This is the 3rd time now I've had to double take on Fanto thinking he was Blarg and I...I'm kind of scared because I don't know what that means.

I won't deny Mystery Inc is a great show but the Scoob, Shag and Velma love triangle sure is... something.

Meanwhile the real best show is clearly Shaggy and Scooby Doo Get a Clue!

But also those games I was an ass, every other game I was an ass, and by the end I just didnt want to keep ruining games for people. I took time to grow up, and hope I will be more additive to y'alls group now.
I'm not sure if I'm prepared for the prospect of a more sensible, helpful Spot. I don't know if that's a timeline I want to be in.

So far the D1 is going how I pictured it might with all the louder posters just circling one another and seeing who they toss out of this party first. Question is....will that work?
 
So Spot has either day-vigged Fran for a silly reason or has bluffed about being a day-vig for a silly reason. Either way, it makes me feel more like this is town Spot - see if you can guess why.

This turned into an interesting D1, but it seems like town is gonna toss away the opportunity to do anything with it by just getting rid of Spot.

If Zeke actually is the dayvig, that was definitely an unusual shot choice. Surprised more people aren't pressing Zeke and seeing what reactions spin out of that.

CS seems like a lock now with Zeke's counterclaim. Regardless of who is telling the truth the shot on Fran was a really...odd choice. I'm still not too sure why he was picked.

But why would a Scum!CS claim before a Town!Zeke knowing that they were not the source of the kill? :thinkingemoji:

M..maybe CS won't be thrown out today? I'm not sure if they can get people to move over in time though...

Because Zeke is stubborn, even more than me. Once he thinks he is into something he will not reevalute things or see what other thinks. He will just tunnel.

I don't have a clue what Coolest tried to do. That was really an horrible play.

Really stupid D1 for town.

I had Sparks and Nin as scum. How bad were my reads?

Actually this D1 could provide a lot of good depending on who flips in the future. And if Town is willing to go back and look.

Neither of them are Scum. :<
 
Oof I misunderstood too late and didn't realize my role could be used as a weak cop. Should've crumbed and gone for a scum read. Rac was a risky target but I had hoped that scum would instead take out one of the 4-5 lowest posts player

I think that, for a weak cop, it's a better idea to go after town reads instead of scum reads.

3-4 confirmed townies Is better than 1 scum in the long run.

I'm not really interested in talking about mechanics and role speculations. I want to talk about reads.
I don't know if that was a genuine spoiler from rac about Fanto, but this line right here set off all kinds of alarm bells for me. When someone wants to move away from mechanic discussion, I can only ever see that as an attempt to steer town away from putting their heads together and trying to work things out. Perhaps that's me being too cautious, but when there are roles and mechanics at play, town's got to be as informed as possible - even speculation can get people thinking on the right track eventually.

Zeke's behavior is starting to make me think Fran actually just fell into a random trap and died.

This game has entered bizarro world with how people are acting.

there's also a VERY IMPORTANT DETAIL being missed here but. there's nothing to be said or clarified about it. they just have to realize it.

I would not want to be town for this game. There's already been some big slip ups from a whole bunch of players and it's causing a lot of confusion. The frustration levels seem to be amped up this game by a lot and it's only D2. I'm not even sure what the best play or lead for town is here as so much of both D1 and D2 have been focused on town gambits/claims.

They need to just lunch someone, and hope N2 pulls up something useful.

On the flipside, scum has to be pretty happy here. Going into D3 with a pretty good chance of curbstomping town for the rest of the game if they're able to keep town riled up and stressed at each other like they have been. And I think they have a good shot at hitting an important town PR if they've been paying attention. (If said person isn't lying about what they've been subtly hinting, of course)

You can't just leave it at that! Share your theory in spoiler tags, you've got me curious.

Mobile, so I'm just grabbing the most blatant of hints to a PR, but I don't think Stu is scum.

Cool

I'm not though and voting me out would be a big mistake.
He's made a few posts earlier on that caught my attention too hinting at a not vanilla townie role, and if he's not scum himself (still a possibility, he does seem pretty content to not try and solve the game which seems weird for him) I'd go for him. He could be playing a good vanilla townie game tho, and is trying to bait the night kill, but I feel like he's trying to stave off being killed at night with his cavalier entrance today hoping that he'd be killed. Like, scum are less likely to kill someone when they're asking to be killed in my experience.

Hewwo.

Anyways, I needed to sub out because
1. Not having very much fun in this game personally.
2. Not going to have time to play much in the next phase because of Thanksgiving weekend and being away from my computer for most of it.
3. My own mental health, my stress/anxiety/depression levels are way too high right now (though my therapy session tonight worked wonders, I am feeling a lot better now), and this game has been very intense and stressful for me so far.

My alignment/role if anyone is wondering, in a triple spoiler tag to keep it extra hidden!

Vanilla Town

I don't think I played very well here at all, my reads were trash, I was getting mad at myself and the state of the game too much and feeling like I was never going to be able to find Scum. I honestly have 0 Scum reads, everyone seems Town or Null, my confidence in my reads has taken a big dive after the last game and now this one too. I definitely need a break for a few games, even if that means not playing in Conspiracy 2.

My hottest of hot takes is that Loki is Scum though, if she doesn't die in the next couple nights then I'll be sure of it. Something about her votes today just felt weird to me and she has had no pressure at all.
 
If it means anything Fanto, you didn't have much to work with anyway. Town has pretty thoroughly fucked themselves at this point and I don't see many leads myself.

Glad to hear you're feeling a bit better now.

Thanks everyone, this community means the world to me and I appreciate the support from you all. <3

On a game related note:
Wait, Turmoil claimed as a fucking Tracker at EoD yesterday? Lol, I totally skimmed past that when I was catching up at work, I was only reading the votes. And Kits' response to the claim was "ok boomer" lmao.

Wouldn't be surprised if he's a Scum Tracker tbh, pulling half of the Nin Gambit from Conspiracy. (For those wondering, the other half of the gambit is claiming to be a Neutral Tracker lol)

Scum is playing a really even game with Town rn. If they can keep this up they could win this game without having one of them die.

So what happens if there isn't a replacement?

I think the fairest thing for everyone would be to modkill the slot
 
2 hours till deadline and the majority of town roles which require commands haven't given any :/

That's unfortunate, this upcoming day is going to be really important for Town, and if their PRs aren't submitting actions it's only going to make it harder to solve the game in the long run. I get it if people have been busy this week, but still, its unfortunate.

I hope you're still enjoying running the game though, you've done a great job and I'm sure everyone would agree. <3

They're all in now, only took a bit of pestering ;)

Thanks, though it definitely doesn't feel that way haha. Gamerunning has been an... interesting experience so far, I'm looking forward to seeing how it all turns out.

Things were stressful for me running LiS Mafia, and I was always blaming myself for it, so I totally understand. Just remember that you're here to keep the game running and to enforce the rules and I think you've done a great job there, you aren't responsible for how things go beyond that.

For those who know my alignment
Wee has to be Scum here, right? All of the "I told you so's" about the lunch targets are suspect to me, especially when her biggest reads are Meta on Bae, going after LP, and me feeling "weird" or something. I just dont buy it.
