Next stop on the Day 1 Bandwagon Lynch Tour: Nitestorm!
DAY 1 LYNCH
Nitestorm - 5 - Visigoth, FurinMirado, Clearasday, RaveBomb, Ozymandias
So this one's a bit tougher to gauge, because if my "Sheriff Nitestorm Gambit" theory is correct, then there may not even be a Wolf on this bandwagon. If there is, his role would be that of a "counter-Wolf," who might try to be overly friendly to me or antagonistic to Nitestorm so that he could lead the charge to get Sheriff Nitestorm lynched after he took me out on Day 2.
(a) Visigoth put the first vote on Nitestorm when two other players (MEM, stigmata) already had 2 votes, so this was a fairly harmless vote for Nitestorm. Visigoth also voted me for Sheriff at the same time, which is a bit odd since he's usually much more wary of me early on.
Visigoth's next two lynch votes (Day 2 for Furin, Day 3 for Hellheart) conveniently stayed well away from the main bandwagons.
(b) Soon after Visigoth voted, FurinMirado put the 2nd vote on Nitestorm, tying him up with MEM, Ozy, and stigmata. That vote is the one that first put Nitestorm in real lynch danger, so it's hard for to reconcile this vote-- and his Day 0 "No Sheriff" and Day 1 Sheriff votes for anyone but Nitestorm-- with my hypothesized "Sheriff Nitestorm Gambit."
Then again, Furin was playing ridiculously well when I stopped playing a few months ago so maybe Wolf-Furin could have the foresight to pull this off ...
(c) CAD put the third vote on Nitestorm to break a seven-way two-vote tie (Admetus, CAD, MEM, Nite, Ozy, Simon, stigmata). Would a Wolf really risk putting such a significant lynch vote on a Human? Even if the Wolves weren't engaged in a "Sheriff Nitestorm" ploy, CAD had to know that I was very likely to switch onto Nitestorm later.
We all know CAD has big brass ones, especially as a Wolf, but are they that big?
But despite the Human-ness of this vote, I still suspect CAD for other reasons: (1) Only received two Day 1 Lynch votes; (2) Did not himself for Sheriff on Day 1 despite spending two days railing against Nitestorm; (3) Conspicuous Day 2 throwaway vote for Ryvvn when there was a 5-5-5 tie between dferr, San, and stigmata.
Also, this may sound odd, but if ICB's a Wolf, then CAD's Day 3 vote for him is actually more suspicious to me, because that's exactly the kind of sacrifice vote I would expect Wolf-CAD to make.
Anyway, right now if I had to rank the Wolfiness (from most to least) of the Nitestorm bandwagon, it would be:
(1) Visigoth / (2) Clearasday / (3) FurinMirado
Though if Augie isn't a Wolf (see earlier post), then CAD might be (1B) to Visigoth's (1A)
I highly doubt there's more than 1 Wolf in this bandwagon-- as I said, there may not be any.
