ZFR: 10. Captain Sapphire (JoeSapphire) for Chancellor
Hello! Sorry for the still-fashionably-but-less-horribly-than-usual late arrivel.
I'm still catching up and I was about to complain that you got me bumped into 10th place (which appears to be a bad thing, I need to look over the rules again...) but you made me chancellor so I guess that makes up for it (assuming it's a good thing. I'll catch up, read the rules, reread, then post)
Joe, are you fascist? I want to get a good 'feel' of you.
nope I'm liberal.I've pmed you my address so come and get a good feel whenever you like.
Bwahahahaha but still my suspicion above is unwavered. Humour is used as deflection and random.org is not town play even though I know you do use it when playing Town. I kind of think you partly do it when playing Town in order that you can do it in a later game when playing Scum. At least 2 games you've been told it's reads as Scummy and you still do it. If you are Town again and still using random.org you need to stop.
I can see it's perfectly plausible your Liberal and using random.org but because I don't consider random.org to be Town play and because it could put an unfortunately no10 placed Hitler into power I'm very hesitant to give you a yes vote but I haven't voted no yet either.
^ this is pretty good. I'm pretty sure ZFR's being genuine about using random.org, but it's true that whether he's fascist or liberal (or town or mafia) he'd probably use it and be faithful to it anyway, and this is a habit we should get him out of. well anyway whatever.
Supplementscene thinks that I might be hitler and Zenefredi has used random.org as a blind get me power in order to prove myself a liberal. So if I choose a liberal policy it proves nothing, and if I choose a fascist policy it proves nothing... which is good to know. I guess?
I have a question for Joe. What is your stance on kicking puppies and kittens? (this may affect my vote for/against you. RT-CB will remember this
It depends how close they are to a long drop.
I know you're all going to say "that's the answer everybody wants to hear, so it's exactly the answer a fascist would give," but I'm not going to be dishonest in order to try and appear honest. (ow my brain)
If it's kicking them hard then I'm for it. If it's kicking them lightly, then I'm also for it, but slightly less.
oi! the question was for me alright? So kindly butt out mr president your honour.
And I'll stop using random.org for RVS, the minute someone explains why a random.org vote is worse and more anti-town than "Hey, you started your post with a T and your avatar is white so I vote for you. Haw haw haw" vote.
because you're not making the choice, so you may as well not write anything. The person who's made up a stupid reason to vote for white-avatared Trisha has still had to make the decision to vote for trisha in the first place, and while it's basically impossible to know why they made that decision and whether it's double-bluff or triple-bluff or triple-double-bluff, at least it's still fun to speculate about, whereas randomising denies me that fun.
This one I disagree strongly with. The point of this first round is to check people. If you draw 2L and 1F, you should pass 1L and 1F on to Joe (under the assumption that the government gets accepted). Otherwise him passing 1L doesn't mean anything. In this game we analyze choices. If he doesn't have a choice, we don't learn anything about him.
aha! So that's what the chancellor does. Cool.
(I will actually read the rules don't worry)
--- okay I'm caught up. reading the rules.
And I immediately come to - "The Presidential
Candidate is free to discuss Chancellor options
with the table to build consensus and make it
more likely the Government gets elected."
did you consider that my honourable president? ;p
aha so now we're all secretly voting. Has anybody done so yet? And what did you vote secretly?
Oh, or are we all voting publicly? Do we send our votes to The Puzzlemaster who then makes them public?
cool. I'm caught up. I like this game. So uh... I just have to earn your trust now?
