Re: Thinking in words, and noticing errors

When you have a thought, do you tend to think it in words and sentences?: No, I see a thought as a physical thing or action, which I then have to interrupt into words to describe it to others, speaking or writing. This can sometimes be difficult, and I doodle with paper a lot to describe things, es...

Diablo Yes, my claim was light, because I'm holding onto my PGO, although it may be a tad obvious after my last post. Tonight I don't think it'll be useful, because we've got the kills wrapped up, and I'm not a great target, there are more important powers for scum to take out, b...

Re: Diablo Mafia - Day 4 (The End is Near)

I have returned from the weekend, and read the resulting posts. Some comments: I agree with plytho's proposed night-actions. That sounds about right, and should result in no kills, granted no meddling from unclaimed powers. Those that are saying my claim is light, they are right, I do have another o...

Re: Diablo Mafia - Day 4 (The End is Near)

I'm going to be away Sat-Sunday as usual, so I'll vote before I leave tonight. We need to get rid of the SK tonight, and I'm inclined to believe SDK and other's earlier reads on that over my own (I'm terrible at indie reads, SDK has super-human mafia reads), so Carlington will likely be my vote.

Re: Diablo Mafia - Day 4 (The End is Near)

Don't claim who you'll block, as I think we're likely looking at 2 scum and 1 SK. If you say who you'll block, they'll just kill with the other. If I take the bottom three on my town-scum list, we have Carlington, adnapemit, and Laserguy. I still think the Mafia kill was SDK, not GoP. Scenario 1: We...

Re: Diablo Mafia - Day 4 (The End is Near)

I'm guessing SDK was the scum kill, because they pushed hard against Sabrar, and is a strong player. Out of the two deaths, GoP makes less sense as a mafia kill, I think. This is all gut feelings, but I know that if I was scum, I would have shot SDK last night. I think that if this is confirmed some...
