I mean, really. If you find Keane scummy, vote for him. He's done enough by other peoples' metrics to warrant it.

Don't start making up improbable things and then give them a sugarcoating of ~setup speculation~.

Yeah that'd be pretty nutty.

Please don't feel pressured to explain how "Scum get a nightkill in addition to anything else they can do" and "Scum get a daykill in addition to anything else they can do" are equivalent in terms of logic and sense.

I got news for you people who have faith in me - I don't know who the last scum is and I'm having a lot of trouble trying to figure it out. I'd actually prefer if you guys talked about it more without me so I could, you know, get a better idea.

I'm still fairly confident that Juanito is town. Betrayer has something of a bad attitude, and that pings my scumdar. But I'm not sure if I'm seeing genuine scumminess or just a bad tone. That said, I'm still fairly sure about my "scum in battle can't do night kills" theory. The ability to sabotage a battle would be far more powerful than taking out a single town at night. And so, I still have my sights set largely on CCKeane.

In fact, I'll do this.

Baseless speculation is baseless speculation.

Looking at MEDS' interactions and opinions, it could just as easily be him. I dunno, I think I'm going to stick with Keane just because I've had a gut read on him this whole game and I should listen to that. I wish I felt more sure, I've liked Keane's posting a lot more in the past day and I'm not sure why he used his vig the way he did if he is scum.

Just a reminder that these posts were made.

MEDS CURE SCHIZOS posted:

Oh, and I figure I might as well flesh these out a little bit more.

For Pinterest, it's merely a case of being almost sort of the vote leader yesterday. The bandwagon switching off of him doesn't exonerate him of anything: If it had swapped to a townsperson, it might almost be damning. Since the bandwagon shifting nailed scum, I'm going to chalk it up to being a fluke. Not a heavy scum read, but one nevertheless.

I really don't like it when people go "Yay, we got scum". For one, it's useless. Number two, it's the sort of thing that someone could use to try and appear like they have the town's best interests in mind.

Secondly, while I have no idea what happened in the carnage of battle, Juanito going "Huh. Did they all hit the front row?" is the sort of harmless questioning that I'd offer up to nudge the town. I'm not yet ready to declare that we didn't have scum in the battle party simply because these results could be atypical or standard fare, but if I had to choose, I'd say it's Juanito.

I'm tentatively marking Fitty as town because he hasn't rubbed me the wrong way yet.


MEDS CURE SCHIZOS posted:

Having taken an extended absence from Mafia a while back, I don't know anything about how PM plays or functions, so I'm going to assume he's somewhat new.

On one hand, I can see him as scum trying to steer people away from himself and who we now know to be his scum buddy.

On the other hand, people relatively new to Mafia tend to get burned on making hard reads and cases and shy away from them until they actually get comfortable with both the concept that dying to make a good point is sometimes worth it and that you don't need a damned investigative result to be able to make a firm principled stand.

If the Baron's against Juanito and I don't get confirmation or denial on PM's experience (or lack thereof), color me undecided for the time being. We have a bit of time to deliberate.

This is a really good point.

Diq, did you know anything about Keane's vig before he mentioned it or was it really completely a secret?

Of course, Keane could also be using this vig to get town cred, but he could have done some damage to town if he wanted to.

I knew he had the poisoner ability and I knew it had been souped up. I didn't know or expect it to be a vig.

For this phase, you should attack everybody except Capps. If he's as tanky as I am, he won't die.

Apostate is a damage mitigator. She's going to protect Capps probably. It might be good to shoot LM and her so next fight we can murder them.
