Thoughts on roles So I wrote a nice little java program to distribute the roles randomly. It has thrown up two really good evil teams. Wolves - Top, AN, TR , Interval (alpha) Vampires - Zarlak, Grinner, Danny1982, Damien (alpha) I mean I would seriously struggle to point at this stage which team is potentially better.. wolves may be just edge it since I rate AN and Interval a lot. In any case several first time evils!! Religion, Interval, Danny1982, Annihilate Now! and even Zarlak if you don't count weaste wolf. Two alphas are also good for the teams- Damo definitely needs the alpha to last long. PVs Angel - AVARiCE Seer - That's Hernandez Reviver - Levo91 Witness - Luminous Lizard Vigilante - Urban-ned Magisterate - ciderman90000 Roles only known to moderator Light Keeper - cw1984 cursed - Ed, The Taurean Die with a vengeance - FortBoyard Royal blooded - RedSky, Mr Anderson, The Neviller Miller - KM, StuCol101 I think these roles can make the game very interesting. I am not gonna write more about them now but will expand more as they come into play. Secondary roles Ghost - Zarlak Sheriff - Top Hah! I am sure Top will enjoy being in a power role. Funny how both the secondary roles went to the evils. Serial Killer - B19. ---- One major change I am making this time is starting the game with a lynch instead of a slaughter. Mainly for two reasons. One being almost all people have shown god enthusiasm for the game in sign up thread, I don't wanna lose two good players with out even starting. Plus I think the game is balanced more this way. Turn 1 Night Phase No slaughters to discuss for evils. But they have the auction to take care of. Vamps are off while wolves have not even logged in yet! Top comes in and just like everyone seems perplexed about the new format.. I wish people would stop moaning about new rules. There are no new rules!!!! Lizard chose to follows RedSky TH asks about The Religion!!!! What the fuck.. would love to know how he picked him out straight away. That's Hernandez is probably the best seer village could have. He is never slaughtered since evils think he could get lynched and he has some good instincts. Not to mention he thinks out side the box so will go for some odd picks that help the village uncover under the radar evils. I also feel sorry for TR, a first wolf and could di very early on! AVARice the angel also asks about a vamp... but the alpha one!! Damo. Ha! A lot of activity in first night it self. Zarlak seems too over- excited to me. His whole game with Urban-ned could come back to bite him I reckon. Irwolf did this sort of stuff which lead to his first day outing in eclipse game. Coming back to the auction stuff. The vamps seem keen on the actor role the most while wolves seem to want the seer and witness dodge. I reckon wolves are on the right track. My first instinct would have been to go for seer check at all costs. In any case, more action on auction can be found on the thread on wolf/ vampire forums. Eventually they all got following roles- Top- witness dodger AN - seer check TR - Disguiser Zarlak - actor Grinner- false royal blood Danny - Silencer ------- Turn 1 Day Phase So a lot of lynch time discussion Interval is having a stormer again! That boy has just is shooting up different horizons in this game. First he calls out Zarlak as a vampire yesterday. Now he has AVRICE down as a PV. Only problem for him is that he is the angel! So if they do slaughter him they will be helping the vamps!!! And B19 the SK gives me his target.. his first instinct is to go for The Neviller but changes to ... That's Hernandez!! Ha! The seer... wolves may be dodging a big bullet here... TR has already been fingered... AND Top looks likely to.. Also I think some mistakes by evils today - as a general note some of them having been posting too much - TR is inexperienced but as Cass has picked up, a couple of his posts have been very dodgy. A bit of bad luck for him since he is playing a wolf role for the first time while rest have had plenty of experience and no the mistakes newbie wolves can make - Zarlak has definitely been overexcited as Interval noticed in the wolf forum! And Annihilate Now!. ... I said in one of the games that he is potentially the best WW player on the caf. He produces yet another evidence by naming two vamps already ... Danny1982.. I really like him as a player.. seems he is going to continue with his aggressive style which as a wolf is a high risk/reward strategy... but the kind of strategy I always follow. Avarice with one of those sentences that scream PV Classic newbie mistake. Let's see if evil pick up on it As it stands cider is going to hang ! He is the magistrate! Meh.. I was hoping the new role will come into play Does not seem like he is going to fight to be saved as well. Shame! So cider has 6 and Weaste 4 votes with 25 mins to go.. mmm I can see a late band wagon forming on Weaste.. Top with his 2 votes will be crucial So now Top says he is going for Weaste that makes it 6 for weaste as well.. but but but.. cider's last vote was well before Weaste's so as it stands cider still goes.. mmmm I can see Cass changing his vote from cider though.. let's see.. cw as usual has it bang on A lot of people seemed to have zeroed in to their targets now.. cw with Top, Avarice with Zarlak, RedSky with Danny A bit of worry for the evils that IMO.. So in the end cider gets lynched. Interesting that he did not come out as a PV. It is an interesting tactic that. Basically what you are going for is for people to realise that if he was an evil, he would do a PV play but since he has not, he must not be an evil player. Only problem is that it is turn 1! So people are ok with lynching a normal village instead of outing a PV. Bah.. shame.. I was hoping the magistrate role would get to influence stuff!
