  1. Okay, I'm going to post my thoughts on this post according to how Burnt split up her post: Firstly- Telling us that you got a random bird could be true or it could be a subtle way of making everyone think that you took an action to get an aviar rather than to sabotage. Secondly- The reaction to losing the brig could be real but it also feels like it could've been a fake reaction. I try not to read too much into reactions to things that happened in the cycles. Regardless of alignment people mourn or fake mourn in their posts generally lol. I don't see that losing the brig did that much other than knock us down to a regular MR without a brig mechanic. I don't see why the elims would knock out the brig over another section of the airship this early in game. I did mention that they might take out the brig at some point but I thought they'd only do that if they also had an inspector who would lock someone up and then take out the brig. But that would be like something to use late in game to get a double hit near the end. Not something to try cycle 1. The navigator could always have been an elim trying to prove striker's innocence cycle 1 by showing that he got the birds and didn't sabotage. That would be a move I'd consider on cycle 1 so that me getting the birds would look less evil as an elim. (not accusing, just speculating based on what I might suggest as an elim) Thirdly- Pointing out that you will be looking specifically at the people who initially voted for Elandera etc is a tactic that elims often use to point blame on players for lynching a villager. While it is something you should look at, it just gives me a feeling that you're specifically placing extra seeds of doubt in people's minds about those players. Overall my read on this post is that there's nothing in it that wouldn't be safe for an elim to say. I really shouldn't analyze each post like this in a post of my own but I'd find it a little interesting if I do and make you all have to read it. Would it be possible for a villager engineer to have read my post last cycle or just to have thought to themselves that the brig is more potentially dangerous to leave available then it is good? I'm not saying i'm positive that would be true but I'm curious to the possibility that a village engineer would sabotage the brig to avoid the elims getting a hospitalization. I find it hard to believe that Rand would give the elims an engineer when there are only 17 players to begin with and the elims can already sabotage. I'm not ruling it out, just curious if a village engineer would've done it for some reason. Why would a village engineer want there to be someone in the brig when they sabotaged it on cycle 1? That seems far too risky. This post feels genuine to me. As a villager I often try and cut off people's suspicions before they start. Because *cough *cough people do what they've done this cycle and jump down your throat for stuff that's not even suspicious. xD Drake's vote on Stick for saying this seemed almost like a joke or slyly teasing someone but then he seemed to put more weight behind that suspicion in his next post. Striker's vote on her felt like someone trying to jump on the bandwagon and looking for an easy reason to lynch a villager. These were a few things I really wanted to mention from my first read through and it felt best to put them under this quoted post before I forget them. Striker has been giving me some bad vibes in this game and I could see a Striker/Drake team. (just a theory) Is it? I'm a little surprised they'd have one in a game with so small a player count. I'm not positive they do have one tbh. I don't like to assume things like that early on. Why do you seem so unsurprised that they had one if they do? Oh that's a good point. I can definitely see the elims trying to get the brig out early because of having their actions blocked and the inspector reporting that to the thread. Hm. I like this point. I'm reading village for that point of view. I'm gonna pause right here and vote for Striker and then finish my post. I want this vote to be seen before the end of the cycle. HIs posts feel off to me and where Lopen claims that he seems to be talking off the top of his head, I don't necessarily read village on someone just for that. I'm gonna post some reasons why I think this: First cycle he says that there are 4 players up for the lynch and that it would make 3/4 chances of there being an elim in that pile. He then adds another name onto the list instead of adding to one of the existing candidates (this can be a safe place for an elim because he says he doesn't want to break any ties and have the person flip village) He votes on an inactive because he hasn't found anyone he suspects. Not a terrible reason for a Cycle 1 vote but not an unsafe elim move either. Picking off an inactive can be an easy way to allow no information for the village. Plus, I wouldn't call someone being absent for part of 1 cycle them being inactive lol. Then the post in this cycle about a village engineer wanting someone to be put in the brig when they sabotaged it? I don't understand that line of thinking. Then his reads on people he starts out saying that Xino could be an inactive elim but then says that he doesn't think there would be 2 inactive elims? Who was the first one that you're so sure of? (Oh nvm I see the thing about Aman later on) Then the whole casting shade Stick's way after Drake already had seems like pushing for a stick lynch without actually having to vote for her himself. Pretty much all of his reads were neutral which doesn't tell us much if he gets lynched and flips elim. Pretty safe way to play a reads list while looking like you're posting a lot. (later on he does use the Stick thing as a reason to vote on her which could've been a way of playing it off as that was someone he had previously stated suspicion of in an earlier post.) Takes his vote off of stick because he likes her response but then later puts it back onto stick. Hmmmmmmm okay so reading through some more Striker has actually voiced suspicions of Drake so maybe my theory about them isn't correct or maybe it's distancing. It looks like currently the vote is tied for 2 and 2 on stick and burnt. A vote on striker might not tell me as much right now as a vote on Drake if I think they have enough interactions to pull from since Drake already has 1 vote on him. Okay so strike the vote on striker for now lol. Gonna vote Drake and go back and do more analysis on him. Edit: sorry everyone I decided sleeping was more important to my health than doing more research. I'm happy with leaving the 3 way tie where it is for now. I am curious to Burn't alignment as well as Drake's so I'll let it stand there and go off to bed.
  2. There was already a tie actually for Aman and xino? drake forgot to take his vote off of xino so he actually has 2 votes. Not sure what Rand's policy is on that. @Randuir @Young Bard @Devotary of Spontaneity that's why I said I was okay with the vote where it was because I thought it was already tied and I should be asleep lol.
  3. Okay just caught up and finished reading everything in the rules. It's almost 2 AM so I'll be brief. One thing that I'm curious about is the internal affairs role. If there's more than one internal affairs role and several people get locked up in the brig then sabatoging the brig will put multiple people in the hospital which could take out multiple players that cycle rather than one that the elims could attack. I agree with whoever said that the village probably has a trapper and not the elims. It would be too powerful in a game with less people. The elims having a doctor sounds right and I'd think each side has at least 1 if not multiple engineers. Elim doctors healing their own teammates might become suspicious so I'd bet they'll heal villagers at some point to throw people off. Especially for if they get lynched later on. Biologists are helpful for each side and I'd think the elims would be wary of sabotaging the lab if they had a biologist because the person hospitalized will be at random. If their biologist gets hospitalized already then it would be fair game. Also I'd target someone every cycle to figure out who's targeting who and possibly catch elims that way. Messengers get to talk to the spec doc???!! Do they get to ask questions? I must know more @Randuir Okay that's all my comments for now. I must sleep. Sorry for taking so long. I'm good with the lynch where it's at because I don't have thoughts on it right now. My brain is tired and I promise to be more involved next cycle.
  4. Okay finally here and going to catch up on the thread. Listened to the audio book of 6th of the dusk because I didn't want spoilers. Sorry for being late to the party but here's a bird I painted while listening to the story. Hopefully it'll help make up for my absence a little. Haha (not sure why the image is sideways)
  5. Okayyyyy so I worked today and then totally didn't forget the game was starting lol. I'm gonna listen to sixth of the dust tonight and I'll be back to read the rules and the thread after because spoilers
  6. Signing up! Haven't played in so looooooong
  7. Starting my first day of work today so I'll be back on at some point but still don't know my schedule. The manager just told me to come in after my college appointment this morning so that's not very helpful haha. I want to look at Fura and Rand specifically. I didn't like the meta lynch and I want to state my reasons when I get back in full.
  8. Okay I caught up! (I may not have totally gotten sidetracked with life after dinner) I don't have time to go through as much analysis as I'd like and I have to admit to myself that life is too busy to be as active as I'd like for me right now. If I had to pick an elim out of the active players, I'd say that Fura is giving me a bad vibe from some of his posts and reasoning so I'd like to read back through all of his posts before next cycle if I get the time. Rand is also setting off red flags for me with some stuff he's done, but I can't recall what they all were. I just doubt myself with Rand because I always think he could be an elim and don't want to rule it out. I'll try to look closer at some more people soon. My biggest village read is probably Karn because I feel like an elim wouldn't have risked pushing that hard for Snip's lynch in only cycle 2. Almost all of his posts so far have felt too genuine to be an elim. (If you are than well done, especially for your first game.) @Ookla the Unprepared Are there specific reasons you feel this way about me? I know your first suspicions against me I answered as best I could, but I never got a response as to whether you acknowledged or didn't believe my reasons in any way. I feel like your just sticking with a gut read instead of looking elsewhere very much. In regards to my vote on Rath, I did say it wasn't a retaliation vote as much as it was for his voting reasons and because I misunderstood part of his post. Just because his vote had been on me does not make it directly a retaliation vote and it slightly irkes me that it keeps being called such. I would have voted on him after that post, irregardless of his vote being specifically on me. Just wanted to clear that up. I don't have time to do much to determine the vote at this point and feel wrong putting a vote on Fura without doing more research on him. I'll be abstaining from the lynch this cycle which I've never done before. I feel it's gotten enough votes to carry it through and I ran out of time to look at Meta's posts. Edit: okay, looking back through. Why are people lynching Meta?? I see 2 votes that look like they missed Meta's reasons for voting Fura and they weren't just following Ookla the East's vote. Then other ones that just kinda hopped on.
  9. Crap.....I forgot about the game because I had so much to do today. College registration, stuff for my job I'm starting tomorrow, and babysitting. Apologies all, I really haven't had any time today. Edit: Let me eat dinner and I'll try and be back on for as much as I can before the cycle ends.
  10. Sorry for not being active this turn. I've been busy irl. I'll be back next turn. Although I do have some college stuff tomorrow, I should be free in the evening.
  11. The Snipexe lynch is pretty well explained in some of the last several posts if you're interested. Got about 7 minutes to read them lol.
  12. I feel like I should point out that if he does flip village, that we shouldn't be too quick to kill Karn. I'm not certain that elim!Karn would push that heavily for a lynch this early in the game? I just get nervous when I see so many people saying that it would essentially confirm Karn's alignment. Remember to keep an open mind.
  13. Okay so about Snipexe, I said I was leaning village on him because: 1. He was already in the spotlight so much on Day 1 then why would elim!Snip want more spotlight on him with the redirected action that Fura talked about? 2. If Padan Fain exists and could have killed Village!Snip than would they have or would they use a mislynch? Or could they have been inactive? Or could they have missed that rule clarification? 3. If Snip flips as Rand then that could be really bad. (I know this isn't a point in favor of him actually being village, it just made me worry about lynching him.) However, based on the fact that Karn is pushing very hard for his lynch, I would like to see Snip's alignment and for the same reasons as day 1 I would like to know Snip's alignment based on all of the interactions people have had regarding him. I think at this point, it's probably just worth it to find out his alignment so we have more to look at from there. Rathmaskal Snipexe
  14. I said "felt" because I misunderstood part of what you were saying so I'm thinking about what I want to do and if I still suspect you based on reconsidering my position.
  15. Retaliation votes on their own are sketchy. But, I found your vote sketchy regardless of the fact that it was on me. It was because i thought you were saying you should vote for one of the other people but then just voted on someone else with a gut feeling. That could be an elim trying to not play sides and just keeping the lynch at 1 and 1 and 1 and etc. I still don't see how keeping the vote tied at all 1's by just adding a gut vote would really help the lynch and so I felt like you were avoiding getting involved until maybe someone else did analysis towards the end of cycle that you could jump on.
