I'll second that.

I'd love to see just what Bard does if we actually kill it.

Eh, what the heck.  Sanity died a long time ago anyway.

Atuin.  It's turtles all the way down.

If we manage to end this game before all the PM's are sent, does that set some kind of record?

If you lynch A'Tuin, you will get an awesome write-up. Also, you'll all die. Just saying... :P

All PM's have now been sent. If I missed you somehow, or if you have questions, please PM me.

You're voting for me because I signed up first!? I've been perfectly active. Go poke somebody else.

Thanks for posting, sanity, I can find someone else to lynch now.

I really want to lynch A'tuin for the write-up, but I want a bit more discussion first. So...

Kiwi. Start talking.

Wait, why me? I'm new at this. I'm most likely going to need help.

Hi! It looks like you're trying to not get lynched! Would you like me to help with that?

Yes:

Spoiler

*On D1 votes:

Standard games

D1 is always a controversial topic. People have no info, and so for the first few minutes, they muddle around randomly, voting on whoever catches their eye. At the end of D1, someone almost always gets lynched, and they're almost always a villager. However, the information gained by the chaotic swaying of the votes might be worth the sacrifice. Or possibly not.

Faction games

This is the case for standard elimination games. In faction games, things are a much different matter. Rather than having one faction of eliminators who are all watching one another's backs, you have at least 3. In this game, there appear to be 5 or so factions, making determining allegiances difficult. In faction games, instead of voting to gather information through pressuring people, people are simply voting to kill someone not in their faction. Therefore, they don't care much who they kill.

Therefore...

You may be a struggling player in one of these games, having been voted on by one, perhaps two people. In a standard game, just reply with phrases like, "Yo, wassup dawg, I'm active," or "Oi, don't vote on me! X is so much more suspicious." In a faction game, you need to do nothing more than vote on another player, coupling your vote with the phrase, "X is inactive. why don't we vote on them instead?" If you chose someone in your attackers faction, they will deny your request, giving you a bit more information. If you chose someone not in their faction, they will heartily agree, glad that someone is willing to vote with them to destroy someone not in their faction.

Aww, okay. Next time, maybe.

Judging by what happened last couple times Death was out of the picture, I don't think that's a good idea. :P I don't want to go shopping. :P 

Anyways. Where to start? This is an unusual game, in some ways. We have various factions, Eliminators without a stated kill, and a couple weird independents. The factions share mutually contradictory win cons, with the exception of the Factions Leaders, who simply need to survive. The Clacks and the Post have their struggle, which is utterly irrelevant to everyone else. Then there's the Monarchists, who are irrelevant to the Faction Leaders, Post, and Clacks, but not the regular players. (<-Sucks to be you. :P)

Now, you unlucky regulars, I've a proposition. I'll come straight out, I'm a Post Officer with no other Alignment. However, I do have something useful, and I figure, you help me, I'll help you. I'm going to hold an Auction each cycle. Whoever 'donates' the most money to the Post each night will be given the Alignment of one player of their choice the next night, or, possibly, another service, depending on what abilities are available to my fellows. (Donations, of course, taking the form of PMs sent to me or one of my coworkers at night.)

It's up to you, of course, whether or not you take the deal. However, I'm sure that I, and my brothers in the Post, (who I would most appreciate correspondence from tonight) could be of great use to whichever side wishes to help us achieve our victory.

Apologies everyone - I've forgotten to work out how much money everybody starts off with. I'll be balancing it over the next hour or two (intermittently with class), and I'll get back to you all in about 2 hours with how much you started out with. Sorry about that :P

Maybe Mort will take over.

I don't think the Post Office and Clacks are factions. The only people who care about the struggle between them are the Postmaster and the Clacks Master.

I'm pretty sure all it means to be a Postman is that you get thruppence every night. @The Young Bard, am I right about this?

So no, unless you are the Postmaster, you are not a "Post Officer with no other alignment".

@Wonko the Sane Ahem. thirty pence, not three. We Postmen are able to live off our jobs. :P 

The Post and the Clacks are not a part of the Faction struggle so far as I know. However, I have no tie to any given Faction.

Whaat? Where did this influx of money come from? Considering that a message only costs 1 penny to send, that seems a bit much, don't you think?

All values stated in the rules were multiplied by a factor of ten. Bard told us that a while ago. (Too lazy to find the post.) Posts cost ten pennies, and Post Officers make thirty.

Ah, right, I forgot Bard multiplied all the numbers by 10.

The Post Office and Clacks are not, but at least some Post Officers and Clacks Workers are. The rules explicitly remind us that the Unlicensed Thief will still be one or the other, and there is an implication that this applies to other players. "Post Office" is not an alignment. Also, there's this clarification:

"The Post Office/Clacks deal will only directly affect the Post Office Master and Clacks Master's win con directly."

Well, I'm sorry for not reading the rules well enough. :P Regardless, the offer stands. I'm in a mood for chaos, and it'll be interesting to see who takes up my offer.

Another complicated game I stumbled upon being a nooby. Are we throwing poke votes around?
