The 20 union leaders from District 17 arrive at Monongah, WV, a quiet town in north West Virgina to assist the local District 41 that is here. Monongah is a strong coal mining town, and it is here that an enterprising wife will create the pepperoni roll by baking pepperoni meat inside of rools for you to eat while down at the mine. Tasty!

Today you will need to complete the following work:

8 Man-Days of Gladhandling
8 Man-Days of Oratory

If you do those, than you may not participate with any missions today, if any.

The Day will end at 9 pm EST tomorrow, Tuesday. Monongah awaits!

Just like votes, same with any mission. Just post you are going on them in BOLD.

You may undo work and missions before they are ran.

Ok I'm more confused that I've been in a while, especially since I read these rules through before they were posted.

There is our daily work to convert the town.
Are there are other missions? Is this the same thing?

Some thoughts out of the gate.

20 players with the ability to potentially convert wolves. I do know my own bribe price, but no one else's or how that translates from a practical sense though. Still, I would guess we probably only have 3 starting wolves.

For today, we have 20 players and 16 units of work needed to complete. I say we assign certain players to a certain job and focus on making sure we get this done. It's always good to apply pressure to the wolves for later by being successful on early missions.

I also have bonus to working in a specific skill, I imagine other villagers do as well, is there a negative for coming out with this information and using it to more properly gage how much work we need on each task?

So the game ending event has something to do with race, I'd guess (having read the Victorie conditions). Something to keep in mind.

Everybody does one unit. Some specialization may play into here. If you are really good at gladhandling, for example it may count more than one.

So the first Oust will not be until Wednesday then, is that correct?

Glad to meet you all. I'm eager to get our first camp brought over to the union cause, but I'm not sure that I'll be much help at talking and shaking hands. I can give it a try.

Ousting is voting someone off or is ousting the wolves making a night kill?

If I understand things correctly:
As long as we meet the work requirement each day, there will never be an ousting and we win after 8 days. People are going to need to speak up real soon as to why we should just start laying out a plan of attack about who is going to work what. There should be, at least on this day, no reason not to do one of the work actions that I can see.

If you succeed today, then it won't be then. That's the tension. The laborers want to convert camps, but when they do, they can't use their only main tool to find sympathizers. The sympathizers want to stop them from converting camps, but when they do, they hand the union an Oust vote. Each side has tension.

Ousting only happens after we fail to achieve the work requirements on a goal. If we're good we'll never need to oust anyone.

Ah, I reread more carefully. We can only Oust if we fail to convert a camp. That seems like it's going to make things tough. It seems we are concentrating on converting the camps more so than finding any Sympathizers.

Don't believe the GM. We don't need to kill any sympathizers to win the game. We just need to convert 8 camps. Now I presume getting the work done isn't as easy as it appears, but theoretically we need not ever vote anyone off.

Wow, we're talking fast and right over each other here. I'm going to pause and let people read up and think. I agree that I can't see a reason not to have everybody working. If a mission comes up we can always switch off.

If that was the case, then we probably don't have conventional roles such as a seer or bodyguard.

But it's not so let's not muddy the waters. We might or might not have traditional roles, but I'm inclined to think we've got some form of a bodyguard, seer, duke, etc.

January, 1891 – Black scabs are first brought in at the Marmet mines and successfully divide the strikers so that companies begin to use the tactic again and again.
