While I'd like to think I did a pretty good job in my only game as scum it wasn't so good as to be as generally Town read as I have been this game lol I still think it's kind of interesting how similar the NKs have been to that game though but that's neither here nor there.

Nah man. You were the real MVP
Spent too much time posting, should've just taken a page from you and Kark's book of not doing anything. Probably would've let my teammates figure things out without my noise lol

So the shippers had come to the conclusion... Sophia and CrimsonFist must die!

Sophia & CrimsonFist have been removed from the game

Someone has informed the two of you that evil forces of Love are going to destroy the world of shippers! Now this just won't do, right? The two of you have decided to join the battle against the wretched warriors of love!

You are paired with CrimsonFist/Sophia, and you two are shipping Wakka and Yuna from Final Fantasy X!

You are Aligned with Shippers of Nonsensicality (That means TOWN).

The two of you are An Ordinary Pair of Shippers. This means, that neither of you have any special powers. But you people can vote!

Also, as you are a Pair, you will get a private Shippers Chat in the Outer Gafia to use for communication to each other. Remember, that if one of you dies, your pair will die with you.

Your chat is here: [I LOVE YOU YUNA, YA KNOW? YA! I CAN LAUGH AS WELL!]

You will win, if everyone, who are against your faction, are defeated!

"Yay! Wait... they weren't scum?", Natiko said. Although nobody could hear him properly, as he had been building a longest tunnel inside his ship for the past three days, without making holes on his ship. That's impressive! But now it was all over... as the forces of love threw a stick of dynamite to his ship at the same moment as Sophia and Crimson had been killed. The dynamite exploded, and took Natiko and Nomadic Sparks to shipper heaven.

You will win, if everyone, who are against your faction, are defeated!

hey_monkey was walking along the boulevard when a beautiful, Amish-looking man in a miniskirt walked up to her.

”Hey girl, my name is Sorian," he said, ”you wanna have a good time?"

hey_monkey initially grimaced, but was soon entranced by his full beard and the thought of him churning butter. ”I...I don't know, how do I know you're the good kind of hooker?"

Sorian smiled, and asked sweetly, ”Whatever do you mean?"

hey_monkey fidgeted with her potted plant that she carried with her wherever she went and muttered, ”You know...'Town.'"

”Oh, there's no need to worry about that." Sorian reached into his miniskirt and produced a card that he handed to hey_monkey.



Suddenly, Royal_Flush called hey_monkey's cellphone (there seemed to be a signal now). She picked up and explained the situation to him.

”Uh, yeah, duh. He sounds totally legit. What kind of evil hooker would have a card like that? Bring him over."

Sorian followed the pair back to their tiny home, with Sawneeks following along, hiding in the shadows, clutching a wad of cash, counting it fitfully. As they walked inside, hey_monkey felt something underneath her foot, a piece of paper, but she shrugged it off and made her way to the bedroom where Flush was waiting.

As the group was starting to get into a varied states of undress, Sorian and Sawneeks took out big pink knives, and stabbed both hey_monkey and Royal_Flush.
”Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!", said Monkey.
”You were supposed to be Town Hookers!", screamed Royal.

”Ah, but you see...", Sorian said, ”you forgot one little detail!"



But it was too late now. The time to make that realisation had come and gone.

hey_monkey & Royal_Flush have been removed from the game!

You are paired with hey_monkey/Royal_Flush, and you two are shipping Cersei Lannister and Robb Stark from The Song of Ice and Fire!

You are Aligned with Shippers of Nonsensicality (That means TOWN).

The two of you are A Pair of Silencers. You have a 2-shot power to silence a pair of your choosing. This silencing can be done with a night phase command SILENCE: that can be either sent on your Shippers Chat, or as a role PM to me. If you hit a town pair, their chat will be locked for the next day and night phase. But if you hit scum, the scum chat will be locked for the next day phase, but not night phase. You can target one pair only once, so you can't use both shots on same target.

Also, as you are a Pair, you will get a private Shippers Chat in the Outer Gafia to use for communication to each other. Remember, that if one of you dies, your pair will die with you.

As Sorian walked out of the bedroom, wiping his hands clean, he noticed the piece of paper on the floor that hey_monkey had stepped on. He picked it up and smiled.



Who cares what the dead think? This was a victory for Love after all.

Sawneeks & Sorian have won the game!

The Bear of Love has invited you and your dear lover to a new quest... quest to destroy all shippers! They are simply so foul, so awful, that they simply have to be killed...

You have other couples to help you as well on this quest, so surely you will be all victorious!

You are paired with Sorian/Sawneeks, and you two are the lovers Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher from Uncharted!

You are Aligned with The Warriors of Love (That means SCUM).

The two of you are A Pair of Scum Hookers. During night phase, you can roleblock another pair with command SEX SESSION: The target will be so occupied with the four-some, so that they are not able to do their night action (don't worry, they won't remember anything about it).

Any Scum Pair can also do the Factional Night Kill with the night phase command KILL:.

The Other Champions of Love are Xbro, Karkador, Kitsunelaine and flatearthpandas

All of the Scum have a joint-scum chat in Outer Gafia. Remember that as a pair, if one dies, the other dies with you.

The Game Thread is here: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1412319

You win, once the Champions of Love consist of 50% or more of the living players.

Sorian and Sawneeks walked out of hey_monkey's & Royal_Flush's ship, and jumped back to their own. Soon enough they watched, as rest of town ships sank to the bottom of the ocean in silence. Joining them outside the Bear of Love was only Karkador and Xbro, the other couple fighting for the sake of love.

”Finally, the battle is over. Shippers have been utterly defeated."

Karkador & Xbro have won the game!

The two of you are A Pair of Scum Ninjas. During night phase, you can do a ninja kill with the command NINJA:, that replaces your factional night kill. This kill cannot be traced by any means. This power is only 2-shot, though.

Any Scum Pair can also do the Factional Night Kill with the night phase command KILL:. If you use this command, you cannot do the Ninja command during the same night.

It was a very beautiful sight to behold. Nothing but ships sinking into the ocean, while the sun was setting in.

Only thing to disrupt that was the sound of Karkador's ringtone. They must have gotten close enough to the mainland for their phones to finally receive a signal.

”Oh... oh dear..."

Karkador's happiness vanished from his face the moment he looked at his phone. ”It's... Zippedpinhead..."

”Who?" Xbro asked, as Karkador quickly went to the other side of their boat. ”Who is that?"
”Oh, Zipped is Karkador's ex lover. I think they have been through some stuff before."
”Ohhhh."

It sounded like the conversation Karkador was having in the phone was getting very heated very fast.
”Xbro? Oh he is... uhh... a friend! Yeah, forget about it! No, I'm not lying!"

But even though Xbro was interested in hearing more about this mysterious Zipped person, the Bear of Love just shook his head instead.
”Don't mind him! Let's watch some ads together instead."

So they did. And the rest of their little voyage together was very lovely indeed.

The Game has Ended with the victory of Forces of Love!

But why? Why on earth did Sawrian claim when they did. I just looked back over the D1 votes and I think even if we lynched Xkark I would have gone after Crimsonphia afterwards... gg, I guess.

It's been used in recent games by Melon and Blarg, the same game even?, both were scum that claimed PRs and melon survived a day longer because of it and blarg put enough doubt in the minds of town to not be hammered immediately, it's a risky move but worked well here. Sawrian were able to talk peeps out of voting for them despite all the evidence in front of them, well played

(I SAID I WAS BIAS ALREADY)
also cuz kikimon is legit fab :>

anyone who thinks they get progressively worse, i think you guys are maybe just in that zone in that manga phase where everything gets 100000000000000000x harder before you break your limits and come full form into your awesomeness

Good game everyone! Dying wasn't exactly what I had planned for my gambit, but it paid off in dividends since town lynched me for the wrong reasons that wound up haunting them for the rest of the game. So I guess my gambit... Semi-worked? Hm. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

But, hey, I survived more than one day, which is pretty good for my first scum game.

also no hard feelings fran or dragonz I was just trying to wind y'all up orz

Awards time!

Miller Tracker award for most BS claim Goes obviously for the Town Hooker Claim from Sorian & Sawneeks on D4. All of the mod team and most of the spectator chat were 100% sure they would be lynched in Day 4, or at least on Day 5, yet somehow the two of them were able to fight against the concensus of being Scum until the game ended.

Best Replacement Award goes for hey_monkey, who replaced in when there were already 50 pages on the game, yet she was able to get up to speed to the game remarkably fast. Shout outs to rac, acohrs and AbsolutBro as well, who replaced even later, with even more pages to read.

Town MVP award goes for Ourobolus, who was correct on trying his best to take Sorian down, even if he defended scum on Day 2. Also was most active poster in the game, even though he was lynched before the game had reached even the half-way point. Shout outs also to Ty4on & Darryl for chasing the correct scum, and in Ty’s case, pointing out Xbro’s fatal slip about the silencing.

Best New Player award goes for Xbro who survived the game from start to finish, even if things were very rough first, with him and Karkador almost getting lynched on Day 1. Xbro was very consistent on his game, which is always a good quality for a player.

The Bear of Love’s Award for most chat usage goes for Sophia and CrimsonFist, who both used the chat consistently to share their thoughts, which is always warming for the Bear to see.

Scum MVP award goes for Sorian & Sawneeks for fighting the odds stacked against them, somehow convincing the town to not lynch them even after they claimed their impossible Town Hooker role, that had all evidence pointing out to be bogus. Determination has proved to be important once again! Shout out for flatearthpandas who lead town to wild goose chase to lynch Ouro after he had already died. That’s pretty great.

And nobody played crappily in this game. Everyone tried to give them their all, and the spectator's consensus on if scum or town would win kept shifting every day phase. Town was remarkably close to figuring out the game multiple times, and many day phases saw very close calls to scum lynches.

Oh yeah Karkador gets The award of most dubious statistics for the weird D1 gambit.

Nomadic Sparks gets What if the mailman is a hooker award for the most bizarre if out-of-context post.

I really liked it (once I got a lover). It eases the tension and it's great to have a little chat when you're fed up with the game. It also allows you to share the workload because you have somebody whose analysis you can 100% trust.

The downside is that the player numbers are huge. For one that makes it quite confusing and bloated in the beginning. That also limits the player count (team count), which I think makes it challenging to put make game designs with big, unique elements since those need appropriate support and space to breathe but you don't want them to take over the game completely (talking from experience in designing Of Gods and Men and my upcoming game (currently in vetting, unless Retro forgot about it again) which both had/have some pretty unique elements I could not realize with less than 20 players). /sneakyadvertisement

Natiko, I definitely blame you. (jk but I said I would, so). I can't believe the silence DID hit scum and it didn't matter. I had all these nagging feelings about that day and everyone kept shutting them down. OH WELL.

Scum was given all tools to fabricate a town team being silenced claim. I wanted to evade lb1 situation at all costs. But the silencing did help on D2 lynch for sure.

And it's funny because when I went back to re-read, everyone seemed so speculative about the silence except for Crimson, who spoke with more confidence, and that honestly made me think it was more likely that if it hit scum, they were scum. DAMN.

I can't wait to see the spec thread.

Not bad, but you seemed to struggle feigning interest and reading people. I have the same issue as scum. You have to kinda force reads out of stuff and make a vault of fake reads. A hard part is changing those over time. It's very easy to fake super consistent reads, but townies change their mind and are uncertain.

Also don't be afraid of the thread. It's kinda stunning at times as scum how little town notices so don't focus 100% on never writing something wrong and instead keep up with the thread and have some presence. A classic scum play is clearly reading the thread and staying up to date, but only popping in occasionally with a post here and there as of they're scared of posting. I find it liberating as scum to just stop reading the thread completely and doing something else because it's *townie* lol

The fact that you did not give us full information about this (although you hinted at it but only after I directly asked) remains a questionable design/modding choice, imo. I feel like in a non-bastard games the players should know exactly what their roles do. Same goes for the fact that Sawrian's role PM did not mention the possibility of deactivating a possible virgin. You wouldn't even have to write that it exists, you could purposefully write it like a red herring but it should be there, imo.

Oh yeah, that reminds me of: I assume Ouro told the truth that you told them always the first player in the team gets to decide in case of a silenced PR? What was that inconsistency all about?

I do wonder what the game would have been like if I didn't immediately come out with the silence claim.

I also think Sorian roleblocking Ouro twice was....not to congratulate him too much, but it was a good move. Hitting the most vocal, "loud" PR with it was luck though.
