Day 7 - Man's least favorite friend

Postby Okaros » 09 Feb 2015, 18:22:08

It was clearly time for Rictus to go. He'd been making everyone a little nervous ever since he arrived, but when he started foaming at the mouth you decided he'd finally overstayed his welcome.

He looked up as you approached, a big goofy grin on his face. "Hey guys, what's... what are you doing?"

As you seized his arms and delivered him to the guards, his smile turned to a frown and he let out a mournful whine.

He shakes his head as he's escorted out. "Awww, man, it was just shaving cream. Can't you guys take a joke?"




Clearasday was sleeping peacefully and soundly when he was accidentally bludgeoned to death by several figures wrapped in blankets and wielding soup ladles. Not very subtle, though effective all the same. His linen-wrapped body was carefully removed in the morning, the guards looking nervously around them the whole time. Is it just your imagination, or are there a lot fewer of them than when this all started?

No penalties for either Blindsniper or San today.



WARNING: You are now at Lynch or Lose. Failure to kill a wolf today will result in a wolf victory.

Additional Warning: Parity will be checked at both the end *and* the beginning of the day.

This means that in the event that -12* or 35* more hypothetical vigilante shots cause us to reach wolf/human parity today and that remains true through the end of the day, the lynch will not happen and the wolves will win.

*Numbers chosen to indicate that this message would happen regardless of whether any vigilantes remain in play or not.

Well crappity crap. Okaros, do I understand you properly that if any vig shot fires and hits a human, humans lose?

This makes me extremely anxious. Any moment a wolf vig could wake up and win the game, and I have to pick a wolf correctly before that happens. But if there is no wolf vigilante, taking a shot would be stupid. But with three human vigilantes, what are the odds that there isn't even one wolf vigilante?

And obviously I would have moved my vote off with the Mawg claim but I only just got back from practice, which didn't have a break today so I didn't check in. Not that you'd believe me for that excuse, but if I was a wolf vigilante, you can bet the wolves would have won by my post here.

And why CAD, not me? It can only mean that shooting Visigoth is the wrong answer. Otherwise there'd be no reason not to get me out of the way to eliminate the risk.

No.

Hypothetical scenarios to hopefully explain this better:
-) If zero Vig shots fire, the game continues normally. You are at Lynch or Lose.
-) If more than zero Vig shots fire and hit only humans, the wolves win at EOD.
-) If more than zero Vig shots fire and hit only wolves, the game will continue normally.
-) If more than zero Vig shots fire and hit a mixture of wolves and humans, I will compare the number of living wolves and humans at EOD and determine if the wolves have reached parity. If they have, they will win and the lynch will not happen.

More than zero vig shots firing will not end the game immediately unless either:
a) all of the remaining wolves are dead
b) all the remaining humans are dead
or c) There is no longer any path to victory for the humans.

Thanks for the clarification. I already exited panic mode based on re-reading the post, but didn't get to the part where I posted about it yet. I'm still incentivized to shoot relatively early because the wolves must have left me alive for a reason, and if it looks like I'm not following their plan I might get shot.

Zark or Smirker. Any non-bullet input would be welcome!

All right. I realize that I'm likely throwing the game if I'm wrong. Sorry in advance.

I have known I have a blind spot this game, I was hoping I wouldn't have to make the choice about whether or not he was human in the end. But I'll take up sphenodont on his offer from yesterday because it fits best with why they left me alive.

Vigilante shot on Smirker, most likely for the game.

Admetus walks up to Smirker and unceremoniously empties the clip of his blaster into Smirker's chest. He immediately drops the blaster onto the corpse's chest and steps back several paces, empty hands raised in the air.

"Oh my goodness! Did you see how he decided to shoot himself, completely out of the blue and with no warning whatsoever? Clearly he couldn't take the stress anymore!"

The guards don't buy any of it, and give Admetus a thorough (and not particularly gentle) search. They find several more blasters hidden away in his costume and confiscate them all.

A shocked murmur runs through the remaining crowd once they pull off Smirker's replica Spaceball helmet, only to find a second, authentic helmet underneath! Looks like some Spaceballs are so hardcore they wear their real uniforms at all times.

"Hey, I've got a permit for those!" cries Admetus to little effect as the guards haul the corpse and the guns away. You breathe a collective sigh of relief, since that means Admetus probably won't be shooting anyone else.

Hooray, I'm a human after all! Now it's 2 wolves in 6 players, and I sure as heck will not vote Visigoth, even if it's wrong. Let's proceed, and remember like I was saying yesterday, a wolf vig could swing a close vote.

Quiet - we're rolling in 3.. 2..

Rita mouths the word one, and Phil's demeanor changes. They're filming out of order - they'll catch the local color later in the day - right now, it's all about the animal before them:

Well, it's Groundhog Day... again... and that must mean that we're up here at Gobbler's Knob waiting for the forecast from the world's most famous groundhog weatherman, Punxsutawney Phil, who's just about to tell us how much more winter we can expect.

Suddenly shot rings out, and Larry swings around looking for the source.

You would have to be insane to think Mawg and Vespa are in the game, but not Lone Starr. Insane.

You would also be contradicting yourself if you believed the humans had two vigs, the wolves had one (me), and I didn't simply end the game with the last vig.

I'm sorry, but that dog don't hunt.

So, I get the feeling that all "named roles" are (were?) vigilantes.

This was supposed to be a wedding... Do we have a minister present?

Is he packing?

Image
(thoughtfully)
"Excuse me, I'm trying to conduct a wedding here which has nothing to do with love. Please be quiet." (not a vote)

Phil! Phil Connors! I thought that was you!

Phil looks at him vaguely.

(at a loss)I'm sorry. Have we— uh—

My oh my! Phil Connors. Don't say you don't remember me, 'cause I sure as heckrfire remember you.

Well?


Phil stares, trying to remember.

Ned Ryerson? Needlenose Ned? Ned the Head. Come on, buddy. Case Western High?

Ned?

I see you clicking through that brain of yours. Click-click, click-click, click-click—
Bing! Ned Ryerson, did the whistling trick with my belly button in the talent show.
Bing! Ned Ryerson, got the shingles real bad senior year, almost didn't graduate.
Bing again! Ned Ryerson, went out with your sister Mary Pat a couple of times— 'til you told me not to anymore. Well?


(resigned)Ned Ryerson.

Bing!

So what're you doing with yourself, Ned?

Phil, I sell insurance.

(sorry he asked)No kidding.

Do you have life insurance, Phil?
'Cause if you do, I bet you could use more— who couldn't?—but I got a feeling you don't have any.
Am I right?

Looking over the vote colors, 7-zark-7 fits in the most wolfy spots. Better than Cam, I think. Blindsniper and San are possible, but Zark looks the wolfiest of them. I'm definitely interested in hearing from Visigoth, and I'm also a little worried with the current votes that whichever of San and Cam is human, we've got a split among the humans already.

San and Cam, any particular arguments for why you're picking each other?

And Blindsniper, you had a great end of last game as a human, I'd love to hear from you -- even though you do make a good wolf candidate.

Two kings voted, both on Admetus in a suprising show of unity before one of them rubbed two brain cells together. I think we've firmly established the light and dark side of the Schwartz at this point

Okay, this makes me sad

Admetus wrote:Looking over the vote colors, 7-zark-7 fits in the most wolfy spots


This also makes me sad. Just the other day, I knocked over a bank, & had a rather pleasant conversation with the two guards

You robbed a bank?

Technically, I robbed an armored car while they were loading. Six of one I suppose...

We just got here yesterday, when did this happen?

Yeah... I get that a lot. It was before I changed the tire on that old lady's car but after I caught the kid who falls out of the same tree every blessed day. Not once did he ever say thank you

So, it wasn't yesterday?

Please don't say yesterday - it implies we've got a tomorrow

Okaros wrote:You are still currently at lynch-or-lose.


Sigh... okay, let's talk about the remaining players... I'm most concerned about SAN:
Vote Analysis:
Day 1: Smirker : 1 : San
Day 2: That PJ : 1 : San
Day 3: meta4 : 1 : San
Day 4: sphenodont : 3 : San, Cam_Chase, Smirker
Day 5: Cam_Chase : 2 : San, Visigoth
Day 6: No vote

A great many bothans had to sit through life insurance proposals to bring us this data, & I'm concerned about San's hits on wolves as throwaways the first two days running, and his silence yesterday.

TL;Dr - San does a lot of contentless votes, but rarely does he hit wolves out of the gate. Given how Snake won last game, I'm suspicious.

I'm definitely willing to move my vote, especially as more people weigh in. But it's hard to find a more wolfy looking person in the vote tallies than you, Zark. I totally understand that random chance will make some people heroes and some villains among the uninformed humans. But lots of times, wolves gotta wolf.

Is it that time to lynch San for being San? And Admetus do you really expect San to provide a reason?

Myself I'm more interested in Blindsniper83 as my first wolf target. But since I don't want to split the vote too much I'm going to hold off voting on him for now. Of everyone he's my first likely wolf. Not quite sure who my next would be. Honestly Admetus is still sitting more on the wolf side than human side right now simply because he is still alive. Yes, he shot Smirker instead of sniping a human at EOD to ensure a wolf victory but it still doesn't sit right with me that we have 3 human Vig in the game and that he's lived through 2 mauls. The first I might be able to understand if the wolves weren't around for the reveal and could not switch enough votes to have a majority on him due to his late reveal, but I can't fathom a reason for leaving a Vig live through the next night. Of course no one has counterclaimed and having Lone Starr in the game makes sense due to the other characters that have been revealed but still can't shake the feeling that he's playing us.

Noted, Visigoth. Imagine how I feel, playing a claimed human who's still alive. I was literally in a panic when I started catching up, saw all the action that had happened, and misread the original Okaros special rules for today that I thought meant I had only as long as it took for a wolf to log in to solve the problem.

The only reasonable explanation for why I'm alive is that I was completely and utterly wrong, and the wolves thought I would be more likely to win the game for them than Clearasday. That theory tested out well when I shot the person that publicly I'd been most trusting of, and he flipped wolf. I'm even thinking at this point that the wolves may have no vigilante -- their vigilante might have been a contingency balance change that our Day 1 seer lynch prevented from happening, for example. But we can't assume that, and I intend to keep acting as if there's a wolf vig ready to shoot someone at the deadline to change a vote.

I would think the counterclaim would be made if it could be made, so even though Admetus is voting for me, I'm pretty convinced of his humanity.

That said, 3 Human vigilantes seems unbalanced if there's not a wolf Vig, but 5 wolves out of 20 players needs a balance too.

I find myself thinking about the two kings:

Skroob/Roland persist through the death of their owner and may continue to be used by that player for the rest of the game.


The rest of what I'm worried about dips into metagame areas, & needs some digging. Call it a hunch.

I almost feel I have to vote on San. Since I can kind of see 7-Zark-7 as possibly being a wolf but if I vote on him it leaves the tie breaker to Blindsniper83. And if he's a wolf and either San or 7-Zark-7 is a wolf he can just vote on the human and they win.

Just wanted to pop in here to say I'm still checking in and will probably consolidate my vote, as Zark doesn't look like he's winning this.

Why San over Cam, Visigoth? I could see Cam as almost as wolfy as Zark, though if both were wolves that would imply some surprises were left for us intentionally.


Blindsniper, would love your input.

Simply because San already has 2 votes and Cam_Chase only has 1. So voting on him again gives the possible wolf Blindsniper83 to pick the winner. They are both about equal in my book since there is very little there to go on with their votes more or less random.

Ugh. I mean, if the wolves get in early, that could hose the theory. But I guess it's customary for wolf votes to get slower at late game, because they want to see where the humans are willing to vote. I'll get in on San.

Sure. That's always a possibility and maybe Cam_Chase and 7-Zark-7 are the last wolves and they figured that by getting in early on one person it would encourage the others to vote on that person to keep from splitting the votes. Of course 7-Zark-7's vote wasn't early in order to try and encourage others to join in. I was really pretty split until that point but his vote did help give a target to consolidate on.

I wish I had a better feel for who might be the wolves but some of the results have made me question my hunches which is making me double and triple guess myself. I have no idea if going with San is the right move, but I guess I'd rather not split the votes and give anymore control of the vote to the wolves than needed. I guess we'll find out in ~30 minutes.

Also if you happen to be a wolf I'll stab you not once, not twice, but thrice times next game.

So this is how it ends?

It never ends. That's the problem. I know you won't believe me, but we could do anything we want today and it wouldn't matter one bit.

That can't be - everything ends

No - there are absolutely no consequences.

Complete and total freedom.

I mean, look - There is no way this winter is ever going to end as long as that groundhog keeps seeing his shadow everyday. I don't see any other way out. He's got to be stopped and I've got to stop him.


Who?

Lone Star - No other man would dare give me the rasberry... But before I kill him, there is something you should know about us,

What?

I am his father's brother's nephew's cousin's former room-mate.

Um, okay

You heard the lady - You've beaten my Dastardly Old Man, which means you're exceptionally strong. So, you could be trusting in your strength to save you. But, you've also bested Smirker, which means you must have studied. And in studying, you must have learned to trust vote analysis, and to put the bandwagon as far from yourself as possible.

Admetus wrote:Vote Analysis

I will. And I choose [stops suddenly and points at something behind Lone Star] what in the world can that be?

Admetus turns around, falling victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is "Never get involved in a Space war with Space Balls." But only slightly less well known is this: "Never turn your back on RP when death is on the line!"

Zark has the ring, and he has the Schwartz, but so does Admetus. Their blades intertwine like a thing alive:

Finally, Admetus lands a blow, causing Phil ^h^h^h^h Zark Helmet to stagger backwards. Admetus turns to leave, then looks down at the smoking hole in the center of his chest.

Vig Shot Admetus - killed by the Schwartz


Are you done yet?

Yeah, yeah I'm done. I am so ready for this day to be over
