Adventure comes from insufficient planning.

Ernie. posted:

i've been waiting for someone to make this post

i think this is the scum gambit in this game

i asked grandicap if i can anonymously donate points and he said yes, i'm guessing that scum can do that, too, to one another

total number of points for scum might be higher than their in-thread participation might show

and an easy play to make in this game is to stack points on scum, pin a missing night action on a town player who has the 'right' number of points

it's late and I'm not thinking straight. this isn't to say Hal is scum. I've just been waiting for this exact post. had a town read on hal so far for his care-free interactions with xopods/carefree and unprompted reads, but that's now neutral

will come back to it with a fresh brain tomorrow

Ernie seems to have disappeared after saying he would come back to this tomorrow (which was 2 RL days ago)

Amni - Seems to be trying, interesting case against Cpig, probably a thunderdome with CPIG
CPig - counter to Amni, also trying to make a case, probably a thunderdome with amni
DB - Not much of anything, posted a I'm busy message, lurking
Ernie, nothing D2, lurking
Steak is being Steak, no clue as to town or scum
TF - Never played with them before so I should give them the benefit of the doubt. She did make as good as any case right now against me that I did overreact to because of RL stuff, probably town
Xopods - Working really hard to figure out the Amni/Cpig discussion, thinking town
Yuming - She is making cases and participating, thinking town
Hal - Not sure, Hal is good enough to completly confuse me. No read
Mikujin - actively making cases, thinking town
Leith - Town, of course

I have a D&D game tonight, it will probably wrap by deadline, but if not deadline is rolling until I get back

And by back, I mean reading the thread again, I'll be at my computer because the game is remote, but I won't be watching the thread, I'll be throwing fireballs or somesuch

Now it's merk's recipe for dinner! I made it into a salad because I could only find pita chips.


Last night I did the marinade.


I don't have a sous vide, so I tried to do something like this with the parchment paper and then pan cooked the chicken the rest of the way.


Tonight I chopped all the veggies.


Tada! Now I am very full of veggies.

I think TF could be scum for the following:

Token Female posted:

i.e. it reads like a townie/townie slap fight.

this reads like scum inside knowledge of who is town (to perhaps "score points" with town when these players flip inevitably)

Token Female posted:

Xopods, what do you think about my case on CPig?

paging scumbro perhaps?

Token Female posted:

I don't really think that Xopods is scum

oh...... ok..... (scumbrobs?)

Token Female posted:

I'd vote for Sal, or Merk to avoid no one getting enough votes. I don't have a strong feeling either way. I'd be more happy with CPig.

:thunk: two of these players flipped town, the other (cpig) doesn't strike me as particularly scummy imo

Token Female posted:

It doesn't look like there is the interest or the attendance for Xopods. Who else would you consider?

I, too, have a D&D game tonight. Including one player who is a stranger I met on the internet. And now I'm wondering if that person happens to go by the name of Grandicap on SomethingAwful or if it's just coincidence that his game runs at the exact same time as mine.

Anyway, I'll be back in two hours to do my civic duty and make sure we kill someone. I still feel like Miku's the best of my reads but I'm willing to vote any of the people who were on my Scum list.

anyone care to articulate the case on me that isn't addressed in this post of mine?



Mr. Steak posted:

i was getting ready to defend myself, but then checked the votes and there's only 2 on me? why do i feel like more people voted? lol

anyway, i should still defend myself. though i've been trying to shy away from talking about my personal meta, people are expressing suspicion of me based on how they remember me behaving, so i have to address it. so here's my response: differences in my playstyle generally stem from my real life mood and availability MUCH more than what my alignment is.

see:

-mythfia where i was scum and dominated discussions for the entire first two days with horrible really bad ideas that i was pushing with 100% conviction.

-dark hospital 3 where i was town and dominated discussions for two days vehemently getting 2 townies mislunched.

-campfire mafia 2 where i was town, survived until lylo, and pretty much had the same level of engagement as this game. ie: mostly drive-by posts with a smattering of longer opinionated posts and some vague reads. no real casing.

-everyone is cops, where i was scum and varied wildly between hardcore lurking and then suddenly coming in with effortposts.

I can tell you that it's difficult for me to read a mafia game that I'm not in or a part of in someway. I am very unlikely to read these threads closely to understand the context fully.

Personally, I can tell you that I didn't like your voting with Xopods with the reason that, "I find Xopods to be town, so I'm going to trust his reads and not think about it any further than that." Like it's okay to agree with people, but that's just a rubber stamp.

These three votes in ~10 minutes though. Seems quick.
