    :lol: It if wasn't a crock, your claimed ability would have been one of the more powerful on the innocent side.

    Im sry I dont got time to read the last 8 pages. Only looked trough it, mostly. I think Autolycus was Ugluk, Beefy (that was the one with the horse? right?) is Wormtongue, and then only Saruman is missing.

    Earthling fought a lot to protect Autolycus, and thats reasonable, since his goal is (as his saying) to protect him.
    Earthling therefor never voted for Autolycus who most others voted for.
    I understood it so that Earthling still think Autolycus was a good guy, even though the night write-up told us Saruman was crying over his loss.

    Out of this I get that Earthling is either mafia companion of Autolycus, using his coverroles goal as a reason to fight for whom the mob goes for.
    Or he just might be blind and sad that Theoden, his actual goal, as really innocent, is dead.

    Im not sure about whos mafia, but I choose to trust that Earthling isnt really blind and Winston knows what his doing. Vote Earthling.

    I think Earthling has been saying lots of things that make him suspicious so he has to go.

    That's ridiculous. You seem to have a love for abstaining, which is outrageous this late in the game. No offense.

    No. Why did you abstain in the first place? You can abstain in the first rounds when you don't know anyone's role, but not now that we're down to a quarter of our original number you don't get that luxury anymore.

    Because I figured earthling would be lynched anyway, so I just needed to abstain. No biggie. Don't blow something insignificant out of proportion. Let's focus on the task at hand.

    What the fu- It's 'thrifty', not shifty. Grrrrr!!!!!
    Sorry, but it's not insignificant that one of the remaining 25% of the players suddenly abstains when a mafia is cornered.

    abstain vote at later round- mafia tactic used to act neutral on lynch votes.
    This can be helpful, when one of the nominee is mafia as it could cut the connection between the two.

    However, opposite effect is to be expected when there is only one abstain votes.
    Possible anti psychology WIFOM. But on general, WIFOM should be treated with an iron fist.

    ____________________

    DAY SIXTEEN

    Those still left gathered around Balin's Tomb, as their decisions became increasingly important.

    "Who should we lynch today?" Celeborn queried.

    "Why not go after that pesky Haldir?" Haleth stated.

    "Yeah," Samwise agreed. "He's been causing us all sorts of trouble."

    "But you can't lynch me!" Earthling cried. "You're all NPCs, and every one of you is a member of Isengard! How on earth can NPCs lynch me? I'm not getting pushed around by an NPC!"

    And he was right. At least about the last part. For it wasn't an NPC who pushed him down a nearby shaft to his death, but the 10 other members of the town. Earthling was dead.


    IT IS NOW NIGHT SIXTEEN. NIGHT SIXTEEN WILL BE 24 HOURS LONG.

    All I gathered out of that was that Earthling got lynched, and he was Haldir. Anyone else see anything?

    Yes, WIFOM should be treated with an iron fist, so your head is next on the block, Beefy187.

    Wow, triple crosspoast. Anyway, Camikaze did a nice parody of Earthling's wild accusations against everybody else.
    All that we get is that Celeborn and Samwise are still alive.

    I think I know who Celeborn is, but not sure about Sam.
