Another note, I can modify my googledoc templates to be more mobile friendly, but it makes setup time more difficult for me.

Do people really want mobile friendly googledoc submissions, or is that something I can eschew in favour of more convenience for myself?

I'm fine with mobile-unfriendly.

There's a lot of day left, but so far I'm most suss on anyone who hasn't been comfortable enough to dive in and get knee deep in jokephase. Even if you know nothing about the flavor, surely everyone can come together to recoil in horror at the rumor of dickworms.

So that means- *checks playerlist*

oh goddammit

I kind of think that there's both the "didn't play in Shine / doesn't get meta references" and "isn't familiar with the flavor" at play here.

I'm also in TWEWY Mafia, which of course is another 25-player game. I didn't really take math into account, I just want to avoid accidental turbo and people throwing around votes on the same person willy-nilly.

I felt like the original comment felt forced, and the explanation didn't really sway me otherwise.

Sounding kinda hedgey there, Bif. Not like Day 1 has any better cases.

He's not really putting a lot of thought into "who is scum?" - I feel like Monathin is using flavor knowledge to give the impression of content. The signal:noise ratio makes me suspicious. ##vote Monathin

I took a quick look. It was largely unhelpful.

I've responded to Bif more than I thought I had. I think i'm developing a cordial acquaintance with Prince of Space. I obviously didn't know either Shinji or Sakura before Bif made a stink about them. I seem to have some prior familiarity with MurmerTwin. I claim this is one of my first mafia games in my opening post, and state I'll play it because I enjoyed the possibility of wackiness.

.... I don't know. Theres not really a lot to go on yet. But I'm prepared to follow your gut on this one.

cause I was already looking at Chic as a lurker anyway, so seeing her show up to still post hardly anything except a pre-emptive "boy it would sure be dumb to vote for lukers on D1 though hey" really rubbed me the wrong way. Throwing a vote down and having her go "HOW DARE YOU gently caress YOU" sure didn't help any haha

I think this might be one of those cases where you stop and consider "if she were actually town and frustrated at being cased for not showing up on a weekend d1, is her reaction believable?" and I personally think it is.

I'm not saying she's town (still null there) but lately I've been trying to believe people when they seem angry enough to tell others off and I'd prefer to avoid the game going in a more personal-attacks direction. :ohdear:

I'm hoping that 50 is just trying some clever "best Mafia player ever" gambit and that he'll name the scumteam after a day of BLARGHing and not saying anything?

I definitely lean closer to scum than town for the time being. That said, for those casing him for low game content, I'd argue Monathin has less - at least 50 softclaimed flavor and voted somewhere.

maybe not scum, because berserker/ilya aren't really the big bads(if going by bifaux theory)

but they're potentially dangerous to town, maybe 3p(?)

also avenger isn't really "active" outside of one specific story so i don't even know if they are in fact in the game as a role

I think Juchero's suspicion on 50 was faked. He was trying to imply that Berserker is anti-town while ignoring the fact that the last thing a scum berserker would do is just claim it and RP it. When pressed on it he admits that probably isn't scummy but that it sounds like "an anti-town 3P".

I don't buy this as a town thought process. Hunting specifically for 3P is scum 101. ##vote Juchero

maybe if i ever suggested we vote for 50, this would be a good argument

but honestly i just think it's a bizarre bit of roleplay and maybe i'm letting flavor sway my intuition

this vote bugs me though

I was assuming that 50 was your strongest read since he's the person whose alignment you've primarily talked about? I will acknowledge that in the absence of that suspicion you have no scum calls and no votes outside of an early jokephase vote on Quid.

So walk me through this...

1 in 14 people in this game is the Killer. We have the option to attempt to eliminate him in Day 1.

If we fail and land on one of the other 13 people, then we go into Day 2 having lost two town members instead of one.

If we succeed and vote out the killer Day 1 ... the game ends? Right? Before anything could happen? ... Not much of a game ...

So, that's how I'm interpreting this. I don't see how not lynching one of our own day 1 gives the scum a "free kill". Or why lynching Day 1 would be the obvious strategy in this situation.

Every kill provides town with more information to analyze. Having two people to go back analyze (lynch and NK) is way way better for our D2 odds than only having one.

hello friend this is mafia not a mafia-like, there will be a team of players that are "scum" aka the bad guys, and we need to off all of them before we win

I feel pretty good about Quid, partly because it doesn't seem anyone has a town read on him, yet there's little interest in dropping votes on him.

Feels like scum holding back in the hopes that anything else pops up for them to latch onto.

I read over Quid and he sounds the same way I do when I'm town and frustrated at people taking random things I said early d1 seriously. Can you clarify what you think he's doing this game that he wouldn't do as town?

I'm treading carefully, having been burned recently by Scum Quid :eng99:

What do people think about Juchero? Am I alone in thinking his suspicion of 50 while not thinking 50 is scum is suspicious?

Also, I'm not a Miller PoS, I'm a flavor Miller. And with Bif's super helpful explanations am maybe not as flavor millery ad I originally thought.

If Tobbs is telling the truth (which right now I buy), that leads more credence to the idea that flavor spec is meaningless / potentially being used by scum to pass as content in lieu of hunting for scum.

I don't like this post at all. You really seem to be pushing a case for someone trying to use his knowledge of flavor to make sense of 50's strange posts.

I'm not saying that I think there's no way juchero is totally cleared, but his contributions have been helpful to me at the very least. he didn't even vote for 50, only correctly recognized the threat of a 3p to everyone. it really seems like you are trying to push a case that isn't there.

My case on Juchero is "he isn't hunting for scum".

I guess I don’t see how simply acknowledging the threat of a potential 3p without voting for them somehow translates to “not hunting for scum”
