Eternal Mafia Finale: The Darkness Comes
« on: September 16, 2010, 01:59:50 PM »
The atmosphere was tense. Nerves were on end. Sanity was slipping out of their midst. The heroes had fought long and hard on their journey and many had been lost along the way. The Darkness crept ever closer but the few remaining held on resolute. Suspicions were high as it was plain that there were spies among them. But who was a difficult puzzle to solve.

Maxi, custodian to the Tome of Eternal Darkness, had gleaned many vital clues from within it's bindings of flesh and bone. The others knew they could count on him and here, at their final hour, they turned to him yet again. For they were at an impasse. Vudu and Plugabugz were the current leads to their traitor and the vote was not going through. They turned to Maxi to break this critical vote. Maxi looked from one to the other, turned his head as if pondering the issue, then slowly uttered two syllables: That. Guy.

Sundoulos' gut knotted. He had been sure Maxi would side against Plugabugz. After all they had discussed last night what they were going to do today at the vote. Something wasn't quite right... as he stared at Maxi he noticed a swift and subtle movement on his eyes. He had a second pair of eyelids flicking open and closed! His eyes were not human. "You've been playing us all for fools." He gasped. "How long have you infected him?Mop it up, we should flee."

"I have infected him long enough to ensure victory for my mighty lord," It hissed.

"Mop it up, quickly," entreated Sundoulos, "Help me cast a magickal spell of escape, these are all enemies save for you and me now. Perhaps we can live to fight another day." Hearing no sound from behind him where Mop it up had stood he turned with great fear in his heart. There lay Mop it up, neck clearly broken. Behind her body stood a laughing Insanolord, revealed now as the Corrupt One himself. "YOU!" Sundoulos cried.

He turned again and found Apdue as well, transforming into his true form of the Vampire. He turned again to the controlled Maxi and plead to him, "Surely there is some sense f your will in there, if you can overcome the Bonethief within you me may still have a chance."

"There is no Maxi. All that remains is his HIDE!" And on the word 'hide' the bonethief burst forth, destroying Maxi.

Sundoulous realized that he was alone in the world. A chill came over him. He was surrounded. Giving in to despair, he looked to the heavens and let of a final prayer. The Darkness came. The Darkness covered. The Darkness consumed. The Darkness was complete.

~~What happened~~

Mop it up, townie hit
Maxi, the Librarian, Infected

All who remains of the Gathering of Light is Sundoulous

He was overwhelmed by
Lindsanolord, the Godfather
Apdude the Vampire
and Plugabugs the Bonethief

I knew this was going to happen once the defender was gone.

I had a few plans to get the the bonethief out of me but when I asked Stratos about some things I was pretty much told that it wouldn't work.

A few things that annoyed me. thatguy why the heck did you post that stevey was a townie in the main thread. After you did that I thought you were putting that info out there so that the mafia could use it. Stratos next time you host I think you should have a co-host to answer questions and lock the thread when you are not around.

I suppose I should take some credit that I named the remaining Mafia members other than Plugabugz on day 2.

Did the Vampire shut down the killer.I know Toruresu was the defender and he did protect me 2 nights in a row.I wonder if the Vampire stopped the kills.

Well I guess I will continue playing since thatguy was a townie.I told him if he was Mafia well I wouldn't trust my judgement anymore I would only be involved as a host.

I probably should just trust my judgement more. I should have searched apdude and vudu back on day 1 instead of going with Khushrenada's thoughts.
Just a bundle of cuteness and fierceness.

Mafia totally deserved to win this game.  Townies played like ****.

After I determined I was a goner on day 4, I considered telling everyone my role and promising to kill a mafia member that night.  It would have forced the mafia to kill me instead of stevey, therefore buying the townies an extra day.  But considering the townies sucked it up so badly I didn't think it was right to try to rob the mafia of a win.

Kudos everyone.

apdude, I gotta ask--did you figure out my role on day 2 or did you just get lucky when you blocked my night action?  For what it's worth, I tried to kill Mop it up on day 2 and apdude on day 3.
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Yeah I blocked him 2 days in a row (days 2 and 3).  Just a guess on the first day (day 2).  Was going to block thatguy but insanolord told me to pick again... good call on that one.  Day 3 was just for varification.
 
I don't really know how you picked me day one but it was a good hunch that could have turned things dramatically, though Vudu would have been killing more then.  Thanks everyone on the pointers, hope to play the otherside next time to see how that goes, probably totally different.

We blocked vudu the two nights prior to his death, so we pretty much knew he was the killer. We would have killed him the next night, but you guys were nice enough to take care of him for us.

Maxi, the fact that you named us that early in the game should be something you regret, not something to be proud of, since you never followed up on it. I'm pretty sure no one voted for me the entire game.

Thatguy naming stevey as a townie was pretty irrelevant, since I would have killed him that night anyway. Taking out Toruresu was a great stroke of luck, because at that point my strategy was taking out people Maxi never mentioned in the thread.

Thanks Mop it up I really needed to hear that at this point in time.

You didn't mention who you thought was mafia.Next time we play YOU lead the townies since you think so highly of your cognitive abilities!

How did you expect me to mention anything when you list me as Mafia or the killer? You wouldn't listen to me, and Toruresu didn't trust me either. No one was going to follow anything I said. Not only that, but this game's end day time was terrible for me. It was near the end of my work day, so there was no way I could be around during the second half of every day, which, this game especially, was when most of the action happened. Otherwise, I would have tried to stop that Nickmitch vote, and pushed for Vudu then, among other things.

Look, I know how these townie alliances work, I've been in them, and mistakenly voted out townies. It happens. It can be difficult to trust anyone not in your little circle, so I just tried to not become a target. I'm not blaming anyone.

After seeing the result of day 1, I knew the Mafia were going to win. It was clear they were organized and the townies weren't. Of course, it still takes skill to capitalize on these situations, so congratulations on the wins guys.

I don't recall being in a game with Insanolord before, so if I were, it must have been an early one. That, along with four new players, made it pretty difficult to figure these people out.

I'm also kind of wondering how balanced this game was. It seemed like the Mafia had a lot of power. I guess it's just a matter of figuring out the roles quickly.

It all comes down to luck.  The mafia blocking my action on day 2 was was a slim chance--less than 10% if you just look at the numbers.  But they got lucky, figured out who I was and nullified me from that point on.  If I was allowed to kill throughout the duration of the game would have been pretty different.

Certain roles can unbalnce the game a bit more than others--namely the killer and the bomb (which wasn't in this game).  The game is designed with the assumption that these players will most likely kill X number of players (3, 4, whatever that number might be).  If they kill more or less than that number the game's balance gets thrown out of whack pretty severely.

That's a good point. I s'pose if the Mafia had lost two members early on, it would have been an uphill battle for them. Just having those members alive at the end gave them their abilities, and the vote-changing one won it for them. And really, the biggest strength of the Mafia is their numbers, so not finding them out is what unleashes their power. I guess that's why it can sometimes make them seem overpowered, but they're really not.

I guess there's no way to balance a game where every outcome has an equal chance of winning, so the only thing to do is make sure one role doesn't have too many possible outcomes that'd make it a cakewalk.

Actually, we initially thought thatguy was the killer, mostly because he told us he was the killer. He also kept us from killing Maxi very early in the game. We almost had an alliance based on that, which is why we didn't block him, and we picked vudu to block because of his high profile and relative silence. From that, we lucked into figuring out he was the killer. Luckily, our only contact with thatguy was through jrlibrarian, so he didn't know who the rest of us were. He eventually figured it out, but by then it was too late to do anything about it.

At first I thought the bonethief would be a really big factor, but we couldn't use it until we found the defender.  During that time the townies could have found the bonethief and nullified it.  And if we lost the bone thief instead of the bodyguard and it was 4 on 3 we would have lost.  So in that way it seemed pretty well ballenced.

I wanted to vote out Insanolord on day 1.  No, Khush said.  I'll vouch for him.  It took three or four days to find out it was just Khush saying that to put things together, and that he hadn't been investigated.

I'm also kind of wondering how balanced this game was. It seemed like the Mafia had a lot of power. I guess it's just a matter of figuring out the roles quickly.

Is that why the mafia never contacted me back after I messaged jrlibrarian?  Did you all know I had messaged him?  I put all my eggs into "Pretend I'm the killer and hope the mafia decides to make a deal."

And, vudu, I definitely would have spared your life, since I knew by the numbers, the townies would need the killer to stay alive.  I really thought you were in the mafia.  I wasn't looking for the killer so early, given the tight numbers we had.

I'd say numbers affected balance more than anything.  In five days, the townies got 2/5, getting the killer and a mafia member.  Had the game started with one less mafia member, by the same 2/5 ratio, it would've been a townie victory.

The reason, for those who noticed, like the mafia, I consistently named prominent townie names, lied in my failed strategy:  I tried to say I was the killer.  While I didn't know Toruresu was the doctor, I thought he had been investigated by Maxi, since he voted for jrlibrarian first.  In the day before he was hit, the only townie player I called attention to was, like I said Toruresu.  The same was the case with stevey.  I said stevey in the open, by the way, because #1, the mafia knew who the townies were, and #2, had I not, he would've been voted out easily enough.

Any way, my strategy bombed, but I do wonder if it would've worked had vudu not been stopped by the vampire.  Did jrlibrarian let anyone know I claimed to be the killer?

Really, though, it was a balanced game.  A little bit of luck with the order and selection of hits went a long way.  In my book, though, if the townies can figure out the mafia and have a greater number of players voting than the mafia, it might show some imbalance.  The only role with too much power was the bone thief, solely because we lost our counter to his role, Khush, so early, and there were too few people in the game.  Had Khush stayed in a little longer or had there been more players, it would've been a non-factor.

Also, I said we got 2/5, but if you were to factor out the bone thief, we would have had successfully gotten 5/8, should everyone vote, since we had figured out the mafia.  That isn't bad at all, for the townie side.  Slow starts are typical, especially in games where roles get killed off early.

I have been thinking about the game more and I have a few questions for everybody. Had I went after someone else other than jrlibrarian would you of followed me. Maybe going after apdude instead. Reason I would of took this path is because after jrlibrarian I would have no info.

If I had contacted you vudu on Day 2 and said you were the killer what would you have done?

Yeah, jrlibrarian told us about his conversations with you. That strategy would have worked a lot better if I hadn't been mafia. I knew not to trust you, and gave the order not to tell you any more than we had to.

Looking back, I think one of our keys to victory, which is always key for the mafia, was that we played very well as a team. We coordinated our powers well, and communicated well. Also, two newbies, a European, and a non-top-tier veteran is a pretty good combo for flying under the radar.

Kudos to the mafia.  They played very well as a team, and they were able to maximize the breaks that came their way.   Apdude, especially, did a great job of convincing me that he was a townie.   Despite Maxi voting for apdude the first day, I didn't really suspect him until day III...after that vote, it was too late. 

As for the rest of the people, I just couldn't really decide who was least trustworthy... by the time I did finally decided to listen to thatguy, again, the game was essentially over.  I'm feeling a bit naive at the moment.  Here's hoping I learn a little from this game; hopefully I'll play better next time.

Still, it was fun.  GG.

Congrats to Sundoulos for being the only townie to live until the end of the game! ;)

It was really fun to watch this game fron behind the scenes. I almost wish I could see all PMs too just for my own entertainment. I'm glad the game turned out as balanced as it did. I scrapped a few extra tweaks near the end and I think that really paid off.

I only wish I had been less distracted by real life. A lot of crap happened in my life this week including very nearly losing my gf. But it seems the game still played out quite well.

Just curious on this, was there a reason or was it more of a random selection?

In my book, though, if the townies can figure out the mafia and have a greater number of players voting than the mafia, it might show some imbalance.  The only role with too much power was the bone thief, solely because we lost our counter to his role, Khush, so early, and there were too few people in the game.
Yeah, that's kind of what I'm saying. There's something unsettling about that.

The only reason is because you're a veteran player who's slightly less high profile than I am (at least in my mind).  After a few days veteran players who are still alive start to come under scrutiny.  After killing Khush on day one, I didn't want to take out anyone that I consider "higher-profile" than myself (e.g. thatguy) because I wanted to be able say "sure, i'm still alive, but so's so-and-so!".  Nothing personal about it--purely business.  ;)

I get the feeling I wasn't playing right, but I didn't have an inclination on who to ask until after I already got popped. Hopefully it works out better next time, and congrats to the mafia.

Yeah, you were a victim of my "randomly kill people Maxi isn't mentioning" strategy. I don't like to kill newbies, but that strategy also resulted in taking out Toruresu, so I have no regrets.

I'd like to thank the other members of the mafia for dealing with my life during this game. I'm sorry for that, and it didn't work out as well as it could, but at least it brought Maxi out into the open. ;)

I have been thinking about the game more and I have a few questions for everybody. Had I went after someone else other than jrlibrarian would you of followed me. Maybe going after apdude instead. Reason I would of took this path is because after jrlibrarian I would have no info.

If I had contacted you vudu on Day 2 and said you were the killer what would you have done?

I was actually going to propse this to you since you knew he was the bodyguard and had no offensive ability to try going after someone else so we could save jrlibrarian for at least another day.  I would have tried to direct you to go for someone else you named earlier like thatguy, or Mop it Up but figured it was too risky since you also had insanolord in your list.

I wanted to vote out Insanolord on day 1.  No, Khush said.  I'll vouch for him.  It took three or four days to find out it was just Khush saying that to put things together, and that he hadn't been investigated.

Whoops. On day 1, the first pm I got was this from Insanolord:

I've never been very good at Mafia, but you always seem to be nice to me with it, so I guess I'm turning to you again. You know this game better than anyone, so I'd like to work with you. Interested?

I had no reason to doubt his sincerity and I can not recall the last time, if any, a mafia member, let alone the godfather was so bold as to reach out to me at the start of the game and offer to work with me. Even Maxi contacted me later in the game after investigating me. So, I really thought he was legit. I thought so right up to the last day when I began to get a sinking feeling that maybe I shouldn't have been telling people Insanolord can be trusted.

As for my time in the game, I didn't really get a chance to do much. I was right to target a new player but I choose the wrong one this time. When Maxi contacted me, he had two investigations left. I had him investigate jrlibrarian and I'm happy for that since as far as I'm concerned that got rid of the biggest obstacle to the townies when it came to the mafia. You can argue the bonethief and vampire were pretty important also but with the Greater Guardian gone, there would be no fear of day votes wasted. But for some reason, Maxi also investigated Sundoulos. And I'm still not sure why he did it since Sundoulos was the majority vote at the time and looked like he was going to get voted out and then his identity would be revealed. He also investigated stevey, another of my recommendations.

So, at the end of day 1, Maxi gives me the results of his findings. At the moment, Thatguy is leading the vote 4 - 3 over Sundoulos and Mop it up is at 2 votes. I don't know how Thatguy ended up leading the vote but I figure I'll take a chance and believe Thatguy is a townie as he has told me. Even if he is using me, I'm sure I owe him from a couple games so this my chance to return the favor. I can't vote out Sundoulos since I know he is an innocent townie so therefore I change a Thatguy vote to Mop it up and create a 3 way tie. Just not sure what the bonethief will do. Turns out, he does nothing. Fine. Tomorrow, we strike the mafia and take out jrlibrarian and we have a four strong townie alliance at least of myself, Maxi, Stevey and Sundoulos. I then have a second tier reserve of Thatguy and Insanolord hopefully on my side but not vindicated. Moreover, with this info, we should be able to get the Doctor to come forward to us as well and maybe even throw out a feeler to the detective.

Instead, Vudu shoots my plan down the drain and Insanolord makes a wise hit getting rid of the detective and nothing seems to materalize beyond getting rid of jrlibrarian. Moreover, I've told Maxi and Thatguy that Insanolord can be trusted. That's the game. I still think I was right to at least bugger up the first day vote and save two townies.
Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.

Let me clear something up Khushrenada as far as Sundolous goes. I never searched Sundolous. How could I?I only had two searches left.
jrlibrarian and stevey were my searches.

Earlier Sundolous said he didn't get a role PM and like just before the voting ended on day one I sent in my searches for stevey and jr.I also asked Stratos if he sent out role PMs to townies.Stratos said he didn't send any out to townies so I took Sundolous comment as being truthful.He would have had to contact Stratos and asked him the same question to get the right answer. Considering that Stratos wasn't on to answer PMs that much I took what Sundolous as truth.
Just a bundle of cuteness and fierceness.

Here's hoping I learn a little from this game; hopefully I'll play better next time.
Does this mean we'll have you in the next one?
For better or for worse, I plan to give it a go again.

It's too bad that all the Day I stuff made me a little too hesitant to trust or listen to thatguy.   Since I was a townie, I had thought he was mafia joining in on a push to get rid of a townie once Khush singled me out.  Oh, well...

Here are some basic rules of Mafia:
-Actions speak louder than words.
-Never trust Thatguy.
-Vudu is always Mafia or killer.
-Stratos must be stopped.

The only reason is because you're a veteran player who's slightly less high profile than I am (at least in my mind).  After a few days veteran players who are still alive start to come under scrutiny.
Yeah, it makes sense, thanks for telling me. I guess I should take it as a compliment that you think I'm a skilled player in any capacity.

Since it was requested, we are having a vote in this thread for Game MVP. Nominate and vote for who you think deserves recognition in this game.

I'll start by voting for Insanolord because he was really on fire the whole game. He tricked the townies into trusting him and held the act up until the end of the game and led the mafia to a pretty strong victory.

Voting will last for about a week. I'll probably shut it off by next Tuesday unless it seems everyone has voted before then.

It's been a while since I've played a game with Insanolord, so I don't recall anything about him. I probably should have taken a closer look at him, as anything suspicious I just passed off as him being rusty. Big mistake.

-Tell Khushrenada your role right away so things can get organized fast.
-If you are the doctor, protect Khushrenada right away! Don't wait for facts first!
The first one is extremely lame and cheapens the game, but the second one is definitely true. To add to it: If Khushrenada isn't killed on Day 1, he's Mafia.

-Always vote Mop it up first ;)
You a copycat, ain't ya

-Vote for Maxi on the first day, it freaks him out ;)
Voting Maxi on any day freaks him out, even when there are seven votes for another player.

You tell 'em Maxi. There are plenty of games where I live to the end and am just a townie. Just are there are plenty of games where I am mafia and don't make it to the end. It's just easier for people to believe in the myth.
