Re: F5 - The Refresh Strikes Back

On the one hand, I'm a little jealous - just because you're in the middle of it all doing what (I highly suspect) you love, and orchestrating the whole madness to bend to your whim (or maybe having your whim bent around the madness a touch).

Re: Day N+6: Because he's easy come, easy go

This gets tricky, because we've gotten what looks like probably the ~first two wolves, so looking back to Day 3 or so isn't going to do us much good. I kind of see what rekard is saying about Admetus, but the timing of it doesn't sync for me - in order for Admetus to be a wolf, he'd have to have bee...

No - just getting into the mindset of "people who would target FCM" a bit, and since she was targeted at Level 1, we have some of that info available.

I'll agree with Aldax ; as I mentioned earlier, he'd be one of my main conversion targets if I were converted. I'm also considering who would've converted FCM first - both JRS and Ryvvn are out of the game, so it's not pointing to them. In the first iteration of this game, who was the driver for mau...
