Why didn't you just ask that in the first place?

Rarity jumping out and volunteering honestly didn't bother me when I saw it happen. I was caught up in the moment as the post came out and almost volunteered myself. PM jumping in and helping Rarity was strange, as was backing off, but then I saw all your posts of . . . whatever and just didn't care about PM and Rarity any more.

Cool, hopefully we can all move on from this.

My reasons were stated. I don't have a problem with you saying my posts were possibly scummy or gimmicky because it is a game, BUT since you chose to call it out, I cast my vote for you. There is no grand mystery or scheme to it. I harbor no ill will against you because this is an internet game.

Well greetings and salutations to all of you fine folks! The name is Androcles Brocklehurst, pleased to make your acquaintance. Now y'all might be thinking to yourself, "what in the Sam Hill is this delicate flower of a man doing with a name like that?" Well for that, y'all are gonna have to thank my father, God rest his soul. He gave me this name hoping I would grow up like him, a rugged military man. However it just was not meant to be, because while I have every appreciation in the world for a band of men in peak physical condition out roughing it for days and weeks on end, I cannot say that the idea of doing so appeals to me, personally. So instead I went up to Virginia to attend university, and took on the lawyer's mantle instead. Now I'm sure y'all could use my services, seeing as there appears to be some sort of inheritance dispute, and I am happy to offer my services, for a nominal fee, of course. Ah man's got to eat somehow, does he not?

Now onto the business of figuring out how we're going to distribute the estate of our dearly departed Wilbur. I believe that Prescott has something here when in comes to Pancho. I don't like the way he reacts under pressure one iota:

Do you actually have no problem with GG just laying down a vote because I have no idea why actually.

Look at the exasperation that he is being pushed. I can understand frustration at being accused, believe me as a lawyer it's something I see nearly every day of my life, but then he tries to pivot, to cast aspersions upon Mr. Everest while still not committing to anything material, as though he doesn't want to be wrong, or to be caught in a lie

Max posted:

Now we see here, he expresses frustration that he was not asked the right question. He is so attached to the idea of not being wrong that he refuses to say anything, even though it is totally reasonable to be wrong this early in the affair. He then answers the more specific question asked of him. Well, attempts to look like he is answering it. However, the entirety of his response refuses to say anything concrete, and comes off quite evasive. Again, he seems to have an unreasonable fear of being incorrect, but why? Why would someone be afraid of being wrong when we all have virtually no information?

Max posted:

Now this is just the cherry on top. As Prescott mentioned, there must be some motivation for Mr. Pancho's blowing up like this. I, for one, do not see where he is being personally attacked, at least any more than anyone else. What I see is casing, and people making arguments based on evidence, not malice. Perhaps I'm simply inured to how interrogations usually go, having suffered and performed my fair share of cross examinations, but Pancho appears to me to be making an appeal to our emotions here more than anything else.

Hey all, I walked away for a while because I was called a literal goldfish, which at the time was the cherry on top of being annoyed at the way the game was going and also kinda personal.

I don't know what the vote count is at the moment, but it seems kinda close to 8 so I might as well claim:

I have a few one-shot night actions. Protect, Block, and investigate. I can only use each action once throughout the game.

Re-reading his post history, he just sort of participates in the joke phase, then says nothing until showing up to say I seem disengaged with the game, which is a funny statement to make just after myself and capps made quite a few posts.

To me it seems like a joat could potentially be the easiest of fakeclaims to make as scum where you have a team to back your claim with results potentially.
