Yeah, I'll admit that I'm a little hesitant to cast doubts on someone, but I'm also feeling more constrained by newbishness. I'm having a hard time recognizing who scum might be.
I guess I need to cash in on the town goodwill from night 1 before it decays too badly. Just sitting and waiting for something to happen probably won't cause anything to happen a la Cewyn's lucky lynch.
I thought you checked franconp for real, so I'm actually really glad you've let me know that wasn't a thing that happened.
I'll also give you some rationale for picking you night two.
After Zubz' flip, you're a confirmed role cop and pretty much a confirmed town. If you made it to tonight I figured I might be able to get some insights on your past target(s), confuse any watcher remaining to protect any doctor targeting you, and to maybe learn about your next target.
Seeing as you're down to one shot, I'm uncertain about whether you want to let it ride and see if you last another day or burn it now.
I am curious... do you get the read back the same night or at day's start? If you get it back that night I can ensure your check makes it even if you don't.
I get it back ASAP as soon Crimson sees it in his inbox, probably.
Also, I'm going to throw you under the bus Tomorrow and reveal you in order to further cement the perception of my skill, terribly sorry

Honestly I'd be more surprised if you didn't try to leverage knowing my role to your advantage somehow.
I'm not going to go through my whole dumb alignment spiel again, but I'm town. Maybe stupid town, but town. Cewyn was blind luck. Trying to save Zubz was a massive risk that could have easily backfired on me if he was mafia, but the weird pattern of you two. Trying to slam Launchpad felt like the right move, and though he played more town day 3 that ending comment of his was just... strange.
I get it back ASAP as soon Crimson sees it in his inbox, probably.
I think you're jerking my chain, but that's actually sort of interesting. I figured it would be at night's end so something like a roleblocker or Cewyn's switching powers would interfere with it and Crimson would have to confirm any interaction.
Even better. Invite either CornBurrito, Fat4All or Kalor next
Trying to let a potential mafia know there are forces beyond their control? I'm taking for granted that you're town because you as mafia is both too sick a play (no offense, I know you strive for sick plays) and life threatening to my person. With one of those three is my target, and I'm strongly considering among them, then I'll attempt to be a bit more probing with their roles.
Corn and Kalor were already setting off alarms for me, but Fat hasn't really done anything for me. I guess in retrospect, Fat's kind of just been in a corner chiming in on occasion. And he was 6th on the Kark train, for however much that's worth.

Okay, so I doubt this may come up with how much the mafia likely wants you dead, but would you like to work out a system for suggesting/discussing Gossip Invitees in the context of the greater thread?
I could fall back to quoting someone and making a bird pun or reference to show intent to invite that night. This was my system Pre-Zubz (PZ).
It'd probably be better if you thought up your own response code, or even if you don't want to bother with it at all. You may not want to risk drawing an extra link if you're going to throw me under the bus.
Speaking of, if you're going to do that should I try to take the fight back to you to see who falls on what side? We're both considered fairly town aligned (probably you more than me), and it might be telling to see who falls where on the Neck/Blarg/No opinion scale. I'm also good with playing it cool if you want to work your magic solo. I would just respond as I would normally, instead.

I think Blarg was signaling to me to invite Launch (Now Sorian) tonight? My own suggestion was Melon ("crow from the rooftops" post). He appears to be using his last investigate tonight, but I'll have to see if I can divine who he is planning to target. "Vulture" was the key there, methinks. Maybe he investigated Launch last night, actually. Launch never dies and dances?
Yeah, regardless of if you're scum or not I plan to treat you as town. The existence of this chat is the main thing to get across to any scum who end up here.
Know anything you post here will be readable for future invitees. Roleclaiming is your choice, but doing so opens up risks as well as opportunities. Blarg covered for me being vanilla, but knowing my role makes it look like he has more shots than he actually does if he needs to.
I'll take invitation suggestions at any time, as I was almost late with Blarg last night phase.

What're your thoughts on acohrs' action to hang the vote? That seems like a either a desperate scum/neutral move or a misguided town power role move. I imagine a vanilla would've just eaten it rather than force a tie...

I suppose, but it just delays that judgment by another day. Guess it'll be something to talk about after a slow day.
My head might end up on the block. Maybe I should've voted for kitsunelaine instead, but as a noob I'm more willing to believe her follow the leadering, since that feels like what I'm doing sometimes...

I've just gone through much of acohrs' posts day 2 & 3 and... I'm not exactly concrete-sure anymore. Mid stream vote placements on Zubz and Kark I think? Much of that read is bleeding in from Blarg, I think... and his reasons are harder to scrutinize.
I'm fearful I may have not done enough to justify my vote today. I felt wayyy more strongly about the Launch vote and eventually faltered on that too, even if I never switched off of him.
Maybe the hung vote isn't totally bad if I've rethought this.
On D1, wee avoided a lynch of Cewyn and voted for some rando. Scum typically splits their votes. I imagine at most maybe 1 scum voted for Cewyn. Meaning the rest spread to random people. Wee fits that bill. Granted, so do I.
D2, wee avoided lynching Zubz and claimed he didnt feel Zubz was scum. Which is... baloney imo. Zubz was super fucking scummy. Wee tried to gain town points by saying "oh see I didnt go for an easy lynch on Zubz" but the reason he was so confident Zubz would be town is because he KNEW Zubz was town.

I happen to hit the spirit of those criteria as well!
I could have started the Cewyn push as a bus that went out of control and Just Made the best of it. I, on-record in this thread, picked Blarg d2 instead of Zubz to try and hang the vote. It failed due to the overwhelming numbers for Zubz, but I'm a sucker for a gambit which is pretty easy to scum read.
Why wee over me, then? General thread feeling? Newbie forbearance? That seems to be fading for kistunelaine.
