    Mafia wins! Speedrace was the last remaining scum!




    Scum MVP: Speedrace

    He made some good calls with the tailor role, which was a huge gamble given how many power roles town had this game, but it paid off well. Manipulated town into thinking there was more scum than there really were and forcing lynches.

    Town MVP's: Drafter/ragnar

    The cop targets were amazing, and the way they played it was brilliant. 2 Guilties in a row were stellar, and mafia were pretty confused as to who the cop was until POE absolutely forced it down. 

    Balance thoughts? I expect to hear a bit about how tailor is pretty OP. I do agree with that sentiment. However the way I designed this game was that scum had to leave themselves extremely vulnerable anytime they used it. It was a big gamble as that JOAT was their only protection against investigation roles. They basically had no roleblock, redirect, anything when they would use it. Also town had a ton of confirmable roles (though this was also designed to build skepticism and lead mislynches among the town, as well as to balance mafia's super JOAT role that basically counters everything). Town would have had a very good chance of winning this had the bomb mishap not happened DP1. Town besides maybe two town players who knows who they are, played pretty well this game but were met with the unfortunate circumstances with greyparrot's bomb.

    BTW as soon as I did the roles and saw GP rolled bomb I had the temptation to switch him with someone else because I had a feeling he would do what he did. But I also kinda thought it would be funny to see how it played out. It definitely was, but yeah I would be pissed if I was on his team lol.

    We tailored Mikal, WF, and Chris. Mikal was actually scum, WF was the lone wolf, and Chris was town

    Also I knew town wasn't going to believe me because of my aggression this entire game. So I felt no point in arguing

    First off I want to say how grateful I am for MAKING IT TO THE END!!! Yo I am literally smiling from ear to ear right now lol I literally don't think this has ever happened before. Maybe it did like 10 years ago (no joke) but this is a once in a very blue moon thing, and I really wanted to play in this game with ya'll for a few day phases so I'm just so happy it worked out that way. 

    I'm also really proud of town for winning despite how the game started with losing 3 townies immediately. I didn't have to role claim until almost the end so again the town played really well utilizing all kinds of context clues and not JUST theme analysis. This is one of the most rewarding town wins I've seen in awhile. 

    Out of curiosity, why didn't the mafia have any claims handy? I know it's tough in a themed games sometimes but seriously ya'll couldn't come up with one? Jeez Louise. Good game though - that was really fun. 

    Supa I am always impressed by your commitment to the very end when you're scum. Despite being one of the youngest people here, you're one of the most mature Mafia players. And Elminster why are you always saying town on DART sucks? It's the same people as Discord lol. I'll admit most times DP1 frustrates the shit out of me but this game was better. 

    Well done everyone. And thanks, Luna, for hosting.

    Oh lol well done then. I jailed you NP1 because I was convinced the barking thing was fake.  Usually the things that seem role confirmed are scum so I knew people would consider you "confirmed" the entire game without giving you a second thought. But since I jailed you Np1 and the kill went through I was like meh. Figured it would be the one fake claim given. Awesome job!

    Town didn’t win, though I am glad for you that you survived to the end.

    Btw, I know I fucked up in the end there, but given my choices up to that point, I wasn’t likely to beat back the accusation. Just went for a ridiculous Hail Mary that I knew wouldn’t work before I did it.

    Damn, Tailor. Never would have seen that coming.

    Ragnar and I posited Speed trolling with his role claim and both agreed that, if he was scum, he deserves this win, and he does.

    Interestingly, if Danielle had not jailed Chris, his oracle role would have activated making an entirely different last DP, but that is how the game breaks.

    In the end, DPs 1-3 cancel each other out. DPS 4 and 5 determined the game based on behavior.
