Mafia LXXXV: Metroid Dread. Day 3.
« on: March 28, 2020, 11:36:24 PM »
Story Post

With the Space Pirates regrouping now that they know they are under attack, some wonder if there is a mole among them. They begin to argue amongst themselves which attracts the attention of the Federation and another firefight ensues. It also attracts the attention of Kraid who arrives to break it up. He explodes up from below the ground showing heavy rock debris everywhere and fires off some his thorny belly spikes. All sides run for cover. One person unable to run away is unlucky Space Pirate pokepal148. After getting beat-up in yesterday's firefight, he finds his legs are now broken from the rock debris when Kraid showed up from the ground. I might have done a Fez routine from the Austin Powers movies of pokepal148 attempting to let everyone know he is still alive and trying to get help. Finally, Kraid has enough and squishes him. Then Kraid goes back to his underground lair.

Shortly after the action, a mysterious figure arrives to check things out after the day's action. The figure spots pokepal148 and shoots at him further desecrating his corpse until they realize he's already dead. Spotting some footprints from the Space Pirates, the figure follows in the direction they headed off.

Announcement Post

The following players have died:


pokepal148 - Space Pirate (Killed by Kraid's Vote)
pokepal148 - Targeted By Dark Samus but he was already thrown in the Dead Thread from dying at Kraid's hand.


That is all. For a game, that has a potential of 3 deaths a cycle, we are really being generous in letting as many players as possible keep playing. How thoughtful.

Tonight is a Samus Aran hit night provided Samus Aran isn't voted out during the day. There are 16 players still alive. That means the majority vote for today will still require 9 votes. Voting Period / Day will be open a generous 48 hours and change closing at Midnight (12:00 AM) EST on Tuesday Mar. 31, 2020. Plan accordingly.

Once more, I'm available for questions and explanations as needed whether through pm here or on Discord. Note: Sometimes I see players with incorrect theories based on perhaps not quite reading the rules and roles correctly. I am not going to post any corrections to erroneous theories as I feel that is the host getting too involved and helping guide players. It is up to the players to double check their info or ask for clarification if needed.

While I just want to watch movies and play videogames in my spare time, I will try and make an effort to finally get some story going over the next couple days. Story - My Eternal Mafia Nemesis.

Back to the Magmoor Caverns everyone.

All notions of democracy in the galactic federation have been revealed to be a sham. I think we go with Mr Bungle's original plan to unionise the currently unorganised Space Pirates. We may've lost a comrade in pokepal today, but he was 100% acting like a gloating scab thinking he was untouchable for having the metroid. Comrade Kraid showed that pokepal is no bigger than anyone else and that we'll take that bread, or metroid, for ourselves.

NO but really based on his behaviour I figured Pokepal was 100% Dark Samus trying to do a double bluff. Looks like he was telling the truth, at least Kraid is holding the Metroid for us now.

Khushrenada can you tell us if the second kill on Pokepal was from Dark Samus or the Federation?

In a bit I will try and explain my posts against pokepal.   I will also see if I can figure some things out....

The results show that there was only 1 kill from either the Federation(Mafia) or Dark Samus yesterday. 

Also the fact that that Kraids removal of pokepal and the 2nd hit stacked up on each other must mean Kraids wires are being twisted together with someone who may be in contact with Dark Samus/ Federation members without them realizing it.

So that means that one of the two was inactive with their hit/kill.  I am willing to bet it was the Federation(Mafia) because of how long it took the Day 3 thread to be put up and if they were going to recon it would of been earlier and the  thread would have been up sooner.  So I am willing to bet that Dark Samus targeted pokepal but he was already dead from Kraid and thus not being able to gain pokepals item which was probably the Metroid.  It is either still on pokepal in the dead thread or it is in the hands of one of the remaining 16 players. Considering that there was no announcement of sudden death must mean that nor Samus or Dark Samus has it but is in the hands of the mafia or the many townies. 

With the reveal of pokepal being a townie that means that he wasn't Federation Trooper like I thought which means with the lack of a 3rd hit must mean that at the very least the Deleter(GodFather) wasn't around to send in a hit and we know that 2 players have not been around at least the first day.

 Plus the matter that the Day 3 thread took the full 12 hours to be put up means that Khushrenada had to wait for actions which were not coming. Khushrenada said that if actions were sent in early after the thread lock that he would put up the day thread earlier.  We know Rabicle and Lucario  did not post in the Day 1 thread and only posted once each in the Day 2 thread saying they were here.  Lucario and Rabicle let the thread stagnate as well as the rest of us and left the vote to the end in a scramble which resulted in a tie between Mr. Bungle and Steefosarus.    Lets try and not let that happen again.

I am going to for for Lucario for now.  Vote Lucario

If someone wants to vote with me or for Rabicle that should clear up some answers on inactivity.  You can also throw out some thoughts on other possible Bounty Hunters/ Federation members for a vote if you wish.

I propose the best idea is to create a tie between Rabicle and Lucario and have Kraid take one of them out or use their vote manipulator to break the tie before the thread is locked and then Maybe we will get lucky and Samus or the Mafia will go after the other.

I was thinking of this from Day 2:

There may be some vagueness about player survival at night. The only thing I'll say is that a person was targeted during the night but survived and leave it at that. Whether the player targeting the survivor is a Samus, Mafia leader or Vigilante will be a bit unknown but might be figured out if one of the other factions has a successful hit mentioned in the Announcement post.

However, on review, I see that the vagueness should only pertain to protection not a case where the target died from earlier in the day such as the vote. Therefore, I will update the Announcement post but will also mention it here that the failed pokepal148 hit was by Dark Samus.


As to your posting about a quicker Night Action period, it is true that I mentioned that I may launch the next day sooner if orders are in earlier than later. Yet, there's a caveat that it does not mean I will automatically due so. I may have the orders in early and still wait the full 12 hour period. Truthfully, I did want to wait until the 12 hours because I knew from my schedule that I would rather have the day end in 48 hours at the same time Day 3 launched because it would be more convenient for me at that time. Now, that doesn't mean some players couldn't have still waited until near the end of the Night Action period to send in their orders like is being theorized. But I knew from yesterday that I was going to wait the full 12 hour period to start Day 3 so basing a vote on when I launch a Day or end a Night Period is shaky ground and not the most ironclad deduction. I claim host privilege for deciding when that will happen.

...

From earlier posts, I don't think he can and that seems ok.

However, since mafia can take useful night actions without attempting a hit and Dark Samus can't, it seems pretty reasonable to make an assumption here. (Otherwise we're dealing with an inactive bounty hunter, which works just as well for the townies, so I'm ok with that too.)


...
Oof - and I see that Khushrenada just posted to confirm it was Dark Samus.

Well you are no fun.   I still stand by my post at least on the factor of inactivity the first two days for Lucario and Rabicle.

I normally vote early looking for a reaction... but want to think things over first this time.

However, after a stressful end to Day 2, I'm pretty satisfied with the results. The Metroid is hidden again, and if Kraid dies at the hands of a bounty hunter (which would result in a huge power-up) we'll know pretty much right away. I like those results.

That said, 2 of 2 losses so far have been townies. That trend has to stop.

Sorry. It never occurred to me that players would take my decision of when to end the Night action period as something for which to base a vote on other players. Now I'm thinking I may just have to always let the Night Period run the full 12 hours so as not to expose a player if they do take a long amount of time to send in an action.  :-X

Ya know what I am going to out myself because at this point with all the taunting and such I don't care if I win or not I am just going to make the rest of the game as a confusing mess for the rest for the whole lot of you as long as I am alive.  This week has been be very stressful not only with Covid-19, but the leak of the toilet that I am still dealing with in its 3rd day and then trying to wrap my head around this game and how I should be playing with this role. I don't need this today.   

Pokepal was right. I am Samus and I sent in my kill on thatguy early on before pokepal made his Metroid claim and then my kill was locked into thatguy a hour later so I couldn't change it. The pokepal made his claim and then thatguy made his post about voting for pokepal and yeah I thought I might have a chance at the metroid and yeah pokepal was right I didn't even think about the doctor saving someone in the vote until the tail end of the first day before the lock and I knew from then and there I knew I wasn't going to win.


Here is the list of my notes over the past few days.

Use it to destroy each other.


Mafia 85 Metroid Roles and Items list

BeautifulShy: Samus
Pokepal148: Claims to be the Metroid so a possible townie.  Possible Doctor/ Possible speed booster   Dead. Townie confirmed
Ejamer: Claims to be a space pirate(normal townie) Possible Mafia or Samus/ Dark Samus for voting for pokepal who claims to be the Metroid. Voted for pokepal but didn’t change their vote away as ShyGuy was voted out. If Shyguy ends up being a townie then  Ejamer, Insanolord, GK and Pokepal are the Mafia.
GK:  Mafia or a normal townie.
Lucario: Samus/Dark Samus or a passive Mafia goon. 
Luigi Dude: Possible Federation Trooper aka Speed Booster claims to be a space pirate(townie)
MASB: Possible Townie
Mop it up: Possible townie role or Mafia.  Has been talking with The Fleece a lot while hidden.
Mr: Bungle: Possible space pirate(townie)
Nickmitch: Possible townie
Insanolord: Possible Mafia or Samus/Dark Samus for voting for pokepal who claims to be the Metroid. Didn’t read the rules and roles Voted for Pokepal but didn’t change their vote away
RABicle:  Possible Federation Trooper (Speed Booster) claims to be a space pirate from avatar.
ShyGuy: Possible Mafia or Samus/Dark Samus for voting for pokepal who claims to be the Metroid
Steefosaurus: Townie Role, Samus/Dark Samus or Mafia
Stevey: Possible townie or a roled player. Mafia.  Can’t be Samus
Stratos: Possible townie
Thatguy: X-Parasite. townie  Dead.
The Fleece: Possible Mafia or a townie role

A lot of the above is based on their activity and how they are playing and the votes they did and the reasoning of their votes.

Dead
thatguy-X Parasite from Samus kill. Day 1.
Pokepal148- space pirate(Townie)






Current understanding of what roles one has.

Day 1.

Possible Samus/ Dark Samus- ShyGuy, Insanolord, ejamer, Lucario, Steefosaurus, stevey, Rabicle

Possible Mafia.  The Fleece, Steefosaurus, ShyGuy, Mop it up, Luigi Dude(Possible Speed Booster), Rabicle (possible Speed Booster), GK. Insanolord, Lucario, pokepal148( possible Speed Booster),

Possible Normal townies- pokepal148, Stratos,stevey, Nickmitch, Mr. Bungle, MASB, GK, ejamer. Thatguy, Rabicle,


Votes for Day 2. 

Steefosaurus or stevey. Fleece gets a one day pass for today.


Day 2 understanding of roles as I know them.

BeautifulShy- Townie.
Thatguy- X-parasite townie confirmed.
Pokepal148- Metroid or Speed Booster

Day 3 understanding of roles as I know them.

BeautifulShy-Townie
Thatguy- X- Parasite townie confirmed
Pokepal148- Townie confirmed.
Lucario likely Deleter for lack of activity with the hits. Not being around the first two days
Rabicle Dark Samus most likely.
Luigi Dude likely Federation Trooper.

Best of luck getting plumbing in hand. That kind of IRL stuff always sucks, and the timing right now is horrible with everything else going on.

A day 1 kill order probably would have your best chance to win if you hadn't submitted early. But it's hard to call it a mistake; who could've guessed that Pokepal would've done an full reveal like that? Guess we got really lucky you did submit early, because otherwise this could've been a short game for everyone.

Heh only 5 people voting for me. I'm surprised I am not voted out yet by majority. This is why the townies are not going to freaking win cuz you can't freaking organized in the mafia are too freaking scared to freaking show up or at least to appear to care for the game and be in the game.  Or perhaps I roped in several federation players. Thing is none of your asses will never know until it is too late.
I hope Dark Samus destroys all of you.

With B-Shy outing herself, the smart play is probably not voting her right away?  I know Samus is the killer role, but there's two of them, and Dark Samus can get pretty OP with one kill a night for the rest of the game PLUS the chance of getting something in the day vote.  The X-parasite is out, so Dark Samus will not reset (assuming there's only one).

I don't think it's a setup.  Only Samus and Dark Samus could win by completely ducking the day vote once.  The Federation would still need a traditional win while holding the Metroid.  That said, for the reason I said above, I don't think it's a good move.

Vote Lucario just to add to Mop's vote.  But I'm getting my suspicions.

Oh hi MASB it was so good of you to show up.  Not saving Steefosaurus yesterday and commenting to Steefosaurus right after the thread lock to save him really looked good for you!!  Surely voting me out will give you a shiny star giving you some cover.


Let's see who all have decided to vote me out or at least post and take an acknowledgement of the game and who hasn't as we have 8 votes on me.

Who has voted for me today?

Rabicle to taunt me and to hastly voted for me first after I make this claim on Day 3.  Day 1 not appearing at all until the end of the day and not even posting . Day 2 they commented that they didn't want to comment on the Day 1 thread because the day was pretty much over and that it was pointless.   No more comments after their vote today.

Steefosaurus. Voted for me right after Rabicle.  Using logic and reasoning to vote me out and has a chance to vote me out after they hastily changed their vote yesterday  to Luigi Dude to Mr. Bungle to create a tie 10 minutes before the end of the day ended and thus causing a rush to change votes.  I was going to unvote my vote on Steefosaurus before he changed the vote back to Mr. Bungle and I was also waiting on messages from TheFleece on who they wanted to vote for but I never got a response.  In my rush to change to someone else which I didnt get a chance to because Khushrenada locked the Day 2 thread before I could. So yeah saving yourself and creating a tie and letting things go to Kraid was a good idea but how did you know you would be saved and Pokepal was going to be voted out? Very curious.

GK very straightforward and just making votes.  Posted their post at 5:12 am but later added their vote for me around 6:22pm. A hour and 10 minutes later just to add a vote for me. Why did it take so long to add that vote?  Perhaps as a new player they were waiting on someone to tell him to vote for me. Voted for ShyGuy on Day 1 and no other comments.

Mr. Bungle.  I find their vote to be genuine and you are just going with the flow. Good on you to learning the ropes of this game and sticking in this game.

ejamer is probably going with the flow so I am not faulting them. Voted for me on Day 3, Mr. Bungle on day 2 twice. Said that they were going to vote for Luigi Dude but in Steefosaurus's haste that was not to be.
Voted for Stratos on Day 1 and then unvoted to Pokepal who we now know likely had the Metroid.

Mop it up I know has been not as active as she usually is but I guess I can't fault her with New Horizons to play.  Voted for Lucario alongside me. I appreciate the vote of confidence.  Not much activity other than roleplaying the past two days.

Luigi Dude only seems to show up in the past few games when either they are in the process of being voted out or there is a freebie voteout and hey they did the same thing to Pokepal on Day 1. What do you know.

Insanolord like usual blending in with the crowd and jumping on a bandwagon.  Which side are you on this time Insanolord?

MASB finally shows up and finally makes their first vote in the game. Congrats on that and I hope things go well for you. 

Nickmitch thank you for voting for Lucario.  I appreciate that I have a chance to post this long post without being hammered and voted out. 

Now who has posted today but no vote.  Lucario makes a comment and taunts folks about townies voting out townies.  Made only one other post and that was on Day 2. Seems to want to not participate that much.


Now these players are who haven't posted or voted today but have in days past.

ShyGuy has been active the past two days but as of today no comment or votes. What is the deal with that ShyGuy?  Might want to look at ShyGuy Mother Brain/ X-Ray Visor. 

Stevey hasn't posted since Day 1 and asking about the Metroid and if pokepal148 could give it to another player. Voted for Pokepal on one day after thatguy  made his post and went over the pros and cons of doing so.

Stratos has made the traditional Mop it up vote and then changed it to ShyGut most likely because it isn't unheard of pokepal to out themselves as a townie. I haven't really seen Stratos on the forums or anywhere really. Why is that?

Finally the Fleece. The person who I have been voting with since the 1st day when you vote as well. The one where on Day 1 I proposed to vote alongside me for Pokepal but didn't vote with me on Day 2 when I asked them to return the favor.   Why was that?  The one who said in a PM to me that Steefosaurus is good as gone even without their vote when there was only 5 votes. 2 on Steefosaurus, 1 on stevey and one on Mr. Bungle.   Then Steefosaurus changed their vote and created the scramble.  Both Steefosaurus and Mr. Bungle are still alive so there was a chance of them to live.  Where were you on Day 2?

With B-Shy outing herself, the smart play is probably not voting her right away?  I know Samus is the killer role, but there's two of them, and Dark Samus can get pretty OP with one kill a night for the rest of the game PLUS the chance of getting something in the day vote.  The X-parasite is out, so Dark Samus will not reset (assuming there's only one).
...

This is true and a good point.

It creates an odd situation though. Do we force BeautifulShy to live through a couple extra, unwanted days for the benefit of the townies? Normally IRL things take precedence. It does kind of throw the game off kilter, whichever choice is made.

Dark Samus doesn't have any items yet, and we'll be 3 days in. The Metroid is hidden again.  This would almost be like starting over with fewer people. The only people who have benefited from non-public information at this point are the mafia.

I'm letting my vote stand.  (Also, could Dark Samus kill Samus and take her accumulated items anyway? If so, then maybe voting Samus out before the night kill is our best action anyway.)

Here is why you should keep me around...  How many of you have a clue as to who could be Dark Samus? 

Sure you could use all the info I posted from my notes but who is to say that info could be trusted?  How do you know I don't have an actual list of who I suspect which is more accurate and that I am keeping away from you all?

Sure keeping me around will give you passive aggressive Alexis but at the same time without me this game is going to drag out for at least till Day 8 if suddenly you vote out Samus/ Dark Samus and then the 4 Mafia members but I doubt that would happen because I don't think you would figure out all the roles right away. Building upon my notes, sure Mother Brain could research some of those names but unless they have been stacking their investigations then it is going to take some time to investigate all those names and are you willing to risk Mother Brain making it that far before they become a rotted brain and taken out of the game. Then where will the townies be?

Plus voting me out is just doing a favor the the Federation. See in voting me out the Mafia do not have to lift a finger and they could gain more info and find more roles and items.   Not to mention that maybe Samus and or Dark Samus can find some federation members.     

One last thing to build upon the Dark Samus thread... What if you vote me out and then tomorrow Dark Samus finds the Metroid and the alarm rings stating that you have one day to find Dark Samus? Will you be able to find them at such a short notice? Gasp!!  I doubt it.  Dark Samus goes and makes Phazon Metroids to feasts on all of your brains and then that is the game.

What do you say?

Finally the Fleece. ...... Where were you on Day 2?


I wasn’t lying to you when I PM’d you about it. I was doing house stuff. I don’t get to chose when I have to follow through on my responsibilities. Not realizing what would happen in the result of a tie led me to further hesitation. Day 2 was a mess and I’m as surprised as anyone about the outcome. I don’t know where my vote is going, but not on you. At least not yet.

Well I appreciate your honesty.  It is refreshing. 

To be honest no one needs to vote for me anymore because unless there is a swing the other way then I am gone come the 31st.  I just want the remaining players to use this time to figure things out and reflect on why they are voting the way they are and maybe actually play the game. 

I appreciate you not voting for me in my dire time and reflect on things.

Since there's only one vote needed, I just want to say that I think the townies are making a brash decision here.  Makes sense for mafia/dark samus but the rest of us need to be thinking this through.

Oh hi GK pleasant day today huh..  As to your assertion of you voting with whoever voted first then why on Day 1 didn't you vote for Mop it up and not ShyGuy on the first day if that was your line of thinking going into this game?  I mean that was after pokepal said that they had the Metroid.  You would of surely had reason to vote for pokepal.  Were you just targeting someone who was rushing to vote for pokepal in one of Insanolord, ShyGuy or ejamer? 

 Please tell me why you are switching logic like that. Why are you not using your own logic for today and vote along side me for Lucario?

I'm not switching logic because I'm not using any. Also you make zero sense. Are you roleplaying a Tzeentch cultist today? Where do I say I dogpile on who is voted on first?

If anything I may keep my vote just because I prefer Slaanesh...

I am roleplaying as something called mind games today.  You might want to look it up because you are falling for them so much. 

And yeah all that stuff is going on still and I am still frustrated by it.  Players can decide if they want to vote me out or not.  I am not under the cult of  Slaanesh, which after a quick search shows that you prefer that which means you enjoy pleasure, excess and decadence. Lust, pride and self-indulgence.   All shows to me that you follow a cult and that is not something that townies should do.

Think for yourself. Make your own choices. That is what I am asking of the remaining players and not rush to a decision. Weigh the concequences of your choices. You are free to do what you wish just know going forward what could have been.

Serious question for folks.  Who would you of voted for had I not made that post today?  I am genuinely curious.

You were a top 3 on my vote list anyway. Some of the language in our messages was odd, which started to convince me you were a bounty hunter. I would've guessed Dark Samus though, and give you a bunch of credit for turning the Day 1 mistake into a reasonable cover story.


As for why I think we should vote out BeautifulShy, despite that making Dark Samus a greater threat to gain power-ups, it comes down to one point: it's better to remove a known threat than to risk losing another townie with an uncertain vote.

Keeping a bounty hunter who is ready to make a hit that night in the game doesn't benefit us in any way, and there are no contrite bounty hunters. Making "deals", as someone hinted at earlier, is a pretty terrible idea - we have no leverage at all to enforce how things will play out, and it's not in the bounty hunter's benefit to follow our suggestions. Trusting what a bounty hunter says on the way out is also fraught with peril; again, what incentive is there to tell the truth at that point?

Sure, it might "pressure" the mafia to do our dirty work instead; but they are just as likely to keep doing recon so that they can (a) find the Metroid and (b) figure out who the other bounty hunter is.  That's probably more effective for them than removing a known threat, since their real issue is identification and not action. The rationale there is very spotty... 

However, there isn't really any benefit to doing it quick versus trying to let more information leak out - unless someone is trying to delay the final majority vote because the quick timing would make it hard for their team to submit night actions? Townies have probably already lost that "opportunity" though.

People should think carefully about why different positions are being taken.

Here is why you should keep me around...  How many of you have a clue as to who could be Dark Samus? 
...
What do you say?

Even if you had access to more information, and/or were better able to piece things together, we can't trust you. With your cover blown, it's only a matter of time before you are eliminated.

...
It's a Samus hit day, and Samus doesn't have any items because the first kill was the x-parasite. The only way Dark Samus could benefit is if Samus made a kill tonight and got a power-up.  Now, if Samus chooses not to make a hit (because B-Shy would rather not play anyway or would be willing to make a deal on the way out) then Dark Samus may not waste the hit on Samus.  The only gain for Dark Samus is the extra hit, which is valuable, but at the very least, it'd buy us some time before Dark Samus got too many power-ups.

It's a Samus hit day, so removing now Samus means one extra person (maybe good, maybe not... but odds are it would be a townie) stays alive until tomorrow if Samus gets voted out first.

Splitting power-ups between two people might not be a bad idea, but voting out someone who you know is going against you is almost always a better idea.

Finally, I submit that it's really key for the mafia to find and eliminate Dark Samus quickly - as that person is the biggest threat to their success.  Edit: I am guessing they know that, and that's why we've seen multiple early recons as they try to gather as much info as possible; but it's hard to say how long that patience will last, even if it is the best long-term approach.

...

However, IF people have a really good idea of who else to vote for then maybe this is a good situation for the Omega Pirate action to come into play? I'm not clear about the timing rules for night actions (if we kill someone who was going to kill someone else, do both kills still go through or does one get cancelled?) so this could be a bad idea.

My assumption is that all night kills still happen, so we're probably better off voting. Also, there is the worst case scenario where Omega Pirate gets voted out and then we kind of screw ourselves... so, yeah.

Love is in the air...

Does anyone like music? Here is my head canon on musical tastes for each main character.

Samus enjoys hard rock and metal, a few things even veering into scream or death metal.

Rundas’s interests often overlap with Samus’s, but his taste is a little softer - he doesn’t like much metal and prefers soft rock. Sometimes he listens to rap or hip hop.

Ghor listens to classical music exclusively and detests anything more modern or technological.

Gandrayda enjoys smooth jazz and experimental music, often things that don’t keep a consistent beat or tone.

U-Mos enjoys trance and lo-fi music.

Adam doesn’t usually listen to music, but when he does, he listens to the trashiest, most generic pop music he can find. He hates it, but claims that it helps him zone out and focus on thinking when he has to work and plan. Once he listened to the same song 127 times in a row when he stayed up all night planning an attack on a space pirate base.

Anthony likes soul music with a focus on poetic lyrics.

Ridley won’t listen to anything except death metal and screamo.

Kraid will listen to and enjoy literally any type of music imaginable. Ridley once almost convinced him that the sound of a radiator working was a song, and Kraid said he liked it.

Dark Samus almost never had a chance to listen to music, but she enjoyed anything with an emphasis on a slow, loud backing beat and no lyrics. It reminds her of the metaphorical heartbeat of Phaaze and all phazon.

It is time for some Metroid Headcannon....

Because Gandrayda has the power to change her form whenever she wants, she consciously has to hold her cells in the shape of her natural form

Gangrayda can shapeshift into almost any material. A lover of pranks and challenges, Gandrayda made used of this ability on many occasions. She often used shape-shifting pranks to grab the attention of people she admired- probably on Samus on more than one occasion. She was the sort of person who’d pretend to be your coffee table for a week before springing out on you, more for the sake of testing how long she can remain as a coffee table than for the satisfaction of scaring you shitless (but that was always a bonus to giggle about later.)

Here is why you should keep me around...  How many of you have a clue as to who could be Dark Samus? 
...
What do you say?

Even if you had access to more information, and/or were better able to piece things together, we can't trust you. With your cover blown, it's only a matter of time before you are eliminated.

...
It's a Samus hit day, and Samus doesn't have any items because the first kill was the x-parasite. The only way Dark Samus could benefit is if Samus made a kill tonight and got a power-up.  Now, if Samus chooses not to make a hit (because B-Shy would rather not play anyway or would be willing to make a deal on the way out) then Dark Samus may not waste the hit on Samus.  The only gain for Dark Samus is the extra hit, which is valuable, but at the very least, it'd buy us some time before Dark Samus got too many power-ups.

It's a Samus hit day, so removing now Samus means one extra person (maybe good, maybe not... but odds are it would be a townie) stays alive until tomorrow if Samus gets voted out first.

Splitting power-ups between two people might not be a bad idea, but voting out someone who you know is going against you is almost always a better idea.

Finally, I submit that it's really key for the mafia to find and eliminate Dark Samus quickly - as that person is the biggest threat to their success.  Edit: I am guessing they know that, and that's why we've seen multiple early recons as they try to gather as much info as possible; but it's hard to say how long that patience will last, even if it is the best long-term approach.

...

However, IF people have a really good idea of who else to vote for then maybe this is a good situation for the Omega Pirate action to come into play? I'm not clear about the timing rules for night actions (if we kill someone who was going to kill someone else, do both kills still go through or does one get cancelled?) so this could be a bad idea.

My assumption is that all night kills still happen, so we're probably better off voting. Also, there is the worst case scenario where Omega Pirate gets voted out and then we kind of screw ourselves... so, yeah.

Yeah I can't be trusted because there really was going to be more discussion without me today.    :rolleyes:   Things would of went on like yesterday having no activity and limited votes and once again voting out a townie in a scramble unless old Mother Brain came through. But the question remains did they find anything else in their search and how they actually would of gotten that info to the thread without any protective measures?   

I am the biggest target because I made it that way and where do the townies/federation/ Bounty Hunters go after the main target is gone from the game?   

I'll leave the rest for Khushrenada to respond to.

If a player with night actions gets voted out in the day such as a Samus, Omega Pirate or Godfather then their hit action will not happen at night. Because they died in the day portion, I do not consider that player alive or active to participate at night.

Ahh you hammered me and was the last vote so I guess I am out of the game.  Good job on targeting little ol' me without having more discussion. I hope life treats you well.   

I highly doubt Ridley (doctor) will save me from the vote out but I guess we shall see come tomorrow.

If you do decide not to save me my advice to Ridley is this. Save someone not being voted for . So don't save me or Lucario. If you don't save Lucario and there is some sort of kill on him from Omega Pirate then he won't be able to make it to the next day and claim that the Federation went after him and act all townie like.  Instead if you don't save me protect Mother Brain so at the very least you will something to go on come tomorrow.

Thanks to K for confirming (and BS for prompting).
This was the logical assumption of timing between day/night actions.

However, the real question is what happens if there are two kills at night. For example, if Omega Pirate kills Samus on the same night that Samus kills Mother Brain, will Mother Brain still die or does killing Samus at the same time prevent her night order from being successful? I assume both kills go through.


The game will get harder from here. A recommendation to my fellow space pirates is that staying silent and/or abstaining from voting is NOT helpful. Federation members and bounty hunters love isolation, because it elps to give them anonymity and security.

While I was sleeping the Majority Vote Rule came to pass.

Vote Tally:

BeautifulShy - 9
Lucario - 3

That majority vote has now lasted for 90 minutes so this day has now ended. Night actions are due in 12 hours from this post.
