I get the sabi wagon... and further silence from their corner does not help.

Looking elsewhere, though, too.

I just reread rdr... and I find him disengaged.

He 'defends' his opening post somewhat, but nothing more than a light defense. Sabi thought him overdefensive, I actually find him underdefensive.

He responds to llama's comment about crossbow with a 'shhhh... don't talk about it now' which seems artificial. Nothing llama asked or hinted at would be news to scum. It tastes like TRYING to be protective of town.

He mutters about ghug's almost-buddying him, which is ok, I guess.

But this is the thing that stands out to me, regarding tie votes.
First, rdrivera writes:
Day-1 06:20 page 6 / orig "I have to vote and don't have any good reason.

I will ##vote Kak just to keep the vote tied and see if he shows up."


Using a tie vote as a motivator/impetus on kak. Note it is, of course, a long way from EoD.

But a little later (still hours away from EoD) he criticizes my using a tie vote in a similar way: ↑dargorygel: "Ok... this ties it three ways with plenty of time.
##VOTE RDR"

RDRIVERA: It doesn't ties because Brad vote isn't counted by bot. I can vote Yoak or Sabi to tie it but a tie isn't a great outcome to D1.

My point is this: It demonstrates two possible things. First, it shows a standoff analysis. Surfing, without rdr's usual thoughtfulness. But second, it might be protecting kak.

tldr: scumteam rdr and kak.

It's not a great analysis, I realize. But we have such little data.
##VOTE rdr

(I could vote today for sabi until they start playing (I hope they're ok!!!) or kak, similarly, although I dislike what little kak has had to say more than I dislike what sabi has said.)
I think you already answered yourself. But to be clear (probably someone will say I am over/under/Uber defending me) my first vote was to keep Kak under pressure to see if he shows up and play.
And I don't have problems with ties close to EOD. Ties usually force people to assume a position and less easy to scum lay low.
What I pointed to you is exactly you were not tying it because you ignored Brad vote that wasn't counted by the bot but was accepted by GM and Ray it could generate confusion at EOD.
And if I want to defend Kak why I would make his wagon viable voting him first place? I decided to move out of him after Worcej (who I townread) said it was a bad wagon and then I read that Kak's message that I skipped at game start and thought he was baiting a NK.
I want to start echoing my inner ghug dialogue about I should do the opposite of what I actually think, but then am I actually thinking it or doing the opposite?

##vote Sabi

Frankly, over-the-top commentating about forgetting or will be catching up - you've posted 7 times and 3 of them were about needing to catch up. You're playing mafia on other platforms enough that it shouldn't be hard to remember you're in this game too. This is coming off as an act now.
worcej... what is your inner ghug? and wanna stay on rdr with me?

So folk... before we get TOO far down this tunnel, does anyone have concerns over anyone other than sabi and kak and brad (all of which COULD fix our opinion...) or rdr?

It would be good to have our thoughts on the table, lest we forget.

obviously.

Again, today I am happy with a kak, or sabi, or rdr wagon.
Damo is doing just enough to not be on my radar. I cannot read maniac worth a crud. I am null on Llama

My inner ghug says to not do what I think I should do, but I am thinking while I am talking to my inner ghug so I'm just YOLO'ing it (/s)

To expand: I was more just joking I keep going back and forth on rdr.

That is what I thought you meant. I am unsure on rdr. Every time he writes, he seems more surfing to me. Kak's and sabi's and Brad's 'silence' is more damning each day.
But I ALSO realize it just might be real life, and scum is happy to let us kill lowposters. MOST of us are staring at kak for this, so it is easy for scum to go along.

I am usually a lower poster, I admit. I now am experiencing what others have yelled at me for.

llama seems good to me. But I have not played a lot with him. When he was scum (near thanksgiving?) he was more argumentative and flipflop. Or so I remember.

I can usually read damo. Or we just kill each other. But I lean town on him. He is interacting well, with the material we have. He is just stubborn enough to be town!damo.

And maniac has given just enough serious stuff to give me confidence in his towniness. He has NOT pushed his handsomeness, which is a concern, though.

Kak and brad's silence is less damning to me because they are not saying they plan to catch up like Sabi is.

As I've said, low post is irrelevant if you can convey your thought process and rational.

My null on llama is based on the content presented is easy to fake to me but at least the why component is included and it makes sense, so thus null.

As stated, I suck at reading maniac.

And damo's thought process is at least visible and follows typical town structuring based on prior games with him, so he's above a few players in my eyes.

My three scumreads have not voted.

Not as odd as i first blinked. Two are in fact being scumread because of lurking.

- I'm not really sure I get the connection between rdr and kak? Darg's longer post shows that he voted kak first, then disputed a vote on himself, so I don't see how that's construed as protecting kak. I agree that rdr hasn't shown as much conviction as I'd expect though (assuming that's what surfing means).

- Voting sabi right now because I think the way they've been lurking is more alignment-indicative, but I disagree that kak's style of lurking is inherently better - they're clearly preparing posts for the starts/ends of phases, which indicates an unwillingness to actively engage with the thread at all despite rereading. I'm only nulling it because it's kak and he's done this in the past

- darg trying to start more discussion on people who aren't lurking is good. extra townpoints ig. I haven't been impressed with damo or rdr so far but don't really have anything concrete on them yet

- psa: sabi uses they/them pronouns

My thoughts about rdr and kak is that rdr voted ksk early, maybe a bus... but got off when it picked upna little steam. Hard to say though with such little action.

I will ##vote Kak and probably Dargo will say it's a buss.

By the way, there is very little reason to bus in this setup.

Also, I found weird Brad voting Kak and telling that me and Worcej could be scum. Still waiting for him to explain.

I can’t recall a two wagon race so early in the day before. I like it. Both kill candidates need to come out and play. If either/both are town we need you to convince us why you’re town.

Still happy with my vote on Sabi.

Not going to vote the following today: darg, llama, worcej, rdr, Maniac

Brad please expand on your thoughts.

Sabi/Kak/Brad if you are paranoid you oight to claim at this stage (especially Sabi obviously).

However if any of these do claim and it is false I trust the true paranoiac counters.

I agree a bus is unlikely if a player is anywhere near danger but a bus on a one or two vote wagon is possible.

Aye, you would have done that, were you both scum. But it might could be that you did that in the scum chat and sabi had not started to post more, so you yelled at them in here.

Does not sound like you, though, maniac.
