Five years after Andy went to college, he has finally acquired his degree and he has returned home to find a job. His first stop upon returning home is to see Bonnie and check in on his old toys. He’s happy to see that Bonnie is still taking amazing care of them and he spends a few hours playing with her and, more importantly, all his old toys. The former inhabitants of Andy’s room decide to throw a party that night after Bonnie goes to bed in order to celebrate the return of their lifelong pal. Some good times are had and one member winds up sleeping in Bonnie’s backpack.

The next morning Bonnie heads to Sunnyside as always and the toys at Sunnyside are not their usual, happy selves. The toy overhears some unsettling voices from the past and realizes what’s going on. Upon returning home, the former inhabitant of Andy’s room informs the rest of them that there are whispers that some of their old enemies have returned and that they kidnapped Andy and are holding him hostage in the basement at Sunnyside. Hearing this news, they set out to find all their old friends. After reuniting past and present toys, they set their sights on Sunnyside, ready to free their former owner...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rules:

--Breaking rules, even if it is only one infraction, is grounds to be mod-killed. I'm a pretty lenient mod and there aren't a whole lot of rules so play nice.

--Do NOT contact each other outside of the game by any means necessary unless your role allows it and it is the predetermined time that you are allowed to talk.

--NO LYNCH is on the table.

--There is no time limit on days and I will not be stepping in to force Russian roulette or anything like that. It is up to you, as a town, to come to a consensus.

--CHARACTER and ROLE reveals are ALLOWED at any time. Feel free to reveal at your own risk.

--All lynch and unlynch votes must be in bold. You must unlynch before you can change your vote.

--If your name is on the player list and you did not receive a role PM, let me know ASAP.

--Do not talk in teal, that's my color.

--Refrain from editing your posts.

--None of the "if you're wrong about me, will you agree to not play for a month" or "If I'm evil, I'll never play again" stuff. No sig bets.

--On the first three days, there will be an "event" at noon:30 ET. Looking at where everyone is located, I feel this is the most fair time to do it. Try to make yourself available at that time as I'd like everyone to have an equally fair shot at winning the prize.

OSU vs. SP, a duel for the ages.



This needs to happen. However, I'll forgo or possibly just delay a few of my usual Day 1 tactics since I've arrived later than usual. Two few people that have piqued my interest:


1. OSU: Seems over panicked to the recent events. Questioned the joke voting.

2. Todd: He's leaving and put out a no lynch vote. I don't mind that he informed us that he won't be around but in a time limitless game, to throw out a no lynch vote seems odd to me.



Considering his jumpiness, let's see how he handles this.

Reading through, the only thing that stood out was Renji saying we should quick lynch by following our gut, which if the lynch is done quickly on day one, gut equates to random choice.

This is what has stood out to me the most as well. You can't claim you haven't lied, because there's no way to go back and prove that, so it seems a way of covering your ***. Plus any blanket statement like that is going to look suspicious.

I think it would just help get people killed a lot faster, at least those who are town w/ roles. The mafia would target those who seem to have a big role (based on knowledge of characters in the movies) and I feel as though that would be disastrous for the town. I'm fine for revealing something about myself (this isn't me dodging at all) but I'm nervous about blanket reveals.

What I'm hoping he meant (and I'm going out on a limb here) is that the Mafia would know who is what character, and then be able to guess at what roles people are, and then take the high-powered roles out and then **** the rest of us so that they win.

Meh I could really go either way with Mrs. Grizz. If the mafia were afforded safeclaims, they would have been given the town's win condition and likely a somewhat obscure toy, which would therefore make sense to claim to be a townie.

An interesting group, for sho.

jr's plan is one that is no fun, absolutely. The concern becomes: have we gotten to the point where we've seen enough "Can't see him being evil if he'd propose such a crazy plan" where it can start to become a mafia tactic?

Character reveals obviously put us way ahead without having to strategize with them. I'm not leaning either way on this one, just yet.

Now Mrs. Grizz is a little more sketchy, if you ask me. Win condition reveal is totally new kids on the blech. The way she referenced the mafia here just didn't sit right with me. Just a bit of a hunch.

God I think that'd be way too obvious. It would make the mafia target us right away just out of sheer suspicion of that hahaha

SP is disturbingly quiet....he's a lot nore active...and he's only been popping in and out.

Forenci is posting in the Vampire thread btw. I have no idea how Mrs. Grizz plays so maybe it is just inexperience. I would like to hear from JR just what his motivation is in proposing we all say who we are. He implied it was this intuitive conversation that we just had to have. I don't see it that way and was pretty surprised by the suggestion.

Why? What is gained by discussing such a bad plan? Are you just suggesting this because we haven't had the freedom to reveal characters in a while or what?

I'm discussing it because Day Ones are often usless so it is good to have discussions. We can gain a ton of information just by analyzing who participates in the discussion and what they have to say. Hell, a few people are already suspicious of me for even thinking about discussing it.

It was not the initial proposal for me, it was your later reactions. You seemed to back away from claiming it once it got heat on it, then you proposed we lynch people hesitant to character reveal, when if the mafia was afforded a safeclaim, they would likely have no reason to be hesitant.

Exactly! So if you can see me as possibly being evil for suggesting it, why wouldn't you want to discuss it more? I'm sure we could figure some things out, or at least get some suspicions if we have a decent discussion about it.

It's the same as the lynch no-lynch discussion. We have had it in nearly every single game. I'd say 75-80% of the people who play are pretty entrenched in their opinions on the matter. But does that mean we should discuss it? No, because we can still gain some information from the discussion.

Well, I have never played in a game where character reveals are allowed, so I wasn't aware of how it worked out. That is the main reason why I never said "Let's all reveal out characters!" I only asked if we should discuss it. The fact that killxswitch doesn't even want to discuss such a plan is suspicious to me.

There's not much discussion to be had. It's stupid and not going to happen. Not sure why you're so desperate to defend it.

There are valid points to the lynch/no-lynch discussion. And we may even hash that out again here since there's no time-limit. But I see no upside in all of us revealing our characters. Some are going to be clearly bad so those people are going to lie. And characters like Woody, Trex, and other prominent good characters would be painting targets on their backs.

Also (this is not to JR but rather everyone), why is it a given that mafia have been given this safeclaim? I've only been mafia one time in the Sesame St. game and there was no safeclaim.

Character revealing also was not allowed in the Sesame Street game. Character claiming was allowed in the LOTR game and put the mafia in a bad spot, so after the game there was talk that Comahan had suggested a way to remedy it.

There are also win condition safeclaims where all non-townspeople are provided with the town's win condition(I did this for Community).

Already thought of a concept for LOTR II :)

Also, I think Ive figured out how to effectively negate role-claiming, or at least making it a completely ineffective strategy that will help no one. Will try to implement it into the next game i do.

I will have to ask IBC where Comahan made his solution more specific than this.

I'm not despreate to defend character revealing. If I thought it was a path to a sure-thing lock of a win for the town, I would have already done it. What I am defending is the need to discuss it.

Also (this is not to JR but rather everyone), why is it a given that mafia have been given this safeclaim? I've only been mafia one time in the Sesame St. game and there was no safeclaim.

Thinking about it now, the mafia almost has to have a safeclaim. If not, there is nothing to stop everybody from coming out with their character. The mafia would either have to risk coming out with their own character and hope they could argue he was good or they would have to lie about who they are and hope nobody else has that character. That is why I said anyone coming out as a very minor character should be looked at suspiciously.

I am willing to bet that on top of safe claims the mafia has a couple ninja/unlockable kills to even the odds.

off the last few pages... seems like Mrs. Grizz win condition reveal was a bit of a newbie screw up rather than a mafia move. though I am reminded of Broth in the DDN game saying something related to the town win condition and being evil.

I have not played many games with OSU, but wow he is not doing himself any favors here. like McGee said - defending stupidity with further stupidity.

Thinking about it now, the mafia almost has to have a safeclaim.

this makes me think you are scrambling. I can never quite get a read on you, but this seems like a very clear attempt to back away from your earlier theory.

She's posted the most, by far, in the thread.

We're coming up on 4 hours in, and all but 5 have posted. Still waiting to hear from

Forenci - surprise surprise
CJ - did school start?
Brodeur - actual surprise
D-Unit - probably timezone issues
Fenikz - probably timezone issues

Really? 4 hours in and you're worried about inactives?

At least give it some time. I am here, I didn't even know the thread was open (this tends to happen to a lot of people). As I've said, I am always active, outside of one game, as I take the time read the entire thread (just finally caught up). I am here and will be checking in quite a bit as I'm just sitting here writing an essay.

After reading, my biggest suspicion is OSU. Honestly, he always plays and gets defensive when people accuse him but at the same time he doesn't read the thread a lot (he is claiming to this time) so lynching him probably wouldn't hurt us too much.

Still, I'd like to wait for some more discussion.

I'm not scrambling at all. I didn't play in the Firefly game. I didn't play in the Lord of the Rings game. Those are the only games where chracter reveals were allowed. So for that reason, I never even thought about the mafia having a safe character claim. But if IBC, who is a more experience player and mod than I am, says that it's likely they have a safeclaim, then I forced me to think about that. Grizz said he put measures in place to prevent character reveals from ruining the game and I can't think of anything else he could do other than give the mafia characters that are not in the game but would be good if they were.

Is it suspicious to anyone else why killswitch is so eager to hear from inactives on Day 1, and just a handful of hours into the game no less???

I fully get questioning inactives after a while into the game, but this has shades of premature lynch pushing. Why so anxious to bring this "commonly used excuse for lynching" to the table this early?

Trying to get a quick kill in? Trying to use it as a means of deflecting attention away from himself?

I hardly see this as a tactic that "helps the town". Just way too early for that.

For me, he is playing the same exact way he did last game. I was suspicious of him last game, but considering that is how he played when he knew he could absolutely prove himself good, his play today doesn't seem too strange for me. I am not ready to clear him, but I also not ready to accept his posting so far as a valid reason to lynch.
