Yeah. I'm so turned around this game. Helpful Bif is scum Bif.

##vote Bif

Helpful Bif is just Bif. I'm still catching up on thread but voting for someone who is generally very good town this early is not a move I can stand by. Not to the same extent as Venom, but Bif is more useful as town than they are dangerous as scum. Low priority.

Back to catching up on 30 pages or so.

"Let me get this straight..."


Okay, it's really tricky trying to catch up on this constantly moving thread while I'm spending the day moving furniture I've made some handwritten notes as I go. Dunno how useful it'll be but lets give this a shot.

Venom Soag: Up until about page 36, was convinced they were either scum or badly off their game. Turning poo poo around njow, but something about the way they're playing is bugging me. Aspects of it, and his choice of words reminds me too much of a time he was scum and managed to cleans sweep the town, just about.

Kash: Got kind of a scum read on them, but honestly, their play style and their explanations remind me a little of my own, so it might stand to reason that if I think they're scum then they're probably town.

Birdstrike: Anyone who thought strike was suspicious is weird and on a preliminary list.

Exakt: Posting WAY more than I'm used to them doing so. Could be a new leaf, could be overcompensating because they've been caught being too lurky too often in the past. Its meta reasoning, but sometimes you can't help that. Just an observation.

Kat: Kat

Bif: Keeps drawing needless suspicion on themselves, but in a way that seems natural and subtle enough so that I think its them being confident in their innocence rather than a scum double bluff.

Ikt: Probably baseless, considering a lot of my technique is too read whole pages and see what leaps out, but the way the post is disquieting. Possibly selective recognition but it seems like their posts including urging and suggestion but little action. Again, could be my bad.

Venoms current game rings very very reminiscent of his recent scum games. While I admit it seems unlike him to be so careless as to keep playing the same way, I consider it more likely than him being this consistently off mark. I think i had it right the first time.

Not my top pick, but back on the list.

Between me and MMG and the fact that usually I can agree with most of your picks and this time I think we have one in common has me thinking you're trying to get me hanged quick.

Heck the one person you suspect that I actually agree with is probably just the person your starting your bussing campaign with.

i was suss of who you replaced and me saying you look scummy is not md pushing for a quick hang


Given what you know of me, and your apparent willful ignorance of it along with the decidedly cut throat way you play scum, it came across that way. Perhaps I'm just jumpy after the archer mafia game. The one you played almost exactly like you're playing now. Perhaps not. You changed how we do things. I have to keep my guard up.

All things considered, I still consider Exakt more likely to be scum, followed by Ikt then possibley Kat.

The fact that you also suspected strike (I think - there was a lot of reading to do very fast) doesn't help though. I've seen scum Strike. That ain't it.

Just as a heads up,

I'm going to a concert tonight ant then have work at both jobs tomorrow 6am-3pm for one, 7pm-12 midnight the other. Still gonna be able to post, but it's going to necessitate more speed reading then big blocks of posting. Sucks a bit, but it's netted me good results in the past.

Gonna tentatively put in a vote now just in case I don't get a chance later and the action picks up.

Do you think his call on Taste is a good one though?

Not particularly, but it sounds better than a lynch on Kash, tbh. The old gwynstinct can't seem to shake exakt. Might just be playing the law of averages though. I just like think he's more likely town. Might have just entered the game too eager.

I always feel like its a good policy to vote before going to bed or work, if you can. Not doing so, in a game that rapidly speeds up and slows down like this one seems a little irresponsible as town.

I admit, it is partially my ongoing conviction in my own instincts and observations that has me angling for a lynch. The basic result is the same with a modkill, appreciably.

I've been a fairly single minded this game, save for brief concerns about Venom. It looks like my original target is no longer going to be a concern, and the thread has slowed down, so I'll try re-reading from the start and see if I can find a better option.

I AM REASONABLY SURE that I read gwyn properly and it was a bus

Exakt was basically the first person I accused of anything and the first person I voted for, because earlier in the game they were posting what I thought to be too much for them. Like they were overcompensating after auspol noticed them lurking to victory once too often (which is at all).

So you're theorizing that upon joining the game, my first action - my absolute FIRST action - was to try bus someone with one scum already dead.

That is maniac thinking. You're reaching. You always have been.
