What more do I need to explain to you? *shrug* I'd have to believe that it's ian. Who hasn't claimed yet? S1x?

[QUOTE="I am nobody, post: 1492570, member: 34539"]^I'd have already won, then, wouldn't I? Four mafia and an SK would never happen, so I'd already be the last killing role.[/QUOTE]
No, SKs have to kill every other player, not just be the last surviving killing role. This logic proves nothing.

Also, since ZG confirmed me, I guess I can keep my role private. I don't mind saying that I'm Dream Theater though.

I'm not sure about Mafia Tracker though, it's not that useful for them. Though with a Janitor, Redirector, AND Roleblocker, a fourth mafia ability better be weak, and probably some sort of investigative role. It's probably more likely that there's an SK rather than a fourth mafiat.

Btw, I wanted Val to claim his band because I had a theory that Capcom, as monstr's Lover would have been the Cop and that's why the mafia elected to kill him even tho it sacrificed monstrman's life. I hoped that Val would claim a band with ties to Megadeth in some way, with the Lover/Sibling relationship. Turns out Cop was S1x though, so never mind.

What we could do is lynch IAN and have March kill himself tonight (or vice versa), with Loot cheering ZG to let her use my power again. And I think ZG can figure what I'll do.

SKs in previous games here have just been kill every other killing role. Kill everyone sounds basically unwinnable.

It is hard, but it is not impossible. And since this is NPR, it's gonna be closer to this version than 'VGF' version (though I was one in Marvel vs Capcom here and I lost because I didn't kill everyone). Regardless, it's not assumable that the SK would have won by now.

Isn't that exactly what a serial killer does though. Kill everyone?

Vote: ian

I know I'm not mafia. So here we go.

If we lynch March first, what are the chances that ian, as an SK, wins? I mean, is that something that could happen if there is in fact a mafiat left? Because if we lynch March and he is mafia, and ian is in fact town, then we also win and we don't have to kill ian! (sorry!) But if all the mafiats are eliminated, is there a chance that an SK would win by default being the last remaining threat to town?

SK would have to have fewer numbers iirc from the early games I played/read. In fact I've seen rules saying more town = SK loses after all scum die.

Btw I just realized I gave ZG the ability to perform a task twice, and she can copy a player to use said skill twice without even knowing what she's doing. THAT IS AS **** AMAZING AS MR. TORGUE.

What if Loot cheers ZG, who copies Loot and me, cheers him, and then he cheers me with his second action? :O

I think SK would at least have to survive until there is only one townie left. Is there a chance that SK wins being the last threat? Possibly, I've seen SKs that win just by surviving with another winning faction. But since the game is not over, and I doubt there are 4 mafia AND an SK, it doesn't look like it's the case.

although doing this doesn't really account for the mafia kill...but still, I wonder if there is some combination that could work where I both get cheered and cheer someone else, while also mimicking an action back to someone who is attempting to make a kill.

we should actually figure out if this could work

How about we have ZG copy Loot and both her and Loot cheer IAN and he can kill everyone!

Can't ZG and Loot just cause an infinite loop of cheering? I want that.

at the very least, there is a realistic way to use ernie's ability on myself, loot, and ernie, clearly the Three Best Friends Who Anyone Could Have (and the most towninest of all of us) :p

ernie, you sure you don't want to divulge? I feel as though you might as well, at this point.

Alright, I'm Doctor. And yes, that plan could protect us all three. :P

I think I'd rather risk mislynching a vig than leaving him alive as an SK, since we don't really need any more night kills than necessary. March has proved himself Tracker, and that's good enough for me for now.

If IAN isn't SK, then tonight we can have Loot cheer ZG, and have her use my power on me or Loot, as well as March's power on himself (and I could protect either ZG or Loot). Chances are March would just use Track even if he IS mafia to avoid death, and tomorrow we'd just lynch him.[DOUBLEPOST=1413341703,1413341640][/DOUBLEPOST]Also, there's a chance that an SK has some hidden ability such as Armor.[DOUBLEPOST=1413341762][/DOUBLEPOST]Wait, March, why did you track ZG last night? Why not track someone more suspicious?

I'm sick with a bad sinus infection, and my head feels like it's about to explode. If you all are gonna pull some crap, make it something I can follow.

[QUOTE="Ernieween, post: 1492726, member: 37587"]Wait, March, why did you track ZG last night? Why not track someone more suspicious?[/QUOTE]I figured someone was going to ask this. I tracked ZG because she was someone that everyone trusted and wouldn't lie to get me killed. I figured tracking Val would be "too obvious" and if we were scum buddies, then of course I would have known who he targeted. Does that make sense?

If we lynch ian, then what we should do is the following:

loot: cheer me

me: mimic ernie to protect loot, then mimic ernie to protect ernie

ernie: protect me

no point in going for the kill, since if march is mafia we will all survive then and we can lynch him tomorrow
