Quote from Artifice 101@iLord: How do you justify the idea of a nebulous "Town Empowerer" when I've already claimed Town Motivator?
I'm absolutely stunned I didn't come back to this game in its Night phase. What are you guys seeing here that I'm not? He's not saying anything. He's claiming the Mod can't tell him what his ability does.
...tell him? Given: "Hey zindabad, what would happen if I motivated a generic Cop?" iLord can't even say how the Clock would be effected when claiming??
I call BS of the highest degree.
Confirm vote, again.
Quote from Pale Mage
I thought you'd appreciate that.
Quote from IsoWhat happened to your scum read of me, iLord?
Also, how the hell are you supposed to be able to tell what your ability does?
Quote from Pale Mage:/
Well...why don't you do us a favor and give a read on those on your list (keep AE on it for this exercise) and share your findings. Pretty sure you're getting lynched today, but just in case I'm right and a whole lot of other people are wrong we might as well have your input.
And, of course, if I'm wrong and a whole of other people are right, the power is in your hands to give up the sham.
I kinda hate I think you're town either way. I totally had my Doctor Horrible reference cocked and loaded before I did my read of you earlier this Day. I was so going to drop the "your mask is slipping" in resplendent dramatic tones.
Quote from Pale MageYou certainly aren't going to bring pressure against me or anyone else by sitting on your hands.
I'd like your explanation for AE since you and I have had that talk before and you dropped him from your reading list like a hot rock. What put him back on?
Okay. I've been thinking about this, and I think you're wrong. I think Zindabad knows damn well the difference between an equinox and a solstice. I think he's trying to convey that you are placed between the two extremes, as indeed the equinoxes are.
So...I believe you there.
Quote from Liquidity CrisisDid he say this to you, or is this just your inference?
Quote from Pale Mage
Thanks for the link. You haven't addressed why you haven't named me as a suspect prior to now, nor have you named any other suspect, unless that's what you intended by mentioning Wessel's playstyle. Since you cited PoE as a reason for your suspicion on me, it shouldn't be much trouble to provide your list.
Fair enough. Other valid options?
Weren't you curious? It never hurts to ask, even if you expect no answer. How did you expect to know how best to leverage your ability if you knew nothing about it?
Quote from Pale Mage »What about the flavor makes clear he means the solstices? I want specifics, please. It's unclear what you mean.
Quote from IsoSounds pretty useless to me.
Quote from kpacaExactly my point.
Quote from kpacaI would expect you to give a better description of what "empower" does exactly. Does it provide a double shot? And extra charge? The ability to move seasons? What the heck does it do? If that means figuring out how to apply it to cops/docs/vigs specifically so be it.
Quote from Wrath_of_DoGIt seems you've dodged the question of "WHY WESSEL?"
So tell us. Why target Wessel, of all people, with your ability?
Quote from kpacaNot explicitly but something more to that end of the spectrum than what you provided for sure.
Quote from Pale MageDid you not ask the mod, then?
Quote from Pale Mage »You didn't target me last night based on my play today? Since that's obviously false, maybe you could elaborate on what made Wessel so townie and what made me no Not in your estimation.
If you've thought I'm such a strong suspect, why haven't you brought it up? It's been a long Day.
Who else is on your scum list at this point?
Quote from Pale Mage »Why not Dancing Mad, btw?
Quote from IsoYou mean Alpha's ability, iLord?
Quote from infectiousbalothI really have to wonder why you never asked the mod for clarification of exactly what your role did. Moreover, what would it mean to you to make, say a cop more "powerful"? Or a vig? Knowing that we for sure have a motivator and thus, the roles are VERY unlikely to be the same.
Quote from infectiousbalothAgreed. You're totally obvscum anyway. #jokeisajoke
But there are much townier players (Pale Mage) who did not claim using an ability (Pale Mage) and other players (AI, WoD) who made it clear that they have abilities they can use in any season.
Quote from kpacaThe most damning thing to me is that ilord can't explain his own ability. I'm something of a role pm gaffe expert, and even I at least know my own ability.
Quote from Pale MageEquinox is in Spring and Autumn. Solstice is Summer and Winter.
Quote from Pale MageIt's either a lie or awful flavor. Possibly a fake-claim deliberately written poorly so the scum team had something to do (Oh, hey...this claim is a trap...but if I tweak it I'm good...)
...or maybe it's a deliberate mistake going back to what Zindabad's warning about mass claims.
iLord needs to elaborate on the ability and his choice. Wessel needs to give us feedback.
