To paraphrase what Mop it up said to me (when I was trying to contact ThePerm on Discord to see how sure he was about his detective info), when in doubt, go for Chaos.

Such sage advice from a seasoned Mafia veteran, and yet you put your trust in Order.


Do you still take Joja Credit? I have lots of points saved up, but their store no longer accepts them since they pivoted to Joja-Coins on the blockchain.

I'd like to have the record show that Pokepal and I both got played like fiddles and each of us invited separate moles into that Townie Alliance lol. Although I think most of it was my fault, so I at least want partial credit for inadvertently dooming the previous Haunted Town Mansion!!  >:( ;) :vedetta:

That said, there's no way all the previous non-Townies would be non-Townies again, right? ....Right?

Hang on a minute...

Think I'm mostly caught up, admittedly skimmed some of the more granular details, but I did catch Pokepal trying to make Lettuce Cats lol.

This is admittedly quite flimsy reasoning for joining a bandwagon, but this post from yesterday feels eerily prophetic in retrospect. Almost like the author had a hunch of what was coming?
(That said, I see no obvious link between Jamie/BeautifulShy's final message mentioning Blue, Green, Red, Red, and the items Stevey picked, but do get the impression BShy knew the jig was up.)

It does feel like collecting a lot of items somewhat correlates with being a non-townie faction: both BeautifulShy (Jamie) and Crimm (Mafia) collected a lot of them. This has me suspicious of a few players, again including Stevey, who collected at least 7 of them, and keeps voting for people who die the same night by the Mafia's hand.

So I Vote Stevey for now.

Sorry for being AWOL, looks like I missed a lot. Gotta save my hide so i vote Crimm for now. Open to other suggestions though.

Khush, for my first season i pick the anemone please.

Also finished Dread last week, and I think I gotta echo most people's sentiments: it's really good. Movement feels great, the bosses were challenging but rewarding to beat, the ending is hype, and it seems to offer plenty of replay options for speedrunners/completionists.

I hope Mercury Steam have another one of these in the tank in 3-5 years. I'd like to see them get more experimental - they obviously have the formula down at this point, so I'd like to see them go wild with it. The EMMI never felt very threatening since they are contained to little zones for example, and the game felt too respectful of its players to pull a Fusion and burst through a Save Room door.
You could do all sorts of things, like giving players misleading maps, or destroying their recharge stations. Dread pulls it punches a lot outside of the bosses, which is fine, but I think they could really increase the tension a lot if they wanted to without just further upping the difficulty.

Great to see the highly acclaimed Harvest Moon: One World getting a sequel already. In!

Liking Dread a lot so far, the movement feels really great. Controls to execute some of those moves can be a tad clumsy (we really out here pressing 3 buttons + aiming just to use the grapple beam?), and I think it gets a bit wordy in places to really hammer the objectives home.

It does repeat the Samus Returns thing where bosses get recycled (the brains, EMMIs), but I've also had a few good unique fights already.

Adam as a computer I'm fine with for now.

Congratulations to the Mafia players, and Crimm for getting 2nd place.

We got absolutely demolished, I don't remember seeing a wipe-out this bad in a whiiiiile. I'll take most of the blame for the loss too, since my "strategy" was just to reach to like half the field and weed out the moles from there. Which backfired spectacularly from the jump since I think I talked to Mop first lol.

I felt pretty good on Day 1 and 2, going in recklessly and reaching out to lots of players, and immediately finding Pokepal. Very quickly though the acceleration halted and I had a half-dozen separate side-conversations to juggle while swamped at work.

It's worth mentioning just how badly I got clowned on, check this out: the players I talked to most, besides Pokepal were... Mop It Up, Tophat, Bungle, and Crimm. The Townie Alliance was literally Oops, All Mafia.
It was clever to have Bungle pose as the Vigilante and pretend to distrust Mop, since they probably knew via TopHat how I distrusted Mop.

Looking forward to a rematch soon, maybe we'll do better with a Weenie Hut Jr. ruleset lol.

Question for the Mafia how soon did you know that lolmonade was the doctor and how did you come across that info?

I fear I probably told Bungle.

...LooooOOOOOOooooks like this'll be my new haunt from now on...

~ WhhhoooOOOOoooopssss, I meant to say boooOOOOooo, I'm a ghoooOOOooost ~

Don't love the unnecessary hostility earlier on, even if in context of a game on backstabbing. I like to think we're all here to have fun first, let's not sacrifice that over the 86th win in a long-running game.

On to the game:

1. To the Doctor: while I appreciate the attempts to save victims from the Townie vote, please do note it's our only method to speed up a literal process of elimination. Obviously your previous attempted save (MASB) turned out to be a good idea, but now we're still no closer to knowing Lolmonade's identity. People vote on players who they can't reliably clock as Townies. Saving them from the Vote denies us all the knowledge the Mafia already has - whether someone being Voted on is Mafia or not. Please only save someone from a vote if you are confident they are a townie.
We will know by end of day whether Pokepal is legit the Vote Changer (which also makes voting him out now useless), so if the vote changes to something Pokepal announces prior, the Doctor should contact him immediately the moment the Day ends.

2. To Pokepal - if you are the Vote Changer, make sure to spend all your stacked up Vote Changes today. This way, if the Killer takes you out for your Water Element Medal, they will not inherit all your stacked extra Votes.

3. Your secret Townie Role  identity is already exposed.
Let's be frank, things look pretty dire for us. There are 8 townies left (4 roles, 4 normies), versus 4 mafia, and an ever-stronger Killer.

The Killer has a nightly Detective, so knows at least 3 identities by now (2 Nights + 1 inherited from Insanolord). I assume they either found uninteresting targets and picked random other victims (all the Killer's targets have been normal townies since acquiring the power), or are purposely keeping someone they found alive. Again, I will repeat my theory: the Killer might know and/or be influencing the Doctor and wants to keep the Doc around until the Mafia threat is gone.

The Mafia meanwhile have only 9 targets left, and know at least 2 of them because of the presumed earlier Recon.
Collectively, between 2 and 5 secret identities may already be known by players with Killing powers. There's little point left in hiding at this point; and I know we've got some liars around, since there's more people claiming to be Normal Townies than we have left. We need to start moving as a unit and push players out.

4. Remember the Win Conditions
Neither the Mafia nor the Killer need all of us dead. They need the Dark Moon item. The Killers wins with it in 1 cycle, the Mafia need it and only to equal our numbers.

We can feasibly lose today: if we vote out a Townie, the Killer and Mafia take out two others, and the Vigilante gets it wrong too. But we've likely got at least 2 Days left, and successful hits now might buy us a third. Gamers rise up!!!1!

I'll start by going for a tie and forcing the Tiebreaker out of their shell: vote Stevey.

It's difficult to get a read on anything at all this game, sooooOOOOooo many contingencies.

Did the Killer send in their actions before the Day ended, or did they knoooOOOOooow MASB would be protected by the Doctor? If soooOOOOoooo I woooOOOOOoooouuuuld ask the Doctor to reconsider their soooOOOOooocial circle. Your friends may be a bad influence!

For now I'm sticking with my admittedly shakey argument from yesterday to vote Lolmonade again. If things go wroooOOOOooong I'll just blame the bandwagoooOOOoooonnnn!!!

Bummer, I like how MASB always puuuUUUuuuts in efforts to create a character.

MASB had the Ice Elemental Medal adding that to Luigi's arsenal.

Finally reading up on the ruuuUUUuuules and this stood out to meeeEEEeeeheeEEeeheeEEEeee

Quote from: Khushrenada
Ice Elemental Medal - With this ability, a killer can nullify someone's role for the day. The player who is targeted will be informed that they've been "frozen" and cannot perform their action that day. However, this player can still vote in the day thread. It is only their role ability that has been frozen. If the current Godfather is frozen then they cannot send out the squad on a recon mission nor make a hit.


VooOOoote LooOOoolmonaaaaade for cryptically going for an inactive player instead of an active threat. Shyguy can't be LuuuuUUUUuuuiiiiiigi/Mafia Leader since he hasn't been here since Day oooOOOOoooneee.

Yesterday, I brought up the subject of what to do about improperly edited vote changes. I proposed a solution about it but saw absolutely no response on it. So, here it is again.

Like most of the poll voters, this is a gooOOood idea in my booOOook. A new vote clearly signals the old one is vooOOooid. StrikthrooOOoouuughs, edits, and/or UnVotes help and remain appreciated!

NoooOOOOooo VoooOOOOOoooote

No Vote

because why not? I skimmed the rules. Is there are reason to change it?

Perhaps the oooOOOOoooOOOoonly reasoooOOOOooon woooOOOOooould be to speed up the amooOOOOooount of players whoooOOOOOoooo get eliminated?

SooooOOOOooo many roooOOOOoooolllzzz

oooOOOOooOOOOOoooo it's me

a spoooOOOOoooOOOookyyyy ghost!!!

definitely not looooOOOOOooooiiiigiiiii

There are now two games left I still want to get a real physical copy of: Daikatana (GBC) and Pokemon Emerald (GBA). I whiffed on the former months ago which I'm kicking myself for now.

Questions for everyone who has played Pokemon Emerald: Is it worth it? Are the changes over Ruby/Sapphire substantial? The game regularly sells for over $100. I feel like it's eventually going to drop.

It's one of the weaker games in the series in my opinion. Never played Ruby/Sapphire, so can't really compare. Also, they used batteries to regulate tides & day/night cycles which you'd have to replace. It's not bad, but $100 is ludicrous.

All hail Mark Khusherberg

Wow, congrats to everyone, that's a huge pile beaten in one month!
Got nothing to contribute myself, all I wound up doing this month is downloading the WarioWare demo and not playing it.

I remember being interested in this when I heard about it way back on the Wii U, but never pulled the trigger until it hit $1.99 on Switch. Unlike most match-3 puzzlers, this one isn't action-based, with instead having the goal of clearing the play field of all blocks; it's a nice change of pace. The story mode is surprising lengthy, I wonder if too much, though it does introduce a new obstacle or gameplay wrinkle in each world to shake things up and try to keep them fresh. The story itself is simple and mostly nonsensical, but was sometimes worth a laugh just from being incredibly stupid. I noticed that the Wii U version had online play, but the Switch one doesn't; seems like an odd exclusion, but I doubt I would have tried it anyway.
Scored: 8/10

This is a pretty good game, yeah! I never finished it because it went on way too long like you say. Personally I found the writing deeply grating too, but the core gameplay is very solid. At a price like that I'd recommend it, it was like $25 on Wii U back in the day.

Whew, some of y'all are flying through these!
I've basically made zero progress in anything yet, with just a few days left in the month. Where did August go?!

Yeah, not a lot of encouraging news lately.  :-\ Looks like that medical vessel couldn't travel due to hurricanes.
There's been several articles (Science Magazine, NY Times, BBC) on the Covid situation in Israel lately, and it's not very reassuring. They were comparatively early to roll out mass vaccinations, with much of the population being fully vaccinated, and over 10% even having had a third booster shot.

But recently the Delta variant has been surging there regardless. Maybe the situation is very different so I shouldn't be comparing the two, but it's worrying. I'm so exhausted by all this.

Hope y'all are staying safe.
