Good morning, guys. I unfortunately had some real work to do for once! However, I have been thinking about who would actually be a decent choice for a D1 turbolynch.

We have a few unknown factors here from new posters, but it would be nice to see some actual input from them first, I think. So I'd be most in favor of lynching anyone who's just too quiet. Or on the other hand, possibly these two:

Anidav - I agree it would be a fitting full-circle tribute, to lynch him not for his annoying roleclaims confusing everyone, but to celebrate how dangerous and successful those claims have now become.

Mills - Purely for tradition's sake

We haven't always turbo'd mills have we?

I remember turboing his friends one gsme and I think Hal Incadenza or however it's spelt flipped scum. That was funny. I was half suspect of Kommando last game because he replaced Hal on D1.

The fact that you put analysis into this lovely day one post implies that you are putting in a small effort to out-town the town.

Auspol town always gets into a shitflinging frenzy on day one where a large majority of the posts are jabs, jokes or meaningless. You however have come to stand out and try being a helpful town on day 1.

You are either reading too much into this or are scummy for the fact that you're trying to fish hard out of day one posts.

Framing the argument is a key part of a mafia team, do it too early and too often and you will get lynched.

Yes.

But Kat is also hyper analytical, developing auspols first mafia spreadsheet in like auspol game #4 ever that a lot of players have since imitated but kept secret.

Oh, how I have been there.

I do think it's worth trying to poke people and go fishing for little tells like that though, even on D1. If only because there's not much else you can do, besides the usual joking around. Even if the original tell is pretty bogus, the reaction that follows may be more revealing instead.

Using it to "frame the argument" and pushing it way too seriously for D1 might be going overboard and be a scumtell though, I agree. However, this reply sounds like a very toned-down OMGUS to me.

Auspol has really loose definitions of an omgus I've noticed.

As much as Anidav might be a great candidate for the D1 lynch we're looking at a pretty bland setup for D2 if no one's going to talk about some other options. There should be some more fights going on by now! Is this what happens when I stop flinging around like 5 votes a day? Peace and harmony?!

yeah, i'll clarify i'm always a d1 lynch advocate, but a comedy lynch doesn't achieve as much as everyone thinks it does.

Hmmm, ok.

I think the rush on Anidav is pretty manufactured, plus if we keep him overnight we can give him the chance to prove his quasi role claim.

Still a few hours to get a vote in. Do we have other options?

"Hi I'm Coq, I post wishy washy poo poo like this to try and cover my arse if the lynchee flips town. I do this because I'm concerned people will think I'm too late jumping in on a lynch if i jump on now. I don't realise that in doing so, this does the opposite of what i wanted and draws attention to me. You can tell this post is white noise, because I don't offer anything of worth up and instead ask everyone else to make suggestions, giving the illusion i'm helping."

You'll need to spell it out, mafia expert.

If I had to choose, I'd vote for Beet, Kat or Milky. Beet because contrary to every other d1 he's not flinging poo poo everywhere like a monkey on crystal meth. He's content to turbo anidav which differs from the last few games. Kat or Milky for lazy dogpiles on the anidav train in the sweet spot of 4 or 5 votes in.

With that,

Last-minute "mea culpa"? Interesting ploy.

We have Tirade and Coq voting for Beet in very quick succession after Beet expressed suspicion at Coq's posting. Interesting


That's why I said "compared to last game"--not meaning to pin you as being a quiet poster in general, just noting that there was a difference in it.

Anyway, how long have we got to get a lynch? Votefinder's saying 2 hours. With that in mind (assuming people just don't come in and pile on Anidav super quick before more discussion can be had) ##vote Anidav

nah that's fine.

i was more aggressive last game, though 90% of it was directed at gaspy.

Look ok I'll admit the flipping has been somewhat bad play but my whole incentive has been to open up conversation about other options. Which has happened.

I am worth far more to the town alive than dead, and if allowed to live will be a useful bot to have around. Please don't let my death be the first mistake.
