Ok sorry guys, got real-lifed all over the shop last night. Writing this post in an email on my work comp then sending it to my phone, so I apologise if it’s a formatting nightmare! Here goes:
Not much to say about the rolespec – I think seeing as we’re completely in the dark about the number of each role and their relevance, it’ll be hard to know much until D2. I think, however, we should be open to the possibility of both a Zombie Recruiting faction and a Zombie/Scientist killing faction being present.
matt’s vote seems like a bit of a stretch, but it is day 1 I don’t think his point’s completely invalid.

For undoubtedly on of the worse reasons to vote someone.
I’m afraid I flat out disagree with you, Tim. While it’s far from conclusive proof, what is conclusive proof on D1? Especially that early. At least matt was looking for something, and it’s possible his reasoning is accurate.
I’m willing to believe it was a shot in the dark to start conversation, but you’re right that it’s pretty weak of him to remove the vote as soon as you criticise it. However, you seem just as bloodthirsty to go after his weakness.
t1mm01994 wrote:Oh come on, I find that hard to buy. “I’m trying to make people speak, but I’ll back of straight away” does not seem like the best strategy.
I really don’t like this – it seems far more aggressive than I’m used to seeing from you. While I agree his behaviour’s odd, out of the two of you it’s you (tim) whose behaviour seems more different from the ‘norm’.
I’m going to FoS: fshfood
for his (I think ‘his’, sorry if I’m wrong!) post at the bottom of page 1. With the only noteworthy thing that has happened being the exchange between matt and tim, it seems odd to me to make a “here’s me catching up” post but not commenting on it at all, and instead only providing role spec.

This doesn’t sit right with me – nobody wants to get lynched, especially D1. Are you implying that not wanting to get lynched is a scum tell? I’m not comfortable with the weird implication of this post.
Also I really dislike your player analysis.I’m not sure how you can classify tim as “netural and kind of lurky”. He’s one of the few that posted actual content this game, and there’s almost no way it can be read as neutral. Also fshfood “neutral for a bit of active lurking” – sure this should be leaning scum. Active lurking is hardly justifiable as town. Everyone else, if you think they’re lurking/not providing content, why not just say that instead of replicating their posts? A lot of your
post is active lurking really!
I’d also like to know why you thought JSO was a good vote choice after all that. Do you think he’s intentionally
lurking and trying to fly under the radar? If not and you were truly just voting for the lurkers so we don’t have to deal with them, _infina_ would have made much more sense to vote for. If it were active lurking you were afraid of, why not vote for one of the people you had listed as an active lurker? Or really, you should have voted for me
. Promising content but not delivering is surely far more suspicious? If this were my first game with you you’d be getting my vote, but I’m really trying to accept your meta is ‘always appears scummy on D1’, so I’ll just FoS: Snark
roband, I’d also like to know the reason you think a NL would be ok? Is it because you’re a jester?
I’m getting a good townie vibe from Vieto, and pretty much completely neutral from everyone else. It’d be good if JSO could participate a bit more (add me to the “I know it’s hypocritical but lurkers are bad” list), but it’s not really worth getting him lynched over. Fortunately tied votes will still give us a lynch, so I don’t have to choose between our current 2-vote candidates to avoid the NL. As such, Vote: t1mm01994
Because despite my criticism of others, it’s consistent with how I’ve seen them play town, while t1mm’s posts aren’t, and seem like he was just going after the easy target.
