Title: Omelas: Day 1
Post by: ravenscape on December 02, 2017, 08:51:58 PM
With a clamor of bells that set the swallows soaring, the Festival of Summer came to the
city Omelas, bright-towered by the sea. The rigging of the boats in harbor sparkled with flags. In
the streets between houses with red roofs and painted walls, between old moss-grown gardens
and under avenues of trees, past great parks and public buildings, processions moved. Some were
decorous: old people in long stiff robes of mauve and grey, grave master workmen, quiet, merry
women carrying their babies and chatting as they walked. In other streets the music beat faster, a
shimmering of gong and tambourine, and the people went dancing, the procession was a dance.
Children dodged in and out, their high calls rising like the swallows' crossing flights, over the
music and the singing. All the processions wound towards the north side of the city, where on the
great water-meadow called the Green' Fields boys and girls, naked in the bright air, with mudstained
feet and ankles and long, lithe arms, exercised their restive horses before the race. The
horses wore no gear at all but a halter without bit. Their manes were braided with streamers of
silver, gold, and green. They flared their nostrils and pranced and boasted to one another; they
were vastly excited, the horse being the only animal who has adopted our ceremonies as his own.
Far off to the north and west the mountains stood up half encircling Omelas on her bay. The air
of morning was so clear that the snow still crowning the Eighteen Peaks burned with white-gold
fire across the miles of sunlit air, under the dark blue of the sky. There was just enough wind to
make the banners that marked the racecourse snap and flutter now and then. In the silence of the
broad green meadows one could hear the music winding through the city streets, farther and
nearer and ever approaching, a cheerful faint sweetness of the air that from time to time trembled
and gathered together and broke out into the great joyous clanging of the bells.

Joyous!

Title: Re: Omelas: Day 1
Post by: timewave on December 03, 2017, 12:32:19 AM
The obvious question is, what is tunnel tracking?

When a play constant votes and otherwise hassles one play to almost the exclusion of every other player.

Why do players do this?
Some they are lazy and it is easy to do.
Some they are scum and they do it to look busy and scum hunting when they are not.
Occasionally it will be because they genuinely think the player they are harassing is scum and is somehow getting a free pass from other players.

And some players just let their bullying nasty natures get the better of them.

I am putting Diva in town too, I think her question was genuine even if MZ rates it dumb.  Plus if this game is at all similar to the Star Trek one, her reaching out to bor makes sense.

flavor is the town is wonderful but kept that way by torturing a small child. Everyone is forced to know how come it is wonderful and must decide to stay. MZ and TW are town.

You're a liability to town and skate as scum. Unless there's a better candidate, we'd do well to get rid of you day 1.

Teeths argument is that I don't look liken town Ziggy but he also says my vote on him is opportunistic coming directly after borealis. Which I flagged as the reason for voting him. It's day 1 so without creating a few eddies in the space time continuum we don't really get anywhere.

In answer to nostrums general question, I think town ignored Divas post because we didn't want to draw attention to a town special claim.
But since then Diva has claimed a town special role as neighbour.........

Neighbors are players that can speak to each other. Unlike Masons, there is no guarantee made of any Neighbor's alignment. It is up to the moderator's discretion whether they can only speak at night, or at any time.

In addition, Neighbors have been known to possess other power roles, or even have powers that belong to the group as a whole.
Title: Re: Omelas: Day 1
Post by: timewave on December 04, 2017, 01:47:52 PM
It seems that the reason Diva has outed so soon is because her 'power' can be used to translate for Bor and the Diva felt the use of this power was important enough to tell us about it.

According to Wiki a Neighbour is not always town, can, in fact, be scum.  I think Diva outed so early so that it would add cred to her being town rather than scum.

If Diva ain't lying, it would be useful to translate town or scum Bor. But as she pointed out, her claim was basically asking for a block, which makes it a pretty safe fake claim, if that's what it was.

I didn't ASK for a block ajkjskldfjasoipejoi2jemx9q2mpei12

it is NOT a super powerful role, it depends on the players who use it. if scum are gonna block me with who knows what other power roles that are walking around it means I am likely heading in a direction that means I am more correct than not.

if town block me then lolwillage

I think Teeth is just being town teeth and honestly did not realise he was evening out the vote.
And what difference does it really make? I've never seen teeth as a player who would not even the vote to save himself as either town or scum.
maybe. But it would have to be an oversight for that to be legit. Because, lynch all liars.

No one expects to get it right day one.
I is always as much a guess as good judgement.

I can't decide who to vote, but I don't like the wagon on teeth or Magicziggy.
In my town pile is Diva, Bor, Teeth, Magicziggy, gib, myself and leaning more town on Testy now.
So it is a matter of voting one of those I don't see as town.

It would be useful for Diva to make Bor her neighbor, and tell town what Bor has to say. If that's allowed by game rules. That holds whether or not Bor is town, because it would keep a Bor from sliding as scum. That said, if Diva is lying about her ability, she has already given herself an out, by being able to say she was blocked. If she doesn't claim single-use, though, then that won't hold for many days.

a town blocker can cc if I say I cldn't neighbourize bor. its a confirmable role. unless town want to pony up and want to say they blocked me cos neighbourizing bor wld be disastrous for town.

At least the images one is better than the flashing light one poor ksen had in the Star Trek game.

I am putting Diva in town too, I think her question was genuine even if MZ rates it dumb.  Plus if this game is at all similar to the Star Trek one, her reaching out to bor makes sense.

what is with a neighbouriser claim on Day 1 under no pressure?

@timewave lol buddy, we could do a 'who's on first' sketch about what OMGUS means

its called a reach out to bor and a martyristic attitude so I don't have to play the game on the defensive.

you shld try reaching outside of your knitting grp of mz and gib.



my knitting is world class tyvm

you just said 'why is neighbouriser the most important role in mafia', well I'm wondering why you made the claim in the first place 'cos iirc someone up thread (at work, month-end finance reporting so cba to quote them) indicated your claim had you as presumptive town

ATM since there are several other players who have not posted much it is kind of hard to get full reads

Players I would like to hear more from:
ksen
Gib
Mike S
YB (though I know he is new)
Nesb

Players I feel are town :
bor  (Post Restriction)
Diva (Neighborizer)
BTW Neighbor and Neighborizer are different. Neighborizer is a low level special that usually has some resctrictions on whom they can neighborize and have it go through.

I want to think nos is town but I have never seen her scum game because she has always been town in every game I was in. Granted each game is rolled separately so this is not saying she must be scum just because she rolled town all those times. Just saying it would be harder for me to pick out her scum game because I have not seen it.

Scum lean partly POE (or possibly Indy)

2. borealis - post restriction, town
3. teeming brown mass - a bit of flailing but lean town
4. Y.B - new, can't read yet, looks town so far
5. Nostrum - neutral so far
6. TestyCalibrate - why does Testy ping scummy?  don't know yet
7. divagreen - neighbor claim special (town)
8. timewave - neutral, some fos from other players but I don't see it (yet?)
9. Magicziggy - neutral
10. gib - no read yet
11. rachmarie - rach is absent
12. laughingdog - about as much as other games, no read
13. nesb - lean town
14. MikeS - yeah me.  busy today so pings from players like Testy or MZ fell on deaf ears, not online all day

I've got to read each players post string to make sense of this.

They were not simple folk, you see, though they were happy. But we do not say the
words of cheer much any more. All smiles have become archaic. Given a description such as this
one tends to make certain assumptions. Given a description such as this one tends to look next
for the King, mounted on a splendid stallion and surrounded by his noble knights, or perhaps in a
golden litter borne by great-muscled slaves. But there was no king. They did not use swords, or
keep slaves. They were not barbarians. I do not know the rules and laws of their society, but I
suspect that they were singularly few. As they did without monarchy and slavery, so they also
got on without the stock exchange, the advertisement, the secret police, and the bomb. Yet I
repeat that these were not simple folk, not dulcet shepherds, noble savages, bland utopians. They
were not less complex than us. The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants
and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual,
only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and
the terrible boredom of pain. If you can't lick 'em, join 'em. If it hurts, repeat it. But to praise
despair is to condemn delight, to embrace violence is to lose hold of everything else. We have
almost lost hold; we can no longer describe a happy man, nor make any celebration of joy. How
can I tell you about the people of Omelas? They were not naive and happy children - though
their children were, in fact, happy. They were mature, intelligent, passionate adults whose lives
were not wretched. O miracle! but I wish I could describe it better. I wish I could convince you.

rachmarie raced joyously across the Green, her horse's mane and tail whipping in the wind, while overhead colorful pennants snapped in the same strong breeze.  She was in the lead,

The horse faltered, spooked by the row of Omelans who walked solemnly toward the horses and their riders.  The sudden stop caught rachmarie by surprise, but she was able to hang on, hands dug into her horse's mane.

"What is this?" she asked cautiously.

"We are saddened by your choice, but you must do what you must do."

Choice? rachmarie wondered.  And then it struck her.  Of course, she couldn't stay.  She slipped off her horse, and planted a gentle kiss on his steaming muzzle.

Without another word, she turned on her heel and walked.

The mountains were so very far away.
