From my re-read (for about the 15th time, as I don't know the show and there are so many rules!)) it looks like they kill alternate nights but get to see a true name each every night. Also think I'm with the Prof in thinking that perhaps it wasn't the best move to out yourself....but won't go into any more detail in case it encourages the dnh to kill you!

Not sure about the day night time timings but going to bed now and not sure if the vote willl be over when I'm back. In case it is then my non-vote is not because of inactivity but I would be voting completely randomly - except that I wouldn't vote for itachi (who I think is most likely task force). sinistral or myself!

Will add my vote if there has been more activity in the morning. In the meantime ... *chooses a completely randomly inactive name and please read nothing into it, I am just starting discussion!* woon, care to explain why we shouldn't lynch you?

I agree that a people need to start talking...we're not following Sinistral's advice to keep up a conversation. I'm trying to hold up my end, but I can't do it alone. :P

That being said, to move the topic forward I will vote. I already said that I found Bb's poke at itachi to be a little odd, but it's worth seeing what itachi has to say on the matter. So my vote is going to him. Maybe this will jumpstart the Task Force. ;)

Shinigami King: Y
Roster:
1) Dawh - voting for itachi
2) Prof. Templeton - voting for Brandonb
3) Sinistral
4) Cherry Lane
5) Grey Cells
6) Itachi-san
7) Brandonb
8) Joe's Student
9) Rene83
10) Woon
11) FoolontheHill
12) Ben Law

This is purely to try to start a conversation; I don't really have a strong opinion about itachi's guilt or innocence and I fully intend to change my vote once a better target becomes apparent. It's better to pick someone for a reason (even a very flimsy reason) than to pick someone at random...

So, so far we have Bb, who has gained a vote because he said he wouldn't start off with Itachi; and Itachi, basically because he's the only one mentioned in the night post.

I'm getting a deja vu feeling. There was a game recently (Heroes, I think??; they're all running together) where these were the top 2 suspects on the first day. (ok, that one was my fault, I was a villain who set them up), and both were innocent then. I'd hate for that to happen this time. All too often the first day becomes a choice between the first two names thrown out, or the first to speak out, just because people would rather bandwagon than go out on a limb. I'm guilty of it, too. And that's fine if we have a reasonable suspicion of at least one of them. But I don't think we do in this case.

Not that I have anyone else to suspect yet, so I'm not contributing much to the dialogue. I just think we need to brainstorm more before we start lining up the votes.

edit: oh, after all that, nevermind. I see we have a third candidate. Sorry I missed BLs post.

ok, somehow I missed the purple. In the red and the blue, two opposing characters are doing similar actions at the same time. The purple (red+blue) applies to both. That is, they each have a plan....


Yep, that's it. I was trying to accomplish with colored words what I couldn't with cinematography...gotta set the mood ;P


Bb does bring up a good point which I had not considered... I was under the impression that the Shinigami only got to act on alternating nights, and not that they got two chances to ID each night. Ysan, could you confirm this please? Looking back over the rules I fear I may have misinterpreted this. :(


They use their Shinigami Eyes each Night.

I'm not sure what you and Bb are talking about. Do the Shinigami have BTSC? It doesn't say so as far as I can see. That's what he's implying, isn't it? :unsure:


No, only ones who have BTSC are Misa and Light.

OK, I'm back, and before I read anything else I just want to say that my earlier idea was terrible b/c we would not know the difference if they actually did the name of a Task Force member instead of Ryuk. OK, now time to go read.

I don't think I buy into Itachi being a baddie and attacking himself to throw off suspicion.

Hmm... I'm trying to figure out if you deliberately misinterpreted my statement as a jab at Itachi, or if it was just an honest mistake.

...if he is one of the DNH trying to throw suspicion off of himself. This has become a cliche, and I don't care to make that accusation.

NVM, I think it's pretty clear that I was not implicating him, but almost defending him from the post's mention of his name.

You're high on my radar PT... actually, since I have nothing else on anyone else... you are my #1.

I must say congrats to Yoruichi.. this is extremly hard (in the best way).

So far we have mini Bb/Itachi thing going on again, and I would prefer to avoid voting for one or the other. Although I agree with the view that Bb mentioning the clich├ęd trick of Itachi trying throw suspicion off himself as a tiny bit suspicious, I think if it was Bb trying to cast suspicion on Itachi, as a DNH himself, he would have realised people would have seen through it.

To be clearer, if Bb (as a DNH) was trying to cast suspicion on Itachi by saying that Itachi selected himself/(was selected) in the Death Note, I don't think Bb would have brought it up as he would have realised people would be suspicious of him doing so (as PT and dawh are). So I believe Bb was merely saying aloud what he thought every one else would have thought anyway... maybe? But not as DNH and not trying to lay suspicion on Itachi. (Btw I'm not saying he's TaskForce either, I'm just saying that his quote isn't what we should go on to lynch somebody..)

Am I making much sense here? Trying to construct these sentences so that they're clear is hard :rolleyes: .

----------

Would just like to add that PT's Post in reply to Bb's thoughts struck me as... strange. Having now played a few games with PT it seemed a unlike him. I thought he seemed pretty decisive in his vote, his response to Bb's was the first, and he voted right away, without hearing any discussion on it... is that his usual style?

I'm not making anything of it really but as we've so little to go on i thought it was best say whatever thoughts I had. And that was it, I thought PT's statement was odd.




**Btw BenLaw thanks for giving me that lovely pink colour ;), was just waiting for something I could comment on. Even now I haven't got much to say :)

Btw I'm not trying to cast suspicion on PT exactly, but you all know when you read something and just think, "there's something about that post I can't quite put my finger on". Well it was one of those just...

Thank you ;P.

So about who's getting lynched today... ... ... :blink:

Hmmm...I was hoping not to have to do this, but I may have to implement my "Apples for Activity" idea... -_-
