I'm not into the lore or anything, but there's some cool stuff hidden away in the quests. I'm especially a big fan of the Daedric quests, though those are a lot easier to stumble onto in Skyrim than in previous games.

Yeah it really, really depends. It is possible to max out on everything but you'd have to play for such an obscenely long time or be doing stuff that gets you experience all the time. I've basically done everything in the game and I've never come close to the level cap.

In my current run, I've prestiged my primary combat stats a couple times, and I've engaged in the economic feedback loop enough to prestige all of my trade skills multiple times.

I'd rather vote for a lurker than somebody who's said anything at all, but with 10 votes to kill I don't know if it'd be possible to build a bandwagon on someone in particular in time. I'll vote for Rarity or Byers if it'll make 'em claim, though, or if nobody better comes along.

A lurker vote is pretty bad, especially on D1.

Voting for Rarity because of the flavor claim, whether true or false, is pretty scrub tier play, to be honest. If there's another case in there, I'm not seeing it, so if you're voting for Rarity for a reason besides her claim, then please illuminate.

While my initial vote on Chili was a joke vote, his behavior has made me feel sufficiently confident in leaving my vote where it is.

Joking around?

Okay, cool. That makes as much sense as the incoherent ramble of setup speculation running through my mind.

Byers, though? I don't know, he's been playing too aggro. I'd definitely be up to vote, but I want to see what else shakes out.

One thing I'm curious about : Byers, why the thunderdome? It should have been obvious that thunderdoming Ecco would not have saved you, which should have been your top priority as town doctor.

Thunderdomes are cool and fun, even if they're a bad idea almost all of the time. That said, a Doctor thunderdoming is an even worse idea than normal.

We're probably looking at vampires vs. those guys who hunt vampires as the scum teams. Alternatively werewolves.

That votefinder post was the vote count for the end of the day. We're now down to 14 players left alive, due to the vote out and the night kill.

The amount of scum isn't a known factor, as this isn't an open setup.

I find it hard to believe Sandwolf is Ecco's scumbro because that would be the worst disguised scumteam I've ever seen.

Too scummy to be scum is rarely a good argument.

Meinberg
Oct 9, 2011


A thought occurs to me: Ecco's knowledge of the hammer-boon relationship implies that scum also get a boon for hammering, though it's possible that who they need to hammer is different. Basically, we need to be careful who we give the hammer to.

But yeah, looking over Sandwolf again and his behavior yesterday, I definitely lean in favor of him being scum. I'd like to give him a chance to post before I vote, and see what sort of argument he presents to explain himself, and it's the weekend, so that might not be until Monday.

Only three players so far this game have mentioned werewolves. One was Asiina who is now dead and flipped town. One is Glock, who mentioned them only after Ecco's lore post thing. The third is myself, who hammered town yesterday. I probably look pretty terrible right now.

Meinberg how do you feel about this assault upon your character?

Like, I can see how a person might come to those thoughts in regards to me, but ShadowGlass isn't right.

Admittedly, I've been playing pretty lovely this game, I won't deny that. But does that make me scum? Nah. But does that make me someone who scum would easily be able to case? Oh heck yes.

I've had a lot of extra work on my plate, and it has kept me from putting in the engagement that this game deserves. I'll do a re-read sometime before deadline, and post my thoughts.

Meinberg
Oct 9, 2011


So, when the flip came up for the kills last night, I realized that my behavior was fairly suspect. While the Sandwolf hammer is definitely worse (although his behavior with Ecco was enough to make him doubt him), the werewolf thing gave me an idea. I intentionally drew attention to how suspicious I was, to see who would be willing to vote me, seeking out an easy vote rather than one that was particularly well sourced.

And who is the first person to vote for me? Shadowglass.

However, my target didn't claim hider after I said it in thread which is what I'd expect so either they're playing bad or something else happened to block the action. I'll reveal who I targeted N2 if people think it's for the best but right now I think they'd only be confirmed town if they came forward to claim hider before I said who it was.

I've been playing really lovely this game, I'll agree.

Starting to get a "fake content" feel from the sidelines commenting, and I need to put my vote somewhere more productive before I sleep.

This is the first post, from a surviving player, that has really jumped out at me as "this feels scummy."
