What I've read is very consistent with what I suspected, and I think that vote at EOD1 is pretty strong evidence. I'll still finish my re-read when I can, but I feel pretty good about this vote. The fact that Durga is suggesting that "it's just so obvious that she's town that me even thinking this means I am scum" is pretty damn unconvincing. If she were town, she'd be trying to engage with me; not just trying to shade me.

I'm just not going to have the same kind of time to put into this after about 5:00 pm PT today, FYI. I'll follow along from my phone, and I'll try to finish my re-read, but I won't be able to keep up to date if there is much going on.

By keeping it secret, I think it makes it much harder for scum to vote and gives us a better chance of identifying the team.


I disagree with you here. It makes it hard for the scum to vote, yes. But I think that it also makes it *much* harder for the town to figure out what direction we need to go. If both of you have active CHA it makes it very risky for the town to seriously consider more than one target.

I'd much rather you both just revealed. If we get a dipole, yay. If we don't get a dipole than at least we know what's going on in terms of who's vote matters.


As it stands, I think we need to be pretty much unanimous about our actual votes. If a scum has CHA up on a townie, then the scum can just force a mis-TK.

I think Aeschines’s reactions to the Nook/Conq Charisma discussion on Day 2 is pretty interesting. Aeschines was trying pretty hard to get us both to claim which vote we controlled. I guess a big part of that would be because there would be a 2/3 chance, from his perspective, that Town controlled his double vote, which meant that he might as well bus, I think.

If you’re scum, and two townies reveal CHA and don’t say which votes they control, I would think you would feel pretty powerless. And I would think you would just bus your partner. If it doesn’t seem like your vote is going to matter. Go get some cred.

I think he said that he was not going to around much this phase. Or, alternatively, chilling in scumchat?

Any response to my D1 re-read? Questions for me? Think I’m still scum given Kim’s reads and my late D1 push on Aeschines?

Do we need to extend the phase? Would be a shame if y’all can’t participate.
