My question to Asiina is open to everyone, BTW. Who would you daycop and why?

I'd daycop Hal cause i can never read him, he always sounds so chill and relaxed but posting just enough content to not be considered a genuine lurker.

I'd like to keep this up too, only reason the KB crusade didn't work too well in my last game is cause Quid and Hiip and a whole bunch of other people who just refused to post were all town. (also Anidav... who did post)

Would daycop redneck, mainly cause that vote on Sandwolf looks awful suspicious. Combined with the fact he also hasn't been posting much, it makes him look like scum - but I didn't post all that much in my last game, and I was town, so it's a null point by itself imo. Still reinforces the fact that the only post he's made is a vote for someone without a reason. That's pretty scummy to me.

Yeah that seems to be reading a bit much into it, where's all this emotional content you're talking about, Somber?

Flamander posted:

Anyways, my argument contradicts itself, right? Mind pointing out how so? Because you missed out a bit. 'By itself.' I was saying that the vote wasn't necessarily enough evidence. He could have posted soon after, giving a reason. Or even post at all. But the fact that he hasn't posted in this thread that much apart from a joke conversation about popping shortly after the game's start, that vote that basically says 'holy poo poo sandwolf is in this???' and his signup leads me to believe that redneck's probably scum.

The funny thing is, I thought that for a sec too, that nazgul was throwing stones in glass houses there. But while his vote on Sandwolf might be a bit hypocritical, it was hardly without reason. The reason was: Sandwolf is mad lurking.

I don't like the people pressing Flamander that hard, it's a pretty innocent statement. "Yeah, I get it, he's lurking, that's scummy. But recently, I was town and lurked, so, bluh." Which is saying nothing, but it's absolutely a thought process I feel like I see occur every game.

It's really frustrating to not know what Flam really was. If he was scum then it'd be obvious to look at Mithross next for wanting to move the vote off him. But I think Mithross sounds more town, and calling out his intent that explicitly near deadline feels a bit too bold for scum. Especially before we knew the game wasn't gonna have flips.

I still like the case on Jam and might vote him next if nothing else happens soon.

I don't think anyone's going too hard on Jam though, it's not like slapfight levels yet, he just looked like one of the best leads on D1 and that could change once he's around and posting more stuff

Bif made a post about watching the NK target, and then voted you to open D2 - it's entirely possible (probable even) that she was just goofing around but I figured it's as good of an opening vote as any.

oh, no that was not a watcher breadcrumb. If I was gonna watch somebody I would never call my shots like that

Sandwolf posted:

Yeah sorry this flipless stuff has a learning curve. I keep rereading and feel all stilted ignoring all connections to and from Podima/Flam.

I really don't like the way the vote switched so rapidly from MMT to Flam yesterday. I understand why it happened, MMT posted a bit and there was some pre-existing suspicion on him from earlier but.. something about the way the conversation goes makes me so uneasy. But I don't even know if it's worth loving following cuz Flam may have even been scum and it could have been a totally organic D1 scramble and then I'll end up with tunnel vision on some town.

I'm finding myself a little frustrated is all.

didn't the Flam vote ramp up while Nazgul was still around? I voted him and Max joined in immediately. We were the only 2 votes for a while but Asiina said around the same time that she would also vote Flam. Pod showed up and said he was suss on both of them.

After that though, one weird thing is Hal tried to dismiss the Nazgul votes as a "policy lynch" mentioning how Nazgul often gets voted off D1, but I never got the impression that anyone was voting Nazgul for anything but just lurking. (maybe also for throwing out a hypocritical lurker vote while still lurking) Despite his meltdown later, it really wasn't anything personal about him that I could see.

but then when Nazgul shows up again a bit later, he's suddenly "choosing to interpret this as "The Mafia community no longer wants me to play". " Now that I'm re-reading it that seems really strange. Especially when Flam was getting just as much heat. I'd assumed that kind of pouting was frustrated town, especially with MT showing up and participating well, but Hal making that similar personal comment beforehand is making me paranoid.

Can you explain this? I don't get it.

I don't like the way Hal defended Nazgul. It's conflating a critique of lurker lunches in general with not wanting to vote Nazgul in particular. So that's got me wondering if they could've been scumbuddies after all.

Here's the Nazgul meltdown again:

redneck nazgul posted:

I'm so loving thrilled that jokephase ends immediately after I post.

I request a replacement.

redneck nazgul posted:

I'm choosing to interpret this as "The Mafia community no longer wants me to play". Might as well give the slot to someone else, since protesting does absolutely gently caress-all in the face of "well, we need to lynch someone and it's either you or a lurker because it's Day 1 and we can't figure out anything without night actions".

Thanks for the memories.

I just don't get where he's getting all this personal offense from, especially when Flam had just as much heat on him instead by then so it wasn't like Nazgul was the only "default choice" we were talking about. I was reading the meltdown as townie before, but looking back at Hal setting up that "everyone's just picking on Nazgul" narrative makes me wonder if it's not.

weird, that's the bit you think to pick out from MT's posts? I was curious about whether Pod was serious or not too, especially since I'm not actually Audrey.

I mean, I'd figure a game shouldn't ever be flavor-solvable like that, but if Aubrey is like Sara's Komaeda or something, he could've had a point.
