hi guys, I forgot about the game until such a point as when checking in would have been too much executive dysfunction

do I want to bother finding out about the reasoning for my lynching
Hi MF!! I hope all's well!

Rari inspected you as mafia and just now flipped town, so I think you're the biggest lead for a lot of people right now.

full disclosure we may have tried to pseudo-vigkill you overnight but seeing as you're still here you can probably guess how well that went

So I'm trying not to be on a high horse about this (and maybe failing, and I'm sorry if I am failing because I know I'm as much at fault as anyone) but my takeaways from the lynch yesterday are:
  • If we have a mechanically confirmed mafia on the table, I think it's probably best to just lynch the mafia over anyone else. Even if we seem to have some way to vig the mafia or we're not sure of the confirm.
  • Not liking what someone is doing with their role, or thinking they have been anti-town or haven't been contributing, doesn't mean they are mafia. Obviously I think town should try to play to their win conditions, but I also think not seeming to do so doesn't mean someone deserves to get lynched.

Couple of questions:

@Herbe - what are your role and power tropes?

@kyeugh - if you're comfortable saying, what was your "something major" that you remembered at the end of Day 2, and how did you still get the info about RNP being a roleblocker on the same night that he roleblocked you?

@Vipera Magnifica - how did you know that Stryke was making a coinflip between yourself and kokorico on Night 3? Did I miss some strategizing somewhere?

@mewtini - if you're comfortable saying, how did you know one of Eifie's clears was true?

@Mist1422 - you wouldn't happen to be a Miller-type role, would you?

Referring to her hypo-cop clears. This is a super non-urgent question, btw - you really don't need to say if you have any doubts about revealing info.

Oh also, @kokorico - if your role PM mentions some type of doctor that heals with technology, would you be able to confirm with Butterfree what exactly happens if that doctor and you target the same person?

Are these the only remaining unresolved mechanical situations?
- Why VM inherited ILS's role and not Jack's role on N1
- Who messaged VM with "kyeugh is not mafia" on N1
- How Eifie died on N2, when kokorico magic-healed her and Stryke nanobots-healed her but was blocked by town RNP
- Why kyeugh got the result that VM targeted her and she was targeted with Nanomachines on N3

I'll try and look at some non-mechanical stuff later on today!

Obviously we'll never know for sure, but can't this be attributed to Mawile? It's in line with his power, and it seems a lot more likely than any other explanation imo

Well how about this:
  • You heal M&F
  • VM coinflip-heals M&F or me
  • I coinflip-heal you or VM
All three of us have a chance of being healed (so the mafia can't safely target us), and we have a 50% shot at offing M&F

...or we could just lynch M&F on D5, which seems more straightforward and less risky
@:Keldeo
 

kokorico

There's definitely a wolf on the Phoenix wagon, and according to my previous M&F spew, it can only be kokorico.
something something wolf in the henhouse

full disclosure: I have no idea how to play outgroup properly, obviously couldn't ask anyone for help, and have spent most of the game so far amusing myself by presenting increasingly implausible lies to see how far I had to go before someone scumread me. it was mildly disturbing that literally zero people indicated disbelief when I claimed doctor. smh.

it's been fun! kinda wish it didn't have to end like this (and tbh at this rate I reckon I could have strung y'all along for at least another night or two, since it seems like even seshas was second-guessing themself) but I think I really ought to Bomb Keldeo before he reveals his red check. sorry dude, it's not personal. see you around <3

Out of nowhere, surprising everyone, kokorico grabs Keldeo, pulls out a crude remote with a button on it, and presses the button.

The two of them are simultaneously blown to smithereens.

kokorico is dead. E was not mafia.

Keldeo is dead. He was not mafia.

Please carry on!
