So we need to find the alien host. Failing that, the symbiont.

I'd suggest lynching/shooting from the anonymous pool, that is, those who weren't super-clear on their identity. Remus West, Vorret, tru1cy and myself (and bb2112) were perhaps the most obvious factionals. It could all be a ruse, of course. I am not the symbiont, so if you're trying to kill it you would kill an ordinary convict. Perhaps you'd be fine with that.

You might argue that everyone on the Holman vote are convicts, but I think there are non-convicts on that vote (yes, maybe even an Engineer who understood the value of keeping hidden).

Proven convict, and healthy:
bb2112

Voted for Holman:
Lagom Lite
tru1cy
El Guapo
Moliere
Archinerd

Did not vote for Holman:
Grundbegriff
Isgrimnur
Vorret
Remus West

So let's try to accuse the silent  Grundbegriff

You're right. Re-reading the last couple of pages it seems better to go with the person most opposing the last vote.

 Vorret 
 


Besides it's another chance to take out the Canadian.

Why do we want to lynch Vorret again? Because he's the clearest member of "team crew"? But with bb2112 on ice, if we do that, won't the remaining guard shoot a convict (probably you) in the face, leaving us with a 4 on 4 deadlock? Unless we can get the symbiont to go along, but intuitively it seems like a deadlock suits him fine?

Not sure who we might get to a majority vote on today. Everyone (except the symbiont) wants to kill the remaining host, but all we have to go on for that is NOT Remus or bb2112. Intuitively I'm fine with poking Grund - would be good to get some analysis out of him today. But not sure if we get to a majority.

I think the remaining guard is going to shoot a convict in the face with or without vorret.

Someone needs to be shot in the face. Soon.

No.

I have already stated a preference for Lagom to be shot. He could be host. He could be Symbiont. He has claimed Criminal so worst case still contains a tiny benefit for the corporate team.

So the choice is between a probable Convict, a known Canadian, or Hi? The correct choice seems obvious, eh?

Tree hollows in old oaks or other trees and rock crevices are preferred by raccoons as sleeping, winter and litter dens. If such dens are unavailable or accessing them is inconvenient, raccoons use burrows dug by other mammals, dense undergrowth or tree crotches.

So if my math is right, we have three employees running around, one milkblood, leaving four convicts and a hacker roaming around, and a convicticle in bb2112.

From a voting standpoint, corp is down four to five. Once the convicts are on the short end, Milky doesn't want to leave the engineers free to let his prize out.

At the moment, bb2112 is effectively done. There's no need to unlock him to impact voting numbers for team corp. Milky has no reason to care if he's free or not from a specimen standpoint. And the convicts can't get him out.

This.

I'd happily vote but I'm awaiting the shot. If the Marine manages to find the Host or the Symbiont that changes things regarding how the voting should go.
