Usually the shit part about lim-lo is that no Town player trusts anyone else to talk things out with and that more often than not leads to miseliminations because scum just need one Town player to vote wrong to guarantee a win. Scum have a huge advantage in lim-lo.

In this case we have a confirmed Town player alive so there is someone we know is telling the truth and actually feels the way they are saying they feel. That player keeping their cards close to their chest wastes the small advantage of having a trustworthy voice still in the game.

I suppose but I never I wasn't going to reveal my thoughts ever (or I never meant to imply this)

I want as much undeclared thoughts as possible before I give mine because if I give a name all scum has to do is stroke my ego and pick that name and if I'm wrong then they just win. I suppose I could be right from the jump but I don't feel super comfortable believing that yet

i just spent my morning trying to figure out if StD forgetting his night action was a cover ploy because he needed to use another part of his night action that night to get off the firebagel frame job + whatever else

dismissed this because
- i have a very hard time imagining all the interactions between marci and StD and Dunnstral and StD as scum theatre
- marci's role PM specifically mentions that scum gets a benefit when she, specifically is alive past a certain point. the neighborhood generically referred to scum being in the neighborhood from what i can tell. this would imply that marci was the only scum in the neighborhood.
- if StD needed an explanation for not using his night action that night he probably would've just claimed he vended to a dead person or something rather than the elaborate "idk what happened but im upset"

so anyway if people had any paranoia i saved you the work and stres

I guess
if I'm forced to choose actually i guess I would amend this to cakez > oblivion even though I still don't really think oblivion is scum

but like if we flipped cakez and the game didn't end i would kill oblivion of the remaining slots

I didn't forget technically. I specifically did it and probably previewed it and forgot to send it

I looked at my phone after the night ended and it had the subject including the night and shell game as a possible subject I could select

hey please answer the question i asked to everyone (that spiffeh quoted in a previous post pinging you). im not sure how much of the entire game you've read though

if you can, can you also walk me through some of your reads this game

i don't need a huge essay, just like "d1 i thought x was scummy because they were doing y, and i thought z was townie because they seemed town" or something would be nice.

I wonder how many prod dodges Oblivion can fit into that length of time

I should be here in about 48 hours to do things which should leave us plenty of time to spare

Oh, yeah sure.

It thinks STD needs to be town still, obviously so he is at the back.

So then...

Spiffeh at top because it asked specifically yesterday whether the claim could ahve any reason why it was wrong unless Spiffeh was faking and was told it was a very very edge case. It wanted to defend Firebagel more, but 1) it is so so super checked out and 2) it was facing a guilty from players who were morre invested than it. So it shruged and accepted it was wrong. So Spiffeh is scum almost always for it.

But with Spiffeh's provable role that would indicate 2 scum remaining so for a second scum it's between Dann and Cakez?

Yesterday it said Cakez but it actually thinks it is more likely that it is Dann. Cakez feels like he has been setup for it to believe that. It genuinely thinks it is alive and never pushed for elimination because it is the game losing vote where it will just do... whatever the majority tells it.

So.. fuck it. Spiffeh/Dann is its final solve.

It checked back like, 3 times after it posted and no one said anything. It even checked before it went to sleep and still nothing. Apologies for being a human being who needs sleep.

It... Early game it had it all and late game not as much as it would like. It read yesterday though. It is sad that the masons died because they were helping it feel invested =/
