Mafia CLXXI: Alien Infection AAR (Town win!)

Congratulations to the town!

I have some various thoughts, but I'll let people do a little debriefing first.

I am choosing not to publicly share the scum chat thread for reasons, but here's a tidbit I found particularly amusing as the game progressed (this was D1):

Keirador, I believe you'll enjoy the dead thread: https://www.quicktopic.com/52/H/pByZPM9jtsCFg

Avoiding the condude curse, actually convincing Zoomzip of something, and catching Telleo. . . this is the greatest performance I have ever put in.

Kim I know you were sweating the rule corrections, but this was a flawlessly GMed game from my perspective. Not "good for a first time effort," and not "good given all the curveballs thrown your way," though both those things are true, just good without any qualifiers.

Woo!

Do I get to say I told you so for calling Telleo as scum after our fight? Only wish I’d followed Keir there a bit quicker. There’s a reason I pushed completely away from Telleo for most of the time between our fight and following Keir, but I’m not sure if this is the place to talk about it or not.

Great job on EM, he had me pretty fooled.

Good job guys, great game!

I also kinda dislike that the scumchat isn’t posted, but that’s personal preference I guess.

Thanks Keir. A lot went on behind the scenes here, and there were a couple consultations with Wyse and Harb for assistance with some stuff.

Also, I'll now disclose what went down with the N2 extension. Keirador messaged me that he would be out in the mountains with zero internet access. I was originally inclined to just go ahead and run the game normally, but Keir suggested I poll the town.

Zoomzip's response was "Do whatever the scum think is fair." Telleo's response was "Extend the night, I don't want to win by killing a lurker." Everyone else's responses were either "Let's just play as normal" (Keir and Dwiltse) or "I don't care either way."

Which meant whatever I did, ZZ would likely assume it had been what the scum preferred, which meant that someone being absent and who preferred which option was all potentially-readable meta data. Hence the gag order on both things, and the reason I was kinda cagey in responding to you about it, K.

It's at a minimum good practice to get the players' permission before sharing their private communications.

For the record, ultimately the town was so low-activity I don't think it even mattered. 12 hours of frantic "I know I have to get all this in because I'll be out tomorrow" participation from me would still have been more participation than actually required.
