The Inquisitor stood in the streets of Luthadel, surrounded by a mob of citizens. As they surrounded her, she saw that one person was missing from the crowd. As she died, she smiled, knowing that Ruin had found a new servant.

Thanks Straw for running this game! I had a ton of fun. I'm glad I had the time to step in for @BrightnessRadiant. Sorry, BR. I couldn't quite win it for you. I made some terrible decisions. :P

@Rathmaskal, I'm disappointed in you. You should have let me live! :P And @Fifth Scholar, I'm disappointed in you too, for scanning me. I can't believe you didn't trust my claims!

Overall, this was a very good game. Congrats to the village.

I tried to convince people to vote on someone else for you...  Alas, no one believed me.  One of these days, there's going to be a secret GM elim.

Edit: Btw, am I remembering incorrectly, or did Hael have TWO successful lurcher protects?  Well done.

Edit 2: "Rath is on my side...possibly confused..." lol, no, just trolling.

:D Once I figured out you were the coinshot, I knew it was trolling. Still nice to have someone not vote on me... At least at the beginning. 

I hope you all enjoyed the last two turns as much as I did. Being an outed elim in the thread is a blast.

OK, this set of docs in particular has been a blast to read through:

"Storm it Rath, why did you have to attack Elandera?  Couldn’t you have left him alone or better yet attack another player like the Lurcher or Fifth?" lol

Now that I'm through everything, great game everyone.  One of these days, I'd like to figure out how to be as effective through PMs as some people are.  The main thing I'm good at is...umm...well, the main thing I'm OK at is existing (I was going to put that under good, but I kind of blew that in the QF this time around).  (No need to try making me feel better about my skill if you were planning on doing so...just like throwing out some good ol' self-deprecating humor on occasion)

Conversion games are a lot of fun.  I do think they have the one situation where there is legitimately an argument against a D1 lynch, but the mechanics of this game definitely warranted trying to either hit a misting or the inquisitor from the start.  MVP this game is a toss up between Fifth and Hael I think.  Two successful lurcher saves is darned good...but so is the seeker not only finding the lurcher, but both elims as well.  OK, Fifth, you win this one.  Honorable mention goes to Rand's rick-roll shenanigans.

I'm trying to remember if this is the first game I've been put in a vigilante role...I feel like there was another time I had a kill, but I can't recall the game...oh well.  Anyway, having the kill power means you have to trust yourself a heck of a lot.  Fortunately with this game, the fact that it was a one-time kill made me want to save it specifically for an outed multi-life character.

Thanks Straw for the game!

I’d just like to say thanks for lynching me early on. I haven’t been in the greatest place mentally lately (getting ready to move to college, stresses of my job, etc), so it was nice to only have to worry about the QF. 

I wish I’d paid more attention to the game before Elandera got outed, but it was fun reading the thread once she was. I’m a little upset that @BrightnessRadiant got Inquisitor and didn’t immediately convert me. :P I was hoping I’d Snap eventually, but was really hoping I’d get converted more. XD

Anyway, thank you Straw for running this game!

Ha, yes! I knew Rath had to be a Coinshot. He suspiciously knew the rules for coinshots, but not inquisitors earlier in the game. 

I honestly got really lucky with the protects. Fifth scanned me first cycle, so I was able to protect him cycle 2 which worked out. Then later I had been suspicious of Doc being evil and thought he might attack Burnt for her stuff in PMs, so happened to protect her that cycle.

Sorry Straw for the spamming of PMs. I blame Burnt - I don't PM much otherwise.

Ahhh, thank you.  I figured pointing out the coinshot rule was enough that people were getting suspicious, but the combination of the two definitely makes it quite likely that I was the coinshot.

This was a good game to come back to, as I got to play with some really good friends and got to be at least kind of useful in the game :P Unfortunately, it also caused me stress and reminded me again that I was never a good SE player even when I was a regular. I spent the early game winging it, spent midgame getting tunneled on in despair and apathy and the last half of it trying to make up for early mistakes and still getting suspected a lot :P I was lucky that even though I was the most incompetent player ever, I was at least of some use and didn't make too big of mistakes. So thank you Straw and thank you to all for playing with me, but I will be taking the lesson to heart and never coming back. The most I'll do is participate in spec docs and stuff. So... it was really great being back for a while until it wasn't, and thank you all so much :)

@Doc12 What makes you think you're not a good SE player?  For that matter, what makes a good SE player?  These games aren't about being good at them, they are about having fun.  I am probably one of the worst villagers to ever play but I keep playing for the fun of the game and for that next time I'm evil (which I consider to be fun).  You have the makings of a great addition to our little group, you just need to find what you enjoy the most about SE.  If it's analyzing players but you don't have the time then maybe only do one player each cycle.  Maybe your top two suspects or something like that.  No one expects essay levels of analysis every turn of every game and if they do, then I would fully expect and demand them to be the one doing it.  Maybe PMing and behind the scenes is more your thing then that's fine too.  If you just want to RP then do that.  Try something different each game until you find something you truly enjoy and then fiddle around with that.  No one here has any right to say you don't belong or that you should play a certain way and if they do, then send them my way and I'll be very happy to educate them.

I don't really RP, analyze or PM and no one really expects me to do those.  I sit and think, gathering information and lurking as I wait for that little piece of the puzzle that makes everything fit together.  Do you know how many times that's happened?  Twice.  In all my games my way of doing things has only paid off twice.

Find what makes SE fun for you, stick with it and everything else will fall into place.  If SE isn't fun then maybe it's not for you but if you do enjoy it, then I think it would be a shame to give up on something you enjoy simply for something as trivial as not being good at it.

What Alvron said.

I have, in my year and a half here, ruined many a game for the village as a villager. :P My "analysis" is rarely ever correct, and usually ends up misleading me and others more often than not. But I enjoy the community and the debates. Plus the Cosmere/Sanderson themes make it even more fun (even though my RPing has taken a drastic decline).

Though I was kind of pocketing you, what I said in the game was the truth. You aren't a bad at SE. If you are, all of us are as well. I really enjoyed the short time I was able to play with you, and I do hope you join us again. If you don't feel comfortable playing, we'd definitely love to have you spectate. Just know, you're always welcome, no matter how good you think you are.

Yeah, I'm wholeheartedly supporting what Alvron and Elandera said. I really don't think you're a bad player at all. You participate in the discussion, you're quite observant and a boon to whatever team you're on. Sure, you don't figure out the identities of all the elims within the first 4 cycles, but no one does that.

Wooo!

I very much enjoyed my self built role of the PM Spider. Sorry for making you waste two kills on me Elandera :P Although I admit i'm a little pleased that I concerned you enough to do so. You had terrible luck this game and its a shame you weren't able to get another conversion off (would've thrown me and my pming into utter chaos of terrified paranoia though, which would've been delightfully fun, and you would've had a new buddy so your doc wouldn't have been so quiet, but alas it was not to be...). You did well for sounding villagery though, to the point that i'd discarded some things i'd found suspicious of you because I didn't find you sus enough to properly focus on (so i ended up forgetting about the whole being the only player to differentiate between the coinshot and inquiziboi kill in my pm questions).

Also sorry straw for the literal hundreds of pms :D I guess you see now why Alv noped out of being included in them when I asked :P

Also y'all were waaay too free with information in pms. Was very useful for me but PM SAFETY GUYS XD  Pretty quickly I knew more roles than fifth, the seeker, did, and i didn't need to scan anyone to get them :P its probably a good thing for village that there wasn't any more conversions because a lot of information had been shared around in pms 

Good job on hael for the ninja reflexes on the protects. Also kinda insane  and lucky that you the lurcher was fifths first scan. I enjoyed working with you guys too

Also thanks to everyone for everyone else for tolerating my pms and questions and the occasional moment of insanity.

@Doc12- I've already spoken to you RE: your thoughts on you in this game, but i'll say again here, that you got me three peoples roles. That was enough for us to nail down the list of suspects and bring it down to a very, very small list. Also remember that not every games going to be your best play. One game you may be an instrumental player and play a big part, the next game you may just be cannon fodder. What matters is that you can take a step back and think about how you can grow and improve, what could you have done better, or maybe it was poor luck and nothing would have changed, what matters is that you keep trying. Don't give up pup. Also this game wasn't exactly a normal game as far as games go, so your play style may be great in a game with more things happening in thread.

 

And last but not least, THANK YOU STRAW FOR RUNNING THIS GAME (and tolerating the pm spammage). I had a lot of fun and it is good to be back :)

I'm very curious as to how you did that with Elandera's name.

I didn't really get to be active in this game. I always sign up for two games and only end up really playing one :P

The concept was really cool though! (also if someone would explain why or how I was lynched that would be great)
