Unvote Sunny Daze

Vote snfaulkner

He had a huge motive to knock off everyone with high post counts. Plus Stranger had him pegged for scum in Day 1, and Biotop was taking a serious look at him Day 2. Now they're both dead, thanks in part to snfaulkner's votes those days.

1. snfaulkner
2. Mahaloth
3. Johnny Bravo
4. Knowed Out
5. Sunny Daze

What it's worth isn't much, as you just got lynched.

Final vote tally:

Mahaloth: 0 (Johnny Bravo 598-620)
Hi, Neighbor: 3 (Knowed Out 599, Mahaloth 600, snfaulkner 638)
Sunny Daze: 0 (Hi, Neighbor 601-651)
Knowed Out: 1 (Johnny Bravo 620)
snfaulkner: 2 (Sunny Daze 623, Hi, Neighbor 651)

Day 3 post totals:

snfaulkner 7
Johnny Bravo 8
Hi, Neighbor! 16
Mahaloth 11
Sunny Daze 5
Chronos 4
Knowed Out 5

Hi, Neighbor, a Townie, is dead

This means that toMorrow would be 2 Scum vs. 2 Town. At this point, the total post count for Days 1-3 would resolve any ties. That total count is:

snfaulkner 93
Johnny Bravo 49
Hi, Neighbor! 51
Mahaloth 38
Sunny Daze 31
Chronos 17
Knowed Out 20

With these counts, Mahaloth and Sunny Daze could both vote for Knowed Out, and nobody could stop them. Scum therefore now control the vote.
Mahaloth, Vinnie
and
Sunny Daze, Books
have won.

I'll admit that I hadn't thought through all of the implications of the tiebreaker mechanic. Scum always have an incentive to night-kill talkative players, which (as players in this game correctly realized) was made even greater by the tie-breaker. But what players in this game didn't realize was that the tie-breaker also gave Town a greater incentive to lynch low-activity players. If Town had lynched Knowed Out today, it would still have been a mislynch, but it wouldn't have been game over, and in fact, Town would have had a very good chance of winning.

Thanks for the game, Chronos! It's refreshing to get back to basics every now and then. Now to get caught up of at giraffe were the current game is anything but basic.

One of my better games and we did a great job picking off the right people.

Honestly, I don't think as much thought went into the decisions as people thought. We only made 35 total posts including introducing ourselves to each other and the mod's posts.

You guys didn't even have to do that much conniving. You just came up with colorful ways of killing victims and let the townies go all manic panic on each other.

At least I didn't lose in spectacular fashion. FTR, whenever I play murder mystery games irl, I'm usually the suspect because I can't resist jerking everybody's chain. In one game I had the real killer dead to rights but everybody voted me because I was such a dick.

Yes, Town killed itself, mainly.
