DisclaimersAll tiers are not sorted within the tier.
Reads come with no warranty against later-cycle paranoia.
This reads list is known to the state of California to cause cancer.



Tier "Would divert the trolley away from them into 100 innocent children instead"


CrabsWe got to locktowning these nerds before they even signaled to us, their play was just so town from the getgo. spayhalf was hella impressed by the depth and layering of the crumb. Even down to "masons without a PT", which had to be intentional...didn't it??


BingleNormally weird hookups give you Crabs, but in this case, Crabs gave us a Bingle.


Tier "Slightly Less Green to Deny Spiffeh"


SpiffehAbsolutely shunned day one and yet kept on keeping on and stayed motivated and trusting we'd find him eventually, that's townmouse. Our turning on a dime about that one post could have used a little rethink.

Cat Scratch FeverEarly TR, current TR. Lots of mindmeld and such. If there's a deepwolf in my townreads, this or firebagel is it. spayhalf has liked every single post and will be horrified if she’s scum.

LukewarmEarly stuff and continued stubbornness in his super bullheaded town way. Inflexible to a fault. Also spayhalf is sad to see we're so low in his townreads at this point.

MarcistarInventor hood player. we still don't think the drippy leaky faucet comes from traitor-marci instead of town marci. She comes across very sure about her strong reads. She's posted a LOT about what’s going on in the hood and hasn’t been contradicted by other hood players.

Shello and goodbyethey made the precisely right claim to invalidate the guilty we had on them, including the parts they couldn’t know mattered. The reaction to our guilty felt very town.

wolfbaeWe like wolfbae’s play. And yet we know peta can be this smooth as scum. We wouldn't rethink this read unless the players we're actively scumreading in the hood both flip town.


Tier "Out of our POE for now but probably one snuck in"


Save The DragonsHood player. I [WE ~spayhalf] are pretty sure STD is just incapable of townreading me [US ~spay] ever so I'm [WE'RE] not really putting any weight to his read of us. Unlikely to be the scum in the hood due to both visible and invisible-but-described posts in and out of the hood. We're townreading him, but spayhalf is not sure the read will hold up long term.

firebagelThis was an early strong townread, but is falling because it's mostly just vibes. The feud with STD feels like a way to appear active but not drive anything forward. Doesn't appear to actively care to convince or engage others on the read so much as go back and forth with STD himself. Like, you never convince a player to admit being scum, and that player isn’t your audience anyway. The gypyx thing had a really strong "AH HA" pounce vibe, and we're townreading that.

OblivionWe liked its early body of work. It is currently out apparently sick? It's falling down the list not due to actions of its own but due to the town strength of other reads. Other players are exiting the POE for their play over the course of the game.

Dunnstralhe’s faded a lot since early/mid day 1. more of an iffy townlean at this point than above the first line town. This read is starting to firm back up a little for spayhalf based on recent posts.

PenguinPowerFor spayhalf, he’s coming across warmer, jokes more, and feels a little more fluid than he did as scum in Star Trek uPick. Neuterhalf remains unimpressed



Tier "In the POE, the Edgar Allen POE"


Dannflorspayhalf hasn't done the meta review/update she sort of want to do. A few recent posts struck her as more towny. Neuterhalf finds his posting unmemorable.

SirCakezRecent posting is better but in no way is cakez out of his scum range. Despite some thread sentiments otherwise, not a solid townread. In the POE

Gypyxseems lost or disconnected in some ways. Doesn’t seem to have much passion about her reads. She also seems to be unwilling to operate outside of the lanes as Peta noted.


Tier "Mama bought a white dress and she needs a red dress"


experienceA slot that is simultaneously a good odds of flipping mafia AND also positionally gives a lot of data about other players running around.

sunflowerScum if experience is not. Entire body of work feels off, and we'll be very happy to just write off as town if EXP flips scum and not worry about having to untunnel ourselves naturally if we're wrong.

firebringerTwo minor pluses: forgetting about his night action, and getting extremely pissed off at spayhalf misunderstanding where he was coming from in his post about Pooky's death. Maybe that should be enough to move him up one tier, but we're not feeling it.

We are satisfied out of what the day has brought, let's move on and see if more flips change anything. See you all in the dead thread.

Mafia: please shoot us over the masons and cops, we're definitely not spent and are a scary PR (and this is definitely not a double bluff, is it?)

Who did Experience claim to target with their cop shot? Marci?

The role PM says masons, but the actual role is best friend neighbors.

Best friend is a role where the two players don't share a PT but are informed of each other's alignment. It's obscure, but it is the role we actually have.
