Welcome to Spec!

Here we can talk about all the crazy theories that the players create.

Also, check out this thread during the night phase, maybe there will something to do here.
 
Every time Sorian gets put forward for the D1 whack, every time town talks themselves out of it and every time town ends up regretting it later on. (Apart from those times where they do it and it turns out he's town after all.)

Aeleus just told me that they made a breadcrumb in their post about Sparks.

It's so obscure that they had to explain it to me. I dare everyone to find it.
 
Let's add it to the court record:
Aeleus said:
Currently my technique for reading Sparks is trying to see how much he's paying attention to that entire game, rather than individual arguments because his are often hard to interpret. I find that TownSparks pays decent attention to the game (in his own way) while ScumSparks tends to get bewildred by the fact that he hasn't been lunched yet and just tries to keep it that way.

HoH is a decent example of this, TownSparks thought something was off in my first post of the game (it was actually a very niche breadcrumb) and he was the only one to smell something was off. I don't think the ScumSparks I saw in LiS was able to make observations like that.
Can't say that I'm seeing it myself yet, unless 'bewildred' is an intentional typo. Even if it is, I'm not sure what it's pointing to. Hmm.

not going to argue that i am weird but what makes me weirder than for example TheChuggernaut ?
Alexa, play 'This Town Ain't Big Enough For the Both of Us' by Sparks.

One of the players have the following question for spec chat to answer: Does a role of Room Switcher sound like it would be a scum role?

Please, to answer the question just use YES/NO and highlight the answer.

Hmmmmm, this will be fun. But whoever asked this question knows I'm here and Scum. Meaning they will expect me to lie and not tell the truth to them. They really couldn't trust the results of this answer.....unlesss...

Hey @Alexem , wanna be honorary scum? we have cool jackets~

yesssssss

our job is confusion and chaos. whoever this mystery questioner is should not get anything useful from us in their attempt to gain an upper hand over scum! now we could do this by not answering but that's just no fun, is it? I say we give them an equal answer - 1 yes, 1 no. let them squirm and try to figure out which one may be mine and which isn't. all without knowing you are playing along. >:)

Also I feel a little offended by Sorian's post saying it's good that Loki replaced me, etc. I read it as being happy I'm not in the game anymore which makes me kinda want to not play for a bit now. :/

Yeah that was really not okay for him to say. Sorry, Stu. :/

Hope you and Donna had fun in Japan! hopefully the jet lag fucks off soon

Thanks <3

Donna is still asleep so she may be recovering better now than the last few nights. Me, not so much hahaha. ;-;

Glad I subbed out now tbf. the jet lag was just making it a chore to participate. I thought I could handle it since I didn't have this much trouble after our previous trips but well, shit happens I guess haha.
 
Hello - glad you both enjoyed your trip. I have to admit that I thought it was a brave move to jump in to a game like this as soon as you got back, Stu, but I think you've done the right thing in subbing out while you ride out the jet lag. And besides, it's not like you're completely out of the game while you're in the spec team...

For the record I just hit the post in question - I think he was firmly referring to the idea that he can read Loki early game easier than you as opposed to actual joy that you subbed out. More a meta evaluation than anything.

I would hope that was all he meant but it didn't read like that to me when I read it :/

I thought I would have more time today at work but I don't and I won't before 4 so I'm just going to be in the moment and not bother catching up. I see loki is here and she repped Stu, honestly, good, that's a better fill for that slot early days anyway, easier to read.
The bolded part is the key. If he had just said good and not explained why then I’d see where you’re coming from. That he specified reading early days changes that. If Sorian meant it in a derogatory way I think it would’ve been pretty clear. It is Sorian after all lol
 
Forgot to mention this yesterday, but if Faddy really does have a role that forces him to play GIF mafia in exchange for getting confirmed... that's brilliant.

The bit that got me was the "anyway" part. It felt like that was just tacted on or something like that.

eh, forget I said anything anyway. don't want to mess up spec with crap

No worries Stu - not trying to downplay your feelings either. Just was hoping to provide a different perspective in case it helped.

Hrmph. That no kill really hurt scum here. Depending on the roles going on in the background i'm really hoping my scummates focus on taking out certain players with far too accurate reads. :x
 
I err on the side of no-kill nights being dubious for town. While there's a chance of town getting a lucky block in, I usually take it as a warning that scum might be revving up a delayed kill or setting up some kind of false trail. I'm probably being overly paranoid, though.

Honest confession time I almost, almost put in a vote at the last possible minute to try and tie myself with Zeke. Really glad I didn't. :>

He’s been playing with Alexa nonstop and you find him serious??
It's probably nothing, but I've had this idea at the back of my mind that there's more to Chuggs' posts about Alexa and Siri than just shitposting. I'd love it if:
A - It turns out to be a method of surreptitiously giving day commands, or...
B - He's using it to send out messages (say, looking for a partner)
I know both of those are highly unlikely, but I still like the thought.

It’s as Fran and Natiko said fwiw, you are impossible to read early days because you are clearly not into the game until you find a thread to pull.

I mean, what could I really do in that situation. I’ll take my small victories and yell at Fran some more.

You were stuck with a gamble no matter what. I can understand why you would have leaned towards it being someone memeing as opposed to an actual result.

Well that's good but the way it worded made me feel like how I said I felt. I'll admit, I was pretty sleep deprived due to Jet Lag when I read it. It's why I replaced out.

(this is the hardest Jet Lag has hit me and Donna that we're still recovering x.x)

And we have another question from our secret medium:

Do you have a handle on who is asking these questions?

Remember, just answer the question with Yes or No and highlight it.

Hey Stu, just to make sure.....were you town? Because you seemed town but Loki didn't seem at all comfortable in what she was doing.

I have to wonder what difference it makes to be a miller in a bastard game, given that so many lies and distortions are going to be in place. (Unless Fanto is now, in fact, a death miller, which would pretty damn bastard even for bastard rules.)

Narf very kindly added a personal note to the apparently-standard info about being in the bathroom, specifying that i got results today but can’t use my power today. My schedule is odd so that may be why.
Right, so if there's no question tonight, then it seems pretty certain that it's Wee we're winding up providing valuable assistance to.

Also rip Bae.

Totally forgot that she used a Ninja on Night 1. Super simple mistake that will cost scum but it happens. Shame but there's not much that can be done.
 
What I fine hilarious in all this is that I investigated PirateBae last night too. If I were alive I would've been able to confirm all this pretty quickly.

@dragon mom when you get here
don't worry too much about what happened. Shit happens. Hopefully this means Fanto will get your scum curse and next time you'll roll town.

Or just get revenge and tell Fanto Chloe sucks
