Sorry, fatherly duties.

I use the wire on Kazz.

Alright, I'm not enough of a Nazi to advance the day if you were busy.

Kazz is a Thing.

However, time is still up, so there's no chance to switch your votes or throw dynamite.

The vote test goes through on Hardly Ideal, who is human.

Night roles.

Okay... I've been doing some testing, and after running the numbers on Niku the first night, I am 100% sure I am insane. Which makes me the sanest man alive.

I can tell who is and isn't a Thing.

So far everyone I've tested is a Thing, which means they're not, but I've scientifically, rationally proven my reliable insanity.

Hypothesis: the Things know their loss is imminent, and so they have drugged everyone in an attempt to prevent anyone from waking up.

Speak for yourselves, I've been guarding the door to my room with a shovel this whole time. Like, it's starting to cramp somethin' awful.

Kazz bursts into flame from being so flamin' gay.

9 players are just Thingin' out, man.

Newbie
Hardly Ideal
Kayma
Mothra
Leeham
Niku
Sharkey
fbm
Zara

3 players are done with this thang.

Grath - Thing
Caithness - Thing - Dynamite
Kazz - Thing

It is now Day 5. Zara has the wire. With 9 players, it takes 5 votes to test.

Zara, once you wire someone, I will no longer be voting for you.

OK, I'm taking suggestions if anyone has some reasonable logic. I mean Sharkey and Mothra both claim to be doctors, and they can't both have been thinged during the night, right? So I want to hear some arguments here.

Also because some days have ended faster than I expected, I'm using my hammertime right now.

I think I maybe might just be paranoid. All I know is that I've been exactly wrong about everyone so far, as is my way.

Sharkey is either not a Thing or everyone is a Thing to me.

We have two dead things—Grath and Kazz—and one dead thing dynamiter—Caithness. We have no vanilla innocent roles, so I'm pretty sure Grath and Kazz were the originals. There have been four nights since we began, so there should still be three things living. I am removing my vote from Zara for the time being to prevent a last-minute pile-on, as two innocent players voting for a third innocent player is all it will take for the things to rush through a bad test.

Kayma asked us to test Sharkey, and Sharkey responded by announcing himself the sane doctor. Assuming this isn't some sort of long con by the things, this makes me think Kayma is also some flavor of doctor who suddenly got a different result with his nightly test, and wanted to prove himself sane or insane so he could share data with us. Sharkey's response was to point a bunch of people out as at-the-time innocents; If he was telling the truth, Kayma is probably either an insane doctor, or maybe the second sane doctor.

So, that's the scenario if they were both telling the truth. If Kayma isn't a doctor but Sharkey was telling the truth—well, Kayma should still be innocent, because of Sharkey's innocent-o-scope positive test on him, but instead of being a doctor, Kayma's just itching to light something up with a flamethrower or dynamite. Let's consider the reverse: Kayma IS a doctor, but Sharkey's a thing. We can't draw much conclusion from Sharkey's claim in this case, but presumably Kayma will be able to tell us something useful once Sharkey's affiliation is revealed. Unfortunately, if this is what actually transpired, then I'd assume it's pretty likely that Kayma got turned last night.

I was going to consider the possibility that they're both lying but, is that... is that even possible? There were three things alive at the time these claims were made, and one of them was Kazz. I can't eliminate the possibility that the other two things were Sharkey and Kayma, but this level of subterfuge is basically unheard of.

As for Mothra, he could be insane, paranoid, or lying. What I want to know is, exactly who did you test, and when? We may be able to draw more conclusions based on your answers, and it could make a pretty huge difference as to who Zara should test.

Yeah, no. I'm not that fucking clever. I'm still a sane, unturned doctor, and fanboy is a thing.

Hiss boom baa.

fbm was a Thing. He was also carrying (worryingly) a flamethrower.

With 8 players left, it still takes 5 votes to test.

The day continues.

That's one flamethrower and... one stick of dynamite left? For up to two Things? Cutting it tight.

Remember that as long as a Flamer is left, the Things can lose, because Flamers burn before Things assimilate, so if the Thing that assimilates that night is burned, the Things don't get a turn that night.

Ding ding ding.

Unfortunately, I still haven't been able to determine what manner of fucked up, for-profit online medical school I got my doctorate from, but every single person I have put my stethoscope up to has come back as a Thing. Most recently LeeHam.

I would really like to hear a complete accounting of the testing targets of Kayma, Mothra, AND Sharkey before I cast a vote.
