It seems to me that the only folks who would be irritated about this fact being pointed out would be the Cobbler and Villains. So I'd let the issue go if you don't want to attract attention of that sort.

The odds of such a situation arising are very tiny, but just in case, why not reach out to him? It's not like it hurts anything.
Indeed– but we've been discussing this entirely hypothetical situation for... oh... quite a long time. I think quite enough has been said, don't you?

EDIT:X'd with the phantom.

Eye seeking Mod clarification...

Boro- was I accurate when I said this?

And yes, Nerwen, I agree that the other issue doesn't need to be discussed any more. What needed to be said has been said. The truth is out there for the Bear to read if he wishes.

I think what Hakon was saying is that if something happened like the seer revealed the werebear, then perhaps we could leave him alive to either have him kill a wolf or have the wolves waste their kill on him (as they may be worried that he will kill one of them) come Night. Then we can spend the Day hunting a wolf instead. I don't know if it's an idea I'd go for, but it's not stupid. We can't expect the bear to listen to us, even if exposed, so it'd be all about luck. If the bear killed a wolf, it be more likely he did without intentionally trying, and the wolves would probably only waste a kill on the bear if their numbers were down or they had a reason to think the bear would pick one of them as his kill.

I think you all are being rather harsh on Hakon. While he hasn't caught on as quickly as some newbies, I don't think he's intentionally trying to be confusing or irritating; he probably really just doesn't understand all the rules. And while that doesn't mean he's necessarily innocent, not understanding something is no reason to attack someone. I know for some old-timers this confusion can get irritating, but you should give everyone a chance to learn. Let's not drive our newbies away from this site, okay?

Yes I did mean for the surveys to be a part of the discussion...hence why I asked for them. Anything goes, I will say though that you're playing a dangerous guessing game. To try and figure out my rationale for anything is insane. Plus to point out some was complete random drawing, and need I remind you there is another mod, who had a hand in the situation too.

So, best of luck to you in figuring it out. Figured it'd be a good Day 1 thing. Although, there are probably more beneficial ways to figure out the roles than trying to read my mind (and wilwa's)

Phantom, I think I see what you might trying to do innocently, but it seems like you're more likely to mislead innocents than to bend the bear to your will, and now that you're trying to cast suspicion on those who doubt you, you're starting to seem less trustworthy.
The bear also needs to reduce the number of villagers - more than the wolves do, even. I've played as a werebear and it's quite clear, in that position, that winning by picking the villagers off one by one is a much harder task. I don't think it's possible to fool the bear as you seem to be trying to do (or trying to look like you're trying) - the bear will certainly judge how likely xe is to be killed by the wolves at any given time and act accordingly, but xe wants to get our numbers down. If anything, the bear has less flexibility than the wolves do, and certainly no motivation to help the village.
As for the Dark Monarch being the evil we're up against, the bear is evil too, so there. :P
If Boro chose the roles according to who trusted whom, wouldn't discussing our surveys be equivalent to discussing how personal relationships or past games may have influenced the mod's role choices in another game? Unless Boro says it's open for discussion, I consider it off limits.

EDIT: X'd with two Nerwens, a Brinn and a Boro.

Well, since we have modly permission:

I have a hunch that Hakon may be dead wrong about the role-picking, and that Boro, at least, may have chosen according to our expectations rather than against them.

Day one is the hardest. I think that looking at these surveys may help us on day one. We still have well over 12 hours left to the day. Let us take a look at these surveys.
The surveys could help, but as it has been said, in passing and not openingly saying who you put down. It could be done in code or in list post about what you think of each player. However, the other thing that does come to mind is that yes, probably the people we did trust the most are wolves, but it could also be the people we distrusted in order to throw off our reasoning.

Clearly you have never seen Fea as an ordo.

Rikae, it is great that you think I am like another member but this Hansy guy sounds like a person I should not want to be like. I would also like to point out Phantom gave me the idea of using the bear. His post where he mentions the codes also talks about the bear.
The bear(Fea) in Shasta's game did kill a wolf(am still annoyed about that). But she was still out for herself.

Crossed with Rikae's 181.
...so are you saying that during the Night phase we should go over the posts and see if we can find a bear and then...what? I mean, sure one of use could find a bear but there are only a few players who could talk in PMs. Are you suggesting we leave it to the BFFs? Because they are the only ones on the side of good that can do that. No one else can communicate and its easy to say at the beginning of the Day "oh I found the bear last Night!" but its still just speculation.

Wow, I seemed to have replied a lot to Hakon. As far as all the bear stuff is concerned I'm of the opinion that the bear can be inadvertently helpful and kill a wolf or the cobbler but they can also be dangerous and kill the Ranger or Seer. I tend to treat a bear as a wolf.

Oh my bad for the confusion. Discussion of their purpose is ok, and is encouraged. Posting individual answers is not. That I will do afterwards and it will be anonymous

I seriously wouldn't even be able to tell you who voted for who as I just marked down the numbers

Wrong, Rikae. I'm not trying to trick the Bear. You're right that the Bear also likes the extra Night kill, but there are three Villains to provide it, and thus it is rather safe to gun for them. You only need one Villain alive to provide the extra kill, and so the Bear won't kill the last Villain I agree, but any Villain before that is fair game. And the Cobbler especially, as he does not even provide a kill but is simply a villager guaranteed to side with the Villains. The Bear should definitely consider slaughtering an obvious Cobbler.

Your resistance to these facts is puzzling. Even if it were true that I was attempting to trick the Bear into helping us, is that a bad thing that you would need to point out?! Seriously.... Every time you try and fight this idea you look very suspicious to me, as if you're a Wolf saying, "No, no, don't gun for us!" or the Cobbler saying, "No, don't kill my masters!"

I have done nothing but state fact. Stop trying to make it sound otherwise. Firstly, what I'm saying is correct. Second, even if it wasn't, it's obviously to the benefit of the village, so opposing it is ridiculous.

Now, as for the phantom deadline, to sum up what I said earlier: I don't think it'll go over big, since a lot of people consider last-minute voting the best part of the game. Don't expect me to abide by it.
Well you know me, dear. And I don't mean obvious hints, because I don't want to get the gifteds killed. Again, I don't disagree on any particular point of the argument, just wanted to make sure everthing was considered because, as I mentioned, some people play differently and if we're all looking around for a code (or if someone points out a code) we could miss something fairly obvious or we could get trapped by a wolf. But I don't feel like wasting more time talking about it, because there's another matter to waste our time on apparently....(Yes, that's mostly sarcasm, although it seems strangly appropriate....)

Oh, and it's not going to happen. It'd be lovely on my (and poor Boro and Wilwa's) nerves but most people aren't going to vote early, as much as I think it's a rather good idea.

The ones who got put down for distrust the most are probably now just ordinaries. What do you all think? Should we post out answers to the survey?
NO! First of all, the surveys were confidential mod/player information. Also, it's possible they are just for Boro and Wilwa to do narrations, or just so they can sit on their mod thrones and cackle. Either way, it's not for us to try to figure out the ways of the mods (in this instance anyway) and in my opinion using the information we gave the mods to figure things out? Not cheating necessarily, but cheap, and certainly funsucking. In other words, don't do it.

(Plus I don't remember all of mine anyway.)

I think that's a common newbie mistake (whether or not he did it) and I'm glad you brought it up, just so others can be made aware of it too. I know I did that as a newbie because I had no idea I couldn't, silly me. Yay for fyi's.

I'm pretty sure Boro was just interested in your theory and made a silly mistake, not tricked, but that's not the point. We do not dangle a lynching in front of the bear if we find them. If we find the bear, we lynch them, simple as that. (Of course if we've got a bear and two wolves or a bear a wolf and a cobbler that have been dreamt we can ask the bear to snag one of them for us and forestall our judgement but really, I'd prefer to lynch the bear first because there's no guarantee they'd cooperate, and unless there's only one wolf left the bear's the biggest threat anyway. A take on Hakon's theory that makes some sense, but still. I'm not really up for trying our luck, even if we have a very honorable bear.)

Hakon, if we figure out who the bear is, the wolves obviously know the same and the bear will die right away anyway. Also, the bear is the role which is among the hardest to figure out and since he is not our side, he won't reveal out of kindness.
Yup. For instance, Fea, Phantom, and others cause chaos and are weird no matter what they are, and it's our task to decide why they're acting so nuts in each individual circumstance. Some innocents (like me, though only on occasion) will place gifted hints in order to draw the wolves away from the real gifteds, but then you run the risk of having people believe your false information and ending up doing more harm than good, so it's difficult. Other people lie about their suspicions, etc., but really it's all down to their motives. (Does that make sense, like at all? Because I got interrupted a few times during this bit and I'm not sure it's clear, so feel free to ask me what I mean or whatever. Just don't try to lynch me for it, 'cause it's just not nice.)

And again. What he said. I feel like a parrot, but at least we know it's fairly unanimous.

Well, the phantom thinks the bear would do what he says... maybe phantomitis is catching.
Again, what she said.

And I don't mean to be rude, but you didn't catch me doing anything. I was just having some fun, and people decided I should die, then afterward everyone made claims of 'catching me at my obvious evil'. I hadn't even begun to consider the game's agenda, because I hadn't played in a while and just wanted to have some fun. So yes, it can be done, but don't use me as an example.

And my I use this opportunity to quite bluntly point out that my icon, whatever I decide to change it to next, is NOT a reflection of my role (unless I say otherwise or something). I'm just sayin'.

Why exactly do you think we can control the bear if we know xyr role?
I LOVE YOU~!

We can't. This discussion is just silly. (And no, Rikae, dear, I'm not directing that statement at you, so please don't be offended. You're not on the Jersey side of this cesspool. Incidentally, I think I'll watch that this morning. Yay!)

I is parrot, hear me....well, parrot. Hakon, I understand your theory but it's ludicrous. Sorry.

I'll be joining Formie in his 'I hate Day One' tent now. That is a horrible reason to vote for someone. Now (to use Nerwen as an example since he did) if she's doing it on Day Five in the middle of a serious lynch discussion I'll happily agree but toDay? Let her have her fun, and lynch someone who seems like they're being either suspicious or as close to it as possible. And right now my someone is you, Hakon. Could he possibly be the cobbler? Or just....oh, heck if I know.

I'm sure they'll all listen.
Scarily enough, I would. (Of course I mean if I was a bear I'd love to exterminate the wolves and take second place, as it were, but as it's been said once there's no second place in Werewolf so it ain't gonna happen.) And now that I've probably made Hakon think I made a wolf slip (despite me being an ordo, which just makes me giggle) I'll get on with my life.

Now of course I don't mean to be rude to Hakon but I think this circus train should be de-railed before we give the wolves any more to read while they eat their popcorn. Drop the subject now, and I might not vote you. (It's a big might right now though, so you may have to buy me a cookie or something.)



EDIT: x'd ever since Rikae said 'that is the best thing ever' in response to Nerwen's making a funny.

It seems to me that the only folks who would be irritated about this fact being pointed out would be the Cobbler and Villains. So I'd let the issue go if you don't want to attract attention of that sort.
I think I'm just upset that it's garnering so much discussion, when I honestly don't think the werebear would go for a plea bargain. It's possible, but if we get into that situation we can discuss it then.

So, best of luck to you in figuring it out. Figured it'd be a good Day 1 thing. Although, there are probably more beneficial ways to figure out the roles than trying to read my mind (and wilwa's)

And the Cobbler especially, as he does not even provide a kill but is simply a villager guaranteed to side with the Villains. The Bear should definitely consider slaughtering an obvious Cobbler.

Your resistance to these facts is puzzling. Even if it were true that I was attempting to trick the Bear into helping us, is that a bad thing that you would need to point out?! Seriously.... Every time you try and fight this idea you look very suspicious to me, as if you're a Wolf saying, "No, no, don't gun for us!" or the Cobbler saying, "No, don't kill my masters!"

I have done nothing but state fact. Stop trying to make it sound otherwise. Firstly, what I'm saying is correct. Second, even if it wasn't, it's obviously to the benefit of the village, so opposing it is ridiculous.
It doesn't benefit the village to promote false hope. If the bear guns for wolves, it will be when xe feels it will help xem, not because we ask xem to. I'm not "resisting facts", you are. The bear is not going to "ally" xemself with us, and to think of xem as an ally is not to the village's benefit. The bear may kill a wolf, but is more likely to kill an innocent, and as long as xe lives, we'll have two deaths per night. Lynching the bear early on would be the best thing we could do, and when you and Hakon run around promoting the idea that the bear is some kind of super guard dog, it makes you look very suspicious to me.

The next person to promote/continue the bear discussion (who doesn't cross with me) is getting my vote. I may or may not be kidding.


Going to tidy myself and a few things about the house. Enjoy.

Hopefully this attempt is better...

Generally discussing them is awesome, like would I chose a trusting person for _________?

And of course you may say whatever people you may trust or don't trust, or whatever you feel about a person.

I think part of the confusion was the "posting" of them...which is why I referred that Mac had it as far as actually posting the survey and your answers.

Basically, I think you are more or less correct tp. You may talk about whoever you trust or don't or fear or whoever as much as you want to. That typically happens in most games anyway. But the actual posting of your answers...no, no that I will do anonymously at the end o the game.

So bringing the discussion from the topic that has been beaten to death to this new one: surveys what do people think about them?

There is the idea that the people we trusted were made the wolves, which would be devious. But that is possibly too obvious. Then everyone would just say who they trusted and be done with it and vote for them. I'm of the mind that one of the people we trusted most is a gifted, another is a wolf, and possibly a third is the bear.

But that is just my guess.

More to phantom, and Sally can vote for me if she likes

In theory and on the surface, yeah, you can say that if you were able to convince the bear to gun for the wolves more, that would be a good thing. But the thing is, it's a crazy thing - just about as crazy as Nerwen's "please kill each other" joke - so much so that all it accomplishes is to derail discussion into the totally useless - and I admit, you've made me waste my energy with the useless for half the day as well. If that was your plan, nicely done.
The thing that makes me suspicious, though is that you should know better. I've seen you in action before, and I've seen you trick baddies. You didn't do it by pretending to give them advice (why should they take your advice?) either. I think you know perfectly well that attempting to make the bear into an ally is pointless, and that's why I find you suspicious and why it absolutely has to be pointed out - and if you want to suspect me in return, that's just fine.

If I answered I would only be rehashing the same exact things again. Whatever. Think what you wish.

In the meantime, surveys!

I said I could read everyone.

And then I said I was kidding, and that generally people I've played with before always give me a reading. Not that it is correct, but they at least make me feel one thing or another. I listed a few of them. I also said that Fea, Nerwen, and Rikae probably made my thoughts swing back and forth the most between guilty and innocent.

For players I fear- I gave the names of an entire group of players. A cookie for anyone who guesses which group.

When making a plea for their life last-minute, I can't remember exactly who made the cut, but I seem to recall stating that I'd trust morm, Mac, Brin, Shasta, and Lommy in such a situation. But naturally that would change if I'm not liking them.

That's part of my whole point- the fact that you and others even felt the need to discuss this whole Bear thing. I made a statement that I believe to be true regarding the Bear (the fact that he can help us). Even if you didn't believe the statement was true or that it was flawed, I don't see what can be gained by pointing it out and discussing it seeing as if my statement were to be accepted it would be beneficial.

Therefore there is no reason for you to have ever contested my claims (or Hakon's). It serves only to create a pointless discussion. If in your opinion my statements were flawed, they certainly weren't hurting anyone were they, so why do you feel the need to debate it and try to prove some sort of point? There is no point to prove here. Nothing can possibly be gained from supporting your viewpoint, but something can be gained from supporting mine, whether it's flawed or not.

This "useless" discussion has only happened because you and others felt the need to pick apart a plan that would be beneficial if adopted, and doesn't hurt anyone. I'm baffled as to why anyone is still talking about this.
