Don't get your hopes too up though, I still don't trust myself to keep a good work/life/mafia balance. Right now I'm supposed to be working and doing some taxes... :(

Meta Mafia

Spoiler:
I decided to go with Bessie because a) I love her so much and b) she's got basically the opposite style to me and I always talk about rebooting my meta and I want to see how it feels to BE bessie.

This also means that I am REALLY STRUGGLING right now.

I have made a draft post up in google docs because BEssie must do something like that because SHE ALWAYS USES SMART QUOTES

Also I won't be posting from work because Bessie NEVER posts from work. But because I am not Bessie I will be composing my posts at work because like I actually have stuff to do (oh wait I have to meet with my project owner and discuss design review comments in like an hour NVM)

and yes I can't talk about ME ME ME ME ME on the thread so I am going to be posting a lot of spoilers

also yes it is very Madge to copy Bessie's avatar but to make it about her own pooch.

IN OTHER NEWS: Vanilla townie. D1. FML!

Meta Mafia II

Spoiler:
Ok I’ve forgotten just how much work it is to set up a game, and I hardly even did anything! Diemo did all the hard stuff! And I was so worried that I was going to let Diemo down, because something important came up last night and I didn’t have a chance to write the flavor for the role pms. But today by an extremely unusual twist of fate I was home at 1:00 pm (this never happens). So I sat at my keyboard and furiously pounded away for a couple of hours, and wrote the flavor for most of the submissions (some players submitted multiple names and Diemo hadn’t made his decisions yet). Except for Snark, Diemo wrote that one, because most regrettably I think I only played one game with Snark (his and my times on the forum never seemed to intersect, the last period he was active I wasn’t playing because BessieDog was dying). Then Diemo showed up, finalized the setup, and assigned the names and the roles (yea! everyone got someone on their request list, except Vicarin and threetwoone, who didn’t submit names, they got two of the roles I had written up because they were on someone else’s list). I tidied up the flavor for the OP, and then Diemo did the important parts; he set up the game thread, put together the flavor with powers and alignments for the role pms, and sent out the role pms.

I am already laughing my head off at LaserGuy’s and Madge’s avatars and confirmation posts. They both already receive an A+ for role playing.

Giving it one more hour before Sabrar shows up, at 3:00 am his time.

Oh, and gotta love the RNG.

@Heuri in the sign-up thread: I'd be happy to run a newbie-friendly setup again if I can think of some flavour, if nobody else wants.

Oh, it could be:

OPTICAL/AUDITORY ILLUSION MAFIA

it'll be Laurel VS Yanny, Blue and Black VS White and Gold, The Dancer Is Spinning Clockwise VS The Dancer Is Spinning Counterclockwise, Whatever That Shoe Colour Controversy Was.

.... no i don't think i can write coherent flavour on that premise. What is topical now?

STEAMED HAMS??? STEAMED HAM MAFIA?????

YESSSSS

Great now I want to make a setup themed around it rather than recycle one off mafiascum

Roles will include:

Steamed Hams but every time he says Steamed Hams the speed increases by 15%
You are a vig, but you can only use your power if each day you write at least 50% more posts than the previous day

Steamed hams but there's a different animator every 13 seconds
You are a jack of all trades and will be assigned a new power each night. The powers are predetermined before the game but you will not know your power for that night until night falls.

Steamed hams but it's voiced by jeff golblum
You have the ability to send messages to everyone else who is playing, but they will be all signed "Jeff Golblum" (i.e. will be anonymous)

Steamed Hams but it's all star
You are scum and your kill is only active if you start your first post each day with the next word in Smashmouth's All Star (e.g. your first post on D1 must begin with Hey, your first post on D2 must begin with Now, etc)

IT WILL BE THE MOST WELL-BALANCED GAME EVER

I'm the town jailkeeper! Holy shit I rolled town.

On a side note, I lost my old meta file and I'm realizing I don't quite remember Snark's meta, other than that he does many short posts, usually no longer than a few sentences, and that he tunnels. Which means this should be pretty easy! I need to hit the stacks and read a few games of his again.

LaserGuy sucks, who forgets me? I have the best meta on this board, even if I haven't played for five or six years now. Yknow, back in the Good Ol Days when people looked for ALICE and ootd just made up shit as he modded his crazy games. Lemme say, *I* remember LaserGuy, so we must have overlapped somehow at some point. I was good, and then this is what sealed it and turned me into a crazy meta player ('cause I was always right...so for a while it was meta if I survived n1 or not, then that was too easy and so then it was use it to protect town by claiming they are scum, etc etc.) Princess Bride, killed N1, called every single anti-town person anyway.

Meta Mafia II

Spoiler:
Playing as Vytron is going to be...interesting. As vanilla scum, I can die to protect the other two PR scum, and I can be annoying to town and be in character. Typical self-vote will likely be early on.

In other news, how the chirp did fb!Snark end up putting all three scum in Team Orange? And his reasoning on it is just plausible enough to make the theory look good. Scum tactic should be to ignore it as early game weirdness and play through.

Meta Mafia

Spoiler:
THIS IS SO MUCH FUN. I really love playing in Bessie's style. I don't think I can keep it up - maybe not even for the rest of the Day - but I'm going to try to do it for as long as I can. Forcing myself to pick through everyone's posts for bad points is fun. But would be tiring long-term. And spending like 10 minutes going through an old game thread for one reference so I could achieve my goal of underline linking something is definitely not a good use of my time.

and Sabrar, no, Bessie hasn't been mentoring me. I gave her access to my google doc I'm using to keep intel on Bessie and draft posts, but that's only because I know she'd LOVE the attention / peek behind the curtain / etc.

@Bessie because I know you're reading this and have a huge database of mafia content, do you have some links to really characteristic debates you've had with Sabrar or similar? Maybe some posts you would particularly like me to try to emulate?

I am dreading having to make a town-scum list but I have to due to woof-grr.

I'm not taking winning this game too seriously, so I am going to take some pretty arbitrary scumreads and just follow them through as much as possible (which as bessie is great). Given my success when I actually try I'm not too concerned about this.

Sorry about that, Diemo assigned the roles. You should have known anyway that it was not destined to be. Hmmm, wouldn’t that have been the most epic game, though, with Sabrar and I playing each other. He would be playing a passive-aggressive, stubborn, tunneling, mean little female puppy, and I would be an assertive overconfident calculating know-it-all that is never wrong. We could have spent the entire weekend shitposting. :lol:

I was thinking about playing but RL is so busy this month, and anyway I really wanted an opportunity to comod a game, because I’m too insecure to mod one by myself. My thoughts were to play as Sabrar (but wouldn’t have happened because), Zen (pull a gambit like claiming a role that would most likely never be in the game like a Deprogrammer and see where it went?), or BoomFrog (do something totally outrageous like sheep every other player in turn and switch my vote in every post?). :shock:

Madge!bessie wrote:@Bessie because I know you're reading this and have a huge database of mafia content, do you have some links to really characteristic debates you've had with Sabrar or similar? Maybe some posts you would particularly like me to try to emulate?
Sorry Madge, gotta play mod so I’m not even acknowledging your post. But if anyone is interested, my and Sabrar’s entire history can be summarized by reading X-men mafia starting at about page 11. Or just go straight to this post.

Commentary on the game so far.

Super impressed by everyone. They’ve all managed to incorporate the subtitles of their characters into their roleplaying so well.

Hahaha, Sabrar must be so frustrated having to play like Zaphod Beeblebrox when he is really DeepThought. :lol:

Fun fact, Djehutynakht’s avatar is a picture of a mummified head on display at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (he’s said this before somewhere on this forum). See more about it here. Ooooh, and it looks like the head was recently confirmed to be that of Djehutynakht, and not of his wife as some believed, read about it here, tmyk. :)

LaserGuy’s going to make me split my side open. So is freezeblade, his Snark-list post is brilliant!

Hmmm, I have said it before, in like every game, Madge is one of the craftiest cleverest players and can’t be trusted, and everyone that says she is a passive player that only posts stream-of-consciousness thoughts is WRONG . Interesting that she can copy my grammar and playstyle and do the same type of analysis and snarky comments that I do if she is properly motivated. :wink:

Pity that they will all probably get down to business soon and taper down the role playing. Except for LaserGuy. I predict he will continue with this as long as he is in the game. 8-)

Madge!bessie's remark about LaserGuy!madge is my new favourite thing. It's an uncannily bessie-like response to an uncannily Madge-like post...

Meta Mafia 2:
Spoiler:
It's not very freezeblade-y to give long thorough notes posts of re-reads, so I'm going to put my usual notes in this spoiler instead.

freezeblade - Notes me playing him. Thinks it sounds scummy. Promises to vote people for confirmation post. Votes me after I point out that I am. Arbitrary grouping of playeres into teams. Puts SDK, Mark, wam as one team labelled as alright. Puts mpolo, Vicarin, Madge as obv-town. Puts me, moody, LaserGuy as scummy team, due to suspect members. threetwoone, Sabrar, plytho - fan of their team, indie vibes. Teams were randomly selected. Grouping mechanic intended to create discussion.

LaserGuy - Lots of role play talk. Calls Sabrar town and Vicarin scum in amongst a deluge of role-playing comments, but answers his numbers question anyway.

Madge - Welcomes newbies. Asks threetwoone to introduce themself. Doesn't like freezeblade's comment about voting for confirmation posts. Nothing to pick up from confirmation posts. Thinks Mark's question about PMs is scummy and he was trying to day chat with buddies. Challenges plytho over assuming no day chat, and thinks he's trying to lull into a false sense of security, and says we should be conservative until we know more. Doesn't think we should claim fruit initially. Thinks it's useful for fruit vendor to claim who received fruit. Responds to Mark on Werewolf/SK thoughts. Thinks we should be concerned about the possibility. Suggests that Mark might be fishing, and that he's being active because he has to check PMs. Notes Sabrar's picking on freezeblade for limited content. Various other comments on Sabrar reads list. Wants actual opinions from moody. Thinks Mark's focus on werewolves etc is possible newbies scum tactic. Thinks wam and Mark could be scum buddies. Coaches Mark on being found scummy. Doesn't like Sabrar focusing on her role and not on catching scum.

Mark - Pregame, asks for thoughts on werewolves/SKs. Also asks about PMs stuck in outbox. Points out that Madge never answered his question, despite her promising to, found it suspicious. Brought up the question for conversation initially, and then as defence to attack. Lurked previously, because didn't know what was going on. Votes Madge for trying to ignore SK/werewolf question.

moody - Answers Vicarin numbers question. Most worried by 9/2/2. No comment on fruit vendor. Posts very basic thoughts on SDK/me/Vicarin, basically saying that of those three he'd only be able to get a read on me eventually. Asks wam to comment on Sabrar/Madge/freezeblade in return. Piling on RVS is not scummy. Posts early reads list. freezeblade - neutral/slightly scummy (superficial), me - slightly townie (varied reasons), LaserGuy - insufficient data, Madge - townie (varied reasons), Mark - slightly scummy (interest in werewolves, and nothing else), mpolo - slightly townie (interesting setup specs), plytho - townie (discussion over fruit?), Sabrar - slightly townie (assorted reasons), SDK - neutral, threetwoone - insufficient data, Vicarin - neutral/slightly townie, wam - slightly scummy (defensive of Mark, 2/3 list thing). Put Sabrar as townie, despite everyone being scum due to "properly paranoid townie paradigm". Would watch Mark or wam, maybe LG N1.

mpolo: Decides not to bother with trying to guess from characters. Answers Vicarin's question on numbers. Thinks fruit vendor is low in utility. Likes setup 6. Having trouble separating role-playing from scum hunting. Concerned that SDK put wam at three votes during joke phase. Wam's response possible overreaction but understandable. Doesn't understand pressure on Mark. Neutral on fruit claims topic.

plytho: Assumes 10-3 no daychat until further info is available. Points out who knows what about the setup. Discusses with Sabrar on why we should claim on receiving an apple. Thinks we should wait until D2 to decide on what to do about it.

Sabrar: Thinks we should claim on receiving an apple. Wonders if I could be scum for second joke-vote. Thinks I'm normally against it, except when scum. Answers numbers question. Engages with plytho on apple discussion, pointing out that scum might know the setup already, and therefore town might gain more info. Gives early reads with everybody as scum, or no conclusion, except me as neutral and Madge as nice list. Thinks wam sounds defensive, threetwoone has good responses. Made reads list to generate reactions. Thinks more likely moody town, but otherwise not scum with Madge/LG, possibly with me. Would lynch me/Mark/Vicarin/wam. Doesn't like freezeblade's lack of content.

SDK: Apologises for lurking. Third to vote wam. Posts info on setup. Sabrar made good point on setup info re. fruit. Doesn't like being picked on (role-playing?).

threetwoone: Asks freezeblade about teams (didn't notice max of two fruit teams...). Answers questions re. experience from Sabrar. Doesn't expect much from his reads. Thinks Madge arguing with Sabrar is her own initiative.

Vicarin: Votes wam in first post. Asks questions about numbers. Sabrar's post weird, re. indie friends. Claims aren't going to narrow down setup for mafia much, but would help secondary scum faction. Discussing strategies at this point probably unhelpful.

wam: Eager to get started. Proposes discussion of 2/3 from me, Vicarin, SDK being scum. Asks mpolo about playing in accordance with Sungura's rules. Town points for Mark's chattiness. Eagerness was to try to live up to Sabrar's meta. Thinks piling on for RVS scummy, was fishing for reactions. Explains Mark read further. Wants Sabrar to make up his mind about his opinion on him. Getting weird vibe from Sabrar this game. Likes Madge's content. Neutral on freezeblade for added activity.

Normally I'd post and talk about my life and reply to Mark but I'm bessie now so I can't. I wrote up a reply in gdocs and am calling that good enough.

I did an EOI application today. It's like a job application Lite for a 16 month job doing something that sounds super cool and is far away from my Evil Boss. Also it's like $10,000 more per year which'd be nice. I'm not sure if I did a very good job but I tried. Maybe not my best but I tried. It was a bit of a moonshot anyway but anything to give you hope right? :lol:

I really do think Mark is being scummy it's not just bessie-play. At first I didn't really, just thought regular newbie, but the way he's reacting is interesting.

My greatest fear is that people are going to find my bessie personality more enjoyable to play with than they will find me to play with :lol:. But I'm glad people are impressed by my roleplaying ability, I'm doing a lot of work into it and am glad it's coming across.

Just never, ever expect me to do this again :lol:

Meta 2: Electric Boogaloo
Spoiler:
I think Mark believes that a werewolf has a recruit ability, when the Matrix 14 page linked in 1st post clearly gives the werewolf faction an NK and not a recruit ability. I know there are other places where werewolf is synonymous with cult leader, but mafiascum doesn't roll like that (because mafiascum is horrible and stupid). I thought this confusion would get sorted out by now, since it goes back to pre-game, but maybe soon?
