The proclaimed master SDK,
So astut, and sharp of wit,
To err so frequently begs suspicion
Is it malice or mere ignorance
Take then a vote for your demise
As a compliment to your normal high value
Yet the stalker met his prey
And death, that unyielding beast,
Reveals the truth of the lynch
And knowing such that SDK
Pointed light at true darkness
we value his counsel still
And call him friend.
BoomFrog starts the game busy, which is fine. Those things he does chime in on are generally okay to start as well.
Eventually we get BoomFrog's first reads list
. Most of his reads make sense. Others, not as much.
- freezeblade is "in the townie club" - why?
I see what others miss
A fool is no concern to kings
My guts were right about JimBob
Trust them then, though you are reserved,
reserve spilling them to the floor.
- I am on the townie side of neutral despite being referred to as "a man of low character". Throughout the Day, I continually slide further and further towards scum while it seems others generally agree that I am becoming more townie if anything (as is my usual course, I suppose).
I recall a recent story where,
a man such as you was proclaimed King of town,
at last he was the wickedest of all.
It is my charge then to remember,
And ensure history's cycle is not too swift,
to bring us to that same cursed fate.
- His read (and vote) on Znirk struck me as out of place. At the time, I immediately went back to read Znirk's one post to find where he was "digging in the mud", and found nothing. He explains shortly after that Znirk was attacking LaserGuy for faulty reasons, but unless he suspected Znirk was neutral, that doesn't jive with his own read on LaserGuy as mafia.
Overall though, no big deal.
I could not make the words more plain,
but quoting is so awkward now,
as I recall the words I can,
LaserGuy had much to melign him,
but not that which of Znirk spoke.
Making znirk's suspicions still bizarre
And new Sabrer has much to reframe.
BoomFrog was also reading jimbob as scum. When asked for reasons (on his jimbob, LaserGuy and Znirk reads), BoomFrog replied with this
. His reason was that jimbob tricked him last game, then comes down strongly on jimbob for bugging him about his reads when jimbob shared those reads of LaserGuy and Znirk. This pings me not only because he didn't answer the question, but because this is again inconsistent with any scumteam that could be forming in BoomFrog's mind. He's not actually hunting scum (and shortly thereafter calls jimbob town).
The seed of truth in this pile,
I did indeed not consider a specific fellowship,
Such things are rarely apparent
So early on this stage.
BoomFrog's next reads list
calls me scum, presumably buddies with LaserGuy? I was voting LaserGuy at the time.
Between the two I thought one scum,
But as you said, not both,
The conflict was too real.
Anyway, he gives some reasons for his suspicion of me, but nothing there didn't exist before - all the meat of it is regarding my first post. I asked him a question
about my recent content (since clearly something must have changed his mind, right?), but received no answer despite him commenting on my Madge read in her defense (so he must have read the post).
What you lacked was hunting scum,
which you then supplied just after then,
but again I will say to all,
I will no longer advise the wicked,
on the manner they betray themselves.
Then there's his "in case of my death" post, which isn't really a scummy thing to do, but does not consider DethStalker being scum as even an option. BoomFrog is voting for DethStalker at this time.
The vote for DethStalker was not for death,
but to preserve the life of Madge,
would she live another day,
to use her power in the night,
and better serve the town,
then a wretched fool who can't be understood.
DethStalker's is a happy chance,
But was it luck or wit to happen upon this result?
Overall, I see a lot of reasons to believe BoomFrog is scum, and nothing to make me believe he is town. Someone mentioned that he's being more helpful this game, but I don't even see that - he's being less direct and less earnest in his scumhunting, and that's the key here. Maybe I should have pushed this yesterday instead of Madge. In any case, I do believe DethStalker is likely town, especially if BoomFrog is scum, so I'd rather do this. I realize deadline is in an hour, but if you like this case, make your vote. Since a tie just initiates an extension, there is no risk.
In light of day DethStalker is revealed,
If the horse stumbles the wagon follows,
If the wagon pulls is the horse born back?
Perhaps being direct doesn't suit
an enthusiastic fool.
