I suppose I should explain why I'm currently on Rictus:
- D1. I think he might be a wolf hiding on the soon-to-be mauled Admetus, safe place for a wolf to hide if the top two lynch candidates are humans
- D2. Perhaps looking to buy human cred should Stigmata have been lynched, likely to be at least one wolf on that wagon, currently leaning on it being him
- D3. Pushed up ICB, instead of voting Stigmata again, though potentially swayed by arguments

I agree with this.
For some reason, the more I see from ICB the more I suspect him.
I think stigmata is wolfy. Aldax is a convenient scapegoat. And I don't have a strong wolf feel on ICB. But it's enough where I'm fine with pushing him up to tie w stigmata. Iron clad burrito.
This does not vibe with me; vote for the guy you think is wolfy, especially after voting for him for the near kill the previous day!
Alright, here's my answer:
Day 1: First, there were three players tied, including a wolf. Not two as your post states.
As I explained in my post, I wanted ties. Day 1 had MEM/Stigmata/Nitestorm all tied at 4. I believed pushing Ozy to 4 (for the 4th tie) would destroy all of that... Soon to be Sheriff Nitestorm would absolutely break the tie by killing Ozy. So I threw off my vote onto the next highest player (Admetus) to see how it played out. All this was in my post.
Turns out I made the right
lucky play, and saved the seer. (**IF Ozy is actually
the seer**). Can you imagine if I had pushed the Seer up into the tie, and he was lynched? I'd be dead by now.
Day 2: Another tie, stigmata / dferrantino / san. I knew that if I again arrived to the thread towards the end and threw off my vote to save the ties, I would get accused of sheeping and throwing safe votes. So with one hour left I purposely pushed stigmata up out of the tie with plenty of time for other people to react.
And who saved wolf-Stigmata? Ozymandias.
Day 3: This time stigmata was looking like a bandwagon... Many people were calling for his head, he narrowly avoided day 2 lynch, and he was up by 2 votes over Aldax and ICB. I suspect the wolves knew he was a lost cause. My piling on to the stigmata bandwagon wouldn't do much, except give more room to hide to the wolves. But by pushing up ICB I could give an opportunity for more vote maneuvers. And when I did that, Omega joined me to tie.
You could look at it as two wolves (Rictus/Omega) coordinating to save stigmata. Or it could be one wolf (Omega) seeing a last minute opportunity to save a doomed wolf. Or it could be two humans who wanted to see what would happen with ICB. Either way, it was a better move than if I just bandwagon'd onto Stigmata with everyone else. Because ignoring the human/wolf identity of me and Omega, I think that your snipe for stigmata was a pretty humanish move, as was Ozymandias's snipe for stigmata.
The more sinister
alternative is that wolf-ryvvn (and/or wolf-Ozymandias) wanted to save wolf-ICB since wolf-stigmata was a lost cause, and sniping stigmata would give human cred to both the sniper and ICB. Not saying I believe it, but it's certainly possible.
And now you're voting for me for a wolf? Might want to rethink that. Look at Day 2 again.
I guess you think that on day 2 a wolf (Rictus) pushed another wolf (stigmata) up out of a three way tie in order to ... what? Force another wolf (ICB) to save stigmata? Get human cred to try a lone wolf win? To save another wolf (must be San) while NOT sacrificing a human (dferrantino)?
Stigmata being revealed as a wolf gives me strong
human cred, in my book. But I'll let others decide if they want to color me blue or not in their own charts.
I suggest you look elsewhere for a wolf.
Charming, to the last.
