By the way, what exactly do you mean by "so we can decide whether it's gonna by a lynchable issue or not here?" I think what you meant to say was: "I am going to reveal now so that there is less chance that you lynch me for this, as I was forthcoming with it at game start."

I am not saying that means you're scum. I find this reveal to be somewhat town-indicative. But, I'm not sure yet. And I'd like you to reveal your powers so that we can see if your powers corroborate your story about missing the deadline and had them selected randomly. I feel like, if you actually missed the deadline and chose your powers randomly, you're town. Scum would be much less likely to do that. And if you did not miss the deadline, and this is a ruse, you're scum. So...I'd really like to know what your powers are, and I think that information is more useful to us than the information security in the event that you are town.

Obviously, you could lie about your powers. But, that is something we can check.

Oh complete honesty? The bolded was exactly what I was thinking. We don't have many mislynches here. This is the type of thing which if it emerges at LYLO can become a distraction and can be used to force through a mislynch. This could cost the town the game. And if I were scum and a townie revealed this at LYLO I'd go after that guy like a hungry lion chasing a wounded antelope. Like I love a bit of moral righteousness as town but sometimes compromising that a LITTLE bit can be useful as town. I felt like this was one of those situations. At least that way if you're gonna lynch me for it you'll likely still have another day to recover things. And, hopefully, more sensible town voices may mean I'm less likely to be lynched at all.

Why is Aes in this list? I thought you were with me on liking his response and keeping the known argument out of the thread.

My problem here is this is typical Durga, and we know that Fatmo is usually a slow starter who gets better as we go. So right now, what are you basing this list on? Straight up POE? Why is sjg off this list?

Sjg, I’m probably not going to be super high impact this game. I was going to reserve until ufo needed me to step in to start the game. It’s just how it’s going to be this game, if that’s going to be something you can’t get past you should probably kill me now. Obviously gonna do my best, but I wouldn’t expect high impact make things happen Nanook this game, I don’t have the time or energy or computer access for that. So I’ll be a bit more low key and reading big picture.

Cool noted. I'll judge you based on an expectation of sensible big-picture analysis rather than snarky nook back-and-forths.

I like it but it’s not outside his scum range imo.

Sjg is off the list because sjg is probably town.

Hey! I'm everyone's favourite sjg. Defending me is an honour and a pleasure and an opportunity you should all be extremely grateful for.
