LG99 Night 1: A Callous Curse


Recommended Posts

Aeoryi swore at the other sailors. "Ye fools! I be a loyal crewmen aboard this ship. Your foolishness will be the end of us all. I pray to ol' Ironeyes for revenge, and pray I see ye after I enter his realm." Not wanting the crew to do any sort of violence upon them, Aeoryi leaped from the ship, landing in the Spores below. As they expanded from the water in her body, the ship rocked, and then steadied. There were no cheers, and as day became night, many plans began to hatch.

Aeoryi has died. She was a member of the Loyal Crew.

Let's work out the delta here.

  • 5 Zephyr Spores (-2 Z)
  • 7 Sunlight Spores (-4 S)
  • 4 Verdant Spores (-1 V)
  • 1 Roseite Spore (+ 1 R)
  • 1 Crimson Spore (-1 C)
  • 1 Midnight Spore

Pretty sure it checks out, but I'd just like to confirm:

4S, 2Z, 1R, 1V, 1C.

Leaning a little V on JNV. They had the time to grab a spore but didn't bother to show up and chime in, which I feel more positively about as compared to their QF performance.

Also what's with the early cycle end - is it Daylight Savings or something?

Actually, suppose:

On the weak assumption Elims didn't want to double, I'm gonna assume the Sunlights are not as likely to be teamed. Feels a bit more tenuous for Zephyr. Interesting that Hairy, Aet, and TKN all declined to take one.

Sunlight gang four-way-chain? Aman-Kas-JNV-Bee-Aman?

Sorry bro, the only reason I stayed in this game was to play with you and TJ. Drake is chopped liver ig serves him right for a late sign-up

I specifically took a Sunlight Spore to be able to PM one of you and my current order is to PM you. Lemme know if I should change it so we don't waste the spores.

JNV could PM you then and Aman can PM Bee. Maybe Bee can start a PM outside of the Sunlight Gang to filter information to/through us.

For now that is all o7

Morrigan grinned at the small spore in the palm of her glove. She had never managed to get her hands on a green one before, and plots of mischief were already spinning and twirling about her mind, like dancers. Suddenly, the boat rocked, almost knocking her over.

"Bad," croaked Chicken in her ear. His neck feathers had puffed out to form an anxious ruff. "Bad, bad, bad!"

Morrigan reluctantly tore her eyes away from the tiny treasure, stuffing it in one of her many jacket pockets, all of which were filled with odds and ends of the trinketous sort. She scuttled to the edge of the deck just in time to see the last of Aeoryi sink under the surface of the spores. The falling feeling in her gut felt like the stopping of the Seethe; heavy with the knowledge that whatever trouble had begun could not be escaped. Mutiny was sprouting on their ship, as sure as the rain from the lunagrees. 

"Ba-a-ad!"

At least Morrigan had a thimbleful of magic in her pocket, now. She would need it.

FWIW my current theory is at most one opportunist on the Aeo train but I'll take a look sometime later if I can. (I don't think it's too farfetched as prima facie, it's a five vote train which is fairly sizeable. I had a theory about TKN because I kind of don't know if E!TKN just sheeps onto Aeo or pushes that way - maybe some commitment given E!TJ but I lean against it based off TKN's wariness/reluctance to aggressively defend teammates. Not sure. Need to recheck if have time.)

Have to finish a report today and a presentation tomorrow first so not going to be too fussed to make it.

Edited to add:

Nothing really stops it from being two but I have a hard time seeing the theoretical pressure to double up here unless it's to save E!TJ, and even then...

<TJ, Royal Bee Mage, The Bald Brandon> (late followers on the Aeo train)

<Faerie Braids, Amanuensis, JNV> (abstainers)

Loosely committed to the notion of the elim team being split within these two groups.

Expecting 3 elims.

That's all for now, yarr.

But if he was in the same position as Aeo where their death seems inevitable, he’d most likely try wiggling out of the exe and go for Crimson to flip Drake with him, since people would want him dead anyway and he believes publicly gunning for Crimson is within e!Drake’s gambit range.

Gorlog's saggy ba- bags. I'm getting old and sloppy.

@Sart - Can people still pull a Lotus in this game?

(i.e. Does collecting of a spore happen at the same time as the exe? I'm specifically asking because say the top exe suspect guns for Crimson/Roseite (yes I know, just humour me) - and is killed in the explosion. Does the next top exe suspect then get exed?)

You're probably supposed to wait for Sart to do that for you as you could get roleblocked/redirected, meaning no PM then.

Actually Sart second question - for Verdant oversubscription, is the following cycle an entire cycle or just a single Turn?

You're allowed to change your orders multiple times until the Turn ends so this is more "don't feel like it" which is reasonable enough.

Awkwardly, V!leaning Aman and still wanna V!lean Drake. Acknowledge Aman on Drake's E!range but Drake just kind of feels more grouchy and petally when he's Evil 😔 I look forward to being wrong about both of them.

I don't really see it, but I'll take the free village read, yarr.

It'd crossed my mind that if we hung a Deadrunner yesterday they might've tried to drag me down with them in a cataclysm of crimson, but I figured there was no sense in dwelling on it or in giving anyone ideas ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ particularly because Aeoryi was village.

No. Taking spores comes last in the order of operations

Verdant over-subscription is for the entire cycle.

I'm willing to admit it's not a high confidence read but it boiled back to E!you not wanting to give the Village anything for free. I'm willing to work with it for now. I also agree that compiling info is pretty low effort so you aren’t ride or die rn.

Just to confirm: were we supposed to see Aeo take Roseite then?

IDK if I can get on anymore prior to rollover so for the sake of having it somewhere:

<TKN, Drake, Aman, JNV> V reads with varying degrees of ?

Raven — had a good vibe from one post but strikes me as having his attention elsewhere 

TJ — No read, potentially but disliked TJ claiming an endgame sus applied to the start of a game

Faerie — Shut up Drakebro 😔 Still felt overhedgy potentially. Maybe especially so in light of D1.

Royal — Hard to read new player. Comparison needed. Sheep onto Aeo ???

No read — Hairy, Aet

... That's a good point. Pretend you didn't see anything.

See what O7 

Ok. Last thing, yell at me if I'm on again as I gotta go do my presentation but I had a thought.

Spore Tally (unchanged since my last post)
Crimson (1/1): DrakeMarshall
Verdant (1/4): Faerie Braids
Zephyr (1/5): TheRavenHasLanded
Sunlight (1/7): RoyalBeeMage
Undeclared: Everyone Else

  • DrakeMarshall took a Crimson Spore

Strikes me that the Elims are maybe a bit risk averse (notice no Crimson doubling, regardless of Drake's alignment, and no one on Roseite) - multiple taking Verdant would seriously screw them over, which is maybe a good sign wrt Faerie, though it's also apparent who said/was going for which. Perhaps they also didn't want to have to explain taking Roseite, though that feels a bit whatever.
