jim waiting could also be buying time, asking ohx to claim PR and hoping town loses confidence, that's true. both are good lynches imo, the only difference is my gut is telling me to vote muh, so i am going for him.

I am torn too. I am also leaning muh but I thought the rest were leaning jim. Anyway there's still some co-ordination to do, I'm fine with either one.

I guess today im fine with a muh lynch. I'll post my case this weekend. Sorry i havent been posting, i have been really busy these couple of days, but i'll make time for mafia this weekend.
Also, i think i'll retract from my original readslist statement, because i dont think its no longer necessary. There are 2 confirmed town, 2 people i dont suspect and 2 people i do. Not much point stating that in longer and less understandable terms. I'll stick with giving a thorough rundown of muh's iso this saturday hopefully.

I think i'll give Jim more time, in any case, because even though he has been in the shadows for most of the time, so has muh, and he should be the one sticking out like mud with him being SE and whatnot. And no matter what, i believe he made a positive impact on the outcome of yesterdays lynch and proceedings. Whereas for muh... Lets not spoil ourselves with trailers, yes?

Also not voting because i want to place a dramatic one after my case. So thats why

Alright upon reread I think I do agree that dong & child are the two we probably shouldn’t lynch ever (along with me and abyssal)

Whoever is in lylo (if lylo happens) please do a reread of the other two slots before voting
I still think muh is townier than Jim but I’ll vote either
Interested to hear more from empire

I don't understand this case. I was trying to follow what I thought to be an appropriate protocol, considering the circumstances. The town had been wagon jumping up until the final hours before the deadline. Considering that the town needed to lynch someone, I analysed the cases against Okx and stated my intent to hammer. This, again, was literally hours before the deadline. Not knowing how much time there would be between the final vote and the thread being locked, I picked the 30 minute deadline to both give players more time to say anything they needed to, but to also make sure that the lynch was achieved without any timing snafus. I know that muh had also stated an intent to hammer, but the only person I can trust to cast a vote is myself. Also, if anyone else had decided to unvote in that time, my intent had already been stated.

It was an assumption. How do I know if you would hammer?

I am leaning muh316 though, but if he is town surely it's you.

VOTE: muh316

I still think it’s VOTE: Jim
His recent read list doesn’t make sense - me and Abyssal should be at the top of anyone’s reads
dongempire is actually a slight possibility here
I now think Child is less likely to be scum than dong

I don't think scum would try to do this lol. He probably legit doesn't understand the setup, as town he didn't have reason to. Could still be scum playing dumb idk.

It's taken me a while to think through and understand certain aspects of the last few pages. Here's a list of things I've been considering:

- There is only one scum left in this group.
- Depending on who I believe to be scum means that I have to believe everyone else is not scum.
- I believe that the remaining scum is/was on pretty much all of the wagons so far, which is Lamees and Irrelephant.
- There were a lot of PR claims, and it's taken me a while to process what happened vs what makes sense.
- Based on the two flips we now know, I believe there is a Tracker in this group.
- I do not like Lamees' post #332, after the hammer vote and literally minutes before the thread is locked for N1:
In post 332, Lamees wrote:Ceejay jail me tonight please and thanks.
- If Lamees is not a PR, why would she ask to be jailed?
- Also, does whoever Ceejay picked to jail N1 remain jailed/barred from night action, even though Ceejay was killed?
- If I choose to believe that Lamees is scum, then I have to believe that Irrelephant is town and tracker.
- If I believe that Lamees is scum, then I have to believe that Irrelephant received a null read on Abyssal.

Knowing the order of how night actions play out will help to better understand/solidify the possible situations that could have played out N1.
For now, I'm going to leave my vote on Lamees.

Since no one else has claimed tracker, I have to be the tracker (the jailkeeper and Rolecop flips confirm that there has to be a tracker)
Since I am the tracker, I can say with certainty that Abyssal did not do the nightkill, and since there’s only one mafia and the nightkill happened, that makes Abyssal confirmed town.
Why does the fact that Lamees was on every wagon cause you to scumread her? I don’t see why that’s scummy (indeed, i did the same, and i am confirmed to be a townie)

I personally think that dong is more townie than child here, he started the push on rolecop. If he was scum he could've not said a word and he would be fine.

I was super strong scum reading the two of you since the game began. Since only one of you can be scum at this point, I started considering more recent events surrounding the D1 lynch, N1, and D2.


Also, for real....can anyone confirm the order of night actions, and which actions take precedence over others?

Each Newbie Game will be given a setup that incorporates one mafia role from the top of a column, and then two town roles from a row below the selected mafia role. The remaining six roles will be filled in by one mafia goon and five vanilla townies appropriately, to create a 2-mafia and 7-town setup.

All Newbie games use the Natural Action Resolution system for determining Night action effects. Mafia Roleblocker action takes precedence over a Town Jailkeeper action should that apply.

Mafia have access to their Private Topic at all times.

Lamees could be town. But based on her behavior and actions (one of which was being on every wagon), I believe her to be the most likely scum. Even without wagon jumping, I'm still very skeptical about her asking to be jailed minutes before the paged locked up. I don't understand how that would benefit the town, especially since the JK had a 50% chance of getting lynched anyway. To me, it looks like possible misdirection, but I still can't figure it out...
Also, upon re-read the end of D1, I saw that you predicted the scum Rolecop based on your role before Okx even flipped. I 100% believe you now. Sorry.

And thank you for pointing out the night action rules...somehow I overlooked that line when I re-read the intro.

I think dong could be Mafia. Child is town in my books unless he slips up pretty bad and gets caught for bussing.

In post 378, Irrelephant11 wrote:Alright upon reread I think I do agree that dong & child are the two we probably shouldn’t lynch ever (along with me and abyssal)


So is Lamees on your scumlist then?

Anyway, I've stated my opinion on Lamees' play for D2 and it's been pretty scummy to me. Pushing for early lynches on possible town players and ending the day early isn't beneficial to town. If we can drag out the day it's better since we can see some more scum slip-ups.

VOTE: Lamees

As for the votes against me. The accusations against me seem to be purely process of elimination and I get that. We have 2 confirmed town players out of 7. Child and Dong both seem towny at this point for being early adopters on the scum wagon. That leaves me, Jim, and Lamees. I still don't want to take Dong out of the question. ScumDong could have easily predicted an Okx lynch and wanted to jump on the scum wagon early. Therefore, I think the town should reconsider and take time to figure out who the last scum actually is. If we were able to figure this out on D1 based off zero information, D2 we should also take the same approach rather than rushing to end-game.

Well technically I'm not an SE, I just replaced the SE slot. This is my 3rd newbie game since 2012 and I was very young back when I used to play. That's why I'm doing the whole 3 newbie game circuit before I move onto normal games because I've forgotten so much.

There was no guarantee that you were going to hammer. Which is why as soon as I came online I saw we had pushed a claim and I looked for a counterclaim to hammer.

If you were in that situation what would you have done? The only way to know if he was lying was to find a counterclaim.

@jim, jailer had way more than a 50% chance of getting killed. They wouldn't target tracker in case the jailer decided to protect the tracker and block their kill.
Having a jailer alive is bad for scum because it can shut down a night kill.
Also you're correct, I did ask to be jailed for a case of possible misdirection, but for scum, not town.

@muh what's your read on jim?

okx was my highest scumread, i would lynch him regardless. his responses to the push were bad too, in my opinion. im assuming you didnt scumread okx as heavily though, but at the end of a day a bad lynch gives more info than a no lynch, so i would probably still hammer anyway. asking for CC's shouldnt matter as much given the fact that town can roll VT.

lets say no one responded to you asking for CC's, would you have not hammered and let a no-lynch occur?
