I was just thinking of this book, and how its timing (I was still thinking of "spring, 2021") would line up nicely with this mini-Downs revival, but, alas, a check of the release date now says...

I agree with Legate's basic premise: that the infodrops are the main source of potential imbalance. I think G55 did great with figuring them out as the game went along, and I think the hardest thing...

Well, we're down to ten minutes... I'm going to vote Morsul. The psychology just seems to match today's moods (and respective authors) better.

It is distressingly similar to being Live with a vote, but after having suffered the infinity of dying!

I kind of miss being the Ghost!

I mean... I lean innocent-Lommy, so I can definitely be persuaded. But if Kath is going Morsul, should we both do likewise?
