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

Hmm, I thought I'd made it clear I was sunfish. All day I was picturing this beautiful bio-luminescent Crystal Jellyfish glowing in a bowl, all by itself. . . but I guess nothing about you is ever really crystal clear. :) @bessie: If the lynch is not you/Vic today, are you willing to claim a target...

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

Bessie, my fishbowl choice is with Vicarin, not you. Sorry :( heury, that’s quite all right. I just want everyone to commit before the day is over. Voting is preferred, but not absolutely necessary. Though picking a bowl is required. Wam, Bessie feels a need to help and give advice to newbies and w...

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

The reason it's good for town to vote is to make their preferred lynch obvious. I think I had made my position damn clear and therefore don't see the issue. But not everyone else has made their position clear. And if Vicarin is at L-2 they don’t need to, and can hide behind the excuse of not wantin...
