wait, never mind, it's random

If Trump is exposed and removed from office then Putin can replace him with another random player

Is the replacement Trump truely random? That is are all players - even those already on team evil - possible new Trumps?

No. It's meant to be a choice by Putin who he wants to replace Trump. Sorry, the reference to "random" is a little misleading. It's random because Putin doesn't know any of the other player roles.

Ah.

So he could hit Conway this way.

Is there any protection from it?

My reasoning:

1. At one point Newcastle was at N-1 with both of the kills (bb, Isi) on the list, along with me. So that's 3 people I'm sure were villagers. I conclude that either Newcastle is a wolf or one of the other two voters (Remus and scoop) was, because if he were a villager and so were the other two, then a wolf would be willing to push it over the edge. Thus there is a wolf among: Newcastle, Remus, scoop

2. Looking at the voters for the actual bad lynch, we find only one of those three, scoop, so that's whom I'm accusing.

The key question, among several, is whether, in a game without postmortem forensics, a RusskieRemus or a RusskieScoop would have the яйца to claim a role that might be contested.

Alexander is only made public if Putin scans him or replaces Trump with him. Anderson and Jill are never made public.

Grund, the quote you posted from me asking what I meant was from day 1 when Newcastle was on the edge and made no claim. I was commenting regarding folks backing away from lynching him and focusing on a second target that day as I considered him a solid day 1 lynch at that point and was wondering about those who wanted to look elsewhere given the regularity with which we out our Seers in these games. It had little to do with concern over actually being outed (as I wasn't being targeted) but rather wondering about the motivation of those who pursued other avenues rather than lynching Newcastle.

Thanks. I get that you were registering surprise at how readily the Newcastle haywain collapsed. I'm just confused about your language: "...failed to put the Seer on our first target....". What does that mean?

It was snark directed at those leaving the Newcastle vote to run a new target up the flag pole - I was suggesting that those players were looking to out a special rather than actually accomplish a lynch.

I'm pretty sure that Conway has to be killed, and Moliere just accidentally omitted Conway from the list of people who have to die. Pretty sure Grund knows that too, hence the smiley face at the end of his comment.

I said that because it is technically Trump picking his Cabinet members. If he's killed and Putin is killed with no replacement available then the game is over. It's an example of a quick victory. Another is if Putin picks Alexander as Trump's replacement.

By that claim, Trump and Conway are among the Top Three.
Putin (if Alive) is among the Top Five.
4 good, 3 evil. As Remus says, if we lynch Trump or Conway, we get 4 good 2 evil, then Putin converts and we get 3 good 3 evil and game over (unless, I suppose, Litivenko is still alive and hits on Putin that night).

So it probably doesn't make sense to limit the discussion to the "Top 3", since Lassr or PLW could also be Putin, who we need to hit. I wonder if it could make sense for Litivenko (if still alive) to come forward. Probably not, right? I guess the only scenario is if Litivenko scanned three of the top 5, then we could reduce hitting Putin to a 50% chance.

That's assuming that everyone is tellinge the truth about their rolls.
Actually looking at this again we could theoretically be at 5 good, 2 evil, because it's possible that Trump has already night-killed Putin inadvertently. Odds are against that, but it's a non-trivial chance.

Having weighed this, I'm inclined to think it more likely that they're playing straight. By now, I would hope anyone in a position to contest one (or both) of them would have stepped forward to do so.

...that this (above) is most likely correct. El Guapo notes that Putin may well be dead; looks like Chaosraven was sensitive to that possibility, too. And both chose to mention it, though with expert subtlety.

I understand that others will have to assess me (as usual); but (given the odds that Scoop and Remus are playing it straight) for me, it's a matter of figuring out which of these two is Trump and which Conway. Chaosraven has been talking a blue streak, and El Guapo has been eerily silent. I don't see "being in character" as relevant here since TrumpRL and ConwayRL are both bloviators. But if Trump is the selector and Conway is just fluff, which one would they put forward and which would hang back? And would they take our calculation of that sort of thing into account and whip out the iocane?

This doesn't strike me as rationally decidable. My intuition tilts toward El Guapo as hidden Trump and Chaosraven as the mouthpiece, which is pretty much where I started the day.

Code: Select all

Day kills: Scraper, Isgrimnur, Newcastle
Night kills: RMC, bb2112, Archinerd*
Alive: Chaosraven, El Guapo, Grundbegriff, Lassr*, PLW*, __Remus, __sCoop

so 3v3 still ends it for the good guys but conway cannot choose cabinet members so she does not have to die as long as we do not have a scenario where it ends 1v1 with conway alive. But if the game is over once we hit Trump and Putin we will not end up with a 1v1 situation with Conway.

So we still need to hit today.

To me, El Guapo is the least suspicious of the three that are above the line. He was the first vote on both lynches, but didn't even vote on either of the N-1 near lynches, even though we know (now) that they would have been good lynches for team evil.

For similar reasons, chaosraven is less suspicious to me, he was on both lynches but on neither of the N-1 lynches.

Grund, by contrast, just seems to be hanging back and letting the villagers do all the dirty work. After all, why intervene when we have such bad aim. So,

I think this post makes Remus look good - trying to keep us from thrashing around too much on day 1 and outing a special. I guess it could also be trying to out Newcastle if he thought Newcastle was special but...I lean towards the former reading.

I voted Chaosraven. RMC loves to vote for Remus and thought maybe Chaos set up Remus with an RMC kill. Weak but not much to go on.
Some mild analysis from Lassr.

PLW wrote:I accuse  scoop20906 
 
My reasoning:

1. At one point Newcastle was at N-1 with both of the kills (bb, Isi) on the list, along with me. So that's 3 people I'm sure were villagers. I conclude that either Newcastle is a wolf or one of the other two voters (Remus and scoop) was, because if he were a villager and so were the other two, then a wolf would be willing to push it over the edge. Thus there is a wolf among: Newcastle, Remus, scoop

2. Looking at the voters for the actual bad lynch, we find only one of those three, scoop, so that's whom I'm accusing.
Then there's this. Reasonable analysis as I and others have said. Although at this point Newcastle is dead and the other two listed are claimed specials. So, either PLW was mistaken or one of [PLW, Remus, Scoop] is a wolf.

Though thinking about this some more, it's not obvious that a wolf would want to push Newcastle over the top at this point - Scooping someone before they state their role would be likely to draw unwanted attention to the wolf at issue.
