The beginning of the end...
The town of Malhurst woke lazily to the first day of the witch-trials. Already, bakers and early morning farm workers were shutting up and gathering at the town square. The Mayor and high priest conversed at the foot of the wooden pyre.
"...And if you were found to be guilty?" Questioned the mayor in a hushed tone.
"It matters not. While I am here you will be able to see the evil spirit leaving the executed individual. I can't prevent that from happening." Replied the priest.
The town gathered in their families and cliques. The largest of the groups was the free masons guild. They were very vocal and unified in their decisions, and the mayor feared the negative impact this could cause on an unbiased witch-hunt.

"Gather around, and hush!" Called one of the elders. The town looked expectantly to the mayor. Gazing into the eyes of each individual, the mayor weighed the severity of what they were all about to partake in.
"Good people of Malhurst!" He began.
"As we discovered through the most brutal of tragedies, there is an organisation planted amongst us who desire to destroy us."
The town murmured. Suspicion and doubt darting through the hushed voices. Such an organisation couldn't really be so bad as they believed?
"We come here today to analyse and examine one and all, old and young, weak and strong to ascertain who these individuals might be. All are equal in the eyes of the law."
The high priest stood forward, motioning the mayor out of his way.
"And that person who we find to be suspect, shall face the fires of eternal judgement!" He exclaimed.
A shocked silence rippled through the crowd. The high priest had in no uncertain terms declared that every villager was about to be subjected to the scrutiny of a fiery execution.
"Molech have mercy on us." He finished.

Sample generic role pm:
SolonKR, you are Solon, the prestigious Co-Mod. Opting out of playing mafia in exchange for the power of this position has entitled you to be Smither's right hand man. Each day you may posts vote counts and declare lynches. Each night you may process actions.

Conditions: You must not answer questions that the individual would not be able to know granted any amount of experience with mafia. You may use your discretion to choose what information a player is reasonably entitled to.

Primary Objective: You win with town/mafia/Third party. Town/mafia/Thirdparty wins when all opposing factions are eliminated/when your faction has the most players in the game.


This semi-open set up contains 12 slots and 11 players. Each slot has been assigned to exactly one player save for one. Each slot also contains multiple categories to prevent a game win via immediate massclaim. With 11 players living it takes 6 votes to lynch. DP ends upon a successful lynch. After 72 hours, the player(s) with the most votes dies.

Commence Day 1.

So apparently the OP's and stories in this game will be important. Let's try to keep track of names, and big plot events. I'll also be keeping track of a claims list and post it as frequently as I can. As usual, I will probably post in large spurts rather than continuously throughout the day.

Because we don't know anything yet!
I'm asking you not to jump on the bandwagon.

Actually, I really don't care.

@xlav he is obv a liar and a scoundrel. The actual reason is that it is just an rvs vote. I'd rather not talk about theory or the merit of rvs.

@tuf are you saying you want us to claim? Also where is your vote?

For "condition."

Can you explain because it looks like you're saying it is a condition for your win. I'm not getting the joke if there is one.

Unvote
I'm still not sure, but HPG seems less anti-town than other people.
For now, I'm only voting on people who haven't posted yet because I want them to be active.

Asking about opening votes is good as it provides pressure. If you do it more than once in sequence, however, your inquisition loses its impact. It looks as if you aren't really focused on that player or have any real suspicion to the player(s) in particular.
Not very conducive to scumhunting imo. It looks as if you are merely proactively doing nothing of any import. Basically,trying to look active without actually having the motive of hunting.

tldr; your scumhunting motive is lacking

Actually nvm.

I read your mafia game
Unvote

1. Assuming a player is aware of their scum meta, do you think they'd continue acting upon that meta?
2. How is there enough activity from amber for you to gauge and compare metas across games? What exactly did you read that made you chose to unvote (implied townread).
3. Links to amber's game and reference to how you gauged his meta please.
