THE DP SET-UP

https://docs.google.com...

There's some old expression about rain...

LIVING PLAYERS

Voice
Yas
Val
Molon
Vaar
Saph
Krieg
Blah
Wylted
FT

With 10 players alive, it takes 6 votes to lynch.
The DP ends at 7:30pm, DDO time, on 5/5/15.


Good luck!
Live Long and Prosper

VTL Krieg
Here's hoping he actually posts this time. If he does I think it's likely to be near the beginning of the game since that's what I remember him doing before (37.1 or 37.2 I forget). So I want to get something to go on from him before he disappears again.

From what I've heard FT is a really good player. If he's mafia I'd actually have expected him to claim something else, especially if miller is known as a good scum fake claim.

Miller isn't a good fake-claim, unless mafia knows there isn't a miller. When someone's first post is claiming miller, and especially if it's the first post in the game, it's 100% not fake. That's why the standard procedure on DDO is for townies to claim miller right away; it's partially self-confirming, and it helps cops not waste an investigation on them.

Well it's about time this game finally started...

As for roles, would one of you be willing to tell me your roles (I'll take no for an answer if that's what you wish)?

VTL Valk for having a long sig.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

Hence the vote.

Yours is prettier.

Yep. Must be a mod error.

Won't be on until ~11:00 EST tomorrow.

From what I've heard FT is a really good player. If he's mafia I'd actually have expected him to claim something else, especially if miller is known as a good scum fake claim.

He'd ply high risk high reward as scum or very lazy. People that hate playing scum will play high risk high reward type strategies, so they can be psuedo confirmed early and just coast. Or they'll just be lazy and coast.

It is kinda SOP for Miller to claim early around here, but I'd like that to change.

I'm growing kinda concerned about you, though. The excessive explanation for your vote is something I do a lot as scum, but nobody seems to notice. I'll have to see your other games to see if it's something you'll do. If we can't lynch FT than I'd like to pressure you for a claim. I'll sit back and see what everyone does for now.

I hate that standard procedure, and if there are 3 total mafia and I'm reasonably sure of a cop existing (due to having a godfather or something), I'd certainly risk being CCed.

VTL Valkrin

No real reason for doing this, but I find it unlikely that he would be town all 3 games. Let's just see how he acts.

OK, I'm able to get on for a little bit.
I'd like character claims as opposed to role claims, seeing as thematic analysis is important here.

VTL Yas

I'd like to hear something from him early. If he isn't going to be active, as per usual, I'd like at least his character so we know where to go from there.

I'll be back later.
