Wtf why not.

Your vote is out. Let's see

Also note guys about Tambo who he used his power on.

Likely jonty125, obviously why. Likely dj, obviously why.

Not streaker, not james. Not hotshot. Not storr.

I@pcm show us why streaker is scummy. Where is he shaky? I'm not satisfied. No one in this game should be satisfied by 2 descriptive words as a read at this point in time.

The more accurate word is deflection. As a town collective we don't want lurkers. Could you have been town, trying to get the focus back on myself? Maybe. You can say I had scummy motivation to get him to talk sure. But at the end, getting james to talk was productive. It is pro town to make sure people are active in this game. Voicing opinions, contributing to conversation at hand. Speaking of dj...... where is he...
As far as you scum. It's as simple as either you are town, tunneling (though since I've been stamping you with that label, you are talking about others more)
Or you have an agenda as mafia to make sure, I'm lynched. Trying to stop other conversations from happening. Making sure my valid points don't get talked about.

The james read on jonty.
Forced, not really. I wanted him to convince me to not vote him and vote jonty. He only has 2 options today. He could have just pushed me instead.

As for Speirs, yes I'm informing him of his options. Not opinions.
As well as his no lynch thing about me was not as black and white.

No idea what your NL comments are about.

Nah. Strongly disagree that directing actions are scummy. If I'm lynched my opinion on actions become super valid. Also mets gave a suggestion to james on what to do, why didn't you fault him?

I would hope you care that people make a smart choice about their actions. You have to admit if james checked streaker if i was lynched would be very laughable.


As far as being the activity police. Why not, people should be made acountable for things they promise.

I guess the tie is up to me. This would be a good excuse perhaps if had contributed anything to his defense at all. Going several pages back he has offered nothing. He has offered no startegy, except to jump on everyone else wagon. while Storr is passionate jonty has been a lethargic lump. He claims after a push is made and states who he targeted. Targeting DJ does not prove that DJ is mafia or Town but it does prove that Jontys claim may be real. he could be Mafia, Town or even Third party.

This post bugged me as well. You should be playing more then for self preservation. You have not made any posts of real value. While i am torn in some ways between you and james, james at least made his case and defended himself.

With a choice between you and storr, storr wins hands down in my book. A no lynch can not happen.

vote jonty

Sorry I have been absent again but this week has sucked for me overall and my continued presence here. My son fell off the slide and got messed up with concussion and now my wife but I will read up and review. There appears to be some new things going on in the day I have been in the hospital and IB's last statement has my interest. Will take some time to read but will put in my two cents in hopes to help this out.

Well, Storr, since you want to talk about generating content:

Streaker wrote:So James, all we need to give you is a 'clean' night, in a game where EVERYONE has a power? And mafia has to cooperate as well?

I hate changing my votes around like this, but I always said I was more interested in lynching jonty for reasons stated. I also believe we get more information from lynching him, especially about DJ.

I'd also like to add that any discussion about balancing power roles (i read something Storr said about town not having any investigative roles is unlikely) is moot, in a game called 'balance not included'.

Unvote, vote jonty


Please tell me what of this is new information or even valuable. Because it sounds like it came from somebody looking for a pretext to get jonty lynched. Some people look at big long posts and say "That's content" and vote. Some look and say "That's not much" (e.g., me and spiesr). Some people are scum and say "That's what I needed" (e.g. Streaker, and probably you). That's not a direct answer to your request, but it's plenty enough. He's been doing fine just coasting by for you but that's, I think, evidence of your guilt.

The more accurate word is deflection.


And that's still a ridiculous claim. Ask anyone else in this game if replacement should have been considered at that point. You thinking I'm scum over that is ludicrous.

The james read on jonty.
Forced, not really. I wanted him to convince me to not vote him and vote jonty. He only has 2 options today. He could have just pushed me instead.


He probably should have. But if you're being intimidating with your vote, it might feel like he's being forced. It's also forced in another regard: that there's really very little to it. Half of it is actually him giving Jonty points or staying neutral. He ends it with a vote, but it feels halfhearted.

As for Speirs, yes I'm informing him of his options. Not opinions.
As well as his no lynch thing about me was not as black and white.

No idea what your NL comments are about.


Yeah, you need to go back and reread what he wrote because you clearly didn't understand.

Nah. Strongly disagree that directing actions are scummy. If I'm lynched my opinion on actions become super valid. Also mets gave a suggestion to james on what to do, why didn't you fault him?

I would hope you care that people make a smart choice about their actions. You have to admit if james checked streaker if i was lynched would be very laughable.


I do. I trust them to do it themselves. Trying to orchestrate town's actions is asking for them to get fucked with. On top of that, you are highly under suspicion and you think you have a right to dictate what the town should do? THAT is laughable.

I feel like it's a mistake, but let's learn something.

Yes, we can all agree that it is better if James (or whoever) posts more. The disagree there is that you claimed that his post level provided you with some sort of information that made you think his alignment was scum. Others (like pancakemix and I) felt that his activity was independent of his alignment in this case.
StorrZerg wrote:But what about the not "risking" a long post?
Most likely he was referring that either the deadline hitting or him reaching the vote threshold before he finish typing out a long post.

Yes the Lynch is set. Based on old rules Im not sure if we are supposed to keep discussing and I will let the night start up and deal with me things to come back and get serious again when it starts back up.

Tilted Tent

Edgar Gries was not a fan of bugs. They crawled, they chirped, they stung, bit and some even smelled. What was there to like? In this way, it was not a surprise to anyone that after graduating with a PhD in Anthropology, he became a bug exterminator.

One day while on a job to exterminate some cockroaches in a barn, Edgar was questioned by a man behind him.

"What are you doing here" the man asked him.

"Well I am here to deal with the infestation?" Edgar replied.

"Huh" The man said, "You know, I have noticed an infestation here. Everywhere I look in fact nothing but undeveloped, unevolved, barely conscious pond scum totally convinced of their own superiority as they scurry about their short, pointless lives."

It was at this point that Edgar realized that he wasn't talking to a man but a giant roach wearing a man's skin, so he turned the poison on him and sprayed it until the giant roach stopped moving.

But anyways, that's all irrelevant. The point is, Edgar never really expected to be hung for something he didn't do but well...here he is.

Jonty125-Edgar Gries-Town Fumigator has been lynched.

It is now Night 2. you have 48 hours to send in night actions.

Deaths and Revivals

Dr. Stitchpunk had to work quick. He had only a little while before the nerve tissue would be too damaged to reject the transplant. If he succeeded, the man would live...but if he failed Dr. Stitchpunk would live instead. He tried not to think about it having committed himself to the cause and hurriedly prepared for the surgery. Hooking the patient up, he offered up a quick word of hope and turned the machine on. Lights flashed and faded and the man's muscles began to move. A jolt arose and with it the man rose but before Dr. Stitchpunk could celebrate his achievement, he fell dead upon the floor.

Metsfanmax-Dr. Stitchpunk-Town Suicide Reviver has sacrificed himself.

Jonty125 has been revived.

Meanwhile across town, Reginald Philman was at a bar secretly watching a man waiting for a break in his career. It was at this point the television turned to a rerun of an old episode of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" and Reginald saw Regis Philbin. Cursing the ground that Regis walked on, Reginald started toward the door but he was quickly assailed by another man and fell to the ground dead.

Storrzerg-Reginald Philman-Town Crier* has been killed.

People never really cared for Chaz. It seemed as soon as they heard his name, they had a look on their faces like his name should end with a d. That didn't matter to Chaz though as he didn't really like them either, so what of it. Well, one night while Chaz was at home, someone broke in and killed him. Finding his body the next day, many of the townsfolk cried that he probably brought it on himself but others weren't so sure.

Streaker-Chaz-Town Instigator** has been killed.

It is now Day 3, with 6 alive it takes 4 to lynch.

You have until this time next Wednesday for a lynch.

*targets one player each night, if the player is targeted for a kill (successful or otherwise), the killer's role name and ability would be revealed in thread)
**Targets one player each night and redirects their action back at himself.

Just kidding... Nice to have you back. Looks like a crazy night.

Luckily, I investigated someone who didn't die, and I should get those results back soon as proof of my role.

Mod sent after scene was posted, just a little bit of a difference

I sent my action in on PCM, so either he was targeted by Streaker or someone bus drove my actions onto Streaker. Either way, my results were that I investigated the Town Instigator.

PCM, did you get any notification of this via PM?

Yes, I'm back.

I find it odd/suspicious that James hasn't got a result yet, but I'll wait to see if anybody cares to explain. Also, I think a mass claim is due today.
