Talking mimes shouldn't be valid

Postby deedubya » Thu Oct 17, 2019 9:49 pm #519847

See title. Dumb rule that limits creative expression in a role meant to encourage it, and encourages players to continue to be validhunting assholes. I've never not seen a mime immediately get lynched upon this rule being introduced. Give players a target and an excuse to murder them, and no force imaginable is going to stop them. It also gives the mime an excuse to self-antag. Break vow of silence>murder anyone that gets within screen distance of you. You're justified because everyone else could potentially murder you at any moment, all because you had something to say.

not even an ided post, and I've even occasionally taken part in the mime lynching, but it's still dumb as fuck

Nobody really kills talking mimes if you talk for a good reason, but realistically why play mime if you want to talk? It's not called "Assistant Clown" or "I want to tide but in a mask," it's a mime.

BTW, if a mime fights back against the lynch mob they're in the wrong. If they assault people after speaking it's bannable. Being valid doesn't mean you automatically get to murder people.

I've seen a couple times where a Mime is killed by security because they chose to speak in their own defense. It's valid but kind of sad to see. Most Mimes at least seem to understand this point.

The real issue with talking Mimes being valid is when people think they heard the Mime speak or are falsely claiming the Mime spoke to get the in trouble. These are honestly a huge pain in the ass to deal with as it requires a bit of effort to determine if the guy is stupid or acting maliciously to get the Mime killed. In most cases I tell people who murder Mimes for this falsely that it's on them to be sure the Mime actually deserves the valid salad they are dishing out.

I wouldn't mind seeing talking Mimes going back to a shunned but not expressly valid to murder. Having these explicit policy exceptions telling players they can murder someone like this tend to cause the odd complication for little benefit.

Don't pick the gimmick role if you don't want to play the gimmick.

Breaking your oath should be something you consider as having implied weight to it - the best way to enforce this in a round-based game where an "oath" is largely meaningless is making it dangerous for the player's continued participation in the round.

Giga does raise good points about things such as mistaken cases of mime's speaking, but largely these are no different to other possible "mistaken kill" scenarios - we generally can tell a good faith actor vs someone trying to slip under the radar.

Shoeless clowns should be treated the same way imo, fuck shoeless clowns. Not literally, you weirdo.

Mimes should have a limited PDA vocabulary too, preferably just emojis. Same with paper. If you can't mime it out, you dont want it enough.

Also fuck these mimes.

Clowns at least have possible gimmicks going for them without shoes, I've seen some good Jester/Griffin stuff before. The purpose of the clown is to be funny/entertaining, and shoes aren't necessarily a prerequisite.

But mimes only purpose is to be quiet and if they fail that they deserve to die.

I've been forced to talk as a mime (tortured by security) and also tried to get people robusted as a traitor with a mime target, but nobody goes after mimes who speak even though they're allowed to. I've also seen mimes talk and tried to gin up a witch hunt to swirlie them, and nobody responds. Maybe it's just Sybil culture?

I play exclusively on Sybil, and every time I've seen the mime talk, either in common or just in local, they've always been found dead sooner rather than later. Hell, one time recently on Kilo, there was a legitimate greytide trying to get into the HOP office. The mime said something, I don't even remember what it was. All I remember is that all the assistants immediately stopped trying to break into the HOPffice and proceeded to toolbox the mime so hard he didn't even know what happened, made peace with the HOP after they gave their thanks for removing the talking mime, then everyone moved on with their shift. It was amazing, yet still absolutely retarded.

Mimes have a ventriloquist dummy so they can speak without actually speaking, just use that and you won't get lynched.

Seems I was wrong, I was pretty sure I had used it as a mime before. You can still use it if you break the vow as a workaround to not get lynched.

It should be changed to permit escalation, not outright KoS in the same way it should be permissible to escalate against a doctor not healing you, an engineer not making power, etc.

Basically it makes the mime the instigator

No? Assistant is the basic stress free job. Mime is a unique job which is based around the one obligation. Anyone not doing that one thing is wasting the only slot. Not that that matters, because this is dumb.

why pick the job meant to be used as a newbie role to just be a general nuisance / hunt antags / gather gear so when antags reveal you can proceed to hunt them?

Assistants who don't assist deserve death

assistant isnt a gimmick job and has no general expectation of anyone. if anything, people expect assistants to shit up the place.

mimes are expected to pantomime stuff and NOT TALK. Ask anyone, ss13 player or not, what they expect of a mime. Not only will they mention stuff like the classic invisible box, they'll 99% mentino that mimes dont talk.

Assistants are literally given a link to various gimmicks they can do instead of assisting in their spawn text upon joining.

Mines breaking their vow should be hit with such a heavy mood debuff no amount of mindbreaker and space drug should make them neutral.

this

speaking isn't "acting like an antag" anyway so I dunno where nonantags get the idea they can just murder them unless they want to argue that the mime has attacked them by speaking somehow therefore it's escalation

A clown that doesn't honk isn't valid.
An assistant that doesn't assist isn't valid.
An engineer that doesn't fix shit isn't valid.
A doctor that doesn't heal people isn't valid.
A chemist that doesn't make medicine isn't valid.
A scientist that doesn't do research isn't valid.
A cook that doesn't cook isn't valid.
A mime that doesn't stay silent is valid.

Where's the consistency? It's pretty obvious from every single other job on the station that not doing your job the way you're expected to isn't a crime worthy of death/lynching. Yet we make an exception for what is essentially the most harmless role on the station when done "incorrectly".

To provide a counterargument, if someone doesn't do their job gets demoted:

A demoted clown is just clumsy. Plus, it's not uncommon for unfunny clowns to get lynched
A demoted assistant is just a permabrig resident.
A demoted engineer, doctor, chemist and scientist has no special abilities.
A demoted cook has an ability that can only be used in the workspace that he no longer has access to (and presumably wasn't using before he was demoted)
A demoted mime will still have the ability to retake their vow of silence when it suits them, granting them access to annoying mime powers no matter what IC action is taken.

The mime is really one of the only jobs that has innate powers that you can't truly take away, and these powers are tied to whether the mime speaks or not. Is killing your coworker for speaking weird from an RP perspective? Yes. But it'll have to be replaced with serious IC consequences that go beyond a temporary inconvenience.
