Newbiespud's Note: A (probably necessary) reminder of who's playing who in terms of the One Piece Grand Line 3.5 cast:

Big Macintosh = Cory, Derpy = Rika, Doctor Whooves = Luke, Trixie = Natalie, Shining Armor = Gordon, Soarin = Phil, and Luna = DM (not the FiD DM, just "DM").

Ah! That roster helps, thank you. :3

A dizzying debate but delectably deviant as they've dared to draw diligence and implicate dame Rarity.

"I'd like to see Rarity target Applejack in the night. Ohh yeahh."

"Shut up Phil!"

Entirely peopled with criminals...like that rogue Rarity!

I wonder how Rarity will defend herself.

Okay, Mafia 101 is that you target anybody who makes hilariously wrong accusations. Sure, it's not quite random, but the minimal amount of information it gives is worth it for the high probability of giving strong misinformation.

Guess I'm getting lynched, or offed, then. As I love to make hilariously wrong accusations on the grounds of hilarity. Mind you, I usually wind up right which actually irks me some...being wrong and surprised is way more fun.

There's a trope for that: Right for the wrong reasons.

And even if they aren't mafia, said people tend to interfere with guessing who the mafia are, so this at least cuts out that interference.

I thought rarity was joking about the last session, not seriously accusing Shiny.

Well, I can't see logic behind Twilight's conclusion. Would I be an mafioso, my first move would be random, it's the best move, btw. If one of targets failed, I'd try it again cause chances of it being Nurse are high enough.

Hm, setup for a panel full of Rarity Investigates trenchcoat as she points at somebody else?
(And then seaweed-strewn PPOV version as the town decides to send her on a long walk off a short pier anyway?)
This is going to be fun.

It's `MMMystery on the Friendship Express`.

Yes that is where today's is from. I'm predicting how Rarity will defend herself, and whether she will be successful.

Point. But here Rarity is accused, not RD.
Ishidan 17th May 2017, 7:48 PM edit delete reply
And Rarity was the one wearing the trenchcoat that was later seen soaking wet in PPOV.
If RD does get accused again, oh the opportunities for a Turnabout Storm reference.

i like how luke isn't saying anything it just give me impression he's enjoying the chaos more than the game
DanielLC 16th May 2017, 11:15 AM edit delete reply
Obviously Applejack would get taken out twice. After the first attempt, everypony would know she's innocent, so they'd listen to her more when deciding who to lynch, making it harder for the mafia to target innocent ponies. Also, since nopony would lynch her, they're more likely to lynch the mafia.
Godzfirefly 16th May 2017, 2:43 PM edit delete reply
Not completely obvious, since the Nurse might consider the same thing and continue protecting her. If you keep throwing kills at a Nurse-protected player, that's one wasted kill every turn. And, it only further entrenches in peoples' minds that the player should be someone the citizens can rally behind.

DM was killed? When? I thought he was repped by Spike, who isn't playing.
Cyborg7221 16th May 2017, 12:17 PM edit delete reply
DM is the actual name of one of the Grand Line 3.5 characters who are crossing over. She was playing Luna, I think.
Referee 16th May 2017, 11:26 AM edit delete reply
Well, Rarity was pretty scummy on Day 1, so I think they got it right.

Still, with two kills, the village is on the ropes. Even if they lynch Mafia, if both night kills succeed it's 3 vs 3 and that's a Mafia win.
Kereminde 16th May 2017, 12:01 PM edit delete reply
Didn't they already get the nurse now, so they *can't* save anyone?
Referee 16th May 2017, 12:06 PM edit delete reply
Applejack was saved by the nurse, doesn't necessarily mean she was the nurse. Likely, yes, but not certain. :)

AJ and Derpy are civs. Both cops and Nurse in play yet. The previous page, duh.
Ishidan 16th May 2017, 1:54 PM edit delete reply
Nope, all revealed cards of ousted players so far were civs.
tolich 16th May 2017, 12:07 PM edit delete reply

I think, eliminating one maf will reduce their kills per night.
(Of course, if Rarity is a civ, the Mafia instantly wins and comic ends, and this is boring.)

I haven't read the night comics, but I feel like Twilight is Mafia here. Her talk about the eye dilation was a comment she wouldn't have actually noticed but she got a pass on because she's twilight and would notice that. She's also being overly analytical, almost like she's planned this entire thing. And knowing her, she would have planned how this all goes down.

I think Rarity is being framed and Twilight is playing 4-d chess.

That said, if Rarity is Mafia, then RD might be too, because Rarity defended her earlier.
Referee 17th May 2017, 12:33 PM edit delete reply
Rarity was jumping bandwagons left and right on day 1...
Ishidan 16th May 2017, 10:49 PM edit delete reply
I like how both Rarity and Trixie have tossed accusations, if not nominations, at Shining Armor.

So far, nobody has risen to that bait.

Haven't spoken a word in day phase yet: Flutters and Doctor. Any guesses as to why or why not?
Malroth 16th May 2017, 11:15 PM edit delete reply
Malroth
Well Fluttershy is easy, Wither she's on the Mafia or the Town side she's still Fluttershy and therefore reluctant to get herself involved in social conflict.

Dr hooves however is the same player as Luffy so absolutely no clue why he hasn't tried something crazy yet.
HopeFox 17th May 2017, 2:03 AM edit delete reply
If both detectives are still in play, why don't they advertise themselves as such, and share all the information they've gathered so far? It will make them prime targets for the Mafia, but this is Mafia match point already - the only way the town can win now is if they lynch a Mafia tonight (and even then it'll be tough).

Sure, they may or may not be believed, but it'll get the information out there, and I don't see much reason not to do it.
