You don't need to unvote to vote for someone new.

Really don't know what else you want from me. It's not my fault that I was roleblocked, nevermind the fact my role couldn't be used to start with.

Looks like someone uses post editing to grab the formatting, but does the editing in that post and then pastes it into the new one, but forgot that last step.

The town decided there verdict with haste, sending Aragorn to the gallows. There was no need for a confession his expression said it all. The town was saved, but at a heavy cost.
Aragorn - Godfather Lynched Day 4

Village Win
OOC: I apologize, this seemed to be a pretty bad game.

If anyone's interested here's the roles. They might of had small tweeks, but this is mostly right.
Hidden: 
Jackstick
Mayor – This town is your pride and joy. You spent years helping build this town up, and you’re not going to let these so called “Mafia Big Shots” tear it down. Surely your voice carry’s some weight around here, and you’re going to use that weight to do some good. You decided to lay low and assess the situation first. When the time comes you’ll make sure the mafia see the noose.
(Can reveal yourself during day and gets a vote that counts as two)

Spirographed
Survivor - When life gets rough, put on some body armor! Or that's at least what you tell yourself. Others call you paranoid, you prefer prepared. It's time to show everyone that you were right to spend half your savings on military grade combat armor, thick enough to stop a 50cal. bullet to the chest.
(Your goal is to live to the end of the game. You have a vest with 1 use that when used make you immune for the night, and a 1 use lethal protect, it will kill the first person to visit you. You count as a villager with a special win condition)

Pyro3000
Spy - There's never been someone you couldn't track down. You've always gotten the information you needed, and got it quick. The situation you find yourself in now, well... Quite the predicament to say the least. You've never used your skills for personal affairs. It’s always been for the money, but now you’re doing it for your life.
(You can follow one person each night to see where they go)

SparkyAMS
Doctor - All your life you've only wanted to help people, spending eight years of your life learning how to save life's. You were considered a medical genius by your peers, and a hero to a-lot of people. You moved back to your home town to help the people you care for, and now... It looks like they need you.
(You can protect one person a night, and can only self-protect once)

Frank 4.0.1
Messenger – You’ve spent your life trying to become an author, but life hasn’t quite been on your side. Instead you ended up working for the local paper, covering the small happenings of the town. Recently there’s been a big dispute with the what… mafia? You’re not the bravest person, but maybe just maybe you could put your writing skills to use.
(Can send anonymous messages, limited to one a night)

Sighence
Copycat - Growing up you never knew what you wanted to be. You had seen people do great things, changing the world for the better. This inspired you to do the best you could at everything you tried, people even started to recognize you as a prodigy. But something else you noticed was there hard work never paid off. Now crime on the other hand… Some people made it out big, and with your skills you think you could too. If only you had a chance.
(You can take up the role of a dead mafia member. Message me at night to do this)

Aragorn Ix
Godfather - Aiming high your whole life, you've found yourself at the top. You may not be the nicest person around, but you’re definitely the most successful. You've decided this town would be a nice place to set up another operation, and you've come to make sure that happens.
(You are the leader of the scum, and choose who gets sent out for the kill)

Topsummoner
Mafia Roleblocker – You keep people from doing things Mr. Bossman wouldn’t like. You don’t kill them, but they might be left thinking you will. Your one of the best at your job, and that’s why the Boss has taken you along for this little field trip…
(You can stop one person from using their role each night. Can’t roleblock the kill target)

Friend of Hiker
TOPSUMMONER I AM SUPER DISAPPOINTED IN YOU BUDDY

So here's the game of Mafia as I understand it. Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

People say "The Mafia win when their numbers equal or exceed the Villagers" (heck, it's rule #3) but that is simply not true. The Mafia's true win condition is for all of the Villagers to die. (I just searched the Internet several times and it says they can also win if they outnumber (not equal) the Villagers, which is also fine; see below).

Normally, ending the game when the number of Mafia equal the number of Villagers is a courtesy because a Mafia win is inevitable. The Mafia won't vote in a lynch (why should they?), so no lynches will happen since there will never be a majority, and then someone will be killed by the Mafia the following night, and so on and so forth until all the Villagers are dead.

Jackstick's role actually could have been an example of this. If there were two Mafia and two Villagers left, Jackstick's double-vote power still could have swung a majority against a Mafioso.

But my beef with Top (love ya but you messed up dude) is that his role was legitimately broken. If it came down to 1 Mafia and Top, a lynch won't happen, and Top can't die at night because he'll never be home. Mafia can't self-murder because that would be dumb, so the game is deadlocked forever. I can't imagine a real Mafia game that would create a role that could deadlock the game, which means Top's role was made up.

You actually weren't even on my radar at that point, but suddenly posting a broken role + trying to kill the claimed Doctor at the same time was just...really really weird.

(Note: The above post falls to pieces if you uphold Thr's Rule #3, but I still defend my position that "mafia == villagers" is not a valid win condition if the game has special roles.)

I've never ever played in a mafia game where play continued after there was 50% mafia to 50% others. I don't think Thr would have gone down that route anyways.

My roleclaim didn't matter, plain and simple. I was screwed statistically; there was no roleclaim I could make that would be bought if anybody took a step back and looked at this statistically. Besides, Spiro was already the kingmaker at that point.

I have plenty of grievances with this game, mostly with the setup itself but also with the play of some players. I don't know how to phrase it all constructively though so I think it's probably better if I stay quiet.

See, I remember your game from a few years back that didn't exactly have standard rules, so your faulting me for reading the rules and what is and isn't there is really really rich coming from you. I PMed him about the omission before doing anything and didn't act until I received consent. My conscience is clear.

I did say Sig could do it, but I thought he was going to copy and paste it. Due to my lack of use of th PM system, I didn't know you could quote PMs. So I said no screenshots. By the time I realized it was too late. Anyway I take the blame for that one.
