Bookwyrm627: Vote Blotunga
Do you think blotunga to be more likely to be scum than scene, or do you think blotunga to be a more likely or more useful lynch than scene?
As for Scene, I am still not certain now that he is scum. His reactions are not what I would expect from a scum Scene, and the same goes for blotunga.
I fear I have to concur with this. I want
scene to be scum, as it would make everything very neat, and would make me feel good about seeing through him right away. But I've only been getting more uncertain as the day has progressed. He doesn't read, he misrepresents, he misunderstands - in short, he's super frustrating. But he gives only a few of the reactions I'd expect from scum-scene despite repeated pushing.
I'd have no regrets if we end up lynching him and it turns out to be a mislynch, as it'd remove a major source of distractions and give us lots of things to work with.
I also don't know what the alternative is. blotunga seems obvious, and has the support. How do you read the fact that no one joined you until bookwyrm just now?
Oh, actually, could you expand a bit on how blotunga's reactions aren't what you'd expect from scum-blotunga?
Microfish is for me the most interesting alternative, as I don't think anyone
has him as anything other than "neutral" at best. I have to guard against an omgus reaction here, though, and if he flips town, that gives us nothing useful.
The way you, trent, have moved your vote off scene (and just now off blotunga) reminds me strongly of the way you did so in #55 (where you were both mafia) - in both cases you then found reasons not to get back on his wagon. I fear your play is more involved when mafia, though, and of course if scene is town, then your unvote isn't significant at all, but just a case of keeping two competing wagons in sync. (I guess I could
kinda see a trent-blotunga scum team if I squint? Well played if so, though, as the way you kept his wagon viable would be pretty gutsy.)
