Mafia Wins!

1st Place: MAFIA

G&P/Solon - You are the FOUNDERS. The Founders, aka Changelings, are able to shift their appearance; they are rarely seen, but have managed to maintain the Dominion for more than two thousand years. Because you can change shape to blend in, you are the GODFATHER. To investigative roles, it will appear as if you win with the town.

Blade - You are the Kazon. The KAZON are highly aggressive and quick to resort to fighting and violence. They suspect everyone of plotting against them, they ritualize violence, and their plots are blunt, but rarely well-thought out. Because of your bloodlust, you are the STRONGMAN. Each night if you target another player for death, you bypass any protective abilities (Doctor, Jailkeeper, Bulletproof, etc.) they may have. You do not get additional kills on top of the mafia NK.

Yay - You are the ROMULANS. Romulans are known for their military might, cunning, and expansionism. With the Tal Shiar as one of their most powerful tools, they are militarily strong and able to use deception to bypass many types of enemy security features. Because of your craftiness and ability to cloak yourself for a surprise strike, you are the NINJA. You may not be tracked or watched.

2nd Place: TOWN


XLAV - You are an ANDROID. While not a species per se, you have been granted the same rights as biological lifeforms by the courts. You are loyal, efficient, and striving to uncover what it means to be human; yet you find being impervious to many of the ills that befall humanity useful. Because you are a being of intellect, unimpacted by emotions or irrational thought, you are the ASCETIC. You are unaffected by non-lethal actions. You win with the town.

(Hidden Mod-Note: By the same token, you are constantly striving to be impacted by humanity, and overtime, there is evidence that you succeed in that quest. Therefore, you are not un-recruitable, because humanity is, for want of a better term, recruiting you.)

NightCats - You are Q. Q are an omnipotent and omniscient race of super-beings. Yet, for all of your power, you are unable to understand humanity--its drives, desires, its capacity for selflessness and its ability to descend into violence. Because you are innocent--you have never had to deal with hardship and are unable to fathom what it would mean to do so--you are the INNOCENT CHILD. You will be mod-confirmed at the beginning of DP4. You win with the town.

9Space - You are KLINGON. Klingons have an intensely powerful sense of honor. As such they are extremely brave warriors, and--in general--have a strong sense of loyalty and duty. Because of your sense of loyalty and duty to your cause and your Empire, you are the SAMURAI. Your alignment cannot be changed, and you will kill the first person who attempts to change your alignment. You win with the town.

Anti - You are BAJORAN. Bajor has been fighting a war against Cardassia for years; this war has occasionally spilled out into Federation space, leading to the Federation viewing some of you as a terrorist element. Because of your tension with the Federation, you are the MILLER. You will appear to be with the mafia to any investigative roles. You win with the town.

(Hidden Mod-Note: Because Bajorans oftentimes do ally with the Federation, you will only appear as a Millar on Odd-Nights.)


Ford - You are BOLIAN. Bolians are incredibly outspoken to the point where they annoy everyone. Because you are pushy and must express yourself, you are the LOBBYIST. Your votes have the weight of two, though you may only vote for one player at a time. You win with the town.

Josh - You are VULCAN. Vulcans are a highly logical race, and you have learned to master your emotion to pursue logical conclusions. Because of your rationality and ability to hunt down the truth, you are the TRACKER. Every night, you may select a player. You will learn who they visit. You win with the town.

Bullish - You are BETAZOID. Betazoid are empaths--they are often gifted mind readers and can speak telepathically with one another. Because of your empathic abilities, you can sense when someone is hiding something; you are the COP. You will learn whether or not a player wins with the mafia. You win with the town.

Khaos/Daytona - You are HUMAN. Humanity is extremely versatile, being known for it's capacity to be resilient, inventive, and forceful, as well as for its persistence and endurance. Because you believe you can do whatever you set your mind to and because you are so adaptable, you are the JOAT. You have the following 1-shot abilities: Doctor, Roleblocker, and Vigilante. You win with the town.

TV - You are MIZARIAN. The Mirzarians are a species that are devoutly non-violent and peaceful. Because you do not support violence, you are the PACIFIST. You cannot VTL players who are at L-1. You win with the town.

3rd Place: TP

Khaos - You are the BORG. The Borg are all about assimilation--they wish to make your "distinctiveness" their own by bringing you into the collective. This will only make the collective stronger and more complete. Because you are constantly striving to assimilate new species, you are the CULT LEADER. Each NP, you may select one player to join your cult; however, if you die, the Borg collective mind will be severed and your cult members will be freed to return to their previous lives (Mafia or Town). You win when the Borg (the Cultists) are in the majority. You may not assimilate mafia until after NP1.

The reason I investigated Solon/G&P NP1 was because of his exchange with Yay. Too bad he was GF lol.

Khaos, did you tell us you had a doctor role? I mean you could have semi-countered G&P.

The Strongman role was intended as a red herring, mostly. I know that there was some question about it in DP5...

All of my roles seemed so straightforward:

Pacifist minimizes Lobbyist
Miller/GF counters Cop
Samurai counters Cult Leader
Ninja counters Tracker

Because of this, I felt like I needed a role that didn't fit this pattern. Sure, Strongman counters 1-shot Doc, but why would I have created a nightly role, just to counter a 1-shot ability?

This really seemed to screw town up, as they erroneously assumed that Strongman implied the existence of a doctor, which was G&P's saving grace.

With simple roles though, everyone was pretty much confirmed. My death in the final NP made me realize that G&P was the killer, but then it was too late for me. I should have validated you. But after blade runner died, I thought that was enough to prove that you were a cop. TV was role confirmed, so that left G&P

I would not have thought a 1x is a counter to a full on doc....

Even if we no lynched, I assume mafia would have killed Bullish, leaving TV alive, and I would have had to make a similar decision.

The thought occurred to me that it could have been a red herring, as did cop, which had the exact same logic. If I remember right, Bullish claimed fourth to last, one of whom was scum, so taking the cop gambit is not too risky.

Similarly, I thought of the opposite game with TV's role, though I wasn't sure if it would counter as mafia (godfather/pacifist) or town's lobbyist.

I expected more from TV, but frankly, I should have went with my gut, and used the logic I stated DP2, that noobs were scum, which is why they killed the grade-A mislynch target. I wish someone would have reminded me of that.

I didn't log on to see TV's defense until it was too late, and I took his absence as scum giving up.
My work here is, finally, done.

maybe i shoulda emphasized more on the one time when Dudestop was an evil character so everyone lynched him but he was town anyway, thats how i expected to claim Romulans, whom appears to be bad.

Playing games on DDO has taught me to rely on roles and claims too much. Some times the psychology is what's important.

I know the feeling, although, I've never played anywhere else.

I don't blame the others for voting for me. G&P's doctor claim was extremely solid, with the strongman giving it real credence. It could ALMOST be called bastard modding. ;)

GG to all.

I didn't. I had a musical to do. It was tech week. No way I could commit with both that and school.
