Ho-hum, that's plenty of somethings.

Of course he's saying that, on the off chance somebody might revive him. Don't anyone actually do that.

And that's probably why he's dead. I thought he must have been a somewhat unsubtle inforole if he was so bent on something that didn't at all seem like such a certain guess -- the mafia must have thought the same thing.

That's rare, considering the flavor and the fact that it's kind of ridiculously powerful, although it checks out considering the indisputable facts at hand. Pity we're down an inspector, although one mobster down is ever excelsior. Would've been nicer if we could've gotten inno confirmation on, you know, somebody other than person who stands to gain the most from that confirmation, but eh, can't win 'em all.

Yeah, I was going to ask whether you get to do that. Honestly, that'd be very powerful -- two dead innocents who can vote (and one dead mafioso who can't) makes us practically impossible to endgame, provided that Mimikyu's favoured mafia win condition requires actual endgaming. Have you verified if that's how your power works?

Wait, you can keep on backing up for new powers? Man, everyone but me in this game is utterly freaking broken, I swear.

Oooh, I think I get it. You're party host, then? And no night actions take place when you throw a party?

For my own part -- since we probably know where all the kills from the last three nights have gone, I should be good to claim my role. I'm a hunter -- as in, lynch me, and I get to drop a daykill. Mimikyu must've figured it'd be a doozy, slapping me with that role when my flavor comes with a solid possibility of being alien. This side of an already dead third party player and a very low likelihood that I'm already activated (which, if I were alien, would be a vital little step to secure before I'd go making claims that are likely to get me lynched), though, I imagine I'm in the clear to just make this little asset known to Town without any of the baggage.

And I forgot to mention -- it's reasonable enough to infer that the flavor might be implying that VM was a poisoner, but it strikes me as likelier to just be meant as the in-text marker of "he was mafia". Going by DarkAura's death description, it doesn't seem as if the flavor is actually dropping any clues of that clarity as to what roles people had.

It's unfortunate, but that's how it goes.

Yes, it explicitly says that I become a Restless Spirit if I still have these powers when I die.

Yes, I can keep doing it as many times as I like, though I have to discard my current power set before I can take on a new one, and I don't know for certain what powers I'll get. Still, it's very handy.

Hmm. Well, even if you're not a literal Alien, you might still have ulterior motives for wanting to get lynched... but I'm inclined to believe you, I suppose.

Oh, DarkAura just pointed something out to me. We can use Superbird's Restless Spirit power to confirm my claim!

Superbird, please say "Abstain" if you want to confirm that I'm telling the truth. Otherwise, you can vote to lynch me, hehehe!

Oh yeah two things.
1. Don't panic when the night period starts and the party doesn't start immediately! I don't wake up until six hours later, so don't panic!
2. Party host is my secondary role. My primary role is... (drumroll, please)... BUS DRIVER!
Using my patented Pixelator, I can swap the places of two people every night! Ehehehe!
That means that even when the mafia tries to kill me, they won't know until morning whether they killed me or not! Muahaha!
Now, I must get these invitations out posthaste!

gg Wargle



For clarification Phoenix, what exactly is your power? Block every action, protect every player/cancel kills, or just end night early?

because if it's just protection then mafia can still do stuff if they have other roles like framers, coroners or mafia cops. Though I guess ending the night early wouldn't exactly stop a kill unless the mafia was slow on deliberation.

It's a party host ability. Whatever the default is for that I guess.
Now I have 9 brand new Poltergust 5000's to make, so obvious filler is obvious.

I'm your friendly local town doctor although apparently I do your doctor visits by paying for them with all my capitalist democracy cash. so maybe not friendly to my bank account.
but I do have a question before I go into specifics:

Go under your User CP, click Edit Options, look for the Private Messaging box, and click the checkbox that says Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Items folder by default. It doesn't recover messages you sent before that though, so we'll have to assume that you did switch me and ILS.

Can you go back to previous powers? If so, with some judicious use of the power you have now, you can just know for mostly certain.

The usual party host affects nighttime communications, rather than night actions, but TCoD games can kind of end up going any direction with it, since controlling nighttime communication is much screwier on a non-specialized forum format. Does your PM specify what your party does to night actions?

I protected butterfree the first two nights and myself most recently.

^This

From my experience, Party Host doesn't affect actions at all, it just gathers everyone together in one place (usually used in games with trackers/bombs and such)


Also from my experience there is a variation on this that roleblocks every action except for kills, and that's the Blizzard power used by the Ice Queen role (think Mei from Overwatch). This role is the mafia equivalent to Party Host

Of course I'm not saying that Phoenix is lying/omitting anything with this. TCoD mafia roles tend to diverge from normal (such as The Thing here being the Gladiator role) roles that are used elsewhere, just adding on to what MF is saying.


Ideally Phoenix's PM was specific as to what it does, and how it works
