The people of London heard the rifle shot from the window across from Baker Street and knew that someone had killed Dr. Watson from there. Before the building's denizen could escape, they swarmed in, led by Inspector Gregson. In less than ten minutes time, the man who had been Moriarty's right-hand man was led from the structure in manacles.

Tina, Sebastian Moran, Mafia Usurper, has been lynched and the town has won.

I will do points in the morning. I'll say this much... I was not expecting town to make this kind of a comeback after losing so much early on. I designed the mafia team as weaker, with one symp and one mafia working against another. Usurper is a role I had wanted to use for a long time.

 

So I packed the town with roles that could potentially backfire to offset all the town strengths. The governor could have pardoned scum, if they were mistaken about someone's alignment. The vig shot could have killed town. The miller might not have claimed immediately, and might have gotten viewed. (Not everyone has read the Little Book of Darthe, and one or two players have actually posted their disagreement with said book in the past.) Out of all the backfires I put in, only the gladiator and the lovers wound up actually working against town. And the mafia team didn't hit the jackpot of killing Turin along with Pral until it was too late to help them. After all that, Darthe suggested I make the town weaker still, so I made the doc non-self-protecting (another thing I had been wanting to try sometime), and changed the masons from Holmes and Lestrade to the two lovers.

 

Also, everyone seems to have badly misinterpreted the detective role. While people found the role on Epicmafia, no one seems to have checked the DM member-created roles thread. The detective sent in the cop views, and the cop then got the results. When Holmes died, Lestrade then sent in his own views. It's kind of like how Holmes in canon would do investigations for the police, and then let them know who the culprit was or wasn't, but he had no official authority to make an arrest.

Thane did spew the whole team like I said... He just added Ithi as extra.

 

I did have a sure town read on Chae and I think it was very well-founded.

 

I also had very strong Mafia vibes on Turin when I called the shot on him. Chae must have read me town there but she should tryst her own instincts over mine cause they're better.

 

Sorry about the emo guys. Having really tough times.

What seriously frustrated me was that town didn't help me.

 

*sobs*

 

I had to point out every single protown thing I did. One would think someone mention it but no.

 

Banged my head to wall most when I got fos'd for staying up to consolidate. But then Rags explained he didn't read the rules. Rags you're a great player man (and kudos for being level headed enough to consider my scum leans even when reading me lolscum) but srsly read the rules lol.

I minded you least I think despite flipping out on you. I knew you were scum and had no better way to keep me discarded. Been seriously angry at Tsuki and Turin. Tsuki the most.

 

And yea the

 

You scum you scum you scum was grating.

BTW. Irene Adler is totally town according to canon.

I made her the symp partly because I found the King to be the best fit for governor, and she was in opposition to him in canon. The other part was a nod to noncanon. In the Downey version, she works for Moriarty. In the Cumberbatch series, she is working with Moriarty.

 

Then there is Elementary, where she actually is Moriarty. Which I think is ridiculous, btw.

Well played Town :D Had me worried for a bit that Tina was going to pull it off when Csarmi and Turin started arguing, again :)

    • This is how I always imagined them handling the use of the OP. And with CGI, I think it can be done well. I've always envisioned it like ribbons of light, a different color for each part of the OP, being actually woven in different patterns for different weaves.   Yes, learning the truth caused many of the Aiel to go crazy, like Sevanna's first lover, and many others to totally abandon the Aiel way of life (forget what they call it). And I think they need to show the Emonds Fielders' each having a couple stops along their way to Baerlon and Tar Valon, to give us a good sense of how long of a journey it is.     Well, if they're gonna have "pillow friends out the wazoo", they'll have nudity. It's unfortunate that they will have to pander to the PC crowd and it really is a sad commentary on modern society that we can't enjoy a tv show/movie without nudity. But I think they need to choose the scenes carefully. Like it's one thing to see Aviendha running off nude to Rhuidean, but not dignified Moiraine. Just showing her bare shoulders will be enough to know that she too, has to go nude. I will be very upset if they mix in real world cursing with WoT style cursing. It is a big part of RJ's world building and helps to set it apart as alternative world. And I believe "bloody" is a curse word in the UK.     Not saying I agree with polygamy, but if you can have homosexuality, why not polygamy? Besides the fact that it is totally accepted in Aiel culture. But I think they can do as independent trysts, with Min being the one he finally stays with. I don't think they should cut any of the 3 relationships because they are important in the development of the characters, and where Elayne is concerned, Rand's feelings for her impact his decision in dealing with Rahvin because he knows if he allows his feelings for her to become public, she will become a target. (Personally, I would really like to keep Elayne's pregnancy because there was a lot about it I found amusing.) I would really miss the scene when they all bond Rand and become aware of his love for them. I thought it was a beautiful scene, but I know we can't have it all.   The use of the Bowl of Winds is what finally checked the Dark One's control of the weather. It was a major victory for the Aes Sedai and Wind Finders, so I think it needs to stay in. Shadar Logoth and it's consequences (Mat accepting the dagger) is already pretty important, I think. Fain will probably be important for the first season or so, but then I say kill him off.   I hope they don't sacrifice the development of the main characters for the sake of time or big action/battle scenes. The growth of our main characters and their friendship bonds are one of the things that sets WoT apart from most other fantasy books I've read. It's actually what I love so much about Harry Potter and why I can watch those movies over and over and have read the books twice. I just fell in love the with the characters and their devotion to each other.  
    • Oh I didn't know those weren't all the titles
    • now remember author's name; P L Travers, pseudonym of Helen Golf.     as far as I recall, Compulsion was never done through any indirect means anytime in this series.   my impression of Mary Poppins was that she tried to make the children ethical; not necessarily try to control them.
