I've been reading and re reading everything people have posted. I have zero idea of who it could be.

Could Lassr have been murdered simply because he's a good player? Because of an old warewolf game?

Could the wolf be eliminating the most experienced players and leaving new people alone?

Lassr is totally experienced, and apparently spoke of 'Seer' to at least 3 people. It's either one or the other - but I honestly think that wolves could make people vote for just about anyone because of it, at this point. Also I think his play is equally ambiguous. There is a chance he was indeed the Seer, and also a chance his Seer speak was fishing for a wolf to fear him erroneously.

He didn't press for anyone. It would have been very odd at that point since no one had real said or done anything.

+ 1


there are some instanceses (I briefly thought of suggesting the people that had Lassr communications to compare notes, but only amongst themselves.) where the PM thing has some interestring aspects, really - I just don't like the added dimension in a selfish sense. But then, I do sorta like that it's an option and to see how it's used. I'm torn, TBH.

You know, I remember seeing something about taking tough ethical quandries and posting them to a large group of people. We have nine people left righr? Lets all rank 1-9 who everyone suspects of being a wolf. We would all have to do this at once to avoid coloring the results. Would be interesting to see the results.

I thought about asking if posting PM's publically was transgressive, but didn't. It does seem like PM's would be a powerful tool for the seer. Leaving the seer without PMs would be significantly detrimental to the villagers.

Well to avoid influence they'd have to PM it to you and then you can release the results. You can send me your picks and I won't read your message until I first send mine.

Not sure what transgressive means here, but - generally speaking in the PM games I've played, it's frowned upon to post people's exact texts (frankly, I think that's to keep us from getting too obnoxious) - it's not exactly forbidden.

Well heres the trouble with that. I think it would be better if we all posted either at the exact same moment, ranked one to nine as in all players at once. Another issue is that all players would have to PM the same person, and what if that person is the wolf? That person could claim to speak for the whole group and then just railroad someone.

Potential issues aside it would be a powerful tool.

But then again, if one player got too MANY votes, the other players could question said results and lynch the poll person.

Interesting!

I think this is key, unless someone has some massive reason to trust someone.

Use PMs very sparingly to triangulate your information secretly (if you get me), and expose anyone that seems to build some private trust.

Sorry to any Seer trying to build trust this way (btw), but it is easily faked - right?

The issue with not posting their exact words is that a living player (or wolf) could stuff words in a dead players mouth.

There are nuanced reasons why posting other players Exact PM texts are not as fun as forcing players to 'paraphrase' for reasons of making the game fun - I don't really care either way here, but I'm just saying.....

I think Holman and El Guapo sorta get it, in that they will share exactly what they get, but not post it 'verbatim'.


And - seriously - you are not wrong for doing what you did. I'd PM you this - but I'd feel silly. I think you are just doing your best here - and it isn't bad, just nudging.

bleh.

Nah, you don't come across as a dick. I'm not 100% sure why it wouldn't be posted verbatim but thats okay. If there are more games after this I'm sure I'll learn... Thanks 😊

Let's be clear, I don't think this game has any specific rules, just speaking anecdotally here...
I think it was years ago when it last came up (because mass free-PM games are rare) - and at the exact time I didn't entire understand, but came to my own understanding that it was just about the nature of the game and a nuance of forcing people to own their own game and not directly quote the dead.

And actually, I think I'm maybe most remembering a game with a 'mentalist' that could actually contact the dead. They could tell everyone "Hey I'm the mentalist and the dead guy said this: " . But they had to paraphrase the message - less the whole game be about faking the other person's exact words.

I think it also kind of came from people copying the exact PM wording of their role which could be used to determine if they are or are not spoofing the role.

 withdraw Drazzil
Isgrimnur 

 


Feeling better (or is it worse?) about Isgrimnur than Drazzil at the moment. Drazzil's reading more like he's trying to figure things out and decipher the game / people, whereas Isgrimnur right now is reading to me more like a wolf in an overcoat trying to blend in to the crowd rather than play the game.

PM games are a trap.
yeah i know...who do you trust. Truth be told, I've only Pmd Drazzil & Scooper. Havent been big on the PM thing; I think it's because you can't really trust the person on the other end of the line here.

Also, present and observing. No real hard thoughts on anything, just fluidly observing. Observations:
1. I am giving drazzil a pass for now. He's a newbie and with that he pretty much gets a free pass from me. If he is a wolf, then cheers...bully for you. I can see both sides to his "slip".
2. Holman is trending good
3. Izzie - does feel like he's holding back; just chilling in the background.
4. Unagi still feels weird, not good or bad....just weird.
5. Lagon's bulls eye target seems weirdly out of place. Like...uhm, what target...OH you mean the one you JUST NOW painted on your back...oh ok. :D

Nothing else honestly jumps out at me.

My thoughts are leaning toward a Lagom/Issy pair. and the bullseye moment is mostly what's doing it for me with Lagom too. Issy is just damn straight creepy right now.

no real opinion of him actually. He's present, low key participation (which face it we are in the senior citizen participation phase pace of WW game nowadays- so not really holding it against him). not making waves that's for sure.

I am here and reading. I really wish I had more of a feeling on anyone. But I don't.

I think Scoop is always a good player, and he is active. So do we test him early or not?

El Guapo has been low key, as well as most others, including me, so that is bad, as it allows wolves to hide in that group.

I am guessing one wolf in the outspoken and one in the silent, that usually works out. But I don't have a feel either way.

So lets assume for a minute Lassr was a seer. Wouldn't he be foolish to mention seer so prominently? Texting multiple parties before he scanned anyone? Lassr was an experienced player. Kind of silly to make a mistake that way. So if he wasen't a seer but wanted to paint a target on his back, take one for the team as it were... But that gets him killed round one so... It was probabally someone he texted round one. Right?

Assuming that there was some kind of order in roles received.

1. Scoop
2. Lagom Lite
3. Drazzil
4. Isgrimnur
5. Holman
6. El Guapo
7. Newcastle (?)
8. RMC
9. Punisher
10. Lassr
11.Unagi

I don't *think* theres an order to the wolves getting their roles. Maybe first two or last two... Or maybe people checked their inbox in whatever order, which completely invalidates this, but its all typed out now... So I posts it.

I am really not sure, and am willing to follow the lead on whom people think.

I thought Drazzil was a good choice, I know for whatever reason we have backed off, but I am not sure we should have.
