Title: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: Chaos on August 29, 2007, 07:28:45 PM
Greetings, fellow spirits.

This thread is meant as a waiting room for the players who have been executed to talk about the game. All corpses are welcome, be you citizen or mafia. Live players are kindly asked not to post in this thread, as you have your own place to discuss the game, in the active thread.

DETAILS ABOUT GAMES IN PROGRESS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THIS THREAD!! Please do not post any speculation or information about the game that has not been revealed yet - you may only talk about things that have already happened. This thread should not ruin anything for the active players of the game, it is merely a place for us to hang out and chat about what has already happened while we wait for the current game to finish and a new one to start.


So how is the afterlife treating everyone? I always wanted an extra air vent in my skull... ;)

Well, since I believe more or less in reincarnation in some fashion, I'm not too upset about dying.

However, before reincarnating my energy into some other form, I think I'm going to hang out and continue to annoy you all. 

I wonder if you can come back as a movie?  Hmm.  I could be Troll 3 and torture people for ages and ages....or anything with Chris Rock or Adam Sandler.  Yup, those be my plans.

I was pretty surprised to see Torgos was a citizen.  I thought for sure you crossed out Conor's name on purpose.  What was up wit dat?

For some reason, I'm picturing this one as your reincarnation:

Fair enough, but I sort of meant in a less joking and more influencial kind of way. ;)

Also, does anyone have any spare towels? The cleaning lady hasn't brought me any new ones, and this wound just keeps going. Apparently, the afterlife doesn't have clotting.

I initially read this as "the afterlife doesn't have clothing", and I thought to myself, "Yay, I went to the good place!"

And all those purple marks on your face are very striking.

Then I read this and realized I must have been wrong.  Puns this bad would never be allowed in heaven.

Well that was an interesting twist.

Anyhoo, welcome to the party, boys. The pool is nice, but the hottub is only lukewarm. Also, just FYI, since this is the international afterlife, clothing is optional in the sauna. ;D

Hehe, your protests were great. I was really trying to steer an attempt to wipe out the Corbettini's in that turn, vote for Pyro while a Viglante kills TempestJonny, just couldn't convince enough people.

It was amazingly good luck on my part to identify the 3 Corbettini's in a row over my 3 guesses, Tempest, then Jasimon, then Pyro. For what good it did me.

I don't know, but it shouldn't be to hard to find the Italians now.

Well only if the informant speaks up. All they have to do is steer voting towards a civilian and take out another hit and they become the dominant voting force,  then do the same thing again. the whole thing could be over in about 1 more round (after this one).
Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: pyro on September 03, 2007, 10:04:41 AM
Haha thanks, I was really hoping the fact you were the informant and you were making this huge deal about me yet I wasn't dead yet would bring people to my side, but everyone just seems to flock in that game....  I'm just glad the Murphiosos caught on that you were the informant too and took you down, though I thought it'd take more heat off me but didn't :-P....


But yeah, at least you did end up playing a big part in the game.

It's cool, I mean that's how the game works, I love how TempestJonny did the whole 'Vote early for  my own teammate for everyone to see, but switch it over to the real target later before the vote is actually counted' thing.
Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: Chaos on September 03, 2007, 03:31:22 PM
In past versions of the game I have played, changing votes is not allowed for specifically that reason. It certainly makes it interesting though, because it gives people more of a chance to defend themselves (and also makes a smart mafia member harder to detect).

The game really does have very fascinating social aspects to it, and you can learn a lot about the sociological inter-relationships of individuals and groups by paying close attention to what is going on. Sometimes the flock are sheep... sometimes, they are lions. But sooner or later, there is ALWAYS a flock. :)

Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: Chaos on September 04, 2007, 07:57:21 PM
Nobody in their right mind tries to claim so blatantly that they are the informant, because it will only get you instantly whacked... unless they are willing to sacrifice themselves to finish off a final member of one of the families. They are both saying "all is lost if you vote me off" because there are so few citizens left, the citizens killing a citizen this round will give the mafia an almost guaranteed victory. This round is the citizens' last chance to ferret out one of the two remaining mafia and have a fair chance to win the game, otherwise they are pretty much toast.
Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: pyro on September 04, 2007, 08:49:44 PM
True, but it seems to me like they're trying to claim it while still being ambiguous about it...  Either way I doubt either of them will be snuff'd by the mafia this round

Well, yeah, once your cover is somehow blown or the citizens are getting stupid and lynching you, the most you can do is spill everything you know so that once they find out (the hard way) that you were an informant, they will at least hopefully have the brains to then go back and listen to what you were trying to tell them. :)

My father worked for the Oil Business and when he came back from Saudi/Iran/Iraq/Lebanon/South Africa he had a few priorities:

1) Get to know the newest arrival.

2) Provide a sister/brother for him/her.

Actually the order was probably reversed.

By the mid eighties he was back in the British Isles and I think they were able to think about you know making sure there were preventatives in place. :)

I actually thought you played very well, Minnesota. It took me until the 4th citizen vote to spot you, and I wasn't even positive of that until the mob hits for that round went through.

The hardest part about being in the mafia is not making it TOO obvious that you consistently vote along with the same 2 people. This difficulty can be accidentally made even more difficult if 1-2 of the members from the other family happen to vote along with you just by chance. Eventually, the citizens start to see voting blocks everywhere, and paranoia can set in (to your advantage, or not). :)

Well it went like this.

I knew TempestJonny, he was my first guess, due to his non-voting agreement with YoohooRiffer, only a Mafia dude wins with something like that.

Jasimon1 was my second guess because she wanted YR dead so badly.

The third guess was how I described it in the thread, it came down to Pyro and Doggan because we had been waiting for a bunch of people (you included) check in for that final vote/hit. Pyro and Doggan commented, then the hit came down, so I narrowed it to between those two, asked bout Doggan, got back he was a Citizen, so then knew Pyro which was when I was trying to swing the vote.

The next round started, I actually sent in my in my 4th guess, which, as Wilson Fisk should be able to confirm, was Minnesota, but he wouldn't answer until the Mafia Hit came in, which unfortunately, was me. :(

You never did answer why you didn't vote that round, I viewed not voting as a suspicious since Mafia could use it at a tactic to lay low, since as long as their family  wasn't a target for the citizens voting they got to get a kill anyway, so why bother drawing attention to themselves, like poor YR.
Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: Minnesota on September 05, 2007, 11:42:53 AM
I don't remember why I didn't vote, I suppose it had to do with Chris changing up the time schedule several times, but I honestly didn't do it intentionally, in fact are we sure I didn't vote... I never even bothered with trying to figure out what happened, ah well the important thing was I didn't do it on purpose.
Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!

Minnesota!  Your killer was Principal Skin-Trade.  Do with him what you must.

At least, there is a 50% chance he is.
Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: Chaos on September 07, 2007, 07:29:16 PM
Skin-Trade was an informant, not a vigilante.

Informants don't get to make any guesses about mafia members until after the first round. Whoever the vigilante is that killed Minnesota, they acted on their own without any information from an informant.

I know by my own rules for this thread I technically shouldn't be posting right now, but I WAS dead earlier (until I got better), so I just wanted to take a moment to say this, since it's related to your guys' conversation...

Mafia IS a psychology experiment. It was developed by a psychology (or possibly sociology, I can't remember for sure) professor in a Russian university, in the late 80's. He was attempting to demonstrate the principles of the hive mind, or mob mentality, to his students.

The transition from a live game to a forum game changed the dynamics somewhat, most notably in the areas of timespan, giving both the citizens and the mafia more time to think and strategize... in the original version of the game, there was no verbal communication between mafia members during their "hit" turn (they chose their target for the round by hand gestures only), and the citizens had very little time to think things through on their turn, so the mob mentality aspect was even more discernible.

I find the whole thing endlessly fascinating. The fact that it also happens to be a hell of a lot of fun to play is a nice bonus. :)

Well voting for someone is quite different from being a bad vigilante who randomly kills people without knowledge.  You have to make sure your kills are for the right people.  The citizens votes make enough mistakes.  You're supposed to counteract citizen ineptitude.

I think the rogue vigilante at least makes the game interesting.

I didn't care about your post in the game thread. I actually thought it was funny, and helped kill some down time. I was referring to the advice that YoohooRiffer posted during the middle of a game. I figured besides saying something like... "Hey! I'm trying to confuse and mislead these people, would you stop giving them good advise!"... i decided to simply quote the rules. Straight forward and real simple.

Sorry you took it personally, and it got yer' panties in a bunch. But it had nothing to do with you.

I was pretty disappointed to be knocked out so soon, it really was good cover to be mafia twice because I thought no one would ever suspect - I mean, what are the odds.  I think Chris's cat just walks on a print out of the names to choose haha.

Aw Rude, my Rom buddy, you're gone, too eh?  Ah well.

I knew that if i stuck my neck out, they'd cut my head off, Hebs.
But it's all part of the plan my fellow Romulan spy... patience.

Seriously though, MAFIA is pretty fun. And people get a little aggro, but that's part of the game. I mean, everything that i said in there was pretty much bullshit. You have to feign a few emotions for people to think you're serious. Ya' know, pretend that your offended that people accused you... or act like it makes perfect sense to kill someone. But i don't think it personally carries over to anything else, really. Unless some of you guys have a hard time realizing that it's just a fun game.

Then again, i think a few grudges definitely carried over from the first game.
Hope i didn't piss anyone off too bad by exposing their weak-mindedness! Bwa-ha-ha-ha!...

We really were doing quite well up until that last exchange.

If we had been REALLY evil / conniving, we could have announced ourselves to each other in the thread once Greg was dead, to make sure we didn't whack each other. Then  we would have had a voting majority of 4 to 3 after killing 2 citizens with the hits. :P

But that probably would have really pissed off a lot of people. ;)

No, I mean, the people still playing the game might have been a wee bit miffed if we posted in the thread and said "Hi, we're the mafia, and we're going to openly and publicly execute you all, and there's not a damn thing you can do about it." ;)

In retrospect, it might have been a LITTLE bit funny.

Actually, it's what I wanted to do all along as soon as we got a majority, but I decided it would have been far too evil, and never suggested it to Pak-Man or doggans. If I had known you goobers were really trying to get rid of me, I would have just posted in the thread and suggested it. :P

BTW, your team DID know that the mafia aren't supposed to kill each other, right? ;)

Hebs was purely an accident... we just assumed there was no way she would be mafia 2 games in a row, AND not be a mafia member on our team (the chances of someone being in the mafia twice and on the opposite team as you are about 3.06%)

it was a fun game, especially when ChaosFromOder was trying to swing the citizen vote my way.  I thought for sure i was as good as dead.  But in the final round, i thought either sideswipe or TempestJohhny was the informant, so i picked sideswipe(nothin' personal.)  That was my undoing.  Anyway, fun game...i'll play again.

I still don't think that there was any reason to be voting for Pak-man in that round.  I was just trying to come up with something tangible.  And I still don't get why Sideswipe switched his vote.  That seemed like a suicide attempt on his part and it really looked like he was trying to save your ass.  I was pretty sure I wasn't gonna make it very far.  I don't think I'd have that much fun if I just sat around and didn't try to stir the pot at all.   If you hadn't worded your posts the way I pointed out, I was gonna make a weak (but turned out to be true) case to finger Sideswipe as a Kali.

I can't decide which is more fucked up - the fact that jasimon1 got you killed by publicly posting her PM from you when you were the only person who had currently voted for Compound, or the fact that she actually had the audacity to say it was your fault you got killed.

There has been a lot of blind luck, but even more incredibly stupid decisions so far this game.
Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: Tripe on October 10, 2007, 07:09:28 PM
No your right it wasn't obvious at all until she posted the PM which is why I had to try the recovery play. She also killed Yoohoo on her own recognizance. Ah well it's only a game, and one which up until that point had gone well.

I know, and really the people to keep alive should be the informants, though depending on how the doctor rule is set that can be difficult to achieve .

I mean I'd have not had to go for Compound out of the blue had my vigilante not wasted their second hit on  a flail.

I sucked as an informant too but I even sucked when not really acting on anything I knew.  The one thing I know I never got to say, damnit.  It would be helpful at this point.

I've tried flying under the radar and got killed.  I tried to be more open in this game and that didn't work.  I suck at mafia...but it's fun :)  Sadly enough, I think I lasted longer in this round than in others.

Yeah, it was kind of rough for you, since I got killed before I even knew you were my informant (I only just now know for sure, since Tripe and jasimon are clearly paired up). Anything you learned after that point would only have limited usefulness so early in the game.

I still haven't gotten a chance to "thank" Pak-Man for that first round hit, either... (You broke my heart, Fredo.) ;)

You know what? I said exactly what I was going to do if my informant told me another mafia member. Tripe knew that if he PM'd me a name I was going to make it public. It's not like I posted his name.

No you didn't ,you asked for the name, not that you were going to post the pm. And you'd not have had to do that if you'd not pissed away the second hit you had.
Tripe knew that if he PM'd me a name I was going to make it public. It's not like I posted his name. Maybe he should have realized that by giving me the name and letting me post it, that he would be an obvious target.
Yes, silly me for assuming you'd be competant at the game. ::)
Don't blame me for his mistake and don't say I don't know how to play the game. I'm still in it, aren't I? I saved myself, didn't I?
The point of the game is to eliminate the mafia, and by saving yourself you removed the last person who was able to ask the games master the identity of mafia members because a) you were impatient and wasted a hit and b) you weren't competent enough to make the best of it when you were given a name of another mafia member. So no you don't know how to play the game. It is just a game but you're not terribly good at it. ;)

Note to my informant: you can still tell me if you know of any mafia. I may have used my last hit but since i"m getting offed this round anyway, I could publicly expose them.

What the hell do you think I meant in this post when I said I would publicly expose them? Are you seriously trying to say that you didn't understand I meant I would post it? Oh come on. I did what I had to to save myself. I've already explained why I took out Yoohoo so I'm not going to apologize for it any more.

You're not dead stop posting here. But since you can't even understand that part let's explain things to you.

As the vigilante you should wait till an informant tells you the identity of a Mafia member before you waste a hit. Yes don't explain it any further because your explanations are worthless. You wasted a hit and caused a major issue in the game. Like i said you aren't any good at the game. Sorry but that's the case.

And again saving yourself is not the point of the game you could have taken out a whole Mafia group if you'd not been impatient.

What a maroon, what an ultramaroon! ::)

I've got a bigger bone to pick with her than the rest of you.  She killed me for no reason!  I mean come on.  Vigilantes don't kill people if they don't know they're mafia.  That's a pretty common sense rule I'd think.  And if the person has led the charge to kill two mafia already...hmmmm...i don't know...DON'T KILL HIM?  I was doing great in this game too...

Also, just wanted to share a kind of interesting point.

Once it became pretty clear that jasimon was a likely vigilante, but before she said that compound was Kali, I actually was going to switch my vote from her to me because if she went down, and was pointed out by Dr. Jones as a vigilante, I was sure to go down in the next round, thus wasting two rounds on non-mafia.  Knocking myself out would have meant one less round wasted.

Didn't want to bring it up in my epitaph because it would have sounded stretchy and pathetic to someone who thought me mafia, just thought it was an interesting part of the game.

You were on my list too pyro.  Especially after you posted your vote without actually saying anyone's name.  You're evidence pointed toward voting for me but you said tank instead.  Plus you were being way to non-chalant about everything.

Yeah ya bastard i knew you were Mafia (wasn't sure which) but you and hmm couldn't name names here anyway, offed me before I could ask the GM about you. ;)

haha yeah...  that was annoying... I was hoping to take out the last nazi for a while because I figured this was going to happen....

What would have been really funny is if I had acted on my early suspicions of you and whacked you in the first round before I even found out who my informant was. I still would have been toast on a stick (Pak-Man, you bastard! ;)), but it certainly would have made the game very interesting. :)

Like I said earlier, it seems like I'm not going to be allowed to play mafia on this forum for awhile, because I keep getting whacked really early on. I suppose I should take it as a compliment. :P

Yeah, I know. I knew that it would have been either one or the other of you who suggested it, and that the other would agree. I suspected that you might be in one of the families shortly before I got killed...  and once I did, I knew for sure. In retrospect, it was probably a pretty damn smart move to off me so quickly, even though it kinda sucks from my perspective. ;)

And tank, I didn't discount you and I'm not failing to give you credit, it's just that I haven't seen you play before, so didn't know your style yet. :)

If a round ends with one citizen and one mafia member remaining, the game ends in a stalemate and both are considered victors.

This is quite a different rule than I've played.  I think if this happens it should be a Mafia win.  They managed to evade citizens and so the citizen don't deserve to win, just the remaining Mafia member.  It doesn't make sense for the citizen to win as the mafia would have killed them in the next round if the game went on.  I think victory should only go to the Mafia member who did a great job, not a citizen who screwed up.

Well, it's not really fair to bring it down to a vote when there are just 2 people left because the votes cancel each other out. Some people play that at that point it goes by who has the most accumulated tie-breaker votes, but that is not the standard ruleset. If there are only 2 players left, those 2 players win regardless of who they are. It's also a "stalemate win" if you are playing Highlander rules with two mafia families, and the last 2 people standing are members of the opposite families.

So it looks like "whoever" the last mafia member (;)) is is going to win, along with whoever they decide not to kill.

The final nazi is the second person I suspected as an informant...so, watching the game and being 100% certain who it was made it very interesting.

The nazi is a fine player indeed.  Makes me glad I didn't just blab what I knew before I got killed (I thought about it because I kinda knew I was dead).  It would have been a lot less fun to read :)

The rule makes sense. If you're the last remaining mafia member, you'd be dead otherwise. Once it gets down to the last round, the citizen vote would kill the mafia member before the mafia member can call in the hit.

Post by: Tripe on October 15, 2007, 11:59:36 AM
The Bonehead Award has been awarded to jasimon1, for pretty much single-handedly dooming the citizens. You acted on impulse without waiting for information from your informant, killing a citizen who had already successfully uncovered two mafia members. You then outed yourself, in the process dooming the only player left who could figure out for sure who the remaining mafia member was: your informant. This is the cardinal sin of a vigilante. Considering how low a profile TripeHoundRedux had been keeping up until you bungled Round 4, chances are pretty low that he would have been killed by a mafia hit before he discovered Steve-O's identify if not for you exposing him.

Vindicated!  :)

Not really.  In this specific case Dim would have voted for Steve-o and Steve-o for Dim.  In the tie Dim has more tiebreaker votes and so would be killed.  Ultimately this is a solely Mafia win.

Actually, I would have had more tiebreaker votes in that case, and would be dead.  Had I been able to win by tiebreaker, I would have put the hit on Dim, and jasimon1 would have lost by tiebreaker.

In fact, that's exactly what I was shooting for until I asked Chris for clarification on the rules, and learned that I couldn't win by tiebreaker (and it's been in the rules all along, so the fact that I didn't know that is entirely my fault.)  Had I known that a few rounds earlier, I would have forfeited my hit and set up the possibility for an outright win.

But of course, then things might have turned out entirely differently.  In the end, I'm happy with a tie, since I thought that I was dogmeat from the moment my Nazi-mates were killed off in Round 3.

I personally think since the mafia outwitted the citizen, they should get all the spoils.  Dim shouldn't be rewarded for falling into every trap that was set.

And thanks for protecting me. I was shocked I made it past the first two rounds anyway and that explains why.  I figured I should have been a goner by then anyway, judging by past games.  I think you guys hate me :)  That doesn't stop me from loving you, commie scums!

I quite agree.  I've mentioned this in the other topic, but if this was a qualifying round, I would have insisted on keeping my name off of the list for the Championship game.  The best thing I can do right now is acknowledge that I was a complete dunce during the course of this game, and that I should revamp how I play this game.

Hell, let's just say that I made it through this game simply because I was too dumb to die.  Because, come on, I was.  I fell for every trick in the book, hook, line, and sinker.  This made me a valuable (yet clueless) asset to the Mafia.  What else can I say?

Tee Hee I thought this was comming. Sorry about that Tank, I did think it was you based on voting patterns and then, toward the end, I began to suspect another person. Oh for a "writing a name down and sealing in in an envelope" feature. :)

Gosh darn it.  Would it kill the mafia to let me live for once?

Also Tripe you have to stop playing so suspiciously.  This is the second game where I have been convinced you're Mafia and the second time you turned out to be a citizen.

I really need to stop making rational arguments in this game. The Mafia always kills me after I do that...

And I have a surefire way for the Mafia to win this game. (Although they'll likely be able to do so without me.)

Post by: Compound on February 05, 2008, 08:47:53 AM
Well, since a few days have passed, I'll go ahead and reveal my plan (which, as it turns out, was completely unnecessary.)

The setup: There's 12 people left, and 5 Mafia members at the beginning of Round 5. If I was on the larger Mafia, I would have outed all of our members. This would concentrate the citizen's ire on us, but it would also tell the smaller mob exactly who the remaining citizens were. So, the only thing that could accidentally derail the victory would be if the larger mob accidentally killed a member of the smaller mob. So, after the citizen vote, it would behoove the other mob to out themselves as well.

Start: 7 citizens, 3 Mob A, 2 Mob B, 12 Total
Round 5: Citizens kill an "A", Both mobs kill a citizen. Remaining: 5 citizens, 2 Mob A, 2 Mob B, 9 Total
Round 6:  Citizens kill someone. Both mobs kill a citizen. Remaining: 3 citizens, 1 Mob A, 2 Mob B, 6 total.

At this point, the game's over since the mob members equal the remaining # of citizens. Of course, the actual game didn't need this...
Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: BBQ Platypus on February 05, 2008, 08:55:05 AM
Curse you, Greg McDuck!  Everything would've turned out great if you had only voted for Minnesota!  But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooo!  You were swayed by.......um....actually, they didn't really give that much of an argument at all, other than the fact that no one had suspected Bairman.

Seriously, if Greg had kept his vote where it was, we would've killed off the last Penguin member, ensuring that the Mafia could only make one hit at a time.  I would have outed myself as the informant, exposed one more mob member, and gotten killed.  Since there would not be enough mobsters left, the citizens would have won.
Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: Bairman on February 05, 2008, 01:50:35 PM
Now that the game is finally over... I have to accept the responsibility for the citizens' loss.  If I hadn't played my last round so aggressively in an attempt to egg on and draw out the remaining Mafia members, Minnesota would've been dead and we probably would've won.  Sorry gang.

Best of luck to all in the next game.
Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: BBQ Platypus on February 05, 2008, 03:57:35 PM
Actually, I consider it to be my fault.  I should have made the safe play and outed myself as an informant - I knew for a fact that you weren't mafia, and we would have taken out the last Penguin and outed the remaining Mafia members.  I would have taken the fall instead of you, and you, dignan, and Greg would be left to take out the remaining two.  My bad.

You want to know about ruffles? Some smarty-pants one time told me ruffles have bridges. He was wrong. They don't have bridges. They don't even have disulfide bridges found in the tertiary structure of protein strains. So I told him, "oh yeah? Well guess what you just won a billon dollars!" then 112 seconds later when I told him I was joking he had a heart attack and he had to go to the hospital, so everything worked out alright in the end.

I had a feeling James and Dim were mafia when I took out Dim.  I should have taken out James.  I thought about it. I even typed the words out, but went back to Dim because I thought the reasons I suspected James were cheating. . . it was really something he said in the chatroom.  I figured if I used that info, it would be cheating so  I went for Dim.

Screw that next time :)

Sorry guys.

*Note, it wasn't anything James said about the game specifically, it was just something he said about the game in general.  I don't want peeps to think I am accusing him of cheating.

Yeah when I've played this in person I've always preferred to narrate than actually play.  I guess I just like knowing things.

Now that I've been both Mafia and citizen a couple of times each, I've found that I prefer the role of citizen.  IMO, the game's more challenging when you have no team members to work with and have to figure everything out on your own.  Although I would like to try informant and vigilante at least once.

I'd like to be mafia at least once, I got to play vigilante but had the mob turn on me early.  I have a lot of fun doing the citizen role, but I think I'm a little to vocal to make it to the end of a game without the mafia taking me out.

Ehh, being dead has its perks, like when the entire thread erupts into a massive flame war where everybody and their mothers are accusing their parents of being Mafia members for reasons that contradict previous reasons as to why they voted for somebody else, and somebody can't get a word in edgewise without somebody pointing a finger and saying, "YOU WANT TO LIVE, YOU MUST BE IN THE MAFIA!"

Oh...and Tripe....I just picked a number and yours came up -- don't know why they all jumped after I mentioned you.  Last time around I had a reason to suspect ya' because you mentioned something that related to my user ID and I thought you were Mafia.  I was wrong then, but I got it right this time!!! :D ;D :D ;D

Well.....that was fun!  And at least I lasted a little longer than the last game.

Yoohoo -- After I saw that you were a vigilante, I figured your constant votes were a way of trying to signal your informant to check me out....too bad he/she didn't do that or you would have had me gone early on.   ;D  I don't know why the other family put a hit on you that round, but I had a feeling that one vigilante/informant team was still working and that it was only a matter of time before your suspicions of me were going to trigger that thought in some informant's head.  ;)

Awesome, you were actually mafia.  Maybe I still have my mafia radar after all.  It probably would have been wiser for you not to kill me though.  You pretty much sealed your death with that.  The other family probably off'd me to implicate you as well as they thought you might have been a citizen.

I picked Agent Ispep thinking that perhaps he was mafia, but also thinking that I'd accused him enough that if I didn't take him out, he might take me out.  Which he did!   :D  If was just a citizen, I could've just said "why would I kill someone whom I've strongly accused on the board, that'd be silly!"

All right, pardon the fleshy one in Purgatory, but I've seen the "Mafia taking out one of each" thing happen once; just not in a game I was playing.

It happened during the Star Trek-themed game.  Two Mafia members from opposing parties were accusing each other back and forth of being in the Mafia, trying to look like good Citizens.  Neither of them got the boot during the Citizen round, so they took each other out during the Mafia round.  I remember this fondly, if only because Rude posted a huge response to this afterwards and signed off, "To the glory of the Romulan Empire!"  It was pretty awesome.

Well, it's because we were being too good of a citizens.  Besides, it's not like we feel a kinship to other Mafia team.  In fact, they're probably more of our enemy than the Citizens.  With the Mafia, you need a majority of three to kill you off and there's no chance to defend yourself, but with the citizenry, you can make your case.

I gave each of you names for the story itself. To tie in with the entire Canadian motif, all of the Half-Blood names are tied in with Canadian thespians...the causalities to date...

Gracie/Big Trouble In Little China/Kim Cattrall = Lberia
Rack/Kingdom of the Spiders/Shatner = Raven
Pacey/Dawson's Creek/Joshua Jackson = Steve-O
Grimley/SCTV/Martin Short = Bairman
Utah/Point Break/Keanu = Greg
Tully/Ghostbusters/Moranis = James

Lberia, Gracie's pretty RAD!

That's the madness behind the Half-Blood names.

Things to note: Jean is dead currently and Magento is powerless.

Technically Chamber is also powerless but is using tech to give him powers.

Jubilee is also powerless and using tech to recreate her powers (both are members of New Warriors)

Doing the double name thing like the current game could be very cool.  Mafia members could be the Brotherhood and Purifiers.  Informants/Vigilantes could be named after X-Force.

FYI:

The X-Men themed mafia game won't apply to any specific comic book event.  It will be more general in nature.  So, feel free to pick ANY X-Men character that you'd like to be.  Doesn't matter if they're currently dead in the comic book world.  I don't want to limit your character options.

Speaking of character options this might help those of you who don't know what character to play as:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_X-Men_teams (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_X-Men_teams)

It looks like the current mafia game should wrap up by the end of today.  So sign ups for the next game will begin on Thursday, July 3rd.


whoa hey there's this totally interesting game still going on.

What can I say?  Us dead people are looking forward to being resurrected as X-Men.   :P



BTW, is it wrong that I laughed when spell check suggested that I replace the word "X-Men" with "semen"?

Just looking for a clarification Dim...
By any  'X-Men Character' do you mean actual mutants, or can it be any, hero/team-member(or villain for that matter) from any X-Team/Book?

I ask because I'm thinking of using a character from 'Exiles' which while may be considered by some to be an 'X-Book' has had some technically non-mutant members. 

(In fact some might argue whether the team/book qualifies as an 'X-Title' or not.) 

So How about it?

That's alright since my last post, I've had a change of heart, so to speak and have settled on a different mutant swordsman,  Kylun, from Excalibur.  I figure that His two swords, the Zz'rath, that  will cut through anything besides people who know that they are innocent, could be particularly useful in determining if someone's with the Mafia, Eh wot?  Plus who knows, if we're on opposite sides, our characters can have a duel...

The X-Men themed Mafia game will be using the Spirit of Vengence, Doctor, and Cleaners.

If nobody else has called it yet, I'll be Iceman.

And James, I'm gonna be away the 4th-6th, think that'll be an issue?

No.  That won't be an issue.

If any of you are not going to be here for the first couple days of sign ups but still want to play let me know.  I'll put you on the list when I open the mafia sign ups.  Also, I'll start out with a 25 person game.  If it fills up quickly I'll increase it to 30 players.  If more people still want to play I'll make it a 35 person game.  In other words everyone who wants to play the next mafia game should be able to.

I could watch the movie as a primer if I have to.

I'll be Talon/X-23 /Laura Kinney (damn, do all the X-men have so many  names?). She seems pretty cool. :)

Post by: whthat on June 28, 2008, 08:43:57 AM
X-23 is a pretty sweet character.  Reason she as three names is: Started as X-23, this being her Weapon X designation (she was the 23rd attempt to clone Wolverine).  The for awhile she wanted to separate from her past so she started going by the Talon/Laura Kinney names.  Currently she is going by X-23 and is a member of X-Force.  Being the "clone" of Wolverine she has all his powers: Super Sense, Healing Factor (Better then Wolverine's), and Claws (covered in adamantium by the Weapon X program) but only two for each hand.

Most of the member have at least two names being their secret/real names.  The exceptions being Emma Frost (White Queen when evil though) and Kitty Pryde.  Jubilee might be considered an exception (Real name Jubilation Lee).

Yep that was Lady Deathstrike and you're right it is quite a departure from the comics version, here's a side by side comparison:

There's another game I'd be sitting out of.

... Not that I want to cause tension, really.  I wanted to take a break from Mafia, and it's fortunate that it happened during a Mafia roleplaying game of sorts where not playing in-character cats suspicion on you, because I'm wholly unfamiliar with X-Men.  I'm also wholly unfamiliar with Buffy, so I'd be sittin gout of that round, as well.

But I like Purgatory, so it's cool.

I'm torn.  I like playing Mafia so I played anyway even though I'm unfamiliar with X-Men on the level of most others here.  And I've never watched a single episode of Buffy, but I'd probably play that one too just because I like the game.  My only concern is that the roleplaying doesn't become more important than the game.

Christ on a Bike I guess it might be relatively popular. What is a impediment is really a solid idea of a storyline outside of having Lorne host it (incidentally if I was a player I'd want to be Clem, or Mr Trick).

I'll have a think about it.

First, James...you've done a wonderful job with this present game of Mafia!  :clap:

Christ on a Bike I guess it might be relatively popular. What is a impediment is really a solid idea of a storyline outside of having Lorne host it (incidentally if I was a player I'd want to be Clem, or Mr Trick).

I'll have a think about it.

When I first entertained the thought of running a Mafia game, the original conception was going to be a Buffyverse-themed game. But then I remembered the hard time Angelus had in the Top 50 Villains List (he was my runner-up on my list) from Winter, and it left me wondering just how receptive this theme would really be. Shortly thereafter, the concept for the game I eventually hosted matured, and I never ventured back to Sunnydale/LA.

I guess what I'm trying to say is I think it's very neat to see excitement over a Buffyverse theme! Tripe, if by chance this does come into realization, I'd be glad to collaborate/contribute to the storyline if by chance you'd need any suggestions.  :)

Here's the thing I love Buffy but I fecking hate Buffy, all the other characters are great and all but she's mostly a whiny little tit (Team Kendra/Fatih All the Way!).

If she were a playable character, she might die ;)

Maybe I'm being a little harsh but she certainly isn't one of my favorites. :)

Oh, my, tripe. I am so sorry I lashed out at you!


anyway. Well anyway. I think it depends on who the mafia families are. I mean if we are including the angel series, then Wolfram and Hart have to be mafia, but what would the other mafia team be? cause you could make buffy the head of her own mafia family. or it could be evel angel, spike, and drusilla.....

Come on Tripe, please do it....please....

Actually thinking of Angel I would use the Senior Partners or Circle of the Black Thorn* for one family.

Plus I thought Acolytes of The First for the other family.

The Circle's lineup in 2004 is: Archduke Sebassis; Senator Helen Brucker; Cyvus Vail; Ed, Grand Potentate of the Fell Brethren; the leader of the Sahrvin Clan; Izzerial the Devil; and three other men whose names were never mentioned. Their latest recruit was Angel.

Incidentally is After the Fall worth picking up?

...and I was teary-eyed at the conclusion of The Gift, that was very well-earned. I haven't really cared for her character development since the swan dive but oh well...

Season 8, I've yet to be fully immersed into it but sure the Melaka Fray arc will place an end to that. I will say that it's better than Season 6 & 7 with the exception of Tabula Rasa, Selfless, and the immortal Once More With Feeling. :)

The Senior Partners & The First...there's Two Mafia families for you! I don't wanna mess with them.

Edit: You know Tripe, I received the first 4 issues of After the Fall for my birthday and have yet to get to them. I've been told it's very good but the artwork is lacking. I'll try and get to that this weekend, too.

First, James...you've done a wonderful job with this present game of Mafia!  :clap:

Absolutley, very well done  :clap:

*Lets out a sigh of relief*

I was hoping that people thought did a decent job running this game.  I'm very grateful for the compliments.


For those who are thinking about running a Mafia game for the first time:

Know that it's a ton of work.  I can't tell you how many pieces of paper I've used to help keep the voting straight from round to round.  It's a lot to keep track of.

If you plan on using special roles (Spirit of Vengeance, Cleaners, etc) you should come up with rare scenarios that might happen and make rules for them just in case they actually occur.  For example, what if the Doctor is protecting the person that the Spirit of Vengeance decides to hit?  Does the Spirit of Vengeance's hit count or not?  These are the types of things you need to think about when setting up a mafia game.

Also, when assigning roles be sure to use http://www.random.org/sequences/ (http://www.random.org/sequences/).  Don't go personally assigning the Mafia teams.  That's not fair (But if you read the rules you already know this  :P).

Anyway, the next game will be hosted by GregMcduck (Unless he's changed his mind) and this current game should wrap up in the next day or two.  I probably won't be able to play in the next game because I'll be in San Diego for a week starting Wednesday.  But I'm not a Buffy fan anyway.

/end rant.

And w/o the Scooby Gang, she would've died in Season 1...it's all moot. :P

It's what separated her from her predecessors. She wasn't alone.

I loved Angel but I've not picked up a comic of the show since that second go at it (which I didn't much like)

Apparently there's interesting stuff with Fred and I loves me some Fred. :)

Will do, my sister is up on AtF, and according to her (I didn't let her divulge too much information), Wesley's back and Illyria takes on Fred whenever the two interact. I guess it's pretty sweet. Then again, with Wesley being back into the fold, that's always a good thing.

Angel's the real deal. Of the seven completed seasons of Buffy and five of Angel...my all-time favorite yet to this date is the 2nd season of Angel. That ruled on so many levels.

It was a mostly fun episode, but if I remember correctly, this was also the first episode where Willow seemed more like a crack-addict regarding magic than someone just getting off on a power trip.  And that whole "magic is a drug" storyline REALLY sucked.  But then again, I was just not a fan of Season 6, aside from the musical.

Funny you should mention him.

Ok since I've not really thought about it in any great detail this is what I know I would do

It will be set during the Season Eight/After The Fall period

Familiarity with that period or the show itself will not be too much of an issue.

Neither would acting out of character be a sign of MAFIA status.

I'll leave the expalnation of those last two points as a surprise, assuming I do this.

For one thing I'd need to really read all of After the Fall.

KNOWING THAT FRY WAS THE ONLY PERSON WHO COULD DESTROY THEM, THE BRAINSPAWNS USED THEIR MASS INTELLECT TO COME UP WITH A WAY TO ALTER FRY’S DNA.  OVER A PERIOD OF TWO DAYS THEY MANAGED TO CONVERT FRY FROM A WALKING, TALKING HUMAN BEING, TO A FLYING BRAINSPAWN MEMBER. 

Goodbye, friends.  I never thought I'd die like this.  But I always really, really hoped.

I've had you pegged as Mafia since round two.  If I hadn't been so insistent with my teammates, you probably wouldn't have made it this far.   ;)

That was a ton of fun while it lasted. Bairman, it was a blast teaming up w/ you. I wasn't anticipating having the both of us being derailed by the Government sequentially.   :P

And I had the opportunity to role-play as a goblin from Troll 2. What more can I ask for?

Well, I best get started on writing Game 15...and Go Angels!!

Perhaps the GMs of future games could more strongly emphasize the importance of reading the rules, information, tips & tricks thread (http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php/topic,5073.0.html) as there seems to have been an outbreak of ignorance (not intended to be derogatory) in recent games.  A few instances have occurred behind the scenes among family members of Mafia teams I've been a part of as well.

Just a thought: when both informants vote the same guy, then are tagged by the mafia in back to back rounds, there might be something to that.

Oh, well.  At least I managed to get one guy taken out.

Also, it'd be cool if the GM could send a message out to EVERYONE playing that the game has started, rather than just the people who are special roles.  It's just nice to get a reminder that the game has started.

All right, once the corpses start piling up, I'm Olbermann-ing in this thread and playing Worst Persons in the World with the results of the round.  It's honestly the only reason I considered taking the reins for this game (although I said nothing), and I don't want to sign up for the next available game for this gimmick, especially since we already have a political approach to Mafia already.

I even have an angry faced Olbermann to correspond with the announcements.  Soexcited.

By the way, BUMP!

(Note from Dim: Forgive me, forum, for I have sinned.  I realize that Hannity may have assigned names to the pundits, and that I may be overstepping my bounds by doing this, especially if one of the pundits is Olbermann.  If that's the case, I apologize profusely for this stunt, and I promise that I have a way to work around everything if in-game Olbermann happens to get bumped off.

Also: Olbermann will be attacking Hannity a lot, which will involve picking apart the mechanics of the game and whatnot.  It just seems to make sense.  Hope you don't have a thin skin, Warrior, and I apologize in advance if I go too far.)

Good evening.  This is September 23, day 0 of my arrival on the forums.  After endless discussion with the MSNBC higher-ups, we have decided that my presence here was important.  "Fair and Balanced" Faux News has dispatched Sean Hannity to comment on the most recent developments of Decision 2008 on the RiffTrax Roundtable.  Deciding that this forum needs the other side of the story sometimes, I decided that it was imperative to scrape the bottom of the barrel for ratings and register an account in order to endlessly mock Hannity be able to bring you this crucial news as it happens.

With that, it's time to check in on the madness of the campaigns.  And what better way to do that than with our number two story?:

By the way, guys, if this is too much, please let me know.  I can edit the post down, whether you want me to eliminate some of the barbs or even the whole thing, and if you want me to knock it off, I will do so.  And I promise that Olbermann's posting will only extend to this thread.

And this is what happens when a non-confrontational person roleplays as one of the most confrontational news anchors in the business.

Good evening, this is September 27, 5 days since my arrival on the forums.

It has been a tumultuous 48 hours in the campaign.  The debate is just starting to pick up, and yet metaphoric shots in the dark are still common tactics in the election.  This has resulted in votes scattered all over the map... and, by way of tie-breaker votes, one more person that could have helped bring the Scientists and Communists to justice, has been eliminated from the campaign.

With that, let's move on to our number 2 segment,

Booo on the citizens.
 
That's the farthest I've ever made it as mafia though I think.  Every time I'm mafia, I get killed by a vigilante.  It's a very disturbing trend.

Good evening, this is October 1, 9 days since my arrival on the forums.

This election season is down to the very wire.  We have now entered the final debates, and we still have three enemies of the state to contend with; One Scientist and two Communists.  With luck, and a little bit of outside help, the candidates have been able to slowly identify the enemies, but at great costs to themselves, costs they no longer can afford.

Please, delegates.  Tread carefully.  Use your best judgment... or any judgment, for that matter.

For now, it's time for

World's Best Persons

And it is an entirely bittersweet experience.

Good evening, this is October 3, 11 days since my arrival on the forums.

Decision 2008 has been a veritable roller coaster of a campaign season.  Things have been heated up, cooled off, placed into tupperware containers and into the fridge, and then shoved into the microwave until they lost all taste and were too hot to eat, only to be shoved back into the back of the fridge to grow mold and be tossed away, along with the tupperware.  And all of this happened before the final debates.

Again, we have lost more delegates in this race.  Hillary Clinton (AmandaGal) and Thomas Whitmore (therul) were both forced to bow out recently.  By now, this campaign has lost many good men and women, and despite the troublesome, trying nature of the season, things have become outright bizarre.  So bizarre, in fact, that this past round hasn't even abided by the typical rules of the campaign game.  Everything has been flipped onto its back, and everybody has been left to scramble.

And with that in mind, it seems only fitting to announce the results of the most recent turn of events in Decision 2008 in a segment not yet introduced on the forums.  There are no Bests.  There are no Worsts.  There is only..

Oddball

We begin...

Pak, I have to say... you chose pretty much the best delegate, like, ever.  I was certainly rooting for Max to make it to the end.  After all, when I think of a President, I think of integrity.  Stability.  Flammability.

Also, Sam & Max Hit The Road is one of my most favorite games of all time.  Go figure.

Good evening, this is October 4, 12 days since my arrival on the forums.

The campaign season is finally winding down, and I am reminded, once again, why I love this country.  When it looked like democracy was on the ropes, good sense and justice won out.  We are now down to the last remaining enemy of democracy; the final, stubborn Scientist.  I am almost certain that the candidates will be able to pull off what a few rounds ago was thought to be impossible.

But caution must still be taken.  This is the round that could decide it all, and a tough decision awaits all sides.  Godspeed, delegates.  You're going to need all the help you can get.

In the meantime, I have a show to finish.  It's time for

Informants can't reveal themselves to their vigilantes until they have a confirmed Mafia hit to give them.

Why? I can't imagine it would change the game any. 

Informant - The job of the Informants is to find out who is in the Mafia and report it to the Vigilante and/or the Citizens. After the mob families have made their hits the Informants can PM me and ask me if one person is in the Mafia or not. If that person is in the Mafia, I will tell them, otherwise, I will tell them they're not. When the Informant finds out a player is in the Mafia, they PM the Vigilante with the name of the Mafia member. At any time, the Informant can announce what they know to the other players in the game. Note: When PMing the Vigilante the Informant is only allowed to say the name of the player in the Mafia and what family they are in. No talking about the game should be happening in these PMs. Also, please don't tell anyone, besides the Vigilante, who is in the Mafia through PMs because that ruins the game. The Informants can announce what they know in the game thread, but then the Mafia will know who the Informants are, so usually they're only good for one shot doing this.

Yes, but "in the rules" seems a little weak.  What would the difference be if the informant and the vigilante talked about who to ask about?
Title: Re: MAFIA purgatory: corpses only!
Post by: RoninFox on February 19, 2009, 06:38:16 PM
It would certainly be easier for the Vigilante if he/she could communicate with the Informant more just to know who not to vote for, and even who is definitely a citizen...and thus I think that's the point of the rule, keep it from being too easy.

  Yeah, I did sort of wonder about that. I couldn't tell if it was some cleverly thought out strategy on your part (though I couldn't figure out how), I was being a lousy informant some how and you were angry cause I couldn't get any guesses right and wasn't giving you any hits, if you forgot, or you just didn't know. Had you not said anything, I would have continued to assume the first one.  ;D

No strategy involved, though I think you already had enough votes by the time I got to you.  Fact is I hadn't reached a point where any of my votes were based on anything, and I had no idea who my informant was until both of them vanished from the game.   :P

Fairly certain I know who at least one of the Mafia people are, wish I had gotten the chance to use at least one of my hits.  Ah well.  Time will tell if I'm right.  And if I'm wrong, I'll just say I'm right since I can't actually voice my suspicions anyway so no one will ever know.  lol

TripeHoundRedux is gonna kill them all, one by one.  He's pure evil I tell you.  Pure evil.

In retrospect, that was pretty dumb of me to say "if I die, go after him".  I didn't think about how that would make it appealing to use me to frame him.  I still stand by my conviction.

Srsly, TripeHoundRedux is mafia, pulling everyone's strings.  When are they going to realize that two families are running around out there picking them off, and vote to kill obvious mafia?

That's the problem with this game; if you try to convince everybody that someone is mafia, the mafia spot you and take you out.

Not always.  It all depends on who's playing and if they're taking the game seriously.

I will say that this particular game would have benefited the citizens much more if Ax and TeamRAD would have stuck around and voted, instead of not voting for three rounds in a row.  They end up dead without having much input, giving the mafia members more and more pull with each round.

But who knows?  Perhaps the citizens will turn it around this round.  It's not too late.

Indeed.  I was about to mention this.  Although, it would be silly of someone to vote based on what's being said in here.

Anyway, please keep the current game discussion down in here.  My above post is about as close to current game discussion as I'd like to see in here (Since it's not specific to living players).  Thanks!

"Have you seen trendy new movie?"

"I think local sports team is really going to kick ass this year.  They might even win the big tournament.  I hope they beat rival sports team."

"Did you play online gaming last night?  I did.  I got so many frags."

I can't talk about it here because it might (god forbid) influence an opinion.  I can't post in the active thread.  May I discuss it in Riffchat, or are the baliffs patrolling there too?

Anyway, the point of mafia is that you can't stand out too much or you get taken out.  You also can't blend in too much or you get taken out by the citizens. It's a psychological game about non-verbal communication and being informed vs. uninformed.  It is the whole damn point of the game you're poo-pooing.

Try to treat this game like a movie with a twist ending that nobody has seen before.   Wait til it's done and then tell everybody when and why you figured out the ending.  If you're a person that talks during the movie and find people that don't mind you whispering in their ear, then communicate with a whisper (perhaps via PM) but don't shout theories for the whole theater to hear.

The key thing for me is ensuring the other two members get to the end and hopefully they'll do that. :)

He's banned from my game for this post:

So, these six remain

4. LBeria - Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy
7. Pak-Man - Mr. Mxyzptlk
12. Steve-O - Cherry Hostess Fruit Pie
20. TripeHoundRedux - Plastic Man
21. Compound - Matter Eater Lad
24. mrbasehart - Ambush Bug

And we know these were Mafia

9. SaucyRossy - Black Adam Killed by a Vigilante Round 3 Injustice League
13. Bairman - The Joker - Killed by citizens Round 1: Darkseid's Elite
22. Therul - Batman - Killed by Darkseid Round 3: Injustice League

Leaving a 50/50 spread since there are two of Darkseid's Elite and one member of The Injustice League still around.

However if the mafia revealed themselves now they'd know not to vote for one another, and without that us three remaining citizens would essentially be siting ducks.

Let's hope they don't do that eh?  :speechless:

yuo = skrewed

Pretty fun all round, aside from Thrifty obviously ;)

He's banned from my game for this post:

So, these six remain

4. LBeria - Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy
7. Pak-Man - Mr. Mxyzptlk
12. Steve-O - Cherry Hostess Fruit Pie
20. TripeHoundRedux - Plastic Man
21. Compound - Matter Eater Lad
24. mrbasehart - Ambush Bug

And we know these were Mafia

9. SaucyRossy - Black Adam Killed by a Vigilante Round 3 Injustice League
13. Bairman - The Joker - Killed by citizens Round 1: Darkseid's Elite
22. Therul - Batman - Killed by Darkseid Round 3: Injustice League

Leaving a 50/50 spread since there are two of Darkseid's Elite and one member of The Injustice League still around.

However if the mafia revealed themselves now they'd know not to vote for one another, and without that us three remaining citizens would essentially be siting ducks.

Let's hope they don't do that eh?  :speechless:

yuo = skrewed

Uncalled for.

Most of the piss poor attitude that denizens of the Internet display is uncalled for.  I just figured that, in a world where complaints are answered with mockery and derision, manners are obsolete and only bring you down.

Before you do something rash, I should warn you that basehart had his dick in me earlier.

Thank you, sir! :)

It is sadly impossible for a pie to bow, but if I could, I would take one.

Was it for more than 5 seconds?  That's what that rule is, right?

I wore protection!  Though oven-mitts might not be totally adequate for the job.

It's not even gay! I mean, she was a hostess cherry pie.

Wow. I waited 6 months for that? :^) And I had so many condiment puns left in me. Relish puns and catch up puns and using mustard instead of must. Ah well. It's good to have the game back.

I know.  It truly breaks my heart.  The puns turned out to be my downfall - the forum just couldn't take a yolk.

Yeah....well.....I know Mistah J will have to come get me out.  The way Ra's A outed me with the mistake in counting won't be forgotten.  And just as I'd signed-in to make my hit.  Well...hopefully some will see the hints I left behind and rescue me!!

Oh great....I'm surrounded in here by foodies.....how's a gal supposed to keep her trim figure now??  ;D

Sorry to be so bold as to write my own obit (and update) but I was bored, and I had a medical appointment that would keep me away until noon at the latest , hopefully.  That, and IMHO, the demise I concocted was just too good to let go to waste.....

Wow, the vigilantes are sharp this game. 

I didn't have any particularly strong evidence you were mafia, but I knew I was going down and still had one hit left.  Use it or lose it, I figured.  Why not use it on the guy that started the bandwagon against me?

What you talkin' about?  It was already clear that I was doomed before I called that in.

Looks like I've joined the dead.....why does the Mafia always seem to know who the informants and vigilantes are?

Well, I guess the other informant/vigilante deaths in this game were caused by the angry mob.

I wanted to throw-out my last vigilante hit but was sick and forgot all about it until I saw my cartridge in the landfill.  Oh well....at least I did get one mafia member -- even though everyone was going to vote him out anyway.  Confuse your enemies....or....something like that.... ;D

I think it was worth while because it turned everyone on another mafia member.

True....but now I feel bad 'cause the person I was gonna hit this last time around (Scigirl) just outed herself as Mafia and I could have stopped it.....*sob*  Guess that's why there's thousands of me buried in the desert..... ;)
