How did i not notice this thread? These are really cool, Un, and it's awesome that you're doing these for folks (and I look forward to seeing your take on TV2 as well). I really like the stylization you have going with a lot of these--you get a lot of personality and detail, and the large number of strokes looks really good with the black and white.

Star Wars Mafia Sign-Ups
There are eight more slots if folks want in, with a bit of room to expand beyond that if need be. Sign-ups will run for another four days or so.

Star Wars Mafia Sign-Ups
Hey, everyone! With OOTS mafia wrapped, the time has come to hold sign-ups for Star Wars mafia. However, I'll be handling a few things differently from past games on SOTF, and ask that everyone read through the following and make sure they're able to commit before signing up for the game.

Inactivity is an extremely frustrating aspect of SOTF mafia play, frequently leading to games being deadlocked and phases decided less by arguments/deduction/clever play and more by which side has more active members/whether town has anyone able and willing to herd everyone into even completing a vote.

As such, I'm trying a new experimental activity rule that is a lot stronger than past games. To be considered active, each phase every player must contribute at least four meaningful posts or three meaningful posts and one vote. Failure to remain active will result in a single warning, followed by a modkill should activity not improve. A post counts as meaningful if it advances the discussion/in some way engages with the game. Your first vote of any phase automatically counts as meaningful unless you're blatantly throwing out a random vote to meet requirements; further votes will be judged on their merit (that is to say, if you're spamming random votes with no rhyme or reason, that does not count as engaging with the game, while if you're joining a wagon it probably does). Exceptions in enforcement may be made for any phase that ends notably early, at mod discretion (which is to say you won't be punished if someone gets fast-pushed two days into a phase before you're able to check in), but don't count on any leniency if you wait until the last twenty-four hours to open your mouth. You will not be held accountable for posting during any time in which you are marked as Away in the appropriate thread.

With that out of the way, sign-ups are open. This game will not require or assume any knowledge of anything Star Wars beyond the first movie released (A New Hope), and you'll probably be fine even without that. We can run with as few as ten people, or as many as twenty-four; more or less than that will require some more complicated rebalancing but can be worked with.

Sign-ups will run for a week, followed by a pause of a few days to get PMs set up, then the game.

Well played, Vyse. For the record, I warned y'all neighbors! I warned you, bro!

EDIT: And well played by Boogie and Un too. I'm focusing on Vyse because he led us on really well; I had a pretty solid feeling that if there was a traitor neighbrside it was him, but got thrown hard by Goose's results.

EBWOP: not roleclaiming scum or town or whatever, just a moment of speculation that was likely uncalled for.

Think that's the lynch (and game, if I'm not mistaken).

So, for those not averse to bootleg merchandise, there is a set of League bootleg Legos produced in China. I ordered the better set (the one with Garen/Xin/Panth/Zed/Trynd/Kat in the link, which also comes with Akali, Lee Sin, and Ezreal) for ten bucks shipped from ebay. They're amusing, pretty solidly made, and quite inexpensive.

Fenris does sprite stuff!
These look really great! Thanks so much for volunteering your art;it's always super cool when folks do so. I don't have anyone for V6 done enough to have an appearance, but when I do I will come back and make a request. :)

I dunno. I don't like the claim at all, and don't really believe it. If it is true, then town has effectively lost, especially with NAFT's making it more explicit. I see a tiny bit of possibility here for a town gambit, but it's really tough to say what's WIFOM and what's not here. I dunno. I'd really like to hear from Boogie here.

Ricky, Riot sent all non-banned folks a free skin right after Christmas! You should log in.

In other news, I thought the scrub claim was ironic and the free Morg skin was Victorious. ><

LoL Thread, PRESEASON edition: MORE DOTS MORE DOTS
Which free Morgana skin, that is the question.

I'm not even touching ranked until like a month from now, when the dust settles a bit. I mean, I'm almost certain to land in Bronze I again anyways and stand proud as the best of the worst, just like the last two seasons. :P

Huh. I was, in that case, either banking on an unknown town killing role or getting a good redirect off. I think I was considering a speculative redirection at the time, to try to fish out a kill without a phase wasted. I can't really recall further, though. Sorry. :/

Order Of The Stick Mafia Game Thread
Sure thing! I can discuss this one without even checking (so apologies if I'm in the wholly wrong train of thought; I only remember the one incident). I was pretty sure Seth was the scum killing role, and we still had Decoy's redirection in our pocket--I was gonna prod him to redirect Seth's action to target Badb so as to save us a lynch on someone who was pretty clearly messing around in anti-town ways. It would have both confirmed Seth as scum nightkiller and cleaned up a super suspicious lead.

Order Of The Stick Mafia Game Thread
I'm torn. It's possible, I guess, but the whole thing strikes me as weird. I was thinking it could have been the result of a misdirection, I guess, if scum had such a role, but then the math breaks down, unless a mafia role has both the kill and a redirect power.

We know, if the truth is being told, that Vyse did not target anyone during the phase where Goose claimed Badb visited Vyse. I know I blocked Badb. This means that is scum has a killing role and a redirection role, they could not have redirected Goose's action to someone targeting Vyse, as no town-aligned roles did so and Vyse was not nightkilled. This means either a. Goose's stolen action was some variety of useless, which strikes me as unlikely from a balance perspective, or b. Goose lied about his results to push us towards a lynch on Badb, since we were already leaning that way for various reasons.

That said, I'm still more suspicious of NAFT at the moment, due to the extremely convenient roleclaim and his play to date. Goose could have been screwed up somehow--NAFT, I don't see it. It doesn't match with his play thus far, and it's just too out there. So I think we should prioritize him.

Point 2: Against the suggested targeting?
Yep! In the neighborhood, we prodded you to track NAFT rather than Badb, so as to better follow leads and avoid the stack-up. I was willing to let it slide when Badb seemed scummy, but n light of what seems more and more like a suspicious connection to NAFT, it looks a little more suspect.

Order Of The Stick Mafia Game Thread
My suspicion is a NAFT/Goose mafia--both have studiously avoided casting much suspicion on each other, with each covering for/softly pushing as town the other at various points (back to NAFT's putting Goose in the townblock in an early phase, and Goose's defense of NAFT's super sketchy claim).

Order Of The Stick Mafia Game Thread
Well, I'd assume that confirms my role either way, then. :P

That said, why I'm super suspicious of Goose:

*He didn't say anything in the neighborhood chat last night.

*He claimed to track Badb to Vyse, despite Badb having no night action and against our suggested targeting.

*He pushed against adding NAFT to the lynch pile, and I find NAFT's claim super suspect.

Oh, also I'm a roleblocker. In case that was never made explicit.
