    I still don't think you can get much out of trying to take apart someone's language. It's way too easy to lie on the internet, and I don't think the wolves are stupid enough to do those major slip ups like everyone seems to be hoping for. From what I understand of the game so far, it looks like the seers are really the townie's best chance. (At the moment, anyway. Am I wrong?)

    Personally, I think the psychic is much more useful. Mainly because you get 2/3 scries a night. Not to mention that you are sure of your scries even early on unlike the insane/normal seer. The psychic may not be a great offensive tool but he's a much more useful in terms of logic games.

    I actually believe that you ought to dissect what people say. Sort of like that adage: Thoughts become words, words become thoughts and then words become actions. So in order to know what the person is thinking you can sort of go backwards. Besides, words and actions are pretty much what the average townie has at his disposal and nothing else.

    IMO, the best way to win is to do something that forces the wolves to act. Just throwing random accusations at people when the wolves have no clear incentive to act doesn't seem productive.

    Hmm, okay. Thanks for being helpful to a newbie. Anyway, from reading the threads, some basic things I have found out are:

    1) Don't form alliances
    2) If you have a role, keep it quiet
    3) Assume everyone is a wolf until proven otherwise

    ... Can't think of anything else beyond that.

    But anyway, what kind of thing will "force the wolves to act"?

    Well...

    If you look at TWG #2, the wolves did do a major slip up.

    Relf was the grandfather wolf. He had the ability of never being found. Whenever he was scried.. 3 out of 4 times he would show up as a "normal townie." Only the insane seer would be able to scry him for sure as a wolf.

    Anyway, Relf tried to pretend he was the seer. It costed him his life.

    He wanted true_panda lynched because it was a well-known fact that true_panda was the bulletproof townie. In other words, the only way to kill true_panda was through a big lynching.

    Relf wanted to pretend to be a seer so he could accuse true_panda as a wolf. Kaze made a fake pm for him saying "guess what! you're the seer! -cpr!"

    Unfortunately, Kaze messed up on my message for two reasons. (1) there was a generic message in all my messages that only seers saw. (2) Kaze forgot to include the "gun" in my signature.

    Relf was easily identified as being wrong. He was lynched

    It starts in this thread: http://www.stoptazmo.com/showthread....highlight=seer

    unfortunately, the link that shows the actual fake pm is dead.



    There are ways to pressure the wolves.

    Oh, I see. Well, thanks for all the help, all. I think I've more or less got it now.

    @kayangelus: All I can say is "poor you", rofl.

    I would say "and what's that", but you're not allowed to say anything when you're dead, or something.

    But sharing strategies isn't sharing suspicions, no?
