Super Experiment Mafia - Welcome Mafia!

Post by St. Tazy Ten » Tue Jun 28, 2016 3:35 am

Some things to note:

1. DIRE STRAIGHTS will only activate if your partner is killed unless we say otherwise. It activates immediately as well

2. Fake roles

Raven, Comic Book Mafia Cootie Detector, Townie Aligned

Manaphy, Pokemon Mafia Witness, Townie Aligned.

OR if you don't like either of these

(Name of character or concept), (Source) Mafia (Role), Townie Aligned.

Feel free to help each other out on that.

3. One of you MUST carry out the kill. However you can still use your role and your night action together. Don't forget this.

4. If a decision is not made before the dawn, I'll will decide your actions for you.

There you go. Happy Mafia-inginging!

So I can redirect a lynch and become unblockable/trackable and reflect kills if you die.

What are your restrictions for the lynch redirect?

I want to make a game plan for tomorrow

In the case where people suddenly suspect us and one of us may be lynched I want to be ready in advance and I want to know who else to lynch instead

Off of thread capacity the best lynches are shad/tml/erniewan

We can also use it to redirect a lynch from a villager onto another villager and that might not be a bad idea to be honest depending on said restrictions etc[DOUBLEPOST=1467604383,1467604351][/DOUBLEPOST]Thread capacity = thread ability[DOUBLEPOST=1467604470][/DOUBLEPOST]The implications behind a public bus drive make things difficult also

I can't necessarily claim it depending on the use, and with so few people we run a lot of risk of causing more harm than good with it honestly unless we strictly bus two villagers but then what would be the point?[DOUBLEPOST=1467604552][/DOUBLEPOST]You are a normal rolecop, and will be able to find someone's role by investigating them. However you can also use your crystal ball to find anyone that was targeted. You will not know who targeted them or with what, but it is definitely useful. Knowing a part of the game is always a boon to your side.

That's me[DOUBLEPOST=1467604597][/DOUBLEPOST]@Tazy I can only use one or the other right?

I can only use the redirect once, and only to change the alignment of the lynch. That said, I can do it by PM, so it can't be traced to me if I use it to save you, and we could potentially frame a townie with it if we knew an indie to swap them with. It'd have to be a pretty powerful indie to make up for losing the chance to reject one of us getting lynched, though.

It may also be worth using it on someone in a specific lynch position (first/last) and then claiming to be some sort of bomb.

I like the bomb idea especially because I think the town might level themselves into thinking that mafia having a lynch redirect would be op

Question on my ability: If I say I'm using it, say to swap my own lynch with Shad, and the lynch in question doesn't happen, did I use my one shot?

Also, do we vote by PM today or is it just that we have to count up the public votes manually?

You're not revealed. The game will say that the action took place but not who did it.

Ok cool

So afaict we have

TML- census of some kind potentially other actions

Shad - unknown

Ernie - redirector

Daos - unknown

RU - rules drone lyncher?

So tonight I say we peek daos to make sure we don't have to kill him[DOUBLEPOST=1468695942,1468695825][/DOUBLEPOST]The bus driver thing actually can potentially be used to clear one of us if we kill the townie we bus drive ourselves with

It's a little bit of a long shot but it could work

Daos may end up just being lynched unless he has a good claim.

If the vote goes my way, swap with Shad.

RU inadvertently wrote a better cover story for me than the bomb or judge routes.

That said, we basically can't lose if you can get the Shad wagon going and lynch him normally.

I'm gonna say right now, if we get to lylo or mylo with the witness ability still available then it will change for balance sake.

In a lylo or mylo situation, you use the ability as normal, except that all votes and FoS's to be wiped from the game and 48 hours added to the game clock. If no one else is lynched in those 48 hours then whoever you picked will be lynched.

If the game exits lylo or mylo then the ability returns to normal.
