    I was sad when DF died :( then I was sad again when jalmont died ):

    But other than that it was a really fun game. I loved how HD got half the game against him by like c2 lol. I'm also glad nobody sold anybody out to anybody from within the alliance!

    General Spoon’s comments will appear like this.
    theangryscientist’s scant few comments will appear like this.

    This game was a followup to Mafia360, in that it all players were neutrals who needed to kill 3 other neutrals. HP was added to facilitate more ways to kill people than “having the most people who are willing to vote with you.” The unicycle system was chosen to keep the game flowing quickly. Additionally, all of the roles were rather powerful in some way.

    If your section isn't as long as some of the other players, that doesn't mean that we think you did nothing. It just means that we are forgetful.

    Metal Bagon - Died Cycle 1
    Show Hide
    Dear Larry,
    You are Lt. Surge.

    A former member of the military, your Electric Pokemon would help you out in battle by paralyzing your enemies. Currently a gym leader in Vermilion City, your gym is filled with wastebaskets and switches.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Give <alias> First-Aid.” You will restore <alias>’s HP using the First-Aid you learned in the army. If <alias>’s HP is greater than or equal to half of his Max HP, you will restore 6 HP to <alias>. If <alias>’s HP is less than half of his Max HP, you will restore 8 HP to <alias>. Because it is hard to apply First-Aid to yourself, you may not target yourself.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when Eragon, Tommy Pickles and Watson are dead.

    Role Comments: One of the two healers in the game. Additional health is restored when the target is below half of their max HP, to make it less impossible to heal people.

    Player Comments: Metal Bagon gave his alias to somebody, perhaps TalkingLion. TalkingLion (maybe) told Metal Bagon’s alias to HD, and HD made certain that Metal Bagon was the first casualty.

    Dear Terra,
    You are Blue Eyes Toon Dragon.

    Created when Maximilian Pegasus sucked one of Seto Kaiba’s Blue Eyes White Dragon into Toon World, you are a cutesy, small cartoon representation of an actual Blue Eyes White Dragon.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Ask Pegasus about <alias>.” Staring into the depths of <alias>’s soul, Pegasus will tell you how much HP <alias> has left at the end of this cycle.

    Because you can attack Life Points directly, your attack will ignore any “bodyguard” type roles who may be protecting your target.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when Theodore Roosevelt, Firekeeper and Harman Smith are dead.

    Role Comments: If I had to pick a weakest role in the game, it would probably be this one. While it can hit through bodyguards, its attack is still only 3. It also had a current HP inspection (hereafter referred to as “CHP Inspect”) to make it a bit more powerful. CHP inspects were sprinkled around the game with the assumption that they would be somewhat useful, and they were.

    Player Comments: When Ranger shared his role with HD, he accidentally left in his alias. So he kind of ended up working with HD because of this, but never did get sheet. Then zorbees asked HD to lynch one of his enemies, and HD chose Ranger, which allowed the hilariously retarded (and desperate) campaign to smear HD to gain ground.

    Infinity.Cypher - Died Cycle 2

    Dear Rapidash,
    You are Sarah Palin.

    The running mate of Republican John McCain in the 2008 U.S. presidential election, you were once governor of Alaska. Unable to get enough of the spotlight, you have a show on The Learning Channel.

    Because of your inexplicable popularity, your vote towards lynches will count as 4. However, your novelty will soon wear off. As a result, your vote will decrease by 1 every time one of your enemies dies.

    While 0 of your enemies are dead, your vote will count as what you place it for, because all of the media coverage you are getting will make it impossible for somebody to “misplace” your vote. However, this will no longer apply once at least 1 of your enemies is dead, as some of the media will have gotten bored and gone home by then.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when L. Ron Hubbard, Batman and Dr. Claw are dead.

    Role Comments: This role was created because I wanted to make a role that starts off the game ridiculously strong, and then becomes nothing that special by lategame. And so I made a progressively worse mayor.

    Player Comments: Infinity.Cpyher joined HD’s alliance (the Lavanauts) pretty early. Also in the Lavanauts was his enemy, TalkingLion, but not much came of that other than Cypher damaging TL for 3 HP, which was immediately healed by HD. He was randomly inspected, and then was attacked en masse by Walrein’s alliance (the Creeps) on Cycle 2, killing him that cycle.


    Aura Guardian - Died Cycle 3
    Show Hide
    Dear Garage,
    You are Dracula.

    A count of Transylvania, you are actually and old and powerful vampire. In addition to practicing hypnosis, you are able to control animals and insane humans. Physically strong, you can even shapeshift.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Suggest <alias1> visit <alias2>.” Using your powers of hypnosis, you will force <alias1> to target <alias2> with the actions that he is performing this cycle. Because <alias1> will need time to replenish the blood you will have undoubtedly drained during this visit, <alias1> may not be the same <alias> on consecutive cycles.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Turn my undead gaze on <alias>.” Looking at <alias>, you will know, as only one who is undead can know, how much life is left in <alias>, letting you know what <alias>’s HP is at the end of this cycle.

    Max HP: 16
    Attack: 2

    You win if you are alive when Hercules, The Loch Ness Monster and L. Ron Hubbard are dead.

    Role Comments: This redirecter was, in a game of good roles, one of the better roles. Its HP and attack were lowered slightly because this role’s redirection was a great source of damage, especially if it redirected the high attack people. A CHP inspection was also tacked onto it.

    Player Comments: Aura Guardian was also a member of the Lavanauts. And he certainly caused quite a bit of trouble with his role while he was alive. On Cycle 0 he caused Jalmont to blow his hook on Dummy007. On Cycle 1 he redirected kingofkong’s inspection (and attack) to Metal Bagon, who died that cycle anyways. And on Cycle 3 he redirected Dummy007’s safeguard (and attack) to Walrein, which, as is described in Dogfish44’s section, caused Dogfish44 to die. Aura Guardian was killed on Cycle 3 by the Creeps because they had figured out the role associated with his alias.

    Dogfish44 - Died Cycle 3
    Show Hide
    Dear Llama,
    You are Hercules.

    A Greek demigod, and the son of Zeus, you are only partially immortal. This makes you far stronger and skilled than mortal men. After killing your six sons in madness, you completed the 12 Labors of Hercules as penance.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Walk with <alias>.” Going for a stroll with <alias>, anybody who attempts to target <alias> with an ability or attack will instead hit you. Going on a walk is restorative for you, and you will recover 3 HP when your walk is completed. However if a “bodyguard” role targets you or <alias>, there will be too many people on the walk for it to be pleasant, resulting in you not recovering HP.

    Max HP: 24
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when Dracula, Tommy Pickles and Buzz Lightyear are dead.

    Role Comments: A reverse martyr could be a very valuable member of any alliance. This reverse martyr had a large amount of HP, and a way to recover HP on its own as well.

    Player Comments: Dogfish44 never did get into one of the alliances, which greatly hurt his chances of winning, given how much more “alliance oriented” his role was than others in the game. He started to work with Walrein, and reverse-martyred kingofkongs on Cycle 2, causing him to take about 8 damage. On Cycle 3, he reverse-martyred Walrein. Also on Cycle 3, Spiffy was bodyguarding Dogfish44. However, Aura Guardian redirected Dummy007’s safeguard to Walrein, which in turn hit Dogfish44, causing Spiffy’s bodyguard to fail. In the end, about 26 damage was sent Dogfish44’s way; enough to kill him even if he had full HP. His trust was sorely abused, as he was not going to be let into the Creep alliance anyways, and they would have likely killed him later in the game if he lived that long.

    HD - Died Cycle 4

    Dear Zebu,
    You are Eragon.

    You are a boy who found a dragon egg while out hunting whose life was turned upside-down when Galbatorix’s minions destroyed your house and killed your uncle. Since then you have been traveling about in a series of poorly written books attempting to defeat Galbatorix.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “Heal <alias> with magic.” If <alias>’s HP is greater than or equal to half of his Max HP, you will restore 6 HP to <alias>. If <alias>’s HP is less than half of his Max HP, you will restore 8 HP to <alias>. Because one of your defining character traits is stupidity, you may not target yourself.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when Lt. Surge, Harman Smith and Buzz Lightyear are dead.

    Role Comments: The other healer role.

    Player Comments: HD created the Lavanaut alliance, and managed to make many players upset with him with his blackmail strategy that should have, by all rights, done nothing. What HD ‘blackmailed’ people with was their role name. He did not have their alias, and he did not know their abilities. Despite this, some players actually felt pressure from this somehow, and refused to work with HD later on.

    HD tried to blackmail Jalmont, kingofkongs, and Dummy007 with their actual aliases. However, when the blackmail should have worked, it for some reason didn’t, probably Walrein told them not to cave, and HD did reveal Jalmont and Dummy007’s aliases:
    [12:59] GeneralSpoon I guess they were more afraid of walrein than then you revealing their alias
    [13:00] HD_AFK nope his dick went so far up their asses
    [13:00] HD_AFK it gave them a spine

    On Cycle 2 he had MrcRanger97 lynched, as zorbees wanted one of his enemies lynched. Ranger really had little choice but to go along with HD after he had accidentally forgotten to remove his alias from his role PM when forwarding it to HD. Jalmont (and other Creeps) jumped at this opportunity, distorting what facts they had available until “HD lynched a guy who made a dumb mistake for the benefit of his ally” became “HD IS A BLACKHEART DO NOT TRUST. TRUST ME I AM RIGHT.” And some players bought what they were saying.

    Later on, imperfectluck wanted into the Lavanauts, and HD took a vote. All the other Lavanauts were for ipl being included, and HD let him in, despite not wanting to. imperfectluck promptly gave HD’s alias to the Creeps, which caused him to be lynched.

    Dear Kitten,
    You are Theodore Roosevelt.

    The 26th, and greatest, President of the United States, you have had an incredible array of occupations and interests. Outdoorsman, writer, police comissioner and the man who made the Panama Canal happen, there is nothing you cannot do.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Speak softly and find a bigger stick.” Instead of attacking this cycle, you will instead find a bigger stick, permanently increasing your Attack by 1. Your Attack can only go up to a maximum of 5. This action may not be performed on cycle 0.

    Because you are as strong a bull moose, “hooker” types roles cannot stop your attack from succeeding.

    Because you will shrug off even bullets, any attack directed at you will have its damage reduced by 1. This applies to every attack that is directed at you.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when Blue Eyes Toon Dragon, L. Ron Hubbard, and Adrian Monk are dead.

    Role Comments: One of the last roles created, this role just got better and better the later in the game it was.

    Player Comments: zorbees joined the Lavanauts, and on Cycle 2 asked for one of his enemies to be lynched, which in hindsight is probably one of the main reasons they lost momentum and ultimately lost (the other was Infinity.Cypher being killed). He increased his attack to 5 as quickly as he could, and then pounded on Walrein until he was lynched.

    Dear Hamlet,
    You are L. Ron Hubbard.

    The founder of Scientology, you are the leader of your cult. Scientology as a religion is a bunch of lies and you know it, but those fools keep giving you their money, so why should you enlighten them to the truth?

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Convert <a name> to Scientology.” You will create a cultist, who will appear on the alias list as <a name>. A cultist has a Max HP of 1, an Attack of 0, and a Vote of 1. You may have a maximum of 5 cultists at once.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Xenu commands <cultist alias> to vote for <alias>.” The specified cultist will place a vote for <alias>, with this vote being revealed at the time of update. A cultist dies after voting, and you may have as many cultists vote as you want during a cycle. This action can be performed while kidnapped.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when Sarah Palin, Theodore Roosevelt and Dracula are dead.

    Role Comments: A robot voter.

    Player Comments: Walrein was a member of the Creeps, and did help them out a bit with planning and his role. He tried to win early, on Cycle 3, by having all of the Creeps kill his enemies. This would let him win, and leave the Creeps without his role. It was going to work too, until Spiffy noticed what he was doing and stopped it. In addition, Spiffy told me that if he couldn’t stop the Creeps from attacking zorbees, he would bodyguard zorbees to prevent Walrein from winning yet.

    Walrein gave some rather bad advice (subjective) to other Creeps, telling them to not change their votes even though HD was threatening to reveal their aliases, and HD did reveal Jalmont’s and Dummy007’s aliases as a result. Walrein was the player most responsible for Dogfish44’s death, as Dogfish44 died as a direct result of what Walrein told him to do.

    Dear Cookie,
    You are Tommy Pickles.

    The leader of a group of babies, you are a one-year old child. Incredibly adventurous, you and your fellow babies will often cause trouble for others by playing where you shouldn’t be, or where you are in the way.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Play at <alias>’s house.” If anybody enters <alias>’s house with the intent to deal damage to <alias>, they will trip on the toys that you were playing with and fall down the stairs into the basement, preventing them from harming <alias>.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 4

    You win if you are alive when Firekeeper, Hercules and Lt. Surge are dead.

    Role Comments: One of the two bodyguards in the game. In hindsight, it may have been a good idea to place a restriction of some sort on them.

    Player Comments: ipl was inactive in the earlygame, and then bumbled his way into the Lavanauts. After this, he gave HD’s alias to the Creeps, hoping to get on their sheet. Unfortunately for ipl, he moved far too slowly, as Spiffy had already been a member of the Creeps for about 2 cycles or so, so they had no interest in picking up ipl at this point (if they ever would given his reputation). They had plans to kill ipl before he gave them HD’s alias, and they carried them out.

    Dear Titania,
    You are Manfred von Karma.

    A corrupt prosecutor, you have a flawless record, always getting a verdict of guilty for the defendant. While ensuring that the defendant is guilty, you have both destroyed and forged evidence.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Blackmail <alias1> to testify against <alias2>.” Under threat of blackmail, <alias1>’s vote will be counted as voting for <alias2>, no matter what <alias1>’s vote in the thread is. <alias1> will not be told of this.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 4

    You win if you are alive when Groose, Batman and Arthur Dent are dead.

    Role Comments: A persuader. It wasn’t clear in the role PM, but it applied to the vote on the following cycle.

    Player Comments: Quagsires lied low all of the game, which no offense to Quagsires, was what I expected. What I did not expect was Vintage Books to claim Quagsires’s alias as his own, causing Quagsires to be down to 5 HP in no time. He limped along for a few more cycles, until the Creeps blew a lynch to take off his remaining 3 HP.

    Dear Squall,
    You are Harry Potter.

    The boy who lived, you are a kleptomaniac student of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. A near death experience when you were young left you an orphan with a bizarre scar on your forehead.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Rob <alias>.” Donning your invisibility cloak, you will take <alias>’s full role PM from him.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when The Loch Ness Monster, Dark Helmet and Groose are dead.

    Role Comments: One of the two full inspectors in the game.

    Player Comments: Ace Emerald worked with the Lavanauts most all of the game, and was eventually killed by the Creeps when they discovered his alias. Though, granted, at the start of Cycle 4 they thought he was at low HP, when he was actually at full HP. It then took them until Cycle 6 to finish him off, as not all of the Creeps who said they were attacking him actually were.

    Dear Soap,
    You are Darth Vader.

    Formerly known as Anakin Skywalker, you were once a powerful Jedi before you were turned to the Dark Side. After an injury that nearly killed you, the suit that you wear is the only thing that is keeping you alive.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Force choke <alias>.” Using the force to choke <alias>, he will be unable to perform any actions this cycle due to a lack of air. You cannot target the same <alias> on consecutive cycles, as <alias> will have an inhaler ready the following cycle.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when Dark Helmet, Firekeeper and Adrian Monk are dead.

    Role Comments: One of two hookers in the game.

    Player Comments: pokemonrocks777 played the game a bit, doing some things. Then he became inactive for a bit, and Engineer Pikachu was subbed in for him. Engineer Pikachu also did some things, and then eventually died. I don’t know a whole lot about what these two did, I guess.

    pokemonrocks777, upon being told he was subbed out, promptly pasted his role PM in the thread. Thankfully, Superpluff was online to delete his post before it could be seen, and he ended up blacklisted for this stunt.

    Dear Whale,

    Raised by intelligent wolves since you were young, you are more wolf than woman yourself. Your Fang and your ability to make fire have kept you alive. Accompanied by your packmate Blind Seer, the two of you have been making your own way in the world.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Keep a watch by <alias>.” Keeping to the shadows, you and Blind Seer will watch over <alias>. If anybody approaches <alias> with the intent to deal damage, you will draw your Fang and, together with Blind Seer, drive the attacker away.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 4

    You win if you are alive when Tommy Pickles, Blue Eyes Toon Dragon, and Darth Vader are dead.

    Role Comments: The other bodyguard in the game.

    Player Comments: Galladiator was somewhat active, but then I learned that he would not have IRC access for a whole week, so Spiffy was subbed in. Spiffy joined up with the Creeps, and sorta revitalized them. He also stopped Walrein from winning, thereby leaving the game, on Cycle 3. Spiffy had great input in their planning, though he often attacked somebody different than he told the Creeps he was attacking.

    Dear Lemonade,
    You are Watson.

    An artificial intelligence, you were created to answer questions in the way a regular human would ask. As a test of your abilities, your creators, IBM, had you participate in Jeopardy with its champions, whom you destroyed.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “Postulate and analyze” In the body of the PM you are to write a statement that can be said to be either “True” or “False.” This statement may not contain more than two aliases, and it may only contain one Smogon name or role name. This statement will be displayed publicly in the update, but only you will be told whether the statement is True or False.

    Because you are a machine, people think nothing of you. As a result, your vote in lynches counts as -1.

    Max HP: 18

    You win if you are alive when Batman, Lt. Surge and The Loch Ness Monster are dead.

    Role Comments: Nostradamus and negative voter.

    Player Comments: Fatecrashers was another member of the Lavanauts. He could have asked some really cool things with this role, as the restrictions on it may as well have not existed if he was willing to abuse to ordering of the playerlist and creative enough (he would have been allowed to indirectly ask about more than his restrictions allow him to ask about). He only did this once though. His alias was eventually found by the Creeps, and they lynched him off.

In addition, you will be able to tell whether a person was using an ability on <alias> or if they were attacking <alias>.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Send Robin after <alias>.” Robin will stick to the shadows and follow <alias>, learning who <alias> targeted this cycle. In additional, Robin will be able to tell the difference between an ability being used and an attack being performed.

    You win if you are alive when Watson, Sarah Palin and Manfred von Karma are dead.

    Role Comments: An improved tracker and watcher, able to tell if an ability or attack is used.

    Player Comments: I never did get to learn how useful this role could be, as Ditto never targetted anything worth mentioning with it. Ditto was a bit inactive in the earlygame, and at some point the Creeps picked him up, and he helped them plan some. He then won.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Shoot <alias> in the balls.” Using your Schwartz ring you will fire a laser at <alias>’s balls. <alias> will be in so much pain that he will be unable to complete any actions that he was performing this cycle. You may not target the same <alias> on consecutive cycles, as <alias> will be covering his balls in fear on the following cycle.

    Max HP: 18

    You win if you are alive when Darth Vader, Harry Potter and Arthur Dent are dead.

    Role Comments: The other hooker.

    Player Comments: Jalmont was an early member, one of the founders, of the Creeps. He took it upon himself to begin a half-baked smear campaign against HD, which usually got him booted from the chat for spamming in all caps. It did eventually gain ground, though more through a mistake HD made than anything Jalmont was doing right.

    When Jalmont refused to cave to HD’s blackmail, HD revealed Jalmont’s alias, and Jalmont got down to 4 HP before too long. Spiffy protected him for a few cycles, and without that protection he would have died. Then Spiffy won before his bodyguard priority came up, and Jalmont was left without protection, and Vintage Book’s attack killed him.

    One of the greatest detectives in America, you suffer from crippling OCD and germaphobia, in addition to other phobias. Despite this, the San Francisco Police Department routinely consults you on homicide cases.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Investigate <alias>.” Using your detective skills, you will deduce <alias>’s Smogon name.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Obsessively watch <alias>” You will watch <alias> and how he moves, and determine what his HP is at the end of this cycle.

    You win if you are alive when Dr. Claw, Darth Vader and Theodore Roosevelt are dead.

    Role Comments: An alias->Smogon name inspection, as well as a CHP inspection. The alias->Smogon name inspection is pretty much a role name inspection, assuming that you know what role names all the players have, like you would if you had access to one of the alliance sheets.

    Player Comments: Layell mostly sheeped his vote to whatever the Creeps were voting. He was really close to winning; if Darkpenguin67 had not been hooked on Cycle 7, TalkingLion would have died, and Layell would have won.

    Because you can understand all languages because of the strange fish in your ear, and this happens to impress some people, your vote in lynches is worth 1.5.

    Role Comments: This was probably the best role in the game. A CHP inspection, some HP recovery, extra HP, extra attack, and a more powerful vote.

    Player Comments: Despite his WC being fully compatible with all member of the Lavanauts, Vintage Books did not want to work with them anymore when the Lavanauts tried to lynch RaRe555, as he was instead working with RaRe555, who was a Creep. He must have not realized that RaRe555 was working with people who needed to kill him. If he had stayed with the Lavanauts, things could have gone far different, given how powerful his role was. Instead he was taken in, and then killed when he was no longer needed.

    Dear Pioneer,
    You are Harman Smith.

    A wheelchair-bound old man, you are actually a skilled assassin. Rarely going on missions yourself, you prefer to have your 7 subordinate personalities take over for the job. Its rather complicated.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Miss <alias>.” You will fire your sniper rifle at <alias>, intentionally missing him. From how high <alias> jumps, you will determine what his HP is at the end of this cycle.

    The first time that you are inspected, other than to find out what your HP is, that inspection will fail. Every time you have lost a total of 6 HP, this protection against inspections will renew itself.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 6

    You win if you are alive when Arthur Dent, Eragon and Blue Eyes Toon Dragon are dead.

    Role Comments: This role was given a high attack power, as well as a CHP inspection and some protection against inspections.

    Player Comments: ginganinja was recruited by the Creeps, and while he worked with them, he usually attacked whomever he felt it would be best for himself to attack. His IPV was never actually broken.

    Dear Caboose,
    You are Mike Rowe.

    Host of the show “Dirty Jobs” on the Discovery Channel, you travel to all kinda of places and meet all kinds of people. People who are doing dirty jobs. There are very few kinda of muck that you have not encountered.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Show with <alias>.” <alias> will appear with you on Dirty Jobs, doing a dirty job. All the grime will keep away anybody who was going to use an ability on <alias>. However, somebody intent on inflicting damage will look past the grime and deal their damage to <alias>.

    Max HP: 21
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when Buzz Lightyear, Groose and Dr. Claw are dead.

    Role Comments: One of the two safeguards in the game. In hindsight, they should have probably had a restriction of some sort.

    Player Comments: Darkpenguin67 voted with the Lavanauts for awhile, and then started to vote with the Creeps. I am uncertain as to why. When HD revealed Dummy007’s alias, Darkpenguin67 mostly attacked and safeguarded him to ensure the attack would hit.

    Dear Basket,
    You are Dr. Claw.

    The leader of the global crime syndicate known as M.A.D., nobody knows what you look like. Though you have an extensive surveillance network and agents located everywhere in society, Inspector Gadget manages to thwart all of your schemes.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Focus on <alias>.” You will direct your camera network to focus on <alias>, and will determine his role name.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Send a M.A.D. doctor to <alias>.” One of your agents will, disguised as a doctor, perform a check-up on <alias>, telling you what <alias>’s HP is at the end of this cycle.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when Adrian Monk, Sarah Palin and Mike Rowe are dead.

    Role Comments: Role name inspection and CHP inspection.

    Player Comments: TalkingLion was an early member of the Lavanauts, and then he suggested to HD that he mole the Creep alliance that was being formed, as they were talking to him looking to recruit. HD agreed, and TalkingLion joined the Creep alliance. I do not think that TalkingLion knew how good of a move joining both of the large alliances was. He did send some information back to the Lavanauts, though it was pretty much only aliases. I do not believe that he was withholding information, rather that he is just not a good mole. He was also an inactive player, and almost managed to lose despite being in both the alliances that formed.

    Dear Sudan,
    You are Groose.

    The most muscular, most handsome man in Skyloft, you and your pompadour are used to getting your way. You have loved Zelda, the daughter of the Headmaster of the Knight Academy, for some time now, but she does not return your affections.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Get <alias> out of the way.” You and your cronies will board <alias> up in a cave, where he will stay for all of the following cycle. While <alias> is in the cave, he may not perform actions or have actions performed on him, and any vote that <alias> makes in the thread will not be counted.

    If you have a person who is kidnapped, you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Rough-up guest.” You will smack whoever is kidnapped around a bit, dealing 4 HP damage to him.

    Max HP: 18
    Attack: 2

    You win if you are alive when Manfred von Karma, Mike Rowe and Harry Potter are dead.

    Role Comments: The only kidnapper in the game, it could also inflict respectable damage to the person who was currently kidnapped. Because of this, it had a lower attack than normal.

    Player Comments: RaRe555 was recruited by the Creeps, and worked with them until he won in the end.

    Dear NPR,
    You are Buzz Lightyear.

    A toy Space Ranger, you were taught by your friends to see who you really are. A flashy show-off and braggart, you care deeply for your friends and your community, and will go to great lengths to protect them.

    At any time you may send General Spoon and theangryscientist a PM titled “CX - Shield your eyes <alias>!” If anybody tries to use an ability on <alias>, you will scare them off by firing your laser at them. However, somebody intent on inflicting damage will not be phased by your blinking light, and will deal their damage to <alias>.

    Max HP: 21
    Attack: 3

    You win if you are alive when Mike Rowe, Hercules and Eragon are dead.

    Role Comments: The other safeguard.

    Player Comments: Dummy007 was an early member of the Creeps, and he was paranoid as hell. At one point when his HP dropped to 15, he was worried that HD was behind it as being dropped to 15 HP put him into lynch range. He refused to be blackmailed by HD, so his alias was posted in public. He was attacked every night by Darkpenguin67 for a while, but eventually won.

    Thank you, tas, I agree that I am super duper!!!!

    #submarine was a good channel; we arranged many a LoL game in it

    I followed this game's progression but didn't make any efforts to have behind-the-scenes knowledge (rare for me, I think it was because I was so busy actually playing for once that I didn't really have much motivation...). Seems like it went pretty well, though like any game like this it all comes down to getting in alliances and working with them :x
