    January D6 Light Game

    Hosted by:@Mantichora
    Start date: Monday, January 7th (Later if required)
    Phase lengths: 36/12 hours
    Sod/Eod: 9 am/pm EST
    Mechanics: Majority enabled D2, forward.
    Post requirement: 10 posts min per full day. 50 post limit lifted 1 hour before EoD.

    D6 Mafia is a 13-player Semi-Open Variable setup.

    Town Power:

    To determine the town power, you must roll a die six times and mark down the numbers. The amount of times the die lands in a grouping determines the type of power role present in the game. Vanilla Town roles are added to bring the number of town up to ten.

    1-3: Investigative
    4-5: Protective
    6: Killing

    Investigative
    1 Town Innocent Child
    2 Town Role Oracle
    3 Town Role Cop
    4 Town Tracker
    5 Town Parity Cop
    6 Town Cop (with Night 0 peek)
    Protective
    1 Town Bodyguard
    2 Town Doctor
    3 Town Roleblocker
    4 Town Jailkeeper
    5 Town Jailkeeper + Town Bodyguard
    6 Town Roleblocker + Town Doctor
    Killing
    1 1-Shot Town Vigilante
    2 2-Shot Town Vigilante
    3 Town Vigilante
    4 Town Vigilante
    5 Town Vigilante + 1-Shot Town Vigilante
    6 Town Vigilante + 2-Shot Town Vigilante


    Mafia Power:

    For the mafia power roles, take the number of town power roles minus one, then roll a die that many times and add the role(s) it lands on. Mafia Goons are added to bring the number of mafia up to three.

    Mafia Roles
    1 Mafia Roleblocker
    2 Mafia Roleblocker
    3 Mafia Jailkeeper

    This is an automated game of Mafia.



    [/BOX]
    • Majority will be in effect starting Day 2. Day 2 onward will end the instant a majority is reached.
    • Town wins when all threats to Town have been eliminated.
    • Mafia factions win when they achieve Parity and all other evil factions have been eliminated at any time.
    • Votes are automatically locked in at LYLO.
    • No Lynching is enabled. Vote for No Lynch to forgo a lynch that Day.
    • Mafia factional kills are mandatory. Mafia must submit a factional kill each night, or a player outside their faction will be chosen at random.
    • Mafia factional kills are assigned. They can be tracked, watched, or roleblocked.
    • Mafia share a factional Night Kill, which is a single standard shot for their faction.
    • Mafia may communicate at any time.
    • Tied votes will result in a player being lynched at random from among the tied players.

    FAQ

    Are you unsure about how actions are processed or how roles interact with each other? Then read more here:

    ORDER OF OPERATIONS

    Night actions are processed in this order:

    Strongman kills
    Roleblocks
    Jails
    Doctors
    Bodyguards
    Kills
    Investigations
    Backups

    When an action was submitted during the night will never matter when the actions are processed.

    ACTION FEEDBACK

    These are the results you will get when you submit certain actions.

    Non-investigative roles when they submit an action (they also receive this if they are roleblocked):

    Your action on Player A was received.
    Investigative actions return results even if the target dies on the same night.

    Actions that count as visits are counted as visits even if the actor dies on the same night.

    Investigative roles (Tracker, Cop, etc.) when roleblocked:

    Your action on Player B did not return any results.
    Trackers when tracking a person that didn't visit anyone (or if they targeted a Ninja):

    Player C did not visit anyone.
    Watchers when watching a person that wasn't visited by anyone (or only visited by a Ninja):

    Player D was not visited by anyone.
    Alignment Cop when investigating a town-aligned player (or a Godfather):

    Player E is Town
    Watcher when watching a person that was visited by multiple people:

    Player F was visited by Player G, Player H, Player I
    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    How do I submit my action?
    Use the form below the game thread. If your role has a night action, the form will only be visible during night phases. It's not possible to submit actions in advance of the night phase.

    What does it mean if the Mafia Host says that night kills are assigned?
    In games with this setting turned on, the member of the mafia team that made the most recent night kill submission will be the one assigned to the kill, which means that the kill can be blocked if a Town Roleblocker or Town Jailkeeper target the mafia player in question. Similarly, the kill can be tracked and watched by Town Trackers and Town Watchers. If this setting isn't turned on, then it doesn't matter who the last person to submit the mafia kill is, as the kill is unblockable and untrackable in this case.

    Where do I find example role PM's?
    This thread contains example role PM's for all roles currently supported by the Modbot as well as information on the various modifiers. Here you will find the answers to a lot of questions not covered in this FAQ section.

    Which roles can self-target?
    Only Watchers are able to use their ability on themselves at night. This means that Doctors or Jailkeepers aren't able to protect themselves, for example.

    Which roles are not able to target the same players on consecutive nights?
    Doctors, Jailkeepers, and Roleblockers are not allowed to target the same player twice in a row. Everyone else is, including Bodyguards. Note that this non-consecutive restriction still holds true even if one of these three roles were blocked the night before when targeting the person that they're attempting to target again.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A and Jailkeeper B or Roleblocker A and Roleblocker B target each other (and are not targetted by other blockers)?
    In the case of Jailkeepers, they will block and protect each other. In the case of Roleblockers, they also block each other. This means that the two players are trackable to each other that night by Trackers and Watchers. It also means that if one of them is mafia and happens to simultaneously be the one submitting the factional kill that night in a game with assigned kills, then this kill is blocked. This same principle applies to longer loops. I.e. in a A > B > C > D > A loop, everyone is blocked.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Roleblocker B who targets Jailkeeper A?
    Jailkeeper A will be blocked in this scenario. Refer to the order of operations: Roleblocks process before jails.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Roleblocker B who targets Player C?
    As stated above, roleblocks process before jails, so Roleblocker B will successfully block Player C. I.e. Jailkeeper A will fail to block Roleblocker B, but will still protect Roleblocker B.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Jailkeeper B and Jailkeeper B targets Jailkeeper C (who isn't targeting any of the former two)?
    In this case, Jailkeeper A would prevent Jailkeeper B's block from occuring, meaning that Jailkeeper C's action is not blocked.

    If an X-Shot role is blocked while using a shot, do they lose that shot forever?
    Yes. A 1-shot Vigilante being blocked while attempting to kill someone will not have their shot refunded.

    If someone with a Strongman modifier kills Player A who is protected by Bodyguard B, who dies?
    Player A will die, and Bodyguard B will survive.

    Can a mafia team choose not to kill anyone during a night?
    The host can determine this using the Mafia Factional Kill setting. Kills can be mandatory, optional, or disabled altogether.

    The default is No. The mafia factional kill is compulsory. This is done in order to avoid deadlocked games where the town keeps no lynching and the mafia refuses to submit a kill. If the game has assigned kills, it will be randomized which member of the team is carrying out the kill.

    If there is only one mafia member left in a game without assigned kills, can the mafia factional kill then be blocked and/or tracked?
    No.

    Can the mafia submit a kill for one of their own members?
    No.

    If I kill someone, does their night action, if they have one, still succeed?
    Yes, killing someone doesn't prevent them from performing their night action (unless they investigated someone, in which case they will not receive a report). Refer to the order of operations: All kills happen at the end of the night, and everyone pulls the trigger simultaneously.

    Can individual night actions be proxied on mafia teams?
    No. If the mafia team has a Mafia Roleblocker, for example, and they want to use this role's action, then the player occupying that slot must submit the action themselves.

    If a Lover is shot during the night, while the other Lover is protected that night, does the other Lover still die?
    Yes. It's not possible to prevent a Lover from dying of love sickness.

    If a Bodyguard protects Lover A, while Lover B is shot during that same night, what happens?
    A dies of love sickness and Bodyguard lives.

    If there are any Innocent Childs in the game, are these confirmed in the thread right when the game begins?
    No. Innocent Childs are able to decide themselves when or if they wish to have the Modbot confirm their role and alignment in the thread. Note that this is exclusively a day action and that it can take up to one minute for the Modbot to process the action.

    What results are Alignment Cops, Full Cops and Role Cops given if they investigate a Godfather or a Miller?
    Alignment Cops are told "Town" for Godfathers and "Mafia" for Millers. Full Cops are told "Vanilla Town" for Godfathers and "Mafia Goon" for Millers. Role Cops are told "Godfather" for Godfathers and "Miller" for Millers.

    Can Role Cops tell the difference between a Vanilla Town and Mafia Goon?
    No. They are told "Vanilla" when investigating either of these two roles.

    If I roleblock someone with a Bulletproof Vest, will that nullify the effect of the vest?
    No. Bulletproof Vests are passive modifiers that cannot be blocked from working.

    If I roleblock Masons, Neighbors or Lovers with out of thread communication privileges, can I prevent them from talking at night?
    No.

    If I roleblock a Godfather, will they still be revealed as being town-aligned to Alignment Cops and Full Cops that night?
    Yes.

    USING THE SOFTWARE

    Are you wondering about how to vote, submit night actions or multi-isolate players? Read about this and more here:

    VOTING BBCODES

    Our forum votes for someone by using the vote tags: [V]Thingyman[/V]. Preview:

    ##Vote Thingyman

    Make sure that you spell out the full, correct name. Abbreviations or misspelled names will not be registered by the Modbot.

    To unvote, use the tags: [UNV][/UNV] . When unvoting you do not need to enter the name of the person that you are unvoting. Preview:

    ##Unvote

    VOTING BUTTONS

    You can also quickly vote for someone by clicking on the box with a checkmark icon, which will bring up an alphabetized dropdown containing the names of living players:



    This will insert [V][/V] tags with the name of the player you selected in the dropdown, perfect every time.

    Click the empty checkbox button to insert [UNV][/UNV].

    SUBMITTING NIGHT ACTIONS

    If you have a night action, simply submit this at night by scrolling to the bottom of the game thread. Here you will find a night action form like this:



    Click the dropdown and select the player whom you wish to use your night action on. You can change it as many times as you wish before the deadline expires.

    CALLING UP A VOTECOUNT

    Votecounts will appear automatically at various intervals, but you can also call up votecounts yourself by following these steps:

    First, you need to apply to join "Mafia Game Hosts" under Permission Groups.

    Second, once your request has been approved, you will be able to call up votecounts by simply pushing the "Post Votecount" button in the top right corner of any game thread that you'd like an updated votecount for.


    VIEWING VOTE HISTORY

    There are three ways to access the vote history for any game.

    1. Click on the "Vote History" button in the top right corner of the game thread:

    2. Click on the "View Vote History" link, which accompanies all votecounts:

    3. Click on Modbot in the top forum menu. This will give you a list of ongoing and completed games:



      Next, simply click on "Vote History" to view all votes for that game.

    Following any of the above three steps will bring you to an overview like this one:



    Click on a Voter's username to view all of the votes by their slot.

    Click on a Target's username to view all of the votes for their slot.

    ISOLATING A PLAYER'S POSTS

    If you wish to read a player's posts in isolation, simply click on "ISO" in the top right corner of one of that player's posts in the relevant thread as illustrated here:



    Alternatively, you can access a player's posts in isolation by clicking on the number next to "Replies:" in the forum lobby.



    Doing so will pull up a window listing the post counts for everyone who has posted in that thread. You access someone's posts in isolation by simply clicking on the number next to "Posts:" for that person.



    The ISO view itself has Quote and Multi-Quote buttons inside it, which will make it very easy to quickly quote a lot of a player's posts for analysis or commentary:


    MULTI-ISOLATING

    If you wish to read not just one player's posts, but you want to ISO multiple players, then click the "Multi ISO" button to the left of "Game Tools" and select the players in question as shown here:


    MULTI-QUOTING WHILE THREAD IS LOCKED

    Note that you can multi-quote posts from even locked game threads. This is useful for when you wish to reread the game and do work during night phases.

    After quoting the relevant posts, you simply open a different, opened thread and press "Go Advanced". Then add the quotes to your post by clicking the prompt below the post area as shown here:



    Now, of course you can't post your work in the game thread while the thread is locked, but you can copy paste and save your work to a local file or the cloud and have it ready to post the very next day phase (if you're still alive, that is).

    BOOKMARKS

    Whenever you open a game thread, you are able to bookmark posts. This is for many players an important tool for keeping track of and remembering vital pieces of information, reads, claims etc.

    Also, note that these bookmarks are saved to your user account, meaning that it eliminates the trouble associated with keeping notes between different computers/devices.

    If you want to bookmark a post, you simply scroll to the post that you want to bookmark and press "Set Bookmark" as shown here:



    This will call up 5 different colored icons (Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, and Black) on the right side of the post in question. You can click any of these icons, which will then prompt you to include a note for the post.

    If you don't want to include a note, you don't have to - just leave it blank. The color coding in itself can be a valuable tool. Maybe you want to use Red bookmarks for posts that you find suspicious, Green bookmarks for posts that you find townie, Black bookmarks for posts containing claims, or whatever system you can think of that will be helpful to you.



    Once this is done, you have now successfully bookmarked a post with a certain color and maybe even a note. If you wish to remove the bookmark again, click on "Unset Bookmark".

    How do I access bookmarks?

    There are two ways to access your bookmarks.
    1. Inside a game thread, you can access the bookmarks for that specific game by simply right clicking on the "Bookmark" button and opening the link.

      This will bring you to a separate page that is automatically filtered to only show bookmarks from the game thread that you accessed the page from.
    2. You can also access your bookmarks by going to Features in the site's top menu:



      This will bring you to a page where no bookmarks are shown by default. However, you have several filtering options.

      You can filter by Game, by Player and by Color - and all of them at once if you so wish.

      Here's an example of filtering by only red bookmarks in one specific game:



    If you want to be taken directly to one of your bookmarked posts, you just click the post number.

    How do I quote bookmarks?

    You can also multi-quote bookmarked posts by clicking the little "+" button seen above on the far right side of each bookmark.

    Once you have multi-quoted all the bookmarked posts that you want to quote, you will then have to go to the game thread in which you wish to quote the bookmarked posts.

    Here you have two ways of quoting the posts.

    1. Click on "Reply With Quote" on another post as shown here:



      You will then probably want to delete the last post quoted in the reply box, but otherwise you should be good to go.
    2. Or you can do the more smooth option and click the "Reply To Thread" button at the top and bottom of the game thread - as shown here:



      By doing this you will open up a reply box containing only your multi-quoted bookmarked posts.

    There was a mistake in the modbot settings for the first rand. You are using the second PM. If you want help verifying what your real role is, PM me.

    By a hair's slip, you have avoided facing the fearsome Sherlock Holmes in his splendid mafia self.

    You will be felicitated for having such a man aligned with you. I can sense the wolves' trembling of fear and screaming of despair for not having the Great Sherlock Holmes with them!

    But if Phighter comes into the thread SUPER HAPPY it's because he randed wolf twice in a row.

    You will be felicitated for having such a man aligned with you. I can sense the wolves' trembling of fear and screaming of despair for not having the Great Sherlock Holmes with them!
    You're not allowed to use words over 4 syllables long in a Light game, yanno o.O
    There are many words you and I have yet to learn, my friend. Expanding our vocabulary is no easy task, and but it's a rewarding one.

    I went from being a goddamn wolf in my favorite role (mafia tracker, what what) to town in the rerand >_<

    We have 50 posts per 35 (not 36 -- post limit gets lifted the last hour of the day) hours. That's 1.42 posts per hour.

    Being at like, 10 posts --- in the $#@!post phase -- is bad.

    ___________________

    Anywho, Merry Christmas everybody. My gift to you is that I finally randed town in a light game and will thenceforth be carrying this group to being one of the only town crews to win a light game in 2018.

    Here's how/why I'm able to lynch people as a wolf in these games:
    - Wolfy villagers
    - Lying villagers
    - Egotistical villagers
    - Tunneling villagers
    - Villagers who don't try enough (notice how I didn't say hard)
    - Villagers who miss EOD (if you have a valid reason, i.e. RL or that EOD is at like, 3am, that's different)
    - Villagers who don't understand PRs
    - Villagers who use terminology incorrectly
    - Villagers who out their PR too early

    Here's how we fix these problems:

    Wolfy villagers -- if you have a thought process, even if it's goddamn crazy, explain it. Bonus points if you can grab quotes/develop an ISO to back it up. There's no penalty for being wrong in this game (besides lynching villagers and using PRs incorrectly, obviously) -- but sometimes the quieter players in a given game actually have really good thought processes but because they aren't loud enough, the ideas don't get spread. And then wolves kinda bully over their incomplete thought processes, call them fake, and get them lynched.

    Lying villagers -- if you're going to lie and you think that's the best way to play as town, you're doing this wrong. The liars are supposed to be the wolves. We do not win games on MU when villagers lie to villagers. You can admit ignorance, admit mistakes, admit that you're lazy as $#@! and made a bad assumption -- but do not lie.

    Egotistical villagers -- if you deserve the right to brag/have swag, you can, but that usually comes with actually lynching wolves or having built a reputation. If you've done neither here, your $#@! does still stink, and your lack of listening is going to be your downfall and get you lynched.

    Tunneling villagers -- try not to deathtunnel people. I know, I'm a giant hypocrite with my usertitle, but you should TRY to listen to logic if other people come around and tell you that maybe you're just hyperfocused on one person/they could be town for X reasons/and then ask you to look elsewhere or explain other reads. Chances are the other person is right more often than just a wolf trying to get you off their mate's ass.

    Villagers who don't try enough -- the post limit is 50. If you are going to post under half of that this entire game because of X reasons, please let us know now. Underposters are hardest to figure out/most likely to cost us the game (i.e., unfortunately, elijah in the last game finally deciding to care too late). If you signed up, I don't need you to be a rocking hero -- post enough that I can think you're town, post decent thought processes that show that you're trying, and we'll nail this game. We don't need perfect here. We just need effort.

    Villagers who don't make EOD -- real life is the exception. Obviously. But if you're missing EOD, please tell us ahead of time. It's extra hard to coordinate with villagers who aren't going to be there. Granted, if your real life is going to be more exciting than EOD itself, that's totally fine, but again, give some sort of heads-up at the very least.

    Villagers who don't understand PRs -- don't understand one? Ask!! Think there's a nuance you're missing? Look it up or really, really covertly ask.

    Villagers who use terminology incorrectly -- the only time someone is "clear" is through mechanical info, and even then some people can $#@! up with their understanding of PRs. If you call someone clear or "lock town", and they're not lock town -- wolves LOVE to sit in this territory. You think it's fine because you know what you mean (you strongly believe they are town), but someone who's playing with less time/less understanding of the game than you reads "oh so and so is clear" and never develops their own thought processes/copys and pastes that thought process into their mind and by the time they realize they $#@!ed up (if they do, which sometimes doesn't even happen) it's too late.

    Villagers who out their PR too early -- in set-ups like this, wolves are hunting through the town trying to look through and kill the PRs. If you ARE a role, do not claim until both A and B) A) it's close to EOD, and B) you have multiple votes on you/reasonably could be a lynch. The exceptions to this are C) your powers have granted you great insight into who is a wolf -- i.e. a tracker tracks someone to the NK, a cop with a redpeek, you jailkept and no night kill occurred, etc.. And D) a wolf is claiming your role -- if you're not a vigilante, counterclaiming them is generally fine. Because if they're town and claiming your role and they're not that role, they've already lied to the village and deserve to die for $#@!ing us over.

    Any questions, @ me, I'll be around.

    __________

    Is Phighter a wolf?

    I am a goddamn scary wolf. Go check out the November Light Game, Darkest Mafia (which I think is in manual games), or the Super Smash Bros Mash if you need a wolf game to compare me too. Most players here will be paranoid of me the entire time -- that's what I expect with the territory. My goal is to town my ass off and then make sure that they can't get me mislynched.

    But I'mma tell you I hella would NOT tell you all of my wolf tricks up front if I was a wolf here. That'd be dumb as $#@! OR a little too slick for my liking. I'm a slick SOB, but this post was not worth the towniness I could have just earned by $#@!posting and talking about my personal life instead.

    Also, if you liked this post, let me know --- I kind of want to write a full-fledged, Phighter-sarcasm/humor filled, article on the subject of powerwolfing/wolfing in general. This probably falls into its own section about weak villagers and how to capitalize on them.


    Anywho, annoyingly as hell, I randed town this game.

    Last game I nailed all three wolves by the end of d1 but got lynched for it.

    Let's gimme a day/flip to confirm I know what I'm talking about, eh?

    If El doesn't town it up in like, three posts, lynch them, they're just scum.

    If there's scum who has already posted, it's Jack. Jack trying to question an opening GIF that isn't Manti's hat-tip is strugglecity.

    In before this is Mercedes doing a character

    If it's not, hello, welcome, guessing you'd be actually new then

    So the way this set up works is that they roll repeatedly, and it's usually not the same between any two games (at least with a long enough pause in between those two games

    So the odds that the rand hit the exact same way for the wolves is low

Granted, if your real life is going to be more exciting than EOD itself, that's totally fine, but again, give some sort of heads-up at the very least.

    Villagers who don't understand PRs -- don't understand one? Ask!! Think there's a nuance you're missing? Look it up or really, really covertly ask.

    Villagers who use terminology incorrectly -- the only time someone is "clear" is through mechanical info, and even then some people can $#@! up with their understanding of PRs. If you call someone clear or "lock town", and they're not lock town -- wolves LOVE to sit in this territory. You think it's fine because you know what you mean (you strongly believe they are town), but someone who's playing with less time/less understanding of the game than you reads "oh so and so is clear" and never develops their own thought processes/copys and pastes that thought process into their mind and by the time they realize they $#@!ed up (if they do, which sometimes doesn't even happen) it's too late.

    Villagers who out their PR too early -- in set-ups like this, wolves are hunting through the town trying to look through and kill the PRs. If you ARE a role, do not claim until both A and B) A) it's close to EOD, and B) you have multiple votes on you/reasonably could be a lynch. The exceptions to this are C) your powers have granted you great insight into who is a wolf -- i.e. a tracker tracks someone to the NK, a cop with a redpeek, you jailkept and no night kill occurred, etc.. And D) a wolf is claiming your role -- if you're not a vigilante, counterclaiming them is generally fine. Because if they're town and claiming your role and they're not that role, they've already lied to the village and deserve to die for $#@!ing us over.

    Any questions, @ me, I'll be around.

    Is Phighter a wolf?

    I am a goddamn scary wolf. Go check out the November Light Game, Darkest Mafia (which I think is in manual games), or the Super Smash Bros Mash if you need a wolf game to compare me too. Most players here will be paranoid of me the entire time -- that's what I expect with the territory. My goal is to town my ass off and then make sure that they can't get me mislynched.

    But I'mma tell you I hella would NOT tell you all of my wolf tricks up front if I was a wolf here. That'd be dumb as $#@! OR a little too slick for my liking. I'm a slick SOB, but this post was not worth the towniness I could have just earned by $#@!posting and talking about my personal life instead.

    Also, if you liked this post, let me know --- I kind of want to write a full-fledged, Phighter-sarcasm/humor filled, article on the subject of powerwolfing/wolfing in general. This probably falls into its own section about weak villagers and how to capitalize on them.


    Anywho, annoyingly as hell, I randed town this game.

    Last game I nailed all three wolves by the end of d1 but got lynched for it.

    Let's gimme a day/flip to confirm I know what I'm talking about, eh?

    We have 50 posts per 35 (not 36 -- post limit gets lifted the last hour of the day) hours. That's 1.42 posts per hour.

    Being at like, 10 posts --- in the $#@!post phase -- is bad.

    ___________________

    Anywho, Merry Christmas everybody. My gift to you is that I finally randed town in a light game and will thenceforth be carrying this group to being one of the only town crews to win a light game in 2018.

    Here's how/why I'm able to lynch people as a wolf in these games:
    - Wolfy villagers
    - Lying villagers
    - Egotistical villagers
    - Tunneling villagers
    - Villagers who don't try enough (notice how I didn't say hard)
    - Villagers who miss EOD (if you have a valid reason, i.e. RL or that EOD is at like, 3am, that's different)
    - Villagers who don't understand PRs
    - Villagers who use terminology incorrectly
    - Villagers who out their PR too early

    Here's how we fix these problems:

    Wolfy villagers -- if you have a thought process, even if it's goddamn crazy, explain it. Bonus points if you can grab quotes/develop an ISO to back it up. There's no penalty for being wrong in this game (besides lynching villagers and using PRs incorrectly, obviously) -- but sometimes the quieter players in a given game actually have really good thought processes but because they aren't loud enough, the ideas don't get spread. And then wolves kinda bully over their incomplete thought processes, call them fake, and get them lynched.

    Lying villagers -- if you're going to lie and you think that's the best way to play as town, you're doing this wrong. The liars are supposed to be the wolves. We do not win games on MU when villagers lie to villagers. You can admit ignorance, admit mistakes, admit that you're lazy as $#@! and made a bad assumption -- but do not lie.

    Egotistical villagers -- if you deserve the right to brag/have swag, you can, but that usually comes with actually lynching wolves or having built a reputation. If you've done neither here, your $#@! does still stink, and your lack of listening is going to be your downfall and get you lynched.

    Tunneling villagers -- try not to deathtunnel people. I know, I'm a giant hypocrite with my usertitle, but you should TRY to listen to logic if other people come around and tell you that maybe you're just hyperfocused on one person/they could be town for X reasons/and then ask you to look elsewhere or explain other reads. Chances are the other person is right more often than just a wolf trying to get you off their mate's ass.

    Villagers who don't try enough -- the post limit is 50. If you are going to post under half of that this entire game because of X reasons, please let us know now. Underposters are hardest to figure out/most likely to cost us the game (i.e., unfortunately, elijah in the last game finally deciding to care too late). If you signed up, I don't need you to be a rocking hero -- post enough that I can think you're town, post decent thought processes that show that you're trying, and we'll nail this game. We don't need perfect here. We just need effort.

    Villagers who don't make EOD -- real life is the exception. Obviously. But if you're missing EOD, please tell us ahead of time. It's extra hard to coordinate with villagers who aren't going to be there. Granted, if your real life is going to be more exciting than EOD itself, that's totally fine, but again, give some sort of heads-up at the very least.

    Villagers who don't understand PRs -- don't understand one? Ask!! Think there's a nuance you're missing? Look it up or really, really covertly ask.

    Villagers who use terminology incorrectly -- the only time someone is "clear" is through mechanical info, and even then some people can $#@! up with their understanding of PRs.

    First off I just saw you wolf in a mash so I may be hyper aware of your wolfiness

    But like wolves have to come in and like the hardest posts of the game for wolves are always the first because they have no idea how to tonally come in and be effective

    Your post doesn't feel like an RVS, and you feel completely serious... about a GIF. That's a weird thing for someone to grab onto out the gate. I'm gonna be watching you for that, unless you show me different. Consider it just lightly there as a mental note for myself.

    (lol when you try to leave fakeclaims to eat a NK (night kill) and then you roll up and check the set-up and realize there are no watchers)

    There are only TWO OR THREE WAYS you could possibly know that, so I'll tinfoil over them for now and worry about you later.

    Anyway, this makes me WATSON, aka The Brains.
    It is great to meet you, Watson.

    I shall now guess that the power roles the wolves possess are Roleblocker, Tracker and Goon.
    In before this is Mercedes doing a character

    If it's not, hello, welcome, guessing you'd be actually new then

    So the way this set up works is that they roll repeatedly, and it's usually not the same between any two games (at least with a long enough pause in between those two games

    So the odds that the rand hit the exact same way for the wolves is low
    I understand it.

    In fact, seeming that the 3 of us have become town with this rerand, it's fair to assume the wolves' power roles have changed as well.

    As of now, Sherlock Holmes will read your alignment through your breath, your grammar, your vocabulary, your wording, your pushes, your intentions, your capitalization, your votes, your number of posts. And through that analysis, you are indubitably town, my friend.

    Now, before I lose my hait through scratching my head, do explain to me, if you please. What is the meaning of pocketing in this context?

    Errrrr... oh-kayyy. I don't think half of those things are alignment-indicative though.

    As for what pocketing means... basically it's when a scum tries to get on a townie's good side, to make them townread them.

    well it was an rvs, and not serious at all. mostly because i'm conscious of having a post limit

    UMMMMMMMMMMMM

    Anyway, now that I've had a think about it, I really don't like that Sherlock seems to think that punctuation/grammar/etc. are things you can read someone based on. In fact, in my first-ever game, I, as scum, tried to justify a townread (on someone who was actually town) by saying that her misspelling words and stuff was more likely to come from carefree town than overly careful scum. Essentially, I was reaching for reasons to townread someone that I knew was town.

    Let's give this a try.

Role of the Day
Pirate Baker

The Pirate Baker may each night target another living player and bake a piece of bread formed after their ability. This action will also roleblock the targeted player and prevent them from using their night action. On the following night, the Pirate Baker may pass their bread to another player, which will allow that person to use the ability that the bread was formed after. The Pirate Baker cannot use their own bread.
