RULES

Gameplay

1. Votes or unvotes must be bolded.
2. You may unvote or change your vote at any time before the final vote count is posted. However, once a lynch occurs, no further vote changes will count.
3. A lynch occurs when a majority of the players votes to lynch someone.
4. After a lynch occurs, all players (including the lynched player) may talk until I post the final vote count.
5. If a majority hasn't been reached by deadline, or if a majority VTNLs, the DP will end in a no-lynch.
6. Submit night actions via your PM.
7. DPs have a deadline of 72 hours. NPs have a deadline of 24 hours.

Player Conduct

1. Don't C/P anything from your role PMs into the game. Paraphrasing is fine.
2. Don't talk about the game outside the thread or mod-sanctioned PMs.
3. Don't post in the game thread after you die and have been flipped.
4. Play to your win condition.
5. Violating one of these rules will result in a modkill.

Other

1. If you are asking me a question in the DP, please bold it.
2. Please try to maintain civil conduct.
3. Please try limiting quote pyramids. They clutter the game, making it more difficult to read.
4. Anything not covered here will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

The mafia may continue to talk in their designated PM after death.

No worries. I have quite a bit of free time and I expect I'll be easy to read.

Why Geo? Skep is doing literally the same thing he did last game posting elsewhere but hasn't responded to my vote. If he's town, I want him in the game and contributing.

I just figured after everything that went on last game, getting an early read on Geo might be useful but if it seems Skep is going to be inactive again we can pressure him.

It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

On mobile so i cant bold my text, but I think wagoning Geo is a good idea. I want to get an early read on him so i can get it out of the way, and I dont end up stuck on it like last game.

It is questionable that Skep has opened the game up nearly the exact same way though. Unless he expands on it further Ill still be suspicious.

I have a two early townreads: Obi and Tenebris. Obi is probably town for the pressure on Geo. I didn't find Geo particularly more readable when he was under pressure but Obi's thought process of finding someone he thinks would be scumread and placing attention on them to get that read out of the way feels pro-active and townish.

Interestingly enough, I actually have a decent idea why Skep might have voted Obi if he's town but I want to see other thoughts first.

Tenebris is a slightly weaker read. I agree with both of his stances so far although its weak because Obi and I had already given reasoning so it's possible he could just have been following the crowd. His slight townread on FT makes sense if he's learning from FT's read on Teddy last game and picking up on early towntells to progress the game.

Skep is being suspicious again with votes without reasoning and no other posts apart from this. I'm not going to take any chances in this game. I want to see more activity from Skep so I can assess him properly but until then I'm keeping pressure on him.

early town read on F-16, his proactive approach and leadership mirror last game pretty closely so far.

Geo and Skep's early behaviour is once again suspicious although seeing as Geo was still town last game, the focus on Skep from others seems justified. I'd like to see if he offers a justification for his vote and if his thoughts line up with whatever it is F-16 claims to be thinking about it.

Obi is scummy for being sycophantic in a way that he wasn't last DP.

Geo is scummy as well, and Torton is being very hesitant in a way that noob scum would be right after being lynched DP1 in the last game.

Lol. The only reason I'm not voting you is because you proved last game that you will propose anti-town things as town.

Please elaborate.

I don't know about Geo after the scummy behavior as town last DP. I think that it's natural that Torton is being a bit hesitant around his posts because he obviously doesn't want to say anything that'll get him lynched (regardless of whether he's scum or town).

I think at this point his activity is okay, I think he needs Obi to respond to him first atm.

I'm hoping for more activity from Torton and TheFlex at the moment too.
