They already submitted a kill.
and Nat is planning a claim, but not bulletproof/commuter. Commuter wouldn't work anyway, he'd have to answer why he didn't counter claim Sorian immediately. Unless he claimed "scum reading Sorian" as a forbidden action or something.
I can't remember who's next in line for lynch... Could be Stan? Could be Ty v Sorian if they leave them both alive, but that seems risky...
Maybe this will be a no kill night... But I think that would look bad on Natiko. There's literally no reason for him to survive. I don't remember who pointed out that he hasn't claimed yet but it was a good play. Makes him even more of a potential threat to scum and therefore even more suspicious when he survives.
If town take their time tomorrow then Natiko could be in trouble. I know Flux is further up people's scum lists but he's in a good position to win this.
Might be the guy who's been trying to get people to claim their FAs... ;_;. It makes absolutely zero sense for Natiko to still be alive if he's town. But no killing would be a dreadful idea imo, it could give validity to Sorian's commuter claim. But I'd love to see Sorian v Natiko and see who has the stronger pull.
Oh, I guess no kill, Nat claims some form of bulletproof/commute, lynch Sorian. That would likely work with Ty being in such a deep tunnel.
Him counterclaiming a commute would be suspect after Sorian's claim and he'd need a good FA to go with it, same with claiming bulletproof. I could see Natiko claim some sort of tracker ability and say he saw Ty/Sorian move instead, again a good FA is needed.
Staying active and part of the conversation is the most useful thing scum can do now. Leaving Sorian and Ty to figure out stuff on their own is the worst possible outcome.
Scum may not have a choice, both are busy with work or IRL responsibilities and they're giving it their best right now.
They should have taken Sorian out earlier, Ty can bounce ideas off of him and they can both get to the same conclusion after a while. If it was just Ty they may have been able to let him run off with his own crazy ideas and just push him down that path to a mislynch. With another strong Townie out there Scum need to drive a wedge between the two but I'm not sure if they will be able to at this point...
Who they should be looking at right now is Star. If they can get her on their side then they can win, it won't matter what Ty/Sorian think.

This is quite a Day
StarSketch is the wildcard here; while Sorian and Ty are licking each other's eyes in, Nat and Flux's best bet is to not engage Sorian directly. Sidle up to Ty4on, provoke Star with anti-Sorian teases and remarks. Double-down on the slipperiness of his Commuter-claim, but don't poke Sorian directly

Also, crucial now that Nat and Flux gotta slap each other a bit, now is the time to ham it up with some j'accuse theatre. They need a bit of between-banter more than ever now to avoid that mutual avoid look
sprinkle it between the Ty sidling and the Star haunting and they'll have a shot at Sorian

another tactic would be to have Natiko disengage entirely, have Flux bunker down with a bit of dialogue EXCLUSIVELY with Ty4on, then have himself disengage for the Day-end too; in the end, leaving Town with a high likelihood of self-cannibalization in the absence of a climactic fight, probably

If I were Flux, I'd be poking Ty with "Are you just gonna follow Sorian like that" "Are you just gonna do whatever he says like that" "Are you just gonna discuss this with Sorian like that" "Are you just gonna let Sorian get away with that" "Are you just gonna allow Sorian to take the game like that" "Are we just gonna let Natiko get away with what Sorian and Blarg were accusing him of" "What about you, Ty4on" "What do you think about Sorian's claims the past few Days" "Ty4on, how do we know you're Town" "How do you feel about me, Ty4on" "Who do you think we should vote for" "How do we know if this is the right decision" "What do you think about Natiko so far" "I say we should vote against Natiko" "I think we can take Sorian's word for it" "His claims were fine, his reasoning for it plausible as Town" "What has Natiko done for us compared to Sorian" "I'm not saying that Sorian's not scum, but I'm thinking more and more that Natiko is" "If Natiko's not scum, then who is" "But think about Sorian's claim in the light of StarSketch's Override of Blarg" "I don't know, I was just thinking about all possibilities" "We don't know if Sorian was lying about any of it or not, just like with what happened with Blarg, and look where that got us" "If I vote against Natiko, who will you vote for" "I'm not convinced myself that Natiko is scum, given how Sorian's played alongside him and is now railing against him despite his earlier stance" "It's convenient that Sorian's saying that now, when you consider how he acted around Natiko before" "Sorian, I know you explained that before, and I'm saying that we have to consider how it looks to Natiko if he's Town" "Natiko, what do you think" "We have to vote soon" "I'm not sure what Starsketch is going to be doing, but I'm going to vote soon" "Ty4on, any final thoughts on all this?" "I'm voting now, I think that Sorian's been playing to an agenda this whole game, it shows in his claims and his heel-turn on Natiko after the Blarg fiasco, so I'm voting Sorian"

lol okay so I know this is gonna sound sooo self-absorbed and Halo: Reaching, like, even more than my usual, but here goes:
There could be the slightest possibility that Town-aligned StarSketch might feel a little guilt over killing Town-aligned me with her Override; so, Natiko could capitalize on this possibility as a potential advantage to scum, by INDIRECTLY bringing the subject of me back up again via MAKING SORIAN RESURRECT ME MORE AS A CHAT SUBJECT.
If Natiko can somehow goad Sorian into being the one who fully digs up my corpse to wield as a tell-weapon, Star might NOT want to express support for Sorian the individual who dredged up said subject of her now-proven-to-be wrong move, as that very act of his subtly reaffirms her as "having acted anti-Town" in the past; so, rather than be open to discussing with Sorian what happened to dear Blarg in reference to Natiko, she might either get generally defensive about it (which would be in scum Nat/Flux's favour, as that's a narrative path against her they could push for elimination) and/or be willing to discuss her reasoning for it, BUT AGAINST Sorian the bringer-upper instead of having it merely being a cordial conversation piece between the two of them, if it had been brought up by anyone else. From there, Nat/Flux might be able to persuade StarSketch to vote against Sorian in the interest of her own self-preservation, thereby sealing the scum Win.
Either way, this move (influencing Sorian himself to bring Blarg up again) could highly likely fold StarSketch into the Final Day discussion in a way that pits her as a fighter on the 'vs. Sorian' side of it, rather than the 'vs. Natiko' side of it, IMO
