what is the best playstyle for a SK to ensure his victory condition?
*shrug* SKs usually don't win since they need to be the last one standing. We've had a few get close, including an outrageous Flub claim that Yog only toppled at pretty much the last minute, and Cristigale managed to pull out an SK win at least once.
I'd say the best playstyle is to assume you aren't going to win, so just enjoying yourself while trying to live as long as you can and kill as many people as you can.
@Bookwyrm - why switch wagons and not switch back at any stage? Why not argue harder for your preferred wagon if you preferred me?
I switched to Blotunga when it looked like your wagon wasn't going to finish while his might. I was fine with either of you being lynched, so I certainly wasn't going to stress myself about which one of you actually got the noose. Also, I've learned that I can push, but it has a tendency not to work so I've mostly stopped trying very hard on that front. I'll list (or not) my reasons and vote.
Not from me. If it was up to me, I'd let everyone edit their posts all day long. But my mod partner Lift... he's crazy. Really hates mergers. I wouldn't put anything past him.
In all seriousness though: please do be careful everyone. Don't test my leniency too much.
Good to hear, I'm off to edit all of the really suspicious posts I've made now I've been given the okay on this
Okay, that DID make me laugh.
Mason claims I do understand but I don't think gogtrial and Pooka were talking about masons.
I genuinely don't know what you mean, what you are referencing, how this applies, etc.
As for the numbers I didn't look at things from this perspective. Mylo and Lylo are still quite far away to worry about.
Maybe, but with a mason claim we might be able to simply win mechanically via Yogsloth's favorite method: lynch our way right through everyone who didn't get cleared.
Your information is wrong, therefore you didn't pay much attention to the setup page, therefore you aren't scum, because only scum are going to closely read the setup.
Heh. I didn't mean it in that way and I'm pretty sure you are aware of that.
I probably started too oblique and then remained so.
For clarity: The setup does have a possible group of 3 masons; it requires 4M when rolling for roles. In this particular game, only one person could know there aren't 3 masons: a scum Godfather who lost their only partner N1 (he would know there couldn't be enough M's).
Scene talked about how only Scum would really look at the setup, thus my initial two comments.
If I started the wagon on scene and he turns out to be town I will have made myself look suspect, and if I don't when I find him suspect then I also look suspect.
Good news! Being overly worried about what does and does make you look suspect...makes you look suspect!
I plead the fifth. If I did kill him, it was either because I thought he deserved or because I wanted a low information kill or because he had the nicest skin and I wanted it. One of those.
Are you sure you didn't do to have a nice head to mount on your wall?
Hm, true. Heads DO make for lovely decorations.
Microfish_1: Masons, by definition, are a town role.
Please explain further. Refresh my memory, if you prefer that phraseology. How
would it enable others to clear yet others? I saw nothing in the setup rules/mafia wiki to indicate that masons cannot be scum, or have 1 of 3 masons as scum. Pleas enlighten me.
That's the whole point of the Mason role: every Mason knows that every Mason in their group is Town. If a Mason isn't town, then he isn't a Mason.
For an easy example: if we get a claim of 3 masons (where each one confirms the others), then we know they all have to be town. That means each non-town player now knows 4 players who can't
be scum (themself and the group of masons). Example with names: Pretend that Scene, Trent, and I all claimed to be a group of 3 masons (and we all confirm each other); this means that town!micro knows 4 players are confirmed town (Scene, Trent, Wyrm, and Micro).
but also I use it because once the filters at my work picked up on something I'd written in the game and got me flagged up by some senior staff to explain why I was talking about killing cops. So LUNCH is less likely to set off any weird scanners or whatever too.
Oh snap! I'm now much more amused than annoyed by your continued use of something that messes with certain searches. I imagine THAT conversation wasn't a very comfortable one.
I don't feel the need to parrot what many other people have already said about GameRager, nor repeat myself from D1. Vote GameRager.
