To be honest, I don't get it either. I'd love an explanation.

Pops is especially good at jury management. She’s not always the best Town player, she’s not always the best scum player, but in a lot of the games I’ve played with her recently, she is hands down one of the most likeable, least suspicious players in the game regardless of her alignment. She’s brilliant at managing the conversation to benefit herself and her reads while not rubbing anyone the wrong way.

I admit, the silver tongue motif is low impact, but as I think about it more, it works for her.

“Jury management” isn’t just a Survivor term, though that did popularize it. In a Mafia game, everyone is effectively the jury at all times.

I'm sorry but I don't think the title works.
Maybe I can think of something which would at a later time or more likely we, as in, someone in the community will, but for now I'm not going forward with it.

Eh. I don't think calling pops a politician is particularly complimentary and it's a title that could age incredibly poorly.

But she's boss. I was wondering how the gendered term would play out and thought

Ammad Speaker could replace.

Loquarius? Blend of loquacious and Aquarius.

Loquacious means talks a lot. (Word smiths talk a lot right?)
Aquarius because of the personality traits

Yeah, but even assuming her beliefs align perfectly with the current speaker, which is not something I care to investigate, AND pops is pro politicians in general, what happens if the next Speaker is an entirely different person?

I just personally feel that any title tied to a real life position for which the connotations could (and frequently do) rapidly swing around is at best risky. People who feel like Pelosi is a favorable comparison would not necessarily feel the same about Gingrich, for example.

PEdit: I kinda like that one, tbh.

Diplomatically Beautiful

I think “beautiful” is Pops’ favourite word.
Thing with Nancy is we just need to tread carefully because if you slip up around her as scum she notices and will tear your spine out and slap you to death with it.

Still haven't seen anything convincing about pops titles yet.
Not going to shut them down obv, but this hasn't seemed very productive to me thusfar.

Persuasively Beautiful. I really wouldn’t describe Pops as “agressive” but yeah amusing, none the less.
