checking in....happy to not have 12 pages to read!

my first thought is to treat the out of the gate nomination by barkeep with a serious amount of suspicion, but he has to know that after the shenanigans of dubb and hoops last game that the first king is not going to get by without alot of votes...although i dont rule out him being a wolf, i would be relatively certain Schmidty won't be...BK wouldnt make the one for one this early in the game.

i will admit to having the same schedule trepidations as others have expressed, but i am also willing to give the man a shot since he is saying he will be around alot more.

vote schmidty as king

My point is wasting a scan and block on the king and then electing them the next day may not be the best idea. Your plan came off as being cut and dry, but I don't think we can simply say scan/block and then we have a cleared king and we look good.

Based on the way things are going down, I think it's unlikely Schmidty is a wolf. In general I think being the first king would be bad for the wolves.

Damn, is everybody having a case of the Monday's? You all sound like petulant children today =)

Vote JAIL BK

Two reasons for this: First he jumped out with a real early nomination of someone who has (in the past) had issues with being around, which until he stated that he has most of the week off made very little sense. Secondly, BK is a damn good player, if we jail him he's safely out of teh way and we can scan him until we know what he really is.

As for a King vote today, I really think we ought to have a bit of a runoff instead of everyone voting schmidty just cuz'. so to promote this I will:

VOTE DANNY KING

This is completely random on my part, I looked at who was in thread and picked the third guy that showed up.

I'm not sure we necessarily need to. We need to see how the mechanic plays out, but having a system where we rotate kings every X amount of days by lynching them might not be a bad idea. Especially since we certainly don't want the seer to have to reveal just to clear a king or not.

Since it looks like it will be between Schmidty and I, I am going to keep my king vote off both of us for now. If late I am in the lead, I will elect myself. If Schmidty is in the lead, I will elect him. It gives us a good record to keep it close for now, but in the end we have to make sure there is no tie.

Question for dubb - Can the king be scanned by the Seer?

We've still got lots of votes to go, no need to consider it a done deal yet.

Any thoughts on the other vote? This seems a case where it makes more sense to jail a quiet/not checked in person by the end of the day. They get to submit articles and have a chance of getting back in the game.

On the other hand I could see jailing BK on the chance that he put up Schmidty for some nefarious reason. That seems unlikely though, really.

vote Schmidty king

If he's not night killed within a couple of days we'd be smart to lynch him ourselves, and then if he turns up wolf we have another likely candidate for lynching in Barkeep.

In a way, it would suck to be King because I know it would only be because everyone knows I'm expendable, but oh well. I'll just deal with it.

We're tied on the king vote now, right? And isn't a tie some sort of 'dire consequence' for the village? I'd rather the king be someone I don't like instead of a tie.

that being said I also think we should kill the original King early. So I say the seer should scan sndvls N1 and if we haven't heard anything bad about him by D2-3 we elect him King.

thanks....I guess

I'd be up for this if it helped as I'm just a villager, but it sure would suck as a come back game.

I guess that the King vote should be based on activity, to my mind. We're probably not going to elect someone like Hoops, since though he'd be good at it he'd be just as good at it as a wolf. So, someone who tends to be around and vocal, but isn't considered dreadfully dangerous. If we don't want to go with the random idea.

Right now we have BK in a runaway, I realize this is jail instead of a lynch, but I think we need to treat it as if it was a lynch. Let's make sure we make this a meaningful vote.

There is no downside to a lopsided jail vote. We jail him, we scan him, we decide what to do with him after that.

A lynch is a one way ticket, be it a good one or bad one.

And, why scan him if he's in jail -- why not just wait for the 20% to kick in, and use the scan on someone else? It's not particularly effective, but there's no risk of wasting a scan.

If we do that, we basically waste an entire day and only gain anything useful on one player. I would advise not scanning whatever player is jailed today. I also think we need meaningful voting records (not saying it has to be a lynch) as a runaway tells us nothing.

Because by scanning him we canthen USE him, either as the next king or an immediate lynch vote, or at worst a basis for a CoT.

The 20% doesn't stack, it never gets better and 1-5 chances aren't good odds, why wait for it when we can do something else?

And that can all be done with a player who is not in jail. Plus there is additional chance of someone in jail ending up killed or scanned by the king. Plus, it's not like the seer is going to come out on day two and let us know about the jailed player.

I don't think the seer comes out to "clear" the person in jail, even if they do decide to scan him. So the person in jail is going to be there for at least a couple of days, depending on the whims of the king.

As far as the "lynch the King" every couple of days, I'm fine with that if elected. I'm not sure how much of an issue that is (my support, or lack thereof), but I've got a couple of votes for the position so I figured I might as well chime in on this. I'm also pretty sure of how I would handle my King repsonsibilities if put in office, but I'm not sure I want to share them just yet as it would be yielding info to the wolves that they could potentially use as part of their decision process.

Finally, I'm probably not going to be very high participation tomorrow. If that is a good enough reason to jail me over someone else, so be it. I would just hope that if I am sent to jail for that day that I get a "get out of jail free" pass at some point in the near future as I think I'll be around and active from Wed - Fri at the very least.

I will say this, if I am king, I may not wait for a scan to remove a jailed player if I feel that player is likely to be a wolf. Since right now the collection of prisoners would be very small, I doubt that would happen, but at some point for me or other kings, I think this would be true.

Here's what I don't get. Let's say we jail a very good player like BK to see if he's clean, and he does end up being fine and ready to really help us out. Why would the wolves even let him live? Wouldn't it be like wasting a vote and another day?

I agree with this. I am fine with jailing over lynching, but we need to treat the jailing as if it was a lynch vote and would prefer scans to be on players not in jail.
