Gonna throw my vote on the ##vote Ixt pile primarily because I want to see if we can stop this from a No-lynch. But at the same time it seems like nobody is here.

Over a third of the game has fewer posts than the mod, there are 5 votes on people who can't be lynched, and I'm the voteleader in what is almost definitely going to be a no-cuddle. I'm considering self-voting and going off to play Valkyria Chronicles on steam just so we might actually have a cuddling.

A small tumbleweed rolls across the ground. There is nothing to stop it as it just rolls and rolls and rolls and rolls and rolls and... IT is at peace, happily rolling like nothing else would ever bother it. All this blank empty space, shoulda sent a poet but they just sent a single solitary tumbleweed. Yup

The Pit Awaits


I started to write another Terrordon post but I got a text a family member passed. I dunno what my posting will be like this week but I'll keep up my commitment if you all have some patience.

Despite telling people to just listen to merk, I don't want to vote Dr. Hurt. He might be scum but whatever. I'll vote JJ for being around near deadline but contributing a useless vote. I need to look at Ixtlilton again so I'm not sure yet on whether I'd continue to vote him. I will vote Ecco because I don't think he's being honest.

EccoRaven posted:

Ok jokevoting is now over.

Night 0 I received a one-shot dayvig (some kind of ray gun). The message said I have to use it Day 1 or else it'll blow up in my face and kill me Night 1.

I want to use it now because jokevoting is dumb but unlike literally every other dayvig in the world I am going to use it as the town sees fit.

Who should I shoot? Unacceptable answers: me, merk, asiina, or Ixtlilton.


EccoRaven posted:

The second quote you posted bothered me when I first read it, since I don't think anyone was actually arguing Met being a shitheel actually makes him scum in this game; it felt like Ixt was just browsing the thread very casually and wanted to appear helpful. I confess though that I am disinclined vote for him day 1 since he helped me out in a pinch back in September without complaining once.

So, it's been reasonably established that Ecco doesn't want to vote Ixtlilton for meta reasons. That is fine. However, then Ecco starts talking about the strength of the case on Ixtlilton as to why he's not voting. That's a horribly constructed sentence, sorry.

EccoRaven posted:

Nah I'm ignoring Ixt because I don't find the case that persuasive, and I like my feeling on Ernie, and Ernie is in the lead, so, I have no reason to sabotage it.

EccoRaven posted:

I said it was an ok case but I was disinclined to vote for him because of the extra-game stuff.

But Ernie stuff has happened since then, and again, he's in the lead, so.

EccoRaven posted:

I'm sorry Hurt, I never realized you were an eight-year old.

Ok I promise I'll be nicer from here on out!


I think people should vote for Ernie because I think his posting has been a little scummy. I think he's trying to game the game in the scum's favor, either by giving him an excuse for not posting well ("I don't want to be nightkilled!"), or (deviously) getting town players to post less townie making it harder for us to vote properly.

It's not a 100% solid case, it's maybe a B- Day 1 case, and honestly I'm willing to table it to later (especially if Meinberg actually does get an extra daykill).

The Ixt case to me is like a C+ Day 1 case. It's mostly based around Ixt making a few posts that seem weird, which, they were, but they're not so bad it's damning. I preferred the Ernie case to the Ixt case.

The Ecco case is one part "Ecco is trying to manipulate the game!", which someone might view as silly, but I'm nice now so I'm just saying fiery_valkyrie needs to reread the game because she seemed mistaken about the order of events. Then there's Asiina who voted for me from seemingly being on the "Ernie" side of the Debate. And Ernie's case is kinda scattered, I honestly don't 100% understand it but if people want me to respond to it I can.

And that's about it for cases right now in my view! Hurt did something with Motley that is a total shot in the dark, someone else wants us to vote for HiipFire for being mean... idk. It's a normal day 1.

I'm sure Ecco is going to argue that he can dislike a case for multiple reasons. I'd bet he's going to argue that it doesn't really matter why he was reluctant to vote Ixlilton. I'd guess he's going to make some good arguments I can't preempt because I can't anticipate them. I don't really care either way, no offense intended towards Ecco but I do not have the gumption present to fight him through all of day two. Someone else can pick this up if they want, I think there's a lot of scummy content to be found if you can put yourself in an Ecco mindset. I noticed a few times that he was making very vague arguments, saying that something was bad without giving any reason as to why. That caught my attention as uncharacteristic behavior.

Somberbrero posted:

I was being very honest the entire time.

Merk came out with an Ixt case. I said it was ok, but I was disinclined to vote for him for meta reasons. The Ernie stuff happened, I liked it, and I voted for it. Other people said I should vote for Ixt instead, but I said "it wasn't that persuasive," as in, "it's not so good that it's enough to get me off Ernie."

That's the Ecco Mindset: I didn't really want to vote for Ixt both because of meta reasons, but also because it wasn't as good, to me, as the Ernie case.

I think you're conflating the initial meta reasons as still being primarily why I was reluctant to vote for Ixt, and I think that's a misreading of my posts.

Additionally, I question to what extent the things you've listed are scummy. What benefit would I have, as scum, from not voting for Ixt early day 1, unless I suspect he is actually scum with me and I was trying to protect him? But how could anyone figure out in the first few posts of Day 1 who was scummy and who wasn't? And it certainly doesn't jive well with my later vote on Ixt, making him unambiguously the only reasonable vote candidate.

I just don't think this is a good post, Somber; I think it's a lot of words to trump up a whole lot of nothing.


Sorry about your loss.

I have two confessions to make.

First, I have barely been reading the thread, because of complicated real life bullshit that have got me avoiding anything too complex or straining. (This is also why I haven't updated my games yet.) So, I skimmed, and I'm going on gut reads, because that's all I've got.

Second, I already put in my night action. I said I can punch monsters, and I told the truth.

Two reasons:
1. Because his lovely non-case (which was one of the few things I did take the time to read) about everyone acting scummy is incredibly bad, and I don't know town Ernie to mishandle variant games that badly. That seems more like a Somberbrero thing to do.

2. Because me vigging him because I think he was scummy is internally consistent with his lovely non-case, and I am a sucker for dramatic irony.

Should we take this to mean that all 7 of those who went are monsters or was that just an unintentional classifying of everyone as a monster?

Does your power specifically say you can only punch monsters? I can do something that specifically involves robots, which is why I asked about his flavor. Recharger sounds like a role a robot would have in my opinion.

In this case "monster" was used as a generic term for all giant things - there may have been some robots or giant people included as well. Or maybe they were all monsters? Who can tell?

fiery_valkyrie posted:

A few things wrong with this post.

1) When I made the post criticizing the Ixt case, it was still the first day of Day 1. When I made the post commenting on my Ernie case, it was the last day of Day 1. Comparing the two isn't particularly fair, since with the former, very little had actually been said, while in the latter, an entire day's discussion had happened.

2) I said my case on Ernie was a B-, meaning, I wasn't super confident in it, but it wasn't terrible. It's a B-. If you get a B- in a class you kick yourself for not studying harder or whatever and you move on, it's not good, but it's not the end of the world.

Which when taken together leads to:
3) Somber is arguing, albeit indirectly, that I as scum must have believed Ixt was also scum (otherwise, why would it be scummy of me to be reluctant to vote for Ixt? He said it was a sign of dishonesty, that is, that I didn't want to vote Ixt because of dubious intentions). But in order for him to make that argument, he has to believe that I, in the first posts of Day 1 (not before an entire day's discussion had occurred), believed Ixt to be a scumbuddy, and therefore felt like I had to protect him. That kind of confidence means I would have had an A reading on Ixt - that feeling when you go into the exam and the only question is something you studied and know like the back of your hand.

I hope you see now that you are a little mistaken by what actually happened! I suggest in the future you withhold snarky one-liners until you make absolutely sure you have a good grasp of what people are saying. I say this as your friend, since I'm so friendly!
