The Calacus turns to face you. A big mistake on its part as the chain has wrapped around it’s right set of legs. It attempts to lift it’s claw, by doing so it pulls the weaker legs on it’s right side towards the right back leg causing it to fall. Due to it’s legs being together it cannot stand back up. The Calacus is weak and struggling, the blade in it’s mouth must have really taken it’s tole by now. It’s sheiks are getting softer and less frequent. The Calacus shuts its eyes.

You follow Fredra into the slums. These slums are surrounded by an iron fence. The living conditions are poor and the people seem miserable. This area seems like a very undesirable place to be, it must feel like being an animal in a pen. Many people are watching you pass.
“The locals are wary of outsiders in this area, most of them are members though so you’re safe” Fredra says. Eventually you arrive at a shoemaker’s shop. Fredra opens the door and walks in without hesitation.
“I’m here for the special order of new stock” Fredra says to the the man behind the counter. He wears strange attire for a shoe maker, a full black robe with a hood and even weirder is that he is wearing it up indoors. He stands up.
“Of course, right this way” he says softly. Leading the way to a trapdoor in the storage room. Fredra descends down the ladder.
“Welcome to the club” the man says gesturing at the trapdoor.

But both those mafias have 20 and 19 roles respectively, Meaning another 10 or 11 must come from somewhere else, it could be entirely possible that your role could be in the other half.

From looking at it I feels the second mafia is more likely than the first, if this is the case we need to find an 11 player mafia with 1-shot NK immunity/mirror and the pattern will work until another player states that their role doesn’t exist in either.

Bankzy, this isn’t playing the game, this is spam.

I have no objection to anyone posting on the thread during break week if they want to discuss the game and ask any questions they may have. Your posts are so thoughtless you haven’t even checked the times in the OP. Your above two posts have been flagged.

Iter turns around and looks at you both, still walking down the stairs.
“Up to the entrance hall there are generally no traps, except in war temples but being as I haven’t seen the crest it’s safe to assume a worship or vault temple. At the bottom of these stairs we will reach the entrance hall, normally they have a story of significance engraved into the back wall in the entrance hall. These stories give an idea of either what the temple is about, what the temple holds or death threats to invaders dependant on the temple. Although short stories translating them is long and difficult, since you mentioned being pressed for time I will just look for buzz words in the text” Iter says. The stairs end and Iter walks into the entrance hall, you trust Iter’s knowledge of these places and follow him through. He stops in front of a wall of strange symbols.
“Let’s see… Magross… Year 127, There’s mention of a Leviathan… it get’s slain… shards… fire” Iter thinks aloud for a few minutes before turning around to talk.
“From the looks of it this is a Vault Temple and it looks like the treasure so to speak are some kind of shards that were guarded by a monster at Mount Magross before it’s death. So yes there could be vault traps, vault traps rely on greed to function in a very clever way. Basically don’t loot anything apart from the shards, all the other stuff we see in other rooms may have some value due to them being old and of temple origin but they were worthless to the original dwellers and are used to lead people off the main path and into traps” Iter says.
“Now the main path should be the one of most resistance, for example locks, puzzles and other things like that, I’ll lead the way down the second set of stairs” Iter says before heading to the offset set of stairs down on the back wall.

Also The first line in this thread is:

MYSTERY REPLAY MAFIA is a mafia that is in a state of flux until the sign-ups end – the setup of the game could be anything previously hosted on FGF, depending on the amount of players.

So this means Bluji had a plan for what Mafia’s he was going to use for any amount of players from 14 to 34.
This means I doubt he had to scale anything to balance as he already found reasonable groups for each possible outcome and the only balancing would be changing how many times a role can use it’s ability ect. ect.

1. They’re too recent for Bluji’s taste

What are Bluji’s tastes, Bluji is an individual and many different mafias can appeal or not appeal to him for many different reason. I wouldn’t think Bluji would be like “if it’s not old it sucks”. Not only that but he was linking a bunch of old mafias, perhaps a red herring to bait us away from newer ones.

People who are almost certainly town:
qwertyuiopazs
Kuzco12
LouWeed

To quote the last post you made in this thread before that:

Adv0, why are you listing Lou as confirmed town? Just because he role claimed doesn’t mean he’s telling the truth (though I believe he is)

As well as a quote from an earlier post about your reasons for including you and Kuzco:

Kuzco/CM/me- likely town, possibly indie given that they wanted to lynch spike for a while.

My role’s not in either

As I said I didn’t give role details at the end of my game only modifier details, therefore Bluji wouldn’t know the roles. Therefore using those roles would give a certain amount of freedom regarding what the roles are so it is possible Bluji would of had to make up his own ideas of what Guardians, Priests, Banishers ect. would do in this game which is a good prime for balancing when merging two games as you can change some roles up because they were never set in stone.

Louweed claiming “vengeful villager”

Actually now I’ve noticed your role title perhaps you are the “Fierce Ferric” as the alliteration works, sound similar in the sense that the role imply something happens when attacked.

Assuming WARoS, I would like to talk about the indie in this case, I don’t think all of them are bad, like if these “indie” roles are “indie” then perhaps they win with town but aren’t recognised by town as town. Like what if this mafia was "Robed figures appeared at the tenacious temple, within the big group you would have, the 5 person mafia, the 15 conventional town members, 8 indie members aiming to eliminate the last 2 indie members who are basically A SK with other effects. And a town role with it’s conditions flipped to win with mafia.

Also a quote from Bluji in the signing phase:

it’s safer to have a good supply of reserve players. :)

I understand this is a large game so a supply of reserves is quite important. So far we had 5 reserves subbed into the game. It is possible that’s because Bluji anticipated for people to drop out or that it’s part of a role to summon players from the reserve list and wanted to keep a stock of reserves in case the role wanted to summon a reserve.

-gravey claimed widow because he was making shit up but he has no imagination to do so
-super swampfoot is nothing like my role. Also, it’s a mafia role, so, like, what are you trying to say exactly?
-lots of mafias have doctors

-Gravey’s Claim is of an opinionated matter as if “indie” in this context means WAWH roles then since all roles are indeed not normal mafia roles and are Indie mafia roles then Widow has no Normal Name. This is why names don’t flip. Because if all roles were striped of there titles then the roles flipping would be no give away at all since they are generic roles. And RoS had the whole RoS theme which are special roles.

-I’m not suggesting you are mafia at all, you roleclaim sounds like the role but since there is no confirm on the setup due to limited data it could be a different role. But I feel a strong connection here.

-Yes, doctor is a normal role to be in mafia as the ability to protect people is a vital one so finding a doctor doesn’t mean anything. I was pointing out the fact that the doctor role exists in one of the games I feel this set-up is made of.

the numbers (10+20=30) work out, but that’s about it

That and that there are 2 killing roles, mafia factions won’t merge due to The Wave of Destruction being a lone entity, why roles are “Indie” and not “Third-Party”.

I have it.

Gravey claimed Widow, bit odd, that comes from why are we here. Although a weak link.

my townie with a one-shot immunity to NK that kills the would-be killer

Sounds like a bit of a role from a role from RoS Memorial mafia “Super Swampfoot” only difference is Super Swampfoot could do it twice.

gonkey’s doctor

RoS mafia has a doctor and a doctor with a chance to role block or night kill “Functioning/Malfunctioning Skylark”

b1. Crystalmasks serial killer

Sounds like “Angry Seer” as the Seer part I never made public Seer has no meaning.

Now we get 2 kills per night. One would be the collection of mimics and the other would be The Wave of Destruction in the above case. Both RoS and WAWH had some roles that could kill upon attack such as “Fierce Ferric” perhaps Pulsaris role and hence Back900 went down with them.

This game started on 30, RoS on 20 and WAWH on 10
10+20=30
All indie roles are WAWH roles and all Town mafia roles are RoS mafia role.
That would mean indie would make sense as WAWH are my own indie roles.
This would mean, 14 Town, 6 Mafia and 10 Indie.

Now to answer my own RQS:

1) Suspicions are a strange thing. They don’t occur often for me. Gonkey in this example, a lot of people saying he is likely scum. Personally I think he just fucked up.

2) I have no prime suspicions so…

3) I have two main activity periods in my afternoons and midnight to 3AM. I read the new content when I come on. I may not post that frequently as I may not have anything to contribute to discussion.

4) I’m sticking to my day 1 guns of “this is a chop-shop mafia” (Roles cut from loads of mafias and welded together and painted one colour.)

5) I’d read through the thread and pick the player who has the biggest negative contribution. In a case where no player like that exist I would remove the one who contributed the least.

Another RQS would be nice.

I’m not great at making RQS’ but I’ll give making one a go.

An RQS!

1) Who are your prime suspicions on right now?

2) Asides from those who you are majorly suspicious of, is there anyone else who has raised your suspicions?

3) How often do you plan on posting? (Hard numbers only)

4) What are you thinking about this setup now we have a bit more information?

5) If you could remove one player of your choice from this game immediately, who would it be and why?

Not sure if this is a good RQS at all. I avoided re-asking similar questions from day one with an exception of ones about suspicions as those will constantly change. I will post my answers in an EBWOP or near by post as I’m pressed for time at the moment.

There is a fierce shaking as the door begins to part and disappear into the walls. The people on the market place probably could have felt that mini earthquake as well. Where the door once was is now nothing, the inside of the temple is immediately stairs down and it is very dark. Iter leads the way and begins glowing in the darkness, illuminating the area around him.
“I must say, I’m surprised this door is open but I am also very happy, thank you” Iter says.
