    In other news, one thing me and the mods noticed from the last game was that the main thread was quite slow to get going with chatter. We deliberately didn't release it early as we wanted chat to happen around the detailed OP we'd left and we thought by releasing it early all the chatter would dry up too soon. But even releasing it on Sunday (albeit early in the day), we still found the chatter slow, and we put that down to everyone having a backroom. Any questions that might have been posed on-thread under normal circumstances, were being posed in the backroom instead, and that left the thread itself a lot quieter. That's maybe no bad thing in itself as too many posts can be off-putting, and I still like the idea of giving backrooms to all. But just something for the next mods up to maybe take in to account before deciding if to give backrooms to all / and if to release OP early or not.

    IIRC the SK game was still a high posting game though wasn't it? I for one was happy enough with the slow posting for the first day or 2. It's always daunting to face a thread with 500 posts in it from day one. You're always stuck between 'oh **** do I read everything in case there was something important in there' or '****it it's all gonna be fluff and nonsense anyway so I'll just skip it and join in at 10am on day 1'.

    I think that's a side effect of giving nearly everybody a role that they need to protect. If you have tons of NRVs, they drive the chatter in day0 and the roles blend into that chatter to increase post count. Lack of NRVs, lack of chatter. IMHO

    Good point actually. In fact on day 0 of the last game it was the wolves primarily driving the chatter on a read back, which was a nice change.

    But yeah, as NRV... ah I'll leave it there - when do I EVER stay quiet :pac:

    Stephen King game was quiet enough up until about lynch time of day 2.

    There were then almost 2.5k posts in the next 48hrs.

    It literally exploded.

    Yes, ended up one of the largest games (but also the longest, so not sure where on the days/posts ratio where it'd stand), but the first day or two we were conscious of people not talking much. Agree though, it's not *necessarily* a bad thing to have a slow start.

    A bit of bad luck?


    But that's not luck. Those were all calculated decisions by whomever captured a wolf. People knew what to look for and it paid off.

    Is it just me or is being a wolf getting harder? I feel like wolves are getting spotted more and more regularly during the last few games. Not always the full team of wolves, but we are all very sharp at seeing wolfy tells.

    I think playing as a wolf definitely has, but the standard is way higher for them too, like average wolf play gets spotted immediately, but the likes of Lordy, sK and Guff can coast for days under little pressure.

    The first 10 games went 7-3 village, the next went 3-7, and then 4-6 so we actually have more wolf wins overall, and 13 of the last 20 going evil.

    That's counting the Mogwai win too, but its majority either way.

    Sometimes yeah ('specially in the case of P*), but not always. SK wasn't wolf-hunting when he offed Sully. ALC wasn't wolf-hunting when he peeked Lordy.

    No but they suspected they were good targets to kill.

    I was pretty surprised how quickly we got picked apart in the SK game. I was sure we'd stayed apart then suddenly all these threads start being pulled at...

    In the end, I was concerned the voting blocks would get you, as Rikand kind of proved.

    Most nights ye voted all on the one person, or one or two off on counter wagons and once the numbers dwindled if someone looked at the votes I reckoned ye might be caught that way.

    Going to have to pass on this game, I'm afraid - though the theme is really tempting

    I might ask for DR access during the week if I have the time

    Ah yeah I'll make the 5 posts/day minimum but just wanted to give ya a heads up that I would probably be at the lower scale of active participants in case ya had others who were looking to play instead and I was blocking up a spot for them.

    Why did it target Lord? He had him as a roled player on the 26th at 14-16
    And Id him as a wolf the night he targeted him
    I don’t think that was lunck I’m 50% sure that suebhad spoted hin
