Okay, now what?  ???

Someone with an night action investigative night action or a good hunch calls for someone's rc. If we've got no good hunches or investigative players with anything productive to report we can just go back to calling for random rcs.

It's also a good idea to look back over the previous day and figure out why the kills in the night happened the way they did.  For example: why Black Magic?--obviously he was a cop, but did he do anything that revealed this fact?  Or was he putting undo pressure on someone?  Although at this stage of the game, the hit may very well have been random or deceptive(meant to make us suspicious of whoever he was suspicious of the previous day, in which case we may very well end up back with random RCs).

Well there was this:

If Sketchy doesn't RC today then I'm voting to lynch him tomorrow.  I don't think there is an RC out there that would make me think otherwise.
Any time I see something screech across a room and latch onto someone's neck, and the guy screams and tries to get it off, I have to laugh, because what is that thing?

we're probably going to lynch him anyway. Bram Cohen is way to big a stretch.

But there's still a long way before night so I'm hoping to get more info and am waiting for someone with something to go on.

I don't know, that's an awfully queer RC, even for Sketchy. I would expect Sketchy to pick an actual pirate but then claim that he has a treasure map that he receives clues from each night that will help us in the game.

And if anyone does say that, I'm lynching you.

I am definitely keeping sketchy as a question mark but I'd like to hear from one or two others first. I have no particular suspicion based on night actions, so I am going to:

Vote: Neutral Milk

If anyone has a better idea, I'd be happy to change gears.

I welcome a return to the days where we lynch Sketchy on general principle ;)

I would really like to have 1Pirate RC.
He seems to be avoiding the question of his identity a little too carefully.

If this weren't your first game, I'd be convinced you were mafia because of your poor line of thinking, and would consider your pressure a scum driven bandwagon. 

Basically, here's how I see things:

This was your last post before you accused me of being scum
Noonish Eastern time I believe.
I won't be holding up the vote.

vote: Sketchy

If anybody needs me I'll be drinkin rum.

Then I made this post:

[lubber talk]It's really best if we get as many RCs as we can today(we've got four and we can get up to nine without any votes carrying over) so I'm kind of wondering if we should wait a little bit(as in an hour or two) for Sketchy but then move on to someone else.  I'm trying to put some math together, but I'm pretty sure if we don't get enough RCs out within a certain number of days, the mafia could use the rule to start forcing no-lynches even when we seem to have a large number of townies alive.

All the new people have RC'd I think, but just for future reference: When you RC, just give your name, do not give your power, even if you don't have one, until pressured to do so.  The mafia will be looking for specials and in a B2B, we're not likely to have many investigative powers or protective roles, so it's important you don't narrow things down for them by declaring yourself a VT.[/lubbertalk]

Arr, we still be waitin' on Mr Ben for his fiction/non-fiction claim.  In the while:
pressure Sketchy

Now, I did indicate that, in the interests of gathering as many RCs as possible, we should move past Sketchy if he didn't respond soon, but I did throw a pressure on him in the end.  However, my second paragraph concerning the importance of not power claiming unless necessary is counter-productive if I'm scum.  Were I scum, I'd want all the VTs to say so when they RC so I can narrow down the field of possible cops(or docs) and kill them before they can reveal any investigation results.

Yet somehow, you suddenly abandon Sketchy and start putting pressure on me:

Me'Thinks my rum clouded mine doth not remember 1Pirates Role name.
That scallywag is pullin a fast one.

Since then, your entire rationale for my RC has been "He won't tell me who he is".  That's it, nothing else.  Players are not going to RC just because one or two people ask.  For all I know, you could very well be scum thinking that I might be another cop and are trying to force me out in the open.  Sometimes a bandwagon might seem inevitable(we had some of that yesterday) and a player will RC before all the votes and pressures come in, but by and large, you wait until the number of votes and pressures is greater than the likely number of remaining mafia before RCing(otherwise you're letting the mafia control the game).

Quite frankly you're reminding me of SnarlPatrick in the Battle Royale mafia who jumped down my throat after I made a reasonable suggestion(and for those of you that don't remember, SnarlPatrick was mafia in that game), but I think it's more likely that you're new at this and don't realize that what I'm doing isn't all that abnormal.
