Iím caught up. I agree that datswans defensiveness has felt scummy. But Faustís post about scum wanting to not combat votes they receive is very true, it happens all the time. I donít like how quickly the Dylan wagon grew and for the reasons. It was almost a mix of scum reads and pressure votes to reveal his datswan scum tell.

I really want to vote lalight which means heís probably town.

Actually vote: silverspawn I donít like his Dylan vote and his jokey ďI donít like my own caseĒ comment is scummy.

I agree with all of this except the Dylan wagon, the Dylan wagon was fine.

If you agree with that, it implies that you have some kind of problem with the explanation I gave above, because as I see it, the thing on me is just a point of confusion. So what's wrong with my explanation?

Your jokey "I don't like my own case" rings scummy to me, as it did to mcmc.

I think I'm still happy with my vote on Dylan. I am realizing Umbrage is quite an under scrutinized player today.

As far as D1 cases go, not bad at all.

Dylan's case on Datswan, you mean?

Ok, thatís L-2. Whatís our policy on claims?

Well, we should let Dylan claim if he gets to L-1. Hammering him without giving opportunity for this would be extremely scummy.

I am a fan of short Day 1s, though I am pretty much alone in this.

jeez. At some point you have to conclude the scum are doing it on purpose just for the memes.

It's often because he's legitimately good at being town!

On the other end of the spectrum, I'm never night killed, unless I'm a PR or something.

We really have to give Faust a day 1 pass, at any rate. Letís not do scumís job for them. If heís alive tomorrowósomething that quite literally almost never happensóIíll reconsider.

This feels lining-up-future-mislynches scummy.

It isnít and it doesnít

Rereading now. Iím really happy to see that ďtwinclaimĒ is still in the vernacular. I was the original twinclaim that spawned the term (though I wasnít the one who coined it).

Anyway based on my reread Iím kind of OK with my current vote on Jimmm. Heís been just present enough to not get lurker suspicion but absent enough to not get much attention of any other kind. Heís been quick to vote and talk theory but hasnít really offered any reads or anything of substance.

On another note: Robz, why should Faust, or anyone, get a day 1 pass?

Well, Faust is arguably the strongest town player in our party, and scum kill him Night 1 in what seems like a majority of games. So he is sort of a special case.

Look at me, starting conversations of my own volition. I think I should just get the MVP nod right now.

Mcmc is doing his "I am town" analysis of other players, which is good. It means he's town!

vote: josh for asking this question too early. Smells like scared scum.

Vote: silverspawn since I donít believe this is scummy and Joth is far more easily explained as energetic returning player than scared scum.

Also, Vote: Robz for hating D1 and never participating. D1 is as useful, and often moreso than almost any other day as it establishes the baseline for the rest of the game to follow.
And the baseline you seek to establish is policy voting?

He's given me no reason to believe he's not scum. That can be said of others, too, mind you - but as Robz won't play D1 unless given a reason, yes, I'm perfectly content with that vote right now.

Fair, but I am intending to play this day 1 anyway. Iím going to surprise you!

Ha, I read that piece today and was wondering how you pitched it to them.

Yeah, I generally don't have to get my pitches pre-approved at my normal place of business.

I mostly write about politics, but today I took the occasion of OoT's 20th birthday to consider its themes and legacy. Possibly of interest to Zelda fans:

Game Reports / What's More Expensive Than Alchemist? Nothing
« on: December 06, 2018, 12:21:17 pm »
I just had a really fun time utterly ruining my opponent's strategy. There wasn't a whole ton going on in this kingdom, no real engine to speak of, very little pay off, only Pooka for trashing, no way to get rid of the Cursed Gold Curses. My opponent went for mass Chariots, which is in my opinion almost always correct, but I went straight for an Alchemist stack.

My opponent got to 4 VP with his Chariots before I could purchase my sixth Alchemist. That was the one that made all the difference, because it ensured that Alchemist was always the top card of my deck when he played his Chariots, and there was nothing in his deck that could possibly cost more than Alchemist, thanks to the Potion cost. This stopped him fairly dead, since he was counting on his Chariots for economy, as well as VP. He resigned soon thereafter (not sure he was totally out of it, but he was frustrated).

Due two a number of unexpected circumstances, I am now the DM for not one, but TWO D&D groups. Both meet monthly. I was formerly a player in one of the groups, but the DM moved away so I was asked to take over, and then it turned out he had another group, etc.

I've now hosted three sessions. It's so much fun! And it's going decently well. But I thought I'd post here, in case any of you have more experience DMing, maybe you have tips to share.
