Re: Wheel of Time 3 - A Divided Sisterhood (D3)

Madge had both known scum in her scum pile, which makes her look very good. I'm going to go ahead and admit that I am a jailer. I jailed LaserGuy on N1 as a reasonable town read. I jailed Sabrar N2. Thus, if we're worried about a cult (and so don't want to lynch an admitted scum member), we do have ...

Re: Wheel of Time 3 - A Divided Sisterhood (D3)

My role PM is very similar to heury's. However, mine does not explicitly say that I will cop as non-town. As such, my guess that I might be a miller appears to be false. I find it interesting that wam was not a "true traitor", despite being in a different faction than town. That strongly i...

Argh. This thing is getting away from me. My surety about the proper boxes for Vicarin and Bessie is pretty eroded at this point. While sanities are not guaranteed, I doubt that we are secretly in a Dethy-like game where there are a whole lot of sanities floating around. Sabrar feels a little funny ...

LaserGuy's analysis of the bessie/Vicarin situation resonates with me more than the other arguments I've seen brought forth. I really don't like the fact that both have claimed identical flavor, but bessie had set up that claim before Vicarin claimed it, which I think is in bessie's favor. Unless sh...

I am thinking that Vicarin is looking worse than bessie in this exchange. But that's mostly gut feeling.

Re: Wheel of Time 3 - A Divided Sisterhood (D2)

does it make sense for town and scum to each have one?

BoomFrog's point about moody giving up -- I don't remember him acting that way, but then I dropped out for a few months. If it's the case, then I will accept the moody lynch.

My wincon is fulfilled with one non-me vote on 2/3 of the days in which I am not lynched. (One day + NK on N1 is a win; one day + Nk on N2 is a loss; two days and lynch on D3 is a win).

Of course a strongman would likely not have carried out the kill on night two, as they knew that there was an even-night tracker. (Since fruit had been claimed on D2, mafia knew the exact setup at that moment.)
