Also, Flabort, what would've happened if I had gotten the role "you win on day three"? XD
It would have been "Your role changes to martyr, and every other player kills you immediately"

I could recompile them from this list that I linked in the ending of night post:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1F2IWU8hwCD0JJF_PbC1S3iqmJ_TvfQd6z9dmlkazXx8/edit?usp=sharing
But that would take some time. Precisely 3 hours and 42 minutes if there are no IRL interruptions, in fact. Er... subtracting time to not include those comments on the roles.... Meh. 3 hours.
Too much work for tonight, but maybe later.
What would the Homestuck [keys] role have done to anyone?
Also woah, someone submitted me as a role ._.
thanks
Same thing, basically, as what happened to Mastahcheese during the final night: he would have gained an ability. Except, it would have been part of a role, and it would have been related to that role.


A gender-specific role sounds exactly like the sort of thing you'd come up with. :P You have to admit that bit, at least.
And exactly the sort of thing I'd end up copying off you. :P
It was a balance attempt in a game where the theme was "trading and copying powers".



Just to note, the (Unusable) Luckiest-Son-of-a-gun ability. I was thinking that if anyone ever targeted TolyK with an ability that uses a random night action, it would work despite being "unusable". Or if TolyK ever got his hands on the Mod-Kill-Laser-Rifle, he could use Reload to make it usable.
But there wasn't enough ability trading; I should have given more, because less then I intended was used. :P

So I was a living Shakeragian party box to pick and put powers from given that I couldn't use any power while still alive O_o?
Oh weird. But fun. Would do again.

I can imagine the workload you had to do for...all. Those. Roles.

For the record, my role was awesome; Stoke Shakeforge is the best rolename ever.
Amusingly, I was thinking that before I read down to your post.  I need to appropriate that phrase for -something- in the future.

I submitted the Tiruin role. And I got it, and it was really nice because without it I would have died Day 1.

It was a bit tough on the scum team, this game: Cheese and I were both almost-unkillable vigilante cops with multiple actions per phase.

If you had inspected me, you would have gotten "NQT is mafia."  It may have set off warning bells, but it wouldn't have told you directly.

A small team is always vulnerable to random mishaps (UI's bomb).  Had I been able to really start hitting people with Conspiracy Nut (also great naming there) then that would limit town's power, since so few people had no Shakeragian roles.


EDIT:  Also, I'd soon be able to revive a lot.


EDIT2:  Also also, I could have started self-lynching and reviving off the gained Liquid Shakerags, which would have been just hilarious.

A few more points:

Day 1 lasted 54/77 pages. Maybe there should be more limits on extensions? (Maybe, no extensions on Day 1?)

I'm glad no one noticed my careful not-quite-lies:

1. Someone has a power that will screw with the truth value of info you get from powers, so my advice is that if you're using Inspects etc, only bother if they're definitely infallible.
This 'someone' was myself. I even tried to get that power back after losing it (because it allowed me to get rid of people's votes).


2. There's a role called Mute (I believe Varee submitted it). Whoever has it can prevent players from voting. The same person was most likely responsible for killing some peoples powers today.
Here what I was saying was technically true but phrased to be misleading. There was a role called mute. Whoever had it wasn't able to vote. I happened to be the person that had it and I could also (from an unrelated role) prevent players from voting, and I was in fact responsible for getting rid of Wolf's and Tiruin's votes. I was concerned about there being someone else who could gain new roles like I could, or steal roles if they knew the name, so I tried to trick players (hopefully scum) into taking Mute.

Scum could indeed remove votes!  But only obviously doing it.

Overall, my only regret was that I didn't make a convincing argument for reviving me.

So day 2 we lynched the one who got Ebola, I believed I killed 4maskwolf because I thought a lynch would be wasted on him.

Note to self: Don't be afraid of a little bandwagoning. so you don't end up with a disaster like reply #1097.
Also do not imply, drop anvils.

Dropping anvils is always the best choice.

Which is why I tried to make my "subtle" clues to Tiruin as blatantly obvious as I could. :P
Which I still did an awful job at...

So yeah, I made up a bunch of stuff during the game about what I could/couldn't do.
