    zorbees claimed to me as a wolf. He claimed he killed RaRe555 last night, but the flavor of kill that defeated Rare was “he just died”. Zorbees’ role pm looks like it would have a different flavor kill. In addition, he claims he can kill everynight. That “just kill” flavor kill has so far only struck on night 3 and 5. I believe this guy is a weapon passing as a wolf to be put down in lynching priority. I think we need to kill him, so lynch zorbees

    EDIT: A_G, you have reason to be suspicious of me for this post's flaws. I coppied the pm he sent me then did the

    Deadline-Update in an edit.

    ----------

    GAME OVER

    "Lynch zorbees guys! No wait lynch Aura_Guardian! No wait lynch zorbees!" screams Jigglypuffers42, becoming more and more frantic.

    "Guys it's almost deadline go vote!"...no response.

    "GUYS I'M LEAVING SOMEONE VOTE"....no response.

    "Oh" says Aura_Guardian, "Hey zorbees, feel like kicking Thorns off the island today?" (I know there wasn't an island before but bear with me here)

    "Sure, sounds good!" says zorbees, before turning and saying to HD "wanna follow along?"

    "Sure, why not. I never liked that Thorns fellow much anyway."

    At this, Thorns looks up, or rather, the many constituents making up the whole of Thorns. However...he doesn't seem able to speak at all. He can only...bark. And meow. How strange. Anyway, you all close in around him and beat him to death with your assortment of metallic parts.



    Whoa...they were sure pissed off, huh? Suddenly, however, zorbees, HD, and Aura_Guardian start laughing maniacally.

    "Suckers" they say in unison, as they reveal their true identities...




    These three stared down their three remaining enemies, Jigglypuffers42, ~NJ, and the recently released Objection. Despite Jigglypuffers42's squeals for mercy, none survived the blood(oil?)bath that followed.




    With that, THE_IRON_KENYAN and LightWolf appeared out of nowhere, as the Weapons, victorious in Inventions Mafia...did whatever it is you do when you win Inventions Mafia...

    Congratulations to the Weapons, the Winners of Inventions Mafia!

    We found you by process of elimination. (Awesome had one too many, and you were inspected as Robotic animal - kill flavor fit.) Also, BPV = we needed to lynch you.

    That was the dumbest turn around win ever. We didnt even deserve that, and it completely baffles me how everyone let it happen.

    My team totally relied on me, the battery man, to function properly and we didnt even have a way to protect the most important man on the team. I hope you learn from this and design the game better next time around.

    I hope you are talking to someone other than me here cause I had no part in designing this damn game. I totally agree the game design sucked, bring it up with Alchemator/the interwebs...I put in my time to finish this game and you got a win out of it so stop complaining.

    Anyway, there won't be a Postgame for several reasons:
    1. I have already wasted enough of my time on this game.
    2. I have no clue what went on the first few cycles (if anything)
    3. I have already wasted enough of my time on this damn game.
    4. Like anyone cares anyhow.
    5. Did I mention that I have already wasted enough of my time on this fucking game?
    6. I couldn't comment on game design, player placement, or on upwards of half of the player comments.
    7. Fuck this game.

    For what it's worth, here is the document with all of the Role PMs, and here is the sheet with all of the Roles and stuff. It doesn''t have the Smogon names attached but it's not that hard to figure out, and I'm too lazy to type over all of the names from the working sheet (interwebs put the roles in a different order on the two sheets...ugh).

    Anyway, I'm out now, after a few Awards...

    Awards:
    Best Faction: Weapons.
    Worst Faction/Players: Everyone else.

    All that need be said.

    We were luckfucked, but on the other hand they were inactivefucked. It's all fair if you ask me. And if anything, the awesome didn't deserve it after auramaster got himself lynched... And they got moled by both the wolf and us... While the boring didn't deserve it(bar pidge) I mean wtf was that nl on that day, why did NJ~ stop the X-trader lynch started by pidge...

    Also the whole no wolf thing was the worst, if you looked at the flavours for a sec, it would have been obv.

    SO yeah I don't see how the only team that worked towards winning for real, doesn't deserve the win.

    I should have won best player. (But to your credit UncleSam I think people should show you more appreciation, especially the interwebs. Without you the game would have never finished.)

    So why didn't I get best player?

    OK, my take on the game.

    I got subbed in, and quickly began working on a fake - as soon as I saw Jig's post. This allowed me to gain enough trust to not get lynched. I also soon realized I might want to try moling the Awesome - when Jig stated suspecting me/when an Awesome leader claimed. So, I claimed using a fake I had handy (I think I tricked ~NJ into helping me with it - though I could be remembering wrong.) Anyways, after looking at the spreadsheet, it became apparant that either Thorns or Darkambe8828 (Lightwolf helped with this) was a wolf. Rodan./HD had 8 batteries, more than enough to help us kidnap, stealth (tie and then kidnap again at the worst), and win. I also tried to nudge Jigglypuffers42 into lynching Thorns for us, but that didn't work, so we had to stealth it. Anyways, that's about it from me.

    I'll admit that I didn't have the creativity to change my fake after hearing about the Weapons :(, but I thought I could still mole based on three assumptions.

    1. The Boring would notice that Gunpowder isn't a Weapon. I don't know about everyone else, but in all my old History books, gunpowder is an old invention that the Chinese used for shooting fireworks off, and barely mentioned as gun fuel.

    2. The Boring would assume that any Weapon would be smart enough to claim as something less suspicious then gunpowder. The only person who pointed it out was ~NJ, and he only told me in IRC. I'm still shocked no one mentioned it in the thread.

    3. One of the Awesome would step up as village leader, once they saw that the Boring were uniting. Plus I was going on and on about how important village leaders are. Plus it was Day 2, by then almost any other village would have united. Seriously, were you guys all asleep?

    Would someone tell me where my logic's wrong?


    As for my opinion on the game...

    I can't say it much better then that. Congrats to UncleSam for his incredible job as host, trying to keep the game going, and it kinda worked because people (gasp!) were TALKING! Also, Spiffy is MVP for playing perfectly. EDIT: I was just kidding :) and US, Spiffy did play for about two hours.

    While I was alive anyway my kills managed to be right on target. I was so convinced while dead that Pidge and Darkamber were weapons. Pidge because he was being a fucking idiot and I've been assured that he is not one. Darkamber because he kept bringing up the fact that players weren't voting and saying that people who did would get lynched. And while there should never be a two village game again, I hope people learn a valuable lesson about just how dumb it was to turn this into a village vs. village thing. Staraptor Call and I were the only villagers who were actually doing a good job by staying in the background, it's my fault Staraptor Call died and I probably should have waited and let the awesome keep their vigilante but I had no idea that everyone would stop lynching.

    Also in case anyone was wondering...there were no kill priorities or priorities of any kind. All actions of the same kind just all worked. For future reference, no one use this system ever again. In fact, make an effort not to replicate any aspect of this game. Seriously.

    You know the thing about this game that makes me most sad? It finished and Overkill 2 didn't.


    I just want my name in the past games list...
