The inspiration - Dangaropa Day 2
Good morning! There are now 24 hours before the end of the day phase.
Ok there's a lot to do here. So the first piece of flavor was original. I needed to bring the group to Monokuma's high school layer and stuff. When I realized Giant Panda was lynched yesterday, I looked back to see if we had any other "bear" players. No? Perfect. So the grizzly bear is Burbeting, the bear of love (this began when he hosted Love Boat Mafia, and modded the game as a bear. The burb is a bear thing is still a thing). Burb's friendlier nature is why he doesn't conduct the cruel part of this day, that's QUACK's job. Burb just brings the body to the area and locks the exit.
Ding dong ding dong comes from Dangaropa. Tbh, I quiet like it, for some reason it puts me in the mood of Dangaropa's flavor, reminds you you're in a game, please wake up. I think it's just that I can imagine that sound really well. Of course, because you guys were last in a train, not in a dorm, you would have to exit from a train car. After the bing-bong statement, I added my own thing here - QUACK QUACK QUACK. The moderator of Dangaropa was LaunchpadMcQ, and at some point someone made the Q into Quack (like it's supposed to be iirc?). From there, I basically made it into a really annoying joke, where whenever I referred to Launch, I called him LaunchpadMcQUACKQUACKQUACKQUACKUQUACK. When Launch and I co-modded GAFIA 1, I made my avatar into a duck. Over time, because typig that is boring and sorta exhausting, I just sorta affectionately nicknamed Launch QUACK, and reduced the number of QUACKs to 3. So yeah, whenever you see the character of QUACK in the flavor, that's LaunchpadMcQ.
Of course, you guys are students, you were tourists, so I had to make it such that Burb and Launch made you guys dress as high school students. I call you all old geezers because all of you are old geezers. In the OG flavor, only one ordinary was NK'ed, but here, I have Kawl draped over batsnacks' body, with the knife barely out of reach, to hint that he was mafia
Batsnacks role pm was entirely ordinary, but Kawl's role pm was an edited version of the closest thing to a godfather Dangaropa had, Splinter's role pm.
This was actually entirely unintentional, as far as the connection to Splinter went (I make another connection later that was a little more intentional XD).
Now, the Salvapot useless bullet-time battle. The truth is, I tried to line up alot of the flavor with my favorite flavor from certain games, if I had an option between games that ran simultaneously. Both dangaropa's day 2 opener and cthulhu's day 2 closer were things I HAD to use. In dangaropa, a certain player, kgtrep, used a power that forced everyone to vote on one of himself or another player, the chosen player being Crab, our first community leader. Due to Crab's intimidation factor (abrasiveness at times, calling people chucklefucks, which is sorta a compliment from him, stuff like that, obviously waaayy more of a veteran player), it quickly became a joke that Crab was the falseHopeleader of dangaropa. Kgtrep got REALLY into the game, actually going further than the rules allowed, analyzing and graphing when Crab was actually online vs his frequency of posts, pointing out that it sometimes seemed Crab was reading the game but not posting, etc. etc. Source of his suspicion was that crab led the bandwagon into lynching a member of town. Anyways, the entire thing was really ridiculous.
Of course, I had no such mechanic, but that was the best part of dangaropa day 2! So basically had the new guy, Salvapot (because of the whole new people are unfamiliar of previous bonds, suspicious of stuff) to declare that every single member of the town had to have scum in them. Thus, he challenges all of them to a bullet-time battle, which means that he really just lets the game go on as normal, because everyone named is a suspect.
The inspiration DAY 2 HAS ENDED
Oh dear, he we go.
Ok, so when I was doing sign-ups, it took a loooong time to fill up the game. When I was waiting for my game forever, I basically just put different versions of my username in as signed up players.
Hyper was the shortened nickname I typically go by, and actually the inspiration for my username. Hyperactivity was the full version. Hpper came from me being bored in Town of Salem alot, and I screwed around, givign a shortened version, but gradually, I started to like it and made it into another main nickname. Hupper was the first version of Hpper, when Hyper was taken on something I was trying to come up with something. I ended up finding it pretty funny, sort of envisioned a really jolly fat dude with the name. Hyperactive I never liked, I had to come up with it for character limits, and it doesn't flow well. Hepper was sort of a joke XD. Hppper started when someone was copying Hpper on ToS, ended up sorta liking but also disliking the 3 ps.Each username's assigned personalities from before the game
So I had to get the high school students to the beach/tropical island of cthulhu, hence beach day episode of an anime. Hey, it worked. Of course, the La-Li-Lu-Le-Lo replacement was based on a mix of all of my usernames, barring the actual mod one. Who is that? Well, Cthulhu had a power that could erase a player and the user from the game, so a certain town leader was erased, hence the name. Time has been the serial killer, and the day had ended with multiple vigilante claims, so the idea of him having multiple masks, as if he had multiple claims, worked well.
In the original flavor, Blargonaut, resident God of mafia, brought the cthulhu mafia group and all of gafia for one of the greatest rides we had ever been on. No seriously, read cthuhu day 2, it's required reading for gafia if ou haven't read through it yet.
Timeaisis of course mentions he was the original vigilante, because that was his claim. At the same time, it's not necessarily wrong, as the idea that the serial killer was really just a crazed vigilante seemed to work well there. Hupper replaces Never Forever in quoting the Taylor Swift lyrics because based on the characterizations, Hupper seemed most likely to make a joke like that. Hepper is the one that begs for it all to stop because he was semi-insane/strange, idea was that Time sorta caused him to snap a little.
So why do I keep referring to Timeaisis as Time? Because the original flavor referred to Blargonaut as Blarg. In the OG flavor, Blarg turns out to be H.P. Lovecraft. When I got this, I realized what had just happened. In my first version of this, I just made him into H.P.P.E.R, but I realized my characterizations of each of the Hypers made hppper the annoying whiny freaking out one. Tbh, up until I got to H.P. Lovecraft, the flavor had more players in it, but me taking hp lovecraft to hpper to hppper was what made me realize and change it all.
Of course, Hppper was a member of the Hyper group, AKA was a mod, thus he was a writer of the game's flavor, hence his reference to being subject to his own torture.
I then looked at the remaining members of Hyper group that I could make into the early winner. Couldn't be Hyperactive, he's trash. Hence Hyper does it. As for why Falkor becomes Roy, I was thinking winged fluffy creature, and Roy ever since Harry Potter mafia, when we were part of the GOAT scum group together, took up the persona of an owl, so Hyper calls Roy and flies off. Hppper as a personality is banished. Calling you guys tourists is still accurate.
Timeaisis's edited role PM worked decently well. In Cthulhu, Blarg needed to survive and help town lynch 3 mafia, and had a 1 shot bulletproof, and Matt Attack could check every night to see if that person was HP Lovecraft and lynch him. This time around, Time either can get bulletproof, or can take investigation proof, which he may or may not have access to. Erasing characters from a storybook also works as a killing method.
I was super late on this flavor, and Hyperactivity, the main mod, didn't win, but Hyper did. Hyper was in Harry Potter mafia, hence Hogwarts, and as mod knows about the game and is invulnerable. That day broke me in terms of keeping up with vote counts, hence why Hyper would want to escape from it. The 7 die are a reference to the 7 numbers I drew to determine this game's setup.
So yeah, HP Lovecraft is responsible for the mod becoming a bigger part of the story, so I guess you guys can thank Ourobolus and Zatoth for that.
I had sort of planned that I would open up the game saying Hyper had abandoned you guys, but Hpper and Hyperactivity were still there. Basically, game canon made that group of 3 the main ones responsible for modding.
So you guys were tourists, and then going home. There had never been a transition really from Sicily to Devillage Ass, so Devillage Ass would have to be a sicillian town. Because archer had a more office set-up, you guys all had office jobs, were home, wanted a normal day. I had random people scream there. Burb was still dead, because for the longest time Burbeting found himself dead by day 3 in every game he entered, starting with Archer, and I had made him appear in the flavor, so he had to die. Of course, as expert love grizzly bear, that flavor remains. His alignment with the brotherhood of bears from earlier made me make the switch from (the agency, not the terrorist organization) to (the terrorist organization). I also kept burb in because taking away the flavor seemed sorta wrong here.
Onto Zippedpinhead's death. In archer, this was the back-up doctor, and the line about protecting ordinaries had to do with doctors. Of course, with the game having so many ordinaries, and this being the 3rd ordinary that died, rather than being the second version of that role, Zippedpinhead was ordinary #3. Ourobolus takes Mallory's position because he did a really great job taking her spot, with many of the players in Archer saying they were having a hard time not reading Malory's quotes in her voice, even when Ouro posted in the thread more normally.
Also, the fact that I accidentally made Timeaisia, a typo, into Ourobolus' child, was important, and would come up later when he left the game. It's another case of me going back, noticing something, and rolling with it.
