I think that Ernie's right, because anyone who seems super town-sided would be easy enough to pick as a target even with a mafia that doesn't know each other, and obfuscating your intentions to some degree helps keep the mafia from being able to make coordinated decisions.

I do think "therefore fullclaim" is a loving bonkers logical endpoint to take that, however, but at the same time with dayvig already burned on a townie (if admittedly one nobody liked) I'm not really sure that's enough to vote Ernie. If we mess up and Ernie's just playing by his own rules (IE, seem scummy to draw attention away from scum trying to target him), then we're down two townies on day one going into night one. That strikes me as... suboptimal at best.

Wow this post is loving incomprehensible in some places, Edit By Way Of Post.

As always, I speak for Terrordon. Terrordon has given all loyal subjects the weekend off in celebration of His imminent victory over all monsters. The disloyal subjects shall envy the dead.

Girlfriend is out of town this weekend and she took my laptop. Don't wanna lynch Ernie or Meinstein, wanna lynch Dugong or JJ(he will forget the game exists at some point).

Hey, I am very aware of this game existing!

What game are we playing, again?

Nah I disagree with Ernie. Each player has different views of what is and isn't scummy. By saying that everyone should act scummy it just makes the later days harder as anyone can use the defence of "oh I was told to act scummy".

The probability is that a scum won't get killed by their own at night but they won't all vote for the same target anyway. Acting scummy is not the right way to go.

I agree with Ernie. Anyone who is super obviously town is an easy coordinated attack for scum. The more doubt scum has that town players are actually town, the more likely scum are to hit their own with the night kill.

Everyone needs to walk this line, not just scum.

This works the other way round as well the more doubt town has about who the scum are the more likely we are to lynch town - We could just as easily split uncoordinated votes by the majority of us being "obviously" towny as by all playing borderline scummy and loving up the ability to scumhunt.

I think ecco's right on the money, both about this and about ernie's full-claim proposal being terrible.

But I also note that Hiipfire did a yuming on me and hasn't come back to give any opinions on anything so more people should start voting him imo.

Day Event: KRAKA-SOW-A

The Tropical Zone

Something is stirring inside the aforementioned volcano in the middle of the zone. Something... porky. Could it be that the great skin of Hogzilla survived its shove into a lava bath? Could Hogzilla's bacon not be as fried as everyone thought?

Nope.



It appears we've got a stew going, and one that's fixin' to overflow it's pot at that! This is bad news for all of Monster Island. If that volcano is allowed to go off it could be extremely dangerous. Who knows what could happen!

It will take 7 Monsters/Robots to stop the volcano from erupting!


Event Rules
  • The first 7 monsters/robots who ##volunteer will be chosen to go up to the volcano to stop it from erupting.
  • If one of the volunteers is smashed/puppy cuddled the next person to volunteer after the flip will take their place.
  • Players who volunteer will be unable to do a night action tonight.
  • During the night each volunteer will send CPig either ##support or ##sabotage the mission.
  • If 7 players choose to support the mission, the volcano will be filled up and there will be a benefit. If less than 7 players choose support the mission will fail and there will be consequences.

Hah! Even I, Krak, herald of Terrordon laugh at this. Terrordon has proof against missiles fired by rude and hateful soldiers, so of course He has proof against bullets. Terrordon's wrath is matched only by his generosity, He has instructed me to offer you a boon for amusing Him so. This is an honor few have ever been allowed, cherish your day Armored Arachnid.

Oh mighty Terrordon. If I can have the honor, it would please me to go on a one-on-one game of basketball against your mightiness. I may not be as powerful as the greatness of Terrordon but it would please me to attempt to slam a dunk with your almighty mercilessness.

As for volunteering for the volcano, that's not very good odds that the volcano is gonna get saved. It's basically all or nothing.

Also Meinberg's latest post reads like my writing in highschool: way too many commas. Opop is a good person too, although terrible he is a man who does things and therefore cannot be lynched. I'd vote Punti just based his "I'd vote" post and his reasoning for the other guy.
