Great game and great ending. Most ironically, right after Sour said
And then I started the Cave of Silent Echoes.
What started as a simple strategy to make one connection at a time turned out to be a massive network of contacting the right persons.
It was actually working quite beautifully and the team that was assembled was perhaps the best chance of town pulling a victory of any sort. I mean we had hardcore fans, two cops a doctor and mafia vets. However, the only down side is that every time I found a new member I could trust, the mafia killed someone I just established trust with. So our group never really had more than 3 people at a time :/
I just got a check on Neonsands and Neonsands had checked Ryuu but that meeting was premature as mafia killed @Neonsands; that very next phase XP
The real clincher was when we were going to do a protect-reveal strategy. I was hoping my low thread activity would provide enough smokescreen for me to stay out of the radar and I could do my flavor checks every night (but looking over your mafia logs I see I was under the gun pretty much the whole game so that was a bad assumption XD). After that I was going to pass the roles off to Ryuu and have him lead the charge while @Scarlet Enchantress; protected him. (and keep Octy silent to keep the limelight off her being a threat) What I didn't count on was Octy's protection failing on Ryuu due to his ability the first time we put this into play. And the multiple silencing definitely didn't help :S
So I give props to mafia for hitting hard where it counted. Whether you knew it or not, you definitely struck down the right targets at the right time. Had we got an inch in, I feel like this would have been a whole different game, but you guys seriously shined and I have to give credit for that.
I'm pleased my suspicions on Sour and @Axle Helios; were on the spot from early on though I don't think I could have predicted @Neon Borealis; as easily, even toward the end game. For your first mafia role I think you played it brilliantly (especially that silencing ;P)
Also your game played really smooth @America*; You definitely did homage to the characters and I think their roles were, in the end, pretty spot on. (though I still think Whitestorm's role would have gone better for another medicine cat, maybe like Mothwing since they're always gathering items and she'd fit in nicely with the other characters in this period)
Thanks to everyone on the team. We tried our best.
And I don't know what the true intent was behind the spoiler @Thunder Lord Z; though you have my major respect if you did it for what I think you were trying to aim for. Thanks for that.
I think this might intrest you @Ryuutakeshi;
Actually Vicky (the lead Erin Hunter) once gave Brambleclaw an interesting line in 'After Sunset.' In it he feared for his future, and the future of the clan that he may one day lead Thunderclan the way his father (Tigerstar) so tyrannically wanted to. He ominously said "I will destroy the Clan from the inside out." A lot of fans feel there was a missed opportunity since nothing really escalates out of this, though there's lots of places for fans to go now that. I say fans because I think Vicky has said there won't be any more arcs set in the modern day period so it's all up to pure interpretation now. This can be one of those times.
And I love the nod with the ending @America*; it's awesome you kept him in character even if the killing Squirrel thing was tragic, though it's probably something 'evil' Bramble would do. (SquirrelxBramble is my favorite ship :( )
Oh gosh, that sounds like such a Sith Lord set up for Warriors, going to the Dark Side of the Forest and all XD
OKAY TEXT WALL DONE.
Great game everyone.
