Anomalous Amalgam posted:

No I'm saying, YPM's argument relies on me believing I thought she would make the kill. he's arguing, why target asiina if you think she's scum. Why target anyone else than a person I thought was scum? I mean what if I could redirect the nk to kill themselves even. Normally, I see nexus with a limitation, but my limitation is that it is 1-shot, and it redirects any actions targeting me to a target of my choosing.

Outside of that, I have no knowledge on if it can prevent or redirect a kill.

You'd have to assume there was some sort of protection role, though, which kind of invalidates that.

Anomalous Amalgam posted:

How would I have to assume that there was some sort of protection role?

Because at that point pretty much everyone was alive, so it follows logically.

Not to mention if your nexus were actually one shot, you'd assume other people also have X shot abilities, and using your nexus would likely invalidate and waste them all.

There's just no good, town reason to use a nexus ability N1

That's not a redflag you turdlord, like I've already said. I assume I can redirect an NK, but have no knowledge if I actually do or not. This assumption is derived from the fact that I didn't receive any limitations in my PM.

So why didn't you ask? Why would you just blindly use such a big power like that and not think to go "hey cpig, does this work on kills?"

There was a lightning rod last night but AA was definitely not it. Everyone except AA visited the LR last night, which is kind of surprising that if there are one shots every single one of them used it last night

Also I don't know how cpig would do it, but if I do a redirect role I would usually do it the way AA is claiming and not have be seen by trackers/watchers. Kind of invalidates the purpose of the role.

I would, however, use it as a scum/sk role, and usually do

I don't like this vote because whenever there's pretty good cases already existing on someone but someone comes in and votes because of some other reason it just reads as wanting to look like they're contributing something new while still just going along with the flow. It feels fake.

Not enough for me to vote Opop over others, but still a bad post.

I'm enjoying our national holiday so I'm not going to read the whole 5 pages here, but just blue sky thinking what if the lightning rod isn't someone's direct role. What if A can make B a lightning rod, or something like that? I feel like that makes more sense with YPM's result

I lied hoping someome to target me. Redirected to try to see lurker alignment ir copped or in the event of a kill possible scum or just other unknown.

And nothing happened with my intended target as far as I know.

Also I can't help what anyone believes.

I think there's a real chance Jake or Kashuno are scum, but I also can't tell if they are prick idiots so...

I'm ok getting lynched. It'll prove my own innocence and motives behind using my abilities

Why would someone target you if you were a one shot who'd used up your power?

Because I would have used up my power and maybe someone would try to determine my alignment or role if there's a cop. Which like I said, deflected to a lurker.

So you were purposefully trying to obfuscate town power roles? Neat

I'm the backglass, alternate night hider. I wasn't hiding last night but I definitely don't have an action that targets people.

With your N1 results I figured it was some kind of fuckery and didn't see any point in claiming yet, but I defintiely didn't do anything last night, so either there's another witch type role or a disguiser or something.

Your Personal Muse posted:

Anything the scum could have done to frame you would have had to be a huge coincidence to get the result I did because of all the redirectors. They would have just had to roll the dice and hope.

Every night action in this came is a big crap shoot.

I am aware. My point is that it doesn't make much sense to frame you in particular when they don't even know how they are going to be able to frame you.

Plus I don't think scum have framing elements that aren't redirecting

They straight up had a witch so it's not outside the realm of possibility. All I know is I didn't go anywhere last night.

You didn't think it was noteworthy that you were seen targeting someone even though you did nothing?

No. Not when his result was "Everyone except this one guy"
