Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

Honestly Riki and Slendy. If you vote for dorian today you will be better off. Bu i assume if dorian flips villager, you will get a worse night sleep, so maybe not worth it lol

i hope ofc you vote dorian, but i dont think me wiriting with caps or likewise wil lchange anything

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

....and my powers of ESP tell me that Achro and/or Doc will switch his vote to me in the next few minutes. If that happens and I'm lynched, I'm sorry I wasn't more clear town. This game has been incredibly difficult for me. I still think road and bhuber are the most likely mafia. Banks could be, but don't tunnel him simply for being the driving force behind my lynch. I think Riki is less likely.

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

If feel as if banks were scrum with road, he probably would have find a reason to backdoor his way into a road vote and at least try and get some bus credit (even if he wouldnt have really gotten any at all)

(so theres that tid bit of information)

so either the other scum is bussing road if he's scum

or y'all are probably just about to lynch a town

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

Day Three



"....I woke, disoriented.

I struggled to remember what was going on. But I survived. Strangely I was not in control of my body, however... it would seem my spirit was trapped within another.

I became aware that my immortal spirit was occupying the body of another young woman, a healer. I couldn't remember her name, exactly. From what I did remember, she was very young but showed a profound understanding of white magic and had a natural ability for it. In time, she could become an immensely powerful healer, if only we had the time.

I could only watch, observing things through her eyes, unable to speak. The shadow creatures had nearly finished our second line, and more inspiration was needed. Somehow, someone needed to reinvigorate our struggling forces.

As soon as I had the thought, I noticed that two of the Celestials were fighting back to back, and managed to hold their own impressively well.

He was our mightiest champion, white knight and holy defender of the Eternal Heavens, with angelic wings and divine armor crafted from the purest fabric of imagination. He was protecting another, who was known to us all as Joy. She was an archer, whose arrows were made of dreams. They complemented each other quite well, a pairing made in heaven.

As they battled, he protected her, while she fired arrows of impossible brightness into the eyes of the beasts... together they carved their way into the sea of shadow warriors. Surrounded on all sides, somehow, they held their own. In this moment, it drew the attention of much of the horde away from us in the rear line.

The love they had for one another made the bond between them impossible to break, and as they fought, she began to sing to him, to inspire him...

As she sang, she began to glow with otherworldly power, just as Hope did. But somehow, it seemed even brighter than before... more cheerful, more passionate, and the magical effect was more powerful. Not only did she glow, but he did as well, and soon, most of our melee fighters began to feel it as well.

It was infectious, inspiring us all... suddenly everything seemed more joyful, more optimistic than before... we fought with renewed passion and strength, and we focused on staying alive, as best we could.

Joy's arrows rained down from the sky, each hitting their marks, and the Shadows began to vanish one by one... she continued to grow more and more powerful, firing her shots with increasing speed. Her counterpart began to cleave the shadow beasts apart with a single blow swing of his longsword which radiated with the same energy as hers.

For several moments, the advance of the enemy was slowed to a crawl, and they were being defeated in greater numbers and with greater speed than before.

If only our forces were not so vastly outnumbered, we still had not slain even a hundredth of the great horde that surrounded us on all sides. But joyously we fought, and bravely still.

From within the horde itself, emerged a powerful and massive Shadow, a terror even more horrifying than the last, a gargantuan, monolithic Wyrm.

The Wyrm of Shadow and Flame soared over the battlefield, heading straight for her.

She saw the beast as it approached, and began to fire her brilliant, piercing arrows directly at the creature. But this one was far too powerful to be felled by a single shot, and even her enhanced, otherworldly powerful bolts were deflected off the creature's burning shadowy scales.


"Dreams of war
Dreams of liars
D
reams of dragon's fire
And of things that will bite..."


It swooped downward, jaws open, screeching the most terrifying sound.
Fear shook the resolve of our entire forces, and penetrated the glow and the aura protecting our fighters. The shockwave of this monstrous sound reverberated across the great plain, and knocked our holy defender to the ground, as well as Joy. It streaked closer... and closer... and closer.... ready to ravenously devour and destroy all in sight.

Spoiler:




"Hush little baby, don't say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It's just the beasts under your bed
In your closet, in your head"



Begin Night Three

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

Night Three


"She continued to sing her joyful song, and it inspired us to fight on.

With the Shadows of Fear and Loathing vanquished, and our second line bolstered with Celestial magic, it seemed as though our fortunes were turning in our favor.

It was going so well, but then... the ground itself began to crumble beneath her feet. She and her counterpart looked up and they saw that the edge of the Storm had been creeping closer to their position, and now, they were too far out of position.

They were surrounded by creatures of Shadow on all sides, and they both lost their footing. They were pulled apart by the shifting grounds, and Joy tumbled down into a crevasse.

He tried to find her, but the swirling darkness obscured his vision.

The wind drowned her screams as well as his. The storm pulled her into the void, as well as all of the rock surrounding her. In a terrible moment, she was gone.

The Shadow creatures were nothing compared to that creeping darkness that still approached, and the nothingness to where we would all soon be condemned."

Spoiler:




"Even if it could be stopped, at this point.... too much of our world had been annihilated. There was little left that could possibly be preserved, and with each passing moment, more of us would be lost forever inside destruction itself."


Begin Day Four

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

So yeah not only is the Cop!Ratchet-read sketchy, throughout D3 TehBankertin conveniently 1) ignored the most incriminating evidence against road, which everyone else saw, and 2) went as much in circles wrt my case against him as possible.

I will read through dorian today, but based on his tone defending himself D3 I liked him as Town very much.

bhuber also ignored 1 and 2, and he definitely is the second most likely Mafia in my eyes, but he wasn't looking into me at all D3 so unless while rereading D3 I come across something incredibly sketch-y wrt that I don't mind this with him so much. While the road-stance was odd, the 'tiredness' and indecisiveness after the gruesome reread was green.

IMO we resolve the Bs today.

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

Also this, I DON'T think the Ratchet/Banks interactions are as convincing as some seem to make them out to be:

I notice that the only instances of Ratchet interacting with Banks were R asking about B's readslists (and the first instance of that happened as an echo to my question to Banks wrt to a read of his)

When compared to Riki, who had similar volume and thread presence, there's actually a notable difference. Even while only looking for Ratchet/Banks -interactions from R's filter, I could see Ratchet CONSTANTLY questioning Riki/interacting with him.

For comparison's sake, here's what Ratchet had to say about Riki and Banks after most of the interacting had been done: When taking into account the sheer VOLUME of interactions, and I'd predict the quality as well, I find Banks may have gotten away too 'easily' from Ratchet's inquiries.

With Banks the Ratchet-interaction's always either initiated by Banks or is a continuation of the fairly empty reads-elaboration questioning. (Or answering "who will be online end of Phase?" -type of questions. Or echoing a suspicion by Banks as here https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...&postcount=626)

So upon closer gleaning the Ratchet/Banks-interactions don't seem as convincing as a superficial go-through would, admittedly, imply.

Thoughts, anyone (Achro in particular)?
Compare them with Riki/Ratchet and you'll see my point. Ratchet/Banks only seems good because Banks was prodding Ratchet into interactions with him.

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

I spent hours last night after the lynch was posted skimming/rereading day 1. It will probably take me a similar few hours to do the same for days 2 and 3 this morning. I will post my thoughts on Banks vs. bhuber when I'm done.

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

I woke up just to say that I am sorry I failed you, Road, I tried my damn hardest to keep you alive!

You were a good friend.

Sorry, town, for the grief I have caused.

Just going to sulk away now and return to sleep.

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

Oh no, embed fail.



I was probably right about banks (and thus why I was high on road's case on banks), but I'm too tired to care right now.

Back to bed.

Love you all!
