2. Roles and Factions

APPARENTLY ONE OF THE IMAGES IS INVALID ON SF OR SOMETHING. TOO LAZY TO REPLACE IT

First things first: I don't think this game was significantly imbalanced. Yes, Raymond was very unlucky that he got half-randed and hooked. Yes, Jace, Kaczynski, Father, Obi-Wan, and Romeo/Juliet were all strong roles. Yes, I probably should not have given Red the only access to an actual bonus kill. Yes, perhaps there were 1 or 2 too many hooks. But at the same time, this game ended the way it did due to player decisions, and most everyone I've talked to has had different opinions about which faction was the strongest. And as a reminder, the only person I've talked to that thought Green, the only winning faction (in a landslide, mind you) was Haze.

Also, something not as serious because less people were mad about it and stuff. Yeah, not all the characters are from Magic. In fact, only 6 out of 16 are. Personally, I thought it was more interesting to have each faction have a protagonist and antagonist that displays traits of each color, plus a Magic character. I also wanted the game to be 22 players (4 aliases per faction), in which case all the extra roles would have been MtG characters (I was thinking the praetors because some Phyrexia love was sorely missing, but alas). I'm sorry if anyone felt misled by this.

White

No rest. No mercy. No matter what.

Spoiler ()


Blue

The fatal flaw in any plan is assuming you know more than your opponent.

Spoiler ()


Black

Greatness, at any cost.

Spoiler ()


Red

Of course you fight fire with fire. You should fight everything with fire.

Spoiler ()


Green

The land gives up little, but we are masters of persuasion.

Spoiler ()


Eldrazi

The emergence of the Eldrazi isn't necessarily a bad thing, as long as you've already lived a fulfilling and complete life without regrets.

Player Analysis will come later-ish.

The final part, modified slightly from what I said in IRC (generally just a bit more detail)

eclipse: Played well and did pretty much everything she should have even though I disagree that my game was imbalanced
Kaoz: Played well other than not being able to read rules, v. active
Domu: Was pretty inactive (probably due to timezone) but followed orders well enough

Kevin: Tried to blackmail a potential ally and got fucked for it. Got his teammate killed because he let other people tell him what to do.
Obviam: inactive, only thing he did was trick Hika into giving him his alias (which was hilarious)
Rothene: very talkative but was randed N1 due to Kevin being a bad teammate

Shinori: inactive
Proto: talked to a few people early on then went inactive
Haze: Lied to Rein because he suspected Rein would betray him, only person to realize that Red and Blue were being tools

Rein: Put all his eggs in one basket and got used by Snike all game even when it was apparent Snike had no intention to team with him
Hika: idk, inactive?
Sho: Randed N1, was talkative iirc
Psych: Randed N1 but made the best move by being "definitely not Psych" according to eclipse

Snike: game MVP
StSS: followed orders
Mysterio: followed orders and made the decision to be an asshole

Raymond: Played well but had bad luck

Awards

Best White: eclipse
Best Blue: Rothene
Best Black: Haze
Best Red: Psych
Best Green: Snike
MVP: Snike
Worst Luck: 2/3 of Red's aliases dying on N1 and the third being kidnapped
Best Luck: Obviam greeting Hika as a random living alias during like D2 and it happening to be Hika's
Worst Move: Kevin trying to blackmail eclipse's team (?)
Best Move: Snike telling Rein that Psych told eclipse all of Red's info
Best Post: eclipse singing

Snike's entry says nothing but "game MVP". Thanks for being so descriptive, since now I have absolutely no idea what he did or why he is the MVP at all.

He had every faction except black dancing on his strings.

That's really all there is to it.

That makes me sound like a puppeteer.

It was more like I captured the queen while no one was looking.
