It is at this point in time I realized that giving people some iota of control over what alignment they randomly receive is making me do way more math than I expected I would have to do.

Also, I now know more than I ever thought I would need to about picking probability, exchangeable random variables, and the i.i.d. statistical model. Sheeeeesh.

I also now know everyone's alignments. Fun times.

You just announced that all the alignmens roles got picked here.

Also when I did let players decide their alignments I just virtually exctracted tickets to find out who was mafia and let players determine how many of their tickets were in the pool, way easier to track.

Well I mean even if they were last in the pack each time they'd all get drafted inevitably.

Yeah, but knowing that you definitely won't get one in your last pick might change how you prioritize the picks before that.

You're right I did. I also don't care. :teach:

I can't wait for this game to be over so I can show you all my crazy math formulas.

Here's a sample:

Dusky: (town 5%)/(mafs -2.5%)x(self2.5%)=town1.67% modifier
KoD: (town-76%)/(mafs76%)x(self0%)=mafs25% modifier
JD: =cult

You're on the right track.

Now multiply this by a factor of...900.

That would require 360 Alignment Control picks... And it would also require that voting Cult was a valid option when picking them. :V

The odds of there being a Cult in the game are pretty low, given what is required for there to be added any, but IF there is a Cult, the people who have the best chances of getting that alignment are actually those who didn't pick any alignment control options at all, technically.

As a designer who just absolutely LOVES Cult, I try to include a version of Cult in all of my games. That said, because I never make it the primary threat (always a tertiary threat), I inevitably nerf it severely somehow, usually by putting a cap on the number of players they can drag into their Cult. You know, cuz un-nerfed Cults can get out of control.

The "nerf" in this game is that the odds of a Cult alignment being introduced is low. But if it does happen, if there IS a Cult, they will have no such limitations on how many people they can absorb. Fair warning.

Thanks! Sounds charming. I don't think Sky uses Discord, but I could be wrong. I'll ask him.
