Re: DSLR Mafia Game 11 - The Pirates of Broadtown - GAME

I had a pretty easy roleclaim, because in a previous game (11 i think) we were heading to a "no lynch" I logged on later to find myself being strung up on the first day. I was the cop and they killed me anyways. This may be why older dog said what he said. So I had good credibility to roleclaim, also since I technically was a doctor, I 0played as one and laid low.

I though Sarah was a bad "guy" for a while there myself. But Tech was the more obvious one. So I dropped Sarah altogether and tried to show everybody how he was posting.
Unfortunately, after my Role Claim, I suspect people just disregarded all of my posts.

And thanks to the Magistrate, and the Witch Doctor who cured me. At least I died a Townie.

Correct
That and my first or second game a similar situation came up, the consensus was that you should back off quickly to prevent the mafia from possibly finishing off someone.

Well good! That will be a sign to every one, that any one that wants to get rid of me early on in the next game is bound to be mafia!

So I was browsing mafiascum.net for the hell of it, and guess what! They have a word for loller.

This was a pretty fun game for me, though I did keep forgetting to use my lingo.

The night that nobody died, I apparently didn't submit a kill in a timely enough manner to Dezbend, because I hadn't submitted anything when day broke and nobody had died. It was an unfortunate coincidence that Sarah had chosen to roleblock me on that night that worked against me.

Due to that and other incidents, I wasn't very satisfied with my play early on. Toward the end, I felt I had a pretty good handle on the roles lurking in the game, so I started throwing out some lies. When chlen was close to getting lynched, I wasn't too concerned about saving him. I honestly didn't think we could, and I certainly wasn't going to have any of us mafia members stick our neck out to defend him with him so close to lynch. We had a serious problem at that point, though. Maxo and aztec's role-claim had cleared a huge portion of the town. We were running out of places to hide and people to implicate. Maxo had to die, but we couldn't find the doctor. I thought having chlen role-claim would flush out the doctor (and if it didn't, chlen could continue living). It seemed a win-win for him to claim as Doctor. Sarah suspected htmlartist at one point, and often when someone seems like mafia, they're actually the doctor, so that's how I decided to kill him. Stroke of luck that he was the doctor, but it meant death for chlen.

I pretended to have a chest with mysterious contents to 1) give myself some legitimacy with the town 2) To prevent any vigilante sort from taking a shot at me 3) To discourage anyone from role-blocking me and 4) to give me some leverage later on if I needed to burn someone down.

When Sarah got the vote going on loller and I opposed it, I really really wanted that lynch to go through. I had written up a really long post implicating Sarah for all the bad lynches, plus the bad lynch of loller amid my protestations, and I was going to frame her vote on chlen as a dissociative maneuver. Also, I was going to call into question her roleblock claim. Unfortunately, the vote on loller did not succeed, so my case on Sarah was significantly weaker. I had wanted to kill her for a while due to her roleblocking ability, but she was accusing all the wrong people, so we kept her around. I decided at that point that I wasn't going to be able to pull off a lynch so she was night killed.

The next day, I was really uncertain what to do. Two people fired off quick votes on MDReferee. The safe course of action would have been to burn MDReferee and try to survive down to 1-1, but I had concerns that some crazy vote might develop against me simply because I was participating.

I decided to go with a crazy idea: claim to have unimpeachable proof and implicate someone the town had already been suspicious of anyway. I considered this to be an extremely risky proposition. For one, as soon as I did it, loller was going to get the whole picture. I knew without a doubt that he would immediately finger myself and MDReferee. Also, I was going against an already-established trend for MDReferee, and it looked suspicious as hell, especially since I had been signed on when those people were posting their MDReferee votes. Thirdly, I was worried that my item sounded really suspicious, though it was the only type of item I could think of to accomplish the task. Then again, I only needed a single vote to add to our two mafia votes to end the game. I pulled the trigger, and as predicted, loller popped off and fingered us both. Fortunately, loller has a history of wildly pointing his finger everywhere when he's about to get lynched, and some of those times he was scum.

This game was tedious and plodding early on, but the last several days were really exciting. I loved it.

I had to laugh when I saw you post the "Telescope of Truth"... sounds more like something from a Harry Potter book than The Pirates of Broadtown. I would've gone the voodoo route since we'd already had magic/voodoo stuff in the game...

I was going to blame it on Yock if they called me out on it. Anyway, since I was using a chest, I was thinking something pirate/sailing oriented rather than voodoo, not to mention I wasn't a Creole character. Maybe you're right, though. Some voodoo spell could be good.

A voodoo-themed game could be kind of cool. Voodoo dolls, zombies, curses, potions and spells...

All of which is, I'm sure, terribly offensive and wrong-headed to any real practitioner of voodoo, but whatever

I think that themed game can be a lot of fun. I was looking for a Role definition and stumbled on a game based on the TV Show "Lost"

Argh, t'liv'rwurst be 'nk' lmnop.
I was just playing around about how things where kind of difficult to read. When everyone seem to think I was being serious as part of my role I started thinking about that movie where Brad Pitt plays the gypsy and nobody can understand him and he uses it to his advantage. So I found »www.jewsforshalom.org/Creole-Eng···ist.html and thought I would use that to be completely open about my role as cop. By the time mafia figured me out I was hoping I would have a long enough record of investigations that the town could refer to. In stead I was figured out when I pointed out the first baddie and from there on out the doc kept me alive at night.
By that time I had established my dialect and talking was just too damn annoying to make any real points, so I mostly just watched the game with only minimal participation.
As much of a pain as it was to read my post, it was equally annoying to write it. But it was my idea expanded upon by yock See Profile's instructions, so I can't complain. It served it's purpose well of getting out investigations.
I'll be starting up »Mafia Game 15 Signup tomorrow. Jump in while you still have the chance, but only if you think you really can participate actively.
