Day 8 Spam: SPAM FOR THE MEMORIES

Not the kind with cardstock and pawns. Mostly play by post Mafia so far.

Day 8 Spam: SPAM FOR THE MEMORIES

Postby jalapeno_dude » Wed May 20, 2015 1:35 pm

An old man wanders alone in a crumbling temple. He has won, but he feels hollow (like the vacant eyes of the carvings and statues and paintings, replaced by crudely fashioned coins, pale reflections of the pure ideal they are meant to honor).

What does it mean to be the High Priest of a religion that no longer has any followers?

It was so hard to read this after I died and not tell you who the demons were.

YOU HAVE BEEN POSSESSED BY A DEMON (and are now playing that demon instead of your original character, now the demon's host).

Your win condition has changed. You now only win if at the end of the game whoever's possessed is the last person standing. You may then assume that the host skips town to happily unleash the demon in a larger metropolis.

Your current host (Akar) has an expiration date: being possessed by you is no picnic. On night 8 (if it gets that far), target someone else to move into them. You will die tragically if you fail to move hosts for any reason, such as trying to do so to someone who has died. Alas, you (the player) will have to bow out of the game when you change hosts even if it goes off without a hitch; but you can take notes to pass on to future players of THE DEMON, who will retain all of the active host's powers.


I also got access to private chat with MTC and modrony who kept themselves unspoiled (not PDV, who didn't), and they left me lots of notes and stuff.

and I have no idea. I think your math was pretty much right that regardless of win con we had to play the same BUT one thing that could have changed it was if you did trust someone not to be the demon, and you trusted them enough, it would have made sense to co-operate with them to avoid a coinflip, if the amount you trusted them (tamien in this case) gave a bigger chance of winning that way.

Another thing to notice was: modrony chose the target and we had to survive until the end. choosing michael would have been a loss for modrony, therefore michael couldn't have been the demon. i think that completely undoes the "it makes sense to vote for michael" strategy, despite the math.

The previous host, modrony, has left you this note:

@Shoal from modrony: Here is my advice:
Just continue acting like you normally would. Self-knowledge is our greatest weapon.

Watch out for too much flattery. Our conversation about ‘townleaders’ in the beginning of the previous day was the point I seriously started suspecting you. Don’t go overboard on the other direction either thou. Being sympathetic is an asset.

There is a doc MTC has been keeping for us, but I think spending time on reading or altering that is counterproductive at this point. You’ll get a link from him if you want but I advise against it.
I don’t think there is much there you don’t already know and having too much insight into our motivations could out you.

Will be available for consult later, but it will be very sporadic until wednesday. [snip] . Do chat with MTC if you like, it really helps me keep my thoughts semi-organized. My skype handle is [snip]. Urgent things should go through PM. I’ll try to check that daily at least. Keep logs of all communication since Alicorn wants them.

Good luck.

MTC and modrony, the previous hosts who've avoided learning unauthorized game information, are allowed to talk to you as long as they avoid acquiring spoilers from any player other than you; they may continue to communicate with and advise you (make sure you CC us gods), but if opsec is breached they have to stop and you will only have their previous notes to go on.


This was in the PM too (snipped a couple things that seemed personal)

Good game, everyone. That was a fun one. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy playing as scum. Although I clearly need to learn to lurk less, because none of my incidents of suspicious lurking throughout the game were actually tactical ploys; they were all just me defaulting to not saying anything if I didn't feel like I had anything useful to say.
