I don't even know what to think at this point...I guess if he doesn't want to play it'd be better to lynch him than someone else...

If he's quitting do we still vote for him?

EBWOP: was ninja'd and the ninja function didn't work so I was really ninja'd.

Sounds good to me then.

Yes, if Ruf or kells wants to replace him, let me know. First come, first served.

If I don't get a replacement within 24 hours it will be treated as a lynch on frogman and the day will end.

I now have a replacement lined up for if Kells and Ruf don't respond by this time tomorrow.

Sorry you are leaving us frogman, I hope my actions didn't contribute to your dislike of the game.

That's only somethign that changes with practice. No-one here expects to win every game, or even come close to it. You just have a laugh while you do it, and hopefully pick things up.

Yeah. Don't worry about competency. Or efficiency. Or winning. Or living. If any of us did, to any large degree, we would play at mafiascum. This place is "lulz and oh yeah mafia" not "I'll murder you, your family, and your future children if you screw up at lylo" Don't worry about sucking. Or screwing up. If I cared about screwing up, I wouldn't play as I did.

I think I am going to point a FoS at myrrh7x, as he has been staying under the radar a bit too effectively. With just enough posts to appear somewhat active, and agreeing with things that have already been said while not taking any major action or stepping out of line himself... that's how I would play the first day if I were scum.

I don't mean to sound too mean or anything, but I'm not contributing much at all, and won't be for the next few days.
Reasons:
Day 1 is all so jumpy. A man(or woman) gets lynched all too quickly for doing nothing.
Happens all the time.

I do not have much experience with Batman, and as it is a closed set-up, it is even harder to figure out the roles.
Flavor text being the only clue is hard to follow a lot of the time.

I am busy with midterms.
I need to study for my tests right now.

This is probably a little over the edge in terms of defense, but I've mentioned these points earlier on somewhere. I think.
Also, at the risk of sounding WIFOMy, someone is probably gonna attempt to lynch me for this.

Myrrh is always a quiet little turtle...posting thoughts here and there. I don't feel any FoSing needed personally.

Good luck on the midterms.

Okay, know what? This game is so stalled, we need to get it moving. In the interest of that, and the fact that Mattias was quite jumpy/annoyed/over-reacting earlier, I shall throw my vote on him as well. Also, Cycoden usually has good instincts and I am not suspicious of him in this game thus far.

Matthias wrote:*Reads posts*

Okie-dokie, let me just see if I've got all this straight: hopping on a bandwagon is scummy. It's day one, so if you start a vote on somebody, it's automatically unsupported by evidence, and therefore scummy. Speculating about Batman is scummy. Speculating on villain roles is okay, unless the theories are too funky--then it's muddying the waters. Scum-scummidy-doo-wop.

Note to self: everything is a scumtell. Stop doing stuff. Oh wait, lurking is a scumtell. :roll:

Day one back-and-forth banter's been going on for a week now, leading nowhere. Everybody's dancing on eggshells, and any lynch we get is going to be supported by marginal evidence at best--no matter whether day one lasts another week or another six months.

I'm going to say this again: everything is a scumtell. Without any role powers, day one provides no evidence at all, except pinging everybody's respective scumdars. Don't get me wrong, the Machiavellian analysis makes for pretty entertaining reading--I just don't think it's leading anywhere until day two, when we'll have at least some in-game data to work with.

I'm leaving my vote where it is. Why not?
This was the post I am mainly talking about. I agreed with him initially if you look at the post I made directly below his, but in going back and looking at his previous posts, I get a bad feeling when I see how much this whole game he has kinda latched on to me. He's been trying hard it seems to be buddy-buddy with me and when I saw Cycoden's post and went back and read for myself, he did seem a bit off with this post, and others have little bits in them, and seem clingy to me. I don't like this. Maybe he is town and is convinced I am town as well (and I am town) but something about it seems off. I get a heavy feeling that I am being set up for something, and I don't like that. Cycoden had an analysis post FoS'ing both me and mattias two pages back I believe, you can read that as well here viewtopic.php?f=53&t=33022&p=1311097&hilit=cycoden#p1310707 now I think after I clairified my posts as people in this game keep missreading them that helps with his issues with me. However, seeing how others are reading me, trying to look at this game as an independent observer and not me, and then reading it, I see how much mattias and I have been "alligned" so far, starting with him. And both of us are not under people's radar. So, i have a feeling either one of us is scum (and it's not me) or we both are town and scum are doing a good job of setting us up.

So... tl;dr people: mattias, when I tried re-reading this whole thing a few hours ago from an outside observer perspective, is trying to really buddy up to me, and I am not comfortable with that. He also got a bit touchy and exasperated with all the finger-pointing of day one especially in the above post I quoted of his.

...i always get somewhat nervous when bandwagons fall on my reasoning without much further discussion (other than your intriguing points, sungura). Hmm. I'll concede matthias' point that this game has been unusually difficult to make headway in, but I can't see a more promising target at this point of the game.
