Re: I need a book recommendation (Renamed : Recom'd me a book)

Does anyone know a good book about robots/AI replacing humanity on Earth? Some of Stanisław Lem's lighter stuff is set in a universe where all the people are machines, and the protein entities who built the first few generations are mere lengends from time immemorial. You don't get to see the repla...

Re: MMM II - Day 3: The Massacre at Munroe High

And with a weird role like yours, you could easily be town or scum, as I mentioned. Quick response (the quoted part was leveled at me): A scum role-thief might make sense in a game where his individual sub-game is to figure out which of the townies even have a power for him to steal. Here, where ev...

Re: MMM II - Day 3: The Massacre at Munroe High

I figured that targeting the doctor as a jailer would be pointless because it would prevent him from using his power, so either I would keep jailing the doctor all game and he'd be effectively VT which would render two powers useless, or I jail him once and then scum can kill him anyway once I'm no...

My stereotype is the Follower: the guy who tries to get along with everyone by adapting to a group's established jargon and behaviour.

Quick phone-posted what-if thought: could the generalz and Madge thing be a scheme to distract any watchers, trackers and similar? Not necessarily collusion between both of them, but could be the goal for one of them if that person is in a scum group.
