Yeah, the other scum will see it too. I'm not weaseling out of answering anything, I'd legit rather self-hammer than let scum know my thought process behind voting for e.
Now let us all ponder over what was meant by this. What possible information (besides your role) on night 0 could you have had to share that would have given scum an advantage? I feel like I'm missing one or two steps in this logic train.

In other news, all 3 bandwagons with more than one vote look pretty good to me, especially for information gathering purposes, so for Now I'll VOTE:MiX to keep things relatively even between our frontrunners for our other undecided people in the audience.

Why were you townreading LL?

Does EFHW's entrance to the game change anything for you on that slot?

The biggest strike that people were bringing against lalight was inactivity. At that point alight had already prefaced the thread about their busy schedule  several times. It seemed a bit of a copout to barrel into someone for issues someone admitted readily before most of the discussion had begun. I feel like a scum\LL would have done more to push an agenda with their limited presence given the constraints.

EFHW entering changes only how I will feel about extended activity drops, seeing as this was an opt in.

So if you were null on Space, why didn't you want to lynch them?
Is null not the term used to describe no  strong read one way or another? I don't think it is all that surprising that I'd vote for somebody I strongly suspected of being scum over a new last minute bandwagon for somebody I had no feelings one way or another for.

It was suggested to me that I enter messages here to deactivate my antirobot security measures.

So what about those 2 quotes made you feel Robz was scummy?

Also, Jimmmmmm, LL and Space had support too, why didn't you go there? (in D1)

what were your scumreads when you voted Robz? Surely it wasn't just him, right?
At the time I might have voted for Jimmmmm. I did not feel that LL was scum at all. Was feeling pretty null on Space at the time who had at least been siding with WCD (who I still think has been playing pretty Station-alligned)

I was in fact decently against a lynch until Robz posted those two quotes. The first being a 'no matter how much people are discussing me, no one wants to actually throw the votes my way' and the second being a 'you shouldn't throw your vote at things that aren't going to happen' - which in this case was poetic injustice. The combination of two read as a bit of a challenge.


Eddie's last minute vote-hopping stood out as a way to keep options open, but at the time I believe the only other realistic wagon was Space, who I was definitely not down to lynch at that point.

I am almost certain at this point that either Faust or Awaclus are scum, and we won't know which one is which the bodies hit the floor.

I can definitely see the vibrant case against MiX, but I feel like the polarizing way he's been playing means it theoretically shouldn't be hard to get a bandwagon together after the next night session if the FoS still swings his way after all is said and done.

Honestly, I think Datswan's just a bit preoccupied - sure the inactivity could be scummy - but I think it's more just life being life.

I doubt we'll get any more true info as it's far too early to claim any sort of cop - especially in multiball.

Chickenwarlord, can you tell me what your top scumreads are right now?

Also, what do you want to be your nickname? Chicken sounds a little... insulting maybe, is that fine for you? We could also do CWL I guess.
Chicken is fine as a nickname.

Given how poorly I read yesterday, I'm far from qualified to be making scumreads- but my suspicions have definitely shifted to Awaclus and possibly Space.

Now something unrelated: @chicken, why, exactly, did you scumread Robz? Did you ever say that? I don't see it...
I don't believe I ever posted my reasoning, but straight out the gate he with absolutely no supporting logic voted for me, which might have evoked a mild emotional reaction - I think I'd made 2 posts at that point and he hadn't made almost any either. At that point in time, we were two of the least active players in the game and it seemed that he was trying to draw attention away from himself just by pointing it at me.
But mostly what egged me to my final vote was
I love all the people dancing around with the idea of voting Robz but not doing it.

Same.

and Robz's own

Space, move your vote to someone who is actually getting lynched maybe.

Perhaps I scumread the shoving a vote my way a bit too much but at the time it was
A: a bandwagon that actually had support
B: my first and initial scumtrigger

Alright, I am going to try and get some rest. I will try to tune in later before the deadline should anyone make some serious moves.

Vote: Jimmmm
Are you moving your vote around to ensure that nobody gets lynched at this point. You seem to 'throw things out there', but at this point it just looks like you're trying to divide and play against any kind of united front.

Not sure how important the colon is for searching purposes, but I figured that actually using the correct name and format would help moderation.

Vote Robbz

I guess it makes sense to throw my vote into the ring at this juncture. Robbz was my strongest scumread, and now that it is looking like we are converging for an actual lynch seems to have the most traction. If there is a big shift to Lalight I guess I could be persuaded, but I would much rather stick on this line.

I'd hold off on lynching MiX and Faust.
And by hold off, I mean we should definitely wait to see what goes down in the night, not that they're at the bottom of my suspicion list.

Also, as long as we have you here Chicken...

Who is your top two skum reads?

Who are the two people you would not lynch right now?

I'd say Robbz is probably my #1 skumread at the moment.
A lot of other people are swarming at minor suspicion level, including yourself and Jimmmmm.

I'd hold off on lynching MiX and Faust.

I am so sorry now I even posted the damn thing, I meant to be more of a #Go_FDS_FAM thing... not a #TheirCanOnlyBeOneHighlander_FDS thing...
Could you explain to me what those acronyms are for? I'm not readily familiar with all the shorthand.

This isn't literary theory- we're not dealing with a death of the author situation. We are dealing with living breathing beings on both ends and no one can invalidate a gut reaction.
It doesn't matter how it was intended - an initial visceral reaction to impolite aggression can't be discounted because the other side didn't seek to elicit that specific response. We ALL have to deal with the fallout when someone's personal boundaries are breached and make changes so there isn't a another.

Chicken, my boy! How much have you read past games? Did you do that at all? Do you know anyone's meta? Maybe at least Gloobles? Also, how active have you been these past days? Will you be here at deadline?
I haven't really done very much reading of past games. I think just a bit of the Ghibli Mafia thread. I do have a modest understanding of Glooble's meta.

I should be here to move at the deadline should my stance change.

I donít think MiX is a great option today, Scum donít typically want to be antagonizers early. Heís shifty and weird, but he is also scumhunting emphatically early, when there is no need to do that as scum.
Agreed. MiX is definitely mixing things up and maybe being a bit too eager. I'm not willing to say that I have a town read there, but certainly wouldn't want MiX as a day 0 lynch target.

faust is actually right, Garak should target his guess for most likely NK and top scumread, and not crumb the NK guess.
If Garak does plan to use his power tonight, this is probably the best way to do it.

MiX vs. WCD felt planned/planted, as posited by DatSwan. 
I don't see how anyone could read the initial back and forth and walk away with that from it.  Having to evaluate everything Ashersky says through the lens of someone who would jump on this conclusion bandwagon is going to be difficult.

When I saw the 2 votes thing I assumed there was a claim I hadn't seen.
Same here. Honestly there were some pretty baffling leaps involved in the entire affair. MiX seems to be trying really hard to stir up something, which definitely feels like a fairly botched town play to try and get some sort of lynch going - but a very poorly thought out and executed one. Not sure if I buy it though.
 
They feel like they have been flying under the radar and I didn't really like their chicken vote
I would definitely like to see more discussion from them considering their rather unceremonious vote drop.

I understand your willingness to No Lynch, chicken, as that tends to be optimal in primitive setups, where the cop's super important. This is less true here, where, since every single post is saved, you want everyone to interact early, to generate information useful in later days. The easiest way to do this is to (at least try to) lynch someone, so people have to put down reads and stand by their words and actions.

@UoS: if scum fails to NK, it could also be scum!Kira (apart from doc/bus driver).
It's true that the prospect of all 3 role cops gleaning information from the first night was at least partially on my mind. However, I'm now realizing that they're not all necessarily town-aligned and the fact that we might not even get anybody to step forward with that info is pretty likely.

It also stands to reason that the 'listening intently for verbal tripups so you can point out inconsistencies' style of play doesn't really translate so well to play by post, since it just seems like one isn't there. Having the ability to carefully craft a reply rather than wordsplurge also kind of puts a damper on it too.

@Chicken, at this point I feel like voting for you to see if you wake up, I know that in my first game, I wanted to make a big impression, I believe you should try to do the same: it's pro town, it sets you up for future days, and it helps for future games if those ever exist. So overall it's a pretty good deal!
I mean Day 1 is really difficult to get a good read out of people, but if we want post super unsubstantiated suspicions I'd be willing to wager that Ashersky and Faust are town.
I definitely want to wait for more info before throwing any fingers.
Vote: No Lynch
At least until there are some more actual claims out in the open or some compelling arguments.

Make sure you make a post in the forums somewhere outside the forum games section, this will prevent having to do a captcha each time you post.
Would be nice for finding your posts if you added you ShuffleIT Username or a distinguishable signature to your profile.
Can you tell us about your prior experience and what your preferred pronouns are?
Hopefully my signature is now somewhat searchable for clarity.

Prior mafia experience is basically all in person stuff. This is my first time in a play by post mafia engine. I can already see that there's a lot more theorydiving and conjecture than IRL setups.

Preferred pronoun is he.
