    Renata, why are you voting G1K? (might have missed a post, rereading EOD1 rn)

    Say, what? What gives you the idea he had a "VERY strong" power?

    I haven't said why other than I think I mentioned a post that Rhand flagged toward end of day one (then voted for Loderingo instead).

    He said so. He was a role thief, essentially.

    I agree with the conclusion that Ace made that wolves had a very crucial role that they didn't want stolen (and presumably thought was fairly likely to get stolen). Since Rhand was asked to go after Takhsis does this play into that discussion at all?

    Oh right, yes. Now I remember. Then again, with Argon in the game, I tend to be extremely sceptical of wild power claims.

    If we assume Rhand was telling the truth then Vagabonds don't have mutually exclusive wincons with us.

    Agree that it could be any of those.

    One thing I noticed it doesn't say the Vagabonds have been eliminated so there could be someone else out there with a similar role.

    Please can you provide some info on Ace. I am suspicious about Ace at the moment and would be interested in anything that proves/disproves my suspicions

    I asked this question in my last game with LA and he turned round and dayvigged the person he claimed to have peeked ("here us their role").

    Unfortunately, they were bulletproof but still the sentiment stands.

    If Rhand was telling the truth about being a third-party, that would suggest that the Vagabonds aren't a unified faction.

    Yeah, well Argon's role claims can't be trusted any further than you can throw them. In that respect, he's just as actively unhelpful towards town as Takhisis can be.

    Rhand is described as a Vagabond, not a Vagabond-aligned power role. For this reason, I agree that each Vagabond is self aligned (as Rhand wouldn't lie about an easy to confirm PR).

    So there is another Vagabond who may or may not have the same role. Are you suggesting Rhand was lying about his ability?

    I am almost 100% sure Rhand was telling the truth about his ability because he would have been exposed very quickly if he lied and would have been lynched. Personally, I believe there is another Vagabond with a different role but similar in design to this one in terms of power, wincon, etc.

    up yours.
    As Ace Marvel says, they might have been looking to kill any non-mafia PR. Better than a random kill, or maybe they, too, have to outnumber all the other factions put together, as happened to me recently in an MU game.

    We town have to eliminate all other factions, it says in the OP, so it's better than a dead townie. :)



    Now, I'm amazed at how picking one post by el-ahrairah and asking, genuinely, whether it sounded genuine or not started a ball rolling to the effect that el-ahrairah was in fact faking it, etc. etc which was quite eisegetic.

    Ooh, this is juicy. Rhand was sheepin' me HARD yesterday. I wonder if scum were legitimately concerned that he might try to steal the abilities of our shared scum-reads.
