Okay guys, this my 4th game on MS, and my 4th scum draw. At some point, people are going to develop a "lynch boring" policy...

Thank smeg for daytalk, though.

This is my second game as scum, currently playing my first game as scum so I still have no idea how to play this faction.

As a rule, do not discuss ongoing games. This rule matters even inside of private threads like these. This includes something as seemingly minor as "I am scum in another current game."

I don't know about you, but I find playing scum to be a pretty personal thing. Like, I've been mildly successful so far, but what I've done might not work for you.

Here's what I've learned so far:

1) Don't panic. We're naturally going to see the flaws in our own and our teammate's play because we know we're scum. Even if a townie hits the nail on the head, it may just be a lucky guess, or they may be ignored, discredited, etc. Also, most townies don't properly research past days' content. So once it's buried, it usually stays buried.
2) Pretending to be town doesn't mean doing what you'd do as town. Your lies should be as truthful as possible so you don't get cornered, but you've still gotta mislead.
3) Misdirect your associations. Find a town to softly buddy. When you need to distance from scum team, form your case so that it looks like you mean it, but has big enough flaws for some townie to pick apart on both your behalf.
4) CYA. Fact check the thread in general, and your own ISO before you do or say something risky. That way, the few who might dig through ISOs can't blindside you.

In post 7, boring wrote:so... any news from Slandaar?

I've reached out to the list mod, asking him what the earliest time is that I could appropriately replace the slot. (This is my first game modding on site, and I wanted to make sure there isn't a standard I'm supposed to abide by when it comes to replacing a slot who never responded to their role PM). Assuming I get no response (from either of them), I'll replace Slandaar 48 hours from the time role PMs went out. I have a replacement lined up, so either way, someone will be in that slot soon enough.

Thank you!

Also, is it possible for me to conduct the NK and use Neapolitan? Or am I restricted to choosing between them.

You may perform both actions in the same night.

I know you two aren't super fond of playing scum, but let's try to get through Day 1 with little or no scuff marks. Then if we need to bus to place one or two of us to boost our town cred, we can without being accused of bussing.

I think we have to kill eagerSnake tonight. A confirmed town is pointless Day1, but Day2 and beyond are a different story.

It's been tough trying to get the heat off me but yeah I think Snake and Grendal are good targets for the night kill.

I think you did a good job. That's the benefit of early heat: they'll have gotten over you before anyone's really comfortable with the idea of going through with a lynch. After all, what can be more boring than sitting on the same scum read for two weeks?

Hey there,

I'm pretty busy this weekend so I might not be much better than Slandaar until Sunday, but I'll do what I can. Just a heads up on my style as scum: I don't really like to take the lead, instead I prefer angling for a good position. In particular, I do not like to be the one bussing ever.

Still need to catch up on things (Only up to page 12) but I'll likely unvote boring next post, in the event I do keep it I will keep the arguments relatively ineloquent as to be genuine but unconvincing so as to keep them on the path to a mislynch.

Not a problem I'm excited to play, let's rock and roll. I think Zoronos/nn30 are going to be borderline unlynchable but the rest of the game seems vulnerable. I'm probably just going to sit on my implosion vote for the remainder of the day and spin accordingly.

@LUV just a heads up that you should expect me to post this at some point, not today but in future days:

In post 488, Prism wrote:In the meantime I'm going to VOTE: boring whose #196 left me wondering if she was trying to find inconsistencies or trying to find scum.
In post 522, Lil Uzi Vert wrote:I don't know how to put my feelings about her [boring] into the words but I can't shake this vibe from her. I think it's mainly her vote on Zoro, which read more to me as nitpicking about inconsistencies rather than looking for scum.
In post 522, Lil Uzi Vert wrote:Prism - Just subbed in. Nothing to go off of.
How is it that, as town, you read someone's first post and agree with it to the point of borderline plagiarism, then consider that "nothing to go off of?

The wording will likely change depending on context but you get the gist. It doesn't appear anyone else noticed it so you likely won't have to worry about it for awhile. I think everyone's doing a good job so far and that we're on track.

I was a little shocked no one said anything either. But meh, there are a lot of egos in this game. Big egos are vulnerable to buddying.

I'd like to ride my "Gamma's protector" act a little further. He really is lynchbait, but he's got an uncanny knack for making it to MYLO/LYLO. So I can either bitch about his wagon and look credible when he flips. or have a buddy when things get tighter.

I do have a consistent issue with my scum play, though. People gut-read me as scum, and then rationalize their way out of it with my content. It seems like most people here are newish, so they'll try to appear rational as much as possible, but if we get too many people content to follow their gut remaining toward the end, I'm gonna have to be bussed.

I'll try to buddy a "logical" player as we go, though.

Prism and LUV, how are you at LYLO as scum? We may need a hero.

I haven't played forum mafia in approximately 5 years now so I can't really know how well my style translates.

I'm fine in whatever stage it's just not my preferred.
