Nature Abhors A Vacuum




Mr. Humalong posted:

The ghost of longwinded posting grabbed me and would not let go.

I came home from work last night to find my cat dead so I’m not in the greatest of moods today but I’ll switch my vote to AA closer to deadline to avoid a NL. I don’t know if there’s much more discussion to be had today, though.

It was a good post! I am so very sorry to hear about your cat. I dread the day that happens for me. I know I'll be devastated.

Ok, so yuming. Focusing on votes:

Nat20 for the vig
Solus for a ~feeling~
:siren:If you read nothing else in this post read this part DB, who she threw a vote at for having an anti-town role. She goes from posting this

yuming posted:

[*]Anon I think looks bad mostly for a lack of interest in scumhunting. I can see agreeing with me as either alignment but the lack of response and weak defense overall read more scum than town to me. Anon, come back and post more please! Worth noting that I have a personal bias here in that I was looking forward to playing together.

[*]Dick Bastardly claimed in his first post which I think is good form and leaves me more likely willing to leave him alone. idk, this is obviously a crazy game we probably don't want him at endgame but I am not interested in killing based on roles right away because I would rather focus on behavior.

She says that she would rather focus on killing for behavior rather than roles, and that ANarc's behavior makes her look bad. Two hours later, as soon as Anarc got to -4, she votes DB explicitly because his role is negative to the town. A quick change of an opinion to help push the vote away from a now-flipped scum she made excuses to not vote for multiple days. :siren:

Next vote is for sos.

Then she votes me, citing sos's post about me and calling me out for repeating the party line, which I've already gotten back to and pointed out that it's window dressing so she doesn't have to say "this is a lurker case".

Vote Huma for being a 3p

Back to me.

Sal for his fake claim

Then a vote for me for my play around Anarc, lack of curiosity, and hammers.

Nine votes. Three for me which come down to she thinks my pursuit of Anarc was bussing and I have lurked, 1 for humalong for being 3p, 1 for Sal for a fake claim, 1 for for sos for being caught out by hal's victory, 1 for DB for his role (after saying she didn't want to vote based on roles), 1 for Solus for a feeling, 1 for Nat20 for the vig.

Humalong says about yuming "She’s done a lot of compiling by which she gathers up everyone else’s reads and legwork to make herself appear helpful without actually having to make any reads herself", and if you read her post history you see that in a big way. She goes from, at the beginning of the game, being involved and on the front foot, to here at the end of the game being more settled in and just making these lists and keeping track of things.

I believe she is a werewolf. She continued to find excuses to not vote AnarcSoda and, very likely, saved Anarc to begin with by changing an opinion after 2 hours old and pushing on another target when it looked like Anarc might be in real danger. Her change in play style makes sense from the perspective of "I am on a team that is approaching endgame without having lost a member yet".

Thanks guys, he was always an indoor-outdoor cat (when I found him he was eating a pancake he pulled out of a dumpster, and after I took him in he would scratch the poo poo out of the furniture if you didn't let him out for a few hours) and he was somewhere between 9 and 12 years old so he had a pretty long life for an outdoor cat. It just sucked that I wasn't there for my little buddy in his last moments.

Anyway, the votes tell me everyone thinks AA is a bigger priority than yuming so ##vote AA. For what it's worth AA, I believe that you're a village fanatic. But the majority can't win with you :(

You will appear as Werewolf to any alignment investigative role, regardless of recruitment status. You are a member of the Werewolves, and you win when the Werewolves control the vote!

Mr. Humalong, you are the Alien Mother! When you carry out a kill, choose either ninja, juggernaut, or bulletproof: you become such for the duration of the night. You are a member of the Aliens, and you win when the Aliens control the vote! You know that soscannonballs is on your side, and you may recruit them into Alienchat by “killing” them. You have a factional kill, and have the highest priority in using it.



Meaning, as Chaoslord, Werewolf Shadowskin, is the sole survivor:

Shadowskin Role PM posted:

Chaoslord, you are the Shadowskin! At night, you may jail another player, roleblocking them and making them untargetable by any other player, by filling in the appropriate part of your character sheet. For every 4 players jailed, you obtain a oneshot self-redirect, allowing you to force a player’s action to target themselves. You are a Usurper member of the Werewolves, and you win when the Werewolves control the vote and the Pack Leader has died or lost a life! You know that Asphyxious is on your side, and you may recruit them into Werewolfchat by “killing” them. You have a factional kill, and have the lowest priority in using it.

There was a lot of "Right But For The Wrong Reasons" and this may be the first time it's ever frustrated me, ha.

The case I made against Anarc/Soda is 100% the case I would have made as a town players. My question to sos and others were genuine because although I knew about the Werewolves I didn't know what else was going on in the game and I really wanted to know. So yuming kept reading things wrongly but coming to the right conclusion and I just wanted to scream haha.

Like seriously:

yuming posted:

I am going to go ahead and ##vote chaoslord

His posts stand out as I'm rereading with the flips in mind with the same reason I gave yesterday (thanks sos!)

Repeating the party line and only commenting on what's already going on.

chaoslord posted:

Right? Survivor, ok, 3p. Miller, huh, that's a bit weird, especially given there's already another miller but ok. Has a kill and absorbs alignment?

So we have a miller vig and a survivor miller alignment absorber. Did these roles get generated by a markov chain or something?

This post reads like someone who knows there are traitor roles in the game ~fake content~

yuming correctly nailed me as a traitor even though that is a post that town chaoslord makes

e: I guess the takeaway is that "town chaoslord" posts very scummily, which, fair.

Also no fooling I really was working 12-16 hour days most of this game, my lurking was 100% because I'd get back to the hotel and go "I don't have it in me to mafia right now, maybe tomorrow will go better"

I was so waiting for people to discuss the werewolf usurper on the day AA got lynched, but nobody seemed to really bring it up.

Like, the case against ANarc while it might have been genuine, it should have also caused people to look at it as a bus given the 2 usurper roles that had flipped for the other 2 factions.
