    Game is GO!

    Pregame is for the next 24 hours and 40 minutes, then we move into a 48 hour day 1 proper.

    During preday, the Witch private chat is enabled and lynch voting is not allowed (also Loose Cannon cannot activate). You may post as you will in this main game thread.

    Once day 1 starts (and on all future day phases) the Witch chat will be closed and you will be able to cast lynch votes as you wish.

    Proper game OP post coming soon.

    Remember you can use your extension token to make day longer if you so desire.

    Once day 1 starts, with 15 players alive, it takes 8 votes to reach majority and a day-ending supermajority is 10 votes.

    Fake Vote Rubicon

    So, I've got this crazy idea called "Let's be careful not to meet supermajority."

    Unfortunately, I don't have a witty RVS vote. However, after reading Micro #1, I have to:

    10 votes is actually fairly high, I think. It's not that far from 8 though, so can't hurt to be careful. I'd say don't commit to a lynch (i.e. not even majority) until it's late enough in the day.

    Seems like the best idea.

    Also, let's please make sure to keep Lucky from being able accidentally Hammer people. Because no matter how funny or how much of a confidence boos in my own mafia abilities it was, it was still kind of sad and painful to see.

    Lol, poor Lucky. Hopefully that won't be a problem this time.

    I disagree. Votes should be put down early and often, because it makes it easier to scumhunt if we have a good voting record to go by. It's easy for scum to back away from a proven mislynch if they haven't put a vote down; they can always claim they didn't think the person was scummy enough to deserve a vote.

    So, be wary of supermajorities, but don't be afraid to put a vote down if you want to pressure someone. If in doubt, count up the votes on a person before putting it down.

    Just ask Kai to post a votecount if you're unsure and drown him in PMs (...) if he doesn't comply in the next 30 seconds.

    Good game, everyone. Fair warning: my level of aggressivness should get progressively better heading towards and after January.

    Votes should happen, yes, but not at that level. 8 votes is high, even 6 or so is enough for significant pressure. If the response to that pressure is lacking, push forward for a lynch towards the end of day. There's a point beyond which additional votes on a person don't serve much purpose with regards to pressure.

    Also, I'm a little worried that Stojil's already 'good game'd us all. <_<

    Is "have a good game" less worrisome?

    I agree with Moridin; putting more than 8 votes on a player in the name of pressure is just asking for somebody to hammer. At that point, if the player isn't sufficiently pressured it's probably time to find a new tactic. With that said, obviously we shouldn't be too sparing with votes. That's been one of my many flaws in the past, I think (not voting enough for pressure purposes).

    On a personal note, my activity will take a hit over this weekend (Friday and Saturday). I'm going to be on the road for most of that time, so my apologies in advance. I'll try to post at least a couple times a day, but that's about all I can say. After that, I should be good to go.

    Good luck to all of us!

    Hmmm.

    Hey Stojil, how do you know you'll be alive heading into January?

    Hey, Dermon's name is almost Demon. This means he is evil and definitely a witch.

    But seriously, you're new here dermon? Do you have any previous witchhunt/general mafia experience?

    I don't. But you're right. I could have been more clear.

    Fair warning: my level of aggressivness should get progressively better heading towards and after January, but that's if and only if I:

    -don't die in this game.
    -don't die in real life.
    -am not hospitalized for something serious in real life.
    -don't have to fight off hordes of zombies suddenly invading my home in real life.
    -don't lose my internet connection a lot/entirely.
    -can't be fucked to play.
    -don't come to despise you all so throughly that I can't stand playing with you.

    I vote that we all work together to make that last scenario of Stojil's come true.

    If we're doing that we might as well go all the way and send the zombies at him.
