Pmom's flavor is that he is a fart warrior that does battle by stunning his foes with particularly stinky farts.

I am pretty sure I hear him say this yesterday waiting in the check out line at the grocery store, so we should be safe to go with this.

Why would Goo want me to win? What are you talking about Goo?

Also, it was never my intention to win the game, it was my goal to finish with a key in hand and get an "item" as a result.

I did what I had intended to do. If you were invested in my victory, you might have wanted to say something.


Hey... Didn't goo become hated? Perhaps they have a way to wager on these contests. Could that be it?

Is Goo the Pete Rose of Mafia?

On the surface, Keane would have us think that he isn't invested in the outcome. That, of course, begs the question: why enter a tournament that he doesn't care about?

Looking carefully at his posts, I feel like he is making this up to cover up something deeper:


I think these quotes prove that Keane is emotionally invested, and suspect that he is trying to go unnoticed so that he can sneak his way towards the finish.

This stuff you pointed out, it seems more like dramatic flavor play than anything. Perhaps they are playing Nicholas Cage from Leaving Los Vegas, or an emo kid.

So in that regard I think your argument is off at this point. (Unless it's a ploy to use nihilism as a way to hide lovely actions) which will take some time to show.

But I don't think looking at this as a case is bad. I think initiating the serious scum hunt is good for business.

I am not above posting things to seek out reactions fro. Which to make judgement, but typically I ask for people to try and clarify and summarize information.

This feels more like a "trick" which puts you in a position to label people scummy for not having seen through your trick, it leaves things too open to your interpretation.

I don't know if I find it scummy, but i don't like it.

My main problem with the challenge is that it took way longer than expected, I thought it wouldn't be more than half an hour. I really got upset when I logged in this morning and people were calling me a baby for falling asleep. Its really upsetting since I'm a grown man.

OmegaGoo posted:

So what was your reasoning here? I understand items are nice, and hell, they might help town in general, but why not try to actually win?

I had a few reasons.
First- getting the crown means you can't be executed today, or lynched. That is great and all but the odds of that happening are like 1 in 17.

So I can work really, really hard and fight to win something that I have a 1 in 17 chance of needing, that works for one day, or i can work a little less hard and win a mystery item. The big prize didn't seem worth it.

I think I made the right choice as my does not expire, and ultimately will have more use to the town than being unlynchable for day one.

Trying to keep 16 different people's posts straight has been rather difficult.

Opop is seeming scummy to me for the same reason as in WIFOA... which means he could be town. I know for a fact my scumdar needs work, so as of right now that's a null-leaning-town there.

MMT is doing that thing that promotes discussion. Regardless of alignment, that's a pro-town thing. Null-leaning-town there.

I want my question to Roy answered. Nothing yet there.

KingB is town.

Considering my track record on betting, this might not be saying much, but I'll bet that one of Pmom or Keane is scum. Nothing solid there yet, so no vote from me yet.

TMM, aside from the glory, why did you want to win the challenge?

This Omega-Roy exchange stands out to me so far. Roy doesn't so much ask whether Omega being hated is the result of a bet as he seems to know in advance what Omega's flavour is.

One of the things I do, is I think things over while posting. After mulling over what had been said over night, I put the pieces together.

They turned up hated.
They were bummed I lost.
The only reason that me losing would be a bad thing, is it led to their hated status.

Thus, goo had an opportunity to basically bet on the game (ala Pete Rose who only gets talked about in Cincinnati)... As it happens, they essentially said this in a post that I missed in my morning review of events.

Then I made a gambler reference because it seemed obvious...

Yeah maybe.
I was thinking in the circumstances I would have asked OmegaGoo before reaching that conclusion, but as I said in the challenge doc I am a stupido.

My position is that if a thought comes to me, I am just going to throw it out there. If I throw questions out like that, it is usually a conclusion I have drawn that I am throwing out there to see what people think.

I try not to be too picky and edit myself because you never know when an idea might make for a useful clue or conclusion... And should I ever turn up dead I never feel bad about not having said something.

QuoProQuid posted:


I have a massive headache right now, but there's something that reads as tonally off about Roy's post here. I'm not entirely sure how to articulate it, but I get the ~~~vibe~~~ of someone that wants to post, but really has nothing to say. I find it odd that Roy doesn't provide any substantive content until Murmur provides him with an easy target (1).

Does anyone else get this vibe?


in regards to this..what exactly, of substance, took place in this game before the first challenge? Murmur was really the point where actual things started to happen. Should I have attempted to make a serious inquest into the scumminess of somebody based on their ability to pun?

OmegaGoo posted:



Also, my bet on Roy is the main bit in our interaction here, I could ask the same questions of Narc and QPQ. Did it look like they were actively trying to win?

not sure if that was answered yet, but it seemed like for the most part, they were. Three people with keys were heading to the finish line. I was nowhere near it.

Roydrowsy
May 6, 2007



QuoProQuid posted:

Feeling much better! Let's begin again.


Upon revisiting this post, I think I can better explain why it set me off. The first three lines strike me as defensive. There's no reason for Roy to distance himself from Goo, nor any reason to explain his motives in last night's challenge. While claiming "it was never my intention to win the game" appears to be pro-town, it doesn't make sense on second thought. What sort of player would not play to win? Protection from the lynch is protection from the lynch. Saying that you had no intent to win is defending behavior that needs no defending.


And then there's this post, which is just repeating objections that were previously raised in a slightly different packaging before doubling back. It's meaningless and meandering. I don't know what Roy's position actually is, and her following posts leave me even further confused as to what her position actually is.

damnit i typed a response and it deleted itself.
First part....

Saying I had no intent to win is just me being honest about what happened. I have explained this. The contest was a 1 in 8 shot to win a prize i had a 1 in 17 chance of needing.
I could play those odds, or go for the 1 in 4 shot of winning a 'mystery prize' I looked at the odds, and chose the better odds.

Second part..
I have tried to make my posts meaningful, but I have been trying to make sure that my count went up so I didn't get replaced, as I saw that my posting was a bit short at the start of the day.

But, here is another thing that I have already explained in this game.

I don't know how other people put their posts together, but here is my process.
I read a bunch of stuff. I click the button to reply. Then I type as I think through it all. I attempt to type and publish all of my ideas. I will point out, as best I can, the things I do and do not like. Just because I don't like something does not mean I have made the decision that it is scummy. If you are unsure about my position, feel free to ask. Typically, I don't throw my votes around all that much. I'm not much for voting to put pressure on people.

my Goo vote is a joke so ##unvote

There are things I need to review before I try and post a new vote.. I am still going over everything from the day.

OmegaGoo posted:

I voted you for three reasons:

1) You weren't really posting anything that looked like content.

2) You voted me without interacting with me or even mentioning me at any point except


Which had nothing to do with anything I had been talking about, since I was talking about my ROLE INTERACTIONS, which, of course, have earned me the Hated status. You think I'd be willing to risk that status if I was scum?

3) You blatantly shut down my questioning about your vote. I had no interest in voting you until you decided that you weren't going to interact with me further until I did.

Points one and two make enough sense, but three... They explained why they voted so it doesn't work.

I will say, I get the feeling at times that goo posts in a way that is similar to me, I think they are more likely to just spout off ideas more than strategically plan their posts out, so some of the things you point at as questionable, I don't know if i agree with.

I realize this suggests that I am in kahoots with goo, but I'm not. If we had secret dealings, they would have known my intentions in the challenge before I went into it, I would have suggested they bet on somebody other than me, and ended up hated as a result.


Just a heads up, I will be gone for most of the day, I am helping interview people for jobs at my school, but I will be around well in time for deadline.

As stated earlier, Murmer's move doesn't sit very well with me. The move feels really contrived, and designed to serve as a trap to conveniently trap somebody for a silly reason. That being said, with everything else that is going on, I don't see the point in trying to pursue a Murmer lynch at this point.

I agree that Bird seems pretty town.

I like Garth and Madman, I get town vibes from them so far.

I've played with Goo before, and Goo's play seems currently consistent with how they have played town so far.

there is a lot about CPig's posting that doesn't feel right to me.
they have cast 4 votes in the game so far, and none of them comes with an real justification or reasoning, it is often in agreement or confirmation of things other people say. It's not like they're really playing the game, but they're still around and doing stuff.

My time zone stuff might be messed up, did this vote come in right at deadline or an hour before?

If it was right on deadline, than it makes sense. If it was an hour early, it makes a little less sense. Plus inventor role doesn't seem like a scum ability.
