    I posted earlier before I had really read through everything and checked up on my QuickTopics.

    Sounds like AV claimed they scried some other folk (at least Elenna, The Outsider). They also claimed they scried me, so she's at least lying about one thing (how many scried) if not much more (that she's Accountant). Or she guess right who would be lynched and thus got a scry, if that wolf power works that way, but I don't really understand its mechanics and don't think it could have given a scry Night 1.

    Based on how much she lied last game, that doesn't necessarily make me think her a wolf, but, well, my vote is staying on her for now. Especially after last round putting the highest suspicion on her or flyinglemur.

    Also, oblivionkeeper never responded to my QuickTopic. Did any of you get a response from him before his demise?

    I have received two claims for the role of contingency in my amassing network. Of the two, [color=ďredĒ]gac53[/color] is the one not acting like it.

    Gac3, sorry. Iíll red it once Iím not on a phone.

    So, we have two competing claims, which means one of them is a wolf... except we only have Xihirli's word for it that there are competing claims. I could see a wolf lying about a network (or even starting their own network) in an attempt to prevent town networking effectively. If nothing else, wolf!Xihirli could get us to kill two townies this way before being proven a liar, which would be pretty nice for the wolves.

    On the other hand, we know basically for sure that AV has been lying. But AV being weirdly cryptic and unhelpful, and being this obvious with it, is something I mostly remember them doing as town. But a) they could be a wolf imitating their previous town play (insert WIFOM here) and b) lynching a townie who's being cryptic and unhelpful isn't exactly the worst possible outcome.

    I think I'll leave my vote on AV for now, but I'm open to persuasion. Specifically, Xihirli, what do you mean by "not acting like it"? i.e. why do you think gac is the one lying? And how do you get enough claims to amass a network, anyways?

    Please don't answer this. If oblivion did manage to create a town network before dying, we really don't need to tell the wolves who's in it.

    Ah; good point.
    Yeah, probably best not to answer me. I'm curious if oblivionkeeper didn't respond to anyone or just ignored me. But I guess me knowing does nothing to help and could help the wolves, so, yeah, don't answer me.

    TBH I'm still waiting to see what some people are willing to reveal to me privately. What I'll say for now is that I believe town's best option today is lynching gac3, and town's second best option today is lynching me. Maybe I'll survive to share my knowledge with you all tomorrow. Or maybe I'll die today and...share it anyway.

    Network is a strong word I donít think I used.
    Three different people have claimed seer to me, and two, when pressured, switched their claim to Contingency.
    And the only one of the two who threw their neck on a chopping block so they could best use their village power after amassing a huge amount of information was AvatarVecna.
    So that left Gac3.

    Network is a strong word you absolutely used.

    I agree that there's a possibility that AvatarVecna is contingency, but this behaviour seems strange even if she is. My current assumption is that she's a wolf, she's being needlessly cryptic and self-voting (a vote that she's no doubt poised to retract at a moment's notice if someone else is voted up) to make us feel as though actually lynching her would be playing into her hands, and she's doing her best to get claims from the entire town so that the wolves know who to kill next.

    If she's really gonna pull what's known as a pro gamer move once she's dead, I'm happy to indulge her - and at the moment, I have no actual evidence that anyone else is remotely wolfy until she's dead and gone anyway. If she's telling the truth, it's entirely possible that she's right: one of the best plays is to lynch her now and remove all doubt.

    Or hey, alternatively: lynch gac3, then network with me in the night before the wolves kill me for knowing too much.

    Oh btw, just asking because nobody who's talked to me yet has answered: has anybody heard from the Friendly Annoyance? If you have, don't tell me who they are, that's not necessary, but knowing that they're involved might make networking a bit easier.

    Contingency Planner, the role in this game that gets one vote after they die.
    AV took a calculated risk, their death being a part of the plan. Iím fine going with that plan, even if itís not strictly necessary.

    I sent a "I'm the seer" PM/QT to every living player. Some players seemed to twig onto the fact that I was doing this. Others did not. There's two kinds of people who would immediately know I was lying, before anything was said publicly: the real seer, and the wolves.

    I look forward to revealing everything I've gathered posthumously, through a proxy. You know...a real contingency plan, not some simple individual vote.

    This is either an incredibly cool and noble Town move, or an expertly deceitful wolf move (with hopes we move the votes off you before the day ends).
    ...I'm not sure which it is, but all the double-play and multi-claiming makes me nervous, so I'll leave my vote on you. Here's hoping I'm... wrong? right? Not really sure which now.

    Hey; that's even in character for a bureaucracy. Someone did something that is hard to understand and thus confusing and scary, so let's kill the idea even if it's helpful

    Xihirli, I trust you. At least enough to lynch gac3 and see how it works out. AV is being weird, but it looks like she'll eat a night kill if she's lying, if she doesn't eat a day kill. I look forward to her information being shared.

    I might not be on for the next two days so: if a bandwagon suddenly arises on me, the people pushing it are wolves or people AV has deceived. 87% guarantee.

    My vote will be on Gac3 for now since AV will probably get NKíd and Gac3 seems to have lied about being seer.

    I don't quite know how to respond to this level of mischief... that being said, I have received no messages from the Friendly Annoyance. Against my better judgement, I'm switching my vote to Gac3, at least until I figure out exactly what AV is planning here.

    I'm still trying to grapple with what's going on here.

    AvatarVecna QT'd me claiming to be the Accountant and wants me to claim to her and appears to have sent this exact message to everyone else who's playing? She also claims to have a plan and that we should lynch her. What would be the purpose of that? How does lynching AvatarVecna help anything? Also: I notice AvatarVecna self-voted without crossing out their old vote, so really it's a fake self vote?

    Xihirli has one probably legit Seer claim, AV's Seer claim (and then apparently swapped to Contingency? Is that the big plan? Could she post a bunch of QT links in her death vote message or something?) and then gac3 who apparently claimed Seer then Contingency as well but in a less trustworthy way?

    JeenLeen didn't get a response from Oblivion and wants (wanted?) to know if someone else did, but that would be anti-Town so actually don't do it...? I'll admit I was about to tell Jeen whether I got a reply or not until I read the response saying not to.

    I'm going to work under the assumption that everything AvatarVecna says is cryptic and confusing and non-actionable, including the parts about how voting for her is part of the plan and the right thing to do. Instead, let's see what gac3 has to say.

    Okay, that makes sense. It's still possible AV is a lying wolf who concocted this whole scheme to mess with town's networking, I guess, but that seems unlikely. So gac3 for now, if they aren't a wolf we lynch AV tomorrow.

    Crossing out old votes isn't necessary to change your vote, but tbh I really should do that since even if it's not required, it makes the votecount at the end of the day easier on the narrator. Generally speaking, the default around here is "most recent vote is the real vote", regardless of any other nonsense going on, but crossing out old ones is advisable.

    Apologies for missing it, I've had a...busy 12 hours or so? XD

    I've certainly seen worse strategies than just...assuming I'm ****posting.

    Also, just as a general report on how things are going on my end: of the 13 living players, I've got ten claims written down...but there's three pairs of duplicates. One of them is Contingency Planner, obviously.

    I did not intend to say you couldn't spread info after death. You could, for instance, PM everybody a link to a dump of everything you know if you're going to be lynched. You could have somebody else do it. I was just answering Grek's question.

    But the question is, did BoP make that the rule specifically because they remember the game where AV self-voted, pretended to change their vote without crossing out their self-vote (or maybe the other way around, I don't remember), got a wolf killed due to the resulting confusion, and used that fact to convince the last standing member of the network (who was me) that they were town?
    Because that's totally what I was thinking of when they made that rule

    Also is this weird thing happening for anybody else where Caerulea's post in the thread doesn't have the "updated" line, but when you try to quote her post, it's there? Is that just me? Cuz it won't go away.
