Round 4: The Famous Cock

Postby necklessone » 23 Apr 2014, 18:20:32

Before I begin, I have to say that the GM of this game does not endorse playing drunken Dart Catch. Do not try this at home. The characters in this game are trained professionals.

So, as the game heated up the group stopped at the village green to play out the finals. The final player to be eliminated pre-finals clutched his bleeding hand as he watched the epic stupidity playing out. The wound wasn’t serious, but he was out of commission for at the very least the next pub.

And just like that, it was over. Becky Salt, the famous redhead of “Marmalade Sandwich” fame misjudged the dart ever so slighly and it lodged, quivering, in the side of her head. Not a fatal injury by any means, but enough to shake up Ms. Salt and convince her to pursue a less pointy evening.

rekard - Severely poked
Becky Salt
You are one part of the "marmalade sandwich" and you are nothing without your fellow members: REDACTED and REDACTED. When you vote on the same target as REDACTED, REDACTED. When you vote on the same target as REDACTED, REDACTED.


Meta4 - Second, rewarded
Smirker - Third, power-blocked for today

With the game out of the way, it’s on to the Famous Cock. You crowd around the outdoor tables, order a round for 24 and many orders of chips with curry. The setting sun lowers the temperature and it is a glorious evening to be alive. Three pubs in and all is right with the world.

It’s so peaceful that one of you has decided they’re not going to be doing the rest of the mile. They’ll just stay at the Cock and relax.

As you were all caught up in the dart game, you almost didn't realize that someone had chosen to act as referee. Vote manipulation was cancelled yesterday. Any vote manipulation powers that were activated yesterday did not count (and do not have to cooldown before use).

This makes sense to me. I think Admetus is doomed to get heat eventually, though, so I'm settling on rekard and Iron Clad Burrito.

Hah! I'm not sure what to think about this. Why would I be doomed more than anyone else?

I'm pretty sure you added this to try to get me to reply if I were lying about my availability, but in case you weren't the answer is obvious enough to phrase as a question: if you're the Network, would you rather use your first conversion on someone like ICB/rekard/Ozy/etc, or would you rather use it on Blindsniper/San/Meta4/etc?

Well, the question was more properly aimed at Furin, who suggested the concept. My thought is that there's more than one dimension to consider, and "analytical" isn't the first priority I'd have as Network.


So how about that end of Day 4? That's some insane movement up to the buzzer. I kind of get the impression a Networker might have been in trouble. It can't all be related to that, there aren't enough Networkers to create that much commotion, but still. It bears a closer look.

The first issue is separating a vote made because two players are connected or associated in some way, and a vote made because the player casting the vote didn't think that X player should be lynched on Day 3. And that's not even the biggest problem here.

It's probably reasonable to assume that there's one or two powers that'll let players PM or form mini-alliances or whatever, so even if you pick out two associated players you're still taking a shot in the dark as to whether they're part of the Network. Even players that aren't in direct contact could try to protect each other - rekard's reveal suggests that both REDACTED and REDACTED would have voted to protect him.

Well my last-minute vote was an effort to save rekard as I was fairly certain he was Human. I voted for Meta4 because he had the most votes at the time. I was more certain of rekard's humanity than Meta4's. My vote for simple_simon was just a throwaway. I was fairly certain it was going to come down to rekard/Meta4 for the lynch/reward so I didn't worry about who I picked for my second vote.

Gog think wording on this scroll is odd. First off, Dimli not redhead, so Gog have no idea how he can be "marmalade". The other thing is that it appears that Dimli plus the top bread would have one power, while Dimli and the bottom would be another. Otherwise, Gog think description would be different. Maybe voting with one lead to a vote boost while voting with another lead to a vote decrease?

Late yesterday:

Drink up. Let's Boo-Boo.

'Boo-Boo'? What is that?

You remember "Let's Boo-Boo". You know, from Mr. Shephard's classroom, it said on the wall "Exit, Pursued by a Bear", you know, from that Shakespeare play?

A Winter's Tale.

Yeah. What was it called?

A Winter's Tale.

That's it. And if we needed to make a quick getaway, we'd say: "Exit, Pursued by a Bear". And then, it was: "Exit, Pursued by Yogi Bear". And then, it was just: "Let's Yogi and Boo-Boo". And then: "Let's Boo-Boo".

So you're saying we should go?

Yeah. Shitty, here. Isn't it?

.
...
....
.....

Now. Now... Now, What I didn't know was that the rest of you lot hadn't moved on yet. Pity that. But I see why you didn't miss me

We can't have that. After all, there is only one Gary King.

It's that man again! Despite his meandering maneuverability, his strategical susceptibility, his infantile indefatigability, and his tendency towards tactical trability, he still remains.

What? Who the fuck was that? The omniscient voice of the Famous Cock? Or was that my doppleganger retracted from Ravebomb?

I knew I had read this somewhere, but it took me a while to find it again because it was in the rules thread. Silly me.

Subject: Rules & Questions

necklessone wrote:Double Votes
If you have a power that activates when you vote on the same target as another player, that power will only activate on a double vote day if you and that other player voted for the same two targets.



So that means one of rekard's partners was probably dferrantino, since they're together on both votes. And I'd already suspected dferrantino would have made a good conversion target. It might be possible that the Network didn't want to lose rekard, because it would weaken one of their members. FurinMirado would be a good candidate for "Network wolf defending rekard." But at this point the logic train is a bit strained. I'm about three assumptions deep. Rekard would not approve.

I'll put off the vote for now, and come back to it when I have more time.

There were a bunch of odd votes near EOD that I think are worth examining ...

Here's was the Day 3 tally with 20 minutes left:

Iron Clad Burrito : 4 : FurinMirado, RaveBomb, Hellheart, twdog
Meta4 : 4 : rekard, Ozymandias, dferr, Rictus
rekard : 4 : Hellheart, That PJ, Rictus, spheno
Smirker : 4 : San, rekard, dferr, spheno
Simple_Simon : 3 : That PJ, Ozymandias, RaveBomb
That PJ : 3 : Stigmata, Simple_Simon, Meta4
Admetus : 2 : FurinMirado, CAD
dferrantino : 2 : Admetus, That PJ, Visigoth
Okaros : 2 : Meta4, Stigmata, Simple_Simon
Stigmata : 2 : San, Antipater
Visigoth : 2 : CAD, Maxfrost
7-zark-7 : 1 : Visigoth
Blindsniper83 : 1 : Admetus
Clearasday: 1 : Maxfrost
Hellheart: 1 : twdog
Ozymandias : 1 : Simple_Simon
San : 1 : Antipater

Yet to Vote: 5 : 7-zark-7, Blindsniper83, Iron Clad Burrito, Okaros, Smirker

(A) SMIRKER, who was tied for the lynch lead, then put vote #5 on ICB (fine) and Maxfrost-- huh? Why throw away a vote on Maxfrost? Was he trying for second? That seems pretty risky.

(B) BLINDSNIPER puts the 4th vote on ThatPJ and 3rd vote on Okaros. Not necessarily suspicious, but it does threaten the Twins enough that it would be reasonable to expect Okaros to follow That PJ onto rekard and Simon. Was that Blindsniper's true intent?

(C) SIMPLE_SIMON announces that he retracted his votes from That PJ and me, which makes sense if he's trying to minimize the threat to the Twins so that Okaros has less reason to vote for him. But then later with 5 minutes left Simon puts the third vote on Visigoth and the first vote on Antipater. That seemed odd to me, because it might lead to retaliation. (Why not just vote for the two non-Twin players already voting for him?) Then with 2 minutes left, and no longer in apparent danger, he switched one of his votes from Visigoth to Furin-- who subsequently voted for him.

This whole sequence seems very strange, though it may be more power-activation-related than Network-related.

(D) Going back to 6 minutes left, after Simon's retraction OKAROS puts the 5th vote on rekard and the 5th vote on Meta4. Though since That PJ was already voting for rekard, presumably Okaros thought he was pushing rekard into the lead with 6 total votes (since the GM said bonuses would be split). Interestingly, Okaros could have put 5 total votes on Simon (who That PJ was already voting for) instead of Meta4, but chose not to.

(E) SMIRKER then agrees to ICB's offer, but only switches his off ICB to put vote #6 on rekard, leaving his useless singleton vote on Maxfrost unchanged. Why didn't Smirker want to vote for Meta4?

(F) IRON CLAD BURRITO puts vote #7 on rekard and #6 on Meta4, both of which make sense. But something about his negotiations with Smirker (which he waited almost 10 minutes after Smirker's vote to start) seemed a bit off to me-- almost as though they were staging it so that ICB wouldn't look as bad for putting a killing vote on rekard?

(G) FURNIMIRADO's late vote for Meta4 ostensibly tied him with rekard, but don't forget the expected extra vote from Okaros+That PJ. So Furin may have actually just been trying to secure the second-place reward for Meta4 while also getting Human cred if Meta4 is later revealed as a Networker. Just something to keep in mind.

Anyway, like I said, there was a lot of odd behavior in those last 20 minutes ...

I don't think dferrantino and rekard are silly enough to vote together on day two. I mean, that could be the point. But I don't think so.

Admetus does seem to be eager to grasp for reasons to stick people to the dead guy though.

Antipater, you should make a post in the Village Pub somewhere that lets us know where you're from.

I was certain you were a puppet account before I checked the Arstechnica thread on a whim.

Ozymandias wrote:There were a bunch of odd votes near EOD that I think are worth examining ...

Here's was the Day 3 tally with 20 minutes left:

Iron Clad Burrito : 4 : FurinMirado, RaveBomb, Hellheart, twdog
Meta4 : 4 : rekard, Ozymandias, dferr, Rictus
rekard : 4 : Hellheart, That PJ, Rictus, spheno
Smirker : 4 : San, rekard, dferr, spheno
Simple_Simon : 3 : That PJ, Ozymandias, RaveBomb
That PJ : 3 : Stigmata, Simple_Simon, Meta4
Admetus : 2 : FurinMirado, CAD
dferrantino : 2 : Admetus, That PJ, Visigoth
Okaros : 2 : Meta4, Stigmata, Simple_Simon
Stigmata : 2 : San, Antipater
Visigoth : 2 : CAD, Maxfrost
7-zark-7 : 1 : Visigoth
Blindsniper83 : 1 : Admetus
Clearasday: 1 : Maxfrost
Hellheart: 1 : twdog
Ozymandias : 1 : Simple_Simon
San : 1 : Antipater

Yet to Vote: 5 : 7-zark-7, Blindsniper83, Iron Clad Burrito, Okaros, Smirker

(A) SMIRKER, who was tied for the lynch lead, then put vote #5 on ICB (fine) and Maxfrost-- huh? Why throw away a vote on Maxfrost? Was he trying for second? That seems pretty risky.

(B) BLINDSNIPER puts the 4th vote on ThatPJ and 3rd vote on Okaros. Not necessarily suspicious, but it does threaten the Twins enough that it would be reasonable to expect Okaros to follow That PJ onto rekard and Simon. Was that Blindsniper's true intent?

(C) SIMPLE_SIMON announces that he retracted his votes from That PJ and me, which makes sense if he's trying to minimize the threat to the Twins so that Okaros has less reason to vote for him. But then later with 5 minutes left Simon puts the third vote on Visigoth and the first vote on Antipater. That seemed odd to me, because it might lead to retaliation. (Why not just vote for the two non-Twin players already voting for him?) Then with 2 minutes left, and no longer in apparent danger, he switched one of his votes from Visigoth to Furin-- who subsequently voted for him.

This whole sequence seems very strange, though it may be more power-activation-related than Network-related.

(D) Going back to 6 minutes left, after Simon's retraction OKAROS puts the 5th vote on rekard and the 5th vote on Meta4. Though since That PJ was already voting for rekard, presumably Okaros thought he was pushing rekard into the lead with 6 total votes (since the GM said bonuses would be split). Interestingly, Okaros could have put 5 total votes on Simon (who That PJ was already voting for) instead of Meta4, but chose not to.

(E) SMIRKER then agrees to ICB's offer, but only switches his off ICB to put vote #6 on rekard, leaving his useless singleton vote on Maxfrost unchanged. Why didn't Smirker want to vote for Meta4?

(F) IRON CLAD BURRITO puts vote #7 on rekard and #6 on Meta4, both of which make sense. But something about his negotiations with Smirker (which he waited almost 10 minutes after Smirker's vote to start) seemed a bit off to me-- almost as though they were staging it so that ICB wouldn't look as bad for putting a killing vote on rekard?

(G) FURNIMIRADO's late vote for Meta4 ostensibly tied him with rekard, but don't forget the expected extra vote from Okaros+That PJ. So Furin may have actually just been trying to secure the second-place reward for Meta4 while also getting Human cred if Meta4 is later revealed as a Networker. Just something to keep in mind.

Anyway, like I said, there was a lot of odd behavior in those last 20 minutes ...


The reason for my retraction from ThatPJ and you was because at that time the chance of getting ThatPJ in the lynch was minimal at best (as the only person I had any interest in seeing lynched) my next best move was to try and limit the possibility that he would be in a reward position. I did not want the twins to have a reward plus their mighty voting power.

At that point since I cannot refrain from voting I needed two new votes. I decided that I didn't have time to research who in the top lists should be told to sit out the remainder of the walk so I opted for two singleton votes. Visigoth was an error in that I didn't see him in my list prior to the vote. That is why I retracted it a second time and settled with Antipater and FurinMirado, both singletons.

Ah, that makes more sense. You switching off due to fear of retaliation didn't seem consistent with your play style.

Fair enough-- casting two singleton votes is a more understandable strategy.

Thanks for explaining your votes.

Admetus does seem to be eager to grasp for reasons to stick people to the dead guy though.

What are you talking about? Day 2 what? Are you talking about me linking dferrantino and rekard? Read rekard's role in the OP. He's linked with two other people for sure. I am not claiming they're all Network, that would be stupid. But when I already had one as a Network suspect, and then it appears he's linked through vote association to the guy who died, and there was a significant burst of activity late in the day... I think it's not a stretch to ask if there are connections in play.

And here we go! Just like the Five Musketeers!

Three musketeers, wasn't it?

Four, if you count d'Artagnan.

Well, nobody knows how many there were, really, do they?

You do know that "The Three Musketeers" was a fiction, right? Written by Alexandre Dumas?

A lot of people are saying that about the Bible these days.

What, that it was written by Alexandre Dumas?

Don't be daft, Steve! It was written by Jesus!

Are we there yet?

Let's do this!

((OOC: Still having trouble with Rekard as the Marmalade. I ~like~ redheads. I'm less fond of Rekard, but now you're changing the subject. I will grant the point that if one of the pieces of bread were in the network, Rekard would be a high value acquisition based on how his role is written. The question then becomes, why wasn't he first?))

By puppet account, I mean an account created by the GM as a 2nd account for a player whose power lets him use the 2nd account. Not something more nefarious.

If there was a power-related puppet account, talking to the overlords isn't going to do anything because it's part of the game.

Any chance of getting some clarification on rekard's power? The description has the same sentence twice whereas I'd have thought the last sentence would have described what happens when the Marmalade Sandwich votes on the same person.

Going with Rictus today. More a hunchy vote though a couple of things in the voting history that are curious.

Finally got caught up on the vote history. I still need to code a color gradient in VBA for the heatmaps, and my faction color function was broken when I copied my template worksheet for some reason.

Anyway, that means I can tally!

ICB - 2 - sphenodont, Furin
Ravebomb - 2 - Smirker, Zark
Admetus - 2 - Stigmata, CAD
Zark - 1 - twdog
Visigoth - 1 - dferrantino
Blindsniper - 1 - Okaros
CAD - 1 - That PJ
San - 1 - Ravebomb
Simple_Simon - 1 - Antipater
Smirker - 1 - San
Rictus - 1 - Visigoth

With respect, look at the time I posted. You'd be frantic too. Fortunately for me, Smirker had no interest in coin flipping with me.

You found me suspicious early yesterday because I hadn't drawn suspicion, which is an incredibly ridiculous first for me in this game. I am not pleased with you either, though I thank you for the compliment you extended to me yesterday.

Hopefully this soothes Ozy's suspicion of my vote as well. I had no interest in shooting for second, so I voted for the two above me.

And it looks like I will be in the lead right now, which means I will hold my vote again.

I'm not the one that needs to "look human." I've put some speculation up thread, but I'm perfectly willing to believe you'd be a fine Network recruit, and dferrantino isn't going to be a competitive option today.

RaveBomb making a lot of sense is how you know you're past the point of no return and that death is the only escape.
