His weaksauce defense of Rarity will look a lot worse if and when Rarity flips scum, but otherwise I don't feel too strongly about him either way.

Byers did the exact same thing, almost word for word, that Rarity did.

This makes a lot of sense. I'm thinking they're probably both scum. I'd vote byers first though bc if Rarity is posting stuff like that thinking we don't know its fakeclaiming, they're probably pretty dumb/weak (sorrynotsorry) and I'd rather get the strong player out first.

I don't really like the case against Rarity either because fakeclaiming on your first contentpost seems like a super dumb thing to do, but straight-up claiming your actual flavor is pretty dumb too. If you don't know who your character is, ask outside the thread! Ask someone who has nothing to do with SA so there's no chance of spoiling the jury.

I'd rather vote for a lurker than somebody who's said anything at all, but with 10 votes to kill I don't know if it'd be possible to build a bandwagon on someone in particular in time. I'll vote for Rarity or Byers if it'll make 'em claim, though, or if nobody better comes along.

A lurker vote is pretty bad, especially on D1.

So you don't like x, but also not y, and here's some obvious advice. Will vote for people to force them to claim (what?), but would lunch a lurker or pretty much anybody.

You got my vote. ##vote Squid

That's my inexperience showing through then. I guess there's still plenty of time for more people to come around and share their two cents, but in the meantime I looked at Rarity's posts again and everything after Ecco's "aha your scum is showing!" feels like trying to hope that people ignore Ecco without having to contribute anything herself. That makes me feel a little better about the case.

I'm pretty sure Rarity has a history of early claims for no reason. I'd expect more from Byers though. However your posting is the scummiest thus far.

I've played in a couple of games before, but day 1 is still really confusing to me, especially since there's been clear choices before (like the guy saying "hey we shouldn't kill anyone on day 1"). I mostly to see everybody say something before I jump on the first bandwagon of the game.

To clarify since I don't mean to be a shitposter: I think "X is dumb, but X is dumb too" is just kinda pointless, particularly when referring to a joke phase post. If Rarity is scum, I'm willing to bet that's not even her provided fakeclaim. Then you state willingness to make a lurker vote, which is a soft option pretty much all the time. Then you're encouraging day 1 claims? Really?

Yeah, if we're actually going to take Ecco's case seriously then I have to point out claiming flavour on D1 is a thing I just do sometimes. Utopfia is a recent example of this.

Hi, I'm confirming. Sorry for lurking first day, I had a lot going on but will have free time daily for the remainder of the game. I've kept up with the thread. I'm pretty new to mafia, I played two or three games a long time ago and this is my second game since then. No idea yet who to vote first day.

Flavor will likely offer clues to role and/or alignment, so be VERY careful about making flavor arguments or claiming your flavor. If you really want to, you can, but don't say you weren't warned.

So I made her but my screenshots are horked up for some reason. Im up to just getting into The first little dungeon where you get the golden claw for that guy.

Ive decided to go one handed/magic So I have a nice steel mace I found and I managed to get a decent array of useful spells that are not destruction.

I have the illusion spells clairvoyance, Fury, and Soothe
Ive also been using restoration and alteration for healing and buffs for the sake of my sanity.
Combat has been mostly just casting fury from afar so the enemies attack each other and the remaining one comes after me and I kill it with my mace in one good power hit.

The frostfall stuff is cool and you look neat with the full array of cold weather gear and camping gear.

I found a robe of lesser restoration and chose the mage guardian stone.

I sided with the imperial guy and am going to side with them all the way in the future.

Thats about it so far, I wish I had all the screenshots I took but oh well.


On to mafia

Its too early for this poo poo people.

All the serious arguments are dumb and stupid right now.
