Welcome to scum voting Thread. Notice that I didn't say chat. First of all there will be no talking in this channel during day phases, at all. Second. At night you will only be putting forward and voting on targets to kill. There is no need to select someone to perform the kill. You are not to discuss your reasoning for your targets. You are not to discuss anything else. As usual, editing posts is not allowed. Good Luck, Have Fun.

anyway, hello everyone! I am your resident Godfather, Sawneeks of Londor. \o/
I asked squidy and we are allowed to chat pre-game but after that we'll be locked out. Stan has said this will be his first rodeo but what about you, Isaac?
Us not having a chat really, really sucks and takes away one of the best parts of being Scum but thankfully having all roles obscured upon death works very well in our favor. Town won't know if they hit correctly or not despite getting some numbers but seeing as it's every other Day Phase that means they will never really be able to get a 100% conformation via deduction.
I also do have a bit of a gambit-y idea we can take advantage of should one of us come into the line of fire and seems to be on their way out. Since there is no confirmation when you die, fake claiming in this game is going to be VERY easy to do. If you are both up for it, I suggest that IF one of us comes under fire and looks to be the lynch candidate for that Day Phase that person should fake claim Doctor or Cop. Either you get counter-claimed by the REAL Cop/Doctor ( which is good since we can then murder them ) or everyone ends up believing you and you live. Since there are no roles on death, even should the real Cop/Doctor die you wouldn't be in harms way since Town would be none the wiser. This also means we'll probably always be terrified of a Doctor/Cop since we won't know when they die but...you take some, you lose some. What do you guys think? You'd honestly be surprised how some people buy ridiculous fake claims...
let me type of the ol' scum mantra and then let's get as much discussion as we can before the game starts. Questions, comments, ideas, etc. etc.
2. Never, ever, ever be afraid to scum read or vote on your teammates. Here we may able to lax this rule just a bit since we skip confirmations on death ( only really on Odd Numbered Day Starts ) and you can't be traced back to your own posts. However, it's always better to be safe than sorry so if you see something scummy about one of our posts don't be afraid to call it out. If we made a mistake and Town catches us and pushes for us, don't be afraid to bandwagon it. Some people have different views on bussing but I think, if the need arises, this will be one of the harder things to pull off since we are without communication.
3. Scum hunt, ask questions, be involved. Town is trying to solve the game as best they can and will be looking for others to do the same. One of the best pieces of advice I got was this: play as your Town-self would. Don't lie unless it puts your teammates in danger or it puts yourself in danger. If you're reading the thread and Hey_Monkey says something that doesn't make sense, call it out. If you're reading the thread and think I said something scummy, call it out. Follow your logic and what makes sense; lapses with in-thread logic and not looking like you're trying to solve the game have been some of the biggest reason I've seen people be scum read for.
4. Don't use Ultra Greatswords.
5. Remember, Town has no confirmations on death. As the game goes on Town will likely grow less and less certain of themselves without anything solid and we can use this to our advantage. Try not to get discouraged - we are still a team. We may not be able to actively chat and shit talk...but we'll be doing it in spirit. <3
again, if you have any questions or ideas throw them out now. Day Start will sneak up on us pretty fast and after that we can't communicate.
Figured we could have a back-up plan should things go south but it's really only a last-minute, 'it's Day End and there's no way I'm living I have like 6 votes on me' kinda thing. If it's early in the Day Phase we can try talking people out of your lynch if anything before going straight to a claim tho.
Since I think I'm in a completely different timezone than both of you, what do you guys think of setting up a NK vote system or something like it? Something like, 'if you agree with the NK, submit the same name. If you don't agree, submit a different name.' We can maybe even set up a hierarchy of who we want to be killed to make it easier to decide on the target. Night Phase starts and you come in here and submit 2 or 3 kill commands and that can be your 'who I think we should NK from most to least' and we can decide from there....?
honestly i'm just spitballing ideas at this point
we can even create a Blarg Cipher like Pokemon Mafia if we want an attempt at some sort of communication.
I don't really care how many people you put forward for killing in total, it's up to you to find a consensus target. I'm not putting a strict format rule on this in the hopes of making it simpler. Additionaly it's also ok to express opposition to a kill target in order to move discussion forward.
