    !Thomamelas, I choose you.

    Fair enough. We might want to make sure Elldren and I stay tied.

    You're at two now and she's at 3.

    I find this soft network revelation more interesting than the Lemminghead bandwagon (though I agree that she's the type of low-post player we need to look at).

    Given that Thomamelas was the first to come forward, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and vote for !Elldren

    Remember, any ties within the top 3 are susceptible to actual Mafia shenanigans--just be aware that any ties within that range could end up with dead players.

    For those that are against intentionally tying the Vote, don't forget to avoid ties further down the line.

    Elldren, Farangu, and I are all tied for 2nd right now, for example, with 3 votes.

    Nope, not in this game. :P

    But, with Jason Todd's vote at #1083, we've got this:

    LemmingHead - 8
    Elldren - 3
    Farangu - 3
    LaOs - 3
    Thomamelas - 3
    Fiaryn; spool32 - 1

    This is a bad idea.

    If Elldren changes her vote and it ties back up, she can make us waste another day having to vote her out. Same goes with Thom.

    Survive as long as you can is better than just letting yourself die to the vote.

    I still think Lemminghead should die.

    I have a feeling not only will she not be involved in tonights final vote, but the vig will ignore her as well.

    Wait, I'm an idiot--Jason Todd voted for Elldren (following Thomamelas' lead), not the other way around. My bad.

    As of Post #1083, we actually stand like this:

    LemmingHead - 8
    Elldren - 4
    Farangu - 3
    LaOs - 3
    Thomamelas - 2
    Fiaryn; spool32 - 1

    (I'm heading home from work now. Will check back with the thread after some food, likely. I'd change my vote from LemmingHead to Farangu so we're no longer tied, but that brings #1 too close to #2 and also creates a tie for #2 with Elldren and Farangu.)

    Then what is the reason behind Lemminghead being suspicious? Apart from not having posted much.

    Thom and Elldren knew about a special - who was then killed. It might be chance, but it's hella more likely that purpose was behind it. Like statistically significantly more likely.

    Ok well it's getting late over here so I'm going to have to vote. The intentional tie idea doesn't have the ubiquitous support it would require. I still agree with Laos in that even if the mafia fudged it we would at least gain some possible data to go on. So partly because he is in the position to catch up with the current first place vote incase you guys change your minds and partly because Thom has fingered them as the possible leak in the soft network that our dead vigilante was a part of, I'm going to vote for Elldren.

    Right, whereas Lemminghead is up because Spec finds her suspicious and then a bandwagon was formed

    She was originally helpful and then devolved into "Oh oh I am so confused what is going on I am just gonna vote !blahblah like everyone else because WHAT is going on its all so crazy"

    From what I can gather she isn't usually like that and has been silent all day (laying low, as I would do) in hopes this bandwagon moves elsewhere.

    With Elldren backing her up (I think Ell is also mafia) I am convinced.

    That was a bunch of reading in order to catch up.

    We are not doing ties because that depends on every single player (50+) doing exactly what you need to do and that is never going to happen.

    I see, still seems more reasonable to place the wagon on either of Thom and Elldren though.

    I'll keep my vote on Thom because I don't feel either is being more suspicious than the other.

    I do however think it's important that one of them goes tonight.

    To be perfectly honest, I think it would be best if both of us go.

    Spoiler:

    I'm against ties on principle as they rarely go as desired and the only case where the mafia won't manipulate the tie is a pair of villagers

    Lemming needs more of a lead so we can get clear 2nd and 3rd places

    Well of course you would want Thom dead with you tonight to either eat up the vig kill or so you could sabotage the tie vote.

    Look, we can clear all this up very easily if someone in the mafia just tells us who is in the mafia.

    I promise if you tell us, we won't vote for you.

    OK, this seems extremely suspicious. Since Elldren was called out by Thom, she has sounded consistently upset and passive-aggressive, rather than affirmatively defending herself. She's offered no information about their soft network - not even to say that she'd talk to Savant or to confirm what Thom told us. Hell, we don't even know which of them was contacted first. The lack of info, or even the public promise to reveal info to Savant, makes me even more suspicious.

    The passive aggressive attitude is either Elldren being upset and acting as though she thinks it's hopeless to try and turn our attention away, or else it's Elldren being upset because she's mafia and she's going down either tonight or tomorrow with no influence on the village either way.

    Along with !Lemminghead's behavior described earlier by spectre, and Element Brian's extra suspicious posting patterns, Elldren seems a clear choice. Half her posts are bitter or sarcastic, and she'd apparently rather see her and Thom go down together than take out the one she should be arguing is the real mafia... so I'm inclined to follow her own advice from day 1:
    Elldren wrote:
    Well, I'm always of the opinion that if someone wants to die we should let them.

    LemmingHead for the vote.
    Elldren for the vigilante, assuming it has no better target.

    Tomorrow, we'll know if Thom has to go as well, and he can join Element Brian in the big sleep.

    Are we still looking to set up a solid third place vote? Cause Farangu is a better choice then Thomamelas.

    If one is taking out a possible mafia in a soft network, it seems silly to kill off the rest of the network before learning the results.

    It being a soft network, there's nothing saying they can't both be Mafia.

    (I don't know that they both are, just that it's completely possible.)

    Barely-active, bandwagon-jumper (though usually to the 2nd place wagon), and went from somewhat useful posts to constantly "what is going on; I'm so confused" posts. Mostly, the force of this vote is driven from TehSpectre.
