You mean this, Yosuke? I didn't choose them for any particular reason. They were just 'there'.

READS ON CLARK (Underlined the important things)

Post by Sylvester S. on Fri Nov 20, 2015 2:50 pm

Clark the Conductor wrote:confirming

also can we all agree this is the best anon account in existence

Nothing to see here. He likes his name, though.

Clark the Conductor wrote:is this mafia or mathia

Not a big fan of mathia.

Clark the Conductor wrote:I really really don't understand that mini bandwagon on Sylvester S, yes his idea was pretty bad but at least he tried.

No lynch for now.

Clark claims to not support Sylvester in his actions, but sees them as being an honest attempt to help, suggesting that either he is town taking an objective view on the matter, or, less likely, a scumpartner with Sylvester trying to defend his partner's stupidity, first with lighthearted deference to the rest of the town, then trying to prevent Sylvester from facing the consequences of his actions. This also suggests that it is unlikely that Clark is mafia while Sylvester is town; he would have said that it was a scummy thing for Sylvester to do, then lynched him.
The fact that he NLed in an attempt to not have Sylvester lynched means that:
Neither of them are scum: Probable.
Sylvester is scum, Clark is not: Probable, but depends on your read of Sylvester.
Clark is scum, Sylvester is not: Very unlikely, not even worth thinking about in my opinion. (see above) There is no reason for Clark to alienate himself from the town just to save a townie from the consequences.
Both are scum: Improbable but possible, Clark would be acting much differently (maybe even bussing, though bussing this early in the game is kind of stupid).
Of course, from my point of view, I'm bound to only consider the first and third option. It is for this reason that Clark from my point of view is likely town, despite the absolutely horrible lurking.

(Side note: he's also "a RETARDED AF a**hat".)

Clark the Conductor wrote:Lara C.'s post at the start of this day bringing down Sylvester's was fucking hilarious btw 12/10 for effort 20/10 for delivery i laughed for like 20 mins ( Crying or Very sad )

i haven't been too active due to a number of reasons but ngl nobody would believe me if i posted them anyway.

I'm writing this and I haven't even looked at the lynchcount but at this point I'm against a Sylvester lynch, whilst the strategies he has proposed haven't been the best he has made an effort and offered up good ideas not math related.

You'll probably see this as me buddying with Sylvester now that it seems likely he'll be lynched today, or me trying to defend Sylvester before he goes down and flips town, while either of these points could obviously be true from your point of view, my sole reason for not wanting Sylvester lynched today is as above.

No lynch.

Crying or Very sad Again, not a big fan of mathia.
Again, defending Sylvester, but this time with some substance: that Sylvester has no offered some tangible, non-mathia ideas.
He admits this makes him seem tied to Sylvester. Wait, if he were mafia, why would he keep on doing anything that kept him tied to his scumpartner? Huh... What if he's predicting a Sylvester lynch, knowing Sylvester is town, so that he can be associated with the town martyr? That opens the door to a game full of finger-pointing and lynch controlling, if he plays his cards right. But, then again, all this is pretty far-fetched.
But he does seem pretty confident, that he knows Sylvester is town... "trying to defend Sylvester before he goes down and flips town"... Town isn't exactly known to deal with absolutes such as "I know Sylvester is going to flip town." Maybe, even more insidious, he is mafia legitimately trying to prevent town Sylvester's lynch, in order to have a likely active town pseudo-leader in his debt.

-----------------------------------------------------
Overall:
Awww, I was so sure he was town (from my point of view at least, that holds no bearing to you guys) after his third post, but all the possibilities from his fourth post just ruined it. I can say he's on a knife edge in my opinion, but definitely very dangerous. If I had to choose which way he leaned, it would be towards townie, because I don't know if Clark would think that far ahead into the game but still be a notorious lurker.
Unless he's just checking up on the situation without logging in to conceal his presence...
I won't mince words, this is hard Sad

Interactions with others:
He is undoubtedly beholden with Sylvester for some reason, whatever his actual motive is.
He, um, ignores everybody else, except for briefly acknowledging the existence of Lara.

Clark, post more for @!#%$%! sake!

Also, could you please stop talking in CAPS LOCK? It obscures meaning and makes reads more difficult. See: the guy who talked in verse the entire game one time then won as Mafia because nobody could read him.

I DISAGREE WITH IT BECAUSE THE MAFIA NIGHTKILL IS GOING TO BE ON SOMEONE WHO IS USEFUL TO TOWN LIKE MATEO INSTEAD OF SOMEONE WHO IS SCUMMY (1)
GETTING INFORMATION OFF OF THAT PERSONS INTERACTIONS - ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY COULD BE MAFIA - IS MUCH BETTER THAN GETTING INFO OFF OF A CONFIRMED TOWN SINCE WE CAN ALSO USE THE INTERACTIONS OF THAT PERSON WITH OTHERS TO HELP US WITH SCUM(2)
IN TERMS OF NIGHTKILLS, THERE COULD BE FRAMING GOING ON AND THE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN PEOPLE ARENT NECESSARILY AS GOOD AS WHEN TOWN AS A WHOLE CHOOSES THE PERSON TO DIE(3)

I AM IN NO WAY SIMILAR TO OGATA SINCE HE STATED THINGS IN A CONFUSING WAY AND IM SIMPLY YELLING WHAT I HAVE TO SAY(4)
REGARDLESS THEY WON THAT GAME BECAUSE THEY GOT LUCKY NOT BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT READ OGATA

(1) Isn't the combined activity and exchanges between all town members more important than the missed out discussion offered by any one individual, no matter how clearly towny they are? Even if we lynch, say, a town-sided Forrest, who's not to say Forrest wouldn't have finally pulled his head out of his butt and offer some words of wisdom to help us later? In fact, a failure to pull your head out of your butt and help is more of an indictment as scum than, say, doing math.
If we NL now, it is still very unlikely that both mafia are going to target the same highly-town player. This means we have a very good chance of prolonging this cool state of 2-6 bliss for loads of reading--especially failures to remove heads from butts.
On the other hand, we lynch Forrest now, oh, hey, that's cool info that he's town--just look at all the people he's talked meaningful talk with!--but it still doesn't really help us as much as, I'd predict, about two to three more days of this discussion.
If mafia manages a kill at this point, that is lucky for them. As it stands, the chance that anybody at all is killed at night is 1/6, shave it down to 1/3 for just the active people. On average, we could have three more days of these reads if we NL, and just the remainder of today if we lynch somebody. We do not need to "hurry up and lynch" as some of the yololynching n00bs in the other games so poignantly argued.
The only circumstance in which lynching today should turn out better than NLing until the mafia makes their first kill is if we win the 1/4 lottery and lynch a mafia.
About 3 days more of this stasis in which we can scumhunt is better than having a 1/4 chance of lynching a mafia, even if we can get info from a 'confirmed' dead man's words.

(2) See above. Also, they don't need to be dead for you to get information from their words and actions. That is just LAZY. Be a man and scumhunt like a man. And lazy = not good for town.

(3) I notice I am confused, and am probably misunderstanding you here--but saying 'DEMOCRACY!' and 'the whole town can choose' isn't very good support for, well, any argument.

(4) You are similar to Ogata because he said things confusingly that are difficult to read while you say things devoid of human emotion that are difficult to read. And whether or not you think that was the sole purpose for their loss (no, it wasn't) you cannot just wave off the psychological effect it surely had by saying "they got lucky".
So I would ask you to please make it easier for people to read the emotion in your voice, if you are town.

Hey, guys, heads up: I'm going to be gone for all of tomorrow. I might be there for a single pre-hammer thought. Also, my activity during D3 will be sporadic at best, nonexistent at worst, but I promise I'll try. I will be active D4.
AJ don't sub me please ;-;

Forrest G. wrote:The "announce the kill before MyLo" was a pretty obvious thing. No softclaiming kills? This changes the way I thought this would play out since I expected scumhunting to be centered around that.

I agree with Lara C. on the mathia part.

2 days deadline? Not fun.

I take slight issue with how he said "The 'announce the kill before MyLo' was a pretty obvious thing." That sounds like someone just saying a useless thing to build up their credibility with easy "Look at me, I'm so townie" points.
THIS IS A FAIR POINT
I HAVE NO IDEA ON WHETHER I COMMENTED ON THIS BEFORE OR NOT BUT I FEEL LIKE I DIDNT

Forrest G. wrote:
Lara C. wrote:

Mateo is #1 on my lynch list because of the fact that he just has that sole post;

Katie as a weak case is just that  - there wasn't much else I could do casewise;

Sylvester gets 3 because he's trying at least, but in a way that isn't townie;

Yosuke obviously needed a sub, so let's chalk her #4 spot up to lurk/inactivity;

Misato is #5 because she offered up great ideas, that while I don't necessarily agree with them, are town-lead-y in a way, so again, at least she's trying;

I do agree that Forrest should have been much higher than I put him - I simply skimmed posts when making my list. After rereading, he should definitely be at 2 or 3;

Clark, again, not much to go off of, but seemed pretty town from what he's posted so far;

And of course me. So right now, I'd be all for lynching Mateo or Forrest.

You didn't explain why I should be at 2 or 3.
Additionally, I find sylvester's "wow I didn't die" post scummy. Rookie mistakes everywhere.

Why are you upset that someone had a high scumread of you if your predecessor did literally nothing but filler, and the only post you have made prior to this was filler? You knew full well why you were 2 or 3 on her scumreads.
And as for my "wow I didn't die" post, I get the feeling you read the first paragraph but nothing else. If you had, the reason you would think it was scummy wouldn't be because of "rookie mistakes". And even then, what townie in their right mind would equate rookie mistakes with being mafia? Rookie mistakes demonstrate n00biness, not scumminess. Why didn't you make that distinction?
THIS IS ALSO A GOOD POINT
FORREST SEEMS TO BE THROWING SHADE AT OTHERS FOR NO REASON, WHICH IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING A SCUM WOULD DO

Sylvester S. wrote:
Forrest G. wrote:
Katie P. wrote:Poor Katie Perry still has no computer
I'm pretty sure deadline is soon

lynch Forrest G.

Once again
Someone please explain why I'm "scummy".

Second of all, SYLVESTER YOU DUMMY WILL YOU NEVER LEARN, NL'ING IN THIS SET UP IS RETARDED AF. Right now, My scum reads are Katie and Lara but not together. Like EITHER Katie OR Lara, I doubt they're scum together.

DOn't get me wrong, I'm not OMGUS'ing but I'm gonna say Katie because she seems to be subtly attempting to take the game into her hands without anyone noticing, which would explain the random lynch on me. I was strongly suspecting sylvester but I figured mafia would not suggest something as dumbly noticeable as NL'ing until a mafia kill happens.

And, he continues to insult people who think differently than him, still refusing to explain why he thinks NLing is bad. He just calls NLing "RETARDED AF" and leaves it at that. You know who else has the nasty tendency of saying something they "believe" while refusing to tell why their belief is valid? Congress Mafia. Or at the very least, untrustworthy people.
He also places scum reads on Katie and Lara, two people who have expressed the possibility of his being scum. He does not do likewise for Clark or Misato, the only people who have been lurking more than him. You'd think if he were being called out for filler and/or lurking, they would be the ones he would deflect the blame to. Interesting. But rather, he claims he has legitimate scumreads of Katie and Lara without expressing why, just saying "This isn't OMGUSing! Pay no attention!" So this can be interpreted as either a weird townie thing to do or a bad-der but more understandable mafia thing to do.
He puts a scumread on Katie for trying to "take the game into her hands without anyone noticing" by lynching him. Strange; it seems her lynching of Forrest was, in fact, very noticeable, and not taking over the game. That's like saying "Bushitler is trying to take over the world without anyone noticing by invading Iraq for oil!"
Oh, and apparently now I'm not mafia because mafia wouldn't say something as stupid as NLing until we're killed. It's nice to know that I'm not a mafia making stupid "rookie mistakes" now, huh?
FIRST POINT IS FAIR
SECOND POINT MAKES IT LOOK LIKE YOU HAVE A PERSONAL PROBLEM WITH FORREST
ALTHOUGH I THINK WHAT FORREST SAID WAS EXCESSIVE, I THINK WHAT KATIE DID WAS PRETTY MUCH PERFECTLY FRAMED BY MATEO

YOU'RE MISSING THE POINT
IF WE LYNCH, WE DO NOT SUDDENLY LOSE THE INPUT OF ALL THE PLAYERS, WE ONLY LOSE THE INPUT OF THE PERSON WHO IS LYNCHED. LIKEWISE, WHEN A NIGHTKILL OCCURS, WE LOSE ONLY THE INPUT OF THE DEAD PLAYER.
FROM THE NIGHTKILL, WE WILL LOSE THE INPUT OF A PLAYER WHO WILL MORE LIKELY HAVE MORE VALUABLE INPUT THAN THE PLAYER WE LYNCH AND THE PLAYER WHO DIES WILL LIKELY BE TOWNIE AS WELL, MEANING THAT WE CANT GAIN VERY MUCH FROM ANALYZING THEIR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHERS OTHER THAN "WOW, THIS WAS GENUINE"

YOU SHOULDNT REALLY BE LYNCHING SOMEONE WHO ISNT GOING TO BE GIVING YOU ANY OR VERY LITTLE INFORMATION SHOULD THEY FLIP TOWN, SO THE POINTS ASSOCIATED THAT ARE BASICALLY IRRELEVANT

THIS 'DISCUSSION' IS ACTUALLY QUICKLY SLOWING DOWN AND NOTHING WILL COME OF IT EVENTUALLY, SUCH THAT OUR ACTIVITY WILL BE REDUCED TO THAT OF THE OTHER TWO GAMES (WHICH ARE ALMOST DEFINITELY GOING TO BE MAFIA VICTORIES).
NO IM NOT TRYING ANY APPEAL TO EMOTION OR ANYTHING SIMILAR IM POINTING OUT THAT INACTIVE GAME = MAFIA WIN

REFER TO MY POINT ABOUT THE UTILITY OF TOWN MEMBERS
IF THE TOWN AS A WHOLE GETS RID OF A TOWN MEMBER WHO WILL MAXIMIZE THE INFORMATION TO USEFULNESS RATIO (OF COURSE THE PERSON MUST ALSO BE SCUMMY, BUT THAT IS A GIVEN), THE BENEFIT WILL BE BETTER THAN IF A TOWNY MEMBER WHO YOU WOULDNT GET MUCH INFORMATION FROM DIES

ALSO AT THE MOMENT KATIE IS SIMULTANEOUSLY INCREDIBLY SCUMMY AND RELATIVELY USELESS
ALTHOUGH PART OF THAT ISNT HER FAULT SINCE SHE HAS NO ACCESS TO A COMPUTER AND MOBILE PSANON IS ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE

REGARDLESS IF SHE IS LYNCHED A WHOLE LOT OF INFORMATION FORREST LARA AND SYLVESTER BECOMES AVAILABLE FOR ANALYZING
IN MY OPINION, ANYWAYS

LYNCH KATIE

Sylvester S. wrote:Just to let you guys know, this game I'm going to map scumhunting evidence along the lines of information theory. I'm going to do it for sure, and I encourage you to do the same for a fun lil' change in the meta ^-^

I'll be using small tidbits of information called "teits" (tenth-bits) to crudely track evidence. Just think of it along the lines of, "Hey, Sylvester's totally sheeping behind Clark the Conductor, that's two teits against him, I'd say. Also, Misato had some nice relevant reads on everybody, minus one teit against her."

The structure is this: every person in the game has a 1/3 crude chance of being scum. Using the teit as our unit, this suggests that in order to have a 50-50 of that person flipping scum if lynched, you need...

log1.1(3) = 11.53 ~~ 12 teits of valid information.

If you have a gut feeling, please don't hesitate to express it like this; it's easier to keep track of, and really cuts through the scum tactics of mystery and illogical passion.

Firstly, you choose Sylvester to be sheeping behind you, attempt to make you look apart?
Secondly, you didnt use teits ever since this post, thats probs cos nobody liked mathia

Misato O. wrote:No lynch

So basically, I don't trust the concept of "LOL THEY WON'T GET THE KILL THROUGH, LETS LYNCH" On mylo.

Buuutttt, It's not mylo. I think we should nl today, since we have very little info, and lynch tomorrow or the next day.
This is filler, repeating what others have said

Clark the Conductor wrote:I really really don't understand that mini bandwagon on Sylvester S, yes his idea was pretty bad but at least he tried.

No lynch for now.
Defence of Sylvester :/

There, hammer safe. FOS on Katie though, saying "mini-defense by clark" is scumreading things that aren't really there, seems like she's just desperate to push someone. For the end of today, I have an FoS on Katie with a slight distrust of Sylvester, and a dislike/distrust for anyone who barely spoke today.

Yosuke and Mateo. Sorry, didn't have the names in mind. In my head, right now, scumlist is Mateo>Katie>Sylvester>Yosuke>Misato>Forrest>Clark>Myself

This list is backed up in no way at all

Still alive! I thought I was dead after the predicted LarKaVester kill. And you guys totally lied and said it wasn't hammer >.>

I can't believe I didn't use this to justify no lynching earlier, but the more people there are alive, the harder it is for Mafia to land a kill, statistically. Games 20 & 21 are just yololynch suckers imotbh

No Lynch. Also, why not just use a system of "lynching" until PLyLo where we do fakelynch ajhockeystar so we get our point across, without actually voting. Sound good?

Some thoughts in next post.

This seems like a mafia trying to act like a townie, with the, OH MA GAWD I thought i was dead! holy balls im so relieved hehe

Sylvester S. wrote:Okay, so I screwed up by saying that stupid "I predict someone from LarKaVester will be killed" thing. It really accomplishes nothing but encouraging the Mafia to target one of us >.> That was just stupid... Sorry. But hey, nobody died, might as well comb this information for all it's worth, still very sorry, which leads me to...

What if one of LarKaVester is scum?

Let's say Katie and Clark are mafia. Both are active and (probably) would have seen me send out this blaring alarm "KILL LARA OR SYLVESTER". Let's say both saw it (100%) and know, for a near fact (90%), that the other saw it. What's the probability they count on the OTHER one following this sign?

Katie says to herself, Hmm. Will Clark decide to follow this? I mean, if I follow this and choose Lara, then there's a chance he, too, will follow this signpost and target either Lara or Sylvester--50-50 he targets the same one I do. Clark tells himself the same thing.

So I'd say there's a 90% chance they both see it, a 2/3 chance they both decide to follow it, but then by pure luck one targeted me, the other Lara. Doesn't matter who targeted who. So, if we assume that one of LarKaVester is Mafia, and we know for a fact the kill did not go through, then that means...
10% chance one or both of them did not see it and it was just a random miss,
30% chance they both saw it, but one or both of them decides not to follow it, and it was just a random miss,
60% chance they both saw it, but missed by one targeting Lara, the other, Sylvester (lé sexy beast me)

All of this seems realistically likely.

What if two of LarKaVester are scum?

Wait, first of all, I'd just like to say that if I were mafia, the "One of LarKaVester will die" would likely have been considered a soft by aj, and the post deleted and I subbed out. Nothing about town softing, right?
ajhockeystar wrote:Before I start the game, it has been told to me that this game has a game-breaking strategy for mafia that involves them announcing a kill in mylo prior to hammering. So I'm just announcing this rule publicly - mafia aren't allowed to announce or softclaim their kill to their partner.
Weak evidence, I know, I screwed up anyways. So I'll make it up by doing two explanations for this one.

Lara and Sylvester are mafia. Sylvester, being an arrogant turd, will definitely follow his plan and target Katie. There is literally no incentive for him not to. Literally. Lara, knowing Sylvester is Mafia, has a 90% chance of detecting his soft in the first place, because she'd cling tight to her man. Would she follow the soft after detecting it, and target Katie? Again, there is little reason for her not to, unless she feared repercussions for her and Sylvester as being the only surviving members of LarKaVester which could become a Big Problem later on. I'd say, oh, 2/3 chance she would follow the softing? But we know for a fact there was no kill, so...
10% chance Lara did not detect the soft and just chose randomly like a n00b,
30% chance she saw it but did not follow it, because she wanted to keep LarKaVester alive, probably for a lynching of Katie on PLyLo,
60% chance she saw it and targeted Katie--whoahwaitwhat
60% chance something else entirely happened?

It doesn't really compute... It's realistically something like:
10% chance Sylvester is not an arrogant turd and does not target Katie and it was either random miss because Lara did not follow the soft or definite miss because Lara followed it
10% chance Lara did not detect the soft and just chose randomly like a n00b,
80% chance she saw it but did not follow it, because she wanted to keep LarKaVester alive, probably for a lynching of Katie on PLyLo

Ehh, none of that is very likely IMO.

So what if Lara and Katie are Mafia? Well, again, 10% chance one or both of them did not see the claim, 2/3 chance they both decided to follow it... But again, we run into the roadblock of why nobody died then.
10% didn't see it blahblahblah
30% didn't follow blehebleheblhe4
60% chance saw it targetd Sylvester blalmalmalallalalllama albino

Which realistically translates to:

20% chance did not see it
80% chance one or both of them saw it but did not follow it, because they wanted to keep LarKaVester alive, probably for a lynching of Sylvester on PLyLo

That is more believable, I'd say, than the above, but still not likely.

If none of LarKaVester are scum?

Figure it out yourself. Spoiler: nothing to figure out besides where you started.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

tl;dr
It is more likely that one member of the mafia is in LarKaVester than both are, because outcomes where nobody died last night occur more frequently and easily when only one is mafia as opposed to if two are. If both mafia are in LarKaVester, you have to assume something freaky like one of them purposefully did not want to kill. Also, because Sylvester is the mastermind behind the soft, and nobody died, it decreases the likelihood that he is scum slightly because he would have followed his plan more often than a non-Sylvester scum would have followed it.

In other words:
"Chance none of LarKaVester are scum" > "Chance one of LarKaVester who is not Sylvester is scum" > "Chance Sylvester is scum" > "Chance Lara and Katie are scum" > "Chance Sylvester and one other LarKaVester are scum"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please try to understand this. Read it carefully. Actually, this is a life lesson in priority management. No, seriously. So even if you disregard me completely on this theory by itself, just try to learn something from it.

Slight FOS on Katie and Lara for being in LarKaVester and a lesser FOS on Clark for hammering nl.

Where did all these percentages come from apart from your own opinions (which are better displayed in a list plz)

I'll be using small tidbits of information called "teits" (tenth-bits) to crudely track evidence. Just think of it along the lines of, "Hey, Sylvester's totally sheeping behind Clark the Conductor, that's two teits against him, I'd say. Also, Misato had some nice relevant reads on everybody, minus one teit against her."

The structure is this: every person in the game has a 1/3 crude chance of being scum. Using the teit as our unit, this suggests that in order to have a 50-50 of that person flipping scum if lynched, you need...

log1.1(3) = 11.53 ~~ 12 teits of valid information.

If you have a gut feeling, please don't hesitate to express it like this; it's easier to keep track of, and really cuts through the scum tactics of mystery and illogical passion.

Honestly, you shouldn't need math to scumhunt. It should be entirely based on tells, and it seems to me like the number of teits assigned is relatively arbitrary based upon however scummy you personally think an action is. So to me, something like a freudian slip would be worth 5 or 6 teits but to everyone else it may be worth only 2. SO I think math is the wrong way to go, and you bringing it in is trying to draw our attention away from actual scumtells and reads that could find a scum BEFORE they manage to kill us.

Ugh, yes, I suppose that's true, its effectiveness will vary based on prior knowledge of the system :/ In which case I'll use them to privately organize my thoughts, and speak of scumtells verbally. I'll drop all mention of it. All I ask is that others consider at least trying it, you know, maybe a little? To each his own? Is that alright? It helps me, at least.

On Katie P., I don't think discussing softclaiming kills is scummy. In fact, that discussion really should have been the first order of business when the confirmation stage was up. Coordinating softs is really the only way the Mafia are allowed to communicate (except voting patterns). The only thing strange about what Katie said is that she wanted to talk about it after D1 began, not in the confirmation stage. Which is, like, not a big deal.

OMGUS FOS on Mateo for shooting down my scumhunting method just by saying "math is bad".

OMGUS Town read on Lara for using words to describe why math is bad.

I agree. As in a normal game of Mafia, we should NL and scumhunt on MyLo; I predict we'll have three of these PMyLos until Mafia lands a kill.

Either we can have 1) two consecutive days of lynching, 2) a few days scumhunting and no lynching followed by a lynching day after Mafia lands a kill, or 3) any moldable, but risky combination thereof.

IMO I think option 1 > 3 > 2.

I play Mafia with an extremely different sort of people than Pokémon nerds.

We literally go 4-12 games NLing all the way until a string of LyLos happens and then all Mafia are successively lynched. This theme is especially generous in that wise.
I am not Citrus Freak, much like how Elon Musk is not a kid in the back yard paying with a model rocket.

The only salient comment made about Mathia so far was Yosuke saying "it obscures subjectivity", and Lara commenting on how we'd all have different interpretations of slips.

Misato had an open mind. If someone is scum, what do they have to benefit from aligning herself with an alleged "Citrus Freak"? Mafia recoil in fear from the new and untested.

Talking is the best way to get information. Tell you what. Let's meet in the middle and say lynch after Mafia makes its first kill.

Similarly, I propose we not make judgments about math before we understand what Sylvester is talking about.*

No, I wan't you to call out anything scummy you can find - and then give us why you think it's scummy or back it up. Just saying "Mini defense by Clark? XP" does nothing unless you give insight as to why it may be said.

WHILE THIS IS FAIR AND THE INTENTION BEHIND IT IS GOOD YOU SHOULDNT TRY TO FORCE EVERYONE TO CONTRIBUTE BECAUSE LET ME TELL YOU THE ONE THING THAT DOESNT WORK IS THAT
EVERYONE SHOULD JUST BE DOING THEIR BEST TO CONTRIBUTE AND NOT PURPOSELY BE LAZY AND EVERYTHING WILL BE ALLLLLL GOOOOOD

YOU AND LARA? SURE. WHAT PROBABLY HAPPENED (ASSUMING YOU'RE BOTH TOWN, WHICH I DOUBT) IS THAT EACH SCUM TARGETED ONE OF YOU
THE FACT THAT YOU KEEP BRINGING KATIE INTO THE MIX MAKES ME FEEL LIKE IF YOU'RE SCUM YOU WENT AT HER WITH THE NIGHTKILL
I just stupidly grouped the most active people into a meaningless label because literally everybody else was refusing to contribute at that point; best to hoist up the actives as a standard.
An, uh, how does me talking about Katie suggest "I targeted her with my nightkill"?


FOR NOW I AM LYNCHING SYLVESTER S. BECAUSE HE'S THE SCUMMIEST AS I SEE IT BUT THIS IS LIKELY TO CHANGE, AND IT PROBABLY WILL

Overall though I like Yosuke like ten times more than anybody else right now, which is completely personal and not related to the game at all. Actually it's related to the game more th---whatever, ignore this.

Oh, and just to make sure nobody misses why NLing is still a good idea, after Yosuke proposed we lynch today, I responded, saying:
Talking is the best way to get information, not necessarily lynching, which is far more extreme and usually detrimental at this early of a point. Tell you what. Let's meet in the middle and say lynch after Mafia makes its first kill. That will give us even more time to talk, maybe another day, and make the lynch reveal oh so more valuable. It'll be 2-5 then, then 2-4 after lynching which is PMyLo if Mafia misses that night, LyLo if they hit. Sound good?

This is a good post

Correcting you, you're wrong. I always ask people to not post lynches like this Lynch name in the middle of text since it's hard to pick out, and instead like this:

Lynch name

So yeah. Either way, quoting a lynch doesn't count as an actual lynch.

We literally go 4-12 games NLing all the way until a string of LyLos happens and then all Mafia are successively lynched. This theme is especially generous in that wise.
I am not Citrus Freak, much like how Elon Musk is not a kid in the back yard paying with a model rocket.

Even if numbers = math, talking =/= speaking. My question is, does a talker who leaps to criticize Mathia demonstrate a flaw in Mathia, or the themselves? If you want to completely disregard Mathia, fine, wipe it from your mind, but do not ignore the comments people make about it.
The only salient comment made about Mathia so far was Yosuke saying "it obscures subjectivity", and Lara commenting on how we'd all have different interpretations of slips.


THERE ARE VALID REASONS TO NOT USE MATH, AND INVALID ONES AS WELL
I DISAGREE THAT SCUM WILL BE THE ONLY ONES WHO WANT TO STIFLE NEW STRATEGIES BECAUSE IT WOULD RESULT IN NEW RESULTS THAT THEY ARE NOT USED TO

Misato had an open mind. If someone is scum, what do they have to benefit from aligning herself with an alleged "Citrus Freak"? Mafia recoil in fear from the new and untested.

ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO FIND SCUM IS BY PUTTING YOURSELVES IN THEIR SHOWS (AS TOWN) AND TRYING TO THINK OF STRATEGIES THEY WOULD USE. AS SUCH, STATING POSSIBLE MAFIA STRATEGIES ISNT TOWNY OR SCUMMY, AS I SEE IT
Even more important than thinking about individual scum actions, I suggest everybody takes two people, analyzes their personal interactions, and comment whether it smells of town talking speaking with town, town speaking with scum, or scum speaking with scum. They have no private communication; either they completely ignore eachother, or the speak publicly but with enough fake wink-wink "we're awesome" saltiness as to not be suspicious.

My FOS on you is probably the slightest FoS possible. It's Day 1, so town is scrambling to pick up on anything. Because other people have so few posts, I'm going off just what I already have, so right now I FoS you above all else. Are you mafia? No, probably not, but until we get more posts you're the closest to it fmpov.

What's bad about that? Lara seems a bit aggressively... passive here. That's good, I think? On the opther hand, I put a slight FOS on her and she flips out. Why the difference between her reads on others and others on her? Does she think herself non-discussable?

Katie P. wrote:So. There's a 1/4 chance we hit scum, which I don't think is worth lynching for. NL?

I agree. As in a normal game of Mafia, we should NL and scumhunt on MyLo; I predict we'll have three of these PMyLos until Mafia lands a kill.

Either we can have 1) two consecutive days of lynching, 2) a few days scumhunting and no lynching followed by a lynching day after Mafia lands a kill, or 3) any moldable, but risky combination thereof.

IMO I think option 1 > 3 > 2.

I DISAGREE WITH NLING AT THIS POINT ONWARDS UNLESS LYNCHING REALLY DOESNT GET US ANYTHING OR WE'RE IN MYLO
LYNCHING IS THE BEST WAY TO GET INFORMATION BY USING A CONFIRMED TOWN OR MAFIA'S INTERACTIONS WITH OTHERS TO HELP FIND SCUM
THE ONLY REASONS WE SHOULDNT LYNCH ARE 1) MYLO OR 2) WE HAVE NO IDEA AT ALL AS TO WHO COULD BE SCUM
Talking is the best way to get information. Tell you what. Let's meet in the middle and say lynch after Mafia makes its first kill. That will give us even more time to talk, maybe another day, and make the lynch reveal oh so more valuable. It'll be 2-5 then, after lynching, 2-4 which is PMyLo if Mafia misses that night. Sound good?

AFTER A CERTAIN POINT TALKING IS NOT AS USEFUL AS LYNCHING
WE HAVE DEFINITELY PASSED THAT POINT
LYNCHING SOMEONE WILL GIVE US ENOUGH INFORMATION SINCE WE CAN USE THEIR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHERS TO HELP US FIGURE OUT WHO IS TOWN AND WHO IS NOT
STALLING UNTIL MAFIA MAKES THEIR FIRST KILL SIMPLY RIDS US OF A GOOD TOWN MEMBER AND IS A WASTE OF TIME
WE REALLY SHOULD NEVER LYNCH ON MYLO THOUGH

Buuutttt, It's not mylo. I think we should nl today, since we have very little info, and lynch tomorrow or the next day.

I'm not saying use it as a strat - I'm saying it's possible. You will have to lynch on MyLo though, because if you NL, mafia gets kill and it turns into LyLo - or they don't get the kill and it remains in MyLo.


I disagree with NLing today, just because I think we could get some information based on reads/etc, but I'm fairly impartial right now.

Unlynch Sylvester S, No Lynch

Lara C. wrote:Katie and Clark are the scum team.

Hear me out:

Katie is trying to move the lynch off of Sylvester with the Forrest lynch, correct? Any random lynch like that to shift plurality from someone, with no reasoning given, is typically considered scummy.

So I think, if Katie is scum, that means Sylvester is scum as well, because Katie is trying to avoid getting him lynched.

However, maybe Katie is trying to keep Sylvester alive because he's an easier lynch later in game. If this is the case, little Clark the lurker who obviously still her becomes incredibly scummy to me - why be definitely here but do nothing at all to help town?

I agree with the clark bit

I'm writing this and I haven't even looked at the lynchcount but at this point I'm against a Sylvester lynch, whilst the strategies he has proposed haven't been the best he has made an effort and offered up good ideas not math related.

You'll probably see this as me buddying with Sylvester now that it seems likely he'll be lynched today, or me trying to defend Sylvester before he goes down and flips town, while either of these points could obviously be true from your point of view, my sole reason for not wanting Sylvester lynched today is as above.

No lynch.

Hmmm... If we accept as a prior fact, from the viewpoint of the "standard townie", that Sylvester S. is 100% mafia, then could Lara be his partner?

She seemed pretty upset upon learning her lover was into math. "That is a terrible idea," she said with mean words to appear Not Approving of Sylvester. Problem is, why did she say that? Knowing about Freudian slips and (probably) understanding the math behind the teit, it would be easy enough for her to defend Sylvester; but even after Clark said "is this mathia or mafia", she could have turned around and said, "Look, this is a good idea because ABC. I support it, despite the fact that XYZ could also happen. Please elaborate, Sylvester?", whereupon Sylvester would say, "Right, well, those are issues, but I think it's cool; what do you guys say?". But she didn't; she shot him down right there. And why in the world would Sylvester make the LarKaVester thing if he and Lara were mafia, even analyzing the literal scenario where he and her were mafia? She then shot that down, too.
Really, if Lara was Sylvester's partner she would be the worst partner ever; and Lara does not seem like she would be bad at being the mafia if she were. Lara or Sylvester could be singular mafia, but not together. And since Sylvester is 100% mafia, Lara is pretty clear.

In other words, Sylvester being mafia is very strong probable evidence that Lara is town, not mafia.

By the way, how did you come to your conclusion of "IF SYLVESTER IS SCUM HIS ONLY LOGICAL PARTNER IS LARA" in the first place? As a near-confirmed town, you should be especially diligent at revealing your motives, since they're all so benign.

And could you please stop doing all caps.

this post means nothing to me as you are talking about yourself in 3rd person

Lara C. wrote:So the Katie+Clark team isn't because of their interactions, it's because of my scumreads on each.

Katie is scummy because of her lynch on Forrest, and the logic that Mateo posted about it (go read his thing);

Clark because of his high inactivity and bandwagoning. He's also NLing because there's a higher chance of getting a VT killed at night than avoiding one of the mafia being lynched during day (1/25 times VT dies at night, assuming a random player is picked by each mafia, versus 2/7 chance a mafia gets lynched) so he may be trying to get safer odds.
then say this, "I have a FOS on Katie Perry because..... and a FOS on clark because......."

Second of all, SYLVESTER YOU DUMMY WILL YOU NEVER LEARN, NL'ING IN THIS SET UP IS RETARDED AF. Right now, My scum reads are Katie and Lara but not together. Like EITHER Katie OR Lara, I doubt they're scum together.

DOn't get me wrong, I'm not OMGUS'ing but I'm gonna say Katie because she seems to be subtly attempting to take the game into her hands without anyone noticing, which would explain the random lynch on me. I was strongly suspecting sylvester but I figured mafia would not suggest something as dumbly noticeable as NL'ing until a mafia kill happens.

Why do you disagree with NLing until Mafia makes their first kill to spend as much time gathering reads as possible, and then lynching? It works out pretty darn well, at least how I see it. What do you really believe, and why do you believe it?

Also, could you please stop talking in CAPS LOCK? It obscures meaning and makes reads more difficult. See: the guy who talked in verse the entire game one time then won as Mafia because nobody could read him.
I DISAGREE WITH IT BECAUSE THE MAFIA NIGHTKILL IS GOING TO BE ON SOMEONE WHO IS USEFUL TO TOWN LIKE MATEO INSTEAD OF SOMEONE WHO IS SCUMMY
GETTING INFORMATION OFF OF THAT PERSONS INTERACTIONS - ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY COULD BE MAFIA - IS MUCH BETTER THAN GETTING INFO OFF OF A CONFIRMED TOWN SINCE WE CAN ALSO USE THE INTERACTIONS OF THAT PERSON WITH OTHERS TO HELP US WITH SCUM
IN TERMS OF NIGHTKILLS, THERE COULD BE FRAMING GOING ON AND THE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN PEOPLE ARENT NECESSARILY AS GOOD AS WHEN TOWN AS A WHOLE CHOOSES THE PERSON TO DIE

I AM IN NO WAY SIMILAR TO OGATA SINCE HE STATED THINGS IN A CONFUSING WAY AND IM SIMPLY YELLING WHAT I HAVE TO SAY

And why in the world would Sylvester make the LarKaVester thing if he and Lara were mafia, even analyzing the literal scenario where he and her were mafia? She then shot that down, too.
Really, if Lara was Sylvester's partner she would be the worst partner ever; and Lara does not seem like she would be bad at being the mafia if she were. Lara or Sylvester could be singular mafia, but not together. And since Sylvester is 100% mafia, Lara is pretty clear.

In other words, Sylvester being mafia is very strong probable evidence that Lara is town, not mafia.

By the way, how did you come to your conclusion of "IF SYLVESTER IS SCUM HIS ONLY LOGICAL PARTNER IS LARA" in the first place? As a near-confirmed town, you should be especially diligent at revealing your motives, since they're all so benign.

And could you please stop doing all caps.


THE ENTIRE FIRST HALF OF YOUR ARGUMENT IS SHOT DOWN BY THE EXISTANCE OF BUSSING
THE REASONING BEHIND SYLVESTER + LARA AS THE ONLY POSSIBLE SCUMTEAM FOR ANOTHER IS THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO NIGHTKILL
CONTRARY TO WHATEVER BELIEF YOU SEEM TO HAVE, KATIE WAS NOT A GOOD OPTION FOR THE NIGHTKILL
IT WAS EITHER YOU OR LARA SINCE YOU WERE THE TWO THAT ACTUALLY SAID ANYTHING USEFUL THAT DAY
AS SUCH, IF ONE OF YOU WAS SCUM BOTH THEY AND THEIR PARTNER WOULD HAVE PROBABLY TARGETED THE OTHER PERSON IF THEY WANTED TO GET A KILL THROUGH
I GUESS THERE IS THE ARGUMENT THAT THE SCUM DIDNT WANT A KILL AND THUS ONE OF THEM PURPOSELY TARGETED SOMEONE RANDOM SO THERE WOULD BE NO NIGHTKILL, AND THAT WOULD FIT WITH SYLVESTER/LARA NOT BEING A SCUMTEAM

Lara C. wrote:So the Katie+Clark team isn't because of their interactions, it's because of my scumreads on each.

Katie is scummy because of her lynch on Forrest, and the logic that Mateo posted about it (go read his thing);

Clark because of his high inactivity and bandwagoning. He's also NLing because there's a higher chance of getting a VT killed at night than avoiding one of the mafia being lynched during day (1/25 times VT dies at night, assuming a random player is picked by each mafia, versus 2/7 chance a mafia gets lynched) so he may be trying to get safer odds.

WHY DID YOU NOT SAY THAT AT FIRST? IT LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE BACKTRACKING NOW.

Second of all, SYLVESTER YOU DUMMY WILL YOU NEVER LEARN, NL'ING IN THIS SET UP IS RETARDED AF. Right now, My scum reads are Katie and Lara but not together. Like EITHER Katie OR Lara, I doubt they're scum together.

DOn't get me wrong, I'm not OMGUS'ing but I'm gonna say Katie because she seems to be subtly attempting to take the game into her hands without anyone noticing, which would explain the random lynch on me. I was strongly suspecting sylvester but I figured mafia would not suggest something as dumbly noticeable as NL'ing until a mafia kill happens.


WHY DO YOU BELIEVE LARA IS SCUM?

It looks like backtracking because it is - I didn't think about the way my first post calling out Katie and Clark was written. Here's my reasoning behind it, plus they seem to be actively avoiding making comments on one another.
i cant remember why i quoted this tbh, meh.

Sylvester S. wrote:FORREST #1

Forrest G. wrote:Hello, all.

Muh avatar be like I don't see shit but I am chilled as fuck.

No read to be seen here.

Forrest G. wrote:The "announce the kill before MyLo" was a pretty obvious thing. No softclaiming kills? This changes the way I thought this would play out since I expected scumhunting to be centered around that.

I agree with Lara C. on the mathia part.

2 days deadline? Not fun.

I take slight issue with how he said "The 'announce the kill before MyLo' was a pretty obvious thing." That sounds like someone just saying a useless thing to build up their credibility with easy "Look at me, I'm so townie" points.

Forrest G. wrote:
Sylvester S. wrote:
Clark the Conductor wrote:I really really don't understand that mini bandwagon on Sylvester S, yes his idea was pretty bad but at least he tried.

Um. You just hammered nl.

How is 4 a hammer?

There's no reason for him as either town or mafia to lie about Clark hammering. Unless Clark and him are scum and he's being stupid scum partner.

FORREST #2

Forrest G. wrote:First of all: everyone who no lyched is an ass hat
Second of all: IM BROCK'S BROTHER ✌️

So we know he disapproves of NLing. It's unknown at this point why he disapproves.

Forrest G. wrote:
Lara C. wrote:

Mateo is #1 on my lynch list because of the fact that he just has that sole post;

Katie as a weak case is just that  - there wasn't much else I could do casewise;

Sylvester gets 3 because he's trying at least, but in a way that isn't townie;

Yosuke obviously needed a sub, so let's chalk her #4 spot up to lurk/inactivity;

Misato is #5 because she offered up great ideas, that while I don't necessarily agree with them, are town-lead-y in a way, so again, at least she's trying;

I do agree that Forrest should have been much higher than I put him - I simply skimmed posts when making my list. After rereading, he should definitely be at 2 or 3;

Clark, again, not much to go off of, but seemed pretty town from what he's posted so far;

And of course me. So right now, I'd be all for lynching Mateo or Forrest.

You didn't explain why I should be at 2 or 3.
Additionally, I find sylvester's "wow I didn't die" post scummy. Rookie mistakes everywhere.

Why are you upset that someone had a high scumread of you if your predecessor did literally nothing but filler, and the only post you have made prior to this was filler? You knew full well why you were 2 or 3 on her scumreads.
And as for my "wow I didn't die" post, I get the feeling you read the first paragraph but nothing else. If you had, the reason you would think it was scummy wouldn't be because of "rookie mistakes". And even then, what townie in their right mind would equate rookie mistakes with being mafia? Rookie mistakes demonstrate n00biness, not scumminess. Why didn't you make that distinction?

So, again, we see he doesn't like NLing. Still, he does not tell us why.

The most information-packed post he's put forth so far has been to express indignation that someone thinks he's mafia. Go figure.
And, he continues to insult people who think differently than him, still refusing to explain why he thinks NLing is bad. He just calls NLing "RETARDED AF" and leaves it at that. You know who else has the nasty tendency of saying something they "believe" while refusing to tell why their belief is valid? Congress Mafia. Or at the very least, untrustworthy people.
He also places scum reads on Katie and Lara, two people who have expressed the possibility of his being scum. He does not do likewise for Clark or Misato, the only people who have been lurking more than him. You'd think if he were being called out for filler and/or lurking, they would be the ones he would deflect the blame to. Interesting. But rather, he claims he has legitimate scumreads of Katie and Lara without expressing why, just saying "This isn't OMGUSing! Pay no attention!" So this can be interpreted as either a weird townie thing to do or a bad-der but more understandable mafia thing to do.
He puts a scumread on Katie for trying to "take the game into her hands without anyone noticing" by lynching him. Strange; it seems her lynching of Forrest was, in fact, very noticeable, and not taking over the game. That's like saying "Bushitler is trying to take over the world without anyone noticing by invading Iraq for oil!"
Oh, and apparently now I'm not mafia because mafia wouldn't say something as stupid as NLing until we're killed. It's nice to know that I'm not a mafia making stupid "rookie mistakes" now, huh?

Forrest G. wrote:No really guys, take a closer look at Lara and Katie and tell me if I'm just being delusional.

You're not being delusional, just... I mean. Come on.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Overall:

I was largely ignoring Forrest before I did this reads list, but after looking at the words he says I now think these words are bad and not good words.
I think he's got a decent shot at being mafia. If NLing really is RETARDED AF, he's a candidate for the lynch today. But who knows, he might suddenly end up saying NLing is the right thing to do.
This is not to say I believe lynching today is a good idea. But if we go with my compromise, he could very well be our 2nd or 3rd priority.

Interactions with others:

He agrees with Yosuke, at least on the NLing bit. He's more vehement, at least in the way he expresses himself, though.
He thinks Lara and Katie are scummy for questionable reasons.
He likely thinks Sylvester is "a RETARDED AF asshat".
No word on Mateo.
And he is completely ignoring Misato and Clark.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why i lynched Forrest earlier, because of all this that nobody apart from myself and Sylvester saw.

If sylvester is scum then Ferrest could be just a n00bie townie

Sylvester S. wrote:
Clark the Conductor wrote:confirming

also can we all agree this is the best anon account in existence

Nothing to see here. He likes his name, though.

Clark the Conductor wrote:is this mafia or mathia

Not a big fan of mathia.

Clark the Conductor wrote:I really really don't understand that mini bandwagon on Sylvester S, yes his idea was pretty bad but at least he tried.

No lynch for now.

Clark claims to not support Sylvester in his actions, but sees them as being an honest attempt to help, suggesting that either he is town taking an objective view on the matter, or, less likely, a scumpartner with Sylvester trying to defend his partner's stupidity, first with lighthearted deference to the rest of the town, then trying to prevent Sylvester from facing the consequences of his actions. This also suggests that it is unlikely that Clark is mafia while Sylvester is town; he would have said that it was a scummy thing for Sylvester to do, then lynched him.
The fact that he NLed in an attempt to not have Sylvester lynched means that:
Neither of them are scum: Probable.
Sylvester is scum, Clark is not: Probable, but depends on your read of Sylvester.
Clark is scum, Sylvester is not: Very unlikely, not even worth thinking about in my opinion. (see above) There is no reason for Clark to alienate himself from the town just to save a townie from the consequences.
Both are scum: Improbable but possible, Clark would be acting much differently (maybe even bussing, though bussing this early in the game is kind of stupid).
Of course, from my point of view, I'm bound to only consider the first and third option. It is for this reason that Clark from my point of view is likely town, despite the absolutely horrible lurking.

(Side note: he's also "a RETARDED AF a**hat".)

Clark the Conductor wrote:Lara C.'s post at the start of this day bringing down Sylvester's was fucking hilarious btw 12/10 for effort 20/10 for delivery i laughed for like 20 mins ( Crying or Very sad )

i haven't been too active due to a number of reasons but ngl nobody would believe me if i posted them anyway.

I'm writing this and I haven't even looked at the lynchcount but at this point I'm against a Sylvester lynch, whilst the strategies he has proposed haven't been the best he has made an effort and offered up good ideas not math related.

You'll probably see this as me buddying with Sylvester now that it seems likely he'll be lynched today, or me trying to defend Sylvester before he goes down and flips town, while either of these points could obviously be true from your point of view, my sole reason for not wanting Sylvester lynched today is as above.

No lynch.

Crying or Very sad Again, not a big fan of mathia.
Again, defending Sylvester, but this time with some substance: that Sylvester has no offered some tangible, non-mathia ideas.
He admits this makes him seem tied to Sylvester. Wait, if he were mafia, why would he keep on doing anything that kept him tied to his scumpartner? Huh... What if he's predicting a Sylvester lynch, knowing Sylvester is town, so that he can be associated with the town martyr? That opens the door to a game full of finger-pointing and lynch controlling, if he plays his cards right. But, then again, all this is pretty far-fetched.
But he does seem pretty confident, that he knows Sylvester is town... "trying to defend Sylvester before he goes down and flips town"... Town isn't exactly known to deal with absolutes such as "I know Sylvester is going to flip town." Maybe, even more insidious, he is mafia legitimately trying to prevent town Sylvester's lynch, in order to have a likely active town pseudo-leader in his debt.

-----------------------------------------------------
Overall:
Awww, I was so sure he was town (from my point of view at least, that holds no bearing to you guys) after his third post, but all the possibilities from his fourth post just ruined it. I can say he's on a knife edge in my opinion, but definitely very dangerous. If I had to choose which way he leaned, it would be towards townie, because I don't know if Clark would think that far ahead into the game but still be a notorious lurker.
Unless he's just checking up on the situation without logging in to conceal his presence...
I won't mince words, this is hard Sad

Interactions with others:
He is undoubtedly beholden with Sylvester for some reason, whatever his actual motive is.
He, um, ignores everybody else, except for briefly acknowledging the existence of Lara.

Clark, post more for @!#%$%! sake!
"Awww, I was so sure he was town" WHY? what made you think that? he hasnt done shit

tl;dr of last 2 post

There has been some huge buddying between Clark and Sylvester.

Forrest has done nothing but get angry about being lynched and Filler

Lara, Yosuke, Sylvester, and Mateo are all giving townie posts

Misato or whatever she is called hasn't done much at all, says busy but we will see later in game

Sylvester is talking in 3rd person alot when he isnt giving good townie posts

You suck D has the best name ever and seems like a troll who is good at mafia. (aha i think i know who Yosuke is)

Clark is lurking like hell

Reads in order of Mafia->Towny (based off of their posts alone)

Clark, Forrest, Misato, Sylvester, Lara, Mateo, Yosuke


Reads in order of Mafia->Towny (based on buddying plus the above reads)

Clark, Sylvester, Misato, Forrest, Lara, Yosuke, Mateo


a few theorys

Sylvester is a rather experienced player who is good at mafia, who is mafia in this theme. Unfortunately, he has a noobish partner who is defending him. (clark)

Sylvester is actually town. Clark is mafia with forrest gump and is for some reason buddying with sylvester.

Neither are town. Forrest gump and somebody else are mafia

this IS infact victor+moe 2.0 and say, Yosuke and Lara are mafia.

i think we should lynch Clark today. He hasnt done a thing to help town so it wont hurt much if they are town

also one thing i noticed, katie's lynch on forrest g could have very well been not an attempt to save sylvester because he's his partner. it could have been an attempt to keep a easier lynch candidate alive (sylvester) so she could get him lynched later. then see how she pushes on forrest g hard out of a sudden after

KATIE QUOTING A GIGANTIC POST BY EITHER MYSELF OR SYLVESTER AND PROCEEDING TO SAY "THIS IS SCUMMY" OR "THIS IS GOOD" DOESNT HELP ANYONE AT ALL
ITS COMPLETELY FINE IF IT DONE OCCASIONALLY BUT IF YOU DO IT FOR BASICALLY EVERY POST THEN IT DOESNT REALLY GET US ANYTHING AND JUST MAKES IT LOOK LIKE YOU ARE FILLERING

ALSO AS OF THE END OF THE DAY EVERYONE IS JUST MAKING THEMSELVES LOOK INCREDIBLY SCUMMY AND I NOW HAVE NO REAL IDEA OF WHO IS SCUM

IF KATIE FLIPS SCUM THEN SYLVESTER AND FORREST ARE HER MOST LIKELY SCUMPARTNERS DUE TO REASONS I CAN ELABORATE ON IF NEEDED (THEY ARE NOT VERY STRONG SO IF PEOPLE HAVE BETTER REASONS ID PROBABLY FOLLOW THEM INSTEAD)

THE ANNOYING THING ABOUT INACTIVES IS THAT IT IS INCREDIBLY HARD TO READ THEM SO LYNCHES ON THEM RARELY TURN OUT WELL (UNLESS IT IS D1)

ALSO I HAVE NO IDEA IF LARA WAS PURPOSELY TRYING TO MAKE A SYLVESTER + HER SCUMTEAM INCREDIBLY LIKELY BUT I CURRENTLY SEE THAT AS A POSSIBILITY AT THE MOMENT
