Even that alone helps, since we've ruled out a couple of players.

I don't know if we really want to just keep going no-kill back and forth: the Mafia will eventually just find out everyone's position, and we'll be here with much less information.

I have a feeling it'll boil down to a chicken race with the mafia and sheriff.

Sheriff will keep investigating, trying to get as much info as possible before found by the mafia.

And Mafia will try and off the sheriff as soon as possible, preferably before speaking out.



That's what I thought of when thinking over the issue, so it feels like the game is already highly in play, just that I don't really have no place in it as of yet. :/

Yes, the insomniac hears checking.

The thing is, the Mafia can get away with investigating for as long as they want, because we don't get anything to hold against them except what they say.

Ugh. I'm not going to vote yet, as I don't see anyone being too suspicious yet, and I don't want to no-kill yet.

Hence why I accused two players. It's a good way to get a statement without resorting to killing anyone early on. If they don't answer the accusation they are immedietly suspicious and if they do answer it, sometimes what they say can be suspicious to others.

That works great, until everyone accuses everyone else and we just end up no-killing because nobody is taking it seriously.

That gave me a great idea. We'd take this game a lot more seriously if we got a small 4-12 hour temp ban when we die.

Wouldn't work on me, as this Mafia game is quite literally the only reason I'm on JUL at all; a temp ban from the game would do jack squat to make me be more serious. >_>

Oh, and Snifit seems to have already said his piece on that subject.

I take this game plenty serious as it is =/

And besides a temp ban wouldn't do me a lot of good as the most of my posts are in the mafia thread.

Regardless of how seriously you take this game, at the end of the day, this is all just for fun. Adding real penalties to a game about luck as much as it is about strategy is simply a nasty thing to do, and it won't happen as long as I'm in charge. (It probably won't happen as long as the current staff is in charge of the board either.)

With that out of the way, let's try and get back on track here.

Uh, no. Mafia is a game. Being killed in Mafia shouldn't cause consequences on the rest of the board that are usually reserved for continuously problematic users (spammers and the like). When you lose in a home Monopoly game, you don't lose real money. When you lose a game of basketball in high-school PE class, you're not suspended from school. Banning someone on all of Jul, even temporarily, for an outcome of a game when the user did nothing normally banworthy is just dumb.

Wow, guys. I really thought that was a joke and you go spitting out serious responses at CB. Poor CB.

I'l still hoping the next night might bring something. Investigations are pretty much a safe method, though... I wonder if traps should affect them at least to avoid these cases.

stalls the game a bit too much

This is very smart, actually. Now, who could have thought of such a tactic..


I cannot believe no one else noticed this.

It stops just short of accusing me but is clearly intended to be aimed at me and getting others at my throat.

Vote: Sanky

I do believe this was what. Your first post of the game, at that?

Also yeah others have touched on this but - the mafia are probably stalking/rolecopping as we speak soooooo letting them get even more of a info advantage beyond already knowing who each other is is NOT A GOOD IDEA.

Wait.. you?
*Sanky scrolls up
Incorrect; it was my third post.
I didn't really mean it at you, I actually meant it the other way around—as in, we need to kill somebody to stop the mafia from just inspecting everybody every night. I didn't say it in case I was missing something I guess, but yeah, it's what I thought.
I could say more things in my defense, but this should explain it certainly wasn't directed at you.

EDIT: And just so you know, I didn't really have anybody in mind when uttering that last sentence.
