GM NOTE

Nobody has indicated to me that they want a Thursday deadline.

Therefore the deadline remains Friday, as indicated by the Peterbot.

VOTE COUNT 7.1.1

Chaqa (1) - rdrivera2005
rdrivera2005 (1) - Chaqa

Currently NOBODY.

A variable amount of time remains but currently the countdown is at 46 hours and 13 minutes.
So it's gonna be up to me. I'm not sure if Chaqa is genuinely in a quandary or faking it.

Gonna take my time.

something just broke in my head trying to decide if you're serious or trolling

you haven't played since we stopped using QT... so i'm honestly not sure.

I don't think Lfischl would think to make that a strategy, but Bozo might.

@Damo @RDR: thoughts?
Does scum Chaqa say this?

I’m not the one voting for me.
You are voting for a townsperson.
We have that in common, maybe.

What do you think about the oddities I found between Bozo and yourself and Bozo and rdr?
I think it shows I'm unlikely to be paired with Bozo (but I know that). Not sure it says anything about rdr.

Damo, if you are town, I would implore you not to just insta-yeet Balki.

I'm not sure it's him now.

I've made my mind up.

If I survive I will hammer Balki.

If I die then @Chaqa and @rdr you have my permission to hammer Balki.

If Balki is town it's just too bad

Gonna msg GM to hammer night.
This isn't great.

So time enough to change the NK which surely happened.

Now why change the kill from almost certainly me to Balki?

rdr now knows Chaqa may not kill Balki in the a 3 way so would need Balki to vote Chaqa - but that is likely so why change

Chaqa would have to vote rdr but unlikely to get Balki to follow so perhaps more incentive to switch

Oh I don't know.

I think you can change the NK unless everyone else voted to hammer (and I know I didn't).
Trying to hide the fact that he did and therefore knows you can?

If this day ends soon, and Bozo is scum, and tomorrow the vote is between me and Chaqa, then whomever casts that vote, please focus on two things:

(1) The subject matter of lfischl’s Day 1 posts and (2) Chaqa’s complete lack of saying anything negative (or anything at all) about lfischl, despite saying lfischl was his leading scum read and voting for lfischl when there was no attention there at all.

Assuming the team is Chaqa/Bozo/lfischl, Chaqa has done something similar here to what he did with lfischl. He casts a bus vote, and then he asks others to switch.

He wants credit for the bus, but his preferred action is obviously to save a teammate.
@Chaqa - I was re-reading Balki and you just ignored this message. Any comments?

Well, it wasn’t addressed to me, and I answered all of his questions previously, it’s not my problem if he kept wanting “better” answers.

I also think it’s disingenuous as I was primarily town reading Bozo literally until Damo end voted

I didn't remember any time a night was hammered, I suppose it's like day hammer where you can undend if majority wasn't reached. I PMed Jamiet and the night was hammered shortly after so I suppose my hammer was last.

Either one of you would have had an easy time getting Balki to vote for me.

But I also don't see how getting me to vote with you would be easier than you voting for Balki.

In a vacuum, this kill looks incredibly bad for me.

Rivera makes sense b/c he knew I had been townreading him and suspicious of Damo bussing Bozo.

Damo, meanwhile, has little motivation to do this, I think, since he knows in a RDR/Chaqa/Damo three way I'm likely to vote for him. But he also knows Rivera would probably vote for me. But at the same time, how is that easier than killing Rivera and letting Balki make the kill on me?

Interesting, no-one voted for me so far. So I feel I should post this preemptively, just in case folks do vote for me – I don't want this post to come across as being reactive to that.

- I still believe that following through on the binding vote makes the most sense and is the optimal move. For reasons of Pool of Elimination coupled with yavozovic thread.

- If you disagree, I humbly request that you vote for me. The rules say nothing about surviving being a part of the victory conditions AFAICT, merely that our side wins. So when my role as a Townie will be revealed upon my death, that should give the good Townies enough info to win the game IMHO – assuming they will spend the time to carefully re-read the backscroll of last night and today. So I can "pawn sacrifice" myself and it's a win/win either way in my mind.

Think about it – either the above is sincere, so let me do my "pawn sacrifice" if you are not onboard with the binding vote. Or the above is a reverse psychology attempt by a Mafia, so vote me and kill a Mafia. You win either way!

Thank you in advance!
I still think you are town but this post is really bad. If you are town you should not want to sacrifice yourself. Townies have two goals: finding scum and showing they are townies to other town people. Town usually win by forming a town core and not by some next level PR play.

This said, my town core now includes Balki, Koala and Worcej.

I feel Bozo and Chaq seeming just not invested in the game, which is a bit scummy. Lfishcl and Yav are just coasting and are not bad choices too. But I will keep my ##vote Damo, his reads are just platitudes. Town read Bozo for stating the obvious, vibes, feel...
This post from rivera is weird. You say it's scummy that Bozo isn't invested, but then you town read Bozo for "stating the obvious, vibes, feel..."???

Greetings fellow townies and some evil outlaws. Just forgot this game was starting on Sunday. At least there are only 4 pages to read.

And I will claim 100% confirmed vanilla town at first post just to avoid any shenanigans over this.
I smell a bluff here. Why use the unnecessary 'will'? Anybody else get that vibe?

This shit is really annoying. I have to claim first thing all games because of you that exposed me as PR the game I didn't. Are you PR fishing this time or just being obnoxious?

So, I hard claim 100% confirmed vanilla town ™️ . Happy?
This interaction is one scum and one town, but which is which?

Alright, I feel like I am losing you. What do you mean town-led? Is that a more meaningful push than volunteering?

So we vote someone, Mafia kill them...what sort of immediate info do we gert?

I'm too inevriated to make a lot of sense. Just say, wait until tomorrow Brian.
Our Process of Elimination or Pool of Elimination ("POE") is the group of players we narrow down for daykills. If we can avoid moving scum out of our POE, and correctly place enough townies outside of our POE, we win by simply killing everyone in our POE.

Whomever ends up the leading vote getter tonight is going to be someone in the heart of our POE. It is going to be someone who is suspicious to many of us, and who we are going to need to daykill eventually to narrow down the roster. If Mafia want to deny gambler an item by using a night kill on someone squarely in our POE, then that is a win for town, and we'll have a normal Day 2 where we kill someone else in our POE.
Agree with you here, Mafia won’t kill the voted player (if we vote Mafia for obviously reasons and if we vote town they won't kill a sure miskill).

On theory I agree with this idea, as making sure Gambler get an item is great, even with some items being weak. But in practice we might have a voting with less participation as night is shorter and lot of people participate even less at night. We also need to set an "end of voting" time, so the gambler could submit his order without worrying with changes and this might be tricky considering different tome zones and schedules.

##vote Damo
rdr only half hearted support for gambler, no reason given for voting me
