I haven't played with Oldhoss a ton, but I feel like he is in early Lynch contention each time I do. Is he just naturally pingy?

I don't feel naturally pingy, but occasionally find myself with some early D1 votes that I don't agree with.

I think both dejo and Kermit are playing consistent with their normal D1’s. Kermit is jokey and dejo is a little floaty. As the game picks up momentum so do they. I think they both become easier to read as the game goes on.

One thing we somewhat messed up when we played this in person was claiming characters too early.
We thought powers would not necessarily be connected to character names (like HP could just be a Villager).
This was very much not the case.
So goods should be a bit guarded about just throwing your character out there.


In that game, how did you find the horcruxes? Is that something we should be trying to do now in addition to trying to discern who are the Death Eaters?

I died early and didn't watch it all played out. So I may not be best to answer that. But I think they just generally hunted evil. And the wolves were each holding a horcrux? And some evils that were not in the wolf pack also had a horcrux? So basically good had to kill all of those people before an attempt to kill Voldemort would work. Good lost.

Good had to just kill all the evil 'maxes' before they could kill Voldemort.
The only items were wands handed out that were one day guns.

Harry had a horcrux too, remember.

Totally forgot about this. I also died pretty early but was an informed evil so had a bit more info.

Hello. I'm only half-way through reading the first Harry Potter book, so I'm probably going to miss some references.

For example, I currently think a horcrux is a terrible sandwich with very pointy corners and too much mayo.
You are for sure going to get spoiled.

This actually reminds me of another point to bring up from first game.
It was not set in any particular time of the series. Characters from all 7 books were present.

There are definitely items this game. One showed up in my inventory at dawn. And the name of the item sounds pretty evil, but I swear someone dropped this at my feet.
I'm wondering if someone chose to give it to me or if I randomly started with it.
I plan to pass it on.

I'm here, but frankly I'm pretty low motivation right now due to my previous game. I'll try to perk up today.

I can't figure out if evil mimikyu would be so bold to basically ask for GSes to hint or claim so openly.

Maybe aux evil at worst?

Evil mimikyu is just as bold as good mimikyu.

The perspective of this post sounds off. [vote mimi]

I feel like a more good/neutral phrasing would be along the lines of "I (or mimikyu if using 3rd person) behave the same as evil and good"

Also...

So if you're certain you're role is going to no reveal, why not claim your role here along with all your 'abilities'?

I'm thinking [vote no lynch] might not be a bad idea.

We don't know how the Death Eaters are spread between locations. It might be better to get some more information first.

+'s to Royal for suggesting this. Feels like a ploy to draw heat akin to a NF.

madeline must survive. Not for any game mechanic reasons but just because of the poems. Oh I suppose I also think she's good. I feel like an evil RP'ing like that would not have put some much information in every post already.

I disagree that evilMadeline would not do that.
But I agree on keeping her alive!

Fair. I mean it's expressing the same point.

Umm.. okay so this is weird but it's like standard syntax of sentence structure when talking about yourself you put yourself as the subject. So in this case starting with "Evil Mimi" is not like "Good mimi" reads more to me as "I [evil mimi] am behaving the same as good mimi" vs. saying "Mimi behaves the same either way" assigns no alignment to the Subject.

None of this is a smoking gun but combined with that claim I want my vote there at the moment.

Honestly, I had a minus on you until this post. I don't know that I agree with your conclusion but I like the forward momentum. I feel like evil's just fine with how lackadaisical we've been.

I didn't have a minus on him, but I agree this post sounds good!

I read her last post as more of a response to Kermit thinking Mimi seemed evil, not as an attempt to be helpful. If you're looking at "trying too hard", what do you think of oldhoss?

You're correct about my intention.

Nor can I. I think I would use the latter because that's how I talk. But someone else could equally talk like the former.

I'm kinda split on Mimi's stuff. Chats with other villages are usually pretty powerful in multi village games so it is pretty shady to immediately as who has them.

Buuuut they also don't do us good as a means for info if we don't know about them and I feel like people normally claim them right away? So it's not like asking "yo, anyone have any cool N0 views???"
