LOBL8

I enjoy being a setup nerd so please forgive me for nerding out :D

LOBL has always bothered me a little because I always thought it was slightly flawed. Setup 3 is townsided and mafia had (almost) no information on day 1 at all, the information they had was never that good anyway. There's no way for mafia to co-ordinate their PR claims.

I've made a couple of LOBL variants in the past. However, I think they stray a little too far away from the original, so I propose a very slight adjustment:

LOBL 2.0


In this version, setup 3 has also been given a hooker so the mafia have a way of breaking the PRs.
It's still daystart so mafia still don't know their partners BUT the non-hooker know the setup at least. If they want, SM can claim doc, Ninja can claim watcher and GF can claim cop.
I thought it would be a shame to deprive the nilla in setup 4 from guising if they really want to, so I made him a guiser too. If you're a guiser, and someone claims PR, that's your partner. Sadly, if you choose to guise out after fakeclaiming PR, you will flip blue and reveal the ruse.

Variants:

LOBL 2.0 Dawn

For the boyz who prefer knowing their partner.

LOBL 2.0 No Flip

In this verision, mafia getting lynched doesn't give town information on the setup. That means if the guiser pulls off a convincing fakeclaim, he can guise into someone and it won't reveal he guised out!

Dawn + No Flip

You can also combine the two above but I've spammed my profile with enough setups for now. :pensive:

also shameless plug of the variant of lobl i made years ago https://epicmafia.com/setup/1030927
last setup should be hooker/guiser, so that both maf can't claim pr so easily.

i disagree on the basis that hooker would never know if they needto back guiser up

if guiser claims PR he could end up solo claiming and getting busted

if a PR claim has 3/4 chance of being real, hooker takes a big risk backing up guiser day 1, therefore wont do it, therefore guiser will never claim PR
"Setup 3 is townsided and mafia had (almost) no information on day 1 at all, the information they had was never that good anyway."

I think the point of day start is to take away information from the mafia in attempt to balance the setup. which defeats the purpose of setup 4 here and thus would make it extremely maf sided [5 blues 2 guiser + multi]?

EDIT: LobK is a better varient

i like lobk too, but imo lobl is lobl and lobk is lobk
Clair1mon 24d
