Checkmarks and "Ready"
All the time, people claim to see who has marked themselves "Ready" in a game. The only thing that I can see is the checkmark next to powers, which, unless I'm mistaken, means that you have saved moves and won't NMR, but not that you're "Ready" and will process as soon as others all "Ready."

Is there something they see that I don't? Or is this just a broad misconception of what that indicates?

@Jamiet: Just imagine you are me. It's D1 and a bunch of morons and mafia members are trying to lynch you. You have a pitchfork. Would you use it so you can potentially further your win condition by getting the runner up lynched (possibly mafia)?

Ok, maybe I would.
Vecna (940 D)

Does the rule of no activation of items/abilities in the last 10 minutes of a dayphase apply to a pitchfork? Because it would be kind of awesome if it did not.
Jamiet99uk (443 D)

I presume it would apply, otherwise the ghost could kill the lynch leader with 5 seconds to go....

Vecna (940 D)

It would not be impossible to adjudicate at all in case of the pitchfork...in fact it would be very simple. And the gm's themselves hinted at potential chaos for the (ghosted) use of the pitchfork to get someone else lynched, so im all in favor of allowing it at any point.

If the Thief steals a haunted item, does the item remain haunted even if the Thief isn't, or does the item become unhaunted?
Jamiet99uk (443 D)
29 May 16 UTC
That is a good question, Xorxes.

My interpretation is based on the following in the Ghost PR:

"If you are haunting a person with an item, you will be made aware you have possession over the item. (You will be told if you lose possession of the item if the circumstance arises.)"

This specifically provides for a circumstance whereby the ghost loses possession of the item, and it implies that the ghost only controls the item *through* the body of the person they are haunting. To me this would appear to have been drafted to provide for the prospect of the thief stealing an item from a haunted person - and in that case, the ghost would lose control of it.

##CALL GM:

1. Is my interpretation, above, broadly correct?

2. If the ghost is haunting a person with an item, and the thief targets the *ghost* instead of the haunted person, they would NOT gain the item - correct?
Fluminator (496 D)
30 May 16 UTC
Yep. You're correct. If it got stolen they could lose control.
Stealing from the ghost does nothing unless the ghost actually has an item physically.
Maniac (344 D (B))
30 May 16 UTC
"....unless the ghost actually has an item physically." I'm intrigued by the notion of a ghost in a virtual game having an item physically.
Jamiet99uk (443 D)

He means that if, for example, Bo_sox is the ghost, and he's eating a pizza when the you thief visit him, then Bo_sox has to send the rest of the pizza to you.

#CALL GM: Is pizza eating processed before or after thief visits? The rules are not clear on that point.
