Fos Sam G for making the statement he would leave his vote were it was,but didnt want to be associated with gregg's post (which automatically did associate him with it) and then after being informed Jak has full claimed trying to stay with that pressure. Why would you keep pressure with a deadline loming on someone who has claimed?
if he is lying it will out shortly.

But rather than to assist with Gregg you sidestep it.


jgordon, let me explain your error in your post. I believe, as I have laid out in several posts, that Jak is scum. So, he can claim all he wants that he is this and that and whatever, but I think he is guilty. So its not about putting pressure on him, its about me firmly believing he is guilty. If I am wrong, then so be it.

And the part about greg? I was trying to be a little grumpy at Greg because his post wasn't contributing anything to the case built on Jak. I think that you would agree that his post was maybe one of the most epically worst posts in mafia history with a vote attached to it. I was saying, in my own (and obviously mistaken way) that if he was going to build a case against someone, it better be based on some facts. Greg obviously got the point when he then posted a little better argument about Jak and his guilt. If you note, I thought that was better, so I didn't comment on it. Maybe I should have. So here goes:

Greg - That post was a little better. At least there is some legit arguments in it.

So you see jgordon, its about me completely thinking I'm right about Jak. He hasn't proven to me that he is NOT scum. And if Jak flips scum (provided he gets lynched), then your post is a huge deflection and I think I know my next case.

Bout time you came back. :P

y'all aint down for pressuring jak?


Read: "Noooo guuuuuys, go after jak instead! He's a bad guy!"

As scummy as I think Jak is, Greg's move was a pretty blatant bandwagon. I'd like to see how this plays out, but you just seem more interested in arguing in circles with jak.

Regardless of how good or bad man's arguments are. he has been able to confirm his role as a vote stealer (or did no one notice Victor's missing vote and the ??? vote on Mr. Squirrel?) Personally I will take a vote manipulative role as non-scum 85% of the time (too strong a role to give mafia in most circumstances).

I generally agree with strike's latest post.

I think it's kind of ironic how many people bandwagon greg for bandwagoning...

I think that vodean is acting strangely.

I already said that I thought we should go after an inactive or one of the people in the middle of things. To be sure, greg was not one of the people I was thinking. However, as always, I appreciate some good Day 1, er Day 1: The Sequel, pressure. So, I will vote greg for pressure if something hasn't happened the next time I check in.

Heya Comm, so you don't have to look back to see it, there are a few questions asked of you.
1. Your role name (and who, if anyone that was historically)
2. The current status of your vote
3. The current status of your power

Unvote for now

And to others, I seriously caution you, scum may have uber-powerful roles, so leave any preconceptions behind, last golden pantheon I had 8 busdrives that could be used AT THE SAME TIME, there was a role that could as a last resort; end the entire game at will and have a random chance of giving scum the win out of nowhere.

I have had nothing much to add, I dislike posting short obvious agreement posts. Typically when I post I like it to have some sort of substance not the usual fluff, nevertheless, I do apologize for my inactivity. I am still disappointed how the end of day one went as well as the lack of much defined activity last night. I was further disappointed when many of the posts today centered around flavor speculation. I just haven't really seen anything that has stood out, outside of what has already been noticed. I really believe there is more to be learned from hensow's actions yesterday, and I still remain suspicious of aage. I will return my vote to where it was yesterday, VOTE HENSOW, in hopes that pressure will draw out some more scummy behavior. I also hope that votes on vode, jak, and greg will be productive, and I look forward to what we can learn from com9.

And normally, I would agree with this sentiment (vote-steal is often seen as a scum role, but this is a fallacy). However, the evidence seems to suggest that there are two vote stealing roles, with both Sully and Com9/Illy having their votes stolen. That's not the kind of role that would be likely to double on one side. To elaborate:

In a hypothetical 25 player game (not this one, for the sake of argument) there are likely to be multiple investigative roles. This will occur for a number of reasons, such as the faceted abilities of different investigators and the possibility of town being up the river by Day 2 if a lone cop were to go down. I'd like to focus on the former, however. You see, there's utility to having, say, a cop, a watcher, and a tracker as opposed to having only one or two. Each one has a different job and gets different things out of their actions. The town is then richer for the presence of all of them.

A vote stealer does not function in this way. It does not have the depth to provide that sort of utility in having more than just one. In addition, its inherent utility is far more advanced then that of a cop. For instance, if I were a cop and thought Player A was scummy, I'd investigate him and act accordingly. With a vote stealer, it's more complicated than that. If I thought player A was scummy as a vote stealer, I'd steal his vote in order to stifle him, but that's all I really can do. It can help to get him lynched and possibly prevent him from arguing in his own defense (lack of interest mindgame, etc.) and that's all. There is no other way to expand on that ability, save for some serious creativity (Ex. Squirrel's role in CYOC, but that game was intended to be a bit outlandish. Even that isn't out of the umbrella of existing individually).

Therefore:

1. I suggest that one of our vote stealers is scum, because it is not to town's benefit to have two.
2. We know for a fact that Jak is a vote stealer
3. If we accept 1. and 2., there's a 50/50 chance that Jak is scum. There've been better odds, but considering the way Jak has been acting and what stage the game is in, I'd say it's worth taking a stab.

I had a question about that. What is "reponce"?

As to your previous post, it's true that vote stealing isn't very useful to town as you can also just lynch the person you think is scum. On the other hand, you would need leverage to do that and as a vote stealer you don't have that much. You're going to have a hard time convincing the rest of town. I think you can look at it in a roleblocker kind of way, but instead of blocking the role you block the vote. The act of stealing the vote so that you can use the vote isn't that significant, because what's one vote on 25 people?

True enough Pancake. I mentioned that earlier as far as two Vote Stealers. However I won't give it 50/50 odds.

First, we have no confirmation that Illiad's vote really was stolen (and since it was his secret vote we really can't get confirmation). I would tend to believe him but there isn't confirmation.

Second, Jak has come forward and admitted to stealing Victor's however no one has come forward to admit that they stole Iliad's. So when a Vote Stealer willingly comes forward admitting it, I tend to believe them over the clandestine stealer.

It's still more of a 75/25 split.
