Hmm. Lift has been present much of toDay, while Joppo summarizes and disappears. would the remaining scum or two fade or try to misdirect?
If it's Lift, he would try to misdirect. He certainly would not fade.
From Lift's response, I'm not sure which it is. I'm leaning toward an innocent misunderstanding, but then his statement "Joe's vig shot must have taken priority over SirP's kill" is highly questionable... I don't know.
Why is that questionable? I think it's a reasonable assumption. In each game I've run I had to consider sequence of resolution of Night Actions beforehand. What happens if a killer is targeted himself?
Questions raised by the statement: "the missing kill in the Night before is easily explained by SPF's death. Probably he was the one who was supposed to perform the nk, but Joe was faster for some reason."
- what was the reason?
- is that a standard rule?
- has there ever been an example of this being the rule on gog before?
I was considering a somewhat-outlandish theory that neatly explains why Lifthrasil didn't think to question the lack of night 2 kill, and made assumptions about the night 3 kill.
A Traitor is a role that, if targeted by the mafias for night kill, joins their team instead of dying.
So if lift were targeted night 2, he would know why there was no kill, and he would know who the kill target was night 3.
Aaaaand I was about to go on to say how a traitor might be a good way to balance a 14 player game and that there are probably good characters for traitors in Harry Potter, but I just recalled the "no cults no winning condition changes" rule that someone mentioned a moment ago, and I guess a traitor would be considered a role that changes winning condition.
ah well, outlandish as it was, it was appealing.
I think Lift's behaviour this Day is certainly fitting with scum lift - the classic Lifthrasil "Just voting till I get a response [proceeds to take that player to lunch] Aggressive playstyle
, mocking those who scumread him
, "it worked for trent"
and in reponse to pooka's claim he went for a direct charge, until... ...two arguments... ...that I don't find particularly compelling... ...allowed him to charge off in a different direction.
^ I don't think it was the weight of the 'evil onion' (which I don't know what that's about?) or the 'generally overlooked but good at heart' was what changed lift's mind. I think it was just that he encountered resistance.
I'm not saying that I don't think Pooka is Neville Longbottom, miller - it's perfectly plausible. I just fail to see a strong link between the character and the role - which lifthrasil asked for. I don't think he got it.
I don't see what Carradice sees when he states Lifthrasil has a towny feel.
Joppo, I have no real read on, other than he comes across as fairly sensible. My preference is lifthrasil, but I prefer joppo and trent over pooka and caesar. It's a fair point that we shouldn't allow him to fade into the background. I'll vote joppo or trent if lifthrasil is an impossible lunch.
