@HumanDawn; since the paired people get a shared QT, it would be pretty unbalanced if the mafia goons have their own QT as well if they were paired with other people.
The rules state that mafia members are allowed to talk to each other outside of the thread.
I am not sure as Dark Bluebery said it could be unbalanced BUT also if we know for sure that the 2 Mafias are a pair that would mean that if we find the one we have found both which would make the game unbalanced against Mafia.
That is why I went ahead and I asked Paperhorse kindly and she told me that Mafia actually can pair with Townies.
So I trust nobody...
HumanDawn made a good point while we were talking and I forgot to mention it. It goes like this.
We have 5 Vanillas, 1 Revealed Townie and 1 Treestump and we are against 2 Mafias. That means that the game is 7v2. (Yes I am a mathematical genius I know. ^^) But the Treestump has no vote so on voting it is 6v2.
Now, that means that if we miss-lynch 2 times. And Mafia scores 2 successful kills (Unless Town has a doctor and he successfully protects someone.) the game will be 2 Townies, the Treestump and 2 Mafias. Which on voting is 2v2. That would mean we have lost the game pretty much.
@Midorikawa; it's OK no hard feelings. :P
For private communications the rules don't say that the mafia members have to pair up with each other so its safe to assume that two townies have a mafia mason partner and the mafia have their own QT. Also on another note Shinobu is allowed to communicate with anyone privately and vice versa the players with him as he is the tree stump.
m0cking was forgetting about the treestump, and if you overlook that role, calling Shinobu out for refusing to partner with DB was smart. If he was deflecting, i'd expect him to be more careful with the flawed accusations. For day 1, when no one has any real reason to suspect mafia, you are the one person I have a feeling about. As far as Mijz goes, guilt by association I guess.So you're thinking I'm mafia because I voted m0cking for very little reason when he did the same exact thing with Shinobu and Mijz because he has yet to post when the phase started just last night and because I chose him as my partner.
Everyone votes and gives a reason. In doing so you could say everyone is making someone look guilty. I'm pretty sure everyone has their own mind. I'm hardly the voice of influence :I@CrackFox; A feeling? Really? And by association? You're really trying to make the two of us look guilty here.
You chose Mij for a reason, we all chose someone for a reason. Whether it's because you're friends or because he's a good player, or because he's also mafia. I'm keeping my vote and happy for you to keep yours if you feel like it's justified.
Wild thought here! But I can't get it off my mind, so I am going to say it anyway...
What if Mafias winning conditions include something to do with the Treestump. I mean from what I understand the Treestump is the patient. And the 2 Mafias are the ailments which I think is sickness or something like that. So what if the real aim of the Mafias are to take care of the Treestump... somehow.
I mean I know the Treestump is practically a dead player with the ability to post, but I can't stop thinking of the possibility.
Gah, we started already? I thought we'd get a notification or tagged once the day started. Anyway, I honestly don't think Midorikawa's guilty. Since when does being an aggressive player=mafia? I don't really like the guilt by association thing either.
