Why hello there, my dear students! My name is Monokuma and I am your Headmaster! Welcome to Hope's Peak Academy! A place where only those with an incredible talent can apply! You are all so good at what you do that we call you Ultimates!

Buuuuuuut just having you around messing around is booooriiiiiiing! Let's shake things up a notch! It's time to start the-

HEART-POUNDING ULTIMATE DESPAIR KILLING GAME!!!

The game is pretty simple! Among you hopefuls are a number of double agents - my own personal puppets known as Ultimate Despair! They will be doing their very best to eliminate you while remaining covert! So there's gonna be lots and lots of murdering!

There better be, or otherwise this bear will get cranky!

But where's the fun in them killing you without you putting up a fight! You can try to stop them by voting on who gets lynched! At the end of every Day - or Class Trial, as I like to call them - the person with the most votes on them gets killed! Puhuhuhuhu!

No! Wait! If we all just stick together, no one has to die!

Now then, as I was saying, the person with the most votes on their head by the end of the day gets lynched! And they're gone! Bada-bing, bada-boom - eliminated! Deceased! KERPLUNK! Class trials take 48 hours, and I'll be posting a summary at halftime. Oh yeah, they also die if a majority vote is reached earlier. So if there's 14 of you and 8 people decide they want to lynch someone, that person gets lynched, and the class trial is over! No takesies-backsies! Once someone dies, no matter how, I reveal their role, alignment, and player identity.

You keeping up? Good! After the Class Trial ends, Nighttime begins! During Nighttime, you cannot talk in the Game Thread. YOU MUST SLEEP! No conspiring! Unless you are Ultimate Despair - that's when you talk, but in a way that no one can hear you! If you have a night ability, you communicate to me who you want to use it on - just make sure you do it PRIVATELY, ya dingus!

OOOOH! ALSO! I ALMOST FORGOT! I am Monokuma, your Headmaster - and therefore, I make the rules! You listen to everything I say! In simple terms, every Class Trial has a special Daily Rule that you must obey. If you don't - you die. You just die. It's the end of the road for you, sonny, and you can go no mo. Buh-bye! SO! Play nice, a'ight.

Now let's take a look at our wonderful contestants!

Here's a list of roles which mmmmmmmay or may not be in play! Who knows! I'm also not telling how many there are of each or which one is aligned with which side - I want you smart little prodigies you to figure it out on your own!

- Godfather - will always come up as Vanilla Hope's Peak Academy Student when killed
- Goon - can kill at Nighttime
- Roleblocker - can block another player's night action
- Tracker - can determine who the player is targeting with their action, as well as who is targetting them. No specifics regarding what action is being performed, however
- Vengeful Spirit - upon being lynched, they place a Grudge on one of the people who voted for them, ensuring that they will wake up dead in the morning!
- Doctor - protects a player from being killed by Ultimate Despair
- Cop - can determine a player's alignment and ability


Of course, we need to clarify some technical details! Do make this all easier for myself and your kind selves as well. If you want to vote for someone, simply type, in bold:

[##Vote: *character name]

If you change your mind and don't want to vote for them, you can always type:

[##Unvote: *character name]

And if you don't want to vote for anyone, you can always:

[##Vote: No Lynch]

Always use these tags! Otherwise, your vote will just not be counted. At all. So make sure your voice is heard!

And so, without further ado, it's time to commence...



CLASS TRIAL #1!!!


You have 48 hours to discuss and strategize to your heart's content
Use the appropriate tags to cast your votes
You will be reminded after 24 hours that you're halfway done
If a majority vote is reached earlier, the day ends immediately and you can no longer post
Yes, self-voting is allowed



SUPER SPECIAL DAILY RULE!

Let's start the first class trial with something easy! Say hello! You must post at least one post in the Game Thread before the first Class Trial ends. Otherwise, you will be eliminated!




Have fun, everybody! Puhuhuhuhuhu! GAHAHAHAHAHA!

This is a horrible situation, and it seems inevitable that some of us will fall, but let me be clear: as long as we remain calm, stay united, and use our heads, the Ultimate Despairs can and will be struck down. I beg you not to prove me wrong.

Sir Monokuma, I have a question:

In your opening description, you said the Godfather will always flag as a Hope's Peak Academy student when killed. Does that mean investigations by police officials will work as intended? Will a Godfather flag as guilty?

I only ask because in my experience a Godfather will be revealed as such upon their death. What changes is that investigations will flag as innocent.

Just checking to make sure I have a grasp of the rules.

Excellent question, your Princessship!

The Godfather is a role that allows them to fool most people. They are a master of deception! That is why, in the even that they get lynched, they will be announced to everyone at large to be a regular Hope's Peak Academy Student!

However! Some of you have skills that could potentially give you a clue or even outright state someone's identity (e.g. Cop, Tracker) - these cannot be fooled and will always yield a 100% accurate result!

I'm back from my Princessly duties. There's only so many babies to kiss in the world! I am surprised that this game is moving at a rather sedentary pace. To my knowledge, Leon Kuwata and Teruteru Hanamura have not arrived into class this morning.

Maybe these guys are sick!

It is worth keeping in the back of one's mind, but I agree. It is still the first half of the trial. Maybe they forgot to set their alarm! I mean it is so easy for me, I have my manservant Jeeves bring me a moist towelette and an ounce of caviar each morning at 6:00 sharp. Imagine not having that cool refreshing dab of water to wake you up. Or a manservant.

More concerning for me personally are the people present who are not saying very much. We need a topic to centre discussion around and observe what happens. I wonder what that topic might be...

... what are everyone's thoughts on no lynching?

[M] Joe - Army Dad
04-20-2017, 07:45 PM
Meh. It might be worthwhile to no lynch first day if there are no good lynch candidates. Too early to say.

[M] Harry - Dad's Dad
04-20-2017, 07:49 PM
To answer my own question (how terribly impolite of me!):

I am personally in favour of no-lynching provided that at the end of discussion this class trial, no suspects arise, though hopefully through able discussion that likelihood shouldn't arise. How I see it, there should be no hard-and-fast rule on whether no lynch is beneficial or not. It simply varies trial by trial, semester by semester.

I will say no lynching is not as beneficial here as in smaller class sizes, because one mis-execution in a small class size can drastically affect the school's survival, while in a larger class size such as in this case, an accidental mis-executions (which should be avoided, of course) is not the game-ender it might be.

Of course, what will help avoid mis-executions is by people talking about the class trial and the students within it.

[M] Mike - Funny Dad
04-20-2017, 07:54 PM
Depends on the situation usually. I don't think it's an instant tell for nefarious deeds like others have stated in past games. Usually, to me, that's a reach.

Really it depends on the flow of the game and size and conditions and and and. All the variables!

I think we should hold off on lynching until they arrive. If Monokuma kills them off for breaking the rules, we might be down two allies right off the bat.

04-20-2017, 08:04 PM
Same reasons most people consider it bad: you're not taking a shot at mafia, you kind of kill discussion if no one is under threat, and you'll (probably) never have a point in the game where it's safer to lynch (well, unless you lynch a mafia day one and the doc manages to save night one. Then I guess lynch on day 2 is even safer since you've gained ground). The downsides to a bad lynch are much less now than they would be later basically.

I guess I could see how trying to limit the town deaths to one on day one might be desirable, but I'm generally against plays that are safe for the sake of being safe. If it's do or die and the safe play is actually the best option then sure, but not right now.

[M] Aaron
04-20-2017, 08:06 PM
Chiaki does make a good point about the people still missing though. If they don't show then a bad lynch will be very dangerous obviously so I'm holding off on voting anyone yet.

I understand what your saying but on day one your probability of guessing wrong is way higher than later. So if you lynch and are wrong your chances of aiding the other team is statistically higher. So if there are only say 2 or 3 bad students then you have a 2/14 chance of getting it right.

I dunno to me, a day one no lynch isn't a bad option for the town if it seems like there are no glaring candidates.

Monokuma;3661346']NO ONE GETS TO EAT UNTIL SOMEONE GETS LYNCHED!!!


Speak for yourself. I have secret pizza.

There's a simpler reason why no lynching is always, always, always a bad idea : It cedes control of the game to the Mafia. If the scum can choose who to go into LyLo with, guess what? LyLo is going to be populated with scum and the scummiest townies. Each surviving townie will have no idea who to vote for because everyone looks like scum.

Theoretically, each phase in a game with no power roles, town lynches the scummiest looking player, and scum shoots the towniest. With that method, if the game does reach LyLo, it's going to be a LyLo with the towniest possible players surviving that the town can manage, which makes it easier to pick out who the scum are.

Yes, power roles can change things, but the basic idea of Mafia is still core to the game. No Lynches, anywhere except in MyLo or with a game-breaking strategy like Follow the Cop (with a claimed cop and the certainty there is a doc), are incredibly antitown and should never, ever, ever be allowed.

[M] Aaron
04-20-2017, 08:18 PM
Yeah, with a big game the odds swing a bit more in favour of the enemy than for us, but it's still relatively safe in my eyes simply because of the large numbers involved making the penalty for a bad lynch numerically less significant. Plus, like I said, I don't care for safe plays this early in general. I like to come out swinging but I may have aggression issues :exdee:. But I generally want a candidate to at least sort of jump out at me. So far no one has since things are moving so slowly. And I do fully agree with you on what happens if the two missing folks don't show up. That would make a lynch so undesirable it's not even funny.

Mountainous game? Is this term some meta thing from some other place?

I think this is a reach. Again. It isn't putting the hands of the game into mafia. You still have more town than mafia. If your solution to the game is to get rid of all the players that aren't the most "towniest" looking than you could end up hurting the town more so. Sacrificing less town seeming players, in your eyes, seems like a bad idea. Some scum look very townish. Some roles can look very suspicious too depending.

Yes, which is why the term "mountainous game" is clickable to reveal the definition.

You're missing the point -- getting rid of scummy-looking players isn't a one-and-done path to victory, it's a path to not letting scum pick who get into lylo unilaterally. If scum control who makes it to endgame, they will win in endgame.

That's without even considering that the lynch is the town's only weapon. If you don't lynch, how do you get rid of scum? Leave out lots of pills and try to make them feel really guilty?

[M] Mike - Funny Dad
04-20-2017, 08:49 PM
Lynching absolutely isn't the towns only weapon. Discussion is probably one of hte most important ones.

and

Please don't apply meta-gameplay terms or conditions from other places to EoFF. We have a lot of new people who haven't really played or only played one or two games here. So the meta doesn't really apply. So what may work in a place that has an establish Mafia community, that isn't the same here. Best to just take EoFF for EoFF and not apply other sites gameplay to it.

I thought we did have power roles? Are power roles not the roles like cop and doctor? I imagine they can help us without us having to blindly kill our fellow classmates.

It's still the game of Mafia. The same logic applies no matter where the game is being played, and "mountainous" is a Mafia term, it is not specific to any site any more than MyLo or LyLo.

I'm not trying to intimidate anyone with terminology, which is why I use spoilers when I need a term that I haven't seen here before, but if I can't discuss the game for fear of using a word that maybe someone hasn't used before, I can't exactly play Mafia.

[M] Mike - Funny Dad
04-20-2017, 09:00 PM
I've never heard it used before and I've played this game for nearly a decade.... soo.....

Maybe instead of using whatever vernacular you've picked up somewhere, just explain it? Instead of saying "mountainous set up" and spoilering it, just say in a game with no power roles.

The meta commentary is unnecessary and distracting.

If you can't play the game without throwing out random terms instead of actually explaining yourself than yeah, this game wont go well for you.

Well thanks for clearing that up. I have precisely zero suspicion of you which I'm sure Byakuya would 100% agree that this is the case and you're 100% above board. I mean you're not the sort who would see suspicion in a whole lot of nothing would you? Or am I not meta enough for you?

I, for one, am taking Mahiru's stance. I can't justify lynching anyone on the very first day, and never have in previous versions of this game. The risks for shooting ourselves in the foot simply outweigh the potential odds of eliminating a killer. I may retract or change it if something convinces me to within the remaining time, but until then:

So after re-reading the thread the only thing that sticks out to me was the lone vote. The reason for the vote was I think to stir the pot and get conversation started only. It wasn't overly specified that was the case though and seemed to just vote for the sake of voting. No real thought put into it. Was wondering if Leon could go into more detail why he voted the way he did. Are we missing something he picked up on?

[M] Paul - Rich Dad

Hello everyone again! Apologies for my short absence today, I was once again performing royal duties on behalf of the Kingdom of Novoselic, opening a new art gallery. I cut a ribbon today. What a thrill.

The lack of discussion among the class is disturbing. I know we aren't usually allowed to speak up during class unless asked a question, but this is a rather different situation and it seems to me like we are spinning our wheels without getting much traction. I'm sure the enemy would love for us to wallow in Ultimate Despair and say nothing. I'm slightly suspicious of those who have barely contributed.


Nagito;3661456']I'm sorry, I was too stunned just watching you all to speak. Truly, you are the Ultimates chosen by Hope's Peak, what amazing talents you all have!

But I am also suspicious of those who seem to contribute without actually doing anything. I found this post by Nagito suspicious. "I'm sure you guys' judgment will lead us to the best possible result" sounds very passive. Surely everyone should be contributing in class? He does offer up his own advice afterwards, which is nice, which amounts to "we should gather information", but then proceeds to take no action in gathering information.

This has also been his only post since his introductory hello. I find actions running counter to belief to be suspicious, or at least a good starting point, so for now:

I am reluctant to point a finger at anyone at this point. We have a large class and I don't think it's a good idea to blindly kill people. These are our classmates we're talking about.

The suspicion I have so far is Leon, because of how quickly he voted someone off. Especially since he seemed to know Ibuki did post and I was mistaken that she didn't. I thought at first that she would be killed by Monokuma for not saying hello and he said "Let's get this over with" or something to that effect and I thought he was saying that she should be voted off because she would be killed off anyway. Yet, his next post he seemed to be fully aware that she had posted, so I'm not sure what his motivations for voting her could be?

This is all my interpretation though and I could be misunderstanding the situation. I don't want to go blindly accusing anyone until they've had a chance to clear up any misunderstandings!

[##Vote:Chiaki]

Why would voting Leon, specifically, save you? I could see the thought process that a vote would increase your chances of survival, but if you were voting just to save yourself, the logical step would be to vote on someone who already has a vote, which takes you out of the line of fire unless a second vote on you was placed -- and this vote was placed in spitting distance of deadline. The choice of Leon makes no sense.

[M] Kurt - Cool Dad
04-23-2017, 12:04 AM
Yeah I had actually fallen asleep and was still in a bit of a doze and for some reason I thought someone had already voted Leon. They didn't though so I decided to keep my vote as Leon because I figured flip flopping like "Oops got it wrong" might just make me seem even more suspicious and at this point I still think his vote was kind of out of place and odd so I went ahead and kept my vote for him today because I don't want Monokuma to kill me off for not voting. Really at this point I have no major reason to suspect anyone so I'm just grasping at any little thing. Like, in this case, because he voted for someone who had posted who I thought had not posted, so it seemed weird he voted for her out of nowhere? That was my reasoning although you are right, it's pretty flimsy.

There's still plenty of day left though and I'm more than willing to change my vote if something comes up. So long as I'm not sleeping or gaming though and actually pay attention

Hmm... well, now I have some suspicions.

- Ibuki and Teruteru have both only posted once, to say hello. It's perhaps excusable in Teruteru's case, as he was the last to introduce himself and may just be habitually late to the discussion, but Ibuki was among the first and stands out all the more sorely.

- As others have pointed out, Leon opened with a vote and has been silent since. That could point him squarely to either side.

- Yasuhiro has multiple posts, but has never raised suspicions or meaningfully participated in the discussion.

Nagito's behavior is odd, but for now, I will buy his selection of Chiaki being entirely random.

I won't cast my vote just yet, so if any of the students I listed are willing to come in and attempt to defend yourselves, do so. Whatever the case, unless something else happens to drastically elevate my suspicions, I will most likely vote around halftime.

Good morning everyone, I apologise I missed the start of Day Two's Class Trial.

From what I understand, the main piece of evidence so far has been Nagito claiming to have been blocked. If that is the case, then that would indicate Nagito trending towards Town if we assume the absence of there being a Student-Aligned Roleblocker and Nagito actually being a blocked Mafia Goon but - admittedly - that sounds rather farfetch'd.

That is how you say that word, correct? Apologies, I am trying to study trendy new language from outside my country: you would not believe the slang that originates from my country, you would ask for a fainting couch!

For now, I am willing to believe Nagito was roleblocked. If he is indeed telling the truth, I apologise for voting you yesterday, Nagito!

Which leaves me rather in a quandary because Nagito was my main suspect. He isn't completely removed from the list, but for now, someone else comes into focus:

[##Vote: Leon]

Perhaps we could just ask him. Why did you say you were blocked, Nagito? Also, if your talent is useless, why are you hiding it? Why haven't you fully claimed what you are?

Byakuya seems to think he has a good reading on some people, so let's hear it. Watcha got, man?

I started with a solid townread on Sonia, since she was the first to post game-related content with her question to Monobear about the godfather role. That shows a mindset of trying to solve the game early on.

Second townread on Leon was for opening up with a vote and trying to move us from the joking/roleplaying phase into playing Mafia. Making accusations and backing them up with a vote is a valid and effective method of scumhunting, and it was the first real scumhunting I've seen all game long. I will not be voting Leon today.

Scumreads:
Chiaki for the cognitive dissonance at the 11th hour of Day One -- I'm not buying her copout, and
Nekomaru because he's voting Leon for scumhunting. Who doesn't want us to scumhunt? Hint: It's a four-letter word starting with SCU and ending in M.

It changed to 9 people who need sorting after Sonia did the same thing as Nekomaru, but actively discouraging scumhunting is a stronger tell than trying to figure out the setup, so Sonia's slipped into my null, leaning scum pile. And now, so have you. Which means I probably have more scumreads than there are scum in the game.

I am not trying to discourage anything, but I cannot help but think a single vote - no expository notes or comments in over a day's worth of time - is suspicious. He may have assisted the start of serious discussion in the first few hours of Day One, but he has certainly done nothing for me so far to suggest he is willing to carry on facilitating discussion.

As I said in my previous post, it is not an ideal vote by any means, and it is liable to change should someone else pique my interest. And I want to place my vote now in case a family - sorry, royal - emergency means I must leave the class trial for an indeterminate point in time.

Byakuya sure does seem to think those leaning against Leon are scum.

All I'm sayin' is that you stay quiet if you're tryin' to keep people from gettin' a read on you. If you're tryin' to keep people from gettin' a read on you, it's probably not for good reasons.

Exactly -- you keep quiet if you don't want someone to have a read on you. You don't barrel into a thread filled with nothing but roleplay and goofing off and ensure you're going to stand out in peoples' minds by swimming against the current and trying to find scum.

There's clear town motivation in Leon's actions, and no scum motivation at all--what scum would think it would be a great idea to get all eyes on them immediately? That's not a good way to fly under the radar.

[M] Joe - Army Dad
04-23-2017, 05:36 PM
Honestly, I don't find that argument terribly convincing. People act in all sorts of ways whether they're town or mafia. There's no set "mafia" way of posting.

[M] Harry - Dad's Dad
04-23-2017, 05:40 PM
Honestly, a lot of this can be read two ways.

A) "Leon is clearly Town. No Mafia would open themselves up to scrutiny so early!"

B) "Leon is clearly Mafia. No Town would be so quiet throughout the day and not back up his votes!"

Ultimately, it depends on which you weigh more, whether you find Leon's sheer inactivity to be suspicious, or his early vote. I still cannot overlook his the void that his is posting history. Though I cannot deny that his early vote did shake things up.

Someone else rather high on my list of suspicion is Ibuki. She has not done much of note all game. I am not convinced she is doing all she can to help Town. I want to hear her thoughts on the state of the trial, suspicious characters, things of that nature.

[M] Al - Biker Dad
04-23-2017, 05:56 PM
It seems my vote is going toward either Ibuki, Teruteru, or Leon. Ibuki and Teruteru for being completely silent and only just recently popping in without contributing anything useful, and Leon for the obvious reasons and the fact that he's still silent with all of this suspicion brewing around him. Again, I will decide around halftime.

Of course, Leon did vote for Ibuki, so unless it was a deliberate bluff, logic would indicate that Leon's guilt would signal Ibuki's innocence, and in turn, her guilt his innocence. We should keep that in mind.

[M] Joe - Army Dad

OK. I've explained how Leon's actions can be town-motivated.

This seems strange to me since I thought only those with power roles would be informed when they're blocked. So if you don't have a power role then that's definitely an iteration of the roleblocker role I've not encountered yet.

So can I ask why you shared that with us so early? I could perhaps understand wanting people to know there's a roleblocker in play, but even that seems thin to me. If the roleblocker (or one of the roleblockers) is mafia then at best haven't you admitted that you were blocked but don't have a role essentially confirming you shouldn't be targeted again? Exactly what was your play here because it seems like it has the potential to help mafia more than hurt them if you're really town unless I'm missing something.

1) Leon's scum, and decides to play it up on the suspicious behavior thing. Why? Because of course, man. It's the ol' switcheroo. Act suspicious and people will think it's too obvious to mean Leon is actually scum.

2) Leon's tied up, somewhere. Maybe literally.

The main reason I haven't voted on him is because he hasn't responded yet. I'm getting the ol' busy signal on trying see where he's at right now. He's basically a dead man at this point either way. That's the part that's starting to not make sense in the ol' noggin'. He hasn't posted once this cycle so far. Which means tuxedo bear is gonna off him. But what he's doin' is so shady that most people want off him even if he does post a vote.

Yasuhiro, your argument that having eyes on you somehov being indicative of scum is quite a reach considering the very purpose of his being suspect is his inactivity. I think you may be reading too much intent into his actions or lack thereof

It's very possible he's simply inactive, yes? I agree his gameplay up to this point has been rather lacking in helpfulness, though.

You're arguin' the same side of the coin, chica. You sound like you're disagreein' or somethin', but you just said the same thing I did. At first he was pretty suspicious, and he still kinda is, but now he's been so inactive it's hard to tell if it's a scheme or if the dude is just out of it.

Only thing I can see, other than he's legit gone, is that he's layin' low and waiting for everyone to pull votes back offa him because they think he's gone. Then when the heats off, he comes in at the last second and puts a lynch vote on someone. He could be hopin' for this situation.

He'd survive another day, but it'd be pretty obvious he's scummy at that point. It's a stretch, but not totally impossible.

Okay, I suppose that's plausible but my gut still doesn't quite feel right. It's been hard to get straight answers from you. Maybe it's just some role play but I feel like you've dodged some questions whether intentionally or not and if nothing else it's confusing to the conversation.

I'm leaving my vote for now just because it's gotta be someone and you seem pretty safe at the moment anyway.

And I've never bought into this whole Leon is scum thing that heavily. Sure, it was a bit suspicious when he disappeared for a while, though still being gone is weird but possibly just a sign of irl commitments. If he pops up at the last second when the heat is off I'll actually be a bit more suspicious of him, but prior to his disappearing all we had was two posts, one of which I very clearly interpreted as scum hunting.

Well well well! Looks like my special rule played its part! And yet, not all of you voted. And thus, it is with great sadness (actually it's glee! Puhuhuhu!) that I must announced that two of our students did not make it. They died from a heart attack. Because they did nothing. And that's why you have to work out, kids!

Leon Kuwata was a Hope's Peak Academy-Aligned Vengeful Spirit! Since he died as a result of a default, his super special ability will sadly not be utilized. I am personally super devastated with this turn of events. He was played by the one and only Scruffington who seems to have just had too much on his plate! Speaking of plates...

Teruteru Hanamura was a Hope's Peak Academy-Aligned Cook! I mean, Tracker! I guess he took the secret of who did the deed with whom to the grave. We hardly knew ye, Teruteru! Guess he couldn't handle the heat! Which is odd, considering he was played by The Summoner of Leviathan, who should know all about kitchens. And sausage.

Now then, WHO GETS LYNCHED?

(since we handle lynching after the defaulting deaths, the person left with the highest number of votes gets lynched)

Leon - 1 (Chiaki)
Teruteru - 2 (Celeste, Yasuhiro)
Byakuya - 2 (Sakura, Nekomaru)
Ibuki - 2 (Sonia, Kyoko)
Nagito - 1 (Gundham)
Chiaki - 1 (Byakuya)
Yasuhiro - 1 (Ibuki)
Nekomaru - 1 (Nagito)


My my! Another tie! No "no lynch" this time, puhuhuhu! Now then, heads means Byakuya gets it, tails is Ibuki.

Aaaaaand.... Tails! Our lynch victim today is...

Bored now! Guess I'm gonna start the trial prematurely!

Guess what! No one died today! I would be upset, but the situation is kind of different, because...

If you guys lynch the wrong person this time around, you're gonna have a bad time.


CLASS TRIAL #3

You have 48 hours to discuss the game freely and lynch someone. And just so you don't think I'm all stick and no carrot, today's special rule doesn't threaten anyone with death! This time, you can win A PRIZE!

(this is really just to even the field out a bit, because Hope's Peak is pretty much on the way out at this point~)


SPECIAL DAILY RULE


Get a special one-time night power that will give you the upper hand in a dire situation!

In order to be eligible for the prize, you must:

be one of the people who voted for the person lynched - so let's say Yasuhiro gets lynched today because five people voted for him. One of those five people has a chance to get the prize!
be a Hope's Peak Academy-Aligned Student (sorry, Ultimate Despair, you cannot take part in the lottery)
in the event that the person lynched has been voted on only by Ultimate Despair, then only the voters for the second closest to lynch candidate are eligible
naturally, the winner will not be announced in the thread - they will only be informed privately!


But what is this prize, Monokuma? Puhuhuhu, well, if you really want to know...


You will be completely immune to Ultimate Despair's attacks that night
You will receive a special one-time night action that you have to use on the next night. If you have a night action already, you can and should use both. What the action does specifically will be made known to you and you only!



Okay now, have fuuu~n!

Well, most of the students I was actively suspicious about died yesterday in one fell swoop, and turned out to be innocent (unless one of the "Vanilla" students thus far was actually a Godfather). The only one of my original suspects still alive is Yasuhiro, and while I have a couple of new leads to follow based on recent discussions, I am less than confident in my deductive abilities this time around.

The fact that there was no night death either means the doctor healed the right victim or we have a good-aligned roleblocker who blocked the right murderer -- or else the Despairs simply decided to mess with us after yesterday's massacre. If it's anything but the last option, I still see a glimmer of hope for Hope's Peak, however fleeting.

I'll take some time to sort out my suspicions and determine who I really find suspicious. We really need to make this lynch count.

[M] Kurt - Cool Dad

But your scum read on Byakuya, unless I'm mistaken, was you feeling like he was scum protecting another scum (Leon).

Sticking to one read that was based on a proven bad read seems strange to me. Am I missing something here?

This is dramatic. Okay, so here's what I am thinking currently:

1) We lynch Byakuya. If Byakuya flips specifically as a Cop, then he is telling the truth. We should lynch Chiaki and Sakura tomorrow.

2) If Byakuya either flips as Ultimate Despair or as Vanilla Townie, that means he is either Mafia or Godfather, and thus we have lynched a Mafia. Chiaki is confirmed as Cop, Sakura is likely not Mafia.

Does this sound like a plan, everyone? I'm open to suggestions on this. Let's take today slow and methodical. We don't want to choose incorrectly.

I wouldn't be too hasty with this either. It is possible that he's a townie lying about being a cop to get us to follow his gut on who mafia is. Also claiming cop if he's a vanilla or a less important role likely means that mafia would target him and they might just kill a vanilla. Seems convoluted but it is possible. Lying about being a cop doesn't AUTOMATICALLY make him mafia

I investigated Nagito night one, he is a townie, and I investigated Sakura night two because I really had no idea who it could be, Byakuya seemed obvious, so I took a shot in the dark. Sakura is reasonably active so I figured I'd gain info either way. She came up vanilla townie

I'm not so sure about this. Town people should never lie because if they are caught out in a lie, then they look so suspicious it is impossible not to lynch them. That then just draws unnecessary attention away from identifying Ultimate Despair members.

I suppose I could see the 'lightning rod' idea, but then again, the actual cop or doctor would go "huh? hang on a minute", out themselves, and then expose them to Ultimate Despair. I'm not saying either of these are impossible, but they are so unlikely and detrimental to be plain stupid if this was actually the case.

Also, those reasons seem fair. Using investigations to clarify ambiguous types who don't swing innocent or suspicious is a pretty good tactic, actually.

If it sounds like I am a contestant on a blind date television programme (In the Kingdom of Novoselic, our programming is reduced to cheesy soap operas), I'm trying to get as much information as possible in the event that if our cop survives this lynch and they're killed in the night (say a doctor got roleblocked or something): we at least have their final summaries and thoughts from a confirmed Town, and a power role at that.

I don't buy Byakuya being town claiming cop if he's not cop. So if he flips vanilla I'm saying he's godfather right now. So I guess this day comes down to who do I believe the most? Honestly, Byakuya is a guy I have a hard time pinning down most of the time but I haven't gotten a scum vibe from Chiaki. If I have to pick who I believe is the most likely to be town it's Chiaki. And honestly, I think we can see where the wind is blowing either way where Byakuya is concerned and we need that special night action pretty badly right now so I don't think town can afford not to be voting for the majority lynch target.

I'm not sure that is indicative of anything, to be honest. Ultimate Despair spies can be open and visible, or they can quietly decide to not make much of an impact and coast along. Equally, students can take charge and try to direct conversation, or (and especially if they have a power role) they can choose to follow.

I can only speak for myself and my word only, but I have done my best to try and propagate conversation where I can, trying to get us all to communicate with each other - which was a task the first class trial - though I do my best to not try and lead conversation and dominate talk. I've certainly not been 'going with the flow' either, and I examine all arguments. If you were referring to the Leon misvote, yes, I hold my hand up and say I was wrong, but it seemed the best possible choice at the time.

Whooaaa.....oh man. Things just got, like, waaaay bloody. I was hopin' that Teruteru dude would speak up too. Was lookin' forward to tryin' out somma that grub he was braggin' about. :(

I don't know other peeps, but I found Byakuya actin' all bull-headed about insisting Leon's initial shady behavior simply couldn't be read as anything but scum hunting to be a classic distraction. Walking in the room and voting to lynch someone with no reason as your introduction is just doin' somethin' ta cause chaos. Then he just went quiet. Who knows for sure what Leon's (Scruffington) motivations were, but if you ask me, the dude was just disgruntled. I think Byakuya took advantage of that.

Makes him looks nice and innocent, because as a scum he knows who else was scum, which meant he knew it wasn't our bro Leon. So he can pretend to protect Leon. He could try to convince people to lynch another townie instead because good bro Leon was just scum hunting. If Leon never posts, that's two townies gone. Poof. If Leon did wind up posting, oh well. Byakuya's still leading the charge to lynch another townie.

As time went by, Leon's inactivity made him look less scummy, but Byakuya seemed too convinced from the very start and came down hard on people who disagreed. I also think it's kinda suspish the he's been trying to lynch is Chiaki. She seems like a cool chic to me. No bad vibes from my crystal ball for her, man.

I ain't perfect, but I gotta trust the energies I'm readin' on this one.

Well now! What an unexpected twist of fate! It looks like we just had our first majority lockdown in the game! Let's take a look at the votes!

Byakuya - 6 (Sakura, Chiaki, Byakuya, Gundham, Yasuhiro, Celeste)

Chiaki - 1 (Nekomaru)

No vote: Nagito, Kyoko, Sonia

This means that the victim of today's trial is Byakua Togami. Our affluent progeny was a Vanilla Hope's Peak Academy Student played by Citizen Bleys. Shocker, I know.

So you guys are in for a rough ride. But have no fear! One of you guys who voted for Byakuya is getting a prize and will get to do something special tonight on top of being totally immune to killing!

Kyoko Kirigiri, the Ultimate Detective! Poor Kyoko did nothing wrong. In fact, she was a Hope's Peak-aligned Roleblocker! Yowch! They're gonna feel that one in the morning, aren't they! She was played by the amazing KleinerKiller. You did well, bud! Better luck next time!

Puhuhuhuhuhu! GYAHAHAHAHA!!!!

You guys are gonna have a bad time...


CLASS TRIAL #4

You have 48 hours to discuss the game freely and lynch someone. Last trial's special rule was a breather. This time, we're kicking things up a notch. You guys are gonna be super dead unless you really work together. Now, pay attention since this rule can be a doozy!


SPECIAL DAILY RULE


You must lynch someone with a unanimous vote!



of course, not completely unanimous - I don't expect the person being voted out to be super stoked to vote for themselves. Plus, they're gonna be dead anyway! Who cares about their vote!
anyone who votes no lynch or for someone other than the majority vote by the end of the day will die
naturally, the majority lockdown rule does not apply this time around. HOWEVER! If a unanimous (minus one) lynch is reached before the class trial ends, that's when we have our lockdown.


So, to sum up, you guys have 48 hours to reach a total agreement. Anyone who disagrees will die. This means the game could potentially end during this class trial if enough people go against the status quo. That goes for both Hope's Peak and Ultimate Despair.


Okay now, have fuuu~n!

First things first. Byakuya, man, good riddance to bad trash. Can't say I'm at all surprised to see you turn up like a "regular student" now that you're gone. Odds of bein' the god father have to be somethin' like 90%.

Kyoko, rest in piece. You weren't sure about me, and like, I wasn't really sure about you. Looks like we lost a good person though. :(

Oh man, I've got some super important information peeps. Strap in, it's gonna be a long one.

So check it out, a sadistic little bear informs me on the previous night cycle that I got, like, totally role-blocked by someone. Wasn't sure if I could disclose that info or if it'd be breakin' the rules, right? No reason to get offed for doin' somethin' stupid. But I did know that Byakuya is a bad dude, so I went ahead and voted.

Turns out I'm not the only one not feelin' that dude anymore, and he's a gonner before that bear gets back to me on whether or not I can admit someone tried to role-block me. We're locked in another night cycle, right?

So, like, a new day and sure enough, bye bye Byakuya the "Vanilla Student". However, Ying-Yang bear has some more info waitin' for me for my night cycle. Looks like someone role-blocked me again. Not a problem this time. Remember how any Vanilla Student who voted for the person who wound up gettin' lynched would be in the running to get a special, one time ability? Direct from the bear's mouth, peoples.






SPECIAL DAILY RULE


Get a special one-time night power that will give you the upper hand in a dire situation!

In order to be eligible for the prize, you must:


be one of the people who voted for the person lynched - so let's say Yasuhiro gets lynched today because five people voted for him. One of those five people has a chance to get the prize!
be a Hope's Peak Academy-Aligned Student (sorry, Ultimate Despair, you cannot take part in the lottery)
in the event that the person lynched has been voted on only by Ultimate Despair, then only the voters for the second closest to lynch candidate are eligible
naturally, the winner will not be announced in the thread - they will only be informed privately!



But what is this prize, Monokuma? Puhuhuhu, well, if you really want to know...



You will be completely immune to Ultimate Despair's attacks that night
You will receive a special one-time night action that you have to use on the next night. If you have a night action already, you can and should use both. What the action does specifically will be made known to you and you only!



Must be my good karma payin' off. More like abilities. Check it.

Told me I'd get to investigate two peeps I thought were shady in one night. The bear says if either of them are scum, the results would come back that at least one is definitely scum. So it's a 50/50 shot on which one is which. Or it could be both!

My special action could not be blocked! (Niiiice. I knew whoever blocked me would keep on blockin' me, so let 'em waste it. They can't block this part.)

So I start thinkin'. I'm puttin' my faith in Chiaki bein' the cop, right? And that seemed to be workin' out 'cause Byakuya was definitely lookin' like scum after his lynch results. So according to her, I can prob say Sakura and Nagito are cool. Chiaki likes 'em, she's a cop, I like 'em. Don't need a crystal ball for that read.

I also know Chiaki's suspish of Nekomaru. So was I. Still, I don't wanna waste a read on someone who's prob already gettin' scoped out. Thought someone might block her read on Nekomaru, but ya gotta roll the dice sometimes.

So, instead I investigate Kyoko and Celeste. Kyoko doesn't seem to like me, and I know I'm clean. Celeste just seems off to me. The bear confirms there's definitely scum in the read. All right, so I know it's one of the two, and I get ready to come in to the thread and let you know.

Until I read that Kyoko is gone. Sorry we didn't get a good read on each other, sister. Looks like you were one of the good guys. :( Still feel bad about that.

But that eliminates any variables, dudes. According to my read, and according to that evil bear, Celeste is confirmed scum.

I agree. Also there seems to be the matter that Yasuhiro was blocked and I was blocked, which means we have more than one person who can block. Or at least we did before Kyoko died.

I'll go for it. We need to present a united front after all so if no information arises to dispute Yasuhiro's claim, I'll vote Celeste. If anyone DOES have anything to dispute his claim, now is the time.

So you are all out of hope, are you Celeste? How shameful for the Ultimate Gambler. But then, you would know better than anyone when you've already lost, wouldn't you?

Either way, Byakuya was certainly the Godfather and his screaming battle with Yasuhiro was too convincing for me to be able to believe they are both Mafia, so I'm all for putting our faith in this investigation. However, there is a matter you shouldn't forget and should still be discussed, so I won't put down my vote just yet.

*Why did Byakuya do what he did?*

For someone called the Ultimate Affluent Progeny, surely he was thinking of some sort of gain for this monumental risk he undertook for no apparent reason. Surely he calculated far ahead to realize we would probably end up in the situation we are in now. And yet, still, he did what he did. Why?

Show me what answer the Ultimates come up with.

It's a fair question, bro. All I can see is maybe this. Like, he knew it was a gamble, but he was hoping by claiming cop he could get the real cop to oust themselves and let the other mafia get a bead on 'em. No way it's a coincidence that Chiaki's cop role got blocked the same night after she came out as a cop. If people believed him, then they could night kill Chiaki, Sakura, or Sonia like Byakuya wanted. If no one buys it, then he's a goner, but the other mafia now know who they can block and can add a kill. So, since no one bought his story, they blocked Chiaki's move and killed off Kyoko. It's a number's game, man. Sacrifice one mafia to neutralize two students.

Plus there's this.


Monokuma;3661990']
Celeste;3661987']this game is all sorts of crazy

Puhuhuhuhuhu!

That bear is crazy, man. He loves makin' chaos, and there's no way Byakuya could've calculated that the bear would do somethin' like give out a special one time power. Dude probably thought it was a safe bet at first. Even if he lost, mafia is still lookin' strong. But not after I got lucky with that special ability, and by then it was too late.

The way I see it, like, we probably still have two scum left. One that can role block and probably just a goon dude. We're catchin' a break here for sure man, but I need you to have faith in me like I'm havin' faith in you, Sakura and Chiaki. She says you're good, and after her and Byakuya's cop situation it seems like she's bein' honest. So I'll leave you guys alone. Scouts honor n stuff, bro.

I know Celeste is bad news, so she's a goner in my book. After that I've only got eyes for Nekomaru, man. Unless he can really prove himself clean. That's how I'm playin' this one.

Like Yasuhiro quoted it was a good mafia move at the time. Sniff out the Town power roles and sacrifice one for the good of the others if it backfired while giving them a list to target. What backfired on their plan was the special day power that allowed town to sniff two of them out and not just one.

I will also see if I can prove I am a town too now. The best evidence was day one conversation. The person who turned out to be scum (Godfather) pointed a finger in my direction. This would be a stupid move for mafia day one. To risky of a potential lynch mob with not a lot of information to go on. That's the best I can give you guys.

Seems like a flimsy argument to me. Day one is, if anything, the day when people are least likely to bandwagon a single person. And as much as you want us to pay attention to his picking at you that day, he didn't even vote in the end. If the best you have is a scum made some accusations that never really went anywhere day one that's not a whole lot to base your defense on.

Hello everyone. Sorry I have been absent so far today, I had a busy evening yesterday evening and I have been at work today so I have missed the first quarter of the day.

I have now caught up with the class trial. What Yasuhiro says has not been counterclaimed by someone else claiming to have won the lottery, so we can probably deem that to be reliable information.

So, the Ultimate Gambler is caught out by a twist of fate.

[##Vote: Celeste]

I am still suspicious of Nekomaru. I certainly do not find it unreasonable for two Ultimate Despair members to put distance between each other by accusing the other. And this is especially so on Day One, where random finger pointing is unlikely to stick. If you look at Day One's voting record, there were numerous 'one vote' instances on several students. It is very easy to simply accuse a fellow Ultimate Despair, thereby making themselves seem opposed to one another, and have that vote not amount to a successful lynch. If anything, Day One is the perfect opportunity to make such a move under the cloak of shadows.

Lets focus on the Celeste thing for right now since we need to present a united front this round. If anyone has info about Yasuhiro or Celeste please share. We can deal with remaining mafia when the time comes.

Also yeah I think Byakuya did what he did to draw out the cop. I doubt its a coincidence that I was blocked after that whole incident yesterday

Also, as Yasuhiro won the lottery - and the lottery is ineligible for Ultimate Despair - it means that Yasuhiro is a Confirmed!Student.

Who has yet to post? Sakura? Unless Sakura has any earth-shattering revelations to heap on us, I don't see why we cannot start to discuss other topics. I have examined everyone's opinions on Celeste/Yasuhiro and I cannot add anything to what has already been said.

Yasuhiro is a student yes. I believe Gundham is the final scum. If anyone wants they can feel free to check me out. I am a plain vanilla student and as such has no night action. If there is a block and a kill it will show me as a student also.
