Real-talk: I deffo think we should discuss night actions OR OR OR not discuss night at all and engage at length whom is and isn't playing like town.


I think we should discuss that I was the only one with a failed action and how sad that makes me that I didn't get to join in on the clusterfuck :(

Hi I'm going to claim because

Toalpaz posted:

I'm inclined to think town role block would have claimed by now. I think IP is cleared basically. I'm most interested in Mona, DB, and RF because of their weirdness about night actions.

However Mona actually wanted to play D1 so I would say they're pretty town looking in the scale of things.

I don't like this post. It's defending/clearing someone (me) who's been under absolutely no scrutiny whatsoever. I think Toal wants to look smart/townie for clearing me ahead of time if I turn up dead tomorrow.

I'm not a bus driver. I'm a traffic cop. I can investigate someone every night to determine if they are a BUS DRIVER or NOT BUS DRIVER. The important part of that action is that it can't be redirected. So last night even though basically everyone redirected Monathin, I would have gotten an accurate result on him had I not been (I assume) blocked.

Anyway I wanted to get that out there because I can still be moved around by buses and I was a little paranoid that if Toal is scum then they had sussed out that there was a reason for me not claiming what my failed action was, leading to the above post.

Let me add that those are some strange leaps in logic and I don't think that thinking comes from the town perspective.

In a small game I think claiming early is valuable if you have reasoning for it. If there's 2 scum (I think that's a fair assumption in a nine player game) then we're only two days from lylo, assuming we don't no-lynch anymore.

It's also easier to protect me (assuming scum don't have a similar power that goes through redirects) without worrying about the protector being found out, unless my failed action was the result of a town action (unlikely at this point), because, shockingly, there seem to be a lot of drivers.

Also

Toalpaz posted:

IP is claiming a non standard (non busdrive) role

fair, but it would be silly to just have everyone be a busdriver and expect the game to work at all so there are going to be some roles

Toalpaz posted:

and that he was targeted by a non standard role, which is bad and unlikely IMO

bad logic imo, why would scum also be bus drivers in a setup like this?

If you assume two scum, a one in six chance (or two in seven if you count the kill) isn't that unlikely

Hello.

I checked RF last night and got a BUS DRIVER result

Seeing Mona's flip makes me wonder if that was the trap designed for my role, or if there is a scum bus driver. Maybe it's both.

I will say though that a scum self hammer really feels like a way to try and prevent a scumbro from having to vote for them because people tend to look it the votes for a bus (:v:) when scum is voted out, and you and Gulag were the only ones who didn't vote toal that are still alive (with the third being dead town)

I also did most of the legwork without the role itself.

Hard to really say in a game with as few posts as this one. I was certainly unsure enough at first that if people were actually talking and playing the game I could have ended up with different targets. But with little to no discussion outside of day 2 all I could really do was just push my own thoughts and hope people went along with them.

I think the two no-lynches probably hurt scum more than my role did.
