    Welcome to DP1 of Buddas Beginner Series 1.0! This game will be the following set-up:

    Mafia- 2 Goons

    Town- 1 Doctor, 1 Cop, 3 Vanilla. 

    Roles descriptions: 

    Goon- A powerless mafioso
    Doctor- Can protect one player a night from death.(Can protect self)
    Cop- Can investigate one player a night and determine if they are "innocent" or "guilty". 

    Player List

    1. XLAV
    2. RationalMadman
    3. 1Harder
    4. Earth
    5. Daytonanerd
    6. Virtuoso
    7. XLAV

    Day Phases will be 72 hours in length, and DP1 will end at 12pm August 28th CST whether or not a lynch has been reached. 

    Night Phases will be 48 hours in length

    Replacement Policy

    If a player is inactive for 2 phases(DP+NP) they will be eligible for replacement. if a replacement is found before the player returns to activity, they will be summarily replaced. However, if no replacement is found, the current player retains the spot upon returning and is no longer eligible to be replaced. 

    It is important to bear in mind that a NP only counts if proceeding a DP of inactivity. Basically, replacement eligibility counts only start upon a day phase in which a player in inactive. 

    *If you are inactive in a DP, make sure to post in your PM during the NP that you are present. Lurking is permissible, just make sure to let me or Vaarka know thats whats going on so you are not mistakenly replaced. 

    With that being said, let the games begin!

    Oh im sorry, to vote to lynch post in bold

    VTL(Vote to Lynch) "(insert player name)"

    So for example VTL Buddamoose

    Although VTL'ing the mods is unadvisable and might resulted in smiting 👏👏

    VTL No Lynch

    this is mechanically the correct play. We should just play follow the cop. The cop puts himself and the doctor stays hidden and protects him each night. We only lynch if there’s a guilty. 

    The cop cop shouldn’t announce their innnocent until they have to.

    Wtf? Didn’t realize scum had a N0 kill. I’ve played games where the cop had a N0 peek, but never when scum gets a kill.

    Wtf? Didn’t realize scum had a N0 kill. I’ve played games where the cop had a N0 peek, but never when scum gets a kill. 

    This classic set-up is only intended to be 3 DP's max, it usually only last for two. On Epicmafia it results in about an even split of town to mafia wins. 

    Without a N0 kill it switches to townside wins with a considerable majority. Just poor luck that the Cop got killed tbh

    ive never played on EM. I can see this setup being swingy one way or the other. 7 player games are notoriously hard to balance.

    Well to me "swingy" doesn't mean "unbalanced". Balanced would mean that if you played say a set of 100 games, you'd end up with close to or at 50/50 win/loss ratios 🤔. Like, in a 7 game series for sports, 3 games could be absolute blowouts won by team X, the other 4 super close with 4 won by team Y. And even though the results of game swung extremely, those two teams would still fmpov be a "balanced", match-up

    If there's a mislynch, the town can still win if the doctor targets the right player.

    I'm not sure if I like no lynching with a dead cop too. If a vanilla died, that's another story.

    Thinking through some scenarios 

    no lynch with doctor dies = we’re fucked
    no lynch with doc save = two confirm town
    lynch a townie = probably lost

    btw everyone Virt is practically confirmed town. Besides the lack of knowledge of the night kill, his interaction with Budda sealed the deal.
