Depending on what "for a win" means, you could even say that you played Sea Hag, you saw that it flipped over the opponent's only Gold, and that made you sure you could safely break PPR this turn to win on the next.

TEMPLE is a powerful 1-3 card trasher that can act as a VP token generator instead if necessary. Oh, and it's ALSO PROMPT.

I guess I have to do this if there's no other way to stop you from talking about your reads.

We've never had any wood whatsoever in Dominion so far, right?

Technically, cardboard is made out of wood.

I know this is the exact opposite of bad luck, but I don't know where to put it:

Isn't that what "Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry" is for?

Yes, but that thread is a bit more difficult to find because it's actually in the appropriate subforum, which is rare for game reports threads.

If we no-lynch without talking one of us wonít get to have an opinion.

I think that might be important, but what do I know?

Plus itís not like their kill could be influenced that much. I doubt it would move too far from what is already planned in their heads. I would think itís obvious...?

Once you're dead, your opinion isn't really going to matter very much because other people are still going to trust their own opinions over yours.

Their kill could totally be influenced. There were two flips, one of which was scum, and only one person so far has voiced their reads in the light of those flips. If you figure out the scum correctly here and say that out loud, that makes it super easy for scum to get rid of you before LyLo.

The problem is that we all know is getting killed tonight. So why not wait that part out

Vote: Awaclus

Stop with this nonsense.

So yeah no lynch is the play. I think we should do it tomorrow over today though from an information gather POV.

The information gather POV is exactly why we should do it today over tomorrow. We want to force scum to decide on the first night kill without hearing any more from us.

We definitely should talk a bit first before throwing the day away, we learned some valuable info with Hydradís reveal. We should just calm down a bit.

We can no-lynch later if we need to.

We should avoid talking about reads though, as that will make it easier for scum to kill correctly.

What is there for scum to read correctly? Both doctors are done, so we are VT and scum, right? Am I missing something?

You are missing that we have reads. Scum wants to kill the townies who correctly read scum and the townies who are being correctly townread by most of town, and they want to keep easy mislynch targets around.

Did you ever worry that the recent expansions have been trying to do too many new things at once? Up through guilds, each expansion had one or two mechanical themes, then adventures comes along with 4 (Events, reserves, player tokens, travelers. Not counting durations, as they're pretty much standard now), empires with 5 (Events, Landmarks, Debt, VP chips, Split piles), and Nocturne with 5 (Nights, non-supply piles, Boons/hexes, Heirlooms, states)
It depends on the mechanic - does it make you reach for the rulebook or not - but yes. I think the recent expansions have gotten too complex. I always cite how Vampire makes you read 18 cards to know the full story.

As you will see, despite having 4 mechanics, Renaissance is much simpler.

18? I count only 14 (card-shaped things)...What are the other 4?

Deluded, Envious, Miserable and Twice Miserable. Alternatively, Deluded/Envious, Miserable/Twice Miserable, Curse and Copper.

Thanks, Awa. I appreciate the help!

So, it seems in our best interest to no lynch, then. Next question....do we do that soon?

It doesn't make a huge difference in this situation but I think it could be slightly better to do it today.

Can you explain that more to me, Chairs? We want an odd number, why? (Think of this as your newb service...)

If we have an odd number, we'll go into LyLo with 3 people alive so 2 townies have to nail a 50% chance to lynch scum. If we try to lynch from MyLo with 4 people alive, 3 townies have to nail a 33% chance to lynch scum so that's a lot more difficult.

This is compounded by so many modern songs lacking the musicianship of previous decades, so there's no point in me listening to a vocal I don't appreciate, put onto a synth backing track or looped sample, probably overproduced

There's probably way more musicianship going into the creation of the "overproduced" synth "backing track" than The Beatles playing their instruments.

Hmm, have you forgotten that Sir George Martin and the Beatles are renowned for their innovation in the studio as well?

Nope, I have used some of those techniques myself. That being said, the level of knowledge in music theory that is required to use synthesizers to create your sounds is insane, and a lot of modern producers are great at designing synth sounds.

Glasses were invented before the renaissance.

Had a talk with someone about how in a couple of decades, people will be able to fairly accurately guess someone's age by which Star Wars films they saw first.

This got us talking about other benchmarks to measure someone's age.

First Batman
First James Bond
First Doctor
First Tim Currey character

Though my measure of Doctor is a bit off because I didn't start watching until Matt Smith. If I had watched Doctor Who as a youth, I'm sure Tom Baker would be my first. Doctor Who isn't quite as mainstream as the other benchmarks.

Batman Begins
Casino Royale
Haven't seen Doctor Who
Cardinal Richelieu

How do we know you're town if you're giving literally no content to work with? Saying "I'm town" all the time doesn't help, you see

If I gave you content to work with, it wouldn't be genuine anyway.

Hydrad/Awa/WCD/LL/Eddie

Sure, Iíll throw my hat in.

We need to start removing names, though.

We can start by removing Awa.

I agree, I believe our current candidates are Awa/Hydrad/LL

I wouldnít be opposed to WCD either.

WCD is just as much of a candidate.

I think Awaclus is actually scum here.

You think wrong.
