Generally speaking, the Seer would remain quiet until they have a bead on a wolf, whereupon they would out themselves to catch the bugger. After that wolf is lynched, the villagers would rally behind the Seer in support as long as he/she still lives and searches for the remaining wolves. All villagers the Seer has seen become confirmed villagers
In this game, however, the same strategy doesn't apply. Once the Seer outs him/herself, the wolf can turn him/her into a wolf. Or the wolf can turn any one of the declared confirmed players into a wolf. So long as we don't know when the second wolf was turned, nobody can ever be a confirmed villager, not even the Seer.
So after the first wolf is killed, the Seer gets mauled during the night. Well, that or he/she lives on to maul other players if the Seer was the one turned. Either way, it will be a guessing game to find the last wolf. We can't depend on the Seer like we normally do.
Anyone have a strategy, then?

Once the seer's confirmed a wolf they're pretty much worthless as, like Byron said, they'll either be killed or converted into a wolf themselves. It seems extreme but I'd consider killing the seer once they've sniffed out a wolf, just to be on the safe side.
Also anyone the seer confirms as a villager is worthless as they could later turn.
I have no strategy however, other than killing off the quieter ones (at the very least this would speed up the game).

Yeah I'm all up for speeding up the game. If we just sit around waiting for something to happen this is going to get boring fast.

Seer is find a bad guy. Kill bad friend. If the game does not immediately terminate, we kill the Seer. If the game does not immediately terminate, we cry.

So which quiet kid we gonna bully today?

At least ZP is finally starting to make some sense. As for quiet players, there haven't been too many of them since we have a much smaller roster.
12-05-2012, 01:20 PM
This is a decent start, of course now that it's being discussed the Wolf can just choose to convert someone else since they can count on us to kill the Seer for them shortly after he's outed.

I don't see how lynching ZP will speed up this game.

Byron (Byron), so called alpha ignored Bali or hate.

It's another man dead. As far as the quiet ones go, I don't like the idea. In past games whenever we do that it doesn't seem to work for us.

Well damn it, now I'm in the mood for tacos but I don't have any money to run over to Del with. As tempting as it is to help the murderball roll along, I'll have to abstain. Nothing else to go on.

Yeah I see what you mean, besides it does seem harsh to penalise players because they're either unable to post as often as others or being quiet is their playing style. I'll think on it some more.

I'm going to abstain as well, I see no good coming from killing one of the people that is actually active.
