No units, htis isn;t a BK game. You just post that you are doing the work and you will give one man-day of work unless it is an area of specialization

I think this got lost in the loop and is worth discussing.

You mock even as you steal my mechanic. That's fine. It's a good mechanic and I am pleased to see someone else using it.

I will Orate.

I think we should consider all posting our area of specialization. What it can do is make it know exactly how many units of work should be completed on a specific job and will show us where and if there is faked work. I'm also guessing (but I am definitely not sure) that wolves do not have an area of specialization and thus the wolves are forced to lie about it or risk having other villagers become trusted.

I want some discussion on this, but I don't see a downside to this yet.

I did miss it. Thanks dubb. I would argue people with specialization are asking to be wolf fodder, especially if we can keep our act together. Now there might be a good reason later on to reveal, but I can't think of why revealing now would be a good thing for the village. Of course, if such specializations are pretty widespread then I think the point becomes less consequential.

Ok based on that mass reveal seems good and so I will admit that I'm good at working the Treasury.

For this to really work, hopefully everyone will end up posting theirs as well.

Since I'm still trying to figure out what is happening I am just going to check in at the moment. My skill is neither of the two today so I will also wait to see how this plays out before I decide upon which to do, or wait to see if a mission is planned and if that would fall in line with my skill better.

Checking in, and checking out for the night. In bed in a few hours for a really early start at work tomorrow, then back around 10 AM ET. I'll catch up on anything then.

Not really sure if this would help anything except giving the "wolves" an idea of who to target.

Except since everyone has an ability, and we don't know which days will need which abilities, there's no reason for everyone not to reveal. By revealing we can maximize our utilization and perhaps catch the wolves in a lie. This is how things have worked in my 2 cathedral games and my 3 spawn games. I know of what I speak.

On December 6, 1907, in the small coal mining town of Monongah, an explosion caused by the igniting of methane tears through the #6 and #8 mines causing a massive collapse and trapping hundred of miners!!!


People are panicking and going every which way. Miners and comapny are unorganized and not responding well.


MISSION -

You may send a # of people to organize the rescue crew and try to rescue the miners trapped by the explosion of the #6 and #8 mines.

Post your entrance to the mission is bold. The mission will process at 3 pm tomorrow afternoon. If you go on the mission, you may not work today.

Presumably this goes to today's mission. So Poli should work on that instead of our conversion.

I'd like to see us work out who is doing what as a group before anyone decides to go on the mission. If we use our specialization, we can send a max # of people on the mission and force the wolves to fake in order to not complete everything.

Ok, so if Clap is a 3x, then I believe we should put Clap, Dubb and two others (or one if there is another with that specialization) on Gladhandling and no one else. This frees up a lot of other people for the mission and if a wolf fakes there is a limited selection of players to choose from.

I think people should only reveal specifics when appropriate. So even though we're using Poli's skill today there's no need for detail since we don't know what our ideal # is. Where as dubb and clap seem to be able to perform a majority of our gladhandling work by their lonesome. It would help if clap reveal the specifics of his ability.

And by using Poli's skill I mean Poli should be using his skill to search. Not that this has already been done.

March 7, 1891 – A law is passed which bans the use of company script as payment for workers. No company or employer is ever prosecuted under this law, that companies flaunt for decades. Company script is token money that can only be used in the company store.

I don't see a real downside to disclosure either. Well, actually I can think of one. It's possible the Sympathizers have the ability to disrupt our work, possibly by blocking an individual. In that case disclosure would help them. But that seems unlikely enough that catching them in lies will be a much bigger upside.

So, I have a specialty in hunting. I don't think anything that's come up so far will work towards that, so I'll just go wherever we need a number.

Now there's some good thinking. It would suggest that perhaps we don't want to cut it so close.

Me, clap and Dubb.

If someone wants to think I'm a wolf for it, fine. But it wasn't coincidence that I was all over asking how to put my action in like white on rice.

I think I'll wait and see if the other ones have 3 people specializing in them too before I assume that is the truth.

Seems to me that role speculation at this point distracts us from the main issue which is to get this camp converted. I'll trust that any roles we do have are wise and efficient in their duties for now and worry about which ones if any are around later.

Ready to go to work on either mission. I don't think my particular specialty will help either of the two missions.
