Notes:

- PMs are only allowed for you if so instructed in your role PM. (And always only at night)
- There is no time limit, but one may be imposed by me if there is no progress in a long day. (Always with at least 24 notice)
- Possible Roles: Cop, Traitor, Doc, Roleblocker, Framer, vigilante and possibly others.

Longshoreman (i.e. vanilla townies) received the following role PM:
Quote:

Longshoreman

You are , a longshoreman. You are a loyal member of the union, but are fed up with the corruption that is tearing it apart. You have decided to take the law into your own hands and do something about it by figuring out who the mafia are and finally ridding the union of their destructive influence.

Your only weapons are your wits and your vote. Use them wisely.



"A canary."
"Maybe he could sing but he couldn't fly!"

A young dockworker Joey Doyle, one of the informant union workers who was planning to cooperate with crime investigators by testifying against gangsters who tyrannically control the docks was hurled from an apartment rooftop.

In the street, a shocked crowd gathers around Joey's body. One of the neighbors, Mrs. Collins knows this was no accident: "Same thing happened to my Andy five years ago...[about Joey] He was the only longshoreman that had the guts to talk to them crime investigators ... Everybody knows that." Pop Doyle laments that his son didn't follow his advice: "Kept telling him. Don't say nothin'. Keep quiet. You'll live longer." Angered by the senseless murder of the brother she was close to, Edie screams: "I want to know who killed my brother!"

Father Barry offers the basement of his church for you to talk freely, away from the prying ears of the mafia. But you know that the mob are really among you and in the church basement you are ready to take action.



Day 1 begins now. (Feel free to post after you receive your role)

8 votes needed to lynch.

Remember: The waterfront is a rough place, you really can't trust anyone.

Why JamesBannon?

He lives in Paisley Scotland where my ex wife came from.




Come to think of it, you do have a legitimate argument.

I agree. Vote. JamesBannon.

Checking in.

Vote: Crumb

Er, sorry, I meant

Vote: Nightson

Always helps to have a couple of different bandwagons on day 1, rather than dogpiling one person, and Nightson posted after James.

Why is everyone suddenly voting for nightson with little or no proof? Oh... right, day one. Alright.

Well, since we need an obscene number of votes for a lynch, I'll Vote Nightson because we would need 3 more people to suddenly and spontaneously decide to vote for him for my vote to matter anyway.

Adam, James, Dolores and Skydin are all scum. All of them. Oddly enough not because the voted for me, but because they received role pms that identified them as belonging to the scum group.

Ok, well here we go.

I'm going to vote ES since she thinks random lynching on day 1 is just gawd-awful.

Hmm, explaining why joining a bandwagon in the middle isn't really bandwagonning. Scumdar says ding.

Vote Skydin

Vote Skydin
Not to mention poor math :giggle:, Skydin's vote was #4 on Nightson, meaning 4 more votes would be needed, not 3. Scum always have poor math skills, that's what leads them to a life of crime :yup:
