    I’m being mean to you, but Sloth isn’t?
    Is this all you have to say about that post?

    Rhand is jumping to conclusions that aren't necessarily true, which is a thing he does. It's NAI.

    Shadow, I like how much he's thinking ahead with 62. I like the... efficiency he's trying to achieve with his plan. I'm willing to vote with it.

    Umami as I said is coming off as noncommital initially. Could be a thing, but we'll see I guess.

    GJ is sitting back and analyzing stuff, which is a thing he does. It's NAI.

    Vaimes is doing stuff, and is fine?

    Sloth also doing things, and is also fine?

    I do not think that volunteering to be in the first mission is telling at all unless it fails.

    @Sloth: I think rejected teams can be used to weigh against in-thread stances looking for consistency. Progression is one tool we have to solve this game.

    I think similarly, seeing who accepts a mission is relevant as well. If 5 people accept a mission, at least one Spy has done so, and that could be relevant. At that point, consistency sometimes takes a back seat to "things Spies need to do to win".

    @GJ: What do you think of Umami? He keeps asking things without really asserting any opinions. Do you think this is AI?

    Vaimes: I like you better than Sloth, that's why I care more.

    Vaimes is being mean to me.
    Maybe it's residual salt for GoT.
    That was still hilarious.

    Ok so, the reason I came in trying to get unimpeded thoughts from shadow is very simple: This is not Mafia. The key difference between this and Mafia is that there are no flips. We cannot reliably get hard alignment information (with the exception of failing missions), so every nugget of relevant info needs to be mined if possible. I was hoping that shadow would come into the game giving some plan to handle the first mission. Unfortunately, I was not explicit in asking for that in my first post, so therefore he didn't answer before others had said some stuff that probably influenced what he would have said otherwise.

    Yes, the first mission is almost auto-Success save for some ballsy vet Spy teams. Yes, since there's no hard info to go off of, it probably doesn't matter who gets sent from a top-down standpoint. But it's probably been long enough since Shadow's played Resistance/Avalon that he probably hasn't spent a whole lot of time looking at all the angles of what such a plan might result in, therefore potentially proposing a plan that, while not optimal, was honest/unconventional. The inverse of this would just be knowing offhand that the first mission doesn't provide much info and just standing two people to it.

    Also, his proposal might have included two specific people (one of which may or may not have been him, which could be relevant). If there isn't all this theory in the thread right now, the why of Shadow's choices become more convoluted. That's why I was pushing to avoid that before Shadow had given his opinion.

    I'm gonna start a second post for specific questions/responses so this doesn't get too convoluted.

    Why can’t it be both? If he’s a rebel he has to solve everyone eventually.

    Realistically I don’t think it makes a difference either way.
    Which is why I'm not more annoyed. What you did probably won't make much difference.

    I'm taking more about talking too much about who can go on the first mission before Shadow gives his theory, etc.

    How do you think the first mission should be used, Shadow?
    Also, I think I was in every Resistance game. Wasn't in Avalon. I've played quite a few IRL games.

    Vaimes: Well, for instance now if Shadow picks you for the first mission, I don't know if he wants to solve you or if it's because you asked.

    I mean, I'm not saying not to buy I'd like Shadow's unimpeded opinion on who should go on the mission.

    As these are the types of things that we need to solve this game.

    Ok it looks like Shadow is first leader.

    Before I throw my ideas out there I'll let Shadow say things.
