    Exclamation The Poastfather Part II - Mafiaheap Gamethread



    Welcome once again to Mafiaheap Challenge. The rules can be found here.


    The Roster (as of Day 1)
      Spoiler:


    • Approaching Walrus
    • Cue
    • Duck - Citizen
    • Helgur - Citizen
    • Kai - Lunatic
    • Larkin
    • Legionnaire
    • LobbyZ
    • Ort - Citizen
    • Toxic
    • Tyrus
    • Varcaus



    Roles List
      Spoiler:


    • Sheriff
    • Doctor
    • Cab Driver
    • Vigilante
    • Citizen
    • Citizen
    • Citizen
    • Survivalist
    • Lunatic
    • Godfather
    • Consigliere
    • Courtesan


    Some rules specific to this round:


    • Days will be 48 hours long to begin with. Once the number of living players drops below seven, days will shorten to 24 hours.
    • Because there's apparently some confusion about timezones we'll be using daythreads to determine when a new day phase starts. For example Day 1 begins when Saturday's (legit) daythread goes up, Day 2 will begin with Monday's daythread etc.
    • EDITING POSTS IS ALLOWED - provided you make it clear what's been edited out or added in - Strikethroughs are your friend.
    • Mafia will not be given a quicktopic - you're responsible for establishing your own lines of communication
    • We're using the Town Notice Board. Send a PM to me before the end of the day with a message you want posted to the Notice Board, and I'll publish it at the start of the next day. Notices can be signed, anonymous, misattributed or what have you.
    • Posting screenshots is permitted, with the understanding that screenshots can be faked. To facilitate fairness for those of you terrible at photoshop, I will send "fake" role PMs to anyone upon request.
    • Consigliere is doubling up as Mafioso this round
    • Due to :reasons: Survivalist has three uses of his vest, and the Vigilante has two bullets
    • Majority abstain is NOT a null-lynch. The only way to ensure a non-lynch is to engineer an exact tie vote.
    • Ask for clarification if you're unsure about anything - I can't check the pastebin from work and I don't remember what is or is not on it.





    Day 1 begins when Saturday's daythread is posted

    Tweaking the round balance slightly - one lucky Citizen just became a Survivalist.

    I've also adjusted the Survivalist's vest and the Vigilante's bullets to three and two respectively.

    Antonio "The Duck" Mallard has been murdered, execution style. Word on the street says he was whacked by the Mafia.

    Begin shitposting

    EDIT: Replaced image for clarity.

    I'm going to take this as an opportunity to meaninglessly +1 until somebody with a better idea of how this plays starts posting.

    What we need to do at the start is to talk. The mafia all know each other and are talking to each other privately. We need to get discussion going to get some information we can use to make a (semi) informed decision about who to lynch.

    So, calling all villagers, please post and debate.

    Clearly, this being Failheap we should not aim for victory but rather for utter fail. Hence $toxic.

    Trying to start a day one bandwagon are we? I'm now torn between a Kai vote or an abstain. Hmmm. Shall have to think about that one.

    Because why not? We need to get some discussion going to help suss out the mafia members and the easiest way to do that is to make wild accusations of players who will be verbose in their return arguments, thereby prompting further discussion as even more wild accusations are sent out.

    That being said $duckduck is far too similar to "The Duck" for my liking.

    My defense is that I have consistently advocated and acted in pro village way.
    Random accusations are better than silence but not as good as debate.
    Anyway, it is good to get discussion happening. Let's get more people involved

    I say $LobbyZ

    Because I can't help but think of DayZ every time I read his fucking name.

    When in Rome, abstain on day 1?

    At some point wasn't there a conclusion that a day one abstain was best for the village? (or vice versa?)

    Genuine question since I only played when we were amateur-houring it and before it got all complicated and people knew what they were doing.
    I tried to be cool and all I got was a lousy warning about my sig being too big.

    It is a hard game theoretic problem so there isn't a definitive answer. In the end an abstain might be the best option, but if everyone accepts that day 1 = abstain the village gains little or no information, while the mafia get to kill someone. So a random lynch is bad but *anything* that encourages discussion is good. Just shrugging and saying day 1 is a wash isn;'t good for ther village.

    Speaking of abstains, I forgot this one detail:

    Majority abstain is NOT a null-lynch. The only way to ensure a non-lynch is to engineer an exact tie vote.

    Who are all the newbies this round?

    Right now I am thinking Kai for going after Toxic after Toxic posted something useful...

    but then Toxic is too clever by half so it could be misdirection...

    Fuck Day 1
