and my brain hurts from all of the 'meta' role discussion that's going on. It seems to me like all the posting that has been happening toDay might make a lot more sense in the future. This is my first actual game but i've watched and lived vicariously through my roommates in WW for like ever so i do have a little experience and Day one posts never really seem to make sense and especially in this game because no one really knows anything. There wasn't even a Night phase so we can assume the seer is equally uninformed.

I'm going to post before I have to refresh again and see a new page. xD

I think Nerwen is definitely a cheerleader for her task, as someone else mentioned.

Yes, to what use would working out whom has a posting requirement?

It could help distinguish the ones who actually have them, and the ones who are trying to look like they have one. I'm not sure how it works here with posting requirements - as in what the normal is. But elsewhere I've played, I don't think I ever saw a baddie with a posting requirement. I think for the most part, because they always draw quick attention, and you can even get lynched depending on the level of annoying-ness.

If we lynch the people whom are acting normal, well who would that be? That would be a pool of one or two, me thinks. Better to lynch the youtube affiliates I would say.

Soooo question...

I've never played or watched a game with lovers. How does it work? Do they know who the other is or do they have to figure it out? Someone said something earlier about if one dies the other goes with xem... Or does it all depend on the individual game?

Nog why is it troubling about Rikae's mention of no posting requirement? It doesn't say everyone will have one. Just that everyone will have a role. Role and requirement of posting, are not the same.

I think Shasta is not able to say anything relevant to the game.

Well, I would assume Sally gave the posting requirements out pretty randomly, and I doubt Izzy's assumption that they wouldn't be given to baddies is right. After all, in this game it's expected that people will act strangely.

Good call, Nog, on Fea not being allowed to banter - that fits.

But don't forget that not all posting requirements are such by nature that they can be executed at any time - or that they should be executed all the time.

I think Sally said it quite clearly that everyone will have some posting requirements. It is, I think, the whole clue to this game that we need to play something that is forced on us - whatever it is.

Looking at your confusion about this issue (thinking that some have requirements and others don't) just increases my slight suspicions on Rikae... and possibly you as well. Though to your credit it must be said you did not claim you had no requirements on your posting so you were not lying about it like Rikae did.

So the problem with Rikae is that she lied - and I can't see a reason a good gifted should have felt a need to make such a lie at that point in the game. Or then Sally has failed to give her the requirements she gave everyone else.

But if that "giving requirements" -stuff was the whole point of the game, I dare to doubt that possibility.

EDIT: X'd with Izzy, Rikae and Mira

Mac's posting requirement could be to use a specific word posted by the moddess at some point during the day? I don't know, the word "fishy" just stuck out to me so soon after Mnemo posted for no reason. And it was Mac's first post after she posted.

Page 6 (so far)

Funny, Izzy. :P

Also, I'm getting a strange vibe from Nogrod. Why are you so insistent that Rikae lied about having a posting requirement? You yourself said you didn't have one. I can say with surety that I don't have one. Yet you seem to be starting to put suspicion on Rikae for something you yourself said, and I don't like that.

*watches Nogrod*

I think I'm quoting this same thing for the hundreth time but let me quote it more fully now and bold / underline some parts for you to take notice...

With that in mind, you will each receive personalized PMs detailing your obligations and/or role for the game. Some will be fun things for you to do or contain information about Daily challenges you must complete, while others will be highly specific and may contain the moddess synopsis of your playing style/memes. (In advance, no offense is meant to anyone, except of course Phantom and Mith. All of you are fine people and fine players, but since I want to create utter havoc with your brains I first have to identify and disassemble the way you behave now in order to have my fun.
I think that is quite plain talking?

I anm still slogging through the posts having had various technical issues but just on past experience, I don't know how significant a Rikae lie is... she is someone who likes to mix things up to get a reaction ..in someways a lie for her might be honest... since she might be more careful as a wrong-un ..unless of course self sacrifice is her mission. Anyway .. I suppse I should actually read her posts before commenting ..though that is liable to prejudice one so.. and is so much effort... though I see The Phantom has posted... a brief glimmer of light in my darkness...

Ok, Nogrod, before you go flatly stating that I "lied", I suggest you go reread what Sally said. It only implies that everyone will have a role, not that they will be required to post something.

Oh yeah, I had forgotten there was no Night. So absolutely everyone's come in blind, though I assume the wolves at least were told who their companions were as part of the role assignment. Though that would make this quite a Day if there were not.

That particular comment was responding to his posting style in general. The rest was about his comment on my damning 'possibility'. That was not at all clear, I know, I know.

Nog, what you quote from the admin thread pretty clearly says "roles and/or requirement".

Feanor of the Peredhil - I'll be sad if she can't banter. Fea-banter makes the game for me.
Brinniel - I always think she's innocent. *slaps self* Gotta stop doing that...
wilwarin538 - Looks pretty innocent to me.
Shastanis Althreduin - Obviously a Werebear/Werewolf/Wereduck/Werehotairballoon. LYNCH!
Mirandir - Very floaty, our Mira. But if she's evil, she's suicidal. I feel good about her.
Durelin - Speaks sense. I think she's innocent.
Nogrod - Will probably get my vote today. See above post.
Isabellkya - No read.
Nerwen - Berry berry bouncy. But she could be a bouncy wolf. Otherwise, no read.
Rikae - I think she's innocent. But then again, much like Brinn, I always think she's innocent. *sigh*
Mith - Grey Queen Mith! otherwise no read.
Kath - No real read, other than she's on the "serious" side of the fence and strikes me as innocent for being there.
Lari - Chattery. Wolfish? Maybe. No read.
Mac - I always think Mac's evil, but, no read.
Nienna - I'll give her a day.
Gwathagor - No read.
Thinlómien - Serious side of the fence. Otherwise, no read.
Legate of Amon Lanc - Leaning innocent.
Nilpaurion Felagund - ...it's freaking Nilp.

I've always thought drowning was the worst way to die. I see nothing romantic about throwing yourself/falling into a river and drowning for love, no matter what all those historic fiction writers say.

Actually, I'm not quite sure. I mean, we shouldn't merely concentrate on such a small group of people, surely.

Could people please stop posting IC and making stupid jokes? This game is difficult enough to follow even without that...

Sorry to be a bit grumpy, but I don't like being this confused. I will try to find some suspicious behaviour next...

Oh... well, maybe you're right. In retrospect, maybe drowning's not the worst.

Actually, I think Nogrod is right. I lied about a lack of posting requirements. After all, having posting requirements when people think you don't means that they will assume your odd behavior is cobblery and... er... lynch you... which is just what I want. And what Shasta wants, too, which is why he said he didn't have them either. And Nogrod too (originally typed "Nogod" ). I also only get mad to manipulate people, because I'm unsporting like that.

Actually, it's just what I *would* want, if I was a cobbler; but if I was a cobbler, you wouldn't want to lynch me. All in all, Nogrod seems a little overeager to accuse; experienced as he is, he ought to know better (and that goes for his earlier words about the "slip" so and so made, as well - since several people said things like "maybe we're all wolves/cobblers/ordos" at that point, it was clearly not meant seriously.)

Well, enough ranting.

Ooh, not to mention, were I trying to get lynched, I could come up with crazy antics that would do the trick without any help from the moddess.

Nog-cobbler?

I don't think he seems very sinister, just like he's trying to stir things up. Perhaps specifically against Rikae for a reason?

Rikae seems quite normal. Fairly belligerent.

I am agreeing a lot with Shasta and Lommy.

Nogrod and Mac seem like they're trying (Nogrod seems to be trying quite hard) to do some poking at people.

Kath and Izzy seem to be trying very hard to do some traditional suspecting.

Basically some people seem to be trying a little too hard to do...something. That could have to do with their assignments, but it also could still have to do with their roles.

For some reason I've been thinking that we will receive various assignments or obligations throughout there game, but there is nothing that says that. Darn, lol. I wonder how many of us will keep up with our assignment throughout the entire game...I don't know if this is a bad game to get lynched/killed on day/night 2 or 3...

No I didn't. Read the thread. I said I had a different obligation to fulfill than "be loud", "be silent", "make lists", "do not banter"...

Interestingly enough Dury comes to speculate on that very issue immediately, even lending the part of my post you should have read Shasta.

Now this is interesting in itself as well. I know people may talk on behalf of others but this looks a bit fishy, like a rush to defend someone indeed. Somehow the wording of it makes me suspect it even more; perhaps precisely? Now if you just shoot in the dark not knowing what's going on you don't use a word like "precisely" for someone else's intentions...

Also Dury says:

That particular comment was responding to his posting style in general. The rest was about his comment on my damning 'possibility'. That was not at all clear, I know, I know.
You have really fine antennas to respond to someone's posting style when that person had only done one short post to comment on in the first place. And from that one post you were able to say that I'm trying too hard and am bad... But you said there also that I am my normal self (Nogrod is just Nogrod) and we all know that was a bit different post from me if you compare it with these latter ones I've done after it (I was in a hurry and was only able to make the one point back then). So it wasn't too earnest, was it?

I indeed saw it as I was copy-pasting it this time - and had to think for a moment whether I was mistaken and should just pull back all I had said on the issue. But if you look at that quote more closely you should see that Sally clearly meant there was to be requirements for all to do things they wouldn't usually do (I bolded a host of parts from that quote to make that interpretation clearer). Look and see for yourselves.

I think this - added to the other things in her post - is the most important one:

Okay. Why do I always have to be a goodie in a game that has dozens of cobblers in it?

Gah, too many things going on... Back soon with further thoughts - after a cigarette to cool my brain.

I may have to break the be nice to newbies convention and vote Nienna. Despite her fondness for my Uncle Bill she is quite the most irritating Vala I have encountered in a WW game.

consider me officially off my trolley. Alternatively I could beg you all to lynch me and free me from this madness to rejoin the greyness, but that would be selfish.. I must meet my doom ....

I need to go soon and won't be back pre deadline.

I won't be voting for Dury, Lommie, or Mac because they are not making referencees to things I don't understand. I have never seen the Princess Bride. or whatever ...

Nilp is also exempt for being his delightful self (biased Mummie).

Rikae is interesting.

I am quite enjoying the Shasta / Nerwen double act but that just meand they are amusing. They could be feathered.

Nogrod always goes after me, and for strange reasons like that. Always. Every single game. This time, though, I think there may be more behind it than the usual habit - because of the way he does the same for several people at once. He seems a bit desperate to control the suspicions in this game.

Well, anyway -

I want to spend the evening with Bubbles, and, later, some work I've been putting off, so I'm going to call it a night. Lynch me if you like, I don't mind, but please don't go accusing me of being unsporting. '

Well, with Fea not talking and Nerwen being a fangirl/cheerleader and Brinniel just posting one-liners, I was wondering if we'd see something quite interesting out of you, and was rather looking forward to it.

Yes, you are posting differently now. You're still trying too hard, but in a different way.

Yes, trying too hard is now a fair accusation.

There are some people for who I could justify a vote for, but I don't feel extremely comfortable with either. I think I'll vote for someone who only bantered so far. It's Nienna's first game and Miri told us she will post something worthwhile later, so they're off the hook. Unless I'm forgetting someone, this leaves Brinn and Gwath. My gut says...

Other comments:

I'm a bit worried about how easily Mith took over Nogrod's "lie" thing about Rikae.

Sally's requirement for Lommy was to go insane.
Was Legate's requirement to complain all the time?

Only Day1 tactic that makes moderate sense, in my opinion.

First of all. Compare this page with the three (four) first ones.

And this time those posting on the first four can not say they made this discussion possible as they didn't (except a few individual posts that stood out from there miles away).

And just as this is getting interesting some people wish to start talking about preferable ways of dying... distracting a process of inquiry, suspicion, answers, forced bluffs - what this game is all about!

And what is this then?

Hah. Show me someone else who has suspected anyone with any grounds so far (not including the reactions how some have started suspecting me because of what I have said - and which Shasta's promise and your vote just underline)! One doesn't need to try and control something one is the only one doing...

So it looks like I started my post on a relevant topic then. Go back to the game of the first four pages if you wish. Your choice.

Actually, I think they did provoke discussion. At least i started suspecting them and still do.

My problem with this game is that I really can't concentrate on people because it's all so messy.

Why are you worried that I pointed out that her lying (if she lied which seems moot) wasn't necessarily an indication of werebeastiality?

That does seem odd...
