    Lol

    Yeah I'm literally writing the OP so I can't exactly go "I can drop this one because it's already in the OP"
    Willing to drop things like Lag's avatar at the end of their nomination that really don't add anything to the nom but there are a limited number of those

    What else is there to say on this? The game speaks for itself, as a fun and fresh new concept on the mafia scene!!!! With town bringing their top tier solving skills while keeping their arguments concise and letting their votes speaker louder than their cases, and mafia playing their tactical best by keeping close tabs on the gamestate while seeming entirely relaxed... they played very well to counter town, managing to bring the game home in an F7!! 10/10 game, would absolutely love a runback!!!
    lmao second

    Nominating @Garden Gnome in The Raven: A Light Game! for Best Flavour (single game)

    The elegantly verbose Garden Gnome delivered once again in this game, chronicling the tale of a raven and its shenanigans observing a lonely poet's descent into insanity!!! Nevermore... I'll let some particularly cool bits speak for themselves:

    Quote Originally Posted by Garden Gnome (#774)

He grabbed for a cup that was sitting on a pile of books on a table next to him, and he gulped down some liquid. But what, I don't know. He seemed to be desperate for that liquid. In fact, everything that he did seemed to be borne of desperation. He grimaced in odd ways, almost as if he didn't remember how to smile. Then he spoke and his voice sounded rusty, as if it had been years since he had spoken to anyone.

    “Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,”the creaky-voiced man said, “art sure no craven,
    Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore—
    Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!”

    Why should I tell him such an intimate detail about me? No human can ever know a bird's real name. They can give us names but their names are limited by the fact that they are Earth bound. We soar high above them, and our names reflect our ascendance to the skies. But the humans can never know our secrets. I could never explain that to the man. A book fell off of his lap, and I responded to him, "Nevermore."

    The man was so startled that he spilled the remainder of his beverage onto the carpet.
    Quote Originally Posted by Garden Gnome (#2936)
    Late at night, the man finally got himself some bread and cheese and a glass of ale. He sat on his chair, surrounded by books, and he read from the paper that he wrote. He seemed afflicted, not himself. He also jumped at the sight of water, as if terrified by the sight of it. When he drank his ale and ate his bread and cheese, he coughed and sputtered, seemingly unable to swallow anything. In a raspy voice, the man looked directly at me and read a few verses from the poem that he was composing.

    This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing
    To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom’s core;
    This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining
    On the cushion’s velvet lining that the lamp-light gloated o’er,
    But whose velvet-violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o’er,
    She shall press, ah, nevermore!

    Who is she??? Where is this she???? I was going to say something, to ease the man's loneliness, but he just kept on reading, almost as if I weren't there.

    Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer
    Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor.
    “Wretch,” I cried, “thy God hath lent thee—by these angels he hath sent thee
    Respite—respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore;
    Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe and forget this lost Lenore!”
    Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”

    He was yelling and crying and, yes, the air seemed to grow denser, as if there were a sudden storm approaching. The man obviously expected me to say something. He was staring at me, expectantly, and all I could do was croak "Nevermore." I used to know more words but, since the human who taught me to speak had died, I could only remember "Nevermore."

    The man was weeping profusely as he read: “Prophet!” said I, “thing of evil!—prophet still, if bird or devil!—
    Whether Tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
    Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted—
    On this home by Horror haunted—tell me truly, I implore—
    Is there—is there balm in Gilead?—tell me—tell me, I implore!”
    Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”

    Nevermore, nevermore, nevermore, nevermore... I said over and over again, as the man fell into a deep sleep, maybe induced by the ale that he had been drinking all day, despite the fact that drinking had become increasingly difficult for him as time went by. I continued to stand guard on top of the bust of Pallas just above the man's chamber door. I had seen rats freely run in and out of the building. And at least one of them had bitten the man. He murmured and fell back to sleep.
    Quote Originally Posted by Garden Gnome (#3305)

    Is there—is there balm in Gilead?—tell me—tell me, I implore!”
    Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”

    The man was becoming more and more agitated, calling out for Lenore over and over again. Occasionally, he would mentioned the name "Annabelle Lee." He was pacing the floor, not looking at me, not looking at anything. Suddenly, there was a loud rap on the door. The man looked confused, but opened the door.

    "What? Are you drunk?" asked the visitor. "You don't look good. Have you been writing? What have you written?"

    The man picked up a piece of paper and began reading in a shaky voice. "Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary..."

    "You do look weak and weary. And thirsty. I brought you some fresh water. You need to drink..."

    The poet struck his visitor and sent the cup of water flying. He screamed in terror at the sight of the water. His visitor saw that the man was afraid of water. "Were you bitten by the rat that got into your house last week?"

    The poet said nothing. He just stared.

    The visitor ran out of the house and down the street, yelling that no one should go into the poet's house.

    Schweppes, who died, was the cup of water.

    Find out more about our cast of characters below. We have more information we will share in-time, on a case-by-case and need-to-know basis. Of course, if anyone dies, that might be when. But I cannot confirm that yet. Maybe. Who knows. Nobody will die, though, because they're all mature, well-established and thoughtful do-gooders, who cannot be bought.

    Captain Colony

    John Smith, AKA Captain Colony, accidentally stumbled upon a time machine after crossing the Delaware River. Curious, he strapped it to his wrist and teleported forward in time 200+ years.

    Cats

    Simon, Lucky, Mr. Mittens, Bean, Daisy, Bubbles, Kiwi, CocoPuss, AKA Cats, are cats. Little is known about their true identities or their power(s).

    Count Chicken

    Dennis Barker, AKA Count Chicken, claims he knows the secret to the universe. This has not been confirmed (or denied). While he often keeps to himself, he can sometimes be heard mumbling oddities at inconvenient times, and fails in social situations more often than he would like to admit.

    Knight Blue

    Jan Bothi XXXIII (33), AKA Knight Blue, found themselves on Earth through grave circumstances we cannot yet detail here, and fell in love with Knights. Upon this realization, he became a hero to model his favorite justice-seeking Knights.

    Peaceful Prince

    Chris Ful, AKA Peaceful Prince, was raised by the world-renowned Super Hero Duo, father Fighting Fire and mother, Incredible Ice. Born with a twin sister, he hopes to carry on his family's legacy using peace and kindness.

    Powerful Princess

    Christina Ful, AKA Peaceful Princess, was raised by the world-renowned Super Hero Duo, father Fighting Fire and mother, Incredible Ice. Born with a twin brother, she hopes to carry on her family's legacy using power and conviction.

    Say Cheese!

    Katelyn Leibovitz, AKA Say Cheese! found an old camera in her grandmother’s attic, soon becoming a local hero at a young age. She rollerblades to those in need and freezes enemies in place with the snap of her powerful photography.

    Sociological Seer

    EB-349-A, AKA Sociological Seer, was created in a lab designed to help humanity solve problems. After the lab lost its funding the Sociological Seer was let go. It computed that fighting crime was the best way to fulfil its original programming.

    Spaceship Cowboy

    Yomoxo Equin, AKA Spaceship Cowboy, is from a space-race not of this galaxy. He arrived on Earth attempting to wrangle a stray meteor shower, and now spends his time searching for love.

    Tasty Fingers

    Hunter Vinder, AKA Tasty Fingers, discovered his love for food and hunting through a college hunting and cooking class he took because a friend didn’t want to take it alone. He hunts evil- doers to pay for his massive appetite for justice and BBQ ribs.

    Tha'toglock the Elder God of Payment

    Tha'toglock the Elder God of Payment, AKA Tha'toglock the Elder God of Payment, after traveling the cosmos collecting near infinite wealth, arrived on Earth to do the same only to realize he was underaged in human years. Terrified of the American prison system he chooses to make deals granting his cosmic powers to mortals in exchange for earthly treasures.

    The Alcohol Thaumaturgist

    Smeezel Humbert, AKA The Alcohol Thaumaturgist, was once a well respected brewer within Universe City, back in the day. In a taste-testing gone wrong, his wife and family were killed by an evil wizard, so he sought revenge. He often squabbles with Knight Blue.

    The Ephemeral Shinobi

    Juniper Weeping, AKA The Ephemeral Shinobi, was born into a family of ninjas through ancient Japanese magic many, many moons ago. They are the last surviving member of it’s clan, and will protect life at any cost, as they believe it is fleeting.

    The Furry

    Brittany Murphy, AKA The Furry, discovered in 4th grade that she could control her own and other people’s hair telekinetically, shortly before growing a horrible un-shavable mustache. Hopefully it will go away soon, but until then she's constantly embarrassed by it. Please don't bring it up.

    Total Obliteration

    Todd Anderson, AKA Total Obliteration, discovered his power at a young age. Since, he has amassed a massive debt through use of his power, destroying entire city blocks at a time. He wears a jacket covered in ads to try and offset the cost of his destruction.

    Officer: It's that time of the month?

    Beck: It is. But this time, it will be different. I've been planning this conversations for a long time, and I'm going in prepared. When I get back we'll finally be in control.

    I grabbed a folder off my desk and opened it up.




    Oops, wrong folder. That's my file. Life as Dr. Prof. Detective can get extremely busy, between the operations, the instructions, and the investigating.

    I grabbed another folder. Yes, this is the one I need. Motwell Gluggerous, my arch-nemesis.




    I set out to visit Micromanaging Manatee and the Manatee Men at his Manatee Manor located deep in the back of The Aquarium. There, I would confront his crime syndicate and begin Universe City's respiration project, finally...

    ~~~

    My footsteps filled the empty Aquarium halls as I approached a large door. I pushed it ajar like I had many times before, and there he lay.

    Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men: Ah, Hansen. Or should I say, Dr. Prof. Detective? What a pleasant surprise!

    Beck: I have no time for your schmoozing, Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men. You know why I'm here. Universe City's crime has been rising steadily, and I know you're to blame!

    Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men: Oh, glub glub! But have you any proof? And even if it were little, old me, how could you stop me?

    *Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men takes a long puff from his kelp cigar, smitten with himself.*

    Beck: I won't stop you. Alone, that is. But I've assembled a cast of Heroes across our galaxy to save Universe City from your slimy fins.

    *Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men takes another long puff from his kelp cigar, and rolls his head back in laughter.*

    Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men: You stupid, stupid fool. You see, Dr. Prof. Detective, or whatever you like to call yourself. You're a Loser. You shall never win. How do you know your Heroes can even be trusted?! How do you know I haven't gotten to them first?! You would be surprised how little kelp it costs to buy a Hero's allegiance. But I suppose you will discover that yourself soon enough!

    My mind began to spin. Was I doing the right thing? Or is he bluffing? Could I actually trust the Heroes I had meticulously assembled? Or would I end up having to... Save Universe City from itself?

    Nominating @roro__b in Season 8, Semifinals 1: Tup and the Haunted Ballad for Best Flavour (single game)

    The spooky story to end all spooky stories - a story following the two siblings Tup and Tut, from a remote village hidden in the forest, and the strange circumstances they find themselves in... overall extremely well written throughout!!!! This is just the beginning, and it gets better:

    This is a story that tells us about the people of a remote village, hidden deep in a dense forest. A village that had seen generations upon generations pass, hidden away and isolated from the outside world. There had always been rumors about foreign cultures and people, but with close to no encounters to strengthen them, they have always remained just that.

    Throughout the ages, each family in the village had had their own specific area of proficiency. With the spirits of their ancestors to aid their proficiency in the art, it also served as their life-long profession. Hunters, carpenters, blacksmiths, herbalists, historians and many more trades were represented.

    Each evening in the village, there was a celebration. A celebration around a sacred bonfire, together with all the spirits of their ancestors, to maintain the strong ties that had been upheld across the centuries. Each evening, the family of storytellers gathered with them all around the fire and took turns to share captivating stories, sometimes deep into the night. Sometimes the stories told were of important historic value, like the ones about how the first Tree of the forest came to be, and sometimes the stories had no other purpose than to entertain.

    One particularly eerie story was told this specific night.

    A story about a song. It was sung by foreign creatures that had called upon the village many centuries ago. The strange beings sang for days upon days. About sorrow and despair, about joy and laughter. About life being created, but also taken away. Each word that was sung was also realized in the village. Enchanting as it was, the verses about joy brought joy - and the ones about sorrow brought sorrow unlike any other. Verses about death brought with it the passing of many villagers, while verses about new life being created led to life being brought about - with a myriad of plants, bugs, and larger animals appearing as if out of nowhere. When the foreign beings had finished singing their enchanting ballads, they simply left, never again to be seen.

    This incident had seen to it that the one, most sacred of rules was created. Music, in all its forms, was forbidden. Whenever someone would even accidentally hum even the slightest of melodies, it seemed to have such a bizarre effect on the surroundings that it was judged unsafe, and forbidden, for the safety of the village. The bards were forced to either find a new calling or were driven out, and the songs of old were all reworked into harmless stories to be told by mothers at bedtime, or during the evening bonfires.

    With the village busy with preparations for the evening feast, the children were playing a game of hide-and-seek.

    Tup and Tut, the only two children of the village forger, were headed in the same direction to find a hiding place. There were no limits for how far you were allowed to go in the game, but of course, hiding in plain sight would not do. They sprinted off to escape the lighter areas around the clearing and any other people that might draw attention to their position. Tup pointed at herself, and then at a particularly wide, hollow tree that she had used to hide many times before. Her brother understood her intention, and took off in a different direction. With autumn approaching, there were many dead leaves and twigs that she gathered around herself to hide her whereabouts as she settled herself half-lodged in the cavity that the tree offered.

    She had barely caught her breath before she could hear footsteps nearing her.

    "Tuuuuuuup! I know you are hiding in that stupid tree of yours again - you might as well come out!"

    Her heart nearly leaped out of her chest, with the intensity it was pounding - nobody besides Tut had ever seen her there, how could this be!

    She carefully peeked out of her hiding spot. She was well-hidden after all, and it was dark - but her friend would surely find her if she stayed.

    "Tuuuuup! Come ouuuut!"

    The words had a kind of ring to them that made her body shiver involuntarily. She wasn't sure what it was - but the scare it gave her was nearly equally as strong as the prospect of being found by her playmate.

    The echoing of the voice still permeated her surroundings as she prepared to leave her now compromised hiding place.

    She couldn't run towards her brother, nor towards the centre of the village either. She swallowed decisively - and swiftly moved out into the open air.

    "Tuuuup! Is that you making all those sounds? Come heee-eeeeere!!!"

    Once again, her body shivered intensely - but this time, before she had even processed where the words came from - she had found herself moving towards her pursuer. The words kept echoing in her head, as she fought to stop her body from moving towards him. She finally managed to make a full stop, but she knew that she was going to be found in an instance, the way this had gone. This wasn't what she had planned! How di-

    "Tup! I know where you are - you aren't even hiding! Are you scaaaaared?" He mocked.

    The words helped her snap out of it - and she decisively ran back towards her previous hiding spot, and then past it.

    "Stop running, Tup! You're being silly!"

    Tup didn't stop. She kept running until she was certain that she wouldn't be found. As she skidded to a halt, she scanned her surroundings and found a large rock that she thought was big enough to conceal her whereabouts. This was about as far as she had ever strayed from the village.

    She was both confused and frightened as she sat down to catch her breath again, as she thought back about how her body had just betrayed her. She had brief recollections of slightly similar incidents where the shivering had sometimes come over her - but never like this. Could the stories from the previous night be true?

    Yet again, the voice of her pursuer broke the silence of her surroundings.

    "Tup, please, just come back here, it's not safe this far out! I know you're around here somewhere."

    Her friend was far closer than she had expected, and as he rounded the rock, she instinctively reacted.

    "I am not heeeeeereeee! I am noooo-ooott heeeeeee-eeeeereeee!!" She chanted the words, with no real melody to them despite her best attempts, but it seemed to work out well enough.

    Her friend was standing right next to her - but seemed to be looking straight through her. His stare was hollow and he didn't seem to be aware of what was going on - he kept rounding the rock, and even as she had since long stopped her chanting, he kept moving as if in a trance back towards the village.

    The whole situation was so eerie that Tup decided she'd had enough.

    She got up and ran towards her friend.

    "Okay I'm sorry, you found me, you win!"

    She ran up to him and touched his shoulder, to which he reacted with a startle.

    "Who's there!?" he yelled out. It was apparent that he couldn't see her.

    In his shock he stumbled over a tree-root and fell over, but quickly hurried back up to his feet and took off towards the village, looking around himself in panic.

    Tup was left there standing, dumfounded. Her own words - I am not here - echoing in her head.

    Tup tried to keep up with the much bigger and faster boy, but with the evening getting darker, it was hard to find her footing and she kept stumbling over her own feet. Each time she managed to get back up, the boy seemed to have gotten a little further away from her. She had to stop yet again to catch her breath. Her eyes were clouded with tears and she was panting heavily, desperately, for some calming lungfuls of air.

    She quickly gave up trying to figure out in which direction the boy had run. She didn't recognize her surroundings, and the panic was starting to take over as she collapsed to the ground, huddling up against a tree.


    Among myriads of trees,
    lonely and cold

    Sang Tup the wise girl,
    A pitch purest of gold

    A pitch to enchant both friend and foe
    As we watch little Tup and her powers grow

    Now calm little girl
    No more tears you will cry

    Do not muse on this prophecy,
    No need to ask why

    Let us all return home,
    to your family and kin

    Let us follow your story
    that tonight will begin

    A story of greatness, both evil and not
    A story of powers the world had forgot

    A girl that can realise her deepest desires
    With the knowledge now found nothing else she requires


    Tup didn't notice the words being chanted, nor where they came from, but she immediately felt their soothing, calming effect - as if she had never been afraid, as if the whole incident had never taken place.

    Without any hesitation, she got up to her feet to return to the village and the evening festivities that were just about to begin, all the while humming to herself about how she from this point on would be anything but invisible.

    Nominating @Garden Gnome in Hydra Event 2021: Uncapped Game 10, This year will be different! for Best Flavour (single game)

    Perhaps the most entertaining and tastiest of Garden Gnome's flavours, I was definitely craving chocolate while reading through her flavour journaling attempts at trying (and generally failing) to keep to new year's resolutions!!! This is only the beginning, but all of it is just as hilarious:

    Quote Originally Posted by Garden Gnome (#3)

This time, I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna journal every day and lose weight and exercise and... who can do that much in a day? Oh. Eat chocolate. You know, mental health food. But not so much that I gain weight and become more sluggish than I am... feeling kind of sleepy. I really, really am going to keep my New Year's resolutions. All year! Okay, well, at least six months! And buy new clothes. Nice little clothes, and I won't rip out the seams when I put the cute little clothes on. Oooh, yes. I'm ready to start... um... soon. I'm so hyped for this. I'm keeping those resolutions. They're not just a pack of words on a page. This year will be different!!! Signed, the future svelte and strong gnome (see those weights on the floor? See my powerful muscles??? (maybe not, lol.)

    Quote Originally Posted by Garden Gnome (#6158)

It's a good thing that I didn't set humility as a New Year's resolution, lol. But anyway, what were the others? Oh, right. Eat chocolate. Mental health food. I am a really great keeper of New Year's resolutions. In one day, I ate two full boxes of Godiva Ballotin chocolates. Expensive as heck, but so totally worth it. All with classic Belgian fillings. I think that I was supposed to share that chocolate with the family? I kind of lost my mind after the first almond praline raindrop. I thought that I died and went to heaven.

    On the other hand, I didn't eat any nutritious meals, nor did I exercise, except to raise another chocolate to my lips.

    I need to make a new resolution.

    No drinking orange juice after brushing my teeth. Um. Ooops. I already brushed my teeth. And the orange juice is poured. I've got to drink it. How could I not? Maybe with a wee bit of vodka? Oooh, mixing a drink! Exercise.

    Hey!!!!

    Hey!!!!!

    The cat just pushed the glass of orange juice onto the floor. Now I get to clean it up, instead of drink it. Ugh. I need more chocolate.

    Mich-El, who died, was two boxes of expensive chocolates.




    Quote Originally Posted by Garden Gnome (#6159)
    Journal entry number three: So people were really upset about me eating up all of that expensive chocolate. And I wasn't done. I found, hidden in a closet, a box of Godiva gold. A big one with 150 pieces. It's so pricey that you can pay for it in installments. Oooh, more Belgian fillings. Unfortunately, I was caught attempting to taste test one of the pralines. The box went back into the closet, and I went to visit a friend, who urged me to make a new year's resolution that didn't involve chocolate. So, I did. My next new year's resolution was to try unusual foods, at least one time.

    Unfortunately, I told my friend. She said, "There's a new year's eve Bug Fest! Let's go to it. Lots of taste tests, and you'll love it."

    Taste tests at a bug fest? Okay. Well, maybe you get to look at all sorts of bugs living in some sort of bug habitat, and eat cheese and crackers and drink delicious wine. Mmm, wine.

    Not exactly. The bug fest was a food extravaganza. Well, if you can consider insects food. There were all sorts of ant delicacies. The only one that looked appealing was the chocolate covered ants, although why embellish upon chocolate? It's fine in its natural state. Then there were centipedes on a stick, deep fried cicadas, crickets served on a stick, deep fried grasshoppers, and more. This was a definite test of my new year's resolution to try unusual foods. I kind of, sort of succeeded. I did tentatively take a taste test or two. Most of it tasted pretty yuck, although the grasshopper was better than expected and, of course, the chocolate covered ants because... well, chocolate, although it wasn't exactly Godiva chocolate.

    This resolution could be hard to keep. On the other hand, if I taste test awful things for a year, I will lose weight, right??

    Or, at least, misplace it.

    Happy Doctor, who died, was a few chocolate covered ants. Plurality, who also died, was a deep fried grasshopper.

    - On the other hand, if your Hally remains in a photorealistic human form and responds calmly with phrases like "That's unfortunate, but I hope we can work together!" and changes the subject, you have an alien shapeshifter on your hands and should quickly excuse yourself and break the glass on the nearest eod flamethrower.

    I don't think it's a secret for most of you that my track record in reading Hally has been rather … well … awful thus far in our games. I did have one specific game where I recognized Hally was a villager and confidently (and happily!) let the world know. They flipped wolf. After our Syndicate game together and then Anni (both of which saw me find Hally's eod wolfy and press there) I wanted to make a concentrated effort to finally read that slot correctly.

    I spent some time today combing through recent-ish games this year of Hally's. The wolf game on the Org website, the Vig game over on the Syndicate one, and all sorts of mashes/smaller games through MU as well. Rocks fall, Anni, Homestuck, CoV, etc. You get the picture. All in all there were 16 different games I pulled isos from. I then went and ran through the isos extracting all the day one posts from the first half of the day, labeled them as W or V, and ran them through a bit of a homemade database that would do a few different things for me. One of the things was to make a word cloud which would count the number of times each word was used in these isos and make the word larger the more frequently it was used. For example:





    Anyways, I separated the wolf isos from the villa isos and then removed things like articles (a, the, in, an, etc) as well as player names as those aren't really super relevant to our investigation and cross referenced them to see if anything word usage stood out as alignment indicative in the top 10 most common words. While there were small word choices favored it didn't seem super significant. What WAS significant were two other things:

    One: While specific word choices weren't very telling I did notice a definitely trend of elegance in the wolf isos. The words may change but the idea remained the same. In wolf ISOs Hally had a habit of using larger, more elegant words whereas in the villa ISOs Hally just talked more casually. I'll call these Posts Exceedingly Elegant as we continue.

    Two: Villager isos were much more full of observational posts rather than inquisitive ones. The wolf iso was full of open ended questions requesting elaboration. Not just directly to a specific player but also towards the thread at large asking if it saw what Hally was seeing. Meanwhile the villager iso was full of more pointed statement. It was telling the thread what Hally was seeing and making sure everyone understood. The village iso had a higher frequency – by a significant margin – of Posts Of Observation.


    Again, I really want to get this right so I didn't stop there. Science isn't science until you write it down after all. I went ahead and charted the percentage of posts as a villager and as a wolf for both posts containing an elegant word and posts making observations. It's a bit crude but here's the quick jot down I made to visualize it:





    So I wanted to see how this one was shaping up. Remember, these were all taken from the first half of day one isos which we've made it past here. I went ahead and ran through Hally's iso from this game, plotted the elegance and observational percentages on the chart, and ran the following equation to try and determine the exact percentage chance Hally has at being a wolf:

    (Posts Exceedingly Elegant as a wolf)(Posts Exceedingly Elegant here) + (Posts of Observation as a villager)(Posts of Observation here) = the mathematical chance of Hally being a villager here (do 1-this for wolf obv).

    Which looks something like this:


    (Posts Exceedingly Elegant as a wolf)(Posts Exceedingly Elegant here) + (Posts of Observation as a villager)(Posts of Observation here)

    Or written differently

    While I'd love for that to be included it's on the CFC Subforum which isn't eligible for awards.
    That said, I think I'm gonna talk to @Dolby about doing something on the CFC Mafia discord server

    - On the other hand, if your Hally remains in a photorealistic human form and responds calmly with phrases like "That's unfortunate, but I hope we can work together!" and changes the subject, you have an alien shapeshifter on your hands and should quickly excuse yourself and break the glass on the nearest eod flamethrower.

    I don't think it's a secret for most of you that my track record in reading Hally has been rather … well … awful thus far in our games. I did have one specific game where I recognized Hally was a villager and confidently (and happily!) let the world know. They flipped wolf. After our Syndicate game together and then Anni (both of which saw me find Hally's eod wolfy and press there) I wanted to make a concentrated effort to finally read that slot correctly.

    I spent some time today combing through recent-ish games this year of Hally's. The wolf game on the Org website, the Vig game over on the Syndicate one, and all sorts of mashes/smaller games through MU as well. Rocks fall, Anni, Homestuck, CoV, etc. You get the picture. All in all there were 16 different games I pulled isos from. I then went and ran through the isos extracting all the day one posts from the first half of the day, labeled them as W or V, and ran them through a bit of a homemade database that would do a few different things for me. One of the things was to make a word cloud which would count the number of times each word was used in these isos and make the word larger the more frequently it was used. For example:





    Anyways, I separated the wolf isos from the villa isos and then removed things like articles (a, the, in, an, etc) as well as player names as those aren't really super relevant to our investigation and cross referenced them to see if anything word usage stood out as alignment indicative in the top 10 most common words. While there were small word choices favored it didn't seem super significant. What WAS significant were two other things:

    One: While specific word choices weren't very telling I did notice a definitely trend of elegance in the wolf isos. The words may change but the idea remained the same. In wolf ISOs Hally had a habit of using larger, more elegant words whereas in the villa ISOs Hally just talked more casually. I'll call these Posts Exceedingly Elegant as we continue.

    Two: Villager isos were much more full of observational posts rather than inquisitive ones. The wolf iso was full of open ended questions requesting elaboration. Not just directly to a specific player but also towards the thread at large asking if it saw what Hally was seeing. Meanwhile the villager iso was full of more pointed statement. It was telling the thread what Hally was seeing and making sure everyone understood. The village iso had a higher frequency – by a significant margin – of Posts Of Observation.


    Again, I really want to get this right so I didn't stop there. Science isn't science until you write it down after all. I went ahead and charted the percentage of posts as a villager and as a wolf for both posts containing an elegant word and posts making observations. It's a bit crude but here's the quick jot down I made to visualize it:





    So I wanted to see how this one was shaping up. Remember, these were all taken from the first half of day one isos which we've made it past here. I went ahead and ran through Hally's iso from this game, plotted the elegance and observational percentages on the chart, and ran the following equation to try and determine the exact percentage chance Hally has at being a wolf:

    (Posts Exceedingly Elegant as a wolf)(Posts Exceedingly Elegant here) + (Posts of Observation as a villager)(Posts of Observation here) = the mathematical chance of Hally being a villager here (do 1-this for wolf obv).

    Which looks something like this:


    (Posts Exceedingly Elegant as a wolf)(Posts Exceedingly Elegant here) + (Posts of Observation as a villager)(Posts of Observation here)

    Or written differently
