Actually, an interesting artifact of the tape delay is that a rescue now would be a lot riskier for STAR/whoever, in that they'd be going in blind (barring some sort of mole situation again). This would probably preclude a similar blacklist from being enacted under most circumstances, which is a nice little side effect from the terrorists' point of view.


Couldn't they just get one of the kids to tell them who's been on the announcments a lot like Hansel, KK, Travis etc?

I believe their talking about Injun Joe.

Since it looks like the MurderWeasel lynch ain't happening and the faceclaim has gotten me a bit stumped, Im gonna go ahead and change my vote.

Unvote

Okay. So if we lynch Toben, who brings activity in the game, we might all die due to inactivity.

So, I'll vote Toben, if you promise me to talk everything out.

The game ain't gonna die out of inacivity if just one get's killed off dude.

Un-Persona
 
But you said this, at the exact same time you voted. This seems very contradicting.


I see that now, I will clarify on that.

What I meant was that I felt that scrum reading others for pushing the really quiet people to do something as iffy and I want clarification from Vyse about that when he gets on, but at the same time Im scum reading MW and we'll get something out of that lynch.

Sorry for coming off so muddled.

And you jumped on the MW wagon because...?


I voted MurderWeasel because we're actually going to get something out of that lynch. Because fankly trying to get people to lynch Decoy and Boogie at this point is pointless, not only because Boogie will probably be modkilled if he doesn't say anything, but because we've already tried to lynch decoy in the last phase and look at how that ended.

Let's get this going then.

Vote: MurderWeasel

@Vyse: how is pushing Boogie and Decoy not good?, at this point we need activity and input, and both of them have been providing neither.

Happy Holidays!
Happy Holidays everyone!

Agreed.

Paging all lurkers. Guys, I think I speak for most of the big mafia fans here when I say it's really frustrating, no matter your alignment, to see games stall out and descend into total inaction. I'd really ideally like to see everyone pitch in.

To get more specific, if everyone could really quickly go through the following:

What do you think of Decoy and his defense?
What do you think of the fairly widespread townreads on Vyse and Slam?
What do you think of the scumreads on me and NAFT?
Is there anything you think has been missed or overlooked?

If your opinions on all these matters aren't out there, please share.
Decoy has not really justified why we shouldn't lynch him and at this point I think we should.

Vyse and Slam are few of those really active in this, and they've been really town centric, trying to get people to talk and such which is why I think their town.

Both are null reads, but leaning towards scum after the Espi bandwagon.

A few members still haven't come up with their reads despite being told to do so several times, and Im starting to get really suspcious at that.

Sideliner's Been quiet because of some RL stuff.

Though why Boogie's been so quiet Idk.

And she gets involved in the escape, where the thread basically turns into a clusterfuck, having to search the thread for where the characters where is frustrating to say the least. And then we don't find out what happens to Terrie, the wiki says she got shot to death in an ambush, but there is nothing like that in the thread.
It got mentioned in the Epilogue from Brad's POV.
That makes it worse though as her death isn't even seen from her prespective, making her even more of a secondary character to Brad.

V3 Read-A-Thon
Early V3 had people like Gabriel Theobaldt, Melina Frost and Nathaniel Harris running around causing general havoc and killing people for little to no reason, which made most of Megami's characters feel like a breath of fresh air.

Why?

Because they are actually normal! I read their profiles and I can actually think I would meet someone like that in high school.

Anyways, on to the critique.

From start to finish of her story, Terrie travels with Brad Kavanagh, she has the same problem as James in that their partners are in foreground doing more interesting stuff while they are stuck in the background being quiet. Unfortunately their threads have some stuff I can't stand (several OOC notes, multiple characters one post) and towards the end her activity starts decreasing to the point she's barely posted with

It's around this time she's adopted by Ciel and she ends up a secondary character to Brad (weird how this kept happening to Megami's V3ers). Not to disservice Ciel, but after the adoption she got worse for me(it doesn't help it hits one of my pet peeves, handler controlling two characters in one post) And then she gets involved in the escape, where the thread basically turns into a clusterfuck, having to search the thread for where the characters are is frustrating to say the least. And we don't find out what happens to Terrie, the wiki says she got shot to death in an ambush, but there is nothing like that in the thread.

She's good before adoption, after adoption becomes more of a secondary character to her detriment.

Next please.

Espi flipping town made RC and Vyce null reads to me, altough im still iffy on RC, especially after his hammer vote.

Yugi's a bit of a null read right now, leaning towards town.
Can you elaborate a bit more on Yugi and RC? Specifically, why Yugi leans town and why RC's hammer vote sets you off.
Yugi didn't do much after the miller claim which came during the joke phase (which is why I never took it seriously) though it's moot point now.

RC's vote sets me off because it felt to me like he was trying to get rid off one of the few people who's actively hunting mafia, that and the general weirdness of his posts.

Decoy's leaning scum for me now, scum reading Slam for apparantly getting the ball going on the Espi lynch despite the fact Slam was the only one to unvote and the only one to openly state that it's suspicous, which came true when Espi turned town.

Bik's pretty suspicous having been abnormaly quiet since day 1 along with Boogie, as such I want both of them to state their reads.

V4 recommendations
V4 is one of our biggest versions yet, standing at about 276 characters, as such I have noticed a few members stating they haven't read it, same with some of the newbies. I had the same problem with it, not wanting to read it due to its vastness, that was until I was recommended R.J Lowe (thanks Toben) who got me into V4 and it went on from there.

So I thought that people can come with recommendations (Max 10, minimum 2) to get people to start reading it, especially since a lot of the style SOTF has got now was established in V4. Also I want to make this list to help newbies read a version that can be a bit hard to get into, so recommend characters you actually like, don't recommend characters just so you point and laugh at them.

Have at it!

@Toben - I appreciate the vote of confidence, but the last time I gave any clear help, I was mafia (in TV Mafia). As for Yugi, he gets BOD from me (Benefit of the Doubt). Since it's his first game, I'm thinking he might be doing some stuff out of ignorance rather than being scum, but this will likely wear off within a couple rounds (since eventually he'll have a decent handle on it as well). RC I gave the same BOD to, since I thought this was his first game. With Espi, I figured that a lynch would give us some info - unfortunately, many people did the same thing I did, and simply piled on, causing that plan to backfire. Essentially, the lynch gives us nothing. The only people who stand out due to that are MW and NAFT for being the people who kicked it off (NAFT is the stronger scum read), as well as Slam, who kinda-sorta got the ball rolling. My scum reads are, in order from strongest to weakest:

  • NAFT
  • Slam
  • MW
Slam was also the only who unvoted from that lynch, and gave his misgivings about it, So I don't get how you got scum readings from him.

Slam is coming off as town, what with being the only one to really be suspicous of the Espi lynch, a suspicion that ended up true with Espi flipping town.

Espi flipping town made RC and Vyce null reads to me, altough im still iffy on RC, especially after his hammer vote.

Yugi's a bit of a null read right now, leaning towards town.

Biki's been pretty quiet since Day 1 and I want to hear what he has to say, same with Decoy and Boogie.

Sorry Naft, still have not enough reads for a list.

However, the fact that people assume Grim died on duty smells a bit scummy, because: How can people know who mafia targetted? While boogies answer kinda seemed plausible, the fact that Yugi said that he "guessed" that Grim died that way, without an explanation, is a bit scummy towards me.

So, Yugi, how'd you know that Grim died that way?
He probably took a guess because of his role and the fact he wasn't very active Day 1.

slam
 
I'm sure people must have more opinions on the flip than this, especially those who were backing it so strongly in the first place. Let's speak up, folks.


I backed up the vote because Vyse and RC were pretty defensive of him and his response came of scummy to me, that and I thought going without a lynch on the first day would be a bad idea.

Order Of The Stick Mafia Game Thread
Espi's been pretty scummy in his responses, so Im putting in my vote.

VOTE: Espi
