although a benefit to being able to talk at night is if you get nk'd you get the chance to still talk about how your reads evolved after the lynch happenedJFC I check this thread 20 times during the night and nothing
Now there's like 20 posts
I think talking about game related stuff at night is bad. If your out of NK territory but you start to play your hand at night you could become the NK which is harmful to town because the dead are often easily forgotten
So I'm just gonna sit here and talk about random ****.

eh idk, it just sounded like something scum might take a risk to say, given the visibility of cult discussion so farHow so? I'm still going to scum hunt. I'm just throwing thoughts out there as possibilities, in case I die and there's a possibility that that's the case but no one else says so. I think it would be weirder for mafia to say that they're townreading most people, since mafia actively wants to make others look bad to get mislynches.
No, no. I read where you said one post flipped him the only other person you've voiced serious suspicion on to probably town not gonna lynch. Given you saying you're town reading too many people I would figure you'd be more willing to move him from sus to null but still lynchable myself unless your intent is to deliberately stay as neutral as you can.Because I read the wagons wrong just now when I went back and looked. Lmao. But even then, you must have missed me changing my read on KoD to a town lean before that. My suspicion on him before was rather weak and I admitted as such, and when he posted with an substantial post it felt more like town KoD so I changed that. Whereas Fext hadn't done anything to look townie to me yet. Also, that still creates as 3 v 3 v 2 scenario, which is what I was also trying to avoid. One vote on me makes it a 3 way tie, and if people come in close to eod and start switching votes it's harder to keep up with the count making it more likely that someone switches to prevent a tie, someone else does the same, and we still end up with a tie. Which kills more than just 1 person.
I didn't absolutely think Fext was cult leader but I thought it was a possibility. I also thought it was a possibility he was just in a neighborhood with Alana, which would mean he could be any alignment, and Alana went from somewhat defending him to voting him so in a world where they're neighbors then she had reason to suspect him from their OC. This was a theory and nothing I believed 100%, but in the chance that it was true it made Fext look sus. Alana was nowhere in my reads besides null really, so I dunno where you get that she was in the higher end of my non-town reads. Unless you mean with the idea that Fext was cult leader who targeted her n0. In which case, I still vote Fext there? My decisions make sense, and your spin of them doesn't.
Aye, votes are votes and you're arguing survival against non existent votes. Also your logic there works with every person ever. I had no votes but I could have picked up votes in a CFD so my vote placed anywhere is justified because it's survival vote increasing the gap between me and whoever I vote for. But anyways the point wasn't that there was no context of self pres in there, it was that the vote is far more nuanced than "this is the only thing I can do to survive" and so requires more introspection than just immediate dismissal.Yea. Doesn't matter if the votes on her are jokes, votes are votes. If she wanted to increase the gap between hers and the Fext one it makes sense for her to vote the leading one.
It's not the towniest thing to do but it's still fairly NAI to me in this context. Specially from Minish, iirc she hates being lynched regardless of her alignment so she'll self preserve regardless.
Alana explained it p well.
If Cap Lunch was mafia him jumping last second at the Fext wagon would make him look fairly bad at first, which is undesired for mafia.
I think it would've been a lot scummier if he added a last second vote that did nothing to a mafia lynch, because that would be purely for towncred. In the other way around he just got himself mafiacred which is just... not something mafia would do...? DOES THAT MAKE SENSE
Now you're really just copying me.What's everyone's favorite ice cream
I'll fully expect you to follow up tomorrow then.@capsfan
"more irony in CL talking about how ex wasn't answering his question about being unloved and then he just ignores this one lol"
I read that and thought he was breadcrumbing something, but didn't know what the hell he was talking about at first, I just did realize what he meant this morning about the Rag cult rules. Because its retorical at face value, obviously I was capable of voting Ex, or that's what I would claim. Then the matter of proving I can vote, which would force my vote right before deadline unless I got a vote count just for me. So basically I had to say something clever, but I didn't know wtf he was talking about at the time.
You should be pointing out how she said that while not really scum hunting at the same time.eh idk, it just sounded like something scum might take a risk to say, given the visibility of cult discussion so far

You don't have to absolutely think it. If you're susing Fext for the possibility that he's cult and culted a'lana than it's natural to sus a'lana for being cult as well, which is my point and what you're posts definitively lack. A'lana isn't an easy lynch sell in that scenario though so...
Anyways the entire point of this exercise is to pressure your read on a'lana but I lost my train of thought here. Don't post and work is today's lesson.

That makes about as much sense as getting into a land war in asia. But seriously do we really have to do the whole song and dance or should we just skip to the part where it's revealed both cups have iocane powder in them?
hypothetically, if you are scum and a partner exists in the more widely townread/active players (you, alana, numbers, maybe kod?) i can see you making that statement as you'd be pretty comfortable where you're at rn - all you gotta do is focus town's energy on the cult & focus energy away from whoever your third partner would be, if they exist. yeah, the first flip of mafia would dispell it but in this world i think you'd have a pretty easy time keeping that from happeningBut what point would scum have in saying that? To make people think that there aren't mafia so they only try to lynch cult? Even though the first flip of mafia would dispell that theory, and any NKs are likely to be mafia? As scum I don't really see a point of saying that to try to dissuade scum hunting or something when it's easily disproven.

Because I had very weak suspicion on him to begin with. And his post that I started town leaning him from was way more townie KoD than my suspicion of him was scum KoD. That's why he didn't go to null. I don't try to stay neutral as scum, because it's a lot easier to point out scummy stuff when you know way more info. But when I'm town I'm trying not to mislynch town so things are trickier.
My thought was that Fext was EITHER cult leader or neighbor. I didn't think he had culted Alana n0. If he was neighbor I thought he was more likely to be mafia or some other 3rd party with the ability to add people to a neighborhood. That's why when Alana said she didn't think he was cult leader and then suspected him later on, I was suspicious of him and not her. Alana is bull to me because I'm not really sure how to read her yet.
I've been scum hunting though. Just because I have more town reads than anything doesn't mean I haven't been looking for scum. I've pointed out things I've found suspicious, even if I've gone on to town read/not want to lynch those people. Because I can see certain things as sus, but also see more of someone's town range as well.
