Team scum has achieved parity and hence wins

Congratulations to Kilava (Gem) and Gait (Grief)

Scum two games in a row, we cannot have that!

I’d be down for another game, but not sure I’m up for modding.

It's either vote for gait if he's about to get modkilled or we could vote no lynch I guess - How much time until he's modkilled? Path-Shaper can you confirm?

Heh, can’t help but read it that way :p

Because it's circumstantial and easily defensible? :harhar: Jk I definitely won't be making that mistake again.

Safe to say that even though people kept accusing me of playing badly and doing stupid things (though some of that was Gait and Kilava :p ), I had a much better game overall than the last one :)

Well you did a good job from my perspective, because I found you very annoying. :D

Much for my in-game arguments otherwise, I thought that the game was balanced (though guards are very swingy in small M&P games). Despite a successful heal, which is pretty uncommon, scum ended up winning.

The small piece of feedback I'd give about the setup would be about putting role clues in the flavour text. Clearly stating the roles cuts down on meta speculation but reduces the room for fake reveals; not stating the roles at all leaves more room for fake reveals but can lead to people making decisions just on "do I think that would be balanced?". I find that putting them in the flavour text kind of creates this weird middle ground where roled town can often PI themselves through information that the killers have no way to know, and to fake reveals justified by pieces of flavour text. And then you have to build your arguments around this meta element etc. I'm not sure about other people's preference, but personally I'm not that keen on the effect it has.

It was a ton of fun playing again. Thanks so much for running the game!

Smaller games are almost harder to balance, because people's expectations are very specific. You did good.
