Interesting development.

I don't think I'm going to change my vote.

As for me being "too convinced" ya'll should have seen me in Dangan Mafia. I was convinced for days IRL time that Crab was scum. And then he was a town PR. lol

Someone tried to pull a Lovers/Lucky Buddies in a game I was in, was that him?

Regarding what? Not changing my vote?

Because why would I change my vote when my convictions haven't changed.

The Dangan thing is a reference to an older game.

regarding you bringing up a time where you were sure and you were wrong in a position where you claim to be sure, setting up the explanation for you potentially being wrong. comes off a little weird to me.

I realized that just hinting at the potential of a power role probably wouldn't be enough to ensure I don't get lynched.

So wait, your plan was to

A) use the PR claim to not get lynched and then
B) Hope that Scum takes the bait and night kills you instead of someone else.

This...honestly makes no sense to me.

I wasn't in Dangan, I should have said FAKE Lovers.

That's actually not that weird imo, the weirder thing is that when he realized just hinting wouldn't be enough, he decided to back paddle and seal his fate instead of claiming a PR which could have made the gambit work.

You didn't hesitate to mention other games when you were going after me?

are you fucking kidding me? they were discussing other games without relation to this game. The first mention by xam was fine even though it didn't add a lot. I referenced another game as punctuation to a statement about this game, even if it was a statement I'd already made.
what are you accusing me of here anyways?

Well I'm being honest. My convictions have been correct before as well.

I'm not infallible, despite being confident.

The stearn thing had nothing to do with this game either.

Kalor had 8 votes before even pulling that "gambit." If he flips town, people jumping on that train should be looked at. Especially with how many votes he quickly seemed to gain after I threw down my first one.

If TheGoddamn doesn't post tomorrow, he should be thrown under scrutiny. I plan on pressuring him for this reason, unless he gets replaced ofc. One post is seriously not acceptable, and it's amazing that he hasn't gathered more suspicion already. Same with Redfalco.

Matt Attack continuing to only reply when poked continues to bother me. As does other people ignoring my request for thoughts on him.

EzekelRAGE has been making me feel much better with his activity in the later part of today.

Roy and CB have been pretty active throughout the day. As I've said, I don't find tunnelling inherently scummy. Although he should probably widen his search a little tomorrow.

Squidyj seemed to have become less active later into the day. I was feeling good about him at first, but it's easy to set a good impression then settle into posting less later once you think you're safe.

Xam is kind of a hard person to read due to his "unique" playstyle. He's familiar enough now that he can get away with his overly fluffy posting, but it still feels like he's under contributing, although there's nothing overly suspicious about what he has been saying.

The StanleyPalmtree opening post thing was such a weird issue to get hung up on, and not something that I'd really read as scummy.

I think those are the main observations I have. I guess take anyone I haven't commented on as a null read.

I didn't read that post of corn as preemptive making excuses for if he ends up being wrong about EzekelRAGE, more like him showing self knowledge and saying he knows he can be wrong at times. I was more annoyed when quantum used "I was wrong in an earlier game" as an argument why he wasn't going to make his own vote choices today, which I thought was completely Bullshit.

As someone he accused, I read it as such. "Hey guys, same thing happened in blah blah, and he was a power role"

I realize that by quoting this and replying, I'm only going to perpetuate your interpretation of me, but I do still want to say my piece. I respond to your posts because you have concerns about me and actively voice them. I will not and have not ignored these concerns. But, hypothetically speaking: if you weren't voicing said concerns, or if you had simply not quoted my last post or two, would I have still posted? Yes. My read list? That wold have been posted. My vote on Ezekiel? That too. My comments on Kalor's situation? Yup. Just because the posts that have contained these things have also contained responses directed towards you does not mean that you are the reason that I am posting. I fully admit to being one of the slower and less confident posters, which naturally arouses some (likely well warranted) suspicion. But your assertion that I will only post when poked by you is 100% false.

If given the opportunity, I will hopefully be able to convince you of my good intentions going forward, because I've apparently done a pretty crappy job of it so far.

Ok, someone made a post about saying that even if Ezekiel was town, he did an antitown thing and probably should he lynched anyways. Who was that?

There's only one vote between me and Ezekel now though I doubt things will change. Hopefully some scum piled onto the vote so it might bring them into the limelight. I didn't play well in this game but nothing I can do about that now.

Im on mobile and can't seem to find it, but I would love to vote for that person. It isn't Ezekiel or Kalor so they wouldn't die, but that struck me as odd.

Pretty calm for an end of day 1, although considering every other end of day 1 I've been part of has either been between multiple townies, or everyone in the game was town, I'm not sure I should read that as a bad thing.

If nothing else can be said about me, you can say that I haven't taken a less than serious approach to all discussions I've been apart of. I don't remember losing my cool or being hostile, other than the"red handed, I'm a scum" post that generated all this drama. I've taken time to answer all the accusations thrown my way. Didn't try to make snide remarks about it or dodge them. None of that can be said of my accusers Squidy and CB.

Keep in mind that Squidy didnt respond to anything in my post about his snide remarks. He didn't want to address anything with the situation about him and CB. Could be seen as a little hostile.
That is not true at all, since I addressed it specifically, on several occassions.


Nice to see that instead you of having a discussion about what I brought up, you just make sarcastic/funny remarks instead.


These 4 statements are basically the same thing as your statement above. Again, this was addressed in my post above. So this big comeback post you had is a lot of fluff, snide remarks, and lies.



Crimson made a post about gettin all ur vote removed before you said anything. Probably thinking you had a power role and you said nothing. Also another failed gambit it seems, wonder what Squidy thinks about this one.
But still continues to reply to my other posts after that one. Like the post about not posting about other games. I made that post mostly to see if he was ignoring me as a whole, or just that post. It was just that post.


Also noticed after SJ posted, CB posted not too long after. Also not addressing my post here:*****KEEP THIS POST IN MIND IF KALOR IS TOWN, even more if he isnt******
I will say at this point CB has conceded that I wouldnt be lynched today (which is still close tbh). We've already gone over why he thinks I'm guilty, which is weak, but w/e.

But why is he so certain Kalor will flip town? Kalor has been lurking for most of the game. Of his 15 posts, it can be argued a good chunk of them are filler. But CB is certain he will flip town even when several others found Kalor's behavior odd. He gives no reasoning for thinking Kalor will flip town. Could it be that CB is scum so knows for a fact Kalor is town? I don't know. I also don't know what glaring posts CB sees that makes him so certain Kalor would flip town.

Will keep the vote thing in mind.

I'm sure your eat crow will involve an "Oops guys I was wrong keep it moving" wiht Squidy chiming in with "It's an honest mistake, Rage made himself look guilty, can't really blame CB for that".

Seems you are losing your cool, getting a little aggressive. Do you have any thoughts on what I posted?
Why didnt you go after Zsubs like you did Star?
Why didn't you answer Zsubs post about you?

He went from this post
Kalor will flip town, Ezekiel is actually scum.

To bringing up this "one time he got it wrong on a town PR"
As for me being "too convinced" ya'll should have seen me in Dangan Mafia. I was convinced for days IRL time that Crab was scum. And then he was a town PR. lol
To
I will widen my search tomorrow.

Note that this post was made while Ezekiel was on the chopping block. It was really weird, and I think someone else pointed it out but then it never got mentioned.

Thought I counted you were up like 2-3 votes?

"I thought there were supposed to be 21 people gathered here but I'd be surprised if we even have half of that. Mr. Edgeworth! Where did everyone go?"

"I'm sorry, your honor, it appears that some of the accused have spread out to different areas of the courthouse in the interim due to the lack of discussion. I assure you that no one has actually left the courthouse but I believe we will have to redouble our efforts to collect everyone here again."

The Judge continued, "Well then, Kalor, I'm surprised to find you up on the stand but in lieu of more concrete evidence. I believe we may have found our murderer. Baliff! Take him away!"



"Do you know who I am? I'm Edgeworth! Gregory Edgeworth!"

"Is he really?"

"I thought Edgeworth's dad was dead."

Miles, obviously shaken by this turn of events, decided to close "court" for the day. Hopefully this would be the end of it.

A low sneer could be heard in the distance.

Kalor has been removed from the game

Welcome Kalor!

You are Gregory Edgeworth, Classy Defense Attorney

Your role is Vanilla Town

Father of the great prosecutor, Miles Edgeworth, you instead walked the path of the defense attorney. Never afraid to stand up to corruption, you were the first person to cause the perfect Manfred von Karma to receive a penalty on his record in the courtroom.

You do not have any actions, but you may judge your peers in the court of law (which means you can vote).

You win when all non-town players have been eliminated from the game and there is at least one town player still alive.

Final Vote Count can be found in the spreadsheet linked from post 3. I'll order it in order of most votes to least in a few minutes.

Night 1 Begins

Those with night actions, please PM me directly. If you do not receive a response back from me then I did not receive your PM and you should try again. I accept PMs up to one hour before day start. At that point, if I have not heard from you, your action will be forfeited. If you have a PR that does not require you to act, I do ask that you still PM me saying that you will be doing no action.

Night 1 ends in:


Eat your hamburgers, town.

Go to sleep

Garbage post. Just realized this post would be number 700 so pushing it so I get top of page for Day 2 start.
