Our voting records are minimized in this game already with the potential of wolves sending wolves down to Hades. At this point, I'm fine with us orchestrating something during the day even if it minimizes voting records. We are going to win, or lose, this game based on which side can push the other side into making bad decisions over the next 1-2 days. I think this move puts a lot of pressure on the wolves if there are two of them left and one is in the mix here.

It puts a lot of pressure on you, too. Don't screw up Seriously, if you want feedback on the duke vote near the deadline I'm hoping that I'll be around. You can get feedback from whoever you trust (or don't) in the thread and act accordingly.

dola- and I agree we are very tied up with the potential that the wolves sent down one of their own.

question for Pass

I know that if the wolves sent down one of their own, in our case CR and Schmidty, they come up villager.

But if they had a role would they come up as just a villager, or villager + their role.

All wolves show up as vanilla villager if sent down to Hades.

question about War

The rules say if one city declares war that city is turned over to the wolves.

But what happens in the other city? How does the war play out? Do we occupy that city? etc...

I am just wondering because if we are at 4-2 and get a bad result tonight we may be done anyway.

Yes, you guys occupy that city, and everyone in here goes over there immediately. In case this happens late in the day, your lynch votes will not change, but of course may be changed to vote for anyone.

Pass, will we know if/when Sparta has been won by the villagers or wolves? What happens when you win a city? Does the game end or do we get a chance to help liberate the other city or Hades?

You will know if Sparta has been won by wolves, but not if it's been won by villagers (the Spartans won't even know if that's happened). When the wolves win a city, it is destroyed and everyone in it goes to Hades, but when the villagers win a city, nothing happens.

So does the thread just close down when villagers win a city? If we win Athens do we continue posting in the thread? I assume we know when we have gotten rid of the last wolf?

Obviously we do not declare war at that point

The villagers stay in the thread, but the thread is not closed down. The problem is that no announcement will be made to let you know the village has won, so you'll have to determine when you've won, and what you plan to do at that point yourselves.

yeah, very confused right now about that.

If there are no more wolves then no more night kills, no night kills then no more deaths, no deaths no Hades.

Right, but if there are no night kills, does that always mean there are no more wolves? And are wolves the only way people die?

I guess we can "lose" if the other two locations fall to the wolves, if that is what you mean.

Technically, we are not going to learn if we win/lose the game until we get to two people left in town and the town isn't destroyed. Or at least that is how I'm reading it based on what you describe above.

I can't guarantee I'll be back before deadline; if I can I'll check what's going on. I'm still claiming innocence but if this can help the villagers pull out a victory then I'll play along.

Sure, but I'm at work and don't really have the time to explain. Anything I could tell you as a non-roled villager isn't likely to help me regardless--you've already got your reversal lined up on me if things switch anyway.

Amazing--I was going to stick with my day one vote on day 2, but since everyone wanted to go after Tecmo I followed suit. I'm innocent but being a sheep is going to get me shipped out. Take it or leave it.

TheNorm - I might be missing a trick here, but I don't see why voting for yourself helps us towards a tie. If we try to engineer a tie, all you need to do is change your vote at the last minute to screw things up. If we cross-vote (i.e. you vote for me/I vote for you), that option isn't available, as if one person changes their vote, they're the one who gets lynched.

Anyway, I'm out until after deadline. As I said in my previous post, I am willing to be sacrificed in a tie vote for the good of the villagers.

TheNorm - I'll flip votes with you to address MartinD's very valid concern. I understand the idea of self-voting as a show of support but he is 100% right that you could break it all by yourself.

Of course, this makes Abe's decision a little easier ... oh well, maybe Lathum can address this if/when he gets back.

I think that is correct, although we are hoping that we are going to see it end up at 3-3 so that Lathum does not have to use his duke.

If TheNorm really wants this to end 3-3 then he'll change it when he gets back. If it looks like he won't be back (MartinD seems unlikely to be back, based on his posts) then I'll flip back to make it 3-3.

If you find something wrong with that, have a go then.

Alright, I've got a reveal. I know it's cutting it close, but I'm at work and my time is limited.

unvote TheNorm
vote hoopsguy

I'm the real hoplite. I wanted to hold off on revealing this because I'm fairly certain there are two werewolves, but I'm positive that hoops is one of them.

Well, this is interesting - I would have believed this reveal if it had come earlier. I was hoping that it would have come earlier than this, as I would have trusted it at that point. But now I'm thinking that this is a wolf caught in a net.

You have got me - I'm actually just a vanilla villager. Let me be clear - I lied about being the Hoplite, but I'M NOT A WOLF!!!!

I figured that by bluffing at the role that would help me know where to vote today. I knew I was good, I was hoping that I could trust the counter-reveal, and I would be willing to move over to the last remaining candidate as our wolf (likely Marathon).
