Quick google search of a few key words in my role PM shows the theme to be something called the Dresden Files. Never heard of it. This wiki should be useful:

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's only me, and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one, and I walk alone

VTL DD for needing to git gud.
I concur with his theme analysis, but note that thematic analysis is completely null; mafia actually starts in a position to know more about the theme, because they get multiple characters (with the exception of a painfully bastard game I once played in) rather than just one.

Also, I'm going to make an effort to be much more active in this game; I haven't exactly been the world's best ringer with ~3 posts/day.
In a game with character claims, we have a bit more freedom with regards to determining how the DP will play out; instead of pressuring for role claims, we can pressure for character claims. Soft claiming also is much more useful in a thematic game--you can limit yourself to a few characters, by saying, for example, "my character is a middle-aged male with black hair". The trick with soft-claiming is to be specific enough to limit yourself to just a few characters (my example is probably a bit vague), while still not restricting yourself to so few characters that mafia figures out that you're certainly a main character (they tend to be power roles) and kills you.

Ok honestly, I don't remember him posting a single thing in any DP, and he still killed more scum than the rest of town did.

When I was looking for other sadists the other day, I noticed a trend (unintended?) of who bish is likely to choose as mafia. If the trend holds true to this game, then the mafia are likely: Solon, Vaarka, Tej, Midnight ([2 or 3] of 4).

Obviously. That is why town could use every bit of information about the game that they can get. If the mafia already knows something then making that info public can only help.

I never really got a hang of these themed settings, they seem too complex :3

Anyhow looking forward to a fun game.

VTL Varrack for claim. He ought to post more.

VTL Varrack I'm just going along with the wagon. This game is especially inactive though...

VTL Varrack

That's four votes on him.

We do need more activity all around though for these games.

It is totally randomized, so I have been told.
