Just by the dentist? Puh, that is child's play. I had to go to the hospital to get them surgically removed because they apparently were in a very hard spot. They couldn't just cut them out, so they had to break them down into small pieces and remove them piece by piece. I will never forget the sound of someone breaking my teeth into small bits, it was a horrifying sound.
The prior wisdom tooth extraction I mentioned above was done in the dentist's office and two of those had to be broken and removed in small pieces. Actual surgery for hard to reach wisdom teeth sounds miserable though.
Yeah, they had to cut open my gum AND break down the teeth. That left a hole in my mouth for two weeks that I had to clean after every meal by putting a tube inside the hole and pump some salt water in it, or else it would get infected and I would be fucked There is still a hole there now, it will probably never fully heal (but it is no longer big enough I have to pump salt water into it, thank god).

Yeah, I don't know if I like the Merlin role for a long-form game like this. It sucks to have a bunch of people invested for multiple weeks only to lose because one person misplayed their role. Which is what is likely to happen here.
Yeah, I think having the exact voting records is hurting town much more than it is scum, especially if Merlin never wants to make a bad read. I'm not sure having just a resistance type game would make it much easier either though, just from seeing how scum has been voting. Like most mafia games, inactivity is hurting anything that could have buried Merlin's posts, and I do wish that now that Percival has clearly figured out Merlin that he would start acting on it, but it's hard to deny that scum has a clear advantage right now. I think possibly the way to fix it and still make it Avalon would be to maybe take out a role like Morgana (or combine her with the assassin), and have more roles like Mordred and the Lancelots. That means that even if he wanted to Merlin CAN'T play super obviously, and we could have more interesting swings within the game.

Might as well let the cat out of the bag, so the spectators can play along:
Rynam is Merlin, and he's made that fact painfully obvious. Which is fine, when the game lasts twenty minutes and then you're on to the next one. Not so fine in this format. Good is generally playing pretty well, but defeat is all but assured. Losing should always be a team effort in forum Mafia.
