    What would you do about that in case we have someone that doesn't show up?

    I'm always for lynching inactive people but especially so in such a small game. My assumption is 2 mafia. Just one would be unbalanced. Very curious why Jabberwok is assuming there is could be another non-mafia killer as well.

    I'm not so sure to be honest.
    D1's 24 hour time limit might not be indicative of someone's activity in a regular 48 hour Day phase.

    I would be fine with a simple post confirming that the person is keepping up with the game as long as the person knows he can be more active in a 48 hour period.
    However, the mafia numbers do concern me.

    Regarding that, 1 vs 7 could only be possible depending on the way the mod sets it up. However, the randomness of the item distribution makes me believe that it would be hard to balance. Depending on what the mafia guy picked, it could be pretty much impossible to stand up against a 7 men town.
    I'm also assuming 2 mafia for now.

    We can ask for an extension, at least on the first day. The game really shouldn't start without everyone acknowledging they're here.

    For the same reason that you're thinking 2 mafia, except that 2 mafia could win as early as Night 2. That seems a lot more unbalanced than just one. Two non-affiliated killers seems better balanced to me if there's more than one killer.

    And from a metal perspective, two mafia communicating via DM means messages that we probably won't see post-game and communication that Shuhan can't really oversee. Seems like an unnecessary complication.

    There's 7 in the town total, unless I'm mistaken. Not 8.

    Typically mafia and any other groups that are allowed to communicate do so in quicktopic boards created by the mods. I've never seen people allowed to PM each other. My guess is 2 mafia but lots of power roles. I could start speculating as to the possible significance of the item list but not sure we want to go there yet.

    This game started on literally the worst group of days for me. I'll be as active as possible, but from now until Wednesday night I'm gonna have to use my phone for this.
    I'll be in every couple of hours.

    I agree with Foolio on the 'two Mafia with power roles' thing. It makes sense, considering the item list at the start. With nothing to go off of as to what they do, I assume it has something to do with roles. Any amount of story/fluff in a game this small would be odd.
    Then again, Chester...

    Even for games run here on AP? The only games I've been in so far have been on zetaboards so I wasn't sure how it would work here.

    Yes, we have held dozens of games here. It wouldn't work otherwise.

    Well that's good to know. Anyways, unless there's a buttload of power roles I still think two Mafia is too many.

    I'd guess that they've been arbitrarily assigned to roles. Why those items? Maybe they're related to the Chucky movies?

    Oh wow, sorry, busy day at work and didn't check in here until I got home. Hadn't realized we'd be starting this early. Apologies, I am here and ready.

    Yeah, 6 Town/1 Mafia definitely feels like it would be too Town-heavy unless it was a power-role-less Town. I'm not considering this layout very strongly.

    On the other hand, 5 Town/2 Mafia feels like it would be too Maf-heavy, particularly if both Mafia have powers. If there are indeed 2, I would hope we're dealing with an empowered Town and maybe one powered Mafia at most, with the other Mafia (or even both of them) being vanilla. After all, if they successfully kill people on Night 1 and Night 2, and we mislynch on Day 2, the game would be over by the start of Day 3. Still, this arrangement, with a stronger Town than Mafia power-wise, is probably the most likely option.

    That being said, based on these numbers we have for this game, I'm also heavily considering the same possibility as Jabs: that we have 5 Townies, and 2 killers in different factions. That actually feels like it'd be just as balanced, if not moreso, and only tipped in one group's favor depending on whom the killers choose to go after. If they happen to both choose Townies on Night 1, we could be screwed really fast, especially if we mislynch, but we'd also have a decent chance of being able to lynch scum because the killers would be looking for each other, too. That also means that the game wouldn't end as quickly if we mislynch, since each scum team looking to have majority/tie for number of people would be 1 instead of 2. And on the flipside, if one of the killers does the dirty work for us and kills the other, things could turn in our favor very quickly, as well.

    So yeah, I'm about equally heavily thinking about 5 Townies/2 Scum or 5 Townies/1 Scum/1 Scum.

    I think we're fine without that for now.

    Why that question right now?

    You know, I was so wrapped up with thinking about the unbalance of a 1v7 scenario that I didn't even consider the consequences of a 2v6 one.
    It does put us in a very tight situation, but I guess in a small set-up like this is sort of expected that a mislynch on D2 might be fatal. On the other hand, we also have some pretty good odds of hitting scum.

    We're 8 players.

    Lazy Shuhan didn't update the list to put SuDK in.

    If there are 8 players then I’d say it’s likely a 6/2 town/scum ratio. That’s assuming third parties aren’t involved in the setup, and I’m not prepared to go on a witch hunt speculating whether one exists or not while no evidence is available. I won’t criticize anyone who wants to speculate about it, but don’t let it distract you from a mafia that’s guaranteed to exist.

    Second thought(typing on mobile and don’t feel like erasing). Are we sure there’s 8 players? Shuhan only had us pick from 7 items. Did someone not get one?

    The lack of a setup post is concerning. Especially considering the trolliness that Chester displayed in his previous installment. Hopefully it’s just because Shuhan had to run off to work and he’ll give us one upon returning.

    Oh never mind, seems that question was solved as I typed.

    I thought about this as well, But I reckon that the plot simply isn't relevant in this game.

    Anyway, even if it holds some clue, it won't be anything groundbreaking, especially on D1. Otherwise Shuhan would probably have held the start of the game for some hours.

    We were given some One Piece characters and sent to a cave.

    In the cave there was a letter stuck on a door by a knife. Then a very handsome player figured that he could pick up the knife.
    on D2 we found some chest and the very handsome and wise player figured that he could open the chest with the knife and released the evil that was Chester the Evil Chest Guy.
    Then it allowed players to pick items every Night that gave them some sort of ability depending on the item that was picked.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Ah yes, he gave items in trade for penalties I believe. I was a mafia guy and since I was also the handsome, wise and hung player that found the thing he gave me one for free, so I forgot that.
