Hrm. Withholding my vote for now. I'd like to see how things shape up. I'm not a tester, a joker, or a lurker. I don't know where that leaves me, but I can't help but feel that Byers just alienated a few people, including myself. As well, I don't trust Somberbrero.

I guess I'll find out soon where the leaves me.

I'm kinda curious why you'd feel alienated by what Byers said - why don't you think you'd be considered a tester?

I read into it too much. Basically, anyone who's a Tester but has middling skill can side either way (if we choose to separate ourselves by Byers v Somberbrero) and be relatively safe for the early game. I jumped the gun. Sorry, Byers.

The way I interpreted it is that if you're trying to win whatsoever, you're a tester. Jokers are just trying to slow others down, lurkers aren't doing anything but keeping their information guarded.

Strong Mouse posted:

Why would you put your own word in your submission. You know what and where it is, you should try to figure out other words. From what people have put in the thread, and my own submissions, I am working at writing a list of words that aren't correct.

Though it's mostly so I don't guess the same words multiple times.

I didn't think much of today's submission because it's guessing random seven letter words and any pings are going to be dumb luck.

I'll tell you that if I was going to guess another word it would have been "warthog", feel free to guess that on your list and see if you get anything from it.

I was thinking about that. Winv and him already have The De Facto Alliance and he's implied merk will want to be part of it and PoP seems to like the idea as well.

Following Byers' proposition for voting gives everyone a chance to play, following Somber's doesn't.

Somberbrero posted:

Just as a point of order, my goal isn't the elimination of all superior players. That's impossible to determine and has some weird connotations. I do think that I would probably lose any kind of logic puzzle game to you, winvirus, or merk, so it seems like poor play to try and work around that. I don't know anyone else here well enough to make that kind of determination about them, but I'm willing to take my chances because I signed up for this

How can you write this and pretend to want anything other than the first three boots to be Byers, winvirus, and merk?

Hi my inbox is cleaned out now, although I'm kinda exhausted (I'm doing a lovely temping thing and had to get up at like 5:30 this morning for it)

Somberbrero posted:

The out of thread communication has me really worried. This game is going to be super susceptible to ringleading, with enough contacts I would be concerned about a D3 or D4 solve from someone well-connected. I'm leaning towards Pecota for today because of that reason.

No vote for you today Winvirus, happy birthday.

Two people submitted me, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one with that as the case.

Thanatosian posted:

Right, but because of the way out-of-thread communication works in this game, the people you're partnered with PM-wise early on are going to be your natural coalition partners throughout the game.

Which puts you and Rarity on a team with this mysterious third person, and PoP, Winvirus, and Byers on another team. Clearly, both of those are possibly larger than that, but I hope not, because otherwise I'm hosed. Or maybe I hope so, because then I get to be kingmaker? Who knows. Or maybe the third is a connection between those two groups...

Thanatosian, who are you communicating with?

If they're sitting on enough words to just be able to give them away, that doesn't really bode well for those of us who aren't recipients of their largesse.

How long after the start of a day would you wait without hearing from someone you have an open line of communication with before assuming they don't want to exchange information? It's been over 24 hours, I assume they've had a chance to send a PM if they wanted to.

I kind of want to see what Somber says when I talk to him out of thread, so ##vote winvirus to keep my hope alive.

At this point in the game, I don't really think anybody is more of a threat than anybody else.

Did he tell you anything about who else was in contact with him? There should be a pretty short list of who potentially lied to him if that's really the case.

MildManeredManikin posted:

Well I'll just post this in the thread then.

These were the communication lines on the first day we could speak:


Thana told me ActingPower stonewalled him and never responded. This is clearly not true, since Somber gave out the same word that Thano gave me.

I think either it's AP's word that AP gave to Thana and Somber or it's Thana's word that SP basically stole, shared to his rarity/somber alliance and then somber passed it off as his word.
