sorry for my absence. i work weekends and have virtually no time.
my thoughts on the day so far, but not formatted well... just some things that stood out to me (or are worthy of remembering), with links rather than quotation marks:
[list=A][*] Confirm! Muahahahhahahahahaha*cough*ha. . . just wanted to do that once --> probably nothing, but interesting to see from rishaed, who has had other scummy posts since then.
[*] Vote Jonty Because obviously we are talking scifi. I havent even read/seen anything about lovecraft before and it is quite apparent after 3-4 pages of talk about it. This seems to be a pathetic attempt at throwing out a vote and hoping someone will take the bait and go too far with it. -->ok, a post from ghostly where he seems to be trying to be lynching a foreigner (or just someone who doesnt know lovecraft that well)

vote no lynch
I am pretty sure everyone has a pretty cool role. Let's let everyone go into night. -->do i even need to comment? doom confirms several times, then this. he is trying to get us to lynch him, i think. i believe that he may be VT, but i think that if we lynch him he will gain powers. he may lose a vote, but he will be able to manipulate the actions of the dead or something. we need to watch him closely.

I really don't have anything to add to the discussion at this point, but I don't want to be inactive in this game. I'll rescind my joke vote and continue to monitor the thread.
Hmm, in order give us some more stuff to discuss and to keep you involved I am going to ask you some questions. You can respond however you wish, but note that your reaction will color my opinion of you for the rest of the game.
1. Do you think this game has a traditional scum faction?
2. Do you think this game has a cult?
3. What do you make of these rule details:
/ wrote:5. Once I post your death scene, you may not speak in the thread at all unless I say otherwise, goodbye messages are not allowed at all in this game for certain reasons.
7. Night talk is not permitted at all in this game for certain reasons
4. What do you think is the most important thing for you to do
A: in this game
B: and on Day 1 on specifically
in order to achieve your win condition?
To answer your first two questions, my gut feeling tells me there are 3 parties in this game. Whether they are cult, scum, whatever, my feeling tells me there are three parties. But all I have to go on is my gut. I think the answer to number 3 is in the thread already (a very credible answer I think - people who die may not really be dead!). On day 1, we need to do SOMETHING in this game - get some pressure on some people and lynch someone. In my previous two games on this board, both have ended without a day one lynch or really anything to go on. IMO, this benefits town the least.
What I find scummy is your aggressive post, especially the quote in red. Why did you direct these questions only to me? Why does my response color your opinion of me for the rest of the game?
Finally, on the topic of inactivity, the deadline is Wednesday, so I think now is a good time to start pressuring. I understand people have lives and midterms. But we need to do something. If they are too busy to post, maybe we should just lynch them.
Fastposted by betiko --> just wanted to make sure this whole exchange is on record. despite spiesr being in his meta by doing this sort of thing, it is very scummy. he is rolefishing, and is trying to act like he must be right because he is spiesr. the same goes for the post where he votes me and asks why we shouldn't lynch me. he is trying to get me to reveal something about myself. im not going to do it. for this, i am going to vote spiesr
From http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=213&t=178916&start=165 i think we can infer that doom is hiding SOMETHING or other, but we will have to wait and see what it is.
FOS everyone who wants to lynch the inactives. we are not short on good cases, and the inactives can be replaced. we dont want to risk making them stronger/scum/something worse by lynching them.
FOS doom and rishaed for pushing a no lynch. notice rishaed is following doom around.
