    I remember about this thread, and I am reading it. As I said before - I am naturally quiet.

    Perhaps I am a bit too quiet, enough to be considered inactive. Excuse me.

    I see no reason to vote for Rg but I guess why not.

    Well really I should be suspecting you, last night I checked for your role and I couldn't come up with a result for whatever reason.
    I didn't see Rg as acting suspicious at all rather himself being suspicious.

    Maybe I was roleblocked, maybe someone defended Alkane from all activity but either way it happened.

    Although if someone cockblocked me then like, what the hell dude, someone stole my vote just yesterday give me a break.

    Oh yeah I remember what happened. That would've been Arra.

    So does the Occultist Bot have the ability to steal votes and talk with the dead?
  13. Alkanthe

    Alkanthe Supernova

    What? No, Zetlin stole your vote. He's a former OB but no, Arra was the reason you couldn't find out my role.
  14. CondescendedWow

    CondescendedWow Supernova

    Right Zetlin owned up to being the vote stealing scum.

    Also I have a role suggestion for @Zebe
    It's called the Hylotl Sage, they are wise and can see through to anyone's soul.
    At an given time, unable to be roleblocked the Hylotl Sage can ask the GM to announce someone's role to the entire chat.
    However this action can only be done once.

    = = =

    these votes are all around the place

    Some answers to questions and stuff:
    ...your vote was stolen. It means you can't use it yourself. Zetlin has it in his use, which he revealed as he voted you.

    All the variants are announced, so just a standard Penguin. In the case of a Persuader it would read "Penguin (Persuader)".

    I'm not sure about this. The method of a dead player sending a message via the Occultist-Bot to prove innocence is allowed, even though outside things shouldn't be brought into the game. Mostly because it would be revealed after a while of relaying messages from the Dead PM: A. It's hard to fake messages from multiple people, B. At some point a "something only they would say" -scenario would play, proving that the messages indeed are from the dead. (This was explained in the Game 3, but I feel explaining it again is necessary after that thread got nightkilled by the great Hackocalypse)
    But asking people to like posts is kinda a borderline thing. Technically it's ok, but I feel that's cutting too many corners. It does eliminate some aspects of uncertainty (e.g. the sent message being interpreted wrongly, or some players not believing the message is real). Though the end result is mostly the same, I think the like-method should be avoided.

    yus sweet role ideas
    I'll consider adding these. Some could work great as variants. Bomber is OP tho. More than half of the players are needed to vote for a lynch. On the first few days that could destroy an entire faction. Of course, less votes can result into a lynch if deadline is reached. Still, I wouldn't want to discourage voting with this role (because that's what it basically does).

    I do have a little more dangerous Alpaca variant in mind... which could serve a similar purpose while being more balanced.

    This sounds pretty good. With the chance of revealing a Penguin comes the risk of revealing an important Civilian role for roleblocks and kills. Even though I think this could work as a Dove variant, as it could be easily prove the innocence of the Sage (by announcing the target publicly before GM can make the role reveal, thus proving that they made the choice for who to reveal).

    Heh, sorry. I probably won't be doing that again anyways, and I only did it because I was exceedingly frustrated.

    In other news, the possible role sets have been narrowed down immensely.

    Also why is my vote still Bopn. I'll change it. Vote: Rgbunpro

    Actually, that's my vote for you, not your vote for me. You never did vote for me.
    But i did retract my vote earlier.
