Based on my pm, colors are not unique and claiming cannot break the game like in that open set-up game. What I cannot figure out is whether it helps scum to know people's colors or not.

Some colors might. Mine, based on my pm, isn't. Therefore, I don't know that it's inherently useful to claim, especially since I don't know the mechanics of being scum.

except for SSV's reasoning, that color mixing is good, but how do we know who is telling the truth about their color?

I don't know if Inf is scum based on his assumptions. I think they're just bad assumptions.

My counter-assumptions to Inf:

1) there are more than colors in the game
2) I don't think colors are inherently town, nor non-colors inherently scum
3) one potential scum mechanic might be, in fact, to mix and create bad colors or ruin paint or whatever

Byers, I think, is also being a little obtuse because based on his post, it sounds like he got the same PM that I did (and what sounds like Inf did as well)

also while I don't know what mixing does in terms of game mechanics, it's certainly good for town because we can apparently paint a pretty pretty picture with mixed colors

I think all of these people should comment on this current conversation:

AR
Moat
Gulag
RF
Asiina
Peramene

esp Moat and RF because both made dodgy statements about claiming and have basically disappeared, but I will say that half of the thread is currently not talking and that's a big bummer

I see Inf as a catfish like in the metaphor about catfish from that TV show catfish based on the movie catfish based on the novel push by sapphire

He's a liar but the poo poo he provokes from other people is arguably more interesting and informing

I was going to say that everyone claiming colours would allow for scum to mess up mixing by fakeclaiming, but then I realised that it would be immediately obvious to people who mix with a fakeclaim who the liars are so I'm actually starting to come around on it.

But mixing with the wrong thing is irreparable. This is where the dilemma comes in regarding game mechanics: how do we weigh making the beautiful painting v. scum hunting? Like, how does one influence the other? How bad could we gently caress ourselves over re: the painting in pursuit of scum hunting?

SirSamVimes posted:

Being stuck with your base colour seems worth catching a scum. Paintings still need yellows and reds and blues.

That's fair. My other concern is that my PM suggests that there may be non-color roles, but I don't know that I can assume those are scum. In which case, a mass color claim may expose people with abilities beyond mixing.

I'm okay with a chores vote. Beyond that reasoning, I also thought it was a bullshit play because Inf is the only person to have claimed a color, so it didn't even make sense the way chores worded his play.

Asiina would be a straight up lurker lynch. Moat is here and being unhelpful and voting without reasonable explanation. He's scummy because of deliberate non-participation whereas Asiina is literally just not here.

I agree with most of Lumpen's assessments at the moment. I'm not thrilled about lynching Asiina based purely on lurking when Moat is here and hasn't said anything of value at all, but I'll take an Asiina lynch over chores who just seems bad at this and not necessarily scum.

also upon review of all teh horrible post sin this thread i think bird is scum (modest confidence) but id rather vote out asiina rthan a scum - town chores (im town)

Correct. I assumed SSV was a brush but now I just think he's a liar.

Why would you assume I was a brush? My literal first post when the game opened was "I'm not purple.... but I can become purple".

Assumed it was a joke. Then you confirmed you were blue and it made more sense to me as a brush claim.
