Guys, my checking in for the next few days will be very sporadic. My grandmother just passed away.

Very sorry to hear that JGLB.

This game should be the furthest thing from your mind.

There are nine villagers. I named them this morning.

Think of me as an Old Testament YHWH-like figure. I hang out, occasionally tell you what the rules are, and occasionally declare you dead for no good reason.

Yeah, I get that. What I am asking, Mr. Old Testament Dude, is can you influence the events like Moses’s God could? Was the past game you linked some sort of Burning Bush, or are you 100% neutral?

Paul D was the narrator of that game. I was a villager.

Is the narrator of any game 100% neutral? Again, I apologize for my ignorance.

Condolences to JGLB.  The following, while possible in poor taste, is not a joke.

I say we kill JGLB.  He’s not going to be able to play effectively, nor should he.  It is basically a crapshoot at this time in any event.  My only concern is not to kill the seer, and his behaviour has been very unseerlike.

I vote to kill JGLB.

If he isn’t, I want my money back.

But seriously, yes he is neutral.

On the one hand, he did some work on my farm and caused no trouble to me and mine.

On the other hand, he is a mysterious stranger and we didn’t have any werewolves till he showed up.

I’m taking my goats to the movies, so I need to cast a preliminary vote in case I don’t check in again in time.

Looks like my options are:

Scotto, per my earlier vendetta

JGLB, mysterious stranger

JLAC, per the previous plans of my erstwhile ally, although now iffy

Daryn, getting on CW’s bandwagon


Hmm.

I’ll have the goats vote and make a decision in the next fifteen minutes

I am 100% neutral. I might occasionally throw in a joke like “that’s just what a werewolf would say” but please don’t take that as any kind of hint.

Ok, the goats are following CW’s lead and going for Daryn. They are suspicious of his quiet nature.

I am sorry for JGLB’s loss. And I will not get any further than this in cross-referencing it with the second verse of a Warren Zevon song.

Upon further reflection, from what little I know now, I stand by my original JLAC vote, especially because of the Teal and Black crack.

Official vote: JLAC

Sorry to hear it, JGLB.  Best wishes and condolences to your family.

Reading the whole thread at once is interesting, mostly from seeing what assumptions and roles people are bringing into the game.  CW is assuming an almost parodic rationality stance.  Bourbon is playing the hysterical loon card.  JLAC is the devil’s advocate.  Daryn is sitting in the corner observing and speaking out after assessing the lay of the land.  And “selflessly” picking JGLB to go.  Hmm. I’m going with the crowd, torch and pitchfork in hand.  Daryn.
