    I haven't moved it yet, and I've already gone over my reasons why verifying the ability does absolutely nothing to change my views on the alignment of a person. As far as we know, every wolf can do that.

    - - - Updated - - -

    But hey, silly me, using someone's behavior and not their power (which I must repeat we have NO information on how that affects alignment) to decide who we murder.

    Xih.

    The likelihood of wolves having two identical PRs is not generally high.

    I don't know how AV runs the game but for a Medium Style role it would make thematic sense to have one for each alignment.

    I too expected more action, but I was really hoping for less votes for me, rather than more.

    Tough to say. Other than Murska I don't really have any suspects (considering how good my reads usually are, that probably means you are all wolves somehow ). Maybe blade for being so convinced Murska's town?

    Interesting. Bat actually was a wolf. And probably wasted their power night one or two on me. Who knows for the other night.

    This means that QTs should be safe again. They couldn't share links with other wolves. So anything said now probably won't make it back to wolves unless you say it directly to a wolf.

    To clarify, this assumption was that I was lying about their power? Correct? Makes sense. Town shouldn't trust neutrals.

    It's not really relevant now. I was worried that the pair of you (Book/gac) were a Wolf and Neutral who made a deal. I believed that Book reached out to you but was worried he used the Psychic Poltergeist ability with a cover story of being the Psychic Ghost.

    I don't think that there would be two Psychic Poltergeists so that shouldn't be a problem anymore.

    I only just noticed that AV messed up the code around the vote count and I know it's most likely an innocent mistake but there is genuinely part of me that is like... "What does this mean... Is this part of the bastard rules? But that's just normal werewolf paranoid I guess."

    Another night, another exorcism. This one floated up to heaven.


    Book Wombat died. They were the Psychic Ghost.

    You are the Psychic Ghost. Your win condition is the elimination of all non-Ghosts except the Medium, whose status does not affect your victory one way or the other.

    Every night, you may target two players who have not been eliminated from the game. You may select yourself as one of the targets, if you wish. I will create a conversation QT named "Afterlife: [target 1] / [target 2]", and privately post a link to that QT in the personal QTs of target 1, target 2, and you. You are allowed to talk in this QTs, if you wish. If the two targets already have a conversation QT between them, your power fails.

    I mean... It's not personal. But based on evidence formed from ignoring long evidence posts because I don't really care who is a wolf at this point. Especially since literally none have tried to chat with me.

    My thoughts exactly. I'm really hoping that you're a wolf, so I can weaponize my ability to accidentally screw with you but with my normal luck I'll probably get you killed and find out you're some really important town role.

    In addition to her weird first post and her very "Oh, by the way I'm totally Town" second post, didn't Emmy claim very early in the last couple of games? Not doing it this game doesn't mean anything on it's own but it seems worth pointing out.

    These first few posts were all against people who have turned up town. Not too surprising but I don't see anything to analyze in them.

    Not sure. I'll reread it tomorrow when I'm back home and should have more time. People seemed to jump to Apogee pretty quickly, so maybe?

    I'm leaning slightly towards town on bladescape and no idea about Aventine.

    I'd say Emmy as a wolf for the reasons I stated earlier and BW for town, though that's mostly gut feeling.

    Quote Originally Posted by CaoimhinTheCape

    I suppose he could confirm it in a QT, since it seems unlikely that the wolves would have another QT-creating power.
    Non committal about people on the Apogee wagon (later accuses Murska hard).

    The reads on blade and Ave are interesting since they're still alive. That line alone isn't enough yet.

    Emmy and BW both dead. Actually, everyone in that group Snow suggested is dead (3 town, 1 Wolf).

    Finally, he questions me about knowing gac is medium.

    Quote Originally Posted by Batcathat View Post

    Makes sense. I guess that means you're confirmed now. Technically I suppose you could be either Wolf or Town with a similar power but it seems unlikely there would be another Wolf with that power and I can't see why you'd claim neutral as town (I guess maybe to make yourself less of a NK target? But that seems pretty unlikely).

    Would you mind sharing your reasoning behind choosing Cao and Blade for your QT?

    As promised, I went back and looked at the Apogee wagon but I didn't really see anything new. If there was bussing, it'd probably be Murska and/or Xi but don't really see anything pointing to it.
    Mentions Murska and Xi. Well, if I had read his posts more closely this probably would have been a red flag (from neutral on Murska to definitely wolf).


    Quote Originally Posted by Batcathat View Post

    I don't know what to think about the Murska/BW theory, I need to go back and reread some things.

    Gut feeling or do you have some mysterius medium insight in the matter?

    Quote Originally Posted by Batcathat View Post

    Two votes and zero motivation. I kind of suspect that gac (whether or not helping the wolves) has some selfish motivations. Assuming he's honest about his wincon, I'm one of the people he still need to contact but only as long as I'm alive.

    Murska following along without any explanation seems shady, especially in combination with Snow's arguments.

    Do you have an actual case for that? Voting Apogee is certainly a point in Murska's favor but as has already been pointed out, it's hardly irrefutable evidence and following up a unexplained vote with an unexplained vote doesn't scream trustworthy to me (even if I hadn't been the target of the votes).

    That said, I'm not married to the idea of lynching Murska, but I don't see any other good candidates at the moment.
    Quote Originally Posted by Batcathat View Post

    Quote Originally Posted by Murska

    I don't see why you couldn't do a clever/ballsy move and then hang back, whether for tactical reasons (if that's what you did, it seems to have worked quite well) or just because you're busy.

    Anyway, if you have some actual suspicions against me and didn't just jump at gac's vote, would you care to share them?

    Yeah, and instead of Snow or someone else who had an actual chance to get lynched. I missed the latter half of that day (I thought that I would have time to post before EoD and that nothing much was going to change anyway, obviously I was sorely mistaken on both counts ).

    Or Aventine, since not voting for Apogee is apparently a huge red flag.





    So, a lot of BatCat's posts are about people who have already died. Neutral read to light suspicion on Aventine, gave a slight town read on blade. Had some back and forth with me but I'll let y'all judge if there's anything to learn from that.

    Busy, sorry.

    Out of everyone, Caoimhin played yesterday the way a wolf stereotypically would.

    Defends Murska for townie points. Tries to find a different wagon he thinks he can get me on. Then at the end jumps on the bat wagon well after it makes any sort of difference. Normally I'd say joining a wolf-lynching wagon after it doesn't matter is pretty NAI, kinda by definition. But the way he was avoiding it and trying to find an alternative, then jumped on late feels like fear of ending up off-wagon.

    But at this point it appears I am dead. It is what it is, LYLO tomorrow. Assuming AV didn't put four wolves in a 13 player game.

    blade still remains worth looking into. Getting so tunnel-visioned on finding something I said that could be shown to be wrong, that he ends up arguing that the difference between him and rogue is that he was wolfier than rogue is still...something. It's either, in his own words, trying to discredit my reads, or he really did get so defensive that he lost track of the bigger point and just needed to find some way to say I was wrong about something.

    And voting for me here isn't exactly a great look. If me and bat were scumbuddies I take Caoimhin up on the offer to go after Xi. I use what he said as an excuse, pivoting to agreeing with his incorrect statement that my logic points to Xi more than Murska, and with bat joining us set up a tie-breaker. Or I bus. Or something. Me and bat being buddies is naïve analysis.

    Huh. Given the options, I can see how that's the best option you have. To address it though:

    Yes. I was very much trying to bait you and BatCat to move onto a different wagon and see if you both jumped over. I told bladescape and gac the idea in our group chat. You obviously saw what I was doing and didn't bite.

    My vote on Bat shouldn't give me any points, you're right there.

    By the same token, why wouldn't Wolf!Cao eventually "see the reasoning" of your case against Murska and make it a tie, rather than pull you to a different wagon? If I'm looking for a tie, it's sitting right in front of me. Or I bus. or something.




    BatCatHat and I as partners doesn't make sense for Day 3.

    - As a Wolf who is going to bus BatCat, I don't hesitate. I put my vote on BatCat early for points and only move if another wagon opens up.
    - As a Wolf who is not bussing, we coordinate during the Night phase to agree on who to push for. Having BatCat vote for someone I've already said I trust is shooting our team in the foot, since I couldn't join that wagon.



    Your case also doesn't account for anything earlier in the game. On Day 1, I was an early voter on the Apogee. At the time that I voted for Apogee, it was Snow-4, RA-3, Apogee-2, Aventine-2. The RA wagon was falling apart and I had my vote on gac. Snow and RA trust each other and are actively looking for another wagon.

    Why would Wolf!Cao vote a team member when I could come up with some reason to vote you? I could make some sort of comment how I don't like your case on bladescape and push you up to 3 votes. Snow and RA are looking to vote anyone else - if I push Town!Aventine up to 3 votes they could both join and be safe. I'd save a teammate with a power, plus get people suspicious of anyone else who voted you (had you flipped town).

    I've also had a chat with gac open since the start of Day 2. There's been plenty of opportunity for the Wolf team to kill bladescape and give me a free chat with a Neutral. At the very least I could have tried to convince gac to make a chat with my partner and kill whoever the other member of the chat was going to be.

    End Of Day Four


    That day was quiet, with their numbers so dwindled. One outcast spirit was targeted for their association with some of the passed-on saboteurs, but when the investigators go to work, the spirit floated into the sky instead of into the ground.


    Aventine was killed. They were a Ghost.

    You are a Ghost. Your win condition is the elimination of all non-Ghosts except the Medium, whose status does not affect your victory one way or the other.
