Hello, wall.

I remember bessie posting about loosing steam content-wise about this point in a previous game, and I've reached that point myself. That people are dropping out right and left is not good for motivation either, but other players are bulling through. It also doesn't help that my role actually has a real upside if I get killed in that any day chat (over 6 days) becomes night chat (1 day only). Probably too late for that to be effective seeing as the most likely setup has two one-member scum teams left.

Also it seems I've been a bit fuzzy in paying attention in detail. In doing my read of jimbob I saw his opinion of bessie slowly drop, then have a sudden turn around due to a claim she made I don't recall the specifics of. Good thing I'm planning on doing a post-by-post of her next. Regardless, vote will be on somi with highest probability.

So we lynch somitomi today, dimochka gets modkilled, plytho replaces wam, no more inactive players.
I kill plytho tonight (hopefully), bessie will likely withhold. That leaves jimbob and moody.
It's 2-1-1, NL is a bad idea so we will vote. We need to lynch bessie D5 otherwise she kills me N5 and wins. However D6 will be a 2-1 LYLO and it doesn't look too good.
So my main hope is that bessie does the math and decides to kill someone tonight, and we'll have a 1-1-1 kingmaker situation tomorrow.

Allright, I feel I'm off to a good start. I feel I'm in a pretty tough spot at 1v1v 5. Ideally I think I want yin to survive the lynch and kill a townie to put us at 1v1v3. (or 1v1v2 if I kill a townie too)

I'm somewhat worried about indiewam. (Maybe he has to sacrifice MOOies as a wincon?) But wam's survival seems inevitable for now.
I'm more worried about bessie's power which could detect me as nonhuman, so I might be inclined to kill her tonight. I am unblockable so that risk is gone (unless there are multiple blockers).

There are also three unknown townie powers out there (moody,Sabrar, jimbob, somi) so I have to avoid there detection/protection to get to bessie.
A bessie lynch would be great :D

Anyway, this is fun.

Thought I'd let people know why I'm so often struggling for time currently: I got engaged last week! So lots of talking with my future wife and discussing weddings means mafia time is at a premium!

Unfortunately this lack of time has me struggling to keep the game properly in my head and I'm constantly forgetting what people have said or done. I have yet to see good use for my ability aside from the end game. It feels like Crossover all over again. The good news at least is that I don't think people will think my ability can come from scum, mostly because I can effectively use it to force a town mislynch or no lynch as scum. It also doesn't line up with the SJ's N2 results, so should clear me from that if needed. I'm debating claiming that I have a public day ability so that wam concludes I'm not scum, and more usefully uses his roleblock. A successful kill block tonight would be wonderful if we mislynch, because there aren't many people who can be BoomFrog's buddy.

I'm assuming the Apps are holding onto their kill for the end game. A premature kill could leave them facing the other scum team with no way of dealing with them.

Too bad I'm not a Mafia stump. Although most players would probably hate that role.

Anyway, since freezeblade included tracker there is probably but a full tracker. We know there isn't a full watcher since the FB kill was undetected. With somitomi getting lynched it's a safe assumption that you can claim a targeting power and not get contradicted. If you claim something passive you are stuck in a small lynch pool and will at minimum get too much suspicion.

A weak investigation claimed near the start of D5 would be ideal. But I can't think of anything you could safely claim with the knowledge you currently have. Doctor who can't save the target if someone else also targets would probably be best. You know SJ targeted freezeblade which could have "messed up" your save. You can say you are reluctant to reveal your power as it let's scum circumvent it.

If somi was an unlikely supervillain this is going to be a really tough game for me. I only have one kill, so I'll need to lynch the other three to beat the remaining townie. Best strategy is to keep the kill until the end of the game otherwise I create a confirmed townie thanks to wam's MOO. Waiting until the end also leaves more alternate lynch options. Moody and bessie seem lynchable for now. Sabrar and Jimbob are a lot tougher. Wam is looking pretty tough as well.

Spoiler:
Very, very, tough road ahead for Sabrar at this point.

In retrospect I think making the Supervillains lose half of their killing power if they lost a member was probably too punishing. I think for this to work out, I did need to have it that losing a member would be quite crippling for either of the mafia factions, but the way this played out, scum needs four mislynches to win. Multiball is always going to be super swingy with this few players though. If Town plays in the most suboptimal fashion, they can lose with only one mislynch.

[edit]Only good news for Sabrar is that wam decided to block plytho (which failed anyway), so nobody is cleared.

So close to my best case scenario. If only Sabrar had shot wam! Jimbob, bessie and moody weren't good options due to their lynchability. I didn't really consider this scenario but I guess it makes a lot of sense.

Good luck wriggling out of that tight spot I put you in Sabrar.

I would have loved to play me vs Sabrar vs jimbob bessie and moody. Actually, starting with a jimbob lynch would have made that a sure thing for the apps. (lynch Sabrar to eliminate the kill N6, I kill moody or bessie)

So... Sabrar is really scum? Or wam is on an epic gambit? Or bessie is Ninja (which would only work against a part-time tracker)? Or moody is Strongman (which would only be useful against an effectively one-shot roleblocker versus him)? Pretty sure it's Sabrar, but I'm doubting myself.

Hopefully the rest of town will believe my ability claim wouldn't be from scum, and it's also provable.

I think Sabrar was worried plytho could protect wam with his bus driver and redirect the kill somewhere problematic.

plytho actually did swap wam/jimbob in the night so it was a legitimate concern (plytho couldn't be mooed so I guess he didn't care about wam not being killed?)

Yeah, that's kinda understandable, but between the N1 weird targeting by dimochka and the likelihood of a bus driver having a drawback to stop it being just better than a doctor, I think he'd have to go for wam. ah well.

And yeah, our team wouldn't care the slightest about wam or freezeblade realistically, only the kill mafia would. Just had to try to not get killed by the other scum team but I guess we both failed at that.

I was trying to redirect the (unlikely in my view) kill to the other scum team or eliminate a candidate while also trying to redirect the moo back to wam to keep him from mooing everyone. Would have been nice if Sabrar shot wam. D5 lynch would be Sabrar and I'd have to lynch bessie moody or wam for the win. But yeah, failed at staying alive :(

good playing plytho, too bad it ended that way. I think we did as well as we could given the situation. My redirect N2 just wasn’t very well thought out. I was fairly sure that Sabrar is the other Mafia but given our team’s limited kills I played the gambit of trying to keep him alive and hoping he wouldn’t kill me for a while. Sadly that just backfired but was fun!

This is basically the worst possible way to use this power, it would have been so much better to take a stand...

I actually hadn't checked if it was possible, but not using my ability never really crossed my mind.
1) Town with that ability would never not use it early I think so a false claim later would be required.
2) Thought it was likely that everyone had a targeting ability so I didnt want to stand out a bunch (kill mafia has that issue anyway).

So Sabrar passed my little test. Not sure if it was a good idea or not, and how much I should trust the results, but I'll share my thoughts on it tomorrow. If Sabrar is scum, voting himself was extremely risky, as me switching my vote would have led to his lynch and loss. He might have been gambling that I wouldn't come online again, but he could have just not posted again without risk. Was there a serious risk he'd get lynched before game end otherwise and needed to take the risk? Yes, probably. If bessie clears moody as proposed, he and I are the two most likely to get lynched. He might be hoping for a bessie/me lynch otherwise.

On a related note, bessie's attitude has been similar, though she never self-voted.

In another example of self-doubt, I just found myself suspecting wam. Let's assume the Supervillains are Yin and Yang. The yin yang symbol is sometimes used in philosophical and religious iconography. That would suggest a church, and who is the leader of the church? Wam. Not only that, but wam also has access to a roleblock and BoomFrog was occasionally a reflexive roleblocker. What's a possible opposite of a reflexive roleblocker? An active roleblocker... The main issue with this logic is that wam has been shown to do the Church thing every night (specifically N2 and N3 even if BoomFrog started in the Church), so it doesn't line up with the alternative night nature of BoomFrog's ability.
