EAT THE DONUTS


In any case, I think it's safe to conclude that Monathin is town based on the AA roleblock. Sure there's some convoluted theory involving setting up AA and letting iS get credit, but the simplest explanation is that scum just didn't want a town player to receive healing, so they blocked AA.

Also, MMT, to ask for some homework in return, I'd ask that you do for me what you did for AA--step back and try and do a clean read. If you still think I'm scum after that, then sure, I can respect that, but I feel like you're tunneling right now and making some iffy arguments as a result.

He will be injured, but in the World Series he will be raised from the DL. And the Indians were filled with grief.

I admit that I'm mostly just posting off the cuff and will do a full re-read during the battle phase. I'm a huge Hats fan - trust me, I want you to be town!

For what it's worth, I think/plan to argue that the most productive course of action is to execute Moat tomorrow and then make judgments on whether he flips medic or not. If he flips town medic I'd almost certainly reassess my opinion of you. But right now the information that we have that supposedly makes Moat town (a loose interpretation regarding Tobbs getting healed and Hats' word that he got healed) isn't enough to change my mind there.

So your plan is to argue for the lynch of a proven healer?

Another question - did anyone get roleblocked today? My heal went through, and I'm wondering if Max or Quid might've been the roleblocker.

Preliminary Phase is over! Results will be in your character sheets shortly!

BATTLEFIELD: Palo Alto

The terrain here lends itself to the use of artillery, which leaves those who fight atop horseback at a dire disadvantage. On the other hand, the nearby town is the perfect place to gather emergency requisitions - or plunder, if you prefer.
Universal Effect: All Wranglers take 1 additional damage from each attack. Shopkeeps surviving the battle have a 50% chance to scrounge up 1 Shine after the battle.

The first time, the Villistas were just testing their opponents' strength. They had learned from their mistakes. They had purged traitors from their ranks. This time, they came in with fire in their eyes and death in their hands, ready to roll over the Texan resistance!

...but just like before, Ma Ferguson herself was there to stop 'em in their tracks! Rallying her flagging troops, she spurred them onward for a frantic counterattack! "Hit 'em where it hurts, boys! Don't bother with the manners your mamas taught you, because they ain't here to see you now - AND I AM! Get 'em!"

The forces clashed in yet another brutal brawl - but when they withdrew to lick their wounds, one side withdrew first...

THE DIVISIÓN DEL NORTE WINS THIS BATTLE!

Smashing through the Texan defenses in the wake of their retreat, the Mexican army withdraws knowing that the way is clear for them to advance further into Texan territory with their next assault!

The División del Norte may now attack The Alamo!

Each army returns to their camp, ready to regroup, recuperate, and prepare - for tomorrow is another day, and another battle awaits.

...But that's not all that was waiting for their return.

Battle Report:

I buffed my rank. I attacked Bif. I protected myself. I should have taken about 3 average attacks in damage, but I ended up only taking the same amount as I did last battle due to my self-protection. I'm in good shape, fit for battle, but would be more effective if topped off.

I can confirm another player's battle action, and presumably their alignment.

Glad we won another one.

I'm not shocked that either MMT or Mona, if town, were the nightkill target, just to paint the target on my back a little stronger. That said, if you think I would be dumb enough as scum to kill one of the two of them, I don't know what to tell you.

At any rate, I'll have my full claim ready to go today because I expect I'll need it.

I'll be quiet until all battle reports, etc are in though.

I've been skimming the other thread. Was their nightkill target also still injured from battle?

My ability went off just fine, as far as I can tell, although I don't know what the results look like on their side. I took a bit of a hit from somewhere (less than I would assume scum would deal), but assuming I don't do a dumb and botch my day action again, I'll be in peak condition.

We are going to be shooting for our planned cuddle at the halfway point again. May not actually happen then, but I want to allow for more time to switch gears if needed this time.

Still think ##vote Truth Quark is scum resting on a shaky bus of Quid to deflect pressure.

Also I asked everyone on the AA over Moat side to explain why you joined the train and I still want that.

Would be interested to hear why the people found Moat worse did so, too, but I dunno how useful that'll be considering

Gotcha, looks like both scum teams probably had the same idea then which may indicate the NK actually didn't get more powerful.

My initial off-the-cuff thought from yesterday's last hour change are that YPM's vote the other way back towards Moat obviously doesn't look as bad as I thought in the light of the flip (which I still feel bad about- my read on AA was as close as I really get to tunneling- my apologies, AA).

I'm going to re-read how that all went down and look for people hopping on board the train with little/no explanation and go from there.

Because of how my work day went the last part of the game day, I didn't really get to do a lot of research into Moat, but still didn't feel good about AA from my previous case, so that's why I went the direction I did.
