Re: This is gonna be the thread where we talk about stuff
This is probably only hilarious to Plaid and I because Tim Shadbolt (mayor of a little town called Invercargill) is a national treasure. She just wasn't on IRC when I found this so this is for our amusement later (and I suppose anyone else who has an interest in New Zealand current affairs shows, for whatever reason).

Isn't there already someone named Eddie Brown?
Also I just realized that there is some serious implications with that as a last name.

Re: This is gonna be the thread where we talk about stuff
It's a game about lying to people and figuring out who is lying back to you.
Every person receives a role in secret, and is either part of a "town" or "mafia" team, or a third party who generally works alone. Each player has their own win condition, but generally people on the same team will have the same kind of condition to win.
Games work along day/night phases, where the day is generally spent conversing and in the night everyone is unable to post (because they are asleep) but people sneak out of their fictional houses to perform special actions on eachother.
People in the town attempt to root out the mafia players lurking amongst them by collectively voting on who to "lynch", based on who seems most suspicious, at which point that player is out of the game and their role is usually revealed to the world so you can see if you were right or not. It then moves on to night time when the mafia make their move.
Unlike Town players who only know their own identity, mafia players know who everyone in their team is and can communicate secretly at night. Their goal is to kill everyone in the town team, and every night they get to pick someone who dies, at which point day starts again (with the dead person's role being revealed etc).

This is then made more complicated by the addition of roles such as doctors, who can protect someone at night preventing the mafia from killing them, cops, who check one person per night to see if they are town or mafia, and roleblockers, who prevent other people from performing whatever action they were trying to do at night.

That's as short as I could make it and it's probably still not very good as an explanation, maybe you should just try reading one!

It is always mildly annoying to have to answer questions that have already been answered in pretty obvious places.

The only Grand Battle stuff I read were the first couple pages of The Grand Tweet or whatever the name is.

I also read the "Which Grand Battles updated this week" thread for some reason.

You are not alone in this kind of stuff I once read an OOC thread for an RP without reading the RP itself.

Jac at this point we should all know that if there is any way to describe me, it's mildly annoying.

Hey, don't worry about it, it's not always clear where to look for information. We're admittedly bad at including the rules in opening posts.

I had to explain it to somebody on MSPA a little earlier this evening myself.

I'm still kind of proudly confused that I summed up Grand Battles pithily enough to be forever quoted in OPs now.

Re: This is gonna be the thread where we talk about stuff
Okay guys can I ask if there is an eagle time IRC or wherever everyone hangs out because i always see chatlog post things in signatures and on various tumblrs and i'm just sort of hoping that it isnt #mspafa because there are a lot of people there that i am adverse to so yes ok
Quote
Re: This is gonna be the thread where we talk about stuff
It's usually #grandbattle rather than #mspafa
There's a bit of overlap but most of the people who are here and in #mspafa also go to #grandbattle

We do obviously spend a fair bit of time talking about grand battles though
If there's some other Eagle Time channel nobody invited me

Not because they changed it, because it is the same with minor cosmetic differences. I had to adblock plus element hiding helper away all of the recommended video bullshit on the homepage again because you still don't have an option to hide it in your account settings, and you still can't turn off autoplay (which I have a greasemonkey script for, also one to hide comments because ya can't do that either).

Jesus christ, Google. WE DON'T HAVE TO HAVE FEATURES OR BASIC DISPLAY OPTIONS, WE'RE THE MOST POPULAR VIDEO HOSTING SITE.

If you could point me towards that Greasemonkey script for disabling autoplay I would be eternally grateful.

And somehow, when you post a reply, it still can't post a working link to the comment you're replying to.
