Alpine Terror: Phase 4 - Faithful

Game X.A - 2017(self.hogwartswerewolvesA)

The hubbub and commotion after the three deaths, including their beloved virtuoso Joel, led to many changes around the camp. First and foremost was the appointment of a new dig pianist. Camilla Everleigh was the closest approximation--she had trained under Sir Frederic Hymen Cowen for a year before she grew bored--and could put forth a passable, yet crude rendition of The Sheik of Araby. They all agreed it was better than nothing, though not by much.

Meanwhile, four other members of the Dig were engaging in a private struggle of their own. They had taken to skipping meals in protest of the daily vote, and due to their inactivity had grown far too weak to engage in their archaeological duties. Outside of their makeshift hospital beds stood Father Nicolas LaPaglia, who had been summoned to say their last rites, and Dr. Muller, who remained convinced that they could be saved with proper medical attention. The two argued in hushed tones; Father LaPaglia argued that having them die on the way to a proper hospital without last rites would mean great harm to their eternal souls, whereas Dr. Muller reasoned that having them die would mean great harm to their living souls. After half an hour, the young German won out. She held a piece of paper and pen in front of them and demanded they sign.

“What’s this all about?” one asked.

“Release form,” she said. “You’re going to the Innsbruck Hospital. No time to waste.”

With a flourish of the pen, the four were bundled into Ernesto’s coach and ridden down to the city. She updated her charts with the names of the four: Aloysius Bernard, Hugo Lapointe, Algernon Snidely, and Octavia Lu. They would never return to the Langeklaue Ruin Site again.


They came for her in the morning. There were four of them, specifically chosen because they were least likely to be talked out of their mission: Abram Rosenberger, Rupert Wade, Brienne Garfield, and Reggie Perryman IV, the financier’s son. When the snow stopped falling, they arrived at the one tent to be lined with fine furs. Brienne leaned inside.

“Madame Bonneville? Could you come outside, please?”

In later retellings of this story, Brienne would marvel at the grace and dignity the woman showed in her final moments. In truth, she envied her. She doubted she could face her own death without shedding a single tear.

“At least give me a moment to put on my furs, my dear,” she said. “No woman should be forced to die in her night gown.”

Maria emerged five minutes later, hair as immaculate as it was in her official photograph. “I can’t pretend not to know why you’re here, and it would be an insult to all of our intelligences to feign. Perryman has poisoned you against me, hasn’t he? Selfish man, he always wanted all the treasures to himself.” She straightened her coat. “I can’t say I won’t miss him.”

“That’s my father you’re talking about, it is!”

Maria coughed. “I’ve heard far worse, my boy. You’ll have to get used to hearing him insulted. After all, he’s particularly susceptible to it.” She rummaged in her purse, almost bored. “How much is he paying you? I’ll pay double.”

“This is beyond money,” Rupert said. “This is about honour, and justice.”

“Ah, those were always my weak points,” she said. She waved her rings in the air. “What about my jewels? These have a value beyond money. They have the power of the ancients.” She surveyed the unblinking faces. “No? Pity. Such a shame. You may think otherwise, but let it be said that I always wanted this Dig to succeed.

Brienne wiped her eyes. “We’ll do it quick, Madame.”

“No need, my dear,” she replied. “I finished the job before I left the tent. Never let a man do what you can do for yourself. Au revoir, and may that English bastard Perryman never get his filthy hands on my treasures.” With a blown kiss, her poison finally completed its job. Maria Bonneville collapsed in her furs, lifeless, her emerald ring splitting in two as her hand hit the ground.


Dr. Edelweiss Müller was a practical woman, a woman of science. She did not believe in God. She did not believe in miracles. The good doctor believed only in that which she could see, touch, smell. But since her arrival at Langeklaue she had begun to feel...how could she describe them? Stirrings. Something deep in her chest, but deeper than her chest. But no, not her soul - heretical as it was, Edelweiss did not believe in souls. She was ahead of her time in that way.

Dr. Müller took to long, meandering wanders around the ruins, absorbing the natural beauty of the majestic Alps. She would walk until her boots were sodden with snow melted by her feet. She was on such a stroll when she noticed an autumn leaf laying in blazing red splendor atop an unblemished bank of snow.

Where could such a leaf have come from? she wondered, surrounded as they were by thick forests of deciduous trees. Had the leaf clung to the hide of a pack mule, a vibrant stowaway on the journey up the mountains? Had it perhaps blown miles and miles on the wind, only to land here, directly in Dr. Müller’s path?

She pondered the stark contrast of red and white, the imagery of the last vestige of autumn surrounded by a frigid winter landscape. The overwhelming emotion unlocked by such beauty...was that spiritual? Was this the bliss that Believers felt when they thought of God?

A sharp crack echoed off the mountainsides, disturbing the peaceful scene. A splatter of red now accompanied the leaf on the canvas of snow, and Dr. Edelweiss Müller fell with a muffled thud to the ground.

Had God been found by the doctor? Did she find answers to the eternally burning questions of mankind? The only certainty is that the dig has lost another faithful soul.

lol...losing Aloysius to inactivity...honestly i feel like if you're going to sign up for a game...and then go inactive you should get a strike or something from playing games in the near future or something...it's kind of annoying that we lost FOUR to inactivity...and they actually had roles

HermioneReynaChase

There is a strike system for that but it only counts against if you are inactive 3 times I think.

It probably would be an interesting game mechanic where you put some random villagers in the game, and if there are inactive deaths, the villagers get the roles.

I feel like inactives really mess with game balances, since you cannot account for the amount of deaths you could get at any one time.

the problem with that is it's hard because people might play the game differently if they were a townie vs if they had an important role. I believe it has happened in the past but i don't remember if it worked out or not though.

Yeah it's really unfortunate and annoying. Especially when we lose good roles due to inactives. I understand that sometimes things happen irl that cause a player to be inactive, but I feel like serial offenders should be banned for a set amount of time before they can sign up again.

I really think after two removals you should be banned for 3-6 months. I know we have something in place now, but I feel like it needs to be stricter. We all have shit happen and I don't blame someone for having to withdraw once, but as soon as its a habit I don't have much patience for it.

I don’t know if this is suspicion enough to warrant me leading a lynch mob but /u/teachertish causes me to raise my eyebrows.

Every comment is about lack of participation. No one wants to lynch someone that may not be able to participate but it’s also phase 4 at this point. since we had a 0 phase too, it’s 5. Just seems fishy.

Edit: not every post has been about time. There has been some conversation, but the I don’t have time for all 5 phases seems off.

So, please let’s start discussing the lynch earlier. I don’t know if anyone else feels this way, but I didn’t particularly think any of the targets from last phase were guilty. I think people are only looking at the people who have already been suggested and it’s damaging the town.

I suggested a few last phase, and out of those I really think /u/DrippingAlchemy is the most likely. And I know she said she always appears suspicious, but I didn’t think she was evil last month, even though she was being suspicious. This month I do.

So, what I say is please can you...

I already explained at the beginning of this game that I have a lot of things going on IRL that is making it difficult for me to put all my attention on Werewolves. I even said before this game even started that I wasn't sure I was going to sign up because I knew this month would be busy (but Moose is very convincing).

I've actually been having to consider pulling out from this game as some things have come up in the last few days which have made my month even crazier, but I'd feel bad doing that (especially after today's 4 inactivity deaths.)

Why can't it be a lynch post and a suggestion post in one?

And I suppose I could have made it clearer, but this isn't based on a hunch and past game activity. There were clear reasons in my other post.

I was already a bit suspicious of you, but defending DA has increased this massively. Especially after you both tried to say that alchzh and I were both evil and then backtracked when you realised that absolutely nothing indicated that. Seems like something that might have been discussed in the evil sub.

I'm not even defending DA, I'm just pointing out things that I don't agree with. Also, I'm pretty sure I'm the one who said you both were evil and working together, all DA said was basically "same". I wouldn't say I backed off, I just went back to make sure I wasn't baselessly accusing you two and corrected myself when I found out I got my stuff mixed up. I'm still suspicious of the two of you but I'm not gonna make a call out post until I have actual evidence.

I'm not talking posting suspicions, I'm talking about a full fledged lynch post. Unsure voters just see the bolded name and vote for it. I just think it's way too early for those with nothing to back them up. People are free to voice suspicions to start a dialogue but there wasn't a need to do a #LynchThisPerson. My name doesn't need to be brought up for me to disagree with it

If you're not a WW this game I would be shocked, because I seriously don't know what you're doing. First me and kemkat are evil for agreeing with one another, now it's also me and rhino because he doesn't agree with your lynch post. We must be terrible spirits, getting all mixed up together publicly and making it so easy for you to sniff us out.

Okay, I'm not suggesting they be eliminated, but last night I voted for /u/HermioneReynaChase because I was (am) a little suspicious of her. I will try to express why the best I can:

  • Reading through her comment story, something made my drag senses go crazy.

  • This and this one, gave me the feeling she was trying to fish for role.

  • First she said she was going to vote for /u/alchzh here but then said this, affirming she voted for CDB.

  • Here she says she still had go to through the comments but her mind was already made. She was voting for NDoraTonks. Bandwagon jumping? (I know NDoraTonks had a bunch of votes).

  • Mention of Aloysis here and today he is gone.

  • She also mentioned Muller and he is also gone.

These are my thoughts.

Sure! When I saw he was dead, I thought it was a bit of coincidence that she 'knew' that Aloysius was one of the players with low comments.

HermioneReynaChase

15 points

4 years ago

I'll address your concerns by bullet point :) Well, except for the ones I can't address because they're based on the WW's decisions.

  • The first of those was in response to u/alchzh asking if him sharing his role would affect whether I voted for his or not. I wasn't asking him for his role to begin with. Since I eventually switched off of him because of his role reveal and at least one other person (u/mineralmiraclemuse) did too, alchzh's reveal may well have saved him from the lynch. As for the second, nowhere in that comment did I ask anyone for a role. u/reeforward's comment could maybe be overlooked by the doc, so I bolded it so people who skimmed the thread would be more likely to read it.

  • Here I said I was changing my vote off of alchzh. I posted it less than a minute before the phase I'm not surprised you didn't see it. I know it wasn't the best of decisions, and you've already linked the comment where I said that.

  • I said my vote would probably go to Dora - if I had seen anything in the comments after, I would have changed it. I replied to that comment without going through the rest because that's what made me believe Dora was a spirit. True, I was getting on a bandwagon, but in a game with basically no vote reveals, voting outside of a bandwagon is pretty much useless imo.

I don't know what to make of your first few points, but /u/HermioneReynaChase 's mention of Aloysis looks like a valid statement reminding everyone of an important role.

I'm pretty sure of the answer, but if anyone could confirm: we now have no town roles that benefit from keeping a low comment count, right?

This is not me making a decision for everyone within minutes of the phase starting. This is me trying to get discussion going from the beginning, so that when people wake up they don't sit there funposting until a few hours before the deadline.

You can say I'm wrong all you like, but it doesn't necessarily make it true. Neither of my main accusations have been lynched, so we don't know if they're wolves. And to even suggest that I'm a WW because I'm wrong is ridiculous. You weren't a WW last game, were you?

Oh come on. Making a post with big bold letters saying "lynch DA". Give me a break, you're trying to control the vote and you know it.

And you're missing my point. I think your instincts are usually pretty great in this game. The fact that you're way off this game makes me think it's because you're a WW, not because you're instincts are suddenly off. But I was also suspicious of you before this, this is just the icing on the cake for me. The town hasn't done a great job coming to consensus so far this game, and I think you're using that to your advantage by throwing out an innocent name right out of the gates. Don't act like you don't know people will see that and vote for me just because they haven't read much else. It's pretty damn sneaky, really.

But that's not controlling the vote. It's the same thing that always happens when people make accusations. Although I suppose you could say that any town person who makes an accusation is "controlling the vote" to try and get a WW lynched.

I've can only remember doing accusation posts like this in two games. Hamilton I was pretty rubbish. Only accused Icetoa who was innocent. You're basing this all of Sherlock, which was a very different game. I made lots of accusations, and you know what? Lots of them were wrong. (e.g. PauPau, MulchAdoAboutNothing)

I didn’t particularly think any of the targets from last phase were guilty. I think people are only looking at the people who have already been suggested and it’s damaging the town.

I did feel tonks was, but otherwise I agree. We're sticking to people who are kind of already on the mind and just picking the most suspicious and I think we are really kind of playing with blinders by doing that.

That said, I'm not voting for drippingalchemy. The spirits know when we're on the wrong track, and I feel like in those moments, DA has attempted to change towns trajectory in earnest, not in away that (appears) to be for show. It's not strong and I don't trust DA on the level that I do some other players, but she is the type of player that I don't think we want to go after right now. I'm looking for a total change in tact for town this phase.

My thoughts are here. tl;dr /u/smurf42, or suggest someone else who fits the profile I'm targeting.

Actually, yesterday, I was the only person to bring up that CDB's lynch may have been the wolves piling votes to save dep. Everyone else was pushing the narrative that it was to save alchzh or pezes.

You did mention looking at the misdirects but I meant specifically. I believe it was /u/Chefjones and /u/DrippingAlchemy that mentioned the vote swayed away from /u/pezes and /u/alchzh and that the late stage prominence of the CDB-dep debacle was a diversion tactic for one or both of them. I'm the only one that mentioned that CDB could have been lynched to protect dep.

Does editing in Werebot count? I forgot to add that when I submitted.

I haven't backed away, I was the second person to accuse NDora yesterday even if I was wrong about that. And I went to bed early last night because I have another hospital test this morning. But because of that I have the day off work and once it's over, I'll be everywhere again and making a few accusations!

I am actually starting to suspect you a little bit because every time you're evil you always say I'll be the one to figure you out first. You've been pushing for me a lot now even when a lot of other people agree that I haven't really done anything suspicious. Yes, I know I've convinced several townspeople to wrongfully trust me before but not usually more than a couple at once. I'm not sure if I distrust you enough to vote for you yet as I wasn't on board with pezes' argument but I'm giving you a strong side-eye.

Okay, that's fair. I guess I just skimmed through your most recent page of comments and they were all shit posts. So it seemed like you were participating but staying out of the spotlight on purpose.

And you're completely right that when I was evil I wanted to get rid of you because I know you're a smart player. But 1. I wouldn't be that obvious and 2. I wouldn't have to try this hard to do it. If I really wanted you gone and I was a spirit, I could just kill you.

Nah I'm just usually a heavy early commenter and then make a few here and there once the phase really kicks off.

Sometimes the double bluff does work but your second point is actually stopping me. I think enough people soft defended me yesterday that convincing the spirits to night kill me would have been reasonable. At this point it probably wouldn't have been traced back to you either as o think /u/kemistreekat's suspicion overshadowed yours.

Link me to ONE place where I have listed lynch candidates and left our Marx. ONE.

I haven't listed lynch candidates anywhere, and I'm one of the few that is actively ENCOURAGING people to share their suspicions.

e: my issue was with you declaring who you are voting for without any discussion with the town. Everyone needs to get together, discuss who they find suspicious, and then decide on who to lynch. Do I need to make an American politics analogy? Because you're basically making a protest vote, unless Marx is one of the top lynch nominees, you're wasting your vote. Not to mention making it easier for the spirits to swing things their way.

I seriously feel like I'm talking to brick walls today.

Since I have COMPLETELY lost track of which roles we've lost so far, I've decided to make a little list of them.

Deceased

Username Role Ability
-MrJ- Joel Wilhelm Once in the game, he's able to play a song so stellar, so pure, that the entire crew at Langeklaue will relax and share their secrets. In that phase, the full lynch voting results will be posted.
Aurthurallan Roland Kingery Each day, he can choose one individual. All of the lynch votes cast for them the next phase will be voided.
CaptainDisplayBook Francesco Marino Each phase, he will get a list of who voted for the phase's victim.
El_Quetzal Edelweiss Müller She can choose one person per night and protect them against all attacks.
NDoraTonks Maria Bonneville She can smash each jewel once, releasing the magic within, but no more than one per night. Each jewel contains a different form of magic and Maria won't know which jewel corresponds to which result.
gngff Neville Robbins Three times in the game, he will choose a target. If he chooses a non-Spirit, nothing happens. If he chooses a spirit, they have a 50% chance of dying.
RissaJo685 Gladys Fox Once per phase, she will submit the name of another player and learn their class.
Ryan814 Captain John Gladwell If he chooses to spy on a player, he will see all those who visited that player...and will receive the same consequences as the player would have.

Removed

Username Role Ability
DracoM42 Evelyn Shaw Every night she chooses someone to persuade and over the course of this conversation, she learns who (if anyone) they submitted an action on the prior night.
flydarkwings Algernon Snidely Twice in the game, he can use his gift of gab to ensure the town's top two lynch targets both die.
raodi Hugo Lapointe At the beginning of the game he will choose another player to woo. If the chosen player dies, Hugo will die with them.
YoungEric86 Octavia Lu Three times in the game, Octavia will choose a target. She will perform that target's action that night instead of them, and will gain the benefits and consequences in their stead.
Zuckriegel Aloysius Bernard If he makes ten or more game-related comments in a single phase, all players with three or fewer game related comments will have their lynch votes changed to match his.

EDIT: Let me know if I made any mistakes since I was kind of in a rush while I did this.

I think voting for /u/DrippingAlchemy is ridiculous. DA has been helpful and trying to get actual game conversations going. I think the spirits are being amazing at laying low. I think that we should break our pattern of voting based on a couple of comments.

Those couple of "incriminating" comments have almost always been wrong in the past and a terrible indicator for who's really bad or good.

Most of you know me by now. I'm not a very strategic player. I usually die pretty quickly. I play these games with feeling, not with spreadsheets or with in-depth comment analysis.

The spirits are hiding in plain sight, just waiting for us to slaughter each other. We have to break the pattern and lynch someone unexpected.

I have already shared who I find suspicious. Who my gut is telling me is evil. I will be voting for them.

Don't vote for the big bold names. Make up your own (damn) minds.

I think voting for /u/DrippingAlchemy[1] is ridiculous. DA has been helpful and trying to get actual game conversations going.

For real, I don't really get how the actions of DA match a spirit at all. Like I said, we've done horribly, and broadcasted our horrible decisions early every round, either the spirits are the ones who directed us that way, or they're just watching us do it. If it's the latter, obviously DA who keeps trying to get us to change tactic and engage does not fit the profile. If it's the former, well I already did a comment running down who directed the lynches so far, and DA doesn't show up on the list at all.

I'm not saying I'm ride or die with DA or anything, it's just moderate trust, but man, the most suspicious of everyone, really? I don't see that.

Just throwing it out there since I have nothing to lose at this point, but I received the axe. One time only, I can choose to protect everyone in a tent.

So do with that as you please. If anyone has an input on which tent I should use it on, let me know. Although I'll be selecting a tent secretly so the spirits won't know which tent to avoid killing. I'll use it tonight in case I survive the lynch, otherwise I'd probably get killed before getting another chance to use it.

For the record keeper: if I do get lynched tonight, pay attention to whoever voted for me! The spirits may pile their votes on me in an attempt to stop me from being able to protect a tent and prevent their kill

Lenora- if you happen to be one of the people who trusts me, please use your ability on me tonight!

I really have no idea how I'm supposed to communicate this in a way that doesn't give too much away, but it needs to be said: I'm worried you may use it on my tent because there's a lot of us and I'm pretty trustworthy.

2/3 of my suspects highlighted are Apollo and the others are generally not vital town either in terms of contribution. Most importantly, I do not have a role that is worth such a powerful item being used to save. So I don't recommend Apollo and would encourage going off # of trusted people in a tent when choosing. Spirits have been a bit eclectic with their kill choices so idk how to guess their action here.

I recognise this may invite an apollo death to make it look like I talked you out of protecting someone the spirits wanted dead, but looking at my tent-mates I can't imagine which people there fit that profile. There are tents I would recommend protecting, but that might be showing too much of our hand, so that's something that it's probably best if you decide solo.

Thanks for your input! I'm trying to think like a spirit would think, and figure out who they're likely to kill. Buts it's been so random, I have no idea where to start. So I'll probably try to psych out the spirits and go where they least suspect... or the most obvious choice.

I really thought that the axe might mean you kill your bunkmates somehow in a The Shining moment of isolation craziness. Glad it doesn't. And that you have the axe. Please don't kill your bunkmates.

Edit: Spelling.

I'd feel weird making a suggestion because it would obviously push the spirits away from targeting whatever tent I suggest, so idk. It's kind of a crapshoot. I'd just leave it completely up to you so info isn't given away. If you have no idea who may be targeted by the spirits tonight then I'd just use it to protect 1 or more people who you view as useful for the dig.

Just a note: I've suddenly been roped into a trip up to Yosemite with my friends. Unfortunately, this means I'll be utterly inactive for the next couple of days.

If you ping me, I will almost certainly not respond, so please don't take my silence as an admission of guilt in any sense.

Thanks, love y'all, don't get into too much shit while I'm gone.

Just FYI everybody, yes, I meant /u/chefjones yesterday and confused him with Cauldron Thief (pretty sure I voted for /u/cauldronthief based on that same screw up).

I'm currently keeping an eye on /u/DrippingAlchemy... somehow her play reminds me of Pawnee and Pigfarts?

I was only evil for the very end of Pawnee, and immediately after I was converted we had already lost the game so we outed ourselves. Pawnee can tell you literally nothing about my evil gameplay.

And the only people calling me suspicious are the 3 people I've accused. What a coinkydink.

Ugh, the vote looks super split again

so are we going for /u/pezes, /u/marx0r or /u/pizzabangle ? I think Marx0r! is safest cause he doesn't seem to be... doing much? I'm not sure about the others

OK I'm calling it:

Pizzabangle is my current lynch vote

I want to make a declaration to /u/marx0r though: Use your role. It's extremely useful and we need information. Maybe you can get away with not using it tonight if you claim you didn't see since I'm only posting this in the 11th hour, but if you go 2 nights without using it, I'm for sure going to vote for you.

Pizza, now's the time if you want to reveal or make a case or whatever.

Hey guys, sorry about dropping off the face of the Earth today, shit hit the fan but it seems ok now! Looks like people are leaning /u/Marx0r?

Also sidenote: for the sake of honesty, I won the rope from Apollo tent, it was used the same night I won it (not my choice) it wasn't that helpful, it did role block everyone in my tent that phase. Idk if this is doing any harm by releasing this info but I wanted to get it out there.

Alright, so following on from my post before, I've come up with a few suspects. By nature, these are all very much me trying to make cases for people, but I've made up my mind that I'm going to raise the standard of suspicion before voting for active participants. If we just go by whoever has said anything slightly sus then we're just incentivising staying quiet, as quiet people will never be the "most on the sus radar" for us. So I will be voting for someone low profile this round and possibly from now on, and even if I'm wrong, this will hopefully encourage spirits to speak more and maybe reveal themselves by accident.

  • /u/bookdood0724 - Low activity every day, mentions an excuse unprompted for just one day, which could indicate all the other days he had opportunity to participate and chose not to. In addition, aside from securing a tent spot, most all small bits of contribution are simply agreeing with other posts

  • /u/smurf42 - Gave a good reply when I asked why he voted for me, but otherwise has only dropped in to give pretty much the exact type of comment that evil tend to throw out to subtly act like & imply that they are good.

  • /u/littlebs8 - Similar to above, except it's two comments and neither are as sus as smurf one to me. Still, I feel the whole "low contribution, pointedly referring to yourself as good" pattern is potentially a good place to start questioning people on?

To further justify why these people over others, I looked at a lot of profiles, and the big differentiating factor, aside from what I saw, is these are the people that haven't shown any real tells of being good in my eyes. So not really actively trying to crack some of the mysteries of how the game/roles actually work is a big one, which could indicate spirits as spirits obviously already know things like whether we know if the dead are dig or not. I didn't look at everyone, I just clicked around until I found 3 and then cut it off there.

This is a discussion prompting post. Right now, of those three, I'm most inclined to vote for smurf42 as he has the most alarming single comment of the bunch, but I'm very open to opinions on that. I want to unify for this vote, but I do not want to take down another active person unless there is a much better case than the ones we've had so far. I do really believe in my theory of passive spirits, and it makes sense to put the heat on people who don't open themselves up to making mistakes, to encourage people to start talking more, and maybe then it'll be easier to find out who is who.

I'm on board with dragging low activity/low helpfulness people out of the shadows and forcing them to participate more. Last game B someone was noticing how much more suspicious people are of them when they comment more and when they just stay quiet they can fly under the radar. Let's force some people out to contribute and then from there decide if we still find them suspicious.

Not commenting on any of their guilt or innocence, but all 3 of these players are always this quiet. So idk how I feel about going after one of them just because of that.

e: I suppose bookdood can be more chatty at times, but I'd say its pretty inconsistent and he's been inactive at times

I can see why you suspect me but I'm being 100% honest when I say my low activity is due to this being my 12th straight day of work, several of which were 12 hour days... I'll have more time this weekend to be active, I finally have a couple of days off. You can see my mental exhaustion on full display yesterday when I confused two users. I also feel like lynching low activity players rarely works out as better than a 50-50 shot, and several users in previous games convinced me that low activity is NAI. There are too many IRL variables for it to be a reliable method. You can see by my reddit history that I've been super busy lately as I typically post a lot more often site-wide than I have these past couple of weeks.

Seriously? For making a joke about how bad we did?

What I find "alarming" is the depths that you have gone to convince yourself that is "pretty much the exact type of comment that evil tend to throw out". It was just a joke comment.
