The War of Five Kings has raged on for nearly a year. Robb Stark and his northern armies have won victory after victory. Balon Greyjoy has rebelled against the kingdom from the Iron Islands. King Joffrey and his Lannister kin hold King's Landing and the Iron Throne. Both remaining Baratheon brothers, Stannis and Renly, have crowned themselves and raised armies.

Renly was slain under mysterious circumstances outside of the Baratheon keep, Storm's End, and his forces were absorbed by Stannis. Only the Tyrell host refused to join him and returned to Highgarden. Stannis' forces are sailing up the Blackwater Rush to attack King's Landing. The bulk of the Lannister army is occupied fighting the Stark forces from the North, but Tywin Lannister has dispatched Petyr Baelish to negotiate an alliance with the displaced Tyrell forces. Will relief arrive in time or will Stannis take the city? And will the saboteurs on both sides change the outcome of the battle?

This game takes place during the climax of the second book, A Clash of Kings. Basic information about the important events and characters during the Battle of the Blackwater can be found here. Players are not only divided by the normal factions (town, mafia, third party), but also by various allegiances of the characters. Those loyal to King Joffrey are obviously one faction, as are the invaders led by King Sannis, but other factions exist as well. These factions will play a crucial role in determining who controls the Iron Throne.

Role PMs will go out later tonight. Please confirm in thread. With 14 alive, it takes 8 to lynch. Day 1 begins now and will end at the end of Friday, July 19. Okay, I'll be out of town that day, so probably it will end the day after that.

Please mark your votes in this format: ##Vote: Name or ##Unvote. You do not need to unvote between changing votes. Please do not discuss the game outside of this thread or in approved quicktopic threads. Lastly, please do not edit your posts. If you have any questions, PM me. If you have any questions about roles or default rules for the game, check the wiki at mafiascum.net. If this is your first game, I recommend examining past game threads. Have a good time!

I guess before I accuse Ecofarm of being shadowbinder Melisandre who has no allegiance to town or scum, I guess we should engage in some cursory speculation as to the teams. With 14, I am assuming 3 scum, shadowbinder Melisandre who killed Renly per the op link who is probably some variation of a lone-wolf player, and 10 town. Having no night 0 is good for town but getting 8 on a Day 1 lynch is going to be tough for town, especially since scum presumably do not know who their teammates are. Thoughts?

Scum are generally told their teammates (and their roles) in the role PM. Why would scum not know their teammates this game, and how would that make a (presumably proper) lynch more difficult? If scum didn't know their teammates, wouldn't it be easier for town to get a proper lynch?

I don't know. I have never been scum. I guess I assumed they wouldn't know until they post on their special night talk thread thingy as I thought that them not knowing came up at the Carnival on Day 1. If they didn't know the others on the first day I would assume they would play for a no lynch until they knew who their mates were as to not accidentally kill one. Guess I was wrong.

That would be me. I assume Pasch cut and pasted the list from before I signed up and forgot to add me on, but I received a role PM.

Could Fisher be playing dumb?

Could Tucker be distancing himself from Fisher?

Could they be involved in a ruse?

Ecofarm is avoiding discussing the not-town third faction, perhaps because he already knows everything about them.

I presume that the third-party faction is the invaders of that battle and "others" are Mafia:

Those loyal to King Joffrey are obviously one faction, as are the invaders led by King Sannis, but other factions exist as well. These factions will play a crucial role in determining who controls the Iron Throne.
Would you like a list of characters in the two warring factions? I've been reading the website about it and have a pretty good grasp of those two sides.

I would prefer that you tell us how many people are on your third party team and what their names are.

While my character doesn't seem to appear much in the "Clash of blah blah", I appear to be aligned with the Clittorians by way of Tyrion.

I see more deception making up a group not associated with the franchise. Since you are the one who says that town should never lie about things, I will take that as a confession that you are, in fact, not town. I should way until everybody joins into the game to vote for you, but thanks for making it easier this time.

I think an alternate group may be those associated with the Queen.

What makes you think it is a group instead of lone wolf or wolves and how many people are in this alternate group with you?

Do you know anything about the book or characters? You seem to be plowing blindly on with ignorant BS.
