Roll on tomorrow. Let's see how confident you are at the end of the phase. Are the jitters setting in yet?

The only thing jittering is my lynching hand.... It wants at that pretty neck of yours Drinking Beverage Evil_monster

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

So, out of interest, what will be your excuse when you fail the investigation (or I pass it)?

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....

Here's how this is going to go down... Either I'm investigated and vindicated, or you kill me, and I'm vindicated. Either way, you're getting lynched tomorrow, so you can talk big tonight all you want. Wink

My money is on a reindeer corpse being found in the early morning hours. Been nice knowing you folks!

A reindeer corpse? You're planning on killing me then? Ballsy, I'll give you that. Killing me will out yourself.

We're not playing by majority vote. We're playing by plurality vote (If one player has 3 votes to get lynched, and no other votes are cast, that player is lynched by default of having votes)

I think I'll step in to clarify on some of the things that happened, considering I've been harassed and criticized about it.

There were 7 votes to lynch cjlr. However, cjlr was the terrorist. He could sacrifice himself to kill another player. Cjlr sent in his action to me at 9:56, four minutes before the phase deadline. Because cjlr killed himself, he could not be lynched. Therefore, the votes to lynch him were no longer counted. However, a lynch was still possible because there were existing votes for other players (see my response to Dark Light above.) There was 1 vote for Nach and 1 vote for Hughsie.

Earlier in the phase, Nach had voted to lynch Hughsie. Afterward, Hughsie voted to lynch Nach. Later in the phase, Nach changed his vote to lynch cjlr. His vote was permanently changed (his vote for Hughsie was not counted, because it was a vote he had changed.)

In past mafia games when a tie would have happened, the first vote(s) cast would be the first counted.

I was told that if I would have made separate entries for this situation, the situation would have been okay. However, I did not have the time to post separate posts on the actions that happened. Cjlr sent in his action at 9:56, literally four minutes before the phase's deadline. I had less than four minutes to finish typing the original entry, and to add the actions of cjlr to the entry as well. So instead, I put the entire entry in chronological order; in the order that it all happened, based on cjlr's action.

Regardless, I don't really see the difference in posting separate entries. The same events would have happened, in less than 4 minutes (there was only a minute or so remaining once I had finished the entry) and the chances of someone changing their vote almost immediately weren't very likely. Even if two entries would have been posted, I still probably would have gotten the same responses from players.

I didn't think to put the tie-vote rule in the OP because it's rarely happened in games. It's almost happened in a couple, and from observing those games, I made my decision in this game.

I can't really stress how much it means to make a game and host it. I even began hosting this game without any sleep, because of how tight my school schedule has been. However, I don't think I will be hosting another game once this one ends. In both Mafia games I've hosted, I've been criticized and received really mean PM's from people. It's all just really uncalled for, and I could do without it.

However, for the players that have/are enjoying this game, continue if you'd like to. For those that think my ruling was shitty, I apologize.

RE: Happy Holidays: A Merry Mafia XVIII
What the mods says goes, no criticizing from me. Maybe all you hosts need to make a final rule: All rules subject to change, events and results are left to mods discretion. That cleans it all up and voila!

It's a GAME.

RE: Happy Holidays: A Merry Mafia XVIII
I may not like the outcome, but you followed the rules ferdy. Once I had it explained to me (why Gulegon's vote didn't count) I saw it as fair. I've enjoyed you hosting so far! Thank you! Bowing

Just because the person being voted for was dead does not make the votes retracted. It makes the results impossible to perform (well I guess we can hang a dead guy) but that should not have cancelled the existing votes. I still call BS, I still think it was a bad call. You are the only moderator I've ever seen make this type of call when we've had terrorists.

That being said, I still appreciate you putting the effort into the game. I just strongly disagree with your ruling.

And no, I was not one to send a nasty PM, nor would I. Now, can we continue the game?
