Okay I will say a real thing which is that DHD's ability makes no sense. Realistically it can only turn a town into a scum. It can't work on turning a scum into a town because then that person would just out the entire scum team end of game. So given that we have an ability that turns town into scum, that's much more likely to be a scum ability, perhaps a 3P ability at best, but certainly not a town ability.

##vote DHD

Now back to your regularly scheduled fanart.

I think this reasoning is suspicious at best, and I feel confident that ##vote Asiina is the best choice actually.

Pinterest Mom

Asiina's reasoning seems very solid to me?

How much of a chance do you think there is that there could be a role that would turn a scum to town and allow them to sell out the entire scum team? That would break the game.

Turning a townie scum, though, that makes sense. So DHD's power can only be pro-scum.

the power would have to have a contingency for use on an already-scum, like their win condition or power role changes but not their alignment, or they move frmo one scum team to another scum team, or if the new "random" alignment of the scum is non-scum, the scum dies

i guess, but that's not the power dhd gave us.

breaks the game. they get to sell out their old scum buddies and get towns of townie cred.

quote:

or if the new "random" alignment of the scum is non-scum, the scum dies

still an anti-town power.

say 1/3 of the game is scum, 2/3 town, and the power has 1/3 chance of turning the player scum.

1/9 of the time, you turn a scum town and kill them
2/9 of the time, you turn a scum scum
2/9 of the time, you turn a town scum
4/9 of the time, you turn a town town

that a 1/9 advantage to scum. (2/9 of +1 scum -1 town, 1/9 of -1 scum)

(you can do the math while including 3p, but the bottom line doesn't change.)

I targetted Poque with a one shot ability that randomed his role, alignment and win condition, and the result PM said that it was successful, so even if he was being open about his role, it is most likely different today.

I don't know how this ability is supposed to be useful for town, but targetting Poque sounded funnier than helping Diqnol with a boring role.

DuckHuntDog posted:

She isn't more likely, I just don't think Poque is actually scum and I don't feel particularly great about Yuming.

Why in the world would I openly claim this if I were scum? You guys are dumb. I know it isn't a particularly pro-town power, but that is exactly why I used it on someone who was concievably scum and then claimed it immediately.

He was being goofy and didn't magically change after the randomization. His breadcrumb on the randomization does read like someone who had their alignment changed to something non-town, but who knows.
