I think this is all I'm confident of leaving without rereading like you have.

Plus it's 3am and I'm legit tired.

My message is simply: read the posts by me and Banks during the last hours, the Day Phase wasn't long anyway. Everything relevant that hasn't been brought up yet should be there.

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

End of Day Five



"Numb... so numb to the great losses we've suffered. I struggle to remember what we're fighting for.

I remembered all our great stories... the ones I still could remember. And I struggled to find their meaning.

As we stood here on the precipice of eternal death and ultimate meaninglessness, I searched my mind for reason, for some sense of purpose, for.... the meaning of life, in fact.

As my memories faded in and out of my thoughts, the one thread holding it all together was love. Love took many different forms. The hope for the future was a kind of love, an optimistic love, a love of dreams and things to come. A love of the happy times in life. Joy was the ultimate expression of love, the ability to love another as well as yourself, the feeling of happiness and love even on your own. Then there was romantic love, of the requited and unrequited kind, there was passion. Then there was the love that endures even after a great loss... and there was the love of self, which is also important.

But as I reflected back on our great story, at the end of all things, I realized that our great loves were all lost, and soon, we would not even be able to remember them. Everything that gave life meaning was being slowly extinguished. I wanted to feel something.... but I was numb. Even sadness would have been a feeling, that gave me some meaning. Any meaning. Even anger would have given me strength. But I felt nothing. All passion was being drained into the void, and I was slipping into unconsciousness, a great and heavy, restless sleep. A sleep from which I would never wake.

But not everyone was ready to give up or give in. She was not feeling numb at all, she was feeling great and powerful sadness and loss.

I remembered part of her story, she was once the most powerful and feared black mage in all of legend. Her mastery of all manner of elemental magic, and even of the magic of the eternals, was unparalleled. She once ruled an entire continent, and began an era of our history where her empire stretched from one side of the known world to the other. She was responsible for much suffering, loss, and sorrow... and yet, also responsible for a great era of peace which followed. We brought her here because we knew her talents would be of use, and she would want to protect the legacy of her empire.

What we did not know is that she, too, had someone she called her beloved... and that he had been lost in the war she herself caused. She carried with her this great loss. It was the memory of him and all she created, all she carried with her, and everything we were all about to lose... that is what made her feel moved.

Somehow, even sadness could inspire us. It made us feel those memories of the fallen, even though they had faded from view. Lost, they would not be forgotten. Sadness represented a desire for our lost loves, and somehow, within it, a tragic hope that it would all return to normal.

She glowed with otherworldly power, and her sadness touched us all. We all grieved with her, as her song entered our hearts. Although we felt our heavy losses, deep within that unimaginable sadness was our lost hopes, our lost joys, and our lost loves. Inside of sorrow, we felt pain once more, and a motivation to hang on and make everything right. We needed to, because sadness made us care. It broke through our numbness and made us cry.

Those tears may have been our last hope.

She cast spells of sadness, and loss, and sorrow... and the shadow creatures who could not feel, suddenly felt something. And in feeling something, they were no longer nothing.

Half of the shadow army vanished in an instant, and all that remained were their tears.

But she had fallen as well, for she had drowned in her own sorrows.

There were so few of us left... and... so little left worth fighting for. Only one of the Celestials left standing was even capable of fighting the shadow.

This battle was surely lost... what could save us now?"


Spoiler:



"Pushed to the very edge, defeated in every possible way... suddenly... I began to feel.... something I almost never felt...

I felt....

...anger
."

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

Night Five



"Lost... everything important to me was lost. But those hated beasts, those Shadows, they were not invulnerable. Their numbers had been reduced, and still they fought. They needed to be granted the merciful end they truly deserved.

My mind went blank... my hands were shaking... my hands felt cold, and they began to tingle. The fires of fury grew within me, and they filled the vast emptiness within my heart, until it was glowing.... shining...

Rage.... unimaginable, overpowering rage.

I was never a very angry person... I tried to rely on calmness, reason, and logic, but in this moment.... all I wanted.... was blood.

But the rage was within us all, and I realized the source was our Celestial swordmage. The greatest fighting sorcerer in all of history, master of both the blade and of magic. Single-handedly, this dark warrior wielded the might of nations. He was renowned by many as a villain and a menace, shunned by his own people, banished and exiled, unwelcome anywhere he wandered.

We found him after he defeated the vanguard of his native empire, as it pursued him. We did not know his crime, we just knew his power. And somehow, we felt like he would be of use to us, here, on the precipice of all the ages.

What good lie within this man, we did not know. We feared him, in fact. Anger is a powerful emotion, often misused. But sometimes... it is your only friend.

And the rage came from within Him. And he screamed with all the pain and agony and hatred in his heart, and it was clear that he hated our suffering, our losses, and the darkness that consumed us all.

His anger was our only source of passion left. His hatred was of the righteous and purest kind. I never thought of hate as something that could be.... good.

And here, in this moment, I shared in that hatred and anger. This shadow, these beasts, the nothingness that consumed everything we held dear...

I hated it. I hated it like nothing else I've ever hated before.

And in my anger, my fury, I too lashed out at the beasts. But I was nothing compared to the mighty Swordmage, who cut them down in his righteous fury. He charged into the center of the swarm, and with each fallen shadow, each beast, each soldier cut down in his might, he grew only more angry, only more hateful. Our healer protected him with white magic for as long as she could.

This shadow needed to die. The shadow needed to be cast out. The shadow itself needed to be destroyed.

And in our anger.... in our fury.... the shadows began to fade.... and die.....

The shadow army was almost vanquished...

But there was still more.

And He fell.

He died fighting for us all. And there was no more hate.

Spoiler:



"With his death, I felt nothing....
I was truly dead inside.

He was the strongest of us.... and misunderstood.
Now, all that was left was the emptiness."

This is lynch or lose- any vote you make is your final vote. You are not allowed to unvote. When someone reaches two votes, the game is over. Do not post any further after that.

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

Thanks for leaving me with this ****, Banks. Highly appreciated.

Ok. First off, do either of you want me to address Banks' points against me? I'd prefer to just spend these next three days figuring out you two, but if I have to defend myself, I will.

Second, I will only be around on my phone at end of day again, and if this Sunday is any near as busy as the last one, even that's unlikely. As such, I'm going to vote by 3pm EST Sunday. Any and all questions to me should be asked before that, or I probably won't be able to get back to you.

Bhuber, please talk me through your Road read Day 3.

Riki, please tell me your thought process behind joining the Road wagon Day 2.

We've got less than 66 hours to solve this game. Let's go.

there were like two main reasons

i wasn't done talking to him and i usually don't vote someone while i'm in the middle of talking to them

msu had also just voted road after talking about ratchet for like the entire day, i kind of thought msu/road could be mafia together so i thought i would vote road with him and see what he did in response to that

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

so this is a disclaimer of sorts:

i don't really have any idea who the last mafia is atm

i went into f7 thinking somewhat strongly that it was bhuber

i started changing my mind when no one else thought it was bhuber

like tbh at f5 i still kind of still thought it was bhuber but i voted banks and didn't say anything for the entire phase because i wanted to give him incentive to concede early if he was mafia (it probably wouldn't have worked even if he was mafia but lol) and also because if bhuber isn't mafia then an f3 of me/banks/fonti is an actual nightmare

meh

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

I'm having trouble quoting the Banks post to respond, so let's try this.

First off, I did make several points against Cue:

The DosEspana thing is the only bit of logic you've actually given, and instead of actually following up on it, you stated trying to flatter Achro. I'm not even sure if your road vote is real or a joke. Even when you expressed suspicion of me and I gave you a chance you a chance to substantiate it, you did nothing.

I find that good players will drop hints as the best ways to correctly scumread them. You've done so here:
You believe that avoiding attention the main fights and not taking the blame for town lynches is a good way to play mafia. This is also exactly what you're doing.

Sorry Cue. I like you, but I'm going to lynch you.

Bhuber: Have you considered explain /why/ you think MSU is a "wolf."

Like, it's ridiculous that a lot of people null read him and agreed with my pressure and yet here I am, voting alone.

They were wrong, sure, but they felt right at the time.

I wasn't fond of the Slendy lynch, as well, because Cue was on it just after calling Slendy a bad lynch, so when Slendy voted someone with no votes instead of moving to save himself and lynching Cue, it pissed me off.

For the Smartbomb stuff, I thought he was town since the beginning of the Day, and saw where he was coming from when he said Ratchet was being increasingly scummy. His bit about too many people being on his townside also spoke to me, because I was very concerned with the townreads I had and whether I could really trust them when people are playing at this level.

I also thought Ratchet was always dying by the end there, with the votes at 5-4. I didn't see the Cue thing coming, and I admit that I should have switched my vote to Ratchet to ensure that the lynch went through.

I would have never played it that way as scum. Ratchet dying with 5 townies voting and me and my teammate on other wagons is a nightmare scenario. I'd always either try to save Ratchet (and go hard enough that no one would believe we were teammates) or hard bus him.

There's some other minor stuff Banks misinterpreted (I was calling Slendy's /posts/ good, I also asked Smartbomb and basically everyone in addition to Ratchet to vote cue with me, the question to Ratchet was picking apart something specific he'd said, town can be wrong and I'm not going to scumread them for being wrong once in my eyes(duh), etc.).

Uh, other stuff? When I came out against Banks Day 2, I did it in a way that is pretty scum on the sites I play, but I felt it was necessary to put him on his backfoot. Banks is an incredibly scary wolf and I knew I had to do something unexpected to get a useful reaction.

The post he quoted as me saying why cue died is the one where he townread me for no reason, and I thought it could have been seen as a peek, so that makes no sense.

I don't get why talking to MSU when he was on the road wagon with me Day 2 is scummy. I mean, I was trying to figure him out. If I were mafia by that point, I probably would have known he was the cop and would have backed off, I think?

He also criticized my wagon analysis, even though, again, it was correct, so Banks can suck it.

I can't address Slendy's point one, because I have no idea what Road was doing. I'll add that I led the Road wagon Day 2 in my defense, just after the pressure on Ratchet died down, so that'd be really weird to do as mafia.

2 isn't really true. I only aggressively tunneled for Day 1 on Cue. Then, I realized that I was pretty far off and toned it down a lot, to see if I could play a bit better. I only really picked it up again because tunneling hard on Banks is the only way to ever lynch him in my experience.

As for 3, I don't give cases to my teammates. That's stupid.

I can't address 4, except that I was pretty townread day 1 for no reason (again), so Ratchet may have just not wanted to make any waves there.

As for 5, I wasn't there. I've been at work every eod expect the first one, and I've never been able to keep up on my phone, even when people were hardly posting yesterDay. I couldn't have made a case.

I think that covers everything. The biggest point in my favor, imo, is that I contributed (directly or indirectly) to both scum lynches without going for a lot of credit on it. When the towncircle was made, I still fought it a bit, because I was paranoid, even though that towncircle would have suited scum!me perfectly. If I'm scum, I've played a ****ty game.
