Topic: Forum Games / Disrupted Rhythm [RP] Sign-ups open now!

Alright, let’s do this thing.

Name: Jim Croxley
Age: 27, give or take however many years the trip took.
Gender: Male
Job: Scout – Basically, the guy who risks his ass for all the other shmucks on the ship by heading out and reccing the area beforehand. Handy with a silenced SMG and knife, too.
Bio: Jim has kind of a dark backstory to him. Nothing overly edgy, just typical things like growing up in relative poverty with abusive parents and only a few friends and relatives who cared about him, and many of those dying by the time he started work, and then he wasn’t so good at work, and ended up being limited to either fast food cashier or criminal as career choices, and cashier didn’t pay so well so he got himself into a gang of people as their scout, in which he’d scout areas before those guys got there to set up the best positions for shootouts and robberies, and he was a skinny sumbitch so he was fairly good at it and then one day he got caught out by a patrolling officer and arrested, and the government basically forced him into the army as a scout on pain of death if he didn’t do it, and then he got shot in the face a year after that, so he had to go to hospital for half a year or so to recover, and by that point he’d apparently still not cleared his name sufficiently and couldn’t really go back into the army, so instead he was given training for space and sent off to this long-distant planet so nobody else would never have to hear from him again. You know, standard stuff.
Personality: Despite his hardships, Jim tries to remain as cheerful as possible whilst around others, making polite conversation and so on, but he’s kind of a mess underneath that. Living a life such as his that officially ends with you being shot in the face will do that to you. Anyway, he actually much prefers not talking to people ever, hence why he chose to be a scout for this mission. And good riddance, in his mind, since the rest of the party are whackjobs according to him – “We’ve got the emotionless coffee machine with no good reason to be there, the raging oversized hulk with anger issues, that drunkard of a mercenary, and… and… and who the hell calls their kid Drake? That’s basically the go-to generic name for any space captain ever, I swear to [official redaction] God.” Not that he voices these thoughts around the others, of course. He’s much too polite for that…
Equipment & Items: Grenade x2, Panacea
Stats:
HP: 500 (0)
DMG: 200 (5)
Speed: 64 (7)
Specials:
Passive:
Observant II: Jim’s standard vision extends outward N squares farther than his fellows, and he is also able to detect even those objects that others would miss so long as they are within N squares of himself. N = the level of this skill.
[At level 2, Jim’s standard vision extends outward to four squares beyond that which he is located in, and he can detect otherwise undetectable objects so long as they are within 2 squares of his person.]
Stealthy I: If Jim enters a square containing any number of opponents, he has a N% chance to avoid combat with them unless he specifically wishes to attack them, and even then enters combat with these opponents being unaware of his presence; similarly, he has a N% chance to avoid triggering any otherwise offensive forces such as traps of any sort if he moves into a square that triggers in this manner, and will have an N% chance to disarm simple examples of such triggers, e.g. non-mechanical traps, for future passes through by himself and his allies if he does avoid them. N = the level of this skill x 15.
[At level 1, Jim has a 15% chance to not trigger combat automatically, to avoid traps and other events triggered by moving into the square containing them, and to disarm simple triggers for future encounters.]
Active:
Hide II: Jim hides in some bushes, runs behind a large rock only to apparently vanish into thin air, or otherwise attempts to make enemy characters lose track of his location. Basically, if the location he is in has sufficient cover, Jim may effectively cloak himself for N turns, during which time enemies cannot see or attack him at all; beyond this time, he may try to remain hidden, but he will automatically be detected if he makes an attack against an opponent or moves into plain sight, though enemies will assume he has left the area and become unaware of his presence after 10 – 1/2N (rounded up) turns of undetected activity, i.e. him or the results of his actions not being seen by them, or attacking them in any way. N = the level of this skill.
[At level 2, Jim may remain unseen for 2 guaranteed turns, and enemies will become unaware of his presence after 9 turns of undetected activity.]
Stealthed Attack II: Jim either sneaks up on a target to slice or stab them with his knife, or quietly picks them off from a reasonable distance with his silenced SMG. This skill cannot be used unless Jim’s enemies are unaware of his location and/or presence, but deals N% more damage than a standard attack whilst he is hidden, or 2N% more damage if that target is also unaware of his presence. This attack normally alerts enemies of his presence, and his location in the case of the targeted enemy, if they were not already aware of it, but if it manages to kill a target outright, there is a 3/5N% chance that enemies will not automatically detect his presence, i.e. if he did not perform the kill in plain sight of an enemy or whilst they were already aware of his presence, though if the latter is true, such a kill will count as undetected activity for the purposes of Hide unless the body of the killed target is discovered. N = the level of this skill x 25.
[At level 2, this skill deals 50% more damage than standard to a target that is unaware of his location, 100% more damage than standard to a target that is unaware of his presence, and has a 30% chance to not reveal his (continued) presence to other enemies if he succeeds in killing a target with this attack whilst they are unaware of his presence.]
Unload I: Throwing caution to the wind, Jim shoots or violently stabs a target, over and over and over… and over and over… and over… and over… and over and over again. And over… holy crap, dude, you can stop now, it’s probably dead. This skill deals damage to the chosen target 2N + 1 times more than a standard attack would, but each individual attack has only 75% of the accuracy that a standard attack possesses, though attacks that miss have a 10N% chance to hit any targets located roughly behind or near the initial target, depending on whether this skill is performed in melee or shooting range. Using this skill immediately alerts all enemies in the area of Jim’s presence if they were unaware of his presence, though not his location unless he is in plain sight of them whilst using this attack. N = the level of the skill.
[At level 1, this skill can damage a target up to 4 times, and any attacks that miss have a 10% chance of hitting targets near to/behind the intended target, depending on range.]

Aaand Kravoka is banished. Ohhhh… kaaaay. WELL, let’s just get back to working on this brand-new universe of… stuff.
…hmm. I don’t recall making any stuff. Not even these tiny, ever-so-tiny-yet-apparently-randomly-acting objects. Just time. I suppose that’s fine, since an infinite number of universal timelines with this development do not end with my insanity… and yet an infinite number of them do end like that. I can’t help but wonder if the only difference between some of them is “I go insane”, and whether that’s even in my control… or if it’s perfectly under my control, and I can only go insane if I decide to turn insane. Hmm. Food for thought. Speaking of which, is that one of my domains now? I apparently know everything about anything, even things that don’t make rational sense and never will in this sort of… I guess it is? Oh well. I suppose that I’m probably the “ask me anything” guy now. That’s going to be annoying when I’m trying to do things with existence.
Hey, let’s make something else. It seems like this infinite white void is… well, big, but I can’t imagine that it’s going to look brilliant later on, when these tiny tiny items are passing through it endlessly without any sort of medium to- well, I guess there is, but the colour’s all wrong. Too bright. No distinction between these tiny objects and those tiny objects.
‘So, does anyone else think this blank space should be a different colour? I think it should be a different colour.’

Did you forget this? I’m fairly sure that counts as a vote against someone that isn’t defensive in nature. So, a lot of holes in your argument, Sabin, which makes me suspect that you’re pulling arguments out of your backside to try and get rid of me. Vote: Sabin7, for both self-defensive purposes and his hole-riddled argument.

I’m not really convinced you’re scum, but I don’t believe lynching BC is the way to go, so I’m keeping this on you until BC is unvoted. If BC IS lynched and isn’t scum, then I will be voting you tomorrow.

Indeed, Sabin is targeting you for a reason. But even if it’s not thoroughly explained well, it still is a reason nonetheless to target you for a vote, and it’s voting that gets us active, and at least a step closer to getting rid of the mafia false-believers of the spaghetti monster.

I won’t deny that I’m being pretty obstinate in keeping my vote on you, since he could be lying. I’m just trying to foresee the aftermath here. If:

  • BC gets lynched and is scum, then us townies are making progress.
  • BC gets lynched, and is not scum, then Sabin will indeed be suspicious.
  • Sabin gets lynched and is a cop, then our further votes will solely rely on us analyzing and guessing each others intentions/motives. And that also proves that you are scum.
  • Sabin gets lynched and is not a cop, but just another townie then yeah…bad idea. Or, if he was one of the mafia then that’d be great (but highly unlikely). But, this still doesn’t quite prove that you’re not mafia-aligned.
  • Another player claims to be priest (cop) then that’ll change a lot of things. Again, that will only lead into further complications..I’ll remove my vote if this does happen.


This is off. Since there are more townies than scums, it is the duty for the accuser to prove the scum-ness of the accused, not the other way round. The burden of proof should not lie on the accused.


Sabin’s reluctance to impart information to town strikes me as scummy. so Vote Sabin7. And let me sketch the consequences.



  • Sabin7 is lynched and flips lyncher. Then we know BC is innocent since lynchers usually do not have scum as targets.

  • Sabin7 flips some other townie role. Then, except that we will have lynch a liar, there is no good news.

  • Sabin7 flips cop. Then we know BC is scum and I will vote him next day.

  • BC flips scum. Then good.

  • BC flips townie. Then Sabin7 should be lynched next day.

So, all votes withstanding, I only have two votes, whilst Sabin has three. QUED.]

Brilliant, so tall strong and fragile over there has given us all some traits of his, possibly boosted by my own contribution to him of creativity. Rhythm is my reward for initial kindness, it seems, and it immediately becomes clear to me that this empty void lacks a rhythm. It’s quiet… too quiet.
It needs some background noise.
Well, it needs some actual substance, first and foremost, but…
’I’m going to go over there for a moment,’ I tell the other gods, directing my arm (bulging the veil with my arm, rather) in any random direction, since the direction I pick doesn’t particularly matter. ‘You may feel a slight shockwave in a few… a few, erm…’
…a few what? Ideally, I need to give that a name before trying to reference it. Whatever “it” is. Regardless, I travel in the direction I gestured towards, since it doesn’t matter… how did I come up with “direction”, anyway? Relative to what? Does that even matter without a point at which to move relative to? I mean, I suppose relative to the other deities, but… back on topic, Xiximn, you need to name that thing you were about to say. A name, perhaps a form of passage… this universe, this blank emptiness, it doesn’t progress at the moment, it doesn’t contain… it doesn’t have any… it’s ageless, eternal…
And the word hits me all at once. “Time” is what this slate lacks. Nothing is moving on, nothing is progressing through “time”, and so nothing can realistically progress once initially produced. And that’s part of the problem the forge god is having – he can mould that lump of flesh however he likes, make it as beautiful as anything, but it won’t move out of that state once he’s done with it, it won’t do anything…
Let’s change that.

Xiximn, in his current location, focuses his will on a single, infinitesimally small point, and simultaneously expands his will outward to encompass the entire infinite width, depth and breadth of this proto-universal state, this unchanging mass of nothingness that can do nothing, will do nothing, unless he adds his gift of rhythm to it…
All at once, the universe gains a new layer of depth, a palpable effect to the other gods and himself not unlike the otherwise physical shockwave promised by Xiximn. It begins to progress, the formlessness shifting into new arrangements of formlessness right now, but if appropriately manipulated, with the potential to accrue into an infinite arrangement of anything in existence; the universe now moves along to a constant beat, not unlike a perpetually-expanded “tick” that, when slowed is itself composed of an infinite number of the same perpetually-elongated sound, yet so quiet that even the gods would have trouble hearing it if they were not paying attention.
Yet without realising it, the god of knowledge has opened himself up to insanity unbridled, for he is now aware of quite literally every single infinitesimally small branch that that universe could now take, and every single infinitesimally small branch from each of those branches, and so on and so forth in an ever-expanding meta-tree of temporal cause and effect, every single possible timeline and consequence, and the knowledge comes ever so close to breaking apart even the mind of a deity…

I scream. It is a very loud scream, and goes on for a while.
I eventually stop screaming once the fear of madness subsides. Somehow, by the skin of my teeth, I have evaded insanity and offense, and… oh, I know everything, and yet I know nothing, for none of the knowledge I now possess means anything, for it is infinite, and so any one tidbit of information is quite literally as nothing in that sea of mental…
What have I done to myself, I wonder? Ah, this is going to be… hideously complex to maneuver around. After a time, I return to the other deities, remaining silent for the time being. Let’s just pretend all is well, hm? Maybe I won’t… maybe I won’t spiral into that well, after all. After all, I haven’t done so yet, right?
Though I have all of time to do so still. I’d whimper, but at least an infinite number of potential timelines has that whimper start me off on that path to madness, so I don’t.

I observe as the other gods converse, my veil of myself hiding my true appearance well enough. Certainly, talking is all well and good, but what about? Apparently, some non-existent deity called “Feeling”. Or “Feeling” is one of the other deities, and they’ve simply abstained from speaking up until now; regardless, one of the other gods is apparently not satisfied with that state of affairs, and for some insane reason, tears the flesh- “flesh”, I should say, us being entities of… of what, I wonder? That’s a good question, I’ll have to find that out- from his chest to mould a new object. Or try to; he appears to be having trouble, for some reason, and ultimately asks us for help in a manner that seemingly loses its last couple of words to the void around us. I can’t imagine what he’s missing… or maybe I can. Maybe I could even come up with a new concept and give it to everyone else, copies of something already possessed by me… something like… what should I call this metaphysical spark, this need to build, create… creativity! Yes, let’s give out some of that!

A few bright blue sparks of energy emerge from the veil surrounding Xiximn, and rush towards the other deities, absolving themselves into their bodies with no physical trace left should nothing else be done to them. These are the metaphysical sparks of creativity, granting the other gods the capacity to think, to come up with ideas and resolve them into reality at their whim, now possessed by these gods where once they were not.

‘A “welcome to existence” gift from me to you. You’re welcome.’ I say, after the fact. Still, creativity is one thing; what I and the other gods can potentially do with this creativity, now that’s another thing entirely…

Name: Xiximn
Elements: Magic, creativity, knowledge
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
General Information: Male deity that generally appears to be wreathed in a veil of what appears to be an infinite number of copies of himself, the veil making determining any exact physical details about him nigh-impossible, though there is typically a great amount of blue, in various shades, surrounding his personage. He doesn’t like communicating with other deities, and is almost constantly twitchy in terms of how he may act at any given moment, though the general theme of “go away I’m doing a thing that may or may not be godscience” is ever-present in any conversation he partakes in.

I recall some non-HappyYay person tried it once, but it didn’t capture my interest the same way. I think the maps HY used were important because they gave a real, concrete indication of progress. More than just words could accomplish.

It’s great seeing how you can find faults in his reasoning, but you still haven’t quite proven yourself to not be mafia-aligned. Despite you being an active here.

The reasoning is self-evident, surely: if Sabin isn’t a cop, then he was lying about my being a mafioso; and even if he is, it’s very likely that he was misled somehow, e.g. via Framer framing or Bus Driver target switching. As for proving conclusively that one is town-aligned, that’s not generally possible, since “proving” something implies that you can show uncontrovertible evidence towards it being true, which isn’t possible in a mafia game, seeing as how copypasting role PM images isn’t allowed.

Yeah, something important actually – Reason. If you have a reason, despite it being brief or sort, and even role-claim then I’ll believe you. Why wouldn’t I? I don’t intend to have trust become a big issue here in the game.

What legitimate reason has Sabin given for voting me? You’re proposing that a roleclaim has more clout than it actually does; he’s given no actual evidence so far beyond “I’m a cop, I investigated Kadleon and BC, BC is bag duy”, and as I previously stated, it’s entirely possible that he’s lying for the sake of a cover-up, and relying on the general player activity to hide his misdemeanour.

You’re trying to lure this topic into another case, and get us to think about the other mafia players here. Not happening.

I’m trying to point out that, once more, he might be misled by other mafia players into receiving a false result, if it so happens that he is a cop. Also, way to try and get a Freudian Slip out of me. “Not happening”, in your words.

[occurrences chain]

Mmm. Convenient timing, isn’t it? But if he’s a priest, and investigated Kadleon on night 2 and myself on night 3, who did he investigate on night 1? Or rather, why did he not investigate anyone then, since he’s supposedly only investigated myself and Kadleon so far? Because I think he might have made up both results on account of it being convenient for him to do so for those nights – Kadleon evidently died night 2 by an investigation, and if Sabin’s a lyncher with me as his lynchee, he wouldn’t want to single me out as soon as he could. No, he’d want to wait for an appropriate time to do so, and by waiting the extra night, he can claim he was the investigator of both Kadleon and me to back up his claim of priest/cop.

As he said before, investigating a mafia-member automatically triggers their death, but I guess that auto-death doesn’t apply to mafia-aligned players.

All of that is wrong. Kad apparently died from a unique role descriptor; chances are the mafia won’t have that effect on them.

Then, there’s also the death of Leb on night 3. There’s no doubt that the mafias were active on that night, and Sabin didn’t kill any of because he was investigating you.

The assumption here is amusing to behold, that of Sabin actually being a cop. I’m not certain I mentioned this yet, but claiming to be a cop doesn’t automatically clear one’s name; aside from the whole “Sabin could be lying” argument I’ve put forward so often now, he could easily be a mafia-aligned cop on top of anything else, and lying to give the town a false target to aim for. Throw off the scent, etcetera.

This is generally my guess, and hence why I believe in his claim. As you said, yes there’s some flaws in how he explained his reasoning for his vote which could be BS-voting, but I tend to keep that separate from what he has already revealed. And I get that of course you’ll be trying to defend yourself from getting lynched, but being lynched as a _____? What role you have in the game is what bothers me right now.

As I said, a role reveal on the part of anyone other than a cop (and then only if the cop actually has evidence) is a pretty silly bet, since it immediately tells the mafia who to target or not target with NKs, depending on whether the revealer in question holds a power role or not. You’ll therefore understand if I withhold my role for the time being.

A: Be a cop, get people I know are mafia members lynched without mafia catching on to the fact that I’m a cop

And immediately fail by, first enacting a BSV, then making yourself seem ludicrously suspicious by proposing that you had “a very good reason to [vote BC]” that you didn’t tell anyone about.

Oh wait, scum is getting defensive. Thus, revision as thus:
B: Roleclaim cop, continue as normal.

Oh wait, the guy you just accused is getting defensive because he doesn’t like being voted at for ridiculous reasons. SO HOW ’BOUT THAT SCUMMY BEHAVIOUR ON MY PART, HUH, GUYS? ಠ_ಠ

First off (excusing my inadequate knowledge in how cop roles work), wouldn’t it be foolish for the cop to reveal their role straight off the bat to begin with? That gives the mafia an opportunity to kill our only helper. It seems appropriate that Sabin should keep his role hidden until the time calls where he needs to reveal (or role-claim) it.

And that time should be “as soon as they decide to act on their gathered information”, not “shortly after they’ve acted on their gathered information in the worst way they could possibly think of”. Again, Sabin’s suspicious precisely because he voted with BS reasoning first and roleclaimed afterwards.

Indeed, Sabin is targeting you for a reason. But even if it’s not thoroughly explained well, it still is a reason nonetheless to target you for a vote, and it’s voting that gets us active, and at least a step closer to getting rid of the mafia false-believers of the spaghetti monster.

So, what, if I’d targeted Sabin first, you’d automatically have voted for Sabin with no leniency on that front? Yes, that’s clearly very sound logic indeed. Or am I missing something?

BC gets lynched and is scum, then us townies are making progress.
BC gets lynched, and is not scum, then Sabin will indeed be suspicious.

You say that like my being lynched would be a positive outcome regardless of whether or not I was mafia-aligned. I hasten to point out that only five people have made any contribution as of today, and only two people contributed anything on day three, one of those being myself; assuming mafia has at least two mafiosos available to them, they could effectively win by default if nobody else votes during the day. Hence my earlier accusations of collusion on your part and Sabin’s, which I still don’t feel you’ve addressed sufficiently.

Sabin gets lynched and is a cop, then our further votes will solely rely on us analyzing and guessing each others intentions/motives. And that also proves that you are scum.

If he turns out to be a cop, what it proves is that he’s a cop, not necessarily that I’m a mafioso. Even if he did investigate me, there’s every likelihood of there being a Framer or Bus Driver equivalent in the ranks of mafia. So there’s that to consider.

Sabin gets lynched and is not a cop, but just another townie then yeah…bad idea. Or, if he was one of the mafia then that’d be great (but highly unlikely). But, this still doesn’t quite prove that you’re not mafia-aligned.

If he’s not a cop, then he was lying, and deliberately trying to frame me as a mafioso. Somehow, I doubt most of his testimony will hold up if it turns out that he wasn’t a cop after all. Just saying.

And if Sabin7 is the cop, then what? Either way, we still don’t know what BCLEGENDS role is, as he didn’t even bother to reveal, or at least role-claim up till now. I don’t think anyone is going to try false-claiming as cop, because that’s too risky for both the townie and mafia.

No one claimed to be cop but Sabin7 himself, after Kadleon’s death. In addition, if he really was lying one or either of you would’ve revealed yourself as the real cop now, yes?

I think we’ve established thoroughly by now that there’s every possibility of Sabin false-claiming priest as a cover after the fact of his poor-argument vote. People aren’t really posting very much in this thread right now, are they? I reckon if I were in Sabin’s position, I would probably be able to falseclaim cop and rely on the lack of activity up to this point to cover my tracks. And I’m not going to reveal my role, because that isn’t actually helpful for any role other than the cop, who, once they decide to tell people that they know who the mafia are, should ideally roleclaim cop immediately to back up their claims and/or votes; the reason Sabin is so suspicious to me is because he didn’t immediately roleclaim cop, but instead made a lot of arguments with not much reasonable substance behind them first, and only roleclaimed after Pulsaris and I had called him out for BS-voting. (Also, new mafia term/acronym/whatever to consider: BSV, shorthand for bullshit-vote or bullshit-voting, wherein the voter makes a poor argument toward their target as a token excuse to get a vote in on that person.)

Secondly, being a priest of the Order of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, I can safely say that the powers I have are not my own, but those granted me by his Holy Noodliness.

1. Puls already addressed this with the possibility that you’re a lyncher trying to find justification for lynching your lynch target quickly. Alternatively, you may be a mafioso picking targets; acting like a VI for the duration of a vote, only to come up with justification after the fact, looks very scummy from my perspective.
2. Say you are a priest, and say you did investigate Kadleon that night. What would prevent another player, aptly named the Flying Spaghetti Monster, from having investigated Kadleon on the same night as you? It’s unlikely that that’d happen, true, but it seems to me, as I already said, like Helltank wouldn’t make such a generalised comment.

As I previously mentioned, why would Sabin wait until after he’d made poorly-conceived arguments and had two people call him out for it to claim he was a cop? Also, there’s no evidence whatsoever beyond his own say to suggest that he actually is a cop, whereas the evidence proposing that he’s a mafioso – bad arguments, delayed roleclaim, apparently claiming he was the reason Kadleon died when he likely wasn’t – is rather significant in scale. Essentially, I find it highly unlikely that he’s telling the truth about being a priest, and I’m not sure why you think he is one, beyond the possibility that you’re for whatever reason colluding with him today. Some reasoning behind why you believe his claim might be in order, I think.

I am the priest, the cop-like. I investigated Kadleon, triggering his death, and last night I investigated BC, finding him to be a mafia-aligned player.

And pray tell, if you are what you say you are, why would you not have simply revealed that fact from the offset? If it would have supposedly removed a mafioso from play, would it not be worth risking your own in-game life for the greater good of the town? Substituting in clearly flawed arguments hasn’t done you any favours, certainly, and Puls makes a good point about you potentially being a lyncher, especially considering Kadleon’s role description:

He was a Third-Party Arsonist. During the night, he could plant explosive jalapenos in people. At any point, he could detonate all the jalapenos, killing everyone they’re planted in. Although he was immune to night kills, he would die instantly if targeted by the investigative abilities of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

The investigative abilities of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Not one of his priests. Unless the FSM isn’t actually a role in this game, and “investigative abilities of the Flying Spaghetti Monster” is a general reference to Town-aligned investigation roles in general, though I find it unlikely that Helltank would generalise like that if the FSM weren’t a role in its own right, considering the potential for confusion that that conundrum presents.

@Sabin: I’d like to point out that so far, very few people have voted for anyone whatsoever, yourself included in that number until this day phase, and that nobody has voted for a mafia member yet, going by the roles of the people that have died so far. Also,

Originally posted by BCLEGENDS:

Yeah, well, Gonkey’s starting to look like he’ll be more of a detriment than a help. And to be fair, Pulsaris would be correct about my vote towards tehdarkside being somewhat less valid than before. Unvote: tehdarkside; then vote: Gonkeymonkey.

Did you forget this? I’m fairly sure that counts as a vote against someone that isn’t defensive in nature. So, a lot of holes in your argument, Sabin, which makes me suspect that you’re pulling arguments out of your backside to try and get rid of me. Vote: Sabin7, for both self-defensive purposes and his hole-riddled argument.

@Puls’ RQS:
1. Honestly, I wouldn’t be able to tell who was town and who was mafia myself. As Puls said, not many people posting means little opportunity for a tell.
2. Again, I’d probably agree with Puls on this one, with the addendum that making an RQS doesn’t automatically make one inviolate of the crime of mafioso… ism. Yeah, that whole charade. I think I probably mentioned that before at least once. But again, not many tells, so crystal’s likely to be a townie.
3/4. Much as I hate to propose this, maybe a random vote would be a good way to kickstart activity in lurkers? As a last resort, mind you, since nearly anything is better than just covering your eyes, holding an arm out, and spinning around to point at a random victim, but a steady supply of no-lynches is a guaranteed loss for town, whereas random votes may eventually result in a mafioso being taken out if town is lucky. Again, only as a last resort; if we can come up with ways of getting people to do things over time that doesn’t involve RNG, so much the better.

Prince Samuel
Woah! That’s a lot of power added to my attack… probably. I’m not entirely sure, since I stopped adding power the moment I fired the projectile, but going by how the two clashing attacks are producing a pretty substantial lightshow, I’m guessing it’s a lot. Certainly, it’s enough to halt the progress of the opposing beam; and, shortly after they begin clashing, the opposing beam fades out and gets pushed back to where it came from – or rather, it stops halting the progress of what seems like it might be mostly Iris’ beam, which flies into the sky, finding no resistance in either the beam or the cybernetic demon from before.
…where is that, anyway? I think, going by the arc it was on, it’ll have landed in a…
In a civilian area.
Oh, hell. I can hear the sirens from here. I’d start running over there ASAP, and indeed I start to do so on the dot, but my attention is swiftly drawn by that one cat demon, which apparently vanished itself for the majority of that last clash, and is now seated atop the unconscious body of the five-headed monkey demon. This creature… this is the second altercation I’ve been in with it. I’m starting to wonder…
Now, when I point at the creature and speak, what I actually say is ‘Right, you… what’s your deal? Why are you targeting me specifically?’
What actually comes out of the helmet, presumably stated by Shrike at a nearly unintelligible rate to keep up with my words, and which I only realise has been said after I finish my own speech, is as follows:
‘What de fuck didjoo just fuckeeng say about me, joo liddle beetch? I’ll hev joo kno I graduated top of me class een de Navy Seeels, en’ I’ve been involved een nee-yoomerous seecrit reehds on Al-Qway-eeda, an’ I hev over 300 confirmed keells. I em trehned een goreella warfare and I’m de top snoipah-’
And that one word was uttered in an Australian rather than a Mexican accent, I should add.
‘-een de entire US armed forces. Joo are notheenk to me but just anudder target. I weell wipe joo de fuck out wit’ preceeshon de likes of wheech has never been seen before on dis Earth, mark my fuckeeng words. Joo think yoo can ged awey wid saying that sheet to me over de Innernet? Theenk agehn, esse. As we speak I am contacting mah seecret network a spies across the Joo-Esse-’
At this point, he slips out of the exaggerated Mexican accent into an exaggerated Southern American accent.
‘-an’ your Ah-Pee is being trayced rahght now so y’all bettah prepahre for thuh stoahm, maggot. The stoahm that wahpes out the puh-thetic little thing y’all call yo’r lahfe. You’re fuckin’ dead, kid. Ah can be aneh-whay-re, aneh-tahme, an’ ah can kill y’all-’
And then he moves on from the Southern accent to what is apparently a bad French accent…
‘-een ovehr seven hundred wehys, an’ zat’s just viz my behr hands. Not only am I extehnseev-lee trained in unarghmed combat, but I have ac-sess to-’
…and then he moves into imitating what is apparently an extremely angry German drill seargeant…
‘-ze entire AH-senal of ze United Staytes Mareen Corps and I VILL use it to eets FULL EXTENT to VIPE your MIS-ER-AH-BEL ahss off ze face of ze CONTINENT, you little SHIT! If only you could have KNOWN vhat UNHOLY-’
And then he just drops the accents entirely, and begins screaming at him in Received Pronounciation, i.e. Queen’s English, and I imagine what I heard was much quieter than what volume he was actually using at this point.
‘-retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue! But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot! I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it! You’re fucking dead, kiddo!’
And all of that in a few seconds. It takes me a couple more seconds to process what Shrike actually said, and then I take a third second to facepalm at the utter stupidity that it appears I seemingly just spewed at high speed.
And within that one second, the skinless cat splits in half along its body with a loud tearing sound, revealing, not its internal organs, but a pitch-black void the height of its body, and presumably the length of its body too.
Everything goes unnaturally quiet, as what feels to me like a mild, soundless breeze flows inward towards the cat for several seconds.
YOU’VE MADE A POOR CHOICE OF ENEMY, SAMUEL OF WALES.
The deformed monkey-like creature is sucked into the pitch-black void, swiftly followed by the two halves of the cat, before the void itself, at first still only as wide as pre-cat consumption, apparently collapses in on itself, vanishing entirely before it occurs to me through the shock of being addressed by name, directly to my mind it seems, that I missed my opportunity to kill it again, get your head in the game already, Samuel, you fool!
Joo fooooool! Ahahahaha! Hahaha, AAAH-
Okay, great, you can stop laughing whenever.
-haha, haha, haha- joo suck.
You suck. Now, I have a demon to catch.
Which is true: the cybernetic demon is still on the loose, I fear, and Iris and I have no time to lose. My perceptions apparently slowing automatically to prevent me from crashing into anything- though 95% chance Shrike did that again- I begin my high-speed run across the city.
No more than a couple of actual seconds later – though to my perception, it seems to be far longer – I find the location of the demon, which has by now terrified everyone on the street into a huddle, and is steadily advancing on the civilians. The sirens in the area are… very loud, let’s just say; even after all that energy expenditure and damage taken, the cyborg demon is still going strong. I leap down to the demon’s level, imagining that this next part of this fight is going to be extraordinarily long and drawn-out.
‘There yoo are, yoo pricks! Now, look ’ere: Oi’ve got theese civvies as ‘ostages, an’ if yoo don’t let me kill yoo both, Oi’m going to blow theese fooks to kingdom coom! Yoo got that?’
…or it can be a coward and take the civilians hostage with its rocket launcher. That’s also a thing.
Wait a minute, did it pluralise- oh, hey, Iris managed to follow me. Somehow. Despite my moving at extreme speeds… maybe she teleported after me. Or maybe she’s just that fast? I don’t know, but she looks upset at what’s going on. I don’t know about her, but I’m certainly not going to bend to this demon’s whims; I’m sure, if all else fails, that I could move fast enough to intercept a missile or plasma blast if necessary. I aim my rifle at it again, ready to deal with it if it chooses to attack us, and my feet prepared to move to the defense of the civilians if they get fired upon.

Angeline
Fucking god damn it, this is shit! “Oh, yeah, let’s just turn into deadly gas whenever we take damage,” like that’s not a completely horseshit mechanic they have! And fuck them for trying to blast me from the offset, too! A Furious Angel burst heals and empowers me, and I use the extra speed to move out of the way of the god damn shitty slime balls and towards another of the slimes to try and repeat my previous maneuver, and I swear to fuck if the slime balls home in on me, I will flip somebody’s shit.

Allie
Alright, that was less effective than I hoped for, er… so, I’m going to need more power than that to deal with them, it seems. Or at least more focused power. I get the distinct impression that my chemical attacks won’t be very effective against them either, all things considered, so…
So, I do have one thing that might work as intended. Aiming my hands at two of the slimes, including the one I just stunned, I fire a Detonation Rifle shot at each of the slimes, aiming at their cores specifically to try and kill them as quickly as possible.

[tl;dr: Angeline Furious Angel heal-buffs, then attempts to dodge the slime balls/slime gas and attack another slime in the same way as she did before; Allie aims and fires Detonation Rifle shots at two of the slimes, trying to hit their cores specifically.]

With regards to Helltank’s desire to make an RP superguide, that’s probably going to be rather more difficult to manage than a balanced ruleset for mafia games. Mafia games are, by their nature, somewhat orderly in terms of what each player is capable of doing with their role, and the goals being aimed for by players; try that in an RP, and all you’re doing is restricting players, though it’s certainly a good idea to try and nudge rather than shove players towards certain goals if you have a plot arc of any size in mind. One of the biggest problems I’ve encountered with many RPs, primarily on Kongregate, is that the players themselves simply stop posting, and this doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the quality of the RP itself. I think we can all agree that the original Ather City game and its sequel were some of the most well-received games on FGF, yet even they ended up having issues with player activity near their respective endpoints, and subsequent AC games didn’t even come close to their pagecount; meanwhile, one of the first RPs I was a part of, the FAW series, was highly active throughout its early runs, despite the strange and occasionally ridiculous concepts invoked, but started flagging in later games because the players just didn’t post often enough (though I highly suspect that the increasing maturity of all involved may have had something to do with that and, to some extent, other Kong RPs too). It may be that players nowadays get preoccupied with other things, such as real life, then procrastinate on making posts, lose focus on the RP, and eventually just drop out completely as a result.

To be frank, the closest modern equivalent to something as successful as Ather City or FAW would be [LABYRINTHIUM] Heroes, which has 60 pages and, despite players being replaced by other players every so often, is already at 60 pages and shows no particular signs of slowing down at the moment. I feel like a large portion of that is thanks to how it isn’t a pure RP; rather, it possesses a system of stats, combat, specific moves that players can make, etcetera, which provides a semblance of order to the otherwise potentially chaotic RP part of the game. Something like that might be a reliable way to ensure that RPs don’t collapse into unordered piles – make sure that at any given point, it has a system of stats to draw from for, e.g., combat, certain NPC convos, and the like. It might not be perfect, but it’d perhap separate “those who want to put effort into their RPs by giving them more structural depth” from “those who don’t”, though more power to those people that manage to run successful RPs without such crunchy tactics.

Oh hey, a new FQS.

1. Well, yes. I’m not good at mafia games, but I’ve played enough of them to have taken up both roles.
2. I could FoS tehdarkside, given the random vote they made against me, but that would be petty. Otherwise, I got nothing, beyond those inactive players crystal mentioned.
3. I HOPE SHE MADE LOTSA SPAGHETTI
