The town ponders the use of minimalism as a narrative device in game posts.


No idea what anyone would like about that zefiend post.

Maybe because I'm one of the few people who have attempted to offer analysis instead of just active lurking, bickering, delivering one-liner unsubstantiated reads, being vague, or showing apathy for solving the game?

That's a rhetorical question by the way.

I noticed a few people had questions for me so I'm gonna read up now.

Maybe.

I have a conception in my head of how you might play out the rest of the day as town vs mafia and I'm ready for either.

A quick ISO shows a fair amount of fence sitting. Stuff like "it could be this, but it could be this".

Pushing dreal over the questionnairrie thing like he did seemed forced but meh idk its D1.

He also talks about his own actions a little more than needed. Like hes subtly saying " i did this and thats town"


Hurry up Frank. You need to answer for this. I questioned and said I didn't understand why he was so against it. But the questionnaire has virtually nothing to do with my push. And I'm pretty sure you won't find any fence sitting, but that's funny you're fence sitting in the very next paragraph... And where, anywhere did i insinuate "I did this and that's town"?

Those entire post is total bull shit. And I'm looking forward to him providing any sort of basis for it

VOTE: Lane

Even though it might have been the first non-RVS post made in the game? Someone's gotta get the ball rolling right?

I'm trying to get the ball rolling. Lane didn't really engage rvs at all, and he enters the game trying to break rvs by questioning something that didn't seem alignment indicative to me. Dreal's bit on Frank, and KT's question seem like more genuine attempts to break rvs here.


What is busy about it? You're quick on that I think. One post asking a legitimate question. Can you think of any reasons someone might accidentally pay more attention to votes on one person as opposed to another? You say I enter trying to break rvs. How well do you think town does if rvs never ends? I engaged rvs. I voted mcmenno. Then I saw something that interested me. Why don't you go look at the posts before and after my question, then tell me when rvs ended. Your accusation doesn't make sense on many levels. You might even call it busy work.

Who else is on your suspicion list that didn't really engage in rvs? Are kt and dreal on your list for trying to break rvs? Like you said I was doing?

Both of those votes that Dreal questioned were naked votes, and it seemed pretty apparent he was trying to get more than that out of people. The mcmenno association seems like a safe misrep to get a response and seem like you're scumhunting. The rvs thing was poorly thought out, and pretending to scumhunt fits better than "breaking rvs" considering KT and Dreal's serious posting was just before yours. My bad there, but the point is still pretty much that the question falsely associates Dreal with Mcmenno.

I wasn't a fan of Snarky's "hurr modvote" or Frank's first joke from rvs. I mentioned that KT and Dreal's attempts at breaking rvs seemed genuine in the post you quoted.


The bolded, can you tell me how it falsely associates dreal with mcmenno? That may be true, but how can you know that our even imply that? There is only one way you could even imply that this early in the game. Town doesn't know. Scum know

dreal has not explained most of his actions and has largely relied on AtE for the vast majority of points he attempts to push - that is, he makes one point and then pushes it over and over, then just repeats it louder if someone counters it.

OK, is two days old and absolutely nothing has changed. We have five days.

@ Azral, KainTepes, zefriend, dreal, Gamma:

Why aren't you voting one of dreal/lane/davsto? Your wagon/non vote is doing nothing but you also aren't doing anything to diffuse the leading wagons.

@ Davsto, lane

Seriously, stop voting dreal. Look elsewhere.

@ Narna

Your lane vote blows and you've offered two alternatives "if lane doesn't have any takers." Well, we're here.

"Stop voting someone who you think is scum and who also is the largest wagon"? Ha, nope. I'm keeping putting on the pressure and hoping that more people vote him rather than wasting their votes on the literally 5 one-vote vanity wagons. You know, like yours on Menno? It's not scummy, just painfully unproductive.

It's silly to go around pushing for a final wagon to occur so we don't get a nolynch, while your vote is parked on a player on which you're the only vote.

"why aren't you guys voting dreal lane or davsto"

"why are you guys voting dreal"

... Did you just suggest dreal as a viable wagon? And then ask why we're voting there? Cause that's weird.

What's id lynch Frank for his bs case on me. And I'd vote Narna if it was worth it.

But I'm staying in dreal, because I'm not voting davsto, and I'm not voting myself. Like you said. 5 days

I've given my reasons for not voting the leading wagons and for why McMenno is scum and I'm not willing to let it go. Dreal's been at 3 votes for over a week. It's not happening and you aren't pressuring him.

No, I'm asking the 5 people who aren't voting one of the leading wagons why they aren't voting the leading wagons.

So you don't think any of dreal, lane, I, zefiend, Azral or Aristophanes are scum? And you're too stubborn to push a lynch which at least has a good chance of flipping scum and instead will push a lynch that you're certain is scum but is unlikely to flip?

McMenno is scummy as hell, but he can flip any day and is incredibly unlikely to survive to endgame. Dreal, not so much, and there's a risk that if I were to die that his lynch wouldn't be pushed as much as it needs to be. My vote is staying.

I could vote Azral, but I don't feel compelled to switch my vote right now, especially if the leading wagons disperse as I anticipate they will, which will obviously change the voting landscape.
