    I thought about that. I would probably say they have to choose one out of each category, and then make the categories so that one player couldn't load up on a single type. And possibly a lottery system of who gets first pick on any given ability. Then each ability can only be given to x many players.

    https://www.stufftoblowyourmind.com/podcasts/a-game-of-werewolf.htm This came up in my podcast player today and it made me realize I hadn't been on SB in ages! It's been a really interesting listen and makes heavy reference to a Wired article Rift shared with me when I first got into SB. I thought the discussion of AI lie detection and fabrication was quite interesting, especially in the context of such a stripped-down environment as a werewolf game. In the podcast, one of the hosts talks about when he hosts IRL Werewolf, he has each player choose a RP character and use that throughout. It made me think of a "build your own character" game. I'm not entirely sure if it would self-balance or not. But my thought was that each person who signs up gets the same initial PM. They get to choose a set number of elements from a predetermined list that will indicate their powers and abilities and craft a character name and concept around this. For example "Choose 1 nightly ability from the following list. Choose 2 single use abilities." After this is completed (probably a 24 hour period or a weekend), I then roll for wolves vs. innocents.
  3. Franc, I was positive you suspected me. I have no idea why you believed me. When you claimed the support, my utter shock was totally genuine. I spent the day you were asking for support trying to find any way to avoid the conversation. It was actually one of the easier days for me to participate, IRL, but I just acted like it was a normal day. And at one point, I also wondered about the "not exactly baddies" idea, even though my role PM said "baddie HQ." The set up would have allowed for a really effective subversion of the standard town vs wolf concept.
  4. I'm bummed at the lack of fanfare, but pleased at the result. Great game, Rex and Blac. I loved the tournament style. I think if we gave this set-up another run, players would play strategically earlier. I was able to interact with enough players to realize that there was a lack of understanding how to utilize the set-up. It's different enough from execution-style werewolf, that I think we would all have played a little differently. For example, I'm surprised that we only had a single player volunteering to fight. It really shouldn't have been looked on with such suspicion. Players like myself with strong support powers, but weak battle power should have tried to get into the ring early in order to avoid having to go up against a strong champ later in the game. I also think that if we had fully strategized, more players would have stayed engaged after defeat. The support concept was a great way to do that, but the set-up was unfamiliar enough to limit confidence in where to throw support and just how it worked.
  5. *silence reigned over the a anticipitory crowd and combatants.*
  6. Sinical, I'm really sorry for your loss. I hope you are doing OK. Posting for the sake of posting, because, as Rox clearly feels, there isn't much to say at this point. We just need to make our best effort to win the finals. (Since, from what I can tell, me and Rox are equally beneficial winners).
  7. I... I really appreciate that support. I don't know who offered it. Thank you.
  8. That's because I'm gonna die... Seriously, I'm very low powered in battle. Eta: oh hey, I actually am getting some time for a real lunch break. That's cool. More so vote rift so I don't get in trouble for not voting.
  9. Doctor 1 says "more tests" so those are lining up. Doctor 2 says "nothing is obviously wrong, come back if it doesn't feel better in a month. Try different toothpaste." Doctor 3 says "more images" and I'm now lining those up as well. In other words, the answer to your question is pending medical review. And I'm tired. Thanks for asking!
  10. Ok. That's a fair point. Thank you for saying something on which I could reasonably make judgement. Unvote Rox - Vote Fox for basically the same reasons as my initial vote. For the record, I'm not very powerful in the arena. I'm probably not who you want up against a serial winner if your goal is to take him out. If it's to polish off another player, ok. But I really am going to lose. Probably against anybody, as I've been AWOL and not really built connections to ask for support.
  11. The conversation is so minimal that 3 doctors appointments haven't set me back even a bit. Vote: Rox Because there really is no reason for one over another of the possible options. May change if any conversation happens before I leave to TKD.
  12. I am unlikely to be able to get on much tomorrow. I'm going to Vote Roxeon as a placeholder. However, I'm thinking on the Red question still. I'll try to get on while at work, but if I don't manage it I won't be back until after cutoff.
  13. Your last line is more what I mean by "how" to take him out. We should be pairing his battle strategically, not just throwing him into the arena with anyone else we feel like. If you aren't strong enough to feel confident in winning, we shouldn't sacrifice you to him, unless we think you are also suspicious. In general, I think we need to be more strategic in our combatant picking. I'm going to leave my vote on you for now, since your opponent has switched and I honestly don't have enough information or time before cut off to recommend a different pairing.
