Assuming we finally get a day where we are not* in lynch threat, I'd suggest we:
a) vote separately and not invoke our voting power
b) vote well in advance of EOD so we don't appear to be sniping again.
Today might be a good day for that "vote for different targets then switch to each others target" twinspeak gimmick, actually. Gets us more fun twin behavior and should satisfy a) and b) pretty easily.
I was thinking exactly this.
So yes, we just need to pick our targets.
Current list of Highly Suspicious/Dangerous People (in order of most to least):
-) Simon. He is a *master* at selling Big Lie bullshit, and his reasoning has been full of holes large enough to drive a bus through so far. Nobody ever expects a wolf to act deliberately crazy in public. I *am* afraid that going after him directly force another "twins vs. someone else" wagon, which would make for *another* useless day, so I think we should back off for another day or two before trying to rally against him.
Reluctantly, you are probably right.
-) Meta4 - Because goddammit, Meta4.
Yeah, but he's Rewarded. Which I personally think is an amplification of his normal power (doubling, more uses, something?). Could be lynch immunity, but I'd have expected a vote penalty on the loser, not a power null, if that were the case. Either way, probably to be avoided today.
-) Antipater + MaxFrost: Brand new player + returning-after-so-long-might-as-well-be-new player? Holy crap are these guys *begging* to be converted, particularly if one of the original Networkers is a long-time veteran like Ozy or ICB. General good sportsmanship will keep most people from judging them harshly, "mistakes" can easily be explained away, and they'll be low-profile enough naturally that they won't attract a lot of attention on their own. After tonight I'd fully expect one of the two to be converted (but I'd be surprised if both were converted over the course of the game). Almost impossible to lynch them before end-game unless they act really suspicious though, so we'll just have to keep an eye on them and try to figure out which one's converted.
I had this thought before, too. I think one of them will be converted tonight, though, not on Night 2. Though I guess the Network might've thought it was a 'sure bet' to get one of them early. I suspect they'll go after Max, because he's like new but not actually new, whereas they might not trust Antipater's ability at this stage.
-) ICB+Smirker - Both are pretty decent conversion targets, but they wouldn't be my first choices. Last-minute collaboration last night smells funny, but may not be Networker-related.
I don't see it yet, and ICB is aggressive enough that I don't want to poke him yet. Smirker is pretty open about liking our RP, so I don't want to poke a potentially sympathetic voter yet. Especially since the Network read is weak right now.
-) Ozy continues to read oddly to me, but I'm not sure it's Network-related or not.
I think he's one of the Marmalade Blondes, but otherwise, nada. His behavior actually looks pretty consistent with how he acted in Hot Fuzz. Before he died. Twice.
Actually, he was far more forthcoming about himself in that game, but that was because he had useful info.
-) Hellheart is being lower key than normal. Could just be natural fallout from playing a high-content RP character during the Quantum game.
He sounds RL busy and is also not belligerent. I mean, it would've been incredibly easy to jump on the call for our heads, but he made a point of saying how bad an idea that was. And he was one of the only ones to vocally do that. Could be a Network ploy to not have our guns aimed at him, but I don't see it yet.
-) RaveBomb seems quieter than "normal" maybe? I should go look over his posts so far.
My first game with RaveBomb. I have nada.
I actually have suspicious reads on dferrantino (incredibly quiet), Visigoth (also fairly quiet), and Zark (pure RP posts). They're either up to something or I figure one of them is Networked. It would make sense for one-but-not-both Network players to lie low.
Actively Neutral (rather than no read at all):
-) Admetus is behaving like Admetus at an almost sociopathic level.
-) San is outside normal space by playing a vocal character, but his actual votes are normal and fit his usual patterns (vote once, early, never retract, never snipe, which IIRC is largely due to timezone differences). The initial character-speak was eyebrow-raising but he's kept to it and his normal voting patterns so he's back to neutral in my eyes.
I concur. And bear in mind, the in-character bit could be for power activation. Maybe he only gets an immunity if he posts about drinking? I'm trying to figure out what character from the movie that seems like, except maybe Gary, and I can't.
Need to spend some time this afternoon/tonight chewing over more people to get reads.
