Post any and all information you have here pertaining to the foolish townspeople we hope to prey on, including:

    Information about who is what special role
    Candidates for conscription
    Who completely and totally trusts you (which we can use to advantage

People I know are fairly good strategists, so it might be useful to kill them off (or conscript them) sooner than later if we know they aren't special roles:

- Daniel
- Hilary
- JJ
- Jonathan
- Joy
- JY

Feel free to add to the list of "dangerous" players.

If we know they *aren't* special roles?! We can conscribe any special roles besides the monster (whose identity will be known as the monster when s/he comes into game), so it's actually better to do so, not counting the mad scientist (who we want dead because of the monster). If there is anyone with both a special role AND an item (besides the mad scientist, who apparently cannot halt work on his monster =.="), we want to conscribe them, in my opinion. Even just randomly conscribing one of the people with a fake ID might be the best option for us, actually, or possibly kaima, who has the medkit.

I'm weaseling myself in quite well with a number of people. Kai doesn't have the medkit, the mad scientist does. I think this is okay for now. We have 6 days to kill the scientist before the monster arrives, and plenty of time after to still knock off the mad scientist. I am running for mayor and have about 6 signatures so far.

Ah, damn, they went through with that already. The mad scientist was smart to take the initiative, and now Kai and s/he also have an alliance =.=" Thanks for the information gathering, that was quite useful.

Edit: actually, if the idea that Kai knows the mad scientist's identity is correct (which is likely since I can't think of anyone but us that would lie to her about that), then the most useful person to conscribe may be her, because she can tell us who that is.

The thing is that we'll want to kill Laura for the search warrant, so we can take the medkit off of the mad scientist.

Good idea. Should we kill Laura, then conscribe Kai?

Don't conscribe Kai.

I obviously would never do anything without the entire mafia's approval, but please state a reason. How else do we get information on who the mad scientist is?

9.9 That's honestly really rude. What makes you think you're less likely to do so than I?

If I name a name, you might avoid a person, scope that person, whereas if you don't know, you can't mess up. Not trying to be rude, just trying to make sure we don't slip. We can't kill the scientist until at LEAST tomorrow anyhow, so no reason to cause trouble now.

Chat log transcript from Jason Chiu. Even during real Mafia games, he's the type of person who - if he doesn't have a special role - sits back and watches the scene pan out in front of his eyes. So I found it a little suspicious when he initiated the chat... he's also on the defensive most of the time, and very secretive. We two are usually super good friends and tell each other -everything- from failing grades to how long he made out with his semiformal date. So I just find it strange he's being so tight-lipped.

(10:31:03 PM) Jason Chiu: did you go to random to kill someone?
(10:37:53 PM) vivian: of course not
(10:37:59 PM) vivian: the kill happened at 6:49, i was asleep
(10:38:05 PM) Jason Chiu: k, just amking sure
(10:38:09 PM) vivian: or maybe -you- did
(10:38:17 PM) Jason Chiu: hehe, i am close enough
(10:38:35 PM) Jason Chiu: butrly, are you mafia?
(10:41:12 PM) vivian: no :(
(10:41:24 PM) Jason Chiu: aw, sad about it?
(10:41:43 PM) vivian: i wonder if alex really randomizes the role selection
(10:41:46 PM) vivian: or if he actually picks people
(10:41:55 PM) Jason Chiu: he might just pick
(10:41:59 PM) vivian: if he does pick, i guess it makes sense, i was a special role last IAP's games
(10:42:14 PM) Jason Chiu: are you nothing?
(10:42:18 PM) vivian: yeah :(
(10:42:21 PM) Jason Chiu: you remember you can still be conscripted
(10:42:24 PM) vivian: what are you? =p
(10:42:38 PM) Jason Chiu: well, i dont think i should tell you
(10:42:43 PM) vivian: esp if the mafia are in random, i doubt they'd go out of their way to conscript me
(10:43:07 PM) vivian: fuck man, i don't even know who half these people ARE
(10:43:12 PM) Jason Chiu: all randomites
(10:43:17 PM) vivian: i'm going to be killed by someone and not even know they're playing D:
(10:43:33 PM) Jason Chiu: all the random people are gonna die first
(10:43:52 PM) vivian: well then it'd be easy to guess who the mafia was, if it's a last-man-standing kind of thing D:
(10:44:05 PM) vivian: i doubt the mafia would choose that route... though if they did, that'd make it easy for us
(10:44:39 PM) Jason Chiu: well, but it'd get rid of all randomites, then the rest no one knows
(10:46:12 PM) vivian: haha, i guess that works...
(10:46:35 PM) Jason Chiu: oh, dont' suspect me if that so happens to come true
(10:46:39 PM) vivian: and the only people i know are....
(10:46:52 PM) vivian: you, me, di, daniel, hilary, JRC, JJ, Joy, and JY
(10:46:54 PM) vivian: all the J's
(10:47:04 PM) vivian: that's..... 9 out of 26 people
(10:47:05 PM) Jason Chiu: haha
(10:47:15 PM) vivian: man, i am so screwed. thankfully i have distance on my side
(10:47:22 PM) Jason Chiu: kinda
(10:47:25 PM) vivian: kinda?
(10:47:29 PM) vivian: >___>
(10:47:37 PM) Jason Chiu: you have only a bit of distance
(10:47:42 PM) vivian: i havemore than you do!
(10:47:48 PM) vivian: unless you're not worried because you're really mafia
(10:47:54 PM) Jason Chiu: mwahahaha
(10:48:07 PM) vivian: i'm not opening my door for you D:
(10:48:12 PM) Jason Chiu: hey vivian, let's get something to eat at midnight
(10:48:27 PM) vivian: sure
(10:48:33 PM) vivian: where
(10:48:33 PM) Jason Chiu: wait wut?
(10:48:34 PM) vivian: =p
(10:48:41 PM) vivian: mafia would be retarded to make a kill at midnight
(10:48:48 PM) vivian: it gives the town 24 hours to discuss
(10:48:48 PM) Jason Chiu: why?
(10:48:58 PM) vivian: okay then, we can go somewhere and you can kill me =p
(10:49:08 PM) vivian: and give everyone a long time to figure it out and appropriately vote you off
(10:49:19 PM) Jason Chiu: hehe, but it's not me!
(10:49:36 PM) vivian: then you shouldn't be surprised that i said yes :p
(10:49:39 PM) Jason Chiu: but how would they know?
(10:49:51 PM) Jason Chiu: it's just you and me that would know, and you wouldn't be able to talk
(10:49:54 PM) Jason Chiu: brb
(10:49:56 PM) vivian: trying to get infos out of me, huh

^ I think he's a special role, perhaps investigator.

Talked to Daniel Grazian - I think it would be good to keep him alive for a bit - he seemed very suspicious of Ami and Lydia, and he apparently has a reputation for being good at Mafia - it would be useful for us to have him steering people in the wrong direction.

^ agreed. He's a very loud-spoken person and has a tendency to jump to conclusions at times. Last IAP we played a game in which the first person that he trusted (and thus divulged full information to) ended up being the last mafia standing. Do you know his opinions on fluffy and JB yet? And does he seem to trust you well?

Yeah, people aren't terribly suspicious of Lydia, but Lydia targeted both me and dgrazian, and people suspect dgrazian.

I agree with JB Parkes' analysis.

I was tempted to play the first few days without knowing what role I was :)
