I'd been happy, and I was happy still. For all to be accomplished,
for me to feel less lonely,
all that remained to hope
was that on the day of my execution
there should be a huge crowd of spectators and that they should
greet me with howls of execration.

"Power wolfing (aka "power playing as scum") is a strategy that relies heavily on forcing the town into submission and/or manipulatively guiding the town towards self-destruction by actively taking control of the game thread and deciding the agenda. It is a proactive strategy, the success of which is dependent on complete mafia teamwork and an aggressive, confident mentality."

No, the opposite.
It's when you blantantly support your buddy and aggressively criticize votes against them, and not bus.
Also making bold gambits ("hey put 5 votes on me") and then using you buddies to cooperate on getting Townies mis-snuggled with them (see 2Penny and CPig voting Leith D1.)

that hambeet effortpost is really good. my only counter is that none of my posts were made with any conviction on day 1 with the sole exception of the long one about deadline discourse. also im always suspicious of an easy lunch that encounters basically no resistance at all. im still puzzling over why scum apparently gave up on 2penny so early.

I did read all that, but I don't think OMGUS I don't like playing with this guy is a great reason to push someone for two days and I would think you'd have more but that's fine

This new statement about b- is much more rational than what you posted earlier that was "I won't vote for b- today or any day"

Hmmmm makes some cases on people besides lumpen

I didn't see Sal's vote until after I posted that diatribe. Since my case for Lumpen is virtually the same as my case for RF, after I saw Sal's post I thought it made more sense to double up on Lumpen rather than solovote again.

hmmmm yeah okay, like Hal I think I skipped the mention of lumpen in your first post.

Not Voting (3): Hal Incandenza, hambeet, Mr. Steak

With 13 alive, it's 7 votes to execute. The current deadline is January 28th, 2020 at 8 p.m. CST -- that's in about :siren: 5 hours, 38 minutes.:siren:

Put down a vote.

Name your three top suspects, let's get to consensus.

My earlier List is still accurate. I will happily vote any if B-minus1, CPig, or SalTheBard.

though i do admit sal has been acting a little strange for what i know of his playstyle.

first, let me put watcher votes on some people so i dont miss doing that before hammer.

as for scum, i think this is scumalong, but i would vote binus. and as a 3rd choice, sal.

it's now 10am my time so i'm at a computer instead of a phone in bed, it's a tough life.

##vote Sal for now, I'm not sure I buy the anger as a real thing and complaining about content game because noise is not a great argument for me - the complaining is as noisy as the game and produces less.

Okay here's a content game since I enjoyed the last one and i agree with the argument that responses to it are valuable because they are a new narrative that will be harder for scum to stay consistent with:

Who would you pull into a masonry if you could?

I mean we cuddled scum D1 (Yay Town), we lost a town and a 3p on N1 so Town can afford the miscuddle here. I'll go ahead and claim, let the chips fall where they may.

I'm a Independent Nation aligned Jailer. When I power up I can Jail everyone once, but then I lose my jailing power for the rest of the game. I'm sure this comes as no surprise, but I Jailed Lumpen on N1. I will keep my nation secret for now just to ensure that my "rival" doesn't insist on cuddling me to get their own powerup.
