Characters: None, this is more for staff than anything.

I'll probably still be around to be messaged (on Discord), but please don't make it about site business.

Additionally, feel free to post in my relationship thread for V7 in the meantime, I'll respond when I get back.

Ned and Yuki like games, Ned more so than Yuki. Yuki is more of a board game girl. Though Ned could try to be nice, he might end up annoying Richard with his voice acting.

Also, I'm draft Yuki's sister Yuka's profile. Are you cool with another pastel goth?
o_o

Yeah sure.

Okay, so Richard is probably gonna be Michael's least favourite person, like, ever. I'm thinking passive-aggresive stareoffs in the hallway or something like that.

Marceline and Violet would probably find in each other a friend to share their Occult interests. They're also both into video games, so (in my mind) I envision them hanging out with each other gaming as Violet decides whether or not to share that she also shares those interests with her. I'm decently sure they'd be close friends.
Yeah sure sounds good.

Lucas would probably attempt to interact with Richard as a fellow anti-social socialite, realize what anti-social actually means, and then get turned off by his personality. They might run into each other at some point though, and find out that they have some kind of mutual understanding. If you have different ideas I'd love to hear them because mine don't fill me with much confidence, haha.
I think that Richard could have Lucas as one of the people he... tolerates. I doubt they would be friends (I really only think Richard would have one actual friend, whom I'm still trying to figure out) but tolerating is pretty good for him.

in all the posting of relationship threads no-one will notice that i'm gay
Yugi is gay confirmed.

Respond with your character(s), which character(s) you would want a relationship with, and which relationship(s) you would want. I'll try to respond and update the list accordingly.

v7+ concepts
I've got three this time. Also I have a dude, which is fun.


Marceline Carlson
Appearance: Marceline is 5'7" and 138 pounds. Her face is oval shaped, and she has a pear shaped build. Her hair is long and pastel pink. Her eyes are hazel. She has multiple piercings. Her posture is generally relaxed, and she usually has a mischievous smile. Her clothes are typical for that of a pastel goth, and she tends to maintain pastel goth aesthetics.

Hobbies: Literature, Horror (Any Media), Video Games, The Occult, Goth Fashion, Drumming

Personality: Marceline is outgoing and mischievous. She's extremely strong willed and isn't afraid to speak her mind, though she generally tries to be agreeable and compromise if need be. She generally goes with the flow, and is difficult to actually bother. She's somewhat prone to melancholy and has an unhealthy fascination with the morbid and occult. She's very friendly and dependable to those that know her, but those that aren't familiar with her tend to just think of her as strange and disturbed. She is prone to mischief, and tends to act erratically for (seemingly) no reason.


Richard Smith
Appearance: Richard is 6'0" and 142 pounds. His face is long, and he has a slender build. His hair is short, messy, and black. His eyes are blue, and he normally has bags under his eyes from sleep deprivation. His posture is generally bad and often hunched over. He typically wears plain t-shirts of various colors and jeans.

Hobbies: Video Games, eSports, Card/Board Games

Personality: Richard is melancholic, cynical, and generally a pain to be around. He's anti-social and doesn't like to interact with other people most of the time, taking care to avoid crowds and groups that aren't a part of his (small) circle of friends. He tends to be argumentative and is easy to irritate. He's cold and curt to those he doesn't know and trust, and only somewhat better to those he does. He wants to become a professional gamer one day, though these aspirations are likely a pipe dream.


Ming Robinson (Pregame/Meanwhile Only)
Appearance: Ming is 5'4" and 112 pounds. Her face is round, and she has an hourglass shaped build. Her hair is a black medium length bob cut. Her eyes are almond shaped and brown. She has upright, proper posture in public but returns to a more relaxed posture with friends. She's usually found wearing dark tank tops and jeans, and she's almost never seen without her dharmachakra necklace.

Hobbies: Reading/Writing, Blogging, Drama/Theater, Volunteering, Buddhist Practice

Personality: Ming is upbeat, kind, and tries to be pleasant to everyone she meets. Ming is extroverted and outgoing, and loves being around other people. She tends to be agreeable to the point of letting others walk over her. She has a tendency to get anxious for no real reason. She's friendly to strangers and very friendly to people she is familiar with. She's dependable to the point where her friends can always count on her to get something done/keep her promises. She cares deeply for nearly everyone around her, doing her best to love them unconditionally.

V6 BKA/BDA Voting: June 2017
Welcome to the ninth round of V6's Best Kill and Best Death Award contest voting! We start off with a reminder of the rules:

Quote:
 
Votes will remain hidden until the voting is done.

Votes are made anonymously, so you'll need to log out of your account and post as a guest.

You may not vote for yourself for either award.

Votes must come with reasoning, or they will not be counted.


As a reminder on points of courtesy: please be sure to read every kill and death before voting, please vote for your genuine favorites rather than just voting for your friends, and please don't campaign for awards in the chat or otherwise try to influence the vote. Additionally, please do not use formatting which might make it unclear what your vote is, as this could lead to inaccurate results.

BEST KILL AWARD:
Due to Min-jae Parker killing Brendan Harte being the only kill eligible for the BKA, Min-jae wins by default, and voting for BKA is unnecessary.

BEST DEATH AWARD:
Ruggahissy for the death of Hazel Jung
Primrosette for the death of Brendan Harte
VoltTurtle for the death of Penelope Fitzgerald
backslash for the death of Raina Rose
Riki for the death of Johnny McKay
Iceblock for the death of Melanie Beckett
Bunny for the death of Dorothy Shelley
MK Kilmarnock for the death of Coleen Reagan


Voting will run for five days, with the winners being declared in the following announcement.

[3:43:46 PM] PixelTurtle: Emilyyyyy
[3:43:49 PM] PixelTurtle: I am hooooooooome
[3:44:03 PM] IcyBunny: Oh hey, Penelope! What's up?
[3:44:14 PM] PixelTurtle: nothing much
[3:44:17 PM] PixelTurtle: just felt like bothering you
[3:44:21 PM] PixelTurtle: if I had to think of something though...
[3:44:26 PM] PixelTurtle: the game I've been working on for a while is nearly done!
[3:44:32 PM] PixelTurtle: I got it to a pretty good state last night
[3:44:39 PM] PixelTurtle: managed to work out a lot of the bugs
[3:44:47 PM] PixelTurtle: so that's nice
[3:45:08 PM] IcyBunny: !!!
[3:45:19 PM] IcyBunny: That's really cool! When do you think it will actually be done? I can't wait to play it. ^_^
[3:45:23 PM] PixelTurtle: well, I need to build some more levels beyond the really basic ones
[3:45:28 PM] PixelTurtle: but that shouldn't take too long, honestly
[3:45:34 PM] PixelTurtle: it's getting everything to work exactly how you want it to that's the hardest part
[3:45:41 PM] PixelTurtle: but if I had to guess...
[3:45:49 PM] PixelTurtle: a few more months?
[3:45:58 PM] PixelTurtle: it's a small game but like... I'm working on it between school and other hobbies
[3:46:08 PM] PixelTurtle: these things, they take time
[3:46:23 PM] IcyBunny: Aha, that's about what I expected. Still though, it's really cool that you've been working on it! People really seem to appreciate it.
[3:46:44 PM] PixelTurtle: I mean
[3:46:49 PM] PixelTurtle: perhaps overstating my accomplishments here
[3:46:55 PM] PixelTurtle: I'm just trying to do stuff I enjoy, and if other people like it, that's cool too!
[3:47:02 PM] PixelTurtle: maybe I could turn it into a career at some point, but for right now it's just a hobby
[3:47:26 PM] IcyBunny: If you say so! I think you're really cool, is all. It's why I bothered to message you in the first place, all those months ago.
[3:47:46 PM] PixelTurtle: yeah, I get that whole spiel a lot . x .;
[3:47:51 PM] PixelTurtle: but thank you anyway <3
[3:48:11 PM] IcyBunny: Happy to be of help!
[3:48:25 PM] PixelTurtle: OH WAIT
[3:48:30 PM] PixelTurtle: this whole time we've been talking about me!
[3:48:36 PM] PixelTurtle: forgot to ask you how you've been doing
[3:48:43 PM] PixelTurtle: so... how's about it?
[3:48:59 PM] IcyBunny: Ahh my day wasn't really worth talking about. I haven't been doing a whole lot as of late, even though I've wanted to. I've been taken by this kind of malaise and I don't really know what to do about it. :(
[3:49:16 PM] IcyBunny: My girlfriend has been trying to help, but she hasn't exactly seen a whole lot of success, unfortunately. As much as she makes my day better, she can't really seem to improve my motivation.
[3:49:28 PM] PixelTurtle: ahhh that
[3:49:33 PM] PixelTurtle: really sucks :<
[3:49:39 PM] PixelTurtle: sorry to hear that
[3:49:46 PM] PixelTurtle: sometimes I have similar problems to that
[3:49:54 PM] PixelTurtle: and like
[3:50:03 PM] PixelTurtle: I think the thing that helps me the most is just knowing that people want to see me succeed
[3:50:08 PM] PixelTurtle: so I'm going to, if not for myself, but for them
[3:50:21 PM] IcyBunny: I wish I could feel that same way. A lot of the time it feels like the only people that care about me are you and my girlfriend. And, well... I don't know... even the most basic things are so hard for me to do, and I hate it.
[3:50:37 PM] PixelTurtle: sounds like you're depressed, then
[3:50:42 PM] PixelTurtle: if I was over there with you I'd hug you..!
[3:50:48 PM] PixelTurtle: but I'm not, so all I can say is that you should probably seek out therapy
[3:51:02 PM] IcyBunny: If only it was as easy as you make it out to be. With my mom like the way she is I don't think that will happen anytime soon. :(
[3:51:21 PM] PixelTurtle: you might have to do it yourself then :<
[3:51:26 PM] PixelTurtle: sorry I don't have a whole lot of good advice
[3:51:32 PM] PixelTurtle: and also I think my mom needs me for something
[3:51:39 PM] PixelTurtle: I'll be right back!
[3:51:44 PM] PixelTurtle: feel better, okay?
[3:52:01 PM] IcyBunny: I can try.

@Turtle - For what it's worth, I think you did pretty well despite being given a crappy hand. You slightly overthought stuff a couple of times, but honestly? You played me so hard for most of Day #1.

I had a solid plan to cast suspicion on the actual members of town (my read list was the start of that) but then Penelope got rolled and I was sad inside and had to work on that and not mafia so... yeah.

@Maddie: I haven't really figured balance yet--I just like to start stuff off with positive notes and saw some solutions to common issues that I liked! I'll give full setup thoughts later but I do think this skewed notably town. That said, I think your role PM (if it's as quoted) actually explicitly says your kills are blockable, making "Hitman" just a term for designated kill role (which is something I use too). That actually weakens scum compared to a floating kill in terms of balance, as an overall observation.
WHICH MAKES IT EVEN WORSE

Mass Effect Mafia Fallout Thread
Actually you know what I'm not even going to pretend I don't mean to come off as salty.

This setup was horrifically town-sided.


Town had...

ELEVEN out of FIFTEEN TOTAL TOWNIES with power roles and only ONE role that is arguably negative utility (nexus).

SEVEN protective roles (doctor, bulletproof, bomb, commuter, jack-of-all-trades, inventor, universal backup).

FIVE killing roles (vigilante, bomb, inventor, jack-of-all-trades, universal backup).

FOUR investigation roles (cop, inventor, jack-of-all-trades, universal backup).


Meanwhile, scum had...

One hitman with kill-piercing that apparently didn't even work and at least one role that it wouldn't have worked on period (commuter).

One roleblocker that can only stop one of town's ELEVEN power roles a night and that's purely by random chance.

One godfather who wasn't bulletproof in a game with more town killing roles than town investigative roles.

Five safe-claims that were bad flavor-wise and hilariously bad in terms of the roles selected for being safe (FIVE vanilla townie claims in a game where town only had FOUR vanilla townies).


TL;DR this game was disgustingly town-sided and it wasn't fun in the slightest to play.

I had fun with this game for the bits I was in (though I fell out of following it afterwards for non-game reasons). I can't speak to the flavor, but I think having double role PMs for scum is a solid way to handle some of the unique setup elements (including the quoting of PMs) and it's cool to see that that's how things worked. I also am always pleased to see games that skew a bit more vanilla in setup/roles involved, and that's not afraid to assign some vanilla townies.
There weren't that many vanilla townies, though. There were four total in a game where the mafia got bad safe-claims and no power roles beyond the standard ones (and I don't even think my hitman role worked, my kills were blocked multiple times). Town meanwhile got loads of good power roles. Really the only way I think it could have been stronger is if there was a watcher in play.
