Seeing as this game is, for all intents and purposes, over...I feel like posting this one last post in this thread before the nearly-inevitable mafia win. Besides, even if they don't win and good somehow pulls a victory out of nowhere (crossing fingers), I feel my end-game summary is still relevant regardless of the specifics of what happens. I'm waiting to hear back from Effervescent on some questions of mine, but there really isn't much reason for me to stick around for the after-game. If Kay deletes this because of the no-after death post rule, I got it saved on my computer so it can be posted for later. For some inexplicable strange reason, though, I feel compelled to put it up now. Here's what I had planned out to post.

-----------------------------------------

What can I say about this game? It’s so incredibly frustrating that I really can’t put it into words. :evil:

We had everything going for us. And I mean, literally EVERYTHING. There was not supposed to be ANY possible way we could lose. The mafia was a complete joke (no offense...but I'm sure you guys can admit you weren't doing too hot at all in the beginning ;P). We had killed off two of them, and they’d only been able to kill one of us on accident. We were outnumbering them somewhere in the range of 9-1. And then we squandered it all away in the space of a few phases and lost anyway. How incompetent. How saddening. And what a cautionary tale for future good teams. This game will be the first I will point to in the future as an example of how complacency can be the #1 killer in mafia. (Yes, I was 100% guilty of complacency in this game, along with a bunch of other garbage. This game REALLY was not my game, or me putting my best foot forward at all.)

Sorry to be Mr. Raincloud, but I can’t exactly say I had much fun or will take away good memories from this game – and it’s pretty much all my fault. I feel so guilty for seemingly ruining everything here, and am seriously tempted to not participate in another mafia game for a while.

But you know what? I’m making a mountain out of a molehill here. I’m gonna pick myself up, dust myself off, laugh off me and my team’s mistakes here, and turn over a new leaf in the next game. God’s mercies are new every morning, and I feel that since this is over, the slate is wiped clean, and I can put this behind me. Besides, these things are supposed to be fun little diversions. I can’t exactly say why some (including myself) got so emotionally vested in this. But I’ve learned my lesson here, and am looking forward to the next venture. :)

All night actions are in. Do the three of you want to end the phase now or allow some more time for consideration?

Well, that's a majority.

The few survivors were on high alert, terrified by every noise, however small, that lurked out in the darkness. Who would be next? Would they be able to successfully identify the final imposter?

Dawn came and they cautiously emerged from their hiding places, surprised by the revelation that awaited them.


Nobody died. Congratulations on that, I guess. Day six starts now and ends as soon as all votes are in. Good luck.

The final three stood facing each other. Tris and her sometimes-enemy Peter folded their arms and glared at Jeanine, the author of all their woes. No longer would they put up with the world she envisioned.

Jeanine tried to use her serum against them, but they resisted her efforts. Tris would no longer be subject to her machinations.

In the end, Jeanine fell.


Anorton has died. He was diabolically and brilliantly evil.

The good team wins... by the skin of their teeth. Congratulations to all sides for their involvement.

I'll post some thoughts and the RPMs (the actions are all on paper, unfortunately, because I spent a lot of my GM time on mobile) later tonight, when I get home from club.

Sorry, but you lost faith too soon Evan. ;) We had it under control.

Andrew had a 50% chance of winning, a 25% chance of losing, and a 25% chance of continuing the game into the night phase, where he had a 50/50 chance at winning.

Kay, thank you so very much for running this game. Despite how anyone else feels, for me personally I had an absolutely fabulous time playing this game! I haven't felt so alive while playing mafia for a good while now. You always kept us jumping with a lot of hidden mechanics and/or powers that really kept things interesting. :) I'm just sorry that you had to have a lot of drama go down in your game. :|

Now a question, why did I not die night one? Who had a power to block it? Was it the same power that killed Jonah instead of Marina when I used my daykill? How did all that play out? :)

Effervescent, this was the most intense and fun mafia game I 've ever played. Thanks so much for running it!

And well played Andrew, well played.

Ditto Hammy's questions tho

Ohhhh... :cry:

Anyway, thanks SO much, Effervescent for running this game! I loved the challenge (being the only mafia left for a considerable amount of time was, um, interesting to say the least), and the mechanics were quite thought out. There were mistakes made on all sides ::cough::NoKillFirstDay::cough::, but I think it evened out in the end. The town may gripe about their mistakes, but mafia just can't reveal all the ones they made.

My side of things:
I started the game with a randomized nighttime redirect and power investigate. Somewhere along the way, I was awarded a daytime randomized redirect as well. When Sharkfin died, I inherited his kill, but lost my power investigate. Now, the problem with my redirects was that they uniformly select a target--I might be that target, too.

Thus, at this point in the game, each day phase gave me a 33% chance of dying and a 66% chance of advancing to the next night phase.
