2. WurmD - Hobo Rick - Mind Parasite *Dead, shot by KyleRaymond on Day 2*
3. Kyleraymond - The Rick - Morty *Dead, shot by Wiz on Day 3*

Day 4 dawns, and it is readily apparent that GJC has been armed.

    Lovely! Hm.

    I've personally checked both of you, and you both pop as Human. I hope the two of you have checked me. Which indicates the game should be over. And yet it is not.

    Maybe Rick needs to end the quarantine for the game to end?

    With a series of clicks and whirs and other noises, the doors, windows, and everything else unlock. Everyone feels dizzy for a moment, before their appearances shift back to normal. Looking around the room, there are the bodies of 4 dead Mind Parasites, and one dead Morty.

    Technically speaking, due to Morty's death, Cypermancer as Rick is the only winner. Everyone else failed their victory conditions (Though Wiz came reaaaaaally close).

    1. Cypermancer - Lord Rickington - Rick
    2. WurmD - Hobo Rick - Mind Parasite *Dead, shot by KyleRaymond on Day 2*
    3. Kyleraymond - The Rick - Morty *Dead, shot by Wiz on Day 3*
    4. Brimstone - Sly Rick - Mind Parasite *Dead, lynched on day 2*
    5. Wiz - The TermRickNator - Mind Parasite *Dead, lynched on Day 3*
    6. LTD - Stilts Rick - Mind Parasite *Dead, shot by KyleRaymond on Day 3*
    7. Deo - Stupid Rick - Human (Jerry)
    8. GJC - Ricky Wonka - Human (Summer)

    This was interesting for a first run. I will probably change things so that humans don't have the remember ability (too easy for the 'town' to form a voting block). I actually like Rick's ability to arm multiple people. Anyone interested in another run?

    I think the set up for this game made it incredibly difficult for the mind parasites to win. With no night kill ability and not knowing the other mind parasites in advance they had no real advantage.

    The human remember entity was also incredibly powerful as it allowed all the mind parasites to be identified.

    The mind parasites only ability actually gave their identity away and led to them being killed (which is why I never used my ability throughout the entire game)

    The incorrect public posting of Mortys role did not help. If Morty could only sacrifice for lynchings then we would have had a chance but being able to sacrifice himself for shootings meant we not only had to correctly identify Rick but shoot him twice!

    In cases where the public rules disagreed with what was sent privately or what I intended, I went with what was written in the private PM unless I could correct it well before it became an issue.

    I'm debating on the Morty Save, whether it should apply to gunshots or not. It is intentionally hard to kill Rick because he is the keystone army of the humans. Without him, they all lose.

    I agree with what Wiz said. In addition, I feel like making a "perfect game" a win condition for humans isn't really ideal. I feel like you need to make sure ahead of time that this game can't be "solved" too easily.

    If the mind parasites had a power like being able to takeover a human each night it might be more even

    Care to elaborate on this mechanically?

    The only mechanical fix would be to give the MP's parings. So they knew at least 1 other parasite. All they would need to do is trick the group into lynching a human day 1 and they would be right on track.

    Or even let them know each other, but bar out of thread communications.

    Ultimately, the day one no lynch is what swung it. The mathmancy said it made more sense to do things that way.

    Well....

    You could keep it mostly the same, but have a mind parasite night action act as a roleblock on the target, keeping them from remembering as well as seeing who affected them would help a bit, I believe.

    Thanks Tigerus for running this game - it was certainly interesting.

    Creating something new is challenging - and getting it right first time almost impossible.

    Nice work!

    Perhaps if any humans (Rick notwithstanding) would be given false info if they targeted the MP that is targeting them?
