Slight buddying from Clyme encouraging Snowflake to talk more, @Clyme and @Savage Snowflake does this mean you skipped out on taking the day chat? (this is a serious question)Alright, no worries. It'd still be good to see you around at least a little, so as long as you're contributing something, that's positive.Ooh, lala. We're in RVS, I see... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Wouldn't take the actions in D1 too seriously - or, not just D1, but the posts in the very beginning of it all. Anyway, disclaimer I won't be able to read or post all that often - or, at least, seriously, from 8:00 AM - 3:45 PM EST, weekdays. Will post more once I see a variety of interactions from more people or if someone posts a questionnaire but eh.
If it means anything, @Revival 's confidence so far makes me think townie over scum. Confidence can be a predictor of either alignments but from intuition, don't really see much of it.
I feel like it's a little early to start making assessments like that, but I'll take your perspective into consideration.
Could you go into this more or talk about his playstyle in general?
Devour is an interesting word choice. Not one, I'd personally pick in this setting.xP
What it means is that I don't want Snowflake to sink into the background just because she has to be away some of the time. While I'm not questioning the fact that she has other commitments, I still want to see effort here. As I've noted previously, it's far too easy for scum to just sink into the background and let town devour themselves.
How would I know if mafia chose abilities? Those are just their role options. Are you implying that the two mafia strategy would forego all abilities and hope to cruise? You talk of me planting seeds, but that looks at lot like what you're currently doing. Looking for implications that aren't there.How do you know that mafia chose any abilities? o.o They can select 0-3 abilities.
I'm just weary of people who want to leave comments like that without actually providing an explanation. It's like planting seeds.
Whatever you can or cannot garner in terms of information does not mean that it is vague or "safe." I'm not sure what you would've had me say instead, as I answered your questions fully. Again, you're still not really explaining anything.
Thanks for clarifying. Is revival experienced then?
Does your suspicious on Snowflake reflect on Clyme as well?Trigger Warning: red flags and FoS
For some of the veterans, day 1 is when we get the best reads. To me, this looks like you're indirectly distancing Clyme, buddying with Revival, and trying to make forget about early events day 1.
<<vote Salvage Snowflake>>
And then also giving an excuse for your absence, when you could have mention this before the game started. But Idk, I know you are still new, but this behavior looks highly suspicious to me. I'll be watching you for sure.
Oh, actually, disregard that comment stiletto. You see, when you said something to the likes of "The 2 Mafia's Choices," I realize now that you were talking about the possible role options of the two goons, not that they selected two roles from the following possibilities. That was just a misunderstanding on my part, sorry. You're right, no implications there, just a misunderstanding.How would I know if mafia chose abilities? Those are just their role options.

Trigger Warning: slightly defensive, seems convenient, *Owner wonders if the game is practically solved already but then again Owner knows to be wary of early scum deaths.*@Revival Not right now, unless there's any further evidence against him besides intuition from, like, one post.
@Clyme Yeah, definitely. Learned from the last game I participated in. And yeah, I have an MU account and the way RVS goes vibes/feels fairly differently from PerC, both from watching and being involved in games. And just a personal opinion that I feel scum would be less inclined to attract this much attention towards themselves D1 but meh. Would rather not attract myself to the WIFOM-ing as I feel it to be counterproductive.
@Actvscenei Don't want to use it as a justification but I feel like this is his play in general, at least compared to one I played with him prior to this one. But something worth looking into if the nervousness leads to indecisiveness and becomes consistent throughout, yeah.
Well then, let's talk strategy. Do you think Mafia would choose to NOT opt for any abilities and take on the entire game with just the two of them? If not, what roles would speculate they would benefit most from?Oh, actually, disregard that comment stiletto.

It doesn't mean that I'm not weary of your response to my response to your questionnaire, but as far as my prior comment goes, I just misunderstood the first line of your post.
I've played mafia elsewhereThanks for your thoughts, Axwell. For me, personally, I don't have the same bad vibes toward Revival. I mean, their play is a bit weird, but they're also new and it's RVS. I think what I want to see most is other people start participating. It's far too easy for scum to lurk about and stay out of the spotlight. That's how town devours itself.
Also, @Revival, is this your very first game, or have you played mafia elsewhere?
@Miyu, I tend to like keeping track your scummy behavior for the record.
There are no corresponding roles. Roles are randomized.So for example, if Mafia decides to select a Mafia Bulletproof, @Dyslexicon would send out a townie role variation to one of the vanillas telling them they're... what? Innocent Child?
What are the "corresponding" roles? Or does no one know that and that's what we have to figure out?
So out of these options, Mafia can only choose 3?
To clarify for everyone, it goes like this:
A1) For it. Once we see the flips, NKs, buddying/distancing, and reads, looking back on not just the RVS/D1 but the days early on in this game and the differences between interactions based off of events - especially unforeseen, will help with getting a better... idea on why someone may be doing and for whatever reason(s). In RVS, I think everyone is more vulnerable to slipping - which can be a good or a bad thing depending on which alignment you're in. I think it only really works if majority of townies choose to stay serious and focused. Consistently joking around strikes me as scummy, which is also why analysis in RVS is difficult to analyze objectively, especially if I haven't played in past games with certain people and don't know their "style". Which is why I don't pay too much attention to it until later on in the game, assuming I live that long.Questionnaire Time!!
1) What do you think of the RVS? Are you for or against it?
2) What is your opinion on pressure voting?
3) Which 3 roles do you think Mafia would have chosen?
4) How many games have you played? What is your town/scum role ratio?
5) Most people will have null reads this early in the game, who is on your radar (not necessarily scum or towny, but who are you keeping a watchful eye on at the moment)?
Alright, I'm up for that. Remember how I said that it depends on who the Mafia are? I actually meant that. I think veteran mafia would be less inclined to opt for day-chat. I also think veteran mafia would be less inclined to recruit the traitor since the traitor has a 1-shot BP otherwise and so there's a bit of a safety-net as far as night-kills go, and plus, it's a little bit of an unnecessary ability to take on when it adds another power role to town. As for the other roles, I'm not so sure. I'm thinking that a role cop may be a likely addition above all the others. I have a few questions pending in my QT for Dyslexicon and that will inform some of my other thoughts. I'll also reveal more about what I think about the setup later too. There are a few thoughts I'd like to keep close for now, just so the mafia team doesn't know exactly what I'm looking for in them, but yeah, those are my preliminary thoughts.Well then, let's talk strategy. Do you think Mafia would choose to NOT opt for any abilities and take on the entire game with just the two of them? If not, what roles would speculate they would benefit most from?
