It is Day 1, we don't know anything so flailing is the norm. Well most of us don't know anything. :noid:

I think we're using different definitions of flailing.

I am referring to panicking, overreacting, and generally spazzing out when being voted for.

I think, based on context (and do correct me if I am wrong), that you are referring to a general casting about of votes, since we have no real info. Yes?

I thought Deadlokd's reaction to the votes against him sounded a bit panicky and desperate, yes.

He hasn't logged in since January 29th, but I checked his profile and he does have email alerts set for new PMs so assuming he's alive and checking his emails, he should know Nightson sent him a role PM. :shrug:

Sure, but nothing that would be incongruous with vanilla town or even a pro-town special finding himself halfway to the hanging tree on day one, imo.

Hmm. I thought he was just messing around. He responded to your OMGUS with OMG. :shrug: And for another thing you voted for him, but then he ended up voting for someone else. So yeah he did wave the finger of suspicion around a bit, he doesn't seem desperate to me.

Fair points, all, but I get more than a general "I don't want to get lynched on day one regardless of my role" vibe to it.

Ima put the whole post, for clarity and thoroughness, but unbold the votes for less visual confusion, ykwim?

unvote; vote Kael.
Those reasons are weak. An OMGUS vote is a scum tell? Since when? Adam explained his reason for jumping on the "bandwagon" (to see Dl's reaction, which has been incredibly enlightening, imo). Kael's was only the 2nd vote. Don't scum usually wait until several townies are on board and then come down with the hammer? With only two votes left to lynch, why haven't they? Why the vote for Kael? Why no mention of Gonzo? It's all incredibly fishy, imo.

i will kick another scum tell.

The voice of reason. at 1 vote to lynch we need to wait for deadlock to role claim before anyone drops the hammer.

Yeah, that seems a bit premature. I mean, Kael hadn't any votes at the time, so I don't know that he was necessarily starting a bandwagon.

Scum usually try to hide in the middle of a bandwagon, don't they? If I were going to pick scum based on bandwagon piling so far, I'd finger bey, Gonzo, and myself.

At any rate, I'm parking my vote where it is until Deadlokd speaks up.

Okay, my OMG was all lighthearted as was my "revenge vote scum tell". I mean, does that even exist? It's day one, no one is doing anything, I'm just fucking around waiting for someone to do something suspicious. Looks like my fucking around has FoSed me instead.

I picked Kael because he voted for me because I didn't have a good reason to vote for ES. This early in the game no one has a reason to vote for anyone. IMO jumping that soon was suspicious. As was Adam jumping immediately after, but Adam is an experienced player, I don't think Kael is. Anyway, I'm town (yup, I'd say the same if I was scum) and me being alive is way better than me being dead. Especially if I get lynched. That'd suck.

Okay thanks for that explanation. I didn't realize you were joking around as much as you were.

Still not making a lot of sense to me. You voted for Kael for suspiciously "jumping so soon" (scare quotes because he was still only the second vote on you), but then acknowledge that he may be inexperienced. Is that not contradictory?

Yup, the fact that he could be inexperienced was an afterthought. But I'm still leaving it because he hasn't said much itt. Not that anyone really has mind you.
