Yes, I try to view actions from your perspective not mine. I've struggled to see your actions as coming from you as town, yet I think I may see them now. I'm okay at least risking a Doctor Drew l-1.

You wanna explain that?

I have been adamant about about Ranger being scum, and have gone back and forth on you being scum.

And if I was scum why would I back off Ranger at this point in the day? Only would make sense in a world we are both scum(and spoiler, that is impossible).

And you aren't even calling her town lol......but for some reason now you are just fine letting her do her thing? You feel safe since she isn't calling you scum anymore?

Interesting.

The implication here is Black is saying the current Drew wagon has two scum on it still, despite the names not aligning. The third Doctor Drew voter is Naerys, not T-Bone.

This implies Black is calling the scumteam {Ranger, davesaz}.

That matches none of Black's actions.

Perhaps you'll take note of this blatant cognitive dissonance tomorrow.

Naerys is far from the player most guilty of not following through on their actions.

I believe that falls to you.

You've been pushing T-Bone all day.

You're leaving him as the hammer vote.

Your main suspect has the hammer power and you have said nothing about it.

It would perhaps be a lot less miserable if you engaged me without assuming I'm scum, looked at my analysis, and added your own without the preexisting biases.

I believe Black has notably demonstrated a severe contradiction which you should be taking interest in. She had previously shown no scumread on me. She indicated if the wagons were Drew v Ranger with the Drew voters as {Ranger, davesaz, T-Bone} she would vote Ranger because both scum would be on Drew, but her pushes have been on T-Bone with a small side of davesaz. She made no mention of me, except when engaging me on my reads, and the entire time she did, she was treating me as town.

Her sudden vote in that light is rather suspect, particularly as it gives the hammer to her greatest suspect.

Ranger. I think both scum would be on the Drew wagon here
In post 2436, Black wrote:Ranger if I were scum I would have already hammered you here
This has been the majority of Black's content today. She's been primarily focused on T-Bone as scum, yet left T-Bone with the hammering vote wordlessly. She has been interacting with me and pointed out a willingness to vote me, yet always secondary to her actions overall. Her wordless tie of the L-1 wagons doesn't match her previous statements because she has stated she likes davesaz's content, so he wouldn't be the scum voting Doctor Drew, yet she townreads Naerys so Naerys wouldn't be the scum voting Doctor Drew either.

She doesn't believe Naerys is scum voting Doctor Drew, nor davesaz is scum voting Doctor Drew.

Yes, that's my point.

Black said in that scenario, there's two scum on Doctor Drew.

Yet Black's actions don't match the worldview from there.

Black believed {T-Bone, davesaz, Ranger} would have two scum.

Black has said she sees davesaz favorably today.
Black has said she sees Naerys as town.
Black's strongest scumread is T-Bone, who she handed deciding hammering power to.

Her statements don't match her actions.

In post 2481, T-Bone wrote:Drew changing his vote as a response to Naerys is normal. I guess STD's change of vote is immaterial to the situation. Or is it?
I am questioning everything including you right now.

I agree, Drew voting Naerys is normal regardless of his alignment. It's a small sign Drew's potentially down, perhaps the first in the game. However, the overall picture for him still suggests scum. He lacks his bite and the lack of interest in his slot the entire game is suspect. Everyone stated they could vote him; I thought people weren't going to follow through yet apparently they did, so now that's a concern.

I think Naerys's swap was probably still town, although I'm not sure. There's concern it was a strategic swap because Drewtown here would ensure a scum win tomorrow, although overall I think I lean towards this being paranoia and Naerys being town. She may be my second-strongest townread, behind davesaz now.

You seem oddly passive right now since you are not under pressure, and while you're providing some reasonable commentary, you're not giving any more definitive analysis and concrete conclusions. You've avoided taking sides and voting, despite having a preference to suspect Doctor Drew. I think I still lean town, but I'm worried the masons game-long suspicion of you may have merit, so I'm not as confident as I was.

Save The Dragons is my main focus here, as I need to figure out his mindset. If I can see his thoughts as town, he is likely still town, yet I'm struggling to understand his view.

Overall, current thoughts;
{davesaz}
{Naerys}
{T-Bone}
{Save the Dragons, Black}
{Doctor Drew}

Notably the bottom tiers aren't scumreads, just least town rn.
I'm glad you're questioning me I guess but it's a little late for that.

My passiveness as you call it is just because I have a lower volume of posts today due to out of game stuffs. I was asking questions as recently as last night to try and determine what I want.

I disagree about not being under pressure as the latest vote count would suggest otherwise I am under immense pressure to hammer the right player and it's possible I'm in a situation where I am choosing between two town. So don't start with me. I think it's been clear from the start of the day that getting my vote correct is important to me so much that I haven't cast it yet and there are 5 hours left.
