it takes me a day to make an item, I can only make each one once. Grapple is always sad because decepticons are wrecking the cool poo poo he makes. so presuming I survive tonight I have a couple more tricks to play. figured it was worth using watcher last night because we're so close to the wire now.

Oh ok so you don't have a doctor box on hand to give to splode tonight, you would have to spend tonight making it, because if you had one you would've giving it to bell jar last night.

Also you mean to tell me that you've been an inventor since d1, and of the three gadgets you could've made and deployed assuming you've used them ASAP, possibly more if you've been making but not using them, none of them were a doc's box despite constantly having people who needed protecting?

Inventors are typically one-shot for each thing they can make. Our actual Doctor didn't do a great job of that either, really.

On the basis of pure timing & votes I'd lean towards tbk being scum. But from the sounds of it tbk is also a really easy role to confirm: he just gives one of his gadgets to someone who has to be town, and they confirm with us. But there's a problem with that: if there's two scum, then they obviously just hand say they 'hand' it to the other. But, I think it's a risk worth taking, and it can be backtracked at a later point to finger another scum.

So are we go for the GSC vote? Nothing else to discuss?

Okay, back home on the computer but I am totally losing the plot here.

I thought GSC and Ken were both in pretty much the same quiet-scummy basket before GSC came out with his watcher stuff. After looking at their posting histories more closely, they seem even closer. If neither of them ever roleclaimed though, I'd have been leaning towards GSC being more scummy, since he's been showing up more to inflate his count with noise but not vote any more often. I only started thining GSC was townie because his watcher stuff seemed to check out, although his upgraded-transformo-watcher claim was unusual. But now that this came around, his claim just sounds more unusual than an inventor existing.

And I between the two of them I'm leaning this way anyway. Everyone's had their say now, right?

There was an Autobot who never really wanted to fight.

An Autobot who just wanted to help his friends.

An Autobot who enjoyed learning and observing, but avoided direct conflict.

An Autobot who helped his friends find the Decepticons.

An Autobot who helped his friends kill other Autobots, I guess??

When his friends died he decided enough was enough.

He took to the fight. He applied his skills as a keen observer.

He told all his friends that he was going to help them.

And they unanimously elected to murder him.

Well done.



HEROIC AUTOBOT HOUND was screwed over.

DAY OF THE DECEPTICONS

Episode 8

This whole situation has been good for him. Finding traitors, busting Decepticon heads, taking risks; he was forged for this.

Cliffjumper: "Still plenty of suspicious 'bots around, but I'll get 'em. Nobody escapes my sights..."

Cliffjumper patrols the area outside the ship, with all the cons he's bagged, no doubt they're looking to flee soon.

Cliffjumper: "This would be the perfect place to set an ambush!" he says gleefully.

Forward-thinking Decepticon: "Assessment: Accurate."



Cliffjumper turns to face his attacker, finger on the trigger.

Cliffjumper: "heh. You've got guts coming after me, but no brains. I think we know how this plays out.."

Forward-thinking Decepticon: "Agreed. Target Cliffjumper: highly dangerous. Playing field: leveled."

The Decepticon reveals that it was, unlike Cliffjumper, not foolish enough to be alone.





HEROIC AUTOBOT BADASS CLIFFJUMPER has been ravaged!

Yeah, I peeped on TBK and saw he was blocked. So there must be another one left. Given any thoughts to who you're blocking tonight, Milky? Might as well take a shot at it, instead of worrying anymore about tripping up the town power roles.

DAY OF THE DECEPTICONS

Episode 9

To solidify DECEPTICON victory, a more nuanced approach is required. To this end GRIMLOCK is approached by someone very trustworthy to take action!

Friendly face: "Hey Grimlock, notice how things started going bad right around when Prime was wounded?"

Grimlock: "YES. ME GRIMLOCK VERY OBSERVANT!"

Friendly face: "Prime is a weak leader - we need someone strong like you!"

Grimlock: "YES, ME GRIMLOCK STRONGEST THERE IS!"

Friendly face: "so, go kill Prime. Take his place as leader of the Autobots!"



Grimlock: "UHH NO. ME GRIMLOCK KING, NOT COLD BLOODED KILLER."

Friendly face: "But without your leadership even more will die! You'll be a bad king!"

Grimlock: "HMMM GOOD POINT!"



Grimlock: "SORRY OPTIMUS PRIME, THIS AM FOR OWN GOOD!"

Autobots: "GRIMLOCK, NO!!"

Grimlock: "IT OKAY AUTOBOTS, ME GOT THIS!!"



HEROIC AUTOBOT FIGHTER GRIMLOCK was put down!
