If this game were anything but normal I'd also say karma would probably play in shifting alignments but that is probably too chaotic for a Mafia game. Maybe there'll be a recruiter or something.*

Killing him N1 would be a bold play, and possibly would lean at some PR hints on the scum side. I'd be surprised if he died that fast.

Kinda. But he's also an easy target for any Healer, Tracker, or other defensive town PRs. Not to mention his role isn't all that powerful: would you really give up a shot at a real PR to take out someone as vanilla as batsnacks?

I wouldn't use the night kill on him on night 1. There's probably a role in place to make sure he gets a fair chance to help town. Then again it's iced tea in front of me: is there sugar or no sugar? I'd think there's a role in place but melonrabbit might want scum to think that so they'll hesitate. But I'm leaning on there being something to help him out.

A recruiter is a normal role isn't it? Also, our theme is inFamous, where you can change your alignment. But I don't wanna go down this rabbit hole, even if there is a promise of melon.

Recruiter is a pretty wild role generally, I hadn't considered the source material though and I guess it explains how you came to that line of thinking.

Fair enough.

Someone else say something stupid pls. I'd call Bronx out for summoning Blarg early but I feel like we've already done that whole song and dance in a past life.

I mean I wouldn't be surprised if there is some sort of protection/tracking role for town even if we didn't have an innocent child. But I think the chances of him surviving,the night won't be that low, he's essentially an ordinary townie. Mafia would be more likely to want to hopefully hit a PR overnight. His usefulness would potentially come farther down the line when there are fewer people left and trust is far more important.

I'mnever really have been a fan of the obsession with joke posts that permeate some of the games, especially when people use post count as some barometer of something meaningful in terms of gameplay. There are a ton of other people here who'll sate your thirst.

Early joke posts are extremely useful they are literally the 1st thing to look for when anyone flips. and they're entertaining!

Curdun Cay is no easy place to navigate alone nor would you describe it as friendly but you have a feeling if you put together the right team. A good, trusted team. You could escape. (It's us or them.)

Who can you trust?

There are rumors and you have a single lead.

batsnacks, you are…

Does that mean that something bad happens to town if batsnacks is killed?

Ther are a ton of words I could call it, but entertaining isn't one of them especially since they rarely ever stop at early posts. And nobody looks at joke posts to find crucial information, they look at read lists and overall thoughts on the game.

i don't know what I think about the confirmed town player. He will likely become a scum target but it's nice to have someone we can rally around.

But since we are in Day 1, it's all *pew *pew and jokes here. I'll vote first tomorrow after some more people have checked in on game day.

It's not just breadcrumbs. Mafia cop hunts people who are suspiciously correct. Joke phase is -the- time to gain equities, which mafia isn't focused on, which is why mafia (you) wants to skip it.

Don't think we've ever had a N0 cop though. So D1 junk posts, are exactly that. Junk. At the very best it would lead to a serious dose of wifom.

Also, have you ever gone back and successfully derived info from joke posts?

in: mr, we're friends right

A few seconds later...

Betty was struck by the hammer of Friendship. He was batsnacks, snacked on by real bats.

Well if you have any questions, just feel free to ask all of us. About the one running off their mouths being suspicious, they almost always end up as townie in my experience. The ones that lurk in the shadows, we call them lurkers because they just skate on by doing the bare minimum, are more dangerous since we have nothing to go on with them. Usually these folks get modkilled.

I will keep my wits about me, with my eyes sharp and my blade sharper...if you catch my drift.
