Quote from: FireArrow on April 09, 2019, 01:28:33 PMIf we have a guardian, I see no reason why they shouldn't claim and guard themselves every night.
Can the guardian even guard themselves though? I can't remember whether the default, if left unstated, was to allow them to guard themselves, or not. Even without cardflipping, claiming could be a valid strategy if they can guard themselves.

Can someone remind me what a Lynch Abstention is?

Also, the guardian details don't specify that it can't be themselves... so I don't see why not

Late night tonight.

In the night...

Blinky died. It is now Day 1.  Day 1 ends at a time when I am not this dead tired and I cut my foot on a rock while surfing FireArrow you didn't tell me the ocean was so dangerous

This post will be updated to look like a real one eventually

Cool, we lose an active player. Probably a fear kill or bad PR read, gonna lean on the latter. Anyone here got insight into who might think blinky was guardian for not wanting people to claim?

You seem awfully concerned about private communication for night one.

Wow, I completely missed the beginning of this game. I'm here now. Also, this is me confirming I received my role.

i think the weirder thing is that you responded to my post at two different times, and only this time around were you suspicious of what i said. looks artificial

i'm worried about out of thread communication though because i'm not good at keeping up with it. i'm socially awkward and prefer in thread talk

Voozio

Hello peoples. I guess it seems customary to publicly voice that I received my role so I'm doing that now since I haven't said anything yet. I've been followin along

The helpful answer is best asap, anything related to questioning/suspicions/getting people to talk I'd rather wait till day one.

My best guess is that Blinky was a process of elimination kill, as in, "who's active who we might not be able to pin a suspicion on later," because wolfing an inactive is usually not a good strategy (I say "usually" because there are indeed exceptions to everything :P ), and given the number of people who didn't post or only made one post, that would narrow down the choice quite a bit.

I'm willing to write it off as not being too familiar with NSM's style.

Wait, there's a N0 kill? That's not how I'm used to doing things

Yep, the game starts on a night. Welcome to NSM. ;D

J'arrive.

I confirm receipt of my Role PM and such!

Anyways, hai, the name's Kai! I'm a blue fluffy foxcat thing. I've been playing MafiaWolf games in one form or another for a loooong time, and after sampling all of them, I still think this style is the best and has the most potential for exciting and engaging gameplay. It's a shame that it has died out in favor of more austere, conservative variants, and I am here to make sure that it gets a chance to live again!

Let's give this one all we've got!

I can't remember whether the default, if left unstated, was to allow them to guard themselves, or not. Even without cardflipping, claiming could be a valid strategy if they can guard themselves.
Huh, is a self-protecting Guardian the default around here? Because this setup was designed with a Guardian that can't self protect. (My bad for not making that explicit  :-[ )

If mikey already sent said Guardian a Role PM that allows for self-protection...well, there's no use crying over spilt mechanics. If there is a Guardian, claiming and self-guarding could be a viable strategy in this case, as it basically gives us a cleared human for the whole game
The problem is that this opens us up to be totally robbed of our investigative powers by the Wolves: they could decide to throw out a Power Seer/Tracker fakeclaim to counter the other blue, forcing us to get rid of them both (and naturally, the Guardian can't get any clears in this situation because they're too busy protecting themselves.)
Of course, if we don't have a Guardian, then both of our roles are basically unprotected info roles, and nobody should claim unless they have a useful result or it's a PFD (e.g a Day with 5-6 players alive.)

More specifically, it means that the town must lynch every Day – there's no option to No-Lynch.

Anyways, since my last experience with the players in this game ranges from "4ish years ago" to "never ever", I am, by definition, not a big meta guy. Does the Blinky kill ping anyone who is?
