"How do you TWO"

gah.

Okay, I will post nothing else until some people come in here and respond to things. Feel like I'm falling back into old habits and will end up having half the posts in the game, which is bad for anyone's ability to actually read or reread the game to get reads.

Sorry for the post spam here, I'll try to keep it down.

Just seems like I'm going way beyond the pace of the rest of the game. Do you remember my first game ever?

Doesn't your first game predate mine?

It might, I don't know. Anyway, newb!me spammed the crap out of a game and I was town but I think I did more to help the scumteam in terms of creating town apathy than I did anything else. If I think I had a correct scumread on Robz that no one listened to, partly because I drowned myself out in walls of vote count and post count nonsense.

Scummy vibe is just a lack of coffee.

But in the spirit of Lynch All Lurkers
Vote:muenstercheese for being all excited and now suspiciously absent

Lurker lynching is all well and good but what do you think of the game so far? Does any player seem more likely to be town or scum to you?

Hell if I know! It seems like with the number of brand spanking new folks and our general lack of know-how, two of us are not likely to be scum. We wouldn’t know what to do! You’d want a vet in at least one of the spots, right? So, I am less supicious of the lesser known.

I'm a bit weirded out by UE and faust both coming to my defense in their own ways.

*Shrugs* Fair enough, I wasn't expecting to have much support with that post being an oddity, I just wanted to latch on to something similar to a lead. I can vote for you now if it makes you feel more comfortable.

Quote from: UmbrageOfSnow
I'm friends with Uncleeurope and we played one game somewhat like forum mafia before, but a lot less serious with some element of roleplaying and outside-the-thread communication. I ended up mis-scumreading him because of a Skype call we had where basically he was trying to get me to scumread him to generate a read on me.

We also play Dominion, another board game called Summoner Wars, and the roleplaying game Trail of Cthulhu (and recently a game of Fiasco) together. I feel like I can point out when something is about what's expected from him, but he's also probably able to fool me as scum, and therefore I'm prone to oversuspecting him. But I'm aware of that, so who knows where my actual bias is. Anyway, don't blindly sheep my reads on him.

Awwwwww, that's the nicest thing you've ever said to me. <3

@uncle, you still have zero posts, does that mean you have to fill out something every time you want to post?

If so that'll disappear if you make a post somwewhere where it counts. The random stuff thread, for example. http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=18043.msg764966#new

We can be very, very sure that roles were distributed completely randomly and everyone had an equal that of being scum.

Well let me tell you that I can think of no game where I would say that town was crippled by a townie posting too much, but on the other hand there were a plethora of instances where town lost because people weren't active enough. So I would ask you to not restrain yourself.

There, I think I did it, thanks.

I was seriously starting to get the feeling I would be in some insane asylum blubbering about captchas in the near future.

How do you to know each other? Do you think you are likely to be better at reading each other than average?

Just from the Dominion Discord (the running away thing is regarding crew battle challenges on there). I doubt I have any special insight; maybe the lurking makes them slightly more likely to be scum. I'm ok with where my vote is at the moment though.

I'll post some thoughts on things, hopefully that will help.

None of that is alignment-indicative though. And neither is this: I'm town.

If you're town, isn't saying "I'm town" literally indicating your alignment?
