Was talking with isaacg. He was explaining why he wanted someone elected mayor quickly, but didn't particularly care who it was. He said there's not much that a mafia mayor can do to hurt town, unless they're an experienced player who will run game, but town mayors do a lot to help town.

I'm not sure how sound that is - suppose a mafia mayor uses up one of the Count the Mafia? In fact, I think they *should* do so. Plus they should start feeding (potentially false) investigations through multiple proxies, etc. Also, even an inexperienced player could do lots of damage if advised by experienced mafia.

Yay for very active new players who are getting elected <3

This forum is going to be so lonely because it'll be a solid two days before ksedlar joins us :(

Eep. I'm scared for the mafia that one of them will get caught trying to kill ksedlar. I'm also scared that if this happens, the remaining two won't be gutsy enough to claim GN partners together.

I think they absolutely need to claim GNs together, because a trust network is going to get set up tomorrow and there are like 9 gay children this game. That will be really bad for mafia if they're not in on it, and a wealth of traps for mafia if they are in on it. I guess that's one reason not to have so many GNs in a game. (Then again, the fact that we publicly announced there would be lots of GNs means the mafia have a better chance of getting away with pretending there are 4 pairs instead of 3.)

Will Mafia make a kill in the last couple minutes of day? What is our Serial Killer up to today? Will ksedlar's plan to go to the EC party to get someone to bang her work? The suspense is real.

Also, I've really been enjoying watching ksedlar try to make herself a kill target. I feel bad though, because she's sick and forcing herself to be available for kills. I was hoping that as desperado she'd be able to relax a little more due to being bang-immune, not having to worry about paranoia texting, and only living 2 days. She's already picked up an extra desk shift and gone to a party. Go ksedlar!

Oh, my, gosh. This is such a mess.

- nastya kills ijc at 10:56 but doesn't report it until 11:12, when day has already been advanced on the web app. Since she's a new player and did make the kill in time, we decide to count it as day 1.
- nastya hasn't reported location or whether she's using any powers. We start messaging her and ijc on every medium possible but don't get an answer until 11:45 or so.
- we don't want it to be obvious that a new player made the kill, so gods take the blame for "forgetting" to post the location, and give another day extension
- aok takes the opportunity to kill jfrisch. This makes the web-app situation even sadder because according to the web app, aok lost one of his no-kill days on day 1, but in reality he hasn't. Yuck. Also, another day extension.
- we manually handle investigations / lynch votes

We're seriously considering not using the web app anymore.

Apart from day-incrementing screw-ups, I also think the mafia could have played this better. 2 mafia were near the kill site without great alibis. Neither will turn up guilty for the kill, but they didn't Frame so no one else will turn up guilty either. If they had Framed, they might both get off clean for the kill, and have gotten town to lynch someone other than AOK besides.

They could still *possibly* save AOK by claiming GNs with him? This would be *REALLY* risky, but it's conceivable that someone else killed jfrisch, framed aok, and got NPs to lie for them. This is potentially more plausible than aok having messed up NP-checking.

Then again, coordination is hard, so I don't blame any of the mafia-aligned players for this.

AOK apparently had the same thought. Unfortunately, it didn't work. Also I don't think AOK should have made this claim, because he's outed himself as SK now (as opposed to regular mafia). Mafia can no longer plausibly make it so he shovels as, say, Conscripted Priest, or something else that would throw people off.
