please don't say this. the first game of forum mafia i played someone said this. i came back half a day later to 9 pages of pointless discussion that basically destroyed the game


Thespio is correct that it's better to lynch than NL day1. But I don't like how he brought it up. It was out of the blue and looks like an attempt to declare his own towniness.

Super townie :P Like i said, i really want to get this out of the way where people who are new feel like they dont know enough and arent comfortable with a lynch. My IC Post. Ill be busy today (paying the dmv for plates) so ill try to keep an eye on the game but no promises until tonight. (im in the midwest)

@Thesio - You've given out three TRs (town-reads) so far if I'm reading correctly. Can you please give maybe a sentence or two on each of these explaining why their words and actions make you think they are more likely town than scum?

Sure:
Me- obv town
Loopdan/Skellen- Your clash seemed tvt, as I stated earlier, beyond this the game is a little thin, so its the most town thing I am going on.
Element-I dont think theres anything particularly damning here, seemed genuine in their attempt to spark discussion.

this is where i am at

Yeah I checked out your game history and didn't see any scum games, so just wanted to confirm I didn't miss anything.

Nope, Its been a solid 4 years since I rolled scum, and it was on a college forum. If you want a run down, the last time i was scum I lurked alot, and talked about girls alot. I'm married now so that wont be the case when i roll scum. Unfortunately you will have to go with my recent town games.

I would agree with this if he wouldn't have implied there is more to it with the "Later" in #29. Meanwhile he said it is as you said. Eeerrhh why was he even doing it so ominously in first place then.

@Skellen - The tone wasn't intended to be ominous. It was just my way of making it seem like maybe I had an actual reason to scum-read you for your self-vote. Sometimes that leads to others jumping on the wagon, sometimes it leads to others screaming over and over that they demand an explanation of the unexplained vote, sometimes nothing really happens.

IC POST: EBWOP means Edit By Way Of Post
Because we can't actually edit our posts on this forum (that would lead to some really manipulative stuff by scum).

I agree.


Looks like TvT to me, too. Could also be SvT (not sure about Loopdan).



So this implies you are TRing Thespio. Can you explain why that is? Not saying I disagree, just curious about your thinking.

@MOD can you fix that for me please? The line "Looks like TvT to me, too. Could also be SvT (not sure about Loopdan)." should be inside Munch's post 70.

I fixed it this time, but I prefer to avoid editing player posts (so... no future instances).

Finally got some time to spare.

It's difficult to read Elements at the moment, at least for me, so I can't really see how you are leaning more towards town in his case. Comments here and there some things, but not enough to classify him on town/scum side. Normally I would think it's slightly scummy (I miss a little bit the initiative), however this early there isn't much juicy stuff to work with anyway.

As for you I am struggling with you a little bit. I found your role in the exchange between me and loopdan slightly interesting, since you were kind of "moderating" between us. It would be consistent with your opinion that two townies went against each other instead of the using the moment to team up against a side, which is a positive thing. Of course a scum-you would have known better and could as well used that moment to get in a postive standing with two active townies. By feeling I am rather leaning towards the former. I was a bit wary when you put all the active players on the town side while I wouldn't even find it possible to say much about the others, as you can see in my comment about Elements, so that only the inactives are left for scum. A bit a too certain statement for this early. Leaning slightly towards town, but here and there are some things that remind me to keep an eye on you.

I see. So basically a bait. That's an answer that I actually like, it kind of fits into the impression that I have of you after our little conservation yesterday. Which is a good thing.

Kind of wish there would have been more from the others.

Particularly munchmellow, I kind of liked that she sought the conversation with muh with elaborating about the double bussing idea.

PvtUrist's entry not so good on the other side as it was just commenting on "fillerish" posts from spio.

@Skellen - Have you played mafia on other sites? You seem more experienced than a typical first time player here.
