Spy Thriller Mafia - The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. (Game over EoD3))


  • Welcome, delegates, to the first annual International Espionage Conference. This week-long event is where we gather together not as rivals, but as associates, for the betterment of the world. Knowledge shared is knowledge gained, after all!

    Rules:

    1. If you want to vote, use the [vote][/vote] tags. To remove an existing vote, use [unvote][/unvote]. Votes after the first won't count unless you unvote the prior ones first.
    2. No use of fake tags.
    3. If you're going to be away for a substantial length of time which will affect your capacity to play, please let me know.
    4. No quoting your Role PM or any communication with the GM.
    5. Don't communicate with others in private about your role except where expressly permitted. Communicating with other players in private during the game will be considering cheating.
    6. Don't edit the content of your posts after you post them. Spelling/grammar fixes are fine (within limits), just don't outright delete things that you wrote or add more in the same post. (doubleposting is permitted, but don't be spammy about it)
    7. General ZU forum rules apply - no flaming!

    Breaking any of these rules (except #1, which has its own punishment) will result in you being modkilled, regardless of how well or poorly your team is doing at the time.

  • Wait a minute... I didn't invite this many countries! I only invited 9 delegations, and it has come to my attention that the United States has sent multiple!

    Attention, members of the US delegation: You are all banned from this conference this year, and will be escorted off the premises shortly... as soon as we can find you.

    I already don't trust you.

    Just making a subbing post mostly. Will likely check in again before I head to bed. Will most certainly post more tomorrow.

    Going to put this here as I don't see it in the OP and I like to know who's all supposed to be here:

    1) Lady Sunshine
    2) Ruki
    3) Kae
    4) TingleMakesMeTingle
    5) Big Daddy Biggles
    6) Rambo
    7) GuardianFIN
    Romano-British Medli
    9) GregariousTree
    10) gerudoyoshi
    11) Monika
    12) Realmwings

    Also, I believe our only real newbie is Tingle - is that correct? I think everyone else has participated in at least one other game.

    @RealmWings - my memory is poor. Is this your first game or have you played mafia with us before?

  • Alright since I doubt this is going to be going anywhere anytime fast, let's speed things up shall we?

    So for those who played with me before know I will go after anyone who votes no lynch. For newbies, this is your one and only warning. For the reason why I am going after people who vote no lynch it gives the Americans (or Mafia - really same difference) time to make their move while we get no closer to the answer. If you haven't played before you get a grace period before people try to murder you, so if you aren't sure of something more experienced players are talking about don't be afraid to ask. While there is a guide for Mafia, nobody reads that thing even though it's a good idea to so you know.

    Next, I'm going to actually lead with a vote.

    [vote]Monika[/vote]

    I know you were probably doing that to bait someone, so I guess I'm biting. You do some pretty ballsy moves so you making a "joke" post like that is quite possible part of your plan to play things off knowing people are too hesitant to really start throwing accusations around Day 1 hard. But hey, we need some spicy excitement.

    So Monika you have two pills. One power to kill on the spot. One pill to save from certain death. You must give to someone other than yourself. Which two players do you give each pill to?

  • Ruki coming in strong - I expected nothing less.

    That is a most interesting question you posed. Are you allowing anyone to answer it?

    Too late - answering it anyway:

    Power to kill - I'd give it to you honestly. Regardless of which team you are on you typically have a very good track record of reading people and finding out who needs to die so I'd trust your judgement.

    Power to save - I'd give this to Kae. Like you, she is able to read through a situation and figure things out that others may have missed, thus likely being able to save a power role before it can be taken out.

    Now, those look like I just picked two of the more veteran players, but the reason for my choices are basically that I have more to go off of for older players versus new ones.

    In truth, I would be tempted to give each of these powers to a newer player. I feel them using the power could result in us learning more about them and the people they chose to use it on (well obviously we'd learn about the person who got killed but m point stands).

    Now, @Ruki, are you willing to answer your own question?

  • Lynching is very useful, and should be done each day, but I would just say that it should be done thoughtfully as it's quite easy to get stuck in one's own preconceived notions about another's supposed scumminess.

    Though I won't join in on the Monika train just yet as while I had originally intended to vote for him, at least temporarily, for the same reasons as you, Ruki, I don't need to now.

    Instead I'll try to pressure someone else, which will most likely fail to garner any useful information but whatever.

    How about you, [vote]GuardianFIN[/vote]?

    What do you have to say for yourself?

    Also if I were to answer Ruki's question as well, then I have no idea who I'd give either of the pills to.

    Hooray, you caught on to my plan. :cookiemonster:

    I would give the killing power to Rambo. I trust that if he had that power, we could hold him accountable for anything he does whatever the consequences.

    The power to "save yourself" depends on whether you're implying a one-shot kill avoid or kill immunity ahaha. I'm gonna assume the former, and I'd give it to Kae just because I personally enjoy her being around in games longer than shorter.
  • Honesty my two picks are interchangeable: Rambo and Kae. But if I had to decide who gets what, I’d say Rambo would get the power to save from the bullet or noose since he is very good at going back through the thread and actually reading everything. He has valuable insight on different things which I think would be good. Kae is someone who has pretty good inight so I think at this point she would be good with a trigger.

  • @Rukis pill question - it cant be taken too seriously yet since we'd be mentioning the names of people we have preconceived notions about from past games. Personally, I'm immediately intimidated by certain players when we have nothing to go off of so I'd definitely be guilty of answering to that effect.

    So Ill do ya one better. Playing the "lets see if I'm psychic" and based on this thread's content, (which is zip zap zero) my shot in the dark as a town player who has nothing to go off of... our scummies are...
    • Monika
    • Rambo
    • Romano-British Medli
    • Realmwings
    12 players = 3-4 mafia members, ja?
    Could have a third party.

    That's why I usually start the conversation by mentioning I'm going to want 2-3 wagons by the end of day. More than that and its easy to hide for mafia when the votes are enivatibly analyzed, and less than that and shitz weird.

    So how about those for our wagons? Looks like Monika is already on the table anyways, easy peezy lemon squeezy.

    English get off the table and put your shirt back on.
  • Ninja'd - and monika said nice things. Sorry bud, I like having you around too but I stand by my statement to get the town to limit wagons to a smaller number if possible. Blame Ruki for getting your vote started. My biggest pet peeve is the 'one-off' voting that has nothing to do with the topics of conversation. People get nervous joining a wagon but the reality is everyone is nervous, the town needs to play as a team.

    Thanks for the hypothetical killing powers DLR and Ruki but I'd be shit at using it right now (unless any of those players I mentioned are sitting behind their keyboard yelling "FUCK HOW'D SHE KNOW I WAS AN AMERICAN EMBARRASSMENT").
