Blood on the Clocktower PBF #2


#1925

Sometimes I would forget that the Drunk can’t be an Outsider. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

This game will really mess with you. I think it’s one of the disadvantages of PBF for the good team - lots of time for paranoia and doubt to spin alternate theories.


#1926

Yeah, but that can be offset a bit with the perfect recall available by going back through all the posts. As an evil player, you have to be perfectly consistent or you will get caught out in a lie. I knew I was suspicious as all hell simply by being one of two people claiming Saint, and since I wasn’t in any kind of private communication with my teammates, I was having to spin plausible theories like some kind of professional plate spinner.

I feel like I walked into an evil party, Scheisse

Sorry everyone on team good!

edit: well done team evil


#1928

The Butler died because I had a pretty good sense it would totally derail things honestly. Everything in this game is SO picked over, from post counts to "haha"s to length of posts and I knew I didn’t want to kill who people expected me to. It really worked out honestly.


#1929

Hahahahhahahaha oh man… that might mean more with the benefit of hindsight than it does mean I have a tell. Very specific though.


#1930

I definitely wasn’t checked out - my character choice of "burn it all down " had some internally consistency i think haha. Could just be on the inside.


#1931

Yeah, I did have the benefit of knowing you were an evil player, so maybe I was predisposed to noticing it, but man, it just jumped out at me after the fourth time you posted. It was like a text-based nervous laugh.


#1932

That’s so funny. I’ll need to be mindful of that in the future (haha)


#1933

Also I want to mention, I was the demon from the beginning. There was a lot of “demon transfer” theories and it never moved from me.


#1934

Which started to worry me when you got nominated and we didn’t have a Scarlet Woman for backup. Especially as rhys was dead, I was suspicious, and GeeBizzle had some doubters as well.


#1935

I found it interesting being a minion as your job as I see it is to look suspicious enough but not get killed. As such COMaestro played a blinder.


#1936

Oh, fun fact: I poisoned @Bradburn on night before I first nominated him. I swore the game would not end if he was killed. I was being perfectly honest! :smiley:


#1937

Shout out to @JDPftw, my fellow member of the 0 and 2 club XD.

Huge thanks again to @RogerBW for running this behemoth, I’m sure you didn’t think this would turn into a month long marathon. I’m sad to lose, but also kind of relieved that we have a resolution! I agree that less players may be a better fit for PBF.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a saint to bury.


#1938

There was an alarming amount of times that people got team evil theories right but in the noise of this many players it didn’t get enough attention creating a definite advantage for imp & co.


#1939

I secretly think the mechanics of this game make dumb luck and random chance much bigger factors than anyone wants to admit. But man, what a great way to make dumb luck and random chance feel incredibly exciting and suspenseful!


#1940

Well played people. I’m going back to my reclusive cave for a long, long sleep.


#1941

Many thanks to @RogerBW for running this, which quickly blossomed into one monster of a game. If another one starts up I’d be interested, but would definitely give preference to other people who have not had the opportunity to play yet.


#1942

Echoing the thanks for @RogerBW - this game was beastly. And thank you for indulging my theatrics.


#1943

(Which is why I left :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:)


#1944

Thanks everyone! Reading the how to play baron thing it said you have no power, cause as much chaos and distraction as possible. I think i succeeded somewhat at that even though everyone thought i was evil. Apologies to @COMaestro though for making your job harder with my “slayer” shot.
