[VFM] JoaT^2 - Day 4 (8/15)

Welcome to JoaT^2, hosted by @Arete and cohosted by @DatBird!

Rules:

Follow the Global Forum Rules, given in this post:

Additionally, for this game, a minimum requirement of 20 substantive, on-topic, game related posts per in game day are required. Posts that are explicitly or obviously made solely for the purpose of meeting this requirement do not count towards the minimum, nor do posts containing solely a vote. The first time a player fails to meet this requirement, they will be given a warning; the second time they fail to meet it, they will be replaced out. A player who zero-posts will be subbed out without a warning. This requirement may be reduced or waived if an execution is hammered early by majority.

The game will begin when full.

Alts are allowed; Arete is the alt mod.

Gameplay

  • The set-up is a 15 player set-up with 10 Vanilla Townies, 2 Town Jacks-of-All-Trades, and 3 Mafia Goons.

  • Each JoaT has access to three abilities, and must use each ability once before using it a second time. They are not required to use them in the same order each time.

  • A JoaT cannot target the same player with the Heal action on two consecutive nights.

  • Days are 48 hours unless majority is reached early and nights are 24 hours.

  • Executions are majority and plurality.

  • No-execute is a valid vote, and may be hammered to end the day early. In cases where no-execute and another vote are tied at the end of the day, no-execute will have priority in the rand.

  • In cases where two or more players are tied at the end of the day, the Mafia will decide which player is executed. They have up to half an hour to make this decision (for angleshooting purposes, the full half hour will always be used). They may submit preferences in advance, and if they do not submit a timely choice it will always be assumed that they wish to save a member of the Mafia if that member is put to rand with a member of the Town.

  • Self-votes are considered valid votes.

  • Votes are locked in LyLo (execute-or-lose) scenarios, but not in MyLo (misexecute-and-lose) scenarios. That is to say, in situations where town must execute correctly or lose, the first vote cast by a given player is final and cannot be changed.

  • All votes must be in the form /vote [name of player] to be considered valid, and all unvotes must be in the form /unvote. This is to enable the smooth processing of votes.

  • The Mafia factional kill is assigned. If the member performing the factional kill is not specified, the last member to submit a kill will be assumed to be performing it.

  • The Mafia factional kill is mandatory. If no factional kill is submitted, the kill will be determined randomly from among living members of the town.

  • The Mafia will communicate through a private Discord server or forum topic.

I let you vote on the flavor and you all voted for cat pirates

this is why democracy doesn’t work

“Time to disembark!” meowed the captain of the Joyful Roger, as the crew prepared to disembark. He drew his cutlass and charged down the plank onto the island, twelve fellow pirates behind him. Together, they bounded across the item, the sand cushioning their paw-steps.

“Is this the spot?” asked the captain, as they came to an oasis in the center of the island.

“Aye aye!” said another pirate. “The treasure should be buried somewhere around here.”

Suddenly, as they looked around the island, a pack of wild dogs came charging at them. The cat pirates began to flee back towards their ship, but the dogs chased after them. At last, they managed to reach the ship, and clambered onto it. Yet though twelve of them were able to make it onto the ship, the ship’s captain found himself surrounded by the pack of dogs.

“Hurry!” shouted the ship’s second mate. Yet as she stared at the captain, a few of the dogs began to rush up the gangplank, snarling.

The captain turned to look at the second mate. “I don’t – I won’t make it!” he said. “Save yourselves and go!”

The second mate pulled away the plank. “Anchors up!” she said. “We need to leave, now!”

The pirate cats began to row the boat away from the shore. The second mate began to count the cat pirates. She needed to know whether they’d lost anyone – whether they’d lost anyone else. Eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen – she pointed her paw towards herself – fifteen.

Wait.

She counted again, for certainty. There were still fifteen players.

There was only one conclusion she could come to: the dogs had infiltrated the ship.

Still, with the superior numbers of the cat pirates, the dogs would need to remain hidden. If they just stayed calm and tried to deduce who the impostors were, they could take back control of their ship. And they had an advantage that the dog pirates didn’t know about.

The second mate adjusted her hat as she called the crew together to explain the situation. They could do this. They had to do this.

Day 1 has begun, and will end in 48 hours, or when a majority is reached for execution. With 15 players alive, majority is 8.
