Very little actually. I don't think choosing two noobs was the wisest decision, but oh well. What is dead may never die.

Why the interest in the gossip chat Flame? And what are your thoughts on Kyan calling out your posts as mostly fluff?

Stand by town read of Cabot. Splinter feels town as well.

Hell flame is on my list as town for something or another. His jumping in about batsies item being the reason he died reads town to me.

Sky's post concerning the night action on the other hand seemed founded in deep though about it and how it likely played out, seemingly more from a plotting stand point. So scum as hell still.

Snark above aside I did have a post which made me feel particularly bad about kalor, let me dig back into it. But there's been a decent amount of posts today and I've been way too busy with the cute baby.

I'd buy blarg and Ri as well blarg is largely just gut/frustration read.

My read on this game so far is that for the most part, town has been eating town while scum sit back and quietly watch. The relative lack of activity in the game is giving the scum team plenty of opportunity to hide.

Let's go over some of my suspects.

During the end of Day 1, Bronx_Man made a bunch of posts where he made a show of how he predicted the last minute rush (so did everyone who has played more than one GAFia game) and how obvious the scum team was being (without naming any names). Those posts stood out to me at the time for how empty of content they were, and that impression hasn't changed much in the interim. It feels like Bronx is making a show of being engaged while not posting a lot of real content.

I also generally concur with Kyanrute that Flame_AC has been making a lot of fluffy posts. On day one, I got the impression that Flame might have been a town PR keeping his head down, so I was inclined to go along with his half-claim and give him the benefit of the doubt. At this point though, I can't shake some suspicion. Trying to dig up intel on the gossip chat seems kinda scummy, too.

I also think Kalor is suspicious. I think his vote on me yesterday was practically the platonic ideal form of bandwagon votes: following after two other people had put down votes on me, completely devoid of argument and reasoning, and not following previous suspicion he voiced. While Kalor has made some good points, he has also been lying low and is very cagey about his reasons for his votes.

Huh? Which night action? The one where CCS tried to redirect Kyan's action?

That was just me rambling about my impressions. It isn't like I made charts. Blarg probably puts more effort into his post formatting than I put into that analysis.

If anything, my problem this time around is that I have been way too lazy about this game. I need to give the thread a proper re-read, but I have been procrastinating on that. Yes, I know that makes me part of town's problem.

Why wouldn't you use a group chat? After a bunch of us trying not join the love boat, I figured people being offered a "life raft" would be pretty swell.

Can't draw any game conclusions from that, but I just find it interesting. Waffletaco's might be right on that. Could also be three scum hiding in plain sight (just posting extremes).

Perhaps batsnacks was trying to get killed? He may have thought that it was better for an effectively vanilla player to be NKed, rather than a potential PR? Not a likely answer, but it is the best I can come up with.

I did consider that OA and Waffletaco could have been scum and OA could have been trying to get her to post in mafia chat, but the initial method he used to bring it up was way too round-about. He could have gotten the same effect by just skipping the part where he was openly weighing whether or not she was an Ascetic. That seems too round-about, and makes me think that OA is at the very least a little cautious that his fellow gossip-chatters may be scum.

That? Isaac, Flame, and Waffle were just talking about the subject of batsnack's claimed item, I just weighed in with my off-the-cuff thoughts. That post was literally the first time I gave serious thought to the subject. I just develop my thoughts as I type, which sometimes causes me to ramble.

One thing I remember from D2 was Splinter and cabot discussing CCS and taking sides, then Splinter scumreading cabot and dropping a vote on him. It seems a bit odd to me, as why would you use a vote to prove your point when both sides had merit? Maybe that slight pressure led to cabot claiming early.

Most probably. Although, the way they've dealt with the gossip chat has lead me to tend to think that they are not scum-aligned which is all I can ask for really in terms of info from the role.

Any gossip chat involving me would never be especially wordy. Also, I never expected someone to straight up ignore the invitation to the thread...

At that point of the game, Cabot was more townread than not, and I had publicly townread him but moved to scumreading him. I thought that he was arguing to lynch CCS to fit his scummy agenda, and worried that people trusting him would give his argument more credence than it deserved.

Both sides didn't have merit, day two was a huge win for scum.

The fact that he started today with "well now it's clear CCS' lynch benefited scum" makes me think he knew he was wrong all along. He's started playing up the possibility that CCS could have been scum because CCS role at this point would have helped town more than scum.

I don't want to reignite the argument over CCS, I'm highlighting cabot's change of stance this phase.

I also don't understand how Kawl can townread him for it.
