafia victory by leading people the wrong way feels really satisfying, so it's tough to say what I like more

Yeah, you're right, can't always rely on night results. But there are other things like who you voted for and how they flipped, which wouldn't be apparent until Day 2 at least. But sufficient suspicion isn't necessarily evidence, just enough behaviorally for me to doubt their motives. Like I said, intuition/analysis, not any tell in particular.
-By collaborative I mean how good you build rapports with other players, how interactive you are, Do you compromise on issues and how you do, etc
I guess I collaborate well with people I trust, I don't really know how to rate this.

sorry for borderline cheating on day 0 IAN, for some reason i was kind of confused and thought the game started even though looking back there was absolutely no indication that was the case.

anyway. i suggest we lynch s1x because he's smart so if he's mafia we will probably lose. 10/10 logic can't go wrong. y/y ??

So you are only posting for the sake of garnering points?

I have the impression that this is a town post. Though results are pending b/c I need to ask the mod a question first.

You seem to harbor paranoia of experienced players on the roster.

Unless posts regarding Smol kat, and S1x is joke posting?

I'm posting with the end goal of deducing the Mafia and claiming victory, but this is a nice sub-goal today. Your questions seem good so far, keep it up.

Also, some history: I have definitely bamboozled the town as Mafia more than once on these forums. But so has Apollo. I'm pretty sure not a single person is going to do any rookie mistakes this game

For context on where you're coming from, as well -- what's your preferred kind of game? Do you enjoy Mafia meta? What are your initial reactions to the approaches to the game you're seeing here, from myself and others?
