Lifthrasil: Aren't you always?

my name is catte: Well not always, but no one remembers the times I'm town. I think successfully using motion detector to trap scum in the Stanley Hotel was my finest moment.
That's true!

Did they ever manage to get out?

JoeSapphire: Did they ever manage to get out?
No, I refused to let them out. There's an old photo from the '20s in the hotel with GymHenson in the middle.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for referencing via hyperlinks what you were talking about at various times. It is so frustrating to read (after the fact)
"oh, Micro, you should have done such and so" or worse, "WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT" without saying anywhere what that "that" is. The person reading after the fact then has to try and compare timestamps, etc to figure it out, which takes much of the fun out of reading the observer threads. Instead, links in some of the messages (as appeared in this observer thread) are a huge benefit.
Also, I knew you were trying to communicate something with the boons, but it went over my head. :(
You are welcome! I just posted the way I wished people posted.

Thanks to you for the explanation and the tasty bits about Picts and Scots!

Here follows an explanation of those three messages. Their intention has been explained repeatedly in the observer thread. Here, some commentary on literature has been set aside in notes, so that you can skip that if you wish.

Three boons: something new, something old, something blue

Something new:
https://www.gog.com/forum/general/gog_mafia_75_harry_potter_vs_brokol_in_the_bizarro_pokemon_world/post383

Something old:
https://www.gog.com/forum/general/gog_mafia_75_harry_potter_vs_brokol_in_the_bizarro_pokemon_world/post411

Something blue:

"I tell you three times". This sentence, or a variation of it, appeared prominently at the beginning of the each of the three messages. Indeed. In each of the three messages, the verb "to watch" was used thrice in the same paragraph, in three separate messages.

This also makes reference to two literary works. One is The Hunting of the Snark, by Lewis Carroll (of Alice in Wonderland fame).

"Just the place for a Snark! I have said it twice:
That alone should encourage the crew.
Just the place for a Snark! I have said it thrice:
What I tell you three times is true."

The other reference is The Number of the Beast, a science fiction novel by Robert. A. Heinlein. The protagonists program new commands for the onboard computer by giving her (the ship) voice instructions and then asking her to remember by telling her "I tell you three times". To what she replies "I hear you three times" (yes it was a reference to The Hunting of the Snark itself).

Additionally, in the first message, what is the name of the newspaper?: The Nouvel Observateur.

In the second message, there was a reference to a passage in the music. The Youtube link points to that short section. As soon as it ends (it is really short) begins another one where Mike Olfield sings himself the verse "The Watcher and the Tower". Yes, three times. Because what I tell you three times is true.

In the third message, lyrics from the Yes song Starship Troopers were quoted. Within the quote, a line appeared NOT in italics, unlike all the rest. Yes, the song has the same name of the novel by Robert A. Heinlein, and the movie, and soon the computer game (the second they make).

Sister Bluebird flying high above
Shine your wings forward to the sun
Hide the mysteries of life on your way
Though you've seen them, please, don't say a word
What you don't know, I have never heard
Starship Trooper, go sailing on by

If you check the third and the fourth lines, this was a plea for not mentioning it openly in the thread if you realized the PR mentioned in these messages. Also it was an indication that there was a hidden message and that if you did not pick it, at least you could realize there was something, and possibly either desist in your vote or ask others to do so.

ZFR: dedo: I don't particularly take pride in having Day Chat for Mafia. In fact, my last game Mafia had No-chat. I did say once jokingly though that I'd like to belive I started the trend of Day Chat, because after my Day Chat Harry Potter game, the next few games did it too. In fact, if there was a trend, it was started by trent who did it in his Disney game a few games back.
Good to know, as most assumed it was so. Personally I think that night chat only is more fun in the end, although others like Pooka think otherwise. Yes, we had lots of time for chatting this game lol
