How would you classify Jospehs mafia claiming? Could be a repetition of his bluff he did before and therefore be towny or an actual commitment since he might have assumed we would believe in Case 1. Levels and Levels...

Vote: Calamitas

Agree with silver. Town on LaLight.

Wow, this is actual wagons already, isn't it?

Nobody's commenting on the lack of the word "vote" in Calamitas' "scum-tell" post. Does it mean anything to those of you who're more experienced?

To me it's just an obvious omission, and makes the overall post look more hasty than anything else. I agree that angle brackets themselves aren't a big deal -- I've written a lot of html in my time, so I would naturally default to angle brackets for markup too.

Silverspawn: Every single post he's made. Like I said, he's the only veteran. He has to be a leader.

Saying he's the only veteran is a strong claim that feels like it's intended to sway newbies in a direction that might have us sheeping Silver. I'd like to encourage against that: I've read a few games, including play by Seprix and Iguana as well as RR and Silver, so I know there's more other experience here than this post would have us believe.

People I know nothing about are LaLight and Calamitas, who I think are my fellow total newbies. Mail-mi, have you played in other games before this one?

I believe Roadrunner still considers himself to be a newbie, and only has a high enough opinion of a select few players to call them veterans. This kind of a comment from him is probably not a scum tell.

Okay, not to offend anyone, but silverspawn is the only veteran here. No 2.7, no Awaclus, no Yuma, no people like Jan from othet sites, no ashersky, no Faust, no problem

Actually mail-mi might be. But I can't determine that D1.


So this means that we (meaning everyone minus ss and maybe mail-mi) need to step up our games! Stuff won't get done unless we make it happen! We gotta be active, guys! We gotta chat! Small games are really bad about slowing down, and I don't want that to happen after my short Mafia break!
I'm reasonably experienced, albeit I'm crazy.

But I agree, there's a lot of new people here.

Don't you find that erratic play makes people generally more suspicious of you? Why do people tend to want to keep you alive?

Mh, actually I should have known better. You were the IC in my first game I believe.

Are you the player who said he doesn't want to put too much effort into the game because he plays it for fun, and it shouldn't feel like work? Or am I confusing something?

so RR, what do you think about the scum slip?

Seprix, does igu's aggression make him scum or town?
I can answer these.

After iguana's post and Calamitas' explanation, it seems more like an innocent mistake. Doesn't make him towns, tho.

I think iguana seems more like frustrated town than scum.

I'm a veteran. Being a veteran doesn't mean you're any good; it simply means you've played for awhile.

so RR, what do you think about the scum slip?

Seprix, does igu's aggression make him scum or town?

It's his Awaclus impression that he loves doing. He's stopped trying as of late. Usually Iguana doesn't try until later, but that might be more reflective on his home life and being busy than town/scum dichotomy. I don't know. I'd give a slight scum read on his aggression, since solvy Iguana comes with information, and scum has all the information D1.

Silverspawn: Every single post he's made. Like I said, he's the only veteran. He has to be a leader.

Don't think like this. It is very dangerous. Silverspawn is a double-edged sword. Firstly, he can easily be scum and look town. He's done it before, and he's had a nice long string of scum games whilst looking like a leader and towny to prove my point. Secondly, if he is town, he's going to die real fast, and then bye-bye leadership. Simply formulate your own play. Don't rely on others.

I don't think there's a consensus on what 'leader' means, so... the only scenario where it's okay or even correct to blindly sheep someone is if they are confirmed town.

since I am town here, you can still sheep me, though. It will be bad play in theory, but turned out to have been good in retrospect.

Seprix is the most scummy one so far, I think.

LaLight really seems genuine, so townie points there.

RR: why does ss have to be leader? This seems like it could be a set up for "we mislynched, but I was just sheeping the leader, so it's not my fault!"

But I really don't like Seprix's play so far. It just feels wrong. vote: seprix

Come on.

Let's look at the players
LaLight: I know he's a newb
Roadrunner: I'm definitely not a veteran by any stretch!
Iguana iguana: I havr a high opinion, I just don't consider you a veteran
Mail-Mi: I didn't know
Silver spawn: He's a vetetan by my definition
Calamitas: He's a newb too
Space: See Calamitas and LaLight
Seprix: Maybe I'd call him a veteran if he didn't play so much like me. I still have a high opinion of him though
Joseph: See Seprix

I didn't say he was supposed to be a leader. I said that he needed to stop being mysterious and using bold, colored fonts. I do not think anyone should sheep silverspawn just because he's a veteran
