Day 1: Nassau

Postby Omega » 05 Feb 2018, 21:26:08

Departing: Miami, FL
Next Stop: Nassau, Bahamas

The initial departure delay did seem odd though, what was this, Air Canada? It didn't help that the ship looked woefully understaffed. Nevertheless, the ship finally set sail. Iron Clad Burrito waved from land as the ship pulled out of port, only to be chased off the pier by a flock of seagulls. Surely, once at sea, all would be well.

Looking around, there is quite a collection of people on this cruise. From the mid-westerners escaping the February snows, to the Floridian retirees for whom this is a merely a quarterly event. The ship was massive, four pools, a casino, luxury shops, and a 24 hours pizza bar. If it weren't for them nickel and diming you on the soda ($13.99 a day?! Really?) this would be perfect.

And now that we’re in international waters, alcohol is tax free. Cheers!

After a day of sailing, you’ve still not reached Nassau, that seems odd as Nassau is less than 200 miles east from Miami. Not to mention, you still haven’t received your complimentary daquiri. The more you look around at the “crew” and the amenities, the more it seems wrong. Carrot Top is the headliner tonight at the Ship’s largest club! Just as the evidence really began to add up in your head, the klaxon sounded, and the captain came over the PA to deliver a message. Before he could get a word out, the PA cut to static. Something is wrong on this ship.


Discuss amongst yourselves the problems a foot and identify one player to bring to the Bridge for judgment.
Day 1 will end at 17:00 PST on Wednesday February 7. (Yes, this is an exceedingly long Day 1, but I advertised that we’d begin on Tuesday, and I want to ensure everyone has time to log in, pick up PMs, and point fingers.)

This. Anyone who did not immediately note "Carrot Top" as the correct answer is clearly a sociopath. Or can we just nudge him overboard and save ourselves some time? Where's a vigilante when we need one?

Two items of note:
A) Six singletons with 12 players is bad, mmmkay?

B) Anyone else note the wording on the role PMS?

That could be taken two ways: Although you are a member of the crew, you're not really a wolf; As long as you remain a member of the crew, you're not really a wolf. In an Omega game, that makes me nervous.

as the last non-singleton to add a singleton vote. The Ryvvn<>dfer votes make me itch a bit as well. Consolidate a bit, folks.

I think that's just Omega trying to cover any potential arguments later down the road. It's a "passengers vs mutineers" game, so someone is sure to point out "Hey, those guys are crew, not passengers! OMG HIDDEN FACTION!".

I don’t think there’s any ambiguity in Omega’s words. Read that sentence as “You may be a member of the crew, but for parity, you count as a passenger.”

I agree that the Ryvvn / dfer thing looks a bit odd. I also want to point out that calling out this oddity and then voting on someone else for a completely handwavy reason is also odd.

It's not necessarily hand-wavy; last person to vote for a singleton, who themselves is not going to create a singleton. Ozymandias used to do it all the time; with a fresh Day 1 (not worried about ~last-game type concerns), it's nice to be able to take that approach.
