    Oh, it was wrestling? I mean, I don't remember any other characters. It could've been an acting one for all I knew

    For what it's worth, I'm in the middle of a snowstorm and I just got a chance to go online today. Sorry.

    These things happen! I'm glad you're okay though. Snowstorms can be pretty dangerous.

    This is also why we like using the mafia accounts. The host account has thread closing permissions.

    Yeah, it sucks being the first to leave a game. But you did well, Qwerty.

    I had been wondering how this was so different to the usual type of Mafia played. Actually meaningful flavour text? Interesting take on proceedings. I've never seen that done anywhere else, not just at EoFF but on other significant mafia sites I've played on too. And here you were calling us the weird ones Karifean!

    That's not to say it's a bad thing - indeed, the more variety, the better. It does have gameplay implications worth considering. Certainly a no lynch strategy becomes more valid in this instance given that more information is available.

    Yeah this is new. I feel with that info it'll be easier win scenarios. The game will go zoom by because of the extra info on each day

    EDIT:

    This is giving me an extra challenge though. Normally I have fun with the player accounts on trying to deduce who is playing who and without that, I had less interest of that second discovery game within the game. BUT now it's flipped and I know the people but I don't know their identity. So I get to play deduction again with their identities and that's fun for me, outside of the are they a good or bad guy deduction of the normal game.

    Freya I think you've been misunderstanding me and what I look for in a mafia game.

    You and I have always been on the same side when it comes to things getting revealed in the flavor texts. They should always only reveal which faction is committing a murder. That's the entire purpose of a death post. If no death occurs, the post just reads "No one died! The next day has begun."

    It should always address the killer by their alignment, not their identity or role in the game (i.e. Serial Killer or Mafia). Additionally all investigative actions should not be made public and only communicated to the players performing said actions.

    I think in the future it would be a good idea to have a blanket rule that states "Nothing in the Death/Day Posts is necessarily reflective of the characters performing the actions." Or write the posts in a way that doesn't reveal who did what.

    Except from the very beginning Larofean detailed exactly how this mafia would look. It's a different take that requires different strategies to normal mafia, and honestly, I find it really refreshing!

    I to am enjoying it. Trying to read between the lines on everything said, and questioning everything. Going through all possibilities in my head.

    I'm just going with the flow. I've played Mafia the 'usual' way, and now I'm playing it differently. I'm kinda reserving judgement on which I prefer until we've actually finished Karifean's game
