    Almost always scared when I agree with tom, but that DV wagon is garbage.

    Since you are the expert of no lynching what are the benefits of no lynching?

    I came into an interesting thought, but now I need to see the counter to it.


    Everyone is a power role.

    I know that by claiming the idea and pushing it, the scum will see me as a threat.

    I get targeted or roleblocked, investigative roles get information.

    That's the science behind it. It puts stock into there being a watcher/cop, but it feels safe to assume that those roles exist somewhere, unless we have a bunch of bleh abilities.

    Vaimes's last post makes me feel infinity better about him.
    I'm not saying this has any bearing on your alignment, or how I"m reading you. But that bolded part doesn't scan at all. "Lynch the guy that came up with the idea we don't like?" Huh? It's not like if you died tonight we'd all say "Geez, it was probably because he had the no-lynch idea". It's just weird that you think you're this huge threat because you pushed this idea. I mean, I hope this works out for you, but I just don't see it. Didn't you list out reasons for a scum kill? "Bad Ideas" wasn't on there Smile


    The idea behind suggesting a no-lynch is that I have an ability that can be useful to the town if it goes off, or I think I have there is an ability that wants to get to night without being exposed.

    Since the scum know I am town, they are going to wonder why I would suggest such a thing.

    That said, two claimed neutrals kind of make me hate the plan, despite its merits. Ghosting is scummier by a mile than Proph, but Proph has an ability that the town doesn't want to deal with. Blehhhh

    Unvote. I'll let you off for now.

    If scarbo is scum, I admire the fact that he pretty much double downed on my dying wagon with his "I don't believe any of you who have a town read on GJ" stick. That's a lot of balls to push a mislynch that won't actually happen, so I think I can move him to the town pile.

    Cythare, I need to look at some more. He is voting me each time, but really doesn't seem interested in getting more people attracted to that choice.


    Jack loses some stock. Something about his last couple of posts just hit the ear wrong. Maybe on a slight re-read, I'll feel better.

    Catching up, but the brief skim is lols neutral.

    Personally, if both are believed, rather get Proph

    Ghosting seems weird though.

    @Hunt

    I just picked a random low poster, you lost the draw.

    Like your last post though.

    First off: I don't know why we are spending so much time worrying about unlocking latent abilities, claiming the triggers for them, and all that good stuff. One of the reasons why Specialties are so scum-sided is because the town wastes a lot of time talking about mechanics, which is a perfect smokescreen for scum to hide.

    Take a look at Mind Screw - scum!tom and scum!killjoy in that game were able to avoid the lynch for so long because ALL they did (and the town) was talk about what the heck was going on with the game because of the incessant mechanics discussion. There was absolutely no behavioral analysis done that game, and as such we had to rely on the SK to take them out when we were putting our heads in the ground buying up everything the scum were saying. I see this game taking a similar path (fixation on mechanics) and it's the last thing we need right now.

    I know I'm sort of responsible for that due to my role, but I can't control what role I got randomized or even that this role was designed in the first place, so we should really focus on analysis to root out the scum instead of worrying about abilities.

    What about the playerbase that makes you want to be town?
    Pretty decent number of experienced players here, as well as you and Jack coming onto this site. Plus, my good friend Atogaholic is hosting this game, and I wouldn't want to let him down.

    What was your purpose of asking this question? What did you hope to gain from it?

    Quote from D_V »
    But really it is because you failed the reaction test of post 36. Thoughts?
    I really don't see not responding to "are you scum" as failing a reaction test. It doesn't seem like a good rationale to hunt the scum with, at least.

    Hello all!

    I haven't read a thing, will do later today or tomorrow, but I gotta ask:

    My latent abilities unlock whenever the Day ends with a no lynch. I'm not hinted what they are though.

    Help me please?
    In contrast, I kind of like this cavalier opening from Kosa.
    Quote from Lil4leafclover »
    @prophyaxis if we left you alone for the time being, will you reveal your latent ability to us?
    Yes. I claimed to do so in my first post.

    Quote from zomgarcwind »
    Im not a fan of no-lynch, however if the group consensus leads there i will support it
    I am really not a fan of this post. Can you explain your stance on no-lynching in more detail? It seems like you're placing higher importance with whatever the group thinks than what is actually best for town.

    I also like Kosa's second post. It could just be the confirmation bias, but it feels like he actually believes that Silver is scum.

    I can't tell if #124 is actually coming from newb town.. or newb scum who doesn't know how the game works? It's triggered my "too anti-town to be town" alarm bells though.

    Quote from scarbo »
    Sounds pretty anti-town to me.

    Unvote
    Vote: zomgarcwind
    You think anti-town equates to scum, in this case?

    Eh. I think I'm coming around to zomg actually being newb town? He genuinely believes that his plan is pro-town.

    Quote from Ghosting »
    Proph, do you want me alive or dead?
    I don't know what you do other than your "role is the opposite of mine", which is pretty vague. Do you, like, unvanillaize people or something?

    And c'mon guys, we're better than this. We never no-lynch on Day 1. People who believe that no-lynching Day 1 is optimal is not good. Stop that.


    It would have been optimal in Animal, and I think it would be optimal here.

    Trump made a fool of himself. The world sees it, America won't. Clinton was barely effectual, but that's a winning position when your opponent is a man-child who can't let you speak.


    I don't disagree with a single word you said.

    But the people in America who think Trump is a man child thought that long before this debate. Do you think he screwed himself over with people who weren't firmly in the Clinton campaign?

    I also realize the irony of someone who states they know their range, and state action a is not in that range, while in full control of action a. Kindly disregard that and tell vote mindreaver, or give me a damn good reason he is town.

    that's precisely the point. you gave unsolicited, waffly reads and followed it up with a tautology. and now you're unraveling.


    I don't unravel. And even if I did, it isn't alignment indicative.
    Like, that statement is just pure arrogance. Are you going to tell me next that town can't unravel?


    do you or do you not think you're bursting apart into tiny pieces?


    I mean, I am irritated. Bursting apart/unraveling? Not worth it to me. Not over a game of mafia.

    I would sub out before I ever tilted. And I subbed out exactly one time in my several years here, and it was after I got mega burned out.
