Also, apparently someone thought the newbie that was incredibly suspicious in pequod despite being town there wasn't suspicious enough, because...

**I AM A MILLER.** *This is not a joke claim.*

I am Jin, the Stranger, and I am a town aligned miller because I'm a *weird foreigner*. I am claiming day one because, well, miller. This is apparently what you do as a miller. I do not have any powers, an as such I am essentially VT.

I cannot help but notice that Keane has avoided reciprocating my friendly glare. Has he reconsidered the sincerity of our bond, now suspecting me of committing the very crime I intend to solve? Or perhaps he distances himself from the scrutiny of my gaze, fearful of what he may reveal in his reply? My left eye maintains the friendly glare, but curls to add a note of disappointment.

Master Ishtil had perfected the skill of looking in two places at once, and I now practice it by training my right eye upon Podima, who had accused me of dark wizardry and sinister magicks. It is true that I have embraced such rumors to enhance my reputation; employers pay more when they believe they are buying supernatural service. Podima is right to fear me, whether for the sake of the guild or merely for himself. Even so, it is alarming that my reputation has spread so far that I am now blamed for the actions of some distant sailor, despite never having left the lands of Chamaz, to my eternal regret.

I am Alkham, Iskana's Curse. I have only ever been Alkham, and though my hands are stained red with blood, the sins I carry are my own alone. I will be judged for the crimes I have committed in my long journey for vengeance, and for the crimes I have yet to commit, but never for the crimes of others. If Podima thinks he knows me for the actions of someone else, my glare assures that he will soon know disappointment.

I can't reciprocating your glare, for when you look upon me you see a picture of transcendent beauty, and I cannot say the same.

I caught up and was also thinking Sal was scummy for his strange callout on Pod that's hedgy:


But I'm also uncomfortable with how fast this bandwagon is forming.

I think Keane's "I don't need to explain myself to you, scum" is a generally lovely thing to do cause it does nothing but gets people flustered. So Keane, since you have a town read on me now, why are you voting Sal? How is that post you quoted read poorly?


I don't really like this, it feels very much like a bandwagon vote with little reason. "Oh you don't usually go on the offensive" when I don't even know what that means?

Might vote Mona for this, but still like my current vote.

Would also definitely vote bowmore as a lurker vote because I don't really expect him to actually participate at any point and might as well get it out of the way.

Getting people flustered has a value in and of itself~~~

I would vote Pod as well although I know you aren't wild about that answer. I'm sorry it's just the way I feel.

Let's break this down:

"Just because I took off my vote off of Max doesn't mean I won't vote for him come deadline. "
The first sentence defends taking the vote off of Max, and then says Sal will revote.

"I voted for him in haste and it came off as OMGUS instead of a genuine vote."
The second sentence defends the initial vote, and, importantly, talks about how it was received instead of the intent.

"I'm not wild about his play."
Third sentence states Sal does not like Max's play, running counter to taking the vote off of him.

" I would vote Pod as well although I know you aren't wild about that answer. "
I'm pretty suspicious of folks talking about Pod, but the second point here is also going into managing how it's perceived.

"I'm sorry it's just the way I feel."
This is a weird apology to post, because why would you apologize if you thought you found scum?

It's a short post but it doesn't work together, and each sentence right after each other lacks a flow and coherency I would expect from town. I don't like it.

Against my better judgement, I am trying to see where the Classic Keane ends and the Suspicious Keane begins.

Maybe I'll focus on you the next day.


Sal, to me, is someone who plays cautious - sometimes overtly so. It's, at best, a read based more on Sal's character. He gets flustered easily and backtracks quickly, but rarely would I see him say something as brazen as 'if you don't justify a vote don't make it'. Maybe that's a bad read, personally, but I consider itself something that reads more like scum who got caught trying to posture in such a way to keep more votes forming on them.

I agree with this.

SalTheBard posted:

The great thing about this game is I don't know what your loving alignment is. Let me break my post down word by word by word so maybe you will loving understand:


I PERSONALLY feel like manipulating peoples emotions in Mafia is a lovely loving thing to do. I think that doing it is a scummy thing to do (not that that makes you scum, you could be rear end in a top hat town, who knows)


I am town, you could be town, we could both be scum slap fighting! Thats the great thing! I operate from the assumption that people are town and want to engage in good faith conversations


The heart of the issue and why my hands are shaking in fury right now is when I tried to engage you in good faith you didn't. Had Asiina not put pressure on you I don't think you would've ever engaged back. Leaving a post like yours out there with no ability for me to refute it could lead to a town miskill tonight.

I'm seriously beginning to think you are just loving with me at this point because there is no way that post could be read any other way than the way I intended it.

I will point out this and then stop engaging at all:

-Assuming everybody is town is a poor way to conduct scum hunting.
-I have no obligation to engage with somebody I think I scum. I have no obligation to engage with anybody. If that gets you very upset, that is unfortunate, but your anger about that is anger about something I am entirely entitled to do or not do, both within social standards and within the game of mafia.

Now, I still do think Sal is scum, but I also don't think he's faking being mad about this, so I'm going to let my points rest for now.
