I don't know, I would argue that Sally is the biggest submarine. While Shasta may have less posts, I feel like his at least have more content than hers.

EDIT: X-post...and coincidentally Sally has posted some more content.

If we think the Dead communicated to us then Zil was innocent. Of the Zil band-wagon there are three alive toDay: Nerwen, Boro and Eönwe.

YesterDay two of these, Nerwen and Eönwe, voted for an innocent person trying seriously to get the ball rolling - and they have continued with the same target toDay. You naturally do not know this target's innocence, but I do.

If I was the EW, I would have chosen people like Brinn or Lalaith if looking for easy-going trustworthy wolves, or then maybe Nerwen for more effect. Correct me if I'm wrong, but when have you seen one of these to be lynched early in the game? A submarine is oftentimes a safe bet as well as they tend to be seldom lynched (there's always a "better" candidate).

I see one name popping out from all the three situations...

I'm gonna guess both Nogrod and Legate are around and willing to lynch Boro?

My top suspects for lynching are Legate and Eonwe. Legate for reasons I stated earlier toDay and my opinion of Eonwe has not changed since yesterDay.

Nogrod is another I'm still considering, but I'm feeling slightly hesitant about him.

Of course, we're all in the same group (with Lalaith) if the Dead want to indicate that Loslote was predator - does that matter?

I kind of doubted Boro would be a wolf, but then someone made a fair point: after seeing that he survived the D1-stuff the EW realised he'd sail through and turned him.

Like said, I'm not sure it is a great reason to vote for someone, but it is reason, especially if one thinks the person acts fishy or oddly anyway.

I'm all for lynching Eönwe, not that much for Legate - I have doubts on everyone, naturally, but nothing special towards him (his latest posts have seem okay to me).

Well if so, vote-wise it doesn't matter, and then the narration will tell who of us was empowered in such case, but it does not really make a difference in terms of votes.

I'm more comfortable with him than Nog or Legate at this point, and I think this could be a safe shot at a redirection of the lynch. I certainly feel better about this than throwing behind one of the other current trains.

Ok, I don't know what to do.
Nogs was ringing alarm bells all over the place for me yesterDay at DL and i was, at the time, thinking "oh my goodness what is this, I am so going to push for a lynch if I survive the night". (Well I thought something along those lines but I've cleaned it up as we can't cuss on the Downs) And what is worrying me is that he keeps explaining why he missed the deadline but hasn't explained why he needed to wait *until* the deadline

I would still be up for voting to lynch Boro. Particularly as he said he wasn't going to be weird anymore and then his vote for Legate was really weird.

Eomer I voted for on Day 2 but then other people started worrying me more: he is being very insouciant and genial at the moment and that's nice, but I wonder if I was wrong to take my eye off him. Nobody else seems to suspect him though.

And then there's Eonwe. He's like one of those pictures where you don't know if you see a vase or two faces...one minute I look and see innocence, the next I totally see why Brinn was gunning for him.

I do not think Legate is guilty and won't vote for him. I am totally at sea about Nogs. I fear I will regret whatever I do.

This was even more sudden than yesterDay's voting even if it took place a few minutes earlier.

Well, let's hope it went well. I kind of have a feeling we might have done good.

Boots NIGHT Five

It was a busy DAY among the guests.

Except for the hours long pauses where they just sat and stared at each other.

Then they would burst into frantic activity...and then stop.

Shastanis Althreduin suddenly leapt to his feet and cried, "I FEEL STRANGELY EMPOWERED!"

"That's nice, dear," said one of the other guests.

"Let's kill Boro," suddenly piped up one.

"Good idea," said another.

"He's wanted to die for ages," agreed a third.

"But I'm not invoking the magic words," said Boro. "I don't want to die now."

"Too bad!"

*grab*

"But...wait, waaaaaait! I don't want to die now! I have a plan...

CLUNK!!!

Those who were expecting something weird to happen were surely disappointed as his head sheared off and rolled away across the ground.

"Oh well, he's in a better place," said an oddly cheerful voice.

Those who knew his head would sheer off were mad with glee.

Boots DAY Five

bzzzzzzzzZZZZZZzzzzZZZZZzzz booOOOOOoop *fizzle*

"Can you believe this?!" came a voice.

That was the only noise in the NIGHT.

Suddenly, dawn came suspiciously early. Surely that couldn't portend anything.

The guests gathered round the guillotine.

As was expected by this point, their number was reduced by one.

No more Nogrod.

In spite of his absence, this promised to be a most interesting DAY.

This gets stranger and stranger. And scarier. What are all these noises meant to mean?

Well, it looks like Nogs was innocent after all, so I'm glad we didn't lynch him.
I've been thinking about what the Dead are trying to tell us (apart from the rather depressing fact that Lottie was innocent, as well). They seem to like the votes for Eonwe and Legate.
Also, if we are all still here - are we innocents still in a small majority? (5 versus 3, in that case?)
Or can the game not end until there is a Duel?

I would not have expected the wolves to kill Nogrod, that's for sure.

Will try to do an actual coherent post-analysis at some point today on Legate.

They must have thought he was a gifted/ the GW. It certainly isn't a no-trace kill, and it doesn't make sense as a frame.

...And now you know why I kept getting cold feet about voting him, even though he was really acting awfully suspicious. I've seen Nog get obsessed like that as an innocent (and as a wolf).

Wasn't it clarified that it still works like a normal game, in that respect?

About the Dead- I think they make their decision as to whom to empower during the Day, don't they? So likely before all the votes are in. Or were those early votes?

I wondered if they killed him as a scry - they might have wondered if he was the GW.
The wolves have, I suppose, two goes at a GW scry each Night - if they try to turn or kill the GW they get told they've found him/her, right?

Well, the target's failure to die would convey that anyway.

Was the site down for anyone else?
