I'm not really sure how to answer that. I can't make up for Gopher's lurking. I feel that huery has been been a whole heap of scummy, including the vote voodoo that is a pet peeve of mine.

I am quite surprised no one has guessed yet why I wanted Laserguy alive (before I realized he flipped scum). Anyone that figures it out instantly gets town points!

Pickinh up where I left off: the other mafioso either abstained or bussed their mate. The former case means GoP (now moody7277) is likely the other scum, as we all agree on Peaceful Whale (now adnap) being town.
The bus case means mafia is in {bessie, mpolo and Sabrar}. I don't think scum!Sabrar would have switched to LaserGuy instead of lynching town!mpolo, which makes him fairly townie. Mpolo voted on LaserGuy fairly early, when both LG and heury were at L1. I think he could've waited before placing a vote (or even abstain), which makes the bus scenario less likely. Bessie voted mpolo before unvoting to break the tie and then voted LaserGuy at the last minute. She could have voted mpolo to save LaserGuy, but doing so would have made her suspicious (BoomFrog and Sabrar switched to LaserGuy). It seems plausible, that scum!bessie decided on the other option to avert suspicion.

I remember you saying, that even you thought your remarks about Sabrar look scummy, but I'm guessing you have something else in your mind.

It's obviously a danger of these random chat pairings that one of the two could be non-town. I guess heury has claimed to be one of two roles, albeit indirectly.

The comment makes me feel a little better about heury, because someone in scumchat with LaserGuy might easily forget that he was also in "neighbor/lover" chat.

On the other hand, somitomi is actively trying to convince us that he is an asset to town with a reasonable argument. Those left voting for me, though are somitomi, heuristically_alone, and LaserGuy. Of these, somitomi seems the more likely scum. The possiblity of a non-voter being scum is also there. Those are adnapemit (very likely town) and moody (née GopherofPern), but we don't have enough participation to choose from on him.

heuristically_alone, we all know you had chat with LaserGuy, but as mpolo pointed out, there are two types of chat in this game. Do you know why your continuing refusal to claim looks suspicious?

Sabrar wrote:@bessie: please point out to me which part of my content you mistook for 'wanting to end the day early'. My early vote on somitomi was mainly intended to get a reaction and I was successful in doing so. That doesn't mean I don't want to talk it out.
I was not trying to imply that you wanted to end the day early. I was trying to imply that you do not want to discuss heuristically_alone. Why did you take discussing heuristically_alone off the table today? And so that we have no misunderstanding, I am referring to this:

Sabrar wrote:@bessie: do you think that this is all just distancing?
What makes you think it is out of LaserGuy’s repertoire to bus a scum buddy?

Sabrar wrote:
bessie wrote:I’m not sure I follow you. Can you give me an example of an indicator of this in his early content?
He is first to post and immediately jumps into setup analysis while not having read the rules governing it. I think that as newbie!scum he would be much more cautious about putting himself in the spot-light.
Compare it with his opening post in MMM II (where he was SK), he posts only after discussion has already started and mentions only the flavor.
Forgot about this earlier. heuristically_alone was mafia in that game, and he had day chat.

Then I misunderstood you, a recurring occurrence.

bessie wrote:Why did you take discussing heuristically_alone off the table today?
We can talk about him all day long but we should not lynch him today and your vote on him could divide Town in this regard.

Circumstances. D1 bussing is completely different from D3 bussing.

You're right, I misremembered because he subbed out later. However this makes my point even more relevant.

Just flavor (to align with role description). Jean Grey would have two devices regardless of whether (a) Cyclops and Wolverine are in game, or (b) she had other ways to communicate.

Basically assume that those devices were on her well before the "game" started, and if either one of her communication partners isn't in game (wasn't dragged onto this planet along with the rest) the device just wouldn't work until the situation is resolved.

True, although the IRL explanation didn't work out for me before :oops:
Anyway, if we rule out heury as scum based on this vote, then (Gopher of Pern)moody7277 is the most likely to be mafia based on the above.

I am a little peeved that you are using absence of evidence to try to make your case against GoP/me. Gopher didn't write jack, so you have no idea what was going on with him.

Well, is anyone else going to vote, or is it up to me and Sabrar?

mpolo, how about some updated reads?

moody, I’m curious as to what you found interesting in my D1 analysis.

heuristically_alone, you tried to force a no lynch D1, you’ve misrepresented your D1 actions here, you probably lied here, your list here is active lurking as two of those players had already claimed (or you aren't paying attention because you already know who is scum), here is another misrepresentation/lie, you’ve done zero scumhunting D2, and you’ve been asked to claim and refused. I want to unvote just so I can vote for you again.

somitomi, I know you’re new and I appreciate that you’re trying, but your analysis reads like a summary of opinions borrowed from other peoples’ reads. You had to be pushed to scum hunt, and even now you won’t commit to a firm read on anyone. I get the feeling that you are signaling your willingness to side with scum at endgame if it benefits you (note that there’s nothing wrong with that from a gameplay point of view) but it means that you are a liability to town.

Sabrar, I'm open to switching my vote to somitomi for the above reason.

I will probably not be available tomorrow morning so if anyone wants me to respond to anything please post before 8:00 am PDT.

I am Wolverine. I Sniffed Sabrar and he visited no one nor did anyone visit him.

fos: somitomi

I agree that this is the best lynch today. Then probably moody the next. I wont be able to post much the rest of this week. Just finished a 15 hour car drive and attending a funeral then driving back 15 hours. Let me know if you have any specific questions for me because honestly I won't have time to do any detailed reads.

I don't think there's been a change since I posted it last, but let me know if I'm wrong.

Current Votals:
Somitomi - 1 (Sabrar)
Heuristically_Alone - 1 (Bessie)

If wolverine's sniff was redirected, how would his night action read? Would he get the result of the person he was redirected to but be told it was still the persin he targeted?

How would wolverive's sniff result read if he target iceman?

To (hopefully) clear this up:

Would Wolverine receive the same results in the following cases:
- Sniffing Iceman who is commuting,
- Sniffing a player who did not target anyone and was not targeted by anyone else?
