JFK

It's November 1963. A man asks a friend to help him in a criminal ploy to win a young maiden's heart. It's not going to be easy, after all, they plan to murder, and no one other than John F. Kennedy, the President of the United States. Both of them get ready and travel to Dallas, where JFK currently is. Will they be able to get through Kennedy's explosive defense?

There's but one way to find out!

JFK

The two men prepare their weapons to aim at the President. The friend awaits a message to know about the plan.
Meanwhile, JFK gets ready to go out in public in the daylight, and his defenses get ready to stop anything from doing harm to him.

Night actions won't be allowed this round. As such, the night will end earlier.
Night 0 has begun. Day 1 will begin in 16 hours.

JFK

JFK and his men show themselves, each wearing a mask that depicts a random animal, which covers their identity. Such ploy confused the mafia's plans. Figuring out which of them was JFK would be a tough task.

Day 1 has begun. Night 1 will begin in 48 hours.

With background music and masked diversions.

I too wish actual US presidents were on Pokecommunity.
Not some of them :)

If this were an anime, it would suck





Anyway I going to assume that pie is mafia, because the statement "As good a way to make people talk as any" is a very... threatening statement. Something only someone with the power to kill would say.

That makes literally no sense whatsoever. It worked though.

I agree with Umbreon in that your reasoning for him and now jdthebud is pretty suspicious.

Not much else to talk about though...
These are clearly not serious votes, they're pressure votes to get people talking and gauge reactions. It's a pretty common mafia tactic and as we were given literally nothing to go on, not even any investigative roles, they're a reasonable early way to work out some reads. For example, you look scummy as hell for trying to capitalise on is extremely flawed OMGUS vote. So this one, is serious.

Part of me is kinda suss at some of GP's interactions. Keeping in mind the mafia duo is a spy and a sniper. From memory of playing similar set-ups on EM I don't think they would know each other's identities? Correct me if I'm wrong. So I'm guessing Spy has relayed some sort of message to Sniper to identify themselves to the Spy.

The whole interaction between GP and Midnight Umbreon leaves me a bit curious tbh. Some interesting choices of words ("If this were an anime, it would suck"), quick votes on each other, GP ending posts in very specific ways (two sentences ending with smiley faces in the post voting Midnight Umbreon, two questions ending the post voting jd)... all things that seem pretty subtle but imo are likely (and common?) ways to identify yourself to a mafia partner who you don't know.

I don't think applying pressure votes is scummy at all but I have a hunch that GP is either providing signals to the Sniper to identify himself as the Spy, or vice versa upon instruction of the Spy. So for now I'll [vote] gimmepie

If I were willing to send signals they would not be signals that were blatant obvious. If you actually think about it, what I'm doing is fairly clear.

Whoops I forgot this existed.

Well, my initial thoughts on the setup and a bit of strategy:

Day start helps us a lot by giving us an extra mislynch, barring gun shenanigans. We should absolutely lynch someone today, even if it's random.
Assuming the gunsmith survives Day 1, I think they should give a gun to the President. That gives the President a chance of defending themselves in potential endgame scenarios.
This is a very small game, so inactivity will hurt town a lot more than scum. Obviously I need to follow this point as well. :)

Does spy act during the day or night? If it's a night action, this kind of thing isn't possible.
