    There's only one reason I can think of why you'd be concerned, based on what I know, which is why I'm telling you to shush.

    Sigh. Just an FYI, based on his posting history and ISO, Grape usually would have posted at least a few times between soD and now. I'm assuming he's busy.
    Could have ended the Day already, but noooo, had to be a good sport and respect other players' wishes.
    ...I mean yes, that's a good thing. But I'm feeling lazy.

    On an actual game-relevant pov, not super impressed with the developments since, but it ties back to my original point, so not surprised.

    Looked back at d1....am now concerned.

    I supposed if I ask if you've used your ability you'd cackle at me and continue on with your existence?
    Correct, unless you can give me an actual case for why any role I could claim at this point would make me scum even after considering how I've played this game.

    (The answer is you can't, so shush.)

    Apology accepted. I'm sorry as well.

    Actually, I will address this:
    God damn, guys. If you don't wanna play, replace. Seriously.


    What am I doing that warrants you wanting me to replace? I'm not advocating your yeet because I don't want to play the game. I'm not advocating ending the Day early because I don't want to play the game. I'm not compromising on a Grape yeet because I don't want to play the game.

    All of that I'm doing because I legitimately think that's the best game-winning strategy we have available. And I explained why I believe this. I don't think there's anything that can be said over the next 8+ days that will change these facts.
    I believe yeeting you wins the game. So I work towards that.
    I believe if I'm wrong, yeeting Grape wins the game. I am ok with yeeting him instead today and seeing what happens because that's what other players are more interested in.
    I believe trying to change people's minds serves no purpose when it's easier to speed-yeet the vote of you. It's simpler and more efficient.
    I believe that if I'm wrong and neither of you are scum, then things are worth revisiting. Not before. So that's another reason to get to that possible world quicker
    All of this, including me checking to game constantly on my phone even though I hate doing that on this site, I'm doing because I believe it's the best way to play this game and not because I don't want to play it.

    Don't ever presume to tell me what I want.
    I won't bring this topic up again, so, you know.

    Why are we ending the day so soon? WTF guys? We have new information. We need to analyze it. I have some posts I want to make, but can't make them till Wed.

    I think town has three more useful idiots than me ZDS.
    At least if we lose, I can at least say I tried to win.

    God damn, guys. If you don't wanna play, replace. Seriously.

    Specifically Sloth's apathy is on the border of irritating and toxic. [/rant]
    Also yeah, that's a Janitor. My guess is it's worded like HR's role, where if they make the kill, Janitor things happen instead of strongman.

    Now, on ZDS: I'm Beetlejuice, Town Ability Investigator.
    I have a one shot that tells me the classification of a player's role: cop-ish, doc-ish, or not-either-ish (paraphrased). Unfortunately he came up the third result, so he could be the janitor. Obviously this also means that he didn't use his ability if it's real N2. I was kinda hoping for one of the other two results after I saw the flip since that would proclude him from being scum and would be useful. It was not though.
    His rationale for not shooting is believable/fine though.
    Ignoring the tantrum.

    You role is silly, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's untrue. Just. What an annoying role to have, if true.

    Quote from Killjoy »
    ZDS: I'm not immediately seeing you're point on you being cleared. That's the kind of analysis I plan to do on Wed though.
    Also, 1194 is specifically the kind of post I criticized you for never making. lol.
    IDK how you can say three of your PoE has made an effort to scumhunt though. That's BS. IDK about Ter, honestly. Her playstyle is foreign to me and IDK what her scumhunting looks like, but SLOTH? I call BS. He's put no thought into his scumread of me. None. I call BS (a second time, for emphasis.)

    FTR: Grapes in my POE too, but if that's wrong then this game likely turns into an unanalytical PoEfest that results in a loss, and I've tried too hard to let that happen.
    It really doesn't matter to me if you call it BS, but what about my scumread on you seems thoughtless? If thoughtless, why have people sheeped me on it? Do they agree and are full of ***** too or are they just doing it to shut me up?

    If Grape flips town, you go toMorrow. This is not up for debate. There won't be a PoEfest before this point and that should be obvious to you by now.
    You have not tried in an particular way I would call hard, in a pro-town world. You've tried hard, but as easily scum.

    Quote from Killjoy »
    Thinking about it more, Sloth's apathy makes him more likely town than not. I just got done with Elderlings where he cared too much. to go from that to this level of apathy is unlikely, and (no offense) but I don't think scum!him is good enough to fake this. Especially since his play in Elderlings was meant to simulate indifference, when he wasn't by far.
    Scum me is perfectly capable of putting a front of apathy.
    And if you are actually making the hilarious attempt to argue that I was trying to appear indifferent in Elderlings, you were either not reading that game of gaslighting to an insane degree.

    ZDS makes himself and his target ascetic. Ecophagy was an ascetic vigilante.

    If the last scum is a Janitor of some sort, what is the point of all this asceticism? The strongman is useless because ascetics only block non-killing abilities. They'd block Rhand, but Rhand wouldn't targt villagers anyways.
    Are ascetic and janitors related in some way? Could it nullify the janitor power since it's not a killing power?

    I'm not sure. It is possible Axel's role is just unflippable on its own, but I doubt it due to <redacted>.

    Sigh...annoying. Fine.

    @ALL you have 2 hours to make any final posts and/or thoughts, then I'll hammer.

    Although, I do want to bring this up again to our dear mod:
    All of his posts have been saying that the best way to get his attention is via Discord.
    already done.

    Honestly, I'd still prefer KJ but whatever gets the game rolling.
    Again, all I said is that I'd hammer - if you'd like to give him the chance to talk, all you gotta do is unvote.

    @Cantrip though I do strongly advocate for shorter Night phases in that case.

    In terms of actually having a scum agenda and fitting perfectly in a team with both dead scum, Grape >>>(a million >s)>>> Killjoy.
    I also super don't see how KJ is so unlikely to you - assuming that's what this is implying. Like, is he a townread?
    This seems...something. Meh.

    Well there's a surprise.



    VOTE: KILLJOY

    I'll check in every now and again to avoid a prod, but this is where we should be going today.
    @ me if you have any questions, I guess.
    So according to you the entire scumteam together started and pushed the small Jack wagon on Day 1?
    That would be extremely bold of Killjoy in particular (the wagon starter), and "bold" and "Killjoy" do not belong in the same sentence.
    I disagree that it's bold at all: Wagon starter is the safest place to be in any competing wagon.
    KJ jumping on it after his scumteam had would actually be a good point. But. Yeah.

    Quote from Slothful »

    I think it was Dork in the spec of Realms (where I was scum) that was going "why aren't people scumreading sloth for wanting to end the Day early, wasn't he against it in the past?"
    Which just goes to show how little Dork knows how to read me: I haven't been interested in prioritizing the entirety of the Day be used in quite a while - I've seen town talk themselves out of the correct choice way too many times for me to like the idea, and I never have wanted it when the conclusion is obvious and certain (i.e. now).
    Main difference is in Realms (iirc) you said that as a semi-joke in RVS and obviously did not actually care (much), here you are actually trying to maintain a fast pace and prevent pointless lulls.
    Oh, no. I was 100% serious then too, promise.
    I mean when there's actually stuff to discuss, by all means, keep it going.
    But I rarely find that that's the case for games with 2-week long Days. Usually you only need half as long, if that. But I digress.

    Quote from ZeDorkSlipeur »
    (1) KJ is far more likely to be the mafia's useful idiot than to be scum.
    (2) In terms of actually having a scum agenda and fitting perfectly in a team with both dead scum, Grape >>>(a million >s)>>> Killjoy.

    Therefore I am NOT voting KJ before Grape. I don't care about your 3-players consensus when we could just end the game toDay in a perfect town win.
    (1) I don't mean to be mean but that's kind of how I usually see Grape's town game. Maybe not idiot, morel ike...unintentionally scummy.

    (2) Dude did you miss the scum agenda I've been pointing out on KJ? Sighhhhh...

    Either way, if people jump to Grape, I'll hammer. Like I said, if I'm wrong great, game over. If I'm right I get to lord it over everyone.
    That's what we call a win/win.

    Dork, your post is nice and all but trying to convince us all that Grape has a high chance of being scum is sort of a waste of time? We're all already there.

    I just think KJ's more likely the correct one. Join us there (not now, wait till others have posted), and if it's wrong, then we go Grape.
    He’s saying we should kill Grapefruit instead of Killjoy, your royal obnoxiousness.
    I'm actually not trying to be obnoxious...this time.
    I'm honestly saying "dude, it's cool. We believe you. But I just think KJ's more likely."

    I mean, you've already said you'd prefer Grape, right?

    Oh yeah, ter - what are your KJ & Grape reads and why would you choose one over the other?
