Something about this seems fishy, but I'm too stupid to put the pieces together. I think Mills is up to something.

Anidav's and Mill's earlier posting could all be an elaborate faux conflict. For all we know, they're on the same side, which might explain Mill's suddenly changing his vote as we approached hammertime. It could be a double bluff on both of their parts.

If we string up Anidav and they are scum, I'm still convinced Mills should probably be next. If we do that, that will be two scum in two days. Minus whoever gets night killed. Which I am suspecting at this stage, will be me.

If Anidav is innocent we can definitely string up Coq the next day. A guaranteed scum lynch in two days of play seems like a good deal.

Either vote will be productive in my opinion. Probably going to flip a coin, personally.

Splode is just fishing at this point. Please calm down.

Also Mills usually starts off by voting for someone first thing when the game opens because it's the strongest method of getting a reaction immediately. It's a good town move, a surprise attack; even.

You two are certainly looking out for eachother.

Not really. So it'll look really bad if I'm right, but I think it's safe to say I'm not. It's day one and this beats a coin toss.

Part of the problem is that even when I suspect something, I can't find the words to explain it. Something neglected to mention is that my suspicion of MIlls was based on the idea that his actions were some sort of elaborate triple bluff.

Also rule #1 of mafia, beyond any tips about how to be a good townie etc, is don't take mafia seriously or personally. Which, incidentally, anidav clearly hasn't learned yet.

I should mention well in advance: I'm working a night job, but its going to be a short shift with either no break or assuming there is one, I'm probably going to have to work through it. If we have any revelations in the last hour or so before hammertime, I probably wont be able to act upon them and will have to vote early.

Given how incredibly quiet they are and how they're not voting, do we have anything to lose in lynching bbq?

Rightly or wrongly, I'm not suspicious of Bif at all.

Considering the last Auspolformers game that is a very dangerous position. I don't necessarily think Bif is scum either but I'm still suspicious.

Yeah, it was much easier to get a feel of things when I wasn't caught up in it myself. Once you're actually in the cave, your compass starts spinning, I guess.

Coq says his information, if revealed will only benefit scum. I realise I am both a new player and not a great thinker but I can't think of what that information could be, nor how much of a difference it could make given that we have no real edge or leads on the scum anyways.

The revealing of information, and how people react to it will move things forward, might even turn something up.

If it might stop him getting lynched, it'd be worth a shot, right?

If we eliminate coq from the lynch list, who would our next best option be?

Some people are still too quiet. If they're note voting and not actually helping us with theories, we really may as well take a chance on them.

I still haven't figured out the strategy yet

Every previous game I've played I've been in a faction with a group document to talk in, now I'm all alone

Well, I'm the only person whose vocalised any real suspicion. So it's not like you're going to be lynched. Even with that in mind, if I get nightkilled that will hardly implicate you either as no one would think someone would be foolish enough to nightkill their only detractor.

Which as actually quite comforting, as that puts absolutely no value in me being killed. Between my wild theories and inexperience I'm probably more good to them alive. Honestly, I'm worried for bif and fs.

I hope coq survives another night honestly. See where that goes.

I have a sinking feeling I have out done myself in terms of stupid posts.

I'm too dumb to know what to actually look for. But barbecue is too quiet. Now I realise they're known for this but they keep on springing up only when directly challenged and offering little in the way of insight or scumhunting.

I'm not offering much either, but bbq's meant to be an experienced player.

For all I know they're a roleblocker and just quiet and stoic and good at their job.

I'm just not sure what else to go with.

Given how often people have said I'm either doing a brilliant imitation of being a hopeless newb and am actually scum OR that I'm actually the worst player ever, I actually kinda wish I was scum at this point.

Fact is, I am just that bad.

Now, I realise that is probably a hugely scummy thing to say. I wouldn't know.

If they're scum I don't think they're trying to throw eachother under a bus. I think they're hoping to lead us to a confused town that votes for no one. No lynching. More night kills.

It seems like an obvious thing to mention, but for people who have been useful and had good theories about multiple people. It seems weird that they haven't been killed. If they're not scum, then we may need to consider anyone they haven't suspected.

It's not weird that they haven't been killed. If they're suspected people who are scum, and get killed, then it becomes another argument against those suspects..
