[ADVANCED] World War II Mafia: JAPAN WINS!

Recommended Posts

Japan:

 

The Emperor had surrendered. But his military was unhappy with this. So a small group of officers worked out a coup (This really happened, but in RL it failed.)  Propganda encouraged the next wave, and Len took to the airwaves. The Japanese forces were notified that the war was happening again. Planes made long-range bombing runs against North America. Not just targeting the USA this time, but Canada as well. The Prime Minister was toruing Vancover when the bombs started raining down. "How? How did they get this far?" Sorcha called out before a bomb blast ended her life.

 

Sorcha, William Lyon Mackenzie King, Vanilla Ally, has been killed.

 

Meantime, in France, the country has been liberated, but there are a lot of unexploded bombs and mines lying around. Some of them are still undiscovered. So when RTE is riding into Paris for a grand parade to celebrate the liberation, his car hit a mine. His mangled body tumbled out of the car, and all he knew was a bright flash of light.


RTE, Charles de Gaulle, Vanilla Ally, has been killed.

 

Len kept broadcasting messages to the troops, and sent out messages in English to dishearten the Allies. Somehow, Japan discovered the secret of subliminal messages, so the Allied troops laid their weapons down. The Allies were finished.

 

Len, Tokyo Rose, Japanese Symp, has won the game!

 

Len has won it for Japan. This fulfills the conditions I gave him in his PM when the last of the Japanese team died. BG, Kaylee, and Ley get credit for a win. This was my first advanced game, and it was very hard for me. I have a long, long list of hindsights.

A few words about Darthe 1.0:

 

There was quite a bit of speculation as to what his role was here. The prevailing theory seemed to be that "rubber tongue" meant that the LD would see anything he said as the inverse of whether the view was honest... that is, a true statement would view as a lie but a lie would view as the truth. This wasn't how it worked. Darthe was a miller for lie detectors. Everything he said would have shown up as a lie had Time tried to view him. The only exception would be statements that weren't checkable in the first place. I wouldn't have included opinions or anything else which wasn't an objective statement of fact, nor would I have included quotes from other posts. But the whole idea behind the role was that if silver tongue can be a GF for LDs, then why can't there be a miller for LDs?

Speaking to the dead thread here, somethings I need to address.

 

1) I am not a witch.

2) I do not know compulsion.

3) Silver tongue and Cult Leader sounds like an amazing role. Give it to me.

4) Ithi, you are my mortal enemy. Every game im scum its just *ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOM* Right at me.

5) I think I could have pulled it off without the NK, but it would have taken alot of luck.

6) Love your faces.

7) Please dont dismiss all of claims from now on please. I needs them.

8) I love Monty Python.

I just went back and read some of what I did...

 

My goodness some of those lies got twisted up and just became downright stupid. Dang. Physics, 2 games one of them being this crazy and mess up sleep schedule is not the best way to do things.

 

I think I could have made it without the Jap Symp claim, but it was the best thing I could think of at the time. I had to act fast before people hammered me and it was the first thing that popped into my head. My original plan if I got called out was to claim Churchill's bodyguard with a BPV, but he died by NK so I couldnt claim that :(

Except Churchill had no bodyguard. And it would have been better for me to make the backup Truman or Eden, cause those characters would be believed more as filling in for Churchill or FDR.

Basel, in hindsight, how do you feel about the sympathizer role and your decision to give Len the ability to night kill? Was that something you felt fit the role or something of necessity given the circumstances?

 

Can you also comment on your thoughts on the game's level of activity, and how this hurt or helped either side in different situations?

I think the activity could have been a lot better. I've never seen a game with this many replacements before. As to the symp role, I based how it worked initially on a game I played in a while ago, and it worked very well then. In hindsight, I would have given Len the loss as soon as the Japanese team all died. Whether that would have meant killing him then and there, I don't know.

Bam. Churchills body guard.

 

Right. Churchill had no bodyguard in the game. A backup, but not a bodyguard. So what do you mean by then he was dead?

    • Jaimelai! How have you been?
    • I had no idea they had official illustrations until I shared this, so cool!
    • I'm new to DM (and I'm in the Warder's Guild), but I kind of know what you mean.  I finished everything when it came out late January 2013, two or three weeks before the end of an important part of my life, when I was accepted into the University of Edinburgh for a Masters degree 15 February 2013.  As you well know (I'm still processing all you've written--nice to meet you!), I haven't left it since then.   I started reading the WoT when I was 13-14, and once I finished the WoT (at 25), I felt I couldn't go back.  I never met RJ, but my Latin teacher 8th grade was one of his former secretaries, his niece was two grades above me in our high school drama club, and one of my classmates at boarding school my high school senior year was one of his nearby neighbors.  But I was about to leave my former life and go to Scotland.  Sure, the WoT had defined high school and the moments I read the KoD during the lousy months of my Katrina exile that senior year were some of my happiest, but that was that.  I would be an adult, now, I wouldn't talk about it anymore, and I didn't want to think about it.  When I learned about DM (looooooooooooooooong before I reread--or listened to--the series), I didn't join, despite the fact we're all in love with it. Sure, I might make friends if I joined, but the WoT was over--so why prolong the agony? I only decided to join DM when I was halfway though the series last year--I think it was while I was reading a CoT (or thereabouts), and I only started talking to everyone when I was listening to a GS.    In the years after I finished--from January 2013 through December 2017--I would occasionally think of a saying or read something I had written years before and, when looking up the reference, find out that it was a WoT saying or that I had been quoting something in the series!  (Sometimes I found this out because of DM). It could sometimes be weird how much the WoT had been ingrained--I even forgot that Jak o' the Shadows was a WoT poem for some time!  But finally, the wife of one of my closest friends revealed she was a WoT fan and had decided to re-listen to the series.  (She's a seamstress, so she doesn't read, but listens to EVERYTHING).  When she learned I too was a fan, she tried hard and then eventually convinced me to listen to it instead and when I did, I realised I had forgotten quite a few details, if I remembered the general story and I'd swallowed every trope.  Occasionally, it was like jolts would come in as I listened--"So that's where that saying comes from" or "that's why I think that!"       Ending it had helped me define a chapter of my life, sure, from adolescence until my journey to Scotland.  But it turned out that the WoT was even more important to me than I thought it was--it had been a foundation stone for me.  It had helped me define life itself!  What would Mat say if he were me? It's as important to me now as it was ever, and so I'm as part of the WoT's story as much as anyone else.    I hope all I've written makes sense.  But--don't worry.  Finishing it is difficult.  And finishing it might be part of the end of your chapter.  I know I thought I was lost for several months/years afterwards.  But the story and its value will never end.
