  1. Sorry for not being around - turns out I presently just don’t have the capacity to play SE. I’ll join the vote on The Unknown Order for now
  2. Simply because I have a mild gut read that they’re more likely to be an eliminator than Danex, and the Unknown Order doesn’t look to be up for the lynch, The Unknown Order, Ed Venture
  3. As far as I can tell this is the post behind the lynch on Danex. Beyond being slightly ridiculous, it doesn’t come across to me as massively suspicious - I read it as genuinely trying to be funny/silly. I’d be more inclined to vote on SeaDragonet, for suggesting that it’s suspicious that Danex chose the same target as last game, which I just can’t see - @SeaDragonet, would you mind explaining your rationale here?
  4. @Matrim's Dice, are we able to request an accurate vote count?
  5. As a counterpoint, the village rioter doesn’t have information as to the alignment of those on the lynch, whereas the eliminator soother knows exactly how they ought to act to guarantee a village lynch. I don’t think I am underplaying the impact on balance here. You’re right to point out roleblocking affects the soother, however - which I hadn’t considered, thinking only of its impact on kills.
  6. Formatted for clarity. I'm (obviously) not TJ, but in the absence of his response thought I'd engage with your discussion prompt. I'm unfamiliar with the new meta on this site, and so don't know current thinking on best practice for distribution with low player numbers. That said, we used to say 20-25%, or the square root of player numbers as a good rule of thumb for elim numbers. These give 2.6, 3.25, and 3.6 respectively. I think, as such, three eliminators is not unlikely. I recall QFs and MRs traditionally have a much higher eliminator win rate than LGs, which I always attributed to a lack of time for analysis - I would be inclined to suggest that lower player numbers will only heighten this trend. Were I GMing, I'd be looking at either a lower end eliminator team numbers wise, or a higher prevalence of protection items across the village to lengthen the game. This is exacerbated by the Soul Forger: If my reading of the rules is correct, we will start seeing at least two kills a cycle from cycle 3 onwards - I can see no reason why the Soul Forger would do anything other than begin creation of the Warrior essence mark immediately. That said, I think the Soul Forger is greatly incentivised to take out eliminators, rather than villagers. If we mislynch this cycle and next, with two unprotected eliminator kills, we could be looking at 5 villagers to three eliminators and a serial killer going into cycle three - and the eliminators have vote manipulation. This hasn't multiquoted properly, so I'll break down the parts I want to comment on with quotes myself (Unknown Order's comments in bold) Not an awful lot said in the analysis thus far. Of interest to me, however, is the absence of comments on lynch thresholds and ties. The rules are explicit that the eliminators have a vote canceller, which (until they're killed) means that tied lynches ought only to result in a village death. Fairly surface level analysis here. The assertion that the Serial Killer would start with a double life is interesting, though. @The Unknown Order you rightly identify that this would make them stronger, which you argue as a reason for them to start with it. I'd be curious to hear why you think strengthening the Soul Forger is necessary, and your thoughts on the implications for game balance? It interests me that you consistently use language saying things are standard, even when you go on to acknowledge they're not - "although it is random". To me, it reads that you're trying to give the impression of analysing, without doing so. You further also downplay the importance of the vote canceller for the eliminators. I don't think we should underestimate this for a moment, given it ensures the village lose every tie, and lylo can appear a cycle earlier. I'm not going to quote the rest of your post - I think there's enough so far for me to retract on Tani and vote on The Unknown Order. That may well be the case, but announcing to the thread your disappointment feels performative to me, and so raises my suspicions. Similarly to my thoughts on Tani, elements of this feel performative, although I like that the analysis focuses more on implications than that of The Unknown Order. I would question, though, your reluctance to see vigilante kills used. Historically, vigilante kills are more accurate than the lynch, and we need eliminator deaths if we want to win. It's been a while since I played properly , and I think you went on a mission at some point didn't you? I would be very, very surprised if the eliminators had a way to kill in addition to their normal kill. If we have 9-3-1, or even 10-2-1, we're not many cycles from an early LyLo, given the eliminator vote cancelling potential. Edit: Vote Count: TJ - (1): Ashwastaken Danex - (1): Araris Tani - (0): Orlok <1> Mage - (1): Ed Venture Ed Venture - (1): Mage TJ - (1): Danex The Unknown Order - (1): Orlok <2>
  7. Count me out for the foreseeable - I'm testing the waters playing a game again, and will see how that goes (and possibly a few more) before I commit to GMing again.
  8. That’s good to know, and probably means it’s not alignment indicative, although I’d like to hear from @Tani themselves before I retract my vote.
  9. Tani. Stating that they’re a villager and appealing for sympathy for doing so raises my hackles enough for a D1 lynch vote.
  10. Hi all. Has been a busy and torrid few days. I'll be more likely to be around tomorrow, but if Straw has a pinch hitter lined up, please do replace me.
  11. As always, I shall play as Locke Tekiel.
  12. It’s 5am, and I should be asleep, but on the early game “townslip”, which I agree is noteworthy @Illwei, I see two possibilities. The first, and likeliest I think is that it is genuine - certainly that was my initial read of it, from which I’ve village read James so far this game. That said, knowing him @Breaker, how likely do you think James is to make such a play given their off-site experience? Gut tells me not so likely - if he was going for such a move, my feeling is that he would also try to underplay his experience.
  13. Back to the grindstone now, albeit tired and slightly tipsy whilst I work. What makes you think I might be yellow Ajah? Analysis from the first eight pages: Analysis of the following four pages: 202 C1 202 Liranil Asks for vote count. Says Breaker and Gears claiming each other as Aes Sedai and Warder. Suspects they areas they claim due to coordination. Thinks James village. Gut suspicious of Condensation. Clearly reads RP posts. Agree re James. Known villager 203 C1 203 TJ Shade Vote count (shows Dannex clearly in the lead) GM Evil 204 C1 204 The Unknown Order Has caught up with thread. Doesn't have reads. Has a PM.

Thinks Dannex being aggressive is a town tell for them. Thinks Condensation's behaviour NAI. Village reads for Dannex, Reading, James, lean for Matrim. Elim leans for Liranil, Order, and TJ confirmed elim. Votes on Liranil for sheeping consensus reads. Thinks differs from first game playstyle. Order feels like newer elim. Striker a gut read as posts confused Good to know more re Dannex's historical playstyle. Agree wholeheartedly wrt read on TJ. Liranil now confirmed village. Striker confirmed evil.

Says she has been close to being lynched for not voting, hence behaviour change. Feels genuine, sensible reason for changing playstyle NAI 220 C1 220 Liranil Says did vote earlier, on Gears. More suspicious of Dannex than others with votes. Retracts from Gears, votes on Dannex. Fair explanation. Known villager Dannex Gears 221 C1 221 Gears Highlights reel of thread. Consensus that there is a single village vig. Matrim sus of Dannex based on their views on Illwei, which Dannex should be familiar with. Reading sus of Dannex based on gut. Condensation joins vote without reasoning. James sus of Dannex based on tone. Says James tunneling, this site very casual. Matrim suspicious of Condensation for jumping on Dannex lynch.

Mld village read on Matrim, Ash, Reading, James, Dannex. Most suspicious of Liranil, Lotus, Flyingbooks, Striker Elims #2,3 in suspicion list. Distancing or genuine? Probably moderate village 300 C1 300 Dannex Votes Liranil out of self-preservation. Suggests they should be left alive due to role claim. Explains thread very active when first posted. Thinks vanilla knowledge important due to distribution. Says elims won't kill a vanilla. Apologises for aggressive tone of posts. Self pres vote makes sense if values role so highly. Disagree vehemently with meta that suggests we value roles over players. Also disagree with logic re vanilla players. GMs are, as a rule, trolls. Very very difficult to predict distro as a player accurately enough for the game. If vanillas, will be killed or lynched in time, and no urgency behind information. Feels like genuinely held belief, however, so whilst I disagree strongly with the argument, feel less like they are elim because of it Mild village Liranil 301 C1 301 Gears Suggests worth noting Ashbringer's vote as suspicious. Ashbringer known villager. No reasoning why. Mild evil. In short, I'm getting there, slowly. Planning to get up to the halfway point by the end of my day, and then fully up to speed tomorrow. As is clear in my analysis, I am struggling to read Breaker, but their post recently claiming gives me a bad feeling - the edits particularly, and the uncertainty read as "put on", not genuine.

Known villager 192 C1 192 James Brafin Very polite with regards to pronouns etc NAI NAI 193 C1 193 Burnt Spaghetti Is lost, suggests taking notes on read through Notes are, indeed, helpful NAI 194 C1 194 Matrim's Dice Suggests application of known strategy reads of less value on site where mafia played more casually. Actually a pretty good point NAI 195 C1 195 Breaker Says they are learning from reactions to James, says they didn't play reliably last game deliberately. Claims Blue Ajah. Claims no good reads due to being new. Mild sus re highlighting inexperience Mild evil 196 C1 196 Burnt Spaghetti Says Breaker a shade of Chaos NAI NAI 197 C1 197 Breaker On good terms with Burnt NAI NAI 198 C1 198 Dannex Replies to James' megapost. Answer is essentially that it his behaviour is to do with the meta. Still says existence of vanilla "more important than [we are] assuming", doesn't explain it. Thinks James tunneling. Not too satisfied with this answer. Gut read on it is that it is dismissive without engaging in points made. Mild evil 199 C1 199 James Brafin Chaos NAI NAI 200 C1 200 StrikerEZ Says they are lost. Thinks gist is that people are suspicious of Dannex. Defends Dannex's behaviouir as being because they might be a defensive player. Thinks James an aggressive player. Link between Striker and Dannex? Known elim 201 C1 201 Burnt Spaghetti Says she will take notes on Dannex and Condensation. Useful enough. I look forward to reaching these notes. NAI Clearly a lot yet to get through. I got quite a lot of pushback on my views on Dannex from my last post. Does anyone want to be kind and summarise why we now think he is a villager? @James Brafin I'd be particularly interested in your views given your early C1 megapost on him (#180 in my table).
