It's D1 so I can understand jokey votes and throwing votes around willy nilly, but what I can't understand is why would you throw treats around so casually.
I think they're going to be a big part of the game and to treat them frivolously would be a mistake, especially if it started momentum on it with "Eh gently caress it" style treating.

So a question to the people that have given FL a treat..
Why?

this is a good point but i think people are just being real casual with their treats.

We don't even know what treats do. However i will say that i am 99.99 percent sure that if you treat me i'll be able to use more than one of my powers tonight cuz uh that seems like a thing a cool game host would do.

Anyways i will follow up and say that my joats are watcher, follower, tracker, voyeur.

if asiina is basing this game based on cloaks design then this is a town role. not gonna dip too far down the meta hole though.

this is a stickup posted:

also note that I have not voted because I'm not trying to rush D1

You are dumb, and also wrong about your idiot read.

Better?

in my experience when pig plays into his own meta like this he's scum. he's actually a really smart and intuitive player with a great sense of the social game.

I'll be out from pretty much now. So I won't be able to respond to any scum accusations that I was the one that killed KB.

You either believe me or you don't.
If you're playing with me in other games atm, you know I'm a straight shooter and I've been on absolute fire with my callouts lately.

I swear on me sexy sexy beard that AA+Cpig are scum.

If you want to lynch scum, lynch AA.
If you want to lynch me, a sexy as hell town bodyguard, that's your choice. I just won't be about to argue against it cause I'm getting drunk as a skunk this arvo

while infi is certainly unpleasant, i don't know if that means he is scum. from what i understand it's possible for both actors to be town here. we need to stop and talk this out, not rush to a vote.

we absolutely cannot make assumptions about the setup here. there are a mess of roles that have not and should not claim. there are many possibilities outside the standard, that's the point of this game. if you haven't read the cloaks post asiina linked in the op, it might be helpful.

i need to look back at jim hats. do i recall correctly that he had a watch and a track available and chose to track kb?

##vote cpig

so

your name is james hats

you have a watch and track available

you choose to target the player who got a treat, great!

imagine that you, james hats, are town. do you choose the ability that could observe a kill on a high priority target? or, do you choose to see who they visit? the best case scenario there is a verified target.

suboptimal play is a tough case to make, but i have a lot of difficulty making sense of that from a town perspective.

or the scum have a strongman kill and inf got docced. or there's something else at play we're not aware of.

based on a purely mechanical pov i'm nervous about making assumptions with partial information. again, gonna reference cloaks and the design intent of this game.

yes it is weird, but Jhats is a lot like me as in he seems to just do whatever without thinking much about it.

I don't really buy that explanation. A watch is way more exciting than a track as town. KB was obviously a high priority target and tracking him would give jim marginal information at best.

or wait, maybe i'm misremembering. James, you said you saw him Cop, right? so you saw the action but not the target.

man that makes even less sense.

here is you assuming the way you feel about something is the same way another person would.

it's not the simple though. there's not an easy way for me to rationalize a bad play like that. maybe assuming any kind of rationale is a mistake on my part, but i have to work from the perspective that each player is trying to advance their win condition.

let's look at it another way.

you're scum. james hats isn't on your scum team.you know that james hats can watch at night. would you try to kill kb with a claimed watcher on the board?
