I don't know how useful No Execute will be this game, but I think we should arrange a scheme now in case the need arises later.

This game, No Execute can't be chosen past the first day, but happens for a perfect tie. We can arrange this by putting in equal votes towards two players with no prior votes. Mafia could break this only by revealing a member.

I propose we make two squads, A and B, each with 5 players. Volunteer to be on a squad only if you can commit to being consistently active to vote as required. If you don't act as agreed, you will be executed. I believe we can get 10 committed players, replacing as deaths happen, and that 5 votes is enough to ward against any accidental third option.

Thoughts?

Seems reasonable to me - we should perhaps set a time at which you should check forums to know if this sort of vote is being used by, something along the lines of 10:20PM.

To be clear, this still can be broken by having mafia out a single member (I initially misread your post in a way that suggested you argued otherwise).

I am opposed to this system, because it is too easy for a player to mess it up by forgetting to vote, or by a mafia "forgetting" to vote.

I volunteer to be on team A, but I think executing a random person is generically good, because so much of the town is provable roles.

@isaac we just have to be very firm about the you have to vote if you signed up thing.

OK, I volunteer for Team B.

Can we enter this info into the spreadsheet?

I agree that it's almost always better to execute a random (minus gay knights and innocent children) person than to no-lynch. But in case we do want to no-lynch for some reason, we want to be able to coordinate it quickly.

I'll be on either team. But I don't think it will be very useful. In particular, the only time when we maybe want to no-lynch is when there's chaos for some reason at day-end. But that's precisely the situation when this plan is unlikely to work.

With that said, this seems like a good procedure to arrange a deliberate no-execution in a non-hectic situation. A full five on each side shouldn't even be necessary (3 might be easier) as long as all other townies are aware well in advance that they shouldn't vote.

I added a teams tab on the spreadsheet.

Anyway, there is a simple solution to the issue: we have teams default vote at the beginning of the day. Team A can default vote aok and Team B can default vote jakobw. Then we change away from no-lynch, rather than towards it, near the end of the day.

I don't know that I trust this system sufficiently to be *happy* to be a default target. I'm willing to though, I guess.

People do need to be careful to not let a single vote for you or aok happen on day 1, and to not have people unexpectedly voting for either of you on future days.

Agreeing to be on a team means that the person is agreeing that if they mess up, they deserve to be lynched. So people shouldn't be messing up in such a way that you or aok accidentally gets lynched.

There is the situation where there is a last minute lynch mob that disproportionately pulls voters from one team in such a way that the last-minute target loses to one of you. But we probably shouldn't be doing last minute lynch mobs anyway? We could also lower the number of members per team.

Note that there were 5 team A volunteers before you. I don't actually care about teams that much, so feel to rearrange the spreadsheet if this is a big issue.

Wait but we can actually vote for no lynch on day 1.

And I am generally of the opinion that we shouldn't lynch unless there's fairly damning, concrete evidence against the lynch target. Y'all know my views on this... So I think this plan is good, if we get team A and team B to vote for people we think are mildly sketchy but not outright lynch-worthy. That way is someone fucks it up, a townie gets lynched but we also expose a mafia.

We may want to downsize the teams s the game gets smaller
