I am going to put my foot in my mouth and say I could be wrong about my claim. I could be insane. In fact, I think I probably am, because I keep going over and over it in my head and everything makes sense (including it looking like I targeted CF) if BoomFrog is scum. Also, neither he nor MN voted for Fearless.

Vote: BoomFrog

I'd also be happy lynching JSO. I'm know there's no way he can be sure of my being scum, because I'm town. So he's lying for some reason. My guess is that he was taken over by the cult group and would rather have me lynched than recruited as he can't be seen buddying with someone he was attacking recently.

Unless you have some special reason to believe you weren't roleblocked last night, none of your JSO quotes are demonstrable lies. It just means that JSO has taken a dislike to you. I think he's wrong, but not for necessarily scummy reasons.

Do you know you weren't roleblocked? If so, spill. If not, I'm inclined to regard your last quoted paragraph as OMGUS.

Once again, what bastardly kind of insane rolecop would return a person's claimed role? Once again, how would that even work if they hadn't claimed?

Right now I'm seeing two options. Either scum have falseclaims (In which case we should lynch JSO) or they don't (In which case we should lynch carey and ahammel, then move on to looking for a cult). That's not too complicated, we just have to decide which. What is complicated is a bastardly-naive rolecop and a cult claiming a mason group.

Say Xanatos is a cult recruiter. The mod could decide beforehand that role-cop investigations against him will return 'mason-recruiter'. Xanatos is told this in advance.

Not saying that's what's going on here (in fact I'm pretty sure it's not, as that's a hideously overpowered cult in a game that already has a mafia and probably an SK), but it would be pretty trivial to set up as a mod if one was so inclined.

Bad argument for two reasons. The first is wine, and the second is that scum's priority is to kill cops and doctors, not trackers and bodyguards.

Except we don't have any cops and doctors. It could be argued that a bodyguard is better than a tracker anyway. And explain exactly where the wine is there. Scum couldn't anticipate that Snark would be roleblocked and KrO2 would be busdriven. So scum had no reason to avoid a claimed power role to "spread wine".

@USN: Jesse is being unreasonable but I expected better from you. For me to have targeted Finglass I would have had to take two different actions D1. Even if I'm theoretically a cult recruiter I still recruited MN D1. I think it is much more likely that mpolo was redirected to track someone who actually did target Finglass. Or the hologram thing but apparently no one thinks that's reasonable. : /

Also btw, I said Broadway was likely to be naive, I never said Lexington was likely insane.

I think snark, ahammel and Carey really need to claim right now. Either scum have safe claims and there's not much harm in everyone saying what their claim is, or scum don't have safeclaims and those three are scum hoping to go another day without being forced to claim. Carey has been the most unreasonable and is avoiding forming any opinions today and my opinion of his towniness has quickly descended. (I think carey should claim in mason chat and the other two should claim in thread after carey, that will give scum the most chance to screw up.)

Oh, another mistake. Should be "a bodyguard is better than a doctor anyway." My point was scum don't need to search for a doctor when they have claimed trackers and bodyguards.

Unless we are using the term very differently, a bodyguard is much worse than a doctor. My understanding (source) is that a bodyguard targets one player during the day, and if the mafia target that player the bodyguard is killed instead.

Mostlynormal wrote:My point was scum don't need to search for a doctor when they have claimed trackers and bodyguards.

And why would scum go after trackers and bodyguards if they suspect that town has doctors and cops? They would be equally justified, if not better, in killing non-claimed townies to try and find one with a better power role.

That may be right but I think I remember CaptainFinglass claiming her target was both roleblocked and protected (like a jailkeeper) rather than the standard bodyguard thing. But it's also possible that I just read bodyguard as jailkeeper and faked the memory.

Anyway, I'm sorry. I don't buy that your power is so super-duper top secret that even claiming your name would give it away. I think you're scum run out of falseclaims and trying desperately to avoid claiming.

Because even a super top secret special power role would rather be nightkilled than lynched. So you'd better start talking.

She claimed only that her role name is 'bodyguard' and (indirectly) that she knows if she was kill-targeted.

Sorry for all the lurking. I just don't know what to say. Every scum out there knows for a fact that I am not one of them. I am a member of BF's mason group.

Right, so anyway. Carey admitted to being scum in mason chat. I'd vote him but I already am. The only reason not to lynch him is if we think we can pick out the illuminate recruiter, but that seems like a longshot compared to a sure scum lynch.

We know for a fact that there is a vig or SK around, and the number of scum that have to be accounted for is almost exactly as big as our number of unclaimed persons. This is probably coincidence, of course -- there are likely scum that are false-claiming among us.

Knowing that there are kills around that aren't accounted for, I would suggest getting rid of one of those now.

Here's my logic--if BF were scum, when carey flips town, both BF and MN would pretty much be lynched instantly. That's rather a big risk for scum to take. Furthermore, if Carey were a jester (how can a jester be insane?) he wouldn't have admitted to being such (ie that's less likely to get him lynched) and he would have been less inclined to convince us he was town for multiple days.

So Carey admitted to telling BF he was a SK in mason chat. Now he's claiming jester.

Why would he do that?
1) He's actually an SK and was hoping that BF was scummy somehow and would let him live and vouch for him in thread
2) He's a jester who wanted to be called out as an SK in thread. But this makes no sense as he claimed jester in thread.
3) He's a townie who lied to a mason recruiter and is now claiming jester. This makes no sense.
5) He's scum. He thought he could get BF lynched by telling everyone that BF was lying about him.

3 seems the least likely. 2 is pretty unlikely as well.

My votes going on Carey unless something rather significant happens to change my mind, but I don't want to put him at L-2 until more people get a chance to weigh in.

If you had, it would explain all the D1 actions. I found a situation where we could explain it with Snark lying about his targets, which is why I was keeping it under my hat. I think a Snark redirect would have done it as well, but I didn't realize that until later.

It absolutely depends on you having targeted USN, though. I still have no idea what happened D1.

But it doesn't matter because we have a claimed serial killer. I don't know why we didn't think of asking politely for the scum to claim before.

And bang, bang, Maxwell’s silver hammer came down upon his head;
Clang, clang, Maxwell’s silver hammer made sure that he was dead...


Final Votals:
ahammel: 1 (Mostlynormal)
BoomFrog: 2 (careyhammer, JesseScottOwen)
careyhammer: 6 (ahammel, BoomFrog, CaptainFinglass, mpolo, Snark, UniqueScreenname)


Discussion went back and forth, until suddenly a bold pronouncement rang out - and all eyes turned to careyhammer. They moved to surround him as he backed towards the edge of the roof, but nobody seemed willing to make the final move. Finally, Snark stepped forward...

But ahammel came charging out of the group, shouting “No, this is my fight! Now let it be FINISHED!”

With that, he launched himself at careyhammer in a flying tackle, and both of them plunged over the side and out of sight, careyhammer’s screams echoing through the night until both of them finished their long fall to the ground below.


careyhammer has been lynched. His role will be revealed at nightfall.
ahammel has died. His role will be revealed at nightfall.


The group stood in shock at this double death, nobody speaking for a while until they noticed the hue of dawn beginning to color the night sky - already? That was fast...So, it was time for them to split up. For safety. And for their own reasons as well...

It is now Day 3. Day 3 will end on Friday, May 25, 2012 at 16:00 PDT (23:00 GMT). The Day will end earlier if all actions are submitted early and all parties with Day chat consent. (This is identical to the conditions that were being used to determine early Day end previously, but I have changed the wording to be more clear.)

Nobody reconvened at the usual spot - they all first went to where careyhammer and ahammel had impacted the ground, unable to contain their curiosity at what had happened. What they saw was a look of tormented anguish on careyhammer’s face, the familiar and ever-furious visage of Demona unshielded by illusion at last - and also broken and unmoving. Yet ahammel, whose broken body lay atop hers, had a look of peace and contentment - Macbeth had finally ended his centuries-long hunt...

careyhammer was Demona (Immortal Serial Killer). She was a Serial Killer (Independent) and was a Gargoyle, but would appear Human to racecops. She won if she and Macbeth were the only living players remaining. She would gain an extra vote with four or fewer players remaining. She was a member of the Redemption Squad mason group.

ahammel was Macbeth (Immortal Lyncher). He was a Lyncher (Independent) and was a Human. He won if he was on a lynch that killed Demona. He would also Watch himself each night.

The two of them had a shared Immortality. Neither of them could be killed except at the hand of the other, but they would both die when this occurred. They would both be Roleblocked the following Day if this ability prevented one of their deaths.


After then flying up to their meeting place, they were in for a shock. Breakfast was still there, and uneaten! Oh no...that must mean...

JesseScottOwen has died during the Day. He was Broadway (Roleblocker). He was aligned with the Manhattan Clan (Town) and was a Gargoyle.

There were fewer and fewer of them left now - and Demona’s spell seemed to persist even past her death. But at least she was gone now. Would they soon follow suit?

It is now Night 4.
Night 4 will end on Thursday, May 31, 2012 at 16:00 PDT (23:00 GMT), just under 126 hours from now.

7 players alive, 4 votes to lynch.

For the odd question and for being the most likely Illuminata leader. We know she was roleblocked on D1, AND we know that the cult missed at least 1 night of recruiting or they'd be at 4 people (1 recruiter plus 3 recruits), and the game would be over.

Also, as a rolecop, US must know that I was telling the truth about my role if she copped me. I can't think of a reason why she would legitimately suspect me. If she's not the leader, she's a recruit.

So here's the problem. We've all claimed beleiveable things except Snark, so either scum have safeclaims (which would actually surprise me considering the amount of scummy people who's claims turned out to be true), or Snark is the cult leader. And I don't like that option either, because his bus driver claim is basically confirmed, and why the heck would a cult leader also be a bus driver? One thing that occurs to me is maybe there is no cult and he's Xanatos, aligned with Xanatos Enterprises. Bus driver would certainly be a Xanatos-like ability.

I think our best bet is to have Snark claim his rolename. If he also has a decent sounding claim then at least we know we'll have to do it the hard way, and if he doesn't we've just caught ourselves a cult leader.

Also, to everyone who doubted the Redemption Squad: told you so! :D
