How can I give a better reason when there's no content?

Yeah exactly, just feels lame to vote him yet again when it's just a crapshoot. I'm sure he will post eventually.

I guess the now policy around here is vote lurkers all the time though

Lurker lynches are always crapshoots, but if people aren't providing content then I have no issue voting for them.

It's also a small game so waiting for someone to come in and maybe perhaps provide some content on a later day isn't really a position I want to take where the game will probably only last a few days. If this were 20+ people where we know there's going to be 5 or more game days at a minimum I'd be willing to be more lenient in lurking during D1.

I'm not overly fond of that statement by Hal. It feels like a weird way of dampening suspicion without sticking his neck out.

I'm also about to be at a tailgate for a soccer game (go Juventus!) so I'll be around later, but spotty throughout the day.

this one.

Betrayer could still be scum in this game, just because he wasn't in those others.

People did give reasoning. His policy lynch statement, do you have any opinion on that?

Meh he could be but I like playing with him so I'd rather not kill him D1 yet again unless I actually think he is scummy

Policy lynch just seems like typical betrayer stuff if it didn't I wouldn't have an issue with voting him

Don't really expect this to convince anyone, just stating my objections

I'm choosing to interpret this as "The Mafia community no longer wants me to play". Might as well give the slot to someone else, since protesting does absolutely gently caress-all in the face of "well, we need to lynch someone and it's either you or a lurker because it's Day 1 and we can't figure out anything without night actions".

Thanks for the memories.

The case against me is "He wasn't here and he threw down a joke vote", and there's magically enough momentum that I'm the default choice even if I somehow pull a Night Zero cop investigation out of my rear end.

Participation isn't fixing that and you know it.

As I said, I want a replacement. I'm done.

Like I was voting Sandwolf and then he starting posting opinions so moved my vote to another people who hasn't been participating. Don't give this "woe is me" bullshit when literally all that's being asked of you is to give the slightest amount of participation in this game you signed up for.

I'm perfectly okay with my Hal vote. Considering he's not directly addressed me, I am concerned.

On a read-through this feels like the most fake content in the game so far. The original vote seemed to be intended as a jokephase vote and the way it morphed into "I am concerned because he didn't address my vote" doesn't feel genuine to me.

That was a garbage replace out, but I think it was alignment neutral, and MMT sweeping into the thread has already provided more content so my lurker bloodlust is satiated.

I don't think anyone is hardcore lurking anymore, so I think the best actual case is on Flam.

Or I'd daycop Bif because I really do think there's a solid chance peramene would make Audrey scum.

It's basically a mod meta read, but in the absence of any content it was a fine starting point. I think it's better to set aside at this point in lieu of focusing on actual game content though. Call it a 3-4 now?

That being said, that was a lovely whiny pissbaby replace-out on redneck nazgul's part and I'd still vote MMT purely on principle. MMT's catch on Jammy is pretty good though, I've done that kind of doubling-down on a jokephase vote before as scum.

Intelligent and bright, they explored a world that was new and strange to them. They liked it, they thought - a whole world just for them! They were dimly aware that a God had created them, was watching them; they called out to him, thanking him in a chittering language, before running off.


I am awake!

I'm doing a read through before I drop a vote on any one, but wanna say wow that was a lovely replace out.

Yeah kind of lame of Betrayer to take his ball and go but whatever. MMT is a solid replacement.

I would be ok with a vote on Flam, although I need to look him over one more time. I did think his original vote was pretty poor though.

The only thing that bothers me about Jammy is that he is being less obnoxious than he generally is as town, not sure if that is a reaction to the last few games where he got a lot of poo poo about it or if this is his more circumspect scum game.
