My vote for Sherriff? Whose vote wasn't thrown away? Whose was made with actual information behind it, and not just throwing darts at a name? The only people who could have made an informed vote was the Sabbat, because only they knew who was on their side.
This has nothing to do with me being new. Slightly tangential, however the rules state we are not supposed to be bringing up performance in other games in this one, as it leads to a bias. I played new a couple times, when I was new, but by the end I played confused, not new. Anyone who isn't confused by 1 night werewolf has my undying respect, as all the role swapping is just.. to much for me. Thankfully that is not the case in this game, so that is neither here nor there.
I am new at this game, but that only means I have to go look up roles to see what they do, and has very little baring on why I have voted the way I have voted.
Allow me to explain.
This has been a rough pair of weeks for me, and if I had been asked to join the game yesterday I would have said no, because I've been so busy. Even over the weekend I had little down time, but that is only why I've been so quiet. The reason I can not point my finger at someone and say guilty, is because I have no information. Everyone is pointing fingers at someone, and short of information myself, all I can do is nod, agree with someone else, and instead of "throwing my vote away", just hope for the best.
I am not very fond of playing against steep odds, and with a random vote there is a much better chance of killing my own, than lynching the dreaded Sword of Caine. Honestly, I feel like I am playing my role perfectly. I'm a Caitiff. I'm quiet, meaningless, scared I'll be killed for no good reason, and in the end I am sure to make one fine scapegoat. Quite the caitiff indeed. =P
I'm not sure what you all want from me? The main difference between how I vote, and how everyone else seems to be voting, is I am much more conservative, and not as willingly to just point my finger at people at random. That's all. As I see it so far, without anyone's role being revealed, all we are doing is shooting in the dark. I also understand now, at least, why no role revealing is going on. It would make the seer an obvious target, which would be bad indeed. If the seer dies before being able to reveal anything, though, then what a tragedy that is.
Don't pity me because I am confused, and don't show mercy because I am new. I expect no special treatment, and if I am next on the gallows, then so be it. But I know my own innocence.
I suspect Mint. I suspect Sera. I suspect Rel. I suspect Guy.
