OoC post because I'll be busy today and likely won't be able to put in another. This'll probably be pretty rambly because I'm doing it quick and I have a lot of things to cover.
Okay, so when I read Elyvorg's post I thought she was casting a fair amount of sus on Chibi, but now witnessing everything it seems like there's just general misinterpretation going around? Idk, honestly, the whole discussion about this feels kind of irrelevant to me. I'm not sure discussing all the nuance of such a plan helps Town at all. It feels pretty good faith from Chibi, because again if we're not voting anyone our options for info-gathering is very limited grumble grumble okay I'll shut up about that now.
Now I feel like going over this game's roleclaims/softclaims, namely Jesse's, Dragonfree's, Elyvorg's, and DawningWinds. I believe DW, so yeah. I do think that neither Jesse nor Dragonfree have a specific claim to innocence after their roleclaims. Like someone pointed out, some roles could be scum or Town, and after everything my thinking is individually either of them could still be guilty, but not them both? idk. Elyvorg, I guess there's no reason she couldn't be lying, but I feel like her particular claim has too much of a counterclaim if there's an innocent Bulletproof? She's not DawningWind level, but I trust her more after the roleclaim.
(Oh right, I've been hinting around a role I may or may not have. Lol, I kind of had a plan for that but things kinda turned whoops. I'll still roleclaim if needed, but for now... eh, lemme just say that I don't think Townies should regard me too highly for now. Mafia, I know you're reading this. You could try to snipe me tonight but should you? Hmmm... might wanna think about that.)
don't be salty regarding the lack of lynches don't be salty regarding the lack of lynches -- OKAY now how should we go about finding scum? I'm thinking there are two particular behaviors I'm going to be eying. First of all, I said I trusted DW, so which players still were sussing her hmmmmmmm. From my notes, there's Seren, Flyg0n, Dragonfree, and maybe Namo but maybe he was just saying the Arsonist could be read as town. (Sorry, don't have much time to look over everything, so maybe someone can clarify.)
Also, we possibly maybe have a Roleblocker around, so look around for people who seemed to be role-hunting. Which, like, that leads again to Seren. Le sigh, I'm guessing I'm keeping my vote on him, though honestly it's more whatever for me now because I doubt anything's going to come of whatever I do. Have other people seemed to role-hunting, uh kinda Jesse maybe? Please tell me if there are others, sorry--I'm doing this real quick and I'll look over the whole thread again at night.
Quick impressions of the players. I'll restate the inactive, who are necessarily neutral:
Bench -- only RPing
Del -- inactive, stated they were busy
Fusion -- inactive, stated they were busy
Navar -- Hasn't posted
Mellow -- only posted once to tell people to calm down
Phantump -- only posted once to RP, then another quickie.
Then I have players who I kind of group together. These ones are less experienced (as far as I know), are no-lynch, and most of them sus or sussed me lol
I said that Seren's the most sus of all of these, but they all feel kind of new, kind of playing lowkey which would be in-character for newcomers, but y'know.
Then we have the rest, whom I'll also list:
Chibi Pika (Lexx)
Of these, the two other people who seemed willing to lynch are Inkedust and Windskull. Windskull, I've played with before. And I feel like they've been pretty helpful, don't really strike me as different from in their innocent game. They’re targeting an inactive, which eh. On day 1, this day in particular, there appears just to be a lot of people unavailable, including Navar. I’d rather target someone who’s been doing stuff. Then there’s Inke, whom I’ve never played with before and who seems willing to lynch, but hasn’t done so yet. I’d like to see them cast a vote, or just list who they think seems scummy.
Others. My general vibes are that Jesse feels like they're trusting certain players too easily but is wayyyy observant; I’ve never played with them, so. And I feel like Chibi and Dragonfree and Elyvorg are going after each other for kinda frivolous reasons? Idk, maybe it’s I’m misreading more suspicion into other people’s statements. I kind of like DF and Elyvorg’s general reasoning and contributions are pretty okay. I don’t agree with everything, but each make good points--just kind of their priorities I don't like. Chibi seems maybe less active than usual? Namo also doesn’t feel like he’s contributing too much, more so than Chibi. I think if I had to choose one person from this pile it would be Namo now, but I feel like the alignments of the roleclaimers are going to get clearer as time goes on, in one way or the other.
