Mafia and Angel Win!

Surviving Players:

Lunatic - You are the TAILOR. Below is a list of roles in the game. Each night you may choose one of those roles and visit another player. They will appear to all investigative roles to have the role and alignment of the role you chose. Upon death, they will appear to have the role and alignment of the role you chose.

The following roles are in the game:
Redirector

You win with the Mafia

Died in the Night

Thoughts
I want to thank everyone for engaging in what was essentially a beta test of roles and features I've been eager to try out for a while. So I would also appreciate any constructive feedback. My goal was to have all information available up front so there wouldn't be any confusion about how roles work.

There are some things I'm already thinking about changes, but I want to hear what other people think.

As far as game play, I think everyone played fairly well. Lunatic made strategic use of not killing and successfully kept suspicion off of himself.

You played excellently. Not killing in the first two NKs was a bizarre decision, but it fooled me. Your play as mafia is outstanding. GG

You're telling me that the random roles JUST SO HAPPENED to give us both a tailor and a coroner?

Nice one Lunatic. I suspected you were scum since Day 1. It was pretty much confirmed after Zaradi died.

You did tell me, but there was for or against evidence either of you. I made a decision based on probability and got the short end of the stick.

First off, GG to everyone that was a fun game! I just wanted to explain some of my thoughts and processes here, and explain some of the challenges I faced in this game.
So I was a tailor, and had info with all the roles in the game, and was told I could tailor only using the in game roles. Since I knew the set up I forfeited my night kill since I didn’t want to risk hitting bomb or getting watched NP1. So my initial plan wasn’t to play as passive as I did, in fact I was kind of forced in to passive play otherwise I would have looked scummy pretty early. I knew after speedraces first claim that his role gave information to him about another role in the game that he would be the coroner. I was praying he wasn’t going to claim, because I actually wanted to kill him offbefore he claimed coroner, so I could actually get some use out of the tailor role. I knew pie was the 3rd party angel after his initial claim too, it’s the only other claim that made sense. So my plan formed, I was gonna attempt to get a mass claim, was going to claim a protective role since I already had planned that after forfeiting np1. My goal was to claim nurse first and say I protected speed, which would town confirm him and mean he wouldn’t have to claim. That way I could mislynch someone, as I had already planned to do dp1, and then night kill Speed and tailor him as the third party, to make zaradi look scummy for a second mislynch and a win after DP2. Pie’s only goal was to keep his target alive so I knew he would be on board.

But speed put a hole in my plan and claimed coroner before I could claim nurse and confirm him, so I had to play the whole thing differently.DAMN YOU SPEED. I was trying to town confirm you so you didn’t have to claim lol. So after that ordeal the tailor role was basically useless. So I switched gears. I knew pie was scum based on POE since all the other roles were claimed and he was last so I figured by lynching him I would gain some town cred. Pie did come out with his role as expected, but I didn’t expect him to out his protection target, and when he did and you all started talking about SA being town confirmed, I was pretty sure I had lost unless I could lynch pie before he used his role. That’s why I was tunneled on pie like that in DP1, otherwise I would have helped mis-lynch press. When that didn’t work out, I asked drafter if there was any way I could joint with pie, and was told if his protection target was the last one alive with me I could. So that was basically my only hope. I can’t night kill SA because he was a bomb, and I couldn’t mislynch him. Luckily SA seemed pretty sold on me being town so I just had to hope that would continue the rest of the game.

NP2 I wanted to forfeit the night kill, and I wanted to tailor Speed as himself just to be seen visiting him because I figured zaradi might have watched him and would extra confirm me. I didn’t want to kill zaradi because he was who I thought would be the DP2 mis-lynch. I was told that if I tailored Speed though, he would get a message telling him he was suited, and that would ruin my whole plan, so I got forced into forfeiting both actions a second time and wished I was on the press lynch. I thought DP2 would be a press or zaradi lynch but when you guys tested SA’s claim, I got frustrated and killed Zaradi even though he was a potential mislynch, because I couldn’t kill safely as long as he was alive. Also there seemed enough suspicion on press I knew I would get a mislynch on him, which we did. At that point there was already suspicion on Speed for being “blocked” the same nights there were night kills,and I knew I only needed one more lynch to win and to keep SA alive, so I knew I could forfeit my action safely. It was basically my only option. If I killed pie it would have looked scummy since we talked about me using my role on speed, and there was no reason to think mafia wouldn’t kill me. It worked out in my favor because I knew I could spin the logic that way to make speed look bad and explain why I wasn’t killed, since a Pie, SA, Speed lylo would have surely meant death for speed.
Still, not an easy win and I was thrown through the loop and stressed out a few times by town actions, and at the end of the day still came down to MYLO, so good job town! Was a fun and stressful game for sure, wasn’t easy at all for me haha.

Cause Lunatic’s play was amazing. He deserved the win. I was gonna win anyways and a train on Press and Speed were easier than Lunatic anyways

Not only this, but the angels target was a bomb lol. That seemed hella designed. The odds that were random seem astronomical lol. I think some of the game was random some of it was designed.

I was kind of forced to not kill on np1 because I knew there was a bomb and a watcher and I wasn't feeling particularly ballsy. After that it was all to secure the nurse claim.

Good strategy. I thought I was dead after my fake claim, but we somehow turned that around lol

When I wasn't able to lynch you DP1, I had no choice but to win with you lol. There was no way town was ever gonna lynch SA, and joint winning seemed easier than trying lol. You lucky bastard you had an easy win condition.

Would a Nurse's side-effect roleblock actually block the mafia kill if Lunatic was for real?

Your play as mafia is so brilliant it's frightening. I'm going to have to read you as guilty until proven innocent after this.
