Funny thing is from the setup they can't both be scum.

But it's scummy for DV to see Cephrir's iso and still want to dance with that, and it's scummy for Cephrir to not wait for a longer iso before accepting so it's like a good barrel to shoot at and hope for fish

though I'm sure some things just as interesting will develop in pregame this setup seems kewl

So you disagree with Ceph being scum then? Bitmap? Don't remember your thoughts on those two

i would argue it's actually town for him to want to dance with me despite the fact i'm probably the most suspected slot atm

No, you messed up the story in our PT last time and I don't forget.

Didn't you let it down?

Ok you didn't let it down but you left less than an hour after you made your last post in the PT. So that's still your fault.

Gut says Ceph accepted Deas in the manner he did because he felt pressured about the amount of flak he's taken from the thread (see: him saying that he's the most suspected slot)

You have to accept a certain amount of not-playing-to-wincon in these dances. Dunn is very likely to pair with Maria and Firebringer will pair with Shiro regardless of any reads.

With Cephrir widely scumread wouldn't it have made sense to leave him unpaired?

well I think the only real scum indicative part of any of that was the timing that he accepted but at the same time it's not exactly something that is indicative by itself

I thought his first couple pages were meh too but I think his general demeanor between there and now diminishes that

so I really don't know with him atm

no
you're literally playing the setup wrong
You have to be twice as good as randomly lynching for suicide to be an EV play, due to what Kagami pointed out. We design "balanced" setups at like 40% town EV or whatever so obviously people are not twice as good as random lynching. Correct play is basically never suicide unless the lover PT has the biggest scumslip you've ever seen in your career. So since it's a slot you are unable to lynch from your POV you want it to be town, because you definitely don't want to give lynch proof power roles to scum

And I'm concerned that you are at least halfway cognizant of this dynamic and are just that fearful of death-by-wallflower
