Re: Countdown

It's turning into a plane. No idea where or why yet though. I wonder if the GLR is going on holiday soon?

Re: Fleeting thoughts

I can't for the life of me imagine doing a single 60 hour week The closest I've come was a series of 52 shifts from back when I was doing a summer internship at the same time as my ongoing term-time part time work. Would start work at around 8.30am and, aside from the time it took to get from one w...

Sounds like you've got your hypothesis there. I suggest you test whether your thoughts need testing.

Re: TV and film thread

Spiderman: No Way Home:
Spoiler (Show/Hide)
I must say, I'm really impressed with how the trailer subverted my expectations with this film. Also shows that I haven't watched the other Sony Spiderman films recently enough that it took me a significant amount of time to realise the other Spidermen actors were from those.

Re: Secret Santa (Belated) Signups

I'm not going to sign up as a player, what with an imminent birth (as in, I should have a child by the time this game starts!). However, I'd be happy to either act as replacement of last resort, or comod (no guarantees how much time I'll be able to commit in either case).

Re: Flavour TBD 13p Role Madness Mafia Interest/Signups Thread

at this point i'd rather we start the secret santa game we normally play in december as that is more meaningful to me personally, but idk if we have anyone interested in modding it I thought someone on our Facebook group said they could mod it? Suzaku maybe? If not, I'm happy to step up again. No p...

Re: Halloween Mafia 2021 - The Party Trap - Day 7

A small part of me thought we were both recruitable, so claiming to be unrecruitable was throwing away a potential cult win if Seven was successfully recruited. Oh well. This gets a frowny face from me. Play to your current win condition to the best of your ability. I mean, if I'd even suspected th...

Re: Halloween Mafia 2021 - The Party Trap - Day 7

Thanks all for game, and especially Sabrar and Madge for modding. Flavour was fun! I know I technically won, although I don't really feel like that was the case. It's a shame that Zeniba was able to successfully recruit me that last night, as I was still clinging onto a last-ditch (albeit probably u...

Re: Halloween Mafia 2021 - The Party Trap - Day 6

I've got a better plan: wait until Zeniba gets modkilled for inactivity leading to a Town win? Or maybe moody self hammers and we hope Zeniba doesn't come online to recruit someone.

Re: Halloween Mafia 2021 - The Party Trap - Day 6

There's no guarantee that all town are recruitable. Best case, at least one of Seven or I aren't, and we can still win.

We could gamble on your kill failing, but haven't he track record so far...

Also, I personally prefer Cult to Mafia :P

Re: Gojoe Memorial Mafia Thread

Halloween 2021: I was earlier debating whether I should claim something like cult doctor to encourage Zeniba to recruit me rather than Seven. Would that be bad form? :D More seriously, if the Cult Leader has been this unlucky that they weren't able to recruit on the 4 nights they were alive, I feel ...

Re: Halloween Mafia 2021 - The Party Trap - Day 6

I've skimmed through the thread in an attempt to identify how Zeniba's cult recruit might be restricted. I believe it is restricted in some way - I have this memory that it was stated as such at some point, but can't be certain. If it isn't, there's nothing we can do about it. I've ruled out it as b...

Re: Halloween Mafia 2021 - The Party Trap - Day 6

@Zeniba, if you don't vote moody, you'll lose, because tonight moody will kill you.

Will place my vote in a few minutes. Just looking at something re how cult might be restricted on recruits.

Re: Halloween Mafia 2021 - The Party Trap - Day 6

Oh, fun fact, if we eliminate moody, one of Seven or I is guaranteed to win, since one of us must be recruited in order for Cult to win. Unless Cult can't fail, in which case mods might call it after we eliminate moody.

For what it's worth, moody is being truthful, as far as I can tell. I tracked him last night to LaserGuy. For the full list, it's: N1: tracked Bessie, no visits N2: watched LaserGuy, no visitors N3: dead N4: watched LaserGuy, no visitors N5: tracked moody to LaserGuy @Seven, our win is by eliminatin...

Halloween 2021: That's at least twice this game posts have been made post-hammer... Okay, so assume that town can still win and Zeniba is Cult Leader, because if not, it doesn't matter what I do. Setup is currently either 4-0-1, 3-1-1, or 2-2-1. For 4-0-1, it would require two mafia members dead but...
