ok, this is a good start so i'll bite

is it weird for the worst in particular to be absent? or are you just picking from the list of lurkers at random? because there's like 5 or 6 people who haven't posted

legit question; I don't know anyone's meta as I think I previously mentioned
umm... you do know you cant kill ghosts, right? We're sorta incorporeal and all. I was just lowering my hp because I didn't want to be rude. sorry... I just made this more awkward... pretend you beat me... oooooooo

Hey there, i am moving. Not moving, as you might expect, from some far-flung country, but from one of the largest cities (by land area) in the United States to a suburb of that same city.

Hypo Innocent zor. Is that right? We're all supposed to do this, right?

I'm not liking PF's engagement with the strats so far, but that's about the only "read" I have, less than three pages in.

oh, the thread's only been open for like 5 hours; somehow it feels like it's been longer than that because I have no sense of time ever

so yeah I don't think there's anything in particular to be gleaned from someone not posting yet and I'd even go so far as to rescind my label of 'lurkers' on the people who haven't come around yet. People probably have work n shit. except me, bcuz im' a degenerate

also yeah, riffing off of privateI's post, my read on PF is uh... confused

I feel like the first post or two was really towny and then everything after that has been increasingly sus to the point of it horseshoeing back around to "wait no maybe they're town trying to catch scum going along with an anti-town plan??????"

and then I sat here fors everal minutes trying to decide if such a confused read was even worth posting

and then I thought about how this post is way too long to conform to my hoopla-assigned gimmick and maybe I should break it up into smaller chunks

and then I decided I've probably spammed y'all enough as it is press submit apologize later yolo

The worst is fairly active in general so I would expect him to be around by now to try to get something in in case the day ends early but maybe he's busy

In post 22, PokerFace wrote:well Untrod Tripod was the only pre-in so they wanted this game badly. I didn't find out about the game until end of signups. Did Shea advertize it elsewhere besides his signature?

my best guess would be someone that played with Untrod Tripod but he has been here since 2003 so that narrows little down. Perhaps it was a skittle given the signup thread banter

incidentally you should probably stop aggressively townposting because you don't need to spew your alignment.

brass almost certainly scum

My first game in years on this site. I can count on one hand the number of people I recognize in the game.

I'll be honest. I thought the thread was going be locked by now too.

i played w/ you once


I think I either played with toogeloo or we talked before. iirc we both learned mafia on gamefaqs waaaaaay back forever ago?

I was bad at it then and I continue to be bad at it now, but it's fun and Among Us hasn't been scratching the itch properly so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

i played on gamefaqs once or twice waaay back in the day lol

Yep, I somewhat recall we had that in common es. I played on Board 8 GameFaqs mafia before I even started here. For reference, I am BakusaiTenketsu, though I haven't done GFs mafia in years.

is the mafia theory consensus on this site still that freely giving out your town reads == more harm than good?

And if Bob is not cop and they die before giving a planned inspection of Jake, we know who should be involved in the next killing by either being the shooter or the target


also Let's say Bob is a real cop. Bob thinks Jake is scum. Jake is town. Bob dies at night. Jake should either be target or killer next day. Yay there could be framing but still gives us something since we can always learn jake is a day vig that kills whoever is most scummy or second most scummy if jake is most scummy

I basically saying we used plans of scummiest being killed by next scummies to get reads on people combined with this idea. See dynamite mafia for more on scummiest killing next scummiest.

I still think there is value in some of my idea but if no one is down with it then I won't push it
