I am trying to buddy up to Egarwaen. I'm trying to buddy up to everyone so you will like me and not throw me out of the game. Also, I want people to have good experiences playing mafia so we can play more of it in the future.

I think the discussion has been helpful to see where everyone comes from. We never all agree on this but I think we're not far off from each other.
hmmmmmmmm

something bugs me about this post

though i'm not sure what

I have a 12 hour flight and then I'm going to sleep. You guys should post more in the interim while I'm gone, though.

Also, I'm getting a tentative town vibe from turtle based on his last post. I may revise my opinion on the future.

Just because you said you were suspicious of Taeryn, and then he did too?

People who agree with me are obviously town!

Could the GM PM Trar? Maybe he doesn't know it started?

If so Trar you really need to check in. Even just a "hi" is something.

I mean its not much but it is something.

I only mention this because I almost missed the vote thread and then again I would have missed this thread if I didn't go looking for it.

It's also interesting to me that Rufferto jumped on Taeryn despite Johnny saying basically the same thing, only shorter.

Nevermind Trar knows. Because I just told him the game was going on in IRC.

That is all I said. There was no mafia talk! I have witnesses if necessary!

For that to happen, I'd have had to open the thread before sending out roles. That, sir, is a bridge too far.

Gerad and Egar both posted in reaction to Rufferto's calling turtle town for agreeing with him (false also alluded to it). I actually think it makes Rufferto more likely town.

I don't know that I necessarily find him suspicious for it, just trying to tease out his reasoning. This seems like a particularly information-light D1 even as D1s go.

No votes will mean no lynch, but hey, it could be worse.

21.5 hours remain.

interesting... I don't remember ever being in a game with a no lynch option. I presume its a bad thing because you can't catch mafia if you don't take a shot and you're giving them a free turn. On the other hand, if you kick out a town player, you're helping the mafia toward a win so, i can see the allure, but I'm guessing its still a sub-par option.

Either way, Mogri said no votes equals no lynch and orchestrating that seems unlikely. I presume even one vote would result in a lynch.

Yes, your guess is right. Take no shots and you lose.

my vote's on Taeryn.

I don't have anything better to go on at the moment. Everyone else: thoughts? Any suspicions?

If you all still want to go the other route and kill the quiet players, we can also lynch Trar, who still hasn't posted today, but I don't think it's going to give us much, if anything.

I do, actually, want to go the other way.

I accuse Trar.

If you're not posting or even voting, you're not giving anyone any data. You're keeping yourself in the same state as you were at the start of the first day, which does nothing to help us find the mafia.

It's not so much the fact that he agreed with me, it's more the way he did it. He parroted my post in suspecting Taeryn, which could be considered suspicious, but he did it in such a nebulous way, i.e."I don't know why I think this"
That I actually read it as town instead.

Before this day ends, I'd like one more thing from everyone: who is your top suspect? Who do you think is most likely town? What makes them suspect/trustworthy to you?

I'm voting Trar too. I'm hoping he pops in and says something but until he does my vote is on him

Ugh, I got nothing. Um... tentative vote for Trar. I don't like it, though. I'm having a hard time justifying any choice at this point.

No one, really, to be honest. Trar is either/or. I think Trar, regardless of alliance, is either busy or just plum forgot/didn't notice it was happening. Everyone else isn't saying to much and none of the accusations so far hold much water to me. If I see something more substantial than being "bugged", then I'd like to hear it.

my initial thinking is that rufferto is most likely town.
Why: well, i interpret his opinions on me and turtle as attempting to figure out things and he's the only one who's tried to do much in the way of investigation of anybody.
Grain of salt:i tend to interpret people who are wrong about me as making an honest mistake based on the fact that i always have a hard time writing something in mafia games that sounds natural. I'm always second guessing myself and so when people suspect me, I tend to think "well, that's understandable. I am pretty terrible at this" instead of thinking someone is intentionally trying to turn folk against me.

for most likely mafia: no idea. almost nobody has made any real opinions known about any player in the game at all. Gerad for example has really stuck to mechanics or seeking clarification. Turtle doesn't like my post, but was coy with a reason. Maybe with some votes on the table, things will clarify some over night?

Hard for me to see much worth voting someone for right now. I'm leaning towards voting Trar, since nobody looks guilty to me; a cipher is better than town -leaning people.

Ill do a rundown and vote tomorrow.

I vote for Trar

As I previously stated, generally its better to go after someone who we think is mafia, but at this point, I'm not suspicious of literally anyone in the game... and given the other votes, I think that's a common feeling. So at that point, we're down to random luck or at least eliminating a player early that isn't going to give us any info to work from later.

I vote Trar

as well. My thoughts are the same as Taeryn's; no one looks particularly suspicious, and it's better to go for a cipher than someone who has a track record of not looking suspicious.

As I said previously Trar knows that the game is going on because I told him about it on IRC.

As for suspicions of people now there isn't a lot to go on, and normally, this is where I accuse Gerad but right now he isn't setting off my mafia sense.

Weird, huh?

Dtsund has been very quiet. I can't remember if that is normal of him or not? Doesn't matter I like more participation than he is currently giving.

I don't know what is going on with Taeryn and Rufferto. I don't know if it matters.

A turtledoesbite and Johnny Unusual have totally slipped off my radar.

If I had to pick someone as a top suspect after the person I have voted for. It would have to be

Turtle/Johnny as both of them have been active but completely forgettable. Which is a perfect place for Mafia to be.
