Let the games begin!
The best way to start off the game is to claim BP or not BP. This is because BP claims won't be taken as seriously if you claim it later in the game, like if it's lynch or lose or if you're about to get lynched. It's a stupid idea for scum to claim BP this early since there's no reason to already think they'll be lynched. In the rare case that scum claims bulletproof, then either the cop (if there is one) or the bulletproof (if there is one) should counterclaim. The doctor shouldn't counterclaim, but if the setup is Column C then the doctor will be the only one to counterclaim(we wait for counterclaims first). If there is no bulletproof claims, then the tracker (if there is one) should claim because they know there is a doctor.
I think that's about everything about the strategy.
We also start off with random votes, so VOTE: StealthyNoodle because there's no type of argument saying that name is townish.
Also Not BP

Also, if you counterclaim DO NOT say which role you are. Just say "I counterclaim" or something among those lines.

Probably the second because he says he isn't claiming anything.
@Srceenplay all I'm asking is for you to say you're BP or not BP. If you're the BP, then I understand being scared of getting nightkilled, but you're also probably not going to get lynched since scum claiming BP is stupid. Even if you do get lynched you caught mafia.
If you AREN'T the BP, then claiming would help the town if nobody claims BP and the possibly existing tracker would claim, outing their reports on later days while being protected by the doc.

I've explained twice why it's a good strategy and it was created by Radiant Cowbells, not me.
Also, if people just stop claiming then all the other not BP claims weren't worth much.

I have read your explanations and I have seen the strategy in play and I think it's a bad way to teach newbies to play. I do not want this to be a topic of discussion when we should be focusing on RVS so please drop it.

How is it a bad way to teach newbies to play? It protects both the tracker and the BP and gives us knowledge of what our threat is and what we have to fight it. It stops scum from claiming OS BP when they're about to be lynched. If you have a really, really good explanation to why this is a bad strategy then go ahead please.
In post 8, RadiantCowbells wrote:So, over the last few months while I was not playing Mafia I have been working on strategies to up town's winrate in this setup and since I have finally rolled town I am going to put them into action.
The correct play at the beginning of D1 in this setup is for the 1-Shot Bulletproof, if any, to claim. This helps town immensely in numerous setups. Why am I advocating this?

1) It is f***ing insane for scum to try to claim 1-shot BP in this situation. It is an insane risk play which forces a 1v1 in 5/6 setups and gets minor towncred in 1/6.
2) If the setup is Roleblocker/Jailkeeper/1-Shot BP, it's easy for the BP claim to be disbelieved. The claim coming at the start of the game makes it far more trustworthy.
3) If the setup is Tracker/1-Shot BP/Goon, the Tracker knows that there is no doc and can be a lot safer on claiming. Note that mathematically the correct play is to target the outed tracker if the other PR is not known; so little potential gain is made here.
4) If the setup is Tracker/Doc/Goon, a living tracker will know by the lack of a BP claim that there is a doctor. He can then claim safely and be doctor protected the entire game. Which sucks because I'm going to get guaranteed nightkilled but I'll get over it.

Since the 1-Shot Bulletproof doesn't actually net town a mislynch by being hit it is not actually specifically valuable for it to bait the hit.
This does come at the cost of narrowing down the game possibilities for scum: but I believe that the reward is well worth the price.

It puts the focus on the setup rather than the play.
The play is heavily influenced by the setup. So focusing on the setup helps with the play.
There is enough setup-spec on MS, we don't need to encourage that. Newbie queue should be about learning to play, not solving the setup to churn out a win as easily and quickly as possible.

I know but it still happens. Read this game.
Not to mention it just f***s up RVS.
How? You can easily do RVS with only eight people being voted.

Look at this thread for evidence. RVS has been stilted by the philosophical differences in your insistence that people claim and my refusal to claim. Discussing theory at this point is not at all conducive to scumhunting, which is what we should be doing and which is what RVS is designed to facilitate.

Couldn't we claim stuff, and then post all of the random voting after(if it's even needed at that point)?

I get that the Road to Rome is made for teaching newbies and that it's very very important to have fun in these games, but it is still a competition. I find 3 way lylos to be the most interesting ways to end the game but that doesn't mean I'll purposely get myself lynched to make that happen.
It's simply churning mechanics and not what mafia is about, not how newbies should be learning to play.
The mechanics play a big role in the game, and the newbies should learn to use them to their advantage.
Tes has gotten away with being read as Town while producing 0 content whatsoever simply by pushing this strat and that is a perfect example of how crap it is.
The reason all my content has been about the strategy is because you haven't claimed yet and I want to start finding who gets rope.

I assume you're being ironic? I believe I've answered the question in previous posts, but your post also answers the question. (Think about why for a minute if you're not sure how that is.) But to elaborate on how I caught you, the post betrays your guilty conscience. The question doesn't come from a Town mindset as I understand it and doesn't lead anywhere except back unto itself. The way that you phrased it combined with the way that it comes out of nowhere (I didn't even explicitly call you scum, for instance) tell me that you have an active sense of guilt (which only scum can have) and were trying overly hard to pose the question in the way that a townie might pose it. The end result just comes off stilted and awkward.

Alright.
So if I'm scum, make a post with how a town player would answer it.

I still don't follow, unfortunately. Let's go back to 146. What were you trying achieve there?

I was trying to figure out why you thought what you did in 142. By knowing what you think a town mindset does in my slot, it gives me more info on your FoS.

I think I understand you? Wrt 146 specifically, it really depends on personality, but the generic townie response I'd be looking for there would be course-correction, provided you felt my point was fair. If you didn't think my point was fair, a healthy response would be to flesh out why and try and dialogue with me to resolve it. If you did think my point was fair, a healthy response would be to respond by incorporating the criticisms and move forwards (start pushing the gamestate). Instead, you asked me a vague question with no real trajectory. The answer to what you should've been doing all game so far, rather than emptily pushing the BP claim strat, would be scumhunting, as I've said before. But that would require you being Town, since scum can't actually scumhunt (they can only pretend to).

The reason I thought your point in 142 wasn't fair was because it seemed to be an assumption of scummy behavior without backing it up, as if you were just trying to find crap to push against me. I am working on a post including reads in it, although there will likely be a lot of null reads unless I reread stuff that particularly stands out.

Instead of making all of these in one post, I'll just do them 1 by 1.
nancyI've already explained why I think her reasoning against the BP or not BP strategy is bad, but I would also like to add that I don't like how she was talking about how newbies should be learning to play, but then she refuses to claim because
It's not fun or interesting
which doesn't sound like something from a player who wants to teach newbies how to play. Also newbies shouldn't be taught to act like their scumreads are confirmed scum on page 7.

I also find it suspicious how she proclaims she's an SE, here to assist the IC in teaching!

I'd like to think it's very likely she already knew she wasn't an SE in this game.

In the case she didn't realize she wasn't SE:
There must've been something made her realize she wasn't, within the time span of 6 minutes(the time between her posts), while focusing on a response for you:

She could use this as an excuse for feeling obliged to teach us about the game, rather than focusing on her win-con. She never had to mention this, but the fact that she does "justifies" her reason to not claim anything.
You don't need to think you're an SE slot to want to teach newbies.
Had to check, and it looks like she applied as an SE. I might be firing shots in the dark here, but shouldn't she be placed as SE in another game then, instead of taking up new-player spot here? Is this because there's a lack of new players?

SEs can replace into as many games as the want I think. She took up a new player spot in pregame since that player didn't confirm their role

I wouldn't lynch someone who's barely posted/hasn't posted unless the few posts they've made scream "SCUM" or if I have pretty decent townreads on everybody.

That's not really a good reason to not lynch somebody. I wouldn't defend Pine just because he's an IC

Yes.

Better than a possible mislynch of an active town. Can you agree with that?

While it's bad to lose an active town, chances are they are vanilla townie and we can base future Lynchs off the reactions/comments of others. A pine lynch without him defending himself could cause us to lose an important town role. Not only that, we gain far less info from a pine lynch

Exactly.

This kind of post is why I'm scumreading you, Tes. You haven't been involving in pushing the gamestate forwards at all, you haven't been scumhunting. You need to get involved in more than a superficial way and try and pick at people's arguments and find motivation behind what people are doing. Even if you're scum, you should be trying to practice those skills and not hide by cutesy posts like the above.

I have been. I've talked about your reasoning multiple times and I've asked you a question about your Pine TR. I'm wondering why you think Noodle is objectively obvscum. I'm also going to make a post about Srceenplay. It's a stretch to say I haven't been pushing the gamestate forwards at all. I haven't developed as many reads as some people because, it's not always this way but I generally don't develop reads early.

In post 387, Pine wrote:
I would like to take this opportunity to step back and apologize, as your IC, for my absence of the last few days. My job is supposed to be to walk new players through the game and be a consistent and companionable resource, and I have been failing in that capacity. I've had a rough couple of days, and have largely been absent from MafiaScum. I've sorted my shit out and am committed to serving with distinction. What follows is my catch-up from page one, my impressions and reads as a player.


Note: The following is stream-of-consciousness as I read, so expect things to change as I go.

Page 1
-Post 17 (and subsequent posts) leads me to think nancy is Town. This isn't based on standard tactics or anything, it's largely based on my relationship with nancy. I have a sense that she tends to play a bit fast and loose when she's Town, especially in the early game. A first-post scumclaim-in-jest isn't something I see her doing as scum. Subsequent shenanigans over the next few pages suggests she's trying to feel out who's going to be too eager to jump on her, feeling out who's going to take the bait. That strikes me as genuine scumhunting.
-WhyMafia jumping on Chronicle for being vote 2 on Stealthy instead of LoopDan for being the third vote strikes me as odd and disingenuous, and if this weren't a Newbie game I'd be all over that. We'll see how it plays out.
-WhyMafia then jumping onto nancy looks like scum falling into her trap. Definitely putting a pin in that.
Page 2
-Not much to observe here, nancy continues to come off as Town.
Page 3
-Pine enters, nancy interaction is pretty obvTown.
Page 4
-Stealthy's entrance looks like newScum. Praises TesXX and LoopDan for empty reasons, votes nancy as the most dynamic player present. Does not support BP-claiming strategy, agrees with nancy, but does it anyway? Then flips around and says she's not supporting a pro-Town agenda? Naaaahhh. Also as noted in Post 90, exaggerating charges against nancy.
-WhyMafia continues to make moves that come off as opportunistic, specifically moving against LoopDan for a page 1 RVS vote. Hesitating a little on my scumread though, not sure even newScum would do this.
Page 5
-A little concerned about LoopDan's push against non-claimers in the BP strategy. Citing prior results does not guarantee future success. This looks like a fallacy of some kind. Also not a fan of his dig at nancy about her statement about teaching>wincon (though I superficially agree with him, the best way to teach is to stick to wincon). As a player new to SE-status, nancy is allowed to be wrong about meta.
@nancy: Per your statement in 122, please claim either "Not BP" or "BP". While I will be interested in moderating a post-game discussion on the strategy in MD, for now it is the order of the day. Suffice to say that, if you are BP, there is no real downside to claiming it. If you aren't, there still isn't a downside. That was the whole basis of the proposal, that there was no downside for Town, and it limits scum fakeclaiming options.
Page 6
-Conversation veers into theory at this point, so some general observations: Chronicle strikes me as classic newTown, trying to figure stuff out but not really knowing how. TesXX has been focusing almost exclusively on theory and strategy discussion, with a surprising dearth of real content. Suspicions at this point include StealtyNoodle, WhyMafia, TesXX, maybe LoopDan. TRs (Town reads) include nancy and Chronicle. Still need sorting on Srceenplay and bjc/CogMachine.
Page 7
-nancy's push against TesXX at the bottom of 6/top of 7 doesn't make any damn sense. However, what's much more incisive is TesXX's reaction to it. His reaction to strong suspicion screams "I am scum frustrated at being caught for the wrong reasons." This is a classic tell, but is sometimes hard to distinguish from "Town suspected for bad reasons." This one definitely strikes me as the former. Post 167 in particular raises a red flag.
-Ha, I knew I was right on Chronicle. 168 is the Towniest of Townposts. Objective-driven, shows evidence of doing research, saltiness directed at people who aren't helping accomplish wincon. Chronicle's a hard TR now.
Page 8
-Getting cold feet on my WhyMafia SR now. Meandering uncertainty looks more like newTown than newScum. Some of his reads in 194 are hard to push, where I see newScum going for easier targets.
-Much of this page was devoted to discussion of lurker theory, so I'm going to slip into IC Mode...
Lurking is a highly-debated subject. It is also one of the areas where site meta tends to change pretty regularly. There is pretty much always a good deal of antipathy directed towards lurkers, as it is an effective strategy for avoiding notice or attention. However, site meta often shifts towards a "Lynch the Lurkers" attitude, which makes it a double-edged sword. There is also the fact that Town lurk for legitimate reasons all the damn time, whether they are busy in real life, are having a hard time keeping up with a fast-paced game, or just don't have anything to say. My general advice is to not focus too much on lurking. While individual players develop personal meta trends that can make lurking indicative (two scummers I play with regularly come to mind) it is broadly NAI (non-alignment-indicative).

Page 9
-Interactions between StealthyNoodle and WhyMafia don't strike me as scum theatre, especially given lack of daytalk (I double-checked; post 3)
"Scum theatre" is a colloquialism to describe intentional distancing or argument between scumbuddies for the purpose of deceiving Town. This is usually coordinated with daytalk, but skilled scummers can coordinate it during the night to happen in the day.

-Just because someone is posting elsewhere doesn't mean they are intentionally ignoring the game. Playing multiple games at once is a significant time investment, and when one has limited time, one must often prioritize games they're caught up on. I was quite a few pages behind at this point.
Page 10
-Not a ton to say here, though the vultures circling over my absence are really obvious. StealthyNoodle, TesXX, and WhyMafia spend the whole page setting up pushes against me and her. Taking down a Town IC and dynamic SE would virtually guarantee a scum win. Not sure completely which two of the three is scum, but I'm pretty sure it's in that set of {Noodle, TesXX, WhyMafia}. Still, this is stream-of-consciousness, so it's possible that later events will suggest differently.
Page 11
-Noodle attacks on nancy continue to be trying to make something out of nothing. This strikes me strongly as someone trying to take down a threat.
-I do not endorse Tracker-claiming: The whole point of BP-claiming is that it limits scum fakeclaiming opportunities without a drawback for Town. Having a Tracker claim is BEGGING for scum to roleblock or kill a major investigative role. Heavy suspicion of TesXX for suggesting this.
Page 12
-LoopDan pagetop endorsement of Tes!Town and Noodle!Town just gobsmacks me. No.
-Noodle 279 "not sure about Tes" at this stage is another "wtf" moment. Tes has plenty of content out, a read should definitely be possible. Nothing at this stage looks like scumbuddies.
-Srceenplay 290 out of left field, strikes me as newTown, insufficient evidence for a strong read.
Page 13
-WhyMafia 303 strikes me as gamesolving. Asking incisive motivations-based questions of the hardest-to-sort active player.
-Tentatively agreeing with nancy 314, LoopDan looks like stubborn Town SE sticking to bad reads.
-CogMachine catchup post shouts newTown. TRing TesXX for very incorrect reasons (obsession with setup rather than reads is scummy, not Towny). I'd object to the srceenplay SR, but the guy has less content than I do and he's actually been posting consistently. Pressure is good.
Page 14
-Noodle continues being scummy. Cog continues to exhibit gamesolving traits. I'm liking his push on Srceenplay, it vibes genuine.
-Noodle's 349 readslist in particular seems...opportunistic is the wrong word? Advantageous, convenient? He's looking to get rid of threats, keep allies, and butter up people not SRing him. Readslist seems calibrated to support this objective.
Page 15
-Noodle yet again, 368, throwing absolutely everything against the wall to see what sticks. Going after nancy for VT-claiming is particularly egregious. Fabricating NAI stuff into a scumread is not a Town tactic.
Page 16
-WhyMafia's saltiness in 376 is Towny. @WhyMafia - Still give reasons, even if it's scum asking. Openness is always usually sometimes in this case good, and scum aren't the only one who will read your reasoning.
-386 is goodposting

OKAY! Finally down. Very sorry this took so long. I'm going to stay current from here out.

Give me time to read this.

Still null. While I pointed out what was wrong with his reasoning against tracker claiming, I don't think it would be something scum!Pine would push against me while knowing the flaw in his reason, so I'd say it's non alignment indicative.

In post 453, nancy wrote:Let me just assume you're Town here for a moment (your scum game should be mimicking your Town game anyway, so this advice would apply regardless of alignment). It's great that you've identified something you don't like, but you're not yet getting to the heart of the issue. How does X make someone scum? Why can X not occur when that person is Town? I've been saying this a lot this game, because it's very important when scumhunting to go beyond surface level and look for motivation. If you don't do this, you're just begging to be pocketed in every game you play. When you're reasoning through your reads, you have to go deeper than just like or dislike and try to put yourself in the perspective of whomever you're trying to read, then try to discern whether or not their behavior indicates one alignment over the other. Gut reactions like "I don't like this" are good, but they need to be explored and fleshed out. Following your feelings blindly will almost always lead you astray.

Maybe it's just more of something that bothers me than something I should actually be scumreading people for.

Where's the Loopdan from Newbie 1767 that so fearlessly pushed his targets. Who had strong scum accusations because he was town? Not really seeing you pushing lynches this game. Certainly not the level of scumhunting we saw in that game. But that's ok, you were BP that game! Lets look at a game where you aren't: Newbie 1746. Oh look, more strong opinions. Pushing. Not sitting on the BP claim train and doing little else.

Well, lets take a peek somewhere else. Looks like you're capable of long posts with opinions in them. And able to actually point at posts you find suspicious. In games where you're town that is.
What about the Loopdan from 1773 that was inactive for part of d1? He won in Lylo as town.

I dunt really get what being dramatic has to do with what you said. The "of all people" implied that there was a different person you would prefer to lynch, which was what I expected your response to be.

In case you're wondering, the "go ahead and lynch me" gambit probably doesn't work as well as you think it does.
It'll help narrow down to see who's scum.

It wasn't a refusal to engage, because I knew you'd claim after I said that. I'm suspecting nancy and WhyMafia as of right now.
So now there's three roles that can counterclaim CogMachine: Cop, Tracker, and Jailkeeper(if you counterclaim don't say which role you are, just say you counterclaim CM). Also, I did suspect that Cog was the tracker because of him not claiming.
I'm not counterclaiming Cog btw

I did think that Stealthy acting as if he didn't care about getting lynched was probably because he could be a problem and he would claim it, but nancy has claimed BP, ruling that out.
Somebody might have noticed/pointed it out(if so I forgot) but WM asking the doc protection question might have been trying to find out who people think pr's are(this is just a theory) which could be something a doc would do but since nancy is almost definitely BP, I highly doubt it.

I do care, but what happened has happened. I think nancy claimed BP a bit early for it just to be a caught scum thing, so I decided to bring it up if she was counterclaimed.
We'll know if nancy is scum as soon as someone manages to survive the night.

I myself think that the BP or not BP strategy takes away the "you must defend yourself, noob young padawan" part but I think that should be solved by changing up Matrix-6, not refusing to do the strategy. There is a thread about adjusting Matrix-6 that you may like.

It's possible she claimed 1-shot BP as scum to bait a doc claim. If that's the case, the doc counterclaiming at this point is actually the best idea. Then we lynch nancy, the doc is nightkilled. Since there is no roleblocker and only one scum would be left, whoever I track tonight will be cleared. So, even if we mislynch D2 and I get killed N2, there will be a tracker clear on D3. I don't want to risk lynching nancy if she's actually a 1-shot BP and the value of keeping a doc hidden at this point isn't much higher than just counterclaiming. If you are town, please don't fake-claim (I don't know why this needs to be said but it's been happening so often in recent games I've played or modded in).

{Srceen} nullscum. I dislike the change if thought process from to .
{StealthyNoodle} also nullscum. I'm not completely done looking through his slot, I haven't liked some of his cases against nancy and I don't like how he tried to pull the same thing as WhyMafia did in
{WhyMafia} scumlean. I'm not a fan of the "I'm fine with getting lynched therefore I am town" thing that he pulled and I disagree with his reasoning of why scum wouldn't do it. Unsure of why he had a switch in attitude toward Chronicle, unless I missed something.
{Drixx} also scumlean. Yeah, I looked back at Pine's wallpost(I may take another look at it eventually) and his wallpost did seem like he was actually trying to townread nancy, possibly because she'd be the easiest to not have to put effort into making fake reads for(since he could probably pull the meta crap). There's also what BV said in about a possible Drixx + WM team which I agree with if WM were to flip red.

Oh and forgot to mention this: I do have a bit more of a scumread on Drixx than on Noodle, and since Pine has a policy against bussing, Noodle is probably more likely town. However if Drixx flips town then I have a nullscum read on Noodle again.

What about the rest of the players? Who's your preferred lynch?
The rest of the players are conftown so I didnt need to include them. Right now my preferred lynch is probably Drixx since he's my biggest scumread by a little. Also because
-A Srceen lynch doesn't influence other reads much
-A Noodle lynch heavily influences my Drixx read
-A WM read slightly influences my Drixx read
-A Drixx lynch heavily influences my Noodle read and slightly influences my WM read

nancy's gonna build a wall and it's gonna be great
nancy wrote:
Spoiler:
And now that the Day 1 masterclass is over I guess I can slip back into teacher mode. Couple things wrt yesterday that stand mentioning:

First being that I wouldn't try and interact with a wagon to the extent that I was with Drixx's yesterday unless you're conf!town or heavily Townread and really know what you're doing, just because of how sketchy it can look from an uninformed perspective if you're not smart about it. You do want to check yourself and others pushing the wagon, though, and if nothing else that's what you should get from that. Essentially with as much counterpushing off the wagon I did, if Drixx was scum it was practically guaranteed that the second scum would've followed or engaged with my pushes, unless they were entirely possessed by the spirit of the bus. The fact that none did effectively meant that scum either didn't want to push off Drixx (bussing) or were incapable of pushing off Drixx (newbie). And unless Drixx had completely given up (which he had) then his interactions with my counterpushes would've also been highly indicative of his motivations (and therefore alignment) - typically, scum!him would encourage me in a more or less one-dimensional way that displayed more survivalism that genuine conviction, while town!him would engage me in a critically communicative way (encouraged by noticing that I wasn't wrongly scumreading him) and try to point me towards his scumreads. (That isn't a statement about Drixx's meta, Drixx is just a placeholder for "scumslot" in this example.)

Second being that you just don't want to be as uncritical in your engagement with a wagon, ever, as most people were with Drixx's. Void's treatment of the wagon was an excellent example of a balanced approach and replicating that will likely get you Townread if you aren't already in a game. He was just critical enough to not conf!bias on the flip and it was his presence that allowed me to do what I did. So pushing a wagon does absolutely require a stable presence like that, and they're invaluable when you get them because it just gives you so much freedom - you don't have to worry about people losing focus. Loopdan's treatment of the wagon was not something I'd encourage emulating by any stretch of the imagination and is a surefire way to mistakenly push a scum agenda and mislynch Townies. Scum don't want you to re-evaluate basically ever, unless you're scumreading them or doing something really pro-town that is going to hurt them if it continues.

Other than that, what to say.. Noodle, when you see yourself continually convinced that everything that someone is doing is scummy in the way that you were with me in the latter half of the Day yesterday (and today), that's a pretty good sign you're lost in conf!bias. Scum rarely act scummily all the time, if at all, so it's just very rarely the case that you're going to be getting scumvibes from them at every turn. Refining that sense of when you've actually locked on to a scumslot and when you're conf!biasing a scumread on a Town slot is something that's going to be hugely important for you going forwards, but a pretty reliable sign that you're conf!biasing is if you find yourself make theories and picking up "clues" and connecting disparate threads to support your read, or finding a hidden scum agenda that no one else sees in clear pro-town play. There /are/ examples of where you'll pick up on those very same things and nail a scum that no one else saw, so it's extremely important to learn to distinguish when you're done one or the other and not lose confidence for the times when it /is/ scum. I've bailed on pushes before because I felt I was conf!biasing in that way, when I was in fact pushing a scumslot, because I didn't yet have the ability to really feel the difference between the two.

Chronicle, I hope you're not too burned out still. You played really well and should be absolutely proud of that Day 1. You handled pressure really well and responded really positively to being scumread. I'd strongly encourage you to avoid the type of hard buddying and defending you were doing with Noodle early in games because it tends to come off very sketchily. Your push on me was completely fine /except/ for the way in which it was a chainsaw for Noodle. Disrupting someone else's interactions with another slot is generally very bad practice, try and wait until it's over before getting involved if you can and if the interaction allows for it. If you can't wait, try and interact in a way that isn't disruptive, e.g., question the slot on their behavior, but don't do it in a way that intervenes or hinders them from continuing to pursue what they're already doing. This is generally advice for Day 1 play. This all becomes increasingly less relevant as you get deeper into a game and reads and stances become much increasingly solidified. I also don't know how you manage to play so heavily from your fone, that's just heroic.

One of the possible orders of events with scum!Chronicle would be:
Drixx is lynched(7 town, 1 maf left)>>Chronicle nokills>>Chronicle is treated as confTown>>Srceen Loopdogg or WM is lynched(6 town, 1 maf left)>>Chronicle kills BV(5 town, 1 maf left)>>one of the remaining townies is lynched(4 town, 1 maf left)>>Chronicle nokills or targets nancy>>Chronicle says that scum targeted nancy or that doctor protected Chronicle>>a townie is lynched>>At this point Noodle and I are being hard townread by nancy(Pine doesn't like bussing) so it's probably game over for Chronicle.
It is possible that Chronicle didn't think this through but he did have 2 IRL days to send in a night kill.
I'm trying to think about possible scenarios with scum!Chronicle killing me or Noodle.

Twilight 1


All of a sudden, a horrifying screech slashed through the air and twisted the brave adventurers'
faces into painful grimaces. Loopdan was chalking his vote down on the blackboard.

Loopdan: (Eyeing everyone) What? Drixx be scumz.
BlackVoid: Yeah, we heard that, thanks.
nancy: Actually after that, I'm pretty sure he's not the scum.

Her words were promptly accompanied by a change of mood chord, courtesy of the wall speakers.

Drixx: Let's be honest here chaps, if the poor sod I filled in for was actually a scumborg, why would I even bother
with this charade? You think I'm dying to stay here and listen to you squabble and banshee around with the chalk?
Like come on. This is basically proof by induction that I'm town.
Srceenplay: (Lisping through toothbrush) Blah-blah-blah. Can the scum die already? I wanna go to bed.
nancy: No, this Drixx wagon is disgusting and it makes me wanna lynch literally anybody else.
StealthyNoodle You're a bad actress, nancy. I daresay you're probably even Drixx's scumbu--
nancy: Oh come on, you cannot be this obtu--
StealthyNoodle: For all we know, the doctor is still out there, biding his time, waiting for the opportunity to kick
your lying scummy arse down the pit without making himself obvious. Like this is just so apparent to me that I'm
appalled at this town's total inability to loremipsumdolorsitametconcectetur...

nancy's eyes were gleaming with fury as she wrenched the chalk off Loopdan's hands and carved
her name into the board as dramatically as she could in an attempt to drown out StealthyNoodle's
rant.

nancy: FINE, IF YOU ZOMBIES WANT THAT HAMMER ON TOWN SO BADLY, YOU CAN HAVE IT!
Tribunal: Did I just hear the h-word?
nancy: ZOMBIE SHEEP AT THAT!

Drixx had strategically climbed on top of the desk, presumably trying to save himself from the
numerous trap doors that were stationed all over the floor. Unfortunately for him, a tile on the
ceiling directly above him yanked itself open and a robotic arm descended at high speed before
reeling the flailing Drixx up and disappearing into the void.

Tribunal: Can you believe they try this every single game? Silly, right? And now, for the flip...

The lights around the room all went off as the single black LCD screen to the front broadcasted
Drixx's role in big, bold letters that bathed everything in sanguine glow.


Drixx: BlackVoid, Loopdan, StealthyNoodle, Srceenplay, nancy
StealthyNoodle (L-4): Drixx
TesXX (L-4): WhyMafia

Not voting: TesXX, Chronicle


Spoiler:
Drixx the mafia goon (Day 1) has been lynched.


Deadline for Night 1 actions:
April 13, 2017 - 11:30 AM (GMT)
You have (expired on 2017-04-13 11:30:00) to submit or change your night actions.

Scum is not on the lynch. So it's down to whymafia chronicle Tess

It's possible. If Chronicle couldn't decide whether or not to believe nancy's claim, then he'd be reluctant to shoot either me or nancy. If I get doc'd and track him, that would be an instant loss.

Why would a VT claim BP though? Why would doc not counterclaim?

Last possibility is of course that nancy is doc, pretending to be BP. There wouldn't be no conflict, because she has the role that needs to CC.

I suppose I might be giving away valuable information here. Is that considered badplay, or is it fine considering we're trying to narrow down the possibilities?

Some of Srceen's last few posts just haven't made sense.
In post 1483, Srceenplay wrote:I was sheeping nancy
He says he was sheeping nancy when he said:
Let's not over think this. Whymafia is the vote. No reason at all for it not to be.
but as I've explained, nancy wasn't voting WM at the time. And as WM pointed out, there's no reason to purposely avoid explaining why to lynch him.
In post 1497, Srceenplay wrote:Scum is not on the lynch. So it's down to whymafia chronicle Tess
His reasoning for this is:
I'm not saying it can't but saying it just doesn't happen.

He says scum isn't on the wagon and says scum is narrowed down to me, WM, and Chronicle even though he says himself that scum could bus, but it doesn't.

I am going to reread Loop's ISO tomorrow when I'm less tired. It could be him, but right now Srceen and WM have been acting scummy to me so Loop is sitting in the town by PoE zone. I'm pretty sure Noodle is town because Pine has a thing against bussing I believe. And I think Chronicle is town because of what the order of events would be after him nokilling would be.

I have a hard time following this. I'm looking at the alternative scenario: that you are scum with Drixx, and when you saw me and nancy consider lynching Chronicle, you saw an opportunity to save Drixx and "went through" Chronicle's ISO so you could justify a vote there. That world looks more likely than the explanations you are giving.

Just walk me through it one more time. You didn't vote Drixx because you were undecided on which of Drixx/WM you want to lynch. So, instead of reading through their ISOs, you look over Chronicle's ISO to see if there are partner-like interactions, why? Didn't you already agree that Drixx and WM look like partners themselves in ? You also preferred a Drixx lynch and you also said that Drixx lynch influences the most number of reads so your vote really should have been on him end-of-day.

I did think that Drixx and WM were the scumteam, but I saw a Chronicle post that pinged me()(and also I hadn't looked at Chronicle as much as I did with some of the other players) and so I wanted to read through Chronicle's ISO to see partner interactions that would make me reconsider anything.

If he's only gonna be out for 3 days (even though it's usually frowned upon), I'm okay with it if that means he's gonna play for the rest of the game.

:up: I agree. I'll check the deadline again and see if Loop will be back by then(I'm 85% sure he will be), but I'd rather have Loopdan have to make the great wall of Pine than have somebody else cover the last sixty-something pages and make the great wall of China.

And if he didn't?

I'd move on. It's admitting to being scum that I believe more than saying that one's self was town.

I don't think that slot is scum? Like, I hate the fake hammer, don't get me wrong, but Pine voteparked that slot. And Pine has a reputation for not bussing. So Noodle is probably town.
Also you can just call me Ali if you want, but I don't really care.

I don't see much wrong with fakehammers. I agree with you that Noodle is very likely town. With that said, if everybody thinks Noodle is town then it's nearly autowin. The only way we can lose at this point is if Noodle is scum.

It's a great incentive for digging into all the small details.
Assuming autowin is risky and lazy. You can already see that there are several player's who don't believe win is secured.

It's possible in any game, just extremely rare. That incentive is there for me regardless. If you focus on a perfect win then when that fails you lose drive and your focus is lost. That is why the focus should be on the process. If a perfect win occurs, awesome, your hard work paid off, but focusing on the results is a surefire path to burnout.

If you and Chronicle are Town, we are 100% in autowin.

It's technically not possible in every game to have a perfect win, but they're possible in many.

If you are scum that's 100% autowin... It doesn't work like that.

Exactly.
If tes, nancy, blackvoid, whymafia, chronicle, srceen, ali, and noodle are town it's autowin.

No I'm talking about outside of newbie games. Some setups don't have any protecting roles to stop at least one townie from dying.

Why don't you trust Chronicle?

He reads more town than scum. I just don't see why he's locktown(if that's even the right term).

But you said that you don't trust him.

It isn't autowin is it?
Pine lynch>>townie lynch>>nancy killed>>someone conf'd as town>>townie lynch>>BV killed>>1 non comfirmed townie, 1 scum, noodle, 1 confirmed townie are left
Even if noodle were confTown(which he technically isn't, he's just very likely town) it's not autowin.

That's not autowin. If you townread somebody in LyLo it isn't autowin.
