Day 2: RaveBomb

Postby Omega » 12 Jul 2018, 21:01:25

RaveBomb. 7-Zark-7. RaveBomb. 7-Zark-7.

Aldax kept muttering the two names to himself. While Iron Clad Burrito noticed it and largely dismissed it as the incoherent rantings of a mad hatter, Aldax had now attracted the attention of the whole village. Everyone gathered around to see whether or not Aldax would come back to his senses or if this would be the day the town lost its second best hatter. Why a town of this size needed multiple hat shops (let alone haberdasheries!) is a question best left unasked.

RaveBomb. 7-Zark-7. RaveBomb. 7-Zark-7.

Meanwhile, stdio had been studying the blade. In fact, he loudly proclaimed to any that would listen that he’d studied it for quite some time, though no one could be quite sure. In a tragic bit of irony while wearing one of Aldax’s slightly oversized fedoras, stdio struck DastardlyOldMan. While most people would ordinarily try and hide or otherwise cover up the tragic accident, stdio called attention to himself, constantly reminding the townsfolk that while they were eating turnips, he’d been studying the blade.

RaveBomb. 7-Zark-7. RaveBomb. 7-Zark-7.

Finally, Aldax’s eyes opened wide and he loudly exclaimed RaveBomb!

The townsfolk quickly wrapped RaveBomb in some heavy chains and cast him into the lake. Tossing in stdio’s blade for good measure. Neither returned to the surface.

RaveBomb, Villager

Could you clarify if Aldax’s vote was decided by RNG or Aldax himself (assumedly via PM)?

I didn't clarify the vote via PM because I thought that would be a no-no, but I voted for Ravebomb. The Zark vote was a mistake I didn't realize I had made until I saw the locked thread, sorry for that

In the interest of full disclosure, I actually ran it both ways. Aldax as the 3rd vote on RaveBomb, killed RaveBomb and RNG also killed RaveBomb when put in the 4 way tie.

RaveBomb was just really meant to die on Day 1.

I think that was the correct decision. The vote for Rave was never properly retracted.

It may be far too early to take a serious look at this, but I'm almost inclined to start digging with those who voted Ravebomb. Again. The poor guy, ya know? It's like, 2 of the last 3 games where he went down quickly.

I voted before the player list was even posted. I guess I could’ve checked the signup thread, but I was lazy. I wasn’t going to change my vote when I’m in contention for a leading wagon.

I’d look at the one who put the nail in the coffin.

That's a fair point, but I only broke the tie because at that point pushing a 4th,5th player to a tie was just too much.

Keep going back and forth on if the vampires got lucky and converted stdio getting them that vig shot or if it was as he stated in his post. If they did get lucky then was his shot done to try and save the senior vampire or just random. Of course then I wonder about if they hadn't converted them to start with then would they go for him afterwards or not since it would be removing a possible confirmed human from the game. Or did they leave him alone as a trap for us to kill him for them. So kind of leaning towards voting on him just to clear up the issue but then worry that it's just what they'd want us to do. Just seems like trying to figure that one out is a full on rabbit hole situation and I'm left wondering why I'm talking with a smoking caterpillar.

there. Primarily the end of Day 1 post about being a kingmaker when Aldax had likely already broken the tie. Or were you assuming that his votes wouldn't count or just the 7-Zark-7 one (since it was last)? Though at that point we all pretty much had kingmaker power since one changed vote would have put someone into the lead and to some degree it was a little odd you didn't move to save yourself regardless of the outcome of the Aldax vote decision.

I get the attention of Aldax with the tie breaker and the odd double vote. Maybe he got a vote on the public board mixed in with a vote on the vampires board leading to that double vote situation. I think that would be a first in the mispost chronicles of this game.

Hang on, I'm just wrapping up my youtube video on how TLJ literally ruined western civilization ... ok, now where was I? Oh, yes ...

If I had been converted, I'd have waited for some decisive moment, like if it came down to a Lynch or Lose situation and then I'd shoot and win the game. Or if not that dramatic of a situation, then at least something more interesting then a totally random shot on day 1. Avoiding the possibility of a vampire controlled vig on a lynch or lose day was one of my drivers for getting rid of the shot. Plus, consider it from the vampires standpoint: a converted vig is a extremely valuable asset and for the vampires to use that shot on DOM on Day 1 would be a stupid waste. Do you think the vampires are that stupid? I don't.

I don't like when people make a bunch of vague accusations, and then switch topics and vote on someone else. It feels like a suspicious attempt to muddy the waters, so I'm switching to RETRACTED the rickest rick retracts his vote for visigoth

Now, if you excuse me, mom's making tendies and I need to make sure she doesn't overcook them this time.

So when do we kill our confirmed human in stdio? Or do we assume the Master Vampire will expect us to kill him and go after another squishier target?

Aldax seems like too easy a target, and too much of a lightning rod to make a good conversion option.

I think if we skip over the obvious targets, I would probably arrive at

Not being Omega, I was in no way going to assume what he was going to do, so I completely ignored the double vote. In any case, I could have moved my vote and worst-case, created a tie that removed heat from me and no one could blame me for it. So unless you're positing that I'm a vampire dumb enough to risk myself (either 50 or 100 percent of the vampire population) because I didn't move to save myself, I don't know what to tell you,

Got a little jolt of panic when I realized I'd left this game for so long without checking in. Fortunately it didn't leave without me.

I often don't agree with the reflex lynching of Day 1 notables, generally. Aldax, especially, isn't really the type to make waves as a baddie.

Until we have something a little more interesting to talk about, I suppose I'm fine with removing a "usual suspect."

The GM says this:


Due to my inability to process the game on Tuesday. I'm going to extend this day for one more 24 set until 17:00 PDT on Monday July 16th.

Unfortunately, I'll be in flight during that time, but will be able to process when I get to the hotel tomorrow night. Then, Day 3 will be a 48 hour day, ending Wednesday July 18th. (And I'll finally be home.)

Copying this over from the rules thread:
Omega wrote:
Ryvvn wrote:Omega, I’m a little unclear on the conversion rules: initially rolled vamp converts night zero and the conversion happens “during day 1”

When during day 1, at the start so the game immediately starts with two vamps, or literally sometime during?

If successful, it would have occurred approximately half way through the day.

Ryvvn wrote:Then following that, each attempted conversion won’t trigger for a full cycle? So head vamp converts night 2, is decided successful, target x becomes a vamp on/during night 3? If so, and the conversion target is eliminated by town vote beforehand, do they reveal as human or vamp/converted?


Night 1: Vampiric Senior identifies conversion Target
Night 2: Target is converted (if the conversion was successful); Vampiric Senior identifies a new target.

If the target were to be lynched on Day 2, they would be revealed as converted (if the conversion was successful).


Stdio took their “humanizing” shot almost a full 24 hours after day 1 began, so well after Omega’s approximate half-a-day which would by default put that first conversion at the 12 hours after game start. Stdio absolutely could have been vamp at time of shot and the shot lends zero credibility at the time it was taken.

Also, we’ve had this discussion before, it is more wolfy than human to “let the chips fall where they may” when in a tied lead than to forcibly save yourself; 75% chance of survival without heat always sounds great to a wolf (I’ve taken that tactic many times myself).

Right now both of them are super suspicious to me, but neither of them have votes currently. We are going to wonder about stdio all game if we don’t just deal with the question now.

Happily, if others agree that pursuing your reveal takes precedence over stdio. Even if you were to reveal human, it does not make the noted strategy any less wolfy; specifically calling out your own willingness to not save yourself feels telling to me.

As originally stated, I could vote for either you or stdio, but neither of you had any votes when I posted that, so I decided to start with stdio. That tsk only makes sense if I was a wolf and you were not, but that’s a lot of effort for me to not only try to swing a bunch of momentum your way, but to start it by placing a lone vote on stdio first.
