The only other sort of hit I had was PLOT, and I'm too uncertain about that to be able to make any sort of case for it.

I definitely don't see FORK as a stretch. I see the connection as "shared purpose".

Now that I think of it, it's not *that* different from the TIE connection. Shared purpose, just from a different perspective. But, again, HORN.

What's killing me is trying to judge lilith's propensity for sewing with insufficient information. My gut says "no", but I don't know if I can trust it here.

Evidence I can think of to support my gut: lilith's signature. She links to personal finance, gardening, and skincare. Trawling through those threads would be against the spirit of the rules, so I won't - but it does tell me she actively expresses her interests outside of Mafia here, and that sewing probably isn't one of her top three interests.

That's certainly not a smoking gun by any stretch, but still. It's something, I guess?

My idea for PLOT was something along the lines of ... plotting a graph, I guess? That sort of plot. I could envision using tacks on a graph to express points.

It's a fuzzy, weak connection, IMO. I'd pick either FORK or COTTON over it any day.

I'm sorry if me deferring to you so often is annoying but my confidence level is low until I get more familiar with the game

I think I'd be ok with Fork

Trust me, I'm going through the same things you are. This game can bite people in unexpected ways so many times. Both from the "wait, you can do what with cotton?" perspective and from the "how can anybody not know about sewing?" perspective. :)

Moscow, Code, Embassy?

Moscow pretty self explanatory

I think code could have been part of both Fascist as a system of belief like it is here with comrade as well as part of Goodall about the systems of behaviours that chimpanzees have?

Then Embassy because again cold war USSR spyish, plus we can at least agree its neutral at worst

I agree with Moscow.

I am not sure on what the other guesses can be for comrade and as for fascist I think embassy was the 4th word and I would guess that too.

biancospino can weigh in. She might as well guess moscow once she does and either embassy or code if she feels like they are the next best thing cause that would be breaking Adorable and mines tie.

MOSCOW


The others make sense but I'd like to slow down a bit.
If HEM wanted to clue embassy because of the ussr, they may as well have just said RUSSIA or something, unless CODE specifically relates to comrade; embassies are just things that states have, not really specifically tied to fascism or communism.

Can HORN be a Goodall word? I don't see it.
For if it isn't, then we are still missing
two
Goodall words, and those can't be embassy/code right?

My entire depth of Jane Goodall knowledge has already been stated in thread and mostly comes from the simpsons episode that had a fake version of her using chimpanzaees to mine diamonds so I don't have a lot more insight on Goodall. Africa was blue and africa has a horn. Possibly the horn of africa is where she was. It's a shot in ye old dark.

We are missing 2 goodall words, 1 fash word and 2 comrade words.

Meaning one is likely tagging all three which I think must be Code which would be my next guess. From there we are looking at a Goodall and Comrade word and embassy seems fine, she would have been a foreign high profile worker maybe something happened at an embassy. Horn I can see with goodall but it simply must be crossed matched still and I cant justify it with anything else.

I think the 3 words for comrade are also part of the words for fascist and goodall. For fascist we had to guess 4 words, goodall we had to guess 3 words, all together we need to make 8 guesses.

Yes other than Moscow which I think stands alone my theory was we have one word that relates to all three clues (Code) and a second word that relates to both Comrade and Goodall (Embassy)
