I am the IC and you're free to ask me questions.
- I won't lie to gain advantage over you (even if I did, an SE could easily call me out).
- Don't expect me to be god. I won't be the town that will find scum in less than 10 pages nor the scum that will fool you all.
- Some things I say are opinions, doesn't mean they're correct.
- I am still a standard player. I'll play for my win condition.
Stands for Random Voting Stage.
You have few to no posts to analyse, so, unless you're scum, you have no information to solve the game. So you're free to make joke votes, random votes or some weird discussions. Though, try to push something out of it. This phase shouldn't last more than 2 real life days, otherwise there's something wrong going there.L-# and Hammer
A lynch is reached as soon someone gets over half the votes.
L-# stands for # votes to reach that lynch. L-1 means that player is one vote away from getting lynched.
Hammer is the vote that seals the lynch.
The reason we don't lynch too early in the game is to gather more information. We have 2 weeks of discussion and by lynching too early, you deny information to the town and can possibly mislynch a town PR. You should always call L-1 (preferably in bold in a new line) when you put someone one vote away from being lynched. If you see that, don't put another vote on them before declaring intent, there are some exceptions though. Doing that before declaring intent isn't scummy, but anti-town, which might lead to you being policy lynched.

This is the point of the game where town can't lynch another town (Mislynch and Lose) or they have to lynch scum (Lynch (scum) or Lose). It's worth being more cautious here as scum can coordinate a quickhammer on a wagon if someone misvotes, I recommend using FoS (Finger of Suspicion).
TIP: If you see a wagon at L-1 during this stage and you're town, you can say "not hammering" as scum would usually quickhammer a town wagon. If you're scum and you know there's no way you can lose during the night, you can just quickhammer.
When it's MyLo/LyLo:
6 players alive with no scum dead (MyLo)
5 players alive with no scum dead (LyLo)
4 players alive with one scum dead (MyLo)
3 players alive with one scum dead (LyLo)When to claim
Sometimes claiming might not be ideal. If you're a PR, you'll most likely be nightkilled/roleblocked (if there's one) next night. If you're a VT, you'll help scum narrow down the list of PRs.
There are some situations where you should claim:
- When you're at L-1 and someone declares intent.
- When you got an incriminating result (or you feel you got).
- When you feel there's no reason to not claim anymore.
- When town agrees on a massclaim.

I might be missing something, but you can always ask me.
I might misgender you, if I do, it's probably because your avatar looks girly.
