Certainly nothing to feel sorry for.

Otherwise - watching the Living Thread for the last, what, over an hour, I haven't had so much fun in ages. It looks like out of a stageplay of something by Franz Kafka.
This is going to be a little Other-Fandom as a comment, but it's like watching the Jedi bumble their way through the Clone Wars knowing what Palpatine's up to--they keep coming SO close!

Also, empowering Rikae means Lommy is a wolf. If Rikae votes for Mac or Kath, I'm comfortable with Mediumizing them or Pitch (points to Mac). Definitely not going to empower Lommy (points to Kath).

The rules say mods have to have seven games under their belt and I don't think I do. However, modding would be significantly easier than playing.

But if I do mod I think I'd make a rule that the living can't communicate with the dead.

Shasta voted Mac. Every single innocent has to follow now, or the wolves can swing it.

On the plus side, if things come down to a tie, we can empower Shasta and the Mac-waggon win the tiebreaker.

So even if all the Wolves vote together, we only need one vote for Mac (and for the cobbler/other innocent to split their votes elsewhere).

I think we need to tell the living that Lommy is a wolf. They don't seem to be suspecting her, like, at all. So if Rikae votes for Mac, I think we need to Mediumize them.

YES!

Also, we know from Greenie that neither Shasta, Nilp, or Rikae is the Ranger. If the innocents had only spotted her post, a Ranger reveal would net us 4 known innocents.

WHAT ON EARTH ARE THEY DOING???????????????

Like - they were handed a dead wolf and a dead Seer in one go, and instead of trying to figure out who the remaining wolves (or at least previously dreamed innocents) are, they spend the entire Day debating increasingly convoluted ways to communicate with us? Seriously the wolves deserve to win this one.

This makes sense. Which list are we using again? Rikae's? I lost track Basically I'm happy mediumising anyone who votes for Mac, extra points if it makes them look at Lommy too.

Well we know it isn't Shasta (sadly, since a Ranger reveal might have made the rest of them listen to him ).

“The right understanding of any matter and a misunderstanding of the same matter do not wholly exclude each other.”
― Franz Kafka, The Trial

Or how about this, borderline rude, but:

“They're talking about things of which they don't have the slightest understanding, anyway. It's only because of their stupidity that they're able to be so sure of themselves.”
― Franz Kafka, The Trial

Who would have known Kafka had such a profound knowledge of Werewolf? One could make an entire game just on these quotes! (Perhaps that's what you should do with the Ghost, Form! A pre-selected bunch of lines from some classics, and see what they can do.)

Yeah, the Ghost Game sounds like a ton of fun.

And I want to wait to see if Rikae votes for Mac. If they do, Mediumizing them tells the living that Lommy is a wolf. If they don't, Shasta deserves it for single handedly dragging the vote Mac's way.

I realised immediately that majority are about someone walking, riding, going or arriving somewhere. But not necessarily bad. There are other interesting ones, too. And many can be quite lengthy, which is fun.

For the current situation, I would propose:

"Pippin lay in a dark and troubled dream: it seemed that he could hear his own small voice echoing in black tunnels, calling Frodo, Frodo!"

This is the summer for me to fall back into WW...

We'll probably need several drafts of rule rewrites.

(For one thing, I think paragraphs better than sentences, because then you're a lot more vague--"what part of this paragraph doe the ghost mean!!" is better than being able to narrow things down more.)

It would be quite strange after all these years to make the game MORE Tolkien-related.

Let's see how this develops, but Shasta could be nice empowerment (even it increased the chances he's killed the next), regardless of any version of the lists.

BUt let's still wait and see how this plays out.

There sure looks to be the two sides now - just some mist in between the borders of both camps.

Tolkien quotes are the obvious and best choice, but the one thing I LONG to say to the living right now is "Lord, what fools these mortals be."

A nice 'we're doomed' one is Silm chapter 9:

And Silm 17 is good if you need to send a message about Nilp:

And I feel like this one is nicely nuanced, though not terribly useful:

Granted, I don't WANT the Wolves to go after Shasta, but wouldn't it be better if they kill an Ordo tonight instead of the Ranger? And his "that's a warning" post sure FELT like Ranger.

Through Nilp's ostensible presence into the mix and the Wolves have an actual choice to make.

I have no idea who voting for Shasta signified on the schema, though...

I think this would be rather fitting just about now -

In the meanwhile, the dwarves sat in darkness, and utter silence fell about them.

...Except I'd almost prefer the utter silence to some of the utter insanity on that thread

I think Rikae is the Cobbler, and I think Lommy is cozying up to Brinn to try to persuade her to vote their way. We need Pitch and Nilp to vote Mac asap, and then our empowerment will force a tie that we win. Tense deadline.......

Blind Guardian has just left Hobbiton.
++Shasta

I have to go and I won't be back before the DL. I want to vote for someone (as opposed to silence, which I think is bad!) and agreed that Mac is furry.

Hopefully this helps and doesn't hinder.

Am starting to worry Rikae might be the Cobbler. I mean:

If they're not the Cobbler, then they just insulted the Cobbler directly, which seems a bit beyond how the game is normally played? This just feels like a poke at themselves more than at an unknown other player.

Yes, I think Rikae is the Cobbler and I think they know who the wolves are.

And yes, for those who have to vote for Medium early, Shasta is a good choice - but remember that the vote locks in the second we hit four votes!!

WHERE is Nilp? If Brinn and Rikae vote with the wolves, we NEED him.

So we're waiting for the wolves to open the game on their behalf.

Interesting to see, whether they have patience to wait for an innocent to misfire first (Rikae looks likely candidate to make a bad decision at the moment) and how hungrily they dare to jump on it - especially if Mac starts gathering more votes (which is quite possible indeed).

That of course presupposing our theories are correct.

The wolves will have to vote soon, if only to indicate to their cobbler who to vote. One of Brinn and Rikae is a misled innocent. We either need the innocent to figure out what's going on, waste their vote, or Nilp to show up.

That's actually a good catch.

I might have to since it's already midnight and I'm not sure I'll still be functional in an hour, though rate this is going I'm not sure if I can sleep So I'll hang around for a little longer and if I have to go I'll vote to empower Shasta.
