Round 1: The First Post

Postby necklessone » 20 Apr 2014, 18:12:54

"26 pints, please."

26. This may have gotten out hand. And the look you receive from the bartender at the First Post is less than hospitable as he begins to pour. Still, the Golden Mile! Glory awaits in just twelve pints!

Just one small snag. The bed and breakfast didn't have enough rooms and this group is way too big to crash on couches. Plus some of you have to work in London tomorrow.

This is bad. This means...

DESIGNATED DRIVER

You have until you leave this pub to choose the poor fool who will not be drinking tonight.

Round 1 will end at 9:00pm Eastern.

Look, I did NOT come all this way to NOT drink.

MaxFrost though, looks like he is drinking water.

Ah-HA! I made it in time for the First Post. Starting the Golden Mile right after Easter with the family, nice.

Designated driver? I thought we were walking this. Did someone bring a bus or something?

If we have to pick, DastardlyOldMan was expecting to make an early exit. Make him do it, at least then he'll get to hang out with us (even if it is just watching).

It's hard enough to trust Okaros while sober, we won't stand a chance against his predictably inevitable treacherous backstabbery once we're all a few pints deep!

Q: Is this functionally any different from any other lynch vote, just flavored differently? Because I dig it, just wanted to make sure we're not inadvertently voting for sheriff or something.

Assuming the standard, I vote DastardlyOldMan. He wants to be the driver. We all know it! Or he does unless he gets some shots in him. Don't give him shots, please, or you'll know why he's called 'dastardly'.

Yes, this is the lynch vote. I'll be playing with what you're voting for all game to try and keep some sort of logical flow to the plot, but I will clearly call out any votes that aren't traditional lynch votes.

You eggin' fools, I don't even have a permit. Them blighted buggers took it away from me back when the fence gate got left open and one of my cows got out with the tractor. Drunk driving? You'd a gotten sloshed too if a cow smashed up your best tractor! I've been using Okaros' license since then.

Gog thinks 26 pints is too little. What is the rest of the party going to drink? Gog not see Dimli, either. We're going to need more ale if he shows up.

Who best could talk themselves out of a ticket ?
Ryvvn for DD!

So normally we want a bunch of ties on day 1. But with only 2 networkers around, I don't think we're going to have much of a chance of finding one. And with people flipping every couple of days, prior vote history won't be worth much either. So no ties today!
Charming, to the last.

That's an interesting suggestion. Also, it's an everyone's special game, so vote manipulations are almost certainly in. Are the vote manipulation powers with us or against us? Probably on the side of the pubbies to start, just based on the odds, but that's only my guess. I'm not sure I'd say "no ties," but ties would probably hand more control to some players.

I think that the key this early for the remote chance to grab a network guy this early would be to keep the votes close and along more wagons than normal.

In most games where there are 4-5 wolves having 3-5 wagons on day 1 has a better chance of picking a wolf albeit still a small chance. With 2 network wolves, those chances are further reduced. Maybe the closest approach to fish a wolf ( but still with a low possibility) is to have several small tied bandwagons to keep them on edge. It's the opposite of a normal wolf game, but this being a conversion game with fewer starting members changes things a bit. The fear of losing 1 member out of two so early can result into bad decisions.

This makes sense to me. If the number of wolves is smaller then we need smaller bandwagons. Put many people in danger and gauge the reactions.

In addition, numerous bandwagons with few votes may help us identify the vote manipulation powers. It's worth a shot. I am curious, if someone with a power is converted, do they retain that power?

Hellheart for now.

five potato, six potato, seven potato more. My mother and your mother were out hanging clothes. My mother punched your mother right in the nose. What color was the blood? Red. R-E-D spells red and you are out. sphenodont is it. Plus I swear I saw him wimping out and drinking a rock shandy so he might as well be the DD tonight.

Hmm, Okaros and Ryvvn both made it pretty far last game.

Assuming Antipater's unbolded vote counts because his intention was clear, let's go with Okaros to tie things up.
