I did a Thing, and yes, I picked, but it was a choice among limited options rather than free range.Quote from Tubba Fett »@Cantrip
I know you said you weren’t going to elaborate more right now, but sod it, I’m asking.
Did you Do A Thing, or was The Thing fine for you? Someone compared your role to KJ from DiTF, and as I recall KJ had no say in who was checked. If you picked, why did you pick Re?
I did (2121, in which I responded to you...why are you not reading my posts?).Quote from KamikazeArchon »@Cantrip: Going to give a justification for that vote?
Also, can you explain why you don't like Winds' pre-flip reaction to X=Y's shot?
GJ, Your double fishing expedition: last line of 2111, only line of 2112. The former is a side-eyes invitation to me to confirm or deny how my role works, and the latter is a general push in the direction of "any reason we shouldn't be hinting/claiming alt-win-cons". And you didn't answer my question as to why you thought I was voting you because of my position on Vaimes/Chris.
Also, I got the impression from your 2175 that you were mildly shaming Killjoy, saying that KJ's reason for not voting Rhand (he felt bad pressuring someone with time constraints) is a poor one, but then I feel like you offered up a similarly weak reason in 2181 for not voting Rhand D1 (you would have felt bad if Rhand had flipped town, given DitF). I feel like there's a crack in that mindset, but maybe I'm misreading your 2175?
Killjoy, you seem to be finding a lot of opportunities to shade Rhand without committing to an attack on him. It feels very sneaky. As far as I can tell, your only real volley was in 1454, where you declared his process was "off", and that you didn't believe he was being genuine. I know he hasn't exactly posted the full works of Tolstoy since then, but what--if anything--have you seen in his posts after that point?
Tubba, This might sound strange, but I feel sorta honored to be one of your "if I had two shots" targets, especially when Tom's your other. I would love to be leading this game right now, but that work project I mentioned that was supposed to be done two weeks ago? Yeah, I *just* finally got it sorted out today, and that was with a lot of extra night and weekend work. So I've been a little short on time. This weekend being a holiday weekend is going to mean that I can't post a ton, but I should be able to post some, and then I should have more time in general starting Tuesday (yes, I realize a deadline is coming up shortly after that, but can't be helped). Anyway, I don't think I've *ever* been the choice of a "who would you vig, go", and it makes me smile a little.
As for X=Y's shot choice...I feel like it makes him more likely town than scum. There was a lot of discussion of "good" vig targets before he named 1053 as his target in 2182, enough possibilities (Hunger/Tubba/Kami/GJ/Rhand/Tom/me) that scum could have cherry-picked town from among the discussion subjects and made things easy for himself. There's a slight possibility that scum!X=Y saw something that made him think 1053 was a strong power role (or maybe there was a rolecop, I guess), but otherwise, I don't think scum sees that smorgasbord of "good" vig targets and veers off into 1053 territory. I'm not a fan of how he just dropped a bomb in the thread without discussion (and I'd be sorta put out if he had targeted me), but since he said he was really busy, I can understand why he did what he did.
Also, I am somewhat pleasantly surprised, even with a town target, as I had it in my head that Rod had fake-dayvigged, Shadow had given fun flavor as mods generally should do, and Rod had capitalized on that with a "oh, bummer it's a 50-50 shot, wink, wink" to draw the NK.
Tom, I think I remember you doing running votal analysis as scum in a previous game, but I don't have time to research it. Do you do that as either alignment? It's making me want to vig you because if you come up scum, there's a lot to be said for which votecounts you're highlighting and how.
Vaimes, I already indicated that I think the throne would be wasted on me (not that I think I'm going to suddenly be thrust into power any time soon, given my abysmal activity).
Shinichi, you are maintaining a healthy post count, but I don't see very much substance to your posts. That is, there seems to be a lot of fluff there. Maybe that's a byproduct of how you catch up (as demonstrated in 2213 where you ponder why 1053 was the target when X=Y had already given a reason), but it still feels...like you're not really committing on anything. So do me a favor: point to two strong stances you've taken within the last 15 posts you've made. I say two because there is at least one in there, but I want to see you find one more.
@All: I'm feeling stoked because my work issue has finally been resolved and I'm going to be able to participate at least a little more than before (hopefully a LOT more), so an invitation: it's open season on Cantripmancer. Come at me. Ask me questions. Attack. Smear. Vote. Force me to engage so I don't squander my newfound free time on frivolities.
