  1. Lol. I do think that if I had survived/been returned we could have easily gotten quite close to the Stewards. Ah well. Perhaps another time.
  2. Lol. Grats on that then. I figured that your win-con was to have returned in five factions, so I guess I misread your claim via that bias. Also grats to the Stewards for saying my name the most times of any faction. And saying the most things of any faction, apparently. O.o You guys were so active lol.
  3. I signed up anonymously and didn't really reveal anything special... I admit I wasn't hiding, but I'm proud of you too. How'd you guess?
  4. You filthy liars, you. Of all the factions that could have won... Ah well. Gilgamesh will be back. Although it's sad that I couldn't achieve ultimate Shardic power in Seonid's last game, I'm sure that their will be many more who attempt to continue this legacy. Fantastic writeup, by the way. Great end to a great game. Also, oops. I would never have guessed that Maill was Axolotl. I was so sure that you were someone else... Aman as Salmon, I could have guessed. Been a while though. Sart, you made my day with that reveal in the Scadrial doc. Definitely one of my favorite players from that moment on. Alv! I knew I liked Mauve. Dang there are a lot of new players. I swear I don't recognize half the names on this list! One of the many nice things about anon games is the opportunity to interact with players from a clean slate perspective. Gives you a chance to get to know them better. Oops. Perhaps I may have been projecting my own feelings onto your actions. Beneath my charming demeanor I am secretly a very spiteful creature. I guess? Final words; sorry Maill for pushing your lynch so hard. I don't really know exactly why I was so intent on killing you... I think it's honestly because I just really wanted Odium back. I wasn't really so much worried about your affect on the game, or your danger to us, as I was on getting Odium. Which, in retrospect, likely made little to no sense. I should have guessed that you would pas it away... too bad we couldn't have worked together. Anyway good game everyone. I suppose I'll see you all at the next anon game that catches my interest.
  5. On the topic of Chromium stealing Destiny: I can't help but wonder if Destiny works in a similar way to how Ta'veren work in WoT. It kind of fits with what you guys were saying about some people having a higher "Destiny Quotient" (Lol) and would kind of fit with the sort of inspiration Brandon might have had for the ability. And being able to "Steal Destiny" might be like spiking Rand or Mat to gain their kind of powers, and gain the ability to sort of twist fate around you like they did. Just spitballing, but it could also mean that if you somehow steal enough people's destiny, you could artifically turn yourself into a kind of Ta'veren. Or would that just try to pull you in a bunch of different directions at once? Interesting to think about.
  6. Sorry to back out just before the game starts, but I've realized that I probably won't have time to participate as much as I'd like, and I'd rather not participate on a sub-par level. Terribly sorry. Perhaps Kiilian will be back someday.
  7. Mhm. I got that. It's really quite interesting.
  8. Ooo. Conversions. Fine, I'll sign up. Put me in as Kiilian.
  9. Yeah, I admit I definitely didn't see this coming. Huh. Well, my main three regrets are that I wasn't as active as I wanted to be, didn't leave Silverlight soon enough, and that the game ended this soon. It was a pretty good game, all things considered. And DoS, I most definitely need two copies of Preservation. One's broken, and is acting as a container for something else. Humph. And I should probably throw together some Moro RP. -sigh- Another thing I wish I'd done more of this game.
  10. Wow. I leave for a day, and like, everything happens. I admit, I did not expect that to be a game-ending win condition. I can't wait to see the after game discussion on this one. And it looks like my world doc got super active after I left too. On another note, Preservation is mine. Ain't nobody getting that. Hey, now I have two. Ok, one isn't mint condition, but still.
  11. Sure. I was suspicious of Drought, but it turned out that he was village, so I was clearly wrong there. Then I was pinged, and wanted to just put a vote out. I scanned the thread, and felt a gut suspicion of you. And that's about it. However, looking at Drake's reasons for voting for you, I do find them rather interesting. It does seem a little odd that you would anticipate multiple kills, before they happened, after a game where most nights have gone by without a lot of kills. Also this: That sentence just seems off to me. I have this sneaking suspicion that you're ruin... But I don't have a whole ton of evidence to back that up. Your defense of yourself against Drake seems pretty solid; I'm mostly leaving my vote on you as a placeholder for now. I don't love this train of thought. Returned aren't nearly as useful to us as real villagers. Although I do wonder if the information gained would offset the loss. I'm not super suspicious of Drake; I did a run over of his posts and I'm not feeling anything super off... Idk. @randuir, correct me if I'm wrong, but Drake wasn't on you original list of suspects, right? And I don't quite remember you having suspicions of him prior to this cycle. Could you elaborate on that a bit?
  12. 'Sup. I've been kinda busy with work so I don't have a whole lot of time to do analysis or post. Sorry. Fifth.
  13. I'm satisfied with Drought's explanation for now, as well as the other pieces of information that have come up. I'm not going to vote on anyone else just yet.
  14. Grk. That double vote is just gonna keep bugging me. Really need to pay more attention. On the upside, I did go over your posts pretty recently, so I've got some more stuff to say about you. I think my bad gut read comes partially from having mostly seen, during the first couple of cycles, your posts consisting of short one or two line bits, which tend to come off to me as someone trying to fly under the radar. That's the general tone I've been getting from you. A lot of your posts seem very safe, and there's something a little off as far as tone goes. Other than that, you haven't really posted a lot. I feel a bit hypocritical as I'm pointing out the reasons I have for being suspicious of you, as I'm seeing that I did a lot of the same stuff. As you yourself said, time gets in the way, and I totally get that it's hard to post sometimes. Hmm... I think another part of it might be that I felt, at least originally, like you were a "likely suspect". Like, one of the people who wasn't getting a lot of attention, and who I wasn't getting a specific read on. I worry that the people I miss are the ones that are evil, which played a part in the gut read. There's nothing really solid here, but it's the kind of read that can get worse as the game goes on, because if someone I'm worried about isn't getting lynched, I only get more worried. Still, I might switch my vote later on if you post some more, or if another candidate becomes obvious. I actually do agree with this. I've got a bit of a bad gut read on El, but there's nothing solid behind that either. Eternum could totally be Ruin, but I'm feeling that Fifth might be more likely here. And that's all I've got for now.
  15. *blinks* Uh. I guess I forgot about that. Wow. As far as why I want to lynch Drought, it's mostly because of gut feelings. I'm also totally for lynching Ruin, if we figure out who that's most likely to be. I don't really want to see any more planets destroyed.
  16. Well, I apparently didn't post the rather long thing I had written up earlier... And now it's gone. And I don't remember enough of what I said to try and write it up again. I did want to vote on Drought, though. I remember that. DoS is right about the distribution for Nalthis. I think El and I arrived this cycle, and I was placed here randomly. I was still hanging out on Silverlight. And that's all I've got for now. Sorry I can't be more active.
  17. Or maybe get to use one of their actions to gain an investiture of the shard they have. That makes sense to me, balance-wise, and also from a flavor perspective it works out ok. Anyway, I don't really claim to understand how balance works, and yeah, it's unfortunate that their aren't more kills, but I think the GMs probably know what they're doing. And, to start the day, I'm going to put a vote on Drought.
  18. I'm neither going to confirm nor deny that, because I'd like people to overthink as much as possible when trying to target me. So, to all of you who are worried I have shardic protection, and thus won't waste a kill on me; I have shardic protection. Don't waste a kill on me. And, for all of you who would like to see me dead because I have a shard, no, I don't have a shard. Don't waste a kill on me. Now that that's settled, I'll say that I don't think it's a bad idea to return someone. In a game with limited conversions, it's not going to be worth it to convert a role like Returned. So, I don't think it's a bad idea to keep returning villagers. Why would it be great if Preservation claimed?
  19. Yeah I'm not sure that I really want to get a shard? I feel like that puts a bit of a target on my back. But I'm still suspicious of Straw? And I really kinda do want a Shard... Oh dear. We should probably kill HH. Is there any way either of them could survive the lynch? Also, isn't HH basically gonna have at least two votes today? Actually answering these questions won't do me any good, since I'll be asleep at rollover. Ah well. I suppose the right call is HH, as much as I kinda want a shard.
  20. Huh. That's interesting. I'm gonna keep my vote on Straw for now, although I'll consider moving it to HH at cycle's end.
  21. Yeah, I get that it would have been a good idea. I missed rollover after a busy day, though, and a couple elements conspired against me placing an action. Ah well.
  22. Yep. I was wondering about that, actually. And, to parrot Joe a bit, why me? Out of curiosity. Also, sorry for sorta wasting that; I forgot all about rollover, and didn't use the action. Terrible disappointment, I know.
  23. Thank you for this. My thoughts on a vote are between Straw and HH, and personally, I'd rather lynch Straw. But I recognize that this might just mental pushback on my part, as I don't really like the idea of not lynching someone who could be evil just because they've been lynched a couple times. I would honestly rather lynch Straw, As for other players, I don't know that I've seen enough Joe-posts to determine whether or not I'm still suspicious of them now that Orlok is gone... Idk. Drought, I've got less of a bad gut read on now, but I still feel like something is off. I might go over his posts if I have time and try to put something together. Everyone else I basically am equal on, with some more village leans. Anyway, as sort of a placeholder vote, I'm going to vote on Straw and even it out for now. I'll be back on later to do some more stuff.
  24. Or they were using it as a crude scanner. I could see it being used like that.
