Keep in mind that my scans do not include Putin nor do the wolves all know each other.

I agree.. reasonable but wrong. The working assumption (a wolf would be willing to finish him off if there were no wolves on the train) was, apparently, wrong.

Note... all of the analysis I've done and I've seen presumes that the claims are legit. They could just be lucky that the actual specials were already dead.

Going to finish my re-read sometime today. I have a great strategy, by the way, but I can't say what it is, because that would be giving it away to our enemies.

Yeah, I'm probably going to presume when I vote that the claims are legit. The troublesome part is that both claims have plausible reasons why the wolves would spoof - Scoop was at n-1, and could have spoofed figuring that either he outs Anderson or he gets out of the lynch. Remus came out at the start of today, and a planned spoof at the start of day 3 is a reasonable wolf strategy that Remus likes to use - exposes Jill if he's countered, and by coming out first it makes it more likely that the real Jill gets lynched if she counters.

Also even assuming they're legit, Remus's scans don't really remove his targets as possible lynch choices given the need to find Putin. Though it makes them less attractive.

My current issue is that if Scoop and Remus are both telling the truth, you and grund are the main badguys, and putin has to fall within the PLW, lassr, and dead people.

I can see Remus spoofing this as Putin, which really means any of the four of you are the 2 badguys. Pulling this on the day where it means the game is a valid move for a wolf.

So far no word from Alexander...

Remember mara jade! And the last game, or time before, this came back to bite us but just like then we can play the odds and go with what is in front of us or throw it out the window and lynch anyone still alive and see what happens.

I tend to want to lose because of bad luck or the perfect storm than do something stupid and lose...

of course I'd rather win and the odds say to believe Remus and Scoop.

Maybe Alexander is alive and figures that it would be foolish to step forward. Putin would certainly choose him tonight, one way or the other, if Putin is alive.
If found, Alexander will die from polonium-210 exposure. If Putin selects Alexander as Trump's replacement then team Good immediately wins.

So if we hit Conway today it will be 4-2. Putin target Alexander (if revealed) and Trump target random and hits. 2-2 we lose. But if Alexander not revealed then Putin is selecting in the dark and may miss.

If we hit Trump today, Putin replaces Trump, but not with Alexander (if revealed) and Conway cannot kill and back to 3-3 and we lose. But if Alexander not revealed good guys could win if Putin selects wrong.

If we hit Putin today, then Trump just kills tonight. 3-2 tomorrow.

Eh, advantages and disadvantages with Alexander reveal. We really need to hit Putin and Alexander can help but a miss and game over.

maybe I can just sell my vote to highest bidder.

I think I agree that Alexander sit tight and take our chances hitting Trump and hope Putin chooses wrong or hit Conway and Putin misses the scan.

Hitting Putin may be out of the equation unless he is in that top 3 with the other two. We know now we most likely (playing the odds) have 2 bad guys in a group of 3 to choose from.

You (correctly) listed only disadvantages to an Alex reveal. So why do you summarize that there are "advantages and disadvantages with Alexander reveal"?

the advantage is reducing the targets to hit Putin which should be our #1 priority, but a miss screws us. So we have to go for priority #2 and hope for some luck.

I see. Missed that, or rather didn't see the connection.

You mean that if Alexander steps forward, the number of people who could possibly be Putin is smaller and maybe we can deduce who it is.

I guess the problem there is that if both are alive and Alex steps forward, Putin (if feeling threatened by the math) could also claim to be Alex. Then we'd end up in one of those 50/50 things.

The more Lassr misspeaks the more I begin to think of him as Putin.

My prediction is:
Grund as Trump
El Guap as Conway
Lassr as Putin

Dead Guy as Alexander

Figure only 3 of the 5 list are potentially alex.

And who would he have scanned?
If it fell as PLW/Lassr/Myself and we had scanned one of the others, it'd be a lock.

Am I the only one concerned that Scoop lived through the night? Cooper can only protect each player once.
The protection can include himself, but never the same person twice.
That being the case, would you or wouldn't you protect yourself first night to avoid being killed before anything happens? Would you or wouldn't you, as Scoop, protect yourself? If you were the bad guys would you or wouldn't you think to try and remove him rather than risk targeting a protected target?

In case Scoop is real he should not reveal his protections (due to the limit of once per person) but I found myself thinking that if I were a bad guy I would have targeted Scoop last night. So, why did Archinerd get chosen instead if Scoop is being honest?

None of the above are Trump or Conway. That's all I have for you right now. Sadly, the Archinerd part is obvious now.
Suppose for the sake of argument that Remus is lying (and therefore a wolf). Makes sense that he would make one of the picks a dead person. Most likely the other two would be one villager one wolf (to give a team mate some credibility without risking connecting the whole wolf team), I would think?

By that claim, Trump and Conway are among the Top Three.
Putin (if Alive) is among the Top Five.
...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.
Day kills: Scraper, Isgrimnur, Newcastle (NO PUTINS HERE)
Night kills: RMC, bb2112, Archinerd* (COULD BE PUTIN ON THE RITZ)
Alive: Chaosraven, El Guapo, Grundbegriff, Lassr*, PLW*, __Remus, __sCoop


For what it's worth Putin *could* be dead, but he's probably still alive. We know that we've lynched three villagers. Trump and Conway know that they're not Putin (though Trump may be a little confused about this). So Trump's three kills are out of a pool of eight people who could be Poutine. Obviously they're going to shy away from people that they think might be Putin, so they might move the needle slightly in their favor, but in any event they *probably* haven't killed Putin, though the risk of hitting him is significant.

Also I think impacts who they would pick to take a more aggressive role. On the one hand you could have Trump be more aggressive / risk-taking figuring that if he gets offed then he can be replaced. But on the other hand without knowing whether you've killed Putin you risk game over if the villagers hit Trump and you've accidentally killed Putin. So on balance I would think that they would pick Conway as the lead / aggressive wolf.

Yeah I do think that he would probably stay quiet. The only thing is if he scanned both PLW and Lassr, *that* would be pretty useful information, as then we would have a complete scan of two players. Though with the caveat that either scanner could be lying.

Short of that, it's hard to see how Alexander coming forward is worth giving up him as a landmine, if nothing else. Like, suppose Putin is still alive - we're at 4 good 3 evil. If we lynch Trump, we're at 4 good, 2 evil. Putin selects Trump's replacement, which would result in a Team Evil win (3 good 3 evil), EXCEPT that if Alexander is still alive that's a 25% chance of a Team Good win. So that's pretty significant.

Well, they wouldn't *know* that, since Putin could be dead (in which case we're at 5-2, and so not a must hit today). They may be operating under that assumption, though.

In any event, you figure Scoop's protections (if he's telling the truth), are:

Night 1 - Scoop
Night 2 - El Guapo, because he is so handsome and funny that it would be too big a risk losing him from the game.
Night 3 - Scoop.

So, it makes all the sense in the world that the wolves would avoid targeting Scoop last night, since that's the most probable way to hit protection.

So, if Remus and Scoop are telling the truth, since I know I'm good, then the lineup is Grund + Chaosraven as Trump and Conway, and Putin among Lassr / PLW / 3 night kills. Question then is whether we lynch Grund / Chaosraven, and hope that either Putin is already dead or he hits Alexander, OR we fish for Putin. Neither choice is especially appetizing. I guess in this situation I would vote for Grund or Chaosraven, because absent particular intelligence Putin could be any of five people, which isn't great odds. Also if we hit Conway then we're still good even if Putin is still alive, as we would then be at 4 - 2, and Putin can't convert, so we'd be at 3-2 (assuming no protection).

So, we would only lose on a lynch of Trump / Conway IF: (1) we hit Trump rather than Conway; (2) Putin is still alive; AND (3) Putin does not pick Alexander.

All the back and forth between them on page 4 that resulted in bb putting Newcastle at N-1. bb seemed to quite convinced that Newcastle was bad and could likely lead a charge against him in the future. Thus, killing him removed one of the most prominent anti-Newcastle voices.
