Right, so let's take a look at this ghostliness then:
bio wrote:Hello, this is your friendly neighborhood soon-to-be-actually-dead ghost. Happily, I get to send some messages out before I'm completely gone. If you are town like I hope you are, I encourage you to post this message verbatim in thread.
My role was one-shot vig ghost. (I am town. I was comfortable playing an insane person because I knew I could be useful dead, too.) I killed Krong. I also had a one-shot message power. After I use this message, I will be completely dead.
This was apparently sent through the mod right, so this means she would obviously have been online to deal with this. However, we haven't had any flavour along the lines of b.i.o walking off into the sunset, and his name is still very much not crossed out on the player list.
I know in previous amy games her ghosts haven't been limited to one-shot kills - I think I'm right in saying whackabananna had a ghost that could kill every night after they died. I wouldn't be at all surprised if b.i.o was very much still around and able to influence this game.
I had no night talking ability, and have not talked to anyone at night, so I believe that GoP is lying about receiving information about me, which suggests to me that he's likely scum, but I'm not 100% sure. He's second on my list. (webby and greenlover are third and fourth, respectively.)
So b.i.o encounters a claim he believes to be utterly false, and an attempt to frame him... and he's unsure of that player's alignment? Weird.
At the top of my scum list is Misnomer. I'd put *very* good odds on Misnomer being scum right now. Probably sapphire scrooge, like Krong and weiy.
So I'm more scummy than the person who you believe has falsely accused you of being guilty? This has better be good.
He agreed with Krong when Krong was making terrible arguments,
...erm, this never actually happened.
Seriously, I've looked back through my posts and can't find a single thing the remotely resembles me agreeing with Krong's 'terrible arguments'. The closest I can come up with is a post in which I say Krong's roleclaim sounds believable - but believing a claim and agreeing to an argument are two fundamentally different things. At any rate, I stick by my decision at the time - Krong's claim was
believable, and I was by far not the only one to accept it.
and didn't like my vote for weiy.
That's because it was entirely based upon a variant of "3rd vote = scum" logic, which as I've said before, is an utterly discredited form of scumhunting. A meta-analysis of me will reveal that I always reject votes like that one.
And then he did a "yay town" thing when I killed Krong and Krong turned up scum.
Oh, well next time something like that happens, I guess I'd better remain utterly poker-faced and not even comment on the fact that our position has spectacularly improved, right?
This is yet another discredited form of scumhunting. Yes, occasionally you can pick scumtells off of reactions to unexpected night events, but only when they tend to be suspiciously specific (eg. yay, congrats roleblocker for hitting scum!). Thinking you can find scum by jumping on every smiley face is just plain dumb.
I suggest lynching Misnomer.
b.i.o's case against me is laughable. It is based upon next to nothing, and yet he calls for my lynch over the person who he claims is lying about recieving chat logs? I don't have a clue what b.i.o is up to, but it can't be good.
Even if I'm lying about being town and am actually scum on the other side, this is a good move for everybody except misnomer (assuming I'm right about him being scum). Every other faction benefits from killing someone who's scum today, since it means one less kill tonight.
As I said earlier, I am not at all sure that we can take b.i.o's word that he'll now simply fade away. He's got some sort of sinister motive here in pointing the lynch at me (or away from somebody else?), albeit one which eludes me at present. He's wrong about the kill though - I don't have one, either at a personal or factional level.
I'm amazed that greenlover's taken b.i.o's orders unquestioningly. I don't know if he thought it would help reduce the chances of a lynch on him (how's that working out for you?) or whether he's just looking for a chance to completely abdicate responsibility for the fate of the game. Regardless, it's not changed my opinion on him.
I don't trust b.i.o one bit, so if anything this has strengthened my belief in GoP's claim. My opinion on Webby is therefore also unchanged.
"But Misnomer!" I hear you cry, "If you think Webby is scum, then surely if you're town your self-preservation shouldn't be important and you should still be voting for him?"
And indeed, you would be right: if I was town, this would be the case. Except I'm not town, I'm a survivor - and self-sacrifice is a luxury I cannot afford.Claim: The Farmer
'sup folks, remember me? I was the one who caused all that fun back on Day 1 (and don't tell me seeing Roband impersonate a sheep wasn't fun). And I'll let you into another little secret: I've already gained a win.
My role is that of a survivor, but I had the opportunity to gain a win by other means. As soon as the game begun, I was able to force another player to act like an animal. If another player than guessed that player's animal, both myself and my target would gain a half-win. I could do this twice to gain a full win in total.
There was a snag however - once a player was released from the spell, they were told that I was the one who had done it to them in the first place. The idea was therefore that it would quickly splash me with so much wine that I would struggle to pull off the second half-win, let alone a survival to the endgame. As for why exactly Roband and Mav didn't out me, I have no idea - it'll be something we have to ask once the game's over.
But yeah, this is the endgame we now find ourselves in. I wouldn't be at all surprised if we're at 1-1-1-1, plus whatever those ghosts are up to. This could get messy...
