Yeah, that's actually super reminiscent of Lights Out, when he subbed in for shadow.

I am looking forward to discuss this eschaton nonsense with some people. Full disclosure though I intend to share our discussion with the thread first thing D2, we're not going through this again tomorrow. Could be useful to bounce ideas around, though.


No problems with that, assuming you're going to still redact the character names.
What is Mafia? It is a never ending time sink where seemingly trivial inconsequential passing comments are often portrayed as cast iron proof of guilt. Run away backs rather whilst you still can. For me, there is no hope.

I’m enjoying this one so far. But I don’t think this was a lazy vote, and I think no matter how the flip comes up, town will make use of what happened today, and that’s the best I can ask for.


Shit, I'm not asking you to do that work. I just hate feeling so unconvinced and then, when I compare my level of doubt to everyone else being in the same place I am, get that feeling of "Somebody's making me look like a fool".

If Keir is town, I will have some soul searching to do about how I'm reading things. That flip will yield some good info. I am not panicking if he does, though of course I'd prefer it if he's scum.

Wait, wasn't that the one that got called? I worked my ass off in that game. It didn't get called because I lost interest, it got called because kim and ZZ blew up.
Did you know there’s a faceless old woman who secretly lives in your home? It’s true. She’s there now. She’s always there, just out of your sight. Always just out of your sight.

Yeah, he just subbed in and went "Oh, are ya'll gonna vote me off, cause that'd be cool that I won't have to catch up then". And like idiots, of course, we all stopped voting him. :D

I'm back. As there's not much time pre-deadline, anything in particular I need to read before EOD which may be relevant to the decision here?

Ok. I got my hackles up a bit at the “discussing D&D” comment.
