Omelas: Day 3
What else, what else belongs in the joyous city? The sense of victory, surely, the celebration of courage. But as we did
without clergy, let us do without soldiers. The joy built upon successful slaughter is not the right
kind of joy; it will not do; it is fearful and it is trivial. A boundless and generous contentment, a
magnanimous triumph felt not against some outer enemy but in communion with the finest and
fairest in the souls of all men everywhere and the splendor of the world's summer; this is what
swells the hearts of the people of Omelas, and the victory they celebrate is that of life. I really
don't think many of them need to take drooz.

Excitement is in the air as you make your way back to the great field.  You stop at a provisioner's booth and select a sweet, buttery pastry stuffed with fresh figs and cheese.  You munch happily as you watch the youth on their horses line up for the first race of the day.  The horses' hindquarters are bunched, ready to leap forward.  The wait goes on...and on.  Anticipation turns to anxiety as you scan your neighbors in the crowd.  Someone is missing.  Your eyes leap to the northern hills.  And yes, a figure makes its way to the top of steep trail. Just before descending on the other side, he looks back.  His hand raises, but stops short of a wave.  And then he turns and is gone.

that hadn't occurred to me. What has occurred to me that that all the clear town reads are being picked off with remarkable efficiency. Both by lynching and by nk's. The fact is that scum have done well to get this to happen.

Nostrum
NESB

Ksen

3 of them are scum.

The main two things so far this game, that I can't make sense of are:

1. The bandwagon on tw, which I think was started by Nos.
2. Testy's original read on Nos.

Over a couple of games, I've come to think things I don't understand are scummy. So that's kinda where I'm focusing.

You mean here on d3? I don't think Testy accused you until later on during d1.

Nah. Testy never accused you, until he voted for you in post #182, on page 8 of d1.

Prior to that he had said he can't read you.

Was TW scum or town?  I cannot tell from his role.

Here are the vote counts for both days
Day 1
Vote Count

rachmarie - 4.5 (gib, Y.B, Magicziggy, Nostrum)
ksen - 4 (MikeS, Timewave, Testy Calibrate, rachmarie)
teeming brown mass - 3 (borealis, ksen,  laughing dog)
Magicziggy - 1 (teeming brown mass)
MikeS - 1 (divagreen)
Nostrum - 1 (Testy Calibrate)
Timewave - 1 (Nostrum)

Day 2
Vote Count

Timewave - 4.5 (Nostrum, Teeming Brown Mass, ksen, Y.B)
Testy Calibrate - 4 (laughing dog, nesb, borealis, gib)
MikeS - 2 (Testy Calibrate, Timewave)

If TW was town, in both lynchs, nostrum's vote was the winning vote to kill a townie.   Which suggests that nostrum is scum, and that his vote saved a scum on both days.  Notice that Y.B. also is 2 for 2 in effective town lynchings if TW was town.

If TW was scum, then nesb's comment in this thread about not understanding the bw on a TW suggests to me nesb is scum.
