Things we know now that Merk has flipped:

Scum has some sort of hypnotist-type role

Merk's action was redirected to me from himself night 3
If merk was busdriven with me QPQs results were unchanged
But, if we were busdriven shouldn't I have been jailed night 3 and not merk?




Other actions from claimed players:
Imgay has claimed he was stopped since after night 2
Tracker works really well in conjunction with a hypnotist,could Imgay be scum?

If we trust QPQ, one of birdstrike and Narc is scum
Based on claims, I think inventor is more likely town than item thief plus I didn't understand bird's reasoning for stealing Keane's shield
Based on interaction in thread, I though Narc was scummy D1 and her attempted hammer D4 looked really bad

I also think Opop is scum.


Also, my favorite ice cream flavour is cheesecake.

Today's challenge is also open to everyone. It is a Battle of Wits. I have three riddles for you. Answer them as best you can, via PM. Bear in mind that each player will get only ONE CHANCE to answer. If you send me a set of answers, you cannot change them, so choose wisely. You will have until approximately 9 PM EDT to get me your responses, and the player (or players) with the most correct answers will win a very special prize. So, without further ado, LET THE CHALLENGE BEGIN!

#1
Never still and never sated,
To a life of hunger fated,
Cursed to eat and not to drink,
Nor to love, or laugh, or think,
Few things will I not consume,
From city square to wild bloom,
I have no fear and have no shame,
And to you, too, I will lay claim


#2
Of rooms and doors, a home is made,
But nothing in it sleeps,
The tenant sprints or runs or walks,
Or even softly creeps.
Two entryways and two ways out,
But not a single seat
With happy humour, guests will dance,
Unceasing, to the beat


#3
You know me now by many names,
You run from me at night,
And running is all you can do,
For I evade your sight.
So hide and cower, flee from me,
Resign yourselves to fright,
For I can live and never die,
So long as there is light


Good luck!

If this is true, it would be best to try and find the scum Svengali.

Assuming everyone was truthful, from last night's results we can rule out:

CPig - Hiding or whatever
Ecco - jailed
imgay - tracked merk
PinMom - trying and failing to kill CPig
Roydrowsy - jailing Ecco
I was being a naughty thief, and merk is the one apparently hypnotised into doing the deed.

I'm ruling out garth because merk said the same thing happened N1, and imgay tracked garth to nowhere on N1. I also think it's unlikely that AnonNarc's role is inventor plus hypnotiser.

This leaves

CCKeane
King Burgundy
Opop
QPQ

as my possible candidates for nasty Svengali, assuming of course nobody is lying.

Okay, Garth might be scum, yeah.

I really think birdstrike is scum, guys. So far, we have no reason to doubt that QPQ is lying about his ability. That means birdstrike has to be scum, since I'm not.

Looking back at his post history, his interactions with Ecco are really weird. He accuses Ecco of being scum the first couple days, and then drops it completely for a very long time. So once Ecco flipped, it's easy for him to be able to say "see, I thought he was scum from the beginning."

The interaction over the stolen item is so ridiculous it looks almost contrived. Just look at this post. It screams "Look at us, we're not on the same team!" It's not even a vote for scum, it's an OMGUS.

Birdstrike posted:

AnonNarc did you even see the posts where Ecco accuses me of stealing her vig, and then I vote her for defaming me?

Also, Ecco gave him one of the silver swords (1-shot vig). It would be awfully convenient for scum to have that extra vig, and this was before we knew he was a thief so we weren't suspicious.

I know role does not necessarily correlate with alignment, but the way birdstrike has been using his role is scummy.

He stole a 1-shot protection on N1, which he still has, unless he used it last night. I'm basing this on this post

Birdstrike posted:

Public townie plans we all agree on are generally stupid but the night plan I am thinking of is

Assuming that AnonNarc's invisibility ring is protective, she bestows it on Keane.

Assuming that we lynch scum merk,
Roy should jail garth (claimed vanilla town)

Scum won't hit me or AnonNarc as it will provide certainty to the other's alignment.

CPig can protect himself? (maybe? Don't answer that)

I will pick someone from the remainder to protect.

Thoughts?

That's a long time to hold on to a protective item and not use it.

He also stole keane's shield, and when questioned about it, came up with an excuse that was some elaborate plan which involved him knowing exactly what item he was going to steal and what he was going to do the next day when scum targeted him.

Birdstrike posted:

:rip: plan

I stole back the challenge item which was rightfully mine from QPQ on Night 1. It is a 1x-doctor.

I figured that as long as scum thought you had a shield you wouldn't be attacked, and if it came out you lost it at some point I would use the healing kit on you.

Keane succinctly described the act here:

CCKeane posted:

Okay so basically walk me through the logic here.

You steal items from people, including an item you believe to be a protective item from someone you believe to be town, and then what?

Your plan would have only worked if I didn't say anything, and why would I have stayed silent? Can you walk me through this?

It's all very suspicious.
