THE DP SET-UP

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

I'll be leading the DP. Saph will take the NP.

LIVING PLAYERS

LW
Valo
TS
Endark
Val
Blah
Disc
Khaos
Lannan
Butter

With 10 players alive, it takes 6 votes to lynch.
The DP ends at 3:00pm, Central Time, on 10/23/15.
Endark, Khaos, and Val are replacing several inactives.


Good luck!
Live Long and Prosper

I'm a Bish.

ATTENTION

As of this DP, all players must now make a minimum of 15 substantive posts each DP. Dead players must post something in their PMs every 72 hours to confirm that they are still going to be active later.

Exceptions may be made if players give prior notice to the mod(s), and the mod(s) approve their request to be able to make fewer minimum posts. What counts as a "substantive" post is entirely at the mod(s')'s discretion, but it must involve game-progressing analysis of some sort.

Players may only receive 1 activity prompt (prompts in the main PM count for those in it) halfway through a DP or 48 hours into a cycle if the mod deems it necessary. Activity prompts are not guaranteed; it is your own responsibility to remember your commitments.

Failure to comply with this new policy for any one DP or (for dead players) any 72 hour cycle makes a player immediately eligible for replacement or to be mod-killed. Take this as your warning.

In short: POST FOR GOD'S SAKE! Thank you for your cooperation and attention.
Live Long and Prosper

Well we all know how Khaos plays. The fact that he's in this game will completely change the direction of the game and the attitude in the game.

How so?

Because I am a game changer ;)

Note to the class:
I am going to offer notes to the class. This is my honest opinion of game theory and mechanics and whatnot. These can be taken to the bank for their genuineness.
I will not be trying to manipulate with what is IN THE NOTE and the note is always at the end of the post (or the entire post), and these are for teaching purposes.
Regardless of my alignment, these can be trusted.

Note to the class:
bsh1 usually has two mafia and one third party in this game, so we have to be careful of mislynches here.
My work here is, finally, done.

Note to the class:
Asking for soft claims is stupid, doubly so if you are voting for them.
The best soft claim is one that is unsolicited.

Further, exposing claims early on, given this set-up is very dangerous.
Try to generate activity that provides behavior to be analyzed.

Alright, I want to ask you a question :3
If you had to choose to lynch either lannan, khaos, or butters, who would you choose and why? I'm asking this and hoping that you will look at what they've typed so far and think about which one seems like someone you don't trust or someone you may think seems a little suspicious. Or maybe even just random right now, seeing as there's not much to go off of yet.

I'm leaning more towards him being third party, but I can understand the vanilla if visiting him wouldn't do anything.
