Re: Smalltown Werewolf PYP - D1: A is for Anarchy

Gah. I thought Iggy had a zero-weighted vote, but he's just voteless, so he can't make himself killable yet.

UNVOTE

I still say he shouldn't be able to underline vote until he makes himself killable, probably tomorrow after he transfers his no-vote.

Re: Smalltown Werewolf PYP - D1: A is for Anarchy

I agree with this on principle, but this is regardless of Suzaku's role. This is because everyone being afraid of being killable by him are thinking about self-preservation. As town, I don't need to preserve myself, because if Suzaku kills me I can still win with town. Becoming unkillable is theref...

Smalltown Oh so much for that. The alien invasion is at the END of day 6, which is of course why I have the caveat in my role. Duh. I'm having trouble keeping track of all this. In other news, the werewolves are pretty much on board with hunting the aliens first, so we should be relatively coope...

Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

Smalltown I've been trying to come up with some cool way to use my power, rather than just ducking a lynch. It's a shame I'm not an alien. If I were an alien and survived to D5 without using my power, I could win the game early by basically becoming invulnerable for a day and night. As i...

Re: Smalltown Werewolf PYP - D1: A is for Anarchy

It occurs to me that Darryl/Dr Ug could just turn himself into a cop by targeting both Luna AND Xela each night, with one slot left for a solid result. But if he uses just one baseline, we get two results per night on one faction. Given that the three of them (Darryl, Luna, Xela) might not last long...
