he was kind of clueless about the game state. I was not lying about that :3

Skittter’s disputing Isis’ point about scum always trying to play logically. Sometimes they do but more often then not they don’t. That’s how you catch them’. Like scum!Titus saying that scum bussed Shelley then calling DGB who was late on the wagon, “locktown” and Flea who was early obvtown. I could possibly be mixing this up with Fred though.

I meant “lockSCUM”. That’s a great way to catch scum!Titus because she contradicts herself a lot as scum where as she’s extremely consistent as town.

ok tbh i wasn't in or involved in the game you're referencing and i'm not super sure what point you're making wrt that game

what i was saying with isis and ydrasse is that in ydrasse's original post, i don't see her starting out with logic and then moving to gut; it looks entirely like a gut-based read to me
like i'm not sure that the analysis isis is tryign to make actually matches the post ydrasse made ...

yes, that is what I meant. he also called out to me to soul townread him, albeit in a smaller way.

i am starting to feel like I might read Pooky okay and isis is probably much better, so it seems odd for scum!Pooky to engrain it in everyone's' minds that we should sheep Isis' evaluation of him

I got burnt on this reasoning before in silent star 1 actually when reading lilith -- she was citing someone the way Pooky is citing Isis as a good player to read her, think. but I still lean towards it and also scum!Pooky tries to take control of the game which i havent noticed

scum gives off "slight townpings" a lot! I actually agree since that's like, their job.

probably a specifically weak kind of townping though, like their posts come across as towny but maybe it's hard to pinpoint why and if you dig deeper there isn't anything solidly town, and it turns out that they've just been putting in a little extra "i'm so towny" into it

My town atm is (Isis/Pooky/Ydrasse/Infinity) with a maybe on MT. Everyone else I need more on than I've got.


Why? What was weird about them? There are a lot of things that are very similar here to that game but not everything. I was totally lost in that game (in the beginning anyway) and being V/LA for almost a week didn’t help matters.


Your early stuff was a lot more focused. Here your style is a lot more jokey/floppy rather than laser foucsed on content.

Because in most games I've played recently scum are the people who light townping early on, not the people you hard scumread. The null-town-i-guess zone doesn't get voted out day 1.

Why though? Like imo it's the opposite, if scum did pregame choices, it's more likely that jessie is scum


Why? I’m currently nullreading them. I feel the most confident on MT, Isis and Ydrasee and probably Skitter.


@Dunn- hm, how did you have more of an issue with my reads being 'consensusy' but not Gloria's?
@Gloria - got any hot take reads? Your read change was basically a swap from Infinity (who some people including Pooky had moved to scum on) over to Ydrasse- and all of these reads are pretty uncontroversial TRs over the game.
