I didn't even put any thought into picking the lovers, i just picked at random out of the list of players. Seems i did a good job.

Yeah you really did, the guardian angel/ wolf combo was awesome!

It was something we had in earlier iterations of the Lovers and I've always liked the idea myself. If you're going to burden people with their own win condition and death pact you might as well let them talk privately to give them some time to discuss matters.

I think it was game 5 or 6 where Knives and I were the Lovers, and it was the first time that the Lovers were allowed to communicate during the night. It was helpful since we could pass along our theories to each other that we may not have wanted to air out in public. Once the player list started to get smaller, we started talking about possible strategies like possibly turning on each other to make ourselves look more credible, but then Knives was killed by the wolves and I had to kill myself.
edit: I think that was the same game in which I had an eccentricity that I had to include an onomatopoeia in each of my posts. It was also one of the last games to include eccentricities in their original form.

I prefer the lovers to be able to talk. I've never been one myself, though.

Let me tell you, it is a boatload of fun.

i prefer when the Lovers can't communicate. That way the only thing driving the Lover's collective strategy is their love for one another, as it should be.

Also both times have been an amazingly lucky combination. In this one, GA and Werewolf. The last time was Seer & Werewolf.

Why did eccentricities get axed any way?

The consensus was that they were more of a distraction than anything else. Also, after you've done several, it's difficult coming up with new ones that don't suck. I wouldn't be opposed to bringing them back every now and then.

Having them return wouldn't be terrible, but I don't like the powers that became associated with them.
If we did return them I would say let the special power (avoid death, whatever it may be) be a one time thing for the entire game.

If I remember (I'm currently drunk, so I may be incorrect), but the only power associated with the quirks was that villagers could save themselves from hanging if they guessed a quirk correctly. I think it would be better if there was only one communal save by eccentricity. There was also a werewolf with a quirk that was was somehow directly related to the character being a werewolf (i.e. they had to say something that only a werewolf would know). Even as a villager, I never really liked that aspect of the werewolf quirk. I think it forced some werewolf players into being far less active than they would have otherwise been.

I always liked the eccentricities, it's just a pain in the ass coming up with "good" ones that are fun but not in your face or on the flip side too vague.
