The meta/tonal townread is very townie, sure. But kim's problem here has never been cognitive or rhetorical ability, it's been keeping calm under pressure, something like stagefright. People can and do work past stagefright all the time.

Yes, it would be her best scum game yet, but eventually one of them has to be, right?

STOP POSTING.

GPD (3): ExiledAtHome, Keirador, kimbyrle
Keirador (1): GPD
ExiledAtHome (1): Zoomzip

For the third lynch, GPD has been selected as the target. After a brief struggle, you drag him to the town square and behead him. He bleeds just like the rest of you, however. GPD was town.

N3 has begun. N3 ends 24 hours from now, on Friday, Jan 26 at 12:00 PM PST.

(Holy hell my internet is crap. This is the third time I've tried to start the day today.)

DAY START!

Sunrise on Day 4 sees only three of you gather for deliberation. ZZ has met an untimely end at the hand of an assassin's knife. ZZ was town.

D4 ends at 2:00 PM Monday Jan 29, Pacific time. Note that because the GM has a class starting immediately after the deadline, she may End Day significantly before resolving the lynch. Enjoy your squirming time.

Fucking hell, Keir...

What were those EOD musings about Kim?

If you're the Doc, and were thinking I was scum, I could see you trying to lay the seeds for the idea that you're open to a Kim lynch today. The implication being, you're trying to tempt a NK of ZZ, which you'd only do if you actually had an available protect order for him last night (meaning you'd probably protected Kim the night prior, as I doubt you protected me or GPD).

But, ZZ is dead. So that wasn't your motive.

Were those the sincere thoughts of a Doc coming to grips with the reality that he's likely about to die? Were those genuine sentiments you were leaving me and ZZ to chew on?

Yeah, genuine sentiments I was leaving you and ZZ with.

And maaaaybe breadcrumbing that I wouldn't protect kim last night when I actually did. That had almost no chance of working, but then I had almost no choice but to give it a shot.

Going by the Tompkins Doctrine*, I should be sticking with EAH unless a re-read reveals something pretty radical, just to be clear that's still my starting point.

I'm still working on thinking over this situation. But whichever of you is town, ask yourself: why would scum!Kim kill the person with the biggest townread on her, instead of taking the guaranteed kill on the doctor? I would have killed Keir, knowing ZZ's vote was on EAH at EOD and likely to stay there.
