JAG, it makes some sense to me to split up soldiers, as you say. I could see an ambush happening someplace possibly.

Wow, we actually have a lot of doctors. I thought more people would pick soldier.

Not sure I see any need for my healing services yet. But I also agree about soldiers covering the areas.

Sorry - I do need to ask what 6 "units" of an activity means. A maximum of 6 players (counting 2x) per activity listed? Is it better to spread actions out or at least make sure we max out on one or two of them?

Yeah, I figured we'd have more soldiers and detectives, but apparently I wasn't the only one who went a different direction.

Yeah, Tyke, I think it means that all things being equal we would need 6 people on each activity to accomplish it. Our detectives should give us extra, which is good, as knowing Abe we may have our efforts sabotaged in some way.

Pretty sure it looks like this for quest actions:

Insane people: 1/2 unit
Regular people: 1 unit
Specialty area: 2 units

Specialty area is like the investigation stuff today allows detectives to double their work. So we need 6 non-detectives on a task to accomplish it or 2 detectives and two other classes or whatever combination.

So it is my understanding, or guess, that the way Cultists are introduced to the game is (solely?) through Corruption rolls. We all have a Corruption score of 19 right now. So there's a one-in-20 chance that any one of us becomes a Cultist tonight. But we could have several, or zero, Cultists starting tomorrow. It's going to be tough to know when to start lynching, as in any Abe game we probably need everybody's help to accomplish our task.

I'm also thinking in later days that like in Spawn or Cathedral it may be possible for Cultists to 'fake' their quest action or potentially disrupt it in another way, though it sounds from the rules like cultist actions are more apt to be night actions.

Another thing I was thinking is that with Cultists not knowing who the other Cultists are, voting / lynching is not going to work quite as well for giving us information as in a typical werewolf game and there is a direct consequence to lynching villagers in that we remove people that could help us out with quest actions or with their class roles, to say nothing of potential hidden roles. So this may be the unusual game where I think no lynch is a viable option barring some information (from quest action or scan or block for instance) that gives us a good chance of lynching a Cultist.

I agree, JAG. Hopefully we have tools to gather information about Cultists, and maybe will have to catch them by seeing that a mission was sabotaged, etc.

Investigate - 2 det, 1 sol - booradley crimsonfox mauchow

Interview - 1 doc - autumn

research - 2 anti - Coffee Warlord JAG


Let's make sure the other detectives spread out on the other two tasks, and the soldiers as well.

We're thinking along the same lines here. Also, even if let's say two Cultists are introduced tonight, they won't know each other, so it's not like a typical game where you can look at voting patterns and say something looks wolfish.

We also may have one or both minister roles in play, which means one or two people may have 20+ corruption scores at the moment, so that could reduce the chance we'll have a Cultist in the game tomorrow, other than the NPC cultists.

And to make matters more absurd, I'm also thinking there's got to be some inane rule set involving those affiliated with the railroad. It'll come into play at some point. God knows how.

So tonight, on Night One, at the end when i toss dice for everyone, if a d20 comes up 20, that person will become a Cultist if they have 19 Corruption Points. For those of you not inclined towards math, that's a 5% chance for each player.

So three of the Antiquers at the library. Since I think it's a good idea (forget who suggested it), NTN, would you investigate the area, just in case something comes up for our Super Genius Skills?

Hopefully, we are coordinating not only our classes into specific areas, but also working generally to putting in 6 total units, at minimum, in each area.

very sorry dude.
Don't remember someone ever dying before the game starts.

It did cross my mind that he might not be out, even though dead. Deadites weren't out during dungeon. They became nasties.

Perhaps he was Kwhitified. Or Autumnified if you will.

The THing did that too I think. The first death was just a death without vote and that was the first "Thing". ANyway just sad Jacob doesn't get to play.

Just doing quick math. I am making the presumption we're all Sane currently, since we started with 20, and I don't believe it likely anyone who had the rare N0 action did something that lowered their Sanity enough to put them at risk of a end of night actions roll.

We have four remaining detectives. They contribute 2 units apiece. So that's 8 total.

Then we have 13 remaining non-detectives, contributing 1 unit each. So that's (of course) 13 total units.

That means we have 21 available total units, and leeway for just three no-shows between now and the quest deadline in 5 hours. So hopefully everyone shows up early.

Questions for Abe:

What is the order of actions for night actions?

And if that can't be set out specifically, can you be more specific about...

When during the night actions that the Sanity and Corruption rolls occur?

We currently have 3 people researching the library, so if we can get a detective and soldier there (for safety's sake), we will be covered. I think we should have two soldiers at the scene of the death since if there's going to be a throw down in any of these quests, that seems like the most likely place.

Some night action orders are in the rules, such as Sheriff. Rolls are are made at the end of the night, after all actions are processed. You lost your CP as a result of the action of the night, not during the night. Rolls will be made tonight against your corruption.

To answer a PM question out here for everyone, for purposes of this game, you MAY vote No Lynch, and if a plurality of people vote No Lynch, then no one is lynched. Not voting at all is NOT considered a No Lynch vote. You must actually post in bod, "Vote No Lynch"

Investigate (1 sol, 2 det) booradley crimsonfox mauchow

Interview (2 doc) autumn chief rum

research (3 ant, 1 doc) Coffee Warlord JAG tyketime britrock

We need boo, saldana and fontisian to make sure to cover interview and research between them. And then Zinto, Simbo and Darth to make sure all three are covered as well. Then the rest fill in the blank spots.

Let's make sure the other detectives spread out on the other two tasks, and the soldiers as well.

So currently we have 5 units at Investigate, 2 units at Interview, 4 units at Research. I suggest the following actions for those who haven't submitted an action yet:

Saldana (Det) - Research
fontisian (Det) - Interview
Darth Vilus (sol) - Research
Zinto (sol) - Investigate
Simbo (sol) - Interview
ntndeacon (anti) - Investigate
GoldenEagle (doc) - Investigate
Danny (doc) - Interview

That will give us good class coverage for all actions and give us 7 units for each task.

oldest trick in the book. You'd expect a beast jumping out in the rocks.
Or an angry guy starting a fight while interviewing (and of course Chief is there )
But you wouldn't expect anything researching books. Therefore the attack will come with the books.
