Few people had suggestions for which case they wanted to research as a group. But a vocal minority decided a certain pesky case needed to be destroyed.


Sharkfin (Ending Conclusions) was eliminated. He was a Debater.

Night 3 (debate round) begins!

Send in your actions before the phase ends (regardless of when the update goes up) or they will not be accepted.

Well, that was only because he wouldn't tell us how to kill him. And it was an accident. Sort of.

TIH was the only one to actually switch. I assumed he found out the one he voted for first was already claimed, but I was too lazy to check. :P

I checked earlier and it wasn't claimed, but I was too lazy to mention it.

The one he switched away from. You can double check if you want,I might have missed it, but I'm pretty sure changing the world through an affirmative ballot was unclaimed.

It was unclaimed and still is unclaimed. Current unclaimed cases are Changing the world through an aff ballot, Four legged tables, Abolish values, Abolish topicality, and Solving all (sig and sub) problems. Those should correspond to Cyberknight, Hammy, Ginga Ninja, Nerdripper, and Gumbo Soup.

The punishment of the silent continued. After all, it's hard to win debate tournaments (or even rounds) if you don't speak up!

Two lone researchers continued to lay waste to the field of competition, testing new briefs in their respective debate rounds.

They were effective.

But they were not the only ones who made headway during the debate round...



Hammy (Abolish Topicality) has been eliminated. He was a Debater.

Johnnyw256 (Cut Funding to Timers) has been eliminated. He was a Debater.

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

Day 3 (speech round) begins!

We are losing and we need to change strategy. I recommend that we trade, that is the only way we find mafia at this point.

I've kinda been lurking the whole game but here is my RPM, accept what you will. Marina tried to do something last night but couldn't because her target was dead


You are a Debater.

Your case is Changing the World Through an Affirmative Ballot.

Your role is Eavesdropper.

Your power is Spy. This means that you can select one player, by name, each night. You will then learn any information said player received, or which events were the results of the targeted player's actions.

Yeah yeah. You should be ashamed. But life is so much more fun when you know what everyone else is doing.

This is true. I tried to investigate Brett, but I was unable to get any results since he was killed in the night. Here's my RPM:

Your case is The Case for CompAd.

Your role is The Older Sibling.

Your power is Case Investigate. This means that you can select one player, by name, each night. You will then learn the case that belongs to the player targeted.

Being an older sibling, you have a few tools at your disposal. By tools I mean underlings. By underlings I mean younger siblings. They are great for flowing cases for you, if you know how to get them on task. You do.


I investigated Cashley night one and confirmed that his case was Mandatory Mandates. I tried to investigate maranathaman night two (since he had been accused by Evan), but he was also killed during the night.

Your case is Taking Stock of Issues.

Your role is Tournament Director's Kid.

Your power is J.O. Disqualification. This means that, once this game, at night, you may select one player by name. The targeted player will be eliminated from the game. You do not need to know the targeted player's case to eliminate them.

Being the Tournament Director's kid affords you some equity with tournament staff. When you cash that in is up to you, but you can use it to devastate another debater, for sure.

Being a Kitchen Staff Member means that you are a very good cook and are skilled at keeping the competitors healthy and safe throughout the tournament.

Yeah, you're a little accident-prone. But it's also a really good alibi when you spill coffee on another debater's box... and briefs... and laptop. Oh well, guess that cleanup will keep them busy a while.

Hey fam, so sorry for being completely useless and inactive up to this point! I was coaching at a debate camp all week and underestimated how busy I would be. I've lurked a bit, but I'm not super up on what's going on.

I do see, however, that there's been a movement to reveal RPMs publicly. I mean, that's cool and all, and I can reveal mine if that's been decided upon as a good idea. However, I was under the impression that mafia used cases to eliminate debaters... so could someone explain to me how this isn't a horrible idea?

Most of us already claimed cases earlier, and I didn't really think about that when I posted the rpm. Also, I would think that mafia uses usernames to nk.
We probably should be more careful though.
