Mafia 88: Hey Pikmin, Four..m A Mafia! Day 3.
« on: February 05, 2022, 01:34:51 AM »
Excerpt from the President’s Business Log:

My mistress Lucy keeps calling me at work. I keep telling her that we need to keep things hush hush but part of me really loves when she calls and talking such naughty things with each other so I just can't bring myself to be too stern with her about it. She keeps asking if we can go to the theatre and some fancy restaurants or money for some beautiful gowns to wear for when we go out. I want to impress her so but I've had to keep putting it off due to my financial issues. Fortunately, things went pretty well at my meeting with Ken the Killer. In a couple days, I should be able to deliver the weapons to his clients and earn a hefty paycheck for helping him out with his smuggling. If all goes well, he says he may recommend me to some other people he knows who are always looking for reliable sources to help smuggle some "medicine" for them. Maybe this shipping company is finally going to be worth the headache it's caused me for so many years.

Why is it that when things are going well in one area of life that they seem to be falling apart in another? Things are starting to look profitable around here while Olimar is reporting setbacks with the vacation home project. Apparently some creatures started digging in some holes and burrows around part of the vacation home zone. When he went to remove them with his pikmin, he ended up suffering a bunch of pikmin casualties because the creatures had some sort of defense he wasn't aware of which they used to wipe out the red pikmin he had with him. He thinks this setback in his labor force is going to slow down his progress for awhile. He seems kind of distraught about it but not as distraught as I'll be if he doesn't get that home built.

Speaking of which, I guess I should get home to the misses. *Sigh* She's making her awful tuna bean casserole for dinner. Maybe if I drink enough alcohol beforehand I won't be able to taste much of it....

Previous Day’s Results

Dead


BeautifulShy - Red Pikmin (Killed by Damage Effect)


No one was eliminated from the Day’s Vote. Although the Mafia tried to kill, it was only the Mafia that ended up losing a member as their target had a damage effect different from fire thus taking down BeautifulShy.

Current Master Onion Total: 1

Voting Time: For Day 3, the Day Thread will be open for a maximum of almost 47 hours. Voting will end and the thread will close at 12:30 AM PM EST Feb. 7 aka 10:30 PM PST Feb. 6. However, the Day could end earlier if a Majority Vote is reached.

Majority Vote: There are currently 16 players still alive in this game meaning 9 votes would be needed to achieve a Majority Vote.

It's not like there's anything going on that your gonna miss out on by playing through the weekend so your welcome for having something to occupy your time now.  8)

She sent me a PM right before the game was done to vote for Mop it up.  I went for no vote since I didn't want to cause a tie which voting for Mop it up would have done at that time, since I was about to go to work and couldn't change the vote before the day was done.

At the very least I can say Mop it up is not mafia since I don't see why a mafia member would try to get me to vote out one of their own at this point when there's so many players, or cause a tie when there's no point so early on as well.

I'm going to vote Perm mostly for throwing out a no vote following the vote against B Shy. Maybe he knew something then? Just trying to get the ball rolling.

You would think that Olimar would know that red Pikmin are like Gremlins, you don't get them wet, electrocute them, or feed them after midnight. Also, the days sure go by fast on this planet.

If everyone is telling the truth that exonerates Mop it up and likely Luigi Dude and Nickmitch.

This message from day 2 implies that each of these people are townies, unless it's an elaborate rouse.

"Only 3 people contacted me. Bungle5, Tophatant123 and pokepal148.   So for now Bungle and Tophatant123 are on my most likely not going to vote for them unless they give me a reason to."

I'm going to throw out another vote for an inactive for now.

That makes no sense at all. I plan to no-vote until about day 5. Until then you're more likely to vote out a townie than a mafia. It's the mathematically most logical choice for townies.

Wow BShy played that excellently, did not expect her to be Mafia. I should read up why the Mafia hit backfired, interesting twist.

She also sent me 2 PMs:
1. About what I would do if I had Bomb Rocks. I haven't read all the rules yet but told her I'd throw it at an inactive player to blow them up.

2. How MopItUp had both her and me on her kill list and asking to join a vote against Mop. I saw that but was running late and didn't have time to read everything so I just voted for Luigi Dude since I'd seen his post and he was doing a No Vote.

Would be curious to hear if she sent both PMs to everyone? It sounds like it, but her 2nd one was personalized.

If everyone is telling the truth that exonerates Mop it up and likely Luigi Dude and Nickmitch.

"Only 3 people contacted me. Bungle5, Tophatant123 and pokepal148.   So for now Bungle and Tophatant123 are on my most likely not going to vote for them unless they give me a reason to."

Considering the source of those names being publicly singled out, I'm not immediately convinced. If I was BShy I'd name 3 people and include one fellow Mafia member to bury their trail amongst (confirmed) Townies like Pokepal.
Pokepal was already dead before that post was made, so he's easy to claim as having been in PM contact.
TopHat is yourself, so let's ask a point blank question: did you indeed contact Bshy?
@Bungle, same question.

I'm going to vote Perm mostly for throwing out a no vote following the vote against B Shy. Maybe he knew something then? Just trying to get the ball rolling.

That makes no sense at all. I plan to no-vote until about day 5. Until then you're more likely to vote out a townie than a mafia. It's the mathematically most logical choice for townies.

You're not wrong, but people hiding behind No Votes are much harder to read. Are they a conservative Townie who know nothing? A Mafia member attempting to establish a seemingly innocent Voting pattern?

Voting for individual players helps everyone establish patterns, and there's the off chance we either get lucky or spot Mafia behavior in the votes. Not foolproof, and it's true it tends to result in accelerated Townie losses, but we need something to stand on.

I don't want to instinctively vote for you, Perm, because I'm still biased against you for playing me like a fiddle last game. But most Mafia games feel like they reach their endgame between Days 4-6, so planning to No Vote all the way has me suspicious of you. I don't wanna vote for active players just yet, but as it stands I plan to change my vote below to you later in the day.

Vote Crimm to see if they respond. Planning to change to ThePerm unless convinced otherwise.

Breadbug would like to know if anyone is going to eat that red pikmin? No one? Okay...

**Breadbug begins dragging corpse back to its Breadbug-Burrow**

Also Breadbug is wondering why folks are voting Crimm. If this Crimm is inactive, maybe he is dead. Breadbug is happy to help dispose of the body as a service to the community. Hopefully Crimm's body does not wake up until after I've tucked him away in my Breadbug-Burrow.

A point blank question deserves a point blank response.

1. I contacted BShy initially on the first day to say hello, as they put out the call.

2. Then later I got the PM about the bombs and I responded to that by saying that I wouldn't pass the bomb to anyone, I would join a bandwagon against the most voted person to dispose of the bomb that way.

I didn't however receive the PM about voting for Mop it up.

It's possible the BShy said those names as a trick, it's definitely more flimsy than the other evidence. Psychologically though I don't think you would want to associate yourself with anyone else in the mafia. If for example Bungle needed to rally votes to save BShy on later days, then that would look suspicious.

Given that the bomber is still in play, it might be prudent to spread out our votes to hedge our bets.

After BShy posted that she wanted others to reach out to her, I connected with her on Discord and we chatted a bit. Then I received the same private message on the forums with the bomb rocks question (1. above). I responded and she replied. That was the last I heard from her. I did not get the second message about Mop it Up that others claim to have received.
