Oh hey, a dayvig up for grabs. Guys, maybe handing out candy willy-nilly isn't a good idea? It only takes one gift to scum (without having any taken from them) for them to get an extra kill.

I'm assuming scum will get a dayvig regardless because while they can't Treat each other, it looks like they could Trick each other if they wanted to. So they have some means to redistribute the wealth of Diabolic Sweets.

True, but you only get one Trick. People can get to 3 unassisted, but to get 4 someone has to give you candy.

Still working out the numbers and 8 of us have tricked already. The most interesting statistic is that merk officially has been tricked out of all candy, though he's still able to get some back. Krell and Rarity were responsible for that. Of those two Krell's by far the most antagonistic with his trick.

Also this is a really scummy vote strategy as it justifies voting a player for something they haven't actually done yet but also shuts down discussion. It was used against me previously in The League by scum. In fact I'm willing to ##vote ernie. over it.

Harold Krell posted:

I find this type of behavior to be quite suspicious. This is only the first day, and you say we can trust you to use a day-vig in the most town-way possible? Who can you determine to be scum so early into the game?

Also, you are being quite defensive about not being scum, which is a common ploy for scum to make. If you really weren't scum, you should have probably done something more modest like say, "I don't necessarily need the candy, but I do hope that whomever does get the day-vig skill uses it properly."

I don't know if you're new or not, but being greedy and glib with your actions usually results in a bad way (I, of all people should know. I've caused quite the pickle for myself in my heyday ;)). Even so, even if you were town, I think you might be too green to handle such a responsibility, so just in case there are people gullible enough to fall for something so blunt, I'm going to temper your action with one of my own:

Dropping someone to 0 could also be a good move if they're scum since they can't do poo poo then. But since its D1 and hard to really case someone, that's not really something to aim for. Not likely to work out right now and all.

It's a fair point that you make that it would make sense as scum to trick the people that you'd be more scared/cautious of, and Merk could be that person to some. However, why belittle your own point?

Ac is right I did trick here. Because I'm a devil-may-care rebel I'm willing to tell you I've given away 2 candies so now have zero at the moment thanks to someone.

Mostly just due to the numbers. Not particularly great odds that any one person dropping to 0 would give useful information.

Scum save their tricks until late, hope that one of them gets an extra candy. Once one does, that scum tricks, four candies, kill shot. They can't all manage it, but one could and probably will try to.

I disagree on Krell; he made the first really in-depth post of the game and in it called merk potentially green, because they've rarely played together in the past. He's also suggesting merk might be scummy, but his action was to try and keep the kill away from merk which fits if he thinks merk shouldn't be trusted with the kill regardless of alignment. It feels genuine and is a bad case because of who merk, specifically, is.
